sext: by jove we are going to own this thing for sure
it’s so terrible figuring out one of ur mutuals unfollowed u and youve still been reblogging shit from them like u 2 still had a thing going on
okay so i was talking with jay about the best fic ever and i decided that i wanted to make a list of the fics that I have literally read and re-read a million times.
they get rec’d a lot but this is mostly just me wanting ppl to read the stuff i enjoy! even if you aren’t in the specific fandom, i think everyone will love most of these fics :)
1. Presque Vu by rageprufrock
→ Fandom: Inception Pairing: Arthur/Eames Rating: Mature Words: 69K
Or, “on the tip of the tongue.” Arthur meets Mal first. He inherits Dom, after. Everything else is on him.
[Notes: This fic is the be all end all fic for me. Every time I think that I’ve hyped it up in my head a re-read proves just how magnificent it is. This fic takes you from pre-film and extends after the end credits, specifically focusing on Mal and why her character is so important. Also lots of brilliantly written Arthur/Eames. If I was a millionaire I’d probably pay rageprufrock to write anything and everything.]
2. I’ve Got Nothing To Do Today But Smile (The Only Living Boy in New York) by gyzym
→ Fandom: Inception Pairing: Arthur/Eames Rating: T+ Words: 19K
Arthur’s a corporate lawyer, Eames owns the coffee shop across the street, and all good love stories start with a quadruple shot latte.
[Notes: Y’all. Arthur/Eames fics are just so good. gyzym is another great multi-fandom writer and she manages to create this incredible coffeeshop/office au hybrid in this fic that gets better every time.]
3. 'Famous Last Words' Series by JenNova
→ Fandom: Teen Wolf Pairing: Stiles/Derek Rating: Explicit Words: 62K
“So,” Stiles says, resting his elbows on his knees and settling his chin in his hands. “Hypothetical then: one of you guys gets dosed with some sex wolfsbane – how do we deal with it?”
[Notes: Bless JenNova for this fic. I have probably read it at least 6 times now and I’ve cried every single time. This is an example of a well developed series that happens over the length of many years, a feat not easily done. It is a great slow burn with lots of angst and pining but don’t worry, there’s definitely a happy ending.]
4. Not In This Land Alone by torakowalski
→ Fandom: Merlin Pairing: Merlin/Arthur Rating: T+ Words: 36K
When Merlin Emrys gets a summer job at Buckingham Palace, he doesn’t expect to even meet King Arthur, let alone become involved in protecting him from a plot to overthrow the monarchy.
[Notes: Okay so this one might not be a “biggie” to some people but this fic just has something that keeps drawing me back. The Merlin fandom probably has the greatest AUs out there and this one is no exception. It’s fun, it’s got magic, it’s got modern day royals, what more can you want?]
5. DILF by twentysomething
→ Fandom: Teen Wolf Pairing: Stiles/Derek Rating: Explicit Words: 30K
"Today is Scott’s first day of kindergarten and Derek is terrified."
[Notes: Maybe kid!fic isn’t everyone’s thing, but it’s definitely 100000% my thing. I’m pretty sure I’m gonna be on my death bed and telling my grandchildren to read ‘DILF’ to me again, just one last time. Everything about this fic is just so cute, it never fails to make me grin stupidly in public.]
6. The Shoebox Project by rave and ladyjaida
→ Fandom: Harry Potter (Marauder’s Era) Pairing: Remus/Sirius Rating: N/A
The Shoebox Project follows the four Marauders and Lily on the summer before their sixth year.
[Notes: If you’ve ever even looked at the Harry Potter fandom from a distance, you’ve probably heard of this fic. It’s a multi-media masterpiece that is a WIP but don’t let that scare you off bc it’s satisfying. This fic is solely responsible for about 95% of my deeply ingrained Marauders emotions. Do yourself a favor and read this if you haven’t. Or read it again if it’s been a while, that’s my plan.]
7. The Student Prince by FayJay
→ Fandom: Merlin Pairing: Merlin/Arthur Rating: Mature Words: 145K
Modern Day Merlin AU set at the University of St. Andrews…
[Notes: You know what, I’ll be the first to admit that this fic isn’t perfect. It’s very long and there are a few lulls and sometimes it feels a little too overdramatic but there’s just something magical about it. It’s a fandom classic for a reason and it’s a great Modern incarnation of the show and the pairing.]
BONUS: Reparations by Sara’s Girl
→ Fandom: Harry Potter Pairing: Draco/Harry Rating: R
Harry is about to discover that the steepest learning curve comes after Healer training, and that second chances can be found in unexpected places.
[Notes: THIS IS FIC IS SO GREAT!!! Especially if you love Draco Malfoy as much as I do. It’s a great future fic that is post-DH and has 86’d the epilogue. There’s also a really great sequel called Foundations. I didn’t include this on the official list bc I still haven’t read any of Maya’s Drarry fics and I feel like I need to do that first.]
[also sorry if a fic u love isn’t on here it maybe in a fandom i don’t read fic for OR maybe i haven’t read it! let me know!!]
technomancy in the age of iphones and paypal apps

I love how they all just accepted and loved on Bruce in this film. He needed them so badly.
