Kuroko No Basuke Kink Meme


  • Recommended by: Wolfshaman 84
    • This author has my favorite Kurobasu fabrics. Her fanfic got me into fandom. She has a "When shadows meet series": where Kuroko and Takao are friends. "A single step a thousand miles": a series of drabble set through out series. "When opposites attract": a really well written Hanamiya/Kuroko story. If you are a Kurobasu fan you really check out her fanfics.

     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.

They are so good at keeping characters in well character, and even adding to them making them more human. The story's they write do so well in handling the issues the author writes about so nothing is usually wiped to the side.

One Final Game: A Romantic Tale in 3 Parts by the_mythologist

  • Recommended by Pitac 89
  • Status: Complete
  • Summary: "It was, Akashi supposed, his fault. Partially. Probably. After all, if he hadn’t broken his arm in a fall during his bi-weekly horseback riding sessions, Rakuzan would have undoubtedly been the champions for his third and final year there. Were that the case, none of his friends would have descended into insanity, acted inappropriately, and made uninformed decisions in order to dwell there permanently. As it was, it happened quite differently."

  • Pairing(s): Generation of Miracles/OC
  • Tags: Humor, Romance
  • Comments:
    • I've read a lot of Reverse Harem or GOM/OC fics and rarely do I fall in love with one. I can safely say that this tops my favorite GOM/OC fic. Why? I love the OC, Hana. Her character is so hilarious that I don't find her boring and her, being able to mesh well with the other characters doesn't help me in the shipping mess that I'm in. True that she has a lot of flaws but she's not mary sue and that adds cookie points on her favor haha.

  • Comments:
    • Very rarely do you come across a piece of literature where emotions are captured so perfectly and purely. There are many people who say fanfiction is the trash of the Internet, that they are all badly written ramblings of untalented fans. We say "go to hell". This piece is truly a diamond in the rough.
