Still ostensibly working on that Arthur/Eames fake boyfriends fic buuuuuut....

I saw this photo on StumbleUpon yesterday:

It made me immediately think of Arthur and Eames's military past. Like...backstory? Anyone? Am I mad? y/n?

Also a couple of drive-by recs:

The one where Arthur has to pretend really fast and Eames's turn at doing the same by [livejournal.com profile] helenish. Like...guys. You MUST. MUST. read these. It is everything the fake-boyfriends trope was meant to be. Do you guys know about Plato's cave theory/metaphor? That the real world is filled with imperfect things, pale reflections of an ideal that we can only know through imitations, like only seeing shadows on a cave wall. These fics? They're not the shadows--they're the real deal. Fake Boyfriends Trope, undiluted, as it were. Yes, they're both that good. GO. READ. BE MERRY.

I've had something like five or six different roommates in the past two years (not at the same time) and I am consistently amazed by how the same dumbasseries (not a word but go with me for a bit, you'll see why I needed it) keep cropping up. I am compiling this useful list of things that will make living with other people who are not family or spouses so much easier for everyone. They're simple rules. Common-sense, even.

The Rules To Living Together When You Don't Bone Or Share Relatives )

Sorry, needed to get that off my chest and--as I probably made clear--I don't want to have a rage black-out with an actual roommate. The internet is a much safer place for blowing off steam.

PS - How mean is it that the roommate in question is making my week awful when I have prelims in five days? I mean, really. Wait till next week. I will deal with your dumbassery next week.
