Danny fiddled with the glasses that Clockwork had given him. On the surface they looked to be regular glasses. But, according to the time ghost, the spectacles would allow for him to see undeveloped ghosts and aid him in his new mission. A mission, which, was making him feel more anxious every day. His mission, which the elder ghost stressed was simple but yet important. He was to wait and watch the events transpiring in a school. And, under no circumstance was he allowed to intervene unless a group of humans was unable to handle the ghost. He began pacing the floor as the conversation began echoing in his mind.

“You’re only there to observe and act as a form of back up. The place that you will be visiting is not a fixed point in time and, therefore, could be easily distorted.” The time ghost said as he guided the halfa through his lair.

“Okay, that sounds simple enough.” Danny said as he followed the ever-changing ghost fly through corridor after corridor. “How long will I be there?”

“If all goes according to plan, you should be there about a week. I’ve made arrangements for you to stay nearby and have your needs met while on this mission.” He paused to phase from his adult form into his elderly form. “Now, I cannot stress enough how important it is that you only observe the events that will unfold until it is your turn to intervene.”

“How will I know when that is?” Clockwork remained silent as he led the teen to a room where a silver single free-standing mirror sat. The mirror seemed to be displaying a foreign school filled with bright white lights.

“This school is filled with small underdeveloped ghosts. Each of these sprits has come into existence because the students of the school are participating in what they are calling a game. This game, every time it is played, summons another ghost. Each light represents one ghost.” Danny’s eyes widened as he inspected the image. At a short glance, he could easily tell that there were at least a hundred. Clockwork continued before his young charge could comment. “Having this many underdeveloped ghosts will lead to some of them to become unstable. Eventually, the smaller, underdeveloped ghosts, will begin eating each other.

"When that happens, a group of ghost hunters will enter the school.” Danny opened his mouth to protest, but, as his mentor changed from an old man to a small child, he raised his hand to prevent him from interrupting. “Don’t worry, you will be wearing a time medallion and will therefore be undetectable to them. As I was saying, the group will arrive and then begin investigating the problem. They will then attempt to take care of the situation. Your job as an observer is to not intervene until the exact moment when it is necessary.”

“And when exactly will that be?” Danny repeated his earlier question as he turned away from the mirror. His impatience for information did not seem to faze the other ghost as his form morphed back to his adult counterpart. Clockwork continued ignoring the question.

“As the hunters arrive a few of the underdeveloped ghosts will begin to consume one another. This will continue for some time until there is only one ghost who remains. Once this ghost has finished devouring all of the others, it will then rapidly develop into a very volatile entity. If that ghost fully develops, it will be your job to take care of it. The group should be able to dispose of the ghost on their own, but this is not a fixed point in time. Therefore we are sending you to be there in case it does not work properly. ”

“And if it doesn’t?”

“Then one of the most powerful ghosts of all time will be born. Upon its creation, it will target all of the children in the school in order to kill them. Once each child is killed it will devour their underdeveloped ghost and become stronger and stronger. It will be at its weakest when it is born, therefore you must capture it in a Fenton Thermos so that it can never be allowed to develop into the monster that it could be.”

“Geeze, that sounds horrible.”

“Yes, it very well could be.”

Danny stared at the school below. Even though he wouldn’t be able to help the students in the coming days, he felt determined to see this mission through so that there would be a minimal amount of damage done by the potentially dangerous ghost. As his resolve hardened, Danny placed the glasses on his face. As the world around him came into focus the sight before him took his breath away. Each pinpoint of light was warm and calming. The lights were very reminiscent of how Christmas lights appeared on a quiet mid-winter night. As his breath came back to him and he considered the scene below him, he began to wonder: how could something so beautiful eventually turn into something so horrifying?
Ghost Lights
I wrote this for ectober week and decided to post it over here as well. I hope you like it! I don't really have any plans to write anything more for this particular crossover idea, but I might write a different one in the future!

I absolutely adore this song! Ever since I recieved Casting Crown's CD Peace On Earth.

I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day is such an awesome song! I just wanted to share it with you on Christmas Eve.

Here are the lyrics:
" I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play
And mild and sweet their songs repeat
Of peace on earth good will to men

And the bells are ringing
Like a choir they're singing
In my heart I hear them
Peace on earth, good will to men


And in despair I bowed my head
There is no peace on earth I said
For hate is strong and mocks the song
Of peace on earth, good will to men

But the bells are ringing
Like a choir singing
Does anybody hear them?
Peace on earth, good will to men

Then rang the bells more loud and deep
God is not dead, nor doth He sleep
The wrong shall fail, the right prevail
With peace on earth, good will to men

Then ringing singing on its way

The world revolved from night to day
A voice, a chime, a chant sublime
Of peace on earth, good will to men

And the bells they're ringing
Like a choir they're singing
And with our hearts we'll hear them
Peace on earth, good will to men

Do you hear the bells they're ringing?
The life the angels singing
Open up your heart and hear them
Peace on earth, good will to men

Peace on earth, Peace on earth
Peace on earth, Good will to men"


And the story behind the poem written by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow as written in the lyric booklet of Peace on Earth by Casting Crowns

" One of America's best known poets, Henry Wadsworth Longfellow (1807-1882), composed the words to I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day on December 25th, 1864. The carol was originally a poem, "Christmas Bells," containing seven stanzas. Two stanzas were omitted, which contained references to the American Civil War, thus giving us the carol in present form. The poem gave birth to the carol, "I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day," and the remaining five stanzas were slightly rearranged in 1872 by John Baptïste Calkin (1827-1905), who also gave us the memorable tune. When Longfellow penned the words to his poem, America was still months away from Lee's surrender to Grant at Appomattox Court House on April 9th, 1865; and, his poem reflected the prior years of the war's despair, while ending with a confident hope of triumphant peace. As with any composition that touches the heart of the hearer, "I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day" flowed from the experience of Longfellow—involving the tragic death of his wife Fanny and the crippling injury of his son Charles from war wounds. He speaks in verse 2 of the darkness and hopelessness he felt with loss of family and the pain and anguish of war. Yet "the bells" remind him that there is hope even in the midst of a storm. While arranging this poem to new music I added "the song of the bells" using a boys choir."

And finally the poem where it all came from:
"Christmas Bells


    I HEARD the bells on Christmas Day
    Their old, familiar carols play,
        And wild and sweet
        The words repeat
    Of peace on earth, good-will to men!

    And thought how, as the day had come,
    The belfries of all Christendom
        Had rolled along
        The unbroken song
    Of peace on earth, good-will to men!

    Till ringing, singing on its way,
    The world revolved from night to day,
        A voice, a chime,
        A chant sublime
    Of peace on earth, good-will to men!

    Then from each black, accursed mouth
    The cannon thundered in the South,
        And with the sound
        The carols drowned
    Of peace on earth, good-will to men!

    It was as if an earthquake rent
    The hearth-stones of a continent,
        And made forlorn
        The households born
    Of peace on earth, good-will to men!

    And in despair I bowed my head;
    "There is no peace on earth," I said;
        "For hate is strong,
        And mocks the song
    Of peace on earth, good-will to men!"

    Then pealed the bells more loud and deep:
    "God is not dead, nor doth He sleep;
        The Wrong shall fail,
        The Right prevail,
    With peace on earth, good-will to men."
"

Merry Christmas!
