DP: What's it Feel Like...Title: What's it Feel Like to be a Ghost (SongShot)
Summary: When Danny finally decides to tell Sam how he feels about her, it's the greatest day of his life. Until something completely unexpected happens, and Danny faces the possibility of losing Sam. Forever.
Author's Notes: What's it Feel Like to be a Ghost is by Taking Back Sunday from the album Louder Now.
For challengeAUTHORITY, a great sounding board. Thanks for tolerating my tendency to share ideas when I have no one else's ear; it kept me from dying of plot-bunny-itis.

"I thought you said you just had leftovers, Tucker?" Sara asked as Tucker finally made it to the deck of the Op-Center with several plastic bags full of fireworks hooked over his arms.
"I do!" he protested as he dumped them onto the metal decking. He heard footsteps behind him coming up the stairwell and straightened, yelling, "And I could have used a little help!"
Danny and Sam both appeared, Sam carrying nothing, Danny carting another set of bags filled with chips, sodas and, much to his great relief and dismay, no ice. He dropped them next to the bags of fireworks as Sam headed for the railing, dragging Sara with her.
"It has the most amazing view, doesn't it?" she asked Sara as she pointedly ignored Tucker.
Danny chuckled as he sorted through the food and drinks, grinning as he pulled out a handful of sandwiches in baggies. "Mom made us real food, Tucker," he called over to the other boy, who was emptying his bags and sitting the fireworks in neat piles of

I heard theyve all been sworn to secrecy until after last period, Tucker muttered under his breath to Sam and Danny as they passed the latest class to exit Lancers class. They werent the last class of the day, only second to last, but whatever it was that had all of Lancer's other students squirming since first period was enough to make the loser trio of Casper High worried.
Sam shrugged, the least phased of them all. It cant be illegal, I know he cleared it through Ishiyama.
It was Dannys turn to snort as he pushed his hair back from his eyes. He also got the A-List out of detention how many times by going to her?
Point taken, Sam said with a roll of her eyes as they slipped through the door of Lancer's classroom and headed for the far corner.
It was their habitual seating choice in any of the classrooms, affording a good view of everyone and everything that went on inside, a fair vie

Spring break rocked. Spring break of senior year rocked out loud. They'd waited for the movie marathon at Danny's house until the last Saturday of it, and he and Tucker had even managed to force Sam to sit through all three of the Lord of the Rings movies. The uncut and extended director's editions that made her cringe at the very sight of them.
They'd stayed up all night, emptied the fridge and, okay, the kitchen, of all edible food (not including anything his mom tried to cook), and then slept until afternoon. It was, Danny decided as he tossed a wave after the retreating figures of his best friend and his girlfriend, the best way to wind down the last spring break they'd be having together in high school.
College, though, was a completely different beast. Sam had already made noises about Mexico and Hawaii, her treat, and an entirely different place to corrupt with their particular brand of havoc.
It would be fun. At least as fun as the past year had been,

Graduation dawned in sunshine and cheerful expectancy for four nearly former Casper High students. For one there was the excitement of graduating early, of heading into the world secure in the knowledge that she was well loved and wanted. For another there was the weight of a diamond ring in his pocket and the fervent wish to hear a jubilant yes when the question was asked.
And for two others was the contentment that plans that had been months in the making were about to reach culmination.
When Danny woke up early that morning, it was first with a frown; he had woken up alone. It was an unusual thing for him to wake up alone since Spring Break. Hed taken to spending his nights with Sam, whether making love to her or just holding her. Either way he was content. But this morning he woke at the customary time, just before sunrise, to find that he didnt have to wake up, to give Sam a hurried yet leisurely kiss, and dart back home before someone found him m

It was the hottest day of the year.
Okay, maybe not the hottest, Danny amended, but it was a close second if the sweat that plastered his clothes to his body was anything to judge by. Of course, the state of undress most of the citizens of Amity Park were currently sporting only emphasized the fact that it was hotter than… Well, hell. Even Tucker and Sam had bowed to the great sun god and had spurned their usual ensembles in favor of things that were lighter and less covering.
Of course, in Sam's case, it was because she had volunteered (translation: been volunteered by her mother) to help with one of the water slides in the children's area of the annual Fourth of July Celebration.
It was a big deal to Amity Park. Because of the celebration of the country's independence, yes, but also because they'd been liberated from another hostile takeover from the Ghost Zone a year before. It had been interesting, to say the least, and Danny was still glancing around ne

I can honestly say that for the first 18 years of my life, I didn't believe in love. Being a goth, I wrote my fair share of love poetry, but most of them were either gothic tales of love, or love making someone go insane. But love was a foreign concept to me. And seeing the divorce statistics, seeing my mom cry herself to sleep when she found out my dad was having an affair, and broken hearts left after a relationship, I was positive it didn't exist. Love, I figured, was something that boy-crazy, hopeless romantics, damsel-in-distress types of girls, believed in. I definitely didn't.
Valerie, my best friend, laughed whenever I proclaimed my unbelief in love, and said that one day I'd fall head over heels in love and she'd never let me forget it. Thankfully, I haven't—I would HATE to be one of those swooning boy-obsessed girls that I ran into at college, like my ex-roommate, who wore too much pink and was incessantly annoying—but I believe in love now.

Danny appeared at the door to my hotel room, an infectious grin crossing his face. "You like your room, Sammy-kins?"
I scowled at him, throwing a shoe in his direction. His hand came up in a leisurely arc to intercept the tossed article with a practiced ease that few people knew he possessed. He gazed down at the shoe for a moment, his smile only growing. "Oh yes, you must really hate this. Two weeks of being forced away from your parents." His sapphire eyes rolled as he tossed the shoe back onto my bed. "You done unpacking yet?"
"Do I look done?" I asked disagreeably, pushing my sweaty hair out of my forehead and glaring down at the clothes still in my suitcase. There was no way it was fair that he could be so cool and comfortable when everybody else was miserable. "Danny, it's 98 degrees outside – at least try to act

The first week of December and the town had been snowed in for weeks already. School had been closed three out of five days for two weeks running, and the current day was no different as it found four wrapped and bundled teenagers trudging through knee deep snow as they made their way to the Nasty Burger instead of Casper High. It was the same walk theyd made every day that the school had been granted a snow day and, like the snow day being the same, the screaming that followed handfuls of snow down warm and cozy jackets was all too familiar.

He's getting married.
I should probably start at the beginning, though. Tucker's been my best friend since…well, forever. He's always been there for me, even when we were two freshman losers who had every night free from then to college. He was even the one that caused the accident that turned me half ghost. Yes, that was all Tucker's fault. He convinced me to go into the portal and try to fix it—why he, the techno geek, didn't try to fix it himself is beyond me—and there, I got the biggest shock of my life, in both literal and figurative ways. Thus, my alter ego Danny Phantom was born.
I have a lot to thank Tucker for, mostly the whole half ghost thing. I don't know what I would be if I wasn't Danny Phantom. The whole superhero gig helped me a lot with my self confidence—well, Jazz said so at least, and since she's a world renowned child psychologist, she probably knows what she's talking about—and it helpe

"I'm off." A deep and husky voice stated dully before he picked up his helmet and left threw the door not waiting for a reply. As he left the house he ran a hand threw his messy black hair, his icy-blue eyes narrowing in annoyance at the thought of another day of being in school.

Shoulders were sagging, mind still plagued with the memory of what he had seen.
Dead bodies littered the streets, children screaming as they drowned in their own blood. His own figure, suspended above the carnage, watching with gleaming red eyes and blood-soaked gloves.
Phantom had asked clockwork…pleaded with him to help him find a way out of his terrible future. The ancient ghost simply closed his eyes in sadness, turning away.
"I have meddled enough. No longer can I alter your timeline."
The city below him gleamed beautifully, while his vision flashed between this one, and the future where buildings had been brutally torn down, the aquamarine bay dyed red with blood. Danny let his vision blur, thankful that he could no longer see.

Wow. I never would have figured Valerie would be friends with the girl who used to be a goth. That's what Tucker said, at least. Not that she doesn't look goth now, but at least she doesn't have multiple face piercing or something creepy like that. She does have that tattoo on her back though, but that's more seductive that gothic, anyways.
She is a bit of a bitch, however. Though that's starting to sound like an understatement…
I shifted uncomfortably in my seat. The least the Maid of Honor could have done was to give up her aisle seat for me. I mean, it's not like she won't fit in it, or whatever. But she seems intent on holding on to old grudges, since all she did was give me a smirk and glare at me some more when I asked.
I glared right back at her. All I did was run into her. Why did she have to act like I was some sort of evil monster? All she's done from the few minutes I've talked to her is be sarcastic and rude to me. And she wo

"Popcorn!" Tucker yelled as he dove back into his lounge with a full bucket, complete with extra butter and practically no salt.
Danny snorted. "That's so not going to help you beat me, Tucker. I am the god of this game."
Tucker laughed as he tossed a handful of kernels into his mouth and wiped his fingers off on his pants. "You say that, Danny. And yet I still beat you three out of five times."
"That's because you cheat. Cheat codes are cheating, and I can't cheat."
Sam shot an exasperated glance at Danny, her laptop momentarily forgotten as her fingers rested on the keys. "Danny, I'm not sure about it, but I really don't think Clockwork meant no cheat codes when you made the promise to your family."
She heard a snort, then a groan as Danny's car died a fiery death against one of the game controlled cars with a room shaking boom. With a sigh she turned her a

Danny Fenton is a freak. How Tucker, the nice geek who talks endlessly and is always cheerful ever became friends with a jerk like that is beyond me.
That's really all I can say on the matter.

I can't believe Val even considered helping me hook up with him. Did Val ever even meet him?
He was pretty well known, actually, which is probably why Tuck and Val wanted to surprise me. I actually bought his book—I was in a rush, and I saw the cover, the black sky coated in thick fog with the barest hint of starlight peeking through. It reminded me of what purgatory must look like, so I grabbed the book and planned to read it during the wait for my internship interview.

"Danny? Danny!" Danny's Fenton's head jerked up upon hearing Tucker yelling at him. He and Sam were looking at their friend worriedly. Nearly sixteen-year-old Danny straightened up, moving his head fully from where it had been on his folded arms atop the lunch table. His blinked sleepily a few times.
"I asked you if you needed help with your homework about five times!" Tucker exclaimed. Danny blinked, yawning.
"Tuck, you're a god-send, I swear." He mumbled out in thanks to his dark-skinned friend.
Over the past two years, the trio had changed some, and looks did change for Tucker and Sam. Danny's clothes were pretty much the same, as if he was too tiered to care. The only difference was his shirt was completely white, and with slightly longer sleeves.

He of course wore protective wear, he wasnt that foolish, his white and black hazmat suit covering over most of his skin as he stepped into the hole in the wall created by the portal. His parents had been working on it for months, had gone through so much trouble, had so many meetings with the government and got so many grants to do this experiment, to create this portal to the mystical Ghost Zone that they adamantly insisted existed, only to have it fail spectacularly. A brief crackle of electricity across the metallic frame and that was all it had done.
And so now he found himself inside the troubled portal, trying to figure out what went wrong, all the while wondering exactly why he wanted to, why the elusive answer bothered him so.

Danny looked up in horror as the Nasty Burger's explosion reached towards the sky in a dazzling array of colors.
That's it. He had been too late, no second chances. He had been the hero, defeated the bad guy (even though the bad guy was far stronger) but had failed to get to his friends and family in time.
As the smoke that was as black as his oncoming grief rose and started to part, he continued to sit from the spot where he had been hurled and stared at where all the people he loved most in life had been just a few minutes ago. How could this have happened? Didn't he prove that he wasn't bad? Shouldn't someone help? A hero? No, he was the hero and he wasn't even strong enough to save himself.
As all these thoughts passed through his mind, his vision had started blurring. Danny touched his head and found that he was bleeding heavily. He quickly struggled to his feet, but stumbled a bit, his vision starting to get worse.

Under the cover of her red visor, Valerie kept a fierce glare trained on the figure darting and looping in front of her, his spectral trail whipping behind him as if to taunt the young ghost hunter.
Who, by the way, couldn't help but growl angrily at that thought.
Then again, everything about the elusive Danny Phantom seemed to taunt her. His smile, his laugh, his glare, his blasts… even just looking into his eyes was enough to rile a murderous vengeance in Valerie.
It was like his very existence was a mockery of everything she stood for, everything she fought against. Which in a way it was. After all, Valerie had been fighting Phantom longer then any other ghost (for nearly two years now, in fact), and so far he was the only one who always managed to slip from her grasp every time she got close to capturing him.
Valerie had never had anything evade her so successfully before. She'd always been the kind of girl who got her way once she

"'Danny, gone to find ghost.'" He read aloud, seeing his mother's writing. He then saw Jazz's writing under it. "'Danny, gone to make sure dad doesn't do something stupid.'" Chuckling a little, he crumpled the note and tossed it into the garbage can. "Looks like I'm home alone for supper tonight…" The Halfa mused, before grinning. White rings washed over him, leaving behind his alter ego. Thanks to Sam, who nearly mauled him when he timidly said maybe he should change his look a little, his Phantom side was a bit different. Because his hair had started to fall into his eyes normally, it was like that in his ghost form too. But what was Sam's doing was his actual outfit.

I must first begin by dispelling any thoughts that this is simply a review of the series finale Phantom Planet. This essay is indeed a theorized analysis of Phantom Planet, both as an episode and in context with the series as a whole. Using the mass of information gained from the powerful season finale, my goal is to tie up the series as a whole, showing what ambiguity was cleared up in regards to characters or events and what this episode shows about the future of the Danny Phantom characters that the episodes never got the chance to explore with further seasons.
There are of course many topics that can be discussed from the infinite knowledge gained from this episode, but Ive selected some of the more prevalent ones, both in the episode and in the minds of the fans of the show. The first topic I would like to discuss is the topic of Valerie and the lack of attention paid to the revelation of
