The creators have given anecdotes of allegedly receiving praise from veterans or their family for successfully capturing all these details, although some are so obscure that it goes straight into ViewersAreGeniuses.

* The medical procedure in the first chapter of ''Fanfic/ExtraLife'' was researched extensively and is greatly detailed to show it. Author's notes also tend to draw attention to or mention other things researched, including PTSD, therapy methods, timeline details, and Japanese geography and culture.

* Salazar Slytherin in ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12031399/16/A-Year-Too-Soon A Year Too Soon]]'' refers to various locations by their names in the 10th century such as using Buwayhid Emirates to refer to the area of Kuwait, Iraq, and Iran. Furthermore, his excuse for not wanting muggleborns to attend Hogwarts isn't a random FreudianExcuse but because most muggleborns were commoners and thus both uncultured and illiterate. Also, many of them were christian and therefore believed magic to be the work of Satan.

** She also notably averts ThereAreNoTherapists and turns the story into a four-way crossover [[spoiler: when Blaine gets kidnapped by a StalkerWithACrush ]]. The concussed Blaine needs three weeks of checkups with [[{{Firefly}} Simon Tam]] [[RealityEnsues to make sure he doesn't have brain damage,]] plus therapy with [[GameOfThrones Sansa]] for the huge amount of emotional trauma he's dealing with. [[RealityEnsues Simon ALSO calls]] [[CriminalMinds the Behavioral Analysis Unit]] just to make sure [[spoiler: Blaine's stalker didn't sexually assault him while he was incoherent and unable to remember anything.]]

** [[http://www.fimfiction.net/user/kalash93 Kalash93]] puts A LOT of effort and research into his stories. The greatest examples of this so far are the [[http://www.fimfiction.net/story/81159/1/racer-and-the-geek/predawn gun porn and detail about the military equipment]] in ''FanFic/RacerAndTheGeek, and the high levels of realism and detail put into the military aspects of [[http://www.fimfiction.net/story/90939/1/shell-shock/the-tower Shell Shock.]] His erotic pieces greatly avert YouFailSexEdForever.

* ''Fanfic/DuelingTriggerFinger'' mixes the actual trading card game with the anime's "logic"--such as spell cards being activated on your opponent's turn and playing defense mode monsters face-up--but relies less on DeusExMachina for each victor of any given duel to win. A good example is Makoto's duel with Rex where Makoto locks down Rex's Frostosaurus with Blizzard Dragon long enough to play Dragon Shield on Golem Dragon, making it pointless for Rex to attack and then summoning a monster a few turns later powerful enough to wipe out the rest of Rex's life points.

* The ''Series/Daredevil2015'' two-part fanfic ''[[http://archiveofourown.org/series/280353 Marci Stahl is Better Than You]]'' does something very few works involving blind people do, and acknowledges that Braille has a number of weird contractions that don't translate well into written English; not just used to combine two words, but also to condense common words into a few Braille dots (and primarily prepositions). It is the discovery of such contractions in the dossier on Fisk that leads Marci to suspect Matt is the Devil of Hell's Kitchen.

* ''Fanfic/{{Vigil}}'' goes to some lengths explaining how plasma weaponry from ''Videogame/XCOMEnemyUnknown'' operates and how it interacts with ''Franchise/MassEffect'''s kinetic barriers, including the important point that plasma, being a state of matter, has mass and is thus affected by gravity. Furthermore, because thermal energy can only be transmitted through a vacuum by radiation instead of more efficient methods like convection or conduction, plasma that doesn't hit something in space is largely ineffective, especially when ships have heat-resistant hulls. As a result, kinetic barriers prove highly effective against plasma. This caused quite a few angry reviews from readers who insisted that plasma was just another form of energy and should ignore kinetic barriers altogether.

Ironically, ''Videogame/MassEffectAndromeda'' would [[WordOfGod eventually and firmly decide the question]]: kinetic barriers ''do'' block plasma and particle beams.
* By the same author, ''Fanfic/{{Forward}}'' featured realistic space movement, including how dangerous it is to have unsecured materials when there's no gravity. Later on, small-unit infantry tactics are lovingly described as Jayne evades a gang of professional, military-trained gunmen trying to hunt him down.

* Breech Loader, author of fanfiction ''PrisonIslandBreak,'' has put considerable research into such things as medical procedures, prison etiquette, blood types, speech impediments, and the kinds of injuries that would ''really'' be caused by the weapons used in the story.

** The depiction of slavery in the Demon Empire averts both HappinessInSlavery and FateWorseThanDeath. Their treatment and conditions [[RealityEnsues vary depending on their masters and where they are working]].
** Sonya's plasma-focused katana is correctly depicted as a backup weapon. In mediaeval Japan, the samurai preferred bows and spears over their swords, which they used if anything got too close. She also prefers using guns - [[RealityIsUnrealistic the samurai admired firearms]] and used them extensively after they were introduced to Japan.
** Maledict's character is a personification of [[Creator/NiccoloMachiavelli Machiavelli's]] eponymous ''Prince'' - wanting to be both feared and loved - rather than the PopculturalOsmosis version. It helps that the author has actually read ''The Prince'' in real life.
** One of Jesus' military assistants is Lucifer. This seems rather unusual considering Maledict's presence, unless you know that Lucifer and Satan are actually different biblical beings entirely.
