''[[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/5636103/1/More_Than_You_Know More Than You Know]]'' is a ''SuperMarioBros.'' fanfic written by Pedestrians.
The story starts with Bowser kidnapping Peach ([[SarcasmMode nobody saw that coming, huh?]]). However, instead of putting her in a cage over a pool of lava, he keeps her in the castle, and she's allowed to move freely through it, much to the princess' confusion.
Soon Peach meets the Koopalings, and quickly becomes interested in them. She becomes their caretaker and playmate, and little by little begins to bond with them, as showing interest in their dreams and hobbies. She also notices that Bowser's kids aren't too happy. On the other hand, the Koopalings start to see Peach as the mother they lack.
However, this event turns out to be part of Bowser's sinister plan...

* IHaveYouNowMyPretty: Bowser gets gradually worse about manhandling Peach until [[spoiler:he forces her to sleep beside him overnight]]. This serves as a prelude to [[spoiler:his AttemptedRape]].
* ManipulativeBastard: Bowser's plans to win Peach involved [[spoiler:deliberately letting her develop a bond with the Koopalings, so that he would emotionally blackmail her into having a child with him. However, the child was just a mere excuse so she would never leave his side]]. Of course, Peach was disgusted when she found this out.
