Oh gosh okay I know this is long but honestly this is the best au idea I have ever come up with and I have had some good ones before, so please at least consider taking this journey, it’s based entirely on the original show just BIGGER and I think it would have been really cool if this what the show was actually about but maybe only if the show had been longer and possibly aimed to an older audience, also a lot of inspiration for this came from a variety of different fanfics and fanon
Like what if after getting caught up in the portal Danny’s powers didn’t manifest straight away, what if he spent the first season or so fighting ghosts as a human with his parents simply because he felt responsible for opening the portal in the first place
And then maybe throughout the series little things would happen like strange things he can’t explain and at first you’re like ‘what?’ but then on the season finale he would transform for the first time and you’d be like ‘ALL THOSE OTHER THINGS MAKE SENSE NOW’
And then the second series would be about him adjusting to having powers and trying to hide them from ghosts and humans but then it turns out that neither the humans nor ghosts recognise his ghost half and he starts to use that to his advantage to learn things about ghosts so he can fight them easier by discovering their weaknesses
But he ends up starting to relate to the ghosts and he stops seeing them as ghosts and starts seeing them as people and he has this whole mental breakdown over it but he’s also super relieved because if the ghosts aren’t really monsters then he isn’t either and there’s all this emotional confusion taking place
And then just to kick Danny in the teeth, after this realisation hits the whole Dark Dan story plot takes place (altered to fit this universe though) and he starts doubting himself again even worse than before (this would probably happen late season two)
Also Vlad would fuck things up as always because during the first series he’s just that creepy guy who wants to bang Danny’s mum and has the occasional dramatic *TOTALLY HIDING SOMETHING* moments but you don’t know WHAT, also you don’t see Plasmius at all during the first series, he’s just a shady name that Danny hears about, mostly from Skulker but sometimes other ghosts mention him too and they’re all scared of him so you start to wonder who this guy is
Until the second season where Vlad discovers Danny’s secret and pulls the whole ‘we’re the same!! I relate to you!’ shtick to get Danny on his side and all that bullshit, but of course everything goes pear-shaped when Danny realised he’s ‘The’ Plasmius he’s been hearing about who was the mastermind behind a lot of the evil shit that went down in season one so he’s all ‘no fuck you you’re evil’ and then of course shit hits the fan and Plasmius becomes the main antagonist
Also Plasmius would be super scary and evil in this show, like he wouldn’t have the silly swears or anything he’d be downright TERRIFYING most of the time and the most manipulative little shit to the extreme and he just starts making things really hard for Danny’s human half AND ghost half
Maddie and Jack would be more involved in the plot during season one since Danny hunts with them and they’re teaching him how to hunt properly and we learn about what ghosts are and how they work during this period of the show, but during season two Danny would start to distance himself from them as he takes on things himself and starts becoming more independent and paranoid about them figuring out his secret
Sam and Tucker would actually have less to do in the first season since it would be based more around Danny and his parents but they’d still make appearances when Danny hangs around with them during school and stuff and he’d still share everything with them and they’d be the first ones to notice when Danny’s powers start kicking in and they’d be the first ones the make the connection between them and the accident since they (as is canon) were there when it happened
They would have bigger roles in season two as they’d have more to do with Danny’s ghostly side of business, and since Danny starts distancing himself from his parents he stops going on regular hunts and instead focuses on bigger and more dangerous threats, so this season would have more of the big baddies than just ghosts like the Box Ghost and Skulker
Also after Sam’s whole stint with Undergrowth afterwards (maybe a few episodes later) it would be revealed that some of his power had clung to her and had started manifesting (that had always been an ‘after series’ headcanon of mine) so she has a small amount of control over plants that grows as the show progresses (it would also have complications that would be covered in various episodes)
Oh oh oh I nearly forgot Jazz, okay so Jazz would be super worried about Danny’s growing obsession with ghost hunting during season one, and she’s also still battling her own internal conflict over ghosts actually existing, but mostly she tries to help Danny overcome his sense of responsibility over the ghost portal incident, with varying result depending on what’s been happening throughout the show, also she spends some of her time halfway through season one studying ghosts themselves and taking notes on their behaviour as a personal study project, so at some point she becomes like their database of ghostly info when it comes to the behaviour and personalities of ghosts, (this spans way into season two and becomes like her main role on the show) she also spends a lot of time with Tucker since he helps her file and sort the information digitally, also I’ve never been a big TuckerxJazz shipper but the way I’ve managed to plot this au out it looks like a potential possibility so yeah that may as well become a thing in later seasons, which would involve an amusing awkward period between the bro the sis and the best bud for a couple of episode until it eased into the plot and becomes a stable part of the show
Also Vlad never showed much interest in Jazz in the original show so I thought it would be interesting if I could change that, maybe Vlad is impressed by her intelligence and decides to pursue her as well as Danny (as a daughter!! not as anything else!! ugh)
Also yeah if any of you had read my story idea about Danny and Dash’s backstory I would probably weasel some of that in here too, because it’s angst-tastic and would fit in well
Okay so that’s all season one and two stuff, season three would be a lot different, season three would be the one where Danny has become confident in who he is and what he can do, he has his little group of ‘Ghost Getters!’ (“That is NOT our name Jazz god damn it”) and everything has become pretty stable, Danny can handle himself and any enemy that comes along, his ghost half is well respected among ghosts, he’s had his rough spots with Plasmius but always comes out on top, he’s been fixing up his relationship with his parents (even if they still don’t know his secret) but this is when the big BIG guns come out
The Pariah Dark plot, except in this universe it will be so much bigger and it’ll even get it’s own full arc, there’ll be ghost armies, attacks, failures, backup plans, emergency retreats, unexpected allies and all the good stuff that comes with a fucking ghost war with a small human town stuck in the middle of it
And Danny would be the one to lead everyone, as his ghost half leads armies and plans attacks and his human half would be keeping the humans safe and organised so when the wars and fighting are over (the final battle would be awesome because it would literally be EVERYONE fighting Pariah’s army of much stronger people than those skeletons from the show) both halves of Danny would be hailed heroes, which is fortunate for him because this is when the big reveal would happen, unintentionally, and all confused hell would break loose
Everyone would be divided because on the one hand he’s a war hero who saved pretty much everyone human and ghost alike, but he’s also an abomination to everyone human and ghost alike, the second half of season three would be spent as Danny and the Ghost Getters go into hiding from everyone, sheltered by human and ghost allies as they go and chased by human and ghost enemies, things would get really intense
Agh that’s all I can think of right now but honestly this is how I wish the show had gone, it had so much more potential than what they did with it!!
//This is Wesley’s father, right? =’P
if he’s wesley’s father then i’m shipping him with vlad for more added ghost drama

Anonymous asked: do numbers 6,8, and 9 :))
Aw, two messages? I’m so happy ^.^
9: My favourite thing to draw varies from day to day, but most of the time I really like drawing heads. Danny’s head today, as you can see.
Anonymous asked: i ask you to do 3, 10 and 11! Oh and can you draw a sloth for me please?
Alright! I’ll start with 10: My least favorite thing to draw is probably… Backgrounds. I can never get the motivation to finish them :(
(For the record i dont sit around all day with eyes and mouth wide open. But if I don’t draw them like that you get this:
which I think you’ll all agree looks like a monster)
3: I post almost all of my drawings, especially Phandom related, here. But my latest unposted, one of a kind exclusive never seen before doodle is this Jade:
And here is your sloth:
Have a nice day!
I vote for Wes Kevin McGreggor as his name. and I love him and you guys for creating him
what if we took the kid from this post …
AND GAVE HIM THE BACKGROUND/PERSONALITY OF THIS POST
AND MAYBE WE CALL HIM GREG OR SOMETHING.
ehehehe oh dear i love this idea
does he have a phanon name yet?
I’ve heard a bunch of different names but my favorite is Wes. Can he please be Wes?
If we call him Wes, can we do that thing I said about Wes?
Oh oh oh and noone belives him cause “Hey Wes, you kinda look like Phantom too! Green eyes and all… Are you sure you’re not just covering up?’ and hes all like ‘no NO THIS IS NOT A JOKE’
I accidentally wrote a lot of things about the background character who I’m just going to call Wes. And I feel weird cause I’ve never done that before and just I want to hug him. He’s so normal but not and I want to smooch his face…SO PHANDOM: would you like to read the lame stuff I wrote up for him?
