I cannot even say enough about this series. The scale of this thing is MASSIVE, which is just fine, because you never want it to end. I'm not even halfway through the stories yet, but I just had to take a break and come yell at you guys and tell you HOW FREAKING AMAZING IT IS AND HOW YOUR LIFE IS MISSING SOMETHING IF YOU HAVEN'T BEEN INTRODUCED. It is, just, stunningly gorgeous, beautifully written, I just can't even. I'm pretty sure I was planning on reccing this anyway when I got to the end of the series but "Du bist die Ruh" trufax broke me, I came this close to sobbing all over my kitchen table, which for me is the truest mark of good writing, and I just had to come and tell you all about it RIGHT AWAY. ...Not all of them are sad, okay, but this story, oh god. TT_TT
READ THIS READ THIS READ THIS. I don't care if you're not in Inception fandom, this series stands really well on its own, although of course it adds something to the reading if you've seen the film, there's all these tiny little nods to the canon that are just delightfully well-placed. And if you're a music geek, rejoice! Every story comes with clips to the music featured therein. I am not really a music geek, at least not with Music as a high art form, you know, I will geek out about The Decemberists forever but I know balls about Schubert. But Plor writes about the music with such poetry that you get all wrapped up in it regardless.
...Seriously, though, I am at a loss for words sufficient to the task of conveying how amazing this series is, have some keyboard smash, LKAHJSKDGH;KASHOUAHG;H[OISFMWBNPHAGJAJSG
