The Trio de Dangers Four Hour Recruitment Adventure by Mr Tye Dye.

  • Recommended by: KrspaceT
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: The Tournament of Power will begin in four hours, and Universe 9's team still consists of only three warriors. The Trio de Dangers have one-sixth of a day to find seven other fighters to join them, or their universe will face disqualification - and immediate erasure.
  • Commentary: Given Dragon Ball Super does not have a separate section, figured this goes here. Beyond the simple rarity of a fic focusing on the Trio de Danger, it is a good read on top of it.

With no threats remaining Trunks chose to alienate himself from this version of himself and made a peaceful life with Mai on an island far away from battle. A few years later mysterious beings attacked Earth and the resident Trunks of this timeline faced them alone. Trunks was too late to save his other native timeline self, who had never even unlocked the state of Super Saiyan 2, and without the Dragon Balls to revive the fallen Trunks his guilt over his inaction only intensified. Was he right in trying to alienate himself from this timeline as he had done? Did he really deserve to live in peace with Mai? Soon enough an enraged Beerus, accompanied by Whis, appeared before Trunks to explain the situation...

    Alternate Universe Fics 
"Only Time Will Tell" by mozarteffect

  • Recommended by: Ariachus
  • Status: Dormant
  • Synopsis: Seventeen-year-old Bulma figures joining the Galactic Patrol could be a fun life, so she'll take up Jaco's offer. Decisions made on a whim of being bored always work out, don't they? Unfortunately no. As Bulma ventures through what seems to be a slow and placid life as a Patroller, she discovers there's so much more to the universe than she ever realized. That as well as coming to terms with the messy growing up business, trying to keep her friends abreast of the alien truths she learns (like her dearest friend BEING an alien), juggling new friends and duties, it's all quite a ridiculous and thrilling adventure for her. Not to mention the part where she remembered Jaco wasn't the ONLY alien she met as a child. What's worse, a vengeful(ly petty) alien prince, the monster that calls himself emperor of the universe, or coming to terms with your sweetheart romance not being what you thought it was?
