     The Data Fragment series by Chisaku (Currently unaccessible/Outdated) 

On May 13, 2018, Chisaku released ReWritten as a reboot/revamp for the series and subsequently deleted all previous fics related to The Data Fragment. As of August 3, 2018 however, ReWritten has not seen any further updates/releases.
The Data Fragment by Chisaku (Adventure/Supernatural)
  • Recommended by Slider no. 11
  • First entry of "The Data Fragment" trilogy
  • Synopsis: When a lone boy named Chisaku lands himself into Gamindustri, not much is known about him. Why is he there? His need for answers leads him to go on a quest to figure it out, but will he get the answers in time?
  • Comments: Recently one of the better Neptunia fics out there, which focuses on an OC that has every justifiable reason as to why he's so damn awesome and badass.
  • Status: Complete (Deleted)

The Hollow Shell by Chisaku (Supernatural)

  • Recommended by Slider no. 11
  • Sequel to "The Data Fragment"
  • Synopsis: Chisaku has once again landed himself into Gamindustri, revisiting his past decisions. Whatever his purpose is to return to this world, his decisions will decide whether he is kept there forever, or banished from it for eternity.
  • Comments: Sequel Escalation is surely in effect when the sequel of a mildly dark fic opens up with a homage to the Alice killings of "Alice Human Sacrifice"... Also an Even Better Sequel.
  • Status: Complete (Deleted)

CreationDimension by Chisaku (Supernatural/Horror)

  • Recommended by Slider no. 11
  • Interquel for "The Hollow Shell" and the upcoming entry in the trilogy
  • Synopsis: A new dark world on the brink of destruction, one where there are new CPUs, or old ones? When two of our most beloved CPUs enter this dimension, will they be able to save it from its doom?
  • Comments: Chisaku (the author) really doesn't disappoint with this new story of his. Having his traditionally dark writing style mostly in effect, it tackles an Alternate Universe where the more antagonistic Makers of this dimension have taken reign as replacements for the missing counterparts of the Hyperdimension goddesses, who were apparently as bad as the Makers here.
  • Status: Complete (Deleted)

The Lonely God by Chisaku (Supernatural)

  • Recommended by Slider no. 11
  • Sequel to "The Hollow Shell"
  • Synopsis: Finally used to his life as a CPU, Chisaku continues to question his existence. Going as far as to question his title as a God.
  • Comments: This is it, the last of The Data Fragment trilogy. From the title, the summary, and the prevalent tone of the chapters, The Lonely God is shaping up as a far more subdued and emotional fic than the last two in the trilogy. Time will only tell the fate Chisaku has seemingly resigned to by the end of this story.
  • Status: Dead (9 chapters) (Deleted)

Hyperdimension Neptunia: From Earth We Come: DISC ONE and DISC TWO by 9arm
  • Recommended by Solatorobo
  • Synopsis: Four young males from the U.S. have been transported to the land of Gamindustri. Through a chance encounter, the youngsters discover that they are able to transform into CP Us. Together, they will travel across Gamindustri in hopes of learning the reason for their transformation all while befriending new people and exposing themselves to the wonders of their new world...
  • Comments: This story is the first part of the "From Earth We Come" duology. Mixing in certain real-life references into the world of Neptunia, the author strives to make this story a fresh and entertaining take to the situation of Earthlings arriving in Gamindustri.

  • Status: DISC ONE: Complete. DISC TWO: Ongoing.

"Neppy, I Blew Up The Histy" [1] by 9arm

  • Recommended by Solatorobo
  • Synopsis: After an experiment involving a potion went wrong, Histoire ended up becoming larger than what she normally is. As Histoire tries to adjust to life with her new enlarged self, what will happen?
  • Comments: Prior to writing "Hyperdimension Neptunia: From Earth We Come DISC ONE" (see above), the author decided to enter the world of Neptunia with a simple tale. With inspiration from the movie, "Honey, I Blew Up the Kid", the result is this hilarious short story with emphasis on everyone's favorite book fairy, Histoire.

Hyperdemise Nepgear Re:Try by Zetta1001 (Adventure, Friendship)

  • Recommended by RageDragon
  • Status: Dormant; last updated September 2017.
  • Synopsis: It's a known fact that going through a near-death experience is enough to dramatically change people. But what about death itself? What about several deaths? If one were able to go back to before their demise, just how much of the same person would they be? Not entirely, if the case of a certain undying girl is to be believed.
  • Advertisement:
  • Comments: A surprisingly well-written story which not only explores the traumatized mind of someone who can revive Re:Zero style, but also the author's interpretations of both the cast's personalities and the relatively bleak world of Hyperdimension Neptunia mk2, while never stepping into Dark and Edgy territory. As expected of a Neptunia mk2 story, Drama and Humor are present, the former considerably more so than the latter but not nearly enough to destroy the light-heartedness that constantly appears.

Best Friends Forever? by BugDevil (Humor/Romance)

  • Recommended by Ryan028
  • Synopsis: This is a story about friendship and love. Even the former is a grand achievement for Lastation's CPU Noire. After she has finally made her first official friend in K-sha, where does that leave Neptune? In a strange turn of events the protagonist of protagonists and the former Gold Third member engage in a competition over who has the right to call herself Noire's Best Friend!
  • Comments: Even if Neptune, K-sha and Noire's antics are the main drawn to this story, you can't help but fall in love with the whole cast, the author manages to portray the personalities of every character perfectly, give them enough screentime and even goes as far as go in deep with some of them, you might get confused at certain points, but at the end, everything will make sense and you'll realize you always knew it was gonna end this way.
  • Status: Complete.

The stress of ruling a nation by Word spinner (Hurt/comfort, drama)

  • Recommended by Some Random Tosser
  • Synopsis: Uni and Noire get into a fight after an unknown event, causing Black Sister to run away to Planeptune.
  • Comments: This is a surprisingly emotional one-shot that really gets into the relationship between Uni and Noire. It dives right into their characters and gives them whole new dimensions.
  • Status: One-shot

Overheat by Kuugen the Fox (Romance, drama)

  • Recommended by Spectate
  • Status: Dormant; last updated May 2018
  • Synopsis: Gamindustri is ravaged by the all-out war between Lastation, Planeptune, Leanbox and Lowee. Open animosity between nations, research into deadly and outlawed weapons, each of the four super powers has to always take it still one step further to triumph over their enemies. In a world like that, love is a rare thing to find and even rarer between enemies. And yet it exists.

The Proposal by Blade of Justice (Romance)

  • Recommended by Spectate
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: Planeptune is on its last limbs. Shares are at an all-time low, Neptune has run herself ragged trying to support what's left of her country, and Nepgear has been comatose for weeks. Fearing the imminent demise of their nation, Histoire summons the other CPUs to request that they save Planeptune, using the only means left: One of the CPUs... must marry Neptune.
  • Comments: It must be said that while very dramatic at times and Neptune can get a little mopey, though understandable, the story is pretty good, though it tugs on the heart-strings at various places. Putting up with it all and getting to the final chapters is all worth it though.

''Warm Food by Zdood (Humor, Romance (Yuri))

  • Recommended by Feinoha
  • Pairings: Neptune/Noire
  • Synopsis: Noire invites Neptune over to try her food.
  • Status: One-shot.

''Heartmas Rush by Zdood (Humor, Romance (Yuri))

  • Recommended by Feinoha
  • Pairings: Neptune/Noire
  • Synopsis: It's Heartmas Eve (read: Christmas, since Gamindustri has no Christ), and Neptune hasn't gotten Noire a present yet... will she be able to get one in time?
  • Status: One-shot.

As You Like It by ghostdominion6 (Humor, Romance (Yuri))

  • Recommended by Eldritch
  • Pairings: Neptune/Noire, IF/5pb, traces of Nepgear/Uni
  • Synopsis: Loosely connected love stories, told by a poet who has consumed too much HAM and CHEESE. Neptune and Noire... consummate their relationship! Nepgear does... something too! IF also has a subplot? Sequel is out already?
  • Rating: M
  • Comments: Relatively short and snacky, complete with deliciously over-the-top narration. It's rated M for a reason, mind, but it's still very sweet and charming and funny.
  • Status: One-shot.

A Lonely Birthday by Vonhunter (Sad)

  • Recommended by Jacob 175
  • Synopsis: Taking place after the bad ending of the second game, Nepgear reflects on the time with the other goddesses.
  • Comments: A short and bittersweet one-shot. There are some cute moments in the flashbacks to help balance the somber tone.
  • Status: One-shot.

Neptunia Mk2: Conquest Ending: Resolution by LastationLover5000 (Action, Drama)

  • Recommended by LastationLover5000
  • Synopsis: There's a question on every Neptunia fan's mind; what happened after the Conquest Ending of Neptunia Mk2? What happened to Nepgear, to Gameindustri, the Oracles, and all of that? Was Nepgear stopped? Did she regret her actions? This little mini-series, Resolution, will address those things as best I can! Join Schwarz as she tries to save Gameindustri!
  • Comments: Self-promotion is never a good thing, but I don't think there are too many fanfictions that explore the Conquest Ending, so I wanted to get mine out to feasting eyes.
  • Status: Complete.

Purple and Iris by YuriLover567 (Family/Humor)

  • Recommended by Slider no. 11
  • Pairings: Neptune/Plutia, natch. Nepgear/Uni, and as of Chapter 11 onwards, Nepia/Peashy
  • Synopsis: Neptune and Plutia have a little too much fun one night. As a result, through the power of the Sharicite, they make a daughter.
  • Comments: While the chapters are short, its damned hilarity makes up for it. Try not to break into a grin or laugh outright as you read it.
  • Status: Complete. (Deleted)

Judge's Weakness by N.kirby (Romance/Humor)

  • Recommended by Slider no. 11
  • Pairings: Judge/Geya, oh so much. Possibly Brave/Uni.
  • Synopsis: In an attempt to save her sister, a CPU candidate thinks she finds the weak-point of CFW Judge to defeat him! In a turn of events, she is captured and… Learns something rather embarrassing about him.
  • Comments: It's a fic. About JUDGE! Oh, and it's also about his unlikely relationship with CPU Candidate of Esenkay turned ASIC lackey (through her own volition even!) Geya.
  • Status: Complete.

Hyperdimension Neptunia Overload by BreadNotDead (Adventure/Humor)

  • Recommended by Epsilon
  • Synopsis: Overlord Momus was only a fake myth made-up by Arfoire. As it turns out, he's real.
  • Comments: Basically a story about an Original Character taking on the role of a nerfed Evil Overlord and getting involved in the shenanigans of Planeptune. Add in a dash of Large Ham courtesy of Momus and a Lemony Narrator and you have one entertaining tale.
  • Status: Dead; last updated November 2016

Hyperdimension Neptunia is Real! (Link) by Some Random Tosser

  • Recommended by 017Bluefield
  • Synopsis: One day, due to a faulty PS3, Neptune of Gamindustri appears in front of a certain teen and takes him there. He ends up in Gamindustri and he now must "assist" Neptune and co. in their epic quest to retrieve the Key Fragments. Preferably without dying.
  • Comments: Comically-applied common sense in a Console War-burdened world that lacks much of it? Sign me up! Now, this fic is based on the original game and its story, but the author deals with it all in interesting ways. It also goes into the unexplored parts of a Self-Insert Fic, including what's going on back home. If all that sounds interesting to you and I haven't screwed this up, go right on ahead!
  • Status: Indefinite hiatus

In This Economy (Humor/Friendship) by Some Random Tosser

  • Recommended by Slider no. 11
  • Synopsis: How the heck does someone get a job when they literally look like an imp?
  • Comments: It's a little one-shot featuring Linda and Rei. That alone made me like and read it, but SRT's natural and human way of writing these two ex-villians and the story's somewhat mellow tone made me absolutely love it. I personally recommend it to all the other Linda and Rei fans (who aren't me) and those who like epilogue-styled stories.
  • Status: One-shot

Left Behind Tomorrow (Friendship/Hurt/Comfort) by Some Random Tosser

  • Recommended by Slider no. 11
  • Pairings: Cave/Chika, bless.
  • Synopsis: I close my eyes every night, hoping this time is the last.
  • Comments: You thought Cave was The Stoic? Read this.
  • Status: One-shot

Omegadimension Neptunia: The New Generation by megaswifter21

  • Recommended by Nanya
  • Synopsis: After annoying "Darksty" a bit too much, Neptune finds herself warped into another new dimensional adventure where she finds Gamindustri in really bad shape after the Conquest ending of Hyperdimension Neptunia mk2
  • Comments: Neptune not only has to Set Right What Once Went Wrong in the world by saving her sister, she needs to unite the new generation of Goddesses and stop The Corruption that's taken over Nepgear. The story even comes complete with Multiple Endings.
    • This is by far the best Neptunia fanfic I have ever read and it's not even close. Neptune being the Cool Big Sis and Older and Wiser of the group in the fic while still being Neptune is a joy to behold.
  • Status: Complete.

Greenlit Trouble by HistyIsPissty

  • Recommended by MaracaRin
  • Synopsis: Vert gets a candidate. Hooray! Except it’s a male. Plus, he’s got spacial powers and a penchant for mischief. Let chaos, yanderes, and trains ensue.
  • Comments: The most striking thing about this fic is how faithful it is to the feel of its original series. Sure, males, but otherwise this story keeps the joking tone of the previous games without sacrificing heart or emotional moments. And while Neptune may call Sync a Gary Stu, he’s quite a bit more nuanced than other OCs.
  • Status: Ongoing (last updated November 2020)

The works of DeraldSny.

  • Recommended by Nanya
  • His Neptunia fics all have a good quality to them and there's enough of them that they should all be mentioned here.
  • Comments: Of note is the Rei Ryghts: Attorney at Law (parody of Phoenix Wright, of course) fic series where everyone from Nepgear, to K-Sha, to Original Characters to Rei Ryghts herself goes on trial for crimes that were committed and the situation looks pretty bad for the defendants. Mother's Day: Ultradimension Style which is a cute stand alone story in the midst of the Rei Ryghts stories and finally "The Misadventures of Hyperdimension Peashy" which focuses on an adult Peashy that was born in the Hyperdimension, rather than the Peashy we all know and love from the Ultradimension.

Echoes of the Dark by Nanya.

  • Recommended by Dkbananaramma
  • Synopsis: Neptune ends up in yet ANOTHER different dimension. Only this one is dark and twisted.
  • Comments: An amazing darkfic that explores the concept of evil goddesses and the effects they bring to not only the world at large, but the people and land they supposedly rule. Currently the only Neptunia fic with over 1000 reviews. Some reviews are even saying it should be the next mainline game.
  • Status: Complete at 100 main chapters, 4 epilogues, 1 prologue, 1 afterword and 10 interludes and what-if chapters.

HyperDementia Neptunia: Welcome to our Dimension by Shattersoul

  • Recommended by narukaze
  • Status: Ongoing
  • Synposis: It's time to wake up in a forest somewhere, and figure out just where on Earth... Well, Gamindustri, you go from here. Slightly different plot progression.
  • Comments: Yet another Self-Insert Fic, but it's one of the best I've ever read. Derek (the self-insert) gets no "cheats", but frequently manages to divert the plot through a combination of leveraging every advantage he can and sheer chutzpah. He also isn't a total emo, unlike some other Neptunia SIs, although he does have some angst in his past that he works through over the course of the story.
