''Stories focused on romantic relationships between the cast.''

''[[ A Small Crime]]'' by Katy-Kale
* Recommended by deekin
* ''Status'': Complete
* ''Pairing'': Artie/OC
* ''Synopsis'': "What if, instead of Shrek, there was a teenage girl? Things would be a lot more different, that's for sure. Out of the blue, she just turns up at Arthur's Academy. Suddenly, the dull school isn't dull anymore, & Artie's life will never be the same again."
* ''Comments'': Shrek is replaced by an OC that is humourous (acting as a {{Foil}} placed [[SavvyGuyEnergeticGirl alongside Artie]] to [[HilarityEnsues good effect]]), entertaining and has her own backstory (which is told using an interesting JigsawPuzzlePlot). The events of ''Shrek the Third'' are then played out [[DarkerAndEdgier differently]]. The dialogue for Artie, Puss and Donkey matches their personalities exactly. This Troper would go so far as to say that it's [[BetterThanCanon better than the third film]] of which it [[FixFic is based on]].

''[[ It's a Happily Ever After, After All]]'' by [[ hanny spoon]]
* Recommended by [=N8han11=]
* ''Status'': Complete
* ''Pairing'': Prince Charming/Rapunzel, [[spoiler: one-sided (on Charming's end) Charming/Fiona]]
* ''Synopsis'': What if Charming's sword didn't miss? AU.
* ''Comments'': What if Prince Charming successfully managed to kill Shrek at the climax of ''WesternAnimation/ShrekTheThird''? This fic presents a dark yet well-written look at the rise of Charming's reign as king, [[spoiler: followed by his fall and [[RedemptionEqualsDeath eventual redemption]]]]. It also has a companion piece in [[ The Second Stay]], which goes into detail about Fiona's life and pregnancy after being banished to her tower.

[[WMG: Crossover Fics]]

''[[ Of Ogres and Kings]]'' by [[ Snargaluff Pod]]
* Recommended by [=N8han11=]
* ''Crossover with'': ''Franchise/HarryPotter''
* ''Status'': Hiatus
* ''Synopsis'': When King Harold suddenly croaks, Shrek learns he will have to rule the land of Far, Far Away, unless he can find a suitable heir to the throne. The most-promising candidate is Fiona's first cousin once removed, Harry. Along with Donkey and Puss in Boots, Shrek sets out to bring Harry back with them, but doing so is a bigger challenge, and a tad more magical, than they expected.
* ''Comments'': Basically, this charming fic is what would happen if Fiona's cousin happened to be Harry Potter. Everyone appears to be in character, and while the story hasn't quite begun yet, it's still [[BetterThanCanon better written]] than the actual ''WesternAnimation/ShrekTheThird''.
