I know it's not a terribly unique idea, the hero and the villain switching bodies, but I searched and didn't find any author who had already used this idea. The last thing you guys need is for me to start yet another story that I will procrastinate and take forever to update, but what the heck. One last thing, the point of view and time will change between Danny's and Vlad's.
Vlad's POV 7:00 A.M.
My head pounded as I began to wake up. It was uncomfortably bright in my room, which was odd because I always kept the curtains closed so that I could wake up when I wanted too instead of when the sun came up. Sleeping in wasn't exactly productive, but I always stayed up late working anyways. I rolled over on my huge bed and was shocked to find that I was no longer in my bed. My aching head smacked onto the floor, and a voice yelled up to me.
"Are you alright up there?" I stayed on the ground clutching my head. It was impossible, wasn't it? No one was in my house except for the maids, and they wouldn't have been able to hear me hit the ground. Besides, the voice I had heard sounded exactly like Maddie's, and she was several states away in Amity Park.
Danny's POV 11:00 A.M.
It was still dark when I opened my eyes. I had a killer headache and for some reason I felt very tired. My bed felt too comfortable and strange, and I tried to get out of it. The only problem was I couldn't find the edge. Since when did my bed get so big? I half crawled half dragged myself across it until I suddenly fell off of the edge.
The thump was louder than usual, and I knew my mom must have heard it. Any second now she would ask me if I was all right. I waited for her to say something. Nothing happened. "Mom?" I called out. My voice sounded very strange, but I was so exhausted that it was probably just my imagination.
No one answered me. In fact I could almost hear the crickets chirping in the background. Maybe it was too early in the morning for mom to be awake. I forced myself up off of the floor and sat down on the edge of the bed. I rubbed my eyes and stared groggily at the clock. A surprised jolt ran through me when I saw that it was eleven AM. I had school today! Why hadn't anyone woken me up!
I stood up too fast and everything went black for a moment. Then I tripped on something and landed on the floor again. Maybe I was too sick to go to school today. I pushed myself off of the floor and found my way over to the curtains. Everything in my room seemed different, and the curtains were huge. I pulled them back and blinked as bright light filled the room.
Instead of the street I live on I saw green fields and cows. Lots and lots of cows. But something else caught my attention too. White hair was hanging down in my face. Was I in my ghost form? It didn't feel like I was. I stared around the brightly lit room that definitely was not mine and saw an open door leading to what looked like a bathroom.
I almost ran over. A large mirror took up most of one wall, and I gasped at the face looking at me from the depths of the glass. It had ice cold blue eyes with dark bags around them, and it reached up and put a hand on a white goatee that was on its chin. The white hair that the reflection had was mostly in a pony tail, but some of it had fallen out and was dangling in front of the face's eyes.
That face was Vlad's face. That face was my face. I took a deep breath and screamed.
I stood up and opened my eyes. The room seemed to spin around me as my head continued to pound, but I managed to figure out that it was very different than my usual room. It was much too small, and I didn't recognize anything. I glanced at the clock on the table besides the bed and saw that it was only seven AM. If I wasn't so confused I probably would have just gone back to bed.
"Danny?" a voice said right outside the door. I turned invisible and watched as Jasmine walked in. "Are you in here? Mom told me to check up on you." She looked around and then whispered, "Hey, I know that you stayed up all night ghost fighting, but you have to go to school, so stop being invisible."
I silently crept up behind her and placed a hand over her mouth to keep her from screaming before turning visible again. "When I take my hand off of your mouth you are going to tell me what is going on." I frowned at the way my voice sounded and took my hand off of Jasmine.
She spun around and I noticed that she was taller than me. "Thanks for scaring me half to death!" she said angrily. "I was ready to break your hand!"
"What's going on Jasmine?" I repeated again, still trying to figure out why my voice was so different.
Jasmine laughed. "You can call me Jazz. Your Plasmius impression was pretty good though. Now get dressed or else we'll be late to school." She walked away and closed the door behind her.
I glared at the door and looked around the room again. Now that I was more awake I realized that it must be Daniel's room. A mirror caught my attention and I walked over to look at my reflection. Black hair and bright blue eyes stared back. I smiled and Daniel's reflection smiled back. This had a lot of potential.
After screaming for about five minutes I stopped and stared at the mirror again. Vlad's face still glared back. I pinched my face to make sure I wasn't dreaming. I didn't wake up. My heart- er, Vlad's heart- was pounding. It wasn't anything like overshadowing someone. Vlad's body was now my body. I was Vlad Masters.
I took another deep breath. "Okay, so I'm in Wisconsin, hundreds of miles away from my house, I look like Vlad, and I sound like him too. How the heck did this happen?" The last thing I remember was fighting a ghost last night, but I wasn't sure which ghost it was. Suddenly the hair on the back of my neck stood up and red smoke flowed out of my mouth.
Vlad's body seemed to take over for a moment and I felt myself change into Vlad's ghost form. There was a loud knock on the door to the room and Skulker suddenly floated through the door. "I'm sorry to disturb you Plasmius, but I've come to tell you that the whelp managed to defeat every single ghost we sent. No one wants to work for you any more, because they're sick of the ghost brat defeating them."
I didn't really listen to what Skulker said. I was too shocked that he had just floated into the room. We were enemies after all. A purple energy blast shot from my hand and I was pushed back by the strength of it. Skulker tried to dodge but it slammed into him and shoved him backwards into a wall. Vlad was a lot stronger than I thought.
Skulker glared at me for a moment before regaining his composure. "I know that you're probably very angry, Plasmius, but it's not my fault that the ghost child is so strong. Why don't you just fight him yourself?"
That's right! I was Plasmius now, and Skulker worked for me. "Uh, okay." I said, not really knowing what to say. Skulker gave me a strange look before leaving.
I turned and looked in the mirror at Plasmius. My face looked so serious and angry. I stuck out my tongue and tried to cross my eyes, but Vlad's ghost form has no pupils and his tongue was pointed, so my reflection looked sort of snake like. This was definitely one of the weirdest things that had happened to me.
Then a strange feeling filled me as I began to realize something. If I was here in Vlad's body, then that meant that he was in Amity Park in my body, and that was not good.
