Meanwhile, Rat isn't sure what to make of the strange new Wild Wooder who is neither weasel, stoat, nor fox, and he plans to keep it that way. Maybe. Wild Wooder Mole AU

    Summary

    Mole huffed in frustration, wishing that he had Ratty’s brains. Then he could figure what was going on, he told himself as he tumbled out of the kitchen cabinet. He froze as he hit the floor—hadn’t he just been in the living room? With a sinking feeling in his stomach, he turned around to look behind him and was faced with a gaping hole through the wall.

    “Oh, dear,” he gasped out, scrambling to his feet. He closed the cabinet and opened it again in a panic, as if that would make it go away.

    It didn’t.

    ~~~
    Mole is worried about Ratty and as a result tunnels through the wall.

    Summary

    Ratty glanced over the edge uneasily and then to their parachute. “The glue’s still wet,” he pointed out. Toady inspected the papers closely.

    “The air will dry it on the way down,” he decided flippantly, “now come on!” Ratty glanced over the edge again, the doubt in his mind increasing with every moment.

    “Oh, come on! Are you too frightened?” his friend said. Something akin to anger sparked inside of the young rat.

    “I’m not frightened of anything!” he proclaimed defensively.

    ~~~

    Ratty learns a valuable lesson about the phrase, “I’m not afraid of anything.”

    Summary

    A oneshot in which Mole meets Toad’s mother. It’s a bit of a surprise for several reasons, really – not least of all because he had been fairly certain she was dead. It wasn’t the first misunderstanding he’d encountered since leaving Mole End, but it might just have been the weirdest. / Predominantly inspired by the 2017 musical.

    Summary

    Okay, it was the Red Lion Inn and it wasn’t meant to be a joke (except the universe had other ideas) and if Badger had anything to say about it, no one would ever know the punchline. // The manner in which Badger learnt about the tunnels beneath Toad Hall wasn’t nearly as dignified as he made it out to be. Not that he’s about to tell the next generation that. Oneshot, centring around the dad trio.

    Summary

    "Oh my friends, my friends, forgive me that I live and you are gone." / Badger wasn't always the solitary animal that the Riverbank had come to know, but in the aftermath of two funerals he is tired and he is alone and he retreats into the safety of his sett. Or, at least, until a lost mole and water rat find him again. / A fleeting oneshot focused on Badger and the loss of Rat Senior and Toad Senior. Set predominately before the musical.

    Summary

    Summary

    There were some key social differences between an underground animal and a Riverbanker, but it had never occurred to Rat that relationship milestones might just be one such example. He probably shouldn't have realised this in the middle of refereeing a squash match though. / Set in the 2017 musical.

    Summary

    “What is that?”

    “Without looking,” Ratty replied, his voice muffled, “I’d say the twins are out and about on the Riverbank.”

    An AU where Portia and Portly Otter are twins. Currently just a ficlet, may eventually become a series.

    “A journey is splendid, there’s so much to learn. But once it has ended, you know you’ll return.”

    The journey to Mole End breaks Ratty’s heart a little bit (not that he wants to admit it).
