Ariadne/Arthur/Eames is the non-canonical relationship between Ariadne, Arthur, and Eames in the Inception fandom.


Examples Wanted: Editors are encouraged to add more examples or a wider variety of examples.

Ariadne/Arthur/Eames is by far the most popular Inception threesome, likely because it combines Arthur/Eames (the fandom's juggernaut ship) and Ariadne/Arthur (the second-largest pairing overall).

Common Tropes & Fanon

  • Post Canon - Because we see Ariadne's introduction to Arthur & Eames in the movie (and thus pre-canon fic has to be AU), most Ariadne/Arthur/Eames works take place directly post-canon.
  • Hurt/Comfort - Many fanworks explore the characters dealing with the negative effects of working in dreamshare.
    • Some focus on Ariadne's sudden transition from an architecture grad student to an international criminal at risk of being shot and killed.
    • Some explore the possibility that long-term somnacin use suppresses natural dreams and/or causes nightmares.
  • Mentor Fic - Building on Ariadne's interactions with both Arthur and Eames in the movies, many fanworks show the men continuing to mentor Ariadne after the Inception job.
