Title of the Fanfic by Author OR Fic Trope Page, by Author (Link)

  • Recommended by Troper
  • Synopsis: What's the story about? Give here a brief summary of the plot. It would be also useful to point out in what moment of the series the story takes place. If it's a Gen Fic but it has some romantic elements, note here the characters involved too.
  • Pairing(s): If it's a Shipping Fic, list here the pairings that feature in the fic (warn here if it's het, male slash or female slash). If it's a Gen Fic, remove this line. To tell the difference between the two, notice if the focus of the fic is on a romantic relationship or if it focuses on the other aspects of the story. In case of doubt, classify the story according to the genres it's been tagged: the Romance tag for Shipping, absence of that tag for Gen Fic.
  • Tags: If any are known. This would be things like WAFF, Lemon, Dark Fic, any known Crossovers etc.

General Fics

Stories which primarily focus on the normal goings on of the cast.

The Season of Grace Coming Out of the Void by Min Daae

  • Recommended by Parexemple
  • Synopsis: Saetan brings his boys home. Alternate universe where Saetan recovers Daemon and Lucivar before the events of Daughter of the Blood, and tries to help them recover. Oblique references to trauma.
  • Comments: A really good AU focusing mainly on the healing that happens after Saetan rescues his sons. Written with a good understanding of the characters, a very good understanding considering that Lucivar and Daemon are fairly young in this story.

What is Left Undone by Robina Snyder

  • Recommended by Parexemple
  • Synopsis: Saetan rescues Daemon and Lucivar from Terreille when they are still boys, but at what price?
  • Comments: An expansion of “The Season of Grace Coming out of the Void” by Min Daae. Ages the boys up, but also works more on how the BJT world would be different if Saetan rescued his sons.

Innocence of a Queen by Kerie Nightingale

  • Recommended by Parexemple
  • Synopsis: Hundreds of years before Witch walked the realms, Tirrador is in danger of the creeping taint of Dorothea. Adele Ashlyn, a young Queen, must realize her own power and save her home from falling under the shadow of Hayll.
  • Comments: A really good fic that uses none of the original cast. Based solely in the Black Jewel world. The writer displays a real understanding of the world itself and the intricacies of a newly tainting territory in Terrielle.

Crossover Fics

Stories which crossover with other characters or works.

Harry Potter the Warlord Prince by The-Caitiff

  • Recommended by Parexemple
  • Synopsis: Harry meets a trio of new teachers. And learns a few new tricks. But can he survive being tutored by the High Lord of Hell, The Sadist, and Lucivar Yaslana? Can they survive teaching Harry? Crossover with the Black Jewels Universe.
  • Comments: A lot more Harry-centered, but a fun read. Probably a Dead Fic though.

Shipping Fics

Stories whose primary focus is on romantic or sexual relationships between the cast.

Frozen Hearts by Cat Carroll

  • Recommended by Parexemple
  • Synopsis: Karla isn't happy with being assigned a personal guard, but she's more than intrigued with the new immigrant, Jastian. As their relationship deepens, Karla must make hard choices, testing the bonds of love and courage.
  • Pairing(s): Karla/OC
  • Comments: Possibly one of the most popular BJT fanfic. Highly recomended if only because the Romance seems like someone writing people and not stereotypes of lesbians. Actually a good read even if you're not a fan of GL stories.
