A while back I made a post about how Linda's cannon young voice is voiced by the same person as Vanessa, Dr. Doofenshmirtz' daughter.
But I just watched the episode where Linda came back for a concert and Laurence became Max Modem.... And Linda said she lip synced. And that even when she was famous she lip synced it all.
So a new theory~
Vanessa's mom, Charlene Doofenshmirtz, was the person who actually sung Lindana's songs! Since Vanessa wasn't born yet when Lindana was popular.
That's it. I don't have anything to build off this. But I hadn't seen anyone suggest this yet so-
Oh actually it could be part of the Dr. Doofenshmirtz is father to Phineas theories somehow. Because with Charlene and Lindana in the same industry, especially with Linda lip syncing... Could create some interesting scenarios.
Jenny: What if the person who named Walkie Talkies named everything?
Stacy: Pregnancy tests are Maybe Babies
Eliza: Socks are Feetie Heaties
Candace: Forks are Stabby Grabbies
Stacy: Defibrillators are Heartie Starties
Eliza: Nightmares are Dreamy Screamies
Candace: Stamps are Lickie Stickies
Vanessa: *annoyed* You are disappointments.
...Man, going straight for the jugular, aren't we?
OK, fair enough.
1.) What OTPs in your fandom(s) do you just not get?
See, the easier answer would be Hiro/Megan since, as a Hiro/Karmi shipper, we're "enemies" or whatever. But I get Megiro, because that is an option for him (perhaps only for Aunt Cass).
I know that people were shipping Wasabi/Chris for a hot second, but that was completely one-sided and didn't make sense.
So...I guess I'd have to go with Honey Lemon/Go Go.
And even saying that is a bit of a stretch, because I do get it. They're roommates. They're best friends. They do have touching moments with each other. But I never really imagined them as a pairing.
Tumblr really likes them as a couple, so I've had to familiarize myself with that. I know there are many people in the fandom that like them too.
I don't know. Maybe it's more on Go Go's side than HL's side, but it just...doesn't do it for me.
Just my opinion.
4.) Do you have a NoTP in your fandom? Are they a popular OTP?
...Is there a NoTP in the Big Hero 6 fandom?
I think the closest thing we have to a NoTP is Hiro/Go Go or Hiro/HL, and I think that's mostly because of the age difference (Hiro is 14, and both Go Go and HL are assumed to be 21).
Hiro/Go Go, from what I've seen, is actually quite popular on fanfiction websites (relatively), but yeah, that's a no for me, dawg.
People may not like Hiro/Karmi or Hiro/Megan, but at least they're close to his age.
5.) Has fandom ever ruined a pairing for you?
I can't say that any pairing has been ruined for me in any of the fandoms I've been a part of (Phineas and Ferb, Teen Titans, Big Hero 6, or otherwise). I know that seems like sort of a copout answer, but I legitimately haven't had anything ruined.
I'm usually deadset on my pairings, so other members of fandoms trying to say I'm wrong (even if I do end up being wrong in the endgame) don't really bother me.
I would say the closest things to a ruining for me was back in the Phineas and Ferb days, when I was part of the Ferb/Gretchen side, and everyone and their mother was a Ferb/Vanessa person. And I guess Ferb/Vanessa ended up "winning" in the end, but I never really liked how they resolved that.
But at the end of the day, it wasn't really an issue. I had my canon Baljeet/Ginger, so I could live with it. XD
Inspired by the line “I grew up hearing your evil scheming down the hall” in Vanessa’s song: Not So Bad A Dad. The series will focus on Vanessa, but may have a few stories in Perry & Heinz's perspectives.
For as long as Vanessa could remember, her father, Dr. Heinz Doofenshmirtz, had always been evil. She was used to hearing him build, monologue, and explode from a few rooms down the hall.
Thinking back on it, that wasn’t the only thing she remembered from her dad’s weekends.
Hail Doofania! Is one of my favourite episodes because it shows how much of their identities and worldview teenagers attach to their clothing.
That’s why when Vanessa and Candace accidentally switch clothing, the other characters’ story arcs flip too.
There’s the obvious matter of Phineas and Ferb building an -inator, and saying how it will “cover the entire Tri-State area” with a rainbow.
Then there’s Doof building something ridiculously large that Vanessa considers “proof” to finally “bust” her dad for being evil.
Then there’s the entire thing disappearing indirectly because of Phineas and Ferb’s -inator; it caused a fisherman to get distracted and blow Doofania’s inner tube out.
There’s also the more subtle matter of Perry’s collar, which is essentially a trap that prevents him from doing what he needs to do.
Ultimately, Perry is the one who destroys Phineas and Ferb’s -inator by hitting the self-destruct button, with the boys questioning why they put in a self-destruct button in the first place- something that happens with Doof quite often.
There’s also the parallel of Doof saying “Look at who decided to show up”, which is basically a version of “There you are Perry”
What I found relatively more interesting was that the boys’ goal was fundamentally misguided, as Isabella meant that she’d never seen a unicorn before, not a rainbow.
This is an interesting parallel, which I think points towards Doof’s mission to take over the Tri-State area being misguided, and that what he actually wants is love and acceptance.
Another equally interesting observation is when Vanessa complains to her friend about her clothes being switched, saying “how many evil scientists’ daughters do you see...”, but being cut off by seeing that her father was up to something.
This is something that we usually see Candace do- complaining on the phone when she suddenly sees her brothers doing something bustable.
But what intrigues me is that Vanessa associates her clothing with being an evil scientist’s daughter, that she perhaps felt it was more appropriate to be goth if her father was already “evil”.
This hints towards how closely interlinked our identities are with our parents’, especially when we’re younger.
We also see Candace becoming more overtly confident with herself, something that is not usually seen, and implies that wearing different clothing makes her feel different too.
Overall, it’s an episode with a lot of fun and introspection and I love it.
