Danny Phantom au where no one knows he’s a halfa and because he can empathize with both sides of ghosts and humans, he just can’t resist helping them both out
...except, he keeps doing it with the reverse identity, so the humans trust Phantom, the ghost who protects them from other ghosts, and the ghosts like Danny, the son of the ghost hunters who keeps helping them escape before his parents hurt them

Decided to mix Fatal Frame and Danny Phantom lol.
Danny finds the Camera Obscura in a box of old things, in his parents attic from their college days. (Was hoping to find blackmail to use against Vlad.) There were documents reporting on its strange power. Curiosity peaked, he decides to take it to his friends to figure out more about it.
Sam: Wow! This looks like a camera my grandma has.
Tuck: So what's the big deal about an old camera?
Danny: My parents had it with their college stuff. Box was full of research on it, but most were written in Japanese.. I think?
Sam: (Playing around with the camera) Oh, it still has film!
Tuck: Does it even work?
Danny: Not sure... I just know it use to be used on ghosts. Or at least thats what I read. Something about capturing them.
Tuck: When did you learn Japanese? Jealous, teach me.
Danny: What? No Tuck, I read what my parents had translated. The few they did.. that I could read. When they said they didn't slept at all at college, I'm beginning to think it was true.
Sam: Why don't we try it out, then? We do have a ghost here~
Danny: *squints his eyes* I don't know if that's a good idea. It was meant to capture ghosts.
Sam: Yea, duh, that's what cameras do. They capture a picture. Now go stand-float over there!
Tuck: What's the worse it can do? Its so old, it probably won't work at all.
Danny: (Feeling a sense of deja vu but gives in with a sigh, floating in front of the park.)
Sam: Little to the left!
Tuck: Wait! There! That'll make a cool photo! (Using his camera too. Planning on selling pictures or posters)
Danny: Shifted as told, feeling queasy as Sam aims the camera at him) A-are you sure about this, Sam?
Sam: Yep. (emphasis on the "p" sound) Now hold still!
Tuck: -Say cheese! (Phone over his face.)
Danny: ARRGGGGHHHH! (Screams at the flash of light)
Tuck/Sam: DANNY?! (Lowering their cameras, worried as they see danny isn't anywhere)
Tuck: Where-where did he- Did-did we
Sam: (pursing her lips in worry, camera still in her hand)
Danny: (appearing above them, body fizzing like static) I'm right here.
Sam: Danny! You o-
Danny: I'm fine! (hurrying to point the camera away from him) J-just don't point that THING at me.
Tuck: D-Dude! Your body's.. all.. all static! You sure, you're ok?
Sam: All we saw was flash of light and you scream-... (shaking the image of the past from her mind)
Danny: (rubbing back of his neck as his skin settles) Yeah, Yeah. It felt unpleasant, but no where near um.. that. More like uh.. you know when someone scratches their nails on a chalkboard?
Tuck: So, this- (points at Danny) is like.. a ghost equivalent to goosebumps?
Danny: Uh? I guess? I don't know. It felt, weird..
Sam: Weird is normal for us, Danny. You have to be more specific than that.
Danny: Ugh ok like, uh a bunch of needles poking me all at once. Or like a million of tiny sharp teeth chomping into my skin.
Tuck: Or like when your foot is going numb?
Danny: Yeah! Like that, except all over without actually going numb.
Sam: Ok, now that we know it does in fact do something to ghost... What are we going to do with it?
Danny: I'm not sure...
Just thought it be a fun idea to mix them. LOL wasn't sure what to have them say, but hopefully its close enough. -w-'b I was trying hard to actually color this one. I still don't know if I colored it too much or should of left it as flats.
Also another hc of mine. Danny's eyes, even when human, doesn't have eye shines but lightly glow instead. Like the life been drained from them.

Headcanon that due to his halfa status, Danny is more sensitive to ghostly things and there’s a lot more ghostly activity happening than previously thought
It looks like he’s just listening to static on the radio but it’s actually soothing music played by a band hoping against hope that someone’s still listening
He stops to look at some gorgeous flowers he’s never seen before but it just looks like patches of dirt
When he goes down to the abandoned train tracks, they still shake like they’re in use
In the playground, there’s delighted laughter of children long forgotten
Sometimes, in the corner of his eye, if he doesn’t turn his head to quickly, he swears he can see apparitions that don’t want to move on but having nothing left to cling to
Spirits of extinct animals from when water used to cover that area swim past him
And above him twinkle stars that blinked out of existence before there was even life on earth

the other side of me
[image description: gif of the fenton ghost portal, pulsing with ectoplasmic green energy. the body of danny fenton is face down on the floor, his bottom half still in the portal; a puddle of blood seeps into the cracks beneath him. danny phantom floats above him, slightly transparent and head tilted back to the camera. his eyes glow the same neon green as the portal.

Ectober Day 20: Full Moon
That moment you try to do something cute and fun but somehow end up hurting the boi instead.
Maddie held the newest FentonWorks ectobazooka up on her shoulder, a confident smile on her face as her aim held true. Th bright green blush of energy shot straight through Phantom’s chest, blasting a hole through the despicable ghost so large you you seen the moon straight through it from her angle. Phantom froze where he was, barely moving to glance between the hole and her, the most horrified and devastated look she had ever seen on a ghost overcoming his features. His glow flickered and dimmed before vanishing altogether as the ghost boy plummeted from the sky, wings throughly clipped. It shouldn’t have killed him, she had seen ghosts survive far worse injuries, but Phantom hadn’t made any sort of noice from where he had landed amounts the brush. It would be a shame if she had destroyed him, a great scientific loss. His expression, however, had seared itself into her mind, along with the view of the full moon straight through his chest.
When Maddie reached the area Phantom had fallen, it wasn’t Phantom she found there in the bushes with a hole blasted through his chest.

Accidental Baby Acquisition
Danny has his portal accident a lot earlier than in the show, 10 years early to be exact. Jack and Maddie had been in the kitchen going over some blueprints and studying some ectoplasm samples they had stored in their fridge. Jazz was out of the house at a friend's house, she made sure her parents remembered. She put it on the houses multiple calenders, in her parents phones, a note on the fridge, and even announced on her way out the door to catch the bus to school that morning. Needless to say the two forgot anyways and thought Jazz was watching Danny in the living room as they tinkered away in the kitchen.
Danny was being a kid, a young kid who was fascinated by his parents work and who just wanted to look at the cool toys they made downstairs in the basement. He was very good at going up and down the stairs by himself, and remembered to put on what his mommy called a HAS-MAP suit....or something like that. His was white and black! Like an astronauts! He couldn't reach his goggles though but he figured it would be fine, he was just looking and nothing was on! And mommy and daddy only wore the goggles when something was glowing.
He hadn't been down there a lot because Jazzy didn't like him down there. She said it was dangerous but mommy and daddy are always down there and they don't say it's dangerous so maybe it's not that bad? He had a fun time looking around! He made sure not to touch anything like a good boy but then he saw the giant circle thing in the back. It looked like the bottom of a rocket ship! Mommy and daddy were building a rocket ship! He excitedly ran towards it but tripped over a big wire, it was close to what daddy called a tension cord! He didn't mean to knock it out he didn't it was unplugged so he plugged it back in carefully because he didn't want his parents to be mad. Then he walked inside the giant metal circle.
He tripped again into the wall of the big circle, he hit a loose piece, he felt bad when it fell off and decided he should get out and go apologize, but then he heard a humming. It got louder and then. Pain.
Jack and Maddie heard the scream. It was. It was awful. Something they would remember forever. They ran as fast as they could to the lab calling out for Jazz and Danny. When they got down they were shocked to see their portal to the Ghost Zone active, and more so to see a small ghost getting up from the floor to look at them. It was mimicking crying. They weren’t idiots. Maddie drew one of her guns with Jack doing the same, she knew she was crying, she had heard her baby. This ghost had to have taken him and was taunting them.
"Where's my baby!?"
"Mommy. Mommy, I hurt." The ghoul cried and Maddie saw white. How dare this thing mimick her child. How dare it try to take advantage of them. She didn't know what happened but she could guess from the way her finger felt cramped and the way her husband had shouted.
She had shot the ghost. It was falling back into the portal. It was getting away. They both scrambled to grab something, anything that would catch it so they could question torture it in on Danny's whereabouts. They were unsuccessful and all they could do was watch the little thing fall further into the portal before it got to far it let out this piercing, in human wail and next thing they knew, both Jack and Maddie awoke on the floor of their lab. It was a wreck, their inventions were thrown all around, some broken, some thankfully intact, but the most devastating realization was to see how damaged the portal was. She screamed.
Jazz was brought home by her friend's mom but when the mom walked her to the door and they heard screaming and crashes, her friend's mom told her to go wait in the car and tell her older daughter to call 911. Jazz was smart. She knew something was wrong, and all she wanted to do was run in there and make sure her baby brother was okay but she listened to Mrs. Richmond anyways. That was the day Danny Fenton went missing. It would be soon that Jazz would go to live with her Aunt Alicia. Maddie and Jack were deemed unfit to take care of her. But that was fine, she would just get in the way of their research. They never reached out.
Danny, lost in the Zone and hurting only wanted to be safe and he just wanted his family. The Zone no longer had a portal to send the little Twilight child out of back to his family but it did the best it could. Danny landed on a chunk of a ghost town, no ghosts were there, it seemed to truly be abandoned.
Flynn Walker went missing when he was 8, that was 10 years ago. His mama had told him not to go messing around the town's local ghost story ridden abandoned train cart out in the woods. Boy sis she tell him many times, and he remembered his dad saying, "Alicia, he's a boy, boys tend to wander and seek adventure." His ma and dad fought a lot, but he liked the idea of adventure. He remembered complaining about wanting to go see the train because all his friends had, and he remembered his dad telling him to go and that he would cover for him if his mom asked. That would be the last time he saw his dad or mom.
The memory was fuzzy but he did remember exploring the train carts and being bored until he got to the last one. It just felt off. It was cold. It was hot. He felt like there were people all around. Then he heard the trains horn...which was very impossible since there were only carts from the train. Not the front. Not the back. Not even the dining cart. It was a couple of the seating ones. But it was when he heard that horn when a flash of green blinded him and he ended up in the Ghost Zone.
He had been trying for years to get back to his mama, but so far, nothing. So he did what his mama taught him, and he survived. He was doing a good job if he did say so himself, he even made some alliances with some ghosts. He knew what to expect in the zone. What he didn't expect was finding a baby ghost hurt on his property. And well, he wasn't going to leave the little thing to die...again. Nor was he going to risk Walker and his men finding the little thing or any other ghoul.
That was the day Flynn Walker accidentally acquired a baby. A ghost baby. A ghost baby who for some odd fucking reason turned human sometimes.
This is another idea that's been floating in my head and I had to put it down somewhere so why not here? I definitely want to write this too! This will have ghost baby Danny being parented by his missing cousin and he will meet his rouge gallery as a baby! And spoiler alert they become attached. Also baby Danny is powerful and they all are kind of in awe at how powerful this tiny baby ghost human is. Jazz lives with her Auntie and gets to be a kid again but she also just really worries about Danny and thinks she sometimes sees him but that's impossible right? Alicia becomes Jazz's guardian and learns just how negligent her sister and husband were to Jazz and Danny and it broke her heart and lit a fire in her like nothing else.
This will have maximum Maddie and Jack salt with them thinking they were in the right but they just also kinda go off the deep end. This will have redeemed Vlad because yes. It will still have Sam and Tucker just in a different way than in the show. I'm thinking of having them be ghosts too but I'm leaning more towards humans that Danny meets when a portal is open again.

Okay, I only recently found out about Unidentified Flying Ship and right before then I had some gears turning about Wes already. So here's another prompt that's already written too much like a ficlet.
What if the way Wes tries to out Danny's secret is by deliberately trying to get himself in trouble at school (the danger kind, not the being a bad student kind) in the hopes to get Phantom to save his ass, and hopefully once have him transform with bystanders. Either because Danny thinks there's no one else or because it's a dire situation where he won't be able to risk any time.
Of course, this does not work, Phantom manages to save Wes time and time again without outing his secret all the while he is receiving the glory from peers for helping this seemingly clumsy danger magnet of an unlucky kid every time without fail.
Wes is infuriated by this. What will it take for anyone in Amity to notice anything at all? Has no one noticed how Danny always disappears when Wes is in danger, either? Though, he's determined and continues trying. Believing that one day someone will finally begin to question this all and will maybe start discussing it with their friends.
He didn't expect the first one to realize, to be Danny himself, though. Once he finds out, he does not stop "saving him". On the contrary- he starts paying more attention at Wes as both Phantom and Fenton. He figured what he's up to now and not only does he start helping Wes as Fenton to Wes' dismay, he starts flirting with him.
His audacity is through the roof! "No I'm not hitting on you, you freak! I'm just trying to get someone, anyone to realize what a menace you are!" Or is he? Now it's time for Wes to realize something he's been in denial of for the longest time.
Yes, he hates how no one is seeing the obvious signs that Fenton is Phantom. Yes, he hates that the few people he has mentioned his theory to think he's crazy, stupid, whatever you name it, for telling the truth. He wanted to bust Danny. That's why he keeps getting in trouble and wants Phantom to save him- that's all there is to it right?
No Wes, my son, it is not.
Somewhere along the lines of this all, Wes started to appreciate Danny saving him each time. Even though he already knew most of it was a set up! He kept doing it and it honestly warmed his heart. Through the encounters, he also started to get to know Danny as a person better. Albeit through snippets of talk one can barely call a conversation and through how careful Danny always is when saving him and others. Careful not to hurt them. He even started noticing little mannerisms and habits he doesn't notice in anyone but his brother Kyle, much of those he thinks are endearing.
After this point, probably some more shenanigans ensue and some pining starts later perhaps. Haven't figured that out yet but yes.
