Authors and Websites

Poe's Daughter

  • Recommended by Troperess*
Comments: Author has created several Mortal Kombat stories in an entire series that primarily focuses on Sub-Zero and later his daughter. Her characterization of Sub-Zero is unique from most and her characters in general are all interesting and well-written, including her OCs.


  • Recommended by Troperess*
Comments: Author has written several Liutana stories, with most being oneshots or drabbles, her longer stories are just as good, although most of them are incomplete. Regardless, if you like Liutana or just Kitana as a character, this author is a must.

Michael Young History

Comments: Author has written multiple complete Subscorp fics in an omegaverse timeline that explore a depth to multiple characters and is as focused on plot as it is on sex. Warnings that it is very NSFW.
