    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.

The Legion of Murdering the Lord Commander into a Plethora of Butholes by Bunny Rock.

  • Recommend by: De Vos
  • Status: Dormant; last updated August 2018
  • Pairings: None,
  • Synopsis: The Legion of Murdering an Irritatingly Power-Thirsty Pintsized Imp into a Plethora of Buttholes! Because as difficult as that name is to say, it's even harder to *do* when the family-dynamics of the least functional crew in Space keeps needing a raw, high power man hug from their heroic captain to keep going in the face of serious action.
  • Comment: Gary uses temporal worms to try and get Little Cato some closure about his dad.

     Alternate Universe 

Stories where one fundamental aspect of the series is completely overhauled from its point of origin.None Yet

    Shipping Fics 

Stories focused on the romantic relationships between the cast.

Dancing Lessons by Cartoonygirl.

  • Recommended by: Sane_Spinster
  • Status: Completed
  • Pairings: Gary/Avocato
  • Summary: Set during the time between episodes 2-3 or so, and it's Exactly What It Says on the Tin, as HUE teaches Gary and Avocato how to dance with each other.
  • Comment: The timeline could be stretched a bit longer to make the romantic development between Gary and Avocato a bit more organic, but this is overall nicely smutty and in-character.

    Crossover Fics 

Fanfiction that combines elements, characters, etc. from two or more different franchises.

Avocato's Visit by thx2God4U.S.A.

  • Recommend by: Sane_Spinster
  • Status: Complete
  • Pairings: None
  • Synopsis: One week after the Lord Commander's test of loyalty, Avocato attends a parent support group in the Animation Nexus (a cartoon dimension made up of various known Western animated series and their respective characters) to clear his head and learn to become a better father to Little Cato.
  • Comment: An animation medley crossover featuring several other cartoons, each "parent" to their respective protagonists bounce off of each other nicely throughout the story, and Avocato's gradual openness to the group about his own conflict helps to add nuance to both the group dynamic, his own personal life, and the status quo of cartoon characters' moral gradients. I won't name names so you can read and recognize them for yourself, but the characters in the support group consist of a mix of 2010s cartoons and mid-to-late 2000s cartoons.

Bill Cipher Meets The Lord Commander by Inutoaluv

  • Recommended by Heroic-FanFiction-Reader
  • Crossover with: Gravity Falls
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: The Lord Commander, having nowhere else to turn, summons Bill Cipher to ask him to help him get Mooncake. Bill has other ideas.

    Dark Fiction 

Stories focused on making the series darker, and/or exploring the darker aspects of the series.

Going forward is for people who deserve it by fictionisthebetterreality.

  • Recommended by: Sane_Spinster
  • Status: Completed
  • Pairings: None
  • Summary: A one-shot that explores and makes the story elements within the Final Space storyline... arguably more tragic.
  • Comment: This story can also be categorized under general fics, but personally I thought the depression made the story count as dark enough to qualify under dark fiction too.

Twisted and Broken by dustin74941.

  • Recommended by: Sane_Spinster
  • Status: In progress
  • Pairings: Quinn Airgone/Avocato/Gary Goodspeed
  • Summary: A darker AU where Gary is rescued after the battle with the Lord Commander, but pays for his resurrection with something far more important than his life courtesy of an evil Titan.
  • Comment: There's not much yet to be said about the story from the first chapter, but the reveal of the Titan's true colors feels like the true twist in the plot, and the actions Gary takes are absolutely horrifying.
