Winter-Rae

Sprinklemist

  • Recommended by Troper 4
  • An excellent writer of competition fics with original contestants, starting with Total Drama: Boney Island. The character development not present in TDI is heavily featured, with very memorable characters, events, and couples. However, they do consistently get Darker and Edgier, and is especially apparent in Total Drama Tropics. There also is the Noah/Lindsay one-shot "Blonde Date", which has what this troper and author thinks is the funniest last line ever.
    • Sprinklemist's fanfics were deleted in late 2013, at the author's request, from the wiki they originally appeared on, although most are still available on the Internet Archive.

VampGrl1234

  • Recommended by Tropers/Ajustice
  • She has treated us to some sweet Gwen and Trent stories.

SakuraBlossomStorm

  • Recommended by TropicalSnow
  • A fantastic Gidgette writer who has also written several other pairings.

FountainPenguin

  • Recommended by N8han11
  • Pairings: Courtney/Feral!Ezekiel, Mike/Zoey, Tyler/Sierra (it doesn't last), Tyler/Lindsay, Courtney/Duncan, Leonard/Tammy
  • This guy writes well-written one-shots about minor characters who don't get much attention in the fandom, such as Leonard, Staci, (both human and feral) Ezekiel and Beardo. They also happen to be part of a big ongoing story, with minor details and references to each short beforehand scattered throughout.
    • Seconded. She (yes, she) has some of the most in-depth and well-crafted fanfics in the fandom, though as of writing she's currently on hiatus from writing TD fanfics to work on other fandoms. Her main focus is canon-compliant works, but doesn't allow it to limit her ideas or her worldbuilding. She has a dA and TD-centric blog if you want to see the full extent. Though, warning: a lot of her stories deal with darker subject matter than the show, which includes child abuse, unhealthy relationships, and rape for one story, though only discussed. Expect Tear Jerkers, mainly for stories like "Six Shades of Gray." (especially if you're a fan of Mike or any of his alters, and extra so if you're a fan of Zoke.)

    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.

  • Synopsis: Twenty-two different contestants arrive at the island to find out that they will be living in a rundown summer camp for eight weeks and compete with each other for a grand prize of one hundred thousand dollars.

Later, the host announces that their first challenge, jumping off a cliff into shark-infested water, will soon begin.

However, a winner of this iteration of Total drama island features great character interactions due to a shuffled cast, well developed plots, plenty of hilarious moments, and cutthroat drama.
