Strawberry Panic: The Gravity of Love by ninemil
- Recommended by: Rain Fletcher and Shanejayell
- Status: Dead
- Synopsis: Continuing from where episode 26 leaves off: Shizuma faces up to the mess she's left in her wake, Nagisa and Tamao struggle to rediscover their friendship and Hikari and Amane learn the hard way that Etoile isn't all hero worship. Strong adult themes.
- Comments: As mentioned, this is a continuation from the anime, though the author incorporates bits and bobs from the novel and manga canon as well to keep us on our toes. Epic, breathtaking, sweepingly romantic and yet far more grounded in reality than the escapism of the series. Nine shows us that it's not just a matter of earning your happy ending, because real life doesn't work that way, especially for those society might deem as Different. Currently on a bit of a hiatus, but the author will be getting back to it soon. (Or I will pester him, and he knows it.)
- I second the recommend. Very gripping and dramatic story. Shane. :)
Red Bows In Her Hair by Suzume CA
- Recommended by: Shanejayell
- Crossover with: Yami to Boushi to Hon no Tabibito
- Status: Complete
- Synopsis: In their continuing search for Hatsumi, Hazuki and Lilith find themselves on Astraea Hill, where Hazuki meets an unexpected confidante in Chikaru Minamoto, a young lady with very familiar red bows in her hair.
- Comments: As mentioned this is a crossover, with strong elements from Yami to Boushi to Hon no Tabibito. However the writer smoothly works those elements in without disrupting Strawberry Panic! too much, as well as providing a very enjoyable story.
- Notes: Has two sequels, Hand Me Downs (complete) and Strange Fire (dormant).
