Not really fanfic, maybe not even fiction at all, but "How to Lose Weight in 4 Easy Steps" was a hell of a story, basic but with excellent delivery. Won't take long either: it's under 1900 words.

Wow, that's still going on? Does it seem like the author's going to run out of stuff to write for this story anytime soon?
I don't even know what the thing's about beyond the fact that it revolves around Rainbow Dash heading east forever.

(Let me know if you need more information. I'm trying to be a spoiler-free as possible.)
A event that occurred in Equestria has Rainbow Dash heading off on a journey alone. All she is told about her target's destination is that it lies eastward on the other side of the world. Along the way, she meets new ponies, encounters foreign villages, cities and kingdoms, endures trials and tribulations, and learns more about the truth, secrets and history of the world they all live on, as well as its and her own destiny.

The story is an AU that splits off from Season 2.

Here is one person's testimonal/description of the made in a fairly recent post to someone else asking about the material:
not spoilery:
Without spoiling too much, the sequels do differ considerably from the opening story in that they're driven primarily by the growth and development of the characters encountered along the way, as well as Dash's continuing psychological transformation.

Moving immediately from Austraeoh to Eljunbyro can be a jarring experience if you decide to make it that far. But those early chapters encouraged me to soldier on through the confusion more than anything, and I can guarantee you'll be rewarded with what I can only describe as one crazy-awesome escapade across a plane almost too large to comprehend.
Here's another post:
slightly spoilery:
Whole story is about RD'S journey towards a somewhat mysterious goal. She actually done a lot. Involved in a few wars - civil and otherwise - prevented or initiated the overthrow of regimes, saved whole towns (or doomed them in a few cases). It is a story that is entirely focused on the trials involved with a massive journey. Think Lord of the Rings. There's an overarching plot, but along the way tons of hurdles must be overcome.

Never read it, but wow. That's well after how long it'd have taken for me to consider it dead, especially with so few chapters published in the first place.

Just read "What is Missing, What is Lost," which hit some nice crazy-Twi notes to go with tone and themeing that reminded me of parts of PH, in a pure drama between Twilight and Celestia.

The Victory at Ostagar series: http://www.redhen-publications.com/publications.html#

Five novels, based on Dragon Age: Origins. I think it's just Origins, although I'm only reading the second one right now. AU. The immediate threat from the Blight is dialed down (see the title), the political intrigue aspects are dialed way up. Loving it so far.

The Season of Grace is a beautiful season-appropriate FlutterMac shipfic. Builds an internal sense of nostalgia in service of the story and the ship, great atmosphere all around. Nice bit of worldbuilding in terms of the traditions, as well.

The Jet-Powered Pegasus is a nice combination of thriller and character piece, with a strong enough Scootaloo perspective that despite upon further thought actually kind of agreeing with the antagonist's original position, at the time I was entirely in Scootaloo's corner. Also has a structure that just kept pulling me along.

Whaaaaat?! Why
Through the Eyes of Another Pony is coming back after over three years without an update?! And now it's going to be an FiM-Undertale-??? triple crossover?!
Wat.
Still excited to have something from the very early days back. But wat.

Just finished "Second Person, Present Tense," a story about a sort-of amnesiac (still can kind of access the memories, but different consciousness and sense of self) dealing with her parents trying to therapy her back into who she was before the drug overdose that caused it. Tense and even a little frightening, it still kept a frame that vilified the people around her far less than might have been the case. It came up in the comments on a (semi-, I've been busy) recent Bad Horse blog. It's a bit longer than most of the things I've brought up here, but I thought it was worthwhile.

I've recently been working with a group translating a story from Russian to English as an English language editor. It's sci-fi, set in a (semi-? hard to say so far: it's completed, but since I don't read Russian, I only know what's been translated so far) dystopian future where artificial life forms can be made and programmed. Among them, ponies. Bits of mystery in there, it seems, too.
Prologue and first chapter are up here: http://www.fimfiction.net/story/324970/the-broken-toy. I think it's got some promise, and could be worth a few minutes to check out. (Also, any suggestions relating to how the prose could be handled now or in the future would be welcome.)

I've brought more Eva.

Reticence

-It's well-written mechanically
-It's post-Rebuild 3.33
-It's *finished* (and large)
-The author isn't trying to slap the WILLE crew down with his OC while yelling "YOU SO WROOOONG AND BAD PERSN"
-Actually, there aren't any notable OC
-Actually, the author doesn't seem to be trying to push anything on you at all
-The characters are reacting to things and developing like actual people
-The world is expanded in an interesting fashion

So... Get in the (fucking) robot.

And more.

A Century Apart sets the Second Impact and the events of NGE a hundred years earlier. Shinji is an IJN cadet, Gendo's an admiral, other characters have their positions altered accordingly, Evangelions are dieselpunk mechs, Zeppelins are a thing.

Very well-written story.

Children of an Elder God

An AU of Evangelion, made by fusion with Lovecraftian mythos. Very well written.

The level of character trauma overtakes NGE and approaches Darkest Dungeon Horizons.

Altered Destinies


Follows the NGE series (one chapter for one episode), with a twist. It's a shipfic, but I sort of like it.

Chuck Finley has a novella out. It's a mystery/thriller set in a planet in a sci-fi world (apparently run by MrNumbers) that's just lost FTL communication and all its high-level AI, and is fun, fast-paced, and at times quite funny. Liking detective stories (so much time in high school years spent with Law and Order), I thought that side of things went pretty well, and the base sci-fi concept is one I really enjoyed (but I'm probably biased). Consider checking it out.

Gob Hobblin writes excellent Eva stories. Although, one stands out for me:

Someplace Vast And Dry (FF.net)

It's a 'fusion' AU, with elements from Deus Ex: HR and Ghost in the Shell.
