Synopsis: Fry wakes up in a dumpster only to find it's one year later, and the life he knew is gone. He'd got to Leela for help...if she wasn't so dead-set on blasting him right off the planet for reasons he doesn't know.
Comments: Easily one of the best Futurama fanfics out there, and one of the better fanfics I've gotten the chance to read period.
Nicoinfinity: Too bad it hasn't been updated in over a year. It's still good despite that, though.
I totally recommend this fic, 100%, don't get me wrong. It is, quite frankly, the most amazing Futurama fics ever. But, the author has dropped off the map, and it ends on one of the most frustrating and evil cliff-hangers you will ever encounter. Just as a warning. Still completely worth the read.
GOOD NEWS, EVERYONE! As of 12/20/12, this fic is updating again!
Synopsis: What if, at the end of "The Cryonic Woman", Fry actually did lose his job?
Comments: It starts out as a basic what-if scenario that happens to take a deep look at Fry's character. And then things get weird... Better than it sounds, with good characters and an interesting yet highly convoluted plot.
Synopsis: "Before you contradict an old man, my fair friend, you should endeavor to understand him." It has, after all, been one thousand years.
Comments: A look at Fry, in a rare (or perhaps just nevershown?) moment of soul crushing loneliness and misery, feeling a thousand years old and seeing the vast, empty expanse of time that separates him from the both the world he belongs to that is gone forever, and the world he is trapped in but can never be a part of. The title refers to a Grimm's Brothers fairy tale.
Synopsis: One too many rejections, Fry. You don't need her. Trust me, Bender knows. Just trust me...Never argue.
Comments: Unbelievably terrifying and one of most horrific things this troper has ever read. The dialogue cruelly beckons the reader along, manipulating them into the same blindness as Fry. Can't elaborate without spoiling, but I hate this story, and love it because it made me hate it so much. Bender fans will have their hearts shattered.
Synopsis: Fry and Leela accidentally swallow pills that links their minds together.
Comments: A romantic Fry/Leela shipping story to the core, but without forgetting the humor and charm of the series. It's chock full of references to the series, while some scenes end up being replicated word-for-word, but that proves little to deride from this amazing piece of work. Everyone is written perfectly in character, especially with Fry playfully toying around with Leela's head before he actually takes things seriously and uses their newly established mental link to reveal to Leela his perspective of events from "Parasites Lost" and "Time Keeps On Slippin'", two episodes in which Leela painfully rejected him for things that were meant to show just how much Fry loves her.
Synopsis: Hottie 4: Even Better Sequel is a Milestone Celebration that not only commemorates the 5th anniversary of Hottie, the the anniversaries of many works of fiction including Futurama, celebrating it's 15th anniversary.
