Danny Phantom Must Die
Clockwork sighed to himself softly as he closed yet another book in favor for the calling of his dear employers.
'Must the Observants demand me so?' he wondered briefly, his form trailing from young to adult to old consequtively; twisting and turning but never one age or time just like his fascination and post.
"What do you want now," Clockwork quarried, annoyed, as he floated calmly into the main room of his tower where the Observants stood, clothed in shadows.
"You must see this," the first uttered, pointing one hand towards the round screen. Again Clockwork sighed and turned his gaze towards time.
Dan Phantom howled; finally he'd broken down they're precious barrier and he'd complete that which he started so long ago....
Clockwork frowned and with but a thought paused the image on the screen. He floated up to view the face of this menacing ghost, taking in the contours and lines. The eyes that were small, almost beady, and glowing red. Pupils were obvious, tiny but still seen, and the whites were slanted by black; it almost seemed like the ghost had lined them in khol. Clockwork knew otherwise, deep down, and he frowned.
He knew this ghost.
With but another thought he shifted the image to another, a young boy, and he spoke, "Danny Phantom grows up to be the most evil ghost on the planet."
He clenched his staff tightly as the image changed again, this time to a boy at his assembly. In his minds eye however he could see the black haired, human child as something more.
Brilliant white, messy hair and green on black eyes, wide at the upcoming test oh why must I?
The image vanished as fast as possible and Clockwork turned, coldly, and uttered, "What do you want me to do about it?" to the Observants.
The child turned, wanting to be told why he couldn't go out and play with the others, his green on black eyes curious and wondering but saddened all the same with knowing...
Why must they bring up that which they do not understand?
"You're the Master of Time, Clockwork. Isn't it obvious?" the first uttered and the second stepped from his shadows.
"To save the future Danny Phantom must perish," the second uttered. Clockwork's eyes narrowed, red smoldering.
He turned away and uttered a short, "Yes."
Danny Phantom must die.
