"An island?" Arthur stared at Eames, who shrugged. "What the hell do you need an island for?"

"It's pretty." Eames gave Arthur a sour, challenging look. "And I thought maybe you'd come visit me there."

Arthur glanced instinctively at Saito, whose face hadn't changed. "Are you kidding me?"

"This," Saito said, "is very stupid."

A story in fifteen parts, in which the angel Castiel finds himself put in an untenable position, and consequentially loses his grace. In which he goes on a roadtrip with a demon, discovers the delights of tequila and french fries and pie, plays a starring role in a virgin sacrifice, is deflowered by his favourite Winchester, and then gets some very unpleasant news indeed.

Praise the Lord (and Pass the Ammunition) [audiobook] | audiofic
This is a rec for "Praise the Lord and Pass the Ammunition" by nekomitsu, a fic no longer online except in this audiobook format. And I'm so so glad it is because a) it's an excellent fic that has stayed with me ever since I listened to it in November, and b) it's a great podfic rendition. Funny, sharp, sweet, with elements of parody and poignance, this is one of the handful of fics I've loved in the SPN fandom. :)

Aja - Inception (2010) - One Time for Your Mind. [Archive of Our Own]
As if everything else about this job isn't fucked up enough, the mark has an earworm.


Arthur has been listening to "Pon de Replay" for the last two hours straight. The moment they'd appeared in the dream they'd materialized in the middle of an ill-lit club, because however elaborately they'd prepared a corporate boardroom, Ben Hatem just wants to get down on the dance floor and work out his feelings about Rihanna. They've been unable to get close enough to the mark to drag him off the dance floor, let alone have a conversation, and after two hours it's clear that Cobb hasn't found whatever he was looking for in the storehouse above the club. This is hands-down the stupidest job Arthur has ever run, and of course Eames is here to see it.

Aja - Prince of Tennis - Flying Blind [Archive of Our Own]
This is theirs, just theirs, and Ryoma honestly believes that the rest of Seigaku could lie down and sleep for a week and the two of them, just him and Tezuka, could win nationals together just by out-blazing the competition with intensity.

Being fifteen and perpetually on fire anyway probably helps. Wanting to breathe in Tezuka all the time probably helps, as does the unceasing awareness of time and how little of it they have left before Ryoma has to go back to America and Tezuka goes to university. Tezuka hasn't told Ryoma yet, but he knows anyway. He knows because of the way Tezuka's shoulders set whenever he talks to Ryoma, as if the dual pillars aren't enough to relieve him of his private burden. As if he doesn't know how to tell Ryoma - just Ryoma. Thinking about this for too long does weird things to Ryoma's stomach. He doesn't like it. And there is tennis to play, so much of it. He hopes he can perfect a serve this week that will eat right through Tezuka's resolve, his insecurity, his everything. Something that will burn its way into Tezuka and stay forever, the way all of this has stayed with Ryoma for three years.

Please Be Patient While Your Software Is Installed [Archive of Our Own]
The truth is, Adam's gotten closer to Kris than he has to most of his exes, and it's starting to weird Neil out. Neil gets texts from Adam at least once a day that start with "Kris just said" or "Kris thinks" and once: "Kris's mom wants to know if you like toffee im telling her you do ok."

Adam's never been into family bonding much. Certainly not with his own family, even if he and Neil have both made an effort since Thanksgiving; and definitely not with anyone else's.

But now he's, like, practically a second son to these people and has nothing bad to say about the guy himself, even though he's a born-again bible-quoting cross-wearer, and Neil doesn't want to stereotype, but (quite literally) *Jesus.*

Neil's a hipster. He doesn't have the fucking software for this.

Aja - Harry Potter - J. K. Rowling - The Sparrow Prince [Archive of Our Own]
Once upon a time, in a far-off kingdom, there lived a boy named Draco, who was the fairest in all the land. Being the fairest, he was, naturally, heir to a very large fortune; and it was difficult to say whether the large fortune did not in fact make him all the fairer. At sixteen, he never wanted for suitors, and his mother and father made sure that his hands never knew roughness.

It came to pass that the boy’s house fell into disgrace; his father was stripped of his lands and all his fine possessions before being sent to a far-away land to work for his bread. With nothing left to her but her name, Draco’s mother gathered her few belongings and took him to live in a tiny hut on the edge of a great mountain where the wind rattled the thin walls and turned their blood to ice. The cold threatened to ruin Draco’s complexion, and so every day he sat by the fire, warming himself, while his mother gathered nettles, the only thing growing on the mountainside, and wove them into fishing nets.

Aja - Good Omens - Neil Gaiman & Terry Pratchett - No More Than One Schoolchild at Any Time [Archive of Our Own]
In the Beginning(1), Angel #62(2) liked his job. It didn’t exactly pay anything, but since he was one of ten thousand or so ethereal beings who’d been Created for the purpose of admiring their Creator, he didn’t see why he should gripe about it. Admiration was a good deal, and the lodgings were free.
____
1. No, not that one, the other one. You know—the ineffable one.

2. Our Lord had given up naming angels around #54 or so, after which he’d moved on to just assigning everyone numbers. #62 tried not to let it bother him, because after all he could have been one of the ones in the back whose number was so long most people just left them alone so they wouldn’t have to bother saying it all out loud. Or the three separate #8426es, who got stuck with the same number when His Holiness briefly lost count. No one mentioned it, of course; that would have been rude, seeing as God is perfect and all. Besides, counting is hard. It could have happened to anyone.

For a moment, Saito hesitates; wishes he could take another look inside the mind of the man before him. This is a Robert Fischer who loves his father and believes his father loved him, so why are his eyes still dark with sleeplessness? Perhaps the inception has made him feel his loss more acutely, or perhaps he simply feels what Saito believes men of his intellect and ambition are always doomed to feel: haughty, and lonely.

these statistics are pretty staggering.

47% of gamers are women but 88 percent of video game developers are male.
Male writers are more likely to get front page bylines than female writers. Men are more likely than women to be quoted in media outlets, including on articles about women's rights, abortion rights, birth control, and Planned Parenthood. :D :D :D

fleshflutter: I love the bones of you (Dean/Castiel, pg-13, 3500 words)
Castiel gathers him in his arms, holds his dead weight easily against his chest, and tips him so Dean's head lolls back. He shapes his mouth to Dean's, carefully parts his slack - (unexpectedly soft) - lips with the tip of his tongue, and breathes pure light into him.

Then, because these three days of Dean being lost have had a significance that the past two thousand years have not, Castiel kisses Dean chastely on the temple.

growing strong, I finally processed the information on the leads...
The world isn’t split into straight white men and everyone else, so let’s break this down further. Of the 41 films left over for the rest of us:

10 starred a straight black man. (8 of these leads were played by Will Smith.), making up 2.5% of all the films.
26 starred a straight white woman, making up 10.4% of all the films.
2 films starred straight South Asian men, making up 0.8% of the films.
1 film starred an East Asian man and 1 starred a Middle Eastern man - 0.4% of the films each.
A grand total of ONE of the 250 highest grossing films of all time stars a woman of colour. Scraping in at number 242, and made in 1995, it’s Pocahontas; which is racist as fuck and demeans the memory of a real Native American woman. Fantastic. It’ll also probably have fallen out of the top 250 by the next year, while no other films with WoC leads seem likely to replace it.
This means that huge demographic groups are missing. 16.3% of people in the US identify as Latin@, and not a single film on this list has a Latin@ protagonist.
Roughly 10% of the US identifies as LGBT+. None of these films has a LGBTQ+ protagonist.

Laughing as a Young Man Laughs - Natt - Supernatural [Archive of Our Own]
I want to die because this fic is everything I could have hoped for when I decided to go looking for Dean/Death. IT'S SO FULL OF UST AND DEAN IS SO FEARLESS AND DEATH IS SO HOT ughhhhh i want to go throw myself into the ocean and drown in a pool of my happiness-induced tears. IT'S SO AMAZING, READ IT!!!! //

It surprises Dean. Not just that Death knows, but that he seems to know precisely what the bunker is and what it contains."How the fuck do you know ab-"

Death merely raises an eyebrow, cutting Dean off with a glare. "You are the only being in the universe who talks back to me, Dean. The. Only. Don't stretch my patience."

"Do I get a medal or somethin'? Or a diploma?" He snorts angrily, still pissed with Death for being a bit too insightful. Dean knows he should shut up, but really, a leopard can't change its spots. If Death seeks his company, he better be prepared for Dean being Dean.

"Perhaps we should return to the topic of showing respect for your betters?" Death asks rhetorically. "And to begin with, we could discuss the fact that I asked you to come here because you of all humans might appreciate being allowed to look at my automobile. To fiddle with it, as some might say."

There is that. Dean would really like to see that car now, and he certainly wouldn't mind a look at the engine. He reaches for the bottle of beer, turning it in his hands for some time, studying Death. Strange how much they have in common, the two of them, the oldest being in the universe, and himself, a mere human whose lifespan is but a flicker of light to a creature such as Death.

It's not that Dean agrees that Death is better. He just is. And one has to respect what he does, how graciously he bears his fate.

"I'm sorry," he finally says. "I mean no disrespect; it's just the way I am."

"I know," Death nods. His narrow lips makes a small twitch. He's actually smiling, or at least Dean thinks so. "I will try to ignore your faux pas, innumerable as they are. But do me a favor and remember to pull your foot out of your mouth occasionally. You might discover that I do appreciate limbs in their proper places. Feet off the tables and outside mouths, if you please."

Summary: Arthur wants inception, and Arthur may want Eames, but Arthur does not have enough alcohol to deal with having them both at once. //

Eames is wearing a colbalt suit that Arthur wants to strip him out of and then help him into in the morning. He thinks of their hands fumbling together over Eames' tie, Eames swatting his own hands away and then capturing them a moment later. Eames' mouth hot on his neck as Arthur attempts to do his own buttons and Eames attempts to distract him.

For a moment he can see all of this so clearly that realizing it hasn’t actually happened yet is like blinking and then waking up.

“You said you wanted interesting,” he says.

“You tracked me down to ask me to get you a job?” Arthur fiddles with his chopsticks and smirks.

“Well.”

“You don’t have a lot going on, huh?”

“I’ve been doing fine, thanks.” Eames says. “I mean, I guess I’m not swimming with manta rays like you but I’m doing great.”

“Did you like, get bored redecorating your castle?”

“I haven’t tried it yet,” Eames says, “and seriously, will you run a job or two with me?”

Arthur shakes his head. “No. But you can come surfing with me tomorrow if you want.”

“Why would I be up at seven in the morning?”

Arthur shoots him a look. Eames gets their sushi to-go.

-

Eames is terrible at surfing, but Arthur lets him hog the covers, and Arthur gets sunburned, so it’s almost a win. Kind of.

Arthur presses his lips together and nods, obviously dissatisfied with Eames’ send-off. But Eames isn’t about to go asking for promises or platitudes.

“It was fun,” Arthur says and pauses for a moment before continuing, “More fun than I’ll probably have for a while. So thank you.”

Arthur’s words are an unexpected punch to Eames’ gut, and he has to take a deep breath before saying, “Take care of yourself, yeah?”

Arthur smiles at that and says, “I will.”

~

About two years later, during a job in Antananarivo, a chemist tells Eames about the first man to smuggle Somnacin out of the hands of the U.S. military. He was stationed at Naval Medical Research Unit 3 in Cairo at the time. And his name was Arthur.

“I’m not straight,” Ariadne says, offended. She leans back to shout at the girl, who’s moved on to the next patron. “Hey! Yo no soy straight! Come back, you’re hot!”

“Desperation,” says Eames, “a bold move.”

“Ugh, fuck her,” Ariadne says, dispirited. She takes a slug of the cocktail, which is rummy and sweet and filled with melting ice shards. “I’m not looking to get laid tonight anyway.” She twirls the bamboo spear around the glass, put out. “Obviously neither are you.”

“What do you mean, obviously?” asks Eames, sipping at his own drink with more grace and restraint.

“Uh,” says Ariadne, “how do I say this — you’re at a clam dig, and you packed for a weenie roast.”

“Come now,” says Eames, “some of these girls are probably packing hot dogs. Isn’t that a thing you lot do?”

“I left mine in my hotel room,” says Ariadne, who is maybe a bit drunker than she thought.

“Drink up,” says Eames, “and do tell me more.”

For some inexplicable reason, on the same night every year, Dominic Cobb finds himself sitting in a small bar in Sydney, nursing a beer. People walk past, stare at each other through the window, wave or scowl, walk on by. Some people stare at him through the window. He forces himself to stare back.

Four years on, and he still finds himself ducking around corners to avoid police cars and turning up his coat collar to shield himself from the omniscient security cameras. It’s not even deliberate, anymore, just gut reaction. ‘It’s a good thing’, Arthur tells him when he phones from Amsterdam, from Paris, from Mombasa. ‘It’s just a good precaution.’

A good precaution, he thinks, only a little bitterly, can be very embarrassing when walking your children to school. B

this is an anomaly - Arthur through the lens of Jung’s Caregiver archetype
On the surface, it may seem a bit odd to ascribe the Caregiver archetype to Arthur. This archetype is also known as the Saint, the Altruist, the Nurturer, and – for better or worse – it’s generally viewed as a female archetype. Inherent sexism of that aside, ‘saintly’, ‘altruistic’ and ‘nurturing’ aren’t really the first descriptors that come to mind when you think of Arthur either. He’s a criminal; his morality system can probably be described as amoral, at best, and even when he’s giving comfort, Arthur isn’t exactly nurturing.

However!

The Caregiver is also known as the Helper, the Supporter, and the Protector. And those traits? Helpfulness, supportiveness and protectiveness? Arthur has those traits in spades.

Review: From the first chapter, this fic made me do a double-take, scroll desperately up again and check the date of posting. It read so much like a H/D classic of the Golden Era that it made me shiver with so much delight. As I read it I kept thinking back to Velvetblood’s Sex Magic, but mostly it just made me feel like I could print it out and bind it and put it on my shelf next to my seven HP books, and it would fit in there like it had been there all along.

Arthur stops in place for a beat, just watching him go. This absolutely could not have been done without you, he thinks, fighting off a smile.
