rallamajoop: (inception)
Had this all ready to post last night, so of course LJ went down. XD; Ah well, not too much later than I was planning for.

Title: Somnambulism
Chapter: 2/2
Summary: [Superpowers AU] The first time they meet, the point man shoots him in the head. Eames tries not to take it personally.
Characters/Pairing: Implied Eames/Arthur
Rating: PG
Word Count: 8400 (this part, 17800 overall)
Warnings: Not much more than you’d see in the movie. Violence, characters involved in morally dubious activities, writer tackling fandoms and/or subject matter outside her usual range – the usual.

He's not lonely. Invulnerability is no kind of curse. There are just some days when it all seems a bit too easy to be any challenge anymore, like the world has let him down. )
rallamajoop: (inception)
One of those many things I meant to post about last year but never quite got around to would have been a nice long spiel about how much I loved Inception and how badly I got (briefly) sucked in by the glorious insanity that was its fandom. Hence (give or take several months delay while both I and my beta reader found ourselves helplessly flat out with the pre-Waicon hustle), fic!

The idea for this one came from a thread on the kink meme (I think, I have failed utterly at finding the same prompt again since) asking for a Superhero AU where the characters have access to all their assorted dream-powers in real life. So Eames would be a shapeshifter, Cobb would be able to read minds, Ariadne would be able to walk through walls wait wrong movie warp reality or something, etc. A nice idea, and I have a weakness for superhero AUs at the best of times, but I really wasn't planning on writing in this fandom – at least, not until it struck me that the dream-powers it would be most interesting to see working IRL were some of those that hadn't come up in the thread at all...

Anyway, splitting it into two parts to post. The next one only needs a few final edits and should be done within a week at most.

In the lists of suicidal mistakes one can make while looking into the face of someone who could beat your elevator to the roof of a multi-story building and still have time to adjust his cuffs, straighten his tie and select his favourite silencer before the doors open, this is so close to the top that it doesn't matter, and the only thing that saves Eames is that the other man has just done the exact same thing that he has. )
