[[ Silent Elegy]]
* Recommended by Tropers/{{Donteatacowman}}.
* ''Pairings'': None.
* Wrote an entire ''series'' of 21 fanfics all sticking to their own canon. Essentially another season of DP with a twist. She explores Danny's reactions to some OC villains and anti-heroes, various plots with new settings (including a chilling crossover with ''VideoGame/TheSuffering''), and some clever MarySue parodies. Her last few fics are a little harder to read, but her intricacies, attention to detail, vivid storytelling, and creativity makes her work a pleasure to read.

[[ Cordria]]
* Recommended by Tropers/{{Donteatacowman}}, {{@/JackieDanielStark}}, {{@/sabros413}}, {{@/Blu Fox}}, {{@/Magic246222}}, alzbeta, {{@/sphinxie}}
* ''Pairings'': Various.
* An awesome writer with an immensely wide range of genres under her belt, Cordria is one of most popular ''WesternAnimation/DannyPhantom'' fanfic writers there is, a title that is very well-deserved.
** Seconded by Tropers/Blu Fox. Seriously, Cori is one of the best DP writers, and she makes an awesome beta-reader. By far, one of her most popular works is [[ Pits]], a thrilling story of Danny getting himself into a scheme of Walker's that's ''much'' worse [[NightmareFuel than you think.]] It explores Danny's emotional fragility and despair- you'll be in tears for him all the way through.
** Thirded by Tropers/Magic246222. I've been reading her work for years, and all she ever does is get better. She can write angst (oh god, her angst), fluff, horror, humor, gen, romance, dark, anything. She doesn't update as often as she used to, but the reason behind that is that she works really hard on her chapters, and when they do get posted they are totally worth the wait.

[[ Aaron12]]
* Recommended by @/{{Eddy1215}}, @/{{EeveeMistress}}
* ''Pairings'': Danny and Sam
* One of few writers who have captured the essence of the series. He has created a series of stories that take place following the GrandFinale called the ''FanFic/FacingTheFutureSeries''. Fans will truly enjoy how he handles Danny and Sam's RelationshipUpgrade following the end. Among the many plotlines he's brought into play, he has done something entirely unique with Sam, which makes her more than just Danny's new girlfriend, but also [[spoiler: his new partner]]. Many readers agree that this would be how the fourth season should've worked.

[[ MyAibou]]
* Recommended by Masterbow, alzbeta
* ''Pairings'': Danny & Sam, Tucker and Val.
* A great writer that has written a number of stories on the relationship between Danny and Sam. She has also written several novel length stories that perfectly continues the Danny Phantom story. Best read in this order [[ Tales from the Phantom Planet]], [[ Infinite Potential]], [[ Weight of the World]], [[ Ghosts in the Closet]], [[ Alibi]] (companion story to "Ghosts in the Closet").

[[ PlotQueeen]]
* Recommended by Tropers/{{Edokage}}.
* ''Pairings'': Various, but usually Danny & Sam.
* Made a lot of stories on as 'Chaos Dragon' before moving to Website/ArchiveOfOurOwn (mostly one shots). Generally makes good quality stories.

[[ Ellen Brand]]
* Recommended by prussianredknight
* Pairings: None
* A wonderful mix of characters' introspective monologues, poetry, mythology, psychoanalysis, and the best OC I've ever had the pleasure of reading (Cade Maboroshi, school psychologist and ex-police profiler). The fics are mostly one-shots with some short chapter fics, but they're deep, compelling, and have spot-on characterization that lends itself to multiple re-reads. Also has crossover fics with [[ Detective Conan]] and [[ Magic Kaito]].

[[folder:General Fics]]

''Stories focused on the family and the friendly relationships of the cast. Plot-focused stories or light day-in-the-life stories. Pretty much anything that isn't focused on romance.''

''[[Fanfic/AdoptionNightmare Adoption Nightmare]]''
* Recommended by Tropers
* ''Link'':
* ''Status'': Ongoing
* ''Synopsis'': Brianna Wallace is an orphan who gets adopted by the Fentons. She has many doubts that linger from her past, making her seem a bit cold and a bit of an arsehole. It doesn't help when Skulker makes her life go upside down and making her have to learn things like trust, opening up completely, and how to interact appropriately.
* ''Comments'':

''[[ Danny Fenton's Day Off]]'' by ''[[ Lilacspectacles]]''
* Recommended by Tropers/{{HypnoticWhere}}
* ''Status'': Completed
* ''Synopsis'': For as much crime half ghost teen Danny Fenton has defeated, can he fight off a nasty fever?
* ''Comments'': A sick fic that really hits you in the feels. It's well written and absolutely oozes the trade mark Danny Fenton sarcasm.

''[[ The Soul Sepulcher]]'' by Sholay
* Recommended by Tropers/{{Sweece}}
* ''Status'': Dormant
* ''Synopsis'': Something dark is stirring in Amity. It begins with a strange ghost attack on the museum; soon Danny's problems are multiplying faster than he can handle: haywire powers, murder, school, Vlad... Now Clockwork arrives bearing a mysterious glowing stone…
* ''Comments'': A well written and engaging story though the author does not update regularly.
[=[[reviews:The Soul Sepulcher]]=]

''[[ One Hit]]'' by SilverRaven16
* Recommended by Tropers/CMRRosa
* ''Status'': Dormant
* ''Synopsis'': Dash Baxter never thought that he'd one day be standing in front of a judge in court, being tried for a murder he didn't mean to cause. One hit, was all it took. One act taken too far. And now, Danny Fenton's blood was on his hands because of the jocks he used to call his friends. He's taken a human life away. He pleas for his innocence. But, will anyone bother to listen?
* ''Comments'': This story is for haters of Dash Baxter the guy with no redeeming qualities in my opinion, it a great story but sadly the price for Dash getting what he deserved is Danny death.

''[[ My Grandfather's Ghost]]'' by Alex Schira
* Recommended by Tropers/{{Anthiens}}
* ''Status'': Dead
* ''Synopsis'': Danny died when his son was four years old. Many years later, his (non-powered) son and twin granddaughters are sell-outs, and no ghosts have been seen for many years. His grandson Alan, an ex-boxer, doesn't buy it at all until he becomes a halfa himself by accident. Now, ghosts mistake him for Danny, and a still-living Vlad is digging around.
* ''Comments'': Much love for boxing and detective work. This work is a far cry from the usual "next generation" stories and has dry wit to match its originality. '''Highly''' recommended. Most unfortunately a DeadFic.
[=[[reviews:My GrandfathersGhost]]=]

''[[ Disclosures]]'' by Nonny The Anon One
* Recommended by Tropers/{{Assassin}}
* ''Status'': Complete
* ''Synopsis'': Danny is critically injured in a fight with Valerie, his secret is out, and now as he hovers between life and death, the people in his life reflect on their fear of losing him, while devising a plot to save him, with each chapter alternating in 1st person POV.
* ''Comments'': This is very much a {{Tearjerker}}. So please get ready to get water every few chapters. All the characters act very real, with each perspective added a new depth and a unique emotional response to the events which progressed throughout the story. Very well written and it fleshes out the characters considerably, while still somewhat maintaining their original personalities.
** Please enter into this fic with the understanding that it is a character, not plot driven concept fic.

''[[ Anathema]]'' by Firefury Amahira
* Recommended by Tropers/{{Anthiens}}
* ''Status'': Complete
* ''Synopsis'': The story of The Ultimate Enemy from the mouth of the monster himself.
* ''Comments'': Connecting a number of missing pieces and unwritten history, this is first of a ''quartology'', no joke. Most notably, it touches on why Dan has such an interest in killing Valerie and his misadventures in the Ghost Zone and attacks on Amity Park. Even more notable is the other three works that accompany it, which include Valerie's story, a story that focuses on the psychological implications that make up Dan and Dan being returned to his own time. Has influenced {{fanon}} as well.

''[[ Boredom]]'' by Baronofbeefdip
* Recommended by Tropers/{{Anthiens}}
* ''Status'': Complete
* ''Synopsis'': Vlad is playing host to other villains from the show... and it's driving him insane.
* ''Comments'': How long would it take for villains to get bored, anyway? Absolutely hilarious.

''[[ Smokescreen]]'' by Nylah
* Recommended by Tropers/{{Anthiens}}, pisoprano
* ''Status'': Complete
* ''Synopsis'': The hero having amnesia is totally overdone... but what if everything only ''seems'' to be normal? After a concussion, Danny's having problems remembering the oddest things... only that's not what is wrong. His powers are going weird the more he uses them... and so, a visit to Vlad finds something far worse than a concussion going on.
* ''Comments'': ParanoiaFuel. Who's to say that you aren't you, but somebody else? It also has a real world scientific explanation for Dani being a girl.
** Tropers/GracieGeek - Seconded. I read it in one sitting. The ending felt a little rushed, but otherwise [[{{Tearjerker}} tear-jerking]]. What I liked best is that the main character [[spoiler:felt like the Danny Fenton we know, but at the same time, felt like a different person]].
** Tropers/sabros413 - Thirded. The ending is indeed ''very'' rushed and could've been far better if more time was put into it, but nevertheless it's great plot and high suspense make up for it.

''[[ Seizure]]'' by Squirrel holding a bazooka
* Recommended by Tropers/{{AoibheannKat}}
* ''Status'': Complete
* ''Synopsis'': An FBI raid on Vlad's place turns up many surprises, one of them being Danny's "cousin". But little does Danny know that his clone will soon be enrolled in school with him. Chaos ensues.
* ''Comments'': The updating it a bit slow, but the wait is worth it. Vlad has made many more clones of Danny than originally thought, and a new governments sector wants to use that to their advantage.

''[[ Truth's Declared]]'' by RENTlover135
* Recommended by Jeanie
* ''Status'': Complete
* ''Synopsis'': It started as a simple school field trip. But after an accident, six teens are left alone in the Fenton RV. Danny is accidently given truth serum, and what began as a fun game, blossomed into a fullrage war.
* ''Comments'': What happens when our heroes get into a car crash going to Washington for a field-trip? With Jazz driving, it isn't as fun. And what's worse is that Paulina, Dash, and Valerie are along for the ride as well. But when our favorite hero accidentally passes out and they give him something to drink, it turns out to be truth serum.
** I checked out the fic, but while the synopsis sounds good on paper, it has a lot of spelling and formatting errors that need correcting. Maybe it has good stuff later on, but you'd really have to bear with it. And that's not mentioning the fact that this TV Tropes entry was originally poorly formatted itself...

''[[ The Ultimate Reality Clash]]'' by Major144
* Recommended by Tropers/{{rockysavannah}}
* ''Status'': Complete
* ''Synopsis'': After the events of Phantom Planet, Dan (Dark Danny) is freed from his prison and vows revenge on Danny and his friends. To make matters worse, Dan has the Reality Gauntlet. Now, Danny and his friends must stop Dan from killing them and destroying reality.
* ''Comments'': This is an amazing fanfic. It's written like an unofficial fourth season and gives some of the one-off villains from Season 3 do something useful. It has some well-written fight scenes and the chapters are written as halves of an episode. Although the writer does pull some things out of thin air, like Clockwork being in a group of a Ghosts that control abstract concepts (space, chaos, order). Also, [[spoiler: some major characters are killed off.]] Overall, this is a great continuation to the show after the series finale.

''[[ Powerless]]'' by PixieGirl13
* ''Status'': Complete
* Recommended by Tropers/{{Anthiens}}, Tropers/{{Donteatacowman}}, @/JBlaze, Tropers/{{Zalein}}, Tropers/JackieDanielStark
* ''Synopsis'': Vlad kidnaps Danny away from Amity Park, puts a watch that renders Danny powerless on him, and drags him to Japan to find out what's behind a golem that's killing people.
* ''Comments'': Danny learns forethought and starts leaving his [[UnwittingPawn Xanatos Sucker-dom]] behind. He even sets up a little gambit against Vlad... and wins--sort of. He's still stuck with Vlad.
** Seconded by @/JBlaze: the author really knows how to spin a plot, while introducing well-developed [=OCs=] that do not delve into MarySue territory.
** @/CaptainPlanette: Now has a sequel called [[ Incommunicado]]!
*** JackieDanielStark: And the sequel is as totally awesome as the first.

''[[ A Secret Uncovered]]'' by Darth Frodo
* Recommended by Tropers/MichaelJJ
* ''Status'': Dormant
* ''Synopsis'': Thanks to a snooping reporter, Danny's secret is out. Now, he has to deal with being the center of attention, mending a bridge with Valerie, and tracking down the ghost that sold him out.
* ''Comments'': A plot used rather often, Darth Frodo takes it and turns it into a truly great fic. The first time through I read it all in one night, very excellent. Currently ongoing, takes place instead of Reality Trip.

''[[ Plasmius: The Orgins of Vlad!]]'' by wafische
* Recommended by Tropers/MichaelJJ
* ''Status'': Complete
* ''Synopsis'': The full story of Vlad, from the accident that gave him his powers to his first contact with Danny.
* ''Comments'': Very well written, with little contradiction. Written before season three, so none of the CharacterDerailment Vlad from that season. Complete.
[=[[reviews:Plasmius: The Origins of Vlad!]]=]

''[[ Mars]]'' by Jade Rabbyt (character death)
* Recommended by Tropers/CaptainPlanette
* ''Status'': Dead
* ''Synopsis'': After an explosive disaster, Danny finds himself alone. Old dreams mingle with new obsessions, drawing him inexplicably skyward.
* ''Comments'': The way Danny finds himself coping after Sam and Tucker have died is the most realistic reaction I have ever seen in fanfiction. Life goes on for Danny, and everyone else, and his life takes a detour that is certainly interesting. A shame it was [[DeadFic never continued]], but what ''is'' there is stunning.

''[[ The Return of Dani Phantom]]'' by R.tistiC
* Recommended by Tropers/{{Jcogginsa}}
* ''Status'': Complete

''[[ Ghosts in the Closet]]'' by [[ MyAibou]]
* Recommended by Tropers/{{Gorsecloud}}, Ellawenna, Masterbow, alzbeta
* ''Status'': Complete
* ''Pairings:'' Danny/Sam, Tucker/Valerie, Jazz/OC
* ''Synopsis:'' It's Christmas Eve, nearly ten years after the events of Phantom Planet, and all's not well. Danny's gone, Sam's expecting, and the Guys in White and their supporters are on the rampage. Danny's family and friends are divided in more ways than one, and it's taking its toll on everyone. Bit by bit, this story reveals pieces of the puzzle that answer one simple question: "What happened?" Then it drives forward to it's conclusion to answer a second: "What will happen?"
* ''Comments:'' Another one of the best pieces I've ever read. Myaibou, more than any author I've yet seen in the fandom, writes an intriguing scenario for what happens after Phantom Planet, and possibly one of the most accurate ones if Danny Phantom were real - with a country as likely to persecute a savior of the planet as thank him, all because he's different. The reality with which she writes the struggles and challenges of trying to mount a political campaign in the face of adversity (as well as several other problems that Danny's disappearance causes) is incredible, and when Myaibou added an original character to the mix, he integrated himself into the fold '''very''' nicely. This Troper found herself watery-eyed one moment, covering her mouth with laughter the next, then moments later gasping with shock at an unexpected revelation. And the epilogue is cute for its own sake. There's something about [[CrowningMomentofHeartwarming a floating drool-covered green teething ring]] that just makes you want to say "d'aww." Major recommendations, along with Myaibou's other Danny Phantom stories.
** Seconded, if you like Danny Phantom you Need to read this story it is as simple as that.
** Needs its own trope page
** Part of a series of stories. See Authors section above

''[[ Bloody Childhood]]'' by WTFWonder
* Recommended by Tropers/{{Anthiens}}
* ''Status'': Dead
* ''Synopsis'': While chasing Spectra, Danny gets stuck in another world and meets the [[Manga/{{Hellsing}} No-Life King]]... in the eighties and gets stuck there.
* ''Comments'': A messed up, sadly deadfic after four chapters. What is is there is rather excellent.

''[[ Deathday Revelations]]'' by Angel Baby1
* Recommended by Tropers/{{Donteatacowman}}, Tropers/{{AoibheannKat}}
* ''Status'': Complete
* ''Synopsis'': Just shy of his second year, Danny learns of a custom meant to honor the day each ghost first entered the next world. [[HilarityEnsues Now the great Danny Phantom must face a throng of well meaning ghosts and somehow survive their gifts with his secret and sanity intact.]]
* ''Comments'': A hilarious fic that involves almost every ''DP'' villain, all bursting in at inopportune times to bestow Danny with ghostly presents. It has its serious moments, too, but is mostly just a fun read.
[=[[reviews:Deathday Revelations]]=]

''[[ Lost]]'' by Nylah
* Recommended by Tropers/{{Donteatacowman}}
* ''Status'': Dead
* ''Synopsis'': Danny wakes up in an abandoned cabin with no memory of how he got there, or anything at all for that matter. He finds his emotions constantly in turmoil as he struggles to survive in the slums of Amity Park. When he's eventually claimed by a strange family called the Fentons, who tell him that he is the only survivor of a camping trip with Tucker Foley and Sam Manson gone awry, Danny struggles with guilt, alcohol addiction, and his own mental darkness.
* ''Comments'': An astounding fic. Danny is plagued by his own hero complex right and left, and even he doesn't know if he'll be able to save his former friends this time.
** Tropers/GracieGeek: So, ''SO'' seconded! This author knows how to write some truly great psychological nightmare fuel - Danny's breakdown is written very realistically, and some parts are so heartbreakingly ''hard'' to read, but I can't put it down. The best ''DP'' fanfic I've read, period.

''[[ How to Piss Off Danny Fenton]]'' by libraluvr
* Recommended by LivingError
* ''Status'': Complete
* ''Synopsis'': Dash does everything in his power to piss off Danny to prove that Danny couldn't beat him up no matter how mad he was. Big mistake.
* ''Comments'': The most well written and funniest 'Dash crosses the line so Danny puts him in his place' story I have ever read. The sequel [[ How to Avoid Getting Suspended]] is also amazing and deserves notice.

''[[ Teh Soopr Gost Gurl]]'' by Lady-Valiant and Smexy Phantom
* Recommended by Tropers/VioletAura1009
* ''Status'': Dead
* ''Synopsis'': Danny Phantom and friends are about to face their greatest challenge so far...a Mary Sue fanfic written by the insufferable Smexy Phantom!
* ''Comments'': The {{Mary Sue}} fic is horrible and contrasts well with the author's good sense of humor and spot-on characterization. It's absolutely hilarious, and the author makes it a very interactive experience by letting fans send flames to 'Smexy Phantom'. Highly recommended. The author's updates are a bit slow, but it's well worth the wait.
** Unfortunately, this appears to be a deadfic.
[=[[reviews:Teh Soopr Gost Gurl]]=]

''[[ Floursack]]'' by[[ Yami-chan and Unrealistic]]
* Recommended by Tropers/JackieDanielStark
* ''Status'': Complete
* ''Synopsis'': Lilith has lived in the Ghost Zone for most of her life. She barely remembers her mother and never knew her father. Now fourteen years old, things she thought were fact begin to question themselves and life becomes decidedly more complicated.
* ''Comments'': This is by far the best OC fanfic I have read. Despite the fact that Danny's missing, you find yourself wanting to read on and on. [[spoiler: Plus, the very fact that Danny is not seen for a third of the story makes it even better when he actually does.]] All of the characters are very sweet, even Dash's son. One thing I didn't like as much as the rest of the story was the one super long flashback scene interrupts the action scene ''at its very peak''. Kind of annoying and unnecessary, in my opinion.

''[[ The Luckiest Girl in the World]]'' by imekitty.
* Recommended by Tropers/{{Frank 15}}
* ''Status'': Complete
* ''Synopsis:'' Paulina is in love with the Ghost Boy, and has realized that Danny, Tucker, and Sam seem to know the Ghost Boy. A mischievous genie ghost grants her the opportunity to switch lives with Sam for a week, and maybe learn something about the Ghost Boy, and about herself.
* ''Commments:'' It's all about Paulina, her selfishness, and some growth, too. Or Paulina in Sam's life for a week, at least. It's great at showing her growth, though, when she's forced to be nice to "losers" Danny and Tucker, to find out information about Danny Phantom, though she may not need to pretend forever....

''[[ Domination]]'' by Nimrod the Writer
* Recommended by Tropers/{{lizoftheinfinite}} {{@/Anthiens}}
* ''Status'': Dormant
* ''Pairings'': Vlad/Danny [[StalkerWithaCrush (sort of . . . )]] but since this is not exactly the main focus, I'm putting it under General Fics.
* ''Synopsis'': Post PP. Vlad doesn't lose, especially to a giant rock. With the disasteriod gone and the world in his clutches, he's free to do what ever he wants. Unfortunately for the Fentons, what ever he wants usually doesn't work out in their favor. Pompous Pep! [[RapeasDrama (Horribly one-sided Pompous Pep at that).]]
* ''Comments'': liz: This is one of the stories that I can read over and over again. It's angsty, terrifying, and strangely in-character. The characters grow and develop as the plot moves forward. It's sort of a fix-it fic for the stupidity of the third season, returning Vlad to his previous badassery. [[BloodierAndGorier It]] [[DarkerandEdgier is]] [[FoeYay rated]] [[RapeasDrama M]] [[HotterandSexier for]] [[NightmareFuel a very good reason]]. With a touch of [[LaResistance La Resistance]] and [[RoyalsWhoActuallyDoSomething Royals Who Actually Do Something]] the fic draws the reader in and reveals a darker version of Danny Phantom.
** Oh boy, is the top comment ever so deserved and seconded by Anth. Really, many of her stories are worth a read, particularly the one-shots.

''[[ A Ghostly Field Trip]]'' by A Writer's Right to Write
* Recommended by Tropers/{{Tropereader4200}}
* ''Status'': Dormant
* ''Synopsis'': When a field trip is planned to the Ghost Zone by the mayor, Team Phantom has no choice but to go along with it. But, the trip and their secrets aren't the only thing to be concerned about when something is going on in the Human Zone.
* ''Comments'': An ongoing fic that updates regularly and it takes everything to a Darker and Edgier feel. The action can only be described in one word: Epic. It takes the typical field trip fic and cranks everything up to keep you on the edge of the seat. Overall, it's a great read and keeps going!

''[[ The Little Ghost Boy]]'' by Extant
* Recommended by Tropers/{{KaoruSailorZ}}
* ''Status'': Dead
* ''Synopsis'': Began as a fusion of DP and The Little Mermaid, but has totally wandered off into original plot. AU, obviously. DxS.
* ''Comments'': A wonderful fanfiction that fuses The Little Mermaid and DP. Don't take it the wrong way. It takes TLM to a political and theological level. The philosophy is seemlessly woven into the story and gives it a coming-of-age feel to it. A {{Darkfic}} which the author wants and the lines from the movie just fits. I highly recommend it.

''[[ Isolated]]'' by Lynse

''[[ Complications]], [[ Exceptions]] and [[ Hopes]]'' by Hidden Author
* Recommended by Tropers/{{zara2148}}
* ''Status'': Complete
* ''Synopsis'': Danny Fenton's already complicated life is about to get even worse. First, his powers are going through a rapid increase, leaving him constantly fighting for control. Next, an old "ghostly" friend shows up, demanding he attend an audience before the Ghost Council. Then, to top things off, the mayor issues a fifty thousand dollar bounty, payable to the first person to capture the infamous ghost-boy. Between evil puberty, ghost politics, and his parents' constant patrols, will Danny survive with secret and sanity intact?
* ''Comments'': Starting off from the end of season 2, this trilogy brillantly deals with Danny's evergrowing powers and the effect it is having on himself and those around him. It is worth reading alone for the author's ''extremely'' well-written take on Clockwork, and his and Danny's developing friendship. There is also a fourth fic, however it has not been updated in almost 4 years - comments have basically devolved into pleas for the author to come back.

''[[ Phantom of Truth]]'' by Haiju
* Recommended by Tropers/{{KuraBaee}}, pisoprano
* ''Status'': Complete
* ''Synopsis'': Locked away in a secret government lab with Phantom as her subject, nothing stands between Maddie and the truth... except, perhaps, herself.
* ''Comments'': This fic is amazingly well-written, engaging, realistic and thought-provoking, told from the POV of Maddie Fenton as she is given the task to unravel the mystery that is 'Danny Phantom'. Haiju has managed to implement real scientific evaluations and very specific, 'factual' information as to both the physical and psychological makeup of ghosts. But wait; before you go thinking that this is all scientific drivel, there is a fair amount of dark humor and thought-provoking observations here. There is also plenty of angst on the part of Danny, but it is realistically portrayed and he doesn't fail to remain his upbeat, snarky self ... most of the time. Yes, Haiju has put plenty of thought into this one.
** Great googly moogly, that was amazing. And horrible. But in a good way. Go read it.

Everyone but Danny thought it was bad luck when they became ship-wrecked on an island in the middle of nowhere. No one but Danny fully understood the dangers lurking in the trees. No one but Danny knew how much danger they were all in so far from home.

(I try my best to type the story as if it was part of the canon (original) episodes; with some minor twists.)

''[[ One More Secret]]'' by DemonKittyAngel

''[[ C'est la Vie]]'' by KeyBella
* Recommended by Tropers/{{sanserif}}
* ''Status'': Complete
* ''Sypnosis'': AU. Samantha Manson woke up with twelve hours until her wedding...only to wake up the morning of to discover that she was already married to some guy named Danny Fenton, who was definitely NOT her fiancé. Oh...crap. Her mother was going to kill her.
* ''Pairings'': Danny/Sam
* ''Comments'': This troper is surprised that this story has yet to make it to the list. Besides having excellent language, it also has a refreshing plot with it's own entertaining moments, bringing life to the characters, even side characters such as Sam's mother. Some OCs were created, but it's fine because they were been brought to life by good writing and the fact that they were completely necessary to the plot. All-in-all a must-read for any Danny/Sam shipper who enjoys a chick flick. Made all the more entertaining with [[spoiler: the fact that Danny is Danny Phantom, but since Sam is left in the dark and since this is told from Sam's POV, it isn't explicitly stated. It's amusing, though.]]
** Also, while the ending is well done, there are still questions left unanswered and enough space for a potential sequel. The reader is left with questions like, [[spoiler: "Will Sam discover Danny's secret?" "How will she react if she does?"]] and the curiosity to watch them grow into a deeper relationship. Leaves us craving for more, but nonetheless satisfying.

''[[FanFic/TheCrack The Crack Series]]'' by Tavalya Ra (slash, [[MisterSeahorse mpreg]])
* Recommended by Tropers/NeoYi, {{@/Anthiens}}
* ''Status'': Complete
* ''Pairings'': Vlad/Danny (so it's yaoi)
* ''Synopsis'': A crushing tale of a consequence Danny (unintentionally) inflicts on Vlad that alters the nature of their relationship. Through the years, the two struggle with that incident and its heavy repercussions while developing a dysfunctional romance with one another.
* ''Comments'': This synopsis does not do it justice; the story is far more complicated then that. It's split in five arcs and is a ''whooping'' 102 chapters, but only the first two arcs (mostly) are online. You must ask the original writer for the rest. '''VERY''' worth it. If you can get past the fact that it IS both [[MisterSeahorse Mpreg]] and [[NotSafeForWork '''not''' worksafe]] during certain points (it's rated "R", as a fair warning), you'll get an enticing tale that takes the typical pairing between Vlad and Danny and twists them in ways you'd never expect.
** Anthiens: {{Deconstruction}} of a crack pairing done dramatically is rare. Although the first story is quite excellent, it gets consistently better (in spite of what the writer claims). Also, the supplement stories can be hilarious, even if a little confusing and disjointed at times if you don't read the Live Journal entries.
** @/JBlaze: Seconded, although [[EvenTheDogIsAshamed I don't know if I should put my name next to this rec]]. Reading this was a total BileFascination, I admit. The author managed to do 90% of things I hate to see in romance fics, and I still read the entire thing, plus all the sequels and spin-offs. The author is great at keeping interest and tension, even if the plot is made of pure unadulterated {{Squick}} nine times out of ten.

''[[ Time Tampering]]'' by Kimurasato

* ''Synopsis'': Danny accidentally gets thrown into the 80's and gets to know Vlad before the accident. Unfortunately, he's stuck there and ends up... well... ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin.
* ''Comments'': Somewhat known and written some time before, it contains cross dressing due to a bet. It's well written and finished, which some good old fics tend not to be. There's some cameos from two ghosts I was not expecting and it actually dodges some of the pitfalls of time travel fic.

* ''Comments'': The story is brilliantly thought out and executed, with everyone delightfully in-character and, of course, going to increasing lengths to keep this whole thing a secret under the adults' very noses. It picks up in the middle of the series, during the WakeUpGoToSchoolSaveTheWorld episodes - you know, they kind where it doesn't matter if you watch them in order. Updates are slow, but it's not DeadFic, and be forewarned: this fic very much deserves the M rating it has on

''[[ Just Five Minutes]]'' by [[ Elle Aitch]]

* ''Synopsis'': In an attempt to make money, Tucker and Danny decide to charge twenty bucks for a date with Danny Phantom. The last thing they expected, however, was for Valerie to take them up on their offer, or for her start falling for him. Slight AU. (Still in-progress.)
* ''Comments'': This is a character-driven fic that balances some comedy with fluff with a dose of angst. Whilst ultimately, the focus will be Danny/Val, the author has so far given five minutes in the spotlight (uh, literally) to Paulina, Dash and Kwan and actually treated them like human beings (shallow / slight jerky human beings, but nonetheless). It also addressed the Danny/Sam tension without playing Sam off as the jerk.

* ''Status'': Complete
* ''Synopsis'': A one-shot crossover with ''{{Series/CSI}}''. Something supernatural is killing people in Las Vegas... and it all seems to lead back to a fifteen year old runaway named Danny Fenton.
* ''Comments'': Even though this is a little bit of a long read, it breaths a little touch of reality into the Danny/Vlad situation. The characters have depth and the story is highly entertaining.
** Zalein: A couple of minor points were a bit strange, but I only thought to question those after months of going back to occasionally reread. This was definitely a fun read. It was my first exposure into the Danny Phantom world, and got me hooked.

''[[ The Gotham Phantom]]'' by CSIPhantom (AU, crossover)
* Recommended by Tropers/{{Anthiens}}, Tropers/{{AoibheannKat}}
* ''Status'': Complete
* ''Synopsis'': Another take off from "The Ultimate Enemy" where Clockwork never intervenes... and a friend of the Mansons take in Danny: Bruce Wayne, AKA Franchise/{{Batman}}! Poor Danny has no idea...
* ''Comments'': Poor Bruce and Alfred. Very in character. Even lampshades Bruce being a loner. There is now a sequel. There is ending fatigue however and Vlad fans will not be pleased at his fate.
** Dellanotte: I'll have to contest that "in character" comment. Danny's acting far too chipper for someone who practically lost his whole world in one fell swoop, and Bruce stops being a loner fairly quickly. For that matter, most of the League is far too quick to jump in and start treating him like a long-lost son. Overall, the character development moves far too quickly, but beyond that it's not a bad read.
** Boat loads of spelling and grammar mistakes. Maybe it gets better, later on, but just getting through the first three chapters was a pain.

''[[ HIVE Minded]]'' by Slayer Anderson
* Recommended by Tropers/{{Helltanz98}}
* ''Status'': Complete
* ''Pairings'': Danny/Jinx
* ''Synopsis'' Danny Fenton gets an acceptance notification from a school that he never applied to. I know what you're thinking…green ink, owls, and a castle, right? Sorry, not this time.
** ''Comments'': Seconded by @/{{IslaFahlia}}. Honestly, it's surprising that it took this long for this fic to get up here. There have been a couple of issues as far as updates, but the story and plot is well worth the wait. Absolutely nothing like your usual DP/TT crossover, it plays on issues that usually get downsized and overlooked in both shows, particularly an AU case of [[spoiler: Danny supposedly being the cause of Cyborg's namesake status and Cyborg hating him ever since]]. There are so many twists and turns, the fic is never boring to read and will almost certainly brighten your mood when you just happen to see an update.
*** Tropers/CaptainPlanette: I have to contest this a bit. The story has many interesting aspects in it that I do enjoy, but the fact that Danny slowly turns into a GodModeSue is grating on my nerves. He becomes too powerful too fast, and [[spoiler:the addition of permanent weather powers seemed rather unnecessary, aside from making him stronger and giving him an overdose of angst.]] In general, Danny's character and power development is just too much too fast for me.
** Third-ed by Elenor.
** Fourth-ed by JackieDanielStark. Yeah, Danny kinda turns into a Sue, but the author promises to touch on that issue when rewriting it. Apart from that, this fic strays from the typical 'Danny joins the Titans because of a ghost problem' thing and turns it into something more unexpected. Plus, it has one of the biggest action scenes that I have ever seen. Ever.

''[[ Danny's Inferno]]'' by Legend Maker.
* Recommended by Tropers/{{Chaltab}}
* ''Status'': Complete
* ''Synopsis'': A pyrokinetic ghost with the MOTHER of all misandrist streaks attacks Amity Park, and it's up to Danny and the team of superheroes who killed her to make things right.
* ''Comments'': Though it's a crossover with ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitans'', Danny is really the one who shines here. Sam is out of character in one chapter, but other than that the fic is basically a series of [[AwesomeMoments Crowning Moments of Awesome]]. Complete.
** @/JBlaze: Tentative second. Legend Maker's [=OC=] addition to the Teen Titans invokes many ''many'' shades of being a GaryStu. And while the author writes good action scenes, reading 100K+ words of nothing but DBZ-like one-up manship and {{Ass Pull}}s can be tedious. Still worth the read, but nothing really to write home about.
*** In all fairness, Legend Maker is one of those authors that improves with time, and the recent works in Teen Titans are excellent, lacking, as the author puts it, ''the longest fight scenes in the history of ever''. Also, the Stu/OC, Noel, tends to be reigned in a ''lot'' more in the purely Teen Titans fics, apparently he got a little out of control here...

''[[ Haunted Destiny]]'' by Funkatron
* Recommended by Tropers/{{Duder-Skanks}}
* ''Status'': Complete
* ''Synopsis'': A crossover with ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitans''. What if the main trio + Jazz had been exploring the Ghost Zone during [[TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt "The End"]]? Painful reminders of TUE flaring up, cut to nearly one year later as he's adopted a cold personality while trying to [[ItsNotYouItsMyEnemies protect]] his friends through shunning them. All this is disturbed, however, as Fenton Works recieves a call from Jump City's resident gaurdians...
* ''Comments'': One of the first fanfictions I ever read and still easily in my top 5, this story has great action and dialogue, keeps the feel of both shows, while at the same time realistically showing what would happen if a normal teenager had to go through these things.
** Has a sequel, but it's lack of updates keeps me cautious. The first still remains a definite read.
** Seconded by Tropers/JackieDanielStark Although Danny's behavior in the first parts of the story,[[spoiler: until Raven and Danny talk about their experiences]] was quite annoying, it was worth it. The later chapters are brimming with action and excitement and keeps you constantly on the edge of your seat. The action scenes could be comparable to [[ Danny's Inferno]], which is very nice, and plus, it feeds your inner sadist!

''[[ Mirrored]]'' by Lynse
* Recommended by pisoprano
* ''Status'': Complete
* ''Synopsis'': As a general rule, diving into unknown swirly vortexes in the Ghost Zone is a bad idea, but this was a time when Danny had no other real choice. Meanwhile, Jake thought he was through dealing with ghosts, but Rotwood, well, he's just getting started.
* ''Comments'': A well-done WesternAnimation/AmericanDragonJakeLong crossover with WesternAnimation/DannyPhantom. Possibly the ''only'' good crossover between those two shows out there. The characters were in-character, the plot was good, but what I really appreciated was how Lynse showed the parallels between Jake and Danny's lives.

''[[ Obsession]]'' by [[ The Struggling Warrior]]

* ''Synopsis'': "Danny Phantom has lost everything, including his purpose as a ghost. With no family or friends to anchor him, can he fight off his pain, solitude, and darkness as he struggles to come to terms with what a hero truly is?" AU for the ending of "The Ultimate Enemy" and before the start on the "Young Justice" series.
* ''Comments'': There are no real words to describe the amazingness of this story. Long chapters, lots of world-building, and just plain impressive work at meshing the two series together. And while the main focus is on Danny and ghosts, there are plenty of appearances by heroes and villians from the DC universe. A sequel set during the events of "Young Justice" has been started, [[ Absolution]].

* ''Comments'': I'm loving this so far. I had my reservations about the first chapter, but once it got halfway through the chapter and got some air under its wings I thought it worked wonderfully. The characters are fun and Danny adds an interesting new twist to the story. Assuming that things keep going the way they are, I expect that the author will be adding more and more elements from the Danny Phantom side of the story as the plot progresses.

* ''Status'': Dead
* ''Pairings'': Dark Danny/Danny
* ''Synopsis'': "Huh, I guess this makes me a sadist, a sociopath AND a narcissist." '''Not work safe'''!
* ''Comments'': Quite probably a StealthParody of {{shipping}} fics, this is an extremely well written, utterly in-character story about possibly the most disturbing ship. The thing to watch for here is the bits going on in the backround-Clockwork's gambit to eventually rescue Danny being interesting and the coolest origin of Spectra ever. It's '''extremely''' disturbing... but if you want to see the most horrific deconstruction of a pairing ever, this is your stop. It is not mutual, it is extremely horrifying to even Literature/AClockworkOrange levels and yet, it's really, really good. EvenTheDogIsAshamed by this fic.
** After reading this one about twice this reviewer would have to agree- this is a well written fic. Not perfect, mind you, but well written. A lot of the characters’ dialog feels very in-character, and the story can get to [[NightmareFuel crazy-high levels of terrifying]]. Even though this story is categorized as angst/romance, I would argue that it fits better as a horror story. An interesting question I’ve heard before is “Which is scarier- when an evil person [[StalkerWithACrush loves you]] or [[ArchEnemy hates you]]?” (though I wouldn't call Dark Danny's motivation love...) and this story seems to strongly argue for the former. WTF Wonder has an amazing grasp on the horror genre and I actually had a few nightmares after reading this. Not very many stories I’ve read have had that effect on me, and considering that I’m well versed in the true crime genre of writing ([[TakeOurWordForIt and consequently read about some really]] [[PrecisionFStrike fucked up shit]]) that’s quite an achievement. A good core of telling a horror story comes from disempowerment of the protagonist/s, and hoo boy, does this story not skim on that! Clockwork gets a good dose of it, but not as strong as Danny’s, and I best leave it at that lest I give away anything. The constant pop culture and brand name references might be annoying and/or distracting, though the music portion of it might make an interesting playlist for reading to. On another note there are some funny moments in the story as well, but such humor is mostly very surreal and dark, and, as well as relieving the tension, serves to underscore just how [[AccidentalPun screwed]] Danny is. If this kind of humor (or the horrifying implications you’d expect from such a pairing) isn’t your thing, then avoid this story. Otherwise, click on the link provided and prepare to sleep a little less soundly for the next few days.

''[[ Laughing Gas]]'' by CatalystOfTheSoul
* Recommended by Tropers/{{Donteatacowman}}
* ''Status'': Complete
* ''Synopsis'': Danny's feeling a bit nervous about his upcoming trip to the dentist. Scared? He should be.
* ''Comments'': Chilling and ironic, with quite a bit of suspense. As you read about the seemingly normal dentist visit, you get the eerie sense that something isn't quite right...

''[[ Mount Ivory]]'' by [=MoonrockBlink1772=]
* Recommended by Tropers/{{Dec}}
* ''Status'': Complete
* ''Synopsis'': Much to the GIW's disappointment, Danny's human half labels him as 'special' and prevents him from being given to them when he is exposed. But he still has to go somewhere, and ends up at the Mt. Ivory holding facility. Is his life over? You bet.
* ''Comments'': I've got two words: Holy Shit. DarkFic of the highest caliber. Pulls the feat off with cynicism and the frustrations of social inequality instead of heaping on the gore and angst, with just enough hope and sarcasm to not make it a complete downer to read. This type of stuff isn't my forte, but I need to give credit where credit is due -- this is an amazing fic, and it made me cry, it got me to vibrate in my chair in exitement, and it made me desperate for more all the way 'till the end. And for those of you wondering, yes, there actually ''is'' an ending, because this ain't no DeadFic.

''[[ Lab Rat]]'' by AnneriaWings
* Recommended by Pichu
* ''Status'': Complete
* ''Warnings'': Graphic gore scenes involving children, some mild cursing
* ''Synopsis'': The look on my parents' faces – eager, curious, somewhat hateful – wasn't exactly hard to give away their intentions. I knew what they were going to do to me even before Mom snapped on a pair of rubbery, white latex gloves.
* ''Comments'': Danny's parents have said they wanted to do unspeakable things to ghosts and in this story they get to do it. It's as morbid as it sounds. It's all portrayed in a rather realistic manner, though [[spoiler:I'm not sure if vivisections are as painless as that (not to say it wasn't terrible though)]]
* This fic has a sequel named [[ Wasteland]]. It may or may not be considered just as Tearjerking and angsty as its predecessor.
* It has a Tvtropes page [[Fanfic/LabRat now]].

''Stories where one fundamental aspect of the series is completely overhauled from its point of origin.''

''[[ The Phantom Reboot]]'' by Soulfulbard
* Recommended by Tropers/CMRRosa
* ''Status'': Ongoing
* ''Synopsis'': A re-imagining based on the original concept. Gadgets instead of ghost powers, and Danny and Sam share a psychic link. Add in a missing Jack and Maddie and Danny and Sam not meeting before the first episode and it's Danny Phantom like you've never seen it before.
* ''Comments'': A great re-imagining of the series base on the original concept.

''[[ Rise of Danny Phantom]]'' by JP-Rider
* Recommended by Tropers/CMRRosa
* ''Status'': Dormant
* ''Synopsis'': AU reimaginings- After his parents' disappearance and involving an accident that got his powers, Danny Phantom uses his powers to help Amitypark from criminals and ghosts. My take on Danny Phantom's origins in a darker tone.
[=[[reviews:Rise of Danny Phantom]]=]

''[[ Ms Manson's Problem Student]]'' by JP-Rider
* Recommended by Tropers/CMRRosa
* ''Status'': Dormant
* ''Synopsis'': AU- Danny Fenton was dealing with problems. School, Parents, teachers, bullies, ghosts, but when he heard about the new teacher, his life is turning into an interesting term.
[=[[reviews:Ms Manson's Problem Student]]=]

''[[ Cross my Heart and I'll Fight Back]]'' by Hellbreaker
* Recommended by JP-Rider
* ''Status'': Complete
* ''Synopsis'': One argument can change things for better or worse. What would have happened if Danny told Sam that she crossed a line before he did. Is this the end of a long friendship? An AU of Double Cross my Heart.
* ''Comments'': For those who hated how the episode "Double Cross my Heart" was handled, this fic is for you. The author has done well with the characters, such as how Danny broke off his friendship with Sam and Tucker after he pointed out how hypocritical Sam was for spying on him, and how Tucker is being selfish and jealous of Danny's powers. This fic is worth the read and has two sequels.
[=[[reviews:Cross my Heart and I'll Fight Back]]=]

''[[ Livin' Larger]]'' by bluemoonalto
* Recommended by Tropers/{{Anthiens}}
* ''Status'': Complete
* ''Synopsis'': A reimagining of Livin' Large. The Fentons have their house and everything in it bought for a very high price-but can that price be too high? Danny, suspicious and unhappy with their newfound riches, decides to investigate and finds a plot which he now must stop...
* ''Comments'': Do ''you'' think you could write better than the third season material? Well, Blue did and put the money where their mouth is-Livin' Large, with the aims of generally doing it better-increasing and deepening exchanges between main cast, changing the moral from "riches make Fentons jerks" to "money can't make them any happier than they already are" and to improve continuity. She succeeded, after a ''three year hiatus'' it is finished.

''[[ Checkmate]]'' by pearl84
* Recommended by {{@/CP}}, Tropers/{{Donteatacowman}}, Tropers/{{Anthiens}}, Hedgi
* ''Status'': Complete
* ''Synopsis'': Vlad once again takes upon himself to create a BatmanGambit, and for once... it works. He toys with Danny's mind, goes even further to get his WeCanRuleTogether speech in, and goes as far as to break Danny to get what he wants and make it easier to toy with Danny's mind. Several NotSoDifferent moments occur. And in the end, [[spoiler:Danny reluctantly leaves his home and heads off for Vlad's mansion.]]
* ''Comments'': ''Checkmate'' is written amazingly, with an original plot. The fanfiction is '''completed''' and has reached over 1 million words.
** {{@/Anthiens}}: The story is ''very'' long and arc based, with much ContemplateOurNavels and side stories that may or may not be liked. It gets better as it goes along and again, is ''very, very long''. The characterization is spot on.
** {{@/Canto Candidus}}: Sometimes it's pretty {{Wangst}}, and one of the worst cases of {{Boring Failure Hero}} I've ever seen for Danny, also Vlad can be seen wearing some [[DracoInLeatherPants very stylish leather pants]], the author herself is a pretty 'intense' Vlad fangirl so it's expected, also tried to read past chapter 40 but the three tropes mentioned before became too much for my WillingSuspensionOfDisbelief, it's a pretty 'love it, hate it' fic in my point of view. At least the writting is clean.
** @/JBlaze: Tentative disagree here. I got about 40k words in and lost interest. Part of the reason the fic is so long is because it delves frequently into [[ContemplateOurNavels navel contemplation]] and completely aimless sideplots that are really quite dull and lack tension.
** The Blood Sharpie: Also disagreeing a bit with the quality of the actual writing. Not the plot; it is cleverly done and well-thought-out - but I got about five chapters in a couldn't read it anymore. I may have been spoiled by people with betas, and it's ignorable, but it's still jarring to catch a small but important grammatical or spelling mistake every five or so sentences and be yanked out of the story. Good plot, but it could stand revising.
** Hedgi: On 17/04/2011, pearl84 went back and edited quite a bit- ''("I just cleaned up grammar and sentence flow, because every time I read this chapter, I cringed at how horribly it was written)''. I'm rather enjoying the ride now. A few parts do tend to be slow, and it is very, very long, but it's decent.
** Troper/{{sabros413}}: I have to disagree here. The fanfic is unnecessarily long-winded (''one '''million''' words'') and very self-indulgent. The side plots are distracting and rather dull. I can commend the plot, which is well-thought out, but even its excellent plot is shadowed by the amateur writing. If you're not a fan of fics that drag out (very much so, in this case), I wouldn't recommend it.

''[[ Phantom's Sketchbook]]''
* ''Status'': Complete
* Recommended by Tropers/{{Extraintrovert}}, Tropers/{{Zalein}}, Tropers/KaiserinKai, Tropers/{{Tannim}}, Tropers/{{LadySugarQuill}}, alzbeta
* ''Synopsis'': Mr. Lancer discovers Danny Phantom's sketchbook, and in the process learns some surprising things about his {{City Of Adventure}}'s resident protector.
* ''Comments'': Simply put, one of the most fantastic explorations of a minor character any fandom has ever produced. Seriously. Read it.
** Seconded by {{boomslangvenom}}. A really facinating look at what life is like for a chacter without ghost powers, ecto-weapons, or halfa friends.
** Thirded by {{Esoulix}}. Great Mr. Lancer characterization. They make it feel like Lancer is more than just the Supportive Teacher, and manage to tell you how people view Danny without being listing it off to make things easier.

''[[ Daniel Masters]]'' by Ryuuko1
* Recommended by Tropers/{{Anthiens}}, Tropers/{{Donteatacowman}}
* ''Status'': Complete
* ''Synopsis'': Danny's family died. Now, years later, Danny isn't a pure ghost, but Vlad's adopted son, and he isn't all that pure anymore. He then gets transported to a reality where Clockwork saved his family, and he finds out that he was sent there for a reason.
* ''Comments'': The writer does an excellent job in writing a more than slightly cracked up Danny-who-isn't-quite-Danny and getting it to make sense, which is really hard.
** Anthiens: The best moment comes when Daniel Masters comes face to face with a friendly from his timeline, and it comes off as hilarious as well as a MoralEventHorizon moment for Daniel. This troper found it [[MoralDissonance deliciously evil]]. How far he's fallen only gets more apparent from there. Ongoing.
** Stratagemini: The story is good. But it also deals with depression, suicide attempts and gets very dark, almost to the point of wangst. YMMV, but after one read through, I couldn't get through it again.

''[[ All's Well that Ends Well]]'' by Esme Phantom
* Recommended by Tropers/{{Anthiens}}
* ''Status'': Complete
* ''Synopsis'': When a field trip goes horribly wrong, Lancer becomes a ''halfa''.
* ''Comments'': This fic has single-handedly inspired {{fanon}} for many fans, and it's entertaining as hell to read. Lancer gets a rare, positive spotlight and is better for it.

''[[ Ticking]]'' by Shibby-One
* Recommended by Tropers/{{Anthiens}}
* ''Status'': Complete
* ''Synopsis'': What if Danny had merely been killed by the portal? Clockwork watches it unfold accompanied by the sounds of ticking.
* ''Comments'': Very poignant, very respectful, with a singular ray of hope.

''[[ Empyreal]]'' by Shibby-One
* Recommended By Tropers/BloodPlum
* ''Status'': Dormant
* ''Synopsis'': What if, instead of a human becoming a ghost, a ghost... became human?
* ''Comments'': Being told in first person, it's an absolutely brilliant twist on the series as Phantom tries to move through human life. It was declared a dead fic, but after a two year hiatus it twitched it's way back to life with an update.

''[[ Catalyst]]'' by DanPhantomCrush
* Recommended by {{@/Anthiens}}
* ''Status'': Dormant
* ''Synopsis'': Who is Clockwork? A friend to Danny, or a master manipulator? Sam makes a drastic sacrifice to preserve Danny's world but ultimately only puts off the inevitable. And no one escapes unchanged; her family, Danny's family, even Vlad.
* ''Comments'': Sam leaves Amity Park, convinced that it's for Danny's own good during Spring Break. The story does a good job with a number of plot elements, the best is how Vlad's character is handled. Though part of the story is a bit implausible [[spoiler: Phantom not being a MagnificentBastard? Really?]] but the writer just utterly sells it.
** Seconded. The author treats Dark Phantom [[spoiler: more as a version of Danny that got badly corrupted than as a completely different being,]] but this troper still found herself enjoying the story very much, especially after Chapter 24 or so.

''[[ Real Life]]'' by Cordria
* Recommended by @/JBlaze, Tropers/{{Zalein}}
* ''Status'': Dead
* ''Synopsis'': And what if it WAS real?
* ''Comments'': Cordria does an amazing job of twisting the original material until it hardly resembles the light-hearted show it was inspired by. A {{Darkfic}} of the best kind, quickly becoming {{Nightmare Fuel}} for this troper. The ghosts are actually ghostly, and the evil is actually terrifying. Danny's powers have some ghoulish implications, and how ghosts are tied to this realm is explored in gritty detail. Manages to go heavy on the {{Darker and Edgier}} without getting into {{Wangst}} or {{Narm}}. Highly recommended. Slow updating, but doesn't seem to be a {{deadfic}} yet.
** Seconded by Tropers/Magic246222. This story is truly amazing, proving once and for all ''WesternAnimation/{{Danny Phantom}}'' can not only be dark and depressing, but scary. Thinking about what Danny is and what he has to do to survive is {{Nightmare Fuel}} in and of itself, and Cordria only adds to it with amazingly creepy and incredibly real descriptions. The characters reactions are incredibly true and human reactions, ranging from denial to terror. Theres also [[ an]] [[ author's]] [[ noted]] [[ version]] [[ that]] [[ is]] [[ really]] [[ interesting]] [[ and]] [[ is]] [[ totally]] [[ worth]] [[ the]] [[ time]] [[ it]] [[ takes]] [[ to]] [[ read]] [[ it]]

''[[ Intangible Trust]]'' by DP-shrine-in-closet-girl
* Recommended by Tropers/CaptainPlanette
* ''Status'': Dormant
* ''Synopsis'': AU "You may not be afraid of me, but I am." Danny has just moved to Amity Park a year after gaining his powers. He's had to deal with his secret alone all this time. Can he let Sam and Tucker into his life? What happens when they find out the truth?
* ''Comments'': A very interesting look at the sort of person Danny would be if he didn't have Sam and Tucker to back him up throughout his early ghost adventures, and what would happen if he met them only after establishing himself as a hero. There are a few spelling and grammatical mistakes, but not enough to detract from the story. Also, it brings in the argument of "is ghost hunting ethical" now and then.
[=[[reviews:Intangible Trust]]=]

''[[ Puberty]]'' and ''[[ Hormones]]'' by GrinGrin
* Recommended by forgottengeist
* ''Status'': Complete
* ''Synopsis'': Two stories set in the same AU. To quote the author's synopsis for Puberty - "Life just got weird. Not bad-weird, just... weird." and Hormones - "This collection of drabbles is set in my Puberty 'verse and deals with the coming of age and it's various effects on Danny, his friends and his enemies." Hormones is done in the vein of a drabble-collection, but the various chapters are often linked through overreaching arcs.
* ''Comments'': It's certainly interesting, dealing with various changes to the DP-verse, both big and small. Making peace with various ghosts? Check. Exploring the various roles they play? Check. Someone figuring out Danny's secret? Check. A whole mess of new ideas and interesting takes on characters? Check, check and double check.

''[[ Estrelas]]'' by Shimegami-chan
* Recommended by fruitstripegum
* ''Status'': Complete
* ''Synopsis'': AU. Sam's attention is captured by a lonely ghost haunting her grandmother's attic...and discovering his secrets will take everything she has.
