My constructed world where various fantasy sub-genres take place with aliens who resemble mythological creatures.
The Return of Dani Phantom by R.tistiC
So picture this, two years after Phantom Planet, the series Grand Finale. Danny Phantom is still the Hero of World though a few organizations like Guys in White seem him as threat. Also Danielle been on her own all this time until she comes back to Amity Park.
Going through the motions a bit, it starts with her getting hit by a device that makes her lose her powers until she slowly regains with help from one of Danny’s Ghost Zone allies. Then its kind of a mini mystery to find out where is Amity Park’s hero and why the town is overrun with ghosts.
What I like about it
There a lot I like about it personally, first you should know that I like Dani Phantom, part of me reading this because I wish she had more than two episodes (and a brief cameo at the end). I tend to have a tendency to like underutilized characters with a lot of potential and Dani fits that bill.
Now here’s where I do my best not to spoil the story via moments (Sure the story is 8 years old but I only found it two years ago and I want new readers for this story):
-While the Ghosts are still fought, the few non-ghosts in the Rogues Gallery seem to be the major antagonists and drive the drama, making it pretty different in that regard.
-Danny’s improvement with his powers ( Duplication, Ice powers)
-The divergence given to Dani’s powers. It goes to show how much the author notices things about the characters like how Danielle can do ghost ray kicks unlike Danny. ( In the comments you can say whether or not, but I can’t recall Danny using energy kicks). And this borders on spoiler territory but as an extension to this, Danielle comes up with her own super move, kinda her unique counterpart to Danny’s Ghostly Wail that think really fits her.
-How it addresses one of dangling plot lines scrapped in the final season (i.e. that the Fentons were planned to adopt Danielle). And just seeing how she feels about each of the Fenton’s is great too.
Dislike/Could have improved
There’s not much I dislike and I’m not going to get too emotional over an 8 year old story where the writer has gotten better. Its mostly just nitpicks to show what not to do when writing or a matter of personal taste.
-The 2 year timeskip in that overall it doesn’t seem to necessary, that is the story would be almost the same without it. Though the author admits that it so certain characters don’t recognize Danielle at first so I don’t have a real problem with it.
-I’m mixed on the ending but I doesn’t ruin the story for me and it does end on a good (but unexpected note) I can talk about it more in the comments to people who read the story if they want since I’m trying not to spoil.
-So I had to address the touchy subject on describing about certain characters. Let me make it clear, I don’t have a problem with saying a character is African American, its just weird it being brought up when nobody else’s background is brought up. I know its to let people new to the Phandom or forgot what the look like have an idea but yeah. My solution would be to simply replace “African-American” with dark or brown skin, short,sweet and fixes my real issue, keeping the flow of the story without being too distracting.
So as one of the first Danny Phantom I fics, about a character that never got explored as well as she could of you bet this one is one of my favorites. This one gets my special rating of Must Read, especially if you are Danny Phantom fan with an appreciation for Dani Phantom and her bond with Danny and wanted her arc materialized in some form.
Here is a link below:
Should note there is a sequel but I might review that sometime in the future. Until then, wait for the next Cartoon Fanwork recommend. Don’t be afraid to comment or request some (good) ones!
From my Arcane Realm Blog
The Ghulat Wars were a series of conflicts first fought between the invading army of Shaytan and the Djinn. It eventually expanded to include forces from the Celestial Pantheons and Faerie Courts in an effort to contain the rapidly expanding hordes. In total the wars lasted roughly 120,000 years, give or take 500.
The Set Up
As life flourished for Djinn on Kaf, another near forgotten race of jinn known as the Shaytan were extracting various resources on their homeworld and solar system. With their progress they were able to create an armed spacefleet designed to establish an interstellar empire. Ever expanding, they set their sights on Kaf’s solar system and planed to add it to their collection.
At first the Shaytan did reconnaissance on the lifeforms of Kaf and attempted to subtly exract the planets resources to weaken the populous into submission. Natives like Djinn and…

The Hero’s Journey is the most well known of the “journey” story structures. But there are two other, lesser known ones: the Feminine Journey and the Masculine Journey. Before I go further, know that although the names of these structures refer to gender, they have little to do with the actual gender of the character involved. These plot archetypes are actually based on the stories of two Sumerian gods: Inanna (feminine) and Gilgamesh (masculine).
These journeys are character driven. They are both centered around the character going through some type of major internal growth. The main difference being that in the Masculine Journey, the character is supported in his quest. In the Feminine Journey, the character is not supported.

Now technically 2 or 3 are closed but most are semi-closed or open which favors him. And I know he’s trying to push for questions but c’mon Bernie strategy was to get superdelagates from the get go, they go to the candidate with the most pledged in theory. Susan does know her stuff so lets hope Hillary Clinton makes through on most of her promises, cause people have right to be skeptical on her foreign policy, economic, and especially bank breaking promises.

Hope everybody had a good holiday. It’s been a while since my last entry but a couple of things have been going on for me.
First is that I’ve found a website called TerraChronica, to make a wiki for my fantasy world the Arcane Realm. The reason I like it is because their is a lot of presets made for those building a world. As such most of updates to that world will be on that site as my main worldbuilding website for now. If you’re interested here is my world: http://terrachronica.com/worlds/1086.
Also I have too many things I want to work at one time which ironically has been keeping me from getting started on any of them. To remedy this, I’ve set up a sort of plan for what I want to do for my next project.
First I will be setting up a project called Wiki Trio: Headcanon Journeys. Its a fancomic based on old crossover adventure I though of as a middle schooler. Only what and who will be featured is updated to my current tastes so expect a lot of nods to fandoms if you decide to check it out.
