Proof that the remaining 10% is worth having a crocodile bite your hand off for here.

These are recommendations made by tropers for Peter Pan fanfics, all of which have been signed to stay on the page. No-name recommendations will be deleted, without discussion. Nobody would back up the rec. Feel free to add a fanfic of your own to the list, but remember to use the template found here.

You can also add to the current recommendations if you want. Refrain from posting Conversation in the Main Page though; that goes in the discussion page.

Do warn when a fanfic may head into romantic/sexual or non-canon territory. Some people just don't like it, and as we all know, Shipping is Serious Business.

Authors, and Websites

None yet.

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.

  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: Peter. Wendy. Neither of them are ever gonna give.

East of Kensington by students from Chapman University Dodge College Of Film And Media Arts

  • Recommended by: Chloe Lee 12
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: Years after Peter Pan and the Lost Boys have overthrown the pirates, Peter visits London to return Wendy to Neverland and is kidnapped by a mysterious Stranger residing in the decaying remains of the Darling House. Peter is forced to confront a harsh reality that challenges his innocence.
  • Comments: A truly tragic take on the aftermath of Wendy's adventure that could have happened if the story had been more than a story and actually occurred in real life.

Excerpts from the Darling Brothers by Abbl2

  • Recommended by: Senshi Sun
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: John and Michael look back on their time at Never Never Land.
  • Comments: Very well written. Michael's part could be a Tear Jerker.

Fas est et ab hoste doceri by Mistress of Sarcasm

  • Recommended by: greeneyesrock, Dame-Amaryllis
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: Wendy has decided to change the story. The mermaid stabs the prince and saves herself, because maybe, just maybe, Happily Ever After is overrated.
  • Comments: Could be a Tear Jerker for some. An alternate look at what would happen if Hook captured her. Very excellently splendorific.

A Hundred Years Ago by Buttering Parsnips

  • Recommended by: Roach Patrol
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: Wendy learns the trick of tidying up childrens' dreams while they sleep, and finds out things that even Peter no longer remembers — in this case, exactly who Captain Hook used to be, and how he became who he was.
  • Comments: It's achingly sad and beautiful, without ever being angsty or self-indulgent, and I think the style of the fic mimics Barrie's work astonishingly well.

Neverland by Anonymous

  • Recommended by: Wizard Joni
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: A short story of how Captain Hook seeks to regain his lost daughter. Here, Peter Pan is a fey creature who steals children.
  • Comments: What started off as a relatively normal RPG thread soon morphs into EPIC storytelling. Manly Tears are quick to follow.

Pan by Bill Mudron

  • Recommended by: Stardizzy
  • Status: Dormant
  • Synopsis: A three volume webcomic prequel and sequel to Peter Pan, taking place in 1841, 1900 and 2008 respectively.
  • Comments: Haven't actually read this beyond the first couple of pages. Still, the art looks fine and so does the writing.

The Secret Of Neverland by Breech Loader

  • Recommended by: Harley Quinn hyenaholic
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: What is the real meaning of Neverland? The bo'sun Smee is one of the few who knows the secret, which is contemplated upon while aboard the Jolly Roger, listening to a lullaby carried on the wind.
  • Comments: A short but bitter-sweet fanfic with deep insight into the meaning and characterizations of the original story, and how Hooks, Smees, Pirates and Lost Boys stay and leave. Set in a modern-day Neverland where Pirates are women as well as men, with Smee as a middle-aged woman. It's a little bit of a Tear Jerker with its implications of why Smee came to Neverland, and the final line that "Neverland makes even Pirates forget."

The So Much Quieter AU by enjolradrat/akestrelforaknave

  • Recommended by: Charlotteelizabeth
  • Status: Semi-complete note 
  • Synopsis: It's been years since the Darlings and Lost Boys left the Neverland and though they were afraid of adulthood then, nothing could have prepared them for the true horrors of growing up. With the First World Warís impact felt right at the heart of the family, Wendy and The Lost Boys must try to remain strong, though, everyone canít help but wonder, should they have ever left?
  • Comments: Quite the Tear Jerker, but has some lighter moments. Shows the depressing reality of grieving families in post-WWI Britain. Trigger warnings for mentions of death, depression, PTSD, suicide, and substance abuse. Contains many OCs, most notably the 'Lost Ladies' who marry into the family and their children. Also a subplot involving Wendy marrying one of the Lost Boys (this is canon in Barrie's work, the author tried to justify it and make it a little less weird in SMQ). Peter is not exactly prominent when it comes to appearances, but he's discussed a lot. Takes a few cues from Peter Pan in Scarlet in parts, but is overall it's own thing, a tragicomedy about a big dysfunctional family of Lost People who really do love one another.

Stories focused on the romantic relationships between the cast.

First Kiss by Kimberly-A

  • Recommended by: The Dark Duchess
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: When Peter is in danger, Tinkerbell and Wendy become unlikely allies to try to save the boy they both love. But why exactly does Peter need saving? And from what?
  • Pairing: Peter/Wendy
  • Comments: As someone who adores Peter and Wendy together, this is is a personal favorite of mine. The writing is exquisite, staying true to the style of J. M. Barrie. Peter and Wendy are in character, and the relationship between the two is beautiful. By the time the story ends, you're genuinely sad that it's over.

Storyteller by Kimberly-A (Also available here)

  • Recommended by: Shadao
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: Taking place 3 years after the 2003 movie, 16 years-old Wendy is living with Aunt Millicent to be tutored as a proper lady ready for marriage, a life that she discovers to be suffocating and miserable. But during a carriage ride, she encounters a boy in disheveled clothes who reminds her of Peter Pan. She dreams about Neverland once again as she interacts with the familiar-looking homeless boy more and more. But she reconnects to her past through this boy, an old adversary emerges to finish his revenge...
  • Pairing: Peter/Wendy
  • Comments: Writing a story where Wendy ends up staying with Peter in Neverland forever as a child is always a problematic premise for many reasons. Yet, this story manages to pull it off by exploring Wendy's mysterious connection to Neverland, and Peter dealing with his own feelings for Wendy as he lives out in streets of London with no memory and growing up. By the time the story ends on a bittersweet note, you'll find more sweetness than sadness for these characters.
