Everyone in the dreamshare business knows that the best-selling children’s book series about dream walkers had to be written by someone in the business; there’s a pool about who the author is, and arguing about who certain characters might be based on is a popular pastime in the community.
Eames likes to joke that the main character is obviously based on him, but until he stumbles upon proof that Arthur is the writer, he never actually believed it. And while he’s always teased Arthur by saying that the two of them are made for each other, until he realizes that his character’s will-they/won’t-they love interest is remarkably similar to Arthur, he never thought that Arthur might take him seriously.
Comments: This is extremely quirky and fun, the prompt itself is amazing! And the author has Eames and Arthur’s characters down pat. So lovely.
Meme Title: Arthur/Eames Fluff Memes   
Meme Authors: bookshop and cherrybina
Summary: We need more stolen glances and heated looks and little smiles they can’t quite hide. We need more first dates and first kisses. We need more fluffy filth, and we need more emotional breakthroughs during sex. We need more awkward declarations of feelings, and we need more saying I love you without ever saying I love you. We need marriage and rings and alllll the babies. We need badass criminals snarking at each other and blowing shit up, but always having each others’ backs, because no matter what happens, they are painfully, desperately, helplessly in love. WE NEED ALL THE FLUFF AND WE NEED IT NOW.
Comments: What it says on the tin! Also, the most recent round (the 3rd) has only just opened, so there are new posts every day.
Title: Close Your Eyes, Replay These Days
Length: 21,100 words
Summary: (500) Days of Summer crossover of sorts. This is a story of self-discovery, of running from love and of waking up. But you should know up front: this is a love story.
Comments: In which Tom is Arthur and Arthur is Tom… Only, not quite. Close Your Eyes, Replay These Days is a fantastic take on the 500 Days/Inception crossover ‘verse.
Title: Kiss Me, Kill Me   
Length: 12,830 words
Summary: When first Eames meets Arthur, he decides there and then that he does not like him and he never will. (Well, actually, he hits on him first. And gets turned down. Not that that has anything to do with it.) But of course it’s hard to hate someone you really want to get on.
Comments: This was submitted to us by the author of Kiss Me, Kill Me, the wonderful squilf. She says it “is really a comedy, with inappropriate texts (blame Eames), Cobb getting completely the wrong idea (blame Eames) and Arthur’s thighs coming up in conversation (Eames again), but there are serious and romantic parts in it.” This is her first Arthur/Eames fic, so make sure you read it and give her some love and feedback!
Title: Don’t Fall in Love with a Dreamer
Length: 20,000 words
Summary: Arthur joins the mile high club, Cobb joins the broken hearts club, Eames joins the smug extractors’ club, and Yusuf just wants to club everyone. Or, Eames steals Cobb’s point man. Arthur/Eames.
Comments: Annoyed Cobb, adorable Yusuf, Arthur and Eames sharing a bath… This is, in the author’s own words, “a fic that is 20,000 words of smut.” There’s also a wonderful sequel that begins with the line, Arthur opened the door, took one look at Cobb, and said, “No.” right over here.
Title: You’re Waiting for a Stranger
Length: 17,000 words
Summary: College AU. Arthur’s plans for his life are very detailed and predictable, just the way he likes it… until Eames comes along.
Comments: Whoops, another school based AU! What can we say, we love them! And the Inception fandom is just so damn good at writing them. This particular fic is multi-platform; it has Omegle, Twitter, text messages, photos, and a fabulous story all rolled into one. Super awesome!
Title: Let Not My Love Be Called Idolatry
Length: 20,000 words
Summary: Arthur breaks all the rules of American high school films, as though he’s never even heard of John Hughes, and Eames can’t decide if, given the choice, he wouldn’t rather just become Arthur instead of having the chance to be with him.
Comments: Adorable high school AU in which Eames is a shy drama geek, and Arthur is a popular student council president. We are suckers for these types of fic, plus it’s a super long 20k, told in three (magnificent) parts.
Masterlist Title: Gyzym: Masterlist (Inception)
Masterlist Author: gyzym
Summary: ”Here’s how this works: fic is divided by fandom and ‘verse. Links, summaries and pairings are here; every link takes you to the top of the page in question, where you will find ratings, warnings, author’s notes, etc.” - Scroll down until you reach the Inception sub-heading.
Comments: Gyzym is our favourite author of all time here at Arthur/Eames daily. We love her eight part “Wherever You Will Be (That’s Where I’ll Call Home)" domestic ‘verse, as well as all of the standalones. A special mention also goes to "I’ve Got Nothing To Do Today But Smile (The Only Living Boy in New York)" which has a stunning two hour podfic by pennyplainknits which you can download here.
Title: Dry Clean Only (it’s the one warning that matters)
Length: 6,400 words
Summary: Arthur’s been going exclusively to the dry cleaners down the street for six years, but sometimes he really has no idea why he keeps making himself put up with Eames’s teasing so many times a week. A dry cleaners AU made of suit!porn.
