* Recommended by @/JoieDeCombatTropers/Bee123



* ''Pairings'': Larsa/Penelo, Vaan/Penelo, and a faint whiff of Basch/Ashe.
* ''Synopsis'': Larsa has always been very good at long-term planning. (Also known as 'the one where he promises her they can keep Vaan as a pet'.)
* ''Comments'': This fic features a Larsa who has had a chance to grow into his talent for manipulating people and events to his liking, and he'd be a full-on Magnificent Bastard if only he wasn't so darned pleasant and agreeable about the whole thing. As it is, the results, and Penelo's down-to-earth exasperation with him, are comedy gold.

* ''Pairings'': Ashe/Basch
* ''Synopsis'': Sometimes a hated enemy can become a friend through the most unusual of circumstances. Set in-game
* ''Comments'': A study of how Ashe and Basch's relationship shifts and develops over the course of the game, as they move from arm's length to finger's length. Possesses a wonderful sense of emotion and humour, really getting inside the character's heads brilliantly. Also worth a mention is another fic that takes place at the same time, ''[[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/4540111/1/Contract_Law Contract Law]]'', a look at Penelo and how her relationship proceeds with Vaan.

* ''Comment'': Wonderful world building! and great voice for Balthier! (its also quite touching).

* ''Comments:'' ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin, this fic manages to take every character and plotthread from the original story and insert them into the 1900s nicely. There are some minor, necessary changes, but they're executed so well you barely noticed them. Sadly it's a DeadFic, but it doesn't end on a cliffhanger and what's there is definitely worth a look.

Do warn when a fanfic may head into [[EveryoneIsGay homosexual]] or [[BetterThanCanon non-canon]] territory. Some people just don't like it, and as we all know, {{Shipping}} is SeriousBusiness.

* "Synopsis:" A novelization of FFXII, albeit one with creative liberties.
* "Comments:": Despite some rather unusual creative choices (changing Larsa's name to Lamont) there was a lot to love about this adaptation. Villains such as Vayne, Drace, and Emperor Gramis are fleshed out, and events that were only hinted at in the game are vastly expanded on. It also succeeds in giving Vayne an even more tragic backstory than he had in the original, and showing a far more human side. Overall, if you can handle a few small deviations it's worth a look.
