Author has written 56 stories for Phineas and Ferb, and Up.
MY AVATAR is from a photo I took on 2/12/12 when I met Phineas & Ferb at Disney's Hollywood Studios at Walt Disney World in Florida. P&F rock!
I have been making up stories since I was old enough to understand the concept of “let’s pretend.” Carrying the “storytelling gene” has been a blessing, and writing has always been a great outlet for me, whether I’m working on postable fics, or just scribbling for my own enjoyment. I’m not a very disciplined writer, and tend to do things in fits and starts, so I learned long ago that I’m usually best off sticking to one-shots. I joined ff.net because I got inspired to start working on some Phineas & Ferb fics, and had nowhere else to put them. I've been having a lot of fun here - frankly, this place is addictive, and the P&F fandom is especially awesome. THANK YOU to everyone who has taken the time to read and respond to my stories.
Disclaimer: Apparently I'm not the only person online using the net-nick "karly05" or similar. I hang out here and on a couple of Disney- and/or Pixar-related forums. If you run into a "karly05" anywhere else, especially one who posts personal real-world info or photos, that's not me. (Oh, and FWIW, I'm a "she.")
Quick Fic-Facts: I'm a big Ferbnessa shipper. I like writing fluff and humor with the occasional poignant touch, and I try to stay in canon and in character. My P&F stories all tie together, so if you read them all, you'll pick up on references and call backs among them. If you read only one of my stories, please read "Good Old Fashioned Fun." It's rated K, suitable for everyone, and takes place in the context of the series, and several of my other stories refer back to it.
I like maps and timelines so, strictly for my own fanfic purposes, I have made some decisions. There's no logical location for Danville, but I've put it in the Upper Midwest/Great Lakes region, and I have decided for my own timeline purposes that the Series Summer takes place in 2006. Vanessa's birthdate is June 15, 1990, and Ferb's is November 17, 1995; they are 5 1/2 years apart in age, and 6 years apart in school terms.
I'll be honest, I've given thought off and on to removing "Arrivederci, Monty." It was a knee-jerk reaction to an unwelcome situation before we'd even seen "Sipping With the Enemy," and a way-too-simplistic approach to breaking them up. I'm leaving it up, though, for a couple of reasons. One, I don't want anyone thinking I have taken down or would take down a story because of a few negative comments, and Two, I don't believe in general in deleting things (that's not a criticism of anyone else, just my attitude toward my own stories). I kind of wish I'd treated the whole thing the way I treat Irving, and just ignored it, but oh, well.
I’ve had a couple of readers ask about the sequence in which my stories take place, so here’s my epic attempt to clarify that. I still recommend reading the stories in the order in which they were written/posted, but if you have questions about where they fit into the overall timeline, I hope this will help.
“Excaliferb! The Missing Coda” and “Rhode Island Fletcher and the Pizzazium Skull” are tied to the P&F “Time Shift” episodes and do not take place within “reality,” so are not included in the timeline.
“His Name Was Matt” is Linda’s recounting of her first marriage. It doesn’t really matter where it falls in the timeline, but this really should be read where it falls in the posted order; there’s a spoiler for it in “Through the Storm.”
Okay, everything below is listed in the order in which it takes place, and broken into smaller groups. (11/2/13 - I rearranged some things in the "Love Nest" section as I'm figuring out where the Candace/Ambrose stuff fits in with the Ferb/Vanessa wedding plans.)
