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

These are recommendations made by Tropers for Fan Fics, all of which have been signed. After a few samples, you will be able to judge whether you might be interested in the 'fic, based on who recommended it. No-name recommendations will be zapped. Nobody would back up the rec. Discussion of the recommendation is welcome on the discussion page. As such discussion is important, do remember to add the discussion page to the watchlist, if need be.

Do note which pairings in the fic, if any, venture into lemony territory. Not everyone's a fan of either slash or het, let alone the other, stranger options.

Your Truth is my Lie
  • Recommended by Lisztening
  • Comments: One of the few Vocaloid fanfiction writers out there who really explores the worlds presented in each music video in song based works and manages to stay true in feel to the source material while adding her own touches. She is very fond of explicit femslash lemon though and is especially fond of Neru x Haku so those who are averse to such types of works may want to think before jumping in to read her fanfiction. With that said, her writing is very finely tuned and her sex scenes sensuously composed without becoming gratuitously purple, so if one isn't extremely put off by Yuri Genre, it is very worthwhile to give her a chance.

  • Recommended by: theunhappytwins, parucafe
  • "Comments": She rarely uses P Vs for inspiration. And by 'rarely', I mean almost never. However, she writes some of the best darkfics out there, and is brilliant at writing for Rinx Len, which is her main pairing. Her writing is extremely good. If you aren't put off by the amount of darkness, you should definitely check it out.

Masaichu
  • Recommended by: parucafe
  • Comments: A great writer who likes to depicts fictional family ties or affection links between Vocaloid, Voyakiloid and Utauloid. Reading what he writes usually change your idea of some of them.

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.

Late Night Madness by ShinigamiOfHeaven.
  • Recommended by Mysterynovelist2010
  • Synopsis: Based in a world were the deformed are sent away so that society wont have to deal with them, an unusal bunch of deformed band together to escape Koo Island: their prision.
  • Comments: Unlike most 'Late Night Madness' fics, this one focuses more on the backgrounds of each of those seen in the song, which gives more depth and reality to the story. Plus, it makes a pretty interesting twist, considering that the characters are not as 'mad' as they appear and are determined to escape.

Kidnapped by Chibis of Evil.
  • Recommended by MikaruKeiko
  • Synopsis: After Tei kidnaps Len, the main crew makes a long journey to rescue him.
  • Comments: Edges slightly into Crack Fic and Dark Fic territory, but is mostly overshadowed by its lighter moments. Now has a sequel.

Daughter of the White Tiger by Ghost-Drive.
  • Recommended by Mirelle94Dancer
  • Synopsis: "A girl, an exorcist, a famed figure told in tales. A boy, a mass murderer, whose name would scare innocent children. Generations passed- the girl had forgotten him- and when they meet again, he tried to bring "the old her" back. But was it necessary?"
  • Comments: At first, this seem to be a romance fic. But as the story goes on it seems to be covering about the problems of life surrounding the main character (Rin) and her guardian spirit (Len) as they venture in their holiday life. The author said they will be fighting off satan in the process. Tenses are a bit messed up, but it has a good plot worth reading with emotional torrents inside.

Utatane Piko: Journey To My Family by xXPhantomXx
  • Recommended by Shamisen-kun
  • Synopsis: "Utatane Piko was due out December 8th. But when the truck containing the packaged Piko in the back skids on the icy road in the countryside and crashes, killing the driver, Piko is left alone to make his own journey to the Vocaloid household."
  • Comments: A darker look into the origins of Utatane Piko, one of the lesser-known Vocaloids. Piko is naturally mostly clueless about the world, so his interactions with the environment are realistic and cute- a certain question of 'I need to pee?' comes to mind. Little to no spelling or grammar errors, and a well-developed plot. Overall, definitely take the time to read this. Sadly, it's incomplete at the time of recommendation.

From Concert to Chaos by Mr. Fanfic Guy
  • Recommended by CJO123
  • Synopsis: On the afternoon of Saturday July 10, 2010, the Vocaloids held a concert at the Tanabata festival in Hiratsuka, Kanagawa. The decision would prove to be disastrous. Right in the middle of the concert, Miku and Rin were savagely and mercilessly attacked on stage in front of more than 16,000 fans by Miku Zatsune and Rin Arakawa. And what provoked this attack? The fact that Zatsune and Arakawa were dating Mikuo and Len, respectively. When they were dumped because of their rotten behavior, they convinced themselves that the girls were somehow responsible for it, and that they would have to pay dearly, even though that is clearly not the case. Unbelievably, it actually gets much much worse than that. Too much to really list, but I will tell you it involves an electric barrier, a wall of fire, massive audience panic, and towards the end of the fanfic, a prison escape. Even though Miku and Rin are both seriously injured in this attack, they will eventually recover, and their assailants will get their comeuppance.
  • Comments: From the same author of the Lucky Star fanfics The Day Everything Changed and Holiday Vacation. May not be suitable for readers under age 13. A prime example of a Dark Fic, and packed with a good amount of Nightmare Fuel, especially during Chapter 4 and Chapter 7. You can't help but to feel sorry for both Miku and Rin, due to the fact that they did absolutely nothing to deserve what they were put through and neither did the nearly 900 (!) victims in the audience who were also injured. In terms of the rest of the characters, most of the Vocaloids, and in particular Mikuo and Len, become much stronger in the later chapters. Overall, despite the violence level, this is a very well written fanfic that you won't be able to put down.
    • @RN 452: I cannot recommend this fanfic. The writing is not good, in fact the paragraphs are cluttered, in the sense there's more than three persons talking in the same paragraph, an amateur mistake. Arakawa and Zatsune are simply villains whose schtick is to flaunt how EVIL they are (in fact, the trope page makes too much effort in using them to announce the fic, which is reflected in the actual fic). In fact, it needs rewriting.

The Wee World of Evillious by Densetsu-no-Maguro
  • Recommended by: CJ Croen 1393
  • Synopsis: When Banica Conchita realized that her cook might have been murdered, she sets on a journey to find him. But when she does, she's dragged in a political skirmish that might change her entire life, and others. Originally Seven Deadly Sins: CRACK
  • Pairings: None (yet).
  • Comments: A Crack Fic take on mothy's works. It's really funny, and features humorous Alternate Character Interpretation of the Evillious characters. Was formerly an equally funny story called Seven Deadly Sins: CRACK but the author decided to rewrite the series on account of it being inaccurate to the plot of the Evillious Chronicles.

Behind Golden Eyes by Ryuchu
  • Recommended By: mysterynovelist2010
  • Synopsis: A war that's stood unresolved for years, a group of mysterious child snatchers, a young boy who's just trying to survive day by day. When these 3 elements meet, Oliver is thrown into a life he neither expected nor wanted.
  • Comments: One of the best Oliver-centric fics I've ever read, Behind Golden Eyes has proven to be a really realistic story so far, portraying the struggles of a young poor boy trying to escape the army that is trying to turn him into a child soldier while finding his two companions very accurately, with believable reactions to the events transpiring around him.

Miku Plus by catstudio
  • Recommended By: arahman56
  • Synopsis: The day-to-day life of various Vocaloids living together, with guest appearances by Black★Rock Shooter and Leonidas.
  • Comments: It should be noted that it's drawn by a Thai artist, so it should be read like an English comic. Also, it does get suggestive at times.

Works and Legacy of Miku Hatsune by Runic Healer
  • Recommended by: KillerBee12
  • Synopsis: Thevos was a country faraway from the world - secluded as an enormous man-made island in the middle of the Pacific. Miku Hatsune was once an internationally famous singer part of the Vocaloid program, until she reached eighteen. Now at twenty-nine, she comes home after making a name for herself in the field of Japanese courtrooms and hope to save her country from itself. Explicit.
  • Comments: This looks really promising. The writing is a little choppy, but it can be easily ignored over the quality and content. What makes this different is that the setting and the characters are portrayed out of the norm. It's fairly new and it's definitely worth a try.
    • This fic has been taken down.

Hoshi Meguri no Waltz by Gyari
  • Recommended by: Gunbazca
  • Synopsis: A Vocaloid-themed outlook of the 2011 Sendai Earthquake, combined with the Vocaloid song of the same title. Starring mainly Rin & Len. Also, this is Based on a True Story.
  • Comments: The art style is rather simplistic and rough-ish, but it carries the story well. The story is a good one, and carries a strong You Are Not Alone theme. While Meiko is portrayed in a rather unflattering light, Len more than makes up for picking up on Rin's well-being.

Angels of Light by alvinluv
  • Recommended by: parucafe
  • Synopsis: Kaito, Meiko, Miku and Yuki are happy family. They would like to adopt a little boy though, and go to a Christian orphanage. Strange rumors spread on two odd twins, Rin and Len. They both win the heart of the family and soon move in their new house. Miku however, is plagued by horrific nightmares...
  • Comments: This fanfiction give goosebumps. Maybe not the best darkfic our there, but still a good one.

If So, Exploration by Chocomint3
  • Recommended by: parucafe, Miss Romantic Tragedy
  • Synopsis: What was at first an experimentation seemed very promising. Depicts a strained relationship between Rin and Len as siblings, in a somewhat(albeit not confirmed) magical world.
  • Comments: You really should check it out. It stands out among a mass of other fanfictions.

I Don't Want Her, I Want You by The Queen of Double Standards
  • Recommended by: parucafe
  • Synopsis: A few hours after Len proposed to Rin, he was shortly killed. Rin learn the news and cope very badly, falling into depression. That's when Yuki and a social worker show at her doorstep; Yuki was adopted by Len...
  • Comments: Heart-wrenching tale. Its plot is unique and the interactions between the characters are chilling realistic. There's a few hints of Iroha/Rin, because Yuki calls them 'Mom' and 'Mama', and both women live under the same roof. However, Rin's damaged personality abort romance, and it even takes her a long time to accept Yuki in her life. Interesting turn in children abuse, too. A must-read.

Along Came a Spider by Nerumi H
  • Recommended by: parucafe
  • Synopsis: Banica Conchita, another version. This time, it's extremely dark.
  • Comments: The most terrifying tale of the Evillious Chronicles, written by Nerumi H. WARNING: Gore

All The Fragile Ones by Tiruneko
  • Recommended by: RN452
  • Synopsis: "The blade flew into the young girl's skull, killing her. But out of the fog of pain the small child staggered to her feet and pulled the blade right out of her head, splattering the audience with blood. "Such a bad child you are! Demon child!" And without another glimpse of daylight she was shut away. But that was a long time ago. And things change, but not that much."
  • Comments: A novelization of "Six Trillion Years and Overnight Story", but expanded. The characterization is excellent and it'll make you sad, but while it has a dark tone, it's also tempered with calm moments.

Release Me From My Song by experimentingdangers
  • Recommended by: RN452
  • Synopsis: "Miku is a program. All the Vocaloids are. But when a few of these Vocaloids outsmart the program and become human they will discover just how much they have been missing out, from lifeless and emotionless to sharp emotions they will struggle to stay human. To never become that unfeeling singer again. They become fighters, battling for a different voice."
  • Comments: Basically the Vocaloids start to become self-aware and managed to escape from the cyberspace and land in an alternate dimension where they are humans. This is an exceptionally well-written Vocaloid fic, in which the Vocaloids have a lot of Character Development to learn to work with their newfound human emotions and bodies. The human O Cs are also well-written, fitting in the setting like a glove. In a nutshell, a very good Slice of Life, until the chapter 44, and even that was foreshadowed.

Stories focused on the romantic relationships between the cast.

Hear My Song! by Kuugen the Fox.
  • Recommended by shermanramni, Raineh Daze.
  • Pairings: Miku X Luka, Neru X Haku, and others.
  • Synopsis: There are many idols and stars in modern Tokyo, but one shines above others, Luka Megurine. Miku Hatsune, your everyday ordinary girl, aims to become like her. A songstress, a Idol. But nothing is as it seems in the music business.
  • Comments: Well fleshed-out personalities and interactions, great pacing, and a compelling story. Some of the pairings are a bit annoying, but maybe it's because they still haven't had time to develop (only 3 chapters for now). WARNING: Mild yuri content.

Go Google It by Lithium Suicide.
  • Reccommended by JenKunoichi351
  • Pairings: Gakupo X Luka
  • Synopsis: This was the first and last time Luka would try internet dating.
  • Comments: The story has a really nice flow and the character interaction between Luka and Gakupo, both on and off the internet, is hilarious. Unfortunately, the updating is really erratic. It's not a dead fic, but it gets updated about twice a year or less.

The Start Of Something Sinister by AEQUORIN.
  • Recommended by Voice Of Reason
  • Pairings: Rin X Len, Gakupo X Luka, Miku X Kaito, Mikuo X Gumi
  • Synopsis: Rin and Len Kagamine are fraternal twins in their late teens living a quaint life when Len suddenly starts to have abnormal dreams. The story revolves around Len and his quest to find out what these dreams mean and what they have to do with his past and his sister Rin. "The Start Of Something Sinister" contains a wide array of side characters some of which have interesting personalities/problems of their own such as Kiyoteru and Gumi (within the later chapters). Many of the chapters take place within Len's nightmares where several imagined characters help him find clues as to what his delusions really entail.
  • Comments: Contains Twincest and is a Tear Jerker. The plot also uses Psychological Scars and a symbolic Butterfly of Death and Rebirth. The story line istelf is highly emotional and one of the few well-written twincest fanfics out there. This plot is highly recommended for those who enjoy Dark Fics and realistic Slice Of Life novels. Interesting side note: the author is a novice despite his first work appearing to be a hit.

Ununlucky in Life, Love, and Suicide by Vocaloidofos
  • Recommended by: Keikosaur
  • Synopsis: The only thing Mikuo expected to get out of his suicide attempt was a broken bicycle. Now he has Akaito. Oh, and The Haganes, but you haven't heard of an obscure travelling band like them. (told in diary format)
  • Pairing(s): Akaito X Mikuo is the main focus (meaning there's yaoi), but there is also RinxLen (Magane, not Kagamine. Whether this is incest or not is apparently up to who you ask, even in-story). There are sort-of sex scenes, but nothing lemony.
  • Comments: The story is very good and original; its main focus is romance, obviously, but unlike many shipping fics this does not mean the plot is sacrificed. Each of the characters is also very distinct and full of life (and they have their own voices; it's immediately clear when someone other than Mikuo is writing in his diary). Also, it's hardly dark or depressing at all even though the premise of the story is a suicide pact, yet the characters' emotions still seem real and make sense. I loved it in general, and it's definitely worth a read!

I Once Saw A Goddess by Ordile
  • Recommended by: CJ Croen 1393
  • Synopsis: Miku meets Luka in the park and is instantly mesmerized by her beauty. But then she begins to feel something more for her than admiration...
  • Pairing(s): Miku/Luka, so it's yuri. Also hints of Kaito/Meiko and one-sided Gakupo/Luka.
  • Comments: One of the best Miku/Luka fics I've read. Miku is totally Adorkable in it and Luka is portrayed quite well. Their relationship is shown to grow rather realistically, although so far the feelings are one-sided from Miku. Still something to read if you want a cute, kind of funny little yuri story.

For a Sick Boy by renahh chen
  • Recommended by: Nothingtoseehere
  • Synopsis: Len, a rather shy teenager, discovers that he is in love with his identical twin sister, Rin. From there, things get much, much worse for Len.
  • Pairings: Onesided Len/Rin, Miku/Luka
  • Comments: A very realistic, deconstuctive take on Twincest, especially onesided. Told entirely as Len speaks to a psychiatrist (except the epilogue), it captures his character and emotions very well. Be warned that it contains suicide, self harm, descriptions of incest, and yuri.

An Obnoxiously Long Way to Say Something So Simple by hamxham
  • Recommended by: Gigglepud
  • Synopsis: 100. Until the end. A collection of 100 hundered-word drabbles for the Kagamines.
  • Pairings: Len/Rin Twincest
  • Comments: A light humorous collection of well written drabbles. It was a great read, even for me who don't particularly ship Rin/Len as twincest.

Dear Gumi, by manateelover777
  • Recommended by: codepurple
  • Synopsis: Gumi, aka a socially invisible otaku, considers herself a fail at high school life. Once she literally runs into Len at an otherwise boring assembly, however, her life is turned upside down.
  • Pairings: Len/Gumi, and it's looking like Gakupo/Luka and See U/Kaito
  • Comments: A diary done from Gumi's POV. The interactions are realistic, even if some of the plot points are not. There's a few spelling errors and misused words at the beginning, but it gets better.

Discord by Meepy
  • Recommended by: parucafe
  • Synopsis: A collection of AU drabbles and/or oneshots, each one depicting Dell and Lily's relationships.
  • Pairings: Lily/Dell not all the time though...
  • Comments: It's sometimes short, sometimes not; either way, it's very well done and make your heart ache, because it can be sweet or sad. I really recommend it.

Faceless by Fantasism
  • Recommended by: parucafe
  • Synopsis: Two years ago, it took her brother. And now it was coming for her.
  • Pairings: Gakupo/Rin
  • Comments: Slenderman AU. An hesitant friendship forms between Rin and Gakupo, a detective. An interesting read. This author also writes great and his Gakupo/Rin oneshots are worth of a try.

Locks and Key by Nerumi H
  • Recommended by: parucafe
  • Synopsis: One-shot featuring Dell, Gumi and Yuma, Rapunzel-style.
  • Pairings: Yuma/Gumi/Dell
  • Comments: Humoristic piece of work, because two princes are too much. Unfortunately, Nerumi H doesn't write anymore Vocaloid nowadays.

to save the birds by bbyiamthesexypizza
  • Recommended by: parucafe
  • Synopsis: Rin and Len are identical twins, rather than fraternal. After their parents' breakup, they get separated -though they still live in the same town- and Len, being a clumsy, dorky teenager, tries to maintain a timid link with his sister.
  • Pairings: It doesn't look like it at first, but it's Rin/Len.
  • Comments: Wow. Definitely wow. If no fanfic pleased you in this list, this one will enchant you. It's told in a very realistic tone, mainly because it's by Len's point of view, which tend to be pessimistic.

You Have Mail by Amaryne
  • Recommended by: parucafe
  • Synopsis: A story told by I Ms, texts, and all those other stuff those darn teenagers use these days.
  • Pairings: Rin/Len, Kaito/Miku, Luka/Gakupo
  • Comments: I'm surprised this wasn't here already. A fanfic that brings a smile on anyone's face. If you ever have a bad day, just read this!

Second Star by Mipiko
  • Recommended by: enzeneie
  • Synopsis: Even the passage of time does nothing to dampen the bond and love between two close friends. The story about a young Princess and her adventures with a young boy who never wanted to grow up.
  • Pairings: SF-A2 miki and YOHI Oloid with established VY 2 Yuuma x MEIKO and KAITO x Miku
  • Comments: I've never read a fanfiction that gripped my attention as steadfast as this one. Towards the final two chapters, I was absolutely engrossed in it that I actually teared up after Miki discovers Yohio's limp and bloodied body after managing to defeat the Gryphon that tried to kill her, waiting anxiously for him to breathe, only to find out that once she's sure he's still alive that he's now missing one of his hands.. The choice of vocabulary also adds onto the fairytale like structure that it's got going on that's a nice touch. Definitely recommend.

''Project: VOCALOID by Chiio Majesty
  • Recommended by: theunhappytwins
  • Synopsis: A cyborg, Rin, is created as the key to answer to a madman's wish: her father's. However, she escapes to Japan, in hindrance. Now on a mission to regain her lost past, Rin finds herself helplessly drawn to teenage life, drama, and Len Kagamine.
  • Pairings: Rin x Len, Rin x Mikuo, Miku x Len, Luka x Gakupo, Kaito x Meiko, Teto x Ted
  • Comments: Oh. My. God. Do not judge this by the cover. It is one of the most amazing things out there. I cannot do this justice. Just…read it.

''Of Revenge and Redemption by Tangelo Time
  • Recommended by iTroll
  • Synopsis: In which Kaito and Meiko run into Rin, dressed as Len, a month and a half after the death of the Daughter of Evil
  • Pairing: Kaito x Miku, though it isn't the focus.
  • Comments: An especially heartbreaking fanfiction that plays with the idea if what would happen if Kaito and Meiko met Rin in the aftermath of the execution. It has especially beautiful imagery and it never ceases to bring me to tears every time I read it. You really get a feel for the characters and what they're going through.

Tokyo Intermezzo by Genki Collective
  • Recommended by: Ech0Sierra
  • Synopsis: When superstar pianist Yukari comes to town to play a concert with trumpet player Ia's orchestra, Ia - who's been a huge Yukari fan for years - is overjoyed at finally getting to meet her idol. But Ia never expected that their passing encounter would turn into so much more.
  • Pairings: Yuri Genre. Yukari/IA, GUMI/Lily. Warning: Not Safe for Work.
  • Comments: Modern Japan setting. Insane levels of research and world-building. Definitely Lemon, but the erotic scenes serve to drive the plot and definitely aren't pointless. Mood Whiplash is an understatement when it comes to this author, and strategic use of it along with cliffhangers is one of her greatest strengths. WARNING: NSFW Yuri Content.
''Anew by Vocal Raynbow
  • Recommended by: theunhappytwins
  • Synopsis: "Today is the beginning." And it really was, wasn't it?
  • Pairings: Miku/Rin
  • Comments: This is how to do Mind Screw right. It's an insane fic that manages to combine tons of diverse elements that somehow make one crazy whole. It also has one of the best deconstructions of Love at First Sight ever and an ending that is…crazy in the best possible way.
