''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.''

''[[ Shigure's Secret Homosexual Bondage Dungeon]]'' by Evil Asian Genius (Despite the title, this is not a yaoi lemon.)
* Recommended by: [=DrGeoduck=], @/{{Zadia}}, @/{{allboyband}}
* Status: Complete
* Synopsis: Shigure reveals that he owns a Secret Homosexual Bondage Dungeon. Kyo and Yuki find themselves obsessed by the mystery of what this means, and they investigate. Will curiosity kill a cat and a rat?
* Comments: This story is sublimely funny and silly and very affectionate towards the characters. A short and wonderful read. Will make you laugh. A lot.

''[[ The Swordsman & The Gunslinger]]'' by [=DChan87=]
* Recommended by: [=ChiTownBhoy=]
* Status: Complete
* Synopis: An AU fic which takes place in 1880 Arizona. Kyo is the son of a samurai family and works with a gunslinger to bring down an outlaw.
* Comments: While not the absolute best, it makes up for it in its uniqueness for a ''Fruits Basket'' fic. Successfully combining the JidaiGeki and TheWestern, it sets up a friendship between the cannon characters and the OCs, and is more action-based than most ''Fruits Basket'' fics. But apart from the action, it also has the underlying theme of old vs. new; Kyo and Tohru are clearly out-of-place in the WildWest, while his friend is not.

''[[ Reverberation]]'' by Windswift
* Recommended by: @/{{Lotuschan}}
* Status: Complete
* Synopsis: A few centimeters lower, and Hatori doesn't forgive himself. - Chapter 95 Alternate Reality.
* Comments: A "what could have happened" when Akito smashes a vase over Yuki's head. A great read if you enjoy Yuki, Hatori and some quiet introspective angst.

''[[ Shoopuf Basket]]'' by Raine-Weather
* Recommended by: @/{{Animenutcase}}
* Status: Complete
* Synopsis: It's summer! And you know what that means... The Sohma Summer Vacation from Hell!
* Comments: The author has a very unique writing style that makes the story hilarious. She manages to come across as a LargeHam ''in writing'', combined with LemonyNarrator. CharacterExaggeration is rampant and it is wonderful. Because she didn't know much about his character, the author took some liberties with the characterization of Kureno, who becomes a {{Cloudcuckoolander}} SitcomArchnemesis of the Mabudachi Trio. If you've ever wanted to see the Sohma family cross the [[VideoGame/MarioKart Rainbow Road]] to the United States (specifically, North Dakota), a vengeful Akito hijack a ride with Kazuma to follow them, [[TheStoic Hatori]] as the OnlySaneMan and TheChewToy, this is your story. The story is complete at 22 chapters. [[ The sequel]], unfortunately, seems to be a DeadFic at 8 chapters.

''[[ Playing the Fool]]'' by [=NinthFeather=]
* Recommended by: @/{{Lotuschan}}
* Status: Complete
* Synopsis: For Yuki's sake, Kakeru was willing to play the fool.
* Comments: An interesting look into the friendship between Kakeru and Yuki, written from Kakeru's perspective. Kakeru's characterization is spot on, and gives a little perspective into why Kakeru acts the way he does.

''[[ Princess Tohru Series]]'' by chibirisuchan
* Recommended by: chibiaries, @/{{Animenutcase}}, 8lah8lah8lah
* Crossover with: ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'' and ''Franchise/KingdomHearts''
* Status: Dead
* Synopsis: Tohru meets ''[[VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII Sephiroth]]'' in the universe of ''Franchise/KingdomHearts''. [[HilarityEnsues Dancing mushrooms are involved]].
* Comments: The author somehow makes this crossover work, with increasingly hilarious oneshots after the [[ The Edge of the Map]], the fic that detailed Tohru's first encounter with a Final Fantasy VII character. Basic knowledge of the fandoms involved is necessary for understanding this fic, although more in-depth knowledge will help you catch the in-jokes. Tohru uses her skill of {{Talking the Monster to Death}} very well, leading to several {{Crowning Moment of Funny}} and {{Crowning Moment of Awesome}}. For a {{crack fic}} everyone is surprisingly in character.
** [[Tropers/{{Animenutcase}} This troper]] totally seconds. Knowledge of ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'' and ''KingdomHearts'' isn't exactly ''required'', but it ''does'' help. Tohru makes herself a force to be reckoned with not by swinging a Keyblade around (although she does have one) or by killing monsters - she's just herself. Her [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome Crowning Moments Of Awesome]] are both [[CrowningMomentOfFunny hilarious]] and [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming adorable]]. Sephiroth has no idea what he's getting himself into. A great reminder of why Tohru is this troper's favorite character.

[[ Orange Sherbet]] by Millie M. Banshee
* Recommended by: [=Gemini24=]
* Crossover with: ''Manga/{{Bleach}}''
