[[WMG: Authors and Websites]]

Anything by ''[[ Lixxle]]''
* Recommended by Tropers/RabidCookie, Elenor
* She does really good humor and romance. Comes down much heavier on humor but does have enough romance to satisfy most J/S shippers.

Stories by ''[[ PaisleyRose]]''
* Recommended by Elenor
* She does romance. More serious stories, some a little dark, but all of them different.

Stories by ''[[ Subtilior]]''
* Recommended by Elenor, Sailor Boo, Meimay
* For people craving the darker stories. Mostly Jareth/Sarah, well, not romance though they do end up together after a fashion.
** Sailor Boo: Warning: Reading some of her stories late at night? Might sound alright before you realize the supreme mastery of the mindfuck and nightmare fuel that she possesses.

Stories by ''[[ K.L. Morgan]]''
* Recommended by notquiteanonymous
* Wonderful Labyrinth writer who focuses primarily on J/S; focuses more on romance and adventure than humor, great if you're looking for something long. Most of her fics are not for kiddies.

Stories by ''[[ Kadasa Mori]]''
* Recommended by Tropers/AryaAdrianiel
* Kadasa writes mostly romance (J/S) and most of her oneshots are humorous fics. Her fic, Heal Me, Hurt Me and it's sequel mix humor and angst, both being quite long, even though the sequel is unfinished. '''Note:''' Jareth and Sarah are very out of character in her stories, but the personalities they are given are written very well and are very consistant.
** Seconded. Kadasa's fics are just the kind of fun you want after a bad day, or if you just want a good laugh.

Stories by ''[[ Dreamer In Silico]]''
* Recommended by DefiantAscent , {{Tropers/Kyr_of_Void}}
* Dreamer In Silico predominantly writes plot-heavy J/S (Talespinner + Love Without Your Heartbeat + announced sequel) that takes place well after the movie and draws heavily from Celtic mythology as well as other subtle literature/cultural references. Her work is intricately-detailed and definitely rewards attentive readers, though those just looking for some suspenseful romance will be satisfied as well. She has also done a bit of light-hearted fic with a focus on humor.
* The main story now has its own trope page: {{Fanfic/Talespinner}}

Anything by ''[[ Nagia]]''
* Recommended by Meimay
* Whether it's a normal fic or a crossover fic, Nagia's managed to create a distinguished style for each story that will make you unable to stop reading until the end.

Anything by J.R. Godwin ''[[ FF]]'' | ''[[ AO3]]''
* Recommended by silenceinspace
* J.R. Godwin has an assortment of fics, and "Snapshots," or one-shots. "Elegy" and "Eulogy" are psychologically terrifying (in the vein of Subtilior's fics), while "Fledgling" is beautiful, balanced, and more focused on magic.

Anything by ''[[ Jacqueline Patricks]]''
* Recommended by Arashi110
* This is written by a professional author with published original works, and it shows, especially the later fics. But really, everything she writes is of excellent quality in both characterization and style, the only minor complaint being occasional spelling mistakes. She writes robust magical fantasy with well-developed world-building, a healthy dose of drama and unexpected plot twists. Her latest and the most light-hearted fic, ''Oh, Now Why the Concern?'', also features a Jareth that is very close to what he was in the movie.

[[WMG:[[GenFic General Fics]]]]

* ''Status'': Ongoing
* ''Pairing(s)'': Jareth/Sarah, Raoul/Christine (The Erik/Christine ship is officially sunk)
* ''Synopsis'': In a small flat somewhere on the outskirts of metafiction Sarah has moved in with soprano and professional Prima Donna, Christine Daae after her old roommate couldn't handle the constant attention Sarah received from a certain sparkly stalker. Bizarrely enough Christine can relate. And more bizarrely still said stalkers are renting the flat directly below them.
* ''Tags'': MetaFic, RecursiveFanfiction (A Webcomic/{{Roommates}} SpinOff), MegaCrossover (with ThePhantomOfTheOpera, Franchise/PiratesOfTheCaribbean, Theatre/LesMiserables, Literature/GoodOmens, Film/TheLordOfTheRings, Film/TheRockyHorrorPictureShow, Film/SweeneyToddTheDemonBarberOfFleetStreet, and Film/TheWizardOfOz), ''{{Webcomic/Buildingverse}}''fic.

''Webcomic/{{Roommates}}'' by [[ AsheRhyder]] ([[ link]])
* ''Recommended by'': Tropers/{{Malitia}}
* ''Status'': Ongoing
* ''Synopsis'': Parent series of ''Webcomic/GirlsNextDoor'' and ''Webcomic/DownTheStreet''' the work that started the whole MegaCrossover madness. So in a parallel earth where fictional beings go after the story ends, there is a secret university town... where [[Film/{{Labyrinth}} Jareth]], [[ThePhantomOfTheOpera Erik]], [[Franchise/PiratesOfTheCaribbean James Norrington]] and [[Theatre/LesMiserables Javert]] (and many more) live together in the same apartment building and try to survive each other and the modern world. While still running mostly on fanservice and comedy Webcomic/{{Roommates}} unlike its spin-offs is more adventure oriented with highly meta questions about the TheoryOfNarrativeCausality and prone to extreme MoodWhiplash and CerebusRollercoaster.
