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.

First: Suits
It's a monster of fic I am still reading and am not afraid to already rec it! Tada, this tornado loves you by [livejournal.com profile] 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 [livejournal.com profile] 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[livejournal.com profile] 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.)
RECCED


Second, my true love: Inception
The Revolution Will Not Be Civilized by [livejournal.com profile] 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 [livejournal.com profile] 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 [livejournal.com profile] cmonkatiekatie. I love fuck buddies turning into feelings. All the ever love for that!

Perfect Symmetry by [livejournal.com profile] 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 [livejournal.com profile] 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!


Third:
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.

Fourth:
As always, all the love and credit for online dictionaries. What are words? What are languages?

Last week I watched all the Suits episodes, this week I fell into it's fandom.

harvey/mike

Pizza And A Movie
by Closer which is an lovely and long AU in which Harvey is still a lawyer and Mike is the pizza guy. Step by step they fall in love. On their way there are movie citations, a sweet friendship, oblivious boys and touching! AND THE WRITING!! I clearly could hear the characters' voices just as they are. So much fun!

Then there's Of Mikes and Men by an anonymous. It's still a WIP but a fantastic fun read with slightly OOCs. The plot starts with a virginal Mike, the helpful friends Donna and Rachel, and a Harvey who's got all the popcorn. The conclusion is obvious.

The Unraveling of Harvey Specter, Attorney at Law by [livejournal.com profile] laughter_now: A super hot & insightful PWP with Harvey at the bottom who's slightly wrong about their relationship status. I intend to stalk this author ;)

I stalk the Suits kink meme as well! Oh god, the long nights of reading in a new fandom!


Another fic with a similar storyline, but in another fandom is Amo, Amas, Amat by [livejournal.com profile] chibirhm, The Eagle, Esca/Marcus, established relationship, some years after the movie. Some thoughts on love.

Another AU I am slightly obsessed with these last days is [livejournal.com profile] awarringtonStraight As An Arc, again The Eagle, currently at Part 6, but the author said it's already complete and the last parts will be posted soon. This is my happy place for now and as you can see it follows the same tropes as the mentioned Pizza And A Movie: AU, straight (?) men, falling obliviously in love. AND SO MANY CUDDLES and smiles when they finally can see each other again!!


But back to Inception:
As we all need a vacation and some love [livejournal.com profile] wldnst gave us Life among Islands whereas Arthur and Ariadne get both in the end. It's Arthur/Eames and Ariadne/Yusuf, an AU, really long and should be savoured with a glass of wine. The writing is brilliant, the subtle humour made me laugh out a lot while reading in the uni library and there are so many wise and insightful words and phrases. Five stars for this!

 

[Bad username or site: recrudescence  @ livejournal.com]posted Tripwire for Team Romance over at the ae-match, inspired by a kink-meme prompt like this: They finally get to bed together and Eames expects a cold, sarcastic, demanding, fidgety partner. It turns out that Arthur is not only responsive, but warm affectionate, and maybe a little shy but totally going to look Eames in the eyes for the whole time. Surprise, Arthur doesn't want to get fucked, he wants to make love. And he insists on cuddling afterwards. - I love awkward sex scenes! 

[livejournal.com profile] 78revolutions' Panicked is currently at part 15, but it seems like it will be finished soo. It's an in-verse take on the aftermath of rape and how to cope the trauma. Lots of angst and hurt, but NO healing cock or the like

A fic which was posted back in June but never left my mind is One in Ten by [livejournal.com profile] pageslave which is summarised with: Silly rom-com AU. It's been a year since Dom broke up, and Arthur is still single. He finally decides it's time to get on with life, and sets himself a mission of going on ten dates, which range from the innocuos to the truly effing horrible. Meanwhile there's a bartender at he new joint down the street whom Arthur just can't seem to get out of his mind.
I LOVE the slightly melancholic atmosphere, the characteristics, the words, the ache.

And finally: toomuchplor wrote a Joe/Tom RPF Unkissed with super hot sex and ALL THE FEELINGS!
