A Trowa & Quatre centric story, Echoes of the Rising Sun by Anne Olsen will be not finished.
Set in World War era. Has two arcs. The first arc is finished, but the second is (permanently) unfinished. 1st Arc- "Shadowboxing": "A young scientist working for the Germans starts to have doubts that what he is doing is really for the good of the Fatherland and mankind in general. Can the team sent by the Allied Forces reach him before the Germans do?" 2nd Arc- "Sins of the Fathers": "After his capture by the Nazis, Duo comes to the realisation that his torturer's mental stability is...well...debatable. Can Duo maintain his own sanity long enough for his team to mount a rescue mission?" It has been stated by the author that it will remain permanently incomplete. It will also be reworked as an original later, and taken off the web.
The Confessor Series & Mord-Sith! by Annabell. A long fantasy action story centric on 1x2- but cuts off right near the end. The author has left the fandom. Can be found on GWA (www.gwaddiction.com).
Heh, wouldn't it be funny if I'm posting to a dead community, about an apparently dead story? XD
I hope I'm not out of line here. I'm acutally *shocked* that this one hasn't made it to the Graveyard yet. Perhaps it's not as cold as I feared.Title: Bridlewood ManorAuthor:
PG-13 (T on FFN)Pairing:
VERY slowly developing 1+2 --> 1x2 (but it made it there before dying!); others including 3-4-3Chapters:
94About the story:
It's an AU. A massive, massive AU. Mitsugi herself best explains it, in her notes preceding chapter one:Welcome to Episode One of Bridlewood Manor. For those of you who have no idea what this is about, let me tell you that it's not your ordinary fanfiction, and point you in the direction of my website...but if you haven't got time for it right now, I'll give you the condensed intro. Bridlewood Manor is a story partly modelled after the classic British TV series, Upstairs, Downstairs, and it takes place in "real-time" minus 100 years exactly. Each episode will have a page of accompanying notes, artwork, sounds, what-have-you, on my website. This fic will continue for as long as I'm a member of FFN, so we're lookin' at the long haul, don't ya know.
Translation? It's set at the turn of the century in Victorian England. Heero is a spy; the rest of the cast show up in and around his targeted estate (Relena is the estate mistress). It travels all over the map, addressing nearly every emotional crossroads available. It has kittens and everyone exercising their wittiest dialogue, and it even includes scientists! ♥
This is seriously my favorite GW fanfic, EVER. T_T And it had to go and die.Death record:
First posted in 2001 at fanfiction.net, BW progressed steadily through till roughly 2003, iirc, at which point it stalled for nearly a year. Mitsugi provided one or two more chapters, explanation of the extreme RL situation that was keeping her from the fic, and apologies, in early summer 2004. At that point, she expressed plans to go on a longterm hiatus upon reaching chapter 100, and hoped we'd all hold in over the course of a long drought.
However, chapter 94, parts one and two, is the last we've heard of Bridlewood, and when she posted it she intended
95 to be out shortly afterward. It wasn't.
Her website was last updated in October of 2004, at which point she included the full-length chapter 94, both halves. Since then, all's been quiet.
Mitsugi was a very steady updater, setting and keeping weekly chapter dates for herself, but when her RL issues came up, she became less spastic. I, and my few other friends who read BW, still held out faint hope that 95 will arrive after another year's hiatus, but as winter approaches my hope dims even further.

raletha: It Lives!
Well, fellow gravediggers, I believe we have our first resurrection (though we can't claim responsibility for it ^_^).
HF (Hilary Fox of On The QT
) has begun a restructure & continuation of her wonderful, wonderful post-canon fic Babylon
(PG-13 - 3x4, 1x2 - friendship, angst)
I found this fic when I was very very diehard 1x4x1.
Title: Tears in the Rain
Pairing: Potential future 1+4/1x4 (undecided)
The story so far involves a missing Quatre Winner, a Heero Yuy sent to investigate an incident at a manufacturing facility, and Newtype themes.
I found it on ff.net where it was last updated 5 July 2003.
Very realistic and intriguing and appeals to the inner 1x4x1 fangirl as well as the geeky wanna-be engineer.
The silver lining is the author confesses to being notoriously slow - five chapters in two years - so my fingers are crossed for the appearance of chapter 6 sometime in 2004.
Am I allowed to suggest a fic for burial? *looks around for approval* Ah, well.. I'll got for it. Just slap my hand if I mess up, ok?Whispering Pines
by Pale Rider
Pairings: 1x2, 3x4, 5xS
Warnings: Yaoi, shounen ai, lemon, het, ncs, violence
Archived: Death and the Dragon
I read this fic when I first got into the fandom and I've been watching for updates ever since. It's a school fic and I remember enjoying it, though I don't remember the exact plot. I've tried to contact the author in the past, but I think s/he may have left the fandom. Too bad... I would have liked to read the rest of it.

This was one of my favourite fics when I first got into the fandom, and I still love it.Lyric's Candlelight masterpiece.
It's not so much the style as it is:
1)the characterization, which is extremely fresh,
2)the character interaction (both beautiful and dysfunctional),
3)the gorgeous A.U. historical setting.
Oh, and there are some great lemons. ^_^ (and Trowa fangirlism. squeee!)
I know she was reposting this around september of 2003, but a new chapter hasn't come out since March 2002, and I'm not sure if it's archived anywhere other than the 3x1/1x3 ML. Chapters 1-11 are at Silent Passion Lyric's Ficcie
genre: Historical A.U.
Pairings: 1x3, 1xC.B., Past 6x1.
Chapters: 13 (so far)
I realize Silent Passion is being moved as of now, so I hope the next two chapters will be published with the move. If they aren't, I'll contact Lyric about archiving at Myriad (or love Trowa, Rally bear?).
Another couple fic recs for some fics which--to the best of knowledge--are still in progress.
"Trowa Lin" (for the graveyard--it hasn't been updated in at least 2 years as far as I can tell ^^;) and "Picture Windows" (for the mortuary--no updates for 16 months, since November 2002) by Maureen. Both are 3x4 multipart AU's. Maureen has a beautiful lyrical style, and I hold out hope these fics may one day be continued. For now, they're still very good, memorable reads and can be found at her website Silent Reflection
Okay, I figured I'd go ahead and start with one fic (rather than waiting 'til I had a huge list)Babylon
by Hilary Fox, found at On the QT
. Even unfinished, this is one of my most favourite post-canon fics. Pairings include past 3x4x3, past 1x2x1, current 1+4, 2+3, and 5+S, though they're more friendship type relationships than romantic ones.
The Fanfiction Graveyard is officially open for recs. Once we get a handful of recs I'll have the site up and running. Oh so fun!
