Fanfic Recs: The Mysterious Benedict Society
Children can look for special opportunities; why shouldn't fanfics?

These are recommendations made by Tropers for The Mysterious Benedict Society fanfics, all of which have to be signed to stay on the page. Feel free to add a fanfic of your own to the list, but remember to use the template found here.

You can also add to the current recommendations if you want. Refrain from posting Conversation in the Main Page though; that goes in the discussion page.

Status guide:

  • Complete: Exactly What It Says on the Tin.
  • Ongoing: The fic is being updated on a regular basisnote , or has received an update after a significant absence.
  • Dormant: The fic has not been updated in a fairly long time (several months to a year or more) but the author has not pronounced it dead.
  • Dead: The fic has not been updated in several years, or the author has specifically said that it will not be updated.

Note: Fics listed as Dormant or Dead will be changed to Ongoing if/when they receive updates. If you see a rec with a blank status, and you're familiar with the fanfic, please add the correct status.

Authors and Websites

Anything by Grammar Defender
  • Recommended by KA
  • Grammar Defender has written some of the most original works I've seen on this site and doesn't fail to impress me. Her fic "Smile", an OC story about an anonymous subordinate of Mr. Curtain, is an eerily wonderful rendition of what it must have been like to work for him.

Anything by ButterBeerBoy
  • Recommended by KA
  • Butter Beer Boy is one of the oldest authors in the archive and probably one of the most dedicated as well. Unfortunately he hasn't exactly been active in a while, but what he has written is excellent.

General Fics
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.

Words Among Friends by zealousfreak27 
  • Recommended by Totally Epic Nerd
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: A typical meeting of the Society, told entirely in dialogue. Post-Prisoner's Dilemma, but no spoilers.

This Moment in Time by Spark Writer 
  • Recommended by Totally Epic Nerd
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: A sweet little friendship one-shot.

An Exchanging Of Letters by Mezzanote
  • Recommended by KA
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: A couple of chapters of Sticky-and-Constance banter through letters — between poetry, name-calling, and discussions of typewriters, it's hilarious and true-to-character.

Intersecting Pathways by Dove's Wing
  • Recommended by KA
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: "Friendship is simple...yet complicated." "You know that doesn't make sense at all, right?" she asked. "Yep," he replied, "which is exactly why friendship itself does not make sense." — Rare bit of insight to Martina Crowe's and Mr. Curtain's characters.

Bones and Babies by Grammar Defender
  • Recommended by Pichu
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: Very depressing. Warnings - Depressing writing, creepy quotes, insanity, and character death. Not a light and fluffy little romance, folks. This one is truly creepy.
  • Comments: As the author's synopsis says it is quite dark but that's what I like about it. It's quite well-written if I do say.

''Invincible by Kahlan Aisling
  • Recommended by Pichu
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: One of her last thoughts is the realization that she is, actually, mortal.
  • Comments: It's a rather graphic death-fic, as you probably guessed.


Ruby Red by Thalia Castellan 
  • Recommended by Totally Epic Nerd
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: There were a lot of things Constance Contraire didn't like. If she were to make a list, she would have run out of paper long before she wrote everything she hated down. She wasn't sure, though, if being called beautiful would be on that list or not. Minor Constance/Sticky, mentioned Kate/Reynie.
