Top Four Fanfiction Recs

Further recommendations available on my Fanfiction Google Doc here.

1. Of Sheep and Battle Chicken - Link

One of, if not the best piece of fanfiction I have ever read. Of Sheep and Battle Chicken, despite the absurdity of its name is realistic, dark, gritty, compelling, action-packed, well-written and bombastic in every way it needs to be. A complete retelling of the story of the Mass Effect trilogy (with one completed sequel and one on-going sequel) through the lens of a former military vet that completely revitalizes every aspect of the story in ways you cannot imagine. If you think you know how this story will go because you played the games, think again. There will always be at least one major change that blindsides you with how awesome it is.

2. Limpieza de Sangre - Link

The most heartbreaking piece of fanfiction I have ever read, hands down. This story absolutely destroyed me, to the point of numbly focusing on its unexpected ending for the better part of two days. I reached out to friends who despise fanfiction to commiserate with them on the emotional effect this story had on me. A Harry Potter AU set after the events of the graveyard, focusing on the most interesting depiction of the Harry-Voldemort relationship that has ever been put to print with a female Voldemort. I cannot recommend this story to you enough, but I must also warn you; If you invest yourself in the relationship between Emily and Harry in any way, do not let the story convince you it's going to have a happy ending.

3. One Good Turn Deserves Another - Link

Written in the early days of RWBY before the main plot of the show had even been revealed by the undisputed master of RWBY fanfiction, Coeur Al'Aran, this is, for my money, the best written piece of Knightshade on the market. Not content to just depict an unorthodox ship in a blindingly well-written light, the author went a step further and wrote a compelling, nail-biting, suspenseful epic filled with tragedy, success, angst, joy and an excellent depiction of the relationship between Yang and Ruby while he was at it. Even now, knowing perfectly well what actually happened to all these characters in the show, the last few chapters of this story will truly make you believe that the tragedy is inescapable.

4. Delenda Est - Link

The original fanfiction that captivated and dominated my attention, this is probably still my favorite fanfiction of all time, if for no other reason than nostalgia. To this day, I still reread it once a year, every year. It remains, without a doubt, the best written piece of Harry/Bellatrix fanfiction ever (do not come at me with Wind Shear, it is ~not~ a Harry/Bellatrix story), telling the tale of a time travelling Harry Potter who finds himself in the midst of the first war against Voldemort, unwillingly aided by the daughter of House Black. Even if the very notion of this ship turns you off or confuses you, I urge you to give this one a try. You won't regret it.

OSaBC II : That Which Cannot Die by LogicalPremise reviews
My AU retelling of the events in ME2, with a completely new take on Cerberus, the Shadow Broker, and the Collectors. Examines the themes of what exactly constitutes death and life, the line between revenge and self-hatred, and how small amounts of light can shine in every darkness. Not a happy ending. Includes my takes on Overlord and LotSB. Rated M for language and violence.

Harry Potter and the Prince of Slytherin by The Sinister Man reviews
Harry Potter was Sorted into Slytherin after a crappy childhood. His brother Jim is believed to be the BWL. Think you know this story? Think again. Year Four starts on 9/1/20. NO romantic pairings prior to Fourth Year. Basically good Dumbledore and Weasleys. Limited bashing (mainly of James).

Cat got your tongue? by VaingloriousHound reviews
Harry successfully manages his animagus transformation. And that's about all he's able to manage. Daphne's insistent attention seems entirely unmanageable for him and his poor heart. Slight AU.

Butter by Imyoshi reviews
Outside of being a loyal companion and trustworthy friend, Yang Xiao Long hardly thought much of Jaune Arc. He was a noodle. She liked him. He was nice. Simple and easy! So, why did he have to throw the whole status quo into whack by getting some ridiculous haircut and not shaving for a week? What? No! He didn't look or acted like a younger version of dad! Stop saying that, Ruby!

Harry Potter always knew he'd have to fight in a Wizarding War, but he'd always thought it would be after school, and not after winning the Triwizard Tournament. Worse still, he never thought he'd understand both sides of the conflict. AU with a Female Voldemort.

One Good Turn Deserves Another by Coeur Al'Aran reviews
Jaune wasn't exactly Blake's type, but giving him a hand was the least she could do after he helped her out... it didn't have to mean anything - no matter what Yang implied! Also would Ruby cut it out with the knowing looks, I'm just returning a favour! Blake x Jaune realistic romance, focused on their times at Beacon Academy.

My AU retelling of ME1 in a darker, sinister universe. Much darker and more realistic views of the SA and the Citadel Council, a more dangerous, involved Cerberus, and a more conflicted Saren and Benezia.
