None yet.

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.

"Tin Man Fairytales" by animegus farmus. While not an actual series, the collection consists of Sleeping Beauty, Cinderella, Goldilocks, Snow White, The Princess and the Pea, Thumbelina, Little Red Riding Hood, Fountain of Youth, Pied Piper, Rapunzel, Azel and Glitchel, Beauty and the Beast, and Jorinda and Joringel. The similarity between the actual fairy tale and the Tin Man story is sometimes fairly vague, but each one is very entertaining.

  • Pairing: While not every story features a pairing (thus why it isn't in the shipping folder), the most common one in some of the stories is DG/Cain.

  • Synopsis: Described by the author as "where fairytales and Tin Man collided in my brain," each story stands on its own and steals aspects from classic fairy tales and incorporates them into the Tin Man universe. Without being absolutely bound by the exact traditions of the fairy tale.
  • Comments:The best comparison is how the Tin Man series itself is similar to the "Wizard of Oz" story without having to follow it exactly. While "Azel and Glitchel" is fairly close in many aspects to the normal "Hansel and Gretchel" story, others like "Pied Piper" are almost unrecognizable. That doesn't stop them all from being well-written or extremely fun.

Stories focused on the romantic relationships between the cast.

  • Pairing: Glitch/Cain
  • Advertisement:
  • Synopsis: Just after the eclipse, those who witnessed it from the Dark Tower made a pact to look out for each other. And, six weeks later, subtle signs of contention arise. The queen is pressuring Ambrose to reform to his previous self, capitulate to a rebrainment he's not entirely sure he wants, and reclaim his court duties. But the former Advisor Ambrose has other ideas for himself, and he's more than willing to test the tethers of his freedom. Glitch, along with Cain, DG, Raw, and a motley crew of bygone friends and new companions, begin a journey to uncover scattered pieces of an artifact that a fearful Ambrose secretly hid annuals before. Entering adventures and unexpected delights, the road into the past brings a chance to determine their present and their future.

Brother Raw Explains It All For You by Chibi-Kaz

  • Recommended by Allronix
  • Status: Complete
  • Pairing: Cain/DG (implied)
  • Synopsis: Raw outlines a few rules for his fellow Viewers about the hazards of dealing with humans.
  • Comments: Raw is sorely neglected in the fandom, so Chibi-Kaz's story is a rare treat. Its tongue-in-cheek treatment of Dirty Mind-Reading and the hazards of being a magical-species empath stuck with humans is definitely worth a chuckle.

Tin Horses and Paper Planes. by The Watched Pot

  • Recommended by TVC 15
  • Status: Complete
  • Pairing: Glitch/Cain
  • Synopsis: A year after the eclipse, Cain returns to the Winter palace, but things are not quite the way he expects them to be...
  • Comments: This is a beautifully written work in progress, which explores Cain's acceptance of himself, and his growing relationship with Glitch. It is very refreshing to read a fic where there are still prejudices to be overcome - homophobic attitudes in an unenlightened world. It deals with male/male relationship and friendship, but contains nothing explicit. The characterisation and attention to detail is a joy to read.
