''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.''

''Literature/ParadiseLost'' by John Milton
* Recommended by {{Salnax1}}, {{Jordan}}, @/{{Narsil}}
* ''Status'': Complete
* ''Synopsis'': Satan, having recently lost in his rebellion, organizes his followers and plans the downfall of God's newest creation: Adam and Eve. Drama ensues.
* ''Comments'': One of the better-known fanfics out there, Paradise Lost is most notable for its style and characterization. Like ''Literature/TheAeneid'', another influential fanfic, it is written as an epic poem. The descriptions of people, events, and places are excellent, though they are perhaps too descriptive. Satan, Adam, and Eve are remarkably fleshed out, and are given realistic motives and feelings.

''Literature/LambTheGospelAccordingToBiff'' by Creator/ChristopherMoore
* Recommended by @/{{Sessalisk}}
* ''Status'': Complete
* ''Synopsis'': The years of Jesus Christ's life that were not covered in ''Literature/TheBible''.

''Literature/TheRedTent'' by Anita Diamant
* Recommended by: {{Tropers/Narsil}}
* ''Status'': Complete
* ''Synopsis:'' The life of Dinah (a daughter of the Genesis patriarch Jacob), from her childhood with Jacob's wives and other children, through her tragic romance with Shechem, to her (extra-biblical) later life in Egypt

''Literature/TheDivineComedy'' by Dante Alighieri
* Recommended by {{Tropers/Divra}}
* ''Status'': Complete
* Synopsis: A self-insert fic, where the author takes a tour through the setting, guided by a childhood paragon of his.
* Comments: Also, like the previously mentioned ''Literature/ParadiseLost'', written in poetry form. It does very little to expand upon the main characters, but fleshes out the setting in wonderful ways, which is something fans will appreciate. It also tucks in some pointed jabs at well-known haters and several {{Big Name Fan}}s of the original appear as minor characters. Has contributed a lot to popular perception of the original. A bit wonky to read, because of the format, but well worth it.

''TheBookOfMormon'' by [[https://www.facebook.com/napacione/posts/816706895198822 Joseph Smith]]
* Recommended by {{Tropers/TitaniumDragon}}
* ''Status'': Complete
* Synopsis: The lost tribe of Israel comes to America in ancient times, and is later visited by UsefulNotes/{{Jesus}} himself.
* Comments: Clocking in at over 268,000 words, this story is intended as a sequel to the New Testament, intended to bring ancient America in on the action. Its FrameStory is that it was decoded from a set of golden plates with the help of an angel and a special device, revealing the secret history of Israelites in prehistoric America, the troubles they faced here, and Jesus coming to the Americas to deliver his message here as well. ArtisticLicenseHistory as other websites refute what Joseph Smith claims including Egyptologists. One of the books are [[https://bycommonconsent.com/2016/02/15/nephis-desert-island-book-isaiah-2-14-in-a-new-world-context-bom2016/ discussed]] as the followers are often GoshdangItToHeck as they don't even use the word "piss" and get torqued when one uses an f-strike. Crack about their use of [[https://www.wattpad.com/533252914-the-lies-about-mormonism-mormons-don%27t-watch-pg13 almost cussing]] and they have some responses like "my virgin ears been violated" especially by Petty Officer Nasty. The Faithful of The Book of Mormon are similar to TheFundamentalist when they respond to GonzoJournalism.

[[caption-width-right:180:The short story that appeared in 2008 was written by a writer that emerged from HomeschooledKids who appeared on The Bible fandom as [[https://youtu.be/5N61guGwym0 discussed]] by IgnoredAesop (Educated Everyman much older;) like the narrative in the Gospel account of the Crucifixion. MohsScaleOfViolenceHardness it would be about a 7 because if one reads the modern translations they portray it close to ThePassionOfTheChrist.]]
''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/4373282/1/ Through the Eyes of A Thief]]'' by [[https://www.fanfiction.net/u/1619696/bean21 Solus Christus]]
* Recommended by {{nickpacione}}
* ''Status'': Complete
* Synopsis: So this is it, then. [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Impenitent_thief I'll die today]]. I always thought I would die in some horrible, painful manner, but surely crucifixion must be the worst death....
* Comments: The thieves on the cross remain nameless, as according to the Gospel narrative one of them scoffs {{Jesus}} as he was just crucified. The wording she uses is from the JamesTheFirst (King James Version as the more [[https://www.christianity.com/church/church-history/timeline/1601-1700/the-king-james-authorized-version-11630051.html common version]] is from the 1760s) of the narrative as documented from the Aramaic Texts; Christ didn't speak King James English in the 16th Century. The narrative is told from a FirstPersonPerspective to that of TheTellTaleHeart by EdgarAllanPoe. The ShortStory is about 2000 words as it's in a similar narrative to how Poe wrote some of his more recognized short stories but it's a guess if she's had access to the classic tales of Poe -- it's powerful when paired up with [[https://frontlineartistcatalogue.bandcamp.com/track/the-messiah The Messiah]] from Bloodgood or the Tourniquet version which is a little crunchier in guitar tone. The story is a reference from [[https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Luke+23%3A39-43&version=AMP Luke 23:39-43]] as one may want to look up the AMP version to get the connection. Noted with the link to the author is her [[http://wwww.FictionPress.com FictionPress.com]] profile as some on FictionPress.com have accounts on both places. The story is StrawmanHasAPoint on [[https://www.quora.com/What-is-the-most-powerful-literature-you-have-written Quora.com]] and shared on [[https://www.facebook.com/groups/AnointedWriterSpotlight/permalink/924805781015873/ Anointed Writers Group]]. The group is noted to have a very high member account in the faith community -- about 29,827 members as the owner owns a few groups. According to the writer, when she made it public she had [[http://www.fictionratings.com Fiction Ratings]] to a T for teenagers because of the violence portrayed of the thieves on the cross. This might be one of the DarkerAndEdgier t-rated stories on the site, if one has [[https://www.pinterest.com/pin/160440805459856480/ pinterest]] give this one some traffic. The use of the 1700s modified King James Version would have AuthorAppeal to NineteenKidsAndCounting (or those within TheFundamentalist circles in North America. As they prop up on Wattpad too.) This one was different as she didn't parrot scripture but when reading the story you can see the reference from other translations; as the other aspects of The Book of Luke was academically discussed on Quora.

''Stories focused on the romantic relationships between the cast.''
Literature/LowlandsOfScotlandSeries by Liz Curtis Higgs
* Recommended by: @/{{Nocturna}}
* ''Status'': Complete
* Synopsis: The tale of Jacob, Leah, Rachel, and Dinah, set in the Scottish lowlands in 1791-1793 and 1810. The books are historically accurate and yet remarkably close to the original considering that fact.
* Pairings: Jacob/Leah, Jacob/Rachel, Dinah/Shechem
* Warnings: The fourth book contains non-graphic rape.
