Fanfic Recs: Sliders
Mr. Mallory, this Earth is unconquerable proof that the remaining 10% is worth Sliding for:

These are recommendations made by Tropers for Sliders, all of which have been signed. After a few samples, you will be able to judge whether you might be interested in the 'fic, based on who recommended it. No-name recommendations will be zapped. Nobody would back up the rec. Discussion of the recommendation is welcome on the discussion page. As such discussion is important, do remember to add the discussion page to the watchlist, if need be.

Do warn when a fanfic may head into 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.

Slide Effects, by ireactions, based on a plot by series co-creator Tracy Tormé
Recommended by kitkatness

Synopsis: Quinn Mallory wakes up to find himself home — in fact, it's like he never left and time has been rewound to the Pilot. It's 1995: Wade is working at Doppler Computers, Professor Arturo is teaching, Rembrandt is a musician and only Quinn remembers sliding. Haunted by five years of traumatic memories, Quinn begins to wonder if he's losing his mind or if something else has gone terribly wrong...

Comments: Sliders is a show that lost 75% of the cast, most of them suffering horrible deaths. It is a depressing series in the end, and "Slide Effects" seeks to turn that around. In an interview on Earthprime.com, Tormé talked about the AuthorsSavingThrow he would use to repair his series. This fanfic is Tormé's idea expanded into a 46 page script. There are lots of post-"Seer" stories, but this one's different: it's not about resolving unfinished plots or undoing the deaths. It's about returning to the Season 1/2 characters on page one and having them confront the last three seasons. The story pulls off the neat trick of undoing the latter years while still leaving emotional fallout.

    • Synopsis: A full Season Six and Season 7. This group of stories reunite Rembrandt with the Professor after the latter was left behind in "Post Traumatic Slide" along with that alternate Earth's Quinn and Wade. Together they pick up Maggie, Mallory and Diana and seek to separate Mallory again while continuing on to new adventures. The series stays true to the original characterizations while introducing new dynamics with the new Wade and Quinn. Thought out and self consistent this series is a great read for fans of the first two seasons of the show.

    Misc.
    Tough to categorize.

    14 Years of Sliders, a parodic Twitter feed
    Recommended by Mag Flare

    Synopsis: In another universe, on another Earth very much like our own, Sliders was a smash hit TV series that ran for fourteen years. This Twitter feed reveals plot summaries of these unknown episodes, in the same "A-plot; B-plot" format used by the earlier TNG Season 8.
