Fanfic Recs / Monsters, Inc.

Proof that the remaining 10% is worth going to the Scream Extractor for here.

These are recommendations made by Tropers for Monsters, Inc. fanfics, all of which have to be signed to stay on the page. Feel free to add a fanfic of your own to the list, but remember to use the template found here.

You can also add to the current recommendations if you want. Refrain from posting Conversation in the Main Page though; that goes in the discussion page.

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.

Angela's Pet Monster and it's sequels by DarkraixCresselia
  • Recommended by: Alyssa Macki
  • Synopsis: When Randall is adopted by a lonely teenager named Angela, he swears to himself he wouldn't go soft like Sullivan. Will he keep his promise after he and his owner become best friends?
  • Comments: A good series, though some complain about the pairings, I think they fit better for it. Randall's development is natural and the writings good, considering it was one of the author's first long-ish stories. The series holds up and stays mostly true to itself, not deviating from it's established cannon. Also, the inclusion of another MI characters is clever and well done. Now has its own page.
