Or something like that.
HEY, I'M NOT DEAD. I have a life and sometimes I don't anything to post about, and so mini-hiatuses are born without me noticing.
NO MORE, HAHA.
Here's a confession: I've been a complete lurker in Inception fandom for the past several months, reading many many MANY Arthur/Eames fics. Because I love Arthur and I love Eames, and I love the idea of them actually taking the pigtail pulling into bed. But not in pigtails, let's not go there (yet).
I want to rec 4 Arthur/Eames fics I've found to be a WONDROUS read, even though I'm the total douchebag kind of lurker who doesn't comment to show love for the writers because I Am Not In Inception Fandom (And No I Don't Want To Write Arthur/Eames Shut Up Shut Up), and therefore, yes, a douchebag.
BUT. FIC RECS:
1. The Case of the Interloper
(Inception/Sherlock BBC; Arthur/Eames, implied Sherlock/John)
You guys. YOU GUYS. THIS IS EVERYTHING YOU'LL EVER WANT OF AN INCEPTION/SHERLOCK CROSSOVER (well, minus the Sherlock/John sex) FIC. It's 3 fics in this universe about how Eames knows John and how he and Arthur need Sherlock's help and YEGADS IT'S SO PERFECT. What I love the MOST about this fic is the author's take on Eames and Arthur as individuals, and then as a couple. IT'S SO PERFECT. And funny and adorable and just slightly disturbing. LOVE IT.
2. Early And Often
(Arthur/Eames, RAHM EMANUEL)
This amazing chick somehow managed to shove RAHM FUCKING EMANUEL into Arthur and Eames' world. Rahm Emanuel, my favoritest rage vomiter after Jensen Ackles. RAHM EMANUEL HAS NO LAMP. RAHM EMANUEL NEEDS MO LAMP. Read the fucking thing, it's short and BRILLIANT. (Gratuitous usage of the word "fucking" in this rec was generously supplied by Rahm Fucking Emanuel For Chicago)
3. I bet Nureyev never had to deal with this shit
(Arthur/Eames, established Cobb/Mal)
I have a thing for AUs, okay? I love reading AUs in every single fandom. And somehow, this AU about Cobb being a ballet choreographer who invited Arthur to be a guest dancer with Eames and Mal, really really works for me. I guess that in my mind, they're all small enough to be dancers (certainly JGL is, and also happens to be an acrobat/ninja/something
irl), and even Eames works in this scenario. It's really long, but it flows wonderfully and it's so full of UST your ears will steam.
4. Untitled (but I call it 'THE WERE-PINEAPPLE FIC OF AWESOME')
THIS FIC. THIS FIC, YOU GUYS. THIS FIC IS ONE OF THE BEST CRACKFICS YOU WILL EVER READ IN YOUR LIFE. It is SO goddamn funny I didn't stop laughing half an hour after finishing it
. It's a ridiculous romp about Arthur and witches and Eames somehow in the mix being all sexy IDEK MY BFF WERE-PINEAPPLE. This fic A SUPERB AMALGAMATION OF AWESOMENESS.
Okay, now I have another confession: I finally listened to Florence And The Machine for the first time about a week ago. AND I CAN'T STOP LISTENING TO HER AND THEM EVER SINCE. You know how you discover this awesome artist and their music fits so well in your playlist, it's like you didn't even know it was missing them? That's how I feel about Florence And The Machine.
I'm embedding her video for "Cosmic Love" because goddamn, this is EVERYTHING I've ever wanted of a female singer/songwriter/fabulous diva in a video of avant-garde romanticism. LOVE. HER.
