Series: Dan Vs.
Summary: None of the identities previous could have predicted one life could so drastically influence another…
Dan* wasn’t a bad man…
Of course, he was a criminal, and one would usually find that synonymous with such words as bad, evil, or cruel, but it simply was not true. Dan* stole away the lives of the careless, that was a fact, but there was no malicious intent. The thief assumed the identity of a baker, but used the knowledge and skills from this experience to make others smile with his cooking. There was another time when Dan* became a teacher of self-defense, honing his reaction time along with his strength, yet he never harmed a soul.
An absolutely countless amount of experiences, ideas, lives, and the like were tucked snugly away in the man’s mind. Some of those skills were top secret, and proved quite useful for the trade of identity theft. Of course, it didn’t go without its risks. Jail time was occasional, but since Dan*—overlooking the obvious illegal activities—was such a good person, his stay was often cut short.
Until the identity of one Dan Mandel fell into his lap.
I rewatched Dan vs. The Telemarketer and when the imposter calls Dan, “Mancookie,” he boops him on the nose.
