Do you love Fairy Tail? If so, you might want to expand past canon itself and start exploring what the world of fanfiction has to offer. All over the Internet, fans are penning their own adventures for Natsu, Lucy, Gray, and the rest of the cast. This curated list will help you find some great new fic to add to your reading list. 

Some good Fairy Tail fanfic focuses on pairings - exploring relationships between characters that are never realized within the canon itself, or which are only implied. Others change one aspect of canon and then follow the result - what if Natsu were raised by Acnologia instead of Igneel? What if the whole thing took place in a real world high school? Some are bite-sized stories that can be read in a few minutes, while others offer enough reading material to last months. This list will help you find some great new fic to add to your reading list. 

Which of these stories qualify as the best Fairy Tail fanfiction? That's up to the readers. Let your voice be heard and vote up the stories that you think deserve the top spot.
