* ''Fanfic/TranscendenceAU'' Is ''WesternAnimation/GravityFalls'' fanfic that [[FanVerse spiralled out of control]], based on an event where Dipper fused with Bill's demonic energy and the barriers keeping the weird stuff in [[EldritchLocation Gravity Falls]] all came down. [[FantasyKitchenSink Now the whole world's like that.]]
** ''WesternAnimation/GravityFalls'' has a lot of these, actually. Asides from "Transcendence", two other significant ones are Reverse Falls and Monster Falls. In the former, Lil' Gideon and Pacifica Northwest are the heroes with Dipper and Mabel as a pair of CreepyTwins antagonists. It gets very dark. The latter is more lighthearted and sees Grunkle Stan's latest scam being selling drinking water he stole from a strange creek. The water's magical properties turns the townspeople into various mythical creatures. For example, among the main cast, Dipper as a [[OurCentaursAreDifferent deer-centaur]], Mabel as a mermaid, Grunkle Stan as a gargoyle, Soos as a clay homunculus, and Wendy as a werewolf.

* The ''Fanfic/SpiderWoman'' series, which posits what would have occurred [[SpiderMan if Mary Jane Watson had been bitten by the radioactive spider rather than Peter Parker]].
** Speaking of such, there's a surprising amount of 'retelling' stories, basically with a similar premise as Ultimate Spider-Man: Spdey's adventures retold, with original and familiar ideas thrown around. Sometimes, they can be epic and even BetterThanCanon, other times they can fall into common fanfic problems. Notably, [[ILetGwenStacyDie Gwen Stacy]] [[NeverLiveItDown dies in a lot of them]], seemingly for no reason. To a lesserdegree, other comics, such is Iron Man, Avengers, Batman, and even Transformers get the same treatment.

* ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'' has a few:
** ''[[http://archiveofourown.org/works/5673712/chapters/13070491 Opal, Sapphire, Ruby, and STEVEN!]]'' takes place in a universe where Opal [[spoiler: is the permafusion]] instead of [[spoiler: Garnet]].
** Both ''[[http://archiveofourown.org/works/3810709/chapters/8492101 Connie Parallel]]'' and ''[[http://archiveofourown.org/works/3743083/chapters/8299711 Buck Dewniverse]]'' are stories where Steven ISN'T the human-Gem hybrid.
** A common theme is the "Momswap", where Steven is being raised by the Homeworld Gems instead of the Crystal Gems. [[http://momswapverse.tumblr.com/tagged/fake_cartoon_reviews/chrono Here]] is one of the better versions.

* [[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/9264139/1/Urusei-Yatsura-Love-to-Skate Urusei Yatsura: Love to Skate!]] is set in a world where [[Manga/UruseiYatsura Ataru]] WASN'T the one chosen to be Lum's opponent in that fateful game of tag. Among other things, there's no DefeatByModesty (Lum lets Sora, the Original Character who replaces Ataru, win after he saves her from a nasty fall), and the AccidentalProposal occurs when Ataru goads him into rhetorically asking if he should propose, and it's taken out of context. Also, it's set in TheNewTens, Sora and Ten get on better than Ten and Ataru do, and Kurama is more willing to accept Sora as he is instead of trying to change him (mainly because he isn't a pervert, and his resultant harem is genuinely an UnwantedHarem).
