[[WMG: Authors, and Websites]]

[[ P.I.D]]
* Recommended by sardns
* P.I.D is definitely one of the best authors when it comes to ''Disney/{{Tangled}}'' fan fiction. They only write one shots, and all of them are worth a read. All characters are portrayed perfectly, and the situations in which they are written in are very entertaining. Pretty much exclusively of the romance/humor/heartwarming genre.

[[ thefireplanet]]
* Recommended by SMARTALIENQT
* They are brilliant at character portrayal. They balance motivations, personalities, and relationships perfectly, and are just a good writer in general, with dynamic and enthralling storylines, even if it's just a one shot.

[[ Airplane]]
* Recommended by SMARTALIENQT
* Definitely one of, if not the most, popular Tangled authors. His stories "What You Don't Know" and "Trust Me" have racked up hundreds of reviews, and for very good reason: they are fantastic. His character's personalities are spot-on, his development is wonderful, his pacing is perfect, and his writing itself is incredible.

[[ bStormhands]]
* Recommended by AlyssaMacki
* He writes very good Tangled stories. His 'Rapunzel Goes Home extended edition" is by far one of the greatest stories I've read Period, and his "Abusing Hair Power" was so chillingly cruel I was glad for the ending. All of his are worth a read, they're just amazing.

[[ Beta-Gyre]]
* Recommended by WolframAndHart
* She writes some very well thought out AU fics. She has a real talent for taking the light Disney fun and making a dark but believable story out of it. "Bad Influence" is probably her best.

[[WMG: [[GenFic 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.''

[[ The Meaning of 'Mother']] By [[ st.jimmy.987]]
* Recommended by Tropers/Bee123
* ''Status'': Complete
* ''Synopsis'': “There were many times Gothel had felt like giving up.“ Being a mother is hard but it is worth it.
