[[ Lady Tessers's TheBigO fics]];
* Recommended by Ranchoth
* Lady Tesser's works have a great "feel" about them. ''[[ Mr and Mrs Smith]]'' (which, er, actually starts with a story called ''The Blossoming Rose'') in particular --- it's not that they strictly follow originalflavor, or even that they deviate from it; it's that they seem to ''develop'' from a canon-style setting in what seems like a organic fashion, but still keep enough of a connection to the roots of the show to make it all come together comfortably. I wouldn't call it a "shipping" series, per se -- although if it's not, it's dang close to it, and there's plenty of WAFF to go around, but it's really not a "romance" series. Plus, there's some subtle traces of megacrossover, but essentially just as backstory (specifics might be too much of a spoiler), and delightfully well handled.

[[ 7 Moondance's Fanfiction]] (In particular ''[[ Act 27: Roger the Amnesiac]]'', ''[[ Act 28:Transplants]]'', ''[[ Act 29: R Smith Take Three]]'' and ''[[ Act 30: Masquerade]]'')
* Recommended by Tropers/{{Timmah}}
* 7Moondance's work is a bit of a mixed bag, with of his (her?) earliest stories being limp one-off jokes at best. However, the aforementioned attempts to pen a third season feel quite loyal to the parent material in both tone and characterization. So far The consistency of character voice and imaginative attempts to mix both the MindScrew finale of the series with basic elements of a typical episode of ''Big O'' quite delightful. I almost wish this could be used to produce an OVA of the third season: there's quite a lot going on here and its quite worth the while. I truly wish the 7Moondance had continued; these stories have the momentum and gut of the orignal source, making them top-grade fanfiction.

[[ Galaxy1001D's Fanfiction]]
* Recommended by Aken Jizo
* Galaxy1001D's has both their own spin on a possible third season and several one-shots that are all fairly enjoyable at worst. All of their Big O works feel true to the source material while still doing their own thing, capturing the characters and MindScrew quite nicely. Fair warning, though: Galaxy1001D is a Roger/Dorothy shipper, and the aforementioned third season does touch on [[spoiler: CosmicHorrorStory]] elements, so if those aren't your thing, you should probably move along. Otherwise, Galaxy1001D is an excellent author who writes excellent stories, and I highly recommend giving them a read.
