The Navigator's Tale by Sailor Heva
- Recommended by: raptyr
- Status: Complete
- Synopsis: A chronicle that contains the strange tale of a navigator who sailed around the world with Magellan. His name was Mendoza and this is his story.
- Notes: Has a sequel, The Navigator's Tale: The New World (dead).
- Comments: Possibly the best Mysterious Cities of Gold fic out there, and one of the best stories that I've ever read. With such a small reference pool (less than 25 fics of FF.net), you'd think that this would be a case of Normal Fish in a Tiny Pond, but that is definitely not the case. The characters are well written, the story engaging, and uniquely, it focuses primarily on Mendoza's early life and voyage with Magellan. The author has done their research, and sprinkled the whole thing with plenty of historical facts. Definitely worth a read!
