Authors, and Websites


  • Recommended by Monkeypizzasonic
  • Writes some wonderful Cable/Deadpool one-shots and multi-chapter stories, archived here.
    • Let Slip The Dogs of War, inspired by the alternate universe seen in C&D 15 where Cable became War.
    • Good Intentions, a PWP that eventually evolved a plot; unfinished.
    • Summers'son, a high school AU with Nate and Wade. And it's good.
    • One-shot Post-Second Coming fic, or "A meditation on the inevitability of life, the meaninglessness of death and what a total jerk you were about it, by Wade Wilson". Fluff.

Cable and Deadpool Kinkmeme

  • Recomended by Monkeypizzasonic
  • Mostly slash of the Cable/Deadpool variety, but a lot of other people get in on the action as well.

General Fics

Deadpool's Awesome Fanfiction by Emeraldjewel

  • Recommended by Love Is Weird
  • Status: Dead
  • Synopsis: The merc with a mouth, in his usual awareness of the continuity, realizes that he is in a fanfiction and decides to correct some common issues with the medium.
  • Comments: This is Deadpool at his fan fic best. He's totally in-character, it has a Parody Sue (who gets killed, of course, this is Deadpool we're talking about), and he's hyper-aware. Twilight-bashers, go forth to the second chapter. PG-13, it has guns.

From the Mouths of Babes by CAPSING

  • Recommended by: ThisIsRidiculous
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: “There’s a guy who’s been flirting with me.” “Mhmm,” Ned turns to Peter, swallowing his bite. “Is he hot?” (Or: Deadpool starts hitting on Spider-Man, unaware he’s a minor; ignorance turns up not to bring any bliss to either of them.)

Shipping Shipping Fics

Nemesis by lex-n-karu

  • Recommended by Madkatter, redbess
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: Movieverse Wolverine/Deadpool. No, keep reading. Seriously.
  • Comments: The piece linked is the first in a series, which this troper highly recommends reading all of. Lex-n-karu's writing is hilarious and their characterizations are believable and nuanced. Hell, she makes the pairing plausible. Read it!
    • Comments: Madkatter has it right, PLEASE don't let the pairing deter you. Most of the slash is just implied and there's nothing more explicit than some kissing and groping. It's funny, terrifying, heartbreaking and satisfying.
    • Comments: This is really well done, highly recommended!

Mail Day by anonymous

  • Recommended by anonymousEDward, feral
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: From the Cable and Deadpool kinkmeme - Deadpool begins to receive some interesting mail on Providence. Cable/Deadpool.
  • Comments: This fic is freaking hilarious, no matter how many times I read it. It's just so ... you've just got to read it.

Reversed Roles by Tintenschwert

  • Recommended by Kereea
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: Deadpool's the sane one.
  • Comments: A combination crack and shipping fic, it has a sort of Slice of Life (on some random mission) with Deadpool as sane and Cable as insane. while it's short -leaving several aspects of the sanity swap unexplored- it is still very good and a fun read of Cable x Deadpool shippers.
    • It does, however, leave out why Deadpool is sane. Cable was apparently driven nuts by power overload in his childhood but even that is flimsy. It's just an introspective/fluff piece.

Marvel Adventures Cable and Deadpool (and Hope)

  • Recommended by Monkeypizzasonic
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: Based in the happy and positive MA universe; little Hope spends a day in New York with Daddy Nate and Daddy Wade. Special guest stars and massive fluff ensues.
  • Comments: I cannot even begin to describe how damn cute this is. The author says "This was mainly written in my pink-papered Tinkerbell notebook, using a Hello Kitty pen, while watching Lilo & Stitch." It's that kind of fic.

How Wonderful Life Is (Now You're In The World) by marvelousshipper

  • Recommended by bookwormgal
  • Status: Dead; last updated May 2018
  • Pairings: slow-building Wade Wilson/Peter Parker
  • Synopsis: (Post Original Sin) Wade decides to hang up his mask in favor of settling down and raising his daughter. It actually goes slightly better than expected.

Just Like A Child by Snapjack

  • Recommended by: ThisIsRidiculous
  • Status: Complete
  • Pairings: Vanessa Carlysle/Wade Wilson
  • Synopsis: “Honey,” Wade calls over his shoulder without taking his eyes off their visitor. “Why is there a teenage mutant in our breakfast nook? Not that I’m not happy to see you,” he says to Negasonic, who raises her eyebrows owlishly. Vanessa comes out of the bedroom and hooks her chin over Wade’s shoulder. “Do you think she heard me getting my spanking?” he whispers. “Because that was *private* noise.” “I don’t know,” Vanessa says. “But she looks like she needs some coffee and pancakes, don’t you think?” Negasonic grins. It’s scary as fuck.

Blah Blah Vortex by Rave

  • Recommended by: ThisIsRidiculous
  • Status: Complete
  • Pairings: Peter Parker/Wade Wilson
  • Synopsis: They were in another timeline. It happened occasionally. Who even knew how Wade got involved. He was just trying to show Darcy how many tacos he could fit in his mouth (six), and then blammo: Big flash of light, whirling space vortex, the indescribable sensation of the universe contracting with you inside it to the size of a single electron, and then everybody was spat out in a heap on the sidewalk of a place that looked like — but probably wasn’t — New York, and all of Wade’s tacos de sesos were lost to the interdimensional void. “Nooo,” Wade whispered, heartbroken. “Tacos.”

Wannabe by space_kid

  • Recommended by: ThisIsRidiculous
  • Status: Complete
  • Pairings: Peter Parker/Wade Wilson
  • Synopsis: "Holy shit, where's our safeword? Papaya? Papaya!" The man yelped. Peter walked forward and stomped on the gun to ensure it was broken. He looked up. "How long have you been following me?" "Oh god.." the man groaned, "do you count weekends? Because if you do I think you'll be truly horrified. And while I sure as fuck should be quaking in my CareBear boxers, might I just say you're looking as dashing as ever, Spidey-“

All About Chemistry by TwiceBakedPotato

  • Recommended by: ThisIsRidiculous
  • Status: Complete
  • Pairings: Peter Parker/Wade Wilson
  • Synopsis: After serving his 20 years in the Marine Corps, Wade Wilson is cashing in his GI Bill and going back to college. He feels like the old man on campus, but that doesn't matter. He likes his classes. He likes learning. And he especially likes his Chemistry professor with the messy brown hair.

morning in the burned house by antivenom

  • Recommended by: ThisIsRidiculous
  • Status: Complete
  • Pairings: Peter Parker/Wade Wilson
  • Synopsis: Wade’s got a defense mechanism. Grin and bear it. But the thing is, Wade’s angry into his bones. (Or, this is what happens when a seemingly unassuming, run-of-the-mill hit gets personal)

New Beginnings by Smokeycut

  • Recommended by: ThisIsRidiculous
  • Status: Complete
  • Pairings: Ellie Phimister/Yukio
  • Synopsis: In the wake of Deadpool 2, Yukio and Negasonic think back to how it all began.

Crossover Crossovers

Deadpool's New Job. by Megamatt09 (Harry Potter Crossover)

  • Recommended by Faso
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: Deadpool receives a job as Argus Filch's Assistant Caretaker at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Features much insanity, hijinks, bedlam, and shameless destruction of the fourth wall, all brought to you by everyone's favorite mercenary. Pure insidious crack.
  • Comments: This troper hasn't been interested in the Harry Potter franchise for years, but it was still entertaining to see Deadpool be thrusted into what begins as (in my opinion) pretty close to canon in terms of characterization, only for everyone (and I do mean everyone) to devolve into utter insanity come the end. Serves as a Spiritual Successor of sorts to Thinking In Little Green Boxes, only not quite as funny.

Dead Note by CreamCheeseAlchemist (Death Note Crossover)

  • Recommended by feral
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: Deadpool meets Light Yagami. 'Nuff said.
  • Comments: And this, class, is what we call snark.

A Dog, A Boy, And A Merc by The Jonny T Factor (Adventure Time Crossover)

Deadpool vs. Equestria by Live Light (My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic Crossover)

  • Recommended by nightelf37
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: Deadpool has found himself in Equestria. He isn't very happy about being in a place that's too happy, but he is trying to fit in with everypony. He makes friends and enemies, and confuses the hell out of everything. Will he be able to find a way home? Will he be stuck there? And if so, will he be a good citizen, or bring about the end of Equestria as we know it?
    • "You know, I don't do that to EVERYWHERE I go, you didn't have to mention that. You're lucky you're safe behind your little laptop screen or wherever the hell you're using this from. If you destroy my image completely in here, I will not hesitate to strangle ya through the-"
    • Do you wish for a story or not?
    • "Fine."
    • So let it be said... so let it... be done.

Thinking In Little Green Boxes by DireSquirrel (Harry Potter Crossover)

  • Recommended by Comartemis, ShadowAI, Sen, Fyrewyre, feral, Robinton
  • Status: Dormant
  • Synopsis: On the night baby Harry was supposed to go to the Dursleys, someone screwed up the addresses and dropped him off at 4 Privy Drive, currently inhabited by one Wade Wilson. Ten years later, Harry gets his Hogwarts letter.
    “Don’t worry, this can’t possibly be as bad as the time he stole Dr. Doom’s credit card and bought everything under the sun.”
    In Latveria, a certain monarch was looking at his visa bill.
    "Who dares defile DOCTOR DOOM'S credit score?"
  • Comments: Yes. Harry Potter as raised by the Merc With a Mouth himself. The world will never be sane again.
    • ShadowAI: I thought this would be a delightful read over lunch break at work and I was laughing so hard I almost choked on my cookie. It gets a little flat toward the second half and requires a very extensive knowledge of the Marvel comic universe to fully understand. That said its a hillarious Crack Fic that's worth a glance if you have time to kill.
      • Sen: I laughed pretty much from start to finish, so much so I can't decide which part of the whole thing I found the funniest (right now it's a tie between Harry's early years, the Communist Manifesto and Harry using Luke, I Am Your Father as a distraction). Loved it even though I'm no fanfic guy, don't care much for Harry Potter and I haven't read enough comics to know about all the Marvel references thrown around.
    • LoveIsWeird: ...Wow. Yes, the world seems a lot better with Deadpool as Harry's sort-of dad.
  • Fyrewyre: (Laughs madly) Oh, man... Thanks for that. Also, it has its own page now.
