General Fics

Best Workout Ever by Aether Paw

  • Recommended by Feranard Coldheart
  • Synopsis: What happens when a Dark Souls player gets warped into Darksouls? Really, really bad things.
  • Comments: Yes, it's a self-insert fic. But the author tells it pretty realistically by giving his Author Avatar realistic reactions to the events in the game. On top of that, he adds some very funny moments without taking away from the seriousness of the Dark Souls world.

Old Soul by The Extreme Piercing

  • Recommended by Thagomizer
  • Synopsis: More than once, Quelana wondered whether Nemeta was a trick played upon her by the Flames of Chaos, a beguiling, infuriating illusion that would lure her to oblivion.
  • Comments: An excellent fic. Has some incredible world-building and twists on canon which all make perfect sense to the point of being Fridge Logic, some truly hilarious moments, and ending that is absolutely breathtaking. It's not without issues, namely in one severe out of character moment by the protagonist in order to drive the plot, but that should not dissuade you from reading this work.

Light and Dark by Prince Handsome

  • Reccommended by Dead Brain
  • Synopsis: The journey of the Chosen Undead, from the Undead Asylum all the way to the Kiln of the First Flame.
  • Comments: While the synopsis can be somehow deceiving about the content, this fanfiction is a collection of snippets concerning numerous Undead through Lordran. Most of them are short, yet keep the game's flavor well.
