Like, I never had anything against Jack...
Nor was a big fan of his but...
*Gives him a death glare*
*Let's out big breath*
Ahhh, I feel better.
As I was reading what Vlad was saying in the video...
When he explained about how the ghost that still had their murder wanders free and they're in agony..
I KNEW that Vlad must've been having that with Jack.
It explained so much...
I felt so sad for Vlad...
Poor Vlad... :'(
The whole Maddie thing really shocked me!
It's kinda sad how the main and ONLY person he cared for turned out to be Danny. (I have nothing against Danny or anything! But he IS the son of the guy who murdered him...)
Interesting perspective on the series indeed...

I teared up when I read this. It's a beautiful theory of why Vlad snapped in the last season, why he was the way he was. Beautiful work.

This is definitely a different view of Jack than i usually read, but that's not to say it is bad. I loved it, to be frank. Jack is usually portrayed as a childish being with a rather innocent mindset. However, with Vlad's head that close to the portal he must have somehow, perhaps in the back of his mind, at least registered that he was going to get hurt. It doesn't appear in the series he ever warns Danny about the risks of ghost hunting weapons, and he seems to think that the world will change itself to fit his views, or that he can not be wrong. He thinks Phantom is evil, so he is. He thinks Vlad has forgiven him, so he has. It was intriguing to read him like this, and I enjoyed it.

I suspected but I always thought he was too much of an idiot! :O!

... wow. This is... yeah. Mind is blown.
And yes, while I study archaeology and that only includes labs in some stages (specific dating methods, biological remains, preservation, more obsucre studies) even then you get told to be careful, chemicals being kept seperate with methods that seem almost ocd-like at first glance, there being extra safety things even when there's not a whole lot of funding...
I don't think Jack Fenton is cold and calculating as you described him, but he is stupid in actions, and shouldn't have a hand in dangerous equipment.
What bothers me the most about the Fentons is the moral myopia thing. A kind of "As long as it doesn't hurt us and ours" attitude.

I want more! as good as this one-shot is, it's not long enough! I want to see Jack get his...*Bares fangs at Jack* I agree that the oaf isn't as "innocent" as the series tries to make it seem. Especially since he kept calling Vlad V-man even after Vlad asked him not too. I'm glad that Daniel gets it finally. Most fics don't include Daniel's understanding of Vlad's situation.

Wow...truth to be told...i never liked Jack...he was just such a bumbling bafoon...retarded if you ask me...and wow...that headcanon of ghosts being murdered and such...that's really interesting no? Anyway, really wonderful fic here, I would love to see more of how Danny reacted after but that's just me...so yeah, kudos for an awesome one-shot! ;D

That's a new way to look at things. I always felt horrible for Vlad, but now that I think about it... this just makes it that much worse.
| MeitanteiChristie chapter 1 . 12/25/2012
I... would very much like to see Jack get what he deserves.
And I sincerely thank you for opening my eyes to a possibility of why Vlad hates Jack so much. This is really an eye-opener... I wonder what Maddie was thinking whilst this was happening. She is affected, but affected to what extent? Enough to hate her own husband as well?
And Danny. What's he gonna do now that he knows just WHY Vlad hates his father so much. Does Danny hate his own father now as well? Does his martyr complex and ghost half want revenge for Vlad?
I really wanna know

This is a very powerful, rather unique way to look at Vlad.
I respect your point of view as a scientist (or student) with enough background to make Jack's gross carelessness anger you.
I did think it was weird, but I never gave it quite that much attention. Maddie had just said, "Jack, our calculations aren't quite right." Vlad bent over to get a better look at the proto-portal.
And without thinking, or even paying too much attention, Jack shouted, "Banzai!" while pushing buttons, after Maddie's warning.
Usually, I would never credit malice to sheer obliviousness, as Jack DID seem careless. He missed the ecto-something and substituted diet cola instead. In one of the other episodes, Maddie was in the middle of screwing something together, or adjusting it, and announced that it was ALMOST ready, and Jack snatched it from her to show off how it worked, and it wasn't ready to operate.
I'm usually of a mind to say that Jack is absent-minded, rather than malicious, but you DO make a good case for portraying Jack as an evil villain. I did note that in "Masters of All Time," Jack has the same sinister look and costume. Even his rings are black. You make a compelling case that Jack was - if not calculatingly cruel and vicious - criminally negligent.
I'm a bit shaken, but I see your point.

This is really deep and well written. Kind of causes us look at Jack and Vlad in a different light. It covers up a lot of plot holes, too.
I agree that Vlad's actions were really stupid in the last episode. But this would explain it all.
I'm pretty sure Jack isn't as dense as the show made him appear. Even he should have some idea that his best friend hates him and is hitting on his wife.
Also, it was really sad that Danny was never willing to give Vlad a chance. Sure, he was kind of screwed up, but he's the only other one of his kind around, right? And he used to be his parents best friend too, which means he wasn't always like this. He used to be somewhat likable.

YUSSSSSSSS. This was bloody fucking brilliant! While I don't necessarily agree with the idea of Jack being such a..well, a douche, he is an ignorant buffoon that DID cause Vlad's accident, just as you described. I've always sympathized with Vlad, and frankly it's irked me that Danny never gave him a chance, They'd make such a wonderful team, be it romantically or father/son. So to read this, and to see the beauty of what's been done...just yes. I applaud you.
| assana73 chapter 1 . 10/25/2012
I agree with your view of Jack in that he also was the one who left Vlad in space, essentially murdering him a second time, for very little reason besides "he betrayed me" or "he was going to go after my wife again". Admittedly, I also see a plausible reason for Jack's actions being that he is somewhat socially inept and just plain doesn't understand or recognize certain emotional cues. His carefree and overly one-track mind lend himself to that view rather well.

Damn...that was sad...
| GhostAnn chapter 1 . 10/3/2012
While I understand the frustration and hate toward Jacks actions I feel that you may have warped his character a bit. I feel that Jack wouldn't be cold about it- ignorant and lost- maybe. Possibly even confused. But I doubt he'd be cold. Plus even if Danny did fill angry about it I don't think he'd fill hatred toward him about the situation. He know's he's an idiot. Then again maybe I give Danny too much credit.
I do wonder if Jack ever actually graduated really. It never says. Plus nether Maddie or Jack have titles that I'm aware of- as of such so who's to say the thing with the portal didn't get them expelled or anything.
I do like the fact that you have allowed me and other readers to see it from this prospective though.
It is always interesting to see Jack designed as more than an idiot even if it makes him seam like a total jerk it dose give him more substance.
He is a very 2d character over all in the show.
to sum up this long comment- good job
