Content/Notes: AU: Non-Dreamshare, AU: High School, teacher!eames, teacher/student relationship, phone!sex, dirty talk, implied bottom!arthur, COVID-19 related
Summary: That Eames is even thinking of Arthur in the midst of all this is insane. It’s strange, the things one's brain fixates on when the world falls apart. It had been one of his first thoughts, amidst the bizarre scramble to inventory how much soup he had in the house (Eames doesn’t even like soup) and whether he could still go to the gym (he makes it twice a week if he’s lucky). Eames had sat down at his desk, stunned, and thought, Does this mean I won’t see Arthur again?

But when she does go to bed, Eames comes back out and finishes having his wicked way with Arthur before sneaking out.
In love with age difference fics, and kind of love Eames as a museum curator. Super hot!

Summary: Inspired by a prompt from the Inception kink meme: Arthur is seventeen, and still reluctantly sees a pediatrician. A handsome, British, pediatrician. Who maybe gets a little too handsy sometimes (but he's just doing his job, you know). Contains jailbait!Arthur, misrepresentation of medical processes, and some pretty blatant sketchiness in the consent area.
God this was so hot and gave me all the dirtybadwrong feels while still managing to be surprisingly sweet.

Summary: “Arthur, we’re both grown men who like dressing up in masks and leather. You mustn’t be so serious about everything.”
Or: Cosplayer, Leather Daddy Overcome Subcultural Differences to Find Love.
FABULOUS AU with cosplayer Arthur going to leather-worker/Dom Eames for a costume. Of course, they have amazing chemistry, and thus begins the kinky shenanigans! Crazy hot with some really wonderful characterizations and relationships.

Pairing(s): Arthur/Eames, Arthur/OMCs, background Mal/Cobb, past Arthur/Yusef & Eames/Fisher

Word Count: 93,873
Content/Notes: AU: Non-Dreamshare, AU: Bookstore, AU: Fusion, Notting Hill Fusion, actor!eames, rimming, switching, bottom!eames, mostly bottom!arthur, light D/s
Summary: Notting Hill AU, written for the i_k prompt, "I'm just a girl standing in front of a boy, asking him to love her." Arthur owns a quirky hipster science bookstore. Eames is a world-famous mega-celebrity. Clearly this calls for a meet-cute.
Oh, this fic is just so wonderful! Beautifully written with fabulous characterizations and a connection between Arthur and Eames that just sizzles. There's no small amount of angst, but it makes the ending that much more satisfying when you get there. Plus the sex was seriously, seriously hot.

♥ ♥ Title: Pet
Author: [archiveofourown.org profile] ladyvader
Pairing(s): Arthur/Eames
Rating: Explicit
Word Count: 100,250
Content/Notes: AU: Non-Dreamshare, AU: High School, teacher!eames, student!arthur, teacher/student relationship, first time, bottom!arthur
Summary: AU fic - Arthur is in his final year of high school and finds himself entirely too interested in the new English teacher. Entirely inspired by the Police lyrics ‘Sometimes it’s not so easy to be the teacher’s Pet’.
Oh my goodness there aren't even words for how amazing this is. I have such a student/teacher kink and this is probably one of the most powerful fics I've read in any fandom with this trope. It was funny and sweet and so heart-wrenching in some parts I was tearing up. The characters are so well written and believable and the chemistry between Arthur and Eames just sizzles. The sex at the end was also crazy freaking hot.

Title: The One Where They're Stars on HGTV Series (8 Fics)
Author: [archiveofourown.org profile] earlgreytea68
Pairing(s): Arthur/Eames, past Eames/OMC, background Mal/Cobb, Ariadne/OMC
Rating: Mature
Word Count: 307,125 total
Content/Notes: AU: Non-Dreamshare, AU: Reality Show, AU: Fusion, HGTV Fusion, mostly established relationship, bottom!arthur, halloween!fic
Summary: Have you ever seen "Love It or List It"? In which Arthur is the real estate agent and Eames is the designer.
Okay, so, this series is straight up brilliant. Now, you may not think that nearly 300k or mostly established relationship Arthur/Eames HGTV AU is really necessary, but you would be completely wrong. I love me some home improvement shows, but I don't usually get that invested in the hosts, so I was a little skeptical of this one, but it was wonderfully executed. Arthur and Eames are perfectly characterized here, and Arthur as a real estate agent and Eames as a designer is just amazing. The chemistry and interaction between these two are beyond fabulous, and the whole thing is just SUCH a joy to read. Seriously, I had the biggest smile on my face throughout, and I was laughing out loud almost every other chapter (which is saying a lot). I know it's long, but if you're an Arthur/Eames fan it's totally worth it. This entry was originally posted here on Dreamwidth. Please comment there using OpenID
