Summary: A fanfiction dot net compilation of work from the writers of Xana's Lair, a long-standing forum with an emphasis on fanfiction prompts (amongst other things). This page features a variety of work from various talented writers; everything from shipping to genfic to drabble collections.
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.Code: Lyoko - A Retelling by G-Force (AU)
Synopsis: They say to defeat your enemy, you must become your enemy... but for unfortunately for Jeremie and a certain Krabe, that saying is about to be taken far too literally...
Comments: Sithking Zero: One of my favorite CL stories, and one that puts a unique spin on the whole series. Jeremie and a Krabe switch bodies due to a screw-up in a training scenario. Watching the two try to prevent their counterparts from finding out that they are in the body of mortal enemies is nothing short of hilarious, and it shows that monsters are not merely dumb beasts to be ordered around like slaves. Two thumbs up! Oh, and rendered AU by Season 3.
Synopsis: A somewhat dark fic; Sissi and Mr. Delmas are refugees in an Irish boarding school after a mysterious cataclysm hits Bolougne-Billancourt. Mystery, drama, and adventure ensue.
Comments: Hands down the best fanfic I've ever read. The writing is good enough to be in a novel, the characterization is spot-on, and the OC's are actually very fleshed-out and likeable. The aura of mystery and tragedy is killer, and the light moments are great. Read it now.
Synopsis: XANA is gone, but science moves forward, slowly discovering quantum technology. The Lyoko Warriors alone know the danger it holds for the entire planet. Without RTTP, they fight a shadow war against AIs and humans to save the world from its creations.
Comments: Extremely well-written, just like an episode of the show, and the amount of planning that's gone into it is very impressive. Starke's theories about the science behind the supercomputer and Lyoko are really interesting, and he makes good use of minor characters, fleshing them out and giving them interesting roles. The fic has, sadly, since been discontinued, but what there is is very much worth reading.
Synopsis: Team LYOKO plus one. A retelling of the story with the addition of an OC and some extra story arcs, such as ones concerning Yumi and Ulrich's relationship and an expansion of the Project CARTHAGE backstory.
Comments: A fun writing style which takes inspiration from Scott Pilgrim, and litters the story with pop culture references. May not be to everyone's taste if you're not a fan of the "OC is a new student who also knows about Lyoko" trope, but the writing is good and the humour and new material is pretty stellar.

Synopsis: Sometimes love is a little less on the legal side of the law...
Comments: Funny, awesome crack. Basically portrays Jeremy and Aelita as a pair of crazy-prepared Yanderes. For example, their marrige proposition was done using kidnapping and blackmail ON EACH OTHER. Only problem is that it's just a oneshot.
Synopsis: Oneshot, Oddx Sissi. Sissi finds Odd utterly annoying... she refuses to consider it anything else... usually, anyway. 'I will not blush, I will NOT blush,' I thought furiously. 'I thought it was impossible, but you've gone and made me hate you more.'
Comments: While not one of the more well-known or supported pairings, like Ulrich/Yumi or Jeremie/Aelita, I have always liked this particular couple. Just a fun, fluffy story of Odd driving Sissi bonkers.
Odd/Sissi, with background Ulrich/Yumi and Jeremie/Aelita.

Synopsis: When Odd goes looking for another girl to date, he gets more than he bargained for. This may not be a bad thing, though. Ox S for the curious and some other minor ones.
Comments: Another Odd/Sissi story. Odd gets a new computer, and he starts chatting with a girl online. After really hitting it off, they decide to meet for the first time (though they do note in-story that this takes place after Odd did the exact same thing with the same results.) After a comedy of errors, even more HilarityEnsues. It's funny, it's fluffy, it's altogether great.
Synopsis: The Story takes place after Episode 52: The Key. Season 3 of the real Code Lyoko didn't come out until like the author got up Episode 100+ so none of this is based on the real Season 3. It also has a spin off... Code XANA (Takes place in the future with the kids, if you read the first one you'll understand.)
