I like to think a lot of shit that Danny, Tucker and Sam attribute to Vlad’s powers is really just aspects of how he is anyway
“Whoa he knew I was coming down the hallway and I wasn’t even walking, maybe he’s got weird superhearing” nope when you’re constantly being targeted by ghosts, government agents and disgruntled employees of the corporations you ran out of business you stay ready
“Dude he’s standing out in the snow in nothing but a tank top and PJs! Guess ghosts are immune to cold” nah he’s from wisconsin
“Damn he can really toss them back, ghosts must not have a problem with processing alcohol” he’s just russian my guy
So one of the things I imagine happening after Danny got his ghost powers is that he’s much more light on his feet, and so his family hardly ever hears him when he comes up or down the stairs, and often times scares his mom or dad or Jazz when they don’t realize he’s there until he talks because he’s behind them, and they sometimes tell him he’s like a ghost in the house and its funny because of how true it is even tho they don’t know it, and yea
Danny taking a job in construction after high school to help repair all the property he constantly damages. has weird hours and pays well. Danny’s torn between guilt that he’s making work for himself and relief that he can at the very least make up for it.
caught in a cycle of accidentally breaking streets he just fixed.
tiny Danny, surprising his coworkers with how strong he is. Danny slowly getting more visibly muscular and having a valid excuse for it. still pretending to be clumsy so his coworkers don’t question his injuries. people joking that he’s more of a hazard than the ghosts are.
Danny steadily getting really good at crafts and using his growing knowledge of construction and architecture as an advantage in ghost fighting. Danny eventually fighting an architect ghost, that brings buildings to life. Danny just sighing in the wake of the ordeal cause he knows he has to fix all this.
Danny sometimes being strait up lazy and sticking around to use his powers to fix things up after fights. because now that he knows what he’s doing, it’s so much easier than just leaving everything a disaster and having to fix things as a human later. but he can never get as much done as he wants cause ghost hunters. the rest of amity is like ‘hey let him work.’
working on an engineering degree cause it can contribute to his trade and get him in the door of some space program. even if he doesn’t get to space, he can help make rocket ships and help other people get to space (low-key might sneak onto a space shuttle when no one’s looking)
Danny pursuing his dreams in a different way and achieving some amount of satisfaction in doing it. his parents are really proud of him, because even if it isn’t ghosts, he’s still making a difference and his prospects seem better.
Danny still being 100% tired
just construction worker Danny!
“Danny pursuing his dreams in a different way” ur killing me dude
