Welcome to another edition of Awesome Fanfic Monday. This time I picked a story about one of my favorite on screen bromances; Arthur and Eames from Inception.
One of the many things that I enjoyed about that movie was the bickering between those two characters. I would happily watch a sequel if it were just Arthur and Eames stuck in an elevator with Arthur having a panic attack and Eames pushing every one of his buttons (hey, may I should write that fanfic…). The fanfic for this week is called Facebook by pretend-to-care.
This is another one shot story. The concept is that Arthur occasionally uses a Facebook account he created as a way to research potential marks. Eames discovers this and one night Arthur forgets to log out of his Facebook account. Eames sees this opportunity to totally mess with his friend and does so in a hilarious way. I found myself laughing out loud many times while reading this story.
The writer for this story, pretend-to-care, does a great job with the dialogue between these two characters. I can easily picture Arthur and Eames bickering to each other the way they do in this story. Also the specific things that Eames does with Arthur’s Facebook account is too damn funny and something I could definitely imagine happening. I love the fact that the majority of fan fictions written for Inception are about the friendship between these two characters. Obviously there is something undeniable about a good old fashioned bromance, especially when it has an odd couple vibe to it. If you enjoyed Inception and in particular the delicious tête-à-tête between Arthur and Eames than you will most certainly enjoy the shenanigans that occur in Facebook.
