Authors, and Websites
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.
"Castlevania: All His Engines
" by Legend Maker
- Recommended by Gamerex27, seconded by Yuihime, thirded by Kazeto
- Synopsis: "For centuries, Dracula has warred upon humanity. For centuries, Dracula has been certain in their inferiority. For centuries, Dracula has never been proven wrong. Dracula is about to get a different answer to his question of what a man is..."
- Comments: This is an amazing oneshot, with some of the most incredible characterization that this troper has ever seen. It really delves into the mind of Dracula, and the OCs are all believable and realistic by Castlevania's standards.
- Kazeto: While the story is not what I had been hoping for when I had stumbled upon this fiction (and at that time I was looking for heavily psychological and/or philosophical fictions, with this fiction not being heavy), it is still a very pleasant read. I recommend wholeheartedly to every person familiar with Castlevania lore.
"Harmony in Despair
" by Renuarb
Stories focused on the romantic relationships between the cast.
- Recommended by Fofa
- Synopsis: "Jonathan finds himself in the world of the cursed Grimoire. Can he survive the trials within and return home? Not with his new company..."
- Comments: As a fic based on Castlevania Harmony Of Despair, it's actually pretty good. The characters are fun and interesting (and considering I think that the original Soma Cruz's personality is akin to a clump of dirt, that's saying something), the action is good and while it adds material that wasn't in the original game, it's interesting material that actually contributes to the plot. The only criticism I have for it is the slow update schedule.

My Little Castlevania
Lyrics of Sorrow
- Crosses Over With: My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic
- Recommended by bifferboffer
- Synopsis: Canterlot Castle has vanished overnight, and a strange new castle has taken its place. Upon investigating, Twilight Sparkle finds that a new evil has been unleashed upon Equestria. Does she and her companions stand a chance against the evil of Count Dracula?
- Comments: Instead of going for action, the author instead heads into a straight-up horror story. While there is plenty of action, there is much more in the way of scares.
