Proof that the remaining 10% is worth dying for here:

These are recommendations made by Tropers for Blue Exorcist, 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 sexualnote  or non-canon territory. Some people just don't like it, and as we all know, Shipping is Serious Business.

Kizmet

  • Recommended by Fireminer & amythedancer
  • Synopsis: The author has created a series of fanfictions which all connect to a single AU in which All Myths Are True and the politics of Gehenna are intricate and ever-changing. He explores many aspects and "what-if"s of the manga which include (but are not limited to) a Genesis story of Satan and his lover, Yukio accidentally-on-purpose becoming a bad guy (see To be Good below), and how Rin became the new Hell King of the Kingdom of Fire. The AU begins with Yukio and Rin’s changed relationship and subsequent separation and expands from there.
  • Comment: One could say that no single author has ever poured more blood, sweat, and tears into an Ao no Exorcist AU like this, perhaps bar Superior Dimwit bellow. Kizmet literally created a new set of lore for the universe(s), from the various incarnations of Assiah and Gehenna until now, which connect a staggering number of pantheons from all over the world. His clear writing, intricate lore, and consistent, enjoyable characterization and character growth make each of Kizmet’s stories a satisfying reading experience.

SuperiorDimwit

  • Recommended by Fireminer
  • Synopsis: His main series is "The End of the Beginning", which detailed the days of Fujimoto Shiro from when he enrolled into True Cross Academy to the day he died. But there is also a number of shorts, which the most notable is a horror "A Christmas Carol"-inspired story.
  • Comment: Superior Dimwit has the ability to hook you up right from the first chapters. I can simply say that he is one of the best (if not the best) writer in the fandom right now - there has been no writer with a pen for psychological analysis as good as him. However, because of the story's structure and the writer's peculiar style, readers of "The End of the Beginning" may get lost by the time they reach over 100 chapters.

General Fics

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.

Eating is a Lot of Work by Fairytale-Warrior

  • Recommended by Lyra_Dhani

A ringing began in his ears, as loud as that time back in primary school when a classmate had swung a cricket bat into the side of his head. Something solid slammed against the more vulnerable flesh of his temple and with a startling lack of transition, Rin's vision went from white to black without him realizing.

  • Pairing(s): Eventual Rin/Ryuuji and Yukio/Renzou. Shiro/Mephisto.
  • Tags: Childhood, Letters, Alternate Universe - Canon Divergence, Konekomaru develops a strange friendship with... a special guest character, Slight Crossover with KHR, eventual slash, lots of fluff, Ryuuji and Rin being cute lil shits, Pen Pals, Slow Burn, the slowest of burns,
  • Comments: What looks to be like a series rewrite, the chapters start off short in the beginning. Sincerely is the story dedicated to Rin and Ryuuji and Until Next Time is the story dedicated to Yukio and Renzou. It starts with them as kids and follows their lives all the way up into current manga canon. The characterization is spot on and the story is detailed and realistic. It's. Crazy. It's so good. One of those kinds of fics that trick you in the beginning like it's a fluff fic of innocence but then gets really quality really fast and next thing you know, you've read 150k words. Seriously recommended.
