Authors and Websites[edit | hide | hide all]

  • An excellent author of not only Loveless stories/one-shots, but of a few other animes as well (though this troper has only read the Loveless ones). Although most of the stories center around Ritsuka and Soubi, one of the stories (A Day for Couples) also focuses on Natsuo X Youji and Yuiko X Yayoi. And then Truth Begins Now centers around Ritsuka (and Soubi) bringing Misaki (Ritsuka's mother, to those unaware of her name) to a mental hospital and the hardships he faced in dealing with this decision. The rest are mainly Ritsuka X Soubi. All of the stories are beautifully written and provide depth and details and all those good things a good story should have.

Writing Addiction

  • Recommended by Golden Dragon 326
  • Another great author who has multiple stories of Loveless (among other things) that this troper enjoyed reading. All of the stories are focused on Ritsuka and Soubi. If you read Bookwrm389's stories, then I strongly suggest reading these stories next.

General Fics[edit | hide]

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.

Shy by Bookwrm389.

  • Recommended by Golden Dragon 326
  • Pairing(s): Ritsuka/Soubi
  • Synopsis: A short story which happens after Soubi accidentally walks in on Ritsuka after he just came out of the shower.
  • Comments: It's meant to be funny and is quite cute. Rated T for the mention of nudity, but nothing is explicit. It's also excellently written.

Reversed by Writing Addiction.

  • Recommended by Golden Dragon 326
  • Pairing(s): Ritsuka/Soubi
  • Synopsis: Ritsuka often wondered if it was wrong to use his brother's Fighter. But one evening, he and Soubi discover something that might make it okay.
  • Comments: A story featuring the joyous event where the introduction of the Loveless fighter is no longer an issue. And Soubi didn't even have to kill anyone.

A Cloud In My Sight by Aoi Umi Oppalene.

  • Recommended by Sana Mae
  • Characters: Yuiko and Ritsuka (can be read as a pairing or as just friendship.)
  • Synopsis: Life's tough questions reach some children most poignantly - And for the young, a heavy burden is difficult to hide. Ritsuka and Yuiko, on a school camping trip, stumble into considering the value of their existences. Would they have it any other way?
  • Comments: A beautifully written and not-quite-fluffy oneshot.

Shipping Fics[edit | hide]

Stories focused on the romantic relationships between the cast.

Anything for You by Yuu-chi.

  • Recommended by Golden Dragon 326
  • Pairing(s): Ritsuka/Soubi
  • Synopsis: Just as the click of his bedroom door locking at night was a sound so familiar to Ritsuka, the noise made as Soubi peeled the band-aid free of its wrapping to place on his sacrifice was a sound all to familiar to Soubi and his heart ached for that.
  • Comments: A one-shot of Ritsuka retreating to his room to nurse his newest wounds at his mother's hands. Soubi comes (without needing to be physically called) to help. A cute peek into an apparently repeating situation that shows the closeness of the two.

Different by Redfaerie.

  • Recommended by Golden Dragon 326
  • Pairing(s): Ritsuka/Soubi
  • Synopsis: An unpleasant memory leads Soubi to realize just how different Seimei and Ritsuka really are. And how thankful he is for that.
  • Comments: A short, somewhat fluffy story where Soubi is deep in thought and Ritsuka shows how kind he is in comparison to his brother (which isn't terribly hard to do, but the story is cute anyway).

Dreamcatcher by Yami Mori.

  • Recommended by Golden Dragon 326
  • Pairing(s): Ritsuka/Soubi
  • Synopsis: Nightmares plague Ritsuka and Soubi thinks he might have the perfect solution.
  • Comments: Another cute oneshot where Ritsuka is worrying too much and Soubi comforts him.
