Recs in other fandoms

May 06, 2013 21:00

Two Rarewomen recs and one Avengers rec I've been saving for just such a recs post as this.

A Battery of Signals by
cordialcount - Inception - 5700 words
To be honest, I only saw Inception once, it was a long time ago, and I'm not sure I fully follow everything that happens in this fic. It is nonetheless clearly brilliant. It's a "Mal was Right" fic that follows after the events of the movie as Mal chases after the forger who's been wearing her face. The tension here between Mal and Dom, between Mal and her quarry is perfect and, satisfyingly, never fully resolves. Delicious psychological thriller (even if you've forgotten half the canon. :D)

Rin's Deal by
petrichoral - Spirited Away - 6k
A fully fleshed out story of Chihiro's grudging friend Rin (/Lin), how she came to the bath house, and what became of her after Chihiro left. This is the Rin-centric fic I have always wanted, full of little details that ties it in with the world we saw in the movie. The author gets the tone just right while developing Rin into a person with a story of her own.

The Monsters Inside, by tristesses - Avengers - 6400 words
(The not-Rarewomen fic.) Um, so, this is a Natasha-as-Hulk AU, and it's good. 'Nuf said.
