AU where Vlad wins and Danny’s life goes to hell. After a little over a decade of struggling and failing to beat Vlad, he finally manages to track down Clockwork and request that he be sent back in time to fix things. Clockwork grants him this request.
When Danny arrives, he’s bitter and angry and intent on killing Vlad so the events of Phantom Planet never happen. But he can’t bring himself to do it, and instead tosses him into the trunk of a car and leaves on a road trip, during which he intends to reform Vlad. 8)
