Proof that the remaining 10% is worth defying a murderous bear for here:

These are recommendations made by Tropers for Over the Hedge 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 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. Refrain from posting Conversation in the Main Page though; that goes in the discussion page.

  • Synopsis: After a mishap involving a heist to refill Hammy's cookie stash, RJ and Hammy are captured by scientists and taken to an animal testing lab. The story revolves around their attempts to escape, as well as the other Hedgies' attempt to rescue them. Pairings are the two canon ones (Penny/Lou and Tiger/Stella), Ozzie/OC, OC/OC, as well as past Tiger/OC.
  • Comments: The fic also has a sequel, Only a Dream, which is also completed. The fics are darker than the original movie, containing, in the story synopsis's words, action violence, mild torture and some language for the first story and heavy violence, angst, and nightmare scenarios (including character death) for the sequel. However, neither oversteps a T rating. Both fics contain OCs, although the story still mainly focuses on RJ and Hammy, with some exceptions. Also note that while the first story can be interpreted as only friendship, the sequel does ship RJ and Hammy.

How well does it match the trope?
