''[[Fanfic/WeStandUnified We Stand Unified]]'' by [[ Fangtom]]
* Recommended by Song7
* ''Status'': Ongoing
* ''Synopsis'': Total war befalls the Koprulu sector as Amon, the Dark God, unleashes his hybrid horde and threatens to consume the galaxy unto oblivion. Khalis, a female high templar, will have her first taste of combat as the Protoss move to retake Aiur and into a conflict that will drag old heroes and new faces onto the map of battle.
* ''Comments'': A retelling of the [[ Legacy of the Void Campaign]] from the perspective of a [[TheTeam group of protoss]] as they endure [[WeAreStrugglingTogether cultural differences]] and face [[TheBusCameBack old characters from the first Starcraft game.]] Also sheds some light on what the [[WorldBuilding Terrans and Zerg were up to]] during [[TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt the End War.]]

''[[ The Brain Damage Trilogy]]'' by [[ Toasterman]]
* Recommended by @/USABobcat
* ''Status'': Complete
* ''Synopsis'': A rather long-running story set after the Brood War following the adventures and misadventures of a strange group of individuals including a Marine, Ghost, Reaper, Medic, Probe, Zealot and more as the series progresses. (Sic) (Taken from the Pit)
* ''Comments'': A long-running trilogy that [[CerebusSyndrome goes from lighthearted mocking of Starcraft fighting all the way to sinister plots and more.]] A RagtagBandOfMisfits form a mercenary band and kill a lot. Somehow manages to capture the feel of a world where a common Marine can die quite easily, but keeping the humor and the badassitude. Well worth a read, all the way to end of all three stories.

''[[ Flight to Freedom]]'' by Qwerty-Man
* Recommended by Tropers/HappyMan, @/USABobcat
* ''Status'': Dead
* ''Synopsis'': Post-Wings of Liberty. Kerrigan struggles to cope with her situation while the heroes from Starcraft gather to face the looming danger ahead.
* ''Comments'': Despite this story is doomed to be {{Jossed}} once Heart of The Swarm comes out, it's something you must read if you love Starcraft. Absolutely brilliant and enthralling. It has ''loads'' of CharacterDevelopment as well as a good bunch of well-written action scenes. The characters feel more real and complex than in the game. The interaction between the characters is, without any doubt, its strongest point, and what makes this story worthy of reading.

''[[ Parallax]]'' by mirari1
* Recommended by {{Tropers/Kadael}}
* ''Status'': Dead
* ''Synopsis'': During the "Supernova" mission of the Liberty campaign, the pilots of a terran banshee and Tal'darim phoenix crash-land on Typhon IX. Communications are down, their ships are in bad shape, and they don't feel inclined to trust each other.
* ''Comments'': Although only the second chapter is up, it looks excellent so far. The characters are interesting, the prose and pacing fit with the dramatic-yet-humorous tone of the story, and the situation is something that certainly could happen during that mission.

''[[ A Hydralisk Named Bane, The Bane Series]]'' By Deadfast
* Recommended by Yellow 13
* ''Status'': Dead
* ''Synopsis'': A hydralisk with human level intelligence. Instead of being an evil, out of control monster, this Hydralisk is good and fights with his human friends.
* ''Comments'': Slow updates, but each one is WELL worth the wait.
** {{Tropers/Ucal}}: If you're like me, you read this premise and thought it was stupid. Well, it is, but the author manages to make it acceptable with some turns on the premise that make it interesting, and not the 9 kinds of stupid I was expecting.

''[[ Aftermath and Revelations]]'' by Ragnarok666
* Recommended by DARTHYAM
* ''Status'': Dead
* ''Synopsis'': Kerrigan tries to find redemption for her sins, while Raynor and the others try to comprehend what is to come...
* ''Comments'': Is weak in some areas it is pretty good overall. Kerrigan's revelation that she remembers every last one of her atrocities is genuinely heartbreaking, and the scene where she comes face to face with Artanis is also pretty intense. The author makes call outs to the Dark Templar Trilogy, and we get a glimpse of Duran and The Dark Voice.

''[[ Her Body's Plaything]]'' by BlackHole1
* Recommended by Hello101, [=WAEGirl=]
* ''Status'': Complete
* ''Synopsis'': The Artifact has fired and the Queen of Blades has been defeated. The war, however, is far from over. A 'Novelization' of Heart of the Swarm. At least, what the author imagined it as (the story was finished before HoTS was released).
* ''Comments'': A rather good read. Kerrigan is a far more TheAtoner for what she did as the Queen of Blades than in canon, and the Zerg are also treated in a similar way, with several OCs also showing up (And one of Kerrigan's main crew a DeadpanSnarker Zerg Space Marine.)

''[[ Primal]]'' by Drich ([[ comment thread here]])
* Recommended by throwaawy, [=WAEGirl=]
* ''Status'': Ongoing
* ''Synopsis'': I abhor my life. I detest my life. I loathe my life.\\
If I could express the sheer disdain I felt at this moment, this entire planet would have burned, flash fried right down to the core.\\
But above all else, I despise you, ROB.\\
I mean, seriously, fucking Zerus? Why?\\
Why me?
* ''Comments'': A self-insert prequel to the franchise. Drich is a Primal Zerg in a Zerg-eat-Zerg world of Zerus. Join Drich as Drich consumes, adapts, consumes some more, adapts some more, and... oshi- is that the Overmind forming? Damn you Random Omnipotent Being.

''[[ StarCrafts]]'' by [[ CarbotAnimations]]
* Recommended by @/{{Nightelf37}}
* ''Status'': Ongoing
* A series of funny and cute one-shot short animations featuring our favorite [=StarCraft=] units.

''[[ When One Domino Falls]]'' by warchief
* Recommended by Appletank
* ''Status'': Ongoing
* ''Synopsis'': All it takes to change history is one thing to fall differently. So what would happen if the battle of New Gettysburg played out differently? What if the Commander was wary enough to buy some time? Will follow the story of Starcraft from New Gettysburg right through to SC2 and beyond.
* ''Comments'': Long story short, the Magistrate gets a mysterious warning about all the bad shit that would go down if he let Mengsk abandon Kerrigan. Butterflies explode. In other news, the characters are all well crafted, and the interactions are top notch. Battles feel sufficiently dangerous and gripping, and the reveal of how Magistrate gets the warning is pretty good. Note: This was written before Legacy, so the how and why of things are slightly differently interpreted, but it is frankly a minor quibble.

[[WMG:[[{{Crossover}} Crossover Fics]]]]

''[[ Starcraft AU: Tiberium Galaxy]]'' by [[ avatar-of-kane]]
* Recommended by @/SteelDusk
* ''Synopsis'': A VideoGame/StarCraft[=/=]VideoGame/CommandAndConquerTiberianSeries crossover alternate universe fanfic set after the events of ''Tiberian Twilight'' and during the events of ''VideoGame/StarcraftII''.
* ''Comments'': This fanfic mainly focuses on Kane after his ascension, finding himself in a strange new world and recreates the Brotherhood of Nod while at it. Meanwhile, the Terran Dominion and the Protoss are baffled by the discovery of mysterious green crystals, which would attract some of Kane's old enemies...Expect lots of action! This fanfic also contains Unit Profiles and 'Unit Versus' sections which compares C&C units to Starcraft units and which one of them will be more likely to win in a fight.

''Fanfic/TheSwarmOfWar'' by [[ VexMaster]]
* Recommended by: DaLintyMan, Tropers/ChaosTheVoid, Omeganian.
* ''Status'': Ongoing
* Synopsis: This is one of those stories that people credit for their inspiration. The Swarm of War is based on the reincarnation of a random nerd, steeped in his favorite franchises, into a Zerg Larva after being hit by a car. After a short stay on Aiur, James is sent to a different universe due to the influence of the Xel'Naga Artifact firing. But he doesn't make it. Instead, his mind forms the basis for a new Overmind, described as "The last remaining humanity of James Malcolm Raynor merged with the tiny bits of the Xel'Naga pulse energy and then liberally sprinkled with the genetic memories of the Zerg."
* Comments: Liberal amounts of grimdark abound, and massive battles are waged.
** There is a decent amount of character development, with most of the story so far written from a First Person point of view of the Overmind. Watch as the Swarm evolves to counter its new threats, and shows the wars they go through.
*** The first arc takes place on a cut-off planet, with a four sided war.
*** The second arc is set after the events of Space Marine and before the events of Dawn of War. Both Titus and Cyrus play major parts.
*** This would probably count as a Dark Fic, as the seeming protagonist lost any morals he once had.

''Fanfic/CyclesUponCycles'' by [[ The Incredible Muffin]]
* Recommended by Tallens, [=WAEGirl=]
* ''Status'': Ongoing
* Synopsis: ''VideoGame/StarCraft''/''Franchise/MassEffect''. Right after they defeat Amon, Tassadar warns the three Korpulu races of a new threat on the horizon. Putting aside their differences (mostly) they start to rebuild and prepare for this new threat, which takes an unexpected turn when a strange device is discovered in a remote systemů
* Comments: This one has some different takes the usual StationsOfTheCanon, such as the first contact with the ME side being with the Quarians, rather than the Turians, who are then attacked by Batarian pirates. The war with the Turians, and Council at large, doesn't happen for some time after that. The humans from the ME 'verse are all adapted into SC-style units, Shepard being a Spectre (the Ghost variant), Ashley a marine, Vega a Marauder, Zaeed a Firebat and Grunt a [[ItMakesSenseInContext Zerg]]. And the ''Normandy'' is a Battlecruiser variant with a cloaking device.
** Overall, characters are well-written and interact believably with each other, though there are chapters which seem to be entirely made up of characters conversing. It may seem to be skewed heavily in favor of the SC side, but it does make clear that if they went into a prolonged war the Koprulu races would eventually be at a disadvantage due to fewer numbers and because the Turians would learn their tactics.
*** Updating on a fairly regular basis, with large and developed chapters each time, seeming to indicate the author has the story planned out pretty well, if not already written completely.
