Proof that the remaining 10% is worth dying for here:
These are recommendations made by Tropers for Fan Fics, all of which have been signed. After a few samples, you will be able to judge whether you might be interested in the 'fic, based on who recommended it. No-name recommendations will be zapped. Nobody would back up the rec. Discussion of the recommendation is welcome on the discussion page. As such discussion is important, do remember to add the discussion page to the watchlist, if need be.
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.
Synopsis: Edmund, now 17 and King of Narnia is haunted by the ghost of Jadis and is forced to play a series of games for his soul. The trouble is neither of them are sure exactly what the stakes are, or which part of the game is the one that matters.
Synopsis: Once a King or Queen in Narnia, always a King or Queen in Narnia. Anxious to fit in, Susan Pevensie suppresses her memories of Narnia as she grows older, even after the train crash that leaves her alone in the world. Then a Christmas present and a dream bring renewed meaning to her shattered life. A moving fic which provides a less, well, horrific response to Neil Gaiman's "The Problem of Susan".
Synopsis: "Susan, the sea and all the ups and downs of a life lived twice." Another (of course) Susan post-Last Battle fic, very much in the same vein as "The Queen's Return," but vividly, gorgeously its own piece.
Synopsis: (from FFN) In the summer of the Dawn Treader, Aslan tries to get Peter's attention. But, it's all Greek to Peter as he studies with Professor Kirke and meets unusual people who seem vaguely familiar. Part 1 of The Stone Gryphon series.
Synopsis: An ongoing series, but each story is complete and there are no cliffhangers. Movie-canon. The series offers an amazing look at what it would mean to have the memories of feudal warrior-kings and -queens, but inside a young body in mid-20th Century England.
Synopsis: Back in England Susan grows up being reasonable rather than silly. But the course of history has already shifted and the Pevensie children are doomed to their train wreck. Aslan grants Susan a second chance at the life she never had in Narnia.
Synopsis: Oneshot, another way of answering "The Problem of Susan". Or, in the author's words: "[a]n attempt to reconcile movie canon with book canon, and also to clear up a few distressing aspects of the latter." Highly recommended.
Synopsis: Lucy just wants to break the wall that was built between her and her brother. Ed/Lu. Movie version. No flames.
Comments: Even for the people who can't usually stand this kind of fiction, this will draw anyone right in. This tale does not only make the couple plausible, but downright probable. Granted a topic like incest is easy to butcher and sounds forced, especially in a fandom like Chronicles Of Narnia, but this story flows naturally and flawlessly. It's a dark, captivating story and the characters and emotions are portrayed wonderfully.
Synopsis: Bookverse. A slashy version of The Voyage of the Dawn Treader. This is hands down the best Edmund/Caspian fic I've read, as it delves in detail into the emotions and convictions of the characters, emphasizing their difficulty to communicate. It is very in-character, and the author isn't afraid to show their internal conflicts rather than injecting external angst. The emphasis on age difference may not appeal to all. Long.
Synopsis: Takes place approximately five to six years after The Horse and His Boy. Cor’s mission is to explore Archenland (in disguise) and learn about his people. Aravis's mission is to find him a suitable bride. Their only obstacles? Each other. And, of course, the occasional rogue dragon. Political intrigue, adventure, and hilarity ensue.
Comments: It’s quite long (56 chapters/170,000+ words at the time of this rec) and wracked with oft-fluffy sexual tension, of both the belligerent and unresolved kind. The external drama caused by political intrigue and mysterious characters is well-balanced with the internal conflict of the shipping. By far the most well-thought-out fic for this pairing I’ve ever seen, going well beyond the usual Slap-Slap-KissLove Epiphany oneshots this pairing usually attracts and into the realm of serious worldbuilding and Character Development.
Synopsis: When he was a boy, he dreamed of paved streets and electric lights. When he was a young man he dreamed of bats and vengeance. And when he was an old man, he dreamed of apple trees and lions. Batman crossover.
