Good morrow, kittens.

It is ten in the morning, I am updating from my phone and a few feet away from me, my sister is getting her teeth yanked out. Thus, I figured if there is anything to get my mind off the sound of the drilling and the phantom pain in my jaws, it would be posting on LJ. So, hi. (:

I've actually been meaning to post this for a while, I have been working on a fic that we should talk about before we go any further. Well, first things first, it's an Arthur/Eames, established relationship, post-Inception canon fic, wherein Eames is addicted to heroin. The ending product will range anywhere from 8-10k and I almost finished.

I've researched (read: skulked around the meme) other heroin/drug addiction fics in the fandom and found they mostly covered how the addict feels when they get high and their reason for doing so. I wrote this in Arthur's point of view, watching someone you love crumble.

I also wanted to explore the idea of how Somnacin and heroin interact and what that meant for the actual content in the dreams. The amount of nightmare fic, or lack thereof, for this fandom astounds me. I feel like there is so many dimensions which we have yet to explore, and all these corners are yet to be reached and scrubbed clean. Or something of the like. In any case, I am writing this fic as a bit of a character study and a bit as my own personal curiosity. (Why, yes, it is [ profile] everhaunting 's fault, how did you know?)

That being said, I want to warn you. This fic has taken a lot out of me, as a person who has dealt closely and personally with addiction. I've been on both sides of the street and writing this put me in a dark place. I think it might've been just me, letting open the dark space in my head, trying to pour it and spilling it. And I think I need to establish that before I continue, that the fic is pretty angry, a bit dark for me in general, and explores a social relationship, but that in no way means the fic is a moral compass for how to deal with addictions, those who have addictions around you or any variation thereupon. 

I guess what I'm saying is, I'm writing this based on my own experiences and I in no way intend to offend anyone who has had contradicting experiences. I might be overreacting, but I just wanted to make sure we crossed all our T's and dotted all the I's. Don't quote me on this fic, not in the medical aspect, not in the psychological aspect, or any of the factual aspects, really. Don't let it cloud your own judgment, don't read it if you're expecting lighthearted h/c. 

TL; DR:This is the longest disclaimer I've ever written, but basically, this is a dark fic, in almost every aspect, it has crazy amounts of angst, it deals with a very tender subject, and I'm terrified of offending you, so please write if such a thing should occur. Other than it, it will speak for itself, I suppose.

I can hear the dentist finishing up, so I better go. C:
