The Bolt stories of PenNameSmith
  • Recommended by Macgyver644200
  • Symphosis: A series of stories set after the conclusion of the movie, giving a brief overview of what happens next.
  • Pairings: BoltXMittens
  • The author touches on a variety of topics that the movie didn't fully resolve (Bolt adjusting to normal life, what happens to the show, etc) and does it very well, with a bunch of original ideas thrown in as well. The characters stick to their canon personalities and the author's very good at keeping the story interesting all throughout. Humor, action, and heartwarming moments galore, I was never bored with the stories and was sad to see that the author had stopped writing Bolt fanfics. Give it a whirl.

  • Recomended by Alyssa Macki
  • He writes some of the best, not just Disney but stories Period, His best are "Rapunzel Goes Home" and "Roused". He resolves problems the characters have at the ends of their stories that most people brush off. It lets me look into the facts he brings up and discover them for myself. And I can not forget "Merida Comes". It really brings in how characters, even if they're not real, can influence us immensely. An author who can do that deserves much more, but this is the best I can do.

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 Great Disney Adventure Saga by talking2myself
  • Recommended by CMR Rosa and Eric W
  • Synopsis: When Kelsey and her six year old cousin Emma gets sucked into the tv, it was only the beginning of their great Disney adventure. Even after they got out, a year later they went back in, and the stakes would only get bigger.
  • Comments: This is a awesome crossover, everyone was in character and the original characters are well written. It's also not afraid to get meta or self referencing in the story, as while Kelsey and her family might know some of the stories, Jack Sparrow at least knows they're in a disney world, and can reference that quite often. While it can drag in places where the Myth Arc is sidetracked by the smaller Story Arc around it, but overall it's an engaging read.
  • This is actually a series of 3 fics.
  • Status: Books 1&2 complete. Book 3 in progress.

    Character Chronicles By zeldahearts1337
    • Recommended by Zelda Hearts 1337.
    • Synopsis: Years ago... There were so many wonderful Characters that walked among us. But one day, a Character ended up killing a human child. They didn't mean it. Honest. Beloved heroes suddenly were monsters; threats that needed to be stopped. Soon, Characters were fugitives. That's when some people began began S.A.F.E. But it might not last much longer. (in-progress- currently dead)
    • Comments: A Darker and Edgier Disney fic, kinda like Who Framed Roger Rabbit? in some aspects, Epic Mickey in a few others. Throw in dozens of characters from Disney, a handful from various video games, a pinch of Anime,some more from Western Animation, and toss them into a fugitive-hiding, underground railroad of sorts and this is it. Give it a whirl, and you might actually like it.

  • Roused by bStormhands
    • Recommended by Alyssa Macki
    • Synopsis: Aurora was living in a lie, kept in a small forest, loving people who were not her parents. Sounds a lot like Rapunzel's story, yes? Aurora's return didn't go as smoothly as Rapunzel's, but Rapunzel can help. The story of some princesses lying in bed, whining about how awful their lives are. OR. What it takes to fix a broken a princess. The redemption of the Princess Aurora and Princess Rapunzel and their families. Not your grandmother's princess story!

  • Crowns of the Kingdom by Karalora
    • Recommended by: Lalalei2001
    • Synposis: When a vengeful villain attempts to turn Disneyland's 50th Anniversary from the Disney Family's greatest triumph to their greatest defeat, it's up to Mickey Mouse to set things right and save his many friends from a fate worse than death!
    • Comments: This fic is amazing, especially if you're a Disney fan. 70 plus years of Disney's history are woven into the fic, from parks and attractions to characters. Mickey Mouse being the main hero is really neat, and it was written before Epic Mickey came out. It's an emotional read, especially at the very end. Mickey really has to earn his happy ending, but he does, and it's amazing.

    Toonz: The Gift of Christmas
    • Recommended by Mondegreen
    • Sypnosis: The first Christmas Ashton Bunny spends in L.A. promises to be one he won't soon forget: Mickey Mouse, the star of the Disney Studios and a long-time friend of Ashton's father, Bugs Bunny, wants to try another collaboration between their teams. But the last attempt proved to be disastrous, and after learning of the intense rivalry between the Looney Tunes and the Disney Core, Ashton is worried his father's plans will fall through. When things do take a turn for the worst, Bugs and Mickey are faced with the dilemma of finding an alternative to their idea. It's not an easy task, especially when their own Studios are refusing to help them fund their project any longer. The two families have to come up with a solution before the deadline. But how can Bugs Bunny and Mickey Mouse have their teams cooperate, when they've refused to do so for decades? While they try to find a solution to their problem, Ashton learns the secret history behind the friendship between Animation's two iconic Toons, and what makes it so special. Now all that's left to do is for Bugs and Mickey to find their Christmas Miracle.
    • Comments: Though the writing may vary somewhat and there are some heavy bits of exposition, this is still the only fanfiction I've read that not only puts Mickey Mouse and Bugs Bunny in a story together, but shows a very dynamic (and heartwarming) relationship between the two characters. The story has a boatload of references to the history of Disney and Warner Brothers animation, and it's a very detailed take on how these Toons could operate if they were actually drawn-up actors in real life. It's imperfect, but it's still a great tribute to classic Disney and Looney Tunes cartoons, and a wonderful depiction of how their characters would've interacted.

    Stories focused on the romantic relationships between the cast.
