Cats/Fanfic Recs

Everything About Fiction You Never Wanted to Know.

Proof that the remaining 10% is worth dying for here:

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

Mysterious Ways by Delphicoracle Cat

  • Recommended by: Bombalurina
  • Synopsis: After Rum Tum Tugger and Mistoffelees become mates, Mistoffelees unexpectedly becomes pregnant. At first the story focuses on how they deal with the pregnancy and then the plot advances when Macavity learns of the pregnancy and is very interested in someone who can conceive magical kittens.
  • Pairings: Rum Tum Tugger/Mr. Mistoffelees (slash, obviously)
    • I've seen people review it and call it "the most believable m-preg out there" and I agree 100%. For me, this is the ONLY m-preg I've been able to read and I love it. The pregnancy itself has a believable explanation, Mistoffelees and Rum Tum Tugger are completely in-character (Misto doesn't start acting like a weepy girl) and the pregnancy details are so realistic that I wouldn't be surprised if the author has has kids herself. The tiny little details and the way everyone is kept in-character is amazing. The plot starts to thicken when Macavity shows up and unlike most Cats fics, Macavity is portrayed as someone who is truly intelligent and frightening, not just a mindless thug. The last few chapters are edge-of-your-seat tense and the birth scene is, again, completely realistic. The author is supposed to write a sequel, though it hasn't been posted yet. I can't recommend this fic enough!
