Ben Drowned/Fanfic Recs

Everything About Fiction You Never Wanted to Know.

Proof that the remaining 10% is worth drowning for here.

These are recommendations made by Tropers for Ben Drowned fanfics, all of which have to be signed to stay on the page. Feel free to add a fanfic of your own to the list, but remember to use the template found here.

You can also add to the current recommendations if you want. Refrain from posting Conversation in the Main Page though; that goes in the discussion page.

Status guide:

  • Complete: Exactly What It Says on the Tin.
  • Ongoing: The fic is being updated on a regular basis,[1] or has received an update after a significant absence.
  • Dormant: The fic has not been updated in a fairly long time (several months to a year or more) but the author has not pronounced it dead.
  • Dead: The fic has not been updated in several years, or the author has specifically said that it will not be updated.

Note: Fics listed as Dormant or Dead will be changed to Ongoing if/when they receive updates. If you see a rec with a blank status, and you're familiar with the fanfic, please add the correct status.

Bentruth.rtf by PERSONAshou

  • Recommended by Progeny Ex Machina
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: TheTruth.rtf from BEN's point of view. Uses Alternative Character Interpretation to paint him as little more than a bored Troll. It has a sense of humor and pokes fun at the original document, though good-naturedly.

The Ryukaki Connection by Rixaka

  • Recommended by Progeny Ex Machina
  • Status: Dead
  • Synopsis: "College student Kayd Hendricks just hit the jackpot and by jackpot, he means an affordable house. But is this a stroke of good luck or some demented twist of fate?" It's a good interpretation of the events preceding the Ryukaki arc, but the tone of haunting solitude really makes it. Everything is that much creepier because you get the feeling he's completely alone, even when other people are nearby.

Your Turn by The Lilac Pilgrim

  • Recommended by Progeny Ex Machina
  • Status: Dormant
  • Synopsis: "Jadusable, trapped in the Majora's Mask cartridge, fights to keep his sanity. BEN has other ideas." An excellent take on Jad's imprisonment with his tormentor.

CleverBEN by The Lilac Pilgrim

  • Recommended by Progeny Ex Machina
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: Jadusable's first Cleverbot conversation with BEN wasn't quite what we saw in his notes. Involves (non-graphic) attempted cybering, which manages to be funny and creepy at the same time.

The Kayd Series by an unknown author

  • Recommended by Progeny Ex Machina
  • Status: Presumably complete
  • Synopsis: An epic Troll Fic. This excerpt speaks for itself:

Kayd 1: kayd an teh orcacrhd
