Summary: School life before mutual killing. (Set pre-series, major spoilers.)
Comments: If you're not feeling depressed yet about the fact a class of close friends had their memories wiped before being forced to kill each other in pursuit of a futile goal, then this Happy Flashback fic will sort that out.
Summary: A few moments that, in another life, might have led to friendship. The countdown to the end of the world has begun.
Comments: A fascinating speculative look at the pre-series relationships of a character who doesn't get much time to shine in the game itself. Really in-character, really melancholy, really despair-inducing.
Summary: Mondo Oowada gives a practical lesson on the differences between 'I killed', 'I ended up killing', and 'I tried to kill but failed miserably'. It is, unsurprisingly, a rather unpleasant experience for everyone involved.
Comments: Quite in-character, and all in all an interesting view into Togami's head.
Summary: Sadako Maeda thought that she was the luckiest girl in Japan when she won a lottery that admitted her to Hope's Peak Academy - 4 times! Her classmates are among the most famous and talented youth in Japan, and Sadako can barely contain her excitement. But when they wake up in a boarded up school run by a sadistic teddybear, they are given two options: stay forever, or murder each other for a chance to escape! Who will break under the pressure first?
Summary: The Most Despair-Inducing Incident in the History of Mankind...it only makes sense that such a catastrophic event would spread to the other side of the world. While Naegi and company fought their battles, a new story unfolded at St. Fortuna's University for the Naturally Gifted. A story filled with pain, grief, and a very fleeting amount of hope. This is that story.
An Elsewhere Fic (Original Characters and Original Setting...except Monobear) that takes place in the US, so far there are 13 chapters, has some art posted in the author's DA account, and except for some Mythology Gags contains little to no spoilers of the series.

Pairing: Enoshima Junko/Ikusaba Mukuro
Summary: What happens when SHSL Zetsubou's oldest and dearest member defects from the cause?
Basically, in an AU where Junko and Mukuro aren't killed by the remaining students at Hope's Peak Academy, Ultimate Despair runs the world. Mukuro, tired of her twin sister, has an argument with her and runaways. As the Ultimate Soldier, you wouldn't expect her to fall into the trap set by Naegi's clique. And you wouldn't expect that she'd be so willing to rid the despair off Junko's head and have her sister normal again.
Jesus Christ, please read this, it's awesome. Also, features the crew of Super Danganronpa 2, since most of its cast were Ultimate Despair too. It has a battle between Ikusaba and Pekoyama, do I need to say more?
