“Arthur, you've rung me at 2:30 in the bloody morning from Soho where you appear to be on a street corner and shirtless, possibly drugged.

The Origins 'verse Series (Military Backstory) - Arthur/Eames unless otherwise noted - updated September 2011

Exploring Arthur and Eames' backstory in the military where they each lead an elite unit in the dream-sharing trials. The Powers That Be would prefer to keep the participants in the dark, but Arthur and Eames find each other, fall in love, and change dream-sharing forever.

In reading order:

Origin Stories (PG-13)
The story of how Eames and Arthur meet is one of the great legends of the dream-sharing profession.

In it, there's a dark alley, a foreign country, a bar, a punch in the face, a loaded die, a poker chip, a three-piece suit, and a kiss. Not necessarily in that order. And not necessarily all the time.

Finders Keepers (NC-17)
From the beginning of their relationship, Eames has always been the one to find Arthur. A story in which Arthur is kidnapped, Eames is a hopeless romantic, the past informs the present, and true love conquers all.  Also Moose and Squirrel.

Training Days (PG-13)
Training days in the dream-sharing program are not without incident. Sometimes it seems like it's one damn thing after another.

A Strong Heart and a Nerve of Steel (NC-17)
Recovery is a slow process, but a road trip to Las Vegas can solve a lot of problems. Almost as many as it causes.

At least two more stories to follow-up, but each of the above is complete in and of itself.
