Authors and Web SitesNothing yet Crimson Butterfly by Chendzeea Li
- Recommended by Alexlayer
- Pairing(s): Mio/Mayu
- Synopsis: A novelization of the events of Fatal Frame II, following the story of Mio and Mayu with more detail and Character Development.
- Comments: Really a wonderful retelling of the game, which such sophisticated description that it really lives up to the atmosphere of the game. Another big trait of the fanfic, which should probably also be a warning, is that the relationship between Mio and Mayu is taken up to a stronger level and it develops into a romantic one while both twin sisters fight to survive the horrors of the Lost Village.

- Synopsis: While on a camping trip with Ichigo and Rukia, Karin and Yuzu are lured into an old village by a crimson butterfly. Fatal Frame II and Bleach Crossover Spoilers for Arrancar Arc and parts of FFII
- Comments: While I can't do it much justice, I can tell you it is a interesting read involving Rukia's past and being set I think 20 years after the events of Fatal Frame II. While you may think they might just breeze by with there Shinigami forms they conveniently don't have access to them in this story so you will still see use of the camera.

- Synopsis: The story begins not too long after the canon ending of Fatal Frame II. Mio, who is living with Kei, is not in a good state. Kei, meanwhile, is trying to figure out just what he should do for Mio, if there even is anything he can do. He ends up taking her along with him on his visit to the Kuze Shrine, and it all just sort of explodes from there.
- Comments: It's a one-shot, and thus not as long as many other fics out there, but even so, plenty of emotion is packed into it. It greatly expands on Mio and Kei's relationship, and both are written believably. The writing itself has a lot of heart, and is descriptive without ever falling into Purple Prose territory. It's both very sad and very touching, and it would be well worth your time to check it out.

- Synopsis: The process of becoming a tattooed priestess; Reika thinks of Kaname.
- Comments: Its only a shortish one-shot, but the story is very touching as it describes Reika's past before FF 3 begins. The way the preparations are described feel so believable and like they really could have happened. Well worth ten minutes to read.
