HERE IS THE THING ABOUT INCEPTION FANDOM & ME

So I have a long-standing thing with dreams, okay, where my dream will be a (relatively speaking) coherent narrative but I will swap sex/gender/identity (sometimes I'm a girl, sometimes I'm a boy, sometimes I'm a girl with a dick, whatever). And in RL, I'm cis-female.

Thus, my problem with Inception fandom - the reason I have read, but not really embraced - is that the dreams are cons but VERY RARELY are they also treated like dreams, excepting cases involving a) death and torture, b) existentialism, or c) BOTH.

It might be skeevy to say, but if I could manipulate the laws and appearance of my physical world? There are three things I would do. THE FIRST THING...okay, the first thing would be tentacle sex, shut up, it is the combination of several major kinks for me. THE SECOND THING I WOULD DO WAS TEST-DRIVE A DICK.

GUYS, I WOULD LOVE TO TRY OUT A DICK. AND A PROSTATE! CAN SOMEONE ELSE FORGE YOUR BODY? COULD YOU HAVE A GUY ACTUALLY DESIGN A BODY FOR YOU IN THE DREAM, SO YOU COULD GET AN AUTHENTIC EXPERIENCE? I FEEL THERE IS NOT ENOUGH RECREATIONAL DREAMING IN THIS FANDOM. I WOULD FILTHILY MISUSE A PASIV TO MAKE ALL OF MY UNSAFE SEX FANTASIES COME TRUE. AND ALSO I WOULD DREAM-ROB A BANK, BECAUSE THAT SHIT LOOKS LIKE A GOOD TIME IF IT DOESN'T END IN DEATH OR JAIL. BLOW SHIT UP! I WOULD SET FIRE TO ALL THE THINGS. I WOULD HUNT DOWN MY PROJECTIONS OF ASSHOLES AND MURDER THEM, LIKE IN THAT SERIAL KILLER MAL FIC, EXCEPT WITHOUT THE CRAZY. IT WOULD JUST BE CATHARTIC. I WOULD PET A LION AND RIDE A WHALE. ZERO-GRAV. ZERO-GRAV ORGY. IF YOU CAN THINK IT, YOU CAN DO IT. I WILL LEAVE YOU WITH THIS: I WOULD, ONE BY ONE, TICK OFF ALL THE SUPERPOWERS.

(FLIGHT TELEKINESIS PYROKINESIS SHAPESHIFITNG INVISIBILITY X-RAY VISION SUPERSPEED LASER EYES WINGS FREEZING SHIT TALKING TO ANIMALS TELEPATHY (EMPATHY IS GROSS, WE'RE SKIPPING THAT ONE) ELASTICITY FORCEFIELDS INVULNERABILITY BREATHING WATER SUPERSTRENGTH PHASING THROUGH SHIT SUPERMAGNETISM COPYING MYSELF ETC ETC ETC, Y'ALL HAVE READ COMICS)

Like, this fandom's great and all, but it's kind of focused on CRIMINALS IN LOVE when I would like it to be CRIMINALS IN LOVE WITH SHAPESHIFTING AND GENDERPLAY/GENDERQUEERNESS. I want A MILLION WORDS about the art of forgery - training; who can do it, who can't, and why; that time with the two layers and the gaslighting plot; the kind of horrible story where Eames has to stay the best because more jobs means more time on the PASIV and only in dreams can he present his most accurate self at any given moment, but too much dreaming alone and without a goal and he's end up just another breathing corpse in Yusuf's basement; the one where they try to teach Ariadne to forge and she's terrible at it, but Saito's a natural, because he's one of the most controlled and self-aware people you'll ever meet (Ariadne been socially conditioned not to think too hard about her own body and her forgeries' proportions shift every time she stops concentrating enough to do anything).

ALSO, there's a throwaway line in a fic about the PASIV not being invented for military use like in every fucking other fic out there, but instead it was invented for DREAMFUCKING and I think that is GENIUS. Because see, there are those fics where it starts military, goes criminal, and ends in horrible forced prostituition, but it would be totally ace if it started as pron/prostitution, went military, then criminal, then recreational again. BASICALLY I WANT EAMES TO HAVE GOTTEN HIS START IN DREAM-PORN AND THEN HAVE DECIDED TO ROCK A LIFE OF CRIME. WITH OPTIONAL MIDPOINT OF HILARIOUSLY CONSULTING FOR THE MILITARY FROM HIS VAST EXPERIENCE OF DUPING AND SEDUCING OLD RICH DUDES.
