Why You Should Read This:
I got lucky. I was on AO3 last night wandering about because I couldn’t sleep and I clicked on the Inception category. I’ve never read anything in the fandom so coming into a fresh fandom with no recs and only the knowledge of movie I’ve seen once can be daunting. I felt this story would be a good stepping off point since it was AU and didn’t involve any of the mythology of the movie (which I need to watch again) and I really enjoyed it. The characterizations was awesome, the author’s craft work was stellar, and I really connected with the character of Arthur from practically the first paragraph. I highly recommend this fic.
