General Fics
"Stories focused on the main characters. Pretty much anything that isn't focused on romance."

Hero with the Cracked Helmet. by OneLastBird

  • Recommended by The Wild West Pyro
  • Status: Last update April 2014.
  • Synopsis: The Universe is ending... again, and Vitruvius has come up with a prophecy to save it... again. Seriously, how many times has this happened already? Anyways, Universe ending, big prophecy, yadda, yadda, this time the survival of everything might just depend on a slightly damaged 1980-Something Space Guy...
  • Comments: A funny story that casts our beloved blue spaceman as the lead, with an interesting plot and humor to boot.

Picking Up the Pieces by Kartoon12

  • Recommended by Lego Lover 58
  • Status: Dormant; last updated May 2017
  • Synopsis: Taking place on the evening of Tako Tuesday, the fanfic revolves Emmet and co. and they rebuild their world after Tako Tuesday.

  • Recommended by The Wild West Pyro
  • Status: Complete.
  • Synopsis: How does it feel to lose not just your home, but the home of your subjects and you can't let your cheery façade drop for even a moment? Set after the film about one of the places in the Lego Universe that didn't survive unscathed. Not a shipping fic, they are only friends. Hope you like it.

  • Recommended by The Wild West Pyro
  • Status: Complete

A Piece of Rebellion by Mattecat

Brick on Brick by WyldstyleLucyWhatever

  • Synopsis: A series of short drabbles with events from Lucy and Emmett's relationship. First one is set about two months after the movie. SPOILERS (maybe)! Please R&R!
