Let’s face it… if you’re an Odyssey nerd, you probably can’t get enough of AIO. And since you can’t, you’ve probably read every single fanfiction there is to read.
But in case you haven’t, here’s a list of all the fanfiction that I know about. I rate them by what status the author is at, who the main characters are, and what rating the story gets (using the ESERB video game rating system, E-M)
(Not listed in best-to worst order)
- David Hilder. Status: Inactive. Rating: E for Everyone. Link: https://www.scribd.com/user/263530004/DavidHilder
David Hilder’s stories are well written slice-of-life stories, usually in a series. His stories include the Malachi Letters, a 5-part fanfiction series about Malachi writing letters to his superiors about Odyssey. Another story series is called the Lost Album 51 Stories, featuring people who disappeared after the album 50 hiatus. Another one of his story series features what it would be like 20 years after Album 58, called The Future, Today, though it is an unfinished series. In my personal opinion, Conversations and Colloquialisms is his best story, in which Connie and Eugene are having a conversation while at Whit’s End on a slow day.
- Destiny. Status: Inactive. Rating: E for Everyone
Destiny seems to have had short-lived dreams of being a fanfiction author, writing only two chapters of a story called Moving On. Her focus is Connie’s feelings after Something Old, Something New. The readers can perhaps draw inspiration from this incomplete tale.
- Mariogeek. Status: (Well, um, it’s me, and I’m still writing) Rating: E10+ for Everyone 10 and up

Mariogeek (me) is a relatively recent fanfiction newcomer, having only been around since August. My focus is on the Meltsners, particularly Eugene, being my favorite character. The latest complete a mystery featuring, Eugene, Buck, Richard Maxwell, and Monty Whittaker. I am currently working on a new one featuring more outlandish explosions and car chases, except I’m going to be bold kill off some characters this time. I gave a T rating to all of my stories so far, but I have given an E10+ rating here because there’s only a lot of action and explosions and stuff. And I’m a pretty bad writer so have fun! (And I’ve actually posted a few chapters of the latest one on the blog so look under the category In the Shadows.
- Ameraka, aka Evelyn Weibel. Status: Active. Rating: T for Teen-M for Mature
Evelyn’s stories are gripping action/adventure/mystery/romance, written extremely well and within character. Her focus is Jason and Connie, and how they have a romance and eventually get married in this multi-story series. However, the T-M rating is richly deserved, there are vivid tales of gory torture (set in the aftermath of the Labyrinth 3-parter), tons of violent action, and sexual themes. However, all stories are written from a Christian viewpoint, so if you are old enough, these could be good stories to read. I personally don’t like that dark of a story so I haven’t read all of these through again, except for stories 1-4 or so.
- The Adventures in Odyssey fanfiction group. Status: Active. Rating: E-M
The Adventures in Odyssey fanfiction group is founded and run by the author mentioned above, Evelyn Weibel. However, it includes many stories that were not written by Evelyn, many of them single and incomplete, written by authors who thought they were going to finish something, or finished a single fanfiction and never wrote another one. If you wish to pick through these, you might get some good reading out of it. The group also includes the stories written by Mariogeek.
- Hannah Morgan, AKA Penny Bassett. Status: Active. Rating: E for Everyone
Hannah, though not the best writer, has some really great insight into Buck’s life and thoughts after coming to live with Eugene and Katrina. She has also written various other one-shots about the Meltsners, including what happened on the fishing trip between Eugene and Buck. Her fanfiction is definitely worth reading.
- Odyssey Scoop’s Chicken Soup section. Status: Inactive. Rating: E for Everyone
There are some gems in here, particularly the episode scripts written by Daniel Sheets. I say the status is inactive, because it has never been updated for as long as I have known it existed.
- More of Hannah Morgan, AKA Penny Bassett. Status: Active. Rating: T for Teen Link: http://www.odysseyscoop.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=23&t=2940
She updates more often on the Odyssey Scoop Forum, and has some SERIOUS fanfictions going on here. They’re a little bit more mature so I put the T rating. If she ever posts these ones on her site then that rating will change too.
