Drabbles Of Writing

  • Recommended by: HarryP22h
  • Drabbles of Writing has written multiple AU fics for the Owl House Fandom, most notable of which is the Four Years AU, where it takes Luz much longer than expected to find a way back to the Human World, while she and the rest of the cast grow up together in the Boiling Isles. A Slice of Life AU with angst and humour galore, it has received consistent updates and ratings. The other AU fics are also fun to read.

  • Recommended by KanadianWriter
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: Mornings in the Owl House had never been a quiet affair. Between King, Hooty, and of course, the Owl Lady herself, moments of peace tended to find themselves quickly shattered by either magic, mischief, or… whatever it is that Hooty does. And that was before Luz Noceda had quite literally fallen into Eda’s life. (OR Luz has a slip of the tongue, Eda has a revelation.)

  • Tags: Adventure, Multiple Universes, Dimension Travel, Switching places with yourself from another universe, Friendship, Family Feels, Some Humor, Post-Season 1, Original Character(s), Magic, New glyphs

Luz Noceda, The Fighter by Jss2141

  • Recommended by Spectacular Troper
  • Status: Ongoing
  • Synopsis: What if Luz was put in a combat sport at a younger age in hopes of making friends by her mother? Owl House AU inspired by Fighting Falls (Gravity Falls AU) I do not own these characters. Warning: Swearing

  • Recommended by Troper
  • Status: Ongoing
  • Synopsis: Owl House AU: Luz was only a baby when she was rescued by Eda. Raised under her, Luz Clawthorne grew to be quite the trouble-maker. Will contain some swearing.
  • Also on AO3

Lunar Eclipse AU by Evilsnotbag

  • Recommended by KanadianWriter
  • Status: Ongoing
  • Synopsis: Stories that can be stand-alone, but read better as a series. In this AU, Lilith is a teacher at Hexside as well as the leader of the Emperor's Coven.
  • Tags: Swearing, many periods, bleeding, illness, brief nudity, angst, violence, bullying, dysfunctional family relations

The Good Witch by coffee666

  • Recommended by TheArcher
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: Luz Noceda was a normal high school freshman by day, but by night, she was the creator of the webcomic "The Good Witch Azura" Luz's comic was fairly popular, but it wasn't until she saw her rival, Amity Blight, wearing a fan made Azura t-shirt that Luz realized just how special her comic was.

The Sky Pirate's Magical Odyssey by Fox On Pie

  • Recommended by RutherfordDingo
  • Status: Ongoing
  • Synopsis: Luz Noceda was a young inventor who always had her head in the clouds, even for a third-rate sky pirate. Nothing she did in her world could get people to appreciate her inventions, but maybe she'd be able to get some recognition in a world that, oddly enough, was the exact opposite of her own. Owl House with sort-of steampunk!Luz.
  • Pairings: Luz/Amity, Emira/Viney
  • Comments: The story takes the original show and adds an element of Magic Versus Science to it by having Luz be a Gadgeteer Genius from a steampunk world, and it works surprisingly well. Luz's original problems still exist here, and the addition of her being a clumsy, one-armed inventor further add to the appeal of her character and the way she interacts with the setting.
  • Also on AO3.

Ghost Of You by RainbowJeff

  • Recommended by: RacattackForce
  • Status: Ongoing
  • Pairings: Amity/Luz
  • Synopsis: Luz found the Boiling Isles almost two years later. Amity is an anomaly, too powerful for her own good. Mistakes happen.
  • Comments: An odd, slightly macabre story that immediately begins with an older teenage Amity, who in this story has strong and difficult-to-control power, arguing with a likewise older Luz. Who Amity had killed minutes prior and must now deal with being haunted by until the duo can come to terms with the incident. More fluff that you'd expect ensues.

Emperor Belos: Great Dictator, Average Father by Fox On Pie

  • Recommended by RutherfordDingo
  • Status: Ongoing
  • Synopsis: Many people thought that a marriage between a human nurse and the almighty dictator of a magical world was doomed to fail. Well, Camilia Noceda and Emperor Belos got married despite the naysayers, and after eighteen years, they are still divorced. At least their daughter always has fun with them, whether as a regular face in the crowd or as the princess of the Boiling Isles.
  • Comments: The story takes the popular Fandom-Specific Plot of Emperor Belos being Luz's father and plays it completely for laughs, It's a borderline Crack Fic or Parody Fic, but it works so well because of the witty dialogue and the ridiculous situations the author puts the characters through.
  • Also on fanfiction.net.

Immortal Devotion by Rohad, Tripower

  • Recommended by SandwitchZebra
  • Status: Complete
  • Pairings: Amity/Luz, Boscha/Willow
  • Synopsis: The god of light, joy, and the summer sun, is an unusual choice for a warrior to pick for their patron god, and it isn't just other mortals who are curious about her reasoning.
  • Comments: Heavily inspired by Norse mythology, as many of the traditional characters are either the warriors of Boneshaven or the gods of legend, with Luz taking the role of Baldur (Baldur being her name given by mortals) and Amity being the jarl of Boneshaven, who dedicated her battles to Baldur before she got to know the god personally. Despite the fact that some characters are gods, they still have surprising depth, and even the non-god characters play a major part in the emotional beats of the story. Certain characters also have personality and familial overhauls. Trust is a heavy theme of the story. It is almost completely done, with a single chapter to go. All in all, come for the concept, stay for the feels and atmosphere.

Disney's The Owl House

  • Recommended by Shoobedobah
  • Satus: Ongoing
  • Synopsis: Here's something I thought of involving what if Owl House debuted as a Disney film back in the 1990s? Here I describe how I think the movie's plot would've been like and the legacy that would follow.
  • Comments: Quite honestly I didn't know where to put this fic at first because it really didn't fit into most categories, but I figured Alternate Universe fit it best, even though it's an AU fic in a much more meta sense. I like the idea of Owl House being a full on traditional animated 90's Disney film, and I hope it causes more stuff like this to show up eventually. Love to see Amphibia get this treatment!

  • Status: Complete
  • Pairings: Amity/Luz
  • Synopsis: When Luz receives a confession from Amity, she suspects that Amity must have been influenced by a Love Potion - Because people do not like Luz Noceda like this
  • Tags: Romance, Angst, Hurt/Comfort, Love Confessions, Panic, Emotional Hurt/Comfort, Emotional Baggage, Fluff, Lumity, Kiss Consent, First Kiss, Character Study, Luz Noceda Needs a Hug, Luz is NOT oblivious?, soft girls
  • Comments: Gloriously averts the popular "Luz is oblivious" trope in an in-character, and plausible way. The writing is sharp, the pacing is good, and the emotional range is all over the place (In a good way).

  • Comments: A crossover fanfic that portrays every character in an accurate, fun, and most importantly well-written way, Hell's Boiling Point wonderfully combines these two worlds and creates an adventure that feels it's from the very best of the Owlhouse, with a slowly unveiling mystery, snappy dialogue, and kick-butt action Hellboy is known for.
