If you are looking for some great ACOTAR fanfiction, then you have come to the right place. 

The ACOTAR series is by far the most popular series by Sarah J. Maas. And it has many different elements which attract a lot of people.

If you like romance, strong female characters, and true fantasy stories, the ACOTAR books might be just the thing for you.

Along with the book and the upcoming series, there is a whole world of A Court of Thorns and Roses series fanfiction out there. 

There are countless stories out there that feature Feyre, Rhysand, Cassian, and the rest of the inner circle. 

Keep reading to find out more about some of these amazing and original stories. 

1. ACOMAF Part 1: The House of Beasts

This totally original image of Rhysand (and the remaining images in this post) were auto-generated by Artificial Intelligence from a text prompt!

These are the first 13 chapters in a large fanfic story.

It is basically A Court of Mist and Fury but told from the perspective of Rhysand.

The chapters almost exactly follow the story from the original book.

They roughly contain the first 4 chapters of the book.

And are mostly the same as the original but from a different point of view.

It indeed is an interesting twist to the familiar story and well-executed.

And with over 226,000 hits, it is by far one of the most popular fanfics out there.

2. ACOMAF Part 2: The House of Wind

The story as mentioned above continues in this fanfic.

Needless to say that it has the same writer as part one.

This story is also from the perspective of Rhysand.

This part of the story contains chapters 14 through 27.

The focus is on the period after Rhysand takes Feyre from Tamlin’s house and brings her to Velaris.

In the first part of this story, the writer continues to follow the original story.

On the other hand, the writer has used the liberty to fill in the thoughts of Rhysand.

Maybe this is the story we all have been waiting for.

Nevertheless, keeping close to the original and still giving it a twist makes this a great story to read.

3. Embers & Light

Cassian Fanart

Where the previous two followed the original story with mainly Rhysand and Feyre, this one is different.

This story is a fanfic about Cassian and Nesta.

We read about the growing relationship between Cassian and Nesta in a very fun and easy way.

This story is written as if a Court of Silver Flames did not happen, or maybe it was written before that.

But even so, this is a very nice story because of the way it is written.

There is a total of 52 chapters in this story.

It is a real slow burn and some of the chapters have some big cliffhangers which make you want to read more.

This story has reached a big crowd and received over 131,000 hits.

4. The Autumn Flame

Lucientn Fanart

The writer of this story lets us know that they are just pretending a Court of Frost and Starlight never happened.

Apparently, they did not enjoy it and decided to give another twist to the Lucien and Elain story.

We follow Lucien and Elain as they get to know each other better.

But also in the meantime travel around Prythian to visit other courts after the war.

It is an incredibly long story and contains over 600 chapters.

The writer has been adding to this story for the past two years.

And it isn’t clear if the story is now finished or if there is more to come.

It has a big fanbase, and over 115,000 people have already checked it out.

5. To Deceive a Deceiver

Feyre Fanart

This story was written before a Court of Wings and Ruin.

And this makes it so that the writer had some freedom in writing the story without actually knowing what will happen.

The story is built into 36 chapters and the writer made it clear that it is not yet finished.

We mostly follow Feyre and Rhysand throughout the story.

Feyre is very much in love with Rhysand, but she does not believe in soulmates.

She would rather just see how the relationship goes.

But Rhysand isn’t accepting just that and does all he can to prove to her that they are made for each other.

There are a few cliffhangers in the story that keep readers coming back for more.

6. A Court of Fire and Starlight

Astra Fanart

This story is unlike any of the others because it does not follow the main characters.

Instead, this story has a main focus on Eris and Astra.

There are some spoilers in this fanfic about a Court of Silver Flames.

So if you haven’t read that book yet, keep this in mind when reading this story.

The story contains 65 chapters and an epilogue.

The writer made a nice ending to the story, so there is no doubt that this is it.

This story has a large fanbase, especially since it isn’t about a very loved character.

Over 87,000 people have read at least some portion of this story.

7. A Court of Whispers and Song

Gwyn fanart

In this story we mostly follow Gwyn and Azriel, and see how that relationship progresses.

Since Gwyn has been through some horrible abuse in the past this story contains some trigger warnings.

There is some explicit language in some of the chapters and referral to the sexual abuse Gwyn had to endure.

I think this story will be full of the Gwyn and Azriel story a lot of readers want to read.

The writer truly captured the characters in a wonderful way.

There are 69 chapters in total, including the prologue.

The writer still updates the story regularly, so keep checking back if you enjoyed it.

8. A Court of Light and Melody

This entire story is from Gwyn’s point of view.

It is another Azriel and Gwyn fanfic, telling us if they will eventually end up together.

Because the story of Azriel is also connected to that of Elain and Lucien, we also see some references to that.

The story is built up into 83 regular chapters and a bonus chapter.

Every chapter starts with a quote and song to give you a feel for the theme of the chapter.

It looks like the story is complete, but maybe the writer will add some more.

The story has over 79,000 hits and is therefore one of the more popular Gwyn and Azriel fanfics.

9. Pretty Little Angel

Elain Fanart

This is another fanfic about Azriel, but this time it’s with Elain.

Elain follows Azriel through Velaris, trying to get a better idea about who he really is.

This is a fanfic with some pretty graphic sexual subjects.

And it is more like ACOTAR meets fifty shades of grey.

The story contains 29 chapters and an epilogue.

The writer has made it clear that the story is finished and has given it a lovely ending.

A lot of the readers commented that they are sad it ended.

So this makes this fanfic one of the most popular Azriel and Elain stories out there.

10. A Court of Nightmares and Starlight

This story takes place ten years after the war for Prythian.

It is clearly written before A court of Silver flames came out because Feyre and Rhysand have been trying for a baby for all this time.

The most important storyline here is about Rhysand and Feyre and their journey to getting pregnant.

There are also references to some political issues.

And we do see all of the inner circle in this story.

So if you enjoy another take on Feyre’s pregnancy, this is the right story for you.

There are a total of 26 chapters all an excellent length.

Many readers have enjoyed this story because it has over 65,000 hits.
