I had the weirdest dream last night. Neil Gaiman was my English teacher (which was strange because I haven't taken an English class in about two years and I'm certainly not taking one this semester). Then I ended up in his apartment because I had a question about the assignment (it was a recycling project where we had to actually recycle stuff and go green; what the hell?) and for some reason my little brother was with me. I met Gaiman's roommate which turned out to be Terry Pratchett (I don't even know, okay?).

Neil Gaiman was all "let's get ice-cream!" and Terry Pratchett was all "excellent idea!" so Gaiman donned a pair of rollerskates and my brother donned a pair of rollerblades. The two of them skated ahead while me and Pratchett walked. We ended up at, I kid you not, "Eames' Ice-Cream Shoppe." Seriously, that's what the sign said; Eames' name was in a much larger font than the rest of the title, and it was all pink and curlicue. Eames was unfortunately missing, but I was ecstatic to be at his shop nonetheless.

Pratchett ordered first, but I didn't quite hear what sort of ice-cream he chose. My brother ordered razzleberry icecream--is that even a flavor? I've no idea, I've never heard of it before. But it had coconut flakes and I <3 coconut; also, I coerced my brother into letting me taste his and, although I can't describe how it tastes, it was good. So I ended up ordering razzleberry with a scoop of butterscotch--which makes no sense at all because I'm pretty sure I've never even had butterscotch anything before. The ice-cream lady turned to Gaiman and was all "are you sure you want butterscotch mixed with razzleberry?" which sort of ticked me off because, hello, I was right there and I can order my own darn ice-cream, thank you very much. Gaiman was awesome though and simply said, "I believe that's what she ordered and I think she knows what she wants best."

As she started mixing the coconut flakes into my ice-cream, my alarm went off and I woke up.

I've decided I need a PASIV, if only to ruthlessly question my subconscious about these sort of dreams. (And, perhaps, to see if my projections manifest themselves as fictional characters as I suspect they would. Hey, I'm not going to complain if I have Sheppard and Castiel walking around in my mind).

I used to have this thing. I refused to read RPF (real-person fiction). Honestly, I found the idea of using actual people, instead of the characters they play, to be rather invasive. I couldn't get over the fact that these people exist and writers put them in smutty situations (not always, obviously, but still). And I'd get hung up on that. Personally, I'd feel rather creeped out to find a fanfic written about me, specifically. So, I decided I would never read RPF.

And then Inception came along and opened my eyes to the wonders of Arthur/Eames slash. Then it made me fixate on JGL's dimples and T-Hard's lips. And then I started thinking of JGL + T-Hard.

And now I've crash-landed into the world of RPS (real person slash) starring JGL and T-Hard (who is married, ohmygod, what am I doing?). I feel like such a terrible person but my mind goes "Woah, HOT" at the thought of them together in *ahem* compromising situations.

I'm torn and distraught at my apparent weakness. How am I to cope with the guilt?

Oh, hey, look, more JGL/THard RPS fic! *distract distract distract*

(Distraction is a good coping method, right?)

Hahahahaha. I'm downloading a .zip file of a Arthur/Eames fanmix and I was prompted to retrieve the file. There was little button labeled "extract." For a moment, I was an Extractor. :D

On another note, I bought my first pair of suspenders today. They have the four card suits all over. I <3 them. I think I'm going to build a whole collection of suspenders. I saw another pair that had multi-colored skulls. I'll probably get those next!

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

Ladies and gentleman of the internet:

I have found a new fandom and its name is INCEPTION.


Arthur is my boy, my pretty pretty boy in suspenders and prettiness. His slicked back hair made me want to run up to him and mess it up (then run away because I get the feeling he'd have a flail-y panic attack over it---which I would laugh about from a safe distance and then offer him consolation in the form of cookies once he calms down).

I feel a desperate need to slash him (because that's how I show my love). Maybe with the Forger (whose name escapes me but I know the actor had a role in "Band of Brothers"). He was snarky and liked to blow things up and seeing the two put up with each other was hilarious. (I think they annoy each other to the point of torture, but I get a twisted sense of pleasure out of that. What does that say about me, I wonder?).

The female Architect (whose name also escapes me) was cute and smart and I want to adopt her.

There was a moment in the film that the characters went on to say something about the laws of physics and their suddenly not being applicable to the situation at hand. My first thought? "Oh, McKay would be pissed!" I could just picture him throwing a tantrum about it, all redfaced and panicky. It'd be great :D

This pretty much convinced me that my brain is wired by fandom. Seriously, a brain scan would probably show a map of fandoms, all interconnected in some way or another.

Fandom, I <3 you hardcore.

In conclusion: Inception, watch again y/y? *toddles off to find Inception!Arthur fanstuff*
