Proof that the remaining 10% is worth dying for

Feel free to add an Eyeshield 21 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.


Reviews of fics are encouraged, but if you choose to write one, please make it substantive, and give specific details about what you liked / disliked in the fic. If you want to give a fic a thumbs-up without writing a full review, you can add your troper handle to the Recommendations Line. Please refrain from posting "Comments" or Conversation in the Main Page though; that goes in the discussion page.

General Fics
Stories which primarily focus on the normal goings on of the cast.

Hard Work by hadaka

  • Recommended by Zephyr 7
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: Apollo meets Sena and is forced to give hard work another chance.
  • Comments: An AU where Panther and Eyeshield 21 play for the NASA Aliens and utterly destroys the Ojou Knights in the exhibition match. Everyone's despairing reaction at how utterly and naturally superior an American team is compared to them is bittersweet. But when Sena reveals his nationality to them, it was proven otherwise in an awesome Wham Line.

The Devil With a Handgun: Twenty Truths About Hiruma Youichi by idiosyn

  • Recommended by Zephyr 7
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: Hiruma had, under no circumstances, doubted they would win the Christmas Bowl at some point.
  • Comments: Just a lovely insight on our favourite devilish quarterback.

Bequeath by Lys ap Adin

  • Recommended by Zephyr 7
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: Hiruma passes on the torch.
  • Comments: The characters were written wonderfully and in-character.

Hooked by demoerin

  • Recommended by Zephyr 7
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: The joke would have gone to rest there, as neither Musashi or Kurita were bulletproof, but two nights later Musashi invited them to his house: "Dad said he'd like to know more about the club."
  • Comments: A great bromatic fic about the original Deimon trio. Characterization is great and it feels like it would fit right in with the manga.

A Second Run by Dragonighta-93

  • Recommended by Non Sequtur
  • Status: Dormant
  • Synopsis: Sena is a perfectly normal,if shy,young girl. Until one day she wakes up from a dream: a dream where she was male, and fast, and went by the name Eyeshield 21. But Sena isn't even in High School yet. It was just a dream...right? Fem Sena time travel sort of

Shipping Fics
Stories whose primary focus is on romantic or sexual relationships between the cast.

Good Girls by Lys ap Adin

  • Recommended by Zephyr 7
  • Status: Complete
  • Pairing: Mamori x Hiruma
  • Synopsis: Anezaki Mamori knows all the rules good girls follow.
  • Comments: Definitely one of my favourite drabbles on how Mamori slowly decides to no longer be a good girl with the influence of Hiruma. The author has an amazing way of stringing words together and they used a nice repetitive flow to get the insight of Mamori across.

Saikyo Romance by Punk Hazard

  • Recommended by deltacrow
  • Status: Complete
  • Pairing: Multiple
  • Synopsis: "A BL webcomic/novel about the ace quarterbacks of the Saikyo University Wizards and other college league football teams. This work does not depict real situations and is entirely fan-made." (Eyeshield 21 isn't Karin's only project.)
  • Comments: This was fucking fantastic. A really cool point of view— it swaps between Karin and Sanzo, we don't ever really hear from/ of either of them in the manga or in fanfics— and while this is technically a shipping fanfic, it's really more of a General one. It's just— Karin and Sanzo are writing RPF. It's glorious.

How well does it match the trope?
