These are the most popular fanfics in the mob psycho 100 tag on AO3 when filtered by kudos, comments, and what I’ve seen personally in the fandom. All of these are for general or teen and up audiences. None of these fics contain ped/oph///il/ia, in//c/e//st, or ra//p/e.
If you’re new to the fandom and haven’t read any of these yet, they’re a good place to start.

It’s like Reigen’s been waiting for the question. He stops
dead on the pavement, grips Mob by the shoulders, and stares down into his eyes
with an expression as haunted as though every ghost the pair of them has ever
exorcised has taken up residence behind it. “Mob,” he says. “Mob,” he says
again. “Tell me, Mob. Look at me and tell me. Tell me truthfully. Do I look
cursed to you?”
Mob looks at him, and tells him truthfully. “No.”
“Well, you didn’t look very long,” says Reigen. “Let’s just
stand here for a moment, like so, and you can have another look, a nice long
look, and really think about it…”

the same haunted photocopier six days in a row. It must just be a very haunted
Teru agrees to attend a party celebrating his uncle’s full
recovery after a horrific “car accident,” but he’s not excited about
reconnecting with his cousin, Minori, who he recalls is as bad, and likely
worse, as he used to be.
However, he is not expecting to find her trying to turn over
a new leaf in the wake of a traumatic spiritual possession, and in dire need of
a confidant. Fortunately, or perhaps unfortunately, they have more in common
than Teru would like to admit…especially when he realizes that Minori is trying
to track down her mysterious rescuer.
This is a world in which Mob and Reigen’s paths have never crossed, in which 10-year-old Mob found psychic guidance in the form of the aging, retired tv personality Keiji Mogami, in which Reigen followed through on his plans to close the Spirits and Such Agency, in which a cruel twist of Mob’s powers forces him to confront how dangerous he really is.
10 year old Shigeo Kageyama has vanished, his trail instantly cold, and his case gathers dust in police archives as a kidnapping never solved. Four years pass before a chain of events causes his path to cross with that of the despondent, unfulfilled fake-psychic-turned-fake-investigator, Arataka Reigen. Reigen finds himself in over his head caring for an escaped victim of abuse who, for reasons unfathomable, has been taught to believe his very existence is a horrifically dangerous thing…
In the aftermath of the night fighting Claw’s 7th Division,
Mob’s powers return to him. However, something unknown is left behind with
Reigen. Something that doesn’t want to remain there. And someone begins to take
notice of the strange psychic activity coming from the Spirits and Such Consultation
(Or: in which Reigen is saddled with ???%, and things go
poorly for all involved.)

Sifl and Olly. Two sock puppets that had a show between Beavis and
Butthead reruns in the late 90’s. They would sing songs, make phone
calls, sell crappy goods and hang out with this other burnout puppet
named Chester (I’ll draw him later). Haven’t really thought about them
in a long while so I felt like drawing them. They were sock puppets, so
you never saw their feet…so I… drew their feet.
