Title: You Had Me Hooked at Cthulhu 
Author: onthecount
Rating: Teen and up
Author's summary: How YouTube almost, maybe, possibly ruined Arthur's life and improved Eames' one thousand times over.

---

This is such a great fic - it's funny and sweet, and I love the mutli-media/meta aspect to it - there's the fic, there's the art, and then there are the tumblr blogs: http://4rthurviciou5-blog-blog.tumblr.com/ and http://hooked34-blog-blog.tumblr.com/

I've thought of a few questions to get us started, but please do add more.

PS - first time coming out of the lurkers' cupboard to do something more constructive than just read a lot of fic and occasionally comment... So hello!!! I'm excited to be doing something a bit more productive to contribute to this amazing fandom ☺

Title: Super Massive Black Hole
Author: sweetbutterbliss
Rating: Explicit
Author's Summary: Arthur slots himself into Eames' life and career without so much as a splash. He'd been renting a perfectly abysmal one room apartment in a terrifying part of the Bronx, and he didn't have much in the way of possessions so when he kept showing up and eventually just...stayed, Eames hadn't even noticed at first.
Eames looks around the loft and sees Arthur's socks and shoes tucked under the coffee table, his battered copy of "The Stranger" splayed open on the couch, and Arthur himself asleep on the bed, snoring lighting and wearing a pair of Eames' boxers. They're much too big for him, which is why Eames enjoys it when he wears them, slipping off to reveal the curve of his ass before Arthur hitches them back up.

---

This is a fantastic fic! One of my favourites! It hurts but it's kind of nice seeing Arthur being the dick that screws everything up for a change!

This week's fic...

Title: and we smile but never say too much
Author: arabesque05
Rating: General audiences
Author's summary:
 "I've been thinking," says Eames in Lisbon.
 "Oh, God," says Arthur.
 "Why do you never write me love letters?" says Eames.
 "Oh, God," says Arthur.

---

This is a short and brush-strokey little "view of Arthur and Eames's relationship" fic, posted back in 2011, with a fantastic and evocative mix of pining, feels, and humor. And even an EXCELLENT PENIS JOKE!

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!

Title: "Eames? He's in Mombasa."
Author: chasingriver
Rating: Teen and Up (PG-13)
Author's Summary: Arthur tells himself that light surveillance is part of the job. He almost believes it.

This short fic was written this summer for Inceptiversary/Inception Kink/Trope Bingo. It's a very fun in-universe view of how Eames and Arthur's relationship developed.

I'll post some discussion questions in the comments and I welcome anyone else to post questions or topics they wish to discuss.

Title: In Our Line of Work
Author: Espoir
Rating: Teen and Up (PG-13)
Author's Summary: “That’s not fair Eames, we’re not breaking up, you know it’s just-“

“A safety precaution, yeah yeah.”

Because he knows. They both do. ‘In our line of work...’ is one of Eames’ absolute least favourite phrases, but it’s also usually prelude to his least favourite truths. Truths like the fact that really, they both know they’re a disaster waiting to happen, that someday, probably not too far in the future, one of them will be used as leverage against the other and it’s going to fucking work, because they’re too far gone now, too invested, too emotionally attached and too stupidly in love-

This is a great newer short fic! Please check it out and post any comments or discussion questions you have! I'll start us off with a few of my questions in the comments.

Welcome to the final discussion for round 2! It's also, in honour of the 6th anniversary of Inception being released, our discussion for gateway & fandom classics.

Title:
I’ve Got Nothing To Do Today But Smile (The Only Boy Living in New York)

Author: Gyzym

Rating: Teen and up

Summary: Arthur's a corporate lawyer, Eames owns the coffee shop across the street, and all good love stories start with a quadruple shot latte.

Oh how true it is. Love comes in the form of a quad shot latte. [lovingly croons at a cup of coffee while stroking it’s warm ceramic exterior.]


Ladyprydian + coffee = OPT


Truth time. This fic isn’t my gateway (honour for that goes to EGT and *flaps hand* whatever her first Inception fic was) but she mentioned this fic and I read it and it became my gateway (Sorry EGT) because at the time I was Arthur. (Except I’m not a lawyer and I was certainly not living in New York.)


What I was though, was working a job I enjoyed for a boss I hated and therefore I hated my job and everything associated with it. So I understood where Arthur was coming from, getting through one more day, one more week, while looking for something else. Eventually things worked out.


So this fic is very personal to me. This fic is about being truthful to yourself, courage, love, taking a leap of faith, and love in the time of coffee.


So much coffee.


Mmm, I could have a coffee right now ....

Hello everyone! It's 7PM my time, which means as Wednesday activities go, I have failed you. I have failed Kate 100 percent because I'm pretty sure it just became Thursday for her.

Anyways, here's wonderwall.

Title: take the long way home (soft as the radio)
Author: Gyzym
Rating: Teen and Up
Warnings: N/A
Author's Summary: The thought washes over her, steady and calming like a warm breeze, that this could be her own kind of love story.

This fic is one of the most prominent of the Ari/Yusuf ship, and it sits right in the middle of an Arthur/Eames love story, so most people, even people who don't necessarily ship it, are familiar with it. It doesn't hurt that Gyzym is a complete goddess.

Title: The Revolution Will Not Be Civilized
Author: the_ragnarok
Rating: Explicit
Warnings: N/A
Author's Summary: Arthur is the son of the ruler, and an Omega male. Eames is leading the revolution. Which kidnaps Arthur. This is only the start of their problems.

Omegaverse can be very divisive in a fandom. People either really enjoy it, or they are incredibly turned off by it.

Allow me to tell you why this fic is special!

There's an exciting political plot, lots of witty banter, appearances by all the canonverse characters, a sweeping romance, lots of smutty smut smut, and a wonderful introduction to the experience of heat and knotting and all the obligations and expectations that come with that.

Perhaps most importantly, Eames and Arthur are perfectly depicted. Eames is still as charming and delightful as ever, and Arthur is still as smart and strong-willed as we know he is, despite being an Omega!male. And we all know how Omegas are typically depicted in fanfic...

I hope you'll join me in (re)reading this story, and engaging in the discussion below!

Title: Simple Math
Author: foxxcub
Rating: Explicit
Warnings: Underage
Author's Summary: "So," Eames says slowly, leaning back against the school wall as he idly taps his cigarette. "We've got a problem here."
or, The Fake Boyfriend High School AU

For this week's discussion, we have this lovely AU that not only incorporates all the emotions and hormones of high school, but also throws in a fake relationship, enemies to lovers, boys being stupid and in love, and a bunch more of your favourite things. I've left some discussion points, but feel free to add your own questions and/or observations and/or general flailing below.

This second part of the discussion of gyzym's Domesticverse, Wherever You Will Be (That's Where I'll Call Home) includes parts 5, 7 and 8. We'll discuss part 6 in the rare pair week.
Part 5: pressed against the pending physics of my passed down last name
part 7: life long local foreigner, i
part 8: having let go forever the fallacy of ever being alone

Once again, msbrightsidesh and I really enjoyed discussing these chapters, which are, if possible, even lovelier than the earlier ones.
SO MANY FEELS!

This is a discussion of the first four stories in Wherever you will be (that's where I'll call home). by gyzym.
We will discuss parts 5, 7 and 8 next week.

msbrightsidesh and I had a lot of fun discussing what we thought were the main themes, we hope you had a wonderful time reading the stories and enjoy talking about them.

Welcome to the first discussion in round 2!

This week we are reading:

Title: Rough Trade
Author: Whisky (whiskyrunner)
Rating: Explicit
Author's Summary: Arthur is an investment banker. He is professional and efficient. He's a halfway decent cook. He's totally independent and has been since the age of eighteen. Maybe he's tired all the time because he works about ninety hours a week which is twice what normal people do, but he's rich and he's competent at his job. He's almost thirty, and already a success.

And there are some things Arthur is not. For instance: Arthur is not gay.

------

This was the fic chosen for the Angst category.
This is an angsty fic, and deals with some potentially upsetting topics. For the purposes of this discussion I will be assuming that everyone has read the fic and the tags and knows what's up.

I've posted a few questions to get the conversation going. Feel free to post your own, questions, thoughts, etc.
