General Fics

Sadistic Enmity by Cgaume12
  • Recommended by Freya Crescent
  • Synopsis: Pain. How can one define pain? Is it physical, mental, emotional? Maybe...it's all in your head...
  • Comments: A look into Cynder's troubled mind.

The Legend of Spyro: A New Dawn by Kendell
  • Recommended by Toko WH
  • Synopsis: It's been 9 years since the Dark Master was defeated but a darkness is coming on the horizon. The new Year of the Dragon brings with it the dawn of a vengeful new enemy intent on tearing Spyro and Cynder's peaceful lives apart at the seams. Finished!
  • Comments: An interesting take on events after the Legend of Spyro series, this is the first in a trilogy that's so far shaping up to be pretty good. Though the early parts are a bit rough, it mostly irons itself out as you go and presents quite the story. Also notable is the fact that the writer managed to make Ember quite popular with its readers, which that a lone should tell you something.

Lost by Riverstyxx
  • Recommended by Toko WH
  • Synopsis: Cynder searches for Spyro.
  • Comments: Taking place some time after the ending to DotD, Lost follows Cynder as she wakes up on a beach with Spyro no where to be found. Determined to find him, Cynder sets out on a journey in an unfamilar land... But it soon becomes apparent that there's more to this strange world than it appears... Started as a challenge to keep the author writing every single day, it's notable for it's frequent, almost once a day updates with occassional short breaks in between. Definitely a good read for any LoS fan.

The Legend Of Cynder Series
  • Recommended by Toko WH
  • Synopsis: An ebony egg floats down the Silver River. Thrown into Spyro's shoes in more ways than one, can Cynder overcome what awaits? Did Ignitus make a mistake that will destroy the realms' last hope of salvation? More importantly, will Sparx shut up long enough for Cynder to get anything done? And where is Spyro; dead...or worse?
  • Comments: While there are lot of Spyro fics out there that go by the concept "What if X character/OC/whoever was with/replaced Spyro during the events of the The Legend of Spyro?", the Legend of Cynder series is one of the few that manages to make it entertaining. It starts out a bit rough, following The Stations of the Canon for the most part as it pokes fun at a lot of the Fridge Logic and Head Scratchers the Legend of Spyro series, but it gets better as it goes on. It isn't just 'The Legend of Spyro but with Cynder as Spyro'. New events eventually arise from this change, Cynder has a lot more of a head strong personality than canon Cynder, the universe is generally expanded upon as time goes on, with new characters and plot lines added into the mix, all the while still never managing to lose it's roots of poking at the Fridge Logic the Legend of Spyro series presents, even when things eventually get a lot darker. Overall, this series is an interesting read, and if you're normally not big on the "The Legend of Spyro retold BUT WITH X CHARACTER AS THE MAIN CHARACTER!!", this at least worth a second glance.

Crossover Fics

Ponyville Goes to the... Dragons?? by Freelancer
  • Recommended by Toko WH
  • Cross-over with: My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic
  • Pairings: SpikeXEmber
  • Synopsis: ''Spyro, Cynder, and Ember are accidently brought to Equestria by one of Twilight's failed spells. With no quick way home, the three find themselves stuck in Ponyville, and being housed by none other than Spike and the lavender unicorn mare herself.
    • Soon, awkward and unusual situations arise, tempers flare with destructive consequences, personal demons threaten to rear their long suppressed heads once more, and Spike learns that sometimes if you wait long enough, love will find you.''
  • Comments: In interesting cross-over, and one of the few Spyro / Fi M cross-over fics I've actually enjoyed reading. Though, you're mileage may vary due to some Alternative Character Interpretation on Cynder's part, some Canon Welding of the classic and legend of Spyro series, it's main pairing, and of course, ponies, it's still a rather enjoyable cross-over fic none the less.
