The Life And Times of the Fantasmic 4

Under Cover of Darkness
- Recommended by This Is A Test, Dm M
- Pairing(s): Arnold/Phoebe, Carlos/DA
- Synopsis: Phoebe and Arnold's relationship as the The Magic School Bus gang enters their senior year of high school.
- Comments: I remember reading it all in one sitting (a rare event) and thinking it was the best fan fiction on the website. (I also told the author this). It reads very much like the average high school romance novel, but expect consistent characterization (both with the characters as the fic portrays them and with the TV show) and a sort of sweet story.

- Pairing(s): Arnold/Phoebe, Ralphie/DA, Carlos/Keesha, Arnold/Wanda
- Synopsis: Inspired by The Walking Dead, the gang find themselves having to survive in a post-apocalyptic world overrun with maulers.
- Comments: An older MSB gang having to fight off zombies while trying to survive? Yes, please. This is perhaps the ultimateSora's best fic yet. Has its own page.
What Comes After
As I Always Say
- Recommended by loracarol
- Pairing(s): There isn't really enough romance for this story to be in the romance section, but if you wanna wear your shipping goggles, and see Ms. Frizzle/Arnold, it's possible to see that.
- Synopsis: Arnold is now Ms. Frizzle's student teacher, time goes on, and some people are starting to get... Older. (One Shot)
- Comments: This is one of the coolest MSB fanfics that I've ever read. It's a little on the sad side, but totally worth it, I promise.

- Comments: The author says she doesn't know much about Doctor Who. I'm not sure I believe her. You know all those Wild Mass Guessing ideas about Ms. Frizzle being a Time Lady? This is a treatment of that idea which makes for a believably alien Ms. Frizzle, who you really could see as being outside of the human treatments of time. Time Lady Mary Poppins also cameos.
