It doesn’t take long before the lawyer and some of her friends become fully immersed in this fantasy world.

It takes place in an alternate universe and diverges quite a lot from canon.

4. Gladiator

It goes off canon for both the comics and the TV show and is, therefore, a really unique story.

In this world, the Fire Nation is in charge of two important nations now that there is no Avatar.

Sokka, the water tribe warrior, is doing all he can to protect his people when a group of enemies captures him.

But then he realizes that his fate is in the hands of the Fire Nation Princess.

As you can guess by the title, this is a Naruto story but in an alternate dimension.

This fanfic follows the original storyline, but changes are made with the original characters and other developments.

A young girl tries to live a life as a ninja with more honor than in the cruel world around her.

It is very hard for her to make a life of her own and not change everything about herself.

The people in her town don’t like people who are different.

There are 889 chapters that are not too long, making the story easy to read.

9. Illusion IS Reality

A Gravity Falls fangirl wakes up inside the body of Bill Cipher.

And if this isn’t bad enough, she has also been transported back in time to before the canon events happened.

But this girl knows everything there is to know about Gravity Falls.

And now she has a chance to change the story lines she didn’t care for.

Only will she be able to deal with the consequences or maybe she doesn’t care about that at all.

The story really follows most of the events from Gravity falls, but with some huge twists.

Making it a fun and long story to read and entertain you.

10. Glee: The New York Story

In this story, all the main characters from Glee are shown as they try to navigate life in New York City.

It basically reads as Glee episodes with all the usual drama and heartbreak.

Only now, all of them are in New York.
