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 1

In your own space, post a rec for at least three fanworks that you have created. It can be your favorite fanworks that you've created, or fanworks you feel no one ever saw, or fanworks you say would define you as a creator. Drop a link to your post in the comments.

Hmmmmm. Okay, I guess, one for each.

Favourite fic: Well. Each of the fics I write is my favourite in one aspect or another, but I guess it's a toss-up between these two:

Love in the Time of Marmite
--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.

A Secret Love
--Regency AU. 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?

Fic I feel like no one ever saw: I posted this around the time of the first LJ DDoS blackout, and it kind of got lost in the middle of the deluge, so. I'm pretty proud of this fic -- I feel it's one of my best, and it did exactly what I wanted it to do. :)

Not Shy of a Spark
--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.

Fic I would say defines me as a creator: That's a really tough one, no doubt about it. But I think I can definitely say that this is one of the best things I have ever done, and it encompasses my undying need for a happy ending, for things working out for my protagonists, even if I put them through hoops first. It is a pretty perfect snapshot of what I'm aiming for as a writer -- lighthearted, yet with a strong emotional core and a resolution that (I hope) leaves the reader smiling.

Darling Buds of May
--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.

....I honestly have no idea how this turned into such an Inception fest. I guess that fandom challenges me to produce works that I'm proud to call my own, and Arthur and Eames always bring out the writer in me that wants to aim for the stars.

To finish off this edition of Arthur loves his Eamesie, here's an InstaRec for a fic that honestly made me smile so hard. One of the most delightful things I have ever read, without a doubt. This has been Captain Fluff, your hostess for the day.

you are the place I rest my head by [ profile] papered
--café!AU. In which Arthur and Eames are uni students, and Eames works at the uni coffee shop.

God, I'm dead on my feet by now, but I just wanted to say,

The Boston Job by [ profile] cmonkatiekatie.
--Arthur can’t seem to make his schedule match up with Eames’, but that’s cool. It’s not like he misses him or anything.

So quiet, so understated, so beautifully complex and full of warm fuzzies and feeeeeels. <3 Eames was wonderful in this, wonderfully written, and oh, Arthur, I just wanted to snuggle him. Also, spectacularly good Ariadne/Yusuf. I just loved this fic with all my heart. <3

And now for bed, for real. And when I get up, I shall post, too! :D

I've been... kind of quiet? I've been around and commenting, but haven't felt the urge to make a post of late. WELL THIS STOPS NOW.

Points of achievement in the past few days:

+ Finished the cop!Erik AU!! It stands at 42.2K, and I sent it off to my SuperBeta a couple hours ago. \0/ Annnnd now I am naturally at the stage where I think IT IS ALL HORRIBLE. D: Let's hope it's just nerves. It's meant to be an auction fic, and I am freaking out that my recipient isn't going to like it/ I have not tried hard enough. Y'know, the usual. >.>;;

+ While I was wondeing how to celebrate ACTUALLY FINISHING IT, [ profile] delicatale waylaid me with THIS PIECE OF AWESOME NEWS [WARNING FOR H50 CASTING SPOILER], and then WE [SAME H50 CASTING SPOILER] ) I have missed writing with her so much.

+ Applied for a new job. Kind of. It's clinical research admin, so it's anyone's guess how it'll go.

+ Have started compiling docs for my grad school application.

+ Have come up with a 2.01 coda-style h/c ficlet that may or may not get written, IDK yet. We shall see.


+ Have perved over pics of gorgeous H50 cast. The question remains as follows: AOL WHAT EVEN ARE YOU. Exhibit A: that pic wot everybody has already seen, but the fact remains: AOL'S ASS IS MAGIC. )



+ In that same vein, read THIS RIDICULOUSLY HOT BOTTOM!STEVE SMUT by [ profile] delicatale, which kind of blew my mind with how NNNNGGGHHHH SCORCHING it was, holy christ on a bike. *_______*

+ Have made and consumed pancakes--

+ Because of a stupid molar inflamation that means I can't chew most solid foods. D: D: Appropriately, makes me madder than a bear with a toothache.

+ Read this beyond-amazing Sherlock/Bridget Jones's Diary fusion where Sherlock is Bridget writing in aforementioned diary. Hilarious, and also astoundingly accurate. Sherlock smitten by John Watson made my morning. ♥

+ Stared at James McAvoy's ridiculously lovely face. This is Charles from the cop!Erik AU. )

That's about it for now. Am debating whether or not to sign up for the [ profile] h50_holidayswap because the whole of this fandom seems to be doing it, but I have SO MUCH ON that I kind of break out in hives just thinking about taking on more things. WHAT TO DO, WHAT TO DO. D: Right. That's all I have to say at this point. STAY AWESOME, YOU GUYS. <3

My Lungs Are Fresh and Yours to Keep by [ profile] black_betty_26

I am ASTOUNDED by this story. It's a Band AU, with Arthur/Eames as its primary pairing. You all know how excessively fond I am of AUs, but seriously, this one, my love cannot be contained by mere words. It's been ages since I've read any Inception fics -- I haven't even read [ profile] weatherfront's latest, even though she is one of the few authors who are permanent staples on my To Read list, no matter what she writes (I plan to remedy this in the next ten minutes). But this story sucked me in from the very start, and I was hooked.

The writer is a master storyteller, and the characterisation, the descriptions, the plot, the story, all of it is exceptional. I particularly loved the characterisation; Eames in particular is a thing of beauty in this. The back stories, the inventive way the author told this story, the writing style -- it is a joy to read.

I don't think I could express how much I enjoyed this story, except by happy faces and sprited jazz hands. I was hanging on the edge of my seat throughout.

I am about to say something rather blasphemous. >.>;; But here's the thing; if all Team Angst stories in the [ profile] ae_match are like this one, we are doomed.

BRB stalking [ profile] black_betty_26's other stories.
