As I got nothing else to do aka I desperately need to procrastinate, here are some recs to be made.
In the usual style: sorted by fandom and then just by randomness and with words in which I can't explain the awesome.
It's a monster of fic I am still reading and am not afraid to already rec it! Tada, this tornado loves you by smallacts.
Here you get a slightly different and much more detailled backstory of Mike. When you got a bond like he has with Trevor and Jenny, you might not need anything else. But what happens when the highschool days & the easy life and (self-destructive) relationships are over?
summary: A story about first loves and true loves, about friendship, growing up, and growing together. Atlernatively, this is a story about Mike figuring out what he deserves, and learning how to ask for it. (AU)
Eventually it will be Harvey/Mike. (I still haven't got to that!)
Disturbing the Peace by grim_lupine.
Harvey, you need to learn, when there's mutual attraction there's nothing you can do to prevent it!
Continental Drift by rangerdanger / pidgeoned.
Summary says: Mike and Harvey are in a relationship. They just don't know it yet. But still, they're fucking!
Sorry, I can't deny it, this is one of my favourite tropes. Read it!
Or Down You Fall by sam_storyteller.
Wow, I can't remember what it's about, but it has the tag 'torec', so it has to be worth it.
Summary: Drug testing at Pearson Hardman does not have its desired preventative effect. (Sex, drugs, and a little bit of Soul.)
Second, my true love: Inception
The Revolution Will Not Be Civilized by the_ragnarok_d which was started on the kink meme.
It has alpha/omega dynamics, knotting, heats, lactation kink, mpreg and all the stuff. But at the same time politics, a disappointed and hurt by people Arthur, a caring Eames and a revolution. Not to mention all the world-building, characterisation, massive insinuations and implications mentioned in passing.
Even if the above mentioned kinks are not your's (please, lactation, OMG, I can't stand it) I highly recommend to read it, because it's such exquisite writing in a thought-out plot.
Pre-deprivation by withlightning.
The afternoon I realised I might be in love, I read this fic. So my (always subjective) judgement might be slightly compromised.
It's just how I like my Inception fic. Some mature men who won't admit to their feelings but are not afraid to cuddle. Even if it still needs an excuse.
All the same goes for A Series of One Night Stands by cmonkatiekatie. I love fuck buddies turning into feelings. All the ever love for that!
Perfect Symmetry by foxxcub.
Summary: It wasn’t art, only a coping mechanism, something that steadied his mind with its simplicity. or, Arthur draws Eames a lot.
Btw: the prompt on (at?) the kink meme got some brilliant art.
It might be an AU, but still Wait and Know the Coming of a Little Love by maybe77, known on the kink meme as the bully!AU, is an amazing read!
It's an highschoolAU in which Arthur and Eames are neighbours and in a slighty abusive and imbalanced relationship. Basically: Eames has an abusive mother and comes over to Arthur's at night for sex and comfort. In daylight he won't awknowledge to anything.
Quietus has again a slightly different social structure and dynamics.
Even though it's set in the Inception universe as we know it, it has slaves. Here we have slave!Eames with a troubled past who's master is Cobb and works as a forger for them on the run. And then there's Arthur who might slowly fall in love with Eames' character as it was before he was beaten down by slavery.
My description is again insufficient and doesn't come up to it's brilliant worldbuilding.
Note: it's still WIP!
On another note: I am massively disappointed by the delicious fail and won't use it anymore. Diigo is shit as well, so I am niandra_joan @pinboard. Even though I am not much of a fan of the layout. But who can't be in love with the owner, Maciej.
As always, all the love and credit for online dictionaries. What are words? What are languages?
