* ''Fanfic/WhereTalentGoesOnVacation''
** Tatsuki and Taiga Tachibana, who are twin sisters, suggest that their classmates call them by their first names to make it clear who they're talking to.
** Himeno Himemiya and Kanae Tsukimura, the latter of whom is the former's maid, also use first names on each other, despite using last names and "-san" on most of their classmates. Tsukimura calls Himemiya "Himeno-sama"(although Himemiya wishes Tsukimura wouldn't use "-sama" on her) while Himemiya calls Tsukimura "Kanae".
** Sayuri Sasaki asks permission to use first names with those she meets, but respects the wishes of anyone who says no. Tsukimura soon starts using Sasaki's first name.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Fanfic/RoadsideAssistance'', Yang disapproves of Weiss (or, apparently, most people) calling her "Ms. Xiao Long". Several minutes later, Weiss finds herself acquainted with Yang enough that she tells her not to address her as "Ms. Schnee".


* In ''Fanfic/DespairsLastResort'', while fist name basis is generally the norm (except for Monokuma, Chiyo, Arata and Kazumi), there are a few cases in which the switch to using first names can be significant. While the ultra-polite Chiyo usually calls her classmates by their last names and uses "Mr." or "Ms." as appropriate, she calls her ChildhoodFriend Kumiko by her first name. Kazumi starts calling her best friend Shizuka by her first name [[spoiler:shortly before the latter is executed]], and Arata calls Takara by her first name as a show of respect after [[spoiler:she manages to convict him for murder]].

* ''Fanfic/WhereTalentGoesToDie''
** Ami Yuuki refers to all her classmates highly informally, using their first names and "-kun" for boys or "-chan" for girls.
** The use of first names is shown as proof of Kaori Miura's evolving relationship with Sae Edogawa. Shortly after meeting Edogawa, Miura calls her "Sensei" as a form of respect for her favorite author. At the end of Chapter II, Miura, having resolve to treat Edogawa as more of an equal, starts calling her "Edogawa-san." Early on in Chapter IV, Miura and Edogawa switch to calling each other "Sae" and "Kaori" without honorifics, signifying how close they've become.
** Somewhat similarly, Kuro Akasaka and Komaki Katsura start calling the others by their first names and the "-chan" honorific in Chapter III.

* In ''Fanfic/KarmaInRetrograde'', Ryouta insists that people refer to him by his given name rather than his surname, Todoroki.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Fanfic/MyHuntsmanAcademia'', greeting and social conventions follow the western-style of RWBY, so Izuku gets referred to by his first name a lot more than in his home series, as do Tenya, Tsuyu, Shouto, and Katsuki. Only their teachers, Tenya, and Weiss refer to them by their surnames, reflecting their more distant and professional relationship. Weiss quickly loosens up enough to refer to Izuku and the others by their given names while Tenya remains uptight until others others remind him that he doesn't have to be so formal.
