Synopsis: A currently 7-part series mostly about Vicky, Chip Skylark, Tootie, Norm and Des(OC). After, you are finished reading the series, you should check out her deviantART (which contains spoilers for what will happen to the characters in the series' Alternate Universe, like whether they will have kids and what the kids will be named, plot twists etc.) Some of her drawings are of things further along on the Alternative Universe's Timeline than her stories are.
Synopsis: Set after the Wishology trilogy, the stories work off the premises that someone didn't forget when Jorgen wiped everyone's memories afterwards. While there is some shipping, the bigger focus is the friendship between Timmy, AJ, and Chester and the rather impressive collection of enemies that still want revenge. Saving the world is easier with friends.
Comments: It is always nice to find a story that ends up not turning the other girl into a psycho. Just because this writer supports Trixie as Timmy's girlfriend does not mean that Tootie is turned into a crazed stalker without any redeeming qualities. Both girls are treated like human beings: with good and bad traits. In the writer's own words, they have no interest in being involved in "shipping wars." Later entries start becoming crossovers with other shows, like Jimmy Neutron, Danny Phantom, Planet Sheen, and Phineas and Ferb.
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.True Heroes:Year One, Year Two by Michael JJ (AU)

Pairing(s): Timmy/Trixie, AJ/Veronica
Synopsis: An Alternate Universe Fic showing what the world of FOP would be like if everyone had their superhero identities from the episode The Big Superhero Wish. Highly recommended.
Comments: It is quite a lengthy read, and there was definitely a lot of thought put into it. Timmy is a lot less of a Jerkass than he has been recently on the show. Also, crossovers with other Hero-fied Nick shows began cropping up by the end of Year One, such as the Guys in White, the Skyway Patrol, and the Swollen Eyeball Network. Once again, highly recommended.
I've only read a few chapters, so it may be too early to judge, but this troper thought the work was a little weak in the dialogue department. In addition, many of the characters were Not as You Know Them. Still, the concept is kinda neat, and the fight scenes are rather well done. I only hope that it gets better from this point.
Not as You Know Them is the extreme end of OOC, when a large number of characters are acting this way. Mind you, Fairly OddParents isn't exactly known for characterization, so this may or may not be a good thing.
Year Two hasn't been updated for two years as of February 2012. Dead Fic.
Synopsis: The compelling tale of Norm the Genie, who's tragic life of servitude turned him resentful and bitter. One-shot. Dark Fic.
Comments: It is very believable in explaining it, if it a bit vague. It deals with the original series' Moral Dissonance, explaining why it is wrong for him to be treated like that without going all black-and-white. Norm's Story has a poetic, compelling, sad, bitter tone to it and fits the character well enough that I can picture him actually thinking like that. Her interpretation of Norm shows him as a justified version of The Resenter. Oscena manages to avoid buying Norm any leather pants. She acknowledges that he is a cruel jerk even though/if he's not evil. Themes from Norm's Story will crop up in Wishes so you should read it before you read Wishes.
Synopsis: Dark Fic, angst, and character death. Timmy acknowledges Cosmo's treatment of Wanda and tries to take care of her, and then Wanda realizes how much she depends on her godson. Sad family fic.
Comments: Powerful piece that actually acknowledges the deterioration of Cosmo's characterization while Butch Hartman focused on Danny Phantom. It ages Timmy believably, and the dynamic between Timmy and Wanda is sad and powerful all at once. Cosmo's random actions in the opening of the story reflect the arbitrary decline of the show, while the ending shows the consequences of what could have happened.
Synopsis: The memories that come back to us in life are never the ones we want to remember.
Comments: A darker look into the future that starts out as being told by an older Timmy... but takes a much different turn later on, and does end on a hopeful note. Also has a suprising cameo from another Nickelodeon series...
Synopsis: Originally a oneshot. Later got expanded with an alternate ending. Focusses on how Cosmo and Wanda move on after Timmy reaches adulthood and his fairies have to leave him.
Comments: first, keep in mind this fic was written before the character Poof was introduced in the series. This story perfectly shows how Cosmo and Wanda feel about having to say goodbye to Timmy and make plans for their future.

Pairing(s): Timmy/Trixie, Tootie/OC, Chester/OC
Synopsis: Timmy loves Trixie, and deep in her heart Trixie loves Timmy. But outside forces prevent them from being together, including Trixie's disapproving mother and a sinister villain hiding in the shadows.
Comments: Probably the best Timmy/Trixie fic on the web. Expect references to Danny Phantom and a few other properties. There are some dark moments, but overall very nice. Recently been revamped into The Definitive Edition, pairing Timmy with one of the newer characters, Molly.
Synopsis: Tootie feels she can never win Timmy's affections when she sees his display of love for Trixie. But when the two girls encounter each other at the mall, Trixie offers to help Tootie win the boy's love.
Comments: This troper likes that someone is actually able to write Timmy/Tootie without invoking Die for Our Ship, even if the grammar and spelling are weak in places.
Comments: Admittedly, the story suffers some grammar mishaps on account of English not being the author's first language (click here to read his Spanish version), but fanfics about Fan-Preferred Couple Remy/Trixie are pretty hard to come by, and this one is definitely sweet.
Synopsis: Timmy accidentally discovers that Trixie leads a miserable life, constantly repressed by her mother. He decides to lend her Cosmo and Wanda for a while in hopes that they can help her. Unfortunately, Crocker hatches a plan soon after.
Comments: An early story that actually takes the time to explore Trixie's personality, something you don't see much of. Very well written.
Pairings: Surprise pairings, all involving at least one OC
Synopsis: This is a story set ten years into the future after Jorgen takes possession of Norm's lamp, when the fairy tosses out the lamp and it ends up back on earth. The lamp is discovered by a lonely girl named Amanda, who frees Norm by accident. When Norm meets his young new master and finds that she's unlike any other he's ever had, he's ultimately faced with a decision that could mean his freedom or her happiness. Read after reading Norm's Story.
Comments: The romance is hinted at well and almost every reviewer has made a comment about it in their reviews. The author is good at the writing principle called show, not tell. The author can switch moods easily without giving you bad Mood Whiplash. Both the angst and the funny aspects are well-written. The characters are portrayed more realistically than anyone ever is on the original show and In Character. It has some minor spelling errors but they don't detract from the story much and the author is really polite when you ask her to correct them. Norm is so IC that the story's FIRST reviewer called her characterization of him "Best Norm I've seen on this whole site". There is also lots of good Character Development of Norm and Amanda. This story has either created some new tropes or twisted some already existing tropes in ways that I've never seen before. The author balances Norm's cynicism with Amanda's idealism well, placing the fanfic somewhere on the middle of Sliding Scale of Idealism vs. Cynicism.
Synopsis: Timmy accidentally wishes that Trixie had never grown up hiding her tomboyish nature in order to be popular. He finds himself in a new reality wherein they have been friends since they were little kids, and are currently dating. Paralysed by the ramifications of what he's just done, Timmy tries this reality out.
Comments: Currently at part 3. Despite some occasional spelling and grammar mistakes, does a very good job of capturing the series humour (as well as adding some substantially more risque jokes), with a very good examination of the For Want of a Nail of changing a persons entire life, as well as the clashing emotions of happinees and love. Despite being on deviantART, is a purely text based fanfic.
Synopsis: Cosmo and Wanda, thanks to Timmy's wish, are finally able to have a child. Wanda (who gets pregnant first due to fairy genealogy) questions Cosmo's rude remarks and begins doubting his love for her. In addition, the couple faces emotional drama over the prospect of Wanda potentially dying from her portion of the pregnancy.
Comments: This fic is absolutely outstanding. Both Cosmo and Wanda are in character, quirks and all. The various explanations (e.g, why Cosmo says mean things to Wanda, the process of fairy pregnancies) is pure genius, and fits well into cannon. May be a little risque for a T rating (sex and nudity are present, though it is rather subdued.) It gets real emotional in the second half, but the ending is satisfying and leaves a feeling of contentment.
"Synopsis": Tootie finds a magical genie who wants to help woo her love of her life, Timmy! Will Tootie succeed, or will this whole thing turn around, bite Timmy in the butt, and turns into a life threatning situation like it normally does. Read and find out. :
Comments": Adorable. Absolutely adorable and I think this is one of the fluffiest, not to mention funniest, yet not out of character Timmy/Tootie fics out there. Seriously, it's a must read.
Synopsis: "This is the last straw!" he shouted, flinging the case file at the wall. Papers, newspaper clippings, and blurry photos flew everywhere. Dib huddled on the floor, pulling his trench coat tightly around him. The last straw for what? He didn't know. But it was too much!
