Proof that the remaining 10% is worth dying for.
These are recommendations made by Tropers for Bubblegum Crisis: Tokyo 2040 Fanfics, all of which have been signed. After a few samples, you will be able to judge whether you might be interested in a certain 'fic, based on who recommended it.
Feel free to add a fanfic of your own to the list, but remember to use the template found below. Make sure you sign your recommendation! No-name recommendations may be deleted at other tropers' leisure. Do warn when a fanfic includes sexual situations. Some people just don't like it, and as we all know, Shipping is Serious Business. Likewise, warn if it may head into non-canon territory.
Discussion of the recommendation is welcome on the discussion page. As such discussion is important, do remember to add the discussion page to the watchlist, if need be.

- 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 Trigger Warnings, etc. This is also where you would put character names with Characterization Tags if doing so would be equally indicative. ("uber!Harry" for Harry Potter, for instance.)
- Comments: If you want to say something more about why you're recommending the fic, but please, keep it brief. We don't want Conversation in the Main Page.

- Synopsis: Billionaire net.journalist Benjamin Stark and his personal physician/bodyguard Megazone go to MegaTokyo to investigate a mysterious urban legend—the Knight Sabers. But before they're even in the city they get confirmation that the legend is real... and Stark finds himself up to his neck in their private war.
- Comments: A Continuity Reboot of a long-abandoned EPU project called (Gryphon and Zoner Get) Hopelessly Lost, BGC:TIA is a classic EPU self-insert, although fifteen years later Gryphon has greater skill to draw on and more twists to throw at readers, including mixing and matching elements from both classic BGC and Tokyo 2040. The addition of Iron Man to the blend, in a manner that is both true to the source but completely unexpected, turns what was once a comedy series into something more akin to a near-future technothriller. Although far from complete at only three installments, it's definitely worth a read.
Stories whose primary focus is on romantic or sexual relationships between the cast.
