Title: The Deception Curve
Pairing: Arthur/Cobb, implied Yusuf/Eames
Warnings: I want to say it's possible that this will (hopefully) be better upon second read, but--YMMV? :D
Word count: ~18,800
Summary: There's very little Arthur trusts in the dreamscape, and he never thought he'd have to take himself off that list.
Artist(s): The ever-amazing ciudad. Honest-to-god, it is entirely likely I would have given up on this story way, way early in the game if ciudad hadn't been there tempting me with her gorgeous, unbeatable art. She is fantastic beyond the telling of it, you guys, and there are no words that can do her talent or her amazing, giving, TIME-CRUNCH-PRODUCING SELF justice. You should all run (like the wind, bullseye!) to see the rest of her stunning, stunning artwork here. And then slather her with all the love she deserves. ♥___________♥
This story would not have been possible without paitac, who was generous enough to first bid on me in the help_pakistan auction, and then to let me drag my feet with the writing of her fic half a fucking year to get to where this story is today. YOU ALREADY KNOW HOW I FEEL ABOUT YOU, BRELLAU, I HOPE YOU LIKE THIS.
