Fanfic Recs: Tintin
Proof that the remaining 10% is worth dying for here.

These are recommendations made by Tropers for Tintin 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.

An important thing to note is that the scarcity of these is probably due to Moulinsart, the copyright holders for Tintin, having a very dim view on fan works, fearing infringements on their intellectual property.

One Small Step, by kindkit
  • Recommended by Tipsy
  • Pairing: Haddock/Tintin
  • Synopsis: "Going to the moon is the simple part." A remarkably well-written and melancholy story that takes pace during the events of Tintin Destination Moon and Tintin Explorers On The Moon that mainly revolves around Tintin's thoughts about the Captain and Marlinspike Hall.

Bedtime Story, by Unicorn1980
  • Recommended by KadytheRedPanda
  • Pairing: Haddock/Tintin
  • Synopsis: "Babysitting a hyperactive Prince Abdullah, Haddock resorts to reading a fairy tale." A very cute shortie that has Haddock resorting to tell "The Three Little Pigs," his style, to shut everyone's least favorite prince up long enough to fall asleep. The resulting version is extremely funny.

Long Live General Tapioca, by Expecting Rain
  • Recommended by KadytheRedPanda
  • Pairing: N/A
  • Synopsis: "In San Theodoros, Tintin is captured by General Tapioca and sentenced to death by firing squad. What thoughts run through his mind as he waits to be rescued? And how will his friends survive if they don't get there in time?" Hell of a tear jerker, especially considering what emotional pain Tintin's friends go through. It presents at the end Chang becoming a reporter in response to his friend's death, and I personally would love to see his adventures as well. Poor guy gets so little screentime in canon and fanon.

Fated Friendship, by Skeexikx
  • Recommended by KadytheRedPanda
  • Pairing: N/A
  • Synopsis: "Tintin didn't need anybody in his life, after all, he was a most independent youth, ready to take on the world. But fate had other plans. Tintin & Snowy." This is a great story to read if you need cute Snowy and Tintin feels. I can see this as how Tintin adopted Snowy in canon.
