Authors, and Websites
None yet.

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.

Def Part of the Fam by Violet Rose of Darkness

  • Recommended by Bright Light
  • Status: Complete
  • Summary: Webby and Dewey have a talk before everyone goes their separate ways. Debbigail friendship, but can be seen as romance if you want.
  • Comments: Comes right after that heartbreaking episode (The Last Crash of the Sunchaser).

Problem Children by mandaree1

  • Recommended by fruitstripegum
  • Status: Complete
  • Summary: The triplets handle bullies differently.

Huey Duck's Non-Comprehensive, Ever Growing List of Reasons Why Being A Triplet Is Awesome by FanGirlAndProudOfIt

  • Recommended by Known Unknown
  • Status: Complete (but possibly continued in the future)
  • Advertisement:
  • Summary: A collection of fun, embarrassing, silly and hearwarming snapshots of the triplets' life before and after meeting Scrooge, with the theme of Huey meticulously listing all the things he loves about his brothers.
  • Comments: Many of the recs on this page are brother moment fics between the triplets, and this fic decides to go the whole hog and string as many different types of them together as the author could think of, pulling on their own experience having siblings. As a result, it's a very heartwarming read with an especially sweet ending.

Coat Closet by whitebeltwriter

  • Recommended by Bright Light
  • Status: Complete
  • Summary: Fall is on its way and that means the oh so fun task of making sure everyone is properly attired when heading out. Especially if someone doesn't seem to have any clothes save for what's on her back.

In Your Corner by whitebeltwriter

  • Recommended by Bright Light
  • Status: Complete
  • Summary: Mrs Beakley finds Lena hurt on the manor's doorstep and comforting ensues.

Dreams and Reality by darknessarrives165

  • Recommended by Bright Light
  • Status: Complete
  • Summary: Dewey dreams of his mom. Of adventures she has had in the past, of her childhood, and other parts of her life. Unsure of whether they are true events from her life, he feels as if they are necessary for getting him closer to finding his mom. And perhaps the answer to what happened to her all those years ago.
  • Comments: Definitely my favorite story from the fandom so far. From the high-stakes drama to the dangerous action (fans of Dewey and Webby be warned - they get smacked around quite a bit, emotionally and physically), everything in this story pays off with catharsis.

Keeping the Balance by Sand-wolf579

  • Recommended by Bright Light
  • Status: Complete
  • Summary: Huey took on the role of the older, responsible triplet. Being the one in charge though was really hard sometimes, especially when one of his brothers was keeping secrets from them. Throw in a teenager who was a bit of a bully, and a girl who was a little intense for his liking, and Huey was in for a hard time.

Bound to Repeat it by Sand-wolf579

  • Recommended by Bright Light
  • Status: Complete
  • Summary: Louie found a disturbing pattern in their family's history and begins to think that there's a connection between success and resent in the family.

Battling Brothers by Queen Reagan

  • Recommended by Bright Light
  • Status: Complete
  • Summary: In the aftermath of their failed internship, Huey and Dewey have a falling out concerning their work ethics. With Webby sick, Beakley occupied, and Uncle Donald and Great-Uncle Scrooge kept in the dark, it is up to Louie to reconcile his battling brothers.
  • Comments: Takes place after "The Infernal Internship of Mark Beaks!".

Will You Come Home? by booklover4816

  • Recommended by Bright Light
  • Status: Complete
  • Summary: After a family argument, a certain level-headed duckling makes an impulsive decision that sends his family into panic.
  • Comments: This story is based around the idea that Dewey comes clean about his investigation regarding his mother. Huey angrily blows up at his great-uncle (offscreen) then runs away.

The First Night by roxygoth

  • Recommended by Bright Light
  • Status: Complete
  • Summary: It's the boys first night in McDuck Manor. Of course they're not nervous at all, why would they be? No, this is the start of a new adventure...
  • Comments: Very in-character interactions between Donald and Scrooge at the beginning (and pretty funny talk between them too). Louie steals the show near the end. And there's a nice hint of Dewey x Webby in the middle.

Mirror, Mirror by Soulful-sin

  • Recommended by Legionnaire Blaze
  • Status: Complete
  • Summary: 1987 Webby Vanderquack is in for a surprise when she walks through an antique mirror and finds herself in another McDuck Manor, this time confronted by another version of herself and the boys. Meanwhile, on the other side, the boys end up making matters worse. Now they need Magica's help to repair the mirror and Magica's help always comes with a price...
  • Comments: An enjoyable story that successfully crosses over the two shows. So far has been a very good read.
    • A really interesting scenario, one that I particullarly always wanted to read about, and it didn't disappoint me. As the story advances, it becomes darker, with some dark themes and injuries that would be lighter in the shows being taken very seriously. Still, it's enjoyable, engaging, and very faithful to the characters from both shows and probably the dream of many fans come true.
    • Has a sequel here.

How to Survive on Thin Ice by secretsoup

  • Recommended by fruitstripegum
  • Status: Complete
  • Summary: Webby is standing in a crowded department store with her Granny two weeks before Christmas looking at a table of black and grey striped sweaters while trying not to cry not because fate led her here, but because it's a popular style and Lena had good taste and sweaters make good gifts. It's a coincidence. “Would you like one,” Granny says softly, after a few moments, because she can see Webby is touching one, gently, two fingers on the folded corner of it like it's a stray dog that might bite. “Oh,” she says, nervous and a little shrill. She's been doing a really great job at putting on a brave face about the whole Lena thing; bravery and optimism is what Webby does best, and besides, it's not like she just found out her mother died scared and alone in outer space or anything. She hadn't even known Lena that long, or very well, what with all the lying and everything. So when you put it in perspective, really, it would be selfish to make a fuss about it. “That's okay.” Her voice cracks like thin ice. She treads carefully, has been for almost five months now, lest she break through and drown. One day she'll make it back to solid ground, maybe. “I don't even think it comes in my size.”

We Get the Job Done by ant5b

  • Recommended by Cyrania
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: Fenton and Scrooge commiserate over the immigrant experience.
  • Notes: Bonding between Scrooge and Fenton is something that is lacking within the fandom right now. This deals with a solid point of connection the two would have between them and is well handled. Bonus points for the title reference and how well it fits what's going on.

A Small Coffee Break by Fandomtrashed 13

  • Recommended by Cyrania
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: He looked up and insantly, his day was ruined. The sun was behind the clouds, the milk has been spilt, the toe has been stubbed, the dread was settling into his stomach. Why?
    Because Mark Beaks was standing in front of him, arms spread wide and grinning as if he hadn't used Fenton and stolen the Gizmoduck suit, almost killing people in the process.
  • Notes: Illustrates the chillingly villainous Mark Beaks along with how any future interactions between him and Fenton may end up going with a charming rescue.

Power Down by Digi Kate 813

  • Recommended by Cyrania
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: Now that Fenton has officially become Gizmoduck, Duckburg’s newest protector, he is not holding back. Giving everything he has to being the greatest hero he can be. But how much can he push himself to do more before he starts to fall?
  • Notes: The obligatory well-meaning hero overworks himself to prove himself worthy of his title and then has help from others as he deals with the repercussions story done beautifully. Digi Kate 813 writes it in the style of an episode, making the whole story seem like something that could come up in canon in the future. Also has parental Scrooge and a team up of Gizmoduck and Scrooge McDuck.

Duck of Mystery by ant5b

  • Recommended by Powe Respect
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: No one cares about poor, orphaned Gosalyn Waddlemeyer, so why should he?

Sittin' in a Tree by Pika Girl 13

  • Recommended by Bright Light

  • Synopsis: As Dewey is backed up against a tree by his brothers for taking the last chocolate chip cookie, he's suddenly rescued by Webby who was hanging out in the tree branches above.
  • Pairing(s): Dewey/Webby
  • Comments: Nerdy fans will probably view this as a continuation of the "Meet Webby!" short, where Dewey has a tendency to hog all the chocolate chip cookies to himself. Only this time, Huey and Louie get in on the action.

We'll Solve This Together by Pika Girl 13

  • Recommended by Bright Light
  • Status: Complete

Stand By Me by secretsoup

  • Recommended by Powe Respect
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: Lena with make-up isn't all that different than Lena without make-up, which you think is surprising because people always talk about girls and make-up like it makes a big difference. She’s not less pretty, or more pretty, because she’s always pretty, and every time you look at her she seems prettier than the last time you looked at her, and OH, Lena’s a witch, isn't she? Maybe she's got you under a thrall, is this what it feels like to be under a thrall? This is so exciting, you've never been under a thrall before!
  • Pairing(s): Webby/Lena
  • Comments: A cute second-person Webby fic where she realizes her feelings for Lena during a sleepover. Written pre-season one finale.

Freedom From Fear by Kung-fu Blaziken

  • Recommended by Tropemaster 849
  • Status: Ongoing
  • Synopsis: Freedom. Lena had wanted it for so very long. But even though the connection with Magica is broken, she wonders if she is truly free. Thankfully, she's got a better family out of the deal.
  • Comments: An AU detailing what would have happened if Lena had been freed from Magica before The Shadow War!, along with giving her a different backstory. It is a great read, but be warned, Lena gets smacked around a lot.

The Lost Niece by myrskytuuli

  • Recommended by Cyrania de Bergerac
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: Della gets compared to her uncle a lot. She is smarter than the smarties and tougher than the toughies, brave and clever, with lust for adventure, for adrenaline, for making herself into something more.
  • Comments: An AU dealing with a intriguing possibility for Della's absence from her kids' life. Namely, what if Della striving to get out from her Uncle Scrooge's shadow had lead her to villainy. It's a truly chilling and heartrending one-shot that does offer valid development for this AU even if only explored in one-shot form.

Cooperation by Solar Morrigan

  • Recommended by Cyrania de Bergerac
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: Darkwing Duck meets Gizmoduck and isn't particularly impressed with his track record. (Though, Gizmoduck isn't particularly impressed with his attitude, so at least they're even.)
  • Comments: This is a beautiful expression of the hoped for team up of Drake Mallard and Fenton Crackshell-Cabrera. Their dynamic references their 90's one, yet is also unique and true to both characters. If the show ended up going a similar route to this for whatever future they have for Darkwing, there would be much rejoicing.
