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.Ask Rachel Alucard by xm0123
Synopsis: Rachel Alucard gets hold of a Windows 7 laptop and decides to open a blog in which she answers question from several reviewers about the Blazblue universe. Hilarity Ensues.
Comments: Quite interesting, but the amazing fact that Rachel says always on character, without derailing her personality is something unique and rare in the realm of fanfiction. I congratulate this guy for making a really good fic that keeps everything on character while adding the humor that I like so much.
Synopsis: Even if it's to save someone she loved very much, Litchi Faye-Ling just doesn't feel right in joining NOL. Then Hazama tried to draw her selfish side in hopes to make her into a selfish, despicable bitch, and the only one that can help her is herself... would she fall for Hazama's draws or would she keep her kindness?
Comments: If you are distraught by Litchi's Face-Heel Turn, this is the fic for you. I know that most people always believed Litchi to be good despite being antagonist as of current, but if you still have doubts... READ. THIS. FIC.
Pairings: Ragna/Tsubaki, as well as a couple of others which are under wraps at the moment.
Synopsis: The sequel to On Strange Wings. Ragna and Tsubaki's relationship remains the main focus, but every character in Blazblue has an important role in the story, and some of them form romantic bonds of their own. Velvien presents his vision of Blazblue's storyline conclusion as many characters band together to defeat the NOL, Terumi and Relius in particular. It also features characters whom were not present in "On Strange Wings" (Carl, for example) gaining prominent roles, while four OC's have been added for both sides of the conflict: Gesshoku Yayoi (Tsubaki's father), Belioz Mutsuki (Member of the Duodecim), Tenshin (Lord Tenjo's son), and the mysterious Voivod. The author has noted that the fanfic will be "epic in length".
Comments: So far, it's got much of the same charm and sharp writing as "On Strange Wings" has. However, it's much larger in scale, and a bit slower-paced so as to accomodate the larger cast size and expanded POV. While many may be put off by the notion of O Cs, Velvien has noted that he does not plan for any of the four that he created to be too powerful or overshadowing the canon characters in plot importance. They're mainly present to serve the purposes of the story, and are more well-designed than most O Cs. Overall, a solid story so far.
Now has a forum called The Cauldron where Velvian plans to have a play by post RP inside the universe of At Fates Hands. No OC's to create yet, and the rest of the cast needs to be filled out, but it will soon be ready! http://w11.zetaboards.com/The_Cauldron/index/
The author has several other fics that may warrant your attention; most with Tsubaki as lead, with Ragna often as the other lead; the shipping between the two varies depending on the story, from Official Couple here, through Just Friends (complete with Ship Sinking) to Enemy Mine.
Synopsis: A crossover of BlazBlue and Soul Nomad & the World Eaters. An Original Character named Dark has to deal with a bunch of supernatural elements in his life like ghosts and demons. After a girl from space randomly crashes into his house, she decides to help him out in any way she can to make up for it. She eventually drags Ragna and Revya to join the ride to help him with his life.
Comments: The two Copyrighted Characters aren’t introduced until about Chapter 7 or so, but the writing is well enough for some to look past that. We aren’t told from what point in time Ragna or Revya are taken from their continuity, but there doesn’t seem to be any major out-of-character moments from the two. The writing is captivating, but it’s an in progress fic. However, it seems to have potential and I definitely recommend it to be read during one’s spare time.
Synopsis: A trip through a Cauldron with Nu-13 leaves Ragna alone in a strange land, with a new "destiny" as the Messenger of Heaven. Amidst the forces of Sousou, Sonken, and Enshou, Ragna must strive to adjust to this new world and to the presence of people who trust him to guide them to peace and victory.
Comments: Although it replaces Kazuto with Ragna, it's a fun and interesting read. The plot mostly follows the first Visual Novel's story but incorporates other characters and some scenarios from the anime and the Shin Koihime Musou VN.
Synopsis: A crossover of BlazBlue and Tales of Vesperia. The fic takes place after the ending of Vesperia, and around the ending of BlazBlue: Calamity Trigger. Several Blazblue characters, namely Jin Kisaragi, Carl Clover, Hakumen, Arakune, and recently Noel Vermillion end up in the Vesperia world due to time shifts. As the author said, the time shifts are partially an excuse to cross over the two fandoms. Characters from both sides team up to fight a potentially world-destroying threat, and the Smooth Criminal behind it. Plenty of ship teasing is included, as well.
Comments: All of the characters are very in-character. There's a good amount of character development in the fic, particularly on the Blazblue end of the spectrum. The action is also pretty well-detailed. Considering this is a fic crossing over an Action RPG and a 2D Fighting Game, this is a very good thing. The first 33 chapters were all part of "Part 1", with "Part 2" starting after the interlude at Chapter 34. This is going to be a very long series. However, if your favorite character in Blazblue happens to be the idealistic Highly-Visible Ninja Bang Shishigami, I must warn you: the author is not a fan of him. Don't worry though. Every Blazblue character has had at least one appearance so far, as well as every major character from Vesperia.
...and if your favorite character is series protagonist Ragna, his personality is basically gone (but with good reason) - he only appears as part of the Black Beast and gets the entirety of one line as himself per se.
The author has also written another Blazblue fanfic involving, and I quote, "a dead Jin in Yukianesa wielded Soul Reaver style by Sodia". He has written stories for Guilty Gear, Soul Calibur, Fate/stay night, and many other series.
Synopsis: Lifted straight from FF. Net; "After a chance meeting at a restaurant, Tsubaki finds herself following the NOL's greatest enemy to meet a childhood hero." Goes on to include many characters of the BlazBlue roster with mention, or cameos, of numerous other characters.
Comments: This troper is an enormous fan of BlazBlue, he isn't going to lie. So, like many fans, he went out to try and find a decent fic, or a great fic. This troper was disappointed to discover that the number of BlazBlue fanfictions is... not very high. So, when this troper, on a mission to find a fic, ran across this one out of the mire, he was interested, if only because the ship of the fanfiction was... Interesting. Then he read the fic. The first thing that caught him was that the characters' dialogue was perfectly in sync with the characters as they appeared in the actual games (English Dub, at least). He was also pleasantly surprised to find out that they were in-canon, as well, with the characters avoiding being derailed. While the premise may seem odd, please remember that this is BlazBluewe're talking about here, so, frankly? It works.
