Attack of the 100 Foot Meg Griffin by Grey-X

  • It has its own article now.
  • Recommended by Burstkiller and Happy Man
  • Status: Completed
  • Synopsis: Meg Griffin has always been treated like a reject and an outcast, even by her own family. But when exposure to a strange meteorite transforms her into a towering giantess and she finally snaps, everyone in Quahog had better watch out.
  • Comments: For those who been wanting a Meg revenge fic, this one will finally feed your hunger. Great characterizations, a plot that is solid from top to bottom and anime-flavored manatee gags that will leave you in tears. Fic has a very good pre-revival vibe to it and after reading, you might join the other reviewers in telling the author to send it in to Seth himself.

Payback From A Pipe by Meowth's Toon Dragon

  • Recommended by Gordon Schumway
  • Status: Completed
  • Synopsis: After beating Brian half to death for sleeping with his transgender father, Quagmire learns that payback and karma can be both extremely vicious and extremely fast when Stewie finds out what happened...
  • Comments: If you're one of those people who's disgusted with Quagmire's hypocrisy in hating Brian when he's just about the last person who has any right to look down on anyone, and for beating a completely ignorant Brian at the end of Quagmire's Dad for something he had absolutely no idea about, then this is the fic for you. Stewie throws all of Quagmire's hypocritical bullshit back in his face, wonderfully deconstructing his original "The Reason You Suck" Speech to Brian by turning all of Quagmire's accusations back towards him, and giving Quagmire the fate he so richly deserves.

Faith Toleration by Peach Wookie

  • Recommended by Happy Man
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: An alternative ending for the infamous episode "Not All Dogs Go To Heaven".
  • Comments: If you read this fanfic, you'd wish this was the actual ending of the aforementioned episode. It's wonderfully written, and it's not too long, and offers a much better resolution .

Wipe The Slate Clean by Breech Loader

  • Recommended by Harley Quinn hyenaholic
  • Status: Dead
  • Synopsis: Meg hates her family, and she's going to give them what they have coming. It doesn't help that Brian's feeling suicidal. But if there's anywhere you can make a fresh start, it's Mexico - if they can get there alive. Will there be any survivors?
  • Comments: Many fanfics about Meg go on about her getting revenge - but they don't often get this serious, or this bloody, or involve attempted suicides. Working heavily from Meg's experiences in Dial Meg For Murder and acclaimed for its portrayal of Meg going Trigger Happy with a shotgun and killing her family, its portrayal of Brian as being better than canon, and its ability to bring people back from the dead just to have more fun with them. Rumours of the Giant Chicken seeking vengeance are abound, and the question raised in the summary becomes more legitimate with every chapter - will anybody survive?

To Who? by JoeMerl

  • Recommended by fruitstripegum
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: When karma strikes the Griffin family, they know just who to turn to for help. Well...sort of. One-shot.

Stories focused on the romantic relationships between the cast.

Coming Out by Howling 1

  • Recommended by Jane Poirot
  • Status: Complete
  • Pairings: Brian/Stewie
  • Synopsis: After the so-called "gay gene" is discovered, Stewie injects Brian with said gay gene in hopes of making Brian fall in love with him. It succeeds in turning Brian gay, but does not make him necessarily love Stewie. Needless to say, it creates complications.
  • Comments: Absolutely brilliant. Done in the exact same style as a Family Guy episode (only, in this troper's opinion, somewhat more smartly written), this fanfic could easily become an actual episode or special movie. Everyone behaves in-character, and it has some of the classic trademarks of Family Guy (random flashbacks with celebrities and an over-the-top subplot), and contains shout-outs to previous characters (for example, Brian's gay cousin Jasper, and even the infamous chicken fight). The overall message of the story, if put into the wrong hands, would have come across as a horribly broken aesop, but the author manages to avoid that and create a well-thought out aesop. Without a doubt, one of the absolute best Family Guy fanfics out there.
    • Second opinion by pimpdaddy . I have to disagree on this one. The chapters are very short, and the fact that they need to fill up a good chunk of each chapter with cut-away gags is pretty obnoxious. More than half of the second chapter was just line for line quotes from various episodes as "flashbacks". It doesn't really seem to stand out as a particularly memorable fan fiction, let alone an example of a great one.

Meg's Boyfriend and its sequel Meg's Family, by Malcolm Fox

The Spellbook by Ander-Arias

  • It has its own article
  • Recommended by Largo Quagmire
  • Status: Completed
  • Pairings: Meg/Original Character, Brian/Jillian
  • Synopsis: For her eighteenth birthday, Peter, on a last-minute gift-buying trip, buys Meg a spellbook. This spellbook gives Meg magical powers... and things get really crazy really fast, especially after Meg's new boyfriend gets involved.
  • Comments: Although similar to Meg's Boyfriend/Family, The Spellbook has some very interesting conceits. This Troper's personal favorite aspect of The Spellbook is the emphasis on familial love, something that is often neglected in Family Guy in general. This Troper also loves the ridiculous hijinks of Miriam and her sisters, the evil witches who constantly try to steal the spellbook from Meg.

The ABCs of Kink by Van the Key of Lain

  • Recommended by FlamingMercury5
  • Status: Dead
  • Pairings: Meg/Quagmire
  • Synopsis: Meg and Quagmire form a mutual agreement to provide each other with emotional support and go out with each other when neither of them were seeing anyone else. Of course, while their relationship just begins as a mutual agreement, the two of them find themselves hopelessly falling in love with each other...
  • Comments: This is the fic that made me ship Meg and Quagmire. It's so beautifully written and so perfectly captures the emotions of these two. I'm a sucker for a good Hurt/Comfort Fic, and when it involves a character like Meg Griffin who has been shit upon by the world, it's just so sweet! Yes, there's lots of smut (as to be expected when one half of the fic's pairing is Glenn Quagmire), but it's beautifully interwoven with fluff and hurt/comfort, so it doesn't really feel jarring or out-of-place.
