Proof that the remaining 10% is worth being called a Dirty Pair for here:

These are recommendations made by Tropers for Dirty Pair Fan Fics, all of which have to be signed to stay on the page. Feel free to add a fanfic of your own to the list, but remember to use the template found here.

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.


You can also add to the current recommendations if you want. Refrain from posting Conversation in the Main Page though; that goes in the discussion page.

Conversion from the "Comments" section to the "Reviews" option is underway. If you are adding a fic, please help us out and use the new template-format on the Fanfic Recommendations Index Page. Please start moving your comments to the reviews sections as we will soon start removing them.

The works of Ryan Matthews.

  • Recommended by Binaroid
  • Ryan Matthews posted the first English-language anime fanfic on Usenet, Big Bang, in June 1991. In the decade following, he and Larry Mann managed to make themselves and the Dirty Pair household names in the fanfic world. Matthews retired from writing fanfic in 2002, but he is not forgotten. Warning: Various incarnations of Marty Stu do show up in most of his stories - reader beware.

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.

Experiment 101-E by Larry Mann.

  • Synopsis: The tale of 3WA trouble consultant Deirdre's partnership with the experimental bioroid Trouble Consultant, Shasti.
  • Comments: This is one of the first fanfics released on the Internet about the Dirty Pair — specifically, Adam Warren's Amerimanga version. This is almost a textbook example of Draco in Leather Pants for villainess-to-be Shasti, but this also has the effect of adding more depth to her fall.

Should Old Acquaintance Be Forgot by DB Somner

  • Synopsis: Kei and Yuri arrive at a space station to find it completely lifeless... except for a monster from Kei's past. Crossover.
  • Comments: A fascinating "Hey, what if..." fic. The only annoying thing about it is that it ends with a Sequel Hook promising a plot arc that was never continued. — Jakes Brain

Stories focused on the romantic relationships between the cast.
