Fanfic Recs / Wreck-It Ralph

Proof that the remaining 10% is worth dying outside of your game for here:

These are wreck-commendations made by Tropers for Wreck-It Ralph Fan Fics, all of which have to be signed to stay on the page. Remember to use the template found here.

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 attacked by Ralph. 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 watch-list, if need be.

Do warn when a fanfic may head into romantic or non-canon territory. Some people just don't like it, and as we all know, Shipping is Serious Business.

You can also add to the current recommendations if you want. You can do it by leaving a review or by adding your name to the recs line. Refrain from posting Conversation in the Main Page though; that goes in the discussion page.
