TREADING WATER - Chapter Twelve
There are all kinds of addicts, I guess. We all have pain. And we all look for ways to make the pain go away.
- Sherman Alexie
Danny and Tucker strolled through the deserted hallways of Neptune High, with exaggerated casualness to deter any thoughts that they might be sneaking around. Because they definitely weren't sneaking. It didn't matter that the majority of the student body was currently at the football field watching the Narwhals pound the Sea Lions, and they were walking farther and farther in the opposite direction. Their walk said it all: 'We're supposed to be here'.
…at least, according to Tucker it did.
"We're going to get caught," hissed Danny, hefting his duffel bag on his shoulder.
"The school's unlocked," said Tucker, for the fifth time. "Technically we're not breaking any rules."
"I wonder if Lancer would agree… Can you get detention for looking suspicious? And are you sure the pool's going to be empty?"

TREADING WATER - Chapter Eleven
Guests, like fish, begin to smell after three days.
- Benjamin Franklin
Danny stared hard at the glass, eyes tight. The water inside rippled, and stilled. Again it rippled, and again it stilled, like there was a T-Rex approaching Fentonworks. Then, it puckered at its center, and plucked, and-
"Danny, sweetie, are you okay?"
He jerked backward. "What? Huh?"
"You were staring into space," said his mother, and Danny realized everyone at the kitchen table was now looking at him. "Is there something bothering you?"
He shook his head, blinking hard. "No, nothing. I was, uh, thinking about a… math problem." Inside, he winced. That was definitely one of the lamest excuses he had ever come up with.
"Maybe one of us can help you with that?" suggested Mr. Masters, and Danny realized just how bad this excuse was, surrounded on all sides by genius scientists and one soon-to-be genius scientist.
"Thanks, but I forgot most of the numbers. I'm sure I can fig

It's jarring to go from one amazing experience to another that feels ordinary. I don't quite know how to explain it. You see the uniqueness of what you've been doing, and disassociating yourself from it and going back to the 'normal' life is tough.
- Nat Wolff
Danny found Tucker the next morning pacing at the corner near his house. When he saw Danny, the technophile rushed over exclaiming, "Dude! You're alive!"
Danny inclined his head and spread his arms. "I'm alive."
"I mean, I thought you'd be fine," babbled Tucker, "but then I thought, 'That's the Ocean'. The Ocean."
"Uh, yeah…?"
"Like with a capital 'O', Ocean! There are sharks! Man-eating merpeople! The Kraken!"
Danny laughed. "The Kraken?"
"What? We have mermaids, why not the Kraken? Why not Cthulhu, while we're at it?"
Shaking his head, Danny clapped a hand down on his friend's shoulder and said, "I missed you, Tuck." It felt like months since they had seen each other, no

You do your own time in prison. You don't do anyone else's time for them.
- Neil Gaiman
The dead fish floated sluggishly to the floor, where it bounced a little and settled.
Danny looked from it to the indifferent guard, who had already turned his back on the cell. Then he returned his eyes to the fish, wondering for what possible reason it had been tossed into the cell so unceremoniously. At first he thought it was a morbid warning from the Empress. Behave, spy, or this will be you.
However, it was at about the same time that Danny's stomach gurgled, reminding him he had not eaten since before leaving Tucker's house, at least a day earlier. Actually, his stomach had been what woke him up that morning. Assuming it was morning. It was hard to tell how much time had passed, in the unchanging darkness of the prison.
So he remembered Kaima's exclamation regarding the merfolk diet: Merfolk don't eat humans. We eat fish.

TREADING WATER - Chapter Eight
You can't believe how bleeding scary the sea is! There's, like, whales and storms and shit! They don't bloody tell you that!
- Libba Bray
"The Fenton Wetsuit," Jack Fenton proclaimed, fists on his hips and one foot propped upon an overturned bucket. Waves crashed behind him, spraying above the deck and glimmering in a brief rainbow. "The only wetsuit in the world that's actually a dry suit! And I'm not just saying that to cover up the fact that I didn't know the difference between the two when I named them," he added, winking.
"Jack, dear, who are you talking to?" said his wife, who was busy checking the data log for the first buoy on their route.
Jack's audience, the seagull sitting on the railing of the MAC, squawked and flew away. "I'm practicing, Mads!" he said, whirling around. "For the day everyone believes in merpeople, and we'll need to start selling our inventions. We're so close to catching one of those merfiends that I can almost taste i

TREADING WATER - Chapter Seven
There's nothing wrong with enjoying looking at the surface of the ocean itself, except that when you finally see what goes on underwater, you realize that you've been missing the whole point of the ocean. Staying on the surface all the time is like going to the circus and staring at the outside of the tent.
― Dave Barry
"Think fast!"
"If you throw your drink on me one more time, Tucker, I swear I will turn into a merman and eat you."
The tech-enthusiast laughed this off. "Nah, you'd suffocate before you got close. Besides, I've got these bad boys to help me run away," he said, raising his feet in the air and wiggling his toes.
"I just need my head to change, Tuck. I just need my head."
Tucker gulped, and his voice jumped an octave. "You don't want to eat me. I'm bad for your health, chock full of trans fat and bacon grease."
They were at Tucker's house that Friday evening. To Tucker's parents, their story was that Danny would be going home Sa

What would an ocean be without a monster lurking in the dark? It would be like sleep without dreams.
– Werner Herzog
Danny wondered how historical events got their names. Did the old geezers who wrote the textbooks figure it out, or was it the people back then? Like, did they go down to the pub a few days after something happened, and for the sake of being able to reference it, let some drunk dude coin a clever phrase to use?
Case in point: the War of Jenkins's Ear.
It was a good name, but imagine being that guy, Jenkins. You'd go down in history as the guy who lost an ear, complained about it, and started a nine-year war. Nothing else you did would even matter. You'd be 'that ear guy' forever.
Whose fault was that?
And why was Danny worrying about this during his history class, when he actually couldn't care less about the war in question?
He was thinking about his own destiny – the day when his secret disfigurement was blown. Once dis

She had a strange feeling in the pit of her stomach, like when you're swimming and you want to put your feet down on something solid, but the water's deeper than you think and there's nothing there.
― Julia Gregson
Danny tried to see how long he could stay in bed. If he didn't move, if he didn't open his eyes, technically he was still asleep.
This worked for a while. Then his leg itched, and he had to scratch it. Scratching his leg made him realize he'd slept the whole night on his stomach, and now his neck was sore. Turning his head caused sand to fall out of his hair, showering his pillow, so that when he put his head back down his face rubbed against grit.
"Darn it," he grumbled. "Okay. I'm up."
It was almost noon. Danny's bedroom was warm; sunlight streamed through the cracks in the blinds, illuminating the dust motes. Danny stretched, listening to all of his joints 'pop'. As he did this, he inventoried his bedroom – the Hubble Tele

TheFullCatastrophe's Profile Picture

Artist | Hobbyist | Varied
Greetings! It is I, The Full Catastrophe! Thanks for visiting my page!
You may know me from, where I have an account under the same name:
The Full Catastrophe's

On my page, you'll find a lot of stuff about Danny Phantom and my fanfic "Treading Water". That's about all I do. Haha. Enjoy!

Last we spoke, I flipped out and took a multi-week break from the Internet on the basis of:  OMFG PEOPLE Hide in a Box 

This was probably a good thing for the creative process, too, since before that I'd been writing "Treading Water" during every waking moment when I wasn't at work or asleep, and after posting the latest chapter, my brain felt like a wrung-out sponge.  It is now filled again with whatever creative juices interact to produce writing.  (I wonder, can imagination be explained by chemistry???)  

To produce creative brain juices, one must first stuff one's brain with the products of other people's creativity, which I did in great abundance.  I read/watched some cool things these past few weeks, and I want to recommend stuff to you.  (I've stuck a DP Heart next to ones I think would appeal to Danny Phantom fans)

ParanaturalDP Heart 
The Last Halloween
Junior Scientist Power Hour
Not Drunk Enough

TV Shows:
The Flash DP Heart
Trollhunters (by Dreamworks x Guillermo del Toro)DP Heart 

The King in Yellow by Robert W. Chambers 
The Bartimaeus Trilogy by Jonathon Stroud  :love: 

Let's see, what else....

My Life:
1)  The new school year in Japan has started.  I'm teaching new students, who still have the spark of enthusiasm and hope in their eyes!  Don't worry - we'll rid them of it soon enough.  
2)  Spring has come to Hokkaido!  There's grass, bird song, rain, and wind aplenty! 
3)  I picked a date to return to America - for good.  (Or at least for now.)  August 1, I'll end my three-year stay in Japan.  Back home I have such things to look forward to as:  moving in with my parents, looking for a job, going back to school, reverse culture shock, and general existential crisis.  
4)  I'm going to HONG KONG this Sunday for five days!  WHEEE~

Writing Progress:
Treading Water (Chapter 25)... 0%.  Like, I've hardly even thought about it.  Sorry guys.  I'll get back to it soon.   

Winged Away (Chapter 2)... 33%.  Realizing that I probably posted this story prematurely.  Whoops.

The Ice King (Chapter 1)... 70%.  This will probably be the next story to go up on

Danny Phantom Zombie AU... 25,000 words.  I worked on this a lot this month (you know, instead of writing Treading Water or Winged Away)  ^^;

Hospital of Horror!... 8,000 words.  A new, weird Danny Phantom story idea I had this month.  SummaryThe Hospital is where ghosts go to be cured of spectral injuries and illnesses. So what happens when Danny Fenton checks into this facility, and just how do the Doctors plan to cure him of his most singular illness - humanity?  

And now, after my Internet respite, I'm feeling all inspired again!  Inspired to work on... my Merlin fanfiction!  LOL  :lol: 

I'll get back to Treading Water.  Someday.  Soonish.  Probably after my Hong Kong adventure next week.  

Until then,
  • Listening to: 通りゃんせ (Toryanse
  • Reading: The Turn of the Screw, by Henry James
  • Watching: Farscape
  • Eating: "Love is Over" strawberry and choco-chip ice cream
  • Drinking: I LOHAS sparkling lemon water


This is my unactivity activity post.  

So, in recent years, my introvertedness has operated like a pendulum. (Versus in the past, when I was so shy that the thought of talking to people made me ill, 100% of the time.  Child T.F.C once vomited into her backpack at school after going into the crowded lunchroom.  Then she hid it until she got home.  Much gross.  Such shame.)  Sometimes I want to talk to everybody I can.  Other times I curl up in my apartment like a hermit and binge things, pretending the world doesn't exist.  

This is one of those times, and the objects of my binging are quirky webcomics, old fanfictions I used to love, and the show Farscape.  

If I don't respond to you, I'm not ignoring you alone.  I'm ignoring everyone, even my poor granny, because the thought of replying to messages is currently filling me with anxiety, and when something makes me anxious, I pretend it isn't real.  Like the mature adult I am.    

I'll surely pop out of this funk in a week or two.  Until then, live beautiful lives, make great art, eat delicious food, and be happy people.  d=(>,<)=b

Anyway - I'M GLAD YOU LIKE IT!  And I'm sorry for this late reply on your comment!
