Proof that the remaining 10% is worth dying for here.

These are recommendations made by Tropers for Phantasy Star fanfics, all of which have to be signed to stay on the page. After a few samples, you will be able to judge whether you might be interested in the 'fic, based on who recommended it. No-name recommendations will be Zapped!. Nobody would back up the rec. Discussion of the recommendation is welcome on the discussion page. As such discussion is important, do remember to add the discussion page to the watchlist, if need be. 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 sexually explicit or non-canon territory. Some people just don't like it, and as we all know, Shipping is Serious Business.

Add new examples at the bottom of the section, please.

Authors, and Websites
Phantasy Star Pages
  • Recommended by Luveno
  • A substantial archive of early '00s Phantasy Star fanfiction, it has not been updated in some time, but contains some of what can be considered the best fan fic of from that time in the fandom, and certainly contenders for the best in the fandom, period.

Phantasy Star Cave

  • Recommended by Luveno
  • Despite the bleeding yellow layout, contains a growing archive of the newest fan fiction of the fandom, with an already large library of quality tales that are quickly becoming some of the best fics the fandom has seen in years.

Dezo Penguin

  • Recommended by Luveno
  • A prolific writer, he has dozens of stories in this fandom alone, let alone the literal dozens of other stories he has. Most of them are at the Phantasy Star Pages fanfic archive under the pen name Darrell Whitney, but his three Phantasy Star III chronicles are on
    • Namagomi: It's hard to find Classic PS fanfiction, so finding particularly good CPS fanfic is a real treat. Especially recommended of Dezo Penguin's works are those focusing on Alys Brangwin prior to the start of the story of PS4. Massive bonus points come in with certain details being elaborated upon from the Compendium. Even then, the portrayal of Alys is spot on to what one'd expect from her.

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.

The Forgotten Song by augmentedfourth (Link)

  • Recommended by: Luveno
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: A narrative from the POV of the composer Ustvestia, the story explores some of the changes Mother Brain brought to Algo, with a focus on the decline of the arts.
  • Advertisement:
  • Comments: The story makes an interesting parallel with some of the decline in musical learning in the modern world, and it doesn't make any effort to apply it to any non-computer related activities that have also suffered decline. You very much feel for poor Ustvestia, and you feel sad for the loss of art.

None yet. Add some!

Stories focused on the romantic relationships between the cast.

The Lights of Piata by Vicious Pink (Link)

  • Recommended by: Luveno
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: Kain has feelings for Nei, but are they mutual?
  • Comments: A sappy romantic story, with sweet, fluffy scenes and very "first love"-like descriptions; there's an innocence to it that feels exactly right.
