Aja - Wir sind die Nacht | We Are the Night (2010) - Abendemfindung (evening sentiment) [Archive of Our Own]
She trailed off, suddenly overwhelmed by it all—the enormity of the building they were in, with its looming vaulted cathedral arches and half-price bottles of Dover's powder; the way Dr. Caligari made her feel like a trembling, excited fledgling afraid to fly; the marvel of the child growing in her belly, and how she felt consumed by the future for its sake; of the rumblings that the Italian blackshirts and their Roman takeover was just the beginning of similar nationalist movements springing up across the continent.

It all made her feel at once as though history started and stopped in the span of a moment no bigger than this; as though everything she would ever be, everything her son or daughter would ever be, everything the untold centuries of civilization would ever be, began and ended right here by the shoe polish rack.

witling - Inception (2010) - Our Man in Africa (Stinger Scenes) [Archive of Our Own]
A short series of follow-up scenes to my fave fic by witling, hot and excellent and full of Arthur and Eames being in love and addicted to one another with exactly perfect amounts of self-interest and low tolerance for bullshit. In other words, Arthur and Eames being Arthur and Eames.

wldnst - Inception (2010) - An Unambigious Cataloguing System [Archive of Our Own]
really "new fic by wldnst" is all i have to say here, but this is also a gorgeous, finely wrought story of an unfulfilled life waking up to its own complacency, in the form of Eames sweeping into Arthur's domestic life and changing everything. It's beautiful and you should read it. Also, her Ariadne/Yusuf are back and as joyous as ever.

mizzy2k: hc_bingo (Fic) take heart, sweetheart [Inception] (Eames/Arthur) (PG-13) (1/2)
Mizzy never uploaded this fic to AO3 for some reason, and I never actually recced it until now, so we both fail. This is the one where Arthur keeps bailing Eames out of jail, even though they aren't exactly on friendly terms, and it's snarky and sweet and so in-character that my heart bursts with love. I haven't reread this in FAR too long. A++++

Inception Anonymous Kink Meme - Prompt Post No. 11
Pre-movie. Cobb hires Eames for a job. Arthur and Eames know each other for years but they're acting like they meet for the first time, because it's something they almost always do (bonus points for Mal suspecting something).

But then the job went really really wrong, they are in a real deep shit, and Cobb is blaming Eames, pointing a gun at him.

And there's Arthur with his Glock pointed at Cobb's head, asking him to put the gun down right the fuck now.

And? // fabulous long plotty kink meme fill from 2011 featuring Cobb and Arthur on a job meeting with a very sketchy Eames, or so Cobb thinks. The dynamics between all three of them here are fabulous, and Arthur's characterization and Cobb's POV are especially deft and considered. Competent, sympathetic, wryly humorous yet obviously still desperate Cobb is a rare treat. I'm so pleased I stumbled across this tucked-away gem.

nekare: Impasse [Inception, Arthur/Eames, R]
“It seems like you’ve won,” Eames says as he gets the detonator out, grinning, soaked and breathless, his mouth impossibly red, staring at Arthur like he’s the only bright thing in the darkness.

“Seems like I have,” Arthur says, before pulling Eames close by his lapels and kissing him, aggressive and unkind, but Eames just groans and pulls him closer, kisses back just as hard.

This is bad. This is really bad and stupid and unprofessional, but Eames’ mouth is warm and his hands cold against his skin as they get under Arthur’s shirt. He can’t seem to be able to think at the moment, is reduced to pure sensation and his blood ringing in his ears. Rainwater seeps into their mouths as they move together.

There are gunshots in the distance, and Eames nips at his lips before smiling against them. // quintessential, classic arthur-make-up-your-mind fic. <3 oh i love them, i *love* them

syzygysm - Inception (2010) - la vie est ailleurs [Archive of Our Own]
i don't know how i stumbled across this fic in the dead of night but it just blew my mind. An inception backstory where a 17-year-old Eames is the one Mal and Cobb take under their wing, told from the pov of a Mal who wants too much as always. Mal/Eames, potential Arthur/Eames—the fic is an eternal WIP but ends in a really strong place, and it's so, so, so good. Gah.

i have no idea how i never read this fic before--actually it's because i don't normally read high school AUs and this was close enough that i shied away. but it's enjambament and so i should have known that it would be so much more than that. sprawling and a classic 'decades-of-mutual-longing-and-working-shit-out' fic. Arthur and Eames have known each other all their lives. Until they don't anymore.

polytropic_liar | Inception fic: "Memory" [Arthur/Eames]
Eames, whose grip on his totem is fairly painful by this point, simply gapes. Arthur waits for exactly three seconds—of course he does, how utterly typical and somehow wonderful—and then leans over. // This is a gorgeous, smart, utterly fantastic and immersive and canonical and brilliant and yearning-filled amnesia!fic in which Arthur has his memory razed to the ground, and he, Eames, and Ariadne form a mini-family in their attempts to help him recover who he is. Excellent canonical explorations of dream psychology and memory recovery, and excellent character studies of Arthur and Eames. Seriously fucking fantastic. I'm so happy I read this today :D

this is the third part of a long series that starts as a johnlock crossover, but it functions very well as a standalone, and you should read it if you like unberably hot competent terse arthur being unberably hot and competent and terse, and eames being unbearably charming and people-savvy and in love with arthur, and provoking arthur to unbearably wonderful declarations of love.

Matthias SCHOENAERTS - Page - Interview Magazine
I identify with having strong, powerful female influences in my life. Do you think that women are fairly represented in screenplays, film, TV, and theater today? Or do you think there should be better parts for women than just girlfriend and wife or lover? Because I'm bored with that. ... Are you in your blue period or your pink one?...The media is one side of what we do, which I don't understand quite how to fit into because I didn't come here to sell anything. You don't get taught to do that side. // There's no part of Tom Hardy's part of this interview that's not incredible, basically. "I DO LOVE A THEORETICIAN," oh my god. <3

Fisk's indictment is good news for everyone -- except the members of his legal team. When no one else will hire Marci, she's forced to take a job at Nelson & Murdock. To make matters worse, she's starting to develop actual feelings for her dorky, no-strings-attached friend with benefits, Foggy Nelson. // This is gr9. It's everything you love about Daredevil combined with an amazingly voiced POV character who nearly got the shaft in the show. And the second fic is even better than the first. It's just fantastic.
