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.

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.

Sliders Reborn, by ireactions. You can read it here.

  • Recommended by kitkatness, The Jovian
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: Twenty years after the first slide, Quinn, Wade, Rembrandt and Arturo must step back into the vortex and begin their adventures once again.
  • Comments: This six part series of PDF screenplays is a fan-created twentieth-anniversary story for Sliders. Set from 2015 - 2016, the story catches up with Quinn, Wade, Rembrandt and Arturo two decades after the Pilot episode and 15 years after the unresolved cliffhanger of "The Seer." Much has changed between 2000 and 2015: the Sliders are alive and well and have been home for 14 years on an Earth untouched by Kromaggs.
    • The reasons behind their revival and homecoming are a mystery within the story. Wade, Rembrandt and Arturo have rebuilt their lives and retired from traveling the interdimension. Quinn Mallory is missing. But when reality starts to break down, threatening the entire multiverse, Quinn must reunite with his friends and begin a new journey through the multiverse.

Slide Effects, by ireactions, based on a plot by series co-creator Tracy Tormé

  • Recommended by kitkatness
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: Quinn Mallory wakes up to find himself home — in fact, it's like he never left and time has been rewound to the Pilot. It's 1995: Wade is working at Doppler Computers, Professor Arturo is teaching, Rembrandt is a musician and only Quinn remembers sliding. Haunted by five years of traumatic memories, Quinn begins to wonder if he's losing his mind or if something else has gone terribly wrong...
  • Comments: Sliders is a show that lost 75% of the cast, most of them suffering horrible deaths. It is a depressing series in the end, and "Slide Effects" seeks to turn that around. In an interview on, Tormé talked about the AuthorsSavingThrow he would use to repair his series, resurrect his dead characters and remove the plots that developed after his departure. This fanfic is Tormé's idea expanded into a 46 page script.

Earth 214

  • Recommended by Transformer 214
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: A full Season Six and Season 7. This group of stories reunites Rembrandt with the Professor after the latter was left behind in "Post Traumatic Slide" along with that alternate Earth's Quinn and Wade. Together they pick up Maggie, Mallory, and Diana and seek to separate Mallory again while continuing on to new adventures. The series stays true to the original characterizations while introducing new dynamics with the new Wade and Quinn. Thought out and self-consistent this series is a great read for fans of the first two seasons of the show.

Tough to categorize.
