The Duology Of Nicholas Andersen is a two-part story written by Agent Kamera. The story follows the adventures of aspiring young author Brian Hawke and his most beloved character, Nicholas Andersen. The first story, War Of A Thousand Worlds, is set in Brian's dreams, and deals with a conflict breaking out between the good-aligned characters of various stories and their evil-aligned counterparts after the murder of a young girl disrupts the until-then peaceful relations with them. Both Brian and Nicholas must work together to stop this conflict before it escalates into a full-blown well as deal with a traitor in their midst.

The second story, The Falcon Writer, is set in the work's "real world", a transplanted version of Miraculous Ladybug with the setting moved to a London 20 Minutes into the Future. Here, Brian must team up with both Ladybug and Chat Noir to stop a new giver of powers, the mysterious Falcon Writer. It's still under development and you can find it here

A non-canon prequel story, Tales of a Reset Mind, expands on Nico's backstory, and is set in a version of Inside Out.
