    • Synopsis: My name is Ninten. Yeah, I know, laugh all you'd like, it'll get old soon enough. Anyway, for the first eleven years of my life, being the bearer of that name was the most remarkable thing you could say about me. Then, one day, my lamp attacked me.
    • Comments: First of all, I love the narration style of this story, Ninten's snarky commentary makes this a very entertaining read. It also expands on the characters and setting, and gives them more personality than before. A real shame that it hasn't been updated since 2014.

Stories focused on the romantic relationships between the cast.

    • Synopsis: Lloyd's partway through growing up in the suburban town of Thanksgiving. He doesn't have friends. The other kids at Twinkle Elementary bully him, and he's perfectly content to devote all of his free time to studying science instead. That resolution crashes and burns like a failed rocket when a skinny kid in a bandana declares their friendship and then drags him further from home than he ever thought he'd go. Somewhere along the way, Lloyd learns a few things about friendship, family, and the different forms love takes. A Series Fic.
    • Pairings: Ninten/Lloyd, Ninten/Ana (One-sided)
