Space Monkey (Part 1, Part 2) by Magicman001.
Synopsis: Minka wasn't always the happy, energetic monkey as Blythe and the pets know her today. Every pet has their past, and some are more painful than others...
Comments: A decently-written Dark Fic that explores the traumatic backstory of Minka Mark. A fair bit of warning: there's a small bit of Body Horror in the first chapter, and there may be more to come. (The fanfiction has been rewritten and is posted in two parts on DeviantArt, the author's username being Magic Man 001 on Deviantart).
Synopsis: Takes place right after "Books and Covers", after a comment from Vinnie, Blythe realise there is something she has to do, and someone that is in need. Blythe discovers that someone seemingly your opposite, can be similar, and there might be more to people than meets the eye..
Synopsis: Sunil has a recurring nightmare where he is visited by the ghost of a pet. By helping her, he uncovers a dark, decades-old secret the Littlest Pet Shop has been hiding.
Comments: A fanfic I myself wrote that got some pretty positive feedback. It's fairly dark and centered around Sunil Nevla being able to communicate with ghosts. Romance isn't the main focus but it has some Sepper moments near the end. I created a tvtropes page for it here.
Synopsis: Even though everyone thought the whole issue with Sugar Sprinkles making everyone fall in love was resolved, Josh is still under the effects of the spell. Despite that, Blythe still has new embarrassing episodes with Josh. But then Blythe starts to feel that something is going awfully wrong - why is she starting to purr when Josh is around?
Comments: TVTropes Page. On Fanfiction.net, User JoshuaP notes in his review that "I have to say, this is one is my favorite lps fanfiction, the story and the plot were really good. The characters were great, the drama and decisions Blythe had to go threw were really well thought out."
Pairing: Vinnie/Sunil, with other pairings lightly scattered throughout.
Synopsis: Russell has had quite enough of Vinnie and Sunil's ever-so-close friendship, and vows to get them together if it's the last thing he does. But instead of carrying out a simple plan, he finds himself wrapped up in a disaster only the Littlest Pet Shop pets could cause.
