25 favourite Arthur/Eames stories

paintlittle:

Just got back home from seaside - it was as enjoyable as it was boring and as I had hardly anything to do, I caught up on my reading and decided to make this little list.

23 stories that I read more than ten times.

all we need is one more time | postcardmystery | Modern day Bonnie and Clyde. | complete.

as it comes | epistolic | Arthur falls into a coma after a job gone wrong and wakes up four years later to Eames waiting for him. But things aren’t as simple as that. | complete.

both feet on the ground | AndreaLyn | Eames vanishes for five days and comes back married. It takes twenty-five years for all the fractioned pieces to make sense in a bigger picture. | complete.

call and answer | AirgiodSLV | “Call if you need me,” Arthur says, “and I’ll come.” | complete.

don’t feed me, Seymour | gyzym | "This looks delicious," Eames fucking lies, because the only accurate statement would be This looks like intestines, and he would like Arthur to continue to shagging him. | complete.

in our line of work | enjambament | Arthur wakes up and realizes the last ten years of his life have been a dream. | complete.

it’s automatic | weatherfront | Bang bang, we’re beautiful and dirty rich. | complete.

job requirements | mixtapestar | Arthur thinks Eames’s flat is a mess. Eames has a solution for that. | complete.

love in the time of marmite | sirona and weatherfront | Arthur is a magical chef. And then there’s Eames. And Marmite. But this is mainly a story about love, always about love. | complete.

love is a doing word | gunwars | Mallorie Cobb wants what Arthur and Eames have, even if they don’t want it themselves. | complete.

make a home from the rented house | liketheroad | Arthur doesn’t quite know when renting a house in Westchester and pretending to be in a civil union with Eames came to constitute “lying-low” but however it happened, he wants a do-over. | complete.

metaphors as mixed as you can make them | halflinen | Eames tries to incept Arthur. | complete.

occupational hazard | sarahyyy | In which Eames writes (sometimes horrible) horoscopes to woo Arthur, much to the chagrin of everyone (read: Dom), and manages to even mess that up. Go figure. | complete.

one week | duckgirlie and weatherfront | Eames needs to be more careful about where he leaves his notes. | complete.

presque vu | rageprufrock | Arthur meets Mal first. He inherits Dom, after. Everything else is on him. | complete.

provenance | rageprufrock | Eleven years ago, Dom was new to Interpol and effusive with enthusiasm, and in the thrall of his own cleverness he’d met Mal during one of Arthur’s ruthlessly thorough crash-course weekends. | complete.

renovations (verse) | joosetta | In which Eames builds a nest and (accidentally) lures Arthur into it. | WIP.

skybird | windsweptfic | Arthur and Eames adopt a kid and raise that kid into Neal Caffrey. | complete.

the house that Cobb built | eleveninches | The first and last time Eames was invited to the Cobb’s. | complete.

we were once cinema gods in the night | gyzym | That’s the thing about Hollywood—everyone has a Hollywood story. | complete.

where the dead live | mirabella | There’s a monster in Arthur’s basement. | complete.

where the wild things are | bildungsromantic | Arthur is a vampire, Eames is a werewolf and the Cobbs are paranormal researchers. | complete.

wherever you will be (that’s where I’ll call home) (verse) | gyzym | Arthur and Eames go domestic. | WIP.

+ 2 stories which I read only once and which left me raw and bleeding and which broke my heart (I still cannot look at those titles without sobbing).

memoirs of a prisoner | OneWhoSitsWithTurtles | Eames and Arthur started out as two strangers locked in a prison cell together. Then things changed. Things always change. | complete.

the petrified forest | epistolic | Inspired by Revolutionary Road. | complete.

They meet anyway and head down a decidedly bloodier career path as assassins. Along the way their shoulders brush with what might have been.
