A/N: I know I should be working on Breaking Tradition, but I thought of this and I just couldn't let it go! Crazy? Yes, I know.
So, here is a little (or not so little ) Danny Phantom story. It's right after they get home from the South Pole. Mostly about Danni, some DxS, might be some TxV, I don't know.
First Danny Phantom fic so, BE NICE! Please? * whips out puppy dog eyes* I hope ya'll like it!
Chapter one- Reunions.
The huge Fenton Works sign loomed above me as I raised my fist up to the wooden door. I bit my lip, wondering if would be better to just wait until morning and come to him while he was in school. I hoped he could help; I was tired being a nomad and I needed a home. I was hoping my only remaining "family" would be able to help with that.
I thought about the last time I had seen him. He was wrapped in the arms of the Goth girl who obviously liked him. I had smiled as I watched her throw herself at him, knowing what would come next. I had watched as Skulker had threatened him, smirking at the exchange. I had watched hi, invisible and astonished, reveal his secret to the seventy some people. I had stayed as they decided to keep it a secret. I had hitched a ride back and went through the portal, never making myself known to anyone.
But the sense of home that had been so warm and welcoming in the Fenton household hadn't ever left me, and I wanted to feel that feeling again. I wanted to have a family, a home.
"I really should just knock on the door, what are they going to do? Kick me back on the streets?" I thought.
I sighed and brought my hand forward- it never reached the painted wood.
"I won't have to worry about it now anyways."
I felt the cold sweep up my spine before it tore itself from my lips as a cloud of cold air before I jerked my hand back, turning a one eighty and running to the alley beside his house. Changing as I ran I looked around, trying to find the ghost who had set off the sense. I jumped into the air and flew up, still searching for the ghost.
A flash of green sparked in the corner of my eye and I whipped my head around to get a look at who had sent the ectoplasm flying at someone. I saw Skulker shooting at Danny and Danny laughing and dodging his attacks. I smiled as I turned invisible again, flying up to right behind Skulker. I put my hands together and aimed at the hinge in his armor, letting my hands glow green before a well-aimed shot broke the hinge that attached the head to the rest of the body. I smirked as Danny's face went from confusion to careless as he sucked the newly exposed Skulker into the Fenton Thermos.
I watched as Danny screwed the top back on the canister and looked around for his helper. I grinned and flew up to him, close enough to reach out and poke him. I grinned again as I took a breath and let it out as I dropped the invisibility. I almost laughed at the shocked expression as I floated in front of him. I saw him smile and I grinned in response.
"What? Not even a hello?" I asked, feigning a hurt an expression. He just grinned and I flew at him, hugging him. I felt him wrap his arms around my waist before he replied.
"Hey. I didn't expect you today." He said, and I laughed lightly.
"Do you ever?" I asked, letting go and flying back a little to look up at him.
"I hope." He said, and my heart warmed a little.
Maybe, maybe this'll work. Maybe it'll be great.
"So, what brought you to this part of the world?" he asked, cocking his head to the side.
I blushed and bit my lip, my hand went up to my neck and I looked down. I hadn't really thought about how I would phrase my question, but I still needed to ask it. I looked back at him and he was looking at me in that concerned way only he could manage. His green eyes were somewhere between curious and concerned as I bit my lip.
I took a deep breath and let it out before I hurriedly said what I was thinking.
"I need a home."
His eyes widened, going from concerned to completely shocked. He bobbed a little in the air, losing height and then gaining it again quickly.
"You need… what?" he asked, voice shocked and quivering just a little.
I didn't realize how much I was banking on this, how much I had wanted it, but his expression definitely made me see it. I had wanted this badly, and now that I didn't think I was going to have a chance at getting it, it hit hard. I felt my hands flutter at my sides as I lowered my eyes away from his dumbstruck expression. I felt the back of my eyes sting, and I blinked; that was the last thing I needed right now.
"Dani?" Suddenly he was right there, in front of me, and I felt a gloved hand on my chin. He pulled my face up, making me meet his eyes. His eyes widened at the sight of mine, and the shock melted into pure concern. "Oh, Dani, what's the matter?"
"I need a home, you know, a place to stay." I said as I looked down, examining the familiar DP symbol that adorned his chest.
I could hear the smile in his voice, "Well, then I guess you need to meet the family."
I almost dropped out of the sky right then. The only thing holding me in the air was the gloved hand still on my chin. I smiled at him, the stinging in my eyes finally bringing tears to my eyes as I threw myself at him, hugging him for all it was worth.
"What's wrong?" he asked, noticing my watery eyes.
"Nothing," I said, "absolutely nothing."
I could tell he was smiling, and then he wrapped his arms around me, warm and comforting, like a brother.
"I have a question." he stated as he let go of me, his tone demanding an answer.
"Shoot," I said.
"Where have you been staying up until now?" he asked, looking at me curiously, apprehension hinting.
"The Far Frozen. I have Ice Powers." I said, he didn't look surprised by that and then I remembered, I was his clone, of course he knew I had Ice Powers.
"Watch what I can do!" I said excitedly as I grinned up at him. He just laughed quietly and nodded.
I put my hands together, letting them glow blue for a moment before bringing them apart slowly. I left the fog hanging in the air to cover up my work. I concentrated, tensing my fingers every now and then. I smiled as I brought my hands away and swept the fog from the air, revealing my work. I had sculpted a 3-D version of our DP logo, the ice representing the white in our jump suits. I looked at his expression, a look of pure pride, and back down at the logo before handing it to him. He took it in his hand as if it was made of the most fragile glass and anything would break it. I couldn't help but smile at the reaction.
"This is amazing," he said as he examined the sculpted ice. I smiled.
"Thanks," I said, blushing at the compliment.
"So, why do you need a place now?" he asked, his eyes back on me. "Not that you weren't welcome before! I was just asking."
"Well, my training is over, and the Far Frozen is just a little cold for my tastes. I'm too young to have a lair yet, and I don't do the whole living in a box." I finished with a smile.
"Well, let's go meet the family," he said, smiling at me as he landed on the roof below us, which happened to be his house.
He looked at me and turned intangible; sinking straight through the ceiling into what I hoped was his room. I took a deep breath and followed him, phasing through the roof and into his room. The room hadn't changed much at all since I had been here last, just a few more pictures of Sam and Tucker.
That's when I heard the sounds of footsteps on the stairs and I turned invisible on instinct. Danny grabbed my wrist and sent a wave of power over me, making me visible again. He gave me a stern look and glanced back at the stairs.
"We don't have to tell them who exactly you are unless you want to." he said, looking me in the eye and letting go of me as I heard a knock on the door. He smiled, "It'll be okay."
A/N: I'm sorry if this seemed really rushed, but I had this idea and it just kind of came, so I wrote it. That's about all there is to this fic.
If you like it and want me to continue, reveiw and tell me so. Or PM me, that's fine too.
