I have a few different rec lists, so here is a handy-dandy post linking you to all of them. Be warned, I am a huge fan of smut and almost all of my recs are rated R or NC-17, so if you are looking for lower-rated fics, this is not the place for you. This is also almost exclusively slash pairings, though every once in awhile a het pairing manages to sneak its way in there.

I've recently started dabbling in fanfic writing, so if you're interested, you can find that HERE.

If you are curious about my likes/dislikes/preferences in fic because you want to make me something (or because you're just nosy), you can find those HERE.

I did a lot of reading in random fandoms this past month! Partially because I've been trying to work through some of my "to-read" backlog.

Title: twitter porn doesn't deserve a title
Author: favicon Aja
Pairing(s): Arthur/Eames
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 2,398
Content/Notes: office!sex, desk!sex
Summary: Eames tells eager, subby little Arthur exactly how he'll take it. And then shows him.
This is pretty much the hottest thing ever. That is all.

Title: Don't Think About Elephants
Author: [livejournal.com profile] earlgreytea68
Pairing(s): Arthur/Eames
Rating: R
Word Count: 3,192
Summary: IO, during the watch party today, speculated on whether Cobb had to drive around in Yusuf's dream picking everyone up. Somehow, this is what came of that.
Such a funny and sexy and silly little thing!

Title: A Delicate Art
Author: [livejournal.com profile] earlgreytea68
Pairing(s): Arthur/Eames
Rating: R
Word Count: 3,363
Summary: Four shots of tequila is all it takes to get Arthur drunk.
Such an adorable fic! Drunk Arthur is always a treat, and I really just loved the characterizations here.


Title: The Gentleman is Not for Sale (But He is for Rent)
Author: favicon mongoose_bite
Artist: favicon mizore
Pairing: Harry/Eggsy
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 53,089
Content/Warnings: AU: Modern, AU: Prostitution (sort of), praise!kink, intercrural, light daddy!kink, bottom!eggsy
Summary: When Michelle won the National Lottery, life became slightly easier for Eggsy, but no less complicated. Their new social circle neither likes nor respects them, despite Michelle's best efforts, and for Eggsy the feeling is mutual. Meeting the toffs up close only confirms what he's always suspected; money does not make you a gentleman.
It does, however, allow you to rent one. An Ossan Rental/Reverse Sugar Daddy AU.
Fun and sexy fic! Really enjoyed the role reversal here, with Eggsy having just won the lottery, and Harry as an ex-tailor, turned gentleman-for-hire. Lovely characterizations and the connection between them both was lovely. Plus some great side characters. :)


Title: And No Birds Sing
Author: [livejournal.com profile] omi_ohmy
Pairing: Arthur/Merlin
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 34,783
Content/Warnings: memory loss, amnesia!fic, ambiguous/open ending, canonical major character death, first time, bottom!merlin
Summary: Merlin has been cursed and lives as a hermit, knowing he has lost something, although he cannot remember what. One day he finds a knight, weak and injured, by the lakeside.
Oh goodness, this fic killed me! The writing here is gorgeous, and the longing tone of melancholy is really fabulously done. It's definitely not a fluffy fic, and the ending is not what I would call happy, but the whole thing really is so beautiful and meaningful. It's the kind of fic that will stay with you for a while.


Title: Powder
Author: favicon what_alchemy
Pairing(s): James T. Kirk/Spock
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 4,852
Warnings: sex pollen, sex toys, bottom!kirk
Summary: Kirk gets a face full of sex pollen on an away mission. He’s ready to take matters into his own hands when the object of his secret affections makes an offer of assistance.
Wicked hut sex-pollen fun!


Title: Fascination
Author: favicon kalpurna
Pairing(s): Derek/Stiles
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 3,314
Content/Warnings: underage, first time, bottom!stiles
Summary: Stiles is sitting in English class when the thought first occurs to him. They’ve been talking about the ending of Jane Eyre, and Rochester’s fate, and the concept of disability as punishment, and his mind jumps to Derek ordering him to cut off his arm, and he wonders idly whether the arm would have grown back or, more likely, just healed over the stump immediately, and huh, he thinks with a sudden thrill, huh, there’s no way Derek Hale is circumcised.
Super hot old-school fic with Stiles wondering (fantasizing) if Derek is circumcised, and then getting quite the practical demonstration.

Title: This Started As Only Make Believe
Author: favicon thepsychicclam
Pairing(s): Stiles/Derek, Derek/Jennifer
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 44,197
Content/Warnings: AU: Werewolves Exist, dad!derek, teacher!stiles
Summary: Derek is trying (and failing) to juggle his career, coach lacrosse, and raise his 5 year old werewolf daughter. When he adds his bitter ex-wife and his daughter's slight attachment to him, Derek knows he doesn't have any time for a life of his own - and definitely no time for the super cute daycare teacher.
I do love me some dad!Derek, especially when partnered with awesome teacher!Stiles. :D Rose as Derek's daughter was too adorable, and I really loved the slow development of Stiles and Derek's relationship. Jennifer as the complicated, bitter ex of Derek's added for an interesting twist.

AKA that time when Grace finally discovered how much she loves [livejournal.com profile] earlgreytea68's writing, and decided to work through her entire masterlist. Literally the only author being recced here, but she inspired some serious reading...

Title: The Haunting of 221B Baker Street
Author: [livejournal.com profile] earlgreytea68 | favicon earlgreytea68
Pairing(s): Sherlock/John
Rating: R
Word Count: 10,388
Content/Notes: major character death, ghost!fic, ghost!sherlock
Summary: In which Sherlock Holmes is a ghost.
Really unique fic with Sherlock having actually died after Reichenbach and haunting 221B. Definitely some melancholy themes, but I thought the ending was suitably satisfying.

Title: Working the Edges
Author: [livejournal.com profile] earlgreytea68 | favicon earlgreytea68
Pairing(s): Sherlock/John, background Lestrade/Mycroft
Rating: R
Word Count: 56,089
Content/Notes: AU: Sports, AU: Olympics
Summary: No matter where you put Sherlock and John, they click. Including the Winter Olympics.
Really lovely, charming read. John was aces as a hockey player, and I really liked Sherlock as a figure skater. It definitely felt very much like them, even though they were at the Olympics. Sweet, relatively light read.

Title: Letters Series (5 Fics)
Author: [livejournal.com profile] earlgreytea68 | favicon earlgreytea68
Pairing(s): Sherlock/John
Rating: R
Word Count: 71,463
Content/Notes: implied switching
Summary: While he's dead, Sherlock writes John letters.
Lovely post-Reichenbach series with a gorgeous amount of feels. Adored John and Sherlock's relationship here and how clearly, absolutely in love they were. Some sadder themes, but they were all handled really beautifully.

Title: Saving Sherlock Holmes
Author: [livejournal.com profile] earlgreytea68 | favicon earlgreytea68
Pairing(s): Sherlock/John, background Lestrade/Mycroft
Rating: R
Word Count: 139,494
Content/Notes: AU: Boarding School, AU: Alternate First Meeting, underage
Summary: Sherlock Holmes, schoolboy. Yeah, that basically sums it up.
Wonderful Sherlock AU that takes place when Sherlock is a teenager. This has a very canon feel, but it essentially plays with the idea of, what if Sherlock met John sooner? How would that have changed things for him? I adore the way canon events and characters are incorporated in here, and the relationship between all of the characters is just wonderfully done. Really awesome read!

Title: Baseball Series (4 Fics)
Author: [livejournal.com profile] earlgreytea68 | favicon earlgreytea68
Pairing(s): Sherlock/John
Rating: R
Word Count: 146,072
Content/Notes: AU: Sports
Summary: Sherlock Holmes is a pitcher and John Watson is a catcher. No, no, no, it's a baseball AU.
I was a little skeptical of this one, since baseball is such an American sport, and NOT one I can picture Sherlock playing, but it totally works! The author does a brilliant job with the characterizations, so it really feels like Sherlock and John playing baseball. Fun and charming read that just flew by.

Title: Nature and Nurture Series (6 Fics)
Author: [livejournal.com profile] earlgreytea68 | favicon earlgreytea68
Pairing(s): Sherlock/John, background Lestrade/Mycroft
Rating: R
Word Count: 220,445
Content/Notes: kid!fic, parentlock, babylock, marriage!fic
Summary: The British Government accidentally clones Sherlock Holmes. Which brings a baby to 221B Baker Street.
Oh this is such a lovely series! Little Baby Oliver (aka Clone Sherlock) is too freaking cute, and I just adored the relationship between John and Sherlock. They figure things out relatively quickly, which means we gets lots and lots of awesome domestic, relationship goodness! Sherlock is maybe a smidgen fanon-y, but he was really wonderful in the fic, and seeing him with his new little family was fabulous.

I actually got a ton of fanfic reading done this past past month. Partly due to my plane trip, which gave me an excuse to finally read some long!fic. :D

Title: shine for you
Author: favicon buchanan
Pairing(s): Eric/Jack
Rating: PG-13
Word Count: 3,558
Content/Warnings: established relationship, valentines please! fest 2016
Summary: There are whispers. There have always been whispers. Jack doesn’t hear them, doesn’t care to listen. He goes home to his apartment and climbs into his bed and kisses at Bittle’s shoulder before tucking his knees up behind Bittle’s and exhaling. The sound of Bittle’s soft snoring is better than any noise Deadspin could make.
Really lovely established relationship fic that takes place a few years down the line with Jack thinking about coming out and his future with Bitty.

Title: walk with you through everything
Author: favicon idrilka
Pairing(s): Eric/Jack
Rating: R
Word Count: 6,619
Content/Warnings: established relationship, future!fic, valentines please! fest 2016
Summary: After Jack retires from the NHL, he takes his time to heal, in more ways than one. Bitty is there for him every step of the way.
Really lovely fic that takes place 10 years down the road with Jack getting a career-ending injury. Watching Jack deal with losing hockey was really wonderful, and his relationship with Bitty was too freaking sweet.

Title: the last kick of courage
Author: favicon buchanan
Pairing(s): Eric/Jack
Rating: R
Word Count: 6,765
Content/Warnings: valentines please! fest 2016
Summary: He has to be better than this.
Really lovely Jack-centric fic that starts after winter break his senior year. Loved Jack's head space here and his connection with Bitty was wonderful.


Title: Pining for You
Author: [livejournal.com profile] earlgreytea68
Pairing(s): Arthur/Eames
Rating: R
Word Count: 18,750
Content/Notes: AU: Non-Dreamshare, thief!eames, holiday!fic
Summary: Eames has a pine tree that Arthur really wants. And that is not a euphemism. Well, not *entirely.*
Aww, such a sweet and sexy and silly Christmas read. Arthur and Eames are just fabulous in this and I loved Arthur as a company's point-man and Eames as a thief in hot water. So perfect.

Title: Pumpkin Spice Latte
Author: [livejournal.com profile] earlgreytea68
Pairing(s): Arthur/Eames
Rating: R
Word Count: 20,539
Content/Notes: AU: Non-Dreamshare, AU: High School, AU: Coffee Shop, barista!arthur, underage
Summary: In which Eames is obsessed with pumpkin spice lattes, and Arthur completely misses the point.
Oh, and also there's an egg baby.
Really charming High School AU. I really adored both of their characterizations here. There is some child abuse in this one, but it's fairly minor and well handled.

Title: Lucky Series (2 Fics)
Author: [livejournal.com profile] earlgreytea68
Pairing(s): Arthur/Eames
Rating: R
Word Count: 44,916 total
Content/Notes: kid!fic
Summary: Arthur finds a baby.
Super sweet series with Arthur and Eames finding an abandoned baby after a job-gone-wrong and taking her under their wing. Just a really adorable read.

Title: The One Where They're Stars on HGTV Series (5 Fics)
Author: [livejournal.com profile] earlgreytea68
Pairing(s): Arthur/Eames, past Eames/OMC, background Mal/Cobb, Ariadne/OMC
Rating: R
Word Count: 297,126 total
Content/Notes: AU: Non-Dreamshare, AU: Reality Show, AU: Fusion, HGTV Fusion, mostly established relationship, bottom!arthur
Summary: Have you ever seen "Love It or List It"? In which Arthur is the real estate agent and Eames is the designer.
Okay, so, this series is straight up brilliant. Now, you may not think that nearly 300k or mostly established relationship Arthur/Eames HGTV AU is really necessary, but you would be completely wrong. I love me some home improvement shows, but I don't usually get that invested in the hosts, so I was a little skeptical of this one, but it was wonderfully executed. Arthur and Eames are perfectly characterized here, and Arthur as a real estate agent and Eames as a designer is just amazing. The chemistry and interaction between these two are beyond fabulous, and the whole thing is just SUCH a joy to read. Seriously, I had the biggest smile on my face throughout, and I was laughing out loud almost every other chapter (which is saying a lot). I know it's long, but if you're an Arthur/Eames fan it's totally worth it.


Title: Keep the Car Running Series (5 Fics)
Author: [livejournal.com profile] earlgreytea68 | favicon earlgreytea68
Pairing(s): Arthur/Eames, Sherlock/John, John/Mary, implied Mycroft/Lestrade
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 226,879 total
Content/Notes: AU: Cross-Over, Sherlock cross-over, implied bottom!arthur
Summary: If Mycroft Holmes lived in a world where people could steal information from the subconsciouses of others, tell me he wouldn't be all over that when he had Moriarty in custody.
Super fascinating and well crafted verse that crosses over the Inception and Sherlock fandoms. The world blending is masterfully done, and it all feels very natural and believable. On top of that, we get a wonderfully interesting and creepy premise, and fabulous characterizations. Arthur and Eames are particularly spectacular here. The first fic focuses on Arthur/Eames with some John/Sherlock pre-slash action. The fourth fic focuses on Sherlock/John (with some established Arthur/Eames) and I really loved how the season three events were incorporated. I really recommend reading them in order, as there are definitely a lot of references back to the first fic. There's a super satisfying epilogue fic for Arthur/Eames, and I believe there is a Sherlock/John one coming as well, though the series reads beautifully as is.


Title: An Early Start
Author: favicon HiddenKitty
Pairing: Bilbo/Thorin, Kíli/Tauriel
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 44,436
Notes: AU: Thorin Lives, first time, bottom!bilbo, outdoors!sex, implied switching
Summary: Everyone knows they were doing it all along, right?.
Really sexy and enjoyable read that takes place after the end of the first movie and carries through the movies and beyond (with a much happier ending!) Loved the connection between Bilbo and Thorin here and there were some seriously hot scenes! Gets a bit exposition-y in some parts, but overall a fun read.


Title: Feel a Little Warmer
Author: favicon blacktofade
Pairing: Harry/Eggsy
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 3,077
Content/Warnings: AU: Harry Lives, established relationship, recreational drug use, shotgunning, bottom!eggsy
Summary: Eggsy has never been much good at coping around Christmas time. Harry helps take his mind off it.
Super hot fic with shotgunning and riding and a really sweet relationship between Eggsy and Harry.

Title: the things we steal (it was only a kiss)
Author: favicon DivineProjectZero
Pairing: Harry/Eggsy
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 5,738
Content/Warnings: AU: Crossover, Harry Potter crossover, professor!harry, auror!eggsy, identity porn
Summary: Eggsy whips around to find Harry Hart standing right behind him, holding a martini glass and just as gorgeous as Eggsy last saw him, three years and two months ago.
Thankfully, Eggsy is too busy staring in shock to actually say anything in response, because Harry then says, "Excuse my poor manners. Harry Hart. And you are?" And then extends his hand, which is how Eggsy remembers that he's not supposed to be Eggsy Unwin right now; he's actually undercover.
Awesome Harry Potter AU with Harry as Eggsy's old DADA professor and Eggsy running into him while undercover. Loved the feelings here and the whole thing was super sweet.


Title: Run Away With Me
Author: [livejournal.com profile] noeon
Pairing: Adam/Ronan
Rating: R
Word Count: 1,570
Summary: When Ronan finds Adam in Cabeswater, he doesn't know whether to worry that it's real or a dream. Which would be worse?
Really beautiful, lyrical fic of Adam and Ronan coming together in a not-quite-a-dream.


Title: bad habits (i do em all for you)
Author: favicon nymphe
Pairing(s): Derek/Stiles
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 4,851
Content/Warnings: sex toys, underage, first time, rimming
Summary: wherein: stiles is sexually frustrated, stiles gets a vibrator stuck in his ass, stiles calls derek to help him with it, there's some kink discovery, a few orgasms, and some feelings. yep, that's about it.
Because I will never get tired of the "I got a vibrator stuck up my ass and need to call my crush to help get it out" trope. Super fun and super hot.

Title: My Longing Drives Me Crazy For You
Author: favicon secondstar
Pairing(s): Stiles/Derek, mention of past Stiles/OMC
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 5,820
Warnings: alpha/beta/omega dynamics, omega!stiles, werewolf!stiles, heat cyvles, self-lubrication, bottom!stiles, rimming, felching, sex toys, secret snowflake 2015
Summary: It's been years since Stiles talked to Derek, but he didn't have anyone else to turn to.
Super cool fic that incorporates some of the a/b/o aspects into the canon world. Fun read and unbelievably hot!

Title: King of the Road
Author: [livejournal.com profile] stoney321 | favicon Stoney
Pairing(s): Stiles/Derek
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 30,446
Warnings: AU: Human, switching, bottom!stiles, mostly bottom!derek, rimming, first time, road trips, semi-public!sex, bathroom!sex
Summary: Derek sees the guy--all long lines, furtive glances, hungry--leaning against the diner out in the middle of nowhere. Yeah, Derek's hungry, too.
Wonderful human AU with drifter!Derek and hobo!Stiles. Great connection and banter between the two of them, and the whole thing is super hot. The ending was maybe a little rushed, but it was a fun and overall satisfying read.

I was sick at the beginning of the month, which mean I had two days with nothing to do but read fic! I took the opportunity to finally read a few of the fics that had been on my to-read list for ages. It was both wonderful and immensely satisfying! Here are some of my favorites from the month in a bunch of different fandoms. :D

rectober banner 4
banner by [livejournal.com profile] nerak_rose


Title: All It Does Is Rain Series (2 Fics)
Author: [livejournal.com profile] theladyingrey42 | favicon theladyingrey42
Pairings: Steve/Tony
Rating: NC-17 overall
Word Count: 19,909 total
Content/Notes first time, bottom!steve
Summary: In which the Avengers rebuild their home, superheroes are more than just the things that made them super, and communication is hard.
Sweet little series with a wonderful Steve and Tony. I liked that the two fics are from different POVs, so we really get inside the character's heads. Great characterizations, and a lovely connection between these two.


Title: A Cure For Boredom
Author: favicon emmagrant01
Pairing: Sherlock/John, John/OMC, John/OFC, John/OFC/OFC, John/OMC/OFC (Please note that Sherlock is present for all of the interactions between John and the OCs)
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 81,665
Content/Warnings: switching, bottom!john, bottom!sherlock, light D/s, dom!sherlock, sub!john, threesome (m/m/f and f/m/f), light bondage, blindfolds, first time, sort of open relationship, rimming, dirty talk, double penetration (female), voyeurism, exhibitionism, public!sex
Summary: They'd never talked about sex in the year they'd known each other. Well, that wasn't quite correct: Sherlock had never said a word about sex; John had bemoaned his personal dearth of it on many occasions.
I must say that I'm normally not a big fan of threesome/polyamory/open relationship type fics, so I was really unsure bout this one going into it. But, like everybody had assured me, it was brilliant. This is quite *my* Sherlock and John, but I loved them nonetheless. I adored the relationship between Sherlock and John here, the love and trust, and fear and uncertainty of the other's feelings. The sex scenes were smoking hot, but even hotter was how in control of everything Sherlock was. Even though most of the fic is John getting off with other people, Sherlock is an undeniable presence throughout the fic. I thought the ending was great, and very fitting for this Sherlock and John.


Title: Superman For Sale
Author: favicon dm_wyatt
Pairing(s): Clark/Lex, mention of past Clark/OMC and Clark/Lois
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 80,830
Content/Notes: post-rift, future!fic, magic, dub-con, bonding!fic, bottom!clark
Summary: Clark goes missing and Lex tries to figure out why. He ends up "buying" Superman from a kidnapper, who had put him under a spell... Things don't go quite as planned.
Really interesting read! Definitely a little mushy in places and not always the most sophisticated, but I really enjoyed the plot, and I loved Clark and Lex's connection.


Title: Our Days of Blood and Sunset
Author: [livejournal.com profile] aldiara | favicon aldiara
Pairing: Agron/Nasir
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 11,130
Content/Warnings: established relationship, bottom!nasir, disability!fic (sort of)
Summary: Nasir knows he should not be angry at someone he’d thought lost forever, someone he loves this much who has been hurt this badly; but he can’t help it, either.
Really beautifully written fic that deals with Nasir's understandably complex feelings about Agron's unexpected return from the dead. It all felt so realistic and believable, and it was really wonderful watching both Nasir and Agron deal with the aftermath of Agron's decision, and seeing them work their way back together.

Title: steal me and shield me (Part 7 of the Of Magic and Monsters Series)
Author: favicon venomedveins
Pairing: Agron/Nasir, other background/past pairings
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 22,051 of 155,638 total
Content/Warnings: AU: Fairy Tale & Fantasy, creature!fic, magic!nasir, werewolf!agron, arranged marriage, rough sex, bottom!nasir, MPREG
Summary: Agron and Nasir are in a race against time as the Wolf Festival approaches and Gerulf's plan begins to be revealed.
Wonderful addition! I liked seeing the Geroff thread wrapped up, but given the introduction of the"Roman" vampires, there is still plenty more to overcome! Super hot, and I adored all of the lovely Nagron moments.

Several months ago I started thinking about my favorite fanfics. Obviously my rec lists are basically just lists of my favorite fics, but even among those, I have my favorites. The ones I read again and again, the ones I read when I need comfort, or want to feel some gut-punch feels, or want to roll around in the meant-to-be love. I decided that it was necessary to come up with a list of my most favorite of fics across all of the fandoms I read in. This was poor decision on my part. Six months later and I've finally finished, and narrowing things down was a bit more harrowing than anticipated. I ended up with almost as many fics on the honorable mentions list as I did on the Actual list, but some things can't be helped. I figured getting this up for Rectober was an admirable goal, and I'm happy I managed to get this done.

The more I've read in a fandom, the more difficult it was to narrow down, so I had an especially hard time with Harry Potter and Teen Wolf in particular. I tried to narrow it down by only letting myself chose one from a category (one creature!fic, one post-hogwarts era, etc). It was hard. Also, keep in mind that these are 100% personal opinion and totally subjective. I like what I like.

So, here they are, Grace's 25 most-favorite fics! AKA What I would bring to read on a desert island. :D

I was still on a bit of a Sherlock kick at the beginning of this month.

I love this pairing, and it's a pretty big fandom, so there is a ton of fic out there. But it's honestly a bit overwhelming, especially for a more "casual" reader. It seems like I have to get a bit obsessed, in order to weed through all the mounds of fic to find out which ones are the gems.

Unfortunately, I'm waaay too busy with H/D and Sterek to commit to another full-time obsession. I know there is just a ton of great Johnlock stuff I've yet to read, but hopefully I'll get there someday.

(and if you guys have any recs for me....)

I've been reading ALL about "The Johnlock Conspiracy" theory (TJLC) on tumblr and WOW are people thorough! For those of you who aren't familiar, TJLC is basically the idea that the writers of BBC Sherlock have written the entire show with the idea that eventually John and Sherlock will become a canon romantic pairing. And people have come up with a TON of analysis supporting this argument. Not sure if I necessarily believe it, but it's so interesting reading about everybody's ideas. If your interested deducingbbcsherlock on tumblr has written a ton of metas on the subject, and this one is a great place to start for an overview of why TJLCers believe Johnlock will become canon.

Either way, reading about it put me in a Sherlock mood, so I had to scamper off and find some good fic to read! And I found enough excellent ones for the fandom to warrant it's very own rectober post! :D

I was reading all over the place this month. Just a few fics here and there spread across many fandoms. Though the majority of my time has been devoted to [livejournal.com profile] hd_tropes (I think I only have 2 or 3 lefts to read!) and indulging in my new Kirk/Spock Star Trek obsession. :D

I re-watched Inception last month and I remember how popular the Arther/Eames ship was awhile ago, so I figured I'd give it a go. I've pretty much been obsessed ever since. There are some awesome fics in this fandom and here are my favorites!

This is a list of all of my Inception Canon Recs aka fics that generally take place in the canon world.

In the Content/Warnings section of each entry I have different tags, so if you are looking for something specific (like "established relationship" for example) just ctrl+f and enter your tag and it should highlight the relevant entries!

Summary: There was a note on Arthur's desk earlier today, featuring a time, an address, and a rather careless drawing of a fire extinguisher. The address wasn't anywhere Arthur knew and the writing was unfamiliar. It was the fire extinguisher that signified what this meant.

Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 3,346
Content/Notes: underage, first time, bottom!arthur, age difference, inception kink fest
Summary: Some new formula causes Arthur to turn into a sixteen-year-old. He's overwhelmed with hormones and completely horny all the time. Eames feels like a dirty old man because OMG IT IS KIND OF HOT, but tries to keep business as usual. And then Yusuf suggests Arthur will have to lose his virginity in order to turn back into an adult. Well, Eames isn't comfortable with Arthur having sex "for the first time" WITH RANDOM DUDES, so he graciously volunteers.

Pairing(s): Arthur/Eames
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 3,628
Content/Notes: bottom!arthur
Summary: Many people, Eames would find out later, assumed Eames had wanted Arthur from the moment they'd met. It was true Arthur was devestatingly attractive, but in all honesty, the first thing Eames had thought when he'd met Arthur was, Why did Cobb bring his son? (Or: It's all about trust.)
Sweet and sexy fic that covers their first meeting and then the Fisher job and what happens after.

Super hot role play- loved the student uniform kink!

Word Count: 6,207
Content/Notes: rimming, dirty talk, tattoo!kink, bottom!arthur
Summary: It was all going so well until Eames took a bullet in a bar fight, fired back, and promptly took another.
This came about thanks to platina, who wanted Arthur with a tramp stamp.

Pairing(s): Arthur/Eames
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 7,135
Content/Notes: rimming, bottom!arthur, beard!kink, public!sex
Summary: Eames would gladly welcome comparisons to other dashing bearded men, but Eames rarely gets what he wants when it comes to Arthur.
Loved the beard!kink in this one and it was surprisingly low on the angst-factor, which is a nice change of pace from a lot of arthur/eames fics.

Pairing(s): Arthur/Eames
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 7,365
Content/Notes: size!kink, [livejournal.com profile] i_reversebang 2016
Summary: None of this would have happened if Eames would have just shown him the fucking tattoos.
Super hot fic with Arthur being obsessed with Eames and his tattoos, and deciding to PASIV Eames out of his system. Which, of course, doesn't go quite according to plan--not that Arthur ends up minding!

Title: How Do You Talk to a Point Man
Author: [livejournal.com profile] eleveninches | favicon eleveninches
Pairing(s): Arthur/Eames
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 7,796
Content/Notes: bottom!arthur
Summary: After all this time, Arthur has too much pride to simply ask Eames to have sex with him. A story in which the job isn't always glamourous, Cobb thinks Arthur makes poor life decisions, and Eames steals everything (including, maybe, Arthur's heart).
Definitely not at all of dub-cony as the summary/prompt makes it sound. Super hot with an adorably awkward Arthur.

Title: Any Eventuality
Author: [livejournal.com profile] starlingthefool | favicon Starlingthefool
Pairing(s): Arthur/Eames
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 8,049
Content/Warnings: BDSM, D/s, dom!arthur, sub!eames, bottom!arthur, bondage, belting, inception reverse bang
Summary: People assume that Eames likes to be in perfect control of everything: how he presents himself to the world, how others see him, how an extraction goes down. That's true, mostly. Sometimes. The reality is more complicated. A story in which Eames is a sub who doesn't like to be penetrated, and Arthur is a dom that really, really does.
Really sexy fic with a fabulous dynamic between Arthur and Eames. I loved the twist on the D/s role here.

Title: The Sweetest Downfall
Author: [livejournal.com profile] toomuchplor | favicon toomuchplor
Pairing(s): Arthur/Eames
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 8,363
Content/Notes: bottom!arthur, tattoo!kink
Summary: Eames had long since thought of Arthur’s hair as permanently gelled into obedience. He’d had no earthly idea how – how wanton it could be, curving and wet at the tips and softening Arthur’s whole face.
Loved Eames' obsession with Arthur's hair and Arthur's characterization especially was great. Plus, some smoking' sex.

Title: Counting Down to Another Day
Author: [livejournal.com profile] recrudescence | favicon recrudescence
Pairing(s): Arthur/Eames
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 12,801
Content/Notes: switching, bottom!eames, bottom!arthur, dream holiday 2011
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.
Wonderful pre-canon fic with a slow simmering build and a sweet, hopeful ending.

Title: and the doors are open
Author: [livejournal.com profile] guns_and_butter | favicon gunsandbutter
Pairing(s): Arthur/Eames, brief Eames/OC
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 14,880

Word Count: 23,943
Content/Notes: mile high club, airplane!sex, bottom!arthur
Summary: Arthur joins the mile high club, Cobb joins the broken hearts club, Eames joins the smug extractors' club, and Yusuf just wants to club everyone. Or, Eames steals Cobb's point man. // Sequel to Don't Fall in Love with a Dreamer. Cobb needs a place to crash; Eames is unhappy.
Sweet and funny and dead sexy. Relatively light disc with a lovely relationship between Arthur and Eames and a great Cobb on the side.

Title: this just might hurt a little
Author: [livejournal.com profile] guns_and_butter | favicon gunsandbutter
Pairing(s): Arthur/Eames, past Arthur/OMC
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 24,056
Content/Notes: D/s, dom!eames, sub!arthur, bottom!arthur, aftercare, praise!kink, past abusive D/s relationship (not A/E)
Summary: You'll never know what you're missing till you try.
Hot and believable D/s fic. Really liked how the trust and their relationship evolved, especially with Arthur's previously bad experiences.

Pairing(s): Arthur/Eames, Cobb/Mal
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 25,382
Content/Notes: BDSM, D/s, bottom!arthur, implied switching, dom!eames, sub!arthur, sex toys, light bondage, blindfolds, flogging, electricity play, inception kink
Summary: In part one, Eames forges Satan, and carries hints of this over topside. Arthur gets caught up in it, leading to a d/s scene that both unexpectedly enjoy, though feel guilty about afterwards. In the second part, Arthur comes back for more.
Really interesting concept of Eames' forges staying with him for a bit after a job, and it leads to some super hot D/s and some great relationship development between Arthur and Eames.

Title: The Material Life of the Californian Suburb
Author: [livejournal.com profile] eleveninches | favicon eleveninches
Pairing(s): Arthur/Eames
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 35,756
Content/Notes: bottom!arthur, inception big bang 2012
Summary: Arthur seduces Eames into good.
This fic takes place before, during, and after the movie with such a lovely spin on their relationship. Practically angst-free with awesome lesbian!Ariadne and the whole gang slowly getting out of the illegal Dreamshare business. Adorable and sweet with some super hot sexy times.

Title: Pavlov's Bell Series (5 Fics)
Author: [livejournal.com profile] whiskyrunner | favicon Whisky
Pairing(s): Arthur/Eames
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 64,700
Content/Notes: creature!fic, werewolf!eames, catboy!arthur, knotting, mates, MPREG, rimming, felching, heat cycles, first time
Summary: It doesn't surprise Arthur when he hears, eventually, that they've developed a reputation for fighting like cats and dogs—since, in a sense, they are those things. AKA, the verse where catboys and werewolves collide.
I honestly haven't read very many catboy fics in any fandom that I've really loved, but this one was great, especially with the addition of werewolf!eames and all the sexy differences and animosity turned love.

Title: Inception: Origins 'verse (Military Backstory) (4 Fics)

Pairing(s): Arthur/Eames
Rating: NC-17 overall
Word Count: 67,113 total
Content/Notes: dirty talk, bottom!arthur, road trip
Summary: Exploring Arthur and Eames' backstory in the military where they each lead an elite unit in the dream-sharing trials. The Powers That Be would prefer to keep the participants in the dark, but Arthur and Eames find each other, fall in love, and change dream-sharing forever.
God I really just love this verse and I wish I had so much more of it! I really loved the interpretation of how Arthur and Eames could have originally met, and how their relationship progressed. Seriously such a fantastic connection between them here and a great mix of pre and post canon. The OC's are really great and the sex is crazy hot! :D

Title: Wherever You Will Be (That's Where I'll Call Home) [The DomesticVerse] (8 Fics)

Pairing(s): Arthur/Eames, Ariadne/Yusuf
Rating: NC-17 Overall
Word Count: 74,828 total
Content/Notes: bottom!arthur, dirty talk, rimming, car!sex
Summary: People you kiss in an airport baggage claim and then don't talk to for thirteen months shouldn't be able to exist, let alone make your chest do the things Arthur's chest is doing. There are rules.
God this series is just my favorite. So happy and lovely and sexy and I just had the biggest smile on my face while reading it. Their relationship is just so freaking beautiful and really loved how present the rest of the team was.

Super sweet series with Arthur and Eames finding an abandoned baby after a job-gone-wrong and taking her under their wing. Just a really adorable read.

Title: Keep the Car Running Series (5 Fics)
Author: [livejournal.com profile] earlgreytea68
Pairing(s): Arthur/Eames, Sherlock/John, John/Mary, implied Mycroft/Lestrade
Rating: R
Word Count: 226,879 total
Content/Notes: AU: Crossover, Sherlock crossover, implied bottom!arthur
Summary: If Mycroft Holmes lived in a world where people could steal information from the subconsciouses of others, tell me he wouldn't be all over that when he had Moriarty in custody.
Super fascinating and well crafted verse that crosses over the Inception and Sherlock fandoms. The world blending is masterfully done, and it all feels very natural and believable. On top of that, we get a wonderfully interesting and creepy premise, and fabulous characterizations. Arthur and Eames are particularly spectacular here. The first fic focuses on Arthur/Eames with some John/Sherlock pre-slash action. The fourth fic focuses on Sherlock/John (with some established Arthur/Eames) and I really loved how the season three events were incorporated. I really recommend reading them in order, as there are definitely a lot of references back to the first fic. There's a super satisfying epilogue fic for Arthur/Eames, and I believe there is a Sherlock/John one coming as well, though the series reads beautifully as is.

Still have not finished with Season 3 and it's driving me crazy. My roommate and I agreed to watch it together, but we have been so busy lately that we are never together long enough to watch it. But we are going to watch 3.02 today if it kills me!

Anyways, here are some of my favorite fics I read this month to get my Sherlock fix. I know this recs list is pretty much an ode to BeautifulFiction, but I read one of her stories and it was so fantastic that I basically binge read all of her Johnlock fics. I'm not sorry.

So I've been trying to do monthly rec posts for Harry Potter and Teen Wolf, since those are the fandoms I am pretty active in. But I do dabble in other fandoms, so if I read a fic that I want to add to my master rec-list, I'll probably just do I quick post as well. :)
