*streeeeetch, yaaaaaawn* Oh, wow, that was quite a cat nap! I think I dreamed about being some mundane human going to college, earning a degree, and finding work that had little to do with that degree. Hmmm….

Anyway, as of April 3 of this year, Danny Phantom, the show, has been adored, analyzed, and discussed for 10+ years, and still has a pretty solid fanbase that expresses its passion through drawing, writing, music, videos, and other outlets. As for fanfiction, we at Phantomsues know that a lot of love goes into the writing – perhaps not always a lot of work – but behind every story is a person who enjoys (or at least had enjoyed at one point) the show, and that’s pretty awesome.

While this blog mostly focuses on the less than stellar fanworks in an attempt to provide humor and an effort to better the fandom’s literacy as a whole, there really are quite a few great DP fanfics in the mix, and I have not forgotten my promise from my last entry to showcase a few of them.

Please keep in mind that this is by no means a complete or even absolute list, stemming mostly from my own opinions on what makes writing ‘good’, and my selection sample is probably biased by my own preferences in subject matter. I also won’t link to stories I haven’t fully read, not because they aren’t good, but because I can’t make a fair assessment on them. These are examples that stuck out for me (and stuck with me) for having well written characters – canon and OC alike – intriguing or meaningful plots and themes, and being creative over cliché. I encourage former, current, or future sporkers to add their own suggestions to this, and, of course, anyone in the comments.

(I tried to tag trigger and mature theme warnings as best I could, I may have missed some things, but given the nature of the show and how fans tend to explore it, please be aware that there can be a lot of distressing scenes for those sensitive to certain materials. I also tried not to spoil plot elements in my notes, but there's always that chance, so be aware of that as well.)

Hey. Just making it official now that I am retiring from Phantomsues. I'm not coming back. I don't know about HermyStar. She might, but she also might not. We apologize for getting your hopes up only to be bad owners.

Make sure you read the post below this!

One night Danny actually had time to sleep but at 4:00 A.M his ghost sense went off and he had to get up.
There is something very wrong with this sentence. You mean that it flows like a sticky worm on sandpaper. Maybe. yo.

"Ugh, can't these ghosts give me and peace or time to sleep." Isn't that your job, you selfish boy, you! yo.

Then he got out of bed and changed into his sexy yo. Danny Phantom costume, went intangible and flew through the wall to go see what ghost it was.

To his surprise it wasn't any ghost he's ever seen before, it had long blue hair that was almost to it's legs why is she an it? Well, Sues are inhuman beasts...yo. and had blue/green Just say blue-green. Please. For me. yo.eyes, it was also female and was wearing a black tank top with a star in the middle of it that showed her belly and jeans that had wholes whole what? Pizzas? Pies? in them. She also had black boots on with purple straps on them.

Danny said "Who are you and what are you doing here.?" WELCOME TO FULL LIFE CONSEQUENCES! yo.

The ghost said " Oh sorry, I forgot to introduce myself, first of all I will be your worst nightmare but I won't fight you because you won't get to see me or even remember me after this is over with oh and my name is Jian, oh and I know that you like that goth girl, oh what is her name, oh well lets' forget about that now." Oh Wheatley how do I describe how bad this is. Hell came in the form of a ridiculous looking girl. And killed us. In Hell. yo.

Then after Jian introduced herself she used one of her special ghost powers on Danny, it was this purple mist that came out of her hand and Danny tried to get out of the way but missed and as it hit him he said "Ugh that hurt and I don't like like that girl, she's just my best friend." Is that really what you're worried about?  yo. How about your life?

Jian said "Oh no I know better, I've seen you around her and you don't act the same around any other person." I thought she was new..? She's actually a crazed fangirl from the real world. RUN, DANNEH! yo.

Before Danny had time to reply she got out this blue ball that kind of looked like frozen snow but it wasn't You mean a snowball? and she used some of her water powers and sparyed So she's fighting with it? Sparring? Get it? yo. it with water and it turned into some kind of mist. Water + Ice = Mist? Me = WTF. yo.

She then had control of the mist Did she not have control of it before? and threw it over Danny's head yo. and he then passed out. *Headdesk*

Then Jian picked up Danny and took him home, she new where he lived because she has the power to get into peoples heads and find out personal information about them. Stalker! yo. Don't you mean Skulker?

Then Jian thought " I'm glad I did this to him, he will soon find out something about one of his best friends, I know I am doing a good thing for him and I'm not the type of ghost to do that, but not all ghosts are evil even if he thinks so." Hello, Mojo-Jojo, how are you today? yo.

Then she finally got to his house and fazed disturbed through the wall to where his bedroom How do you know where his bedroom is?  yo. Magic. was and put him in his bed and thought, "He won't remember anything that happened when he wakes up, now I better leave before his ghost sense wakes him up and he sees me."

Then Jian fazed disturbed through the wall of his room and went through the ghost portal back to where she lived.


The next morning Danny's alarm went off and he woke up. He wondered how he got in his bed because he vaguely remembered fighting a ghost last night but he just put it off as a dream. "Oh, just a dream. I mean, why would fight ghosts? What a laugh." yo.

Then he got up and went to his closet to find something to wear today, he thought he would try something a little different today than what he usually wore. "Imma go nekid today :D " Hermy: No, why don't you try an outfit from this music video? You know, Hurricane? yo.

He picked out a top that looked like his other one but it was black with a blue oval in the middle of it and blue trimming on the neck hole and the sleeves. I no lik style. YO!

Then he picked out his normal baggy blue jeans that he normally wore They aren't normally baggy...and then he decided to try different shoes to annoy all the fans yo. , they were still tennis shoes but they were blue with purple on them.

After he was done getting dressed he went to the bathroom and brushed his teeth and used the toilet then he went down stairs and grabbed a piece od toast even though he doesn't like it and then grabbed his back pack and went out the door before his parents or his sister saw that he was leaving for school. Why do we need to know all this?  yo. Dude, TMI.

Then he decided to fly to school that day so he changed into Danny Phantom and flew to school. Department of Redundancy Department

He finally got to where he was and was glad there wasn't any ghosts to make him late for class today, then he ran into the school and met up with Sam and Tucker. We already know how his day goes, stop with the tiny details. yo.

He said " Hi Sam and Tucker." Yo, we dun need dose quotations, yo. yo.

They said, " Hi Danny and then Tucker said "wow I can't believe your actually on time today, did u My wrath toward the use of this letter cannot properly be described.  yo. catch all the ghosts last night or wasn't there any?" Or was not there any? Kill me. Kill me now. yo. *Shot by Joshua*

He said " Well actually I remember fighting one ghost but I can't remember anything about it, which is really odd, I woke up this morning and was in bed and thought it was a dream but it seemed more real than that but I just can't remember it that much so I guess I will just forget about it for now. RUN ON SENTENCES!  Y U MARATHON? YO.

Sam said " It's ok Danny, I'm sure it was nothing and then she thought "well I must have been something but I just don't know what." Just what are you? yo. Something, that's for sure...

Then Danny said "What did you say after you said you were sure it was nothing, who said what? yo. I could've sworn you said something like you thought it had to be something but you don't knwo You are impressive. what?"

Sam just gave Danny a funny look O.o Derp. yo. and said " Danny I didn't say that I thought it.

Danny just looked at her and said "What, no you couldn't have thought it because I heard that perfectly clear, you had to of said that, Tucker didn't you hear her say that?" Oh Wheatley why. My brain melted. yo.

Tucker said "Danny calm down and no I didn't hear her say that."

Danny said "Ok thne guys you must be pulling a prank on me or soemthing." Looks like spell check committed sue-icide.

Sam said "No Danny were not pulling a prank on you, now lets get to class before were late and Mr. Lancer gives us detention." And the grammar checker was never alive. yo.

Danny said " Ok maybe I am just imagining it."

Then they all went to class and actually got there on time. THE END. yo.

Hey, we'll give you a cyber cookie if you can guess what games we've been playing! Guess it, yo. YOSH!
