The Elysian by Z Mistress

  • Recommended by: Snowy_Mass
  • Status: Ongoing
  • Synopsis: He sure wasn't made to be a hero but sometimes even the story of a sleazy, cold-hearted antagonist is worth being told. So here we have Cletus' story: How he got to Elysium, how he grew up and how he managed to ruin his own life, among others.
  • Pairing(s): Cletus/Goal, Goal/Rufus
  • Tags: Major Character Death, Teen+ story
  • Notes: Giving a POV to Cletus as our story's antagonist. Put on here as it's one of the stories still updating.

Butterfly by Quarter Past

  • Recommended by: Snowy_Mass
  • Status: Dormant; last updated October 2018
  • Synopsis: Berry has never left Rufus' side. Major spoilers for Deponia Doomsday and all previous parts. Takes place after Deponia Doomsday/Goodbye Deponia.
  • Pairing(s): Goal/Rufus (Though not explicitly yet because Rufus is still dead from Goodbye Deponia and Goal's trying to save him)
  • Tags: Graphic Depictions Of Violence, Major Character Death, Original Characters, Yet somehow rated G?
  • Notes: Out of the many "fixing the ending" stories this is arguably one of the best ones. Giving a gripping narrative involving Goal and Berry.

There is Always Hope by kadesc

  • Recommended by: Snowy_Mass
  • Status: Dead
  • Synopsis:


It seemed to be the one thing that Rufus had always carried with him, and what had impacted Goal the most during their adventures together, though for better or worse, she couldn’t really say. Whether it was getting to Elysium at all costs, relentlessly fighting for her affection, seeing every harebrained scheme of his to completion, taking down the Organon with only a small group of rebels, or saving her from the grip of death itself, he never seemed able to give up.

Until he did.

Now Goal is left to pick up the pieces without him, and among those pieces she finds something unexpected that will forever change her future. And the future of Elysium.

  • Pairing(s): Goal/Rufus
  • Tags: Depression, Major Spoilers, Grief, Unfortunate Cliffhangers
  • Notes: Another story dealing with the ending of Deponia, I personally found it better than it seems the author did.

From Rufus to RJ by mediasploshion

  • Recommended by: Snowy_Mass
  • Status: Completed
  • Synopsis: After the events of Doomsday, Goal travels around Deponia and finds an old cloning factory. She then tries to find a way to clone her boyfriend back to life.
  • Pairing(s): Goal/Rufus
  • Tags: Reviving the dead through cloning
  • Notes: One "Goal trying to bring back Rufus" story but with a twist that the clone of Rufus is an infant so now Goal becomes the child's mother. Not as weird as it sounds.

The Proposal by Tiitha
  • Recommended by: Snowy_Mass
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: While things are falling apart in Elysium, Cletus proposes to Goal while still attempting to assume the identity of Rufus.
  • Pairing(s): Goal/Cletus
  • Tags: Taking place after the ending of Goodbye Deponia, a fairly sweet story involving Goal and Cletus.

How well does it match the trope?
