Fanfic / We Are Only Animals

Go To
An alternate take on Beastars, where Legosi attacks Louis outside the theatre instead of Haru. This has surprising ramifications, the main one being the two subsequently falling in love.

It can be read on AO3 here.

We're only Animals contains examples of:

  • Adaptational Sexuality: As is to be expected given the premise all but requires it.
  • Ascended Extra: Gon, Dom, Kai, Bill, Pina, and especially Louis feature more prominently here than in Beastars.
  • Aw, Look! They Really Do Love Each Other: Many many examples.
  • Break the Haughty: Louis completely drops most of his original prejudices upon nearly being killed by an actual vicious wolf, and in swift succession being locked in his father's mansion for several months. Being rescued by Legosi in both instances almost completely destroys any of the barriers he formerly had towards him at first.
  • Consuming Passion:
    • Taken Up to Eleven with Riz, who takes a disturbing amount of glee in planning to devour Bill. Louis exploits this by kissing him as a distraction.

    • Louis ends up having Haru's problems with sex, except somehow worse. He actually unconsciously attempts to cut himself on Legosi's fangs on two occasions, understandably horrifying Legosi.
    • Gouhin chalks Legosi's attraction to Louis up to this, and is utterly astounded to be proven wrong.
  • Death by Adaptation: Els, who is slaughtered by Riz while presumably attempting to discover Tem's killer.
  • Demoted to Extra: Juno and Haru stand out a bit in this department.
    • Subverted with Gouhin. While it seems like this is heading this direction when his first scene is relegated to an off-page incident, he appears late into book one to treat Legosi.
  • Lovable Sex Maniac: Louis fits the bill easily.
    • Bill and Pina decide to hook up and wind up having sex within the hour. It barely slows down from there.
  • Matchmaker Crush: Pina supports Louis/Legosi, but expresses having crushes on both of them at different points. Granted one of them was before they became an Official Couple.

  • Rescue Romance: Legosi. TWICE.
  • She Knows Too Much: part of the reason why Riz killed Els because she attempt to discover Tem's killer.
  • Shipper on Deck: A surprising amount of characters are down with the Louis/Legosi pairing, most notably Haru.
  • Signature Scent: If Legosi doesn't think Louis Smells Sexy, he certainly thinks this.
  • Slash Fic: Yes.
  • Trail of Blood: Legosi leaves his house at night to retrieve some cough medicine. When he doesn't return for a long period of time, Louis finds him at the end of one of these.
  • Wham Line: "I'm sorry, it was Els. You may know her from the drama club."
