As I was asked now several times for "good" Fanfics for Grimm I think it's time we get a thread about it started. NOTE FOR FANFIC-WRITERS: This thread is NOT about advertising your own works! For that we have the fanfic/-art-thread. This is for spreading the word about fanfics you like/love to read.
Okay, I think I will start with some of my favs:
The Extraordinary Footnotes of Grimm Burkhardt by Selim
It's Slash, I know. It was one of the first fanfics I read about Grimm and seriously one of the ones which still have an effect on my own fics. The fic isn't going too far, in fact, I would put it more into the "Pre-Slash" folder as it's mostly up to the reader how far he/she sees this relationship between Nick and Monroe is going. And I think, Selim hit the humour of the show perfectly! Set in season 1 there's the mistake we all did about thinking to become a Grimm would mean another Grimm has to die, that's true.
Reversing the Grimm-Guide by Witchy Witch 2.0
Nick/Monroe/Rosalee Friendship, slide Monrosalee. This one is soo good (in my eyes), the first time I read it I bursted into tears because I felt with Monroe and how he's exploring the Grimm and this is also changing his view on Nick. I really love how Monroe and Rosalee come together to avoid Nick slipping into complete Grimm. The only remark I, as Nick-fan, have is that Nick, when he's there, is very, and I mean VERY, reckless and innocent. As much as I compare the friendship Nick/Monroe with McShep, Nick is an intelligent guy himself.
The Grimm-Grimmoire by Little Bounce
Seriously, I better should post her complete Grimm-work because I ADORE Little Bounce's style and humour, the lightheartness she's bringing into her stories. I decided to advertise this one because ... this thing is so damned silly and crazy, you cannot stop laughing. The Grimmoire-storys are all finished oneshots, but, truly, for some of them it would be better to know one or two other fanfics of Little Bounce as she's writing her own universe with her own characters interacting with the known Grimm-crew. But IF you really want to read really good fics, there's no way to avoid Little Bounce!
In his Eyes by DreamsofSpike
Could be misread as slash - or as gen, depends on, but I love this little Oneshot to pieces.
Definetely a Beer-Conversation by Mystikwriter
And with this the secret of the title of one of my fics is solved . Seriously, I love those conversations between Nick and Monroe. Write something about them is the best way to end up in my favs. And this conversation was ... for me only heartbreaking.
Nick's stuck in a well by Selim
Definetely Slash - but great humour! And, seriously, you can read this one as mostly friendship - just let the last chapter alone.
The Matter of Opinion by DesertOrchid7485 aka m,m&m317
I'm definetely not slashing Nick with Renard but this ficlet is cute and I truly love it
