  • Anything by Tmae 3114
  • Recommended by Gamma Cavy
Her characterization is spot on, and she's taken a look at the implications of the Resest, and Cysero and Warlic discussing immortality. It's amazing.

An ongoing series of primarily psychological horror stories with heavy Lovecraft influences. Beginning with the recent and currently on-going "The Wilting Rose," set during Book Three which stars a ragtag group of Rose operatives as they venture into uncharted parts of Doomwood. From "A New Home" to "The Long Dark," stories are set in a distant future with their own stories focusing primarily on original characters and their struggles.

    General Fics 
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.

Tell him Hello For Me by Tmae 3114

  • Recommended by: Gamma Cavy
  • Status: Complete
  • Genre: hurt/comfort, friendship
  • Summary: Homesickness can be hard to deal with. Reunions can be hard to face when you don't know how they'll go. The hero finally passing on a message they were given might help fix both those problems. Cysero, thinking on the Reset.

Fray by Aloice

  • Recommended by: A-No-Ma-Ly
  • Status: Complete
  • Genre: Friendship
  • Summary:Tomix has a moment on the Void ship. Written to the quest "Void War Intro."

An average day

  • Recommended by: A-No-Ma-Ly
  • Status: Complete
  • Genre: Action, General
  • Summary: Monsters attacking, young guardians having trouble in their first battle, my dragon and I carving a swathe of devastation and ruin in the attackers, and Artix slaying undead. Just an average day in Falconreach.
  • Comments: Philosophical musings in battle. The narrative is a bit personalized to Cavy's Dragonfable character, but I didn't find that very jarring. The combat is matter-of-fact and well balanced, the descriptions of violence are clear but not overdone, and the first person narrative is likable and practical. It ties in with Cavy's other DF works wonderfully, and continues to work with the handling of the Hero as the partner of the dragon of destruction, as introduced in "They Don't know")(see below).

They Don't Know by Gamma Cavy

  • Recommended by: Tiamat Dragon Queen, A-No-Ma-Ly
  • Status: Complete
  • Genre: General
  • Summary: Oh, my friends, you think you know me, but you refuse to see what's in front of you. I feel my lips curve into a wolfish smile. My bonded partner is the dragon of destruction, and my enemies are about to find out what that means. The musings of the Hero, before a battle.
  • Comments: Cavy's done it again! Bringing her unique, right angled perspective from Fullmetal alchemist to Dragonfable, she has used her knack for building little background details into full plot points, this time focusing on the Hero, the dragon, and just what it means that the Hero holds the Dragon of Destruction. It makes one think, and this troper at least found himself reassessing many points in the game in light of what Cavy pointed out.

An Echo of Soulthreads

  • Recommended by: A-No-ma-ly
  • Status: Complete
  • Genre: Suspense/General
  • Summary: Once a month, I return here. Mortem. This place means so much to me, and at the same time it is a place I hate. It is the hometown of one of the greatest heroes I have ever known, and where his grave is. And now, it's been a year since his death. A Tomix Saga anniversary fic containing Cavy's thoughts on Soulweaving.

Tales OF Lore by Likestoimagine

  • Recommended by Gamma Cavy
  • Status: Dormant
  • Genre: Family
  • Summary: What is, what was, what could be - tales of the journey of an Adventurer.
  • Comments: this and its companion fic Journeys of Ravenloss are well worth reading, and fit with the world of Lore so well one could think they were part of the main continuity, written by the programmers themselves.

An Inch as Long as a Mile by Eclissy

  • Recommended by Gamma Cavy
  • Status: Complete
  • Genre: Drama
  • Summary: From time to time, a nagging voice tells Tomix that he's selfish.

Still Hereby Tmae3114

  • Recommended by Gamma Cavy
  • Status: Complete
  • Genre: Friendship/Hurt/Comfort
  • Synopsis: The wind whips past. Tomix can feel tears leaking from his eyes, but he feels lighter than he has in a long time. Images flicker past his closed eyes, and he thinks for what must be the last time 'goodbye' and 'thank you'. He hits the core. He does not expect to wake up again. He doesn't know what he expected but it certainly wasn't to wake up.
  • Additional notes: this feels right, and as if it might be what happened. It belongs.

Sneevil Plus Storage by Kelar the Mage

  • Recommended by CannibalisticSkittles
  • Synopsis: "Short and silly oneshot featuring a sneevil who got into a storage center thanks to a strange spell. That mage didn't realise what he'd done."
  • Status: Complete.
  • Notes: While not exactly a 40 chapter epic, this story is fairly funny, cute, and plausible within the Dragon Fable universe.

Holding Back the Shadows by Tmae3114

  • Recommended by: Gamma Cavy
  • Status: Complete
  • Summary:A joke can be the greatest weapon you have sometimes. A smile even more so. A character study of Cysero, with a glimpse at who he was before the Reset.

Always the Years Between Usby Tmae3114

  • Recommended by: Gamma Cavy
  • Status: Complete
  • Summary:In the aftermath of his merge, Warlic finds himself plagued by dreams that don't feel like dreams, bleeding into even his waking hours. Walking an unknown path is always easier with the help of someone who has walked it before, and Cysero knows a thing or two about the names and places Warlic can't stop seeing (or: Warlic's memories from before the Reset are coming back)

    Original Characters Fics 
Any fanfics which are based on Original Characters including the main in-game cast. May include player-created characters

A Rouge's Tale by Blade 100

  • Recommended by SabrinaDiamond
  • Genre: Humour, Fantasy and Drama
  • Synopsis: A 'Dragon' Rogue named 'Alexander' learns that he is to master the 'elements' and is destined to lead his team of six (plus a pink Moglin, ninja and pirate) against Sepulchre. His egg soon hatches and now they battled against 'the Reset' of time which they cannot understand.
  • Status: Incomplete so far, with only 17 chapters.
  • Additional Notes: Blade 100 is 'resting' for now, but he may make it not a Dead Fic one day... Any similarities to Storm Hawks is not intended as this fanfic was written before. The plot doesn't really kick off until chapter 5. This fanfic was so popular it had a couple of Spin-Off stories and even some Dark Fic. Some authors even made Recursive Fanfiction...

Downward Spiral by G.I.G.A.

  • Recommended by Your Former Self
  • Status: Complete
  • Genre: Horror and suspense
  • Synopsis: A mercenary from the town of Piore is getting increasingly bad headaches after joining an expedition to an underwater city and meeting with a strange creature.
  • Additional Notes: I quest to find good fanfics like this almost every day, and usually come away disappointed. This, however, is one of the better prizes I've found. Takes cues from the Water chain and stirs it up into something /really/ eerie. It's a shame it hasn't more readers, really. The writer has also made a sequel, called Elemental Entropy.
  • "You cannot resist..."

Drowning by Eclissy

  • Recommended by Cardiganiron
  • Genre: Drama, Romance, Humor
  • Synopsis: A fire in the lungs. A light headedness. The roar of rushing blood through your ears. Falling and drowning are quite similar. Adventurer X Drakath, fluff sort of, warning for some language.
  • Status: Updates from time to time.
  • Additional Notes: A long standing collection of Drakath/Hero one-shots and one of the best. Drakath’s characterisation is spot on and delves deeper with interesting turns and what-if scenarios that are fun and dramatic. Ty, the Hero Original Character, herself is a dynamic, out-of-the box personality that keeps the twists coming and eyes on the page. They play off of each other very well and it’s a fic worth coming back to over and over.

Ocean of Hopelessness by Nagisa X Ikari

  • Recommended by Harley Thomas 1002
  • Status: Complete
  • Genre: Horror
  • Synopsis: A young Ascendant and Soulweaver set out on a journey, one to stop what will happen when the stars align while the other tries to cope with their impending madness. Meanwhile Baron Valtrith plans on challenging Kathool.
  • Status: Indefinite hiatus although the author said they'd rewrite it when the events of Book Three's Valtrith storyline concludes.
  • Additional Notes: Greatly inspired by G.I.G.A.'s "Downward Spiral" and the Cthulhu Mythos

''The Long Dark"" by Nagisa X Ikari

  • Recommended by Harley Thomas 1002
  • Genre: Mystery, Thriller, Horror
  • Synopsis: A Paladin wanders the halls of Arkham Asylum, purging it of the evil within as is their mission. But as they delve deeper into the asylum, all isn't as it appears to be.
  • Status: Complete.
  • Additional Notes: The first work set within the continuity of their future "Ocean of Hopelessness" setting.

''A New Home"" by Nagsa X Ikari

  • Recommended by Harley Thomas 1002
  • Genre: Horror, Mystery, Romance, Drama
  • Synopsis: A young man from Amityvale inherits a house from his grandfather in the obscure town of Dunwich, but adulthood turns out to be more than just getting a job and working to start a family.
  • Status: Complete.
  • Additional Note: The prequel to their future "Ocean of Hopelessness" setting.
