I signed up for Phineas and Ferb offering only female characters (I think it was Candance and Isabella?). It's a fandom which really frustrates me with how often it fails the Bechdel test, so it was really important for me to include as many female characters as possible and focus on their homosocial relationships. (wneleh asked for gen, even though I was really tempted to throw in some Stacy/Vanessa femslash, because guh.) My original plan was to write an angsty introspective fic split into three sections, with about 350 words each from Stacy's, Vanessa's, and Isabella's perspectives. But I quickly realized that their canon characterizations are so totally wrapped up in their relationships to the male characters on the show that I didn't really have anything to write about. Thus I decided to write a slightly more plotty fic (in that there's a problem which needs to be resolved) completely from Stacy's perspective in which all of the girls (except for Candace) have to work together, which allowed for the possibility of growth on Stacy's part and some nice bonding between Stacy and Vanessa and between Stacy and Isbella.
