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.

Monsters Vs Escargantua by David Hines

  • Recommended by bookwormgal
  • Status: Complete
  • Summary: See the title. Much like the film, there is more character goofiness than actual story.
  • Comments: Everyone is perfectly in-character and the tone matches the movie perfectly.

Dollhouses by Rakeesh

  • Recommended by bookwormgal
  • Status: Complete

Stories focused on the romantic relationships between the cast.

God Help the Outcasts by Wordmangler

  • Recommended by bookwormgal
  • Status: Complete
  • Pairings: Susan/Cockroach
  • Summary: A more realistic retelling of the movie with the focus on Susan's emotional turmoil after her life is changed for ever. How does she cope with this extraordinary thing that has happened to her? Gone is the slapstick, and much of the comedy, replaced with a focus on character development and careful factual research to make her story and her emotions seem as real as possible.
  • Comments: Loads of world-building, character development, and examinations of what being turned into a giant would actually be like. It also has sequels Love I Can Possess (Complete) and To the Edge of Night (Complete).


The Dinobot and The Giantess by HVK

  • Recommended by bookwormgal
  • Status: Complete
  • Crossover with Transformers
  • Summary: Ginormica finds a crashed alien robot tyrannosaur named Grimlock that proves quite alive, and more importantly, extremely eager for a fight.
  • Comments: Short, but amusing.

A Different Childhood by futureauthor13

  • Recommended by bookwormgal
  • Status: Complete
  • Crossover with Megamind
  • Summary: What if Megamind had landed in the prison, but couldn't stay there? What if the government took him, and put him in an underground prison where he met a familiar group of monsters? Total AU/Crossover fic
  • Comments: Come on, you know you wondered what would happen if they locked Megamind up somewhere other than the jail from the movie.

Monsters vs Aliens: Legend of the Snow Queen by Wordmangler

  • Recommended by jimbodeek
  • Status: Dormant; last updated September 2018
  • Crossover with Frozen (2013)
  • Summary: When word reaches Area 52 that a snow monster has appeared in the tiny kingdom of Arendelle, Susan and the other monsters are mobilized to help track her down. Seen as monsters by the rest of humanity, Ginormica and the Snow Queen discover that they have much in common, and each can help the other deal with her power and the fear it inspires in others.
  • Comments: Set in the same Universe as Wordmangler's work, "God Help the Outcasts" and its subsequent sequels, featuring much of the character development and world building from said works. With some work, the author seamlessly integrates the world of Frozen into that of Monsters vs. Aliens with ease, taking the characters and setting of the former movie and modernizing them so that they fit with the present-day setting of the latter.
