Do warn when a fanfic may head into homosexual or non-canon territory. Some people just don't like it, and as we all know, Shipping is Serious Business.
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.A Play About Nobody and Nothing by mamasimios
Comments: Saying it's hilarious is an understatement. The closest thing I could describe it as is Neopets's very own Discworld (though it's better described as similar to Regular Show}: a distinctive brand of humour that makes the most mundane, overused cliches hilarious. It's also somewhat notable for the Ho Yay the author managed to insert. In fact, it's amazing how Lennert even made it past the censors. A very well-done series.
Synopsis: What happens when scientists at Virtupets Space Station devise a way to input emotion in a robot.
Comments: All the films tell us it's not a good idea when robots grow a heart, and this fanfic's no different. It still manages to be well-written and quite the Tear Jerker, so bring the tissues if you're easily overcome.
Synopsis: Dr. Sloth has assembled some of the finest criminal minds in Neopia to announce his new plans for world domination! Now if only they could all get along...
Comments: This is the reason why there isn't a Villain Team-Up in Neopets: their individual goals and MOs are so different from each other they can't work together. Also includes a lot of hilarity ensuing both from the different personalities clashing against each other and the complete insanity of Sloth's plan.
Synopsis: The wealthy Mr. Jennings, who essentially controls Neopia Central, is transported back in time to a rather different version of the city.
Comments: Really, anything written by herdygerdy is worth a read- especially his numerous series which star Mr. Jennings. This one in particular is a personal favorite, but it's best enjoyed when you've already read through his other series. A good place to start would be Viva la Resistance! . (full list of works)
Seconded. Although the distinct similarities to Discworld and the author's dislike of the word "said" are a bit annoying, the series itself is done extremely well and is an excellent read.
Synopsis: You, the magnificent Dr. Sloth, have finally decided that the Neopian Times has made a fool of you for long enough. But with so many choices to make, how will you accomplish this task?
Comments: This is a pretty noteworthy competition, although all of them are very good in their own right. What makes this one unique is that it first breaks from the norm by writing in a rare second person perspective (of Dr. Sloth, no less), then follows it up in the next entry with a choose-you-own-adventure style of story. An entertaining read, as well.
Synopsis: Someone told me once that I could be famous...
Comments: A gorgeously written story, told by three narrators- Anna, the shadow lupe and author; an unnamed brown hissi and singer; and an unnamed red usul actress. Its beautifully written, and very creative. One of the best stories in the Neopian Times.
Synopsis: Brynn's diary, from her first week in the Brightvale guard, hopefully right up to the start of TFR. I hope. It starts with her as a child, and will progress through until she's a young adult about 18 , as that's how old I see her as in TFR.
Comments: Brynns diary, starting from her joining the goards at age seven in January, and at this writing, all the way to April at age 12. This fic is wonderfully written, very in character, and the author captures the essance of Brynn and Hanso's relationship perfectly. It has a companion, Hanso's Journal, which tells us what Hanso was doing during all that time. Hanso's Journal also starts in January at age 7; however, it so far only reaches July at age 10.
Synopsis: The story of an unnamed Neopet, who regularly drinks Morphing Potions to change her appearance; so often, in fact, that she's forgotten who she truly is.
Comments: A beautiful and bittersweet story, one that also offers several insights into Neopian stereotypes. This tale has haunted me for almost a year now, drawing me back in and keeping me searching for answers, and I know that whoever takes the time to read it will feel the same way.
Synopsis: Hanso's stories are popular with the young faerie neopets, and the kids demand that he finally tell them FULL the story of how he saved the faeries! The story of The Faeries Ruin plot, from Hanso's POV, with Brynn correcting him when necessary, of course.
Synopsis: Direct sequel to Angelpi and Qasalan Coffee. Life in the Faerieland Guards isn't as rosy as one might think, especially when a guard named Eselde has it out for Brynn. Hanso, of course, will make sure that Eselde gets what's coming to her!
Synopsis: Angry about Bonju being allowed back on-board the ship, Hoban crossly states that Captain Tuan should have made HIM the cook - and gets a chance to live up to his comment when Bonju gets sick.
