Inception is sci-fi and there just aren't enough out there. Though I'm guilty of indulging in fluff, this will attempt to compile well-plotted sci-fi, serious stories. Because of my personal preferences, majority will be A/D ships but the collection will cover any pairing as long as the story is Nolan-esque (he says his Inception is not funny). Unfortunately there are too many A/A stories and it's taking too much time to sort through. Welcomes recommendations/staff. also see Inception Trope Devt. forum
