Fanfic Recs: Cardcaptor Sakura
Proof that the remaining 10% is worth being turned into a Sakura card for here.

These are recommendations made by Tropers for Card Captor Sakura fanfics, all of which have to be signed to stay on the page. Feel free to add a fanfic of your own to the list, but remember to use the template found here.

You can also add to the current recommendations if you want. Refrain from posting Conversation in the Main Page though; that goes in the discussion page. No-name recommendations will be zapped. Nobody would back up the rec. Discussion of the recommendation is welcome on the discussion page. As such discussion is important, do remember to add the discussion page to the watchlist, if need be.

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.

Status guide:

  • Complete: Exactly What It Says on the Tin.
  • Ongoing: The fic is being updated on a regular basisnote , or has received an update after a significant absence.
  • Dormant: The fic has not been updated in a fairly long time (several months to a year or more) but the author has not pronounced it dead.
  • Dead: The fic has not been updated in several years, or the author has specifically said that it will not be updated.

Note: Fics listed as Dormant or Dead will be changed to Ongoing if/when they receive updates. If you see a rec with a blank status, and you're familiar with the fanfic, please add the correct status.

Rosabell
  • Recommended by Wnan Quant
  • 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.

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 New Trials of Cardcaptor Sakura, Syaoran and Friends by Wishluv
  • Recommended by Tamer, Nadrixam, selenityshiroi
  • 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.

  • Through Another Day, by ButterflyIllusioned
    • Recommended by Comartemis
    • Status: Dead link.
    • 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".

  • Crossovers or Fusion Fics
    A merging or crossing of two different series, not enough to justify 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.

    Harry Potter and the Return of the True Sorcerers by Magicalfoci (Dead Link. If anyone knows where else it exists?)
    • Recommended by Mizuuma, Nadrixam
    • Status:
    • 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.

  • Wildflower by Peacewish
    • Recommended by Outsider

    • Synopsis: On the run and desperate to get offplanet, Li hitched a ride on a scrappy old cargo ship. But this ship has its secrets too. Will he ever solve the puzzle that is Sakura? Firefly fusion.

  • Shard Card By Knight of L-sama
    • Recommended by Karsten69
    • Status: Complete
    • 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.

    Sakura and the Scottish School of Magic and its sequel: Sakura and the Whirlwind of Discovery By Shareon
    • Recommended by: Maymei
    • 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 Harry Potter canon without contradicting it.

    lift me like an olive branch (i'll be your homeward dove) by purplevanity / high improbability
    • Recommended by Synchronicity, Somariel
    • Status: Complete
    • Pairings: Syaoran/Sakura, Nokoru/Suoh, Suoh/Nagisa
    • Synopsis: Nokoru/Tomoyo Arranged Marriage AU. Crossover with CLAMP School Detectives.
    • 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.
