doofenperry twitter au!!! is a multimedia chat fic/Social Media AU, also known as the "Phineas and Ferb Twitter K-pop stan AU".

In the alternate universe of the story, the cast of Phineas and Ferb are K-pop fans who have Twitter accounts and are active in K-Pop Stan Twitter. It follows the characters Heinz Doofenschmirtz and Perry the Platypus, who are mutual followers (oomfs) in the BTS ARMY and eventually get together. Unlike many chatfics which mimic social media but are published to fanfic sites, the work was written and uploaded directly on Twitter in the form of manips which showed the characters interacting on Twitter and in text messages.

The fic quickly became extremely popular. While the story was a WIP, the writer occasionally used Twitter's poll feature to let readers vote on what the characters would do next[1][2] and influence the story. Both people who were and were not K-pop fans enjoyed the story – the vast majority of readers, like the writer, were not in Phineas and Ferb fandom. In July 2019, the original Twitter account that the work was posted from was deleted, and the writer reuploaded the full work to a new account with minor edits.[3] Before it was deleted, the original first tweet in the thread had over 3,600 retweets and 5,300 likes,[4] but the exact number - and the total number of interactions on all the original tweets - is unknown.

The story is generally considered to be crack because of its strange premise, but is also acknowledged as being complex in its parody of social media/K-Pop Stan Twitter culture (the writer is a K-pop stan), and its intricate plot. The work is often quoted as a meme. It has inspired many Social Media AU works in other fandoms, and its influence can be seen in the fact that is now more common for these types of works to be posted as long Twitter threads, as well as for them to parody social media or the canon itself in a manner that borders on crack.

The first tweet states:

the cast is on army twit and perry has a crush on doofenshmirtz

disclaimer: this is a phineas and ferb twitter au NOT a bts au they just like bts don’t get it twisted

The thread begins with images of the Twitter account profiles of the main characters, establishing their fandoms, biases, and such.

The works features of large cast of most of the major Phineas and Ferb characters on K-Pop Stan Twitter, mostly in the ARMY (BTS fandom). Perry's bias is Min Yoongi, Heinz's is Kim Seokjin, Phineas's is Park Jimin, Ferb's is Kim Namjoon, etc. Others in the cast stan other popular K-pop groups such as LOONA and Red Velvet. An antagonist humorously stans the lesser know Bang PD[5] before revealing himself to be a fan of Honoka Kosaka from Love Live![6] in Idol Games fandom.

Although the story is a Mundane AU without the fantastical elements of the cartoon's canon, Perry is still a platypus and posts pictures of himself – this goes unaddressed.

The plot follows the course of Perry and Heinz's relationship in detail, beginning when they are oomfs/mutuals who have not interacted much, and developing when Perry sees Heinz's selca (selfie) and thinks he's cute. Over the course of the story, the two vaguepost about each other, are matchmade by their friends, exchange phone numbers and begin text messaging, begin to flirt, deal with the appearance of Perry's ex-boyfriend under a pseud, confess to each other, and begin to date. Perry and Heinz do not meet in real life until the last installment of the story, which is a tweet of a picture of them together.

Throughout the story there are also interactions between the supporting cast, most notably Baljeet and Buford. The sideplot is largely unrelated to the romance and is instead a parody of K-pop stan culture. The characters enthusiastically discuss K-pop groups, idols, and songs, and talk about fandom practices: for example, repeatedly watching Youtube videos and streaming songs to rack up numbers, participating in fandom hashtags, repeatedly promoting their favorite group, and using stan language such as "skinny," "flop," "oomf," etc. While these habits of K-pop fans are sometimes tongue-in-cheek, they are widespread, and part of the humor of the story is the lampshading of the extreme enthusiasm of stans.

Reception

Simply mentioning any variation of "Phineas and Ferb BTS stan Doofenschmirtz/Perry the Platypus K-pop Twitter AU" generally elicits responses of "what does this mean," "the WHAT," "why," etc.

The phineas and ferb stan twitter au. baljeet told me to stan loona and who am I to disagree with him[33]


For some fans, the doofenperry twitter AU was their first introduction to kpop stan slang, and/or they forever associated the AU with certain words and phrases used in it.

hi theres a really cursed phineas and ferb kpop stan au going around and i had to look up so much vocabulary u guys are too much[34]

i cant take stan twitter language seriously im too new to the community and every time i see oomf or wig i have vivid violent flashbacks to the phineas and ferb doofenperry kpop stan twitter au[38]
“i twote what i twote” was such an iconic and powerful quip but it’s not from an influencer or anything, it’s from a phineas and ferb svt stan au or maybe it was a bts stan au? i confuse those two groups a lot[39]
HEY GUYS. I JUST LEARNED THAT OOMF MEANS ONE OF MY FOLLOWERS. I LEARNED THIS FROM THAT PHINEAS AND FERB TIMELIME AU. WHAT THE FUCK. NO ONE TOLD ME. IM LOSING MY. MIND. OOMF HAS A MEANING??? ITS AN ACRONYM??[40]

Many fans have commented on the lasting impact that the doofenperry twitter AU had on fandom and particularly on the prevalence of social media AUs on Twitter.

u ever think abt the doofenperry twitter au and just think. Wow. that rly made social media aux a popular thing. a doofenperry kpop stan au Did That.[44]
i really believe the doofenperry twitter au shaped twitter culture[45]
[SER1REIGEN]

I hate/love how the doofenperry twitter AU pretty much started the twitter AU craze. I never saw a twitter au before that but then after it finished I started seeing everyone making twitter AU’s for their ships/fandoms.......an absolute legend[46]

[hvklkling]

the value of the things the doofenperry bts twt au brought to humanity is insurmountable[47]

[SER1REIGEN]

Doofenperry twitter au walked so the rest of stan twitter could run

'im right fucking here.' and 'WIG!!'... will there ever be anything more iconic? doofenperry twitter AU invented putting the @'s in the bio. they invented modern romance.[48]
every time i read a mediocre chat!fic i think about jude's twitter thesis abt what makes a good chat!fic. they rly went galaxy brain when they said homestuck and the doofenperry twitter au were the only good social media stories[49]
