Star Wars/Fanfic Recs

Everything About Fiction You Never Wanted to Know.
Jump to navigation Jump to search

Proof that the remaining 10% is worth rebelling against the Empire for here:

These are recommendations made by Tropers for Fan Fics set in the galaxy far, far away, all of which have been signed. After a few samples, you will be able to judge whether you might be interested in the 'fic, based on who recommended it. No-name recommendations will be Zapped (wiki). Nobody would back up the rec. 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.

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

Many of these fics involve not only the film series, but also the extensive Star Wars Expanded Universe. A related page is Knights of the Old Republic.

Authors and Websites[edit | hide | hide all]

Ash Darklighter

  • Recommended by Falcon Arrow
  • If it's written by Ash Darklighter and it's Star Wars, it goes here. Seriously. Out of the Shadows is this troper's first recommendation, as it requires almost no Expanded Universe knowledge to get started and the only AU element is that Yoda didn't die. (The opening scene is immediately after a novel set right after Return of the Jedi, but isn't consequential and is eventually explained later.) After deciding that he's only half-trained and that the Jedi will need him full time in order to return, Luke disappears from the Galaxy... three years later, Force sensitives are beginning to emerge from the shadows, but what's become of the last Jedi Knight? The other Ash Darklighter recommendations are The Emerald Price (note that chapters 31 onward in this entry) and Spirit of the Shifting Sands. The former recommendation is for when it's revealed just how far Luke will go for someone he cares about... and the latter for a rather nasty revelation about what part of the New Republic hierarchy thinks of Luke Skywalker's desire to truly fight for peace and justice instead of being a "tame Jedi" at their beck and call, a common theme in Darklighter's work... they gave the Imperial Remnant personal data on the Rebellion's war hero and permission to take him down.

The Darth Side: Memoirs of a Monster

  • Recommended by Yogi
  • Synopsis: Darth Vader's diary from the start of New Hope to the end of Jedi.

Yoda Kenobi's Fanfiction (link [dead link])

The Son of Suns trilogy by blank101, which includes Into the Storm, In Shadows and Darkness, At the Brink of the Dawn and the Darkness

  • Recommended by Gelious
  • Synopsis: This is an AU trilogy which starts in the end of "The Empire Strikes Back": it begins when "Millenium Falcon" trying to escape from Bespin (with injured Luke on-board) was caught by Vader's Star Destroyer and it's passengers (including Han whom was taken from Jabba by Empire) were taken to Coruscant where Emperor tried to convert Luke to the Dark Side. And that's only the first book... so forget about synopsis and just read the trilogy.

The Vast Empire

  • Recommended by Ugolino
  • Synopsis: A forum focused on fiction about the Empire. More specifically, writers compose "posts" that make up group stories about stormtroopers, fighter pilots,and smugglers affiliated with an Imperial Remnant group called the "Vast Empire". The setting's currently in the last days of the Thrawn era, with the Vast Empire plotting to retake Coruscant. Some of the longer stories can be quite good, especially the "HSC" group stories. Stories are here, and there's a chat and in-universe newspaper.

Kelaria [dead link] (previously known as Wawoot)

  • Recommended by Progeny Ex Machina
  • Kelaria's fics masterfully blend humor and drama while seamlessly working in the most ridiculous concepts—in Another Vader Redemption Fic, Anakin fulfills the prophecy by passing the Sith Master position to Jabba the Hutt, and not only does it make perfect sense in context, but it's a Crowning Moment of Heartwarming as well. My personal favorite of hers is Tales from the Trash Compactor, a non-AU alternative interpretation of the original trilogy that ends happily for everybody and is essentially Fridge Brilliance incarnate. You may also recognize her former username from one of the recs listed below, Bad Boys: JEDI Style.

From the Top Shelf, a community on FFN.

  • Recommended by Much Ado About Nonny
  • This is a collection of the best fanfics of the Star Wars: The Clone Wars section. No, that's not exaggeration; the gal who runs this site is one of the best writers in the fandom, and she knows what she's looking for when it comes to good fanfiction. This community is great, because it's basically one-stop shopping. You'll find quite a diverse sampling of everything the TCW fandom has to offer (not including instances of the Anakin/Ahsoka pairing, though this is probably subject to change), so there's something for almost everybody.

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.

Original Movies timeline[edit | hide]

A New Sith or Revenge of the Hope by Keith Martin

  • Recommended by Joysweeper
  • Synopsis: More of an essay than anything else, this re-writes the story of Episode 4, in light of the information shown in Episode 6, while not changing a single scene or line of dialogue. All the changes are in background or the thoughts of characters.

Innocence by Kenya Starflight (AU)

  • Recommended by Joysweeper

The Sith Who brought Life Day by ophelia

The Father by frodogenic

  • Recommended by Sukiyaki 399
  • Synopsis: Ten years after ROTS, tormenting nightmares of his unborn child drive Darth Vader to extraordinary measures with unexpectedly drastic consequences. Clearly, experience has taught Darth Vader nothing... AU.

By the Grace of Lady Vader and sequel The Ascension of the Queen by Fernwithy, Ami-padme and Aeryn

  • Rec'd by Kateydidnt
  • Synopsis: Amidala survived! But that might not actually be a good thing... Phenomenal story. I rarely cry reading fanfic, but the final bits of The Ascension of the Queen where Padme is confronted with her own actions and is forced to finally see what a monster she had become and then sacrifices herself had me bawling.

The Shadow by Neko-Kanojo

  • Recc'd by Candelabra
  • Synopsis: Luke meets Vader on the Death Star. As he slowly falls within the grip of the dark side he realizes what he must do, but success will depend on how much he is willing to sacrifice for his father, and how far he is willing to go to achieve his dreams.
  • Comments: The summary is a little misleading - the fic is basically canon until the end of Empire Strikes Back, except that Luke and Vader meet on the Death Star and are made aware of their relation to one another. But that brief meeting changes a lot of things. Luke's descent into darkness and his relationship with Vader are both fairly well handled.

In the Empire's Shadow by Lieutenant Dan

  • Recc'd by Candelabra
  • Synopsis: Post ESB: Vader searches the galaxy for answers about his family. Luke leads the Rogues and tries to avoid his questions. Lando pursues the frozen Han, but Boba Fett viciously protects his bounty. And Mara Jade is hunting Skywalker.

Expanded Universe[edit | hide]

Sidereal and Tyranny Reborn by Rigil Kent (AU)

  • Recommended by Falcon Arrow
  • Synopsis: Sidereal and Tyranny Reborn (continuing where Sidereal left off). TAU after the Thrawn trilogy, where Leia's focus on the New Republic is amped up (compared to Darklighter's version), leading to some... interesting consequences, while Han returns to battle leading a fleet instead of the Falcon, and Luke and Mara Jade end up fighting clones of dead Jedi Knights/Masters, while developing a relationship... of sorts.

Love Ignites the Galaxy: Star by Star by polgarawolf

Other[edit | hide]

Walk Like Men by Kenya Starflight

  • Recommended by ctebbel09
  • Summary: "On his way to the Lars homestead, Obiwan is ambushed and loses baby Luke. Luke is discovered and raised to adulthood... by Sandpeople."
  • Synopsis: Remember the race on Tatooine known as the Tusken Raiders - aka the Sandpeople? (If not, go here) Well, in this "What if?" scenario, Luke Skywalker, instead of being raised by his aunt and uncle, was taken in by the Tuskens. Also, a very creative and in-depth (though not canon) look at the Tusken culture. Despite the major plot twist, stays surprisingly true to the movies.

Bad Boys, JEDI Style by Wawoot. (AU)

  • Recommended by Ryan Lohner
  • Synopsis: The six Star Wars films are a semi-improvised TV show in which the Jedi all play themselves to keep up popular support. And outside the shooting of the films themselves, there's a whole other story going on involving the labyrinthine relationships between the characters and a whole lot of romance (I'm not putting it in the shipping section because there's a lot more to the story than that and most of the romances involve OCs).

Flight School by yonwords.

Sibling Rivalry by Vader's Fallen Angel.

  • Recommended by Elenor
  • Synopsis: Relationships can be grand or small, long-lasting or ephemeral. Family relationships are the longest-lasting, and Anakin and Owen Lars share a relationship nurtured by the woman who birthed one and nurtured the other: Shmi Skywalker.

She makes a spur-of-the-moment decision to defect... and that's only the beginning.

Heart of Darkness by Cka3ka

  • Recommended by Elenor
  • Status: Dead Fic.
  • Synopsis: An AU universe story in which Vader discovers Leia is his daughter when she is ten years old and takes her to train her, take revenge on Sidious and rule the galaxy. Leia takes his ambitions to heart and meets up with and influences every character and aspect of the original trilogy. Quite realistic with character changes that happen gradually and the characters stay true to themselves even under different circumstances.

Hull #721 by Eleventh Century Remnant

  • Recommended by Vehrec
  • Synopsis: Early production run Star Destroyer Black Prince is recovering from a battle with the Mon Cal cruiser Mon Evarra, when things get...political. In the wrong place at the wrong time, the crew is caught between the sector government, the Emperor's Privy Council, Black Sun, some local aliens with genocidal tendencies, and the Rebellion. How can they survive? Well, for starters, they're one of the best crews with the best officers on a heavily modified ship that can kill planets in its 'stock' configuration. Add to that the backing of pretty much everyone in the Imperial Navy who wants to actually do their job...
