Proof that the remaining 10% are worth bearing uncountable dick jokes for here.

These are recommendations made by Tropers for Fan Fics, all of which have been signed. After a few samples, you will be able to judge whether you might be interested in the 'fic, based on who recommended it. No-name recommendations will be Zapped. Nobody would back up the rec. Discussion of the recommendation is welcome on the discussion page. As such discussion is important, do remember to add the discussion page to the watchlist, if need be.


Do warn when a fanfic may head into homosexual or non-canon territory. Some people just don't like it, and as we all know, Shipping is Serious Business.

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.

Be Careful When Shopping Online, by loopdedoop

  • Recommended by empireofthesky
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: In which the Joui 4 put aside their differences (sort of) and form a (girl) band. Follow Edo's hottest new band as they revolutionize (destroy) Edo's music scene!
  • Comments: Despite hints of Takagin, and liberal use of crack pairings, this has to be one of the most well written and in-character fics out there. The scenario is hilarious, but the story itself is even more so. It's very much in the spirit of Gintama.

Pandemonium by Xparrot

  • Recommended by Lyra_Dhani
  • Status: Completed
  • Synopsis: The Yorozuya trio gets an unexpected reward. They really should've checked their daily horoscope before accepting: Beware of old women bearing gifts, don't count your lizards before they're hatched, and be careful when life seems too good to be true, because it might be a sign that everything is soon going to go very, very badly.
  • Comments: The writing style is messy at first but as the chapters progressed, it keeps improving. Totally recommended

Toll by athena_crikey

  • Recommended by Lyra_Dhani
  • Status: Completed
  • Synopsis: The Yorozuya get sent on an exorcism. Unsurprisingly, things do not go smoothly.

Rabble-Rouser by experimentaldrama

  • Recommended by Lyra_Dhani
  • Status: Dormant
  • Synopsis: "And this country is now at peace. Or as much as we can fake it." In the wake of a war, a bartender takes a man dubbed legally dead under her wing and waits to see whether soul can triumph over habit.
It just happens, though, that a man cleverly avoiding the Bafuku's radar by a needle's head allows himself to become the target of a massive underground web of tongue-tattooed baddies and hooligans.

Dreams are just the shackles of memory and emotion on the human being by storiewriter

  • Recommended by Lyra_Dhani
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: Gintoki doesn't dream often, and when he does it's usually vague. When it's not that, it's a memory, suffocating, like being stuffed in a cage with no way to turn. Except this time, it's not quite any of those things.

Dead Men Don't Talk by The Blue Sheep

  • Recommended by Lyra_Dhani
  • Status: Dormant
  • Synopsis: "Dead men don't talk," continued the man, then stood up and faced the gravestone. "Neither do they eat manju. Which is why I made a promise instead." - Otose might have been old, but she wasn't stupid. What made her trust a man she picked up from the graveyard; who made a silly promise over a few manju?

Alternative Universe Fics
Stories that change one or more elements of the source work's canon.

The Nurse and the Pirate King by Dem Pork Buns

  • Recommended by Tonki
  • Status: Discontinued
  • Synopsis: A student nurse is thrown inside a sack and finds herself working as an unwilling one-man medical team to a crew of pirates in the Harusame's 7th division. Rated T due to bloodshed and occasional cussing. Kamuix OC ...
  • Comments: It's a very interesting story, the characters are not OOC and the writing style fits Gintama perfectly, It's very humorous and fun to read. And it focuses on how a human tries to survive in a place full of bloodthirsty Amanto. However, there is a lot of cussing and violence.

Antigravity, by Unidentified Pie

  • Recommended by Lyra_Dhani
  • Status: On-Going
  • Synopsis: Six months after the world ends, a samurai and a little girl walk into a bar. The Joui war was cut short on account of the Earth being blown up. In an unnoticed corner of the universe, Otose watches a seventeen year old Gintoki attempt to raise a four year old Kagura
