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.

  • Summary: A supply trip finds some... unexpected things in an abandoned restaurant. Interests they wouldn't expect. Photos that shouldn't exist. There's more here than meets the eye.
  • Comments: A very interesting fic for a very interesting concept. Everyone is written wonderfully and in-character as well! One of the few fics I've seen that actively includes Max, as well. A good read if you'd like to be introduced to some certain A Us.

and my nightmares will have nightmares (every night), by craftingdead

  • Summary: Nick didn’t have nightmares. / He wasn’t sure if that thing about Red really even counted—it was too fucked up to be a nightmare. Nightmares are what kids had after watching scary movies, not traumatizing dreams over a cannibal killing your best friend and attempting to murder you as well. That probably counted as a night terror, if he was being honest, from the way he reacted when he woke up. / But, other than that, Nick… never really “had” nightmares. Never woke up screaming, crying, scared out of his wits (again, not counting that Red thing). He just never had them.
  • Comments: A pre-canon fanfiction revolving around Nick (and a popular headcanon of Shelby being his twin sister, so Shelby, too). Shot in three primary shots of him growing up from sixth grade to about freshman year. Despite it covering some sensitive topics, it's a well-thought out fic and written beautifully!

How well does it match the trope?
