one of my favorite things about the trans!danny hc is that, assuming we’re going by canon here, jack is suPER supportive
like almost every episode we hear jack referring to danny as “danny boy”
like,, think about this for a second
danny coming out to his parents, fidgeting nervously with the hem of his too-big t-shirt
maddie being quiet at first, taking it in, thinking about how she would have to take her son shopping for new clothes immediately.. and a binder. he would need a proper binder.
she gets so lost in calculating all the things she would have to do to help her son feel comfortable she doesnt realize how quiet shes being - but danny does
he starts panicing. his fears had come true - they didnt accept him. of course they wouldnt.. he begins backing up when all of sudden jack’s face turns into a huge grin.
he claps a hand on his sons shoulder, beaming. “oh danny boy!” he proclaims, “why didnt you tell us sooner???”
danny blanches. he hadnt expected his dad to be so accepting. this snaps maddy out of her trance, and she starts talking at lightning speed, how they would have to buy him some new, appropriate, clothes and the seriousness of proper binding.
danny cant believe it.. they? they’re ok with this? he starts to cry - from relieve and from happiness and also from a bit of guilt he didnt tell them sooner - that would have made things a lot easier
from then on jack and maddy try their best to be as supportive as they can be. maddy always cooing about her precious baby boy and jack going on and on about how they need to have more father-son bonding time. making sure hes always comfortable and correcting anyone who ever dares misgender their baby boy. danny couldnt have been happier.
even so, he stills gets dsyphoria sometimes and it really brings him down - and so jack does the only thing he could think
he starts calling him danny boy.
maybe a little reminder is all he needs… besides, he always wanted a son anyways
