Do warn when a fanfic may head into non-canon territory. Some people just don't like it, and as we all know, Shipping is Serious Business.
Synopsis: This authoress has a beautiful writing style and has a real talent for keeping the characters in character as well as giving them believable and realistic development. The romance is never shoved in the reader's face and is not the only focus of the stories. The settings and premises are well thought out and stretch across multiple genres. There is a wide spectrum of length, ranging from one-shots to multi-chapters to a trilogy. By far, the best alternate universe Cardcaptor Sakura writer I discovered to date, and my synopsis cannot hope to do her works justice.
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.Through Another Day, by ButterflyIllusioned
Synopsis: Sakura is one of the nicest girls you would ever meet, so it's almost unfair that she becomes cursed by an ancient book. She's forced to track down and capture ancient spirits before they cause terrible destruction. She uses the spirits she's captured to capture the others... There's only one problem with that. Every time she uses a spirit, some of her life is taken away. No one knows, not even her best friend Tomoyo, who believes this is all fun and games. When Syaoran Li shows up to investigate the strange powers, he finds Sakura. After he starts to notice a change in her magical strength as well as her own appearance, she confides in him the awful truth of the curse. Even if she captures all the cards, it will probably kill her in the end. As Sakura struggles, Syaoran's feelings make him carry the biggest burden of all. He can only watch as he falls in love with a person marked for death. As Sakura continues to lie to everyone she loves, the only person she can turn to is a stranger. One who can painfully do nothing but tell her she'll "make it through another day".
Synopsis: The Kaos Cards, eight sinister relics from Clow Reed's mysterious past, have reappeared in Tomoeda. Now it falls to a new generation of Card Captors to defeat a force beyond even Clow Reed's power.
Status: Ongoing. Updates are very spaced out (with updates currently around once or twice a year) but have been steady for several years-and the author is very dedicated to its completion.
Synopsis: Shamelessly copied from Fanfiction.net: two years after CCS, this fanfic started in Fall 1999, continues the adventures of the gang against Dark Ones. As S&S seal new forces, they learn secrets about of their parents' past and strive to understand the future.
Synopsis: Seventeen centuries after the birth of Christ, eight decades after Robert Devereux was beheaded, three hundred years since the birth of Marco Polo, sixteen years after the great plague of London, four months before the year of the rooster was declared in China... an unspeakably clever Chinese-British wizard who hasn't quite mastered 'ineffably wise', journeys to the ramshackle manor inherited from a father he has never known and takes advantage of peculiar astrological conditions to call down the sun and moon. Hilarity ensues.
Status: Dormant. Updated twice in mid-2012 after a multi-year hiatus.
Synopsis: A continuation of the series after the anime. Sakura faces deadly attacks from an unknown source, with Syaoran and Meiling returning to lend her a hand. Despite the battles, the greatest threat to love may be themselves.

Synopsis: Syaoran is the ghost of a young boy who haunts the Kinomoto family's new home. When Syaoran discovers that Sakura is in for a terrible fate, he agrees to a sacrifice to protect her. But he doesn't realize what he's really given up...
Synopsis: Takes place after the end of CCS, There's something that's preventing Sakura and Tomoyo from talking to each other, to find out why Sakura, Syaoran and Eriol go to England, Harry Potter crossover
Synopsis: Can Sakura and Tomoyo survive the rough and tumble lesbian network that is the Mahou Shoujo Lyrical Nanoha world? Massive extraneous shipping especially NanoFate and Sigmal , plus a crossover one-sided TomoHayate. Humor, Romance, Subtlety, and a few crack scenes.
Synopsis: After running into problems developing her magical skills on her own, Sakura decides to attend Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry for some formal magical studies.
Comments: Both stories take a quite different route from the usual “Sakura come to Hogwarts to protect Harry and save the day”. There is no super Sakura, just a girl who has great power but lacks the experience to use it properly; instead, we have Sakura’s progress in study, making friends and her interactions with the differences between Western and Eastern magic.
