Mom Said It’s My Turn On The Wing AU
I present to you, Winged Danny Phantom with WING SPIKES, courtesy of the Spur-Winged Lapwing. Wing headcanons under the cut.
Danny - Spur-winged Lapwing
Jazz - Great Blue Heron
Maddie - Grey Falcon
Jack - Spur-winged Goose
Danny and Jazz take their plumage colouration after their mom but are both water birds after their dad. Danny inherited Jack’s wing spurs which are a super uncommon trait. Jazz easily has the biggest wings in the family and Danny often feels that his are inadequate. Before getting his ghost powers Danny had a hard time flying for any extended period of time. His Dad keeps assuring Danny that his wings will grow with him as he gets older.
Tucker - Goldfinch
Angela - Goldfinch
Maurice - Goldfinch
All the Foleys have Goldfinch wings which is a bit uncommon but not exactly rare. Though since they all have rather small songbird wings they don’t do much flying and Tucker has a pass for flight related gym activities. Every now and then his parents not-so-subtly try to suggest nice Goldfinch girls for Tucker to meet and “get to know”.
Sam - Raven
Pamela - Crow
Jeremy - Blue Jay
Pamela resents her wings and regularly lightens them so that they’re more of a grey/beige colour. Jeremy is just a regular dude but he really like his wings; his favourite colour is blue. Sam wholeheartedly embraces her wings and is pretty smug that hers are the biggest in her family. She often uses them to cover Danny and Tucker.
Vlad - Black Swan
Dani - Spur-winged Lapwing
Vlad’s wings invert colour in ghost form just like Dani and Danny’s do. Jack insists on referring to Vlad and himself as “goose buddies”. This is very fucking annoying for Vlad but everyone else finds it hilarious. Vlad can’t fold his wings flat against his back which he finds very annoying. Dani uses here wing spurs to poke people at any given opportunity.
Valerie - Barn Owl
Damien - Great Horned Owl
Val and her Dad have both been living up to their reputation of Night Owl these last few years, and honestly, they both secretly prefer it. Damien thinks his wings are pretty average and normal. His height and the size of his wings accidentally intimidates people, even when he tries not to. Valerie has the softest, prettiest wings in school, and they look like they have stars on them, or at least according to Danny.
Wes - Wood Stork
When you invert Wes’ wings they look suspiciously like Phantom’s...
Lancer - Great Grey Owl
Great big wings that are about as grey as Lancer’s outlook on life but excellent for sheltering several children from falling rubble during a ghost attack.
Dash - Stellar Sea Eagle
Kwan - Harpy Eagle
EAGLE BUDDIES. In this AU Football is played in the air and on the ground like some kind of American Quidditch but still with only one ball.
Paulina - Scarlet Macaw
People are often distracted by Paulina’s colourful plumage and underestimate her.
