[[ The Works of Federica Giulietti]]
* Recommended by Tropers/{{Roo}}
* Federica Giulietti's fanfics are a rare experience, rather than the traditional prose stories, they take the form of illustrated scriptfics or, if you will, "fan storyboards," with a loose, sketchy drawing style, which makes her stories very visually-orientated and cartoony. The stories are pretty close in tone and feel to the original cartoon, if a little edgier and unhindered by censors, and usually center around the Warners (though the other Animaniacs characters make frequent appearances as well.)
** Highlights include ''[[ Warners Against Warners]]'', which pits the Warners against their original prototypes, ''[[ FUTURWAANA]]'', which is a ''very'' loose parody of WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}} (particularly the first episode), and ''[[ Wakko's Dish]]'', a parody of ''Wakko's Wish'' with slight horror overtones.
*** Important note: The fics are originally in Italian, but have been translated into English by Federica Giulietti herself -- and that's their biggest weakness, because her English isn't very good. The creativity and energy of the stories more than make up for the less-than-stellar translations, though.

[[ YakkingYakko]]
* Recommended by [=FurorNocturna=]
* Written in playwright format, this author manages to capture the tone and essence of the original cartoon in their works to the point they can easily come across as unaired episodes.
** "Won't-stock" is arguably the funniest of the bunch, with the Warners attending Woodstock and their "unseen" ventures at the concert that runs loosely parallel to the events in the canon episode "Woodstock Slappy", and it's a laugh riot start to finish; "Scary Movie Blues" features the consequences of when Wakko and Dot bite off more than they can chew watching a scary movie late at night and are stricken with paranoia come bedtime, to Yakko's chagrin, which is both highly entertaining as it is heartwarming with the sibling interaction; "Sherlock Yakko 1-4" stories are a bit darker and edgier in tone, but still keep the spirit of the show with its charm and humor all the while being an affectionate parody
** [[spoiler: Warning: Minor WakkoxFifi LeFume shipping in some of the stories, and minor implied shipping between DotxBuster in one]]

[[WMG:[[GenFic General Fics]]]]
''Stories focused on the family and the friendly relationships of the cast. Plot-focused stories or light day-in-the-life stories. Pretty much anything that isn't focused on romance.''

''[[ Family]]'' by [[ The Middle Warner Sibling]] (Caution is advised, primarily due to language issues and likely an AlternateUniverse setting.)
* Recommended by @/Market43Fan, kurumitsubasa
* ''Status'': Dormant
* ''Synopsis'': A depiction of the Warner siblings managing to rise from almost the ultimate hard-luck circumstances (their dad is a pickpocket/con artist, for example) to become the stars of ''WesternAnimation/{{Animaniacs}}''. Set between 1988 with the most recent chapter being from the summer of 1996.
** There is a side story [[ here]] (Complete).

''[[ Out of the Tower and Out of Their Minds]]'' by Karen Tindall
* Recommended by TroubleTheCat
* ''Status'': Complete
* ''Synopsis'': Technically two stories in one. The first part is very loosely based on the old SNES Animaniacs game, with the Warner Siblings being asked by Mr. Plots to look for a stolen movie script in what is really a ploy to keep them out of the way of an important celebrity dinner at the studio, [[spoiler:only for the script to be stolen for real by Pinky and the Brain, in one of their usual harebrained TakeOverTheWorld schemes.]] Lots of characters make cameos, including members of the WesternAnimation/TinyToonAdventures cast and genuine HilarityEnsues. Part 2 is a full on crossover with Tiny Toon Adventures in which the Warner Siblings are rewarded for their help in the first part of the story with a visit to Acme Acres.
* ''Pairing(s):'' Contains some Yakko/Fifi in Part 2.

''[[ Bonds]]'' by [[ FearlessFreep]]
* Recommended by: GeminiStar01
* ''Status'': Complete
* ''Synopsis:'' "An unexpected death leads to whispers of an unsettling conspiracy. When disaster strikes, the bonds of sibling love are tested in a race against time to save Toontown." Set several years after the end of the series, Bonds mixes liberally with WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes, WesternAnimation/TinyToons, and Film/WhoFramedRogerRabbit.
* ''Tags:'' Character Death, some pairings, DarkFic (but not too dark.)
* ''Pairings:'' There's no real romance, but there ''are'' highly emotional pairings built up, including Buster/Babs, Yakko/Babs, and Skippy/Dot.

''[[ Jane Narf]]'' by Parhelion
* Recommended by bluehedgehogjunkie
* ''Status'': Complete
* ''Synopsis:'' "Passion! Plagiarism! Puerility! The Love Story Every Woman Would Die a Thousand Deaths to Live is now The Parody Every Mouse Would Die a Thousand Deaths to Delete!"
* ''Tags:'' Crossover, Parody, OriginalFlavor
* ''Pairings:'' Implied Pinky/Brain, Dot/Brain and Snowball/Brain--but it's only incidental. (Think Yakko as Han and Dot as Leia in "Star Warners".)

* Recommended by fruitstripegum

''[[ Running Around in Circles]]'' by DarkHououmon
* Recommended by ladyofthelibrary
* ''Status'': Complete
* ''Synopsis'': Yakko had never thought twice about pulling pranks on people he deemed his "Special Friend". What happens when he picks the wrong target and finds himself now the victim? Rated T to be safe. (taken from fanfiction)
* Comments: While this story gets [[DarkFic dark]] at times, it ultimately remains a piece about the family bond between the members of the Animaniacs cast and how good always wins.
* Warnings: [[spoiler: Rape, torture, abuse of various characters and death of minor characters.]]

''[[ Colorless]]'' by weirdsib
* Recommended by totofan4ever
* ''Status'': Complete
* ''Synopsis'': There's nothing to fear but fear itself. For toons, this is literal, and the Warners are about to find that out the hard way.
* Comments: While the pacing of the game is a bit quick for my liking, the bond between the Warner sibs is this fanfic's strongest point and makes the fic overall enjoyable.

''[[ Dear Wakko]]'' by Racerette
* ''Status'': Complete
* ''Synopsis'': 20 years after the show ended, Yakko writes a letter to his brother.
* Comments: A nice little one-shot that builds up to the perfect joke in the end. Just go read it.

''[[ Yakko's World]]'' by frecleface

But when a bully steals Wakko's hat, the Warners have to find a way to get it back while still being on their best behavior. Will the Warners get back Wakko's hat and still get their trip to the waterpark?

''[[ Morning Warners]]'' by sweetiepie08
* ''Status'': Complete
* ''Synopsis'': Dr. Scratchansniff wakes up one peaceful morning only to find the Warners tearing his kitchen apart!
* Comments: Again, this could easily be an episode of the show and it shows a nice father like relationship on Dr. Scratchansniff's part.

* Recommended by fruitstripegum
* ''Status'': Complete
* ''Synopsis'': A story of how Dr. Scratchansniff discovers not even happy-go-lucky Wakko can handle being locked in an elevator for over ten hours without serious repercussions.
