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.

  • Recommended by: Redbattleshibro
  • Status: Dormant
  • Advertisement:
  • Pairings: Various, Mostly Kathy/Kasey
  • Synopsis: Drip, drip. Is it just her imagination, or is the bag empty again? A collection of one-shots, centering around everyone's favorite barmaid and the hardly-working farmer.

Storm Clouds and Grey Skies by Yurama

  • Recommended by: Pichu
  • Status: Dormant
  • Pairings: Leia x Claire
  • Synopsis: Leia's been there for Claire ever since she took over the farm at Mineral Town and the two thought they'd remain friends forever...
  • Comments: The pairing is quite rare and this fanfic is a rare gem in itself. It's cute well-written and not as sickly sweet as you'd expect.. At all.

Best Friends by Artificially Intelligent Data Anomaly

  • Recommended by Pichu
  • Status: Complete
  • Pairings: Keira x Claire
  • Synopsis: HM:DS Cute. How terribly unfair that a man and a woman become spouses while a woman and a woman become "BF Fs." Less angst, more anger. An insight into the small world of boondocks love and its victims. Keria and her rather disgruntled Claire.
  • Warnings: Many, many Cluster F-Bomb's. As in "every other line, most likely multiple times".
  • Comments: I find the theory surrounding this fanfic quite interesting. It makes Forget-Me-Not Valley into a Crapsaccharine World and I really like the grimdark.

The Takakura Tales by sugarapplesweet

  • Recommended by: mutents
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: After Takakura's oldest friend dies unexpectedly of a degenerative disease, he finds himself merely waiting for death to join the two. How do you decide to love while getting mixed signals from everyone in town?
  • Pairing(s): Takakura/Jill
  • Comments: Okay, so I realize that the ship probably seems bizarre, but trust me when I tell you that this fic is truly incredible. I've read it like three or four times, and every time I find myself more in love with it than I was before.

Crossover Fics

White Houses by Little Miss Liesmith

  • Recommended by Hannah Hypolita
  • Status: Dormant
  • Crossover with: The Avengers
  • Synopsis: After the events of The Avengers, Loki falls again, this time to Midgard—specifically, a small island called Castanet. Peace can never last long, however, and the arrival of just about everyone who’s ever even mildly disliked him rather complicates matters.
  • Pairings: Loki/Renee (Animal Parade/Tree of Tranquility)
  • Comments: The idea of Loki as the player character promises fun and the author has promised appearances by the Avengers and the Warriors Three in another thread.

Alternative Title(s): Harvest Moon Natsume, Story Of Seasons
