Though it has only been out for a short time, it is a widely popular game worldwide.
There is a large amount of fanfiction based on this game, and it seems that the number of stories will only increase as the game continues to rise in popularity.

1. False Azure in the Windowpane
The first Elden Ring fanfiction that we will look at is one of the more popular in the genre with nearly 20,000 hits.
This story is still a work in progress, so there is a lot of great content to look forward to.
In this fanfic, Malenia does not receive a mortal wound.
In fact, her prosthetic arm gets struck off, but it does not take any of her flesh along with it.
Though she though that she was far superior to the Tarnished in skill, that does not seem to be the truth.
This story explores many scenarios and situations we do not see in the game.
We get some insight into some of the characters’ thoughts and learn a lot about who they are.
2. Thy Darkest Moon
The next Elden Ring fanfiction is a very brief story with less than 4,000 words.
Though it may be short, it is not lacking in any way.
There is just as much magic and action filling the pages of this story as there is any other.
This story opens with an alternate universe than the one we are used to.
In this world, The Tarnished never abandoned Ranni’s side.
As The Tarnished struggles against the Elden Beast, Ranni never leaves his side.
They stick together until the bitter end.
This is a sweet story about true love and loyalty, and it is definitely worth a read.
3. Remembrance of the Golden
Next up is an Elden Ring fanfiction that has close to 13,000 hits.
In this story, the Greater Will resorts to delving into the power of the Crucible.
He is attempting to remake the dead Godwyn the Golden, but this only presents more problems that must be dealt with.
Godwyn now has a tarnished body and no memories from the past.
He must find his way through a familiar yet entirely new land.
This story is packed full of adventure, action, and magic.
There are battles and wars to fight, as well as romance and some lovely moments of friendship.
4. Kindling Maiden
Up next is an Elden Ring fanfiction that just might have your head spinning.
In this story, it has been many years since the Erdtree had been set ablaze and many years since Melina left her Tarnished due to his decision to inherit the Frenzied Flame.
Somehow, the Lord of Chaos did not rise from the ashes.
Now, Melina is set on following his trail and discovering why he chose this path.
Though she is upset and confused, she knows that everything he ever did was for her.
This is a somewhat depressing story that could leave you with tears in your eyes.
Don’t miss out on this one if you are looking for something that is both full of love and full of hurt.
5. The Stars are out Tonight
Next up is an Elden Ring fanfiction with close to 10,000 hits.
This story is a bit different from some of the others, and it contains a fair amount of religious imagery and symbolism.
All that is needed in the Lands Between is a Tarnished with the strength of body and mind as well as a maiden with the power to put it back together when it falls apart.
When everything is said and done, perhaps they will be able to watch the stars together and look over the land that they saved.
This story is intense and many claim it is quite well-written.
The symbolism in this story makes it fairly unique on our list.
6. Maiden’s Tryst
The next Elden Ring fanfiction has less than 7,000 words, but is still quite popular.
If you are looking for a bit of a smutty story, this is the one for you.
This is a collection of somewhat connected vignettes that focus on Melina, and her increasing fondness for the Tarnished.
There is a lot of pining and self-discovery in this story, as well as some awarded attempts at flirting.
There is also a lot of love and romance to discover here, as well.
7. Of No Renown
Next up is an Elden Ring fanfiction that is still in the works.
There are currently nine chapters in this story, but hopefully many more to come.
In this story, we see many of the same plot points and adventures that we know from the original game.
In this world, however, the Tarnished have the option to become Morgott’s consort.
Of course, this changes everything as we know it, and we then get to embark on a new and somewhat unusual journey.
This story also contains a female Tarnished, and a very exciting love story that progresses slowly, but steadily.
8. Noli Me Tangere
The next Elden Ring fanfiction that we will look at is a story that has nearly 8,000 hits.
There is quite a bit of violence in this story, but the biggest appeal is the character development that we see from just about everyone.
The author of this story is an excellent writer who clearly knows these characters very well.
This story dives into the upbringing of Morgott and Mohg.
We get to see great details about how they became who we know them to be and why they make some of the decisions that we may not understand.
There are a lot of depressing moments throughout this story, but there are just as many that are full of hope.
If you decide to read this story, be prepared for a roller coaster of emotions on every page.
9. Paleblooded Tarnished
Up next is an Elden Ring fanfiction that takes us on a wild journey.
This story is full of twists and turns.
In one world, Lady Maria was felled by the Good Hunter who gave her a merciful death.
In another, she awakes in an empty church, now a Tarnished with paleblood.
The premise of this story is certainly one of the more unique on this list.
Plus, this story only has five chapters, so it is a fairly quick read.
10. I Will Tell You About the Sun
The final Elden Ring fanfiction that we will examine in this article is mostly a tale of character development.
This fanfiction goes deep into Morgott and his childhood.
We learn that he shared his childhood with sewer rats, and this upbringing shaped him and who he grows up to be.
There is not a lot of plot in this fanfiction, but there are a lot of interesting backstories to read about.
Though it may not be one of the most exciting Elden Ring fanfiction stories, it is definitely one of the most interesting.
