This week we are reading:
Title: In Progress and Absence, Again
Author: sevenimpossiblethings
Rating: Teen and up (PG-13)
Author's Summary: In Progress - Arthur felt as if he’d been watching Eames out of the corner of his eye for years, just catching glimpses, and he was ready to turn his head and really see. To stare, full on. He hoped Eames would hold still so he could drink in the whole picture.
Absence, Again - Eames reads the emails.

These fics are the first two parts of "The First Minute is for Hello Kisses" by the wonderful sevenimpossiblethings. They are another product of the amazing group of fics written for Inception Bingo during inceptiversay this year! I love so many things about these fics, but I'll cover that in the comments and discussion topics I post below in the comments. As always, please feel free to add your own!

PS - part three is an Ari/Yusef story from the same universe, so feel free to check that out as well. Doing all three put us over the word limit, but I still encourage you to read it!

I love everything that you do!

I love Arthur's reaction when he realizes Eames has seen the emails. I would love to see the scene where Eames first discovers them from his POV.

It also reminds me a bit of "Give Me the Number (if you can find it)" where Eames discovers Arthur's unsent text messages when they accidently swap phones.

I have always wondered what Eames was thinking when he was waiting at LAX for Arthur. Like, did Eames know all along that he was in a real relationship with Arthur? Was he waiting patiently for Arthur to see it?

Also, there's another fic where they communicate via unsent drafts of e-mails. Is it "Kitten"?

I actually thought the second fic might be from Eames's POV. I, too, would love to see that.

The idea that these two idiots would start out having sex and take forever to realize that it's not just sex is just...my favorite thing. It just seems so likely that it's how they'd justify letting themselves have the thing they most want: "It's not weird or dangerous. It's just hormones. It's cool."

Also, I love the epistolary nature of Arthur's revelations.

I'm glad Eames responds to the e-mails, because I feel like that could be sketchy otherwise. But he responds slowly, giving Arthur plenty of time to stop him if he wanted to, and I think that makes it better.

Also, I like to think they know each other *really* well. It seems like Arthur might be more comfortable with Eames learning these things through the text intermediary, and Eames might know him well enough to know Arthur would prefer this but also would hate to admit this out loud.

I *love* this. Because I think it *is* what love is. When you lose someone, it's always the little things that devastate you, not the big ones. And when you think of your favorite parts of a person, you think of little moments.
