  • Tron: Uprising Tribute "Self Made Program" by Draqua
  • Recommended by Allronix
  • Comments: The song choice, La Roux's cover of "Self Machine" is surprisingly upbeat and sunny for a franchise that hasn't been the least bit optimistic since 1982. However, the themes of the song and the choice of clips works, especially given Beck's relentless determination to choose his own path, and the Programs' depiction in series as having wildly ranging moral compasses and just as much "heart" as any human.

The Renegade by Marvel 6
  • Recommended by CMR Rosa
  • Status: Dormant

The Renegade causes a distraction that saves Syra from the trial of the Games but that favor is not about to go unpaid. When Beck is gravely injured, and death is at his door, only one program can save him. Or will she condemn him?

Change of Leadership by Chaostructure
  • Recommended by Allronix
  • Status: Completed one-shot
  • Synopsis: The Coup, from Dyson's point of view
  • Comments: It takes a lot of effort to make Dyson, of all Programs, look sympathetic considering the stunts he pulled in-universe, but Chaostructure makes a compelling case for the Coup and the actions that followed being less evil and more I Did What I Had to Do. It doesn't necessarily make Dyson any less dangerous or his actions any less terrible, but it argues compellingly that the situation on the Grid was much more morally grey than the series and film depicted.

False Flag by Chaostructure
  • Recommended by Allronix
  • Status: Completed one-shot
  • Synopsis: Dyson discovers Clu orchestrated the conflict against the Isos.
  • Comments: Again, Chaostructure pulls off a sympathetic look at one of the Tron universe's most vile characters, this one depicting what would happen if Dyson found out how much of the whole setup that caused him to support Clu was based on a lie. Two different endings, as well - one where Dyson decides it doesn't matter, and one where it does.

Crossover Fics
Stories which crossover with other characters or works.

''Avengers Uprising by God's Great Dance Floor
  • Recommended by CMR Rosa
  • Vanished from the internet. Please post a link if found.
  • Synopsis: Tony, Natasha, Clint and Steve are sent off to find out the cause of a strange message S.H.I.E.L.D has been getting. But what they discover will shock them, and raise questions that will decide the fate of the Earth and the Grid. Takes place during Uprising. Might be some swearing.
  • Comments: I believe this is the first Tron: Uprising crossover and it up to a good start
