Anonymous asked: lolololol that anon and you aja XD XD XD my fave collection of inception fics is from that time you prompted that thing on the kink meme where arthur gets all hot and bothered and SO TURNED ON by clever intelligent beautiful sexy eames, and everybody responded with fics that were fucking glorious *clutches myself, wails* and it was perfect, do you remember, oh my god hhhnnnngggg I FELT FOR ARTHUR THEN, I TRULY DID, IT WAS BETTER THAN PORN PORN.
Do you mean THIS MAGNIFICENT BLOCK PARTY :D
I will never get over it, ever. EVER.
Arthur likes boys, and Arthur likes girls. But the one thing that gets him hotter than anything else is intelligence. If he has any type at all, it’s confident, educated, well-read, multi-cultural, and sophisticated, and unafraid to show it.
Suffice it to say: he doesn’t think Eames is his type at all. But then something happens that puts the two of them alone in a brand-new setting, and Eames just switches on on a whole new level that Arthur’s never seen before.
The subject under discussion can be up to the writer, but the point is that whatever it is, it lets Eames’ show off his smart, fascinating, intellectual, frequently underestimated brilliant side. And it turns Arthur on so much that he has a hard time not giving himself away.
Bonus points if Eames figures out and just starts waxing intellectual/over-educated just to get Arthur completely hard and driven wild with lust.
Fifteen mega-million bonus points if they’re *not* in a relationship, and this is the lesson that teaches Arthur to see who Eames really is instead of just writing him off as a shallow player who only speaks in come-ons and has no words in his vocabulary larger than four letters.
my one contribution to this fandom /o\ and i still have yet to write a fic that lives up to this prompt. ARTHUR’S LIFE REMAINS THE HARDEST :DDDDDDDDD IN ALL SENSES
NO sdklaajdad oh my god no wonder Arthur is constantly frowny-face, EAMES SHOULD BE ILLEGAL UGHHHHHHHH
- a smile expressing scorn, smugness, etc., rather than pleasure
- to smile in an affected, often offensively self-satisfied manner
There are moments when I belive in God
there are moments when I believe Eames in military fatigues is canon.
those moments when Eames has to console himself with distracting Arthur with all their usual banter in order to assure him that they’re going to be just fine, even if it’s a cheeriness he doesn’t feel himself. because one look at Arthur’s face and all he wants to do is punch Cobb and lay him out cold somewhere and then go off and do Inception with the rest of the team and Arthur at his side being brilliant and prickly and abrasive and getting them all out safely.
because Arthur of all people should never, ever, have to deal with keeping such deep betrayal and hurt and disappointment at bay, on top of everything else going wrong in this shitstorm of a job. Eames never wants to see this look on Arthur’s face again. he’ll do whatever it takes after they’re done with this job to make sure Arthur never works with Cobb again, or with anyone who can hurt him this much. (Eames knows better than to put himself in that category.)
in the meantime, he’ll drop pet names and engage in cheeky one-upmanship and goad arthur into making the next two levels down into a personal contest, just like everything else they do, instead of a fight for survival; because arthur needs to be distracted, and Eames can’t think about the alternative, can’t think about how much he wants to fold Arthur into his arms and keep him there until his face is smooth and serene again. (isn’t it funny that Eames never knew before now how much Arthur’s serenity matters to him?)
and for once, he’s glad he doesn’t have a mirror handy, because he’d rather not know what his own face is giving away at the moment.
