Author's notes: this chapter takes place at the end of Phantom Planet. The only differences are that Danny and Sam did not become a couple and Paulina was at the artic base.
The earth had been saved from the disasteroid. Danny had revealed the secret of his douple life just 20 minuets ago. Since then, Valerie had disappeared into some unknown part of the artic base and Paulina had not said a word. The hispanic bisexual girl had simply put an angry expression on her face.
"I know you're mad at me," Sam said to her currently pissed off girlfriend. "But look, it very important that we kept Danny's secret a secret. Even his parent's didn't know."
"Well of course they didn't know," Paulina said. "Telling his ghost hunting parents that he's part ghost would be like a black guy throwing himself at the mercy of the KKK. Look, I need to know: did you not tell me becuase of securtiy reasons or becuase you thought I would abandon you once I found out that the ghost boy was also the easily seduced Danny Fenton?"
"It was only for securtiy reasons," Sam said. "Besides, I don't think Danny's interested in you since he found out all those things about you."
"You mean my intillegence, bisexuality and other eccenctricities?" Paulina asked, to which Sam nodded yes. "That would freak out a lot of people. Fortunatly the only person whose opinion of me I care about any more is you," Paulina said embraced Sam and gave her a peck on the lips.
Danny had spent the past 10 minuets flying over and through the artic base looking for Valerie. While he wasn't looking forward to the awkard conversation he would have with her, he knew it was necessary.
After some time of searching, Danny found who he was looking for. At least she's not in her ghost hunting suit Danny noticed. That's a good sign.
"Hello Danny," Valerie said in a low energy manner.
"Hello Valerie," he said as he touched down and reverted to his human form. Danny took this opportunity to explain himself: how the ghost dog incident was an accident, how unmasking her in front of her father was his way of protecting her from the ghost king and how he knew that she wasn't in her original suit when he destroyed it.
Valerie was so shocked by Danny's revelation that she didn't now what to make of it. So when he explained himself, she was willing to listen. "Danny, can you ever forgive me for what I did to you?" Valerie asked after Danny was done.
"Of course I can," Danny said. "You only attacked me because you were angry and misguided. But that's all in the past now."
"Oh Danny," Valerie said as she quickly embraced him. They stayed that way for several moments before breaking apart. "There's something else we need to talk about."
"I... I'm not really sure how to say this, I'll just take the direct approach. I'd like us to try being a couple again."
"I'd like that too," Danny said as he gently grabbed Valerie's hand. They stared into each other's eyes for a while before leaning forward and kissing.
Several days later, everyone had returned to Amity Park. Tucker was now inside the mayor's office, familiarizing hemself with what would now be his place of work. But he had another idea in mind. Let's see if Vlad left anything interesting for me, he thought as he began a thorough search.
Several minuets into his search, he heard his cell phone ring. "Hello," he said after he turned on the device and brought it to his ear.
"Hello Tucker," Paulina said on the other end. "There's something I want to talk to you about."
"I was thinking about how we destroyed Dash's reputation by combining my evil genuis and your technological genius. I think that if we continued to do that in the future, we could make a lot of money."
"Did you have anything specific in mind?"
"Not yet, but I'll think of something eventually. And when I do, I'll let you know. Oh, and another thing: as my way of saying 'thank you' for helping me take down Dash, how would you like me to blackmail Star into going out with you?"
"I would like that very much. And since we're on the topic of blackmail, do you know Kwan's e-mail address? I ask because I plan to send him an e-mail informing him that if he doesn't stop harrassing my geeky brethren, I'll tell everyone about the secret in his pants."
"blackmail is fun, isn't it?"
"It sure is," Tucker agreed, then Paulina relayed the information he wanted. With that out of the way, he resumed his search for anything of interest. About 15 minutes later, he found a small bag with a money symbol on it that was filled with cash.
Things are finally looking up for me, he thought.
Sometime later, Sam and Paulina were spending time together in the park. "Sam, you know how I'm planning to join the drama club?" Paulina asked.
"Yeah," Sam said. The dark dressed teen had suggested the idea after seeing how well she had put on the act of being bubbly bimbo.
"Well when I do, I'm hoping we can put on a production of Romeo And Juliet, with you as Romeo and me as Juliet," Paulina said.
"A same gender version of Romeo And Juliet," Sam said as she contemplated the idea. "That'll piss a lot of people off."
"I know," Paulina said with a satisfied grin.
"Perfect," Sam said, then hugged her girlfriend. "I never thought I'd meet someone who'd enjoy pissing off the establishment as much as me."
"Well I never thought I'd meet someone who'd accept all my non-bimboey traits, so I guess we're even," Paulina said, then the two of them looked into their eyes in a lovestruck manner.
