Summary: Or, "on the tip of the tongue." Arthur meets Mal first. He inherits Dom, after. Everything else is on him.

Cover

There is no podfic presently available for download.
Only the art was submitted in time for the challenge.

Artist's Notes: The image that immediately came to mind for me, over a year after reading this story, was that of dream!Arthur’s blue sneakers, which were left in a Japanese house with train tickets inside. Shortly thereafter, in the dream, Arthur and Eames end up in a lush sounding garden. So, that was the image I set out to recreate here. Relatedly, next time I want to take a picture for a podfic cover, someone remind me that I should actually FIND some sneakers that are the right color, rather than grabbing the purple ones I already have and going “oh, I can just photoshop that”. It’s a PAIN XD (All those blades of grass!)

Hey Bessyboo, I hope you are trackign this post because tehre's no other links given to leave you feedback, and I want to tell you your cover is awesome.

First, I love lvoe that you took your own sneakers in photo for this, so you could palce them exactly like you wanted. My initial reaction to seeing thepicture (after "nice colour choices!") was "that's a perfectly found stock photo". Ahaha, creating our own will do that. =D So I love that, and you did a great job on changing the colour - grass and hair and anything strandy like that is EVIL - and it really doesn't show! From there, it's very cool how you cut out part of the title to push it back behind the ticket in a foreground-bg play adding depths.

Next, the colours! They are bright but not as saturated as we could think at first glance, and combined with the B&W of the characters contrast nicely. It's a great representation of the relationships going on in the text next to what we know from the canon. I'd love to ilsten to the podfic to see how this might specifically relates to this interpretation of the text, too, if there's further links we're missing.

I'm wondering if the choice of font was linked to the reader's voice for this, too, if you got to listen to a few in-progress versions while making this (I know that the time I posted only a cover for this challenge I *had* heard half the fic and it had been enough to make the art). Speaking of fonts - I like all 3 (I think?) used, and where you placed those elements, even though it might make it hard to read the names on small view. I like how it encourages my eye to follow along the shoes.

Last, you are brilliant for having the characters look at each other across their frames in a meaningful manner. Seriously. That's awesome choice of pictures and framing.
