A British Werewolf in Danville is a 2011 Phineas and Ferb Gen Fic, written by a user/troper named FossilsDaDaDa, who also wrote First Contact a Gemini Story.

The story follows Phineas, Ferb, and his friends on Halloween night. In a true Phineas-andFerb fashion, Ferb is given , as they think, the coolest costume in history by being transformed by genetic engineering into a 200-pound green werewolf. Unfortunately, Ferb looses his mind shortly after Trick-or-Treating is over and begins to attack. Using Jessie's cleverness, Candace's strength, and Perry's venom, the gang tries to turn Ferb back to normal.

Its reviews have been almost universally positive, some even considering it one of the best fics ever written for the franchise.

Tropes used in A British Werewolf in Danville include:
  • Action Dress Rip: Jessie tears the hem of her dress to run from the werewolf.
  • Adults Are Useless: Major Monogram, literally the only adult who gets any screen time in this story, is the complete opposite of helpful.
  • Becoming the Costume: One of the most literal examples in history.
  • Big Badass Wolf: Were Ferb, once he looses his mind.
    • Silly fool, that's not how you spell Were Candace
  • Big Friendly Dog: Were Ferb, before he looses his mind.
    • And after he becomes sane again.
  • Big No: Phineas lets one out when his brother falls off the edge of the multi-level parking lot.
  • Darker and Edgier
  • Deadpan Snarker: Baljeet gets this gem:

Baljeet: "Um, yes. Why do I need to go with Buford?"
Phineas: "Because Buford needs you for his costume."
Baljeet: "Oh, goody, I cannot wait..."

Candace: "If anybody’s gonna hurt this kid, it’s me!"
