"Why do you fight me? We're one in the same. You should be ruling along side me! Not this."
"What makes you think Stitch want to do that?"
"Why wouldn't you?"
"What?" Emperor 626 was bewildered by Stitch's question.
"What do you mean, am I happy?" Emperor 626 yelled at Stitch. "I'm the unquestionable emperor and god of the pacific islands! These people worship me!"
"But… are you happy?" Stitch asked again.
"Are you happy?" Emperor 626 reversed the table on Stitch. "Are you happy living in a pathetic stilted house, being forced to pretend you're a dog, with people who can barely make ends meet, much less provide you with all the luxuries you could ever want?"
"Ih." Was Stitch's quick and instant response.
"Because Stitch have family. They love me, and I love them. It is good. Yeah, it's good, but it is too late, for you to understand."
Emperor 626 growled under his breath. "It sickens me to think that if things turned out differently, I might have become you."
This was inspired by another wonderful story by WatsonSword called Empire of the Pacific
OH MA GOSH THIS STORY IS SOOO FREAKING AWESOME!!! NO LIE, IT IS SO ACCURATE THAT I'VE READ IT LIKE 8 TIMES!!!
WatsonSword if you're reading this, I want you to know that I praise you so much for your perfect story. Never have I read anything like it, and I love it so much that I had to do this for you!
I’m pretty sure that half of you won’t even bother to read it, so i’ll summarize it for you guys.
Lilo’s life seems to be perfect. She has saved the cousins, has an Ohana, a home, and a best friend who is always there for her. But even though she is happy with her life, she still is having a hard time accepting the death of her parents.
What if Lilo and Stitch go back in time and save Lilo’s parents, only to realize that with that little change their current time has been affected, and is now in the hands of a very powerful emperor, named 626.
With Lilo’s parents alive, Lilo and Stitch never met. Without her in his life, Stitch was never taught to be good, and this is where we see the darker side of 626.
If Disney ever decide to take a risk to make a rated R movie, and wanted to show Stitch's real dark side, this story would be perfect. It really shows how important Lilo's existence is to Stitch's life. Without her, Stitch would have never been turned good. We seemed to have been focusing too much on Stitch's cuteness, and forgotten that Stitch was originally created to be evil and destroy anything he touches. Well, this story sure does prove how scary Stitch would have been if things had turned out differently. This really makes you understand the movie better, you realize the consequences and gruesome monster Stitch really could have been.

If you like really good fanfictions, then may I recommend an incredible piece of work called "Simon's Experiments." It is a Lilo & Stitch fanfiction about Stitch's youngest son Simon, who, despite having not inherited Stitch's incredible strength, indestructibleness, or acute senses, has the most brilliant mind the galaxy has ever seen. The story starts off a little slow, but the character development that follows more than makes up for the minor lull in the beginning. It does have quite a bit of violence, and very mature themes. Also, Lilo doesn't feature too heavily in the story, as Simon is the main focus. But all in all, it is honestly one of the best stories I have ever read.

Please read it and tell me what you think.
That was exactly the way I felt. The characters that were featured were very well developed. Like, seriously, some of the best character development I have ever seen. Unfortunately, Lilo was, in your words, "just there." I totally agree with this perspective, and feel that she should have had a much more prominent role in the story. There is a sequel, called "Simon's Experiments II." It is significantly longer than the first story, and it features new characters. However, it is incomplete, and it suffers from the same lack-of-Lilo-ness. I also recommend this story, simply because it further develops the characters, and even goes into other character POVs! But, like I said, it is incomplete, so unfortunately a resolution to the final situation is not going to happen. I have dabbled in the possibility of writing the conclusion myself, but I don't want to tick off the author if he ever does come back. :/
Anyway, I'm glad to hear that you enjoyed the story!
