Um... it's been a while since I posted some recs. I don't know, it could be it's just one of these weird phases where I'm not much intofandom. Or reading in general. Or too much RL stuff happening. Or just not that good fic? Do I need to find a new fandom? Where is it?

Anyway Inception fandom definitly has slowed down. We'll see what [livejournal.com profile] inception_bang will bring, which starts on the 27th. Yay! Thereare some great collaborations.

In the end [livejournal.com profile] mementis mission to rec at least one fic every day raised my guilt feelings and here we are. There are some 15 to 20 ficsaved which I wanted to rec at some point. Unfortunately I don't remember every detail about them, so there won't be that much squee(besides which isn't exactly my style anyway).

  • At first I want to rec the fic I took my subject line from: it's [livejournal.com profile] pyrimidine Sort of Revolution. She's one of my favourite authors andI can recommend all of her writings. This one isn't the most recent fic, actially it's from 2010. I think it was posted just right before Ifell into Inception fandom. It captured me because it's a quiet one and oh so well done! We see Arthur and Eames in the beginnings of their relationship, just where you discover the little quirks and habits of your new partner. It's domestic and fluffywhich seldomly attracts my attention for long, but this one is observant, intelligent and from Eames' loving perspective. So lovely!

  • [livejournal.com profile] syllic A Fool From Any Direction is another one I discovered quite late. It's an 21k long (yay!) AU, inspired by this prompt:"Eames is a knight, and Arthur is a stable boy. Eames brings him little tokens from his quests and Arthur reverently removes hisarmor and lets Eames press him down sweetly into the hay". My heart exploded while reading this. So much pining, so muchrestraint, so much loveliness! ALL THE FEELINGS

There was a time I relentlessly read on the kink meme and tracked thousands of prompts! Some of the fic there don't get that muchattention they deserve imho. Here are some of them:

  • Of All the Places in the World is still a WIP and covers one of my beloved tropes, which I discovered not till Inception: werewolfs!!This one takes quite a different approach to the usual alpha/omega dynamics. Here we have omega!Eames who hides his trueself and disguises as an alpha, and beta!Arthur who gets more and more suspicious. New parts are added now and then, so I amstill hopeful it will be finished.

  • this one is just insanely hot! The prompt was this: "While Eames is fucking Arthur, Eames puts him on all fours, tugs him back byhis hair and whispers in his ear, telling Arthur how breathtakingly amazing, fucking fantastic, stunningly gorgeous, absolutelyperfect, devastatingly beautiful, entirely bloody brilliant he is. Is Arthur humbled? Embarrassed? Soaking it up? A complete slut forthe attention? Or all of that at the same time? I don’t care. ;D Just give me Eames obsessively flattering Arthur until he orgasms.Bonus points if Eames usually talks down to Arthur during sex and one night, because Arthur was looking like he needed somelove, he decides to do a complete 180."

I don't know why but it's kinda hard for me to read on fests. Maybe because when it starts there isn't that much fic in the beginning and you need to go back a lot (But my mind is always so distracted!) or you track the whole thing and get a great deal of notifications. I like that [livejournal.com profile] cherrybina often creates a master list. Anyway in autumn 2011 she opened the third round of the fluff meme and 

  • this drabble by [livejournal.com profile] bozothemoos caught my attention. First of all it's inspired by a xkcd comic which message I whole-heartenly approve and enjoyed just that day, and secondly it's a realistic, in verse view of how the relationship of Arthur and Eames might be.

That's it for now!
