The ghost boy flew over a busy city called Amity Park. His fists clenched at his sides, and his eyes glowed bright.
A few people below shouted up and pointed at the sky where he flew, but he tried to ignore them. This is all Plasmius' fault! the teen thought.
A newspaper riding the wind slammed into the ghost boy's face. He pulled it off in annoyance, and tossed it to the side. Letting it flutter down to the ground, or follow the wind's path to who-knows-where.
He already knew what the headlines said. He didn't want to read them again. Ghost Boy once again declared Amity Park's number one ghost enemy by our beloved mayor, Vlad Masters.
He chuckled to himself quietly. It was more out of anger than anything else. He was on his way to give Masters a visit, and to 'talk'.
He turned down the street of his arch enemy, flying a bit faster. The ghost boy came slowly to a stop, then paused for a second in the air as a cold chill went down his spine and through his body. His ghost sense came out in a blue wisp of breath, which told the ghost boy that Vlad was indeed home.
Frowning the ghost boy waited. Sure enough Vlad Plasmius himself came outside in his ghost form. He had obviously been expecting the teen, and smiled his signature smirk. "I thought you'd be coming here Danny. Enjoy my little announcement?" Vlad asked, but it was more of a rhetorical question. He wasn't looking for an answer.
The ghost teen Danny seethed with anger and glared at Vlad. "Listen Plasmius, It took me a long time to get my hero reputation. I don't appreciate you telling lies about me being evil."
Vlad clasped his hands. "But Daniel, I just looovee messing with your life." he snickered.
Danny clenched his fists at his side as they started to radiate with glowing green energy. He had just about had it with Vlad. Maybe it was time to teach him a lesson.
Danny flew forward in a sudden burst of rage and lashed out at Vlad. Plasmius caught Danny by the arm quickly and flipped him over to pin him to the ground by the shoulders. "Get. Off!" Danny screamed, squirming.
"Come now boy, haven't you learned by now that you're no match for me?" Vlad smirked again, making Danny freeze and narrow his eyes. He had had it with Vlad's smirks, and the way he always treated him like child.
Danny heaved upward and pushed Vlad off of him.
"Take this V-Man!!" He screamed, blasting a powerful toxic green ghost ray at Vlad. It hit his chest and sent the man backwards into the brick wall of his mansion.
Vlad got up seemingly unharmed, though the mansion was not as lucky. The wall had a gaping hole with grey, stone bricks scattered around on the sidewalk.
The man chuckled. Danny couldn't see what was so funny. "Come on boy, lashing out at me in anger? And you say that you're nothing like me." Vlad took a step forward, making him stagger back in response. "I-I'm not!"
"You're just like me." He continued forward until they were standing in the middle of the road. In the distance the sun was sinking below the horizon in a ball of orange flames.
"I. Am. Nothing. Like. You!" Danny yelled.
Surging forward, he put all of the power he had into one punch. Unfortunately, though, that wasn't enough. Vlad caught Danny by the arm, and flung him roughly to the side.
A loud thud was heard as Danny was slammed into the wall.
He fell to the concrete... StarPaw,
PART 8, (Danny),
Things were getting extremely boring. It was train, train, everyday. Though, Danny had to admit he was getting a bit better at controlling his powers.
Danny was leaning more and more towards the idea of just sneaking away at night. He'd lie awake wondering if he had any friends out there, who missed him, or if there was anyone he knew who could tell him more about his life. Vlad wouldn't tell him much more about his life, and was always vague. Guess what, Vlad wouldn't even let Danny watch the news anymore. It was the only thing that seemed interesting, and the only tie to the outside world.
"Its been two weeks since our town hero Danny Phantom went missing, and there still haven't been any sightin-" Click. "Hey!" Danny protesting when Vlad shut down the TV. "I was watching that!" he tried to snatch the remote back, but Vlad pulled it back out of his reach. "No more news." he ordered simply. "Why?" the teen countered. "It's the only good thing on TV."
Vlad sighed and rolled his eyes. "Why not watch cartoons, or horror movies?" he stuffed the remote into his pocket, so Danny wouldn't try to take it again. "Uh, because I like to be able to see what's going on outside of the mansion?" he offered in a 'duh' sort of tone. "I said you can't watch the news, and that's final." with that, Vlad stalked out of the room...
Danny had tried to turn on the news channels after Vlad let him have the remote back the next day, but they were all blocked. Figures.
Danny was sitting on the couch now, and tried to flip through the channels that weren't blocked. I guess cartoons aren't THAT bad... Danny sighed. He felt more disconnected from the real world than ever.
"Hey Jake, you know what time it is?"
Danny snorted and changed the channel. "I'm not gonna watch a cartoon that can't even take itself seriously."
Sadly, all of the cartoons were like this.. "Ugh." Danny let out a groan. Maybe they had some crime shows... luckily for him, they did. Finally, something Danny could watch. It was dramatized, majorly, of course. But hey, better than nothing right? It was an episode about some crazy old dude convincing a little kid that he knew his parents. The guy kidnapped the kid and locked him in his house.
Luckily the kid's parents were looking for him and called the police. The police asked around, and looked at surveillance cameras. Blah, blah, the kid was returned to his parents. Totally predictable.
"Hello Daniel, what are you watching?" Vlad sat down next to the teen. "Really dramatic crime shows." Danny answered, yawning. "Extremely boring."
"I see." it was a different episode, about some sort of robbery. In moments, Vlad was glued to the TV. "Oh, should I give you and the TV some alone time together?" Danny chuckled. "What was that?" Vlad asked. Danny shook his head and rolled his eyes. "I'm going to bed." he got up and tossed the remote on the couch next to Vlad. "See ya old man." the teen waved goodnight, and headed for his room...
An hour later, Danny sneaked out of his room to check if Vlad was asleep. He had passed out on the couch, and some old black and white sitcom was on. "I don't want to marry James mother! I'm a woman, a woman with rights!"
Danny made a fake gagging noise. "Haha."
Making sure to be quiet, Danny grabbed a blanket and lay it down on Vlad's sleeping figure softly. "He looks so peaceful." he joked, snickering.
Hmmm... Danny looked at the doorway that led into the hall. Well, since Vlad was asleep... maybe he could sneak out.
Just for a bit, not for long. Y'know, just to get some fresh air.. He'd be back before Vlad ever noticed. Danny sneaked past the couch, and out into the hall. He made his way quietly to the lobby where the big double doors stood tall. He'd been thinking about this moment for roughly a week, and he guessed there was no reason to delay any longer...... StarPaw
I thought it'd be good to just get the story movin', eh? Enough with the filler chapters. They're BORING! Right? *snickers*
Yes, you did tell me. ^^ so many times you did.
And hey, at least you rewrite it when you don't think it's good enough, that's actually very good. It helps you practice.
Usually I just do this XP and the only thing that keeps me ever posting on them is you guys. (even though I don't post much.)
That's how I feel, only I feel that way not only half way through, but probably 2 chapters in. ^^ No, I can't take a break either. If I take a break, I'll lose interest more. Like is what is happening now. But thanks for the offer.
And, one of the greatest authors? *ducks head in embarrassment* I guess reading all those books in 6th grade helped *winks*
But you know who my favorite author was? Yogurt13! :D Yogurt doesn't post anymore, I don't think, but she was the whole reason I started writing. ^^
Dear LunaDiana (again),
Can I vote for someone who doesn't write anymore? StarPaw,
StarPaw, it's okay if you lose interest in something. I admit, that I sometimes feel that way as well. I'm excited to write a fanfic, but then I feel like I should give up half-way through. That's because I feel like the story isn't that great. Another reason is that I have another idea, but I don't want to start either because I want to plan it out, or if I want to wait until my first one is finished. Anyways, it's okay if you want to take a break for awhile to come up with fresh ideas.
And don't put yourself down like that, please. You are one of the greatest writers on this board. Mostly everyone here appreciates your work.
Brain: Pinky, are you pondering what I'm pondering?
Pinky: Um...I think so, Brain, but if they called them 'Sad Meals', kids wouldn't buy them.

DUH! Haven't I told you? Maybe it was someone else... But I KNOW that I've told you that you are my ABSOLUTE favorite author on here. All those fanfics of yours.... GONE! My fav. was that crossover with Gravity Falls. GLITTER! Hehe.. but anyways... You think you are a perfectionist? LOOK AT ME!! Seriously, sometimes I just delete my chapters, and I'd start over. But anyways again.. :D I AM SO GLAD YOU RESPONDED!!!!!!!!!!!!!! And PLEASE vote on my Fanfic of The Year post. THANK YA!!!!!
finished writing Doppleganger. XD The end of the part was actually fun to write. ^^
(and I said end of the PART, not end of the story. Just so you guys don't get confused. The story is still running...) StarPaw,
It still didn't post my comment. *sighs*
Hopes it posts this time.
I'm really sorry! I DIDN'T MEAN TO BLOW YOU OFF!
It just didn't post. T^T
Really? I inspire you? *bows head in embarrassment* I really wish I enjoyed writing fan-fics as much as I did back when I started.
IT WAS ALL I COULD DO! XD I'd come home, and be so excited to see the comments and to write more. (it's the reason I ever stopped goin' outside. XP)
And I used to spend HOURS on end here.
I wish I don't always quit things. I find something I REALLY like, it's all I can ever do or think about, then I lose interest and quit.
I'm sorry I said my stories are bleh, I'm a very modest person and I never feel like anything is perfect enough. ^^
Whether it's art, or writing, I see people are always better than me and I don't know, I just wanna be better.
I'm a perfectionist. XP
I'll admit.. my stories aren't really bad... I just don't wanna congradulate myself. ^^
Thanks for all you guys said. StarPaw,
I think I'll write a part today.... Of this one.... *shrugs* lets see if I finish it. ^^ StarPaw,
I guess so... it's just when I first came here 6 months ago, the VERY first fanfic I ever read was HERS. I stayed up ALL night to finish reading it. Same with all the other ones. But that took FOREVER, as I had other stuff to do too, so it took a week or 2. In fact, Danny's Doppelganger is the only one left from then. StarPaw was the reason I posted my first fanfic. She inspired my THAT much. I had written another one, but that one didn't get finished, as I had NO fans on it. And when I had NO ONE posting on my first one, YOU and HER inspired me to finish it. And I posted my second successful fanfic. This time, it's Romy0 who wants me to continue. I do anyways. And THEN, I read this post of her's saying all her fanfics are BLEH. Her saying that just HURT, like crazy. She is my favorite author EVER on here, but if she continues this, saying that she writes Bleh stories, I don't know.
Well, thanks for reading this backstory. :D And thanks for trying to make me feel better.

Bleh? BLEH?! NO! Your stories are ANYTHING but BLEH!!!!!! I remember just a couple of weeks before 4th of July when I read EVERY SINGLE ONE of your fanfics that were on the board. YOU were the reason I started writing on here. You inspired me THAT much! So do NOT go Blehing yourself and your fanfics! You'd be Blehing me. But whatever you do, do NOT stop writiing on here! I would be VERY sad to see my favorite author go JUST because SHE thinks she's "Bleh".
"Devotion is strongest when you most need it." ~Me
Thank you. ^^
As for why I am disappointed in all them? Many reasons.
The structure could use a lot of work, and so on.
But mostly it's because the stories are so... ehh... How do I put this?
They just go.. bleh ... they go everywhere, and everything. It's not all neat and orderly like it should be. It's all just... Bleh...
Get what I'm saying?
