FANFIC FRIDAY: Mr. Robot Gen Recs


Hello, fanfic readers!

It’s the last week of Gen May. We asked you on Twitter and you chose Mr. Robot for this week (the hype for Season 2 is too real!).

As per requested by you, and due to the latest #GiveCaptainAmericaABoyfriend events, we are starting next month with a Stucky special. Because of this, June will be dedicated to Male Slash. Send us your fic recs for Stucky as well as other M/M couples for the rest of the month! Remember that you can do so via email or via private messages on our Facebook, Twitter or Tumblr!

An aid to sleep

By: OddmentsandTweaks
Summary: ASMR? Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response. Who came up with such a bullshit name? Just another name for another distraction to take our minds off the monotony of life. Making it sound special and different to try and create a sense of worth and identity when really it’s just another false cure. A glamour to entertain the herd. I am not going to waste my time. Looking at a few YouTube videos won’t help, won’t stop me seeing her when I close my eyes every fucking time. I need to sleep. I don’t need these videos.

Summary: The first person he really tells is a mistake, a slip of the tongue in a moment of weakness. It happens while he shares a smoke outside of the arcade with Mr. Robot, half listening to his mad ranting where topics blur together until the entire world seems a conspiracy. Elliot’s thoughts bunch together as a coming storm on the horizon, the question perched at the back of his throat and he can’t do a thing to stop it from bursting out. “Can someone be a man but not really feel like one?”

By: goldfinch
Summary: The woman looks up. She’s smiling, but it’s a statue’s smile, cold and carved-in and meaningless. It makes Darlene’s skin prickle. It makes her wish for Henry’s gun. “I saw the sign,” the woman says. “What sign”. “Why—” she turns a little, pointing, her smile getting wider—“the one outside. F Society. Didn’t you realize?”
