A Road To El Dorado Parody by iSparrow

  • Recommended by pimpdaddy
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: What in the name of all things sexually ambiguous is this?
  • Comments: An abridged humorous parody of the movie. It's sarcastic and snarky and points out lots of plot holes, but it remains very affectionate and fans of the movie can easily enjoy it. It does frequently joke about Miguel/Tulio shipping, but it mostly pokes fun at the fandom than the pairing itself.

Stories focused on the romantic relationships between the cast.

  • Synopsis: Tulio and Chel find their spark dying, and eventually part as friends. Tulio acquires passage back to the New World to find El Dorado and Miguel aboard a schooner, but things don't go according to plan... Detailed summary inside, Slash
  • Comments: Well-constructed sequel to the original story. It doesn't demonize Chel like many shippers do, which is nice. Rather sweet overall. There is some violence. Has a follow-up story that is available as well.

if they say I'm a god (that's what I am) by Lady_Kaos

  • Recommended by Samred
  • Status: Complete
  • Pairings: Chel/Miguel/Tulio
  • Synopsis: In a sense, Tulio and Miguel are false gods. They are dishonest and deceivers. And, at some point or another, might have been called gods by those who worshiped them. But faith in them was a thousand years dead long before they ever wash up in a new world. They are but guests in this golden city trying their best to not wear out their welcome. Miguel's all for putting down roots. Tulio's all for getting home before it swallows them entirely. Altivo is more than a horse. Chel, their new priestess, is very much in over her head, but she wouldn't have it any other way.

  • Comments: What if Miguel and Tulio *were* gods? The worldbuilding in this fic, inspired by Neil Gaiman's American Gods, is excellent, and the author's passion for Greek and Mesoamerican mythology is very evident!

Confidence Artists by Fahye

  • Recommended by screennameless
  • Status: Complete
  • Pairings: Chel/Miguel/Tulio
  • Synopsis: The grey light of Spain carries their history with it, and it's gleaming through the cracks. // Two long cons, in thirteen conversations.
  • Comments: Although there's a well-crafted plot about conning a mark with the promise of Moorish gold, the fic primarily focuses on Chel's efforts to resolve the unaddressed sexual tension between Miguel and Tulio — the second "long con" of the description. The story is told beautifully from Chel's perspective, capturing her wit and stubborn determination alongside her genuine affection for both men. Also contains an excellent sex scene, assuming you're up for that.

How well does it match the trope?
