My apologies for the lateness of this post the holidays got in my way and I just got to it now.

Soliciting feedback on how you felt round 3 went.

How can we make this community better? Was the amount of reminders and post on tumblr helpful? Too much? Was it easier with one genre or should we go back to multiple genres per round? What are we doing that you like? What would you like us to change? What would you like to see for the next round? Genres? Word limits? Opinions? Suggestions?

With the servers moving to Russia do people want to continue on this platform or move somewhere else?

Also, I'm not sure when round 4 will be. I'm going to aim for May 2017 because the next few months are going to be very busy for me work wise. It will hopefully settle when the academic semester ends.

Finally, THANK YOU all so much for participating in the fantastic discussions. Thank you for your insightful comments. Thank you for the good discussions. Thank you for joining in.

Here is the link to all the fics and discussions in round 3.

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!

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!

This week we are reading:
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.

This week we are reading:
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.

Round 3

Hi everyone!

Is everyone ready for round 3?

I have a question to ask in regards to the format of round 3, since there isn't a long list of genres I was wondering if a format change would be acceptable. Instead of doing multiple genres per round we select one and read a number of fics in that genre. This could open up for thematic discussions, comparing and contrasting between fics in the same genre.

We can certainly go back to the old format if people don't like the idea of one genre per round.

I was also thinking, that for this round at least, we have a word cap on the fic. Say no more then 5k words to keep them short so people have time to read. We've had a lot of long, multi-chaptered fics that are difficult to fit in during the school year/real life.

Additionally, in December I'd love to do a "holiday" theme. It doesn't have to be limited to Christmas/Hanukkah, but could incorporate other holidays like halloween or valentines day.

After this poll, I'll open up another to select the genre(s) we choose to read.
