gyzym: inception fic: all i want of the world, coming down
Dreaming, driving, dying; this is a story about how things don't change.

Or, really, how it does. Oh, god. There's something about the issues in Inception, and the measured-ness that their voices require that makes gyzym's writing, here, some of her best, I think. Anyway. This is poetic and restrained; I fucking love what she does with dialogue--frankness that is anything but.

“He loves me,” Eames says, shoving his hands in his pocket.

“Yup.” Hobbes does not sound at all surprised.

“Yup?” Eames says indignantly. “Is that all you’re going to say?”

“It’s obvious to anyone with half a brain that he loves you.”

“Not to me!”

“Which proves my point entirely.”

|| OH MY GOD! A continuation of Lions and Tigers (linked in the summary), the absolutely brilliant Inception piece where Eames is Calvin. This one continues where L&T left off, and has Eames dealing with all the feelings.

alpha-minded and other dimensional - Underneath This Heel of Mine
"I suppose," said Eames, "that you're going to tell me this is not what it looks like." And that was how he learned that Arthur could run almost as fast in heels as he could out of them.

I love so much of the premise in this fic--how we get Arthur into heels in the first place is delightful. I'm not entirely sure why I'm thrown by Eames calling him girl in the middle. Probably a personal thing, but I think it might have to do with the equation of heels and female gender identity. So. Warning for that, if it bothers you; I really liked everything else.

For some fucking reason, it's always Arthur getting hurt. Arthur getting kidnapped and beat up and sick, and hit by a mack truck, assaulted and generally whumped.

And Eames is somehow always putting him back together.

Arthur and Eames try to get to the bottom of exactly why this is.

Then they fuck and Eames tops the religion out of him.

|| So--that's the original prompt, and actually a pretty good summary. But it's pretty well-written, and quietly hilarious, in addition to being a crazy story. I'm not sure why I avoided this. NOT SURE AT ALL

Yet. I kind of love it a lot. It is weird and creepy and kinda cool, like American Gods, and that one story with the creeper in the car whose name I cannot remember but had to read in high school.

Patience, a Steady Hand - Helenish - Inception (2010) [Archive of Our Own]
They throw him in the hold with the rest of the—what they stole: bags of grain and heavy wheels of cheese with the monastery seal in the wax, ale and gold and iron and cloth. There aren't any other people, he's the only—the only slave, his mind supplies, running more quickly than he can stand. He doesn't let himself think it again, just works around his bound hands until he's not lying on top of them anymore. The ship is moving, yawing slowly from side to side, and it's dark and warm in the hold. Eames sleeps.

|| Oh. My. God. Ohmygod. More of original historical fiction than Inception-based, really, but wow. Arthur is a Viking; Eames was a monk; Helenish does a beautiful, heartbreakingly developed job of developing their relationship, of not romanticizing the slavery, or what their historical attitudes to it would have been. Unf. God. Wonderful.

Note: One of the benefits of commentfic is interaction with the author--there are some really great comments and character exploration on this thread.

OH MY GOD WHAT. Brilliantly, creepy-crawlingly written, honestly, a delight to read...but the part of me that achingly loves good people has trouble with serial killer love. The author's comment that he's possibly a vigilante helps. If anything, this is a higher recommendation--I enjoyed it A LOT, even though I find the idea ethically questionable.

angelheaded hipsters - Inception Fic: to tell you the truth i prefer the worst in you, Arthur/Eames, R
Eames starts the day by sitting on a pack of cigarettes.

FLAIL FLAIL FLAIL FLAIL! alkdfjoiahv;alsdjfoasdufj. I am in love with this universe. Same world as "between my reflex and my resolve" and "this life looks good on you;" only Eames is sick. Much more lighthearted than "reflex," but leavens it with some great moments of insight into motivation and the riskiness of love & dreams. song of my HEART.

is it total crackpot day again? - Fic: But It's A Good Refrain. + Allison Janney!
"You have to kiss,” one of the portraits on the wall informs them in tones of sternest authority. If Arthur squints, the fierce-featured, curly-haired woman pictured reminds him a bit of one of his great aunts. In which the dream world is cupid-ing Arthur and Eames together, and it is definitely not Arthur's fault.

Sometimes, Eames can't believe that Arthur is actually obtainable and not just something decorative to be admired from a distance.

The Last Romantics - [fic]: can't buy this sort of happiness
Eames orders a mail-order bride, but instead he gets an Arthur.

We knew this would happen eventually. And now there are at least two. Yay! Cracky & sweet; rather like a marshmellow in nutritional content, but oh so fluffydelicious.

angelheaded hipsters - Inception Fic: A Whole New World, Arthur/Eames, PG13 to R [1/2]
In which Cobb decides two babysitters are better than one, Saito proves that money can buy happiness, and Eames is excellent with children. Oh, and Arthur's a fucking Disney princess.

I laughed. Out loud. Multiple times. No one is really a person except for Arthur, Eames, James & Phillipa, but that's more than enough. Plus, the movie doesn't really give us good reason to believe that Saito doesn't actually talk like that, or that Cobb doesn't spend his life squinting. Really, really fun.

smallacts: make a home from a rented house
“Stir fry, but I didn’t make enough for you,” Arthur replies, hunching over his plate protectively, and elbowing Eames when he doesn’t back away quickly enough.

mistakes! at the hair salon - fic: well, alright, okay, you win
Either Arthur has an unrequited crush on Eames or Eames has one on Arthur. Also, Cobb is single-minded, Ariadne feels awkward, Eames is naked, Yusuf listens to Madonna, Saito buys a country, and Arthur might have rage blackouts.

Also: really, really wonderful description of the way it feels, sometimes, to realize you've fallen in love with someone, and a totally realistic analysis of one reason Eames/Arthur are idiots/the best ever. HEART.

Arthur has been his editor from the beginning. Eames says he won't work with anyone else, and what Arthur will never tell him is that he would cut anyone who tried.

"No, darling," his mother says. "Work didn't call, Arthur called."

Awwww. Sweet and tender. A painterly, artistic Eames we only rarely get in this fandom so far; goodness knows though, hackthis may set off a deluge. Muted, as she so often is--and yet so very, very observant, as always. Absolutely worth it.

jibrailis: Fic: The Gates of Horn and Ivory
"In Greek mythology," Arthur continues, "in The Odyssey, there's this image of these two gates. Penelope, wife of Odysseus, has a dream in which there is a gate of horn and a gate of ivory. True dreams pass through the gate of horn. False dreams pass through the gate of ivory."

|| OH MY GOD OH MY GOD OH MY GOD OH MY GOD. WOW. This is one the deftest pieces in this fandom I have read; holy shit, way to USE the possibilities dreamworlds give us OH MY GOD I could hardly BREATHE, people, I just. No words.

Eames shows up in a wifebeater, torn jeans, and messy hair and Arthur is all, "HNNNGGG" aka 2300-odd words of gratuitous appreciation of Tom Hardy Eames via Arthur's gaze. Nom nom.

HOLY FUCK. Nom nom is right. Sometimes, it is good to be the gazer. Plus, motherfuck, the ending just about killed me. HILarious.

"Eames ducks his chin inside his collar, leaning back against the wall outside Arthur's apartment building, and twists his mouth, thinking with a sigh about Arthur standing disheveled and half-dressed in his doorway, eyes sharp, perfect frown still in place.

It really is too much gorgeous incongruity for any ordinary person to handle." Beautiful pining, beautiful description & spot-on dialogue. No shit. And it all works out, as it should. A+.

torakowalski: Fic: Everybody Needs Somewhere To Go (Arthur/Eames)
Arthur doesn’t see Eames for seven months after the inception job.

He doesn’t miss him, obviously, because that would imply a level of attachment that Arthur doesn’t feel for anyone except for maybe Cobb.

You look like an angel - [Fic] Jamais Vu (Inception, Eames/Arthur)
It starts when Yusuf comes to them with a proposal.

"Think," he urges them. "It would be an incredible advantage with a militarized subconscious."

"If you get the combination and dosage correct," Arthur says warily. "Otherwise, you're left with a subject and projections more content to contemplate their toes than answer questions."

EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE. Guys. Guys. This is so sweet. Aw.
