Proof that the remaining 10% is worth still flying for here:

These are recommendations made by Tropers for Blackadder, all of which have been signed. After a few samples, you will be able to judge whether you might be interested in the 'fic, based on who recommended it. No-name recommendations will be Zapped!. Nobody would back up the rec. Discussion of the recommendation is welcome on the discussion page. As such discussion is important, do remember to add the discussion page to the watchlist, if need be.


Do warn when a fanfic may head into non-canon territory, and for shipping fics, please list the pairings involved — as we all know, Shipping is Serious Business.

General Fics

King and Country, by Thesseli

  • Recommended by Belphegor
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: Captain Blackadder needs more than just a cunning plan to get his command back...
  • Era: Blackadder Goes Forth (World War I).
  • Comments: Solid story, very in-character, and fitting the more subdued but cynical humour of series 4.

Blackadder: Serpent of the Seven Seas by bragg247

  • Recommended by Tiggerific
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: Join Captain Edmund Blackadder and the crew of the S.S. Flotsam, as they sail the Seven Seas in search of treasure, and maybe even a spare brain for Baldrick.
  • Comments: You'd think this is a lost script for an unaired era. Very in-character and utterly hilarious.

Shipping Fics

Spectacularly Badly Wrong, by Rowen-Redford

  • Recommended by Belphegor
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: Sometimes Darling loathes Blackadder. Sometimes he doesn't. An appendix to "General Hospital", in which Blackadder is considerably surprised, Darling is slightly tipsy, and Nurse Mary is not shot. Contains slash.
  • Era: Blackadder Goes Forth (World War I).
  • Pairing: Blackadder/Darling.
  • Comments: This troper usually doesn't read much slash, but this story is a definite must-read. Dialogue and narration alternate between completely deadpan and pants-wettingly hilarious, the characters' inner voices (especially Blackadder's) lose no time pointing out the absurdity of both general and specific situations, and there are sentences like "He wore the glazed, horrified, completely and utterly discombobulated look of someone who had unwarily eaten a spoonful of Baldrick's signature dish, Wasp Surprise." And, surprisingly, a happy ending after a fashion.
