5H deserve to win something. I literally 10000% agree. They work their asses off. They’re seriously so talented and just like wonderful people. They go above and beyond in so many ways. but they lost this one??? This ONE simple award. being bitter & resentful and making jokes about Ashton’s father’s absence??? and making jokes about him self harming???? and being straight up cruel??? and saying shitty things to 5sos fans???? literally won’t change anything??? you are just being gross and negative and hateful to a person who did not in any way control what happened so yes offense…. what the fuck are you doing
I love Riliane. I love Riliane, the “evil” princess who brutally murdered anyone who she felt was even mildly unpleasant (she killed someone just for smiling). I love Riliane, the petulant child who surrounded herself in extravagant dresses, dolls, and desserts while leaving the rest of her country struggling to survive. I love Riliane, the jealous teenager who starts a genocide over a broken heart and a rejected proposal.
I love Riliane, the child whose cards were stacked against her from the start, being possessed by two demons without her consent due to circumstances beyond her control. I love Riliane, the 14-year-old girl living in a palace full of people, yet alone like the sun, without anyone who truly loved her. I love Riliane, the daughter who just wanted to be strong like her mother.
I love Riliane, the sister that realizes too late that she had what she wanted all along, the other half she had been subconsciously been looking for.
I love Riliane Rin, the new nun who refuses to lift a finger without a threat to her meal ticket, or worse, her pride. I love Rin, the girl who gradually, after years of living in austerity, finally asks for forgiveness for her sins.
There isn’t one thing I don’t love about Riliane, the girl who goes from being a selfish, self-absorbed, tyrannical royal who single-handedly destroyed an empire and threw several more into chaos, to a compassionate nun, filled with regret, wishing only for an eternity of peace.
in reference to the danny phantom ageing thing, i personally like to go with the immortal idea. like danny keeps ageing, albeit reallllly slowly, until he reaches about 40 in ageing years.
his ghost core is made to keep regenerating itself, and because his ghost half is so perfectly intertwined with his human dna, it starts doing that with his human cells too. his ghostly regenerating powers work at a rate way faster than the human body, and so eventually it catches up with danny. his cells are now regenerating at a rate faster than they can age, keeping danny from ever being able to grow old.
i think, even in the show, danny couldnt die.. because, and lets be honest here, if he couldve - he wouldve. surviving the portal once was lucky enough as it is but, 2 times? 3? 4 if you count what happened in the ghost zone on pp?? nah. i dont buy it. there is no way danny could’ve survived that if he couldve died. so, logically, he cant die. his ghost half wont let him.
i think eventually danny wouldve came out to his parents about his ghost half - they were bound to find out anyways. i refuse to accept what happened in pp as canon, so were going off the basis that that never happened. i dont think danny wouldve told anyone else his secret though. danny would be horrified if people learned his secret and thought, hey.. danny got his powers through an accident with a portal.. maybe i could get powers too! nah. theres no way in hell danny would let that happen, besides, i think he likes being able to live a normal life. well, as normal as a part human part ghosts life can get.
eventually they all start growing up. danny’s parents died a few years back, he was really upset but it wasnt anything he couldnt handle, he had support from tucker and sam of course, and thats all he really needed.
its not until one day, sitting on the porch with his friends, does danny realize anything is wrong. sams got bags under her eyes and tuckers hair has started going gray and danny. well you look exactly like you did when we were 40! the laughter from this comment quickly dies off as they realize just how accurate that statement was, realization dawning on them, danny quickly takes off towards clockworks tower.
a few breakdowns later and danny finally comes to terms with his fate. he was going to live forever, while everyone he knows dies. clockwork tries to assure him that he’ll always be available to talk to, but danny knows clockwork is very busy, and even then its still just not the same. he was alone. danny fakes his death soon after, it wouldnt be long until someone else started noticing his predicament.
he continues to visit sam and tucker until the end, and they make him promise not to lose sight of himself.. and not to forget who they were. he swears through shakey breaths and salty tears. sam is the first to go, and tucker dies too not long after. jazz died years ago in a car accident. he was alone now.
he moves to germany or france or some place foreign and begins a new life - he had always wanted to visit a new country anyways. he never stays for too long in fear of someone finding out who he really was. he always uses a different name and never visits the same place twice unless he is certain no one will remember him. he still thinks about his old friends and the adventures they use to go on, but less and less as the years go by.
it had been a couple hundred years since he last visited amity park. the ghost attacks had decreased greatly when his parents his died and the portal was shut down, and it had been barely 100 years after that when the ghost-human treaty was signed - there was no longer any need for danny phantom.
amity was no longer the small town it was when he once lived there, however, the ‘ghost capital of the world’, birthplace of ghost technology, was now a major city. it made danny a bit sad to see his hometown filled with major businesses and tourists, it no longer had the rural charm he onced loved - but things were different now and he had long ago accepted that nothing would ever stay the same. he wasnt depressed about the past anymore he was just.. existing
he walked along the boardwalk and smiled sadly as a strange sense of deja vu washed over him. this was his town, but at the same time it wasnt. he stopped in the center of the plaza and glanced up at the statue in front of him. a signed told him that the statue was commemorative tribute in honor of the ‘world’s first ghost researchers’ - jack and maddy fenton. he didnt realize his eyes had glazed over until he saw another person staring at the statue with same sad longing that he had.
he immediately froze.
he had completely forgotten about him. in all his years of accepting his lonely fate, it had completely slipped his mind that another person shared the same fate with him - the only other half ghost in existence. vlad seemed to notice him too because his eyes had suddenly gone wide with recognition. they rushed at eachother.
danny hugged vlad like it was the last time he would ever be able to hug another person - and vlad hugged him the same way right back. after a few moments of clinging to eachother they finally broke apart. danny, of course, immediately began questioning vlad. asking if he was still up to the same old evil plots. vlad sighed, filled with exhaustion and remorse, he explained that he long since realized that happiness was not something that could be obtained through his evil doings, and that now all he was trying to do was life his eternity peacefully and without being found out.
that was all danny needed to hear and he immediately accepted vlads words as truth. after all, he knew that all vlad really ever needed was a second chance, his encounters with dan had shown him that. and besides, it was all in the past anyways. he could hardly remember vlad being his enemy.
they decided to have lunch together at a nearby café. they talked all afternoon about what they had been doing all these years and laughed at how different things were in the future. a strange sense of melancholy passed through the pair as they reluctantly decided it was time to go their own ways - but not without giving eachother their contact information, of course. you never know when u might need someone to talk to about the past with.
a few years went by and, much to both of their suprises, they ended up moving to the same town to start a new life. they decided it wouldnt hurt to get a flat together, after all they are the only people who truly understand the other. its hard at first, despite their obvious similarities, they still were two very different people. it takes a while but eventually they learn to get use to eachother, even growing a bit fond of eachother in the process. thats why, when they decide its time to go start a new life somewhere else, they decide to do it together. it couldnt hurt to have a friend.
-pompous pep ideas start here, so if ur not interested in the ship just ignore this part-
eventually they end up dating. it started ut slowly at first, a backrub or two when the other way upset and missing their past lives, occassionally cuddling on the couch when things got too much and they couldnt stand being lonely anymore. they arent sure exactly when they went from friends to something more, but in all honestly they couldnt care less. they were just glad to finally have someone - they had long ago given up on trying to date any humans, they all died in the end.. it was too painful.
it gets to the point in their relationship where they know every thing there is to know about the other. vlad knows exactly what things tend to trigger danny’s panic attacks, and he also knows that the best thing for him is a warm mug of hot chocolate and some old movies on the couch. danny knows that when vlad gets too stressed out or angry all he really needs is some of his favorite tea and perhaps a book to read. maybe even a back rub.
they still use their ghost powers - by now they have both mastered them - but not as often as they once did or for the same reasons they once did either. now they only rlly use them out of habit to make things easier. danny can barely recall ever being the hero that was danny phantom, but his jumpsuit serves as a permanent reminder of what he once was - although hes began to forget where the design even came from.
by now their first life is a bit of blur to them - they cant seem recall why they were ever enemies in the first place. vlad likes to tease danny about how hes dating a man much older than himself - to which danny replies that hes dated people hundreds of years younger than him, and in comparrison to that, vlad and him were practically twins. they laugh a lot about how much of a “crazed-up fruit loop” vlad use to be and vlad admits he doesnt even remember why he was so infatuated with maddy back then anyways, it all seems like a weird dream to them.
eventually it gets to the point where danny cant remember ever /not/ being vlad. it seemed too distant, too weird. he cant imagine how he managed to survive all those years without him. he still has days where the past consumes him and hes left feeling empty, but he has vlad to help him through that.
he vaguely remembers a promise he made to someone once, a long time ago, to never forget them - but he cant really recall to who or in what life.. everything seemed mixed together now a days.
the thought use to upset him, but hes gotten over it. he may be immortal and be stuck living new lives for the rest of eternity - but at least he doesnt have to do it alone.
