Synopsis: Dio sits at his favorite chair by the window, a polished wood table at his side, a crystal glass (wine, red and rich) held delicately between the fingers of one hand. In the other, he holds the skull. A souvenir? A treasure? Who can even tell the difference, sometimes. (Diox Jonathon, kind of. Well, he's talking to a skull so. 650 words)
Synopsis: The journey to Egypt has led Jotaro and Kakyoin to discover life, death, fate, and something completely unexpected.
Warnings: Smut and spoilers for Stardust Crusaders, including character death.
Comments: Donít dismiss this fanfiction because it has gay sex as soon as in the first chapter (which can be skipped if you absolutely insist on it) Ė this is simultaneously one of the most heart-breaking AND heart-warming fanfictions you could ever have the pleasure of reading. It tells us a sweet, tragic love story between Jotaro and Kakyoin during their quest to defeat Dio. It masterfully mixes the blossoming of young love with eventual tragedy, and does it with such care and sincerity that this troper (who NEVER cries at fanfics) could not help but be reduced to a giant ball of Inelegant Blubbering during the final chapter. Our main characters are written in a way that explores their personalities and chemistry together without ever feeling out of character, making their thoughts and actions throughout the story genuinely believable. The sex scenes, while graphic, are NOT pornographic purely for the sake of the readerís arousal, but rather showcases how the relationship between Jotaro and Kakyoin has evolved and the way they react to one another. Itís also worth mentioning that this fic does a great job of fleshing out Abdulís background and tying his character into the theme of the story. Overall, Der Strom is a beautiful, bittersweet piece of fanfiction that must not be missed, provided you can handle the homosexual note and technically underage love-making scenes. Bring tissues.

Comments: So far, the author has been able to keep all the elements that made Code Geass what it was while also keeping everything that made Jojo so great, rock references and all! Not to mention making Shirley something even more than just an innocent bystander. I highly recommend this fic, be it if our a Code Geass or Jojo fan! It now has a Trope Page that Needs Wiki Magic Love.
Synopsis: Johnny Joestar was a young man who had it all. A rich family, fame, respect, and numerous adoring fans. But an action done out of pride cost him everything, including his legs. He left for Inaba to escape from his memories, but Johnny is now dragged into to a bizarre murder case. A mystery which may teach the former genius jockey that bonds can make the most broken bird fly again...
Comments: There are hardly any good Jojo fanfics out there, and this one is shaping up to be one of the greats. Especially with the main character of choice being Johnny Joestar, the crippled protagonist of Part Seven Steel Ball Run. So far, the interactions between Johnny and the residents of Inaba are very amusing and a stark contrast with the Protagonist of Persona 4.
