''[[FanFic/MaybeImALion Maybe I'm A Lion]]'', by [[ Dullahan]]
* ''Recommended by'': Tropers/{{SlendermanBob}}, spacemonkey37, [=NeoShiraku=]
* ''Status'': Ongoing
* ''Synopsis'': [[LightNovel/KaraNoKyoukai Shirazumi Lio]] [[BlessedWithSuck becomes the ]] [[CursedWithAwesome carrier for the]] [[OhCrap Blacklight Virus]].
* Needs Tropes.
[=[[reviews:Maybe I'm a Lion]]=]

''[[ Apocalypse Now]]'', by Asmarath.
* ''Recommended by'': demonwarlord
* ''Status'': Ongoing; Last updated August 7, 2016
* ''Synopsis'': Crossover between Starwars and Prototype: During the old republic, a team of scientists discover an extinct civilization on an unknown world far out in the outer rim. By accident, the scientists unleash the greatest predator the galaxy has ever seen. Beware, because Alex Mercer is hungry.

''[[ Cancer]]'', by Jonas Grant
* ''Recommended by'': demonwarlord
* ''Status'': Dormant; Last updated June 8, 2016
* ''Synopsis'': a Crossover between TabletopGame/Warhammer40000 and Prototype that starts with a dockworker being told he is going to die of cancer in 6 months, something happens to him and he wakes up 7 months later with no idea what has happened in between then and now and in the middle of an invasion.
* The story is entirely told from his perspective and seems kind of stream of consciousness with some snark and a ''semi''-quickly advancing plot.

''[[ Consuming Direct Control]]'', by Hyliian
* ''Recommended by'': Xenone, demonwarlord, @/UncloudedTJ
* ''Status'': Discontinued
* Crossover with ''VideoGame/MassEffect2''
* ''Synopsis'': With nothing left for him in the galaxy but empty space and idle time, Alex Mercer finds himself recruited in Commander Shepard's fight against the Collectors.
* Apparently discontinued. It's ''vaguely'' possible the author might pick it back up again, but I wouldn't hold my breath. A good read nonetheless.
** For the record it's discontinued after the events of [=ME2=] so if you're afraid it was discontinued on a cliffhanger don't worry. It's self-contained in that game only.

''[[ Shards of Impossibility]]'', by [[ Cybertramon001]]
* ''Recommended by'': @/UncloudedTJ
* ''Status'': Ongoing; Last Updated April 2017.
* Crossover with ''Literature/{{Worm}}''
* ''Synopsis'': "In a world where the villains outnumber the heroes, where black and white becomes grey, there is a new force entering the game. A weapon more powerful than anyone can fully understand. And as the old saying goes, what doesn't kill you only makes you stronger. There will be changes in the world, and cities will shake. A Prototype/Worm crossover. Rated M for blood and swearing."
* ''Comments'': Alex and Dana Mercer, on the run from Blackwatch after the events of the [[VideoGame/{{Prototype}} first game]], find themselves literally thrown into the World of [[Literature/{{Worm}} Earth Bet]]. They try lying low in Brockton Bay, but as anyone that knows Alex, he never plays well with others. Features a heavily [[GrayAndGrayMorality gray cast]] that both series are known for and runs with it while having Alex be the truly unstoppable thing he is balanced by his sister's morality. ''And she wants him to be a super villain''.

''[[ A New Order]]'' by ''hob''
* Recommended by Tropers/{{Mr Terrorist}}
* Status: Ongoing
* Crossover with: VideoGame/ParasiteEve
* Summary: What would happen if the events of Prototype and Parasite Eve happened at the same time? Told from the point of view of Aya Brea and Alex Mercer.
* Comments: The fanfic so far has 3 chapters but it's very good. The crossover has the timeline of Parasite Eve adjusted where Aya is born in 1984 and is 25 years old in 2009 just like the original game which was set in 1997 and both the events of Prototype and Parasite Eve happens at the same time. What i find interesting of the fanfic is that Blackwatch thinks Eve and the Neo Mitochondria Creatures([=NMC=]s) are the results of the Blacklight virus when in truth they aren't. Furthermore, [[spoiler:Alex cannot consume [=NMC=]s as they can fight back when he tries to consume them and kill themselves before he has a chance to get anything from them.]] A highly recommended read.

[[ In this strange place]] by [[ DragonlordRynn]]
* Recommended by: Sophiebybophie

* Crossover with: Main/TheLordOfTheRings
* Synopsis: After he got blown up by the nuclear warhead, Alex suddenly finds himself captured by the most ugly things he's ever seen. Luckily, they were edible. Unluckily, they are Orcs and he clearly isn't in Manhattan anymore.
* Tags: Adventure, Supernatural, Friendship, Rated M for Language and Violence
* Comments: Loved this so much, Solid beginning, a little fast in the middle and nice ending.
