I know I’ve thrown around a lot of various Ghost King headcanons but you want to know the version I really believe in and want? Danny had a legitimate strong claim to the throne when he defeated Pariah Dark but he was still young, seen as an annoyance, like he wasn’t a real ghost. Most of the Zone and it’s leadership just kind of decided to ignore Phantom’s claim and focused more on preventing Vlad from acting on his much more tenuous claim.
But then the years go on, Phantom becomes much more powerful, he learns what it means to be a ghost and understands more of Zone culture. He still fights off ghosts but they soon recognize he’s not just being a killjoy, he’s fulfilling his obsession and self appointed guardianship of Amity. Agreements are reached and truces conducted and pretty soon the ghosts think to themselves that Danny isn’t that bad. He’s just as much a ghost as they are and he’s genuinely fun to fight. They start to think that he wouldn’t be the worst choice for King.
Danny makes ghost friends, spends more time in the Zone in general. He forms strong alliances with many powerful and influential ghosts. More and more see Danny as he is, a strong ghost with a compassionate heart and a dedication to protecting others, living and dead. Ghosts like Frostbite and Dora and Pandora see these traits and kind of edge him towards his destiny. Some Ghost Zone politics lessons here, a little bit of royal history there, enough to prep Danny for what they see as inevitable.
By the time Danny’s senior year comes around, it doesn’t matter that there’s other candidates for the throne. Danny is the only real choice having gained the support of most major members of the Zone. Unlike Vlad and the others who were actively vying for power, Danny was the only one who seemed to be willing to help out the ghosts. The Zone looked at itself and imagined a King who would fight for them, who wasn’t just the strongest and the fiercest but the kindest. With enough built up support, Danny was named heir apparent.
When he was shocked and stammered out that he didn’t want this, that the ghosts couldn’t possibly want this, he was shocked to see how many ghosts wanted him. Danny had never been wanted before and then it was all about his powers or his connections. This time, for the first time, he was wanted for just being him. He did a lot of thinking, long hours of soul searching before accepting the claim. It was a job he felt he could do in bones, knew that he would be good at, that would fulfill both his ghost obsession and his human desire to help.
Danny started out as the Dark Horse candidate, the one no one wanted or was expecting to win. He ends up with the crown not because he fought harder or took it by force, but because his very nature was enough to change minds, to make the ghosts wonder if maybe it was possible for a King to actually be kind.

update on this blog!
okay so this is a long time coming but as everyone knows, i had knee surgery two months ago, and in those two months i’ve dealt with INSANE amounts of personal life shit getting in the way. i still have a ton of thranduil muse & i want to continue to be here to interact and build relationships & write with all of you. i’m going to be leaving to a funeral 5/18-5/23 and so i will be here on mobile at best. after that, i’m going to start my internship with a pharmacy & also going to be nannying for a family friend, & considering i have trouble walking/standing w/o a cane still, chances are i won’t have the energy to be here. i really aprpeciate everyone here for their patience as i figure out my life rn, but if anyone wants to unfollow/break mutual rn bc i will not be as active, that’s totally understandable as well!
i will be mobile only for the time being & for the forseeable future, but i am still eager to write, to plot, to talk with you all & i’ll be available on my phone for the majority of the trip + the next few months. i might be able to get on my laptop here after the trip, if i have the energy. for anyone who wants to continue to talk, my ims are always open, and i would really appreciate if anyone who hasn’t filled out my interest checker does so i can get a starting point for what i want to build up during this like. adjustment period.
in the meantime, i just updated my mains/exclusives list, and i’m much more active on twitter bc mobile only (@dykenob1) & my discord is sexy elf king brainrot#9284 for anyoen who wants to contact me there! thank you all i love u all so much & i give u all lots of loving thoughts & prayers.

Okay, so. Before I go even further in last night's stream, Sykkuno was obviously back! He said he wasn't completely better but he was mostly recovered and was going to aim for a short stream(and then lost track of time and was on until tsunami like normal).
His side effects were very bad, he got so unlucky. His head started hurting within an hour of his shot and by that night he had a fever. Chills came along with that and on Friday, he could barely move. His family was still in Vegas so they were there to get him water and stuff. Saturday was a lot of the same, but he was feeling better, and obviously Sunday he still didn't feel 100% but felt good enough to stream. His mind was slow but he still did the Vault! Hacked both laptops(Failed once) and the first thermite(X got the second two first try, huge moment for the character! But we're not going to talk about X after he and Yuno parted at the Burger Shot, okay? Okay). He posted a new picture of Bimbus with a shark toy(Bimbus looks so happy in the picture)!
He was in Ludwig's Gartic Phone lobby. He didn't drink because he was still recovering from the vaccine, and neither did Corpse so they were fine. Lobby was Ludwig, Corpse, Sykkuno, Toast, Jack, Brooke, Wendy, Abe, Miyoung, Lily, Michael, Scarra. Really decent ground and it was so much fun. I miss OTV and Friends.
There was a lot of jokes about Sykkuno ditching his old friends for his new cool GTA friends(Specifically XQC) but obviously, those were just jokes. Like always in Gartic Phone, they teased him about Shark Girl. Ludwig called Sykkuno his favorite student too.
There was an adorable one that started as Corpse playing Gartic Phone with friends and ended as a sleepy Corpse calling Sykkuno and Corpse says that it was a better ending, that it told the future, and Sykkuno agreed it was very accurate. The last round had so many Corpse and Sykkuno prompts and Lily, Michael, and Toast all got fed up.
Otherwise, it was so funny. Sykkuno streaming Gartic phone was EVERYTHING. I was laughing so much I had the hiccups. I want to see more Gartic Phone. I love GTA but variety is fun. I need to go and watch the rest of the lobby from Brooke's POV because I miss everyone. They played Geoguesser and I might skip some of the Valorant but we'll see.
