     Royal Pain 
  • 0% Approval Rating: Aragon, whose subjects had only followed out of fear.
  • 100% Adoration Rating: Dora has gained this after becoming queen of her kingdom, mostly because she actually treats her subjects kindly.
  • Abusive Parents: Grimhilde has always treated poor Dora like dirt, believing her to be weak and inferior to her tyrant brother Aragon.
  • Accidental Marriage: Danny narrowly avoids this with Paulina after he saves her by pulling an "All Just a Dream" gambit to shake her off.
  • An Aesop: A true leader is one who cares about their people, fear and intimidation will not make anyone loyal to you, just fear you. In other words, a real leader is made by the people who follow them by choice, not tradition and intimidation.
  • And Now You Must Marry Me: Aragon kidnaps Paulina because he plans to marry her and make her his princess, though it's only out of desire for revenge against Danny.
  • Cowardly Lion: Winston, one of Dora's servants was one of the many that greatly feared Aragon and Grimhilde, but still puts his neck on the line to protect Dora and inspires the rest of the kingdom to do the same.
  • Engagement Challenge: Aragon and Danny's fight over Paulina, having a medieval tournament of sorts to determine whom she goes to.

  • The Dreaded: Grimhilde and Aragon… until the end where the citizens get fed up and turn against them.
  • Thinks Like a Romance Novel:: Paulina in spades. She thinks she is the princess in a fairy tale romance and the ghost boy is her knight in shining armor that she is destined to marry.
  • Loving a Shadow: Danny realizes that Paulina's feelings for him are this and thus he lets go of his crush on her.
  • Momma's Boy: Despite being a sexist tyrant, the only person Aragon shows any level of respect is towards his mother Grimhilde.
  • Mother Makes You King: Grimhilde to Aragon
  • Parental Favoritism: Grimhilde makes it obvious that she has nothing but disdain for Dora and openly favors Aragon, though it's only because she is secretly using him.
  • Princess Phase: Paulina seems to have shades of this.
  • Ship Sinking: Danny loses all interest in Paulina at the end of this story.
  • Skewed Priorities: Paulina has been kidnapped and is about to be forced to marry a tyrannical, sexist ghost prince and all she can think about is how the ghost boy is going to save her and they are going to be married and live happily ever after.
  • Womanchild: Paulina. In this fanfic, she acts like a spoiled nine year old rather then a teenager. She acts like she's a princess during her time as a captive and when Danny finally saves her, she acts like they really were going to get married, much to Danny's horror.

     Gender Defender 
  • Abhorrent Admirer: Dash to Danny's female alter ego "Danika", much to his/her immense chagrin.
  • An Aesop: It's wrong to punish an entire group/race for the actions of a few bad members. Also you must be careful about what methods you use in order to accomplish your goals, because regardless of how "noble" you think your goal is, you may end up hurting the very people you wish to help.
  • Attractive Bent-Gender: Danny's female form "Danika" is stated multiple times to be very "pretty", enough to even get Dash's attention and arouse Paulina's jealousy.
  • Brain Bleach: Danny really does NOT take learning that Dash likes him as a girl well at all…
  • Dark and Troubled Past: Misa Andry was once a slave to a war lord whom presumably was very abusive to her and the other female servants, which resulted in her having a blind hatred of men in general .
  • Deconstruction: Over the topic of sexism and extremism. Misa is a man hater with a Dark and Troubled Past and she vows to liberate women from man's oppression. While her past was difficult and wanting to fight injustice is not bad, her ACTIONS are not acceptable as she tries to physically hurt both men AND women who get in her way.
  • Does Not Like Men: Misa Andry, thought that's putting it MILDLY!
  • Dude Magnet: Danny's female form Danika has a lot of male admirers, much to his dismay.
  • Freudian Excuse: Misa's hatred of men is understandable after hearing her back story…
  • Freudian Excuse Is No Excuse: However, as Jazz and Sam point out, while what happened to her was awful, it doesn't make her actions (Ex: attacking people, destroying property and CHANGING PEOPLE'S GENDERS) justified.
  • Gender Bender: The premise is Danny being changed into a girl against his will.
  • Karmic Transformation: Misa, who has a deep hatred for the male gender, is transformed into a man HERSELF at the end of the story...something she does not take well AT ALL.
  • Moral Myopia: Misa Andry has a strong case of this.
  • Punny Name: Misa Andry's name comes from the word "misandry".
  • Straw Feminist: Misa Andry in SPADES!
  • Sweet on Polly Oliver: Dash unfortunately gets the hots for Danny's female alter ego Danika…Ew!
    • Even more so is that he is NOT the only one who gets sweet on Danika...poor Danny.

     Charmed and Dangerous 
  • Adaptation Name Change: The nameless girl with braces is given a name for this story.
  • All Guys Want Cheerleaders: Not discussed but it's implied Paige "joins" the cheer squad just to get Danny's attention.

  • Birds of a Feather: Despite a lot of hiccups in their relationship, Paige actually does have some similarities to Danny in terms of personality. They both seem to get easily embarrassed by their parents, both can be timid around a crush, can get a little clumsy (though Paige is more explicit that Danny is), both at one point have expressed desire to be popular and accepted by their peers and most of all, a genuine and sincere loyalty to their friends. Suffice to say, she is a lot like Danny prior to his own Character Development .
  • Character Development: Because of the events of the story, Paige Smith gains more confidence in herself and realizes that being popular is not worth it and that what matters is being yourself.
  • Clingy Jealous Girl: Sam, though Tucker keeps her in check.

  • Insult Backfire: When Paulina tell Paige she's not like her and the other cheerleader, she take it as a complement
  • Insecure Love Interest: Paige to Danny.
  • Laser-Guided Karma: Dash and Paulina throughout the story.
  • Longing Look: Paige sends a couple towards Danny during the story.
  • Love Makes You Evil: Not actually evil, just corrupt but it was only due to Enchantra taking control over her until Paige snaps out of it and realizes that what she is doing is wrong.
  • Nice Guy: Just like in the series Danny is this, and it is in fact the reason why Paige has a big crush on him. He not only was nothing short but nice and courteous to her during their date, even when it was going bad, and even the next day, he went out of his way to apologize for hurting her feelings, despite the fact that Paige caused him to have a severe allergic reaction and caused them a lot of calamities that night.
  • O.C. Stand-in: Paige Smith. She's meant to be the nameless girl with braces who is normally a redhead (yet was a brunette in ''Flirting With Disaster).

Then Dash revealed it was a act, he's going back on his deal and is going to continue bullying them, does not care for the help they give him, and has learned nothing about being nice.
  • Butt-Monkey: Dash is a very deserving one in this story. For 99% of the story he gets a lot of bad luck after taking Johnny 13's ring and even when the curse is over, he still is one because of his own actions.

  • Fan Art: A fan of the story commissioned a picture of Michelle Lynne Clarke here
  • Girl of the Week: Michelle Lynne Clarke is the object of Dash's desire in this story. However she ends up becoming this to Danny of all people at the end of the story.
  • Hate Sink: Dash, like in the show is a unrepentant bully who enjoy bullying people and the fact that he can get away with it because of his football skills. At no point in the story is Dash shown to be likable or sympathetic in anyway despite the trouble he's going through or when he asks Danny and his friends to help him and try to be nice. At the end of the story it looks like he's reformed and become a better person only to show how much of a creep he truly is when he breaks the deal to stop bullying them. He makes it clear that he does not care about the fact they helped him, he hates being nice and enjoy bullying them and he's learned nothing.
  • Hypocrite: Dash calls out Sam for refusing to wear the white wig and dress by saying she signed a contract to help him, only to go back on his end of the bargain in the end.
  • Jerkass: Dash Baxter in spades. Just like in canon, he enjoys being a bully and always gets away with it because he is popular and the star of the football team.
  • Jerk With A Heart Of Jerk: Again, Dash. After the entire ordeal was over and it looks like he was grateful to Danny and his friends for helping him, does he actually thank them and keep his promise to stop bullying them? NO! He almost immediately goes back to being a great, big jerk to them and makes it clear that he does not care that they helped and breaks his end of the deal with them much to their shock and outrage.
  • Karma Houdini Warranty: Dash Baxter, who spent most of the series getting away with his bullying of Danny, gets a huge dose of this when he takes the ring that contains Shadow and gets constant bad luck in the process.
  • Karmic Jackpot: Danny Tucker, and Sam try to help Dash get rid of his bad luck, despite the way he always treats them. Even though Dash goes back on his word at the end, they are rewarded by going to a senior party which Dash misses out on because of his actions and Danny even unintentionally wins over the girl that Dash wanted for himself.
  • Laser-Guided Karma: What keeps the fic from having a Downer Ending is Dash gets hit with this when he breaks his promise to Team Phantom to stop bullying him.
    • He accidentally causes Michelle to fall into Danny's arms, which causes him to fall out of the stands and on top of Mr. Lancer, thus getting in trouble and ruining any chance he had left with her.
    • Michelle picks Danny over him and gives him Dash's invitation to her party, and invites all three members of team Phantom to boot.
    • Dash gets both grounded and detention for a month while Danny is at the senior party.

  • Lovable Alpha Bitch: Michelle Lynne Clarke is a beautiful and popular senior at Casper High that is pursued by Dash and she has any male admirers. However, she is apparently nicer than the other popular kids, as she can be friendly to non popular students, regardless of age or popularity status.
  • Nice Guy: Danny Fenton is an all out boy scout compared to Dash. He tried to train Dash to become one of these in hopes of eliminating his bad karma... it didn't stick, unfortunately..
  • No Sympathy: Dash's so called popular friends not only were not sympathetic to his problem, but threatened to cut him from the team unless he got rid of his bad luck.
  • Precocious Crush: Inverted in this story. Michelle Lynne Clarke is a 17 year old senior, 2 years older than Dash and had expressed some interest in him...until the bad luck ruined their date. She however ends up choosing Danny, who is the same age as Dash .
  • Reality Ensues: This story shows the sad truth that not every bully is a good person deep down or is willing to change. Dash in the cartoon has two Pet the Dog moments from the series present. However, those moments are only when he learns that Danny is Danny Phantom, and the episodes "Pirate Radio" and "Micro-Management" show Dash turning on Danny the first chance he gets. In this story, the only reason he goes to Danny and his friends for help is that all of his friends abandoned him and he has no one else to turn to, and he still disrespects them. Danny and his friends reluctantly agree to help him, but only if he makes a deal to stop bullying them. To stop his bad luck they try to turn him nice, but not only does Dash have a problem being nice, it's clear that the only reason Dash is trying to be nice is to get rid of his bad luck. At no point in the story is Dash ever shown to enjoy being nice or grow as a person. At the end of the story, when it looks like he did turn nice, he goes back on his deal with Danny and his friends, using the excuse that it was a cursed item that caused his bad luck and not karma so he wasted time being nice for no reason. It's implied that he's just using that as an excuse and would have broken the deal, anyway. Dash is just a horrible person who enjoys being a horrible person.
  • Redemption Rejection: Dash goes back on his word and has not changed at all.
  • Refuse to Rescue the Disliked: Sam for Dash. Defied with Danny
  • Ship Sinking: Between Dash and Michelle during the entire fanfic.
  • Ship Tease: Danny and Michelle.
  • Single Girl Seeks Most Popular Guy: Zigzagged with Michelle, who also has a bit of Single Woman Seeks Good Man too. She at first liked Dash only to lose interest and later she hits on Danny and invites him to her party after he catches her in his arms.
  • Ungrateful Bastard: Dash to Danny and his friends, even after the three of them tried to help cure him of his bad luck, he just goes back to bullying them after the whole ordeal is over.
  • With Friends Like These...: Dash's teammates and fellow A-Listers threaten to cut him off the team if they think he'll become a liability to it and they weren't at all sympathetic to his plight.

How well does it match the trope?
