Such an awesome idea! That their 'history' is in projections, not with each other. I love how you played with them :-) And such a good kiss <3

Also, it made me smile when I saw your Christina Hendricks icon in the comments, because it when I read this line he adjusts the forgery into a little blonde in an emerald green dress., I totally thought of Christina Hendricks in this photo, except blonde :-D

Oh, wow. That was such a genius move to have them meet projections of each other first! The whole fic was awesome and I really enjoyed it. Thanks for sharing this! :)

How much do I love this! Having someone "meet"/fall in love with a photo/image/diary (or in this case, projection) of someone else before actually meeting them is such a romantic concept, one I personally adore, and one that's PERFECT for this fandom. Not only that, but you've executed it gorgeously. I'm gonna love re-reading this, <3.

Oh, man, I LOVE this. I love that they first met each other as projections and they liked each other and then Eames was all AAAAH and pulling pigtails and, god, the ending! Just gorgeous.

I'm really, really pleased you like! I'm just glad that I could do well by them in a fic!

Eames wonders what Cobb’s projection of him is like. He then wonders why Cobb had both of them meet the other in a dream.

My absolute favourite line because it sums up this perfectly. And the kissing at the airport, oh wooow. Really loved this! :)

I've had to read this story several times just to be coherent enough to comment because this? Is my favorite fic in the fandom. You know just how to tug at the heartstrings (projection!Arthur telling Eames he'll never have the real Arthur and Eames believing that), make me wibble at the sweetness (the gifts! ♥♥♥♥), then give a pay-off that makes me melt (OMG THE KISSES ::FLAILS::). I also love thinking about all the presents they still have to give each other. In conclusion, beautiful and perfect from start to finish, and I know I'll be coming back to this one in the future. Thank you Mal & Cobb & andrealyn! ;P

Andrealyn! I'm so thrilled to see you in inception fandom! (ahem, I used to kinda stalk you in st:reboot... *waves and tries to look innocent*) and this was just so perfect... "the postcards and gifts stolen, but never sent" was such a nice touch and always absolutely love the idea of losing yourself in projections and losing your grip on reality, because that is a very real danger that the movie addresses and which you flesh out so beautifully... the pun "man of my dreams" is cute, but just wondering, would "man from my dreams" be more accurate and sound less rom-commy? heh, I've been re-reading this and thinking about it too much, so now I'll just tell you how amazing you and your writing are and shut up :D

♥ I totally get around in fandoms (and I'm not quite done in ST Reboot because I had, at last count, about six stories to finish yet?)

Thank you so so so much for reading! And Eames is secretly a bit of a romantic at heart, and Arthur is, very sadly (and not sadly at all) the man of his dreams in all his wanton suited perfection and imperfection.

This is one of my favorite fannish conceits, falling in love with someone before actually meeting him/her. Thank you so much for doing it justice.
Just perfect.

Thank you!

Holy holy holy shit. I have hold back all this time for nothing. Another viewing sent me succumbing to looking for fellow shippers. And the FIRST fic I read just kick me into the abyss of this <3. Thank you for making me realise once again resistance is futile.
