Fanfic Recs: Kid Icarus

Palutena: Pit! Incoming!
Pit: What... are they?
Palutena: Fan fics.
Pit: What are fan fics?
Palutena: Fan Fiction - stories that our fans write about us and put on the Internet.
Pit: Oh! People make stories about my manly exploits? How cool! Too bad I never learned how to read...
Palutena: Don't worry about it, Pit. A lot of fan fics make readers feel like they're trapped in the Underworld.
Pit: Then why do they keep reading them?
Palutena: Because 10-percent of fan fics are worth losing your floor ice cream for!

  • If you like family-relationships between the characters (Palutena and Pit as adopted mother and son, Pit and Dark Pit as brothers), Blender's work is a must-read. Her stories tend toward the emotional, and a few of them are quite dark.

Kid Icarus Modern Uprising by heroes1202
  • Recommended by Wolf Thunder
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopis: Inspired by the "Kid Icarus anime" shorts, these are my versions of Kid Icarus shorts in "episodes", featuring the characters from Uprising. Some feature how the KI cast would survive in the modern world instead.

Kid Icarus Modern Uprising Season 2 by heroes1202

Folly of Gods by Blizzaga Saga
  • Recommended by Wolf Thunder, Zelenal
  • Status: Complete
  • Pairing: Pit/Palutena
  • Synopis: In which Pit trains, Pittoo sulks, and Palutena considers her guardian angel.

I Want to Stay With You by Shadsie
  • Recommended by Wolf Thunder, Zelenal
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopis: "You were so badly hurt… and your wings were so damaged… that I had to make a decision. It was a 'life or limb' decision. I was able to heal you to save your life, but your wings… I couldn't fully heal them. I'm so sorry, Pit." Palutena is forced to give young Pit a dreadful choice.

Wounds of Chaos by Shadsie
  • Recommended by Wolf Thunder
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopis: Set in Uprising, spoilers for Chapter 18 and beyond. Wars leave wounds that are slow to heal. For three years Pit was, quite literally, not himself. After the end of the war, not all humans were cheering, nor were they forgetful. Just because the criminal was innocent does not mean that the damage was undone or forgiven.

Pit's Nightmare by Ability King KK
  • Recommended by Wolf Thunder
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopis: Pit is sent to a temple to retrieve a sacred treasure before Medusa can get it. Unfortunately for him, he'll have to face horrors the likes he never wanted to encounter.

The Bad by Uninformed Otaku
  • Recommended by Wolf Thunder
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopis: After the Hades has been defeated and the Underworld attack has stopped things are going well for Pit. The world is returning to it's version of 'peace', that is, until our hero starts acting strange. He even begins to resist Pittoo and Lady Palutena's attempts to help him! (Rated T just in case. No official pairings.)

A Scent of Burning Feathers by Shadsie
  • Recommended by Wolf Thunder
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopis: Game chapters 21-22 and what happened in between. A pair of goddesses try to keep a dying angel alive. An angel of darker character braves the Underworld itself to repay a sacrifice. In a world ruled by selfish desires, even altruism can be a selfish impulse. In the end, Dark Pit didn't like the thought of owing anyone, nor the stench of burning that scarred his mind.

Dear Palutena by Sorceress of Shadows
  • Recommended by Wolf Thunder
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopis: He waited for her, waited to save her. And while he waited, he wrote her a letter, a letter she wouldn't read...

Comfort by Sorceress of Shadows
  • Recommended by Wolf Thunder
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopis: Palutena is worried. It falls to Dark Pit to console her. Takes place between chapters 21 and 22; a bit of Pittootena if you squint and turn your head.

If You were a Real Goddess by BuddyJack
  • Recommended by Wolf Thunder
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopis: Pit and Viridi get into a heated argument about humans and respect which causes Pit to say something he didn't mean to say and hurts the youthful deity's feelings. A two chapter story.

Why by Link's Little Brother
  • Recommended by Wolf Thunder
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopis: 'You never loved me, right? I was just some boy with a sense of humor to you, correct? But, why did you fall for him instead of me? ' AU. One-sided Hades x Palutena. Hinted Pit x Palutena.

Run Another Day by Lake of Rage
  • Recommended by kilala2tail
  • Status: Completed
  • Synopsis: "You have no idea how embarrassing it is to be an angel who can't even fly on his own." Pit had learned the hard way that flightless angels weren't generally treated well in Skyworld.
  • Comments: Does the ability to fly really show purity of the soul? In which Pit becomes Captain of the Guard.

Ravenwings by Shadsie
  • Recommended by kilala2tail
  • Status: Completed
  • Synopsis: Pit spent three years in stasis, his soul stored in a ring. An old couple living alone find a boy with black wings crash-landed and comatose in their field. For three years, in the absence of a name, they call him "Ravenwings." Even the most independent of beings need a little help sometimes.
  • Comments: Short and sweet little story to fill the plot-hole left by Pit's three-year absence. A nice little "What-if" for Dark Pit, from an author who's grasp on the characters is amazing.
