Authors, and Websites

  • Recommended by: powerespect
  • A fantastic author and one of the best for Arnold x Helga fics. A few oneshots and quite a few multi-chapter fics. They do get quite long though, with the longest one being over 800,000 words!

Estrelle Buscador
  • Recommended by: fruitstripegum
  • A wonderful author who writes some of the best Arnold x Helga fics I have ever read. They're full of sweet moments, and every single character remains in character.

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.

Falsely Accused by DarthRoden aka Carl
  • Recommended by: fruitstripegum
  • Synopsis: Helga is convicted of a crime she didn't commit and sentenced to a brutal Juvenile Detention Center. Can Arnold, Gerald and Phoebe prove her innocence? A story of Redemption and Love.
  • Comments: There is a spinoff here.
  • This is definitely the best Fanfic I've ever read. It appears to be a Dead Fic and hasn't been updated since 2009. However I have been in talks with the author and it seems it may soon be resolved.
    • The story has currently been deleted, because someone hacked into the author's page and removed it. Luckily, he still has all the chapters written down, but they are printed out on paper, so he has to retype everything. Apparently, he is going to use this as an opportunity to revise it, and hopefully update it.

Dear Arnold: Letters from Hillwood by Perhapsormaybe
  • Recommended by: Masterbow
  • It's a simple high school extra credit project - write a letter to Arnold. His friends in Hillwood are all having some hard times...but letters to their old friend seem to make it feel better. Some Helga/Arnold eventually.
  • Notes: A story carrying on from the planned end of the show that captures the essence of the show.

Stories focused on the romantic relationships between the cast.

Breathing Air by NERD-AVENGER
  • Helga/Brainy
  • recommended by: Charsi
  • Synopsis: The story focuses on the progress of Brainy's feelings for Helga.

Never Too Late by kitkatbar17
  • recommended by: thecarolinabull01
  • Helga/Arnold
  • Synopsis Helga has made a lot of mistakes in her lifetime. Finally things are starting to look up again, but her past still comes back to haunt her. When her daughter befriends an old classmate, she is certain the relationship is yet another dead end. But as fate would have it, Helga learns it is never too late for love.
  • Comments: The story moves at a rather quick pace, but other than that it's a great look into the futures of Arnold and Helga.
