Wow! This fic does
Yes, like every firm believer of Sturgeon’s Law, even I have to admit that not all fanfiction sucks. In fact, of all the fanfiction in the world, a good 10 percent is decidedly non-sucky. Unfortunately, at last check, ten percent of all the Sailor Moon fanfics on fanfiction.net would mean that I’d have to list over 1400 fanfics.
Nope. Ain’t happening. Ever. Don’t even think about asking. And I mean that because there is no way in Hell that I will willingly dig up 1400 urls for you people. Besides, that 10 percent includes the fics that, while not absolute crap, aren’t exactly all that great, either. So, you’ll just have to deal with my list of recommendations. If you think I’ve excluded anything, you’ll either have to email me or deal with it. OR you could put up a competing page and we could start an online rivalry. Fun idea, no? I haven’t had an online rivalry in AGES!
Beginner Fics – Are you new to the Sailor Moon Fandom and not sure which fics to go for? Well, here’s a place to start. These fics – with a few exceptions – aren’t all that long. They aren’t too complicated. And a few of them aren’t all that heavy in plot. Some will really help the beginning fic reader understand the Sailor Moon time-table, from the anime to the manga. Also, this is the section that contains the fluff. You know, the first-season romances and R break-up fics that suck less than the others? The character studies? They’re here.
Darien’s View (or, "Darien's Legitimization of that Fucking Doom Tree Arc") by Jennifer Wand
Jenn Wand's attempt to make the Doom Tree arc of the anime suck less by telling it through Darien's perspective. Don't watch the episodes. Just read the fic. You'll learn all you need to know.
Distant by Greenbeans
Haruka-centric character study. Feel her angst.
First Truths by Lilac Summers
First Season Romance. It has angst. It has humor. It has Mamoru and Usagi making out in the changing room of a lingerie store. What more do you need?

R Season Break-Up fic. Usagi takes matters into her own hands. Causes Mamoru to get really, really drunk.
Highlander Moon by Bill Harris
Remember when I said that The Highlander could be crossed-over with anything? Case in point.

Amusing little fluff piece about candy. As I am a sucker for all things chocolate, it gets a mention.

To Please Her by Patch

Walking On a Thin Line. by Antigone
Yet another first season fic. That does not suck. This time, Luna helps! That wacky cat!
Without Darkness There Can Be No Light by Antigone
What if Usagi died before the creation of Crystal Tokyo?
Well, THIS is on Crack – Mmmm… Crackfic. Feeling silly? Well, this is the place to be because these fanfics are all on serious drugs. Whatever the authors were on when they wrote these? I want some.

Artemis has gotten the short end of the character stick once too often.
Bad Karma by Meara

Watch as Artemis fights to save the world. Go kitty! Go kitty! Kill some Hellcat! It’s your birthday! (The fact that this fic was named after a sex toy is purely intentional.)

Words do not do this justice. Funniest. Series. Ever. It’s primarily authored by Lord Chaos, so that explains a lot.

Sailor Moon: Pain by Jon Carp
The only Sailor Earth fic worth reading. She’s insane! And likes knives!

The Stuff That Doesn't Make Sense by Jon Carp

Fanficcing: HARD CORE – Want serious themes? Disturbing plots? Over 200K of fanfiction sitting in front of your face forcing you to read them until they have fucked with your mind so completely that the only thoughts you will be capable of having after finishing them are “Fire bad; Tree pretty”? They’re right here.
