Proof that the remaining 10% is worth mutating into an alien for here:

These are recommendations made by Troper's for District 9 Fan Fics, 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.

Do warn when a fanfic may head into prawnsexual or non-canon territory. Some people just don't like it, and as we all know, the line between kink and squick is both thin and Serious Business.


You can also add to the current recommendations if you want. You can do it by leaving a review, or by just adding your name to the recommendations. Refrain from posting Conversation in the Main Page though; that goes in the discussion page.
