Authors, and Websites

None Yet.

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.

  • Advertisement:
  • Synopsis: He always thought the world needed a reset button, he just didn't know what that really entailed. When the world collapses, when the tides change, sometimes shifts in power are ineffable. An apocalypse complete with cannibalism and a peculiar love story.

Stories focused on the romantic relationships between the cast.

Vargas by Zarla (Also on AO3

  • Recommended by Shaon
  • Status: Dormant
  • Pairing: Nny/Edgar. Don't remember who Edgar is? Don't worry, he was a one-shot character from the second issue that has a freakishly large fanbase.
  • Synopsis: What if Nny never killed Edgar? Vargas follows Edgar Vargas's life directly after being released by Nny, but still keeps remarkably close to the original.
  • Tags: AU, gets slashy later on

My Immortal (No, not THAT one!) by Annie-Chan

  • Recommended by Marlee Cross
  • Status: Complete
  • Pairing: Nny/Devi
  • Synopsis: Nny returns from his 'vacation' and tries to bridge fences with Devi, who has found a new boyfriend and is starting to move on with her life.

The More Things Change by Artistic Suicide

  • Recommended by Dellanotte
  • Status: Complete
  • Pairing: Nny/Devi
  • Synopsis: "The day before Johnny's infamous date with Devi. Conversations, existential angst and dancing fluffy bunnies."

Bad Moon Rising by SpamWarrior

  • Recommended by Dellanotte
  • Status: Unfortunate Dead Fic
  • Pairing: Nny/Devi
  • Synopsis: "Nny and Devi have some issues to work out..." So he kidnaps her back to his place, she's not happy, demonic head voices are plotting things, and Hilarity Ensues. Notable for having Sickness, Reverend Meat, Shmee, and Spooky all in the same room, chatting away. Poor audiences.

Song Without A Name by Lady Yate-xel

  • Recommended by Roach Patrol
  • Status: Complete
  • Pairing: Eventual Nny/Edgar (that's why it's in this section). Don't remember who Edgar is? Don't worry, he was a one-shot character from the second issue that has a freakishly large fanbase.
  • Synopsis: Song Without A Name is, to put it bluntly, a Highschool AU in which the characters of JTHM are largely gay and form a rock band.

Pretty self explanatory for a work like this.

Little Red Letter, Never Forgive Me, and Spiderfly, a trilogy by Jynx's box. Extremely dark and full of squick (of course, anyone who is into Johnny the Homicidal Maniac can't mind some gore.)

  • Recommended by Maggoty Anne
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: Squee's descent into insanity.

Aegri-Somnia by anthrop

  • Recommended by Dellanotte
  • Status: Dead
  • Synopsis: "Those whom a god wishes to destroy he first drives mad." Johnny never fully escaped being a Waste-Lock, not even close, but a person's just not meant to funnel that much shit. These are the ramifications.
  • Tags: Slash, Character Death, Rape, Dead Fic

Elements/Characters of another author's work take up an equal space. Or not, given the mutual fandom of JtHM and IZ

Squee's Fantastical Field Trip of DOOM by WTF Wonder

  • Recommended by Marlee Cross
  • Status: Dead
  • Synopsis: Squee's class is going on a field trip to the zoo. Guess who volunteers to chaperone?
  • Tags: Crossover with Invader Zim

Sam & Max vs Johnny the Homicidal Maniac by Question The Majority

  • Recommended by WeirdKev27
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: The name says it all, really: Everyone's favorite comic book Freelance Police are called in to take care of everyone's favorite comic book serial killer. Rated PG for good, clean cartoony bloodless violence and comic book swear symbols.


How well does it match the trope?
