Go To

The Blooming Lily is a The Loud House fanfic by Terra Zeal. The fanfic revolves around Leni Loud getting pregnant after a one night stand at a party. With the help of her family and especially Lori, however, she's able to get through her pregnancy while only being fifteen.

As the title suggests, The Blooming Lily is a five-chapter fanfic based on the idea that Lily is actually Leni's daughter and not her sister.

This fanfic contains unmarked spoilers. You Have Been Warned!

This fanfic provides examples of:

  • Adaptational Intelligence: Leni is smarter here than she is in canon. Her airhead tendencies are explained as her pretending to be dumb because she wants others to feel better about themselves.
  • Alternate Universe Fic: The fanfic takes place in a universe where Leni is Lily's mother and not her older sister.
  • Child by Rape: Downplayed, as Leni is underage when she has a consenting one-night stand with Lily's father and becomes pregnant as a result.
  • Family Relationship Switcheroo: Lily is passed off as her grandparents' youngest child shortly after she's born. Rita even goes so far as to wear a prosthetic bump when Leni is further along in the pregnancy.
  • Good Girls Avoid Abortion: Leni shoots down the idea of getting an abortion when Lori asks her what she'll do if the pregnancy test turns out positive.
  • Meaningful Name: Lily's name comes from the surprise lilies (named so for their seemingly magical ability to sprout flowers after the foliage has died off) planted at Aunt Ruth's house.
  • One-Night-Stand Pregnancy: Lily is conceived after Leni has a one-night stand with a college-aged boy at a party.
  • Teen Pregnancy: Leni is only fifteen when she ends up pregnant with Lily.
  • Related Differently in the Adaptation: Lily is depicted as Leni's daughter in this fanfic rather than her much younger sister like in canon. This also makes Rita and Lynn Sr. her grandparents and the other Loud siblings her aunts and uncle.
