WHEN I WAS SEVEN YEARS OLD, my mom would take me to the Ops Center and teach me about the universe. Being a speck in an infinite cosmos is humbling. It drew me back night after night— propping my window open, even in the cold, so I could watch those balls of light spin eons away. For Jazz’s fifteenth birthday, our family went to Florida and, standing on the white sand beaches of Miami facing the ocean for the first time in my life, I had felt just as insignificant. The Atlantic Ocean had smelled like salt, sunscreen, and happy people.
One of my favorite things in the world is when you mention Danny Phantom in real life to a person not in the Phandom and every single time a person’s face lights up. Every. Single. Time. I’ve literally causally brought the show up and a group of people stopped talking, perked up, smiled, and started talking about the show in excited little comments with me. It’s so awesome.
Plus these comments:
“I remember that show! It was so good!”
“I had a crush on Danny when I was a kid.”
“Man, that was my show!”
“Oh! I remember that! That was my childhood!”
“They don’t make shows like that anymore.”
“One of many cartoons canceled before its time.”
I just…. Danny Phantom caused a big reaction even in non major phans years later. It still makes people smile, even if casually mentioned. I’m not ashamed to say I like the show because of reactions like these. I wanted to point this out because it made me happy and wanted to share with others.
Danny Phantom brings nostalgia, and honestly, it makes me very happy.
That gradual lift in the score as Christine sings “God give me courage to show you, you are not alone” before it reaches the climax upon their first kiss, because it’s such a pivotal moment in not only the story, but in his life… good shit right there.
Am I the only one who thinks that Jazz does some of Danny’s homework to help him out since he’s always ghost fighting and she’s always done with hers anyways?
Like he comes home after a ghost fight, got yelled at for missing curfew, then comes to his room to find completed homework. And then even though he immediately collapses on the bed to sleep, he makes a mental note to thank Jazz.
This is just some headcanon where robbers never tried to steal stuff in the Fenton Works because of some ghost scaring the shit out of everyone in it(= Danny).During one night,some buglar stole a mini replica of Apollo 11 and Danny wasn’t happy AT ALL!
The buglar got some “scary eyes”with intangibility as a sign of Danny’s anger. Since this,no robbers never came back and the mini replica is still at Danny’s room
