Added DiffLines:

* ''Fanfic/ChildrenOfRemnant'': Winter reveals that after her mother's death, it was Kali who stepped in to comfort her and help fill the gap that Willow's death left behind. As a result, Winter has complete trust in her abilities and intelligence.

* In the genderbend one shots of [[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10264509/228/Tales-of-Fairies Tales of]] [[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10264509/550/Tales-of-Fairies Fairies]], Aquarius is one to [[GenderFlip Luca Heartfillia]], taking the role of a surrogant mother after his real mother's death and his father becoming distant. She is responsible for training him to use self-defense with his whip, and often disapproves of the girls that come near her "precious boy" like Natsu.


** Carol is noted to be consistently searching for a better father-figure, since her own father is an [[AbusiveParents emotionally abusive]] StayInTheKitchen type, which is why she latches on to her CoolUncle, [[Series/StargateSG1 Jack O'Neill]], and later, [[spoiler: Steve Rogers, her great-grandfather]]. The former reciprocates when he can, but he's rarely around New York, while the latter is initially deeply shocked to find out that they're related (the fact that he's less than twice her age, in terms of lived experience, doesn't help). Once he processes it, though, he takes up the mantle with determination and kindness, encouraging her in her dreams, supporting her when she's upset (in one case, by providing a 'Thor-sized' bucket of [[TrademarkFavoriteFood Rocky Road ice-cream]]), and playing PapaWolf. As in, at one point in the sequel, she and Harry get kidnapped by a RenegadeRussian group. His response is to calmly consider this, tell Thor to get his temper under control, then ''literally kick down the doors of the Kremlin'' to demand them back.

* ''Fanfic/RainbowDoubleDashsLunaverse:''
** Trixie and Princess Luna, though unlike Twilight Sparkle and Celestia theirs is more of a parent and rebellious teenager relationship (complete with Trixie beginning the series acting out to get back at Luna). Doesn't mean they don't care about one another though - Luna utterly panics when she thinks Trixie has possibly been killed.
** The non-continuity fic ''Nightmares Yet to Come'' has Thesis and Midnight. Thesis being a child created by magical mishap involving Trixie and Twilight, and she considers them the closest thing she has to mothers, but it's Midnight who is her legal guardian, claiming she is her sister (Thesis being too young to catch on to how much this is blatant BS). That said, [[spoiler:it's shown Midnight is involved with the ponies who caused the incident that created Thesis, so her actual relation to the kid could be closer than Trixie or Thesis know.]]

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Fanfic/BlueMoon'', Giles recalls his own bond with Buffy when reading about Francesca, a vampire slayer who was captured, turned and killed by the Volturi, as the diaries of Francesca's Watcher, Sir Richard Gladwin, make it clear that he had a similar relationship with Francesca to Giles's bond with Buffy. [[spoiler:Francesca clearly reciprocated this affection; even after she faked her death to escape the Volturi, when she learned that Sir Gladwin was dying, she went to see him despite the risk so that she could assure him that she had survived and was happy]].

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Fanfic/OnceUponASupernaturalTime'', Dean Winchester swiftly ends up becoming this to Henry Mills as his relationship with Emma develops, to [[spoiler:the extent that, after Henry meets his real father for the first time, Henry explicitly states that he wishes that ''Dean'' was his father]].


* Not shown directly in ''Fanfic/GinnyWeasleyDoubleLife'', but Milikanís flashbacks reveal that she took on a parental role for one of her past servants while the girlís parents were on holiday and her only guardians were an aunt and uncle who occasionally visited. Milikanís influence compelled the girl to become less of a rebellious brat, lose some weight and be more polite to her parents even after Milikan left.



* In the ''Series/{{Castle}}'' fic "[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/7176396/1/Of-Finding-Innocence Of Finding Innocence]]", while the main focus is Kate Beckett forming a relationship with Richard Castle while she's still an officer and he's writing Derrick Storm, equal importance is given to Kate's developing role as Alexis's second mother figure. While Alexis never forgets that Meredith is her biological mother, Kate is an important maternal influence in Alexis's life when Meredith just 'forgets' to be there for her daughter.

After learning about the boy's abusive father, Otonashi wanted to adopt Noda so he and Kanade can give him a happier life.

Akira/Ren, often because the latter's parents rejected him after the false accusation.
* In an inverse of a canon, ''Webcomic/Persona5AdultConfidantAU'' has [[AgeLift Futaba being the adoptive mother for Sojiro]]. While they bicker occasionally, it's clear the two care for each other, [[spoiler:enough that Sojiro is against stealing her heart out of fear of her becoming a soulless husk as the previous Palace rulers have]].
