[[WMG: Authors, and Websites]]

''[[ GoldSeven]]''
* Recommended by @/{{Gamebird}}
* ''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 GoldSeven creates an entire cast of believable, realistic [=EMT=]s 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.

''[[ Connie Welsh]]''
* Recommended by @/{{Gamebird}}
* ''Comments'': Powerful, moving erotic Peter/Sylar slash stories.

''[[ Texts From Primatech]]''
* Recommended by missmoon
* ''Comments'': The Heroes universe as depicted by Website/TextsFromLastNight. HilarityEnsues.

[[WMG:[[GenFic General Fics]]]]
''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)
* Recommended by @/{{Tabby}}
* ''Status'': Complete
* ''Pairing(s)'': Mohinder/"Nathan", others
* ''Synopsis'': A FixFic for the FridgeLogic 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.

''[[ Purgatory]]'' by Alydia_Rackham
* Recommended by @/{{Gamebird}}
* ''Status'': Complete
* ''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]] (Complete) by the same author that is also outstanding.

''[[ Cell]]'' by sinemoras09
* recommended by @/DontKillBugs
* ''Status'': Complete
* ''Pairings'': Claire/Adam
* ''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 DarkFic? There are too many comedic/cute moments interspersed between the TearJerker moments for that. Is it a comedy? Too much of a TearJerker. Is it a romance? A little yes, a little no. However you classify it, ''Cell'' is a definite TearJerker that any ''Heroes'' fan should read. Warning:[[spoiler:Character Death.]]

''[[ We All Break the Same]]'' by The Awesome Factory
* recommended by @/DontKillBugs
* ''Status'': Complete
* ''Pairings'': Claire/Adam (Friendship)
* ''Synopsis'': In an AU where Linderman's plan to destroy New York led to a Nuclear Apocalypse, Adam and Claire meet over a fire. If you're going to live forever, no sense in doing it alone.
* ''Comments'': A rather touching story that plays on the similarities between Adam and Claire, who is cranked into high [[TheWoobie Woobie]] levels for this story. A great read.

''Comedy stories.''

''[[ Road (To Hell Is Paved With Good Intentions) Trip]]'' by squills
* Recommended by @/{{feral}}
* ''Status'': Complete
* ''Pairing(s)'': Many.
* ''Synopsis'': ''"There are so many different ways to save the world...and so many different ways to screw it all up."'' The consequences of [[IdiotHero 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.

''[[ Which Peter is it Anyway?]]'' by zookitty
* Recommended by @/{{feral}}
* ''Status'': Complete
* ''Synopsis'': Beginning of Season 3, the consequences of an IdiotHero playing with time travel. Staring Peter and Nathan.
* ''Comments'': Short, hilarious little crack fic.

''[[ Heroes Abridged With Commentary]]'' by Anonymius
* Recommended by @/{{feral}}
* ''Status'': Complete
* ''Synopsis'': Heroes abridged comedy series ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin.
* ''Comments'': Very funny. Watchout for [[BoringFailureHero Copycat]]. And BRAAAAAAAAAAAAIINS!

''[[ Heroes In A Chatroom]]'' by Yellowfur
* Recommended by @/{{Meshakhad}}
* ''Status'': Dead
* ''Synopsis'': The Heroes characters in a chatroom.
* ''Comments'': The usernames alone make it hilarious, but when they start breaking out their powers...

''[[ Mohinder's Twelve Days of Christmas]]'' by Besarien
* Recommended by: @/DontKillBugs
* ''Status'': Complete
* ''Pairings'': Mohinder/Sylar
* ''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 [[spoiler:ten teeth, six million dollars, and three dead Petrelli's.]]

''[[ Diary Of Lyle Or Is It Larry?]]'' by Blue Whitney
* Recommended by: @/CausalityStar
* ''Status'': Complete
* ''Pairing(s)'': One-sided Sylar/Claire (not really pairing-centric)
* ''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.

''[[ A Very Larry Thanksgiving]]'' by Blue Whitney
* Recommended by: @/CausalityStar
* ''Status'': Complete
* ''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.

''[[ Unmade]]'' by Corona
* Recommended by @/{{feral}}, kph2pt0
* ''Status'': Complete
* ''Pairing(s)'': [[StockholmShnozzing Mild/Pre- Sylar/Peter slash.]]
* ''Synopsis'': ''[[{{Fanfic/Unmade}} "The wall is thick enough that it feels like plastic, spanning the entire breadth and separating both rooms."]]'' [[LockedInAFreezer Peter and Sylar are imprisoned together by the Company.]]
* ''Comments'': Dark fic AU post season 2. It's a two-parter. The Company assassinated Nathan pre-story.
** Seconded. This is seriously one of the best fics I've ever read.

''[[ Deep Sleep]]'' by Del Rion
* Recommended by @/{{feral}}, seconded by @/{{Hazgarn}}
* ''Status'': Complete
* ''Pairing'': None unless you really want to make an effort. (i.e. no more HoYay 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.''
* ''Comments'': A BadFuture world where [[PersonOfMassDestruction Peter]] becomes the [[SealedGoodInACan American government's secret weapon]]. (Think [[ComicBook/{{Watchmen}} Dr. Manhattan]] or [[ComicBook/XMen Weapon X]]). [[ Now has a sequel.]] (Complete)

''A Walk On The Other Side'' by yo_mawari
* Recommended by @/{{feral}}
* Vanished from the internet. Please post a link if found.
* ''Pairing(s)'': Peter/Sylar(Gabriel)
* ''Synopsis'': [[AlternateUniverseFic AU]] DarkFic, Peter vs. Sylar... [[spoiler:[[MirrorUniverse with a twist...]] (you know they're NotSoDifferent really.)]]
* ''Comments'': Something of a {{Deconstruction}} with [[SlashFic slash]]. Really plays up the whole DysfunctionJunction and BadPowersBadPeople / BlessedWithSuck elements of the series.

''Stories focused on the romantic relationships between the cast.''

''[[ A Different Kind Of Special]]'' by Cazrolime
* Recommended by @/{{Tabby}}
* ''Status'': Complete
* ''Pairing'': Sylar/Heidi. .
* ''Synopsis'': Takes the UnfortunateImplications of [[spoiler: Sylar impersonating Nathan]] and runs with it beautifully.
* ''Comments'': If you're in the market for good, unusual "Five Years Gone" fic, look no further. It is ''brilliant''.

''[[ Nascent]]'' by Svilleficrecs
* recommended by @/{{brittanyw}}
* ''Status'': Complete
* ''Pairing'': Peter/Claire
* ''Synopsis'': Claire and Peter push the limits of the regenerative power. Set vaguely in an AU from season one.
* ''Comments'': Quite long (more than 20k words). It's very ''carnal'', focused on physicality and sexuality. Killer ending.

''[[ Complications]]'' by Isagel
* recommended by @/{{brittanyw}}
* ''Status'': Complete
* ''Pairing'': Zane!Sylar/Mohinder
* ''Synopsis'': Takes place in S1, before Mohinder finds out who Zane is.
* ''Comments'': What I love most is the sections about clockwork that frame the story.

''[[ Finesse]]'' by tiptoe39
* recommended by @/{{Maxwell_Edison}}
* ''Status'': Complete
* ''Pairing'': Adam/Monica
* ''Synopsis'': Monica tells the story of a bank heist she and Adam foiled, taking detours down memory lane along the way.
* ''Comments'': This takes a very cracky pairing and just makes it work. The POV (first person from Monica's perspective) really helps to set the tone, and her voice is very well written.

''[[ Forgotten]]'' by Lara-Van
* recommended by @/{{Snowlilly}}
* ''Status'': Complete
* ''Pairing'': Future!Peter/Daphne
* ''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.
