* "Fanfic/SolaereSsiunHnaifvdaenn"'s author's notes mention doing a lot of research to get the details of [[UsefulNotes/{{Islam}} Shi'a]] religious practices correct (the main viewpoint character is an Iranian Shiite, but the author is an American [[UsefulNotes/{{Christianity}} Methodist]]), and even link to [[http://www.al-islam.org/nutshell/files/prayers.pdf a Shiite-specific handbook for the daily prayers]].

** ''Fanfic/AChangedWorld'' suggests that black holes are scary enough ''without'' needing to be {{unrealistic|BlackHole}}. Gravitational TimeDilation and redshifting of EM radiation, and the interference caused by radiation from the accretion disk are all plot points. The only concessions to ''Franchise/StarTrek'' are natural consequences of Treknology: a ship can use its warp drive to partially counteract TimeDilation for itself (the ship[[spoiler:s]] USS ''Bajor'' rescues suffered drive damage and couldn't), and can withstand the gravity well with its structural integrity field.

* [[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. He isn't very fond of using artistic license for anything.

* The ''{{Franchise/Kirby}}'' fanfic ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11732188/1/Wings-of-Change Wings of Change]]'' goes into a fair amount of detail about wing structures, such as having minute receptors on the wings and a large collection of bones, justifying how Meta Knight (and later Kirby) can fly, with the species' powerful lungs also helping them out. It also discusses the actual processes of flying such as needing a high lift-to-drag ratio which reduces the amount of energy needed for sustained flight.

** Sonya's plasma-focused katana is correctly depicted as a backup weapon. In medaevel 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.

* The crossover ''Fanfic/ShepherdOfTheStars'' features a lot of Codex entries where the author shows off how much work went into researching the different settings. The author generated randomized tech trees for each faction in the story, tracks what technologies they have researched, and even calculated the composition, armaments, and construction costs of the various fleets that are featured. Considering there are currently ten different factions, this translates to an impressive amount of work.
