Yesssss! These are all safe for series one, varying ratings. Also I don’t know if you have a preference as far as type/dynamic, so if anything specific occurs to you, let me know and I’ll do a more specific range of recs (ie. Top!John, specific episode codas/moments, etc.) I just really like these. ^_________^
A Thorough Study On The Ordinary Baker Street Fauna by nekomitsu (PG)
Summary: John overhears Sherlock confessing his developing feelings towards him. To a replacement skull.
Learning Curve by ladylovelace (PG/PG-13)
Summary: John is brilliant. Sherlock appreciates it.
If You Find Yourself Against Yourself by roseganymede (R)
Summary: Sherlock has a bit of an odd way of coming onto someone. John has come to expect the unexpected with his new flatmate, but this? This is a bit more than John signed up for. Takes place just after “The Blind Banker.”
The Perils of Urban Warfare by phantomjam (PG-15)
Summary: John’s therapist isn’t Sherlock’s biggest fan - coincidentally, Sherlock isn’t hers either.
Oh, But You’re An Explosion by mardia (NC-17)
Summary: “The thing that’s confusing John is the look on Sherlock’s face—it’s the expression John’s privately taken to calling his ‘detecting face’, but it’s been a while since Sherlock’s turned it on him.”
Thought Experiments by libraryofsol (R)
Summary: Thought experiment: an attempt to solve a problem using the power of human imagination.
I know, I know, I’m a loser! Finals hit and I became a hermit - and not the fun internet-is-forever kind of hermit either. But I’m finally on break so I should have time to catch up on the backlog of requests I have/to keep you all in fic. Look for those in the next week or so!
As for holiday fic, I’m assuming you mean this wintry season of wonderfulness? If so-
Never Wanted the Nice Boys Anyway by foxxcub on LJ (which I believe I’ve recc’d as a single rec before but…) is a delicious AU fic where Grad Student!Eames convinces Grad Student!Arthur to pretend to be his boyfriend over Christmas at the Eames’ household. Really beautifully done - as well as very funny!
Last Candle by the_ragnarok at Dreamwidth is an awesome Hanukkah fic with Eames and Arthur - super fluffy in the way that only the boys can be (ie. mentions of guerilla warfare and lighting things on fire for amusement) and wholly satisfying if you’ve got a ~thing about Arthur being Jewish, which I totally do.
On the Merits of Checking the Calendar by gyzym on LJ is another fantastic fic, one wherein Eames gives Arthur lovely gifts for seven days and Arthur’s just got no freaking clue why. Funny and adorable and beyond perfect in the way that only gyzym-fic can be. (Yes, I am a gyzym-fangirl. Don’t hate, appreciate.)
On that note, you’ll see that the gyzym fic is posted to an LJ-community called ‘holiday_heist’ which was a 25 day long event last year in the arthur/eames community wherein holiday themed fic was posted every day until Christmas, I believe. Definitely a good place to get your holiday fix of fic!
I didn’t watch H5O tonight but the gifs makes me want to read a certain fic…
It was Steve/Danny. Danny owned a gym in Jersey. It was good. Also the one where Steve finds out Danny was a boxer. Where did I put these?
I had the same thought darlin, I got you covered! :D
Fighting Chance by delicatale and sirona_gs. The fic in which Danny has a past - an angry kid that used his Uncle’s boxing club to keep his frustrations to explode all over the world - and Steve is totally, stupidly in love.
I AGREE WITH ALL OF THIS AND ALSO I NOW WANT TO READ SAITO/FISHER. ALSO SAITO CARPET L M A O
derp YES YES YES
Map of the Sounds of Tokyo
Robert/Saito, AU, R, prompt: “Robert is the new gaijin employee at Saito’s big Tokyo based company. He’s intelligent and hardworking, but trying to build a life in a new country amongst the hostility from his co-workers has put a dent in his confidence. He feels isolated and completely alone.”
and because i know this fandom too well:
Title: Your Apartment is the Scene of the Crime
Summary: Saito’s carpet goes missing.
Word Count: 1000
dinahlance replied to your post: that college football AU finally finally updated and i nearly screamed in excitement. OuO it was glorious. (also i somehow missed your birthday, so happy late birthday dear!)
what is this what is this can i have a link
Sure darlin - I didn’t really specify in the response to the ask, but it’s an Inception fic, Arthur/Eames, and it’s fucking brilliant and terrible and angsty and awful and omg the end SO GOOD. The author took her time updating the last chapter despite promises otherwise but honestly, I can’t even complain because it was fantastic.
Here’s the first part, there are five total.

So, I pretty much think this fic is the most IC thing for Steve/Danny EVER. And everyone should read it. I’m not really used to recommending things. xD
Definitely a good one! Seconding this rec!
hawaii 5-0 steve/danny fic rec list - part one - for lisa.
(part 1 because yes all i do with my life is read fic)
They really are the majority! If you go to the kinkmeme or pretty much any Inception meme on LJ, Arthur/Eames is by far the most requested couple. The eames_arthur community on LJ is a GREAT resource for fic, there’s a bunch of new ones every day. But if you really want recs, you can first check my tag ‘fic recs’ because I have a whole bunch of A/E fics recc’d to people there - but I really am strongly considering the blog - just because I’ve been thinking about running a blog for awhile now and A/E fic is kind of my current area of expertise :P
(But if you want one fic rec to start you off, start here: gyzym on livejournal - that’s a link to the master post of THE BEST fic in all of A/E fandom. It’s Arthur and Eames figuring out their relationship, it starts just post Inception and there’s about 8-9 fics in the series so far. They’re not too long, but trust me, you will be DYING for more by the time you finish them. The characterizations are so fucking good and the banter is so good and the fic essentially makes their feelings for each other tangible. Plus they’re sexy as hell. So… yeah. GO READ. :D)
omg okay. So I don’t know if you watch White Collar (IF YOU DON’T YOU SHOULD BECAUSE OM NOM NOM GORGEOUSNESS AND BROMANTIC TENDENCIES ABOUND) but I have crossover fic for you - best part is, you don’t NEED to have watched White Collar, because it’s about the main character, Neal Caffrey, being raised by Arthur and Eames and it is sweet and funny and heartbreaking and omfg their family dynamic makes me weep beautiful tears of joy. THERE ARE ALSO THREE OF THEM, WHICH MAKES ME SO HAPPY. Trust me, after gyzym’s fics, these are probably my fandom faves - and if not second, DAMN close to it.
Fic: Skybird: Pulled From Orbit
Arthur and Eames adopt a kid and raise that kid into Neal Caffrey.
1) IM SORRY BUT DO YOU POSSIBLY HAVE MORE RECS ILL LOVE YOU FOREVER IF YOU DO
2) did you possibly read the AU in which Eames is a college football player? it's lovely and fabulous and if you didn't i'd say go do itttt :D it's not done yet though so i'm sad.
3) i had a third thing to ask you and i don't know what it was.
OMG HI GORGEOUS, I’VE MISSED YOUR PRESENCE IN MY ASKBOX.
1.) Anywaaaaay, I certainly do have other recs!
Summary: Eames shows up in a wifebeater, torn jeans, and messy hair and Arthur is all, “HNNNGGG” aka 2300-odd words of gratuitous appreciation of Tom Hardy Eames via Arthur’s gaze. Nom nom.
Fic: we fell asleep inside the park
Summary: Gratuitous est. relationship domestic fluff involving cuddles.
Fic: Desperate Romantics
Summary: So Arthur and Eames have pretty much been in a relationship for years. Only problem is, neither of them really want to admit it.
Fic: Waiting On
Summary: Diner!AU - Eames owns the diner that Arthur eats at every morning.
Okay this next one I’m pretty sure I’ve recced, but I didn’t rec the sequel or link to any of the art, which is arguably just as perfect as the fic is, so:
Fic: Dreams Are For Rookies
Summary: SEVEN MINUTES IN HEAVEN HIGH SCHOOL AU AKSLDAS:LFK SO GOOD.
Sequel: A Gentleman Not In Your Books
Summary: HIGH SCHOOL AU ADORABLE DATE FAKLDJDLSA SO GOOD.
okay, i’ve recced so much stuff, I’m not sure if I put this one out there?
Fic: never wanted the nice boys anyway
Summary: The one where Grad Student!Eames asks Grad Student!Arthur to be his fake boyfriend at Christmas.
2.) I DID NOT OMG *MAKES GRABBY HANDS* GIVE ME PLEASES?
3.) Just write me back when you remember!
modern-nature replied to your post: HELPPP I NEED MORE ARTHUR/EAMES RECS *GAASPPP* I AM DYING
hahaha oh, god i didn’t realize. i’m always a fan of au. alllwayyysss. except harry potter. so…not always?
fic: What Need
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. aka the one where Athur is a pianist and Eames is a baritone.
(Plus a few cute ficlets to follow up with this one.)
fic: The Pendragon Job (crossover fic with Merlin)
Summary: This began when someone said, “I wish there were more heist fics in the Inception fandom.” It started as a jewelry heist and turned, instead, into The One Where the Team Incepts King Arthur.
fic: Rubbed the Right Way
Summary: Arthur is a massage therapist, Eames is his number one
and this one, which is not AU, but one of my favorites in fandom, mostly because it features Eames sending Arthur picture messages on his phone and they’re all real and ridiculous pictures of Tom Hardy and unf, this is a hot fic.
Words Are Not Enough
Summary: The one where Arthur and Eames text each other constantly.
everycouldhavebeen replied to your photo: “If I wasn’t hopeless for you before, darling, I’m…
i tired googling that line and i can’t find the fic D: D:
It’s called Within You Without You, by maybe77. It’s not fantastic characterization, (definitely good though, just not like astounding) mostly just smut, but her Eames voice is really clear - his accent and his speech quirks come through really clearly. So that line just really grabbed me. :D
wickedpencils replied to your post: a bunch of people on my dash are talking about shipping.
:O you got me curious about harry/luna…which is weird cause i normally don’t like anything but harry/hermione? IDK BUT I WOULD LIKE A FIC REC POR FAVOR.
Harry/Luna’s one of my lesser read pairs and more of one of my I LIKE THEM A LOT IN MY HEAD pairs, but here’s a fic I like a lot, especially just because of Harry and Luna’s dialogue.
Harry attempts to brood. Luna doesn’t let him.
