1. What Could Have Been
This Fanfic is not really a crossover but more a combination between:
- The Originals
- The Vampire Diaries
It occurs in an alternate reality that takes place right after the Originals finale and where the children from the Legacies are brought into the storyline.
Caroline realizes she has feelings for Klaus the moment he dies, and this has left her in a complete mess.
Her family is so important to her, but Klaus is the man she really wanted to be with.
But then it turns out that he might not be dead after all, and Caroline has some choices to make considering him and her daughters.
It is a great story for Klaroline fans and it combines all three series in a fun way.

And somehow, Hope ends up in Chicago in 2010, not knowing how she got there and if she will be able to get back.

Even though it is in the past and she knows he will die, she still does everything she can to spend time with him.

There are a few original characters, including the main female character Mackenzie Alemaund.
Mackenzie is an 18-year-old girl who gets kidnapped by two vampires according to Elijah’s orders.
But this is not for nothing because Mackenzie isn’t completely human herself.
Only she never knew this until now.
This fanfic contains everything the original shows have including, slow-burn romance, fluff, and lots of magic.
It is 45 chapters long and has over 17,000 hits already.

Landon Kirby and his girlfriend Hope Mikaelson jump through a portal to save their friends.
The portal transports them to Los Angeles, where they are found by LAPD Detective Chloe Decker and her partner Lucifer Morningstar.
All the while, they are still being tracked by Malivore, and Chloe and her friends try to help the kids to find a way back home.
But whether they can do this without destroying Los Angeles remains to be seen.

6. A Secret Worth Keeping
Hope is having some car trouble when a boy she has never met before offers to help her.
When she finds out he is going in the same direction as her, she decides to drive with him.
During this trip, they get to know each other better and find out that they have more in common than she initially thought.
And the more time they spend together, the more feelings Hope is starting to get for this strange boy.
The story is completely off canon, but that is what makes it so much fun to read.
It is part two of the “Fun in the Sun” series.
7. A Collection of Handon

There are 37 short stories in total, and they are all very different, from happy and sweet stories to sad and heartbreaking stories.
There really is something for everyone who loves this couple.
Most stories are short, some are a bit longer, but all are very easy to read and feel like they could fit into the show.
8. The Tribrid and The Heretic (Hosie)
This fanfic is told from different points of view, switching between Josie and Hope.
It takes place the day Hope jumps into Maltivore, and from there, it changes from canon completely.
The moment Hopes jumps, she is removed from everyone’s memory.
But Josie still has some of Hope’s blood, making her able to question the gaps in her memory.
She then slowly starts to remember things and tries to get Hope back.
Because of the many changes from canon, it can take a little while to get into this story.
But it is written really nicely and the writer does justice to all these characters.
9. The Secret Heir
This fanfic takes place after Legacies season two, episode 16, and includes characters from both the Vampire Diaries and the Originals.
Hope has a vision about a strange girl and her grandmother Esther.
But when she wakes up, she discovers that a lot of the vision has already happened.
Hope then has to deal with the fact that her father had a secret wife and another child.
Of course, this has a significant impact on her life, but also on the whole Mikaelson family dynamic.
This fanfic binds the shows together perfectly and gives a good twist on the canon even though it is a completely original story.
10. A Bond in the Dark
When Hope Mikaelson jumps into Maltivore, she takes Ryan Clarke with her.
And everyone except Ryan has forgotten all about her, making her enemy the only one left who really knows her.
Because he is all she has left, they grow closer to each other every day.
Hope still can’t forgive him for everything he did to her, but he is starting to grow on her, and she begins to understand him better.
This story revolves around the enemies-to-lovers trope and is a slow burn.
Even though the writer did diverge from canon completely, it feels like a story that could have happened on the show.
