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

These are recommendations made by Tropers for Fan Fics set in the Sky High universe, all of which have been signed. 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.


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

Author Recommendations

Jeune Chat

  • Recommended by: euan112358
  • Pairings: Will/Layla, Zack/Magenta
  • From her defining fanfic War And Peace In Mind (recommended below), this author plays the concept of world-building to perfection, expanding the concept of a Superhero School into an entire world that is built around the existence of superheroes and super-villains. The focus is mainly on Warren and his growth into a hero, with many side-stories involving his everyday life also present, such as his birthday.

General Fics
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.

War and Peace in Mind by Jeune Chat.

  • Recommended by: Nothingtoseehere, euan112358
  • Status: Complete
  • Trope page in progress.
  • Synopsis: A future fic from Warren's prospective. Starts with his childhood and the events of the movie and kicks off from there. Has a surprising amount of world building of a society where superpowered beings are common knowledge and expanding on a question left by the movie- namely, what was Royal Pain planning on doing with buses full of superpowered babies?
  • Pairing(s): Layla/Will, Zack/Magenta, Ethan/OC. Eventual Warren/OC.
  • Tags: Drama, Sci-Fi

Mother Nature: A tale of Chaos by Nival Vixen.

  • Recommended by: Helly
  • Status: Ongoing
  • Synopsis: "The Heavens and Earth rose out of Chaos." The simplest of events can change a person deeply. Other not-so-simple events can change a person irrevocably; even if they become someone they had never imagined.
  • Pairing(s): Layla/Warren, side Will/Magenta and Zach/ Ethan
  • Tags: Adventure, Romance
  • Set about a year after the end of the movie, this fic mainly focuses on Layla who, after her mother's death, starts exploring her villainous side. Currently being updated, it's rated M in prevision of future chapters and it's a safe read so far (chapter 22). It's beautifully written, and the characterization is wonderful. The best Layla/Warren fic around, and one of the best Sky High fanfictions. Give it a shot.

Coffee, Tea, or Radioactive Waste By NeoVenus22

  • Recommended by Bee 123
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: "Today, she was actually kind of nervous about meeting Zach alone in a public setting that could be considered date-like."
  • Pairing: Zach/Magenta
  • Comments: Sweet and funny, with a great Magenta voice.

Lost Together By aunt_zelda

  • Recommended by Bee 123
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: Layla heads north, deep into national parks and protected forests. To find herself, she hopes. To find the answer to what she wants from life. To find out whether it’s college, or heroes, or maybe one of those ecological villains, that she should step towards. She doesn’t expect to find Warren Peace.
  • Pairing: Layla/Warren
  • Comments: It makes perfect sense that both Layla and Warren would be in a national park together, albeit for different reasons. A beautiful little fic.

True Ivy By thecarlysutra

  • Recommended by Bee 123
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: Laylas Pov. "There is a pile of clothing between the bed and the hamper, and the two of them may still have rubble in their hair, though Layla does her best to clean them up after they’re done saving the world."
  • Pairing: Warren Peace/Will Stronghold/Layla Williams
  • Comments: Its nice to see Layla grown into her powers and identity.
