General Fics

Broken Bow by Davner

  • Recommended by Sackett
  • Synopsis: This delves deeply into the older Norse mythology that underlies Ah! My Goddess. Particular focus on Urd.
  • Comments: Recommend reading the triple one-shots: Blessings, Perspective, and Vows prior to reading this.

Wrath by Davner (AU)

  • Recommended by Sackett
  • Synopsis:

Trial By Tenderness by Cevn

  • Recommended by Sil X
  • Synopsis: A Self-Insert Fic which this troper knows to be one of the single longest pieces of written fiction ever (1.9 million words and counting). Complete with Humor, Romance, Drama and Lots of Esoteric Jargon.

The Goddess and the Sky by Will Z

  • Recommended by Davner
  • Synopsis: A cosmic mix-up gives the wish intended for Keiichi to Sora Hasegawa who mistakenly wishes that Belldandy were her wife.

Oh My Goddess: The Twilight Hour by Samuel Jacobs

  • Recommended by: Inlumino
  • Synopsis: Hmm how to describe this, my favorite OMG fanfic of all time? During an attempt to recover an object of appalling power the lives of two (very different) strangers cross those of the Morisato household amid growing and sinister plans of the demon realm; plans which may cost Belldandy her life. As both the demons and Valkyries hunt for what is lost Urd begins her unlikely friendship with a creature that may or may not be linked to the growing chaos. And so Urd’s begins her poignant, bittersweet relationship with what Belldandy describes as “evil” (but is he?) Beneath this the novel is really about love, trust, sacrifice and forgiveness. Faithfully to the feel of the original, the story adds new depth and background about the lives of the “Goddess” characters (Lind in particular). Though a bit more serious than the anime in parts, the story is ultimately the strength in all of us. A good book to curl up with on a cold winter night. Details and Ebook available on website (www.omgterran.com).
  • Recommended by Index. Great Fanfic! A book with a huge amount of heart, excellently written. To my great relief the ‘twilight’ of the title refers only to the sky and nothing else.

Oh! My Brother by Christopher Angel (yes, that's his real name)

  • Recommended by Looney Toons
  • Synopsis: Skuld, on her first wish-granting mission, is dispatched to the home of Chris Angel, a strapping Canadian fellow. Chris spends some time discussing wishes with the young goddess, and forgetting himself, absently says, "I wish I had a little sister like you." Cue the special effects. The next thing Chris knows is he's just been promoted -- to the position of newly-minted god and elder brother to all three Norns -- and the Ultimate Force is already turning his life upside-down to ensure that he moves to Japan and into the Tarikihonganji temple. And when he goes on his own first wish-granting mission, his life gets even more complicated.
  • Comments: One of the great 1990s-vintage A!MG Self-Insert Fics that neatly navigates between SI-as-god (despite it being literally true) and SI-as-Butt Monkey. At turns sweet and angsty both, but without going to extremes that might turn off readers. The author has written several spin-offs entitled God's Toy and Turn the Page. It also has a proper sequel in Drunkard's Walk V: Another Divine Mess You've Gotten Me Into. (Disclosure: the latter was co-written with this very editor and fic recommender.)

Crossover Fics

Hell Is A Martial Artist by Ozzallos (Crossover with Ranma ½ and Sailor Moon)

But when Urd accidentally prompts a deepening of their friendship to levels unexpected by either, the nature of the game changes for both.

Dire Fates by David Tai and Rod M.

  • Recommended by Looney Toons
  • Synopsis: Here's something you don't see every day: A crossover between Hellblazer and Ah! My Goddess. With the three Goddesses of Fate all hanging out in Japan instead of keeping an eye on things in the heavenly realms, the level of chaos in Heaven, Hell and Earth is slowly beginning to increase, and there are a lot of not-so-nice powers around who are eagerly taking advantage of this. Enter John Constantine, who after prompting by Mara and the Phantom Stranger, has to team up with Skuld to figure out how to set things right.

Shipping Fics

Amants and Choix by Davner

  • Recommended by Sackett
  • Pairing: Belldandy/Keiichi
  • Synopsis: From Amants: "When Peorth's past catches up with her, she'll have to decide how much a person can change and whether that change is for the better or worse."
    • From Choix: "People are the slaves of their choices, and while the consequences of Urd's choices prove to be merely annoying, the consequences of Peorth and her lost lover's choices could change Creation forever."

Patiently by Davner (AU-divergence)

  • Recommended by Sackett
  • Pairing: Belldandy/Keiichi
  • Synopsis: What if Belldandy had had to actually return to heaven?

Haloes by Davner (AU-divergence)

  • Recommended by pr0pms
  • Status: Dormant/Dead (Author is taking a break to work on original works)
  • Pairing: Urd/Keiichi
  • Synopsis: Ten years ago, Belldandy was sealed by Hild, but now she's back and looking for Keiichi...

Scordatura by Davner

Onegai, Megami-Sama! by MusedMoose (Crossover, Continuation, Complete)

  • Recommended by Stratagemini
  • Pairing: Peorth/Matagu
  • Synopsis: Belldandy isn't the only goddess granting wishes, when Matagu Shido dials a wrong number and Peorth answers, he knows what his wish is. But things almost never go as they're supposed to, especially around goddesses, demons, and half-aliens. Complete!

Gods Willing by Eyrie Productions, Unlimited

  • Recommended by Looney Toons
  • Pairing: Belldandy/Keiichi; according to the authors other couples were planned, but the story never got far enough to implement them.
  • Synopsis: Keiichi makes phone call, gets goddess, gets thrown out of his dorm, finds new place to live. Same as the original, right? Nope. Not when he's attending Worcester Polytechnic Institute in Massachusetts instead of Nekomi Tech, and his new home with Belldandy happens to be an apartment rented by college students Gryphon and Megazone...
  • Comments: Mid-1990s-vintage EPU trademark self-insert series that got only two installments out in four years before the story's muse cut and run. Not quite as polished as their modern work but still very good in this editor's opinion. While the first chapter is a fairly standard retread of the opening of AMG, it's in the second chapter, "We'll Always Have Boston", that the EPU creative team really shines — in a plot that barely winks at a canon inspiration, Gryphon and Urd team up to rescue Belldandy from Aoshima, who has spirited her off to Boston on false pretenses in order to seduce her and steal her from Keiichi. Definitely worth the read, and mourn that we never got to see more. (Oh, and there are minor crossover elements with You're Under Arrest, which were obviously hooks for future chapters.)

Timidity and Resolveby Davner

  • Recommended by Sackett
  • Synopsis: From Timidity: "As a young valkyrie, Lind is given the mission of defending a young cavalry officer, but the arrival of a love god with his own mission complicates matters, forcing Lind to choose between her mission and her heart."
    • From Resolve: "150 years after "Timidity," Lind makes a life-changing decision. But will her desire end up breaking up Keiichi and Belldandy?"
