Let’s Dance is a fanfiction set in the Final Fantasy universe. Gladiolus finds himself in a room with Avery, watching her dance. Their conversation turns into fighting practice, which leads to confessions of feelings. vivalamaryyy introduces the characters and setting in a way that is appealing to everyone, even those of us who aren’t familiar with the Final Fantasy universe.

Target Practice is a Glee fan fiction with a unique twist – it takes place in a post-apocalyptic world. This short story follows Kurt, Adam, Sebastian and Elliot as they get themselves familiar with their weapons to use for the inevitable zombie attacks. Though the story is a sequel to stories previously written by this author, the simplicity of the subject matter makes it a great stand-alone story as well.
