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.I'm Not by CuttieGirll57 (rating: K+)

Synopsis: Trina looks back in the past and wonders if she's really as talented as she thought.
Comments: This is a POV fic, full of flashbacks. It's a very interesting interpretation of the character of Trina, which has her going over her life after she's shot down by the person she'd least expect. It has a pretty good narrative, some brief looks at the other characters (which are handled really well), and a very different take on her personality. Highly recommended if you're a fan of the character.
Synopsis: What happens when Sam Puckett and Jade West meet up? Bad things, that's what. An AU version of iParty With Victorious, with plenty of humor and Sam/Jade friendship.
Comments: A crossover AU fic about what should have happened during "iParty With Victorious". Jade and Sam are totally in-character and they make such great frenemies! For all of those who wish these two had interacted during the special, this is the fic for you!
Synopsis: Being a student at Hollywood Arts, the most renowned performing and visual arts school in LA, is a hard enough journey. When your two younger sisters and your friends sometimes clash, it becomes a little bit harder.
Comments: Just Go With It is a story mostly revolving around Beckís OC siblings, Aly and Gwen, and the adventures and obstacles they face at Hollywood Arts with their brother and friends. Itís a very interesting read, especially for an OC story, and the cowriters do an excellent job making sure their writing styles flow together. The page for this fic can be found here.
Synopsis: The only stars are the ones glimmering in the night sky. / Welcome to Hollywood.
Comments: One of the most amazing Victorious drabbles/one-shots I've ever read. The plot revolves around what becomes of the characters after they graduate HA, and each story is completely believable. Despite the fact that it is a general fic, however, there is strong Bade and hints of Tandre and Bori mixed in it.
Unfortunately this story, along with all the others by that author have been deleted.
Synopsis: ashes, ashes - we all fall down! And it seems death creates a chain reaction.
Comments: An amazing (and long) Death Fic oneshot dealing with the aftermath of a car accident. Although it doesn't focus on shipping, almost every ship that's ever been shipped is featured in there somewhere, the most obvious being Beck/Tori, Tori/Andre, Beck/Jade, Jade/Robbie, Beck/Robbie, Beck/Cat. The only one notably out of character is Jade, although this is both justified and explained. However, there's quite a lot of angst, suicide, character death, and all around dark themes, so those who don't like that kind of thing should stay away from this.
Rating: T for language, violence, and suggestive themes.
Pairing(s): Possibly Trina/Robbie
Synposis: North Ridge Academy makes a return by assaulting various students from Hollywood Arts just as a stage combat exhibition is approaching, and to everyone's dismay, Trina becomes a necessity for them to achieve victory.
Stories focused on the romantic relationships between the cast.Stockholm Syndrome by amberpire (rating: M)
Recommended by Yannick
Pairing(s): Cat/Jade (one-sided)
Synopsis: Jade uses Cat as her fucktoy. Cat tries to find love in the relationship.
Comments: Admittedly, it seems doubtful that either character would be capable of the things they do in this fic. But neither of them really feel out of character or truly unbelievable, and more importantly, their behaviour enables a solid plot. The mood and theme are very dark, which is always nice. Finally, the story has a great narrative. Truly a recommendation for anyone who doesn't mind seeing a ship deconstructed.
Synopsis: Cat loses her stuffed animal "Stallion Mcdoodles". It later turns out that Stallion was stolen by Rex in an attempt to kidnap Cat to get back at Robbie for treating him like a "stupid puppet".
Comments: Heads up, this gets on the AU side. Some of the plot aspects are narm, but it adds an aspect of comic relief to the story. Robbie is the only one who is noticeably out of character, apart from him, everyone (especially Cat and Tori) seem to bee characterized pretty well. Highly recommended for fluff fans.
Synopsis: "I want that silence again, and I want her eyes looking at me again like I'm not psycho. Even though I am. It's nice not to be reminded." (It's hard to write a synopsis for this one.)
Comments: Purists may want to avoid this, since Jade (and Trina, to a lesser extent) is a bit Out of Character. However, like with Stockholm Syndrome, it makes the story better, so it's hard to hold this as a negative point. Other than that, this story is excellent. Dark, but very well written. The biggest factor in getting on this list is the story's interesting interpretation of Cat. It's safe to say that amberpire is an author with great potential, both for Victorious fan fiction and writing in general.
Synopsis: Carly couldn't realize how one stray comment and misjudgment of Freddie would change both their lives. Now he strives for a better life while she fights for their friendship and maybe his love again. Post iPwV, leading to iOMG.
Comments: A really great ongoing story with lot of potential, this fic explored the growing relationship between Cat and Freddie, as well as Carly's subsequent reaction to it. The author take a look at Carly's behaviour toward Freddie throughout the show (no character bashing intended).
Rating: M for sexual references and explicit sex scenes.
Synopsis: Jade saves Tori from being hurt at school. When Tori drags Jade into the supply closest to ask her why she did it. Jade kisses her.
Comments: Originally a one-shot, it was expanded to a full length story, about Jade and Tori coming to terms with their attraction both physical and emotional. Also notable as it doesn't ignore the Beck/Jade relationship despite them having broken up when the story starts.
