  • Recommended by Gamma Wolf
  • This is an older fan fiction archive with mostly DeadFics.

    General Fics 

Stories focused on the family and the friendly relationships of the cast. Plot-focused stories or light day-in-the-life stories. Pretty much anything that isn't focused on romance.

No Daughter of Mine by Blue Dragon

  • Recommended by Helly
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: Mat has followed Tuon to rule in Seanchan, but now his daughter can channel, and he will do anything to keep her from being collared. Fortunately he's been planning for this disaster for years...
  • Comments: one-shot, but it lets you wishing it was longer. A great story, everyone is in character and it feels like it could be part of RJ's planned-but-never written Seanchan-centered sequel.

Resurrection byBanares

  • Recommended by Mimus 15
  • Status: Dead
  • Synopsis: "The Aiel, the Aes Sedai, the Asha'man. Remnants of their former people, hunted by all after Tarmon Gai'don. This is the story of how they arose from the ashes and defeated the Seanchan. This is the story of their Resurrection."
  • Comments: Interesting read. It's based off of Aviendha's visions of the future of the Aiel (and the rest of the world). I found it enjoyable.

Wheel in the Sky byBastille Kain

  • Recommended by Gamma Wolf
  • Status: Dead
  • Synopsis: Bunch of characters from a couple of shows get chucked into the Wheel of Time world. Including Buffy characters and Highlander ones. And some others show characters
  • Comments:
    • Baughn: Horrible fanboyism ahoy. The crossover characters pretty much steal the show.

Youngest Channeler by Viggen

  • Recommended by Kalvan
  • Status: Active, but updated slowly.
  • Synopsis: Saidar changes those who channel it, especially the very young. Hidden among girls wearing white, the youngest channeler begins her trip through the white marble halls toward attainment of the shawl, but her enemies are legion.
  • Comments: The main character is autistic, which results in some incredible interactions with the rest of the cast. Already at ca.140,000 words long.

A Different Wheel by st122

  • Recommended by Kalvan
  • Status: Dead; last updated June 2013
  • Synopsis: A few, not so few anymore, chapters of 'what if Tigraine still lived'. This fic shows how one character still being alive can radically alter events. A must read.
  • Comments: a very interesting Mirror of the Wheel invloving Rand and Galad.

Ta'veren by Geralt

  • Recommended by Kalvan, Metal King 1417, RagnarTheSemiGreen
  • Status: Dead (see Author's Profile Page)
  • Synopsis: When Rand was 13, Lews started manifesting in the boy's dreams, passing on to him the knowledge of how to control his Ta'veren ability. Seven years later, Moiraine will arrive to find Two Rivers a very different place from what it is suppose to be.
  • Comments: Remember the changes that happened to the Two Rivers offscreen in The Fires of Heaven? Now, they're happening before the beginning of the first book...

    Crossover Fics 

From Over the Sea by Nimbus Llewelyn

  • Recommended by The Enmity Of Ages 1994
  • Crossover: Doctor Who
  • Status: Complete. The author has vaguely alluded to a sequel.

    • Part 2: The world stands poised as Harry and Ginny return from their journey. Yet, things are different despite all that he thought he knew. How will he come to terms with who he is as his world is turned upside down?
