''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/3147655/1/Memento-Vivere Memento Vivere]]'' by [[https://www.fanfiction.net/u/338943/Enkida Enkida]]
* Has its own [[http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Fanfic/MementoVivere troper's page]]
* Recommended by {{Madame_Newbie}}
* ''Status'': Ongoing
* ''Pairing(s)'': Auron/Rikku
* ''Synopsis'': Sin is a memory, Vegnagun is scrap metal and a new era of peace has swept over Spira. It's not enough for Rikku, who is still waiting for her own story to begin. But what happens when her search brings her on a pilgrimage to the past... literally?
* ''Comments'': This is one of the best Braska's Pilgrimage fanfic around. The nail is that Rikku is sent back to the past and is roped, alongside with Jecht to join in Braska's pilgrimage. The author has managed to capture everyone's personality to perfectly. It's never boring and has some of the best character growth on this side of the fandom. The story had a 8 year hiatus but has returned with regular updates. Even if you're not into Auron/Rikku, this fic is worth for its writing and plot and I greatly recommend it for those who wanted to read about Yuna's doomed father.

* ''Status'': Dead



* ''Comments'': To call this story a diamond in the sand can't come close to doing it justice. The story has something for everyone, and is one of the few fanfics that focuses a significant portion of its story on political intrigue, and does it well. Better than some published works. Every aspect of Spira is expounded upon without it seeming like exposition: it's delivered so comically, or it's laden with so much intrigue, that you'll laugh or be at the edge of your seat respectively. It is also one of the few fics that portrays a relationship between Auron and Rikku and makes it completely believable. Auron has the standard misgivings about being in a relationship with someone so young, and this fic explores it properly. Delving into platonic and sexual aspects of just the idea in an gripping first person perspective. And Rikku is written as a strong, intelligent, optimistic individual who is very much still an irrational teenager. This fic has a MagnificentBastard Auron at war with other Bastards, keeps him a solid tactical leader and teacher within Yuna's party, while still portraying a tough, military mindset that's in stark contrast with Rikku's (usually) bubbly, cheerful dialogues, and so much more. While rr1963 seems to have [[DeadFic abandoned the fic,]] it is still worth reading. You will find something new in each reread, and the novelty never completely fades. Click the link.

* ''Synopsis'': Braska and Auron are sent to an Al Bhed encampment, in an attempt to spread the word of Yevon. There Braska meets Shaara, a tough, no-nonsense mechanic who wants nothing more than to get rid of the Yevonites. Instead Shaara learns more about Braska, and that he's not quite like the other Yevonites that she's met.
* ''Comments'': An absolutely wonderful story of how Braska and Yuna's mother, here named Shaara, met. Little to no actual romance, but it instead shows how their unlikely friendship began. Shaara is an incredibly well written character, and her out-going and brash nature more than complements Braska's more gentle demeanour. Heavily recommended.

* ''Comments'': This is a fairly new fic for a fairly dead fandom, and it's only just broken 10k, but I think it deserves it's place here on the recs page. It's only three chapters long so far, but each chapter is gripping and written really well. The author is really active with the readers as well, and it's well worth a read through the comments to get some insight into the working's behind the AU. I don't want to say too much and spoil it, but I will say that even short and incomplete as it is, it's one of the best FFX fics I've read in years, and it gives me hope for the fandom. Also, even with slow updates, the author replies to all comments and is very much actively writing for this fic.

* ''Comments'': Now usually I'm not one to go for Modern Day AU story, on a hunch I decided on reading this and was truly not disappointed. The main characters are clearly Rikku and Paine in this one and it takes the characters from the game and puts them into a realistic setting and gives them a bit more appropiate personalities (cracked up a Nooj more than once). Though the story is not without it's bad points like the treatment of a few characters and the story in all features a few mature themes and a bit of drug abuse. Still it's a nicely written story, really long and just wants you to see what happens next.

* ''Comments'': Mostly fluff and very much a CrackPairing, but the author has fun with it. Rikku is perfectly in character,but Seymour... well, he could conceivably be seen acting like he does in the situation. Cid as an overprotective dad is what took the cake for me. Also features an alternate 'un-romantic' ending.

** Quite a few more chapters have been posted since above troper made this rec, and I can now guarantee you that this fic is well worth a read, if only for [[http://archiveofourown.org/users/Introverts_United/pseuds/JosephineSilver JosephineSilver's]] beautiful and evocative writing style, let alone the interesting premise and plot.

* Recommended by {{Transistor_Blue}}
* ''Pairing(s)'': None yet (it's early days) but the author has stated that they will be sticking to canon ships.
* ''Synopsis'': "Sin always returns for its spawn." That's what they say. That's what they know. Tidus' arrival in Spira goes differently. Jecht approves...Auron did not sign up for this (but we all know he really did).

* ''Synopsis'': Rikku/Paine. In an alternate continuity, where grief over Seymour murdering and maiming her guardians on Mount Gagazet drove Yuna to perform the Final Summoning and bring about a standard Calm, Rikku, joined by her guardian Paine, seeks to become a summoner herself, and find a way to end not only Sin's threat once and for all, but also, those of several horrifyingly potent new threats as well.

* ''Comments'': This fic provides a really fascinating look into a 'what if' and diverges from canon in a true-to-canon way. It's a dark concept and doesn't hold back on that, but also provides cute moments and shout-outs to FFX-2 and the original continuity. This is a great ongoing (and more recent) fic for Raine shippers who like to read fanfiction that stays true to the feel of the original game.

* ''Pairing'': Auron/Rikku
* ''Synopsis'': Everybody's got a story. This one has poker, pudding, Ashura, Leviathan, and Perry Mason. Top that.
* ''Comments'': Poignant, powerful, hilarious, and bittersweet. I honestly cannot recommend it more. This is probably one of the best pieces the Auron/Rikku fandom has to offer.
