The forums' Nanoha fanfic thread by various authors

  • Recommended by: Nolrai Hikari, Silent Outlaw
  • This thread gets several pages worth of fiction a day, and the average quality is higher than Sturgeon's Law would suggest. (That is, more than 10% of it is worthwhile.) Particularly good for short crack, either humorous or lime, or both, but there's all kinds of stuff here. Very, very long. Bring a map, you will get lost in here.

  • Penguin's already got a bunch of individual recommendations listed further down the page, but pretty much everything he writes for this series is worth looking at if you like the Original Flavor. Blood and Spirit in particular is a must-read for fans of Suzuka and Arisa, and Stahlkönigin and the rest of The Steel Queen Chronicle are a treat for Vivio fans (Caramel Milk in particular contains 300% your daily recommended sugar intake). The rest is largely drabbles and one-shots, some of which is written for RadiantBeam's Lutecia/Vivio series Shadows and Sunrise, but it's all pretty entertaining stuff as long as you're not looking for a sweeping epic (Note that I'm only reviewing his Nanoha materials here; he's also got a bunch of work from other series that I haven't touched yet).

  • Seems like a fairly new writer who has put out a ton of fanfiction. It's all Nanoha, but whether you like action, adventure, angst, drama, or comedy (especially comedy!), there is something you'll like. His main work appears to be MGLN Crisis, of which he has two spinoffs, and another two in the works. He also has Unexpected Expectations which deals with mature subjects, and the darker Future Tense. There is also a bunch of shorts that are guaranteed to make you laugh! You can find a number of his fics on this page, and he updates often, like once a week at least.

  • She exclusively deals in NanoFate, often in AUs, though two of her bigger works, Check the Gate 2 and A Colorful Life, also have significant ViHart. Warning: while not all of her work is NSFW, the longer ones, including the linked fics, are. That's part of what spurs the recommendation; her lemons are the 10% that make you blush instead of cringe, and furthermore, it's not just a pure stream of lemony stuff; it's worked into the plot properly. (Reviews below; someone else beat me to nominating A Colorful Life, but I'd be more than happy to give Check the Gate 1&2 a slot of their own!

Star of Fate

  • Recommended by: Nightelf37
  • They seem to be an avid reader of Fanfiction for two years now (as of 2013) and has decided to take a chance at their own. What they have is apparently a Fusion Fic of Lyrical Nanoha with Harry Potter. She is open to advice and critique.

    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.

  • Synopsis: "Crash" is a pilot for the B.E.S.T. Force, a force designed to test out new technologies, and "dispose" of confiscated Mass Weapons (Translation: We get to play with missiles). He's got a suit of Powered Armor, a partner with a noted resemblance to Asuka Langley, this universe's version of Coop, and seriously bad luck when it comes to machines. He's got just enough skill to survive when the Numbers Cyborgs came after him during the Jail Scaglietti Incident, but when Riot Force Six comes over to check out B.E.S.T.'s new countermeasure for Gadget Drones, Nanoha sees potential for more than just their new AI fighter... Comes with its own trailer.

  • Status: Dormant
  • Synopsis: Sette of the Numbers has been released from prison early for model behavior.

Circuit Clout by Extrinsical

  • Recommended by: SilentOutlaw
  • Status: Complete

  • Comments: This is one long, epic, story told from Fate's perspective detailing her life if she never had the opportunity to join the TSAB. This fic swings from light, fluffy scenes to serious discussions to heart pounding action. It's one of the best fics I have ever read.

  • Crossover with: My-Otome
  • Status: Ongoing (New chapter posted in December 2021)
  • Synopsis: The TSAB has found two new Lost Logia in a remote pocket dimension — the planet Earl and its moon. Complicating matters is that Earl is inhabited by a human civilization that seems to be tapping unknowingly into the power of the planet-sized Logia to turn girls into the strategic weapons called Otome. The TSAB dispatches its two best — Nanoha Takamichi and Fate Testarossa Harlaown — to infiltrate the school that manufactures the Otome, Garderobe Academy, in the form of its two newest students. Unfortunately, their Intelligent Devices are locked down into passive scanners to prevent them from drawing too much attention to themselves. Even so, they quickly gain the nickname "The Terrors of Garderobe". And their first trimester is barely over when Arika Yumemiya appears out of the desert to claim her own place at the school.

Magical Girl Nanoha 1/2? by Lost Star

  • Recommended by: Nanya, Looney Toons
  • Crossover with: Ranma ½
  • Status: Dead
  • Synopsis: A simple meeting between two characters creates changes that snowball from a small chance encounter. The character interactions are just hilarious and very much in character for the characters involved.

There's just one small problem; Nanoha is newly crippled and still recovering from her timeskip injuries, but if the Senshi ask for her help she'll give it regardless of what it may cost her. Luckily Fate and Arf are around to stop the Senshi from bothering Nanoha while she's on medical leave, but when Beryl gets wind of Serenity's return and the Senshi mistake Fate for a witch keeping their Princess under a spell... well, there's really only one way this can end.

  • Status: Dead
  • Synopsis: In the great city of Tokyo, Ranma and Genma Saotome arrive at the Tendo Dojo to fulfill Genma's dream of joining the twin schools of Anything Goes Martial Arts. That's great, but Ranma has much more pressing issues than romance, like the fact that he turns into a magical girl when splashed with cold water, or the fact that he's best friends with the ghost of that same magical girl and is very interested in remedying that whole "ghost" thing...

It Could Always Be Worse by Shaun Garin

  • Recommended by: Knightof Lsama
  • Crossover with: Top Gear
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: To anyone familiar with Top Gear, it's pretty much Exactly What It Says on the Tin. For those not familiar with it, it's best described as Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond, and James May go to Mid-Childa, get their hands on some local cars and faff about.

  • Crossover with: Fate/stay night
  • Status: Dead
  • Synopsis: It was just a small wish: To live with their master and their friends as those uneventful days passed by, to see him grow up as he chased his ideals by his own strength. To become an ally of justice; a hero who can save everyone.
  • Comments: A story in which the Book Of Darkness binds itself to Emiya Shirou instead of Yagami Hayate. A interesting idea with a good deal of potential, and a greater amount of work put into it. Even though it is still in its infancy, it delivers some well-done character interactions. The initial development of the Wolkenritter's feelings towards Shirou as their master is truly endearing and heartwarming.

Verboten Anthology by daniel-gudman

  • Recommended by: Keimarios
  • Crossover with: Revelation Space
  • Status: Dead

Mado Nano Crossover by Bun150 (translated by Life4Kaoru)

Twist of Fate by SkywalkerT-65

  • Recommended by: LSand91
  • Crossover with: Puella Magi Madoka Magica
  • Status: Dormant
  • Synopsis: It is not an understatement to say that Nanoha, Fate and Homura have been through many dangerous experiences. However, none have been quite like this. For when Homura's attempt at resetting the timeline goes further and merges two worlds that should never have met...the situation can never be the same.
  • Other: Taking a different twist on the typical Nano/Mado scenario, this fic merges the universes- quite literally -and is already focusing heavily on the character interactions.

  • Comments: Takes place between A's and Strikers and begins just before RWBY: Volume 2. Does a good job of having the crossover characters throw For Want of a Nail twists into Volume 2's plot without completely derailing it.

  • Pairing(s): None as of the June 1, 2021 update. Although there is some Threesome Subtext
  • Comments: A very good fic that almost seamlessly blends the Persona universe with the Nanoha universe. While there is some tension with Ren's lack of trust of the TSAB, though not without reason, the way he acts as a sort of mentor to Nanoha in a world teacher sense is very genuine in his nature. It should be forewarned however, that the fic does note that Nanoha and Fate, are romantically attracted to Ren in way that even he can't dismiss as a simple Precocious Crush (though he doesn't recipocate), although it does factor in heavily to the story and won't beat your head in with it, it will remind you from time and time again.

Alternative Title(s): Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha
