Stories focused on the family and the friendly relationships of the cast. Plot-focused stories or light day-in-the-life stories. Pretty much anything that isn't focused on romance.

The Terrible Secret of Animal Crossing by Chewbot:
  • Recommended by PanicintheStreetsofLondon, Final Survivor, Max300frk, MichaelKatsuro
  • Synopsis: A dark and twisted replay of Animal Crossing, complete with screenshots and very creepy illustrations.
  • Comments: Also has a few audio sections available.
    • Has it's own page now.
  • shurasan: This is a masterpiece of horror, mind fucks and everything else you could possibly think of. Do NOT read this story without the lights on.

Slice of Heaven by Ysavvryl
  • Recommended by Supercomputer276
  • Synopsis: It is said that when good people die, they go to Heaven. But what happens to good animals after they die? And what happens if a human ends up at the wrong afterlife crossing?
  • Comments: Whilst another alternate interpretation of the series, it is in stark contrast to the above in terms of overall tone. A journey after death into the afterlife is complicated when Loki causes a human to instead go into the purgatory for animals, and the adventures she has in her new home.

Stories focused on the romantic relationships between the cast.

Star Shirt by GenericDude

  • Synopsis: On Christmas Eve, a short confrontation between Mabel and Tom Nook causes the latter to fall into a depression over his harsh past in the city. Seeking solace, he goes to a hill top to view the stars, when somebody appears and forces Tom Nook to confront his past, in the vain hope of restoring the vigour and happiness he lost to the city.
  • Pairing(s): Tom Nook/Sable
  • Comments: A very excellent story that focuses on Tom Nook and Sable's pasts as well as the relationship between the two. The story is well written and it is very heartwarming. A very good read for fans of the Tom Nook and Sable pairing.

Sable's Secret by GenericDude
  • Recommended by Max300frk
  • Synopsis: Both Tom Nook and Sable have settled into a relationship months after their reconciliation. Everything is going well until a figure from Sable's past returns, threatening to destroy her relationship with Tom Nook for good.
  • Pairing(s): Tom Nook/Sable
  • Comments: A 12 chapter sequel to Star Shirt. This is a very well written story that is worth a read for fans of the Tom Nook and Sable pairing and it really brings out a more emotional side to the characters. The story may contain some swearing and a few uncomfortable themes.
