Here’s a fun little scenario that would be part of a larger story I don’t have the time/energy to write.
Something something, the ghosts need to work together with the humans to stop a larger threat. They meet at Fentonworks to form a plan of attack with the humans’ most knowledgeable about ghosts. It is not Jack and Maddie Fenton. However, Danny Fenton and co do not feel like disclosing the fact that they are Amity’s foremost ghost experts. So the ghosts find themselves in an awkward position of having to pretend to be seeking council from the adult Fentons while watching Danny pretend to hide in his mother’s side in fear. But though his posture is scared and submissive, his eyes are glowing with promise of a violent second death if they don’t play along. Cue shenanigans. Fun points of interest include:
- Danny and the ghosts’ frustration and disbelief as the Fentons or even Valerie get ghost stuff so completely wrong and Danny is literally biting his hand to stop himself from correcting them because he’s not supposed to know anything about ghosts. They look at him with weary annoyance, asking why he is making them submit to this and he just stares back equally annoyed and exhausted.
- The ghosts and Team Phantom need to do their planning in secret so they steal snatches of time here and there with hilarious results. Danny quickly phasing him and Technus into the bathroom for a quick huddle only to be interrupted by Jack trying to get in or quickly miming ideas and plans when people’s heads are turned then pretending to play on his phone when they look his way (his phone is upside down, no one comments. Fenton is just weird like that). They barely get any time to plan without interruption.
- It gets to the point where nothing is getting done and Danny is forced to kind of intercede but in a casual manner. Making pointed comments to have people piece things together themselves, tripping over important inventions to bring them to people’s attention just... pretending to accidentally acquire knowledge and delicately (and sometimes forcefully) leading them to the correct conclusions.
- I bet there would be some interesting conversations btw the ghosts and Danny about why he does hide. Why does he hide his strength and knowledge? They know by now that Danny is protective of hell of his secret identity but ghosts simply cannot understand why one of the strongest warriors hides behind the façade of weakness. Sometimes Danny himself wants to give up the charade bc the whole thing is too damn confusing and exhausting.
- Danny is not used to his worlds colliding in such an ongoing, intimate setting (lets say both ghosts and humans are essentially trapped together) so his personality is constantly flipping btw Fenton and Phantom’s trying to keep up. Dash is confused watching Fenton growl at ghosts while the ghosts are wondering why such a powerful halfa lets the other humans push him around. It makes both human and ghosts realize they don’t much at all about Danny Fenton.
- A lot of ghosts’ knowledge of humans comes from Danny, Sam and Tucker who are, obviously, outliers. In order to play nice with the ghost kid, they try to engage with some humans and are so far from the mark. (For example just kind of assuming all human kids engage in reckless, world changing activities).
- Also the ghosts know Danny and generally have a lot of respect for his power and sense of duty to his haunt. They treat other humans the same, as annoying interchangeable non-entities almost but for some reason, Danny Fenton is given a weird amount of respect being referred to by name and, when he speaks, all the other ghosts stop and listen. Normal people have no idea what to make of this.
- Again, I simply cannot get over the image of Danny doing his best to cower with his back to the humans but while facing the ghosts his face is a snarling, threatening mess. Both sides treat him as they normally do and find themselves coming up short. The humans wonder why the ghosts look at skinny, useless Fenton like he’s important. The ghosts wonder how the humans look at him and don’t see something dangerous.

So here’s a fun thing. We like it when the universe aligns in fitting ways and coincidences appear where things that should not be connected, suddenly are very much connected. Supernatural being the most meta thing to ever meta is just an accepted fact in this fandom.
Take Destiel shippers for example. We have our haters. Haters decide they wanna give us a mean nickname. The term “Destiheller” gets thrown around. Destiel shippers think this is clearly a very awesome nickname because well, our ship met in Hell! It’s so fitting!
“Destiheller” over time gets shortened to “Heller” as things do. Destiel shippers proudly call themselves “Hellers” and start using the word in lots of different ways. Suddenly you’ve got “Heller meet ups”, “Heller Zooms”, “Heller News” and most hilariously of all “Hellerism” to describe our way of life.
I thought this was amusing and decided to look it up - mostly to see what Urban Dictionary had to say about it (Urban Dictionary refers to it as a disease you get when you believe a gay angel and an angry hunter will become canon - you are a clown (affectionate))
But dear friends, Hellerism has far older roots, and ironically enough, those roots are still extremely extremely apt.
Here is a book from the late 19th century on Hellerism. Please take a good look at that cover illustration.
That’s right. Hellerism refers to the Supernatural arts of communing via telepathy and with the spirits and in some cases angels. I’m dying.
The following book was also dug up (I love how these books are blue and green lmao)
In general, Hellerism is mysticism, the arts of conjuring, talking to spirits and angels, and dealing with the Supernatural.
Also @/assrtdpzlepcs on Twitter dug up this hilarious article on HELLERISM EXPOSED
Where the word “Hellers” is used to describe us as “tricksters and amusement caterers”.
I just find this all so funny and apt and oddly satisfying and thought Tumblr might also appreciate this.
I’m also outraged at Supernatural for not even once referring to HELLERS in the show since it is CLEARLY something Sam Winchester is aware of!!!
