These are a list of Hey Arnold! fan fictions that I find are written superbly, while staying within character.  Keep in mind that this is only a small selection of what I would recommend reading, because there are a vast number of fanfics outside this list that are equally as good.  You can check some of them out by visiting the HA! fanfiction communities listed in the “Links” page.  Happy reading!

1. “A BitterSweet Catastrophe” by Pointy Objects

Story set where Arnold and Helga are in High School.  Will a life-threatening matter bring them together?  Well written, subtle, and sweet.

2. “The Most Beautiful Gift” by DarthRoden aka Carl

3. “Arnold’s Couch Confessions” by DarthRoden aka Carl

4. “The Man of My Dreams” by Pyrus Japonica

5. “Gerald Speaks” by Pyrus Japonica

6. “An Arnold Visits Arnie Essay” by Anomynous

An excellent analysis on the episode “Arnold visits Arnie” by… y’know… that famous poet, Anomynous.  Very well-written and thourough.  This guy knows what he’s talking about.

7. “The Booth” by Teh-Drabbler

8. “Expectations” by K.S.P.I.C.E.R.

9. “The Argument” by Pyrex Shards

Pyrex Shards digs a little deeper into the Pataki family, as Olga overhears her parents argue something that will change the course of Helga’s life forever.  Intense!  (Some foul language in here, so it’s not for everyone.)

10. “And There He Goes” by WizKid94

11. “Awkward” by Pointy Objects

12. “100 Years” by Franny-Pazz182

13. “White Roses aka The First Time” by hannah-kraft

14. “Move It, Football Head! – A Helga/Arnold Manifesto” by poisonivory

I always liked Arnold and Helga’s relationship, but I could never exactly explain why.  In her super-thorough and in-depth post, poisonivory gives one of the best insights into their relationship and gives you further reason why you should love them.  A must-read for all AxH fans, even if you are not a AxH shipper.

15. “My Last Bow” by The Wax Factory

  1. I still say that the two best ‘epics’ of the HA! fandom are:

    Missing Pieces, by Poisonivory – http://www.fanfiction.net/s/634848/1/Missing_Pieces

    Hot Air, by Pyrus Japonica – http://www.fanfiction.net/s/828017/1/Hot_Air

    Hey cool! I’m on this list. Thanks for adding The Argument. I also see some fics here that I have not personally read. I’ll probably end up reading them sometime.

      Hey, Robert! I think you deserve to be on here with that story. I hope you’ll like how I mention it in my upcoming essay on the Patakis.

  7. Pyrus Japonica Says:

    Thanks for the links! What a great site you have going here, keep up the good work! I’m enjoying looking through it all. I’ll have to check out some of these other fics.

    @Squirreltamer Thx, I love Missing Pieces too, how can anyone not? 🙂

  8. Hellerick Says:

    I feel bad that the featured fanworks of the week disappear later. Tendra, maybe you should archive them somewhere? Like, keeping a table of earlier featured works?

  9. Cathy Says:

    Thank you for this list. I’m glad to find some great works of HA fanfiction.
    I am also honored to have a piece on the list. Thank you for adding “And There He Goes”. Glad you enjoyed.

    I’ve always liked this one – it doesn’t exactly go along the lines of what Craig Bartlett said would happen in The Jungle Movie, but it’s pretty good, anyway. 🙂

    1. Tendra Says:

      I’ll check that one out. Thanks for the recommendation!

  11. Leili Says:

    Another suggestion!! D:

    That whole flashback had me squealing with joy xD

      I know, I loved it, too. It sounds very canon! 😀
