Monkey Wrench by Redsliver may fit your request.

I don't know if it qualifies as coming of age or not, considering how the story starts, but I've always enjoyed Deja Vu Ascendancy, by Ascending Author. It's not time travel, but ... there's plenty of those out there.

Here's a good list of do-over stories: http://do-over.wikifoundry.com/

IMO about the best coming of age story on SOL is "Bec" by BarBar. Try the eponymous one first. The fourth one in the series is posting now, it's written quite differently from the first three which are first-person journals.

The most over the top coming of age story is probably "Girl Fag" by rache. It's posted under the pen name God of Porn on SOL.

The most well known coming of age story on the Internet used to be "The Adventures of Me and Martha Jane" http://www.asstr.org/~BitBard/forray/sjr/

The next most well known story on the internet would probably be either "Spitfire and Messerschmidt" or "Tom's Diary" by Gina Marie Wylie.

If you're looking for a _really_ long coming of age story, and don't mind sci-fi why not try "Worm". https://parahumans.wordpress.com/

For something really out there I'd suggest "Harry Potter and the Methods Of Rationality" by Less Wrong http://www.hpmor.com/

Wow, I didn't know that was on SOL. I'll have to track it down so I can add it to my favourites.

If you want this, I have it....

There was also a chapter / scene called Girl Fag interrupted when it was posted under the name of rache. I don't know if that is part of the final 'God of Porn' version or not, as I believe it was in both the original and the amended 'rache' versions, though from what she says, not the Rachael Ross version.

rache Quote:


This scene was largely deleted and the remainder greatly modified for the existing story "Girl Fag" by Rachael Ross and should not be construed to fall anywhere within that storyline. I'm just giving the readers a bit of "deleted scenes" to go with the bloopers (which I left in the story). This is unedited, unproofed, and copied verbatim from the (long presumed lost) original 2003 draft.

You can ad here all stories from Wynter/Trailer park universe

I enjoyed very much when reading all those stories :)

I always love stories of worms coming of age! 'D Do you have any coming-of-age stories for slugs?

Artie's Time of Arrival had one (alien) character as (originally) a 6-ft yellow-and-blue banana slug, relatively young at only about 200yrs.

Ian Rodgers has a couple of novels describing a slime coming of age.

No slug COA stories. How about "The Life Cycle of the Lesser Blue Fairy" by Old Softy? I think that one has pupea. But if your thing is just slugs, the closest I can come is 3d rendering art from a person that goes by "DizzyDills" who you can find by googling that name. A lot of what he does is women in congress with various bizarre looking aliens, some of which are classic tropes like greys, or aliens from popular sci fi movies like "Predator" or "Aliens" but a lot of them are loosely based on various terrestrial insects, pupae, animals, etc. Some of those are vaguely slug-like.
