Aja - Inception (2010) - And I laid traps for troubadours [Archive of Our Own]
By day, Arthur and Eames are mild-mannered dreamshare criminals.

By other increments of time, Eames ferries souls across the River Styx, and Arthur?

Arthur is the anxiety-ridden Angel of Death.

Aja - Inception (2010) - Hopeful Romantics [Archive of Our Own]
Bestselling author Lila Bordeaux has a secret — and it isn’t that her name is actually Arthur.

No: the world’s most beloved romance novelist doesn’t believe in epic adventures, ridiculous coincidences, unbelievable fantasy, or love at first sight. And he definitely doesn’t believe that dreams come true.
You might call him the Jewel of Denial.

Arthur is getting married. He just doesn't know to who yet. (A genderqueer/gender-shifting/demon soulmate AU, sort of.)

Aja - Inception (2010) - Leave No Trace (Exception) [Archive of Our Own]
These are the rules of dreamshare: Get in, get out, leave no trace behind.

Eames knows the rules, and he follows them.

Until he doesn’t.

Aja - Inception (2010) - A very merry un-birthday to you [Archive of Our Own]
Arthur puts his scalpel down. "No," he says. "What's today?"

Eames studies him for a moment. "I don't think I'll tell you just yet. See if I can jog your memory."

Years ago, this kind of game would have annoyed Arthur endlessly, especially when Eames was the one attempting to play with him. He used to think their work was of paramount importance and that anything this juvenile just got in the way of efficiency and good time management. He knows the job well enough now to know that's a ridiculous conceit, and himself well enough now to admit that his work ethic was a cover. He mostly just didn't want to give Eames encouragement to think Arthur enjoyed playing.

He knows by now that was a ridiculous conceit, too.

Aja - Inception (2010) - Pink is the new kind of lingo [Archive of Our Own]
Wholly inspired by this Tumblr post: "imagine your OTP: person A works at starbucks and is stuck in strawberry acai hell and has been making Pink Drink damn near non-stop ever since Buzzfeed wrote an article on it, and person B is the poor soul who orders the Pink Drink that is The Last Straw."

Seriously have you ever heard a prompt that called out more keenly for an Arthur/Eames response?

Aja - Inception (2010) - Ship Your Enemies Glitter (and Gold) [Archive of Our Own]
The only thing that hurts worse than losing a gold medal is knowing that what you want most is the guy who took it away from you.

In which Arthur is a Tragic Figure; Kristy Yamaguchi never had to deal with this shit; Brian Boitano would definitely not do any of this; Eames can't stop making everything political; injury takes time to recover from, but betrayal takes even longer; and figure skating might just save everyone after all.

Note: This is a work in progress; it is multi-chaptered; it will be updated and finished. :)

Aja - Inception (2010) - And dance by the light of the moon [Archive of Our Own]
He feels Eames’ gaze sink into him. If they kissed now, Arthur thinks, he’d be giving him exactly what he wanted.

He thinks about doing it anyway and then hates himself. “I didn’t really think therapy sex was your style,” he says.

Eames’ lip curls up. “Oh, but I bet you’re used to being the exception, aren’t you, sweetheart?”

The one where Arthur's the new sommelier at a world-class French restaurant and Eames is the famous chef who makes Arthur's life impossible. // Just an absolutely stunning, classic, immersive AU with all the hard-to-reckon-with elements of inception intact. Painful, gorgeous, romantic, and honestly very informative!!! And Arthur and Eames are beautifully in love.

oceaxe - Inception (2010) - Ecumenical Worship [Archive of Our Own]
Arthur became further aware of two important points. One, he was hard. Two, there was an answering hardness behind him and that hardness belonged to his colleague, whom he’d been capably putting off for years now.

He stilled himself. It was vital that he escape without Eames waking up. He willed his erection down but it wasn’t listening, far too fascinated by the warmth of the body pressed up against Arthur’s back, the firm length lying all along the crack of his ass. Arthur took a slow, deep breath and was horrified to note that Eames smelled terrific; pheromones galore. Perfect. // NOTHING TO SEE HERE JUST HOT DELECTABLE CHRISTMAS MORNING SMUT. :DDDDDD

Avacyn - Inception (2010) - untitled library love story [Archive of Our Own]
"It never gets old, does it," says the American, after a few minutes of dead silence. They've taken the letters out of the box - they'd been tied up neatly, for over 150 years, into two little bundles - one Laetitia-Maria's, one Nathaniel's. Eames is holding Maria's, gently, looking through them, pausing to unfold a few but mostly just taking in the sheer volume, the weight of them in his hands. He knows what the American means, and no, it never does get old, the feeling of holding these documents in your own hands, looking at writing so familiar to you, reading the words of someone you know so intimately, the knowledge washing over you again and again that they held these in their own hands, they wrote these letters, the very same ones I'm holding now.

He looks up and meets the American's eyes, and they share a smile - brief, awkward, but a smile nonetheless. He's an academic like you, Eames reminds himself. You might even end up liking him. // oh god i loved this fic, this soft little rare book library + vintage love letters AU, SO MUCH, it's so beautiful and quiet and poignant and precious and it made me so happy.

Nice, quiet fic about Arthur and Eames being privately married in dreamshare, but battling things like jealousy and the stress of keeping their relationship a secret. Loved how intimately they knew each other. <3

deinvati - Inception (2010) - Box It Up [Archive of Our Own]
It was 10:30 am, which meant that Arthur-in-the-morning was starting to make way for Arthur-after-lunch.  He wasn’t completely after-lunch yet, obviously, but it was on its way. You could watch it coming, like an avalanche: slow and inevitable from a distance and decimating up close.  

It always started with the jacket, which was gone by 9:00 at the latest.  He hung it if possible, of course, but sometimes the best option was the back of a chair or, god forbid, the arm of a couch.  Eames had no idea what he did if neither of those things was available.  // Absolutely sizzling hot suitporn in the purest sense — characterization built around wonderful close study (and close reading) of Arthur's wardrobe choices and on-the-job day-to-day behavior. This is SO GOOD, I'm so in love with all these concrete details and all the things they reveal about both Arthur and Eames. And, like, 6.5 years into this fandom I have no idea how fics on this simple theme variant can still pack such a punch but this one not only does so, it manages to achieve an outright catharsis in the final line. Ahhhh, I love this so much.
