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.

What Do You Mean to Me? by Badger Wolf

  • Recommended by: Tiggerific
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: Twelve years have passed since the Scream Extractor incident, and Sulley has been visiting Mary ever since. But one day, while reliving past memories both happy and painful, a slight slip-up causes the two to ask themselves one very important question: What do they mean to each other? Oneshot. WARNING: This story is fluffier than Sulley's fur pelt.
  • Comments: It's really that fluffy. And adorable. And probably the best fic where Sulley visits an older Boo. Highly recommended.

Angela's Pet Monster and it's sequels by DarkraixCresselia

  • Recommended by: Alyssa Macki
  • Status: Complete
  • 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.

Randall's New Take On Life by Smokeandbones

  • Recommended by CMR Rosa
  • Status: In Progress

An Unlikely Bond by Crazybird 101

  • Recommended by Tropers/Kinola
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: An AU where Randall has already befriended Boo. But what happens when he learns that someone has brought her into his world. Now he must reunite with his friend and bring her home. All the while something sinister is hiding within the Company. Something that could change Monsters Inc forever. T for safety.

Scream is Power by MrsDecepticonQueen

  • Synopsis: Elisa Gibbs' younger sister, Mary, has entered the monster world. She has to team up with Randall Boggs to find her.

Be My Pal by Artsywriter1992

  • Recommended by TheJayman49
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: Takes place two years after Inc. When Sulley and Mike tell the story of how they met in college to the now four-year-old Boo, she discovers some truth about Randall and feels sorry for him. But when Randall finally comes back from the human world, Boo wants to be the first friend to welcome him home. Will it all work out?
  • Comment: A truly adorable story of Randall being redeemed through The Power of Friendship. I know that might sound a bit cliché but, given Randall's sour attitude and Boo trying to grasp the concept of how and why he's like that (which makes sense since she's still a kid), it works.

Reasons by Rose DiVerona

  • Recommended by N8han11
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: One-shot, post-movie. "Sometimes, we are called to do things for reasons we don't fully understand; not at first." Mike fixes Boo's door.

Stories focused on the romantic relationships between the cast.

Family by Blue-with-purple-polka-dots

  • Recommended by: N8han11

  • Synopsis: Hearing a less than pleasant exchange between Waternoose and Randall makes Sulley more than a little concerned. But will offering the abrasive Randall friendship and support really change anything at all? Because sometimes family is what you choose.
