You'd think that with a story that ends on such bittersweet note, and a world this large and full of potential, Iron Blooded Orphans would have more fans rushing in to create their own retelling of events. But nope! This is a small fandom with only a few stories. But there are a few worth looking into.
The Devil's Reprisal by Diablo Snowblind
- Recommended by JSRGN
- Synopsis: A time travel story of Mikazuki returning to the beginning after the final battle. Decidedly Peggy Sue.
- Comments: The author just started it, but this story already looks like something special. There's a lot of background development, a dark tone, and a unique Tranquil Fury portrayal of Ace Pilot Mikazuki. The story is extremely well written, and the author doesn't look like he's going to bother sticking to the canon storyline.

- Crossover: Mass Effect
- Comments: As stated in the synopsis, this story sets in an alternate universe where the Reapers are gone and focus on the ramifications of a alien ship appearing in the middle of Season 1. Also read originally on Space Battles Forum.
