Recommended by: Troper Name
Synopsis: What's the story about? Give here a brief summary of the plot. It would be also useful to point out in what moment of the series the story takes place. If it's a Gen Fic but it has some romantic elements, note here the characters involved too.
Pairing(s): If it's a Shipping Fic, list here the pairings that feature in the fic (warn here if it's het, male slash or female slash). If it's a Gen Fic, remove this line. To tell the difference between the two, notice if the focus of the fic is on a romantic relationship or if it focuses on the other aspects of the story. In case of doubt, classify the story according to the genres it's been tagged: the Romance tag for Shipping, absence of that tag for Gen Fic.
Synopsis: Grand Master Dashi didn't feel like disappearing after he trapped Wuya for the second time. Jack Spicer caught his eye, and he decided he was up for a little challenge... But Jack just wants to be evil!
Synopsis: AU. The three Wudai Warriors of the Xiaolin temple are faced with a new challenge when they accidently unlock Wuya's apprentice, Rai the Wind demon. Things soon become complicated, especially when Rai decides it's time for a change.
Synopsis: It's been several months since Raimundo was chosen to be the leader. The monks were unstoppable so far, not even Hannibal Roy Bean has been able to slow down their victories. However, they shouldn't let their guard down, Chase Young is still watching and waiting. The tides of this war can turn against them quite easily, and if they aren't careful they could lose Omi forever.
Comments: Only a couple of chapters are out so far, but from Chapter one alone, I recommend this fic. The exploration of Omi and Chase's rather "interesting" friends/enemies relationship makes it worth the read. And it hints at some more interesting things to come.
Synopsis: Omi gets hurt and separated from the group. He wakes up to finding none other than the villainous Chase Young helped him. But this isn't the only conflicting thing the young monk has to deal with. Omi gets some news from the immortal warrior that causes great confliction within himself as well.
Comments: This author really knows Omi and Chase's characters really well, it's only a oneshot chapter fic, but the characterization is spot on. The dialogue fits just right for both our hero and villain, and the author gives us a different way to look at the relationship between the two. (And it is not a romance fic, thank god.)
Synopsis: How did Clay, Kimiko, and Rai get their powers, and how did they get drafted to the temple as dragons? Follow each of them through their stories as they gain control over their elements and, ultimately, their lives…
Synopsis: Raimundo is finally the team leader, but his problems are hardly over. While Hannibal Bean plots revenge, the Xiaolin monks encounter strange visitors, ruthless villains, and unexpected betrayals. All the while, a foe stronger than anything they've faced before gathers its strength...
Comments: The author has an incredible understanding of each and every character in the Xiaolin universe, bringing a darker tone to the classic feel without losing any of what made the characters fun and humorous in the first place. The plot is intricate and well planned with plenty of foreshadowing and some genius plot twists that will have you at the edge of your seat.
Status: Likely Dead Fic, which is kinda fine since it's one-shots.
Synopsis: A collection of drabbles.
Comments: Absolutely hilarious snapshots of various characters' lives, occasionally bordering on Crack Fic whenever Chase Young is concerned. Various degrees of Chase/Wuya, Raimundo/Kimiko, and (get this) Clay/Katnappe, and slowly the plots get a bit more serious. Unfortunately, the only one with continuing plot, a three-shot... is stuck at part II and the last update was March 2011. You have been warned.
Synopsis: "one shot Omi is having trouble readjusting after the events in 'Time After Time'."
Comments: Description is an understatement, but Scribbler does a Tear Jerker of a job exploring the Real Life reprocussions of a boy remembering an arch-enemy as a true mentor and seeing his friends Killed Off for Real.
Synopsis: Jack Spicer uses a new Shen-Gong-Wu to force Chase Young into giving him a favor.
Comments: When I was younger, I wasn't into slash—until I read this excellently written fic. It is first in a series of stories that have a very strong plot along with the shipping. A must-read for Jack/Chase fans. Unfortunately, the full story is posted on livejournal - those without memberships may not be able to read it all.
Synopsis: Jack and Omi Make a trip back to the past in an attempt to affect the destiny of the man known as Chase Young, however the good Chase Young of the past has become quite enamored with a certain Evil Boy Genius!
Comments: This is probably one of my favorite, if not my favorite Chack story ever. The character development is great and the story gets you happy, scared, excited, etc. It's also hard to believe that this was written before the season finale aired because of some similarities!
Synopsis: Normally, when Jack Spicer discovers something about his evil idol, Chase Young, he is overjoyed. But this time, it's something that could turn his entire world upside down.
Comments: This story focuses mainly on Jack and his and Megan's time under protection from the other villains due his discovery and it's very interesting to read Jack discover his feelings until he eventually has to face them.
Dellanotte: This is a pretty good story, and I don't even like the main pairing. However, the execution is original, the plot is well-thought out and entertaining, and not a character is wasted or particularly off the mark (unless a hidden Dere-dere side of Chase Young counts). The direct romance doesn't actually take over the story until the end, either, and the author handles both developing Chase/Jack and subtle Rai/Kim quite well.
Synopsis: Those pop mags finally got something right.
Comments: A very cute story dealing with an unusually right pop magazine quiz that seems to be matching everyone's personality to a T, as well as what type they should be with! Chase decides to take the quiz and find interesting results. A fluffy and nice one-shot between Jack and Chase. It had me smiling ear to ear.
Comments: Besides a few minor differences, you have a Cinderella story with Jack as the titular character and Chase as the prince. It's very interesting especially with the choice to have Clay and Genderbent Jessie as the evil stepBROTHERS. It's very cute and stays true at the end to the original Brothers Grimm story. Don't get that? Read it! :) It's worth it.
Synopsis: After getting hit by a new wu, Jack shows Chase his emotional side.
Comments: Jack is forced to be taken over by his most prominent emotions when hit by the wu the Scale of Hong and Chase Young decides to help him and it is both emotional and funny. Somewhat R\remnant of the scene with Howl's hair from Howl's Moving Castle film, Jack's eyes change with each personality and each reaction is very different. The story is a great read and very entertaining.
Synopsis: "When they were younger, Kimiko and Keiko were the best of friends. But the world changes, life calls, and you can't change fate, or destiny. No matter how much you wish too. Kimiko Keiko friendship. Hints of Kimiko x Raimundo. One Shot."
Synopsis: "Raimundo x Kimiko Request. Once again, Rai plants a virus on her PDA, only this time, it threatens permanent death for her gadget if she doesn't get the password right. He offers Kim 2 choices: crack the password, or beg him for it."
Synopsis: It's been 6 years since the monks finished their training and left the temple. But when a shadow sorcerer escapes from an eternal imprisonment, Omi brings the monks back together to stop him. But reuniting as a team may prove more difficult.
Comments: A few grammar errors here and there but an all around decent adventure romance that has you rooting for the monks. Also takes a darker path to Raimundo's unknown past...Fiction T. Complete.
