- Synopsis: A set of vignettes about the various Haibane, and the events that eventually brought them to Glie.
- Comments: It's a massive Tear Jerker, especially considering that children are involved; do not read without Kleenex nearby, because you're going to need it. There are spoilers about the Haibane themselves (and Reki and Rakka in particular), but overall the story is well worth the read.

- Synopsis: The history of mankind is a lie. All knowledge, all memories, anything from before 220 years ago is false. And it is because of my work that this is so. My name is Claudius Ptolemy... scientist, philosopher, engineer, dreamer... What a fool I was...
- Comments: What happens when you cross awesome with awesome? Awesome happens. Very well thought out fic that combines Haibane Renmei with several other fanfics and makes it work. Part of a huge overweaving story but can be read alone. It's that's well put together. Be sure to set some time aside from reading this fic, because the chapters are long, but at the same time don't drag on and on.

- Synopsis: An unofficial sequel taking place four months after the end of the anime, highlighting the life of a haibane called Mado.
- Comments: A charming fanfic unofficially declared Fanon. You be the judge.
