The Borribles/Fanfic Recs

Everything About Fiction You Never Wanted to Know.

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

These are recommendations made by Tropers for Borribles fanfics, 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.

There are far too few Borribles fanfics out there. Let's try to find them all and list'em here.

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.

Status guide:

  • Complete: Exactly What It Says on the Tin.
  • Ongoing: The fic is being updated on a regular basis,[1] or has received an update after a significant absence.
  • Dormant: The fic has not been updated in a fairly long time (several months to a year or more) but the author has not pronounced it dead.
  • Dead: The fic has not been updated in several years, or the author has specifically said that it will not be updated.

Note: Fics listed as Dormant or Dead will be changed to Ongoing if/when they receive updates. If you see a rec with a blank status, and you're familiar with the fanfic, please add the correct status.

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.

Borribles To The End by Borusa

  • Recommended by: Looney Toons
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: Thirty years after the Great Rumble Hunt, early 21st-Century Britain is a hard place to be a Borrible. But that doesn't stop Sydney and Chalotte, the last survivors of the Hunt, from trying to find out what happened to Knocker.
  • Comments: Well-written, all-too-short fic that captures a certain End of an Age feeling while echoing the cadences of de Larrabeiti's prose. Not quite a Dark Fic, but certainly a Bittersweet Ending.

Shipping Fics

Stories focused on the romantic relationships between the cast. Fairly unlikely for The Borribles, but you never know.

Crossover Fics

Five Deaths That Never Happened To Kenny by MarcusRowland

  • Recommended by: Looney Toons
  • Status: Complete (at least the Borribles part is)
  • Synopsis: This Mega Crossover supposes that Kenny of South Park is a Highlander-style Immortal. In the first chapter Kenny encounters the Wendles of Wandsworth while on the run from MacLeod.
  • Comments: Not badly written, but not overwhelming either. I've recommended it because it's only the second Borribles fic I've ever encountered.
  • Tags: Crack Fic.
