Inception Rec - Fugue

Title: Fugue
Author: madwanderer 
Fandom: Inception
Pairing: Cobb/Ariadne
Genre(s): Romance, Dark
Rating: light R
Summary: She falls for his ideas so fast and so many times over that he's lost in what he's just created.
Warnings: Mentions of sex. Spoilers for the movie.
Where is it:?: Here  Sorry about the missing link.
WIP?: No it's done.
Why read this?: It's short and sweet but captures how Ariadne could truly be "better" than Dom in creation, so much so that he loses himself in what she has become.  Everyone stays in character, and it is believable how Dom falls.

the resurrected by vinylroad

Fandom Category: Inception
Pairing: Ariadne/Cobb
Fic Title: the resurrected
Author: vinylroad 
Link: Here
Rating/Warning(s): NC-17 / Spoilers for the film. 
Genre: Angst, romance
WIP?: It is complete, but after reading you wish there was an epilogue or a sequel
Why This Must Be Read:  There are a lot of trapped in limbo trope stories out, but this has to be one of the most moving and heartbreaking. Whether the characters are In Character is up for debate - BUT given the specific twist the story takes, the changes in the characters are very very possible.

The Mouths of Babes by Thursdays Girl

Fandom Category: Inception
Pairing: Ariadne/Cobb
Fic Title: The Mouths of Babes
Author: thursdays_girl . Also StrangeLittleSwirl in FFnet.
Link: Here
Rating/Warning(s): PG / Spoilers for the film. 
Genre: Romance
WIP?: It is complete, but there is a companion piece here, entitled That Shines. Double posting? well, i try to be efficient that way.
Why This Must Be Read:  Intelligent fluffyness. The Ariadne/Dom pairing, like the Mal/Dom pairing, is practically built to be angsty so it is rare to find believable fluffiness. This is one of them. Follows the "five times something something" format.

Great characterisations, clear writing, and a lovely period touch to the dialogue -- read and enjoy!
