Granted, this happens ''all the time'', and [[Website/FanFictionDotNet fanfiction.net]] is littered with the dead, many of which only have ''one'' chapter, even though they clearly weren't intended as one-shots. After all, fanfiction is the province of amateurs, and when it's not a living, authors have any reason to drop the fanfic - they may lose interest in the fandom concerned, RealLife may take over, even an AuthorExistenceFailure that is not made public can happen, ''et cetera''. But the pain implied in "Dead Fic" 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.

* Presenting ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/2863926/1/Magical-Girl-Pretty-Helga Magical Girl Pretty Helga]]'', an expertly written story where [[WesternAnimation/HeyArnold Helga Pataki]] becomes a MagicalGirlWarrior (a conventional one, surprisingly, not a DarkMagicalGirl). Last update... May 24, 2006. "Sniff".
* ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/7766406/1/Seekerella Seekerella]]'' is pretty much ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin - a Franchise/{{Transformers}} retelling of Literature/{{Cinderella}} with Starscream as Cinderella and Soundwave as the prince. It had a few interesting twists on the story (for one thing, Megatron was Starscream's "master" instead of stepfather), but hasn't updated since Feb 14, 2012.
* ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/8096854/1/The-Tyrant-s-Heir The Tyrant's Heir]]'' is a WesternAnimation/TransformersPrime fanfic where Starscream becomes pregnant with Megatron's sparkling, and this (alongside Knockout getting pregnant) leads to the end of the war. Last update - Jul 1, 2012.
* ''[[http://archiveofourown.org/works/432017/chapters/731169 The Seeker and the Medic]]'' is a Franchise/{{Transformers}} fanfic where Starscream and Hook start a romantic relationship. The author got four chapters in, then abandoned the story.
* ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/5070772/1/Crosswinds Crosswinds]]'' is a Franchise/{{Transformers}} fanfic which takes place after WesternAnimation/TheTransformersTheMovie, and involves Starscream's ghost taking up residence in an air base of Earth, and falling in love with [[Anime/TransformersArmada Alexis]] (who happens to be an air force captain in this story). It hasn't updated since Dec 14, 2010.

** There was this fanfic around 2007 called [[http://cartoon-xover-club.deviantart.com/art/Kingdom-Hearts-TWT-Prolog-63197690 Kingdom Hearts:]] [[http://cartoon-xover-club.deviantart.com/art/Kingdom-Hearts-TWT-Ch-1-63197842 The World Tournament]] that was suppose to take place after Kingdom Hearts 2. Itís about an 'author sign up' tournament taking place with many crossover characters come to fight, and that the primary antagonist is SIN from Final Fantasy X. Upon looking back, [[http://elenamegan.deviantart.com/art/Kingdom-Hearts-TWT-Logo-2007-314033741 the reasons back then]] is that the whole setting feels amateurish, [[http://elenamegan.deviantart.com/art/KH-TWT-OC-Reina-2007-314165112 there are lots of characters that the author canít control]], arguments and drama from certain members, cyberbullying (to the point that the author's old accounts were hacked) and other real life issues. [[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/5392105/1/Kingdom-Hearts-TWT An attempt revision]] is made alongside a [[http://kingdomheartstwt.deviantart.com deviantart group]], but they are inactive.
*** Apparently, there is a supposed third remake around April 2013 called [[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/9231671/1/Kingdom-Hearts-The-Ethereal-War-Tournament-Part-1 Ethereal War Tournament]] with three parts planned and a compacted story taking place between Dream Drop Distance and Kingdom Hearts 3. Part 1 is based on {{SeeD}} Academy from Final Fantasy VIII, Part 2 is mainly about the tournament, and Part 3 is the final battle against SIN. But history merely repeats itself with life and doubts of the author can pull it off. Again, it has a [[http://kingdomheartsewt.deviantart.com/ group]] left inactive with various journals deleted. Had the story continued, it shows that Yeul from Final Fantasy XIII-2 became a heartless in Caiusí past, and a friend of an OC is a container of SIN. The antagonist in Part 1 is Douglas Hein from Final Fantasy: The Spirit Within. Fragments based on side stories (and the Ďfragmentsí from FFXIII-2) about certain characters could have been considered. It would have had concept art and character designs. The worlds could have appear are: Radiant Garden, Atlantis, Aladdin, Codename: Kids Next Door, Princess and the Frog, Tangled (before it's officially revealed as a [=KH3=] world), Emperorís New Groove, Pulse, Fullmetal Alchemist, Yugioh, Digimon, My Little Pony, Legend of Korra, Marvel and the world where that tournament take place.

** [[http://sh,ezanfics.livejournal.com/690.html Hitchhiker]]. It's excruciatingly hard to find a well-written [[Literature/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.

* ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/724270/1/Nightmares Nightmares]]'' was an extremely well-written fanfiction for ''WesternAnimation/TheDreamstone'', revolving around a girl who was trapped in the Land of Nightmares. The last update was in 2007, after she had successfully stolen the Dreamstone and given it to Zordrak. A sad loss - particularly as there aren't many fanfics (well-written or otherwise) for the Dreamstone.

* Though listed as "complete", ''Fanfic/TwilightPrettyCure'' (last updated July 31 2015) qualifies because several of the revised chapters (the result of a backlash over the story's handling of issues such as rape, victim blaming and disability) were never reposted. And given that the author has, in light of what happened, vowed never to write for the ''Anime/PrettyCure'' fandom again, it's highly unlikely they ever will be.
