AU ➝ Arthur/Eames (Inception): innamoramento
I never chose it but this is here. Love, death maybe but suspending time for a word. Everything dilates and gives in to everything and this here. All of his being imposes on myself. Finding a echo at last.
2012. Arthur just proposed to his beautiful girlfriend which accepted. They’re preparing the wedding for next July. Everything seems perfect to him and he couldn’t ask for more happiness. But then, on a party of a friend, his eyes met a stranger’s ones. He’s sure they never met before but it feels like a punch in the stomach and he can’t tear his eyes away from him. The same seems to go to the other guy which quickly comes to him. They look at each other for a very long time, without any words, none needed. Then the stranger speaks with the most delightful and richest accent Arthur ever heard : “Do you remember too?”
987 BC. Eames as the son of the village’s chief never really looked at the young and weak orphan named Arthur. Then one night, at the winter solstice, his eyes fall on him and he feels incredibly attracted to him. He tries to forget him, sleeps with girls willing to marry the future chief but soon he realizes that he can’t continue that way. Arthur hesitates. The gods forbid this kind of love and since he’s an orphan, he knows that one day he will be the Chosen One. Either to become the next druid, either to be sacrificed for war. They succombed to their love but keep it secret. Until one day, just before a very important battle against their most powerful ennemies, Eames stumbles on Arthur sacrificed.
