[[ flYegurl's]] fanfics

* Recommended by: Underwood
* This writer has written all sorts of good Maximum Ride fanfics -- from funny parodies to heartfelt fluff to thrilling stories. One of her biggest series, the Asleep Quartet, has over 900 great reviews on FanFiction
* Pairings: Her favorite seems to be Miggy, though she does dabble in other pairings as well.
* Warnings: She has plenty of dark stories on her page. [[MindRape Mind Rape]], mental illness, self-injuring, and even an implied rape scene all can be found in the Awake series. Taken is by far her darkest one, involving this troper's favorite character getting tortured by a madman. If you don't like that sort of stuff, she has lighter stories too, but it's hard to tell which is which from the description, so be careful.

[[WMG:[[GenFic General Fics]]]]
''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.''

''[[ Stillborn]]'' by ''[[ mergirl007]]''
* Recommended by EpitomeORandom
* ''Status'': Complete
* Pairings: Fang/Max, Iggy/Max
* Synopsis: Max experiences a miscarriage. Again.
* Comments: Short, dark, and very close to what would happen if The Flock did try to reproduce. Well written and with just a hint of Max/Iggy that gives it a little bit of a happier ending.

''[[ Icaria]]'' by ''[[ Kimsa Ki-Lurria]]''
* Recommended by Fishbird
* ''Status'': Complete
* Synopsis: Iggy is captured and brought to Jeb. Faced with his mistakes, Jeb is forced to question his motives and actions of the past fourteen years. Who does he owe allegiance to? The School, his mutant son, or a winged boy determined to hate him? AU.
* Comments: If you're an Iggy, Ari, or Jeb fan this is definitely the story for you. The three are perfectly in character but slowly develop even more dimension then their original book selves. The other characters don't get quite as much attention but still are true to their original personalities. The plot is gripping and (mostly later on) full of heartwarming moments.
** Seconded. This story is ''wonderful,'' with a believable and engaging redemption story for Ari and a very well-done villain, but be warned that it seems to be a DeadFic by now, and it breaks off on an absolutely BRUTAL cliffhanger.

''The Plan'' by ''[[ Thestupidgenius1123]]''
* Recommended by Aquatica1000
* ''Status'': Vanished from the internet. Please post a link if found.
* Synopsis: An AU starting at the end of FANG. Max and Fang plan on keeping the Flock on the plan of saving the world by [[spoiler: having Fang leave on purpose and pretending to break up]]. Soon after, the Flock go to destroy the school once and for all, but soon find that it's time for the next stage of the plan to save the world...
* Comments: A brilliantly written Maximum Ride fic. The characters seem believable (even the OCs don't appear flat or Sue-ish!), and the plot starts wrapping up all the loose ends brought up in the first six books -- including the truth about the By-Half Plan -- while still delivering a few shocks of their own. All in all, it's hard to believe that this isn't written by James Patterson himself...

''[[ Try Not to Scream]]'' by ''[[ kamicrazy]]''
* Recommended by gloriouspond
* ''Status'': Complete
* Synopsis: An AU where Ari is brought to live with the Flock prior to the Angel Experiment, and is taken to the School in Angel's place.
* Comments: The fic has just begun, but it's pretty good so far! Characterisation is on-point and the writing is much better than JP's. If you are fond of Ari Batchelder, you should probably read this fic.

''Stories focused on the romantic relationships between the cast.''

''[[ Diary of a Lovesick Mutant]]'' by Phoenix Fanatic
* Recommended by @/{{purplemudkip}}, @/{{EeveeMistress}}
* ''Status'': Complete
* Pairing(s): Fang/Max, some Iggy/Ella and one-sided Nudge/Iggy
* Synopsis: Read Fang's diary as he attempts to tell Max he loves her. However, due to an unexpected event, he must do so in one year...
* Comments: Set after the third book. This fic is absolutely packed with hilarity. It's very well-written, and the plot is original. It is one of the best fics I've read, and I've found myself laughing at what happens in here. The characterization is quite excellent.

''Stories mixing with other canons.''

''[[ Prophecy of Blood]]'' by Gabriel Seraph
* Recommended by markl25
* ''Status'': Complete
* Crossover with: ''Series/TheMentalist''
* Pairing: Fang/Max
* Synopsis: Patrick Jane and the CBI team find Max's dead body in the desert and try to solve her murder. Meanwhile, Fang repeatedly appears on scene and accuses his "dad" (Jeb) of the crime.
* Comments: Set in the year 2020, this story is very much [[AlternateUniverseFic AU]] for both the franchises it's based on - but Fang's inability to get hurt (at least by others) suggests that the details of ''Nevermore'' are influencing the story's direction. Trigger warning: there is a graphic scene of SelfHarm. That said, it's a very good story so far, with many well-written moments including several {{Mythology Gag}}s.
