Authors and Websites

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.

Maternal Operations Machine by Kirmon64

My First Duty by Night N. Gail
  • Recommended by Blazichu
  • Synopsis: A oneshot from Clank's point of view, reflecting on his partnership-turned-friendship with Ratchet. There are major spoilers for the series as a whole, but especially A Crack in Time.

Ratchet & Clank Future II: In Search of Clank by Stephan Stryker
  • Recommended by Blazichu
  • Synopsis: An Alternate Universe Fic branching off from Tools of Destruction, so it's parallel to Quest For Booty and A Crack in Time. It's very long and, thus far, incomplete, but well worth the read.

Bad Alert The Extreme by Gastrodon Amy

Supermarket Chaos by Purple Armadillo
  • Recommended by Cybertoy 0
  • Synopsis: Dr. Nefarious runs out of creamer, and there's no way he'll take his coffee black. But it's not as if he can just walk into the supermarket to buy more, right?
  • Comments: A hilarious 'just-for-fun' fic that manages to get the characterizations of the characters perfect.

Ailuraphobia by divisionten
  • Recommended by Bookworm Gal
  • Synopsis: Clank hadn't been bornů actually, he had been born yesterday. He probably should fill his data files on Lombaxes if he were to be traveling with one.
  • Comments: Snippets set over the course of the first game from Clank's point of view. Very entertaining.

Carpe Diem by The Authoress Complex
  • Recommended by The Logical Thinker
  • "Synopsis": Ratchet is suicidal. Clank is learning to live. And a vicious cycle has begun. A Ratchet and Clank Dramatization, with spoilers for future games, added dialogue and changes to the script. No pairings.
This Fanfic just feels like a novel, with changes to the original games that fit with the characters. A definite must-read!

Shipping Fics
Stories focused on the romantic relationships between the cast.

Ratchet and Clank: All For You by Stohne Rohse
  • Recommended by Orvus Corvus
  • Synopsis: Three weeks after Ratchet, Clank, and Nefarious' journey on Magnus, Lawrence has noticed something strange with Nefarious. The usually loud, angry doctor hasn't come out of his room since they landed. At a complete loss, Lawrence has no one to turn to but the doctor's old teammates. Will they hinder more than help? The one Lawrence is most worried about is Qwark...
A cute little shipping fic I found that's not quite done yet, but I have a feeling that the next time Qwark comes around, they'll finally realize that they don't hate each other as much as they thought.

Fics with Original Characters
Stories focused on an adventure, usually with a character who is not part of the original story.
