Authors, and Websites

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.

Abreaction by Jace911.
  • Recommended by pyrotorch246
  • Synopsis: Abreaction has the same basic premise as Here Be Dragons, so Taylor gets Lung's powers instead of her canon ones, and one day she snaps. The story starts after she's been captured by the PRT, and explores just how thoroughly broken Taylor is instead of focusing on a Roaring Rampage of Revenge. It also manages to be even more depressing than Worm ever was, which takes some doing.

  • Clockwork by Xomniac.
    • Recommended by Ack Sed. Seconded by Robinton
    • Synopsis: Lung's gang is attacked by an insane, giggly robot. The fight attracts the attention of the Protectorate. Before anyone can do anything, though, other robots of the same design shut her down and spirit her away. Who is their mysterious creator?
      • Robinton's one complaint: Clockwork's power is, frankly, overpowered. It should be 2-4 powers, not 1. To contrast, everything else: Clockwork gets pitted against enough opponents to largely make up for her overpoweredness, the story has twice its fair share of CMOHs and CMOAs, and it recently got readers to cheer for Armsmaster.

    Gather by CnJLC.
