Author has written 1 story for Zootopia.

Mini update for Friday 18th August: YKYLM weekly update slightly delayed due to new job, moving house AND pregnant wife. Life likes to happen all at once, it seems!


Hello, I am Vulpes. 31 years old male, originally from the UK.

Making my first real foray into the wonderful world of fanfiction, thanks to an unhealthy obsession with Zootopia and the OTP that is WildeHopps.

I have no plans to delve into other fandoms as yet (expect a lot of Zootopia fluff from me!), however I am a massive fan of the following:

  • Zootopia
  • Disney's Robin Hood
  • Star Wars
  • Dungeons & Dragons (game)
  • (more to come as I remember)

  • Currently working on:

    You Know You Love Me - Romance/Fluff/Comedy/Angst/Crime/idontknowwhat. I originally did this as a one shot just to delve into the subtext of the titular scene from Zootopia. However, doing so seems to have springboarded me into writing a fully fledged WildeHopps fanfic! Lots of ideas to develop this in terms of underlying plot (expect Crime, Angst, Hurt & Comfort), all while supplying several heaping doses of WildeHopps Romance/Fluff. May eventually progress to more mature scenes, but currently just extremely fluffy :) Trying to update at least once a week.

    Ideas in the works:

    Real Life is Messy - Romance/Angst, based on real life experiences. A delve into a more established WildeHopps pairing, as they deal with the complications that life, love, career and family bring. Boxes and Funnies will occur. Intended as a hard M-rated story. Miiight roll this idea into YKYLM as a much later set of chapters.

    Renaissance Fair Rhinos - When famed actor and charity event organiser, Ryan Redfurred, takes ill under mysterious circumstances, it's up to our plucky duo to go "undercover" at the zootopia annual charity LARP event to discover what's gone rotten in Nottingham. Zootopia-Robin Hood cross-over idea. Crime, Romance and Comedy. T-rating.


    Lastly, I want to give a shout out to a few other authors on this site whose works have inspired me with their Zootopia works. In particular:

    Three Months a Fox by WildeNick (A fantastic delve into the movie's 3-month time skip that inspired the first chapter of YKYLM)

    A Bunny CAN Go Savage by Fox in the hen house (Soooo fluffy, compelling plot, and hilarious author notes that I shamelessly emulate)

    Earning The Badge by BunnyRock (Possibly the best characterization of Nick I have ever read, and mammoth chapters FULL of awesome)

    Please do check them out if you are enjoying my fluff. You can find links to them and a boatload (a shipload? A WildeHopps shipload?) of other great authors/stories in my favourites!

    The Translation of Dawn Bellwether by Gabriel LaVedier reviews
    Prison has changed nothing for Dawn Bellwether. Not really. Her heart is full of bitterness and hate, now focused, laser-like, on Judy Hopps and Nick Wilde, the relationship her scheme created. She would do anything to break them apart. And a being of great power hears that, and comes to try her, to test the strength of her 'anything.'

    Earning The Badge by BunnyRock reviews
    Nicholas Wilde sighed "You know, if this was a movie, they'd just cut from me saving the day at the museum to me getting the badge. Cut out all that tedious, messy, inconvenient hard work and training that wouldn't look good on film." Nick wants to join the ZPD but real life is messy: a criminal conspiracy, having to get a job, and work out what his relationship with Judy is? Messy

    Judy and Nick had a plan to deal with Bellwether, it was a good plan, a great plan, it even worked.

Now Judy and Nick have to learn to live with the aftermath and most terrifying of all each other.
