[[WMG: Authors and Websites]]

[[ NickelTheRed]] at
* Recommended by: Brytte Mystere
* Extremely good writer for this fandom. Specially when it comes to deal with Sebastian and Elizabeth. Author of the BEST version of Elizabeth Middleford I've ever read about.

[[ Female Heero Yuy/Shunhades]] at
* Recommended by: hailsagan
* Quite possibly the most honestly and unabashedly hilarious fanfiction that I have ever read came from this lovely writer. Though they are not a one trick pony and write a good variety of thing, ranging from twisted and weird, to sweet, and to so funny that you may just well die laughing. ''Something New'' is especially good.

[[ Lark Nightjar]] at
* Recommended by: hailsagan
* Extremely dark but elegant fic. ''Mistress'' showcases a grown up demon Ciel as a butler (with Sebastian as his ever-snarky footman, of course) to a woman on the path for revenge not unlike the contract the Ciel had with Sebastian as a human. Many of Lark's fic involves original characters but they are all very interesting, well-developed and fit into the context of the original series while still having lives of their own. Her writing style also fits well with the more poetic writing style that authors during the 19th century had,but is not over-the-top dramatic or distracting. As a warning, many of these fics are rather dark and adult in nature so a trigger warning applies here in the case of anyone being triggered by dark imagery or non-graphic depictions of sexual content.

[[ Crystal Allen]] at
* Recommended by: Camsci, escapedd
* Very gifted author of general fics, often somewhat dark in nature but always with enchanting, dream-like imagery, spot-on characterization and intriguing plots. Her works are free from any misspellings, grammatical errors or clichés. Her only flaw is that she is not very productive, having only written 6 Kuroshitsuji-fanfics so far. On the other hand, all 6 are of extremely high quality and highly enjoyable.

[[ 23Murasaki]] at [=AO3=]
* Recommended by: fsdfsdfsd
* Pairing(s): Agni/Sebastian (subtle)
* This author writes stories in her series, known as ''[[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Everyone Lives!]]'' It's a sweet, well-written series of stories about a world where the original premise is the same as in cannon, but despite that the characters mange to care about each other and live happy lives. What makes the series unique is that the stories rarely alter the characters cannon characterization, except for Sebastian, and even so 23Murasaki puts a lot of effort into analyzing his character and showing [[ReconstructedTrope how a demon can be decent.]] If you're looking for sweet and fluffy without OOC, try this.
* The same author also has a set of [[FracturedFairyTale Fractured Fairytales]] that run the gamut from sweet and fluffy to "starring William T Spears as Beauty".

''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.''

''[[ The 31st]]'' by artbug
* Recommended by: [=OracleSeven=]
* Status: Complete
* Synopsis: A brief story of the month before Ciel gained his butler and their meeting.

''[[ Draw the Curtains]]'' by mellish

''[[ An Unbreakable Bond]]'' by Ennauethys
* Recommended by: [=AngelFlower=], @/LittleMissSophie
* Status: Dead
* Synopsis: An unbreakable bond created through the threads of darkness as they engulf the light of a soul, marking him for eternity as he chooses to stay in his darkness and embrace it. Through our actions the honesty of light creates the indifference of darkness.

''[[ ROMAN'S REVENGE ]]'' by Georgiana Spencer
* Recommended by: hailsagan
* Status: Dead
* Synopsis: Funny, witty, and refreshing. There is no other story like this written for Kuroshitsuji. The narration of this story alone deserves a through praise, not to mention the content. This AU takes the stereotypes of Kuroshitsuji fanfiction and turns them upside down in a sarcastic, satirical portrayal that not only provides intelligent comment on the nature of fandom, but also life itself. Or at least life as a college student.
* Other: may contain content that is triggering for some readers, please see the story for full list of warnings.

''[[ Winter Roses]]'' by Kantayra
* Recommended by: fsdfsdfsd
* Status: Complete
* Synopsis: Sebastian gives Finnian leave to throw a welcome party for Snake. Only with no fireworks. (So, of course, there are fireworks.)

''[[ Afraid]]'' by liketolaugh
* Recommended by: fsdfsdfsd
* Status: Complete
* Synopsis: The people around Ciel scared Soma. From Lau and his hidden malice, to Undertaker's morbid humor, to his servants' weapons and veiled pasts, he was always frightened of someone. But what scared him most of all was how every one of them accepted Ciel as their leader and never once questioned his authority. That was why Ciel scared Soma. (Copied from [=AO3=].)

* Status: Complete

''[[ Domina Esques]]'' by Shu of the Wind
* Recommended by: @/LittleMissSophie, Aleise Xian
* Status: Complete
* Synopsis: At sixteen, Lizzy Middleford has been on a tour of the continent for a year, and has returned a different, sharper person than before...and she's determined to take her place at Ciel's side, whether he likes it or not. All hail the Queen's Paladin.

* Other: Has a sequel, ''[[ Regina Magna]]''.

''[[ Defending the Sky]]'' by Shu of the Wind
* Recommended by: fsdfsdfsd
* Status: Complete
* Synopsis: I will be Artemis and give you the moon. I will be Apollo and give you the sun. I will be Theia, the shining light of the clear blue sky. I will be the one thing you believe you can never have again.
* Pairing: Lizzy/Ciel
* Comments: Put simply, it's a character study for Elizabeth, probably written in response to chapter 58. It adheres to the Victorian England morals that say [[ValuesDissonance a woman should strive to be a wife, and a wife should strive to be whatever he husband needs her to be.]] Now imagine Lizzy growing into these morals, knowing that she's going to marry [[DirtyBusiness Ciel]]- and what [[ActionGirl Ciel needs in a wife]] [[SilkHidingSteel isn't what most english noblemen need in a wife.]]

''[[ At the Crossing of the Lines]]'' by aperfectdevil
* Recommended by: getjuiced
* Status: Complete
* Synopsis: Ciel finds a hidden room containing his father's secret journals, hoping to find more information on the deaths of his parents. Instead he finds nothing more than the scandalous memoirs of a dandy detective, and a myriad of disturbing things that can never be unseen. This is a fanmade prequel to the manga series.
* Pairing: Vincent/Diederich
* Comments: This fic, while presented as a prequel to the kuroshitsuji manga, takes a different turn when the main pairing isn't of Vincent and his wife Rachel, but of Vincent and his 'loyal german dog', Diederich. It is a very different take compared to the manga and seems to focus more on supernatural creatures than the original manga. This story is also of a much darker nature than the canon, given that Vincent is a very different kind of protagonist than Ciel. However, the changes to the canon themes is refreshing to see and very interesting to read.

[[ The Book of Damnation]] by [=NickeltheRed=]
* Recommended by: [=BrytteMyst=]
* Status: Ongoing [[note]]updated semi-regularly[[/note]]
* Synopsis: A tale of an unravelling secret long since kept amongst the Underworld. Yet Sebastian has known these details all along. Elizabeth isn't who she seems to be, not even as a Knight. Although, one day she learns from a certain someone precisely why she was born. How will Ciel react? " Long live the Heir." [[note]]It starts at the end of chapter 66 of the manga (Easter Arc), picking up a few years after that. So Elizabeth is like 18 or 19.[[/note]]
* Pairing: Sebastian/Elizabeth, though there's Ciel/Elizabeth too, mostly one-sided [[note]]for now[[/note]]
