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

  • Synopsis: josh keeps a totally manly diary, everyone learns some things, and everyone pays a price. a story about the comedic undertones of some distinctly not funny things.
  • Pairing: Josh/Sam
  • Comments: The best Until Dawn fic this troper has ever read. The mentioned pairing takes a backseat to Josh rebuilding his friendships with everyone in the group with lots of humor, poignant moments, and yes, the occasional Tear Jerker. Highly recommended for anyone who likes Josh and/or wants some hilarious fic. ~ LongHairDontCare

  • Synopsis: Sam and Mike go off to hunt monsters after the events of the game.
  • Pairing: Sam/Mike
  • Comments: This isn't really a shipping fic, rather, it focuses on the friendship between Sam and Mike. It's probably my favorite Until Dawn fanfic, and it's got a the perfect mix of humor and deeply serious moments, and everyone is perfectly in character when they appear. — [=Clover Rose 16]
  • Tags: Fairly graphic injury mentions.

Stories that take place in a different history than the canon show, involve going into another part of The Multiverse, etc.

Shipping Fics
Stories focused on the romantic relationships between the cast.

  • Synopsis: Mike and Sam have a moment alone during their horror night that can take their relationship somewhere unexpected. Includes unhealthy and pointless amounts of fluff and angst.
  • Pairing: Mike/Sam
  • Comments: A mostly post-game fic revolving around everyone, but especially Mike and Sam, trying to heal from the trauma of that night in Blackwood. There's angst, but cuteness, and it's ultimately an uplifting story. It's also a "Josh lives" fic that treats him fairly, despite the shipping rivalry, so if you're a fan of him there'll be something for you too.

Crossover Fics

  • Synopsis: It's been a year since Hannah and Beth had disappeared, and on the anniversary of their disappearance, their friends return to the mountain where they had vanished. Little do they realize the danger they face, not only from the beings that live on the mountain, but also from the two deadliest species in the galaxy.

Dark Fics
Stories focused on making the series darker, and/or exploring the darker aspects of the series. Not safe for small children.
