''Stories which attempt to tell the story of one or both of the Knights of the Old Republic games, varrying in how far they stray from the [[PlotCoupon game's]] [[FetchQuest strict]] [[TheThreeTrials plot]].''

''[[ Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic: Fringes of the War]]'' by [[ Coligula Caesar]]
* Recommended by @/CryogenicCritic
* ''Status'': Ongoing
* ''Synopsis'': A novelization of KOTOR with tweaks to give it a more narrative plot, stronger characters, and more action. Trapped on the city-planet of Taris and surrounded by enemies, a Republic soldier, Gaius Starr and his Captain search for their commanding officer, the Jedi Knight Bastila Shan. Gaius is slowly pulled into a fight for the fate of Republic and the entire galaxy.
* ''Comments'': As of yet, in-progress fic featuring a male main character. The writing and plotting are top-notch and the author uses a lot of the game's plots and subplots as guidelines, so the narrative flows surprisingly well.

[[ Identities of a Lost Soul]], by [[ ether-fanfic]]
* Recommended by: CryogenicCritic
* ''Status'': Ongoing
* Synopsis: A quiet scholar onboard the Endar Spire suffers a head injury that changes everything. Dragged unwillingly into a battle for the fate of the galaxy, the real struggle is a three-way conflict of emerging identities struggling for dominance, and fragments of the past that cloud the present. [Knights of the Old Republic re-telling with deviations and twists. Female PC.]
* ''Comments'': An in-progress novel of the game with a female protagonist. It focuses that focuses on the philosophy of the force. The characters are a major focus and feature a lot of depth and explanation that was sorely lacking in the original game.

[[ Revan's Story]], by [[ Ender Mahe]]
* Recommended by: CryogenicCritic
* ''Status'': Complete
* Synopsis: A retelling of Kotor with substantive changes. A darker tone, particularly as the story develops. Plot elements and characters are altered or changed altogether to make it feel more realistic. Rated T for now, for violence, horror, trauma. It's not all dark, there's a lot of comic and light as well. The goal is greater realism and deeper characters. Female PC.
* ''Comments'': A novel of the game with a female protagonist. Revan's story is an ambitious attempt to novelize the entirety of the KOTOR game. As one can tell from the title, it does clue the viewer in pretty heavily on the late-game plot twist, but since most people reading it [[ItWasHisSled know the twist]], this isn't a huge deal. The writing is satisfying, and focuses heavily on the emotions experienced by all the characters.

[[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.''

''[[ The Trouble With Crystals]]'' by [[ Sith Lord Darth Revan]]
* Recommended by @/USABobcat
* ''Status'': Dead
* ''Synopsis'': After the events of KOTOR, Revan resorts to Sith Alchemy to find the Dark Lord of the Sith. Unfortunately, it sends him a [[TimeTravel little bit farther]] [[Film/AttackOfTheClones than he planned.]]
* ''Comments'': A darkly snarky and moody Revan that fits the in-game hype, tossed into the beginning of the Clone Wars. Not kidding about fitting the in-game hype, this Revan is sarcastic, Mandalorian, an amazing Jedi, and a [[MemeticMutation tactical genius.]] This is not a PC somebody designed, [[MemeticBadass this is the Revan you hear about, the Revan you are told spook stories about.]] And leaving out Revan, the mixture of Movie, EU, and Book leaves nothing wanting. Sadly, it rarely ever updates, but what is already up is quite a read. In addition, the authors other stories are very similar, with exactly the same Darth Revan, in [[Franchise/MassEffect other scenarios]] [[Franchise/{{Halo}} and different worlds.]]
** The problem with this fic is that the Darth Revan presented here, is a JerkSue, being nearly insufferable.

[[ Every Hour on the Hour]], by [[ Jiara-Anatalis]]
* Recommended by: RandomTiger
* Status: Complete
* Synopsis: HK-47 goes on patrol on the Ebon Hawk. He scans the ship and its inhabitants. There are occasional interludes where HK has had some protocol installed by the Master or strikes up a conversation. Has some brief mentions of FemRevan/Carth. If you like HK you will like this fic.

''KOTOR: The Prodigy of Revan'' by [[ TheBeatBoys21Drifter]]
* Recommended by XXXKingofSorrow
* Vanished from the internet. Please post a link if found.
* ''Synopsis'': From the summary: In the skies above the Outer Rim world Taris, a Jedi battle fleet engages the forces of [[BigBad Darth Malak]] in a desperate effort to halt the Sith's galactic domination. Among the Jedi force, however, is an [[ProudWarriorRaceGuy elite few]] whose [[BigDamnHeroes actions will tip the scale of the war.]]
* ''Comments'': A well written and thought out [[AlternateUniverseFic AU fic]] that tells the story of [[KnightsOfTheOldRepublic KOTOR]] with a [[BadassArmy highly militarized race]] of [[{{BioAugmentation}} meta-humans]] added to the formula that runs on the [[MST3KMantra MST3K]] [[ Mantra]], and hints at a [[spoiler: Revan]]xBastila [[{{Shipping}} ship]]. Being a novelization or sorts, the story aspects are predictable but there is enough original material in the mix to keep things interesting.

''[[ The Sith Lords: I Dreamt of Malachor]]'' by MazeltovCocktail
* Recommended by {{Sepirahkt}}
* ''Status'': Dormant
* ''Synopsis'': A [[BetterThanCanon canon-divergent]] novelization of the second Knights of the Old Republic game. Told from the points of view of practically every character but Kreia, the droids, and the Exile, it explores the Exile's journey in a free-form setting that skips over the blander aspects of the game in favor of the story at its heart. Supposed to be the first in a trilogy, with the next two books exploring the Exile's life after the events of the game.

''[[ Yet Another [=KotOR=] Parody]]'' by Helena L
* Recommended by {{Sikon}}
* ''Status'': Complete
* ''Synopsis'': ''Yet Another [=KotOR=] Parody'', a ScriptFic by Helena L, which is ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin, and in particular interest to tropers.
* ''Comments'':
** Seconded by Doctor U. N. Owen. Possibly the funniest thing I have ever had the fortune to read in my entire LIFE.
** Thirded by Mariecat. Hilarious take on all the difficulties and annoyances of the first game while keeping true to the plot. Is there one for the second game?

''[[ Bump In The Night]]'' by [[ IndigoWolfe]] and [[ PenelopeSalt]]
* Recommended by {{randomfanboy}}
* ''Status'': Complete
* ''Synopsis'': Carth desperately wants some sleep, but a prank by Mission ends up making tonight the worst night of his life.
* ''Comments'': Really funny and well written one shot, turning Carth into a ChewToy. Pantslessness is a recurring motif, for example. There's a relationship between Dyran/Revan and Juhani, but it isn't the focus of the story.

''[[ Psychotic Man Slayers]]'' by [[ IndigoWolfe]] and [[ PenelopeSalt]]
* Recommended by {{randomfanboy}}
* ''Status'': Complete
* ''Synopsis'': Carth tries to patch things up with Dyran, and manages to upset every female on the ''Ebon Hawk''.
* ''Comments'': Sequel to ''Bump In The Night''. Somehow manages to be even funnier. Highlights include Dyran's 'HELP ME' look, and Bastila slapping Carth, although the ending is ''the'' CrowningMomentOfFunny. Dyran and Juhani's relationship continues but is still not the focus.

''[[ Kayashi K'oyayci]]'' by [[ Eyyowlf]]
* Recommended by Spark Moon
* ''Status'': Complete
* ''Synopsis'': From the summary: ''The Ebon Hawk makes a detour to Dantooine. Jedi business. No explanations. To kill time, and to get away, Canderous and Carth go on a hunting trip in the grasslands and talk about the Mandalorian Wars. Male Revan/Bastila, Female Exile mentioned .''
* ''Comments'': A delightful read utilizing an interesting -and some might say refreshing- approach to both Carth and Canderous' characters. Criminally underrated and certainly worth your time if you're looking for something fresh in KOTOR fan fic.
** sloth4: Seconded. A great little romp that explores the relationship of two major side characters.

''THE REVAN: Jaden Amnesia'' by [[ WeShouldntWriteWeShouldDance]]
* Recommended by TKA001
* Vanished from the internet. Please post a link if found.
* ''Synopsis'': A write-through fic of the first ''KOTOR'' game. Written in the first person and advertised as dark-sided male Revan (the titular "Jaden Amnesia") with numerous changes made to the characters, sidequests, and main plot.
* ''Comments'': Fits no category better than SoBadItsGood. The absurdly-named "Jaden Amnesia" is one of the most exquisite examples of a VillainSue I've ever encountered. He's a chain-smoking, (presumably) alcoholic, inexplicably powerful, foul-mouthed, bloodthirsty psychopath - all to a narmtastic extreme. The party members' personalities are similarly ravaged, most of them reduced to hammy, melodramatic caricatures. The story is also peppered with spelling mistakes and bizarre grammar, and most of the plot changes are ridiculous. Kashyyyk's planet quest is inexplicably changed to a war against Sith and Mandalorians (culminating in the planet's devastation at Jaden's hands), Jolee's old friend Sunry is changed into an insane cyborg war veteran called "Benedict Sunny", Bastila's mom is changed into some kind of mad scientist supervillain on Manaan, [[CrackPairing Bastila and Mission]] have a brief "friends-with-benefits"-type relationship, and more. The craziness just goes on and on and it's utterly impossible to take it seriously. I'm convinced the author is some kind of genius troll. He's persistent, too - up to 36 chapters as of this entry.

“[[ So Not My Problem]]” by [[ Sarah1281]]
* Recommended by KtheCloud, Ardvarkeating101
* Status : Complete , Type: Humor /parody
* Paring : Reven/ Baastilla
* Synopsis: All Revan wanted to do was stay alive and try to get with Bastila, in that order. He doesn't want to save the galaxy and he's not looking to help everyone he meets. Tragically, he's surrounded by hero types that keep trying to drag him along for the ride.”
* Don’t miss the sequel ''[[ The Jedi Kind of Had it Coming]]'' (Complete)

"[[ Affably Evil]] by [[ Sarah1281]]
* Recommended by Kthecloud, Ardvarkeating101
* Status: Complete
* Synopsis: "In a twist of fate, Malak is captured instead of Revan. The galaxy is sure the Sith's lack of activity after this just means Revan's planning something big but really he just can't be bothered to lead. He does, however, have a habit of meeting a certain new Jedi Alek wherever he happens to go. Not that Alek believes a word of what Revan says. So Not My Problem characterizations."
* Comments: Only two chapters in, and already quite funny, and heartwarming at the same time.

''[[ The Children]]'' by [[ rangermike]]
* Recommended by [[ SLotH4]]
* ''Status'': Complete
* ''Synopsis'': The children of Revan and Bastila, and the Exile and Brianna and their fight to confront the darkness once and for all on the Outer Rim.
* ''Comments'': An amazing sequel to the events of KOTOR and KOTOR 2. Thirty years after the death of Darth Malak, the children of the galaxy’s greatest heroes prepare for war against the True Sith. I can’t even describe the level of world building that takes place in this fic. The biggest issue is that “The Children - Book II” and the follow-up “Descended from Heroes and Villains” were both taken down years ago. I was able to make copies prior to their removal, and after rereading them I can say that this is the greatest KOTOR fanfic ever written. Shame it’s dead (author went on to publish original works), but it’s well worth your time.

''[[ Divergence]]'', by [[ mylordshesacatcus]]
* Recommended by: crystalqueer
* ''Status'': Complete
* ''Synopsis'': In another world, another life, the moment of hesitation goes no further. Bastila Shan, consumed by fear, raised from birth to place utter faith in the Council’s judgement, keeps her silence. Lie feeds upon half-truth upon lie and each careful sidestep only adds fuel to the smoldering, bitter contempt. Shown no honesty, Revan offers none. The once breaker of chains, turned in rage to bind the galaxy, returns. The Dark Lord rises from fury and flame and it is as inevitable as the death of stars. In another world, another life, the Republic falls. This is not that story.
* ''Comments'': An alternate take on the the premise that Revan retained her memory at the beginning of the game despite what the Jedi did, which was explored in another of the author's fics. It explores the idea of Revan's light side growth and her experience with the Jedi Council in a realistic way, touching on the trauma of various characters and allowing them to grow. Minor Revan/Bastila.

''[[ Resolutions]]'' by [[ Trillian4210]]
* Recommended by Tru Reader
* ''Status'': Complete
* ''Synopsis'': A new war is approaching and the Exile seeks to join Revan to fight it, but she'll need the help of a few of Revan's old friends. The end has come...
* ''Comments'': Resolutions gets recommended for being more than just a shipping fic. Taking place shortly after the events of the second ''Knights of the Old Republic'' title, this presents issues with the Exile's decision to go after Revan, as well as reintroduces several favorites (and not so favorites) from the original game too. Expands well into its own territory. Warning: Female Revan.

''[[ Love, Ass, and Arbitration]]'' by [[ IndigoWolfe]]

''[[ On Being A Sith Lord]]'' by [[ Darth Ammonite]]
* Recommended by B.B. Rain
* ''Status'': Complete
* ''Synopsis'': Having a Sith Lord in your head is bad...having a Sith Lord with a really foul sense of humor is even worse.
* ''Comments'': Wonderfully whimsical, a chronicle of the time from Malak revealing Sabine's (Revan's) past, to after the game, when Revan leaves in the Ebon Hawk. The interaction between Sabine and Revan is priceless, as is the bonding with the crew. The commentary about the virtues of Mandalorians alone...It also has serious moments, but they serve to underscore both the following and preceding humor.

''Fanfic/TailsOfTheOldRepublic'' by [[ Pyre-Vulpimorph]]
* Recommended by [=AmandaPandaPie1991=]
* ''Status'': Ongoing
* ''Synopsis'': Tails from Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog mysteriously awakens aboard the Republic capital ship, ''Endar Spire''. Stripped of his memory and his possessions, the adolescent Mobian must now come to terms with his new circumstances... and find his way home.
* ''Comments'': This fic is incredible. Basically, this is an attempt at novelizing the game with Tails inexplicably taking Revan's place. Tails starts out with his many skills and powers, and the author greatly expands on them, too: Tails is in full BadassBookworm mode here! The author draws a link between The Force and the various “chaos powers” of Sonic ‘verse. It feels like Mobius really could exist somewhere in the GFFA, and it’s left ambiguous whether it is or not. Is Tails ''actually'' Revan? How? How did he get there? We don’t know yet. Tails is a studly little teenager now, and while he's more confident (and snarky) now than when he was 8, he's still has trouble socializing. This leads to some great humor! He's still the kind and caring genius fox ''Sonic'' fans know, but it definitely shows what an additional 6 years of Sonic's influence can do to a boy! READ IT. -- Amanda
* ''Warnings'': Contains ShipTease between Tails & Mission.
