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.

Most are based either on fan suggestions or Heart-to-Hearts with Shulk, Reyn, and Fiora being anywhere from five to fifteen, and Dunban being seventeen to twenty-seven in age. All are G Rated, yes even one Dickson and Mumkhar show up in.

Satorl Guardian, Guardian of Satorl, by The Anomalocaris

  • Recommended by: Robotortoise
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: The untold story of the legendary guardian of Satorl Marsh. Think he was just a random filler boss with no backstory or plot significance? Think again!
  • Comments: An off-beat, hilarious crack fic that explains how exactly this bird boss came to be. Integrates into the main plot. One of the funniest and most interesting Xenoblade fics I've ever read.

ALVIS-SystemMemory-ValakMtn, by LuckyBlackCat
