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++++

One is the personal assistant to a billionaire-playboy-turned-superhero. The other is an ambitious journalist with a political conscience. Together, they fight crime! // in which they bond over poetry! but also really do fight crime! I love this and also the way the worldbuilding sort of takes in the marvel universe at the edges.

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.

Valderys - A Little Wine For Thy Heart's Sake, Inception, Arthur/Eames (PG-13)
For a one night stand Eames is astoundingly persistent. How dare a man who Arthur met quite by chance also just happen to work in the exact same niche criminal enterprise? Arthur doesn't believe in coincidence, but the truth may be something even more impossible. // a canonical AU in which Eames is Dionysus. Not even the least bit cracky, this is lush and beautiful and sweet. <3

feverbeats - Inception (2010) - Here in Spain I am a Spaniard [Archive of Our Own]
this fic was so frustrating for me, i loved it so much but it built up my expectation for one pairing and then IMO abruptly delivered another pairing at the end, in a way that didn't feel organic at all considering how much time the story had spent on exploring the first pairing. It just seemed really sudden and surprising, and despite the ending being presented as a warm and comfortable thing it made me a bit unhappy because I knew how hung up Eames still was on the character for whom she'd spent the whole fic pining. I've been thinking about this fic for days, and I'm still puzzled and frustrated and unhappy about the ending, sob.

But also it was an amazing character study of genderqueer Eames, Eames coming to terms with her identity as a woman and gradually overcoming so much fear and self-doubt with the help of those around her, and it was really, really beautiful and engrossing, and so I want to rec it but with a huge caveat, because it really is a well-written character study, and her dynamic with all of the other Inception team members is wonderful, and, sigh, just don't read it with high hopes for a comforting, glowy OTP resolution, because that's not what it's about.
