sirona_fics: (arthur is a bamf)
Are you back with us yet, LJ?

Reposting the fic I wrote for the [livejournal.com profile] eames_arthur exchange.

Title: Not Shy of a Spark
Gift From: [livejournal.com profile] sirona_gs
Gift For: [livejournal.com profile] vvu
Rating: PG-13
Warning(s): canon character death, descriptions of a dead body and a crime scene (no blood or gore, though, nothing too graphic)
Word Count: ~6,600
Summary: Noir AU. PI Arthur Lake gets called out to what he thinks is a routine case to help out a friend; things get a lot more complicated when he finds out who the victim is and meets William Eames, the person who found the body.
Author Notes: [livejournal.com profile] vvu asked for a Noir AU, with Eames as a conman/thief and Arthur as an uptight detective/policeman. Title comes from "505" by Arctic Monkeys, which is one of my favourite Arthur/Eames songs out there. Massive kudos to Raymond Chandler, whom I tapped for inspiration while I was writing this, and a huge thank you to my fantastic beta [livejournal.com profile] zolac_no_miko for the quick and thorough job! I've made some changes to the final draft; all remaining mistakes are my own.
