I affectionately call this one "LoMCeption". I have been annoying people by talking about it for... possibly a year now? It is a Life on Mars [UK]
fusion, and already it has undergone a few different incarnations. Without an actual word being written. About the only thing that has remained constant is that I wanted Annie in the central, though not necessarily point of view, role.
Tony Crane is the one who wants Sam Tyler incepted. (Hence, 1973.)
Phyllis is like Saito, his inside woman.
Dom = Annie
Ariadne = Chris
Gene is basically Gene, but as a forger in Eames's spot
Ray is basically Ray, but in Arthur’s spot
(Gene/Ray coming in 3, 2, 1...)
Nelson = Yusef (ooh, problematic!)
Mal = Neil
Initially, it was actually supposed to be Dom = Annie, Mal = Sam, Alex from A2A as Ariadne. And they were going to mess with Jim Keats's mind. So, as you can tell, I really have no idea what the hell this story is. All I know is that I want a fusion. Reason(s) for not having written:
Writing neuroses and lack of time.
