Arthur/Eames, Kurt/Blaine (?)

Kurt was in a fabulous cafe, decorated with a tasteful coffee theme and accented by dangling Christmas ornaments. )

Author: [ profile] snowdarkred 
Word Count:  ~1K
Pairings: Eames/Arthur
Rating/Warnings: teen+, dream violence and some dark themes
Author's Note:  I've been trying to fit this in with some of my other Inception fics, but it wants to stand on its own. And I'm not one to argue with muses; it tends to end badly. :D

Summary: They're subdued in minutes, with no backup and no way of killing themselves to escape.

Title: and when we wake from everything and nothing
Author: [ profile] snowdarkred 
Word Count:  500
Pairings: Eames/Arthur
Rating/Warnings: PG, post-limbo-ness, touch deprivation, angst, second person
Author's Note:  I wrote this after being ~inspired by [ profile] gyzym 's Inspiration meme on her journal - more specifically, by this photo, which is so completely heartrendingly beautiful, I can't even describe it. I in no way did it justice.  I don't think anyone could. My thanks to the anon who posted it.

Summary: Arthur wakes up from the nothingness, and Eames refuses to ever let him go again.

and when we wake from everything and nothing

He holds you like that's the only place he ever wants you to be, like you could drop him three levels down and he would still hold on, still grip you to him like he was the one who was lost for all those years. )

Title: one hand over the other
Author: [ profile] snowdarkred 
Word Count:  ~1.6K
Pairings: Eames/Arthur
Rating/Warnings: PG
Author's Note:  Thanks go to [ profile] ravenclaw_wench  who slapped me over the head for some of my more obvious typos. This is a fill for the ever growing [ profile] inception_kink  meme, for the prompt: "Touch deprivation. Arthur is deprived of touch, Eames starts touching him all the time. Arthur doesn't understand why he allows it, or why he secretly even likes/needs it." I could not resist. :D And once again, I fail at writing porn for kink memes. *headdesk*

Summary: It wasn't as if his parents beat him or anything. They were perfectly cordial, in fact.

one hand over the other

Arthur was an asshole. Even he was surprised by the heights his asshole-ishness reached on occasion.  )

1. It's amazing how much I hate driving. Seriously. I need to move to a city that has a proper metro system, which mine doesn't, because the county voted to not be a part of the network. :/

2. My psych professor thinks I'm...well-adjusted. We had to write a paper about our parents' parenting styles, etc, and I wrote mine, literally, an hour before it was due. I spent maybe thirty minutes on it, and I was glossing over a shit-ton of stuff, because, well. She's my psych prof, not my therapist, and I have zero interest into getting into some of the heavier crap with my instructor. But, yeah, she sent me an email and said that she thought I was amazingly well-adjusted, you know, considering. Because she obviously knows me well enough to tell that I handling being screwed over by life. *rolls eyes* But, I did get a 100% on the paper, so I'm willing to move on. :3

3. My Sherlock AU is growing in leaps and bounds, and yet my Inception bigbang is tottering on painfully slowly. I do not think I like this. Not at all. More fic news here.

4. Martin Freeman is awesome.

5. Weekend of Solitude coming up! I am stupidly excited about having thee says to myself. I'm not sure what that says about me.

6. I fool around with the Sherlock promo pic and put it up on dA, but I'm going to put here anyway, just because:

Sherlock and John, Halloween by ~snowdarkred on deviantART

Can you spot what's wrong/different with this picture? :D

ETA: ALSO, my Supernatural Season 5 DVDs yesterday! \o/ Finally! My mom promised to get them for me, like, six months ago. And they're here now!

SON OF ETA: ALSO, so there's this guy that sits next to me in psych (he's sitting next to me right now, actually) who is constantly staring at my laptop screen, and he sometimes comments and so on. Example: He just told me that had many tabs open. Seriously. NONE OF HIS BUSINESS. So I asked him, Why do you do that. He said, Do what? I said, Look at my screen. Why do you do that? He said, Oh, and then spent the next twenty minutes pointedly talking to the chick behind us. \o/ Success! :D

1. I'm waiting for a train.... Well, no, I'm waiting for my friend to come pick me up so that we can go see Macbeth at the Tavern. It's going to be awesome! I was worried, because they sold out before I could buy my ticket, but one of my other friends decided not to go, and I got hers by default. \o/ It's going to be awesome! :D

2. GOOD NEWS. My Inception bigbang? It's FINALLY WORKING FOR ME. I've finally found a concept that's talking to me, and I've got 2.6K so far. Just, you know, 12.4K to go~ Hopefully this'll keep going. The title I'm going with for it is:

and together we bake a layer cake

I think this is going to be THE ONE. *crosses fingers*

3. My room is an absolute wreck. Wow.

4. I wanted to do an epic rant about THAT WAITRESS again, but I don't have it any me at the moment. Just let it be known that she is terrible.

5. I have officially blown my budget for this month. Just, ugh. I have spent far more than I meant to. WTF, I used to be better at money management than this.

6. I think I'm going to write one more Lie to Me/Loker fic, and then I'm going to bow out of the fandom, because the source material is driving me crazy, and not in the affectionate way that Supernatural drives me crazy. It's just so all over the place, and I'm not invested enough in the characters to put up with it. *sigh* I hate to be love-'em-and-leave-'em about fandoms, but really, it's for the best.

7. Is it bad that I had to remind myself not wear something slutty tonight? I mean, I looked in my closet and went, No, wait, I don't want a repeat of last time; I need to find something that covers more skin than exposes it. I don't know that I've succeeded? (Wow, I sound like a giant hobag. I'm not! I've just never understood the concept of modesty! Ack!)

8. It's really fucking cold outside. WAT. WHEN DID AUTUMN HAPPEN? D:

Title: Unstructured Reality
Author: [ profile] snowdarkred 
Word Count:  ~2.2K
Pairings: Eames/Arthur
Rating/Warnings: PG-13, swearing, violence, muffins that are not bought (until the end)
Author's Note:  Much thanks to [ profile] shanachie_quill  for looking this over (despite the fact that we had an extremely silly and intense ten minute debate over AIM about the proper use of commas) - you rock my socks like always, darling. This fic was written because I cannot for the life of me get my damn bigbang fic to work, so I vented my frustrations on poor Arthur's hide. Because I'm a bad person. Dedicated to my real life Eames, Evie, who puts up with my anal retentive bitching on a regular basis. :3

Summary: Arthur won't (can't) tell them anything, because if he does they will know that he is not Eames, and that would be very, very bad for Eames' health. (Or, I Apparently Really, Really Like Having the Bad Guys Tie Arthur Up and Eames Save Him.)

Unstructured Reality


It drove Arthur mad. (Now he can look back and smile, but then all he could think was, I am not allowed to murder a teammate over his fashion sense; it is unprofessional and unbecoming and bad for business.)  )

1. I have no plans this weekend, other than a brief shift at work on Sunday. I rather like that. I traded Saturday next week for Halloween, so should I find a party to go to on the day itself, I can. The only thing I really want to do is sleep and write at least 3-5K on whichever Inception bigbang fic actually starts talking to me.

2. OMG, MY INCEPTION BB IS KILLING ME. I can't decide on what to write, and anything I try comes out wrong! I've written the starts of six different fics, I shit you not, and I am hating it. I don't know where any of it is going, or what I can do to fix it, and it's driving me insane. Just when I think I've worked out what I'm going to do, it DIES. ;_; I FAIL AT LIFE AND ALSO INCEPTION. Watch me as I weep.

3. I am so stupidly obsessed with this video of Joseph Gordon-Levitt singing Bad Romance, I can't even BEGIN to tell you. It's even better when you realize that he changed the French lyrics to something rather naughty: (roughly) I want to fuck you and then I want to fucking leave you/fuck off. And he points out the Hitchcock references! :D IT IS AWESOME AND HE IS AWESOME AND YOU SHOULD BE AWESOME AND WATCH IT.

4. I have pre-ordered the Inception DVD and the Sherlock (BBC) series, because I am a fucking fangirl who fangasms. My bank account, it cries.

5. Okay, so there's this girl, woman, whatever, at work right? And everyone has that one coworker that they just can't stand, right? SHE DRIVES ME INSANE. I used to eat at the restaurant I work at all the time, and I HATED having her, because she is the worst. Waitress. On. The fucking. Planet. She touches everything, is obnoxious, and then is somehow surprised when she gets bad tips. I have a (girl)friend who, every time we go anywhere together, people assuming I'm dating, IDK why. (Why yes, [ profile] ravenclaw_wench , I'm talking about you, Jesus Christ.) Anyway, we went out to eat together, and she treated us worse than usual, and she gave us dirty looks and really, I'm a good tipper. Anyone who regularly waits on me knows this. My flat tip is three dollars no matter how little I order, and I then add a dollar for every ten that I spend. And for once in my fucking life, I tipped someone less than that. I gave her a really, really shitty tip. Because her stupidity? Was really fucking obvious. And it pissed me off.

Anyway, so I now work with her, and she seems to have forgotten about it, but I saw her when the cute lesbian couple with the baby comes in (and they have not, sadly, returned) and I deal with her everyday and -- just no. She calls me babe and baby and sugar and sweetheart, and while I don't mind usually - I rather like it, actually - that's when I actually like the person talking to me. I don't like her one bit, and it comes across as condescending rather than affectionate, which we both know it isn't. It drives me insane. And between her being awful at her job, her being a bitchy waitress, and her constantly commenting on how much I do or don't eat - like it's any of her fucking business that I'm a stick, okay, and I am so fucking tired of people I don't know or like accusing me of having eating disorders I don't have, SAJFIEOA;NFEA;H.


Oh my gods, I did not mean to let that rant get away from me.

(The thing is, I'm actually kind of sensitive about the eating thing because, all through childhood to the present, everyone has something to say about how skinny I am. I've had complete strangers give me the 'It's okay to eat a burger/don't you eat more than salad/don't they feed you, lol/have you considered help speech(es) and it's just. It's one of my hot button issues, okay? I am not even that thin - I weigh a hundred pounds, alright, and I have hips and a sizable bust and all. I eat at least two meals a day and I get my nutritional requirements, and so what if I absolutely hate fast food? It literally makes me sick. And anyway, I used to eat four full meals a day and snacks and so on and WAS STILL HUNGRY, and while my Ten Weeks of Crazy episode kind of trashed my metabolism, I still have days like that.)


Okay, I'm shutting up now. Jesus Christ. Um.

ETA: It's not that I'm not sympathetic to people who DO have eating disorders, it's just - I didn't appreciate being told that there was something wrong with me growing up, because, quite frankly, I got enough of that shit at home, thanks very much. Not the eating disorder bit, but the There's Something Wrong With You bit.

So, I finally picked a plot/idea for my Inception bigbang (OMG I AM SO LAME & LATE, WTF) and I want the title to be in French.

The problem is that I don't speak French.

So, my lovelies, if one of y'all would be so kind as to fess up to some French tongue (er, heh, ignore me) and translate this for me:

it's just a dream, darling, except for all the ways it isn't

PLEASE? I would love you forever and ever and write you fic? (Except that, well, it'd have to wait, because I am determined to churn out at least 10K by the middle of November, and boy, this is going to get interesting, isn't it?)

ETA: According to Google translate, "c'est juste un rêve, mon chéri, à l'exception de toutes les façons, il n'est pas" translates to "it's just a dream, my darling, except in every way, it is not" which is kinda close? IDK, I need help!!!!!

These are some of the incomplete stories sitting on my computer at the moment. I know where most of them are going, but not all, and I just feel like sharing the openings to a few of them to catch what you think. They're for a number of different fandoms; it's almost embarrassing how many I'm involved in. One day, I shall restrain myself. Maybe.

The fics!

Title: Over the Hill
Author: [ profile] snowdarkred 
Word Count:  ~1.3K
Pairings: Eames/Arthur
Rating/Warnings: PG-13, non-graphic, off screen nastiness, vague blood and bad implications
Author's Note:  This is a 'Arthur and Eames meet, don't really get along, get thrown together under distressful circumstances, and then have Certain Misunderstandings' kind of fic. Because I haven't written one of those in a while.

Summary: When they meet (in a hot sunny desert with impossibly complex and towering tents spread as far as the eye could see) for the first time, Arthur shoots him in the head.

I had a dream that I wrote the most amazing Inception fic ever, and it was Arthur/Eames, and everyone loved it, and they left me lots of comments.

And then I woke up.

Fucking reality; now I can't even remember what the fic in my dream was about. >:(
