All Updates

May 29, 2013

This is yet another resurrection of Goku Girl's Fanfiction Recommendations. Over the next few months, I'll be clearing out a huge backlog of recommendations that I've been gathering for the past several years as well as adding some newer ones. As of today, all of the story links on this site work. I would like to have at least two links per story (just in case one of them goes bad), but not all of the recommendations are like this. I encourage you to submit a new link to me if you have one as well as report broken links.

25 new recommendations have been added as well as three new fandoms (FAKE, Kyou Kara Maou, and Weiβ Kreuz) and several new favorite authors.

In this update, I highly recommend...

Length: 34 chapters, 142,393 words

Link(s): LiveJournal,, The Hex Files

Comments: The author warns about violence, gore, and torture. This is seriously a warning not to be taken lightly. It's an excellent story, but sensitive people should stay away from it.

I made up for going months between updates by adding two dozen stories. There are more on my list, but I figured I needed to have something for next time. Remember: you can always send me your own recommendations or even submit your own fanfics for review.

In this update, I highly recommend...

I Found My Heart in San Francisco by S. X. Meagher starstar

Fandom(s): Über Xena

Rating: AO

Genre(s): Drama, Humor, Romance

Warning(s): Graphic Language, Lemon

Length: 16 novels + short stories

Summary: Two female Berkeley students meet and fall in love.

Status: incomplete

Added: October 07, 2007

Link(s): Royal Academy of Bards, The Bard's Corner

Comments: There aren't words to describe how good this series is. It takes place in contemporary California and deals with many different issues people are still trying to deal with today. There will be 26 stories total, I believe, and all of them will be novel length. You can buy some of the novels in printed form. See her website for more info. The Royal Academy of Bards has all of them while The Bard's Corner doesn't.

In this update, I highly recommend...

A Thousand Beautiful Things by Lemon Bar starstar

Fandom(s): Queer as Folk (US)

Rating: M

Genre(s): Alternate Universe, Drama, Romance

Main Pairing(s): Brian/Justin

Warning(s): Graphic Violence, Nonconsensual, Psychological Issues

Length: 16 chapters, 50,000+ words

Summary: (from Midnight Whispers) Between his infuriatingly understanding therapist; 'the gang' who still insisted that he was a part of them; nurses who glared at him for being such a shit, and apparently mistreating their most sacred patient (Justin, his poor mute, helpless roommate), and Justin, not to mention the nightmares he suffered nightly -- Brian severely wondered if perhaps choosing a prison sentence might have been easier on him than the fresh hell that was Liberty Hospital.

Status: complete

Added: February 03, 2007

Link(s): LiveJournal

Comments: This story is very unique, and very humorous at times. The entire gang is at Liberty Hospital, from Lindsay the psychiatrist to Debbie the hard-assed nurse to clinically-depressed Michael who threatens to drown himself for attention. The sequel, Slowly, but Exceedingly Fine, can be found here.

This is the grand re-opening of Goku Girl's Fanfiction Recommendations. I hope to eventually have a huge archive of excellent fanfiction, but I won't be able to make it to my goal without help from visitors. You can recommend others' stories (or your own) by using this form.

In this update, I highly recommend...

The ABC Arc by Aja starstar

Fandom(s): Gravitation

Rating: AO

Genre(s): Drama, Humor, Romance

Main Pairing(s): Shuichi/Eiri, Hiro/Ayaka, Hiro/K, Hiro/OMC, Touma/Sakano, Ryuichi/Tatsuha

Warning(s): Drugs, Graphic Language, Lemon

Length: 9 stories + short stories, 500,000+ words

Summary: Shuichi and Yuki enter into a committed relationship.

Status: complete

Added: July 22, 2006

Link(s): Author's Site,, Internet Archive Wayback Machine

Comments: This is the longest Gravitation series I've ever read. The ABC Arc has over 250 chapters total, but most of them are relatively short. Aja's characterizations and her attention to detail are amazing. She'll also educate you about contemporary Japanese culture while you read.
