Fanfic / The Call at Night

Go To

"The Call at Night" is a Phineas and Ferb fanfic.

Years have passed in Danville and the Summer Vacation Gang's lives are pretty normal... which includes the inability of Isabella to tell Phineas how she feels. But one desperate midnight phone call might change all that.

The Call at Night spins a story about love in the middle of dark times, trust in those close to you and what happens when secrets stop being so secret.


It is complete and has a sequel "All I Feel Is You" which can be read here.

"The Call At Night" contains examples of:"

  • Adult Fear: Isabella is kidnapped in the middle of the night by a man seeking to cause her harm. Those words could send shivers up any parent's spine and Mrs. Garcia-Shapiro is a wreck for almost the whole story.
  • Battle Couple: Phineas-2 and Isabella-2 as well as Candace-2 and Jeremy-2. Both kick major butt during the attack on Doof-2 tower.
  • Cold-Blooded Torture: Done to Isabella by Doof-2. It's all but stated that by the time they get her home, she was dangerously close to death and could have died had she not be saved.
  • Foregone Conclusion: Of a happy variety. Since we see Phineas telling the events of “The Call at Night” (Disneyfied of course) to his and Isabella's 2 daughters as a bedtime story, we know he'll eventually get his memories back in “All I Feel Is You”.

  • If You Kill Him, You Will Be Just Like Him!: Isabella says this to Phineas when he's about to kill Doof-2 for kidnapping and torturing her.
  • Noodle Incident: Played for Drama with the car accident in “All I Feel Is You”. We don't know any of the details; just the aftereffects, such Phineas's amnesia.
  • Not-So-Final Confession: Isabella's phone call to the Flynn-Fletchers includes the fact she loves Phineas. However, Doof-2 kidnaps her before she can finish the thought and she is later saved.
  • Oblivious to Love: Phineas remains this for several chapters, despite having started to develop feelings of his own towards Isabella. He doesn't learn until he overhears the Fireside Girls talking about it.
  • Official Couple: Ferb/Gretchen, Jeremy/Candace and eventually Phinbella. The last one hits a stumbling block when Phineas ends up with amnesia in “All I Feel Is You”; they work through it though.

  • Right Behind Me: How Phineas finds out about Isabella's feelings for him; the rest of the Fireside Girls are discussing it and don't realize he's behind them despite Milly trying desperately to warn them.
  • Shipper on Deck: Everyone in Phineas and Isabella's group of friends is one for the two of them.
  • Traumatic Haircut: Doof-2 forcefully cuts Isabella's hair. It's explicitly stated that it's not the haircut itself that's traumatic; it's what it represents: Isabella's complete loss of control of her life at the hands of someone who will do absolutely anything to her and her friends if it gets him what he wants.
