Steinway Fic: Soft the Drowsy Hours

  • Feb. 27th, 2011 at 7:31 AM
toomuchplor: (Default)
Fandom: Inception
Pairing: Arthur/Eames
Rating: PG for some Eamesian humour
Length: 1122 words

Summary: Arthur’s insomnia often kicks in not when Eames is away but when he’s home.

In the Steinway 'Verse, set around the time of Under the Steinway. I slept almost exactly three hours last night, so this falls under the heading of 'write what you know'. Sigh. But it's sweet and happy?

Steinway Fic: Irresistible You

  • Feb. 20th, 2011 at 9:59 AM
toomuchplor: (rough trade arthur/eames)
Fandom: Inception
Rating: Explicit
Pairing: Arthur/Eames
Length: 2213 words
Summary: Arthur’s face shifts from interrogatory focus to something soft and slack and longing, almost within a bare second.

Warning for slight D/s themes. Set in the Steinway!Verse, a short time after Er, der Herrlichste von Allen, but probably good as a stand-alone too. I thought we needed some blatant porn at this point and handily I had this in my back pocket.

Steinway Fic: Whither Thou Goest

  • Feb. 18th, 2011 at 4:37 PM
toomuchplor: (Default)
Fandom: Inception
Pairings: Arthur/Eames, Mal/Cobb
Rating: Explicit
Length: 11,357 words

Summary: Mal is fairly certain that this moment marks the first time Arthur and Eames have made music together in two years.

I will go wherever you go, and live wherever you live. Your people will be my people, and your God will be my God. I will die wherever you die, and will be buried there.

There are three things that amaze me -- no, four things I do not understand: how an eagle glides through the sky; how a snake slithers on a rock; how a ship navigates the ocean; how a man loves a woman. Such knowledge is too wonderful for me, too great for me to know.

Set in the fall of 2005, in the Steinway!Verse - after Between the Notes and before Under the Steinway.

Read it on AO3 or here on DW. (It's too long for a single LJ post, alas.)

Pairing: Arthur/Eames
Rating: Explicit
Length: 5785 words
Summary: It’s just that Eames honestly never expected Arthur to take Eames up on his offer.

Part of the Steinway!Verse, set not long after First, Do No Harm. Assorted pieces of the Steinway!Verse are collected here on this DW sticky post.

Warnings: Explicit just about covers it, I think.

Steinway Fic: First, Do No Harm

  • Feb. 4th, 2011 at 8:28 AM
toomuchplor: (rough trade arthur/eames)
Fandom: Inception
Rating: Explicit
Length: 3588 words
Pairing: Arthur/Eames
Summary:

Eames draws back again. "Let's see if I can't find this magic spot celebrated in song and legend."

"It's not celebrated in song and legend, it's celebrated in your Manhole collection of porn," Arthur returns reasonably.

Set in the Steinway!Verse not long after "Between the Notes" but probably works just fine as a stand-alone if you accept that Eames is 23 and Arthur is 20. The fact that they're musicians is actually totally irrelevant. Yay for porn?

Steinway Fic: Between the Notes

  • Feb. 2nd, 2011 at 9:36 PM
toomuchplor: (Default)
Fandom: Inception
Pairing: Arthur/Eames
Rating: Explicit
Length: 25,900 words

Summary: "Music is the silence between the notes" ~ Claude Debussy; or, life is what happens when you're busy wishing you could be in a practice room.

Set very shortly after "Ach, des Knaben Augen". And for the first time, I'm gonna say that you have to have read at least that fic for this to make much sense. (All the Steinway!verse pieces are more or less organized here on my DW journal.) Copious linkage to music referenced throughout the text of the fic and also gathered up together at the end in the Notes.

Warnings: Casual homophobia by an old person. Some music kink here, too, of course. And lastly, this fic contains a whole lotta original characters; if this does not float your boat, get thee to -- well. Not a nunnery. Get thee to someplace with fewer OCs?

Read it on AO3 or on DW. Sorry, it's too long to go on LJ in one post. D:

Fic: Reach Out (and Touch Someone)

  • Jan. 21st, 2011 at 4:51 PM
toomuchplor: (rough trade arthur/eames)
Fandom: Inception
Pairing: Arthur/Eames
Rating: Explicit
Length: 2077 words
Summary: Arthur's annoyance evaporates instantly when he sees Eames' face appear on the screen, Eames wriggling to get comfortable on his belly lying on his hotel bed a quarter of the way around the world, somewhere in Paris.

A/N: In the Steinway!Verse (linked below), set before What Need and after Fever Pitch (also linked below). Thanks to [personal profile] lately as always for beta duties and general squeeing. I actually wrote this concurrently with Ach, des Knaben Augen but she made me wait before posting it. (There may in fact be one more fic of the same origin waiting in the wings too.  *cough*)   Yet again I say, you don't need to have read anything else in the 'verse for this to make sense, probably, but it can't hurt. *g* Comments = love, etc.

Thanks also to cobweb_diamond for a very inspirational post.

Other ficlets in this 'verse (where Arthur's a pianist and Eames is a lyric baritone and their love is so lieder) are here (on AO3) or here (on DW) or here (on LJ).

You can read on AO3 if you like.

Steinway Fic: Ach, des Knaben Augen

  • Jan. 19th, 2011 at 7:19 AM

Fandom: Inception
Pairing: Arthur/Eames
Rating: Explicit
Length: 24,152 words
Summary: Being a freshman piano performance major at a prestigious New England conservatory is difficult enough without landing the school's star baritone as your singer, and inevitably, your hopeless crush.

Ah, the boy's eyes
So sweet and clear to me,
and something radiates from them
that wins my whole heart.


With those sweet eyes
He looks into my own!
If he should see his image in mine,
He would surely greet me lovingly.


And so I surrender myself entirely,
Just to serve his eyes,
For something radiates from them
That wins my whole heart.


A/N: While this is set in the Steinway!verse, you really don't have to have read any of the other stories for this one to make sense, particularly as this story is set 10 years before any of the others. Other ficlets in this 'verse (where Arthur's a pianist and Eames is a lyric baritone and their love is so lieder) are here (on AO3) or here (on DW) or here (on LJ). Copious linkage to various songs contained both in the text and at the end of the whole fic. Hopefully everything else is fairly self-explanatory.

Ach, des Knaben Augen (on DW due to length)

You can also read the fic on AO3 if you like.

Wherever you read, comments are love.

Just so you know, I've totally gotten my beta's permission to post this as a fic teaser. Which means she thinks she'll be done sooner rather than later.

Sooooo.... coming soon, the as-yet-untitled fic that features this guy:
Photobucket

My beta also bids me tell you that it was not my choice to defile this gorgeous jailbaity photo by using Papyrus 60 pt font. You see, this poster is designed by Eames in the fic and a) it's the year 2000 and b) well, *Eames*. 'Nuf said?

Fandom: Inception
Pairing: Arthur/Eames
Rating: NC-17
Length: 2,592 words
Summary: This isn't an old theory assignment; that much was clear from the instant Eames pulled it out, folded unevenly, from where it had been pressed between the pages of Thayer's dreary Beethoven tome.

A/N: For [personal profile] lately , who seems to have strange powers of persuasion and who somehow also writes academic papers whilst I IM porn at her.

Past ficlets in this 'verse (where Arthur's a pianist and Eames is a lyric baritone and their love is so lieder) are here (on AO3) or here (on DW) or here (on LJ). Don't say I never linked you nuthin'.

Also, for edification should you wish it or require it:

Fic: Fever Pitch

  • Jan. 11th, 2011 at 3:12 AM
toomuchplor: (Default)
Fandom: Inception
Pairing: Arthur/Eames
Rating: PG at most
Length: 1184 words
Summary: Arthur will be very sorry indeed when Eames dies of ebola and syphilitic psychosis in their conjugal bed.

Author's Notes: Written as an insomnia-driven chat!fic at [personal profile] lately's prompting.  In the Steinway!verse where Arthur is a pianist and Eames is a singer and they are awesome musicians together and sometimes apart as well.  Could be before or after Under the Steinway, it doesn't even matter.  Also, I have no Inception icons.  Shut up.  I'm still in denial even though this is my third fic in the fandom.

It is *such* a snow day today.  Please note that I say this as someone who lives in a climate where actual 'school is cancelled' snow days are about once a decade, not because we don't get snow, but because we get so damn much that it takes a huge blizzard to defeat our army of graders and plows and sanders.  (If you don't know what a grader or sander is, you are not a true Canadian.  I'm looking at you, West Coast.)  Anyway, the snow banks are waist-high and we've gotten about 15 cm (6") with 10 or 15 more to come.  The roads are ridiculous.  Thank goodness it's a non-working weekend and my only excursion today was getting out of the way of my house cleaner for two hours in the Starbucks down the snowy road.  Also, I love my snow tires, they're the best invention ever.

Anyway, I'm snugged in with veggie-bean soup made from scratch with no recipe.  It turned out more like stew because I kept finding more vegetables to add and my soup pot got too full.  I'll thin it out as the stew/soup gets eaten up over the next four or five days.  I don't know why I cook so rarely when I like doing it so much.  Actually, I do know, I hate chopping things but I hate frozen things with equal fervour.

Does anyone want a cozy snow day/night ficlet?  SGA or maybe even Inception or Glee or something?  Prompt me and maybe the muse will strike!  That would be fun.
