Proof that the remaining 10% is worth getting Exiled for here.

Magic: Expanded Multiverse

Honestly, doesn't get any better than a community devoted to a believable expanded universe, including several novels.

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.

Fragments: An Alara Anthology by pretty much everyone on the flavour and storylines forum.

  • Recommended by Peryton.
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: Several tales about each of the shards of Alara, before, during and after the Conflux.
  • Comments: Frankly one of the best fanfic anthologies out there, it expresses a variety of prose styles and narrative juices, adorned by a beautiful medieval-inspired page designs. This is a fanfic in the true meaning of the word, as each writer has absolute grasp in the source material, and work with it better than even the official novel.

Shards In Peril by DragonFelicis

  • Recommended by The Pie Kid.
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: This story features Dominaria being trapped in another shard. This time more than Dominaria was trapped within. Nine other Planes were sealed within and with those nine come ten Planeswalkers and a plot that could destroy the Multiverse itself.

  • Comments: This story is a sort of prequel to Vadam's Redemption. It's not finished yet but the writing is alot better than Vadam's Redemption. This story also introduces alot of other OC's

Planar Chaos Dragons Of Tarkir

  • Recommended by Shimegi.
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: A fan Planeswalker's Guide to a Planar Chaos scenario, where Tarkir's dragon broods were enemy coloured and the clans dropped the ally colour instead of the enemy one.
  • Comments: It has a few spelling mistakes, but it's rather creative and detailed, playing quite a bit with enemy colours in worldbuilding, each clan being well balanced while displaying rather subtle and nuanced philosophies. It manages to be quite chilling at times, following well on Maro's statement of a Tarkir worse off than before, while managing to not be too depressing.

The Broken Biomancer

  • Recommended by Prodigy Gaming YT
  • Status: Complete.
  • Synopsis: An origin story for the Simic Combine parun, who we know almost nothing about. The story tells the tale of a child abandoned for his birth defects, and sets out to fix the broken world.
  • Comments: Manages to give an in-depth backstory for the parun, as well as explains why we know nothing about him today. Slightly tear-jerking, and worth the short read.

Crossover Fics
Stories featuring characters or settings from unrelated works of fiction.

Vadam's Redemption

  • Recomended by The Pie Kid
  • Status: Complete
  • Crossover with: Harry Potter
  • Synopsis: Vadam is a young(ish) Planeswalker who has had the hardest life imaginable. He arrives on the Plane of Earth through a moment of desperation and meets an old ghost who sets him on the course of redemption. But not all sins are forgotten and the oldest mortal evil remaining is still looking for him.
  • Comments: The story is a crossover between Harry Potter and Magic: The Gathering, it starts off a little slow and introduces the authors own character but the story shows promise and bearing with the first few chapters to read further is good... not great but the author states the story to be the first thing they've written. The story is worth checking out.
