Recommended Fanfics

 HA! – A CRITICAL ANALYSIS HAS MOVED TO A NEW URL!

These are a list of Hey Arnold! fan fictions that I find are written superbly, staying within character.  A lot of the fanfictions written out there are very excellent (I practically love them all), so if I could, I would list them all down here.  The list below is only a small taste of what I would recommend reading.  You can check out some of the active fanfiction communities in the “Links” page.  Happy reading!

1. “A BitterSweet Catastrophe” by Pointy Objects

Story set where Arnold and Helga are in High School.  Will a life-threatening matter bring them together?  Well written, subtle, and sweet.

2. “The Most Beautiful Gift” by DarthRoden aka Carl

3. “Arnold’s Couch Confessions” by DarthRoden aka Carl

4. “The Man of My Dreams” by Pyrus Japonica

5. “Gerald Speaks” by Pyrus Japonica

6. “An Arnold Visits Arnie Essay” by Anomynous

An excellent analysis on the episode “Arnold visits Arnie” by… y’know… that famous poet, Anomynous.  Very well-written and thourough.  This guy knows what he’s talking about.

7. “The Booth” by Teh-Drabbler

8. “Expectations” by K.S.P.I.C.E.R.

9. “The Argument” by Pyrex Shards

Pyrex Shards digs a little deeper into the Pataki family, as Olga overhears her parents argue something that will change the course of Helga’s life forever.  Intense!  (Some foul language in here, so it’s not for everyone.)

10. “And There He Goes” by WizKid94

11. “Awkward” by Pointy Objects

12. “100 Years” by Franny-Pazz182

13. “White Roses aka The First Time” by hannah-kraft

14. “Move It, Football Head! – A Helga/Arnold Manifesto” by poisonivory

I always liked Arnold and Helga’s relationship, but I could never explain exactly why.  In her super-thorough and in-depth post, poisonivory gives one of the best insights into their relationship and gives you further reason why you should love them.  A must-read for all AxH fans, even if you are not a super-fan.

  1. I still say that the two best ‘epics’ of the HA! fandom are:

    Missing Pieces, by Poisonivory – http://www.fanfiction.net/s/634848/1/Missing_Pieces

    Hot Air, by Pyrus Japonica – http://www.fanfiction.net/s/828017/1/Hot_Air

  2. I will give them a read (ooo, long and epic stories :D). Thanks for the recommendations!

  3. Ah fooey,
    Im number 13! 😦
    Hehe, I guess I should be glad that i’m on the list though. Thank you!
    And thanks for putting Beneath The Mask as your Fanfic of the week! 🙂

    • Hehe, the fanfics are only listed in the order that I discover them. They are all equally good! And I’m glad to put you on the list, because your fanfics are great!

  4. Thanks so much for telling me about this! =D I feel all honored to be put on this list. XD

  5. What a great compilation. Some of my favorites are on here. This is my new favorite site…

  6. Hey cool! I’m on this list. Thanks for adding The Argument. I also see some fics here that I have not personally read. I’ll probably end up reading them sometime.

  7. Thanks for the links! What a great site you have going here, keep up the good work! I’m enjoying looking through it all. I’ll have to check out some of these other fics.

    @Squirreltamer Thx, I love Missing Pieces too, how can anyone not? 🙂

  8. I feel bad that the featured fanworks of the week disappear later. Tendra, maybe you should archive them somewhere? Like, keeping a table of earlier featured works?

    • I second this! :3

    • Oh, but I do have an archive of all the previous featured fanworks. 😉 I just don’t know under what page category I should put it under: “Recommended fanvideos” or “recommended fanfics”?

      I should probably put it as a new page category by itself, but I gotta rename and reorganize the website so that the header doesn’t get all ugly. That’s gonna take some time, and I’m heading into exams right now. I’ll probably reorganize the website again when I’m done my upcoming final exams, so expect a new (but I don’t know how new) layout the week after May 20, which will include an archive of past featured fanworks. :3 Boy, you guys got me excited now lol
