Title of the Fanfic by Author OR Fic Trope Page, by Author (Link)
Recommended by: Troper Name(s).
* Synopsis: What's the story about? Give here a brief summary of the plot. It would be also useful to point out in what moment of the series the story takes place. If it's a Gen Fic but it has some romantic elements, note here the characters involved too.
* Pairing(s): If it's a Shipping Fic, list here the pairings that feature in the fic (warn here if it's het, male slash or female slash). If it's a Gen Fic, remove this line. To tell the difference between the two, notice if the focus of the fic is on a romantic relationship or if it focuses on the other aspects of the story. In case of doubt, classify the story according to the genres it's been tagged: the Romance tag for Shipping, absence of that tag for Gen Fic.
* Tags: If any are known. This would be things like {{WAFF}}, {{Lemon}}, DarkFic, any known {{Crossover}}s etc.

* I absolutely love this author. She is a great writer that I think everyone should know about. Her best stories are [[ Serendipity]], my favourite (mind you I was to put only this fic but I couldn't forget the others!), [[ Preserving You]], and [[ BitterSweet]]. Those three are some of the best fics I have ever read. I am so glad that I have found this site so that I can share them with others, however they're all Sonamy, but I still think you should take a read. Recommended by @/SpeedsMyGame.
** Serendipity
*** Summary: Being blind never stopped Amy from wanting to be normal. She crosses paths with Sonic, a rude yet charming character that she has to deal with on her first high school experience. Only, will she be able to reach her goals without falling for this young fellow or will it all come tumbling down?
*** Pairings: Sonamy.
*** Status: Completed
** Bittersweet
*** Summary: He's smart. He's handsome. He's the school's idol. That was Amy's first impression of him until he dissed her, then Sonic becomes her step-brother whom she must get along with at home, but what'll happen at school? What troubles will blossom there...?
*** Pairings: Sonamy.
*** Status: Completed
** Preserving You
*** Summary: He received a letter from his future self, reciting: "There are a lot of regrets I hold. One of them is that Amy is no longer with us five years from now. Don't let important things go by so quickly. Please watch over her this time."
*** Pairings: Sonamy, possibly other pairings.
*** Status: In progress

* Tags: Serendipity is a high school one, however does not revolve around it, unlike Bittersweet. Bittersweet may be high school, but it is not as cliché as most high school fics. Preserving You, however, looks to be interesting. Unlike the other two, this one revolves around the normal Sonic universe. They are all Sonamy stories, but I still suggest a read.

[[ tpcb000]]
* Specifically, [[ High School]], [[ The New Generation]] and [[ College Life]], those three fics are so big that they deserve their own page. Recommended by @/ChaoStorm.
** High School
*** Summary: Sonic and the crew are requisitioned by G.U.N. to go to highschool undercover to keep an eye on Eggman, the [[EvilTeacher assistant principal]] at California Mobius High School, but wind up having plenty of zany adventures all the same.
*** Pairings
*** Full canon: Crails, Knuxouge, Shadamy, Silvaze
*** Part canon: SonOC
*** Full OC: Seven sets of them
** Next Generation
*** Summary: The children of the original group along with some other kids go to California Mobius High School for the Gifted. There they'll be able to better understand their powers and fight an evil organization of the children of the original evil group. Some other teenagers who want to either take revenge on the original group's children or who just like violence, most of these kids have powers too.
*** Pairings: 17
** College Life
*** Summary: The group from the last story now go to the Mobian section of NYU and must fight off a new very evil group called the Avengers with super special powers from their stones.
*** Pairings: Seven more on top of the old ones.
* Tags: In general, these fics should be tagged epic for sheer size, but College Life does have two lemons in it.

Netraptor's [[ Sonicverse]]
* Recommended by Mokyn
* Summary: (from the page itself) This series started out as story adaptations of my favorite Sonic games, but over the years it became a sprawling universe that embraces SegaSonic, Archie, WesternAnimation/SonicSatAM, and every other cool Sonic thing that came along. The stories are long and involved. Enjoy the ride.
* The website itself has some pretty good stuff, even if not many authors update. Of those that do, RaeLogan has a sprawling series, AiUotani is beginning something with decent writing, T_Striker has some decent stories and some crazy AUs (and promises to eventually start a series with AiUotani in which each of their AU Scourges will come together), and Speedy has some excellent oneshots and longer stories.

''An Author's Nightmare'' series by [[ Falconess]]
* Recommended by: @/{{ClaudeLv250}}
* Synopsis: An intriguing and unique series for two reasons - it is a subversion of self-insertion stories by conception, and each story is written by a different author, tackling a different Sonic universe. Storylines usually feature an ordinary human and Sonic fan getting pulled into the corresponding Sonic universe against their will by the Dimensional Matter Displacer and having their fandom exploited against them by the villain. The author is equipped with the temperament and skillset of a normal human being and must use their wits to get out of their sticky situations and assist their heroes. ''[[ An Author's Nightmare]]'' kicks the series off and features Joanie getting pulled into the wacky world of ''WesternAnimation/AdventuresOfSonicTheHedgehog''. ''[[ An Author's Nightmare 2: Going Underground]]'' has [[GodModeSue Ryan]] meeting the triplets from ''WesternAnimation/SonicUnderground'', though that story and Ryan's representation [[BlackSheep went a little off course]] (a [[ fifth anniversary edition]] was written to revamp the story, but it's still the weakest link in the series by far). April meets the [[WesternAnimation/SonicSatAM Freedom Fighters of Knothole]] in ''[[ An Author's Nightmare 3: Enter Knothole]]'', and ''An Author's Nightmare 4: Trapped in Tokyo'' features Sipp lost and trapped in ''Anime/SonicX'', with a healthy dose of VideoGame/SonicAdventure2 chaos. ''An Author's Nightmare 5: Hymns of the Antithesis'' dealt with Archie comics' Knuckles storylines. ''An Author's Nightmare 6'' was planned but never materialized. The future of the series may depend on the interest of future authors.
** ''An Author's Nightmare'' by Falconess
*** Summary: I found myself lost in a world I knew everything and yet... really nothing about. Will I ever find the way home?
*** Comments: Doubles as [[ADayInTheLimelight a day in the limelight]] considering how much focus the SSSSS Squad gets here. It's clear the author was fond of the characters and explores who they could be and what they could accomplish without Robotnik's toxic influence. Has several heartfelt moments as Joanie meets her idols while trying to help their sworn enemies.
** ''An Author's Nightmare 3: Enter Knothole'' by [[ LittleTiger488]]
*** Summary: I'm in a world I've always dreamed of being apart of. But is it really what I truly wanted? Or am I just desperate for an escape from reality?
*** Comments: April gets schooled on just how real this world is when she learns the hard way about the "lost episodes": several dangerous and traumatic events that happened "between" episodes of the show.

[[ Gitzyrulz']] Sonic X alternate universe depicting Eggman and Chris as father and son.
* Recommended by Bombeihey
* She mostly draws. But what little fan fiction she has written of it is mostly heartfelt and shows potential. Her redesign and characterization of Chris is also pretty [[RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap likable]], from what she has shown. He's instead a child who has grown up in nearly complete isolation almost his whole life, and spies on Sonic for Eggman, giving his presensce more of a purpose and making his clingy tendencies [[TheWoobie all the more sad]]. Eggman's characterization, from what there's shown, also seems more human without putting him in a [[DracoInLeatherPants certain]] second pair of leather pants.

[[folder: General Fics]]
''Stories focused on the family and the (un)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 Missing Chao]]'' by [=PrincessPandaLover=]
* Recommended by Tropers/theguywithanaccount
* ''Status'': Ongoing
* ''Synopsis'': "All Chao in the world go missing in one night mysteriously. Sonic and co must split up into two teams and cover many miles to seek the missing Chao. Even with support from 2 strange beings, [[HilarityEnsues hilarity]], excitement, and sometimes tragedy ensues in the comedic adventure fan fic."
* ''Pairings'': Sonic/Amy, Shadow/Blaze, Silver/Floee (an OC), Knuckles/Rouge, Tails/Cream

''[[ The Boiling Blood]]'' by [=SilverAndKaylee15=]
* Recommended by Tropers/PrincessPandaTrope
* ''Status'': Completed
* ''Synposis'': The fanfic is mainly about Silver and Kaylee (an OC)'s family and bloodline, and, with the exception of most of Part 1, takes place in a universe where ''VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehog2006'' did happen. Part 1, ''Family Forever'', focuses on Kaylee Collie, serving Mephiles' servant, who goes on an adventure to discover who her family was, including her half-brother, Silver the Hedgehog. Part 2, ''A Past Forgotten'', serves as a prequel and focuses on the tragic lives of Kaylee and Silver's parents, Venice the Mink and Lynda Collie, from teenage-hood to parenthood. Part 3, ''Full of Regrets'', takes place about 200 years before the events of the previous parts and focuses on Shadow the Hedgehog and his friendship (later love life) with Martina. Expect [[LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters lots of]] [[OriginalCharacter fan characters]] and some TearJerker moments.

''[[ The Sonic Wind: The Beginning of Everything]]'' by Cookirini
* Recommended by Tropers/{{Unknownlight}}
* Status: Complete
* Synopsis: "Sonic wind: the wind resistance encountered by pilots when nearing Mach 1.0, also known as the 'wall of air'. It is also the wind that accompanies the speed of a certain hedgehog. A historically based experiment in Sonic fanfiction."

''[[ Memories of infinite's past]]'' by Ultimate anarchy
* Recommended by Tropers/PrincessPandaTrope
* ''Status'': Complete
* ''Synoposis'': Set after ''VideoGame/SonicForces'', Infinite is rejected by Eggman, for being defeated by Sonic. In his sleep, Infinite recites his TroubledPast, involving his [[AbusiveParents abusive father]] and him running away to join the Jackal Squad. There are lots of spelling and grammar errors, but if you don't mind those, this story will take you on a [[TearJerker tear-jerking]] ride and [[JerkassWoobie change the way you see Infinite]].

''[[ Blue Hedgehog Psychology]]'' by Scarabbug

''[[ The Brown and Tolbert Series]]'' by Robert Brown and Francis Tolbert
* Recommended by Tropers/{{Kitch}}
* ''Status'': Complete
* ''Synopsis'': This is an extremely rich series that follows the events after the end of ''WesternAnimation/SonicSatAM''. It's an old series as well, started in 1997. The first saga (first 13 chapters) includes new characters, and was one of the earliest to get serious into pairing Antoine and Bunnie. It also has a different take on the characters of King Acorn and Ixis Naugus. Over the years, life has gotten in the way, particularly after Robert Brown required a kidney transplant in 1999, then a hip replacement in 2009. There hasn't been an update since 2009, but it isn't officially over.

''[[ The CRONIES]]'' by [[ "The Triple Peeps"/Apollo Alexandre]]
* Recommended by ApolloA
* ''Status'': Dormant
* ''Synopsis'': What was originally going to be a "Friends"-style parody turned into an episodic and comedic adventure, as Sonic the Hedgehog and friends ([[MyFriendsAndZoidberg and sometimes Eggman]]) team up to stop all sorts of bad guys ([[TokenEvilTeammate and sometimes Eggman]]) from taking over the world and interrupting their carefree and lazy days. Noted for involving many other series, while focusing primarily on the Sonic-verse, such as [[SuperMarioBros the Mario Series]], Manga/ExcelSaga, Manga/CardcaptorSakura, [[VideoGame/FZero F-Zero]], VideoGame/RivalSchools, StreetFighter, and many others. Also prevalent are the "commercials" between segments that have Eggman trying to appeal to the masses/selling off cheesy wares/having absolutely nothing to do with him. Currently on a hiatus.
