Why You Should Read This:
After watching Inception, what I wanted more than anything was canon-based fics, which are rather rare in this fandom. This was the first AU I tried, and only because gyzym is *amazing* and I trust her ability to make me love something I’m initially reluctant about. This fic is about what you’d expect from the author – great characterization, fantastic writing, and an engaging plot. Arthur is a stuck in a job he hates, completely unhappy there – and then Eames shows up across the street, getting Arthur addicted to his coffee and making room in Arthur’s life for himself.. This is another feel good fic, really – the angst comes from Arthur’s unhappiness with his job. Not too long a fic, and a fun one at that – so everyone should give it a try : )

  1. This is one of my favorite AUs in the Inception fandom that I’ve read so far at least.
