General Fics

Turning Darkness into Light by GorimJr.

  • Recommended by: Mad Midnight Dreams, Hedgi
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: An alternate ending to the movie. Crom wasn't the only god sleeping in Aisling's forest. (Set just before the Viking attack.)
    • Seconded. As a troper taking an Irish mythogy class, I really, really loved this- Gorim Jr has really done the research, and it pays off. A brilliant idea for an alternate ending. It's a must read.

Time Waits for No One by Saemi67

  • Recommended by: Heart Of The Moon
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: ("What if" story) When Brendan returns from his victory against Crom Cruach, he is shocked to find that two days have passed outside. During which, his absence rocked everyone in Kells and would drastically change the future of the village itself.
    • Great alternate ending to Secret of Kells. Looks a lot at Brendan's relationship with Abbot Cellach and Brother Aidan, since they think they've lost him, and then he returns!

The Abbot by LadySupergirl

  • Recommended by: Heart Of The Moon
  • Status: Dormant (last updated January 2017)
  • Synopsis: A look at the Abbot's thoughts from the prologue comic through the end of the film. Includes many Brendan and Cellach bonding scenes, especially during Brendan's childhood prior to the movie. Great if you enjoy family fluff.

Through The Eyes by clarademeanor

  • Recommended by: Oecchi
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: She has lived through many ages.
    • Essentially a character study for Aisling and how she views her own longevity. Has some crossover with Song of the Sea towards the end.

Stories focused on the romantic relationships between the cast.
