EDGE OF TOMORROW, 9 RECS, Rita Vrataski/William Cage

I saw this movie a couple months ago for the first time and have seen it close to 10 times by now because I loved it that much, the tag is very empty (save for a fic that I also wanted to rec) so I decided that needed to change, and that's why you get 9 RECS!

Why This Must Be Read: This is a very creepy very very good fic. Five times things, starts harmlessly and ends... with a somewhat twisted myth about the creation of the mimics. It's just really good, but don't go in expecting fluff.

Why This Must Be Read: This is my favorite fic in the fandom so far. It deals with the aftermath of the mimics' war and how Cage tries to have some kind of relationship with Rita without fucking it all up because of everything they know and everything they don't. It's about second chances, with a fantastic twist at the end. It's filled with angst but has a hopeful ending. It's just beautiful all around, got nothing but love for this.

Why This Must Be Read: Snapshots of what happens after the war is over. Very shorts instances that manage to build a complete story beautifully.

Why This Must Be Read: For starters, I love that the author takes time to show the impotence and weirdness Cage feels at his body not being/behaving the way he feels it should after that much time passing fighting in loops, after it being broken and remade in so many different ways. Or that it mentions his sleeping patterns after he comes back because that's something I thought about a lot after watchign the movie, did he sleep at all? How will that affect him once the war and the loops are over? But most of all, I love that this is a story about how to build a relationship (of any kind) with someone you absolutely love but doesn't remember you.

Why This Must Be Read: After that last loop you just have to wonder what if that's part of him now? What if whenever he dies, he goes back to that helicopter? Well, this story deals with that very nicely.

Why This Must Be Read: Short, sweet, another possibility for their future. Omegas' blood work a little bit differently than Alphas'.

Why This Must Be Read: Cage remembers and I die because each sentence takes me back to an scene in the movie or makes me think about all the things we didn't get to see but must have happened.

Why This Must Be Read: The war is over and then... it isn't. Fantastic story about Cage taking some time off during a war.

Why This Must Be Read: One of the things I love about this fic is that it deals with what happens with the world after Cage dies in every iteration. This story is very much a story about how Cage falls for Rita one loop at a time and it's beautiful, but the fact that multiple verses are created every time he dies is probably my fave part.


ENJOY!
