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.

Cherry Blossoms by Jeff Morris

  • Recommended by Aldea Donder
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: Set in the OVA continuity. Jeff Morris' Cherry Blossoms is a bittersweet tale, telling of Ryoko's gradual decline and death as a result of a "dead man's switch" virus implanted in her by Kagato, and the effects it has on those around her.

Project Mom by knapper11

  • Recommended by Aldea Donder
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: Set in the OVA continuity. knapper11's Project Mom provides a realistic examination of Washu and Ryoko's estranged mother/daughter relationship. The story pays careful consideration to the psychological hurdles faced by both characters on the road to reconciliation: Washu's callousness and Ryoko's alienation, and the emotional trauma suffered by each at Kagato's hand. A thoughtful read from beginning to end that's true to the characters.

Changing Faces by mccpcorn

  • Recommended by Aldea Donder
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: Set in the OVA continuity. When one of Washu's machines goes haywire and leaves the household stranded in one another's bodies, things quickly spiral out of control. The sins of the past are dredged up, and words spoken in anger inflict their emotional carnage upon one vulnerable inhabitant of the Masaki residence, who runs away into the night — and into a coming storm. The situation becomes all the more dire when the characters realize that their minds, rejected by their new bodies, are rapidly coming unraveled. It's a race against time and the elements to undo the damage before it's too late. A story about reckoning, forgiveness, and understanding; a thoroughly-gripping psychological drama.

Mihoshi burned out when she learned the truth about the Galaxy Police; but Kiyone's passion for justice still burns bright, even if she has to act alone...
