So that's why the fandom thinks Eames can't spell!! I totally missed that little bit of interaction between Eames and Cobb when Eames was turning in his poker chips in Mombasa. I am much less confused now. Also, is it just me, or did it seem as though Eames sneaked a poker chip out of the pile to keep for himself? That would explain everyone thinking his totem's a poker chip.

ZERO-GRAVITY ARTHUR WILL NEVER NOT BE AWESOME. He's so smaaaaart, creating a sense of gravity in the elevator to produce a falling sensation. Also, he smiles while asleeeeep! I mean, it wasn't even a pleasant dream what with the zero-gravity fight...

Okay, we never actually find out what number Arthur's loaded die falls on. Most of the fics I've read seem to agree that it's 3 but every now and then I'll see a 5 or a 6 WHICH THEN THROWS ME OFF COMPLETELY. Can we get a consensus on which number is Arthur's "it's not a dream!" number? I vote for 3.


NO, ARIADNE, I WILL NOT SHIP YOU WITH ANYONE BECAUSE YOU ARE TOO CUTE FOR WORDS; EVERYBODY HAS PROTECTIVE BROTHERLY/FATHERLY TENDER FEELINGS FOR YOU INSTEAD. Seriously, I get kind of creeped out when she's shipped with Cobb or Eames or Arthur, even. I sort of want there to be epic team!love between them, because team!love makes me all happy inside. (Hello? Look how well it worked out for Team Sheppard).

Also, I'm developing an affinity for pining!Eames, moreso than pining!Arthur; although I wouldn't say no to either of them. But I especially like them from another's point of view. I've seen some very good Ariadne-POVs for them. However, I'd like to see a Yusuf-POV because I think he'd have a skewed, amusing opinion on the whole matter; that and Yusuf doesn't get nearly as much fandom love as the rest of them do. On that note, I really, really approve of the fandom love for Ariadne, seeing as most of the fandoms I've been watching tend to tear apart any female character that gets near the male characters. So, thank you, Inception-fandom, thank you so very much because Ariadne's much too cute to hate anyway.

(I wonder if I can sneak in a fourth viewing...)

Rewatched Inception. Someone pointed out that, hey, we don't actually get to see Arthur in suspenders. Well, guess what? You do actually catch a glimpse of his suspenders during the anti-gravity fight scene. Arthur is shoving off Subconscious Security Guy and his waist coat bunches up enough to see a glimpse of what seems to be Y-backed suspenders. So there.

(Also, Arthur in a waistcoat, you guys, what more can you want?)

I now know that the Architect is named Ariadne and the Forger is named Eames. I am totally shipping Eames/Arthur. I see a trend in my shipping; whenever there's banter between a couple of male characters, I tend to ship them. Sheppard/Mckay would be a prime example of this. I <3 banter. Besides, Eames is such a tease with everyone anyway. He just looks better with Arthur at his side. To be honest, I didn't notice any slashy undertones between Eames and Arthur during the first viewing because I was so focused on trying to understand the plot. Throughout this second viewing, I was all "OHMYGOD, how did I miss that slash?!"

And I don't wish to ship Ariadne with anyone because she is much too cute and smart for any of the available guys (Cobb is too preoccupied with his dead, crazy French wife while Eames and Arthur are slashed; so that leaves Saito {too old}, the Chemist guy {not cool enough} and Fischer Jr. {hello, daddy issues}, and that other old guy that was with Fischer {also too old AND ugly}.) I tend to be a bit more protective of any cool female characters--there are so few of them around, after all--and don't easily hand them off to any particular ship. And when I finally do find someone to ship them with, the writers decide to not make it canon (Ronon/Teyla, anyone?). It rather annoys me.

In conclusion: Arthur! And can I get a third viewing, plz?

PS: I would totally be a Pointman. I love information-gathering. ARTHUR AND I CAN GO TO POINTMAN SCHOOL TOGETHER. :D
