Here are the stories that I have personally found to be the best of the best on fictionpress. The kind of stories that make butterflies erupt in your tummy and make your heart do gymnastics and when you're done reading them, you find yourself sitting there and wishing that the story would come true for you. Some complete, some incomplete, some oneshots.
