 Ok, right, I saw Inception for the third time yesterday, so let's not pretend we didn't know this post was coming.  
Sure, second and third time didn't have that compete I am in awe, refrain from speaking to me feeling that the first time did, but my god I never get bored with this bloody movie. Over and over and you still get different rolls of the dice.

I was pretty, a hundred percent sure I understood the movie the first time 'round, so this time, I really just sat there watching the little details. Like Arthur/Eames.
Yes. Let's cut to my thoughts on Eames and Arthur and why they are secretly married/fucking/have five children/in-love: 

Photobucket


 - The first, most obvious, fact? Have you ever seen two men who look so fine in a bloody suit? No? have you been living under a rock? Let me show you: 

They're not in suits, but they sure as hell do look fine. 

AND LOOK, THE BEFORE PROMISED SUITS. 

- Eames is smart, Arthur is smart and therefore, smart boys should be together.  

- The banter between them is like that of an old married couple. Honestly, they're like my grandparents. They bicker, they almost seemed annoyed with each other and no one gets under your skin like the person you love. There's nothing with any real malice behind their words either. Eames laughs every time they knock Arthur out his chair to test run "the kick"; Arthur doubts whether or not Eames understands a single word that comes out his mouth ("specificity?"). 
It's like this, can't you just picture them paying the shit out of each other over the kitchen table? 

 - "Darling."

- When Arthur is trying to drop the team without gravity, and ties them all together? Yeah, well, HE TOUCHES EAMES THE MOST. Push Eames' shoulder, pulls Eames' leg, drags the team along by Eames' shoes. Coincidence? most likely I THINK NOT. 

 - When the team is in the first level of the dream, the train comes through and the taxi is being shoot at, the first thing Arthur thinks to do is ask Eames if he's alright. Not Fischer, the man who's subconscious they're fighting, not Saito - who along with sitting right next to him, has been bloody shot, but Eames. He doesn't even stop to consider the others until the forger has assured him, that he is, in fact, perfectly alright. 

 - Eames sticks up for Arthur like it's second nature. I don't remember the exact quotes i'm also too lazy to look it up, but when Arthur is ripping into Cobb about not telling them that when they die, they don't return to reality, Eames is right there along side him, nodding his head and speaking what ever the hell he does. 

 - I had another thought here, I'm not sure what it was, but i swear, I did. As [livejournal.com profile] traumlogik so kindly reminded me, with her comment of epic gold, I did, in fact have another point to make. The moment where the boys are going deeper into the third level and Arthur is "putting Eames to sleep". You know the moment i'm talking about, the moment where there's a whole lot of "I will lead them on a merry chase", a tad of "go to sleep, Mr Eames" and a bundle of love. in fact, let's link you to traumlogik and her comment that explain so much better than I. 

I HAVE HOMEWORK TO COMPLETE AFTER ALL THIS MADNESS, SO I LEAVE YOU WITH THIS:

I APPROVE THE SHIT OUT OF THIS COMMENT.

I also love this moment before they go deeper down to the third layer. OH YEAH LET'S ANALYZE THIS.

• Eames is on the floor and pulls up his sleeve, Arthur kneels next to him to put in the IV. He does that despite Eames being perfectly able to do this himself - it's probably just an excuse to touch him and exchange a few words in (almost) privacy before they all fall asleep.

• "Security is going to run you down hard." - "And I will lead them on a merry chase." So much gold in those two lines! I love this little smile on Arthur's face when he says his line, and the way Eames laughs, oh god. He's so fucking in love. They say so much with such few words - in here you have everything ranging from "This is going to be hard, I hope you're ready" to "Is this going to be a problem for you, what with your lack of imagination and everything?" and "You know me, Eames" to "Let me handle this". Idek, it's just such a sweet exchange.

• "Just be back before the kick" - He's so worried. D:

• "Go to sleep, Mr Eames" - I love that he says 'Mr Eames'. Everyone else on the team calls him Eames, always (except Saito, but he's just suave like that), so the 'Mr' coming from Arthur kind of threw me off. It sounds so familiar, so comfortable, and in my canon, it's Arthur's version of an endearment; Arthur's "darling", so to say. I believe I said this before, but it strucks me like those nicknames a married couple would use, calling themselves Mr and Mrs.

I love that under all this bickering, they're so fond of each other. It's all I can see in this scene - their fondness for the other one. Asdfghjkl; ♥♥♥

Also, if we go with fanon and make Eames' totem a poker chip, it would go perfectly with Arthur's loaded die. Just saying. ;)

OH GOD THIS IS SO LONG FORGIVE ME D:

OMG. THIS IS WHAT I FORGOT. THAT SCENE, I KNEW I HAD ANOTHER POINT TO MAKE. I AM ALSO GLAD YOU APPROVE.

The utter love Arthur utters "Go to sleep, Mr Eames" with is completely beyond me. That whole little moment makes my heart a-flutter.

The silent conversation behind their words (OH MY LORD, YOU ARE SO RIGHT). It ranges from everything as'dlfka;dk'ksfa and just oozes pure fucking love.

THE POKER CHIP AND DIE. I see what you did there Mr Nolan. fanon is canon, well, in this case.

LAS;FDLS/KADSAFAD I DO NOT CARE THAT IT IS LONG. IT IS A LONG COMMENT ABOUT ARTHUR AND EAMES, THIS IS OK WITH ME.

I APPROVE OF EVERYTHING THAT HAS HUGE AMOUNTS OF EAMES/ARTHUR

The second time watching, I had to keep myself from saying something like "OH GOD LOOK AT THEM THEY ARE SO IN LOVE", because asdfghjkl. <3 And, I mean, Nolan must've been up to something with those two: He kept the "darling" in there, which was ad-libbed by Tom Hardy, he changed the "Go to sleep Mr Eames" conversation completely (in the script, this scene is between Arthur and Cobb, and there is no bickering, just business), he even gave them both a military and rivalry background. It just sceams LOOK AT US, WE HAVE HISTORY. <3

Oh, oh, and did you catch that Arthur just knows instantly where Eames is? It's when Cobb says that they're going to need Eames, and Arthur replies: "Eames? But he's in Mombasa" He keeps track. ♥____♥

Those two are just too much for me, idek. <3

I CHANGED THE POST AND LINKED TO YOU AMAZING COMMENT. BECAUSE, YES DEAR, YOU EXPLAIN IT SO MUCH BETTER.

I was muttering to my friend about the love in between them until she was even agreeing. I don't think she would know slash if it bit her on the arse.
NOLAN - YOU ARE A CLOSET ARTHUR/EAMES FAN AREN'T YOU? WE ARE ONTO YOU MY FRIEND. I didn't know about the ab-libing on Tom Hardy's part nor the fact about the script change. I knew about the history between them both, and my dear merlin these boys are in love. ♥______________♥

YES, YES, I PICKED UP ON IT. And Cobb didn't even act like it was a surprise, more like "I KNOW YOU KNOW ARTHUR. YOU'VE ALWAYS KNOWN."

They, IDK, are like the new remus/sirius for me; they've completely taken over.

AWWWW THANK YOU, EVEN THOUGH IT'S JUST RAMBLING (BECAUSE THAT'S WHAT I LOVE MOST AT THE MOMENT - RAMBLING ABOUT EAMES AND ARTHUR)

A friend of mine noticed the ~love~ too, and he's gay, so I'm just going to trust him on that (since he has a pretty good sense for that kind of thing). SERIOUSLY, ALL THE SUBTEXT IS THERE FOR A REASON. WE SEE WHAT YOU DID THERE, NOLAN. Aw, Tom Hardy admitted in an interview that the darling was accidental - it just kind of came to him, and then they left it in. They also did a couple of scenes without the darling, but Nolan (who totally ships it) saw that it was good and approved of Tom's improvising. <3 And yeah, I may have bought the shooting script after I saw the movie. *cough* (The dialogue is horribly awkward at times, but idgaf.)

BECAUSE COBB KNOWS. You're right, he's basically saying "So, we need Eames, and I know you know where he is. He probably sends you postcards every other day."

SERIOUSLY. Never was there a pairing I loved as much as them, but then there was Inception AND EVERYTHING CHANGED.

THAT'S OK MY DEAR (IT'S A WIN WIN SITUATION REALLY, BECAUSE I LIKE LISTENING TO PEOPLE RAMBLE ABOUT ARTHUR AND EAMES VERY MUCH INDEED).

Oh course, if he is gay, and notices such things, we shall have to put our faith in him and believe him. SUBTEXT equals BUTTSEX, see how mature and wise i am? YOU CAN'T FOOL US NOLAN. Oh my, Tom Hardy, you are a beautiful man. Really. Feel free to add in a little "darling" whenever you please.

THAT IS SO WHAT HE WAS SAYING. "He sends you hand written letters Arthur, I know, i've seen them."

MAYBE, ONE DAY, SOMEONE WILL WRITE A CROSS OVER WHERE REMUS AND SIRIUS MEET ARTHUR AND EAMES IN A PUB or something.

THAT'S GOOD. AT LEAST I CAN RAMBLE HERE IN YOUR COMMENTS, I FEEL LIKE I'D JUST ANNOY THE SHIZ OUT OF MY FLIST BECAUSE ALL I CAN THINK OF LATELY IS INCEPTION INCEPTION INCEPTION & EAMES AND ARTHUR ARE TOTALLY DOING IT

Yes, yes. A gay man's gaydar never lies, it has to be the truth. And especially Eames comes across as not 100% straight (but that might be because Tom Hardy totally swings both ways, or at least did in the past I read too many Tom Hardy interviews, oh you wonderful man, what are you doing to me). I'm convinced this "darling" totally became a running gag among the cast and suddenly everyone called JGL "darling" in mock British accents. And Nolan was like, "Yeah that's all fine, but we should try to be a bit more subtle about it, so no 'darling' after every line please, all right Tom?" <- TOTALLY HAPPENED.

I can imagine that Eames sends him those dirty postcards, inappropriate pictures of naked body parts with the caption GREETING FROM MOMBASA, and Arthur is terribly embarrassed about it but keeps them anyway. And then Cobb finds a whole pile of those cards and Arthur comes up with ridiculous explanations for why he kept them (because he totally didn't because the messages were rather sweet and charming, not at all, thank you very much). HOLY SHIT someone should write this, I should prompt it over at the kinkmeme.

Perhaps Ariadne is a huge Harry Potter fan and Sirius/Remus fangirl, to an obsessive degree so that there are actual projections of them living a happy life in her subconscious (you know, the happy life they never had in the books...), and Eames totally bonds with projection!Sirius etc. etc. SOMETHING LIKE THIS SHOULD EXIST

THIS IS WHAT MY COMMENTS ARE HERE FOR. THAT'S ALL THEY'VE EVER BEEN FOR. I AM YOUR FLIST, YOU DO NOT ANNOY THE SHIT OUT OF ME, THEREFORE, YOU DO NOT ANNOY THE SHIT OUT OF YOUR FRIEND LIST.

Gay men are always right - this is a fact of life. I have totes read and possibly re-read that interview. Eames is not possibly a straight man. If he were, my mind would combust. I CAN SEE THIS HAPPENING and at some reunion party thing, they will all be how you goin' darling and JGL turns around and is all "we're getting married in the fall."

SOMEONE NEEDS TO WRITE THIS. NOW. they'd all be writen sweetly and beautifully but have these pictures that are the sex. Coob just confronts him with this little smirk and an expression that says "I just won the betting pool".

I say these two ideas need to be prompted. As soon as possible, or i might die.
