Synopsis: Kuroyagi mostly writes Fairy Tail shipping fics; the main pairing being Natsu and Erza. Recently he has gotten into crossovers with Bleach. He's a great author and comes up with dozens of original ideas that are written so well that it's not hard to see any of these stories happening in canon. All of his works are worth the read.
Synopsis: When Zeref kills all of Natsu's friends for failing to kill him, he gets sent back in time to X782 to try and get strong enough to change things. Will Natsu be able to protect his friends? What exactly is their connection? And what dark secrets are there that will affect not only Natsu, but the world as a whole?
Comments: This author manages to handle the characters well and writes in a way that can be serious and humorous whenever necessary. It's definitely one of the best Fairy Tail fics with this basic plot and might be one of the best reads in the category.
Comments: It's basically a series of sucker punches, Adult Fear, and Time Travel. With the way the author manages to write "in the moment," sometimes the full senario can take a bit to become clear. Which makes it all the more heart-wrenching. Poor boys...

Pairing: Loke/Lucy. Unrequited Gray/Lucy and Natsu/Lucy
Synopsis: Lucy ends up pregnant with Loke's child, the second known half-spirit in existence. She struggles to deal with the unusual rate at which her child grows while Loke faces repercussions in the Spirit World, who fear that the baby may turn out like the only other known half-breed, an infamous criminal mage. To make matters worse, amidst the two's troubles, a rogue spirit and an ancient woman are trying to capture the child and use it for unknown sinister ends.
Comments: Totally better than it sounds. Some of the plot twists and reveals, such as the previous half-spirit, are a little obvious, while others are alluded to just enough that you can tell the story was well thought out. Lucy can get a little whiny at times, but never so much so that it's out of character or at a time when it's uncalled for.
Review: Weighing in at a hefty 100k+ words, this story manages to squeeze every emotion out of its readers. Although some parts are Not Safe for Work, the majority of the story is packed full of drama, action, emotion, and hilarity. It can also be educational, as some reviewers have said that the astronomy lessons found in extensive footnotes have helped them in school!
Tags: Hits you with a Lemon right from the start, but after that it settles down until a couple more scattered lemons later in the story, Rated M chapters have warnings.
Pairing: Bixlow/Lisanna, along with some Natsu/Lucy and Fried/Mirajane
Synopsis: Lisanna isn't quite sure what to make of some things in Earthland anymore after spending two years in Edolas, not the least of which is the loss of her childhood love Natsu to Lucy. For a change of pace, she takes a mission that will get her out of town for at least a while, but ends up biting off more than she can chew. Fried and Bixlow go to rescue her at Mirajane's request, and when the original mission turns out to be more than it originally seemed, they all stay to see it through. Meanwhile, Bixlow and Lisanna end up connecting a little better than either had ever expected.
Comments: About a crack pairing, but the fic itself is very good. It also takes a good look at Lisanna's feelings about Natsu and Lucy's relationship without making her whiny or an out-of-character jerk like so many fics in the FT section do. The build up to both the romance and the action is slow and very natural, and everyone is wonderfully in character. It even goes into Bixlow's past and showcases several of the things that made him into the man he now is. The author's native language is not English so her grammar and whatnot are not perfect, but the fic is in no way incoherent, all the while presenting a believable way for Bixlow and Lisanna to become interested in each other. Definitely worth a read.
Synopsis: Lucy finds Sting drunk after the tournament and decides to help him out. He shows up later wanting to repay her and the two begin a series of favors owed that slowly develops into a relationship. Fearing the wrath of either their guild mates or guild master should it get out that they're dating, the two try to keep one another secret.
Comments: Sting hasn't really shown up enough yet to judge whether he's out of character or not, but the rest of the cast is spot on. Their courtship is really cute and a lot of the scene are pretty hilarious. Your heart may bleed a bit for Natsu, though, and the author mixed up Raven Tail with a certain Hogwarts house right at the beginning, unfortunately.
Synopsis: Lucy Heartphillia is thrown into a deep slumber meant to last until she is rescued by her "prince charming", she is left in a tower guarded by a fearsome dragon. Somehow, things don't go according to plan.
Comments: It borders on 90k words. Some grammatical errors, but nothing too jarring. The shout-out to Shrek was particularly enjoyable.
Pairing: Natsu/Lucy is the main focus, but other couples (Gray/Juvia, Gajeel/Levy) also appear.
Synopsis: She didn't belong to him. ...Yet.
Comments: Probably one of the most realistic takes on Natsu/Lucy I've ever read, compared to the vast majority of garbage that's usually written. It starts with Lucy finding out she's out of the loop as to everyone regarding her as "Natsu's girl", and spirals off into fluff, complications, and mixed messages.
Other: Also check out You Stole the Rain, a spin-off featuring Gray/Juvia as the main pairing.
Also check out another spin-off of this fic with Levy/Gajeel as the main focus: Limits
Synopsis: Some claim that dreams reveal true desires.
Comments: Adorable is the only way I can describe it. Gray realizes he is in love with Lucy via dreams, and attempts to "woo" her (thanks, Elfman). It doesn't end well. ...At first. Features some beautiful descriptions, and the way the author weaves the dreams with reality is breathtaking.
Synopsis: Theirs was not a relationship that got off at an easy start. Unyielding in their convictions, he is as intent on backing away as she is on moving forward. Set during the Magic Tournament. Now officially AU.
Synopsis: AU set in the Magnolia-version of New York during the 1920s Prohibition. In a world of hostile takeovers, bootleggers and speakeasies, two prejudiced individuals learn that getting along is about as easy as drinking in public.
Comments: It's fun to see how the author adopts Fairy Tail to the 20s. For example, Gajeel is a former boxer turned enforcer turned bootlegger. What's not to like?
Synopsis: "Magic Under the Influence! Friends don't let friends drink and use magic, at least not without a permit." Unable to forget her defeat in a drinking game at the hands of Bacchus and unable to get him out of her head, Cana accepts an invitation to participate as a staff member at a local beer festival to help herself cool down. She's not too amused when the very person she's been trying to forget shows up as well.
Comments: Interestingly enough for a fic about two people bonding over their mutual love of alcohol, there is also quite a bit about drinking responsibly and safely, particularly in the first chapter. The author does an awesome job at exploring Cana in depth instead of simply leaving her as an alcoholic, and also does the same for Bacchus. The interactions between the two flow very naturally, with Cana of course being rather wary of his intentions at first and, moreover, very much unused to the way he goes about attempting to court her, all the while considering the ramifications of starting any sort of relationship with him. However, her concerns are easy to relate to, and not once does it stray into soap opera territory. There are a few fancharacters scattered about, but they are all background characters and add to the plot nicely. All in all, it's wonderful to see a fic that explores the relationship that might develop between these two in depth, and the author does a fabulous job at portraying everything.
Pairing: Gray/Juvia with some Gajeel/Levy, Natsu/Lucy, Fried/Mirajane, and Alzack/Bisca
Synopsis: Pre Time Skip - Juvia, now a 23 year old woman, is pregnant with the baby of her long time crush Gray Fullbuster and she's freaking out. Join Juvia on this amazing journey discovering how to be a mother and still be a Fairy Tail's mage.
Comments: This fic explores the relationship between Gray and Juvia, and their quest of becoming parents and their relationship as more than friends and less than lovers ( though it doesn't stay this way for long). Also included is a curse that's been on Juvia's family for generations, and Gray's desperation to somehow lift it before it's too late. The author's native language is not English, so there are some grammar and spelling issues, but these shrink down noticeably as the fic goes on.
Synopsis: Zeref sends Natsu back in time to grow stronger in order to defeat him and protect his friends who died during the fight with him. Now Natsu has to relive his battles, but this time as a much stronger mage.
Comment: A great time-travel story with very strong characterisation. Natsu really shows his dark side when he thinks about what happened on Tenro Island, and the harem is very well pulled off; everyone gets a good amount of time with Natsu on certain chapters.
Tags: There are lemons, but chapter 20 and future chapters with sex in them will be here:  or here: [[tp://yourfanfiction.com/viewuser.php?uid=1961]]
Synopsis: Natsu goes on the S-Class mission with his fiancÚ, Lisanna and her siblings. However, even with him there, the loss of a family member is inevitable. What would happen to Natsu as a result of this outcome? Will Natsu stay the same or will his dark past arise and take over?
Synopsis: When Jellal messes up an ancient spell he finds himself pregnant with Erza's child. And to make matters worse, when her friends find out, he has to live with her. Pre Tower of Heaven. Mpreg, obviously.
Synopsis: A crossover with The Legend of Zelda. After his defeat in Ocarina of Time, Ganondorf attempts to drag Link into the dimension of his banishment with him. Link retaliates, but the result sends him hurling through dimensions to land in Earthland, back in his child's body. Follows storyline of Fairy Tail with Link added to the mix while he tries to find a way to return to Hyrule.
Comments: This is not an average sent to a new world fic, Link as been in Earthland for 8 years when the story starts and has relationships with the characters and his own orginal story that are expanded in flashbacks.
A little bit of YMMV here. On one hand, it is a fairly good fic and Link's magic is explored pretty well. On the other hand, Link has a problem with being a Spotlight-Stealing Squad, often taking Natsu's fights and leaving him as a bit of a background character.
For me, it was great and felt like it had a solid grasp on how Link would act, until he started to talk. Once he started to actively participate in every conversation and gave up his Heroic Mime status, he started to feel like another Erza, just with different equipment.
Synopsis: Death is impartial. It never takes part in people's conflicts or quarrels. But Death is not supposed to be human. That sole fact changes the equation completely. He got there through a strange anomaly and now, Ichigo Kurosaki, finds himself in Earthland; watching over a rambunctious organization called Fairy Tail and its reckless members. Team Natsu being his main frustration.
Comments: Simply a marvellous read. Everyone is in character, the pacing is excellent despite numerous time-skips to highlight the main points of each arc where Fairy Tail's members are close to death (this is mostly chapter 1; chapter 2 doesn't do it as much), and the plot overall is simply top-notch. And its ending? It will warm your heart the same way Fairy Tail does. Everyone has to read this; it must not be missed.
Synopsis: A land where Magic is not secluded, a land where Dragons and mystical creatures still exist. In another world lies a lone hero who strive for the happiness of everyone. Fate seems to work on the strangest of ways... then again, a hero's duty is never done, right?
Synopsis: Kallen Kozuki is a 17 year old mage. She's been kicked out of two guilds and seen the fall of a third. She's come to Fiore's town of Loreon to meet a mage consultant that might help her with her inability to control her power, which leads her to have the opportunity to join the mage guild Knightmare Frame.

Synopsis: War is hell. It took a while, but Naruto finally understood Pain's words. However, the war becomes the least of his worries when he is brutally thrust from his homeland into the great unknown. Welcome to Earthland. Population: Mages. Nin nin! Naruto x Erza, Naruto x Ultear?
Tags: Slight FT AU with the divergences growing as the story progresses. Rated T.
Synopsis: The R-System activates early, bringing a certain blue-haired protagonist to a new world. How will he cope with it? What will he change? And why does he so often get confused with a 'Celestial Spirit Mage? Do they shoot themselves in the head to summon beings of mass destruction too?
Tags: AU. Rated M for language.
Comments: The story takes place after Persona 3, so there are spoilers from the game.
Synopsis: Shortly after the Grand Magic Games arc, Lucy acquires a black key that summons a random Shinigami every time it is used and a white key that summons a random Arrancar every time it is used. This makes her a target for the demons from the Book of Zeref, who claim the keys belong to him.
Comments: Has lots of Ship Tease between numerous characters. The author has noted to wanting to showcase as many Bleach characters as possible, so the fic is set before the Winter War. Has a trope page.

Synopsis: 'How did he get himself into these kinds of situations' - Carbuncle, a young agent trained in espionage and subterfuge, is forced by the Magic Council into infiltrating the deadly Dark Guild Oracion Seis. Formerly independent, he has to work together with an eclectic group to survive.
Comments: A wonderful Send Your O Cs story. In fact, the best I've read. Halcyon really has a knack for handling O Cs, finding ways to deal even with horribleMarySues sent her way. The jokes are hilarious and the grammar's good to boot! Read it if you need your faith in O Cs restored. Also: Carbuncle's Bitchiness says hi.
Synopsis: AU: I wished someone had told me beforehand that life in Fairy Tail world wasn't easy. The thrill of being a mage couldn't quite compensate for the problems I'm going through. [Self-Insert, Male OC]
Comments: It's obviously a Self-Insert, but it's actually good. Some characters may be a little off, but it's possibly because the story starts before canon does. Oh, yeah, and these guys show up too.
Synopsis: AU, Waking up in a world that's eerily perfect, in the body of a stranger child, a girl chases after a stranger who claims to know the way home; but when she discovers the truth about this perfect world she must decide the value of her own life before condemning another to a fate worse than death, or killing herself to save them. Self Insert, SI, OC.
Comments: Another Self-Insert, though well-written. Laxus-centric. Unfortunately, the author has not updated in a while.
