Tiberium Wars by Peptuck

  • Recommended by Gentlemens Dame 883, Tacitus, corin, Gatomon 41, Latw PIAT, Premier 666, Shadow Dog, Discar. Jade Crisanthamum
  • Status: Dead
  • Synopsis: A novelisation of Command & Conquer: Tiberium Wars that vastly outdoes the official one.
  • Comments:
    • Tacitus: This guy's good. Seriously - I spotted a handful of sentences with redundant descriptors, but aside from that this is writing that could compete with Dan Abnett. He knows the setting, he knows the hardware, he knows me, you'll forget you're reading fanfiction. Oh yeah, he also has a present for ya.
      • corin: The author himself has said in one of the later chapters he was heavily inspired by the Gaunt's Ghosts series. The story has a lot of throwbacks to Warhammer 40,000 too, like GDI using Armored Fist squads, the Brotherhood of Nod addressing one another like Space Marines, and a big one to the Ghosts books with the Nod commander's name being Rawne.
      • Darth Walrus: The only flaw I can think of is that certain run-on sentences are a bit of a mouthful. Well, that and that it's more or less dead now.
      • Premier 666: "That was left-handed." Brilliant.
      • Jade Crisanthamum: Fiction written by someone with an actual grasp of military tactics and procedure, and great reading regardless. A must read.

Full Red Jacket by Srelex

  • Recommended by Obssesed Nuker
  • Status: Dead
  • Synopsis: A story of the war of RA3, from the perspective of soldiers from different sides.
  • Comments: A series of semi-related one-shots, some with reoccurring characters, taking place chronologically throughout the events of Red Alert 3. The writing is solid and the author manages to present the rather ridiculous game mechanics and storyline in a more serious and believable light, although there is still plenty of hilarity to be found. A nice variety of combat situations take place, so fans of naval, air, and mechanized warfare can all find something here. All-in-all, a decent read to kill the time.
    • Sadly, seems to be a dead fic, as it hasn't updated since 2011.

Bird of Prey by Z98

  • Recommended by Ingsmasher
  • Synopsis: Set during Tiberian Sun and Firestorm, follows the life of a GDI soldier who is infected by Tiberium and slowly starts becoming a Mutant.
  • Comments: This is a really great depiction of a man out of his element, as he ends up having to live in a Forgotten community while at the same time simply trying to survive against the elements and the war raging between GDI and Nod. Eventually he must make a choice whether his loyalties lie with his GDI roots or his fellow Mutants. Even features some of the missions from the GDI campaign in both TS and FS.

Under The Shadow by Copperstandard

  • Recommended by Crackedfoundation
  • Synopsis: Follows two very different GDI commanders and their forces as their world is plunged into the Third Tiberium War, focusing on missions not seen in canon.
  • Comments: A great blend of intense, bloody action and thoughtful character work. The reader is challenged on whether to sympathize with the intense, hardass Steel Talons commander Parnell or the humane, compassionate ZOCOM commander Liang as they face near-impossible odds in their own distinct ways.

Starcraft AU: Tiberium Galaxy by avatar-of-kane

  • Recommended by Steel Dusk
  • Status: Dead
  • Synopsis: A StarCraft/C&C crossover alternate universe fanfic set after the events of Tiberian Twilight and during the events of Starcraft II.
  • Comments: This fanfic mainly focuses on Kane after his ascension, finding himself in a strange new world and recreates the Brotherhood of Nod while at it. Meanwhile, the Terran Dominion and the Protoss are baffled by the discovery of mysterious green crystals, which would attract some of Kane's old enemies...Expect lots of action! This fanfic also contains Unit Profiles and 'Unit Versus' sections which compares C&C units to Starcraft units and which one of them will be more likely to win in a fight.

The Conversion Bureau: Tiberium Wars by Jack of Tales

  • Recommended by Lamborghini Racer 640
  • Status: Dormant
  • Synopsis: A The Conversion Bureau story where Celestia invades the Earth of the Tiberium universe. The Barrier appears right in the middle of a battle between GDI and Nod.
  • Comments: This fic explores how both GDI and Nod fight the against the pony armies as well as showing how the Equestrians react to their arsenals such as the Mammoth Mk.II walkers. After sustaining heavy losses initially, GDI turns the tide by shattering The Barrier with the Ion Cannon, which from there GDI and Nod fight the Equestrians on their own turf. It is unclear however if GDI and Nod had formed an alliance of any sort.

Renegade by Peptuck

  • Recommended by corin
  • Status: Dormant
  • Synopsis: A Mass Effect/Command & Conquer: Tiberian Series Crossover/Alternate Universe fic that replaces the Mass Effect Earth with Tiberium Earth, with GDI taking over the role of the Systems Alliance, that follows the plot of the original game.
  • Comments: Inspired by a discussion on story thread here.) Essentially serves as a novelization of the game that explores how different everything would be if GDI replaced the Alliance, and how their technology and Tiberium would dramatically influence politics, relations, and history, i.e. Nod intervenes in the slaver attack on Elysium, GDI goes to war with the Batarian Hegemony, and Akuze was actually a Scrin attack, among other things. The story is still relatively new, however, so there's no idea when it will be updated.

OperationForgingSteel by licklicklick123

  • Recommended by Vinnymoneyho
  • Status: ongoing
  • ''Synopsis: An American General goes to a new world with the simple task of setting up a military base, but this task doesn't seem to be so simple, when creatures of the dark, otherworldly human life, terrorism, and possible war come into play.
  • Comments: This fic explores a universe where the U.S from Command and Conquers generals finds a portal to the world of Remnant before getting into a big fight with the White Fang. It shows that no matter what mystical magic powers the people of Remnant have, they are horribly outgunned by the Americans.

A World in Flames by catnip513.

  • Recommended by Drgyen
  • Status: Dormant
  • Synopsis: A Code Geass/C&C Alternate Universe fic. Due to the actions of the European Union and the Holy Britannian Empire, three new factions are founded in the Code Geass universe. When Britannia invades Japan, it triggers a series of events that will change the Code Geass world forever.
  • Comments: Certain bits from the C&C franchise are adapted into this fic such as the Soviet Union repelling Britannian annexation (and preventing the formation of Euro Britannia), Australia and several Oceanic nations forming the precursor to GDI in response to Britannian expansionism, and the Global Liberation Army becoming the face of international terrorism in which its members includes Kallen and Ohgi.

Red Alert: The Dawn of Man - Redux by Tallman7

  • Recommended by Tankred
  • Status: Dormant
  • Crossover: Red Alert 2/Mass Effect.
  • Synopsis: The end of the Soviet/Allied war came, but it didn't end the story. This is the story of how Humanity was finally united against a greater threat, and afterwards.
  • Comments: It details a scenario where the events that caused Red Alert 3 was averted by the Soviet Commander known only as "the Bear" (who turns out to be a woman), who upon realizing that Communism was a stupid idea and lacking any intentions of letting the war continue, defected to eternal rival and the Allied Forces' preeminent commander (known only as "The Eagle") with the Time Machine and a handful of loyal Soviets. Although the road turns out to be rocky and sometimes narrow (at one point requiring the Eagle and the Bear, now the political leaders of their respective factions, to blindside the whole world with a sudden announcement of their impending marriage in order to end the rapidly worsening Cold War), the Allies and the Soviets just barely end up getting along when faced with what is basically a light A.I. uprising. The story has an even progression rate, well-written and accurate characters along with good descriptions that makes it hard to put down.
  • Conclusion: If you didn't like how EA screwed up the Red Alert continuity any more than I did, and want to see the marriage of Allied and Soviet technology used against the Mass Effect races, this one is for you.

Tiberium: The Fires of Terra by bluerockmen.

  • Recommended by Drgyen
  • Status: Dormant; last updated November 2018
  • Synopsis: War has just be declared after a terrorist attack wiped out the leaders of the United Nations between the Earth Alliances and PLANT but the first shot has yet to be fired. So what will happen when suddenly another UN organization from another reality arrives unforeseen. Will the ideals of the UN hold true or will there be nothing but war in the future.
  • Comments: Crossover with Mobile Suit Gundam SEED.

Red Alert: Mental Effect by Mental Omega

  • Recommended by Varaxar
  • Crossover with: Mass Effect and the mod Mental Omega, more particularly Mental Omega 2.0's storyline.
  • Status: Dead (last updated February 2017)
  • Synopsis: After the Soviets win in Yuri's revenge, Yuri is brought back by his last, most zealous followers from the Cretaceous and conquers the world; driving the Allies and Soviets to Mars. After a series of interplanetary wars that parallel the Tiberium saga culminating in the Scrin invasion, the Alliance; formed of the Allies and Soviets, leaves the solar system and forms its own state elsewhere. Many years later, the Citadel comes into contact with man's divided factions, and then things start getting strange.
  • Comments: With the exception of the hapless mooks, most everyone seems to be portrayed as reasonably competent and able. In a break from most mass effect A Us, there are actually two Shepards. Female shepard is portrayed by Catalina Cioban; an Epsilonist girl orphaned in a raid on her home world. Male Shepard is represented by Wolfgang von Schafhausen; an alliance N7 commando from a military family who's surprisingly sensitive for a military man. The story heavily features outright zany elements in ways only red alert can, with talking dolphins, guitar aficionado hulking cybernetic monstrosities, and is positively crammed with little references to not only Red Alert 2, but to just about every part of the C&C series, from the well known to the obscure and even a number of the more well known C&C mods. Familiar faces pop up in unexpected places, and the story is complemented by an extensive cast of new characters. It's definitely worth a look if you're hoping to see something a little different, and it does its best to avoid human wank. It's got sharp action, a great appreciation for scale, solid concepts and characters that are so far quite interesting.

Stories focused on the romantic relationships between the cast.

A Fourth World Country in The War of Three Powers by mttspiii

  • Recommended by general_tiu, GuardianTempest
  • Synopsis: A faux history of a Fourth-World Country the Philippines, after being bumped down from Third-World country status due to the Empire of the Rising Sun during and after the faux War of the Three Powers.
  • Comments: This is a hilarious take on Red Alert 3, not concentrating on the Allies, Soviets, and the Japanese, but in the Philippines as it has to deal with all three. The Philippine nation has to gather a guerrilla army against the Empire with weapons that were both hilarious and deadly. Better if you are a student of Filipino history and definitely not for the politically correct or the hard core C&C fan who cannot stand humor.
