Selected fanfics

 

Five Days in Padesca, by Laura Kaye    https://archiveofourown.org/works/663681

 In canon, Klaus and Dorian never develop a relationship. Some fic writers do let them get together, though.

 

Too Good to be True, by Kadorienne, and its two alternative sequels, The Course of True Love, and The Truth Shall Set You Free    https://archiveofourown.org/series/3900

Some fics let them get together, but not before considerable angst and difficulty.

 

Deep Waters, by Thia    https://archiveofourown.org/works/992444

Then there’s the idea that maybe they both enjoy the sparring and teasing but they’re both terrified of what an actual relationship might mean.

 

Seeing is Believing, by Cassie Ingaben    https://archiveofourown.org/works/42265

One of Dorian’s formative experiences in canon was being coerced into having sex at age 13 by a family friend. A number of fic writers have speculated how that traumatic event might have shaped Dorian’s thinking and behaviour.

 

Peripeteia, by Sylvia    https://archiveofourown.org/works/41224

Other writers have taken the idea of traumatic childhood experiences to explain why Klaus seems to be so uptight about sex.

 

The Iron Mask by Kadorienne https://archiveofourown.org/works/99234

Klaus gets amnesia. Excellent psychological exploration, great writing.

 

Moonlight Shadow, by Joram    https://archiveofourown.org/works/87974

In canon, Dorian only worked for Klaus once, and refused the honey trap request made in The Seventh Seal – but there are plenty of fanfics that have Dorian working for NATO as a contractor.

 

Breaking and Entering, by Neery    https://archiveofourown.org/works/34385

Klaus & Dorian are tough, ruthless men. They have to be in their respective professions.

 

 Anger Not the Old Lion, by Anne-Li    https://archiveofourown.org/works/125877

Klaus’s reputation for courage, heroism and dedication to his job is strong in canon, and in fan fiction too.

 

Not the Only Fruit, by Nomad    https://archiveofourown.org/works/835183

 Fandom often writes Klaus as sexually inexperienced or else not even interested. Is he gay? Straight? Asexual? Is he repressed? Not interested? Hiding a raging sexual appetite?

 

A Thousand Kisses … and Sea Monsters, by Anne-Li    https://archiveofourown.org/works/4296882

 Some writers play with alternate universes. Here’s a story that re-tells an early episode from the manga, set in an odd universe in which sea-creatures pose an ever-present danger to humans, and humans have interbred with sea-creatures for generations.

Silent Night by Kat and Whizzy

Christmas at Schloss Eberbach. Klaus is working on a piano piece he's composing when Eroica shows up.

During later Christmases their relationship deepens. Klaus's father finds out - and then the entire extended Eberbach family will come to celebrate Christmas at the Schloss …
