This is the nomination thread where you can suggest fics for us to discuss during round 5 (which won't be happening until October). I know, I know. I'm just getting ahead of myself so we can get some fantabulous suggestions!

I would really love for everyone to get a chance to read some of the fabulous new fics that have gone up recently so I thought we could celebrate by selecting fics that were posted during Inceptiversary 2017 (July 1st - August 13th 2017). Any fics suggested outside of those dates will not be added to the voting. There isn't a word limit because Inceptiversary tends to encourage people to write shorter fics, however, I do think anything less than 10k would be best.

Nominations will be accepted until 11:00pm PST, Friday, 1 September. 

If you nominate a fic, please indicate whether or not you would like to lead the discussion on the fic you nominate. This lets me know right away if I need to put out a request for discussion leads.

This week we are reading:

Title: Sock Fancy
Author: swtalmnd
Rating: Explicit
Author's Summary: Arthur gets a mysterious gift subscription to sockfancy.com in the mail, but half of each pair vanishes as soon as he lets them out of his sight.

---

This fic is one of my favourites! Arthur getting mystery socks in the mail is perfect and when he figures out where they've been disappearing to is absolutely amazing!

Title: A Meeting In The Dark
Author: Somedrunkpirate

Author's Summary:  A meet-cute, more criminal than average.

---

Such a fun little fic! Arthur offering the intruder coffee is just such a bizarre thing but it seems so right in this world!

This week we are reading:

Title: Is that a gun in your pocket?
Author: teacuphuman
Rating: Teen and Up
Author's Summary:  5+1 Arthur decides the time has come to say yes to Eames. Only, it's not as easy as it sounds.

---

This fic is adorable in such an awkward way. Second-hand embarrassment is an absolute thing when it comes to this fic but every moment is totally worth it by the end!

This week, we're reading:

Title: Breathe Into It
Author: rageprufrock
Rating: Teen And Up
Author's summary: When Mal leans into his office and asks Eames what he did to his back, he can't exactly say, "the new graphics intern," so he says, "Oh, just stress, love."

---

This fic is an old (and hilarious) classic, and features Arthur as a yoga instructor, which is probably one of the more surprising jobs he's had in an AU. I've left some discussion points, but feel free to add your own questions and/or observations and/or general flailing below.

This fic was a lot of fun to read! I hope everyone enjoyed it as much as I did. As usual, I've started us off with some questions, but feel free to add more.

This week we are reading:
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 ☺

This week we are reading:
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!

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 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. 
[identity profile] ladyprydian.livejournal.com
