In the Space Battles Creative Forums, Zero no Tsukaima story threads are spawned on a regular basis as the Zero no Tsukaima Story Ideas and Snippets threads are rapidly filled up and new threads are created regularly. Threads contain brief snippets and ideas on Zero no Tsukaima fanfiction and story snippets are indexed in the The Index. The Space Battles Creative forums also has a Zero no TsukaimaBack to the Basics(link is current at time of writing) Thread to help clarify any misconceptions about the Zero no Tsukaima canon(Note:by 'any' I mean A LOT). Contains the largest collection of summons, reverse summons, bad ends and any other imaginable scenario that has zero chance of being written outside of Space Battles. May be hard to navigate due to sheer number of threads (#43 ) at the time of writing. A listing of longer Spacebattles stories may also be found (here ).
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.Stupid Devil Dog by The Real Lee is here

Synopsis: Louise summons Saito Hiraga, but the writer has almost completely changed who Saito was.
Synopsis: Hiraga Saito is a fleshed out character. Louise Françoise isn't happily whipping people. The summoning ritual does precisely what it says on the tin, summoning creature to be branded and then enslaved by the influence of the mark. There is nothing happy about it. Familiar of Zero, with 'For The Laughs' removed. How bleak are things, really?
Synopsis: Japanese-American and US army ranger Alexander Tsougi always considered himself to be a normal military grunt. That is until he teleports through a magic portal into the world of Zero no tsukaima. WARNING: the following story gets really epic by chapter 3.
Synopsis: Reconquista is defeated, but dark forces and darker ambitions threaten to plunge Halkeginia into war. Into this morass is plunged a wanderer from a distant land, summoned as a familiar by a certain young half-Elf.
Overlord Zaru: Relatively young and new, but shows promise thus far. A new faction comes into play and will be interesting to follow through. And it seems that Tiffa will get some spotlight alongside our heroes Saito and Louise.
Synopsis: The US Government sends a Navy SEAL into a newly discovered world to recover lost equipment and weapons, and to explore this new world. This is going to be one of the most interesting missions for Commander Riptide, Sniper for SEAL Team 10.
eduardogranja: Must say it feels good to see the reaction of Halkegenians to a true military force from Earth, and that was enough to get me hooked in the story. As of now, the story is on the higher end of the epic scale.
Synopsis: Louise still summons Saito, but the world he comes from is different. He can't cast magic, but he knows enough about it to give Louise a little help, and he has some other skills too. Most importantly, it's primarily Saito as a Guile Hero instead of relying on brute force. Mind games are to be expected.
Synopsis: Shirou Emiya (now in his mid-twenties) has dealt with human summoning, magical battles, and saving the world. Now he is brought into a world where magic equates to nobility. The Zero has just summoned a Hero. Has its own Trope Page.
Synopsis: The Spring-Time Familiar Summoning Ritual summons the being most suitable for the mage. A soul of fire summons forth a soul of fire. The right spark can cause anything to burn. Fate/Zero Rider
Synopsis: The Gandalfr is the Shield of God, meant to protect their summoner from harm. Through faith and blade, here was a man that protected the weak from all that would do them harm, and his life ended with no regrets. Though Louise did not mean to summon a Guardian Knight, there were few greater she could have asked for.
Synopsis: "A girl cries out for Salvation - and receives a Miracle." Like all things, it begins with a wish. One wish, for a powerful, strong familiar. One wish, to be a hero that saves everyone. One wish, to finally live free. One wish, to finally meet again after so long apart. One wish, to be forgiven for the sin of betrayal. One wish, and it changes the world. (Quasi-sequel to Fate Revenant Sword, Normal End)
Synopsis: In a society where magic is the proof of nobility, Louise Françoise Le Blanc de La Vallière, has never managed to cast a single spell properly. Scorned by her classmates as "the Zero" for her utter incompetence, the Familiar Summoning Ritual is her last chance to prove herself worthy of a title. But imagine her surprise when she summons someone as inextricably linked to the void as she, a young girl with a need to prove herself nearly as large as hers.
Synopsis: In a world where magic is the proof of nobility, Louise Françoise Le Blanc de La Vallière is an outcast, bearing the stigma of failure, as she has never been able to use the simplest of spells. Scorned by society as "the Zero," a woeful all-but-commoner with pretensions to the high nobility, the Springtime Summoning Rite is her last chance to prove otherwise. To everyone's surprise, she summons something - but when millennia long traditions hold that the summoned being reflects the caster's ability as a mage, what does it mean that her familiar is blind?
Synopsis: A different take on the usual 'replace Saito with X' stories that dominate the ZnT crossover archives. Rather than summon a single familiar, Louise summons the four Averrunci, (starting from Fate to Sextum).
Synopsis: A completely new twist on the "Louise summons X instead of Saito" plot occurs when Louise summons Evangeline as her familiar only to be caught up in the snap-back on the Infernus Scholasticus. Look out Mahora, class 2-A has a new student!
Synopsis: Darkness brings more darkness. She was a failure of a mage, incapable of casting even the simplest spells. So of course, she had to go ahead and summon the single most talented mage of his generation as a familiar.
Status: 26 chapters, ongoing. Chapters 21-25 are indexed here
Synopsis: Louise summons Rumia, Youkai of Darkness. She's good at danmaku, but she's also lazy, easily distracted, and mainly sees other humans as a food source. But with her influence, Louise becomes much darker, tackling her problems with violence, swordplay, and explosions.
Synopsis: Familiar spirits are the mark of those born with magic, their proof of nobility. To partake in their summoning, the most sacred act of all. Come, oh beautiful, sacred, strong familiar spirit, and grant us our heart's desire...
Synopsis: Ado Edem, ether liner and wielder of the Slash Emperor, is summoned from the shattered planet of Gaia by Louise. The first thing he has to say? "What a... beautiful sky..." A series of snippets and omakes by Erlkonig of the Beast's Lair forums.
Comments: Notable for being one of the few fanfictions of Angel Notes that I've been able to find. There isn't very much of it, but it's fantastic while it lasts.
Synopsis: Near the end of his life, Ezio Auditore, once Mentor of the Assassins, decides to serve his order with his dying breath by retrieving an ancient artifact. To his surprise, it whisks him away to a strange country of magic, where old eagles fly again...
Synopsis: A US Ranger team finds themselves trapped in a GLA stronghold after destroying their target. A lucky green portal saves them from being roasted by the GLA after being discovered but transports them to a world of a messed-up fairy tale where magic exists. See how soldiers trained by a free-world nation cope against tyrannical rulers and fight for the freedom of the oppressed.
Synopsis: Instead of going the same route as every single ZnT fic ever and having her summon yet another character from across the multiverse, Earthscorpion has her attempt the Familiar summoning ... and fail. Not just fail, but fail so badly a representative of Malfeas shows up to offer her a much more excitingalternative. Has its own Trope Page.
Synopsis: She was a very disturbed child. Terrible, debilitating nightmares. Hallucinations. Hysteria. She never had a chance at a normal life. But now at least Louise has a chance to summon a beautiful and powerful familiar at the Springtime Summoning Ritual. And somewhere else in the cosmos, a seven year old girl cries for release. Contains scenes of a disturbingly moe/disturbing nature.
Synopsis: Blah blah Louise summons something els- GODZILLA?! Yes, our favourite mage succeeds in summoning not just any beast, but one of the eggs left over from the attack on New York. It hatches, imprints upon her and Louise is faced with having to feed and house a rapidly-growing lizard the size of a mountain.
Synopsis: Of all the familiars Louise could've summoned, a seventeen-meter war golem was certainly not one of the things she or anyone else would've expected. Of course, they're not nearly as surprised as one Steve Lazlo Smith, the Zaku's pilot.
Synopsis: He was known as the Wrath of Odin, Zeus' Rage... and monster, But yet, all he desired was to redeem himself in the eyes of the world that had seen him as nothing but a monster. Defending several Conduit children, he holds up against the militia in a final act of redemption. But just as death comes for him... a pink haired mage calls for a familiar.
Synopsis: Hawk Magnus was just escaping some of his school's bullies while on the way to a convention, he wasn't expecting that green circle to be in his way nor was he expecting to be summoned to a world of magic and obtaining powers himself. Now armed with the powers of a villain, he has arrived to Halkeginia as Louise's Familiar. What adventures await him there? Technically crosses with Code Geass as well
Synopsis: Louise Valliere wanted a strong familiar to prove that she wasn't a failure. What she got was the only living Contractor in existence, Kazuma Yagami. Louise summoned Kazuma prior to the start of his series.
Synopsis: Louise summons a familiar, but it has no body, instead being able to possess and share those of hers and other's. The familiar provides her with a new way to view the world and it enables her to cast proper magic, beyond her mere explosions. A 357 year old leftist terrorist can fulfil all her wishes, but has one demand in return. "Change Halkeginia as I see fit".
Synopsis:The unlikeliest of crossings. The most improbable of incidents. The most hilarious of universes. A considerably different sort of crossover. Sanity is for the weak anyway. When Louise began the Summon Familiar ritual, she had no clue that another group of students were attempting the exact same thing. She has never before been so happy to have the title "the Zero" until now...
Synopsis: "I beg of you… My slave who lives somewhere in the universe! Oh sacred, beautiful and strong familiar spirit! I desire and here I plead from my heart! Answer to my guidance!" For such powerful magic words they are quite vague are they not? The universe has long since been proven to be far more massive than can be measured and the reflections even more infinite. Beautiful and strong can be defined in numerous ways and differ by one's own views of strength and beauty. However, a plea that comes straight from the heart fueled by a desire created from years of emotional torment by one's peers? That is a voice heard by any who are willing to listen.
Synopsis: Louise summons Zero from Mega Man X with interesting results as Zero comes of a high-tech society to Louise's Late Medieval Europe. Oh, and if women are booty then you might as well start calling Zero His Royal Badassery King Emperor Knight Captain Duke Jesus Double Cap'n Zero. Because he's so powerful he can turn Albion into a crater. Floating and or otherwise. The author really has a nack for writing overpowered characters like Zero.
Synopsis: Louise asked for a sacred, beautiful and strong familiar, hoping to gain a dragon, or a manticore, or perhaps a gryphon. She certainly got what she was looking for in the silver haired teen she summoned. Not that she knows it yet.
Comments: Basically a version of Babies Ever After Monster Girl Quest where Luka's son was summoned by Louise. Said son was taught by Alma Elma. I love to see the time when he meets Karin the Heavy Wind.
Synopsis: On one end, a young mage who begged fate for something that would validate her reason for being. At the other, a young man who sought the desolation of his existence. Where they meet, is the terror that would shake the very foundations of magic.
Note: Now has a Trope Page. Surrogate of Zero's page can be found here.
Synopsis: "A new overlady, you say? She's a little short and flat-chested, although her temper is impressively vile. Oh well. Needs must when needs must. Too long have the lands of Halkeginia gone without true Evil. There are fluffy bunnies and happy ponies all over the place, frolicking! It makes me quite sick! No, it doesn't matter if she wants to or not. Because Evil always finds a way."
Synopsis: Team Rocket never expected to find themselves with a new Boss, especially the young untalented Louise the Zero. With no twerps and Pikachu to chase after, Team Rocket decides to serve their new Boss with full gusto, and show the land of Halkeginia she's no Zero. Whether Louise likes it or not.
Synopsis: Louise summons the Blacklight-virus entity that calls itself Alex Mercer. That alone would be enough to describe the story that ensues, except that the history of Halkeginia is a little different from in canon...
Synopsis: Failing the Springtime Familiar Summoning was fate for Louise de la Valliére, but nothing could have prepared her for the consequences. While Tristain becomes a twisted shadow of its former self, Louise finds herself in a world where nearly everything is out to kill her and the fabric of reality has been warped beyond recognition. Welcome to the Zone, Louise. A nice reversal of usual ZnT fanfic "Louise summons X instead Saito" story. Set in Call of Pripyat timeline.
Synopsis: Louise got her wish to summon the most impressive familiar in her class when she ripped the entire Alfheim setting out of cyberspace and dumped it over Tristain. There's a giant tree looming over the academy, 61,000 "elves" who don't know why they're suddenly able to feel pain, monsters running amok in the countryside, and one particular black swordsman with an awful sense of deja vu. But what's become of Asuna, and what will the local schemers make of these new arrivals?
Synopsis: Louise...summoned something different. An Acolyte of Warcraft Three, the most basic and seemingly useless unit in the history of the Scourge. However, when you look at it in a different way, the Acolyte can create enormous constructions out of sheer nothingness provided there are resources. The most basic unit, becomes the most important. Especially when it follows his own rules.
