    The fanfic that is absolutely at the top of my list right now is called, "Brothers in Arms" (seriously, it’s one of the best written fanfics I’ve ever read). I recommended it to Nathan over in another thread, and I highly recommend that you guys read it too.

    Its' a triumvirate/friendship fic centered on Spock, McCoy, and Jim, and everyone is in character. (I wouldn't read it otherwise) and its' got all the ingredients I look for in a good story; angst, drama, action, great plot, resolution, hurt/comfort (but not fluffy or sappy.) and some intense scenes.

    Seriously, I love this story, and its' completed, so you don't have to wait on chapters to be posted. (Yay! That was a relief for me.)

    Supermax was great but it stopped posting new stuff quite a few years ago...

    The Border Dogs were actually the creation of The Lone Red Shirt-check out his stuff. Amazing. Could be the next TV series if anyone took it seriously enough.

    Bry_Sinclair's fanfiction, Darkest Before Dawn, is a great bit of writing. It's his take on an eighth season of Deep Space Nine, where several original characters meet up with the cast that remains after the end of What You Leave Behind.

    Not to dampen your enthusiasm but this thread is for recommendation of fan fic that's not posted in this forum but on other sites.

    Has that changed over time?

    I ask because the opening thread by Naraht from back in 2005 says: People have said that it's very difficult, with so many stories having been posted in the Fanfic Forum, to know which ones are worth the time to read. This thread will hopefully provide a way for readers to recommend good stories that they have read here.

    That would seem to suggest stories posted to our own Fanfic Forum are eligible for mention in this thread. :)

    The vast majority of mentions are from other sites, though. So, yeah, I think it has changed in practice. The TrekBBS stories that were posted over the course of this thread were older ones which were hard to find at the time. That was when this forum was still exempt from pruning. They're now dead links for the most part. In any case, recommending a story that's new and still on the front page of the forum seems a little superfluous. So perhaps limit it to stories that are complete and not on the front page anymore? (A link to another site would be good, though, if it exists because in here, everything will vanish at one point).

    I hope I didn't make Dingo feel bad. :)

    ETA: Also, whoa. This thread is slightly older than my tenure on this board.

    ok-great stories on another site. I suggest SL WATSON, THE LONE REDSHIRT, GIBRALTAR, Lil Black Dog-and me. Mistral. Cause I have no shame.

    Someone may have posted this before in the last 11 years, but I enjoyed the Unity series by SFDebris, it is a Star Wars/Trek Crossover that happens around season 5 of Voyager, and during or shortly before ROTJ for Star Wars IIRC
