Fanfic Recs: Sweeney Todd
Proof that the remaining 10% is worth dying for here:

These are recommendations made by tropers for Sweeney Todd fan fics, all of which have to be signed to stay on the page. Feel free to add a fanfic of your own to the list, but remember to use the template found here.

Do warn when a fanfic may head into sexually explicit or non-canon territory. Some people just don't like it, and as we all know, shipping is Serious Business. You can also add to the current recommendations if you want. Refrain from posting Conversation In The Main Page though; that goes in the discussion page.
