OKAY SO WES BASICALLY BEGAN AS SOMEONE POINTING OUT THIS ONE BACKGROUND CHARACTER HERE

image

AND SAYING HOW HE LOOKED A LOT LIKE DANNY, AND HOW THERE ARE A FEW GUYS WHO ALSO RESEMBLE DANNY AND THIS IS PROBABLY WHY THE TOWN DOESNT CONNECT THE DOTS AS TO HOW FENTON IS PHANTOM. ( I forget who originated this idea, apologies) THEN SOMEONE MESHED THAT WITH GOTHIEFAIRY’S HEADCANON THAT THERE MUST BE SOMEONE WHO DOES REALIZE FENTON IS PHANTOM AND THINKS ITS REALLY FREAKING OBVIOUS, AND SINCE THIS GUY LOOKS LIKE FENTON ITS AN IRONIC TWIST HOW HE’S THE ONLY ONE TO NOTICE THIS

THEN WE GOT WES I BELIEVE BECAUSE SOMEONE WANTED THE PLAY ON THE JOKE OF ‘WHO THE HECK IS WES’ FROM SHADES OF GREY AND THE ENGRAVED RING THAT SAM READ WRONG

FROM THERE THE PHANDOM HAS LATCHED ONTO THIS GUY, PICKED OUT ANOTHER BG CHARA TO BE HIS DAD, COME UP WITH A WHOLE PAST AND DIFFERENT MOTIVES DEPENDING ON WHO YOU ASK, BUT WES IS JUSTA GUY WHO IS CONSTANTLY DONE WITH HOW NO ONE NOTICES THAT FENTON AND PHANTOM ARE ONE IN THE SAME

from there it just depends who you ask about other things and such. Pretty much though we are a phandom who hasn’t had new content for like 7 years so we’re a little stir crazy and desperate to expand on the world. 

Well explained

Bah my computer might actually be dead for good :(

danny phantom is a lie wes was the ghost boy the whole time.

icyandthefrostbites:

I like how Wes has taken over the Phandom.

there’s always something XD

dreamwraith:

Not to put a crimp in the newest fandom trend, but wasn’t the original point of the post about “Wes” to demonstrate how there are probably numerous characters we don’t see who look like a lot like Danny

And that’s why no one in that town ever suspects him?

I don’t particularly care about his character, and I don’t wish to ruin anyone’s fun, but it seems kind of inconsiderate to take his image and run and forget about what brought his character to light in the first place

a lot of the fun of fandoms for me is that they take ideas and build on them - first from the canon itself, and then from each other. personally i think it’s possible to respect the initial idea that first brought up a train of thought, but that doesn’t make the ideas that build on it inconsiderate imo, even if they don’t match.  for me the fun of the idea of some kid at casper high who suspects danny is funny BECAUSE the show consistently didnt even TRY to make danny’s excuses and people’s easy acceptance of them believable, which for me was part of the humor of it.

in any case, i think its p much inevitable that an idea that takes hold in ANY group of people is going to take on meanings that the initial suggester never thought or intended.  i don’t see inconsideration in people being inspired by something and running with it.

grabbing onto the back of the wes wagon for a couple minutes haha

"Hey you you look a little like Phantom!"
"Not as much as that Fenton kid…"

haha it would be great if his pals tease him that he’s probably phantom and he just makes up all these insane conspiracy theories about that fenton kid to throw people off his trail

valerie is a werewolf hunter with the rest of the a-listers. she’s about  2 minutes from figuring out that that nasty infected scratch she’s been hiding since their last hunting party was off a tooth, not a claw…

sam in this au is totally a were-rights activist and the fentons are obsessed with studying lycanthropy and other human species variants

i have no idea how danny fits into this….

in other news i have been looking at a lot of lineless art lately and tried to give it a go

that’s how you make armor for women, no bullshit boob cups.

Just beautiful.

Boob cups must be the most uncomfortable things on earth… What the hell are you supposed to do when one of your boobs slips out? Let’s say you inhale or move your chest somehow so your breasts get free from the cup and end up clipped on the edge?? You can’t even pull them like you can when your bra gets all screwed up! Like who wants to wear that while they’re fighting monsters and shit?

I hit reblog so hard I may have sprained my finger

21 Tips to Keep Your Shit Together When You’re Depressed.


A while ago, I penned a fairly angry response to something circulating on the internet – the 21 Habits of Happy People. It pissed me off beyond belief, that there was an inference that if you weren’t Happy, you simply weren’t doing the right things.

I’ve had depression for as long as I can remember. It’s manifested in different ways. I did therapy. I did prozac. I did more therapy. My baseline is melancholic. I’d just made peace with it when I moved, unintentionally, to a place that had markedly less sunshine in the winter. I got seasonal depression. I got that under control. Then I got really, really sick. Turns out it’s a permanent, painful genetic disorder. My last pain-free day was four years ago.

So, this Cult of Happy article just set me off. Just… anger. Rage. Depression is serious – debilitating, often dangerous, and it’s got an enormous stigma. It leaves people to fend for themselves.

It’s bad enough without people ramming Happy Tips at you through facebook. There is no miracle behaviour change that will flip that switch for you. I know, I’ve tried.

A friend of mine suggested that I write something from my point of view because, surprisingly, I manage to give an outwards impression of having my shit together. I was shocked to hear this. And I find this comical, but I see her point. I’m functioning. I’ve adapted. I’m surprisingly okay. I think the medical term is “resilient”.

So, here it is.

My 21 Tips on Keeping Your Shit Together During Depression

1) Know that you’re not alone. Know that we are a silent legion, who, every day face the solipsism and judgement of Happy People Who Think We Just Aren’t Trying. There are people who are depressed, people who have been depressed, and people who just haven’t been hit with it yet.

2) Understand that the Happy People are usually acting out of some genuine (albeit misguided) concern for you, that it’s coming from a good place, even if the advice feels like you’re being blamed for your disease. Telling you these things makes them feel better, even if it makes you feel like shit. (If they insist on keeping it up, see #12.)

3) Enlist the help of a professional. See your doctor. You need to talk about the ugly shit, and there are people paid to listen and help you find your way to the light at the end of the tunnel.

4) Understand that antidepressants will only do so much. They’re useful, they’ll level you out and give you the time you need to figure out your own path to getting well. They can be helpful. There are lots to choose from. They may not be for you, and even if they are, they take some time to kick in. Conversely, they may not be for you. Work with your doctor.

5) Pick up a paintbrush, a pencil, an activity you got joy from in the past and re-explore that. Or, sign up for the thing you always wanted to try. There is a long history and link between depression and creativity. It’s a bright light of this condition, so utilize it to your best advantage.

6) Eat nutritionally sound, regular small meals. If you’re having trouble eating, try to focus on what you’d like to eat. I went through a whole six week episode of tomatoes and cream cheese on a bagel twice a day. Not great, but it was something – helpful context, I’m a recovered anorexic. Conversely, if all you want to do is scarf down crap, try to off-ramp it by downing a V-8 and doing #9 for 15 minutes, and see how you feel. Chucking your blood sugar all over hell’s half acre is going to make you feel worse.

7) While you’re doing #3, get some bloodwork done. If you’re low on iron or vitamin D, or if your hormone levels are doing the Macarena… these can all contribute to zapping your energy or switching your mood to Bleak As Hell.

8) If you’re in bed and the “insomnia hamsters”, as I like to call them, are on the wheel of your head, watch Nightly Business News on PBS. This has the effect of Nyquil. Swap out your coffee for herbal tea. If you just cannot sleep, try the next tip….

9) Learn how to meditate. Start by focusing on your breathing. Not sleep, not thoughts. In through the nose, out through the mouth. Meditation is focusing on being present in your body, not careening around in your brain. It may not be as good as sleep but it will give you some rest and recharge you.

10) Face a window as often as you can – at work, at home. Look out into the world. Watch. Observe. Try to find something you find pretty or interesting to focus on. And, handily remember that one in five of those people out there feel the way you do.

11) Cry. Better out than in. Sometimes it’s not convenient or career-enhancing to cry, so find a private place as best you can and let the tears go. Carry Kleenex and face wipes and extra concealer if you wear makeup. You can always claim allergies.

12) Any “friend” who resolutely believes that your depression is because you’re lazy, because you’re not trying hard enough, who blames you for not bootstrapping out of it- that friend needs to be cut off. Polite (#2) is one thing, but there is a limit. You don’t have to explain, you can just not respond. You feel badly enough, you don’t need their “assistance”.

13) Limit your time with people who drain you. You know who they are. Often you don’t have a choice- but you can put the meter on. And, subsequently, be aware of what you’re asking of those close to you.

14) Everyone has shit they’ve got to deal with. What you have been saddled with is your shit. Recognize, just as you’re not alone, you’re also not unique. The grass may look greener, you may be jealous or envious of others who don’t have to deal with depression, but you likely do not know everything that’s going on with them.

15) Let go or be dragged. This is an old Buddhist saying. It’s a very useful way to frame aspects of depression. Betrayal, anger, fear… letting go is a process – often a painful and difficult process - but it’s ultimately going to show you the path out of this terrible place. Repeating the mantra can help when you’re feeling gripped by these feelings.

16) Wear clothes that make you feel confident. It takes as much time to put on nice clothes as it does to put on sweatpants. You will want to wear the sweatpants. Fight the urge. The whole “look good/feel better” campaign isn’t limited to cancer and chemotherapy. Or women.

17) Avoid fictional drama and tragedy like the plague. No Grey’s Anatomy, no to The Notebook, or anything that won a Pulitzer prize. You’ve got enough going on In Real Life. Comedy only. Or trashy stuff. Old episodes of WonderWoman? I’ve got the box set. Mindless drivel, like the latest CGI blockbuster. Or clever, funny books. David Sedaris. Jenny Lawson. Fiction exists to elicit emotion, and the emotion you need to express most right now is laughter.

18) Simple exercise, if you can. It can be something as simple as taking the stairs up a flight, or walking around the block. It doesn’t have to be elaborate, it doesn’t have to involve climbing a mountain or running a marathon. Baby steps.

19) Depression will lie to you. Depression will try to tell you what others are thinking. That you are unloved and unworthy, that others think little of you or don’t care – or even wish you harm. You are not a psychic. Keep repeating that. “I am not a psychic”. Repeat. The only way to know what another person is thinking is to up and ask them.

20) If you are well and truly losing this battle, reach out to someone. I’ve been the random friendly-but-not-close person who has fielded the occasional outreach. I like to think I’m not judgemental and generally resourceful, and others have thought the same, so they called and asked. You know someone like me. And they will help you.

21) Forgive yourself. I’m writing out all these tips, and I can’t always muster the strength to even stick my nose outside, or walk up the stairs, or eat my vegetables. Today, I got outside for ten minutes. I will try again tomorrow. And I will try again the day after that.
