If you are looking for great Resident Evil fanfiction, this is the post for you.
Resident Evil is a Japanese horror-survival shooter game produced by Capcom.
After the major success of the games, multiple Hollywood movies were also made.
So if you like horror-based shooter games, then Resident Evil might be just the thing for you.
Along with the games and movies, there is also a whole world of Resident Evil fanfiction out there.
But in this post, I will write about some of the most popular Resident Evil fanfiction according to hits received on Archive Of Our Own.
Keep reading to find out more about some of these popular stories.
1. Et Sanguinem Innocentem
In this story, we see a few of the characters we know from the game and also an original male character.
As with Resident Evil, this story is a sort of horror story with werewolves, vampires, and more of that sort.
When a new man arrives in town, strange forces seem to take over the place.
The Lady of the Castle tries everything she can to get him into her clutches.
And it is taking all his strength to free himself from her.
This is a dark and fascinating story that goes completely off canon.
There are 35 chapters in total, and it has over 44,000 hits.
2. a lesser woman
This story occurs in an alternate world where Ethan never killed Lady Dimitrescu’s daughters.
And because of these actions, or lack thereof, it makes for a whole new path in the story.
What could have been is put in perspective in this story.
Alcina never found out Rose was brutally murdered, so her actions and choices aren’t influenced by revenge.
This is a story with a lot of what-ifs and changes to the canon but in a very good way.
It is a real slow-burn that is very dialogue driven.
You can see that the writer did put a lot of thought into the story.
3. On The Rocks
In this story, the reader plays a part in it and has interactions with the main characters.
The reader is working in a bar in one of the biggest cities in Romania, not because the work is so much fun, but because there are bills to be paid.
But Karl Heisenberg shows up at the bar and makes it very clear he isn’t planning to go anywhere soon.
This brings complications into the reader’s life, but nothing they can’t handle.
The story is part 1 in the “On the Rocks” series, so check out the rest if you enjoyed this.
4. Something Wicked
When Alcina Dimitrescu sees a pack of Lycans run through the woods, she knows something bad is about to happen.
So she tracks them down, only to find a massive slaughter with dead people everywhere.
But amidst the dead are a man and a small baby, barely alive still.
Alcina has no doubt in her mind that she has to save them both, and so she takes them with her.
Only this is just the start of a whole bunch of trouble coming her way.
The story is ten chapters long and has over 28,000 hits.
5. paint me like one of them dead girls
This is another story where the reader plays a part in it and interacts mainly with Leon S. Kennedy.
It is September 1998, and you, the reader, are nineteen years old and living in Racoon City.
But then all hell breaks loose, and you are running from mutated, inhuman monsters, trying your best to survive while these monsters keep tracking you down.
With the help of Leon S. Kennedy, you somehow manage to survive long enough to come across something even worse.
This story is part 1 of the “Alphabet virus” series.
But so far, a second part has yet to be published.
6. This crystal is not for display
This is yet another story where the reader plays a part in it and interacts with Alcina Dimitrescu.
You, the reader, are working at a museum as the director when an anonymous package arrives.
When you check the crate, your eye falls on a female-shaped crystal.
But this, of course, is no ordinary crystal.
And once you take it out, you are dragged into a crazy world like you have never seen before.
This story is slightly different from the others on this list, with less horror and gore.
But it still has a real Resident Evil feel to it.
7. The Siren’s Curse
This story takes place before the events from the first game and then also follows canon.
The reader is yet again the main character and, in this case, is female and owns a tavern.
In the small town where you live and work, people are under the heavy influence of Mother Miranda.
Life is mostly the same and uninteresting until, one day, the Duke walks into the tavern.
He warns you about your uncle and Mother Miranda’s influence on him.
And you decide to go find your uncle.
The story is original and already 40 chapters long.
8. The Agent Next Door
Emma just moved into her new apartment and has met her neighbor Chris Redfield.
He is a bit of a reclusive man and is rarely actually around.
But Emma wants to get to know him better because something is interesting about him.
And this isn’t always for the best because some people may not be how they seem at first glance.
There is a minimal amount of gore in this story, making it one of the more mild Resident Evil stories.
It is more of a slow-burn romance story that also touches on the hurt themes.
Although a nice story, it’s not for the Resident Evil fans who love horror and gore.
9. The beauty of the grotesque
In this story, we see Salvatore Moreau feeling very lonely.
To help him, Mother Miranda gifts him his very own human to play with.
The girl was meant to become a new Maiden blood, but Moreau wants to keep her for himself.
And then the lines between love and obsession become a bit unclear.
The girl is a prisoner but still in love with Moreau.
As you might expect, this story has a few trigger warnings.
10. We’ll Survive Together
This story follows up on the Resident Evil 2 remake, especially Leon Route B.
It is another story where the reader is the main character.
You, the reader, are injured and completely alone in the Raccoon City Police Department.
That is where Leon finds you.
With another rookie police officer, you try to escape the city because the mutants are spreading quickly.
This fanfic shows the power of friendships and how important it is to trust in someone.
The story is part 1 in the “Shoot ‘Em in The Head” series, so make sure to read the rest as well if you enjoy this one.
