Word of warning: CoolShades and [[ThisIsADrill tons of drills]] do not automatically make a good TTGL fanfic.

They do, however, get bonus points.

* Recommended by {{@/Banchoking}}
* ''Status'': Dormant
* ''Crossing over with'': Series/Code Geass.
* ''Synopsis'': After Kamina dies, he finds himself in the slums of Area Eleven. Takes place at the very start of the first season of Code Geass. I was skeptical at first, but this is easily one of if not THE best fanfic I've ever read. Characterization is perfect and Kamina's choatic (insane) personality really spices up the normally dark and depressing world of Code Geass without ever leaving character or completely ruining the actual characters or events. If anything, he makes a good show BETTER! Read it if you love either series.
