Rec: Inception

Title: Counting Down To Another Day
Author: [archiveofourown.org profile] recrudescence
Fandom: Inception
Pairing: Arthur/Eames
Summary: It’s not that he trusts Eames completely or anything that ridiculous. It’s just that they’ve worked together before, know each other more than peripherally, and it’s sometimes good to have a familiar face around while Cobb goes even more off the rails and off the grid.

When he wakes up and notices that Eames is gone, Arthur doesn’t think much of it. He takes a tepid shower, checks his email while trying not to be too frustrated with the connection speed, and starts getting ready for the day. It’s nothing but mundane until, of course, Eames walks in on him ironing his trousers, which means he isn’t wearing them.

Arthur clenches the handle of the iron and feels Eames’s eyes taking in the scene, taking in him— frowning there in a crisp white shirt, gray boxer-briefs, stocking feet.

“Sock suspenders,” Eames notes. He doesn’t appear to be making fun of him. “Arthur,” he says, “that is precious.”

This is back when Arthur and Cobb first went on the run...or rather when Cobb went on the run and dragged Arthur with him. I like that mix of newbie yet still totally capable that the author gives us with Arthur. I like how much I can feel all the stuff that Arthur feels, his annoyed frustration, his longing for Eames. He seems so young here, it's sweet.

Personal note: I'm not going to be cross-posting my recs anymore. I'm still going to be following the people I'm following on LJ but my own content is only going to be going on the Dreamwidth site. If you end up following me on Dreamwidth then I'll see you over there and if not then I hope you guys enjoyed a heap of awesome recs from me over the years and tried some fandoms/stories that you might have missed otherwise:)

Title: Wincest drabble
Author: triedunture
Fandom: Supernatural
Pairing: Sam/Dean

Dean checks the knots at Sam's arms, around his ankle, tests the tension in the rough length. Sam's thigh, the one held bent in the air, is quivering, wanting to be free. Funny how your muscles can say one thing, but your dripping cock says another.

Awesome ending.

Title: Lay Down Beside Me (So Still And So Soft)
Author: c_gracewood
Fandom: XMFC
Pairing: Charles/Erik
Summary: A different take on the events of the film.

Erik, however, just touches his mouth with his fingertips and looks at Charles, his face unreadable. After a long, breathless moment, he says quietly, ‘Goodnight,’ and disappears into his own room.

In bed that night, Charles pushes his hot face into the cool cotton pillowcase as he kicks his pyjama bottoms off and slides his hand down his stomach. He’s never wanted anyone quite so much as he wants this man, who’s calm and quiet and deadly, but who tolerates Charles’ proximity and whose two kisses have each left Charles a shivery, aroused mess.

It doesn’t take much to make him come. Just replaying the soft huff of Erik’s breath between their mouths and wondering, if Charles was sucking him off, whether Erik would be quiet – all stifled moans and bitten lips – or if it would completely undo him to the point where he couldn’t stop himself.

This has some wonderfully, deeply sensual scenes. And it raises the problem that one might have when entering into a relationship with a telepathic, you assume that they know everything about you when really, they don't.

Title: A Deeper Season
Author: [archiveofourown.org profile] Etirabys
Fandom: XMFC
Pairing: Erik/Charles
Summary: (nonmutant AU) Charles Xavier- rich, introverted, and academic- begins his senior year of high school in 1962. Erik Lehnsherr, despite his own efforts, is the first person to properly reach out to him. Both are astonished to find a human being on the other side.

"I rather thought you'd like to fuck me with them on, actually." Xavier smiled, and damn him, despite it all- his shakiness, the exhaustion clear in his eyes, the fact that he looked like a drowned cat- it was a good smile. "All my clothes on, against the floor. You wouldn't want me on your bed right now. Come on, professor. Rough and dirty."

The hell of it was that Xavier probably didn't even mean to sound dirty. He knew he'd just sound silly if he tried that, so he went matter-of-fact. And absolutely truthful.

Erik is a professor and Charles is his student but this feels rather different than most teacher/student fics. There's a seriousness to it, a realism, maybe?

Rec: Inception

Title: Jonquil In December
Author: wldnst
Fandom: Inception
Pairing: Arthur/Eames
Summary: arthur and eames tell stories about how they first met. eventually, they tell the truth.

“I have access to a place in Vermont. It would be like a retreat. Team building.”

“We aren’t a team,” Arthur says, looking past Ariadne to the travelers swimming across the terminal behind her, caught in a sea of small black suitcases.

“We aren’t a team like you two aren’t dating,” she says, glancing between Eames and Arthur. “Just because no one ever calls it that doesn’t mean everyone doesn’t know.”

“I think there was a double negative in there somewhere,” Arthur says.

“Arthur used to copy edit,” Eames supplies. They tell Ariadne these things all the time: Eames has a forgery in the Louvre, Arthur worked for Steve Jobs for a year after inception, Eames once shared pot brownies with a Prime Minister. This is the first time in his recent recollection that Eames has said something true.

This is pretty much exactly what the summary says it is. It's years after the events of the movie and everyone is older, which makes everything seem that much *more* somehow. I don't know, I found this strangely moving.

Title: X Marks The Spot
Author: [archiveofourown.org profile] thehoyden
Fandom: XMFC
Pairing: Erik/Charles
Summary: The year is 1962, and Charles Xavier is a professor of archaeology who knows how his students feel, whether he wants to or not. He spends his spare time researching a mythical artifact, but he knows better than anyone that X never, ever marks the spot.

Charles felt a lot less philosophical when Eisenhardt grimly watched him prepare for bed. When he slid into the sheets and said pointedly, “You’re welcome to the guest room next door,” Eisenhardt ignored him entirely and locked the bedroom door before disappearing into the en suite bathroom. He emerged in somber navy pajamas and slid into bed next to Charles as if it were his right.

“What are you doing?” Charles said, aware that he sounded slightly strangled.

Eisenhardt looked unimpressed. “It’s this or I handcuff you to the bed. I’m not letting you out of my sight.”

“And if I prefer the handcuffs?” Charles asked.

Eisenhardt gave him a long, steady look that nearly made Charles squirm. “Go to sleep, Dr. Xavier. We have an early flight.”

Forced bed sharing! Possessiveness! I loved this so hard.

Title: Big Gay Mutant Miracle Baby
Author: [archiveofourown.org profile] listerinezero
Fandom: XMFC
Pairing: Erik/Charles
Summary: Erik is under the mistaken impression that Charles is somehow pregnant, and he's so happy that Charles doesn't have the heart to tell him that the bump he's caressing is just a food baby.

When they landed in Westchester it was already dark, and Erik dragged Charles straight to bed and fucked him silly. Literally - afterwards, Charles could barely do more than wiggle around like a noodle. The entire time, every motion and thought from Erik was laced with love and victory and second chances and family and future and bonding and it was intoxicating. He kept saying things like "It was meant to be" and "This time is going to be different" and as he came he shouted "Our children will rule the world!" which, again, all seemed like weird things to say, but Charles's mind was too melted from arousal to care all that much.

I read this while on hold with the electricity company and I kept desperately hoping that the guy wouldn't come back on the line while I was laughing hysterically:DDD

Podfic: Sickness And Shame Series
Reader: [dreamwidth.org profile] sophinisba
Author: recrudescence
Fandom: Inception
Pairing: Arthur/Eames
Summary: "As promised many moons ago: a coda where Arthur, freshly legal and bearing baked goods, shows up at Eames’s door."

He’s beautiful, in his worn jeans with his shirt riding up his middle, hair a little longer and messier than it was the last time they met, stormy eyes and finely curving lips, and Eames knows the shape of his body beneath those folds of cotton, knows what it feels like to have this boy stripped bare and climaxing under him. He did his best not to think about it even though he’d been doing far more forward things when he was Arthur’s age and younger. He has to hand it to Arthur for daring to show his face at all.

I previously recced the first podfic in this series AND NOW SHE'S RECORDED THE OTHER TWO STORIES. HUZZAH.

There's just so much feeling and loveliness in these stories, plus there's some blink-and-you-miss-it daddy kink in the third part. Yum.

Title: An Ideal Grace
Author: [archiveofourown.org profile] afrocurl and [archiveofourown.org profile] nekosmuse
Fandom: XMFC
Pairing: Erik/Charles
Summary: Erik Lehnsherr is a visiting professor at Columbia University, as well as an acclaimed and award winning poet. Charles Xavier is a lead researcher with the Genetics Department who is well on his way to tenure. But what happens when Charles has to cancel a class because half his students abandon him in favour of a mysterious new English Lit professor? Naturally he ends up sitting in in the class, where Professor Lehnsherr mistakes him for a student. It's really too bad Erik has such a strict policy against dating students. It's also too bad Erik doesn't seem to know how to use Google.

The whole room was watching him now, but Charles barely noticed--he was too busy staring at Lehnsherr, who was watching Charles with something Charles could only hope was open interest. Charles smiled when his rambling came to a stop, a little awkwardly he thought, but it was hard to think under the weight of that gaze.

"Well said, Mr. Charles," Lehnsherr eventually said. He turned back to the room and began expounding on Charles' answer, adding something about Blake's life experiences colouring his perspective--whatever it was it was lost to Charles, Charles noticing then that Lehnsherr talked with his hands.

Oh, God, he had such lovely, lovely hands.

Charles falls for Erik with all the enthusiasm and passion that you could possibly want from him. Watching a damaged Erik try to resist Charles because he thinks he's one of his students is funny and awkward and painful. I couldn't stop reading this until the very end, I was riveted.

Rec: Inception

Title: You Can Be As Loud As The Hell You Want
Author: [archiveofourown.org profile] toomuchplor
Fandom: Inception
Pairing: Arthur/Eames
Summary: Arthur's always listening to someone bang someone else two feet away. Eames thinks he hears a cat.

“Good,” Arthur says tiredly, and burrows back into his pillow, drifting a little as he listens to the quiet sounds of Eames getting ready for bed. He doesn’t know where Eames was coming from for the job, but he’s clearly more than a little weary too, judging by his slow clumsy movements. The light clicks off after another minute and Eames sighs, shuffles under the covers on the other bed, makes little sleepy stretching noises. Silence falls over the room, briefly.

“Is that a cat?” Eames asks, his mattress creaking as he shifts up onto his elbows, the dim silhouette of his cowlick sticking up like it’s expressing his confusion.

“No,” says Arthur, cracking a yawn, “that’s somebody fucking.”

“That’s”— Eames begins, “it’s — what?”

Oh, Eames. You're just such a delicate flower.
