Fanfic / Phineas and Ferb in Dimmsdale

Go To

A crossover fanfic series between Phineas and Ferb and The Fairly OddParents, written by ArendAlphaEagle, aka Arend. In it, Phineas, Ferb and their friends take a seven-day vacation in Dimmsdale, California, where they meet Timmy Turner and his friends and have adventures with, varying from building a giant waterslide to holding a skateboarding duel. Trixie and Veronica join in eventually, with the latter having discovered Perry's secret and sometimes joins in his missions, too. Doofenshmirtz would naturally be Perry's nemesis, but later on decided to stay in Dimmsdale as well for a bit of rest... but eventually finds himself getting none and instead enlisting his nemesis for help.


The series consists of five parts and a spinoff, which are as follows:

  1. Bet-tle at the Mall: Phineas and Ferb are challenged by Trixie to make a big project to prove how great they are at inventing. When Remy Buxaplenty hears about this, he tries to sabotage the project to protect Trixie for his own selfish gain. Meanwhile, Candace discovers Trixie's secret passion for comic books and become friends, and Perry has to foil Dr. Doofenshmirtz's evil scheme of using a mind-controlling perfume.
  2. Crocknapped!: Mr. Crocker discovers Phineas and Ferb's invention through Trixie's selfies, and therefor believes the stepbrothers have fairies (when in fact they don't). Crocker kidnaps the boys the next day, and when Phineas and Ferb's friends discover this, they search all over Dimmsdale for them. Even Perry is assigned to find them, which upsets Doofenshmirtz so much that he decided to return to Dimmsdale with Vanessa.
  3. Odyssey into the Mind of Trixie: Wanting to know why she's getting dreams about Timmy, Trixie and her friends use a machine built by Phineas and Ferb to travel into her mind. In the girls' absence, Timmy and the boys go to the Dimmsdale Skate Park, but discover Vicky has regained the Skate Park Queen title. Meanwhile, Doofenshmirtz invites Perry to a trip through town, but gets bothered by Tad and Chad, who want to know his secret.
  4. Double Dating Danger: Chloe enlists Candace to help her plan a double date for Timmy and Trixie, and Phineas and Isabella. However, she mistakenly lies to Tootie about it, and enlists Buford and Baljeet to steer her away from Timmy and Trixie. Meanwhile, Dr. Doofenshmirtz discovers that his rival Rodney is in Dimmsdale, and has Perry and Veronica teaming up with him to avert whatever Rodney's planning to do.
  5. Tri-DOOMvirate of Terror: Rodney and Crocker team up with Remy Buxaplenty to take over the planet Earth, after seizing Fairy World overnight. When Timmy and Trixie are secretly hanging out with their friends, they get captured by the triumvirate's forces, and to top it all off, Remy turns Trixie into his queen. The gang has to undo the mess that Crocker, Rodney and Remy have caused before it's too late.
  • Dakota and Cavendish in Dimmsdale: A Milo Murphy's Law spinoff fanfic, featuring Balthazar Cavendish and Vinnie Dakota. After they ditched a mission to spy on Milo, the two are forced to do missions in Dimmsdale, throughout the events of the Phineas and Ferb in Dimmsdale saga. The two get into odd situations provided by said events, including getting tricked by a genie and joining a parent meeting.

The fanfiction series can be found on FanFiction.Net, as well as Archive of Our Own.


This fanfiction series includes examples of:

  • Affectionate Nickname: Veronica appears to be called "Ronnie" by Trixie, and "Veri" by Vanessa.
  • Amnesiac Lover: Trixie turns out to be this.
  • Artistic License – Linguistics: Considering Eau de Inator is (for the most part) a French term, it should've been called "Eau d'Inator" due to how French grammar works.
  • Big Bad: Each of the parts have their own antagonists:
    • Bet-tle at the Mall: Initially, Trixie is introduced as the antagonist for Phineas and Ferb's plotline, but she becomes a supportive character when Candace's plot comes into play. Both plotlines have Remy as the true antagonist. Perry's plotline's is Doofenshmirtz, natch.
    • Crocknapped!: Crocker in all presented plotlines, much to Doof's chagrin.
    • Odyssey into the Mind of Trixie: Vicky in Timmy's plotline, and Tad and Chad in Doofenshmirtz's. Trixie's plotline has No Antagonist.
    • Double Dating Danger: Tootie is the closest to an antagonist in Chloe's plotline, but is not really a bad guy. Rodney from Doofenshmirtz's plotline, however, is an actual bad guy.
    • Tri-DOOMvirate of Terror: A Villain Team-Up between Remy, Crocker and Rodney. Trixie get magicked into Remy's love interest.
  • Brainwashed: Trixie gets affected by Remy's wish in Tri-DOOMvirate of Terror to fall head over heels for him. In Chapter 13, it turns out that the wish created an evil entity of dark magic that took over Trixie's body and trapped Trixie's soul inside her mind.
  • Cassandra Truth: Naturally, when Candace tried to bust her brothers in Bet-tle at the Mall. In the following two fics, she didn't even get the chance to call Mom.
  • Caught on Tape: After Tootie finds out about Timmy and Trixie kissing, she decides to post a picture of them online, taken by Buford, without his consent. It's not-so-subtly implied to be an Instant Web Hit in Dimmsdale, and Trixie's mom finds about it, too.
  • Characterization Marches On: Veronica started out as a ditzy, gossiping Valley Girl that has been obsessed with wanting to be Trixie and crushing on Timmy. However, after knowing both Perry's and Trixie's secrets, she started to let go of her obsessions and became less ditzy over time.
  • Cloudcuckoolander: Crocker, natch.
  • Cold Iron: Crocker reinvents this in Crocknapped!, to ensure Phineas and Ferb will be unable to escape. In this fanfic, Cold Iron is made from an alchemic formula, repels fairy magic and remains cold even after smelting it.
  • Continuity Nod: References to past episodes of the respective shows are practically everywhere, enough to have its own subpage.
  • Covers Always Lie: Crocknapped did not have Crocker putting Phineas and Ferb in a sack like the FanFiction.Net cover shows.
  • Cowardly Lion: The normally tough Buford became totally afraid of Vicky after she harassed him, but stood up for Timmy anyway and threw her out of the skate park when Vicky demanded a rematch after losing and threatened to kick everyone out if Timmy refused.
  • Didn't Think This Through: Doofenshmirtz made his mind-controlling Eau de Inator in such a way so it only works on valley girls, since they like to use perfumes. The problem is that there's almost none when he first tried it out in the Googolplex Mall back in Danville, hence why he dresses as a perfumer in the Dimmsdale Mall. He admits that this decision made things only more complicated for him.
  • Downer Ending: "Double Dating Danger" ends on this note. Trixie realizes that her life sucks despite being rich, after expriencing a fierce punishment from her mom, with Timmy and his friends as her sole light. Meanwhile, Tootie has to cope with her jealousy to Trixie, her distrust towards Chloe, and her own selfloathing for what she did after finding out about Timmy's date. And before Jorgen von Strangle could give either of them a fairy godparent, he and Binky get caught by Crocker and Rodney, learning that they and Remy Buxaplenty are on the verge of taking over Fairy World and Earth before being sent to Abracatraz... all while none of our protagonists are aware of this.
  • Dream Intro: Done so by Trixie... and Cavendish.
  • Early-Bird Cameo: Both Crocker and Vicky were introduced in earlier stories before they become the main antagonist in another part.
  • Escort Distraction: The plan in Double Dating Danger was to keep Tootie distracted in order for her to not discover that Timmy and Trixie are dating.
  • Everybody Knew Already: Trixie's mom revealed in "Double Dating Danger" to her daughter that she and her husband knew that Trixie liked comic books and video games, despite Trixie not having told them before, because she was afraid they wouldn't approve of it. Her dad is completely fine with it and her mom doesn't seem to have a problem with it, or at least not as much compared to her daughter dating someone the likes of Timmy.
  • Fandom-Specific Plot: Phineas and Ferb get kidnapped, but this time it's combined with Crocker's obsession with fairies.
  • Foregone Conclusion: Anyone who knows the basic premise of Phineas and Ferb, also knows Trixie will lose her bet.
  • Foreshadowing: During Crocknapped, Timmy tells Chloe about the events during Wishology, also believing that Trixie won't be able to recall these memories after they were being erased. Come to Odyssey into the Mind of Trixie, and Trixie and the girls find a memory from those events that cause Trixie to fully remember all of it again.
  • For Want of a Nail: Hadn't Chloe used Norm the genie to find out where Phineas and Ferb are, then Norm's lamp was never found by Dakota and Cavendish. Hadn't they found the lamp, then they never would've thrown it to the wastelands. Had that never happened, then Vanessa wouldn't have found the lamp and tricked Norm to provide more than three wishes. Had that never happened, then the Tad and Chad subplot in the third story wouldn't have existed.
  • Green-Eyed Monster: Even after losing Juandissimo, Remy feels jealous of Timmy for having something that was apparently taken away from him. Eventually, we learn that Remy is jealous of Timmy, because Timmy is Trixie's boyfriend, and Remy has an immense crush on her. This is mostly why he teams up with Rodney and Crocker in Tri-DOOMvirate of Terror.
  • Grey-and-Gray Morality: Applies to Chloe and Tootie. Tootie is presented as an antagonist in Double Dating Danger, but means no harm to anyone except Trixie, wondering what Timmy sees in her. Chloe was not exactly in the right by lying to her, either.
  • Heel–Face Turn: Trixie and Veronica join Phineas and Ferb's group of friends after ''Bet-tle at the Mall'.
    • Norm the genie makes a sudden one to Doofenshmirtz and Vanessa at the end of Crocknapped!
    • Halfway through Crocknapped!, Doofenshmirtz is on the supporting side for the remainder of the series. He still claims he's evil, however.
  • Heroic Bystander: Veronica becomes this when she teams up with Perry to rescue Phineas and Ferb in Crocknapped!
  • Hidden Depths: Trixie's passion for comic books has been explored.
  • In-Series Nickname / Malicious Misnaming: Buford keeps calling Vicky "Yuckster".
  • Inspector Javert: Since Dakota and Cavendish are from right after "School Dance", Cavendish still believes Milo is a counteragent, sabotaging all of their missions. Gets absolutely ironic when Cavendish does NOT believe Trixie is into comics and dresses as a boy when Dakota suggests this.
  • Instant Sedation: Attempted by Crocker when he kidnaps Phineas and Ferb, but subverted and lampshaded when Phineas tells him chloroform doesn't actually sedate people instantly. Crocker then proceeds to slam their heads with a wooden sign he set up earlier.
    • Played straight when Crocker does the same thing to Brick and Savannah. He even Calls Back that it DID work this time.
  • Jackass Genie: Norm, of course. Averted due to Chloe and Vanessa's cunning when they get ahold of his lamp respectively, but played straight when Dakota and Cavendish do.
  • Jerkass: Remy Buxaplenty in Bet-tle at the Mall, and Tad and Chad in Odyssey into the Mind of Trixie.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Trixie in Bet-tle at the Mall.
  • Journey to the Center of the Mind: The A-plot to Odyssey into the Mind of Trixie.
  • Laser-Guided Amnesia: Doofenshmirtz uses Norm the genie's magic to apply this to Tad and Chad, after they discovered said genie was Doof's secret, wrapping up the C-plot of Odyssey into the Mind of Trixie.
    • Meanwhile, Trixie just recovered from this after she and the girls revived her memory of kissing Timmy during the Darkness crisis completely.
  • Leaning on the Fourth Wall: At one point in Crocknapped!, Heinz laments that his interesting schemes get ignored over cliché storylines, almost as if "this was a bad fanfiction written by some amateur writer".
  • The Load: Irving throughout the majority of Crocknapped!
  • Love Makes You Evil: Remy has a crush on Trixie in Bet-tle at the Mall, and is willing to sabotage Phineas and Ferb's project in order to have Trixie win the bet, so he can score a clean relationship with her.
  • Lying to Protect Your Feelings: When Tootie overhears her about the dates she is organizing in Double Dating Danger, Chloe claims she sets up a date for Timmy and Tootie (when it's actually for Timmy and Trixie), in order to not upset her. Candace points out that it's a bad idea, considering what would happen if Tootie did discover the Awful Truth, instead suggesting that Chloe should've told the truth right away. When Chloe realizes this... she then insists they need to keep Tootie occupied for the rest of the day and hope she forgets everything about the date the next day.
  • The Matchmaker: The purpose of the double date in Double Dating Danger is not only to get Timmy and Trixie together, but also Phineas and Isabella.
  • My God, What Have I Done?: Tootie feels guilty for exposing Timmy and Trixie's relationship online in "Double Dating Danger".
  • Nice Job Breaking It, Hero!: Norm the robot sent Rodney and Orville away with the Away-Inator, while they still have the Otherdimensionizor. This gives Rodney the opportunity to meet Crocker and have the two team up to take over Fairy World. Both Perry and Vanessa were seemingly fearing this would happen.
  • "El Niño" Is Spanish for "The Niño": Doof believes "pardonnez-moi" is Spanish for "gifts of the sea". Granted, it SOUNDS a bit like "por dones mar"... which translates to "for gifts sea".
  • Noodle Incident: Chad mentioned a baklava fiasco in Odyssey into the Mind of Trixie. All that is known is that it happene on the last day of school, and Mr. Bickles was involved.
  • Once an Episode: Running gags from Phineas and Ferb aside, each of the main stories have a chat session between Candace, Trixie, Isabella and Veronica, usually near the end of the story.
  • One Steve Limit: Subverted, both Norm the genie and Norm the man robot make an appearance. In fact, Doofenshmirtz interacts with both of them several times.
  • The Paranoiac: Remy has shades of this in Bet-tle at the Mall when he discovers how amazing Phineas and Ferb are at their craftsmanship and imagines what will happen when Trixie loses to them.
  • Put on a Bus: Norm the genie is allowed to vacation in Acapulco when Vanessa is concerned that greedy folks would bother her dad for him.
  • Properly Paranoid: Implied with Phineas in Odyssey into the Mind of Trixie. In Crocknapped!, Phineas and Ferb have the TeleComicPorter 4999 powered on batteries instead of having a plug because they didn't want to raise the electric bills. Odyssey into the Mind of Trixie, however, shows the Mind Machine Neo having a plug, with Isabella theorizing they didn't want any Crocker-esque situation anymore.
  • Recurring Dreams: In Odyssey into the Mind of Trixie, the titular character keeps dreaming about Timmy, however, one of them, being about Timmy getting sucked into a black void, is a pretty recurring one. Turns out it was a result of Laser-Guided Amnesia.
  • Secret Keeper: Not unlike Stacy in Phineas and Ferb, Veronica discovers Perry's secret identity because Doofenshmirtz was shouting his name through the entire perfume department in Bet-tle at the Mall. She decides to keep Perry's identity a secret, after realizing that Perry has to be relocated when she tells Phineas and Ferb... even if it took a while to get it through her head.
  • "Shaggy Dog" Story: Doofenshmirtz's only reason to even get revenge on Crocker is because Crocker's crime is deemed more important for Perry to thwart than Heinz's own evil scheme. After Crocker has been sent to another dimension, it is revealed that Doof's own evil scheme had already been thwared hours ago by Sergei the Snail while Heinz was gone.
  • Shared Universe: This is how the series portrays the two properties being together.
  • Shipper on Deck: Chloe has been called this in Odyssey into the Mind of Trixie.
  • Ship Tease: Between Timmy and Trixie by the end of Bet-tle at the Mall. And then Double Dating Danger gives us The Big Damn Kiss.
  • Shout-Out:
    • When Heinz shows off his Ghost Portalinator in Crocknapped!, he mentions that some guys named Fenton from Amity Park have theorized about the existence of ghosts.
    • Throughout the first few chapters in Odyssey into the Mind of Trixie, the Flynn-Fletchers are visiting Echo Creek. This plot point was first brought up in Crocknapped!, and is later referenced in Dakota and Cavendish in Dimmsdale when Mr. and Mrs. Diaz show up in chapter 4.
    • Gravity Falls has also been referenced a few times in Odyssey into the Mind of Trixie. For example, Rodney compares Dimmsdale being a cesspool of weird activities to a small town in Oregon.
    • Even outside Dakota and Cavendish in Dimmsdale, Milo Murphy's Law is getting referenced from time to time. Since that is a Shared Universe with Phineas and Ferb already, though, it's understandable.
  • Simultaneous Arcs: Basically the premise of Dakota and Cavendish in Dimmsdale, mixed with A Day in the Limelight.
  • Wistful Amnesia: Trixie seems to subconsciously envision a memory of the Darkness crisis from Wishology, which was then recovered in Odyssey into the Mind of Trixie.
  • Whole Plot Reference: Odyssey into the Mind of Trixie contains two: Trixie traveling into her mind with the use of a machine from Phineas and Ferb resembles the plot to Phineas and Ferb's "Monster From the Id", while Timmy challenging Vicky to a skate boarding match is a repeat of "Hex Games" from The Fairly OddParents!
  • The Worf Effect: Elite agents Brick and Savannah have been taken down by Rodney and Crocker when the former two inspect Crocker's house in Dakota and Cavendish in Dimmsdale.
  • You Are Grounded: Trixie gets this punishment from her mom when the latter finds out about the former's date with Timmy. The punishment is excessive to the point that Trixie's entire room gets stripped from her possessions.

How well does it match the trope?
