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.

Lamb: The Gospel According To Biff, Christ's Childhood Pal
- Recommended by Salnax1, Jordan, Narsil
- Synopsis: Satan, having recently lost in his rebellion, organizes his followers and plans the downfall of God's newest creation: Adam and Eve. Drama ensues.
- Comments: One of the better known fanfics out there, Paradise Lost is most notable for its style and characterization. Like The Aeneid, another influential fanfic, it is written as an epic poem. The descriptions of people, events, and places are excellent, though they are perhaps too descriptive. Satan, Adam, and Eve are remarkably fleshed out, and are given realistic motives and feelings.

Stories focused on the romantic relationships between the cast.
Lowlands of Scotland Series
- Recommended by Divra
- Synopsis: A self-insert fic, where the author takes a tour through the setting, guided by a childhood paragon of his.
- Comments: Also, like the previously mentioned Paradise Lost, written in poetry form. It does very little to expand upon the main characters, but fleshes out the setting in wonderful ways, which is something fans will appreciate. It also tucks in some pointed jabs at well-known haters and several Big Name Fans of the original appear as minor characters. Has contributed a lot to popular perception of the original. A bit wonky to read, because of the format, but well worth it.

- Recommended by: Nocturna
- Synopsis: The tale of Jacob, Leah, Rachel, and Dinah, set in the Scottish lowlands in 1791-1793 and 1810. The books are historically accurate and yet remarkably close to the original considering that fact.
- Pairings: Jacob/Leah, Jacob/Rachel, Dinah/Shechem
- Warnings: The fourth book contains non-graphic rape.
