** I've never read her Star Wars books, but her Darwath Trilogy is some damn fine writing, and some of the only high fantasy books I can stand reading (no offence to high fantasy fans, it's just not my cup of tea)

* Anything and everything written by Heidi Thomas. ''Series/CallTheMidwife'', ''Series/{{Cranford}}'', ''BalletShoes'' -- there is no other writer able to balance drama and comedy so well, [[TearJerker jerking the tears]] repeatedly without ever falling into melodrama, nor so excellent at creating believable characters with incredible depth in scant minutes of screen time. Her writing is always so understated, packing an emotional punch all out of proportion with the simplicity of the words, and she puts a thousand meanings into every single line. She's just... ugh. Heidi Thomas is the absolute ''best''. To the point where ''Creator/JudiDench'' (yes, THAT Judi Dench) called her writing "inspired" and "extraordinary".

* ''{{WesternAnimation/GravityFalls}}'' is so surprisingly well written that I consider this to be one of the best cartoons out there. literally ANYTHING is possible in there, the foreshadowing is great and most of the characters are just so great, you will even grow to love the characters you somewhat disliked at first.

* ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}''. Just...everything about ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}''. The odd, occasionally dark, but ever-present sense of humour. The way [[LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters every single character]], no matter how small, has a clearly distinct voice and characterisation. The way AndrewHussie manages to pack in so much information that just seems to set up the mood or a joke but then turns out to be incredibly important later on, and the way you can never tell the difference between when he [[WritingByTheSeatOfYourPants makes shit up as he goes along]] and when he [[CrazyPrepared plans things years in advance]]. The way it is capable of making you [[CrowningMomentOfFunny laugh]], [[TearJerker cry]], and [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming d'awwww]] all at the same time. The way all the characters get to do something [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome awesome]], rather than there being just one hero and a bunch of sidekicks. The way the ridiculous number of {{Call Back}}s, {{Ironic Echo}}s, and {{Continuity Nod}}s all wrap together into an incredibly coherent work, making it fun both for casual readers and the more dedicated fans. Even just his writing style, which can run the gamut from over-the-top PurpleProse to the [[BeigeProse beigest]] of BuffySpeak and all the while sound just so distinctly ''Homestuck''. All of ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}''. [[RunningGag All of it.]]

* Because Creator/HannaBarbera cartoons had limited animation, they relied on good writing to survive. And OH BOY did they have some good writing. When I was a little kid, these cartoons gave me my first real taste of both SitCom and {{Drama}}. Since, I couldn't watch the "adult" dramas like LawAndOrder, I'd get my dose of excitement by wondering how [[WesternAnimation/ValleyOfTheDinosaurs Lok]] would escape the cave of winds, or how [[TheBananaSplits the Three Musketeers]] would defeat King's evil twin brother. And when the jokes on normal sitcoms would go over my head, I would turn to ScoobyDoo or WackyRaces and laugh my head off at the clever jokes. Without cartoons like these, I might have been forced to watch bland stuff like *shudder* TheGetAlongGang. Yes, Creator/HannaBarbera introduced me to the wonders of well-written shows, and saved from a lifetime or boredom.

* [[http://www.fanfiction.net/u/1386361/ Warrior4]] has written a some of the best {{Redwall}} fan fiction I have ever read. [[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/3817978/1/A_Mask_and_a_Song A Mask and a Song]] is, in short, a FixFic that involves reviving Martin's LoveInterest, Rose. However, the subject is dealt with with such tact and skill (and ''without breaking canon''), that it feels like it could have fit right into the official story.

* I love [[{{Nasuverse}} Kinoko Nasu's]] writing to death. Yes, two-thirds of his works are porn with plot, but the plot is not only the focus, but a '''well done plot''' on top of that. Deep and interesting characters that all have their time in the spotlights, an easy-to-read yet well-laden writing style that mixes purple prose into near undiscernable amounts, and a [[WorldOfBadass 'Verse of '''badass''']] that still manages to make life interesting beyond explosions of power. The only thing wrong with the Nasuverse is arguably the [[FanDumb fandom]].

** Death Note is also one of a very small number of shows that have geniuses as main characters that also has those genius's intellects believably demonstrated, rather than relying on it being an InformedAttribute

*''Manga/DeathNote'' and ''PlatinumEnd'' writer Tsugumi Ohba is godlike when it comes to writing thrillers - especially when it comes to writing twists and gambit pileups. Not to mention that he's amazing at pacing. If all that wasn't enough, it's even more impressive when he uses all of these skills and applies them to writing a normal different genre of manga like ''Bakuman'' - which is much more of a SliceOfLife manga, but it's also written and paced like a thriller.
