You mustn’t be afraid to dream a little bigger, darling.
AND EAMES PROBABLY KNOWS IT, TOO, THAT BASTARD
Anonymous said: That gif set and your 'Arthur's life is so hard' rant is the best! THE ABSOLUTE BEST! You need to write ficlet/drabble for every single gif set or selfie photos of Tom Hardy forever. Never let this magic die down. Please do one on that selfie he took with bulldog puppy yummmm
Hahaha well look dude I have a whole tag for this shit because a universe in which Arthur is not constantly being confronted with Eames’ sleezy hotness and ethereal beauty and competence and unexpected fashion sense and BAMFery and even more unexpected loyalty and brilliance and ughhhhhhh all that other stuff is not a universe in which I want to exist
but i’m not going near the bulldog pics because let’s face it the only bulldog is Jay Z
The thing I love about put-upon Arthur is that so often in early inception fandom (and sometimes in current inception fandom but it was *especially* bad in the beginning) there was this really skeevy fanon that Eames basically harassed Arthur til he wore him down and Arthur gave in and said yes to whatever Eames wanted. But it’s so much more hilarious and, you know, not actually a perpetuation of rape culture, if Arthur is just continually put-upon not because of anything Eames is actually doing to harass him, but because Eames is so unfairly hot. Seriously how is he supposed to work around that. HOW IS HE SUPPOSED TO CONCENTRATE. HOW IS HE SUPPOSED TO DO HIS JOB INSTEAD OF WANTING TO TAKE EAMES INTO THE BACK AND BLOW HIM AT ALL TIMES, GOD, IT’S THE ABSOLUTE WORST THING ON EARTH AND NO ONE UNDERSTANDS, THEY’RE JUST LIKE “OH, EAMES, HE’S SO ~DREAMY~” NO, NO, DREAMY IS NOT THE WORD FOR IT AT ALL, GODDAMMIT!
so much funnier
I need Tom Hardy again on my blog.
ARTHUR’S LIFE IS SO HARD. HOW IS EAMES NOT THE MOST-WANTED PERSON IN DREAMSHARE, PERIOD. LIKE EVERY JOB PEOPLE ARE JUST LIKE “WE NEED TO HIRE EAMES” AND THEN THEY JUST SIT AROUND STARING AT HIS LIPS WHILE HE PONTIFICATES ON JUNGIAN ARCHETYPES AND ARTHUR IS ALL ‘OH GOOD GRIEF’ BECAUSE IT’S LIKE EAMES IS A CONTAGION THAT EVERYONE ELSE HAS CAUGHT UGH
what is that third gif on the right oh my god i’ve never wanted to shake a gifmaker’s hand so badly
oh my god wait what if:
saito has been trying to get eames to do this inception on fischer for like 6 months, and eames keeps saying no because he’s not really into the whole will-altering business,
so saito sends people undercover to find out what eames’ ultimate weakness is, and how he can use it; and it’s THIS DUDE NAMED ARTHUR WHO’S WEIRDLY SHACKLED TO THIS INCOMPETENT MORON NAMED COBB WHO KILLED HIS WIFE AND IS ON THE RUN FROM THE US GOV’T, and the only way eames will do inception is if arthur is doing inception, and the only way arthur will do inception is if cobb will do inception, and Saito is like, SIGH, THE THINGS I DO FOR EXCELLENCE
so he sets up a bogus job with cobol engineering to convince cobb to “run” the inception job, all so that eames will finally say yes
and that’s why saito just magically happens to already be in mombasa, because he’s keeping an eye on his investments ie EAMES
and that’s why eames is just magically able to whip up the whole inception schemata, because he’s been planning this whole job for months already by himself
"We don’t just need a thief, we need
a forger the one person on the planet who actually knows how to perform an inception, prolly”
I was disappointed that you tried.
DAMN RIGHT HE ISINCEPTIONEAMESTOM HARDYROBERT FISCHERCILLIAN MURPHYHE’S ALSO THE REASON THIS WASN’T A HORRIBLY CRUEL THING TO DOHE MADE IT CATHARTIC FOR FISCHERRATHER THAN PURELY A SWINDLEMAYBE JUST BECAUSE IT WAS THE MOST EFFECTIVE ROUTEBUT EVEN IF UNINTENTIONALIT WAS A KINDNESS
reblogging again because you are all killing me with your tags. inception fandom forever. :(
(also eames is the only team member who ever expressed any empathy for fischer whatsoever. he’s the only team member who ever expressed any concern for what they were doing to the mark (apart from “are we destroying parts of his mind?”) or saw him as more than a target, and he did it before he even met him and it makes you wonder how close they got in sydney okay i’ll shut up now but seriously, from “the relationship with the father” to “we ought to charge fischer,” eames basically constructed the entire job as a therapeutic experiment. (On the flip side of the poker chip, one could assume the therapy was for Cobb.) And then after it was all over: “I’m sorry, Robert.” I’m sorry for your loss; I’m sorry for what we just did to you.
OH EAMES I LOVE YOU SO.
