Hi. If you're looking at this, it's probably because someone linked either my fic or my guns tutorial to you and you're looking the rest of my journal over.

I'm Mel, a 28 year old returning college student. I'm a fine art major and expect to go on to grad school and spend the rest of my life as a barista.

Currently I write and draw only for the Inception fandom when I do fan stuff, and my favorite pairings are Eames/Arthur and Eames/Arthur/Ariadne OT3, but I'm not really religious about shipping. I have a page up at AO3 if you want to read my fic there, or you can check this list and read it here on LJ.

Since I post a lot of random stuff, I'll make it easier to find my fic by putting up a master list of fic, writing and fanart.

Dream A Little Bigger, Darling - the Inception Fic Writer's Guide to Firearms
So, I've noticed that a lot of fanfiction writers have very little firearms knowledge. That's not really something that I hold against them. Not everyone lives where guns are legal, and not all of the writers with access to firearms actually wish to go out to a range and try some out.

This tutorial is for those folks.

Parts 1, 2, 3, 4

The Fandom Firearms Q&A:
This is a column I'm attempting to write to address specific questions that my firearms guide does not address. If you're interested in having your questions answered, please comment, LJ-message or email them to me, and I'll try to answer them to the best of my ability. Note: all questions will be compiled for future Q&A posts.
#1: Handedness and Firearms Use.
#2: Knives in Gunfights, Backup Guns For Getaway Cars, Guns for Petite Characters.

One-Shot Fics
Mr. Eames’ List, PG - The 50 Things Eames is no longer allowed to do while working on inception.

All Your Love Is Revenge, NC-17 - This is a fic about Eames’ musical taste, Arthur’s apparent lack of musical taste, and what happens when Arthur decides to give Eames a taste of his own Lady GaGa medicine. PWP.

Je me lance vers la gloire, PG - Ariadne likes to observe the people she works with. Sometimes she even draws little portraits of them when she’s waiting for the glue to dry, and this story is about Eames discovering her drawings of Arthur, and about her discovering Eames’ affection for Arthur.

Looking for Diversions – 33 – At the Carlton George, NC-17 - Eames and Arthur are on some pre-job downtime in Glasgow and decide to hit up the Craigslist personals for some no-strings attached sex. Except, one of them answers the other’s advert… and much embarrassment ensues. PWP with a side of character study.

You Can Feel My Lips Undress Your Eyes, NC-17 - A sequel to the above very racy Craigslist fic, covering what actually happens during the Glasgow job. Plotty smut with typically Eamesian genderbending. There will probably be a sequel to this one too.

I'd Move Heaven Behind Those Eyes, NC-17 - I have no idea how the Craigslist fic spawned its own series, but considering there's three fics in that timeline at this point... This is Eames/Arthur, fairly PWP for the series, and um, rather naughty. Read at own risk.

Series Fics
Parlor Tricks, PG-13. - It has been ten months since the inception job. Eames and Arthur perform an extraction for Saito in Singapore, but the subject is not who they originally anticipated it to be, nor is the job as straightforward (or safe!) as it seems. Mostly gen, some slash overtones.
Status: Complete
Parts 1, 2, 3

The French Drop, PG-13 - The Eames And Arthur Executive Protection Hour. Gen with mild slash and het overtones. Sequel to Parlor Tricks
Status: Complete
Parts 1, 2, 3, 4, 5

The Bullet Catch, R - Eames and Arthur finally enact their mission of payback, but to get to their targets they have to go through the Russian mafia first. Sequel to Parlor Tricks and The French Drop.
Status: WIP
Part 1 (Prologue), 2, 3

Fanart
Your Kweh Is The Scene Of The Crime, G - I don't even know, okay? I just wound up drawing the Inception cast as Final Fantasy critters, and then decided to waste about 18 hours coloring it in Photoshop CS5 and Painter XI.
