Day 13

In your own space, share a favorite piece of original canon (a TV episode, a song, a favourite interview, a book) and explain why you love it so much. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.

Oh, god. So, SO many. For H50 alone, the list would fill up an entire post limit. Where do I even start. THE CARGUMENTS. The suspects-in-shark-tanks. STEVE'S MF FACES. The entirety of 1.21. In fact, almost the entire first season.

For Inception, again, where do I even start. "Eames, I am impressed."/"Your condescention, as always, is much appreciated, Arthur. Thank you." "Eames!!"/Eames shoots the fuck out of some militarised projections./"You okay??"/"Yeah, yeah, I'm fine." "You mustn't be afraid to dream a little bigger, darling." [Emphasis my own, natch] "Go to sleep, Mr Eames." NEED I GO ON, I ASK YOU.

For Clint/Phil, I mean, the entire what, two minutes of screen space they don't even share, I MEAN, "Barton, talk to me."/"You want me to slow him down, sir? Or are you sending in more guys for him to beat up?"/"I'll let you know." [Emphasis my own] What is probably scary is that I am typing this up from memory alone, that's how often I have re-re-re-watched that scene. Banter. Mutual respect. Phil acknowledging the banter/snark. NEITHER OF THEM BATS AN EYELID, WHICH MEANS THAT THIS KIND OF THING HAPPENS A LOT BETWEEN THEM. I just, I love fandom, you know? The connection between them is so clear in those scant seconds that it has spawned an entire ship based on nothing more than snarky BAMFs being BAMFs together. <333

Oh god, okay, I'm going to have to stop now otherwise this will be a post of INCOHERENT SQUEE and my utter LOVE for allllll the things. /0\

Day 14

In your own space, ask for help. Need a beta? Always wanted to learn how to make a vid? a fanmix? icons? Maybe you’d want to have someone cheering for you while you work on an upcoming big bang or fannish bingo? Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.

I would not say no to a very simple idiot's guide to podfic making. BECAUSE CLEARLY I DO NOT HAVE ENOUGH THINGS ON, FANDOM-WISE, AT THE MOMENT. /0\ /0\ I don't even know if people will want to listen to me reading shit, but hey.

But really, I am so, so lucky that right now I actually don't need any help with anything. I have a few people who have the misfortune to be my go-to betas, and/or squee-at-ers, and/or dreadful enablers, and/or cheerleaders, and/or plot-bunny-wranglers. I am a lucky, lucky person, AND I LOVE YOU ALL FOR IT, YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE. <3333333

I would like to take this opportunity to thank [ profile] delicatale, for at one point or another being all of these combined, including feeding my Jeremy Renner obsession on a regular basis. And in turn, I WOULD LIKE TO SHARE THE PRETTY. BECAUSE I KNOW FOR A FACT THAT I AM NOT ALONE IN SAID OBSESSION, Y/Y/MFY? XDDDD SO BEHOLD THE MAN HIMSELF IN ALL HIS GLORY AND HOLD ON TO YOUR PANTIES BECAUSE UNGHHHHHHHHHHH. (I actually can't make myself put this one under a cut. HE IS TOO PRETTY TO EVER BE HIDDEN UNDER A CUT EVER.)

All right, I am going to use all this AWAKE I have found myself with after eleven hours of sleep last night to get caught up on this.

Day 10

In your own space, talk about a creator. Show us why you think they are amazing. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.

My flist is awesome )

Day 11

In your own space, ask for recs. Something as simple as "I like XYZ (where XYZ is a kink, a pairing, a trope, etc) - please rec me some." Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.

I want candy )

Day 12

In your own space, rec at least three fanworks that you think would make a good intro into XYZ fandom. Rec a fandom overview, a introductory picspam, stories that define and shape the fandom. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.

Oooooh shiny! )

Title: They say there's a doorway from heart to heart
Pairing: Arthur/Eames
Rating: NC-17
Word count: ~7,000
Warnings: Amnesia fic. So I don't spoil those who don’t want to be spoiled, for the more sappy readers (like me), highlight to read:
Ambiguous ending in re: regaining memory, but a happy ending in re: Arthur/Eames.
Summary: Of all the pubs in all of England, the handsome stranger has to walk into Joe's. Funny thing is, even if his mind is drawing a blank, Joe's body tells him he ought to know this one.
Author's Notes: Title from a quote by Rumi. Extra special thanks to my SuperBeta [ profile] zolac_no_miko for fantastic nit-picking and niggling at this until it made sense. I truly hope you like it, [ profile] hungerpunch! You asked for something that wrenches the heart a bit but then fluffs it up and makes it better by the end. Here's hoping I have delivered!

Warnings: A smidgeon of angst, more fluff thank you can shake a stick at.
Summary: Arthur meets a far-too-appealing stranger when he brings a foundling kitten to Arthur's pet store. This is their story. Or, as [ profile] zolac_no_miko said to me, [It] is all gerbils and pigtails and fluttering hearts.
Notes: This story has been just amazing to write! I want to give out a huge thanks to everyone who commented and cheered this on -- you made it so incredibly rewarding to think up and write! And [ profile] red_rahl -- I LOVE YOU SO MUCH, DARLING. Title from The Cure's Lovecats.

Her boundless enthusiasm is like a ray of sunlight through the clouds, and I am delighted to be able to show my appreciation! <3 Sequel to Darling Buds of May, but can be read as a standalone.

Ahem. What [ profile] red_rahl gone and done is draw a chibi chef!Arthur and helper!Eames, to compliment our Love in the time of Marmite story -- because I asked for magical-chef!Arthut, and because SHE'S BRILLIANT LIKE THAT. AND I AM JUST UTTERLY OVERWHELMED BY THE SHEER AMOUNT OF BIG PINK LOVE I FEEL FOR IT, AND HER. /FLAILFLAILFLAIL/

ETA: I should probably have said, we're sharing it with all the other utterly marvellous cooking stories out there, BUT I'm all about the sharing, because each and every one of them deserves all the love in the world! <3333333

Disclaimer: Definitely not mine. They belong to Chris Nolan, but bless him for giving them to the world!
Warnings: none, really
Summary: When Arthur agrees to help out a desperate customer at the last minute, he has no idea what he's getting himself into. But then that's Eames for you. If only Eames would stop trying to trick his name out of him, everything would be right with the world.
Author’s Notes: Written for [ profile] distracterisey, for her generous donation to [ profile] help_japan. Thank you, darling! Her prompt was florist!Arthur/recurring customer!Eames, which I was all over once I read it! You've been an absolure star, love, and I hope you enjoy this as much as I enjoyed writing it; it's as light and silly as promised! <3 Thanks as always to SuperBeta [ profile] zolac_no_miko for her sharp eye and unfailing support! <3

Rating: PG-13
Word Count: ~2,800
Disclaimer: Definitely not mine. They belong to Chris Nolan, but bless him for giving them to the world!
Warnings: angst, third person viewpoint, allusions to violence, epistolary fic.
Summary: It’s weird, how someone she’s never met, never will meet, likely, feels closer to her than her own mother; how the voice of a stranger has become so important to her that it can lift or sink her, fill her with trepidation for their safety and well-being, make her feel a part of something bigger than herself.
Author’s Notes: Written for [ profile] fred_bear, for her generous donation to [ profile] help_japan. Thank you, darling! Her prompt was Set Fire To The Third Bar (lyrics here). This is a story about longing, and not so patient waiting, but mostly about what it means to be in love. Very experimental, first time I've written third-person-viewpoint. Thanks and half of my soul as always go to [ profile] zolac_no_miko for her unending, relentless support and a most helpful sharp eye! [ profile] fred_bear, you have been a sweetheart and so very patient. I just hope this is at least a little like what you were hoping for! ♥ The user account I've made up is completely fictitious. There might very well be someone with that username out there, but it sadly won't be Eames!

Fic Title: The cunning artifices of the wearer
Pairing(s): Arthur/Eames
Rating: R
Word Count: ~4,300
Warnings: suit!porn

Summary: Arthur is not a petty kind of guy, he really isn't -- but a bet's a bet, and he can't wait to see Eames' gorgeous body draped to its every advantage. Besides, it would be a shame for all his beautiful choices to go to waste. He is not at all prepared for the way Eames takes to the experience.

Notes: [ profile] emlyn2, you have been a joy to write for! I've been meaning to take a forray in the depths of suit!porn, and this gave me the most perfect excuse! Thank you as always to my SuperBeta, [ profile] zolac_no_miko. Special thanks go to [ profile] hackthis and [ profile] bennet_7 for compiling and posting the How to Dress Your Man/Character: An Informal Tutorial and Costumes in Inception for the use of us writers.

Title: Not Shy of a Spark
Gift From: [ profile] sirona_gs
Gift For: [ profile] vvu
Rating: PG-13
Warning(s): canon character death, descriptions of a dead body and a crime scene (no blood or gore, though, nothing too graphic)
Word Count: ~6,600
Summary: Noir AU. PI Arthur Lake gets called out to what he thinks is a routine case to help out a friend; things get a lot more complicated when he finds out who the victim is and meets William Eames, the person who found the body.
Author Notes: [ profile] vvu asked for a Noir AU, with Eames as a conman/thief and Arthur as an uptight detective/policeman. Title comes from "505" by Arctic Monkeys, which is one of my favourite Arthur/Eames songs out there. Massive kudos to Raymond Chandler, whom I tapped for inspiration while I was writing this, and a huge thank you to my fantastic beta [ profile] zolac_no_miko for the quick and thorough job! I've made some changes to the final draft; all remaining mistakes are my own.

Warnings: none to speak of.
Summary: It's a heady delight, having a gorgeous child prodigy working in your music shop, but it's even better when you know he trusts you enough to share his past. A Classical music AU, child-prodigy-piano-player!Arthur & music-shop-owner!Eames.
Author’s Notes: Written for the Eames_Arthur Secret Santa exchange, for [ profile] towel_master. S/he mentioned s/he enjoyed AUs, particularly to do with music, and this one had been knocking around in my head for a while, anyway. The music pieces in this story are real, and can be found on YouTube.

Warnings: a little bit of angst, past violence (nothing graphic), and also -- fluff.
Summary: Arthur-is-a-magical-chef fic. Basically. And then there's Eames. And Marmite. But this is mainly a story about Love, always about Love.
Author’s Notes: Inspired by and co-written with [ profile] weatherfront, whose mind I want to trufax live in, and finished by me. The beginning was no more than a snippet, which [ profile] weatherfront gifted to the world of fandom like an exquisitely wrapped present; I was bowled over by the sheer whimsical joy of it, and I wanted to know what happened next so much that I ended up writing it. This has been a wonderful, wonderful ride she's taken me on, and I have enjoyed every moment of it! If you want to read this in the original comment!fic form, the thread is here. Title by [ profile] weatherfront, who thought she was being facetious, but ended up describing this thing to perfection. She deserves all the love and adoration in the world. ♥ ETA: Now with amazingly brilliant fanard from [ profile] red_rahl!

I feel like all I'm doing these days is post fic! No doubt there will be a long, dry period after this one; but for now, I HOPE NO ONE'S COMPLAINING! :D Since the reveals came out earlier today, I'm reposting this now. There's another story to come after this one, too!

Title: Need You So Much Closer
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: ~11,300
Disclaimer: Definitely not mine. They belong to Chris Nolan, but bless him for giving them to the world! Neil Barrett belongs to himself (he’s a real person, but I’ve never met him, so I claim creative licence). No Bugatti Veyrons (or Stigs) were harmed during the writing of this fic.
Warnings: some angst, some fluff, mentions of homophobia (v. v. brief), blink-and-you’ll-miss-it bloodplay, a little bit of suit!porn.
Summary: It’s Christmas -- family obligations dictate Arthur and Eames push themselves out of their warm, comfortable bed flat and take the pilgrimage to their respective families. Neither has any idea just how hard it would be to spend the holidays apart; thank god for meddling mothers.
Author’s Notes: Thank you so much to by brilliant beta [ profile] zolac_no_miko, who went above-and-beyond trying to get to betaing this thing; who caught my Brit-isms and fixed them (for Arthur’s POV); and who suggested (among other brilliant, insightful suggestions) the excellent title (which comes from “Transatlanticism” by Death Cab For Cutie). Written for the Eames_Arthur Secret Santa exchange, for [ profile] fallen_reason.

Title: A Secret Love
Word count: ~12,900
Pairing: Arthur/Eames
Rating: NC-17
Warnings: Knowledge about Regency period gained from Regency romances and Jane Austen, which may result in Regency fail; Bodice ripper Regency romance tropes and language. Other than that -- nothing that isn't implied by the rating.
Disclaimer: If you recognise it, it's not mine. A Secret Love belongs to Ms Stephanie Laurens, and Inception belongs to Christopher Nolan.
Summary: A reworking of Ms Laurens' A Secret Love. Lord Arthur Morwellan is desperate -- otherwise he would never have approached such a dangerous gentleman as Mr Gabriel Eames. While they grew up together, a misguided fight in their youth resulted in their estrangement from each other. But Arthur knows that Eames is the only person who can help him now, and he must find a way to gain his assistance -- even if it means deceiving him as to the true identity of the person in need. But what happens when Eames discovers his shocking secret?
Notes: This is a slight AU -- in this version of reality, gentlemen can marry other gentlemen, in which cases titles are passed to the eldest child of the nearest relative, much like they would if a peer were to die without producing an heir. Written for the [ profile] harlequincepted Harlequin Challenge. Betaed by the wonderful [ profile] altri_uccelli without whose invaluable help this story would not be nearly as coherent as it is. Any remaining mistakes are my own.

I even have a working summary of a story I'm going to remake:

A Secret Love
Gabriel Cynster cannot refuse the mysterious woman who has come to him seeking help. For though her face is hidden by a black veil, her allure is powerful and sensuous. But Gabriel intends to exact a payment only a Cynster would demand: for every bit of information he uncovers, the lady must reward him... with a kiss.

Lady Alathea Morwellan is desperate -- otherwise she would never have approached such a dangerous gentleman. Despite the sparks that fly between them, in truth, they have never passed even a single civil moment together. But each kiss she offers in payment leads to an embrace -- and Alathea knows she will soon no longer be able to resist the ultimate seduction.

But what will Gabriel do when he learns her shocking secret?

Yes, it's one of my favourite Regency romance novels. Yes, it's by Stephanie Laurens. Would it be bad to tell you that I have almost all of her recent books? /0\ But we're all friends here, so I KNOW you won't make too much fun of me! Right? Right? :D?

It's going to be Arthur/Eames, natch. I am still working out the logistics, but there's plenty of time -- it's not until March 6th that all the work is due (but we can post as soon as we're done, too)!

sirona_fics: (and then sex happens a/e)
I've been writing this for two damn months already, and I'm heartily sick of tinkering with it, so I'm going to go ahead and post it already.

Title: The vital importance of fangirls to one's love life
Word count: 5,900
Pairing: Arthur/Eames
Rating: NC-17
Warnings: a very minor squick at the start (from the camel episode -- you'll know what I mean if you've seen it), possible grounds for sexual harrasment at the workplace (it is Eames), fangirls, a tiny bit of meta. No animals or Eameses were harmed in the writing of this fic.
Disclaimer: If you recognise it, it's not mine. Ultimate Survival and Inception belong to their respective creators.
Summary: Ultimate Survival AU (Man Vs Wild in the States). Follows the trials and tribulations of Eames trying to commit suicide by nature and Arthur tearing his hair out in the process. A judicious application of fangirl squee finally gets them to admit they might feel more for each other than a simple camera man/presenter relationship.
Notes: This assumes prior knowledge of the show's dynamic, but it's not essential to understanding it. This story owes pretty much its entire existence to the "Behind the Wild" episode, which details what actually happens during the filming of an episode/series. I've tried to stick to canon (as it details it) as closely as possible.
