Comments: Fantastic series of fanfictions based on the adventures of Hesam Malik and Peter Petrelli as paramedics in New York. Hesam has, all told, probably ten minutes of screen time over the entire TV show, but Gold Seven creates an entire cast of believable, realistic EMTs and fills in missing moments throughout the show, whenever Peter was shown at work. She also has drawings (really good ones!) of the characters and a glossary of EMT terms. One of the few fics that teaches you as you read it.
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.What You Wish For, by cerebel. (Male/Male)
Synopsis: A Fix Fic for the Fridge Logic question of why Matt didn't realize that it wasn't really Nathan in the Oval Office.
Comments: Yes, it was adequately explained in the show, but even though the intent behind it bugs me the story is still awesome and still works perfectly well with canon. It's got Matt's voice down better than almost any other story I've seen, and I am damn picky about my Matt fic. Contains a male/male relationship, but only one mildly explicit sexual reference.
Synopsis: This superb story fills in all the missing moments of the fifth season show The Wall, showing more realistically and completely how two enemies could become allies. It is a fascinating, engaging and at times wrenching psychological journey. Peter and Sylar, no slash.
Comments: There is a sequel called Poenitentia by the same author that is also outstanding.
Synopsis: The story of Sylar after he integrates Nathan's memories and how he resolves his shattered sense of identity. There are three successive story arcs: Gabriel regains his freedom; starts a new life as Nathan; reverts to Gabriel and battles Peter's father.
Comments: Complete and long. There is no explicit sexual content in the story, although references are made to published companion stories that chronicle that sort of thing for those interested in it. A sequel is in publication (updates twice a week, pre-written, no threat of Dead Fic), called The Salvation of Acceptance that follows Peter's adventures in uncovering a central mystery to the entire Heroes world. There also exists a wealth of additional material written, set in the same AU, following the adventures of other canon characters.
Synopsis: Adam and Claire, locked up in a Primatech cell.
Comments: Very similar to the below-mentioned Unmade, Cell, is a hard fic to classify. Is it a Dark Fic? There are too many comedic/cute moments interspersed between the Tear Jerker moments for that. Is it a comedy? Too much of a Tear Jerker. Is it a romance? A little yes, a little no. However you classify it, Cell is a definite Tear Jerker that any Heroes fan should read. Warning:Character Death.
Synopsis: "There are so many different ways to save the world...and so many different ways to screw it all up." The consequences of idiot heroes playing with time travel. Staring Mohinder Suresh, Peter Petrelli, Angela Petrelli, Sylar (and mentions of others).
Comments: Very funny commentary on the slashiness of the show. Some language.
Synopsis: What could be worse for Mohinder than Christmas with Agent Hanson? One cup of caffeine that she's not sharing and a serial killer spreading Yuletide cheer.
Comments: A very funny fic where Mohinder, under FBI questioning, describes the various gifts Sylar gave him for the Twelve Days of Christmas, including ten teeth, six million dollars, and three dead Petrelli's.
Synopsis: No one can take that much neglect without cracking, and Lyle is no exception. Herein he chronicles his love of weed, his experimentation with tights, and the forging of one unholy alliance.
Comments: A very funny yet slightly angsty fic where Lyle is a stoner who must deal with constantly being overshadowed by his sister. Lyle also becomes obsessed with tights and capes and forms an odd partnership with Sylar. Sylar spends most of his free time stealing powers or obsessing over Claire (hence the one-sided Sylar/Claire). Told in the form of diary entries written by Lyle.
Pairing(s): One-sided Sylar/Claire (Like the previous fic, this one pokes fun at Sylar's obsession with Claire.)
Synopsis: A squeal/companion fic to "Diary Of Lyle Or Is It Larry". This explains what Lyle was really up to during the "Thanksgiving" episode of season 4, because no one actually has school on a public holiday. Told in the form of Lyle's diary entries.
Comments: It's just as funny as the last fic. Lyle continues to be obsessed with tights and capes and Mr. Muggles is still his nemesis. Lyle is still pissed off about being ignored all the time in favor of Claire. Sylar shows up and he and Lyle have a Thanksgiving dinner consisting of questionable brownies and per usual, Sylar is obsessed with Claire.
Pairing: None unless you really want to make an effort. (i.e. no more Ho Yay than is in the show)
Synopsis: "Peter always wanted to be a hero, but after the greatest failure of his life, all that's left to do is to try repairing the damage he caused; battling his arch-enemy until the end of the world and beyond suddenly doesn't seem far-fetched at all."
Synopsis: A chronicle of Peter and Daphne's relationship in the Season 3 future, with several interesting insights into alternate character motivations for their characters.
Comments: Lara-Van takes a pairing I hadn't actually thought about, twists it into a lovely ball of sadness and sweetness, adds a bit of woobie-Peter and thrusts into the oven that is your heart with the speed and finesse of an eagle's spiral dive. Gorgeous imagery and good writing make it even better.
