Update 2021: I've noticed significant traffic on my profile for a while now so I figured maybe some of you are regularly checking my list to see if I added new goodfics with my seal of approval. Well not to leave you dry, lately I've been mostly reading on Spacebattles and some of those fics aren't posted here so I'll put in some titles for you to google( I think outside links are censored so I won't bother).
Task Force 43 - basically the only Star Trek fic I like, Thin Veneer was alright but author loves writting about fanatical aliens in every fic and it gets annoying
Project Artic Circle - Canadian Star Gate
Stellar Reich - Guess who runs the SG
Sceptered Moon - Brit SG
Dread Our Wrath - ASOIAF SI
Screw The Rules I have Escalation - funny Worm x Yu gi oh, I'd say it's more a comedy than crack, I really don't like crack, FU Varga
The Warcrafter - Worm x Azeroth, a bit too much sunshine and rainbows but still a goodfic
Aenys, King of Dreams - ASOIAF SI
Ridire Corcairdhearg - SW SI messes up Sith plans by splitting the Clone Wars era Galaxy into factions
Don Dresden, Founder of Hogwarts - title is self explanatory, I'm not actually super into this one but I recognise good quality
OMFG I'm the Chosen One - good SW SI
The Rules of Acquisition - alt history later Mass Effect crossover, SI changes 19th century USA, posted on Questionable Question - to my disappointment I didn't find any other good longfic there nor on Alt history
Super Minion - original on RRL, better than Worm but what isn't...ok on the level of Mother of Learning but with humor
Path of Ruin - SW SI that actually becomes an evil Sith, not an antihero
Cruel to be Kind - SI creating multidimensional empire
Dire Worm - original mad scientist drama vilain meets Worm, very funny and very good, originals are on my plan to read list now
Spirit of The Gamer - Gamer fic done right, it's light hearted same as any Stewart92 fic, MC gets powers yes but is kinda still weak in the grand scheme after 10 pages in reader mode. TBF it's only been a month or two so that's actually fast growth and Hollows are simply strong so author balanced that, his main thing is making others strong including the supporting characters who were left forgotten in original like Chad. The only thing I mind is that MC is bi, luckily nothing happens and fic is really long so if it bothers you just ignore those bits that don't even make 1% of the story.
Empire in Green - Planeswalker druid takes over Madagaskar in Worm with a plan to take over the world, creating near utopia, Panacea power up, it's a bit boring until Madagaskar is conquered as character development only comes after. Fic abandoned during the start of Africa conquest but still worth a read.
Fate Denied: A Star Wars SI - extremely long fic, a bit incosistent but still very good, featuring Ranulph Tarking and Jedi order split
Lest a Monster I become - multicross similar to Cruel to Be Kind, but without MC making blunders in the beginning, much more cautious MC, biotech and AI subjects(makes sense, loyal unlike various factions of humanity other SI's constantly have to herd and watch for betrayals)
Skywalker for Senator - surprisingly good, not realistic but fun
Plant to read(or at least give them a try):
The Eagle's Flight -RRL

Sanitize - FFNET

I'm just a reader here with what I consider a very selective fanfic list.
Apparently this collection gathered some interest so I thought to write about what goes in there and why.
1. The conditions are 100k words and ongoing or completed (there are a couple of exceptions). I won't however read fics that satisfy the minimum word count but are more than 2 years in the making thus making them snail updaters.
2. Generic and unrealistic fics are out of the question, and by unrealistic I mean character behaviour, not the fact that it is sci fi or fantasy.
3. Normally when filtering for new fics to read I don't go beyond the first page of results that's sorted by most favorites as I found the fics grow progressively worse. There are some underrated gem-fics there but they can be found by checking up on the authors who got on the first page and actually deserve to be there.
4. I'm a fan of original Dragon Ball(Z) and Bleach and somewhat for Fairy Tail but apparently those fandoms do not gather much of great authors. Possibly they are not good fanfic material anyway, for example since Dragon Ball is all about fighting, its fics will be boring with every fight basically : "punch kick punch punch kick blast blast kick blast"
With Fairy Tail, most fics repeat canon which is incredibly boring to read about again without seeing the flashy anime.
Of course canon is based on the good guys getting beaten only to in turn beat the bad guys with a high chance of turning them good with power of friendship.
Fairy Tail magic battles are not much different from Dragon Ball, they are spam. Everybody have just their own single magic and they keep spamming it, spells do not have any mysticism or wonder usually found in fantasy novels.
5. You won't find me reading pure family/friendship or family/romance or adventure/angst/hurt.
While I have nothing against those genres, I'm only looking for serious action type novels. Not that I'd read some trash with OP character overshadowing everybody else and making them look like NPC's, drama is necessary even for action stories.
6. Despite my list, I'm not a harem or lemon enthusiast. I outgrew harem back in my anime phase, which was yeeears ago.
7. Fics that were once on my list : Heroes Assemble! ; Dial ; The Spider, Filfy Teacher, Wild Wolf
First two fell flat after so many chapters and I grew bored of Marvel canon. Some fics simply don't have canon that can keep your interest after you've read several fictions of it. One Piece belongs here and so does Fairy Tail, srsly I don't wanna faking see another East Blue or Paradise arcs ever again.
The Spider was awesome for the first ~25 chapters, but then it turned into one of the worst trash fics I've read.
Or that's just my disappointment speaking, romance disappeared, MC turned into constantly sighing manhwore who does almost nothing with his future knowledge and gets beaten by not so great vilains despite him having a dozen powers and weapons. Let's not forget that author refuses to learn English or have his chapters proofread.
Filfy Teacher even had some okay fluff in the beginning and founding a new faction and magic school that combines different magic was interesting. Eventually fluff got too much and you can't skip it as the plot went shit too, big group of side characters following Harry everywhere and meet the family gags.
Wild Wolf I completed but I decided it doesn't deserve a place on this list. Ranma is gradually regaining his powers and while the fic has some good stuff, in the end it's nothing special. Still cringing over Stargaryen.
8. Fics that are more of honorary mentions : The Muggle Among Mages, Assimilation
The first I stopped reading, it's not bad but I lost interest after a pause. Assimilation I'm not that keen on continuing, also not bad but kinda meh.
It is unfortunate fact that vast majority authors of power fantasies think that harem is one of the basics of the genre.
There are of course authors that are not that good and luckily for them use harem as a crutch to replace the difficult romance and character development aspect.
If you don't see a popular fic of a fandom I follow and wonder why it's not here, it's probable that it doesn't deserve a mention and I don't wanna waste time explaining why HP and Methods of Rationality or Natural 20 are overrated or why something else is crap.
