''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.''

''Literature/ParadiseLost'' by John Milton
* Recommended by {{Salnax1}}, {{Jordan}}, @/{{Narsil}}
* ''Status'': Complete
* ''Synopsis'': Satan, having recently lost in his rebellion, organizes his followers and plans the downfall of God's newest creation: Adam and Eve. Drama ensues.
* ''Comments'': One of the better-known fanfics out there, Paradise Lost is most notable for its style and characterization. Like ''Literature/TheAeneid'', another influential fanfic, it is written as an epic poem. The descriptions of people, events, and places are excellent, though they are perhaps too descriptive. Satan, Adam, and Eve are remarkably fleshed out, and are given realistic motives and feelings.

''Literature/LambTheGospelAccordingToBiff'' by Creator/ChristopherMoore
* Recommended by @/{{Sessalisk}}
* ''Status'': Complete
* ''Synopsis'': The years of Jesus Christ's life that were not covered in ''Literature/TheBible''.

''Literature/TheRedTent'' by Anita Diamant
* Recommended by: {{Tropers/Narsil}}
* ''Status'': Complete
* ''Synopsis:'' The life of Dinah (a daughter of the Genesis patriarch Jacob), from her childhood with Jacob's wives and other children, through her tragic romance with Shechem, to her (extra-biblical) later life in Egypt

''Literature/TheDivineComedy'' by Dante Alighieri
* Recommended by {{Tropers/Divra}}
* ''Status'': Complete
* Synopsis: A self-insert fic, where the author takes a tour through the setting, guided by a childhood paragon of his.
* Comments: Also, like the previously mentioned ''Literature/ParadiseLost'', written in poetry form. It does very little to expand upon the main characters, but fleshes out the setting in wonderful ways, which is something fans will appreciate. It also tucks in some pointed jabs at well-known haters and several {{Big Name Fan}}s of the original appear as minor characters. Has contributed a lot to popular perception of the original. A bit wonky to read, because of the format, but well worth it.

''TheBookOfMormon'' by Joseph Smith
* Recommended by {{Tropers/TitaniumDragon}}
* ''Status'': Complete
* Synopsis: The lost tribe of Israel comes to America in ancient times, and is later visited by UsefulNotes/{{Jesus}} himself.
* Comments: Clocking in at over 268,000 words, this story is intended as a sequel to the New Testament, intended to bring ancient America in on the action. Its FrameStory is that it was decoded from a set of golden plates with the help of an angel and a special device, revealing the secret history of Israelites in prehistoric America, the troubles they faced here, and Jesus coming to the Americas to deliver his message here as well. Very America-centric, this is by far and away the most popular fanfic in the state of Utah. It has a lot of fans, so reading it can help you understand where they're coming from, even if they seem to take it a bit too seriously at times.

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

Literature/LowlandsOfScotlandSeries by Liz Curtis Higgs
* Recommended by: @/{{Nocturna}}
* ''Status'': Complete
* Synopsis: The tale of Jacob, Leah, Rachel, and Dinah, set in the Scottish lowlands in 1791-1793 and 1810. The books are historically accurate and yet remarkably close to the original considering that fact.
* Pairings: Jacob/Leah, Jacob/Rachel, Dinah/Shechem
* Warnings: The fourth book contains non-graphic rape.
