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.

ae_match: Fic: The Physiological Response to Absurdity [PG-13]
“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.

wldnst - gelatin silver
Arthur teaches Eames how to make gelatin silver prints. OHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH MY HEART; A THOUSAND ROCKET SHIPS FOR MY YAYES.

|| Unbearably soft and giving, and a brilliant, brilliant Arthur voice. I love that Arthur can be soft and quiet and possessed of a desire to be so, or be hard edged and crazy, or secretly lolling at everyone in this fandom--god, this is How I Know I've Been Following a Fandom For, Okay, A While Now--I start making crazy statements about The Nature of This Fandom--anyway, I love it. This is quiet, private Arthur, and I love him.

WHAT. [helenish]
Yesssssssssss--helenish complains that this story was hard, but I also love it. Solid, deft writing, and wonderful characterization. Honestly, how often does a story merit tagging for wonderful development and fake bfs? The one where Eames plays Jimmy for a bit, and it's all really to mess around in their heads.

here is the part where everyone was happy all the time - fic: The Case of the Interloper
Arthur finds his nemesis in Sherlock Holmes.

Um, yes plz. Sherlock's dreaming--and its effect on Arthur--is exquisite. Some great insights into characterization.

"you're waiting for the G train..." - fic: the fabulist
Sometimes Eames tells himself lies like he’s setting himself a dare, like how he tells himself he’s in love with Arthur, how he’s desperate to have Arthur love him back. That’s a good one.

Arthur dreams in black and white.

|| OH YES PLZ--I love this version, especially Eames's response, yesyesyes. Seriously: this is a really, really wonderful take on a prompt that could have gone boring, cliche directions but it DOESN'T and I love it.

gyzym: Inception Fic: take the long way home (soft as the radio), Ariadne/Yusuf, Arthur/Eames, PG-13
"The thought washes over her, steady and calming like a warm breeze, that this could be her own kind of love story."

Wahhh. I think this is the first fic to really sell me on the Ariadne/Yusuf idea, but it may have gotten it to stick. I am somehow not surprised that it is gyzym who managed it.

Also, this a beautiful continuation of domestic!verse.

Half-Way Gone - the_moonmoth - Inception (2010) [Archive of Our Own]
"This was inspired by a mental image of Eames, with all the same traits that fandom loves, but just happening to be a woman," says moonmoth--and oh, she follows through. This Eames. This one. I fell a little in love with her too.

I bet Nureyev never had to deal with this shit.
And this should NOT work, but as someone commented, their characters have been transposed with such CARE, and then the development is exquisite. I am left caring much, much more about ballet than I had ever anticipated--in fact, so, so so so much fun, I can't even.

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.

vlieger: hi, so. just finished an absolutely terr
"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.

|| OH MY GOD. OH MY GOD GUYS. The way this goes from THAT to--to--to where it goes--it might be fast but I LOVE THE HONESTY. akldfskhfaoihfd. I don't know, I think I'm convinced that telling it like it is is a job hazard. Except for, you know, Cobb. Anyway. Lovely.

"In which there is inevitably a morning after." Oh my god. This is so great. I'm loving that, more and more, I'm seeing different ways that people can put these two together and still have them recognizable characters. And this? This may be the one I was waiting for.

I Like To Scrawl On Walls, But This Will Do For Now... - Running (Is Something That We've Always Done Well)
"Somewhere between the seventh time they die back to back (Arthur pulling the trigger on half a tonne of explosives with an apologetic shrug) and the eighth (Eames with the machine gun, buying time as Arthur holds his stomach together with his hands and the dream together with what is left of his consciousness) Eames stops calling him kid, and Arthur stops looking for ways to get Eames deported." EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE. I don't know what it says about me--or this fandom--that one of the best characterizations I've seen was structured around one of them having a secret kid. ......... Still. So good, people. Plus with fluffy adorable epilogue.

Both Feet On The Ground
"Eames vanishes for five days and comes back married. It takes twenty-five years for all the fractioned pieces to make sense in a bigger picture." Oooooooooooh. THIS. This is a lovely way to handle that showing the come together would be SO DIFFICULT with these characters; but this, this I believe. YAYS. Read.
