Tales of the Abyss/Fanfic Recs

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

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

These are recommendations made by Tropers for Tales of the Abyss, 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 homosexual or non-canon territory. Some people just don't like it, and as we all know, Shipping is Serious Business.

Authors, and Websites

  • This writer has quite a few Tales of the Abyss storied under their belt. Their writing consists of stories or oneshots exploring "what ifs" of the storyline. Laryna6 portrays all of the characters very well and never once did I feel that story was ridiculous or the characters ooc. These stories are possibly some of the best fanfiction I've ever read. They explore the implications of the plot in a logical yet creative manner. Another plus would be that Laryna6 tends to finish their fics even if it takes a while to update.

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.
