"You know imekitty, you have a knack for creating an atmosphere of unease and refusing to give it any catharsis. And I like it a lot."
- pretty much the best compliment I've ever gotten in a review
If you want to know the honest truth, I never actually try to write angst. It just happens. :/
For checking out my profile, I thank you. :) And do message me if you like what I have written! I love to chat with people about writing or Danny Phantom, and so many wonderful reviewers and authors here have inspired many of the great ideas that I have featured in my fics. You are all my muses!
And please message me because talking to people about fics or DP makes me happy.

Aliases: imekitty, Empress Kitty (if you ever see these usernames elsewhere, they are almost always me!)
I have a BA in Linguistics, an MA in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL), and work primarily as a writing teacher. I enjoy teaching the art of academic writing to my students, but my true love is creative writing. I of course have many original works of fiction (one being a novel to be published soon, finally!), but fanfiction has always been fun for me since I am quite the geek with many fandoms.
What I am doing with Danny Phantom fanfiction now:
I'm setting out to be the most prolific Danny/Paulina writer ever. :b Although I probably have already achieved that, let's be cereal...
I have plans to continue "Disparaged."
I finished writing an alternate one-shot version of "Disparaged."
I have finished a Danny/Paulina fic that is rated M. I'm afraid to upload it, though. But you can find it on AO3 under my username titled "Magic Tower."
I have finished a rated M Jack/Maddie fic, but I'm afraid to upload this one, too.
About my fanfiction:
I only write Danny Phantom fics. I just think it lends itself the best to fanfiction out of all of my fandoms. The characters are so much fun to work with, and there is so much that the show never had a chance to get into because it was cancelled far too soon. My fanfics are all character stories, focused more on development and revelations rather than action. I love really getting into the characters' heads, making them tick, getting them out of their comfort zones, doing things with them that no one has done before. The show didn't do that nearly enough, I think. It was more focused on action. That's not a bad thing, but I would've loved to see more inward character stuff. That said, I recognize that it is a cartoon for an intended audience that is younger than me, so any serious character development would not have been appreciated by younger viewers. Even when Danny Phantom first aired, I was still a couple years older than the intended age group.
My fanfics will never be very long (i.e. probably never more than fifty thousand words). I would rather reserve that kind of energy and time for my original fiction. However, I do really love writing fanfiction, so even if they're somewhat short, they will still be packed with a lot.
My Danny Phantom headcanon:
Like any writer, I've created a world for my fanfiction that abides by specific rules that are not necessarily canon but are based on observations I've made and theories I've developed. You'll see these rules inform all of my fanfiction in some way.
Danny's ghostly obsession: He might be only half ghost, but he too has a ghostly obsession that is stronger when he is transformed but sometimes affects him in human form. He is obsessed with eliminating his pain, especially emotional but also physical. (I explore this specifically in "The End of Danny," but traces of it can be seen in other fics like "Disparaged" or even the Spectra chapter of "Undressed.")
Vlad's ghostly obsession: Vlad is obsessed with obtaining the perfect life, the perfect status, the perfect family, the perfect wife, and to have his greatness recognized, especially by Maddie. (I also explore this in "The End of Danny.")
No perspiration in ghost form: Danny (and Vlad and other ghosts) does not sweat when transformed.
Generally normal vitals when human: Danny (and Vlad) has mostly normal vitals when human. A few abnormalities and traces of ectoplasm in his blood which is why Danny avoids seeing a doctor, but not enough to cause too much alarm.
Half-ghost does not equal half-dead: Danny (and Vlad) is half-ghost, but he is not in any way dead. Being a ghost is distinctly different from being dead. Danny still has working organs and physiological systems even when transformed. He can still be killed. When he does die, he won't become "full" ghost but will pass on to whatever existence is beyond the ghost realm like any other human (and ghost who is killed). And really, this technically isn't headcanon because Butch Hartman itself has confirmed that ghosts are not dead but rather "monsters from another dimension."
Ectoplasmic blasts induce nausea: Being directly hit with an ectoplasmic blast results in debilitating nausea and increased temperature. Effects are more or less the same for humans and ghosts, but humans are more likely to be killed or seriously injured.
Clockwork does not know if God is real or not: Clockwork has omniscience only regarding the Ghost Zone and its inhabitants. He does not know if there is an afterlife beyond the Ghost Zone, does not know if there is a final resting place for the souls of humans or ghosts who have been killed or have finally overcome their obsessions allowing them to move on.
Danny is Maddie's favorite: Maddie loves both of her children dearly, but Danny is secretly her favorite. (And Jazz is Jack's favorite...but to a lesser extent.)
My thoughts on reviews:
I will never beg for reviews. Just seeing follows, favorites, or even just views is enough validation for me. I don't want anyone to ever feel obligated to review my work because I am happy to write just for the sake of writing. However, if you do choose to review any of my stories, please feel free to say what is in your heart. If you feel strong about something, say so, good or bad! I am grateful for your attention no matter what.
Happy Luscious Danny
