''[[ Bentruth.rtf]]'' by [=PERSONAshou=]
* '''Note:''' Link is currently dead due to the original forums going down. If it is not reposted on the new forums, it may potentially show up on in a few months.
* Recommended by @/ProgenyExMachina
* ''Status'': Complete
* ''Synopsis'': [=TheTruth=].rtf from BEN's point of view. Uses AlternativeCharacterInterpretation to paint him as little more than a bored [[TheGadfly gadfly]]. It has a sense of humor and pokes fun at the original document, though good-naturedly.
* It's a dead link.

''[[ The Ryukaki Connection]]'' by Rixaka
* Recommended by @/ProgenyExMachina
* ''Status'': Dead
* ''Synopsis'': "College student Kayd Hendricks just hit the jackpot and by jackpot, he means an affordable house. But is this a stroke of good luck or some demented twist of fate?" It's a good interpretation of the events preceding the Ryukaki arc, but the tone of haunting ''solitude'' really makes it. Everything is that much creepier because you get the feeling he's completely alone, even when other people are nearby.

''[[ Remember]]'' by @/MugenKagemaru
* Recommended by Jonathan Ventus
* ''Status'': Discontinued due to insufficient motivation to do the rest of the entries
* ''Synopsis'': In April 2013 a new user at Within Hubris decides to release a POV game based on Ben Drowned. About 4 months later, one of the players decides to record the first game as a narrative

''[[ Your Turn]]'' by The Lilac Pilgrim
* Recommended by @/ProgenyExMachina
* ''Status'': Dormant
* ''Synopsis'': "Jadusable, trapped in the Majora's Mask cartridge, fights to keep his sanity. BEN has other ideas." An excellent take on Jad's imprisonment with his tormentor.

''[[ [=CleverBEN=]]]'' by The Lilac Pilgrim
* Recommended by @/ProgenyExMachina
* ''Status'': Complete
* ''Synopsis'': Jadusable's first Website/{{Cleverbot}} conversation with BEN wasn't quite what we saw in his notes. Involves (non-graphic) attempted cybering, which manages to be funny and creepy at the same time.

''[[ The Kayd Series]]'' by an unknown author
* Recommended by @/ProgenyExMachina
* ''Status'': Presumably complete
* ''Synopsis'': An epic TrollFic. This excerpt speaks for itself:
-->Kayd 1: kayd an teh orcacrhd\\
kayd had runnin threw all tres in orckard to get way from fone call an eulogy. "sumthing come for me!" he say and run. before run tho he get his fone and bike and gun then leves fone an bike an taik gun. he runly thru fores orkacrd shoting bullts at all the zmbies in orcharkd thet wanting to eat his brain.

''[[ ThereIsBeautyInYourSuffering]]'' by an [[ KQSimply]]
* Recommended by iTroll
* ''Status'': Appears to be a deadfic, depressingly.
* ''Synopsis'': An [[OriginalCharacter Original Character's]] experience with BEN. Quite an interesting take on what would happen if BEN really was transferred through the truth.rtf document, and decided to toy with [[TheFourthWallWillNotProtectYou the downloader]] as he had with Jadusable. Offers [[AlternateCharacterInterpretation Alternate Character Interpretation]] for BEN, and focuses mainly on the victim's decent into insanity.
* ''Excerpt'':
-->[[TheEveryman I am not a hero. I'm not an accomplished detective and I'm not intelligent, significant, brave, strong, anything.]] I'm a young girl who got sucked into a scary campfire story gone horribly, horribly wrong. I'm not cut out for this, the real truth.
-->But I've realized what's happened.
-->[[spoiler:He's here.]]
-->[[spoiler:I've opened it.]]
-->[[spoiler:he's here, I can't see him but he's here, somewhere]]
