* Recommended by WnanQuant
* ''Pairing(s)'': Syaoran/Sakura, Touya/Yukito
* ''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.

[[folder: General Fics]]
''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.''

''[[FanFic/TheNewTrialsOfCardCaptorSakura The New Trials of Cardcaptor Sakura, Syaoran and Friends]]'' by [[ Wishluv]]
* Recommended by Tamer, @/{{Nadrixam}}, selenityshiroi, Loekman3
* ''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 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.

''FanFic/ShadowOfTheDragon'' by Lord Archive
* Recommended by @/{{Stratagemini}}
* ''Status'': Ongoing but update times are very sparse.
* ''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.

''[[ Through Another Day]]'', by [=ButterflyIllusioned=]
* Recommended by @/{{Comartemis}}
* ''Status'': Complete
* ''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".

''[[ Four Months Before the Golden Rooster]]'' by 0o Mooncalf o0

[[folder:Crossovers or Fusion Fics]]
''A merging or crossing of two different series, not enough to justify [[MegaCrossover Mega Crossovers]] but still a crossover. A fusion fic is where one is set in the universe of the other, but does not necessarily feature characters from both.''

''[[ Sakura and the Scottish School of Magic]]'' and its sequel: ''[[ Sakura and the Whirlwind of Discovery]]'' By ''[[ Shareon]]''
* Recommended by: Maymei, Dame-Amaryllis
* Status: First fic completed, Sequel completed
* 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.
** Another thing; One thing that sets this apart from other crossovers is that while these storied take place during the first two books, it can easily blend into ''HarryPotter'' canon without contradicting it.

* ''Status'': Complete
* ''Pairings'': Syaoran/Sakura, Nokoru/Suoh, Suoh/Nagisa
* ''Synopsis'': Nokoru/Tomoyo ArrangedMarriage AU. Crossover with ''Manga/CLAMPSchoolDetectives''.
* ''Comments'': Not the wacky CLAMP fusion fic I was expecting; it's actually quite sad and really well-written. It's also a great Tomoyo character study and a nice interpretation of Nokoru's personality.

* Synopsis: ''"Love is a powerful motivation." He said, his warm eyes focusing back on her awed ones. "It makes you risk it all and think it's all worth it."''
