Proof that the remaining 10% is worth getting hunted by the Stalker for here:

These are recommendations made by tropers for Warframe Fan Fics, all of which have been signed. After a few samples, you will be able to judge whether you might be interested in the 'fic, based on who recommended it. No-name recommendations will be zapped. Nobody would back up the rec. Discussion of the recommendation is welcome on the discussion page. As such discussion is important, do remember to add the discussion page to the watchlist, if need be. Refrain from posting Conversation in the Main Page though.

Do warn when a fanfic may head into non-canon territory. Some people just don't like it, and as we all know, Shipping is Serious Business.

Add new examples at the bottom of the section, please.

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.

Orchestra by TheManWithAPlan

  • Recc'd by: Gentlemens Dame 883, Desdendelle
  • Status: Dead
  • Synopsis: From the mind that gave us Archangel Ascendant comes 16 artful one-shots on each of the Tenno, superhuman warriors all, each unique in their own way, yet together much more than the sum of their parts.
  • Status: Apparently dead; the Spacebattles thread was locked and the author was banned for 4 months after the mods discovered one of the chapters (the Hydroid one) was blatantly plagiarised from someone else's work (a prose post on Kill Six Billion Demons). The posting on seems to have been removed as well, presumably for the same reasons.

The Morning Routine by Mewing_Raven

  • Recommended by: TypeProton
  • Status: Complete
  • A very short skit about a Tenno preparing for a usual day's work. No combat, but with some nice nod to various game mechanics.

Scavengers by Katsuhiro.

  • Recommended by: DoctorFluffy.
  • Status: Completed. Warning: SPOILERS for The Second Dream and War Within. You have been warned.
  • Synopsis: Nominal Hero Corpus scavengers Kelpo Marr and Telin Voss find a lost Orokin wreck under the Venusian ice with a mysterious child sitting inside. What they expect to be a massive payday quickly spirals Off the Rails, as the scavengers and their prize find themselves hunted by Corpus higher-ups, their hired bounty hunters, all in the backdrop of a Solaris United uprising, and a sinister conspiracy in the background...
    • Without a doubt the best Warframe fanfic I have ever read. It's so excellent it's almost criminal that so few people have read it. The worldbuilding is superlative, with the writer displaying a keen understanding of the game's lore. The characters are fleshed out and manage to stand out despite the switching perspectives, and you'll find yourself reading the story just to see how far the Off the Rails chaos of the story can escalate. ~DoctorFluffy

Hail to the Jewels in the Lotus by Anendda_Rysden

  • Recommended by: reppuzan
  • Status: Ongoing. Warning: Spoilers for The Second Dream and The War Within.
  • Synopsis: The Tenno were awake, they who had journeyed beyond the boundaries of reality and returned from the place the Orokin called Hell. Who can say how many they’ve saved from a life of darkness, and how many they’ve cast into the abyss. Every story is a piece of the puzzle, surah... and the universe is full of stories.
  • A collection of short stories examining the Tenno and the Origin System through the eyes of the Grineer, Corpus, and the Tenno themselves. It's able to simultaneously capture the Mook Horror Show left in the wake of any Tenno and beautifully illustrate the Tennos' humanity and altruism at the same time.

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

The Phage Affiction by Cold Haze

  • Recommended by: TypeProton
  • Status: Complete
  • Short NSFW Ember x Saryn trollfic from the realm of Reddit. Read for amusement only.

Crossover Fics
Fanfiction that combines elements, characters, etc. from two or more different franchises.

Wail Of The Banshee by Blackhole1

  • Recommended by: Masked And Dangerous
  • Crossover with: Worm
  • Status: Dead
  • Synopsis: Yes, gentlemen, another Worm Crossover featuring Taylor with a new set of superpowers. This time, it's Worm crossed with the runny/gunny wahey that is Warframe. All characters and objects belong to their respective owners. All rights reserved. The premise? What if our favorite bullied teen found herself with a Banshee class Warframe?

Research Reports by Xenotechie

  • Recommended by: hidaney
  • Crossover with: Ciaphas Cain
  • Status: Dead
  • Synopsis: A fusion crossover, looks putting Ciaphas Cain's general personality in a Corpus researcher, specializing in Warframes, with Jurgen also getting a counterpart. Shows good in-universe explanations for how the warframes work. Also, Tenno getting taken out with Provas, and doing otherwise crazy things, like standing in an Orokin Tower laser for several hours.

The Wolf and the Lamb by Vinurfiy

  • Recommended by: Troper/bluewarbler
  • Crossover with: Marvel Cinematic Universe
  • Status: Ongoing
  • Synopsis: An extremely confusing (so far) crossover between the Marvel Cinematic Universe and Warframe, though the author has promised that all shall be made clear in time. It seems to take place at the beginning of the first Avengers movie, but elements of later movies have been included. Still an interesting read despite how enigmatic it is.

Doki Doki Operator Club by Best Bug Maddie

  • Recommended by: KenRenzo
  • Crossover with: Doki Doki Literature Club!
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: The Literature Club, after the end of DDLC, lands in Warframe. From there, they work together to find an escape, and sort out their differences. Has spoilers for the entire main questline up to The New War.
  • Pairing(s): Natsuki/Yuri, Monika/Sayori, and eventually Natsuki/Yuri/Monika/Sayori as a polyamorous quadruplet.
  • Comments: This fanfic is a beast, with 240,000 words and 42 chapters. Don't let the weird crossover deter you, though; this is one of the best I've read, with format screws and Base 64 secrets as a nod to Doki Doki. There's a lot of worldbuilding of Warframe's universe as well, playing a bit loose with the lore. Definitely worth your time.

Warfriends by Taylor Osborn.
  • Recommended by: Darth Walrus
  • A series of comical and somewhat tangentially warframe-related videos. Warfriends involves heavy use of Meta humor that requires knowledge of the game to actually get the joke.......which is why it's hilarious.
