The shorts are self-contained but usually reference each other, and are minimally voiced.
  • Pairings: None, unless you count the elderly OC's in "From The Ground Up".

  • Recommended by: Silverfireneko

"Minecraft: The Awakening by Midnight Vixen and Twilitangel
  • Recommended by: Detective Robo Monkey
  • Synopsis: A comic featuring Steve, Herobrine, and original character Mindy. The art is fantabulous, the story(or what we've seen so far) is incredible, and it's completely worth the wait between updates.
  • Note: Takes its own sweet time updating, but updates tend to come in pairs and deviantArt's message system doesn't always notify you immediately.
  • Pairings: None at all, so far.

  • Pairing(s): OC/Harem

My Craft by OnTheCobb
  • Recommended by: Stingbeam
  • Status: Ongoing.
  • Synopsis: Devoid of memory or purpose, a new Crafter is pushed forth into the unforgiving land of Minecraftia. Armed with nothing but his wits, he must…well…actually he's pretty witless. Hopefully he won't get killed in the first week. Hopefully.
  • Pairings: None.
  • Comments: A lighthearted comedy fic (with a plot), with its fair share of moments between seriousness, and laughable scenes. As the synopsis points out, the MC of this fic has NO common sense what so ever during the first couple dozen chapters. The OCs in this fic are fleshed out, and the lore makes sense. One of those fics that stand out. Also helps that the author updates (bi)weekly.
