Proof that the remaining 10% is worth creating an alien experiment for here:

These are recommendations made by Tropers for Lilo & Stitch Fan Fics, all of which have to be signed to stay on the page. After a few samples, you will be able to judge whether you might be interested in the 'fic, based on who recommended it. No-name recommendations will be Zapped!, dehydrated into pod form and stored away in Jumba's lab. Nobody, 'ohana or otherwise, would back up the rec or its one true place on the web. 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 romantic or non-canon territory. Some people just don't like it, and as we all know, Shipping is Serious Business.

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

  • Recommended by Rise from Your Grave
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: Lilo finds herself missing her parents again as she remembers the night of the accident that killed them, which she was actually in. She and Stitch use Jumba's time-traveling surfboard to go back in time to that night and she has Stitch rescue them in order to have them alive with her newly-extended 'ohana. However, what she does not realize when she and Stitch go back to the present was that, as a result of saving their lives that night, she and Stitch never met after he crash-landed on Earth. Since she never needed to go to the animal shelter, she does not meet Experiment 626 there and he does not get rehabilitated, and the duo of Lilo and Stitch are now in an Alternate Timeline where 626 has become a cruel and commanding emperor of a Polynesia under his control and his influence is expanding. After the time machine gets confiscated, stranding the duo in this horrible timeline, they must work with a dwindling resistance in order get the board back and save the world from the clutches of Emperor 626.

The Fire of Futures Past by Euphonemes

  • Recommended by Rise from Your Grave
  • Status: Dead
  • Synopsis: The entire Pelekai ʻohana of humans, aliens and experiments gather around a campfire for a special family fun night planned by Stitch. However, he didn't plan on anything for them to do save for eating a lot of snacks, so Lilo suggests that they should tell campfire stories, all revolving around a thought she had: "What If? Stitch never crash-landed on Earth?"
  • Comments: As the synopsis states, the characters tell unique campfire stories based on the aforementioned "What If?" idea, interspersed with many interruptions from the others as the night goes on. The author does a good job keeping everyone in-character while they narrate their tales, with some less-developed characters (mainly the experiments) receiving believable expanded characterizations in the main story. The tales that the characters spin are really supportive of the little blue alien, which show just how tight the 'ohana would most likely have become since the end of The Series if this was canon. The fic itself strongly feels like a possible special post-Leroy & Stitch episode of The Series that invokes the spirit of the original film, especially with Leroy getting a Heel–Face Turn in the fic, becoming accepted into the 'ohana. There have been eight campfire stories in the fic told so far by (in order) Nani, Bonnie, Leroy, Gantu, Slushy, Heckler, Jumba, and Cobra. The author is also accepting suggestions (via PMs or reviews) for other ideas as long as they fit the basic theme of the "What If?" question.

    Although the author tried to keep the fic updated on a monthly basis, his busy life (which undergone some major changes) caused the story to undergo quite a Schedule Slip. The last chapter so far was released on April 8, 2016 (which came after the author missed March), and the story has not been updated since. He had stated in June that he remains dedicated to the story and was likely going to change the chapter format to multi-part segments (instead of the "several-thousand words in one sitting" chapters that was established earlier) to allow for more frequent updates, though nothing came of it. He since switched to working on a Zootopia fanfic that he began in late April 2016, the same month when the last TFoFP chapter was published. Although he did restate his intentions to return to TFoFP eventually, he hasn't updated any of his stories for at least six months as of April 2018. Despite all these things however, what is there is still worth a read nonetheless.

The Only Thing Worse Than Dying by DaveNevius

  • Synopsis: Ohana means family, and family means no one gets left behind. At least that's what Stitch used to think, but a new revelation may challenge that old notion.

Loki, Lilo, & Stitch by TardisIsTheOnlyWayToTravel

  • Recommended by bookwormgal
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: Loki fell from the Bifrost. He landed on the Hawaiian island of Kaua'i. He's not the first non-Midgardian to end up there, as it turns out.
  • Comments: There are four stories so far, include a rewrite of The Avengers with Loki and Stitch on the side of the heroes. Definitely worth checking out.

Monsters Versus Aliens by acoolusername

  • Recommended by Belphegor
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: Based off the Tumblr post: Lilo and Boo become room mates in college. They become fast friends, and Boo doesn't shy away from Stitch and Lilo doesn't think Mike Wazowski is a weird name for a fish. Everything is going smoothly, until one night when something sneaks into their dorm, and Stitch disappears into the closet...
  • Comments: The author took inspiration from this Tumblr post about Lilo meeting Boo and ran with it. The result is a 22,000 one-chapter fic (not marked complete, but the story stands alone) that does perfect justice to all characters and both worlds (humans' and monsters'). Great story.

Alternate Universe

An experiment’s rise by Adrastos.

  • Alternate Universe - Canon Divergence
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: Created illegally and supposed to be a monster, Experiment 626 wants to do good in the galaxy. But how’s he supposed to do that when half the Federation thinks he’s an abomination? And amid all that, how’s an Experiment supposed to cope with a vengeful creator hell-bent on unleashing anarchy?
  • Tags: Worldbuilding, Politics
  • Comments: Stitch escapes with more language ability and a bit more pacifistic identity, making his character different and his path completely new. It's a really well-written experiment with worldbuilding in the Lilo and Stitch galaxy, take a look if you're up for something unique.
