Slacktivist by Fred Clark

  • Recommended by pretty much everybody.
  • Synopsis: A very indepth (almost page by page) comemntary on Left Behind, its theology, and its worldbuilding both in and out of universe. Has gone on for more than ten years by now, and has spawned a thriving community.
  • Comments: Your comprehensive source for Left Behind commentary, at least the first three books (and counting). Highly recommended.

Mouse's Musings by Mouse

  • Recommended by geistklempner.
  • Synopsis: A chapter-by-chapter Mystery Science Theater 3000 style commentary of the entire Left Behind The Kids series, and also of Kingdom Come.
  • Comments: Less in detail than Slacktivist's, lighter on the theology, heavier on the pop culture reference and just making fun. Highly recommended.

What's behind "Left Behind" by The Old Maid

  • Recommended by geistklempner
  • Synopsis: A theological analysis of the work, from an Evangelical Christian who is critical of it. The posts were designed for a literature group within a church, and contain discussion and research ideas.
  • Comments: The rare respectful but critical commentary on the Left Behind opus.

Kingdom Come Liveblog by Lawful Good Wonk

  • Recommended by geistklempner
  • Synopsis: A play by play of the last novel that also functions as an extended recap.
  • Comments: The original blog has disappeared, so a copy was rescued from oblivion for use by roleplayers.


General Fics

Ex Harpazo by various authors

  • Recommended by geistklempner.
  • Synopsis: An entire blogs full of LB vignettes, all firmly on the snarky side. Watch Hollywood Hacking Chloe in action and see an entire generations of Stoic Woobie children grow up.
  • Comments: No longer updated, but the quality of the writing is uniformly good.

Left Behind: Secret(e) Agent by darkvampangle101

  • Recommended by geistklempner.
  • Synopsis: The Left Behind timeline is shaken by the addition of a plucky heroine.
  • Comments: Left Behind's "My Immortal".... probably.

Ahuvati and Mercy by autumnrose2010

  • Synopsis: An alternate perspective on the Tribulation and Millennial Kingdom, seen from the trenches.
  • Comments: Well written, and keeps a realistic perspective on how loss affects the protagonists.

Interactive Fics

Tripocalypse by the community

  • Recommended by geistklempner.
  • Synopsis: An alternate universe in which the Battle of Armageddon ends in stalemate. The universe can't quite handle the strain, so The Magic Comes Back.
  • Comments: This is a RPG worldbook more than a story, however, the prologues read like warped versions of "Glorious Appearing" and "Triumphant Return" respectively.
  • Now has its own section on TV Tropes.

Left Beyond Quest by the 4chan /qst/ community

  • Recommended by geistklempner.
  • Now has its own page at
  • Synopsis: Set during the last 100 years of the Millennium, it tells the story of a splinter faction of The Other Light guided by an amoral quasi-AI and a band of anonymous system administrators.
  • Comments: Contains a few racist troll posts, but is otherwise readable. The game is complete; enjoy the Gambit Pileup ending.
  • Now has its own section on TV Tropes.
