    Summary

    He's used to the fluidity of dreams, to the quicksilver mutability of Eames within them, but it still shifts something inside his chest, to be chasing one person and finding another, to know that they are both the same. It's a Penrose staircase he's walked a thousand times, and yet every time there is a moment when he falls headlong off the paradox's edge.

    Amazing love story between Arthur and genderfluid Eames. Eames is so well-drawn, and Arthur too. The language is as beautiful as the story.

    “This isn’t something we do, Eames. It’s something we are.” Magical realism, soulbonding, d/s fusion.
    warning: So, like, for real. It’s a d/s relationship, but it’s also soulbonding, so like DUB CON. Borderline kidnapping. Watch out for that. *hands*

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Arthur is a dom, but not in the BDSM sense - it's a thing that he is. It's a fic about soulbonding and the profound psychic link between a dom and their sub. Set in Paris.

    This is extremely well-written and gripping. I wasn't familiar with the soulbonding concept before this story, but the way it's done here is very compelling. Eames' POV is fascinating.

    Summary

    People assume that Eames likes to be in perfect control of everything: how he presents himself to the world, how others see him, how an extraction goes down. That's true, mostly. Sometimes. The reality is more complicated.

    A story in which Eames is a sub who doesn't like to be penetrated, and Arthur is a dom that really, really does.

    Arthur is a massage therapist!AU. This is a really interesting backstory AU.

    There are two massage AUs I've read - this is the less fluffy one. It leads into a more canon-compliant prequel fic eventually but can be read standalone. Great stuff. Worth the read.

    Summary

    Arthur is an investment banker. He is professional and efficient. He's a halfway decent cook. He's totally independent and has been since the age of eighteen. Maybe he's tired all the time because he works about ninety hours a week which is twice what normal people do, but he's rich and he's competent at his job. He's almost thirty, and already a success.

    And there are some things Arthur is not. For instance: Arthur is not gay.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Arthur is a closeted banker in heavy denial, and he sometimes picks up men because it vents the overwhelming stress. Then he meets Eames, and it turns into a habit.

    This (and the related Eames-POV piece) is angsty but brilliant. I'm not a huge one for reading angst, but this is so worth it. Great characterisations, story, and emotional payoff. This one gets stuck in my head.

    Summary

    Arthur usually finds blatant fishing for compliments extremely irritating, but in Eames’ case he is reluctantly charmed. In fact, he writes the phrase “reluctantly charmed” into the Eames notebook the moment the words occur to him because they so perfectly encapsulate his entire situation.

    Summary

    Being a freshman piano performance major at a prestigious New England conservatory is difficult enough without landing the school's star baritone as your singer, and inevitably, your hopeless crush.

    Ah, the boy's eyes
    So sweet and clear to me,
    and something radiates from them
    that wins my whole heart.

    With those sweet eyes
    He looks into my own!
    If he should see his image in mine,
    He would surely greet me lovingly.

    And so I surrender myself entirely,
    Just to serve his eyes,
    For something radiates from them
    That wins my whole heart.

    (While this story is part of a series it works perfectly well as a stand-alone, so you don't need to read anything else to have this make sense.)

    These differences between British and American terminology and culture below are all ones I have seen in Sherlock fic or that are likely to come up in Sherlock fic. It is not exhaustive and I know that I will think of or spot at least 10 more as soon as I post this, but it is a start. If you have read fic set in America written by a Brit you will know that these things jar and spoil the flow quite a lot, so here you go.

    He startles awake as a slight draught of air washes over his face, accompanied by the rustle of clothing more sensed than heard, and he knows two things without even thinking; his window is open, and Sherlock is climbing through it. Again. 

    Character study with a side order of porn, or possibly the other way around. May contain traces of plot, but nothing of consequence.
