Creepy gross AU idea?
So like, what if everything's the exact same, except Dan has done some kind of overshadowing thing on his dead human half. And it's noticeable.
When Dan calls up the white rings in front of Danny, Danny first sees a rotting reanimated corpse. Like skin falling off and stuff. So Dan uses an illusionary power to cover that up.
When Sam and Tucker find Dan by the Nasty Burger, Sam mentions something reeking like some kind of meat. Tucker, being the expert he is, sniffs, but says it smells more like a dead animal. Sam, of course, says that's what she'd just said. Dan changes the subject to raging against the machine and stuff.
And Jazz, when exposing Dan to everyone, knocks him out of the body. Horrified faces on seeing the body, Maddie screaming, "Danny!"
Just a thought.
(Not sure how the overshadowing thing would work, though, because Dan would have to absorb the human body while being a ghost (maybe it's similar to what Danny always does? Maybe that's why they both use a ring transformation?), but it would kind of make sense for Dan to want to remerge in a twisted way like that.)
