Inception, 2 recs, Mal/Dom  
Hey, remember when this movie was all the fandom rage like four years ago? There was some good fic to be had that wasn't slash.

Fandom Category: Inception
Pairing: Malorie Cobb/Dominic Cobb
Fic Title: Some Dream, Others Rise
Author: musesfool
Link: http://archiveofourown.org/works/108245
Rating/Warning(s): General Audiences
Word Count/WIP?: 2,013 (complete)
Recced By: stars-inthe-sky

Why This Must Be Read: Short but worthwhile, this story considers what would have happened if Mal was right—that Dom was still stuck in a layer of a dream. Her doggedness in going after him gives a richer sense of how her projections might have turned out to be what they were, and the author plays with the time lapse differences just enough to blow your mind a little.

Special Rec: 12/20

Fandom Category: Inception
Pairing: Malorie Cobb/Dominic Cobb
Fic Title: i am the hero of this story (don't need to be saved)
Author: electrumqueen
Link: http://electrumqueen.livejournal.com/239389.html
Rating/Warning(s): PG
Word Count/WIP?: 4,128 (complete)
Recced By: stars-inthe-sky

Why This Must Be Read: This story takes a similar premise to the one above—Mal wakes up, Dom doesn't, Mal and Arthur scheme to save him—and expands it, building Mal into a person who feels real and whole and diving a little deeper into the individual characters that compose the team and how they relate to each other.

Special Rec: 13/20

Yay, Dom/Mal fic! Every time I go to their Ao3 tag it's always a ton of Dom/Mal as some barely-touched-on side pairing to teh slash (or to Arthur/Ariadne), so thank you for digging out these gems.

There are SO few of them. And these are basically two takes on the same story, no less. There's one other fic in the ship tag here, but...yeah, that's about it. Glad you liked these!
