I'm hopelessly Arthur/Eames, and I also read Ariadne as asexual and probably aromantic.

I had a running list in this post, but I'm just going to link to my Inception fics on AO3 here instead: Inception stories by Apple Cameron.

Uh! I like this very much. I always prefer to see her as a lesbian but asexual definitely fits as well. Anything to keep her from being paired off with Dom or Yosuf. I like the characters but the pairings just seem so forced. As in a 'No one must be single, happy people are always in a relationship'-kind of way.

Ariadne/Yusuf are definitely done better than Dom/Ariadne but I still a bit random. Do Yusuf and Ariadne even speak a single word to one another in the movie? (I haven't seen the movie in a long time, I just read fanfics as always.)
And yes, her interest in Dom does not come off as sexual or romantic at all. I got more of a 'I'm very worried about this unstable and heartbroken man' vibe as I remember. Well, along with the fascination and how impressive she is by his intellect. But she never seemed attracted to him. Also, with Mal being so present it's hard not to see Ariadne as a replacement for Mal which wouldn't be fair to either lady.
And yes, that kiss was quite dry. I was rather taken with it when I saw movie for the first time but I think that had a lot to do with how fascinated I was (and still am) with Athur's bum. This was before my slash fic days so Eames and his appreciation of Arthur completely passed me by.

I agree. Imagine if the roles had been reversed, if the hero hadn't been haunted by his mad, foreign wife. That would have been awesome, Mal as the heroine and with Arthur as her trusted point man. I really like the idea that Arthur and Mal were great friends and probably spoke a lot of French together which Dom couldn't understand much of.

I don't think Mal and Dom are in a position to be very likeable. They're both to busy being crazy. But I like to think Mal was awesome. Charming and a bit too over the top with some things but you'd like her anyway because of how interesting she is.
Also, I tried making that soup, avgolemono, tonight and I think it turned out rather well. I'm sure I understand Arthur's obsession with it though.

Speaking of Memory (almost), do you ever think that Eames' treatment and love of Arthur is a bit romantisized or unrealistic? And not just in Memory but also in your Roots series. Eames seems to love Arthur so unconditionally and selflessly in the way he just sticks with Arthur even though Arthur changes so much and is so unaviable to Eames in many ways. The way he is willing to give up everything to take carre of Arthur and to get him back.

Romantic amnesiac stories

Oh, I really like this answer. It makes me just a little bit more optimistic.

Also, I noticed that your stories tend to become more romantic when Arthur is amnesiac. There seems to be a greater focus on Arthur's romantic feelings for Eames. Like when Tom/Arthur meets Eames for the first time in the elevator which is such a lovely and romantic scene. I adore it. Why does Arthur have to be amnisiac to be romantic? And do you even agree?

Do you mind me asking about how you write? (Hopefully not since I'm gonna ask about it) Do you work on one story at a time or several? And are you working on any Arthur/Eames stories right now?

Also, concerning our discussion about pairing people off in Inception, what do you think about Saito being paired off with anyone? Because I find it rather odd. Saito just comes off as so cold and distant, both in fics and in the movie. I find it hard to see him in a relationship. Saito just seems so above everyone else, it makes it hard for me to see him with any of the other characters in the movie. (I've seen him paired off with Dom, Fischer and Arthur's mum. I didn't really buy any of those relationships)

Dams break and other stories

You've added another chapter to Dams Break. Does that mean you are gonna add even more? Or was it just a case of being struck by inspiration?
And your other stories, do you wanna talk about those or are they secret until they're done? And talking about inspiration, what does inspire you?

And I've got a very different way of reading fanfiction. I'm very, very picky. Got to be well-written with proper grammar, have the characterisation I prefer, the kind of plot that I like or preferably lack thereof. Sometimes I feel way too critical for fanfiction. And I admire people who can be interested in all these different pairings. I'm way too romantic to do that.

I must admit that I'm a bit sad to hear that Dams Break won't get more chapters. I really like that story and I can't help feeling like the lastest chapter asked some questions I would love to get an answer to. Will Arthur return to Dom? What happens when Athur gets back to normal? How wil he react to having shown so much emotion? Will they stay together or will Arthur make a run for it? Would Eames let Arthur go or chase after him? And how would working together be for all three of them, Arthur, Eames and Dom?

It's really nice of you to always reply to my comments. I like that. :) I plan on commenting on all of your Arthur and Eames stories, or most since I'll probably never finish that one where they kill Ariadne.

I once came across a fic where Eames calls Arthur Artie. A lot, not just once. I'm pretty sure it was ironic but still. I couldn't read the fic.
