The Democracy of Sleep

I was kind of wary about reading this at first because I’m not really into unrequited love (even though that is like the best angst ever, LOL), but I’d been seeing it rec’d all over the place and the summary does hint to a happy ending, so yeah. XP (And yes, I know, I’m a little late to the party, but better late than never. XP)

This was absolutely lovely — I loved how Arthur falls in love with Dom and Mal, even though he knows that they’ll never love him back the way he wants to. Then he meets Eames and OMG the moments when Eames helps him with his jacket, it made me melt, okay? And there was Arthur, in love with Phillipa and James even though they’ll never be his and near the end there, Dom trying so hard and I cried, okay? (SERIOUSLY, IT WAS SO HEARTBREAKING because that was basically the moment that Arthur realized everything and the ending, oh. MY HEART!
