Fan Fic: A British Werewolf In Danville
A British Werewolf in Danville
is a Phineas and Ferb Gen Fic
, written by a user/troper named FossilsDaDaDa
, who also wrote First Contact A Gemini Story
The story follows Phineas, Ferb, and his friends on Halloween night. In a true Phineas-and-Ferb fashion, Ferb is given, as they think, the coolest costume in history by being transformed by genetic engineering into a 200-pound green werewolf. Unfortunately, Ferb looses his mind shortly after Trick-or-Treating is over
and begins to attack. Using Jessie's
cleverness, Candace's strength, and Perry's venom
, the gang tries to turn Ferb back to normal.
Its reviews have been almost universally positive, some even considering it one of the best fics ever written for the franchise.
A British Werewolf in Danville contains examples of:
- Action Dress Rip: Jessie tears the hem of her dress to run from the werewolf.
- Adults Are Useless: Major Monogram, literally the only adult who gets any screen time in this story, is the opposite of helpful.
- Becoming the Costume: Invoked by the brothers for 'the best Halloween ever'.
- Big Friendly Dog: Were Ferb, before he looses his mind and after he becomes sane again.
- Big "NO!": Phineas lets one out when his brother falls off the edge of the multi-level parking lot.
- Deadpan Snarker: Baljeet gets this gem:
Baljeet: "Um, yes. Why do I need to go with Buford?"
Phineas: "Because Buford needs you for his costume."
- Death Glare: Baljeet receives one from Buford after questioning why he must look for costume supplies with him.
- Mood Whiplash: Things go from perfectly happy to entirely terrifying for the characters quite abruptly in Chapter 4.
