Song: Heavy in your arms By: Florence and the Machine
"... My love has concrete feet My love's an iron ball Wrapped around your ankles Over the waterfall..."
Vlad and Danny have a taxing relationship. Not only is there a sufficient age gap between them, but there is also rivalry and bad family history. Thier relationship is a crushing weight of morality, obligation and responsbility.
Despite the bitter feelings they share with one another, the fact remains that they are also the only two ghost hybrids in the world. Whether Danny cares to admit it or not he is drawn to Vlad because the billionaire understands what it's like to live a double life and to undergo ectoplasmic transformations. Vlad is his only source of knowlege about his changing ghostly form.
The waterfall in this case happens to be the Earth since it's made up of eighty percent water.
Since I need to work on how I draw the Pompous part of this pairing, I decided to do it by sketching it tons.
I'm definitely not satisfied with Vlad in this one, as I am never with him and I probably never will, but it's better then my first few drawings of him, at least.
Digital helps over traditional here, cause I don't have to waste as many sheets of paper ruined by my continuous erasing. 'nuff said.
On a side note, I decided to try easing myself into this fandom and pairing by starting a collection of drabbles (it should be something like 100 drabbles for 100 days by using 100 random words from an online generator). Is any of you interested in me trying to post them here? Just askin'.
Photoshop sketch. I have like, 3 differently coloured versions of this, but I don't think it'd be fair to post them up as separate pieces so I just picked this one.
Ok, I lied, instead of giving you people a good drawing Vlad/Danny, I give you a crappy sketch Vlad/Danny.
Ok, I think there's no need for an explanation, but just in case, that's the Mirror of Erised (not movie-wise, as you might notice...) from the Harry Potter Books.
The Mirror makes you see your heart's deepest desire, what you long for. For a moment, I thought about drawing Mirror!Vlad with Maddie and a child Danny, or just Mirror!Vlad as Danny's father, but then I opted for this one. After all, it's just a sketch.
Crossovers with HP are neat for three things, really: the mirror, the boggart and the Weasley twins. Or, in the case of DP and HP, the mirror, the boggart and the ghosts.
I SO want to write a drabble or a small shot with all those elements, but I'm unsure about it. After all, I am already busy with the 100 drabbles and I am not sure I should take anymore new fandom projects, not until I've established reassurance over my grasp on the characters.
(in relation to the drabbles. I am not going to venture over them being too dark, unless readers want that.)
Ok, I'm finished. proper drawing and a new drabble will be up sometimes during this week? :3
TWAS THE SEASON FOR THE YAOI~ *shot* Seriously... this wasn't supose to happen.. DAMN YOU POMPOUS PEP ! I was drawing for a PV thingy, Not even Danny related what so ever! NOT DANNY RELATED AND THIS COMES OUT! I DON'T GET IT HAND! WHY MUST YOU BETRAY ME.
I just drew a side ways face, the nosed happened to look like a "Danny nose" and This is how my train of thought went: "OH~ That looks like a Danny nose~ I wanna try drawing Sam next to him... why would I do that I dislike Amethyist Ocean... I'll give her a Jewish nose, since she's jewish!.. looks like a Vlad nose... *brain fries... colors on sketch*... WHAT HAVE I DONE *HAPPY/SCARED*..o3o"
Blame the noses, why doncha, Elaine... *corner/foreveralone*
HAPPY HOLIDAYS HUMANS~ LET ALL D.P. POMPOUS PEP LIVE ON~ ^0^
Yes I did a meme pertaining to Danny Phantom.... I COULDN'T HELP MYSELF! If you're interested to what I have to say, Thanks ^0^~ If you're going to just look at the pic and comment, by all means, do it *shrug* If you're going to do none of the above, okay on that too...
let's start , shall we?
2) MY FAVORITE CHARACTER(S): It was supposed to be Vlad. Alas I don't follow directions and I do it my way. I can't help but put Valerie Grey, Jasmine Fenton, and Vladimir Masters/Plasmius. -I love Valerie she had very good character development and I simply adore her. Her first appearance she was a total 'itch and didn't know the value of money or hard work nor true friends, but in the end reality hits her. She was an enemy of our dear Hero, but who wouldn't. Danny did ruin her teenage happiness along with the ghost puppy; If I were her, I'd blasted him too. -Jasmine is a perfect example of an older sister. Nosy, overbearing, all in your business, smarty-pants sister. I connect most with Jazz, since I do the same with my little brother. She's annoying at times but what is family for huh? XD -Vlad, Vlad, Vlad, VLAD! They did you wrong my wonderful antagonist. They did you wrong indeed. The prefect example of a villain; Driven by love, jealousy and revenge. Vlad is a character who is still a mystery, even when the show is already over. Blasted Hartman! Doing him in at the end of 3rd season. That was a big middle finger to the face. VLAD LIVES ON!
3) As you will notice from this point on I'll be focusing on those three chosen as my pawns~ My OTPs, however just three of them. I don't mind any pair as long it is done... practically... AND NO HARTMAN! I'LL NEVER SUCCUMB TO THE WAY YOU 'SLAPPED' AMETHYST OCEAN TOGETHER. Very well let's carry on: - Grey Ghost~ IT'S CANON WEATHER YOU LIKE IT OR NOT? Danny DID have a crush on Valerie and vice versa. He knew the danger of dating her, but he took the chance. Sure blame it on Technus, but I bet even without Technus it would have still been. Valerie wanted to give up ghost hunting, but once again Danny screws that over. She has "unfinished business" and doesn't want to get "Fenton" involved or hurt, she tells him no. Danny being afraid to tell her the truth, let's her walk away. However with Danny... I wouldn't tell her either.. lols -Classic Cliché, is the title I'm calling them till there is a fanbased agreed one. They're so cute, total bookworm pairing thing I've pick up by favorite artwork from . You converted me, Happy? To the point where I'm making a Phancomic ( on the 2nd chapter of it, posting it after that one is done~) -POMPOUS PEP. POMPOUS FAWKING PEP. Don't get me started on this. I FREAKING LOVELOVELOVELOVELOVE POMPOUS PEP... I'm sick in the head like that, AND I LOVE IT. I seriously love Nimrod-The-writer and SetsunaNoroi's fic, haven't read any? GO, YOU'RE MISSING OUT ON LIFE! I can't express how much I love pompous pep, I just do.
4) I don't necessarily dislike these choices, but I have my reasons: -Amethyst Ocean. I don't like how everyone in the show thinks they're so prefect for each other. I mean they are, but it's like one of those ‘you expect them to be so prefect it fucks them over.’ I can't see them making it passed their teens. Their friendship is beautiful though. I can see them growing old together but as friends, not as lovers. -Silly Hunter. I dislike this pairing actually. It will be the first and last time I'll draw them, unless someone commissioned me to do so. I don't like this pairing at all. Valerie used Tucker, and Tucker liked her cause she was "popular". -I love you Nicolai Technus but no. BELT UP, WHY DON'T YOU! That voice of yours makes me cringe. The voice actor's voice is amazing for Jack and the Box Ghost but not for Technus. However I enjoy all of Technus's episodes, IRONY!
5)BOOK1:"I'm not Stupid! Ghost and Time Travel is not real"- Lil' Valerie "Stay long enough and I'll prove to you it is."- Big Danny "...sure" lil' Valerie replies. BOOK2: Brain died, and I did this last… so there Danny in a dress~ 6) LIKE A BOSS!~ Dan should have tried to take over the world in the last season damnit! How badass would it had been if Phantom and Plasmius had to work together, discover a new technique to use together, and save the world. That would be so boss. 7) Some Cheesy Amethyst Ocean thing I made... Somewhere in the Evil Sam episode? I'm trying to pretend the 3rd season doesn't exist and the show is just in hiatus...*sigh* if only... I actaully did this one last… was too lazy to think of anything… bummer
8) More Classic Cliché goin' on! Couldn't help it, they're just too cute. “I’LL FREEZE!"- Danny “Nonsense! Come! I'll warm you, My Boy~"- Vlad "I'D RATHER FREEZE"-Danny. I love making them argue. It’s too much fun to pass up!
8) You did mention all three of their names... and I had this moment within the phandom when I was crossbreeding Vocaloid and Danny Phantom. If you don't know Vocaloid, you're missing out. For those who don't know of Visual Kei or Vocaloid, there’s a Maid Desiree in the right corner for you. YOUR WISH IS HER COMMAND!
9) Nearing the End I pick Grey Ghost and Pompous Pep for this question. I didn't use Classic Cliché because of the comic I'm making is based on this main topic, and I don't want to spoil anything for it. -Valerie is our Romeo and Danny our Juliet. Valerie picking up Danny in bridal style fits just as, but not quite as well, as Pompous Pep. -Pompous Pep. I felt like screwing with Danny and Vlad. Juliet, not being so happy of his situation, takes it out on Romeo. Romeo trying to be romantic by climbing the failed drawn vines on the balcony takes a bucket to the face.
10) NO TAGS, ONLY DEATH OF MEME SLAVE; LAINEI! Danny is freed... for now " I'M FREE! NO MORE DRESSES!"- Danny "...Not for long... hehe"-Vlad
DONE RANTING NOW, THANKS FOR READING OR NOT FOR READING, TA!~
