Proof that the remaining 10% is worth getting your heart cursed for.

These are recommendations made by tropers for Crypt of the NecroDancer fanfics, all of which have to be signed to stay on the page. After a few samples, you will be able to note the interests of the tropers recommending them, and judge whether you might be also interested in a certain 'fic.

Feel free to add a fanfic of your own to the list, but remember to use the template found herenote . 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.


Reviews of fics are encouraged, but if you choose to write one, please make it substantive, and give specific details about what you liked / disliked in the fic. If you want to give a fic a thumbs-up without writing a full review, you can add your troper handle to the Recommendations Line. Please refrain from posting "Comments" or Conversation in the Main Page though; that goes in the discussion page.

    Recommendations Template 
Title of the Fanfic by Author OR Fic Trope Page, by Author (Link)
  • Recommended by: Troper Name
  • Synopsis: What's the story about? Give here a brief summary of the plot. It would be also useful to point out in what moment of the series the story takes place. If it's a Gen Fic but it has some romantic elements, note here the characters involved too.
  • Pairing(s): If it's a Shipping Fic, list here the pairings that feature in the fic (warn here if it's het, male slash or female slash). If it's a Gen Fic, remove this line. To tell the difference between the two, notice if the focus of the fic is on a romantic relationship or if it focuses on the other aspects of the story. In case of doubt, classify the story according to the genres it's been tagged: the Romance tag for Shipping, absence of that tag for Gen Fic.
  • Tags: If any are known. This would be things like W.A.F.F., Lemon, Dark Fic, any known Crossovers etc.
Place a copy of the reviews code, found on index page, herenote .

Undeadly Melody by BulletNick

  • Recommended by: PaperLaur
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: A short threeshot from Melody's point of view describing the events of her death and revival, and her eventual decision to return to the crypt. This work puts you inside Melody's head, where her emotions are strong and real—both her love towards her family, and trepidation regarding her fate.
  • Pairing(s): [Incidental] Melody/Dorian

Harmony in Dorian by BulletNick

  • Recommended by: PaperLaur
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: A story following Dorian witnessing Melody's death and his subsequent, desperate search for the Golden Lute that led to him being turned into Dead Ringer and forced to fight his own daughter. Dorian's grief and conviction is palpable throughout this relatively short but well-written story, and all of the characters are portrayed extremely well, with canon events being expanded on as needed.
  • Pairing(s): Melody/Dorian

Familiar Dance by BulletNick

  • Recommended By: PaperLaur

Luckily, her family are more than willing to help her feel at home again, and her loving husband is eager to remind her of the good old days in this work of pure, adorable fluff.
  • Pairing(s): Melody/Dorian
  • Note: Also has fanart!
