Years after the series ends, Trixie decides to visit her childhood acquaintance Timmy. The two reminisce about when they hung out together in "The Boy That Would Be Queen". Timmy comes out as trans to her and the two soon become close.
Here By Accident, Staying On Purpose is an AU on the cartoon. Fairy Godparents are fictional and, as a result, Timmy dressed up as a girl for different reasons than in canon. It's implied that it was more than just a few times.
The title from the comic stems from the episode that inspired it, "The Boy Who Would Be Queen". In it, Timmy finds Trixie crossdressing at a comic book store. Trixie tells Timmy that she's in "[t]here by accident".
Here By Accident, Staying On Purpose provides examples of:
- Adaptational Nice Guy: Vicky was Chloe's perfectly ordinary babysitter. Vicky being a Babysitter from Hell was just exaggeration.
- Adaptational Mundanity: Here By Accident, Staying On Purpose is a comic based off The Fairly Oddparents. Timmy, known by her preferred name "Chloe", never had Fairy Oddparents.
- Ambiguous Situation: It's vague whether Chloe never had godparents or whether she's just forgotten about them.
- Alternate Universe Fic: Timmy/Chloe didn't really have fairy godparents. She's also a trans woman in this comic.
- Ambiguous Gender Identity: Trixie might be transmasculine. As a kid, she'd play a "game" with Chloe where they'd pretend to be the opposite sex while hanging out together. As an adult, Trixie dresses in an androgynous manner and has implications of gender dysphoria.
- Bi the Way: Trixie casually mentions being bisexual. Chloe was a Closet Key for her.
- Childhood Friends: Downplayed with Trixie and Chloe. They weren't close as kids but they hanged out. As adults they reunite and become close.
- Childhood Friend Romance: Trixie and Veronica stayed close into adulthood.
- Everyone Is Gay: Trixie and Veronica are a couple, Timmy is a trans woman (who is likely attracted to women), and Vicky is a trans man.
- Most Writers Are Writers: As a child, Chloe used to draw comics about having two fairy godparents.
- Mythology Gag:
- Chloe's pet dog is Sparky.
- Chloe's preferred name is a reference to the character Chloe from the show.
- Timmy is a trans woman who changes her name to "Chloe" in the third chapter.
- Vicky transitioned and now goes by "Micky".
