Proof that the remaining 10% is worth threatening Mr. Scruffy for here.

These are recommendations made by Tropers for The Order of the Stick fanfics, all of which have to be signed to stay on the page. Feel free to add a fanfic of your own to the list, but remember to use the template found here.

Note that Crack Pairings seems to be very popular in this fandom, and since some of them turn out to actually be good, be prepared for some really weird pairings.


You can also add to the current recommendations if you want. Refrain from posting Conversation in the Main Page though; that goes in the discussion page.

In the Arms of Morpheus by Water-Smurf

  • Recommended by Zen_Heart
  • Status: Complete
  • Pairing: Vaarsuvius/Redcloak
  • Synopsis: It's an Alternate Universe Crack Pairing story where Vaarsuvius, instead of saving O-Chul, gets captured as well and gets in a complicated relationship with Redcloak. It's also the start of a long and complicated series.
  • Comments: While it could use a little cleaning up (a bit of which comes from's apparent removal of the page breaks the author uses), it's a surprisingly good story and has gotten notoriety in the fandom. Vaarsuvius and Redcloak stay refreshingly in character during the whole story, making it feel like it could have been canon.
    • Heartily seconded by The Tall One
    • Thirded by Sereg: While it gets very dark, the story is a well written epic which keeps you emotionally invested in the characters and eager to learn what is going to happen next.

  • Comments: It's by Water-smurf, need I say more? Well written, and in-character.

Loathing and Indifference by Hekateras

  • Recommended by Tjatter
  • Status: Complete
  • Pairing: Belkar/Vaarsuvius (Yes, again)
  • Synopsis: One-shot. Description from "At long last, the party is back together, but Belkar can't help but feel that something is missing."
  • Comments: Very well-written, humorous and stays in character throughout the whole fic. The ending will definitely force a smile.
