Title: Mr. Eames &
Author: wldnst
Rating: T
Author's Summary: Eames obsessively tracks a young adult series that may or may not be based on his life.

Welcome to another discussion week! This is the second fic chosen in the post-canon category. I've posted a few questions to get the conversation going. As always, feel free to post your own!

Title: Living Proof
Author: Ester_inc
Rating: Explicit
Author's Summary: Making friends, making enemies, making compromises; taking jobs, taking lovers, taking care of those you love; losing sleep, losing people, losing sight of what is real; reconciling the past with the present; accepting who and what you've become.

This is Arthur. This is ten years of his life.

________

Welcome back, dear dreamers and readers! This week's fic is another pre-canon fic and it's a doozie! At 60,000 words, I consider this to be one of the longest, slowest burns in the fandom. I hope you guys enjoy it! Check the comments for questions, and feel free to dive in anywhere you like!

Author: Ladderax
Rating: Mature
Author's Summary: Eames is a tornado and Arthur is a volcano. Literally. Well, Eames is a man who sometimes turns into a tornado. Arthur is doomed to permanently become a volcano on his 30th birthday. A little crack, a little angst. Written for AE Match in four parts; all parts are here.
You chose this fic to be read as a second round for humor/crack, and as you may have discovered, really only fit one of those. It was originally written for the wonderful fandom challenge, AE-Match started back in 2011. During this challenge two teams dueled for points to find out who could produce the most work at the end of the summer using weekly prompts. There were two teams vying to be champion, Team Romance and Team Angst. Some of the most fun, unique, collaborative works seen in A/E fandom were created during this summer-long fest. I hope you enjoy this fic as much as I did!
Questions are posted in the comments below! Feel free to add more discussion topics

Title: build a town at the bottom of the ocean

Author: liketheroad

Rating: not rated

Author's Summary: Arthur buys an island. It takes Eames a year to figure out which one.

Another Wednesday, another awesome Inception fic to read!

Last week we did pre-canon, so this week we're following it up with post-canon! It's another short-ish fic with an overload of sweet. Read it, sigh happily, and then come back and join the discussion! I've kicked it off with some questions below but feel free to ignore all of mine and add questions of your own!

Title: Origin Stories

Author: laceymcbain

Rating: Teen

Author's Summary: The story of how Eames and Arthur meet is one of the great legends of the dream-sharing profession.

In it, there's a dark alley, a foreign country, a bar, a punch in the face, a loaded die, a poker chip, a three-piece suit, and a kiss. Not necessarily in that order. And not necessarily all the time.

Hello! Welcome to another week of awesome reading and discussing!

This week our focus is pre-canon stories, and we're reading the appropriately named "Origin Stories." I'm going to leave some starter questions below, each in its own separate thread. Dismiss them all as ridiculous, start new threads with your own questions, etc. Anything goes! If you haven't read the fic yet, go read it now! It's quick and delightful and we'll wait. :-) Chime in anytime!

Title: The Cat and the Fiddle

Author: Cthonical (Nellie)

Rating: NC-17 (kink=CATBOY!ARTHUR)

Author's Summary: When an experiment goes awry Arthur ends up with ears, tail, and a few other inconvenient feline traits.

Bonus: Please play the "Cat and the Fiddle (Kitty in the Middle)" interactive text game remix of this fic by Gloriamundi!
_____

Hi, guys! Welcome back to another round of fic discussion. This time we're gonna dive headlong into one of the Inception fandom's classic kinks! You guys voted to read this fic in the "Humor/Crack" category for the current round of discussion; but there are also elements of plotty fic, PWP, and, uh, internet meme, that make their way in here. Feel free to discuss any or all of these elements!

A bit of background context: This fic was one of a wave of catboy!Arthur fics that swept through the fandom way back in 2010-2011. (I think I have some more catboy!Arthur fics pinboarded here.)  There are a lot of different takes on this concept; Nellie's is probably one of the more serious ("serious") versions.

If you haven't read it yet, please read/play the "Kitty in the Middle" remix, because it was offline for a long time so a lot of more recent Inception fans probably haven't had a chance to play it yet! It's awesome (and also hot).

I'm going to leave some starter questions in comments below—each question will be a separate thread. Feel free to ignore questions that don't interest you, or add your own and start new conversations! If you haven't yet had a chance to read the fic, don't be shy—it's a quick read and you still have plenty of time to catch up and join in!

Have fun and thanks for playing!

Title: You’re Waiting For a Stranger

Author: Mixtapestar

Rating: NC-17 (some kink)

Author's Summary: College AU. Arthur's plans for his life are very detailed and predictable, just the way he likes it... until Eames comes along.

_____

Hi, guys! welcome back to another round of fic discussion. (And can I just say thank you to everybody who participated in the discussion about I Seem to Be a Verb! It was lovely and enlightening and you are all lovely and I can't thank you enough <3 Also please feel free to continue the discussions for either of our other previous stories!)

You guys voted to read this fic in the "Fluff" category for the current round of discussion; but there are also elements of AU, NC-17, and crack that make their way in here. Feel free to discuss any or all of these elements!

A bit of background contest: When "You're Waiting For a Stranger" was written, Omegle chatrooms were all the rage in fandom—specifically people would frequently go on Omegle in the first frenzy of Inception fandom *in-character* as Arthur or Eames and surf around until they found another Eames to their Arthur, etc. Omegle roleplays were a pretty significant part of the fandom back in the day, and this fic is responding to that to a degree.

I'm going to leave some starter questions in comments below—each question will be a separate thread. Feel free to ignore questions that don't interest you, or add your own and start new conversations! If you haven't yet had a chance to read the fic, don't be shy—it's a quick read and you still have plenty of time to catch up and join in!

Have fun and thanks for playing!

Title: I Seem To Be a Verb
Author: Aja/Bookshop
Rating: Explicit
Author's Summary: Notting Hill AU, written for the i_k prompt, "I'm just a girl standing in front of a boy, asking him to love her." Arthur owns a quirky hipster science bookstore. Eames is a world-famous mega-celebrity.

Clearly this calls for a meet-cute.

---

AAAAAALL RIGHT, another great fic, this one was nominated in the Crossover/Fusion category.

Loosely based on the film Notting Hill, Aja took the idea of a nobody bookstore owner meeting and getting involved with a superstar actor, and fused it with Inception fandom.

Let's talk about it!

YAY, ROUND ONE OF THE NEW INCEPTION READING GROUP!!!

And man, do we have a good one. This first fic was selected in the category of AU: Alternate Universe.

Title: Patience, A Steady Hand
Author: Helenish
Rating: Explicit
Warnings: Graphic Depictions Of Violence, Rape/Non-Con
Author's Summary: 821 A.D. Arthur is in the nightmare business. Eames is a thief, a liar, and versatile with a pen.

---

Well I hope you all had a chance to read this fantastic fic. Personally, I read Patience, A Steady Hand before I joined this fandom; a friend recommended it and I basically read it as an original story. I'd seen Inception some years before, but didn't remember who Arthur and Eames were, and I remember that I googled the characters so I could remind myself of how they looked, compared to how they're described in the story.

I've read or listened to this story a couple of times now since that first one because once I came to know more about canon and fanon Arthur/Eames, I could read it again in a new way.

So let me just post some questions and observations, and you guys chime in, throw out your own questions and ideas, and we'll see what happens!

Thank you for voting and your comments.

The majority would like to continue on with the fics chosen so we can get to the good part - the discussions!

Most of the people who commented as well asked for additional dates for the fics that tied. The calendar has been updated to reflect the added dates and which fics will be read on which day. Those who have nominated have been sent a message asking if they can lead the discussion(s) for the fics they nominated. A post may go up requesting discussion leaders if someone cannot lead their discussion.

The last discussion will be held on March 9 which would give a couple weeks after to solicit feedback on how this community can be better and put out a call for additional mods. I am hopeful that, with additional help, and the learning curve out of the way, that round 2 can start in May with a smoother process.

So, the first discussion will be held on Wednesday January 13. If you haven't started, please read the fics in advance of the discussion. For more information about the discussions and how they will take place take a look at the FAQ and the Nominating and Leading Discussion page for some more information.

Also as for the calendar we initially scheduled a week per discussion, starting on January 13th, but would you like two weeks for each discussion? The discussions won't close but we do recognize that most of the action happens when the post is new.
