* One of the better written ''BaldursGate'' fanfics, ''[[http://www.shsforums.net/index.php?showtopic=27106 At Soul's Edge]]'' went through a month-long gap before the author resumed, and its sequel, ''Malleus Animorum'', has been on a long hiatus as well. Perhaps justified, however-both gaps occurred at around the same time in each year.

* [[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/3877350/1/birthday_massacre Birthday_Massacre]] by Skitts is a great KingdomHearts horror fic, with interesting characterization and a plot that starts off disjointed, but weaves together subplots and the main plot into something great. It isn't even very gory, but it's unsettling in a good way, a way that compels you to read on. Unfortunately, it was last updated 3 years ago (in 2008) after its 16th chapter was uploaded. A few months after that last update, the author wrote "I really can't be bothered with this site anymore XD" on their profile. And, sadly, it was just when the story was all coming together too.

* The ''Film/DawnOfTheDead1978'' fanfic [[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/3742441/1/Through_These_bFields_b_of_Destruction "Through These fields of Destruction"]] appears to have joined the category, having not received an update for over two years (2007). It is possible this is an orphaned fic as the author was mentioned as joining a form of Armed Forces (believed to be the USA's). The characters appearing have presently unknown fates.

* [[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/3171969/1/Earthbound_199X Earthbound 199X]] was a charmingly well-done ''VideoGame/EarthBound'' fanfic that didn't get an update for over a year. And, check, the last chapter includes an Author's Note intended to assure readers that he hadn't given up yet. That was writtenin ''2009'').

* [[http://sh,ezanfics.livejournal.com/690.html Hitchhiker]]. It's excruciatingly hard to find a well-written [[TheThrawnTrilogy Thrawn]] story, let alone one where he's in a relationship. This is one of them. It started being posted in June 2002, updated regularly on the Jedi Council Forums, slowly started slipping, chapterlets shortening and more time elapsing between each. By June 2003 it quit entirely. The writer, shezan, does respond to [=PMs=] on LiveJournal, and if you're polite will tell you what her vague plan for the rest was before she stopped writing.

* There is a hilariously funny ''{{Temeraire}}'' band AU out on the internet. The writing is fairly solid and everyone is in character. Sadly the last update was in 2009 and it looks like an update will not be coming. But the 3 extant parts are visible below.

* ''FanFic/YouGotHaruhiRolled'' was at one time the most influential CrackFic (and one of the most influential fanfics ''period'') in the ''LightNovel/HaruhiSuzumiya'' section of fanfiction.net. The last update was on [[{{Tanabata}} July 7]], 2012, and even though the fic is [[DoorStopper 86 chapters long]], only five of them were written after July 25, 2010.[[note]]This is not ''entirely'' the result of ScheduleSlip -- at that time the author, in order to celebrate having worked on ''[=HaruhiRolled=]'' for a full year, decided to reserve that fic for his most epic ideas and instead write another crackfic which had exactly the same style of humor which all the readers considered a continuation, and was pretty consistent about updates for a while, but sadly ''that'' fic has not updated since Christmas of 2011.[[/note]] What's worse is that the author seems to have completely disappeared from fanfiction.net -- his profile now opens with a long, apologetic note explaining that he had been unable to update for a year, but should be able to again because school is over, only, as it turns out, [[HopeSpot that he wrote that back in 2012 and has not written anything else since]]. Fortunately, it's a lot less disappointing than most examples on this page, because ''FanFic/YouGotHaruhiRolled'' does not have a whole plot: it isn't a single story so much as an anthology of different crack fics all by the same author, who had the decency not to leave the readers hanging in the middle of an arc. The only evidence that the fic has not reached its natural end is the aforementioned note on the author's profile.

Granted, this happens ''all the time'', and fanfiction.net is littered with the dead, many of which only have ''one'' chapter. After all, fanfiction is the province of amateurs, and when it's not a living, you have any reason to drop the fanfic - interests may change, RealLife may take over, ''et cetera''. But the pain implied in "DeadFic" is a fanfiction that's superbly well-written, that enhances the canon it was based on, that was ''clearly'' the work of love and devotion, [[TearJerker that is left to dwindle and die alone]] despite reviews.

* A ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'' fanfic that seems to have died after a long run is ''FanFic/GuardiansOfPokemon''. The fanfic had been in an hiatus for over a year, and its last update was the "Obligatory Christmas Special"... for 2007. The author ''claims'' to only be able to update regularly during the summer (when school is out)...so it's likely that he just lost interest in it.

* And here we have ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/1309976/1/Falsely-Accused Falsely Accused]]'', a WesternAnimation/HeyArnold story where Helga is [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin falsely accused]] of setting fire to Principal Wartz's office, and is sent to a brutal Juvenile Detention Center. It last updated Jul 5, 2009. It's also currently been deleted, because someone hacked into the author's page and removed it. Luckily, he still has all the chapters written down, and he is going to use this as an opportunity to revise it, and hopefully update it.

* Even ''TheLandBeforeTime'' has a few dead fics. Some of the most promising were ''Time Gate X'' (a SF ''Land Before Time'' thriller), ''[[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/4005976/1/Land_Before_Time_Voyage_through_time Land Before Time: Voyage Through Time]]'' (''Land Before Time'' with some time travel and Russians), ''[[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/3892575/1/Land_Before_Time_Remnants Land Before Time: Remnants]]'', sequel to the ''[[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/2151472/1/Land_Before_Time_War_of_the_Worlds Land Before Time: War of the Worlds]]'' (both about a dinosaur war). To be specific, ''Time Gate X'' was deleted. ''Land Before Time: Voyage'' last updated in 2010. ''Land Before Time: Remnants'' last updated in 2012.
* ''The Land Beyond Time'' by The Oracle was a fusion of ScienceFiction and ''LandBeforeTime'' with a good but {{mind screw}}y plot. In addition, there were some rather...strange plot twists. However, it has been removed from FF.net and is no longer available.
* ''[[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/3132044/1/Out_of_the_Shadows_2 Out of the Shadows 2]]'', sequel to the ''excellent'' and [[WhatDoYouMeanItsNotForKids violent as hell]] ''LandBeforeTime'' fan fiction ''[[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/2550278/1/Out_of_the_Shadows Out of the Shadows]]'' has also not been updated since 2007. WordOfGod states "Cancelled though I may decide to pick up on it later" but sadly, that seems very unlikely.
* Also from the ''LandBeforeTime'' section, ''[[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/2360239/1/Land_Before_Time_The_Mysterious_World Land Before Time: The Mysterious World]]'' has fallen silent. Last update was in 2008 and the author seems to have vanished. Sadly, the chance of it being continued is nearly nonexistent.
