Proof that the remaining 10% is worth dying for here:

These are recommendations made by Tropers for Dirty Pair Fan Fics, 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.

Do warn when a fanfic may head into sexual[1] or non-canon territory. Some people just don't like it, and as we all know, Shipping is Serious Business.

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.


Authors and Websites

The works of Ryan Matthews.

  • Recommended by Binaroid
  • Ryan Matthews posted the first English-language anime fanfic on Usenet, Big Bang, in June 1991. In the decade following, he and Larry Mann managed to make themselves and the Dirty Pair household names in the fanfic world. Matthews retired from writing fanfic in 2002, but he is not forgotten. Warning: Various incarnations of Marty Stu do show up in most of his stories - reader beware.

Undocumented Features, by Eyrie Productions, Unlimited

  • Recommended by Looney Toons
  • The ultimate Mega Crossover fanfic cycle, Undocumented Features began as a Dirty Pair fanfic with a few other crossover elements thrown in. It was directly inspired by the work of Ryan Matthews, and eventually Larry Mann joined the EPU team. To this day, some twenty years or so later, Mann remains a part of the collective, and Kei and Yuri remain active parts of the story world.

General Fics

Stories focused on the family and the friendly relationships of the cast. Plot-focused stories or light day-in-the-life stories. Pretty much anything that isn't focused on romance.

Experiment 101-E by Larry Mann.

  • Recommended by Binaroid
  • Synopsis: The tale of 3WA trouble consultant Deirdre's partnership with the experimental bioroid Trouble Consultant, Shasti.
  • Comments: This is one of the first fanfics released on the Internet about the Dirty Pair—specifically, Adam Warren's Amerimanga version. This is almost a textbook example of Draco in Leather Pants for villainess-to-be Shasti, but this also has the effect of adding more depth to her fall.

Should Old Acquaintance Be Forgot by DB Somner

  • Recommended by: SAMAS
  • Synopsis: Kei and Yuri arrive at a space station to find it completely lifeless... except for a monster from Kei's past. Crossover.

Shipping Fics

Stories focused on the romantic relationships between the cast.
