Everything ranging from silly one-shots to a long multi-story adventure. Small mistakes here or there but nothing that takes away from the plot-line or mood. A great place to go for AU or Apple shenanigans.
A rather proficient author, this person rarely ever makes any spelling and grammar mistakes or any typos. The person has already written 76 works, 71 of which are connected to the Assassin's Creed fandom and all are a worthwhile read.
This author seems to focus mostly on stories about Subject 16, often through AU fics. All of their work is incredibly well written, with engaging plots and fascinating character development and relationships.
Synopsis: Isra a dirt-poor peasant girl taken in by the Hashshashin at an early age. We follow her as she grows up and is educated in everything from history and languages to the fine art of sneaking. Along the way, she acquires a arrogantly laconic (or laconically arrogant) partner in the form of Altair.
Comments: The prose is lovely and understated, and Isra is exactly intelligent and witty enough to be engaging and relatable, not annoying. Characters, even small ones, are sharply sketched and you get a good impression of life within the Masyaf fortress, and everywhere else Isra ends up. Altair (Perfectly in character, and fleshed out with a couple of grumpy little Pet the Dog moments) doesn't pop up for a while, and doesn't become a main character until even later, but you hardly notice, because the story is utterly engrossing. Seriously, callalili, change the names and try to get a publisher up in this bitch.
Seconded by Gadeel. The story doesn't try to impose modern morality into it and instead revels in its Values Dissonance, and Isra doesn't pull any sort of grrl power in the Crusades kind of thing, which is a comforting thing after reading so many of those. It's rather well-researched and the tidbits of information the reader isn't likely to know can be found at the bottom of the page for convenience, but for some reason, callalili likes to remind the reader that Guy de Lusignon got his ass kicked in Hattin.
Synopsis: Altair deals with the aftermath of Al Mualim's betrayal and with the challenges and temptations the Piece of Eden poses. (Written before AC2 came out.)
Comments: Starts off a bit shakily, but really picks up as the story delves deeper into Altair's psychology and the way the Piece of Eden is affecting him as well as the choices he is forced to make. All in all a great exploration of the "He who increaseth wisdom, increaseth sorrow" phrase.
Synopsis: Harry, Ron and Hermione go to Desmond and co. for help between Half-Blood Prince and Deathly Hallows simultaneous to post-AC2, but an accident causes them and some pursuing Death Eaters to be thrown back in time to Renaissance Italy where they meet Ezio and Leonardo.
Comments: A funny romp that catches the voice of all involved quite well, while not neglecting the badass action aspects.
I am going to have to respectfully disagree. I still think people should give this a look BEFORE knocking it, but a lot of the story is inconsistently built, and badass action aspects are scattered few and far between, not to mention at least a dozen Missed Moments Of Awesome
Synopsis: Fanfic through Robert de Sable's point of view.
Comments: Interesting and historical accurate Sympathetic P.O.V. fanfic told from Robert de Sable's eyes and thoughs. We gets details about his life and how it formed him to the Knight Templar he had become, and it does a great way to paint those details.
Synopsis: One night, Ezio returns to Leonardo's with a woman who appeared out of nowhere before him and survived not just a stabbing but a very long fall. Neither have any idea how much their world will change for her presence.
Synopsis: Ezio hunts a Templar splinter group named "The Followers of the Black Book" throughout Italy. It's better than it sounds.
Comments: Retro-Rebel's stories can be hit and miss, but he's managed to keep a steady record of good ones since late 2009. Some details from the game are incorrect, like Ezio having blue eyes instead of hazel ones, but overall it's a good story about revenge and love.
Further Comments: Action sequences are nicely done, and there are flashbacks to flesh out the backstory.
Synopsis: Ezio, Leonardo, Rosa, and Antonio go to see a musical... about Ezio.
Comments: Just as hilarious as it sounds.
Further Comments: Seriously, the musical has Ezio as a scrawny blonde guy who makes decisions based on whim.
Well, I'm kind of in the middle with it. It is, at times, hilarious, but in my opinion, it was a little awkwork, as if the author was thinking this up as they went along and was stopping in the middle to think up the next bit. Just my opinion though...
Synopsis: Threatened by a direct attack on their maestro, those who once paraded the streets now mimic the eagles that they hunt, and take instead to the shadows.
Comments: Ezio vs. the Templar agents from Brotherhood with a double agent Leonardo in the mix. A chillingly excellent depiction of how much more dangerous the Templars became when they changed tactics and became more reminiscent of the Order in the modern era. Ezio's characterisation is a masterful balance of legendary skill and human vulnerability, of sharp judgement and fatal personality flaws - Boring Invincible Hero is subverted. Also, this is one of the few fics in which Leonardo's work with the Borgia plays a central role, and likely one of the best Ezio & Leonardo non-shipping fics. The writing style is beautiful. Well worth a read.
Synopsis: (Underworld crossover)) John Ledra, a Werewolf-Vampire hybrid, has been fighting for Viktor against the lycans while living in Florence Italy. During this time, He is trained by Ezio Auditore while working as a Death Dealer. His past unkown to him, his journey is one of self-discovery as he leaves numerous marks on history.
Comments: First chapter is a little rough, but it keeps getting better the more of it you read. It works well in blending two universes that shouldn't really exist together. I love how well the character of John Ledra develops and the O Cs he meets along his journey spanning centuries. Some scenes are rather emotional and I look forward to more.I don't want to give away too much of the story.
Synopsis: Maybe a one-shot. Ezio thinks himself mad when he starts hearing voices, our voices.
Comments: This one's quite literally Exactly What It Says on the Tin. Ezio hears a woman's voice cussing a storm at him, especially whenever he messes up a jump between buildings. It's a surprisingly well written work, though a little short. I think this would have been rather interesting if taken further, but it's pretty good on it's own.
Synopsis: The beginning and fall of the Prowler, from his untimely death from the betrayal of Fiora Cavazza. What if, while he lay dying on the docks, another man happened to be there?
Comments: It seems people really seem to like Prowler, he keeps popping up in fanfiction as the main character. This one takes on the idea that if Ezio had witnessed Fiora killing Prowler he would have taken him back to the Assassin's HQ and tried to get him to join the brotherhood. The prowler seems to exhibit signs of having been a Feral Child in this, which would explain a lot of things, however it's also quite realistic and a good read.
Synopsis: Apple-shenanigans. Ezio is shrunk and gains new appendages - he needs to find Leonardo and somehow change back. But there are challenges on the way, and Ezio beginning to be distracted by many of his new instincts.
Comments: This one is a bit ridiculous, I have to admit, but it's a fun read and it's really funny to imagine Ezio as a tiny humanoid with cat ears and tail and Leonardo having furry ears and a long fluffy tail.
Synopsis: Ezio never realized how strong Leonardo was, that is, until he came to free him from a cell in Cesare's dungeon.
Comments: It seems the author wrote this as a fill for an AC kinkmeme, and did a bang up job too. I'm not too sure whether or not Leonardo really could have been strong enough to able to bend steel bars, but it's a hilarious read nonetheless.
Actually, Leonardo bending steel bars is historically accurate. It was one of his party tricks.
Synopsis: A one-shot back story of Amunet, the Egyptian who would eventually come to assassinate Queen Kleopatra VII.
Comments: A very good read, the author did their research and it shows. It seems that this work is implying that Amunet was actually of the famous Ptolemy dynasty, and that she wanted Cleopatra dead for more...personal reasons.
Synopsis: March 23, 1775 is the day most Americans remember as Mister Patrick Henry's speech. "Give me Liberty or Give me Death!" However what most Americans don't know is that very day, in the shadows of Richmond's streets, there was a man watching over all. There was also a young woman running away from British soldiers after calling them numbskulls. Obviously she's a bit out of her time.
Comments: I know what your thinking; just another self insert OC right? But just give it a try, it's not as cliche as it seems. Sure it starts out slow but get to about chapter 4 and it REALLY starts picking up. You can tell by reading how much research the author did for this. It's jam packed with historical facts the game doesn't even touch on! Sure, it's got it's ups and downs but for an OC fic it's pretty good.
Synopsis: Abstergo Industries has created a Persocom that is, in effect, supposed to be the ultimate weapon. She escapes, however, which isn't a good thing for those who've invested so much time into developing her. Has its own page here. AU due to having been started before the release of Assassin's Creed III as well as The Chain.
Comments: Features Daniel Cross as its primary villain, albeit with slightly different characterization from The Chain onward. Despite the shared universe between Platinum Angel and Eden's Diary, each can be understood on its own.
Summary Pre-AC AU - After an attack on their village leaves them orphaned and desperate, Malik and Kadar become Al Mualim's newest pupils. Altair, the master's star novice, is less than thrilled, but all Malik cares about is keeping his little brother safe... -Altair/Malik-
PairingsAltair x Malik
CommentsI'm pretty surprised no one recommended this yet. This is an author's lovechild of what Malik was like before he came under Al Mualim and what was his interaction with Altair was like. The flow is awesome and it's a very long door stopper. With just 21 chapter, it's almost 200,000 words. Also Altair is much more fun here compared to his canon counterpart. Plenty of mood whiplashes, tear jerkers, and funny moments. It's like a coming of age story, except Malik officially becomes a man at 10. Also, the author did plenty of research before delving on to the setting, which is awesome. A lot of the elements of the setting are well-researched and the culture is pretty accurate. Very rare on fanfics that are closely tied in with actual history.
Warnings Graphic M/M, torture scenes, and mood whiplashes.
