Authors, and Websites
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.

It's just play
- Reccommended by Spazzyboy
- Synopsis: Taking place one year after Nightmare's defeat, Cappy Town is visited by a jester named Marx who intends to rule with eight ancient mystical stones called Dream Stones. Meanwhile, a force far more terrible than Nightmare arrives, known as Dark Matter. Kirby sets out with friends to locate all the Dream Stones to hopefully defeat Marx, the Dark Matter and even a mechanical clone!
- Comments: A lot of fun to read with its truckload of continuity nods to the games. Interestingly, it takes more from the English 4Kids dub then the original Japanese one unlike most fanfics of the anime.
- Reccommended by Readrunners
- Synopsis: In a typical training session with Meta Knight, Kirby decides to change his training a little bit...non slash, just fatherly affection.
- Comments: Cuteness overload.

- Comments: This fic paints Kirby in different, unusual light you might never think before.

An Unlikely Sort of Paradise
- Recommended by Misterian
- Synopsis: Taking place after Nightmare's defeat by Kirby in the anime, Kirby's adventures continue as the game storylines are entwined into his life. Kirby meets new friends, foes, and foes turned into friends throughout his new adventures.
- Comments: Although it follows the anime continuity to some extent, This fic is actually a series of story arcs that are written somewhat as novelizations of many of the Kirby games, including Kirby 64 and even stories of Kirby Super Star Ultra, but expanded upon to allow for great character developement, especially for Kirby, who in some ways gradually becomes somewhat wiser and more mature as the story progresses, yet also consistently remains the innocent and adorable Kid Hero we all know and love in the process.

Prince of Demon Beasts
- Recommended by Tomaton
- Synopsis: AU anime fic: Customer Service escapes the destruction of Holy Nightmare only to land right back in the frying pan on Popstar. Can he figure out how to get along without Nightmare on a planet full of enemies?
- Comments: The story was published way back in 2008 and lay dormant for a while until now, the author having made plans to revive it. The writing is superbly good at capturing the characters and the action, feeling like a genuine continuation of the anime albeit with some minor tweaks. There are some non-canon things such as mentions of O Cs and a fan name for Customer Service, but they are well-presented and don't distract from the plot.
by Cosmic Giraffe
Stories focused on the romantic relationships between the cast.
- Recommended by Magnus Force
- Synopsis: "Why did he look upon the GSA so highly? Did he really believe they were fighting for justice? While they saved the lives of all other races, they murdered his kind upon sight... and it was the pain and suffering of demon beasts that bled upon battlefields..." Meta Knight's personal fight for glory and honor... all the while, struggling to hang on to his past...

Gijinka Magolor Doujin
- Recommended by Twisted Midnight Dreams
- From the Kirby of the Stars anime, the Journey Diary of Meta Knight, Sword Knight and Blade Knight, from the day Sword and Blade swore fealty to Meta Knight until their arrival on Pop Star.
- Recommended by warpy
- Well, this is certainly a first—it's the first part of a 100+ page Kirby doujin trilogy (which is almost unheard of, for this fandom) done in gijinka form! Contains major spoilers for Kirby's Return to Dream Land, and explores Magolor's backstory, as well as the origin of the Lor Starcutter, before Kirby and his crew battle Magolor Soul.
