None yet.

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.

Preventive Measures by Mooncactus
  • Recommended by Juggling Goth
  • Status: Complete
  • Pairings: Brief background Tanith/Ghastly
  • Warnings: Character death, suicide, assisted suicide
  • Synopsis: Valkyrie decides to make sure she never becomes Darquesse. Skulduggery helps. Heartbreaking, and entirely plausible. (Not compliant with Kingdom of the Wicked.)

Stories focused on the romantic relationships between the cast.

The Ten Things on Billy Ray's To Do List by DarkFlameOfTheMonkey
  • Recommended by Kaza 999
  • Status: Complete
  • Pairings: Billy-Ray Sanguine x Tanith Low
  • Warnings: Some mentions of sex and violence, but pretty tame.
  • Synopsis: A one-shot that explores the relationship between Billy-Ray Sanguine and Remnant-infested Tanith Low. Funny, surprisingly sweet, and just a bit nightmarish.

Poppling by Mademise Morte
  • Recommended by Lyricality
  • Status: Complete
  • Pairings: Anyone the author can imagine, and I mean anyone quite literally.
  • Warnings: Some mentions of sex.
  • Synopsis: A calendar of snippets, updated daily as of January 1, 2011, featuring crack pairings. Funny at times, sweet at others, and always slightly odd.

An Unexpected Moment by Kribu
  • Recommended by Kaza 999
  • Status: Complete
  • Pairings: Vile/Darquesse. Yes, really.
  • Warnings: Just shy of explicit (the author actually rates it M). Spoilers for Death Bringer.
  • Synopsis*: Darquesse and Lord Vile acting independently of their alter egos, and what happens afterwords. Oneshot.
