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.

Nekekur Watches Symphogear by Nekekur

  • Recommended by cromartie
  • Synopsis: Tumblr user Nekekur watches through all of Symphogear and catalogues her reaction to the series as she watches.
  • Comments: A live-watch blog, similar to Shadowjack Watches Sailor Moon but in a slightly different format. A hilarious look at Symphogear through the eyes of someone who's never seen any of it before. Currently watching G. Sadly, the Tumblr itself is defunct.

Stories focused on the romantic relationships between the cast.

Operation: Love Love Idol Connection DESS! by Xesphanite

  • Recommended by cromartie
  • Pairing: Maria/Tsubasa, background Kirika/Shirabe and Hibiki/Miku
  • Advertisement:
  • Synopsis: When Kirika and Shirabe stumble upon an article regarding Tsubasa with a new beau, the two would not stand for it for they firmly believe that Maria should be the one to be with Tsubasa. They make it their life-long mission to get the two idols together. Or they try to anyways.
  • Comments: Kirika and Shirabe play matchmaker and Hilarity Ensues. A very funny fic, with the benefit of being one of the few complete Symphogear fics outside of one-shots.

undeserving of a title by weatherflonium

  • Recommended by cromartie
  • Pairing: Ogawa/Genjuro, one-sided Ver/Genjuro
  • Synopsis: Returning transfer student Shinji just wants to take his dashing childhood friend Genjuro for a night on the town, but must contend with the devious and jealous Ver. Fujitaka just wants it to be over.
  • Comments: The definitive Symphogear Troll Fic. It's not very long, but the (very deliberate) insanity is a good laugh.

Stories made with 4 tablespoons of crushed hopes, about 20 grams of broken dreams, 2 teaspoons of liquid fear, a dash of suffering, and a pinch of despair. Dilute with 2 1/2 cups of tears borne of a broken heart, and let simmer on medium heat for 5 minutes. Aerate with 3 canisters of bottled screams before serving.

Guilty Sister by KiramekiSparkle

  • Recommended by ChrysopoeiaX5
  • Status: Ongoing
  • Synopsis: Starts off with the same premise as XDU's Innocent Sister event. Maria travels to an Alternate Universe where her sister survives. She meets familiar faces on her journey and learns that meddling in the affairs of another world might be more trouble than expected.
  • Pairing: Hibiki/Miku is the main pairing we see. Others may be mentioned but rarely focused on.
  • Comments:
    • As the section header says, this is a Dark Fic. Outside of Serena being alive, miracles just don't seem to happen here. The author has the more grim elements of Maria rise to the surface. While they do draw from canon sources, the exploration of Maria's dark side can be uncomfortable for fans of the pink-haired idol.
    • Naturally, in true Dark Fic fashion, we meet some of the other world's counterparts to the main cast. If you want to see a Hibiki who isn't happy, this fic is a good read.

How well does it match the trope?
