As You Were: Lydia's Story by Sarapsys As You Were: Lydia's Story by Sarapsys
bleh im so tired right now.

sorry this one took so long to come out...took forever, + i spent a lot of time on a detour trying to write Ember's, + i went camping one weekend so didn't work on it when i usually would have. hopefully the narrative jump is not too cray? i've been staring at it so long i don't even know if it makes sense anymore.

i pretty much skipped over any explanation of how exactly Freakshow managed to turn her into a ghost when she died...i figure if Vlad can make ghost animals, then a guy who grew up eyeball deep in ghosts can figure out how to make a human one. originally i had it that he poisoned her but it just wasn't working so i axed it.

so, freakshow. gotta say, i was telling someone on here the other day that he's really not one of my favs, but between watching Reality Trip one line at a time to do the transcription for Wikia and writing this comic, i'm a lot more sympathetic towards him now. i really liked the idea that he was at some point a basically normal dude, for a guy who grew up in the circus surrounded by ghosts, but first this thing with Lydia then running a whole circus of nobody but dead people after his parents passed kinda turned his screw a little too far.

i think i might do Box Ghost next....i have kinda half-baked ideas for Ember and Walker, but while I was working on Lydia and Freakshow's i got this really fun ok depressing (look just trust me it's kinda good) idea for ol' boxie.

look i'm kinda half asleep and just rambling now so i'ma stop.

Also in this series:
Skulker
Youngblood
Johnny 13
Box Ghost
Ghostwriter
Technus
Klemper

Danny Phantom belongs to Butch Hartman and Nick

You know? There should be more stories featuring him and Evil Danny. Because Evil Danny is just too much fun to completely ignore. (Not as fun as Fun Danny and Super Phantom, 'cause who can top Super Phantom's bed-sheet in the adorable factor? XD And Fun Danny is all about fun!)

makes sense. In the beginning of the reality trip episode, when the guys in white showed her to him, he seemed to care about her, not just want to use her. not to mention she was loyal to him even without the staff

I'd like to use some of this in a fic (with credit) if you don't mind. I need an example of a ghost and human who love each other, and this backstory fits perfectly.

Apparently, he's anemic. Given this backstory, it's possible he let his health slip by after grief took a toll on his psyche.

Ooh! I love the way you seperated the "In case your wondering..." "dying hurts" It really stuck out in this comic and then you continued with lydia and how she has lost her humanity. Very cool! :D
