One hc i have is like that danny killed a lot of ghosts by destroying their cores(undergrowth etc)but he thinks they respawn or sth and the ghost zone is scared shitless cause hes so carless with murder and everyone fears him and he doesnt get why
Are you telling me that Danny has basically become a crazed murderer and he doesn’t even realize it? Oh my god.
A ghost core is basically the ghost’s heart. Without it, the ghost doesn’t exist. So, imagine one day Danny is fighting oh I don’t know, an ectopus. Say that in a fit of annoyance, his punch has more power behind it than normal and it drives right into the ghost. Like, breaks through the “skin” and keeps going until it hits something that zaps him with a ton of energy. It’s the core, protecting itself. Danny, since he’s always annoyed, fills his hand with energy and kaboom, the ectopus is gone and he is covered in ectoplasm. Danny doesn’t think anything of it, its 4 am and he’s tired.
One ectoblast aimed a bit too well is how the next one dies. It doesn’t take long for Danny to realize that these ghosts have a weak point that isn’t guarded like the more powerful ones. It’s a quick and easy way to get shit done and continue on with his life. They may be animals, but they are ghosts. It’s literally murder.
Skulker thinks Danny has gone batshit crazy. He’s never actually killed another ghost, just hunted for sport. All his talk of using Danny as a pelt is a joke. He likes the catch and release aspect of it all. Even Vlad Masters is horrified when he finds out. But none of them wanna say anything since they think he’s doing it on purpose.
Danny wonders why he hasn’t seen an ectopus in a while.
