[OOC] HOW'S MY DRIVING

You know the drill. Constructive criticism please, stuff I can use and discuss. I appreciate feedback. :)

[Locked to the Dream Team]

Eames. I'm making a trip to see you. We need to speak in person.

Ariadne, I hope you're making yourself comfortable.

Arthur, get her working on paradoxes.

[A note stuck to Arthur's desk:] We may need a chemist. Start looking into it.
It's too late.

It's too late.

She won't...

She won't even listen.

It's like she can't even hear what I'm telling her.

It's happening all over again and I can't stop it.

[3] Private Entry

Possibilities:

Worldhop?
-Find out more information about this. How far can one go? Is it possible to "worldhop" into dreams?
-If it is possible, what then? Probably would be best to contact self for preventative measures.
-If it isn't, then would it be






This is...

I don't know.

If I can't reach... myself in the dream, then what's the point? It'll be done.

And after that... she didn't listen the first time.

Why should she listen the second?

I can't do this again.

I can't go through this again.

I... need to try.

If I don't try, I'll... never forgive myself.




Again.

[2] Queries

Arthur, Eames. Are you back to normal yet?


[Locked to Corinthian ver. 2.0]

We should talk. We... never finished our conversation.

[1] The Dream (With Mal and Cori)

In his dream, he was standing alone on a beach, staring out at the ocean.

Inexplicably, there was an elevator several hundred feet away. But then, this was a dream.

There was no one in sight, though he knew that she was close by. Walking with the children on the beach. That's what he remembered. That's how it was supposed to go. They would be back soon.

But for now he was alone, staring at the waves, trying not to let himself be overcome by the thoughts and emotions that pushed at him like the incessant wind whipping through his hair. Try as he might, though, he could not keep his dour mood from affecting the weather.

There was a storm coming in.





((OOC: I'm thinking post order as follows: Cori, Dom, and then Mal once she shows up. Whenever that is.))

Current Characters: Radical Ed, Yoruichi

Character: Dominic Cobb
Fandom: Inception
Character Notes:
History: As with all Inception characters, most of Cobb’s history is only hinted at, but there are a few things we can assume based on said hints. For instance, in the time before the events of the movie, Cobb was an architect, both in reality and in dreams. It’s mentioned he was very good at this, but was forced to stop due to interference from Mal, his wife. More on that in a minute. Cobb was married to a lovely woman named Mallorie (Mal for short), and they explored the dream world together, and went as deep as you can go into their shared subconscious, into what is referred to as Limbo.

They spent years there. A lifetime. They built their world several times over, and ruled over their lonely world. Okay that was overly poetic, but you get the idea. Eventually, Cobb began to crave reality, but Mal had forgotten what reality was. Cobb wanted to leave with her, so he planted the idea in her head that her world was not real, and the only escape was death, so that they would wake up in reality once more.

So they escaped. There was a train involved. But the idea had changed Mal, and she began to believe that the real world wasn’t real, and the only escape was death. Cobb tried to convince her otherwise, but the idea was too deeply implanted in her, and he couldn’t keep her from ultimately killing herself. Cobb, under suspicion of killing his own wife, was forced to flee the country, and take on illegal work: the extraction of thoughts from people’s dreams.

EVENTS OF THE MOVIE TAKE PLACE. I.E., failed extraction from Saito, Cobol getting SUPAH MAD, Saito hiring Cobb and Arthur to perform Inception, the formation of the Dream Team, and the ultimate success of Inception and Cobb’s being able to return to his children and finally letting Mal go.

Did he wake up? Was it all a dream? IDK IT’S A MYSTERY but I like to think he was awake at the end. That’s my opinion.

Personality: Cobb is the sort of man who keeps his problems and his issues to himself. That really created a problem after Mal’s death, because he couldn’t let her go. He clung to his memories of her and their children, and his memory of her was so strong and so important to him that it took on a life of its own. Mal haunted him. She invaded his subconscious, and the dreams he shared with others for his work. And the Shade was insistent that Cobb should join her in Limbo. Forever. So she got in the way of everything. DANGEROUSLY. But whenever Cobb was confronted about it, he claimed to have it under control, or at least that he was working on it, fixing it. No one knew about the extent of the problem, not even Arthur, who worked closely with Dom every day. However, Ariadne discovered that he did not have it under control, and really he was in big trouble. Cobb didn’t want her to know. He didn’t want anyone to know. It was his problem. No one else’s. But dream sharing made it other people’s problems. But he could not let her go. He felt immense guilt about her death, and missed her and his children terribly, and it showed itself through his subconscious additions to the dream share.

Aside from his problems, Cobb is a reasonable guy. He’s serious, but able to lighten up and banter occasionally, when the mood calls for it. He’s focused, and when he has a job, he will get it done, and get it done right. He’s dedicated. He’s loyal. He’s also committed to getting back to his children. He will do anything to get back to them again. There is nothing in the world he wants more than to be with his children again. Well. Maybe have Mal with him in reality again, but that’s not going to happen.

Additional Links: wiki, which has like. Less information than my app.

First Person (entry type): Every time we talk she asks me if I miss her. She tells me she loves me, that she wants me with her. That I made a promise to her. That the only reality is hers. And to be honest, it’s getting harder and harder to tell the difference. If I didn’t… if James and Phillippa weren’t waiting… would I ever leave? Sometimes I think I shouldn’t go back in, but the only way to get home is to do jobs, and the only jobs I can do are Extraction jobs, and the only way to do Extraction is to go in the dream, and she’s always there.

I can’t let her go.

Third Person: Cobb blinked and looked up at the sky. It was raining. Probably Arthur’s fault. He was the dreamer this round, after all. He flipped up the collar of his coat and walked across the street, squeezing his way through a crowd of people into a building. Shaking the rain off of his coat, he surveyed his surroundings. He was in a large lobby, with a receptionist directly ahead, writing something down as she nodded and spoke on the headset. People were constantly entering and exiting the building, brushing past Cobb with little regard for his existence. He nodded. Good. So far they had gone unnoticed.

Catching a glimpse of Arthur out of the corner of his eye, Cobb strode up to the receptionist and leaned on the counter, smiling at her. Her gaze flickered up from the phone, and she smiled back. Covering the microphone, she mouthed, “be with you in a moment,” and went back to her call. Cobb nodded and turned, keeping an eye on the lobby. He froze. Two children were crouching in the corner of the lobby, their backs turned to him. From the other side of the room, Arthur tracked his gaze, then looked at Cobb, and shook his head.

Behind him, the receptionist said, “Sir? How can I help you, sir?”

Quickly turning again, Cobb smiled. “Yes, I’m here for a meeting with Mr. Browning.”
