Fringe Fanfiction

I didn't start reading fanfiction until earlier this year. There's so much of it out there, I only read it for a few shows, Fringe being one of them. Also to further pare it down I usually only read the M rated ones. I figured if I'm going to spend time reading them, I might as well go for the gold.

I almost felt guilty when I started reading them. It felt as if I was crossing a line and spying on pieces of the characters' personal lives that I had no right to know about. But alas, just as it is almost impossible to not look at a car accident when you go by, even though you know you could see something that might be more than you wanted to, that's how I was with fanfic. I read on, got over my well maybe I should just leave the juicy parts to my imagination thoughts and I'm glad I did. It's been fun reading about the characters in different scenarios that we haven't seen on TV.

My favorite Fringe fanfic would have to be Sum Over Histories by MVariorum. It starts around the time that Olivia comes back from the Other Side. The author writes the characters in a way that seems true to how they would actually interact with one another. This fic is well-written and has the right blend of sarcasm from Peter, aloofness from Olivia and craziness from Walter. I look forward to every new chapter.

Added 9/19/11:
While my favorite Fringe fanfic is Sum Over Histories as mentioned above there are several others that I would recommend. They all can be found on FanFiction.net but I will provide links directly to the stories as well. These are in no particular order.  I will continue to add to the list as I find more.
