The Loneliest Whale In the World by Starlingthefool
wtf is this kayama, he texts, pausing the video she sent him.

HIZASHI IS SINGING AT WHALES SHOUTA. SINGING. AT. THEM. :whale: :musical note:

Every responsible adult was once a twenty-something that had no damn idea what they were doing with their life. Scenes from a life before anyone would have trusted Aizawa, Yamada, and Kayama with rooms full of impressionable youth.

The lesson here, Susie thinks, is that tricking Death is tricky business. How do you outwit the personification of oblivion? Chess, obviously, won’t be the answer.

Lions and Tigers - Starlingthefool - Inception (2010) [Archive of Our Own]
What were you like as a kid?” Eames asks him.
“Quiet,” Arthur says. “I lived in my head a lot. You?”
“I did too,” Eames replies. “Only I was never quiet about it.”

A story about growing up, sort of.

The Wind on the Mountain
Something in her rebels against this casual, passive seduction. God knows why, but she’s sitting up in the water, taking her foot back from Eames and dislodging Arthur’s hands from her back. She stands, wet underwear clinging ridiculously to her, and says to Arthur, “All right. Your turn.”

Ariadne comes into her own, with the help of some epic metaphors, mythological overtones, architectural experiments, and target practice.

In Medias Res - Starlingthefool - Inception (2010) [Archive of Our Own]
What's the most resilient infection? What's more infectious than a cold, more deadly than HIV? What lingers in your blood forever?Love, of course. Mal has always known that. Her pointman Eames may dismiss her for a romantic, but for better or worse, love has gotten her this far.(A mirror-verse AU.)

So, first I read this fic by Kaydeefalls. Then I read this fic by Chibi_lurrel.Then my brain exploded, as it does, and insisted I rewrite Inception in prose format with Mal as an extractor, Dom as a shade, and everyone in a different position on the team. Right. Here we go then.

Notes: Fantastic AU where the characters remain true. Mirror verse that doesn't carbon copy plot setting &amp; lines. Great plot, awesome settings.

Lions and Tigers - Starlingthefool - Inception (2010), Calvin & Hobbes [Archive of Our Own]
What were you like as a kid?” Eames asks him.“Quiet,” Arthur says. “I lived in my head a lot. You?”
“I did too,” Eames replies. “Only I was never quiet about it.”
A story about growing up, sort of.

The thought pounced on me in the midst of a boring day at work: Eames is who Calvin grew up to be.I have no excuses for my brain sometimes, but the thought was entertaining enough, so I decided to try and turn it into a fic. It grew into kind of a monster. I had planned on it being short and sweet and whimsical. Instead, it became an 8000 word story about both growing up and beginning a relationship, both of which can be pretty bittersweet. I tried to keep some of the sweetness and silliness (because youth is finite, but immaturity can last forever), but temper it with the reality of growing up and losing one's innocence. (And sometimes, losing someone you love. I had a private freakout about killing off Calvin's dad, whom I have major love for, but it was necessary for the story. I'M SORRY.)The thought has occurred to me that I might be taking my own fanfiction a bit too seriously. Oh well. Hope you enjoyed.Also, the title is the same as a Sleater-Kinney song that I listened to a lot while editing this. It seemed sort-of appropriate, so I ganked it for the title.ETA: The picture that Eames is drawing after they first hook up is based on this strip, which I remember reading somewhere is based on the old Krazy Kat cartoons.

Notes: Managed to capture Eames & Arthur's personalities perfectly, while also capturing Calvin's personality and history perfectly as well. This is a wonderfully adult story for being based off such a whimsical idea.

Phone Tag
Due to his dyslexia, Eames has memorized tons and tons of literature. He listens to books on tape on his iPod all the time. Arthur has shitty taste in everything (except suits) and listens to, like, radio-friendly rock while Eames is chillaxing with Anna Karenina on long aeroplane journeys.

Because Arthur is efficient and thinks he is being considerate, he records voicemails for Eames instead of emailing him like everyone else. Except when he's talking he tends to give asides along with the official stuff, and Eames replies to him via voicemail, and so develops a kind of AUDIO-THEMED EPISTOLARY ROMANCE ACROSS THE GLOBE.

[Merlin] Starlingthefool: When Morning Comes
If life were fair, anyone who managed to survive the apocalypse would be given a fuzzy blanket, some tea, and a nice bed to hide under and weep.

Life is not fair, obviously, and there's no actual end to the end of the world. Instead, there's grief and pain and mud and death, there are minor miracles, and there's the love that gets you out of bed in the morning, despite everything. Life goes on.
