Skywalker Syndrome by lloydskywalkers

  • Recommended by hoodie361
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: Statistically speaking, Lloyd had always known his chances of keeping all his limbs weren't exactly great, but that knowledge really doesn't help a whole lot now that he's down an entire arm. Luke Skywalker definitely had it easier, no matter what Nya says.

The Ice Emperor and the Earth Dragon by Mc Fane Ly

  • Recommended by hoodie361
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: Getting thrown into a far off realm hadn’t been a purposeful decision on Cole’s behalf, but it wasn’t one that he’d change. Following Zane into a desolate wasteland of snow and ice with a broken mech, a corrupting scroll; and nothing else, he’d rather be trapped with his brother than still be at home and wondering about his well-being. Whether he’d lost him all over again. Then a stranger disrupted the fragile routine they’d established, and Cole was still willing to protect his waylaid brother.

    Crossovers and A Us 
Crush it Cole originally by daydreamlife, adopted by Stories Are Magic
  • Recommended by Totally Epic Nerd
  • Status: Complete.
  • Synopsis: When Cole, a character from the arcade game 'Fix it Jay Junior', tires of being the villain, he'll go on an epic journey through game worlds. With the unexpected help of two siblings from Samurai's Duty, a young glitch from Sugar Rush, and the very hero he has grown to despise, he's out to prove that even if he's the 'bad guy', doesn't mean he's a bad guy. Wreck it Ralph AU!
  • Pairings: Canon for both, meaning Hero's Cuties or Jay/Nya depending on what you want to call it.

Tinkerella by Pebble 900

  • Recommended by Totally Epic Nerd
  • Status: Complete.
  • Synopsis: When Nya's father dies, leaving her an orphan in the care of her evil stepmother Misako, she is left with no friends other then Cole, the cook, Lloyd the butler, and Zane, an invention of her and her father. But when Prince Jay holds a science fair rather than a traditional ball, she'll need all the help she can get from her godbrother, Kai.
  • Pairings: Jaya.

The Grass is always Greener by Alternate link: The Grass is Always Greener

  • Recommended by Lluvia Wolf
  • Crossover: Between the movie and the show, with some brief glimpses of some other worlds (Ninja Turtles, Star Wars, others)
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: In a dire situation, Garmadon wishes on the Mega Weapon to ensure his son's safety. Neither he nor the ninja were expecting Lloyd to vanish and leave a strange teenager in his place. Meanwhile a world away, the Secret Ninja Force pays a visit to the formerly evil volcano, only to be left wondering where this green munchkin came from, and where their leader is?
  • Pairings: Some background Jaya and some slight Koko/Garmadon
  • The author also has two stories which are ongoing, Greener Pastures which is a series of oneshots taking place before, during, or after the main story and a sequel In Need of Polish. Sequel has more romance (Zane/Pixal and Kai/Skylor) but still has action and bad guys to take care of. All three stories are great reads, funny, heartwarming, and exciting.
