One of the more skilled authors in the KND fanfic community. A talented, good-humored writer who obviously has a lot of love for the series. Most of her fics center around Numbuh 362, although she is capable of working with a variety of characters and genres.
Mostly writes one-shots or short stories. Her writing style is solid and the way she spins the characters is intriguing, while still being believable. Her wide variety of stories are all well written, fresh and definitely worth a look.
Seconded by spaceage. She puts the characters in situations such as high school, real life, etc. and instead of making it annoying and completely OOC, she blends it into them to the point that it's flawless.
A very talented writer with a vast collection of well-done KND fanfics. He can write any genre from angst to humor, and keeps the cast in-character while bringing the reader closer to them. Is a prime example of an author who has a lot of respect for the series, but still is able to work his own material in.
This guy is just...amazing. People wonder why this guy wasn't writing for the tv show itself.
He masters both the moving and the hilarious with equal ease.
A strongly talented writer that is able to balance the KND canon with her own ideas and concepts, her fanfics carry senarios and plotlines that haven't been approached in the canon stroyline but remains true to what is liked about the KND francise, the stories in the fanfics are accurate enough with the KND canon and greatly accurate with the characterization of the show's original cast, that Mr. Warburton could do episodes entirely on them and randomly air them with very few people taking notice. And though she has very few fan characters, her main fan character, Numbuh 30 is likable and believable enough that he alone would fit the KND storyline really well.
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.Operation: There Is No Operation by Karkadinn

Synopsis: Set a couple of months after the scavenger hunt in "Operation INTERVIEWS". Numbuh 362, the Supreme Leader of the KND, finds out that Numbuh One has joined the Galactic Kids Next Door and embarks on a top secret mission to get him back - ONLY for the good of the KND, of course, NOTHING personal. But Father discovers what she is up to, and he has plans of his own ...
Comments: This story mixes humor, action and seriousness in a way that captures the tone from the original show perfectly. The story is mainly told from Numbuh 362's perspective and we learn a lot about the dark sides of being the Supreme Leader of the Kids Next Door. The characters are complex, the addition of new characters and locations is well done and feels natural, the awkward pre-teen romance between 362 and One is handled in a realistic and moving way without getting in the way of the plot (this is not a slashfic) and Father gets to demonstrate some awesome magnificent bastardry.
Double-recommended by Shumazau. The psychology behind the story is amazing; you find yourself agreeing with everything that comes up, especially the fragile co-existence between children and adults. It's one of those things that you have to accept as canon, because it really seems like it.
Synopsis: Three years after being decommissioned, the 16-years-old former members of the legendary Sector V live their separate lives at Willem High School, each struggling with his or her own teenage problems. On top of that they are all haunted by mysterious dreams about their forgotten past and the odd sensation that they used to be friends. Meanwhile, sinister forces are putting a plan in motion that might end up threatening the world ...
Comments: An ongoing fan fiction with Loads and Loads of Characters (seemingly everyone from the series) that manage to move into realistic Darker and Edgier territory while remaining true to both the characters and the KND-verse.
Seconding this. It is real amazing, although a bit slow moving. It does merit an AU tag because it ignores INTERVIEW. Still, amazing piece of work, and Numbah702 has the plot planned out.
Third. It might be slow, but the development of the story and the characters is excellent. I particulary enjoy the changing points of view of the characters involved
Fourthed. There's a bit of Gratuitous Japanese in one scene with Kuki's family, but it's pretty cute and not intrusive.
Fifthed. Best post-series decommissioned AU I've ever read.
Synopsis: Stuck at Moonbase doing paperwork on Christmas Eve, Rachel wishes that she had never taken the job as Soopreme Leader and stayed an ordinary operative. Her guardian angel appears and grants her wish by altering the timeline. But something is missing ...
Comments: A great It's a Wonderful Life inspired fan fic. As the author says: Instead of complaining that the rosebush is full of thorns, be happy that the thorn bush has roses.
Third...ed by spaceage. The previous statements don't even come close to how amazing this guy is.
Fourth. What's even better is he didn't go with the traditional It's a Wonderful Life route for numbuh 362, but rather turn it into a reflection on what's important in one's life as compared to how someone has helped others.
Synopsis: When a rouge operative threatens to reveal the GKND, Nigel is sent back down to stop them by any means necessary. But people have changed and the boy is tangled in a web of love and betrayal as he finds out just who he has been assigned to hunt down.
Comments: One of the best fanfics on the archive. The entire thing is written and crafted in a way that it's hard to believe that this wasn't an episode for the TV show it's self. With long chapters, and a excellent plot line, the story blends, meshes and throws a dozen different plot twists that you'd never see coming, before you even get to the third chapter. It's original in an unoriginal sort of way, and it's just proof that this show is deeper than it seems. And just wait until Numbuh 362 shows up. Bonus points if you can figure out where the story name comes from.
Synopsis: When Evil Exes attack, the lines separating love and war get crossed. Loosely inspired by Scott Pilgrim, will be a bit dark at times. Couples galore.
Comments: Don't let the title fool ya. It's one of the best this troper's read. This fic was based off Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, but it's done in a way that proves perfect for the characters. The author blends the characters with their Scott Pilgrim counterparts and manages to not even change their personalities into OOC-Land, keeping a completely canon outlook (so far, that is. We're still wondering how the plot will go. Canon or otherwise,). For a first fiction, it's shaping up to be one of the better stories on the archive, and the editing is superb. Defiantly worth the read.
Synopsis: Mysterious deaths have been popping up around UCLA's campus, and to make things stranger, the KND are enlisting Rachel's help in solving the mystery. As if life couldn't get any stranger, throw in the GKND and see what happens. First chapter; rewritten.
Comments: This story centers around Rachel Mc Kenzie a.k.a. Numbuh 362, and takes place eight years after the TV series. It is a clever, Ace Attorney-type fanfiction that deals with both the mystery of Rachel's past and the mystery of deaths appearing around. I highly recommend this because of the well-written and detailed style, and the fact that the author puts humorous little tidbits here and there.
Synopsis: "...And that was the last time we saw Numbuh 1. We all missed him so much... but I think Wally took it the hardest." The last days of Sector V, and the struggle of each member, as told by an heir of their legacy..
Comments: This Fanfiction is just Awesome. It's a continuation fic with some out there moments, but it takes the universe seriously, and makes as many nods to previous events as possible. However what really sets it apart is that it tries to marry the KND ideals of being a kid with the inevitability of growing up, and how each one of the remaining members of sector V deals with that. Has extremely powerful conclusions for each of the characters, as well as out of episode meditations on their actions in show, with everything from the burden of leadership to survivor's guilt played with. By far, my favorite development has to be Numbuh 4's development, who goes though the most Character Development, and who in the end makes a Heroic Sacrifice to save the Kids Next Door. A must read for everyone who's ever wanted to balance both being a kid, and growing up.
Seconded by Numbuh9494. This fic, along with its various prequels and tie-in fics, are spectacular reads. The continuation flows perfectly along with where the show left off and the characters are well-written. The ending is satisfying and leaves a good, fuzzy feeling inside your chest, and, as stated by the troper above, each character really does get a powerful conclusion. Once you start reading, you can't put it down, and after you're done you'll want to read it over and over again (which I have, multiple times, over the past two or three years).
While I do like this fic, it does have some errors. The thing that startled me the most was 362's apparent drop off from the world. It seemed as if the author was just...'killing' her off so that Numbuh 5 could get to the position of Supreme Leader. And I was feeling the same thing with Numbuh 363.
Actually, if you read carefully, it is hinted at what happened to 362, and if you have read the lead up fics to this, it is actually very sweet.
Thirded by KariGray. This fic is the ultimate KND fanfic. It brings back Sector V only BETTER. Deeper. The way they think and act makes sense. And not the oh-I-see-how-that-works kind but the HOW-did-I-not-SEE-that sense. The writer has a superb understanding of each character and their Hidden Depths. I love how Numbuh 1 is never there in being but always THERE at the back of their heads when they need him most. The writing is superb. And there is many a Crowning Moment of Awesome and Crowning Moment of Heartwarming. Plus, it has a Happy Ending, which I'm always a sucker for.
Synopsis: Just when Father thinks his life can't get any worse it does; when he finds out he has an biological child that he's now stuck with! But the bigger question is how is Sector V going to handle either having a new friend or enemy?
Comments: Crystal does an amazing job with this story! The OC's are interesting, Father stays in character, there's a few twists along the way and... Sector Z comes back!!!
Synopsis: -"What about Numbuh 1? We can't tell him."- When 5 kids claiming to be from the future fall into Sector V's care, things start to get a little... weird. What secret are they hiding? Contains 3/4, 2/5, 1/362, and 83/84.
Synopsis: Kuki is killed during an attempt to fend off an alien invasion of giant killer robots. The members of sector V are crushed and Wally realizes too late how much he loved her. But suddenly their love gets a second chance ...
Comments: The synopsis makes this very well-drawn fan comic sound like a major Tear Jerker, and it is. It is also quirky, moving and hilarious, frequently at the same time, and oddly realistic in the way it treats the relationship between Wally and Kuki. Sadly this is a DeadFic as it ends mid-action and has not been updated since 2006, but before the end we are treated to some unforgettable images, such as a sad Hoagie painting over the number "3" on the treehouse wall and Wally sitting forlorn on the balcony clutcing a red Rainbow Monkey Doll:
Pairings: Nigel and Rachel and/or Nigel and Lizzie
Synopsis: When Lizzie discovers Nigel needs a stronger woman by his side, she does everything in her power to improve herself. Unknown to her, someone else also has a similar idea.
Comments: This is a different kind of shipping fanfic, it basically scales between Nigel dealing with Lizzies and Rachel, who are both competing for Nigel's affection without him knowing, it looks into the nature of Nigel being with either one of those girls without being too in-your-face about them. And as Rachel and Lizzie's competition somewhat goes further and further as the story goes on, making it likely you'd read further into the story just to see how it turns out in the end.
Synopsis: Kuki's life is full of loneliness and misery. She has lost all confidence, and has grown shy, scared, and incredibly sad. All she wants is happiness. And Wallabee Beetles will be the person to give it to her.
Synopsis: Out of the blue, Numbuh 86 surprises Numbuh 362 with a Valentine's days gift.
Comments: Truly a picture that says more than a thousand words. The artist has captured the feelings of the moment you tell someone that you love them for the first time and are trembling for the response perfectly. Femslash, but feelings are independet of gender.
Synopsis: Fanny and Rachel, now in the Teenagers Next Door, gradually realize that their feelings for each other are more than friendly. This does not sit well with some people.
Comments: Touching romance, kick-ass action and humour, this fic has it all. Note that it gets quite dark and mature in some places.
Seconded for being such an astounding surprise. It definitely has the above mentioned aspects, and the darker aspects are handled real nicely, as well as the interactions between characters and some of the modifications for those that went from kid to teenager. It's also evident the writer knows the KND series by heart, with a lot of references abound.
