This was so much fun! By which I mean that the panelists were insightful and articulate and really enjoyable to listen to (because wow I fucking sucked ldk;gahg I don’t want to draw attention to all the ways in which I sucked but let’s just say that I got booted from chat, literally forgot my own train of thought, and generally had no idea what I was doing jkfdklghd;lkga okay I guess I just drew attention to all the ways in which I sucked)
BUT SERIOUSLY, THE DISCUSSION WAS SO AWESOME :DDD ♥

INCEPTION FANDOM, COME ONE COME ALL TO UNCAFE.NOTQUITEROYAL.NET!
This is the fandom cafe that we’ve been talking about for quite a while; I’m really very sorry for the lateness, it is entirely my fault and I have nothing to blame but my terrible reading comprehension skills. But thanks to the generous bookshop, IT’S HERE NOW!
It is a general all-purpose Inception fandom cafe where we can hang out together and be pals, intended to be very low-key and welcoming. You don’t have to be on all the subforums writing 10k essays on limbo logic— just come on over and hang out on the off-topic board and talk about the face you found on your toast this morning, anything is fine :D
(I’m also very very sorry about the confusion you are probably feeling right now as you are thinking, wait, didn’t hesinmombasa just open an Arthur/Eames forum? The answer to this is YES, and it is my fault for 1. not making it clear that another forum was underway, and 2. not realizing that Un Cafe was ready to go. But because of restrictive host server policies, we agreed that it would be helpful to all move to Un Cafe, where our pornographic content can be as pornographic as it pleases!)
SO HOPEFULLY THAT OBNOXIOUSLY COLORED WEIRD-ASS DOODLE CAUGHT YOUR EYE AND NOW YOU HAVE UNCAFE.NOTQUITEROYAL.NET OPEN IN ANOTHER TAB. WHAT? YOU DIDN’T HEAR ME THE SECOND TIME? UNCAFE.NOTQUITEROYAL.NET, FOR GOD’S SAKE, GET A MOVE ON

There can never be enough inanimate object fics

Fics that will never be written, part 7: Arthur is Google+. Eames is not having an optimal user experience.

"But I don’t understand," cried Eames, "why can’t I just display an uploaded avatar? Why do I have to always be showing my face???

"BECAUSE— BECAUSE OF REASONS!" yelled Arthur.

[…]

"WHY ARE THERE SIXTEEN WAYS TO ACCIDENTALLY SLIP GOOGLE MY PHONE NUMBER BUT ZERO WAYS TO GET FOLDERS TO DISAPPEAR OFF THE HOME PAGE OF THE NEW GOOGLE DRIVE??!" Eames spluttered, face purple with rage.

BECAUSE LOGIC IS FOR LOSERS, EAMES!" Arthur shrilled.

IT’S OKAY, TROY! THE INCEPTION FANDOM DOESN’T REALLY GET IT EITHER!! WE BLAME CHRISTOPHER NOLAN

We got Inception we just don’t get how AMAZING IT IS ALKAJFLJFDS; I FALL MORE IN LOVE WITH IT EVERYDAY :’)

AW WELL NOW I JUST LOOK LIKE A DICK .__. I mean the clusterfuck that is limbo logic or synchronized kicks aside, it is pretty frustrating to realize that we have basically no reference point to understand — on a basic level — how dreams are created. What does it mean to hold an architectural layout in your mind? How do you recall an entire city all at once? What does it mean to FORGE? Does Eames just THINK ABOUT BEING SOMEONE ELSE, REALLY REALLY HARD? And how is it a good idea to consistently give Arthur the job of dreaming levels when, as point, he is also consistently the most likely to GET SHOT (having Nash do it in The Cobol Job made so much more sense, except then Nash also had to run around distracting guards— shouldn’t they have a designated dreamer to just hold the level together in relative safety!) I mean I love the movie too — though I love the fandom a lot more — but honestly I don’t get it…!
