    Summary

    When Blaine's friend Susan drags him to an American Idol audition, he's not even trying to get past the first round-- much less into the top ten. And after getting through Disco Week, avoiding the media, and dealing with his very absent parents, Blaine's not sure he even wants to win-- although falling in love might make up for a lot of that. And maybe, just maybe, he can win this thing.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Other cultures, Braca has observed, use the word "love" to cover a bizarre range of meaning, from obsessively sentimental sexual relationships, to the genuine camaraderie of a smoothly-functioning company, to a casual preference in food or clothing. Only lately has he come to realize that his own language does much the same with "loyalty."

    Scorpius/Braca is my slash OTP for Farscape, and this is a story that feels so right it's clearly the kind of canon that simply didn't get screened.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Arthur is going to make partner and then his life will be better.

    Arthur is going to make partner and then he won't mind so much that he hates his fucking job, that he feels every day like his soul is being leeched out through his eyes. Arthur is going to make partner and the fact that he doesn't really remember what solid REM sleep is like will be worth it; Arthur is going to make partner and it won't matter that this is not what he'd fucking thought he was getting into by going to law school.

    Arthur is going to make partner, and he's going to be the youngest one in the history of his firm. Arthur is going to make partner because he's the most dogged and he works the hardest and he's the best. Arthur is going to make partner because he's killing himself, he's just killing himself to do it, and if he doesn't manage it he might just throw himself in front of a fucking train.

    Right from that wonderful start, this story grabs you hard and never lets go until the final glorious sentence. My favourite Inception story and teh one that's stayed with me long after reading it.
