'''Stories of the Vanished Man''' is a ''PhineasAndFerb'' fanfic series by {{Tropers/Kuzlalala}}. It is about one of the [[RiddleForTheAges biggest mysteries of the series]]: Phineas and Candace's biological father. The series are mostly made of {{Fluff}}, [[GenFic Gen Fics]], and loads, ''loads'' of WildMassGuessing.

The series are yet to be completed. WordOfGod said that the series will have 4 fanfics. Here are the existing ones so far:
* '''[[http://pffanon.wikia.com/wiki/What_a_Man What a Man]]''' is an fanfic in progress centers around [[spoiler:Perseus Papadakis]] and Linda Flynn. Before you ask, yes, Perseus here is Phineas and Candace's biological father. This is like a guidebook, so it's the least related story towards the series.
* '''[[http://pffanon.wikia.com/wiki/Reconstructing_the_Last_Treasure_of_the_Man Reconstructing the Last Treasure of the Man]]''' is a fanfic which [[OriginalFlavor tries to fit into a format]] of a regular ''Phineas and Ferb'' episode. In this fanfic, Phineas and Ferb found a blue print made by [[OriginalCharacter Perseus Papadakis]]. Despite that it's about Perseus Papadakis, [[spoiler:it has never been pointed out that he's Phineas and Candace's biological father]]. This one is completed.

Expect a lot of spoilers below.
