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] and Inception 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.

As cool as the entire idea is--which is to say, very--my favorite part is that you have Annie as Dom. It'd be so easy to make her Ariande or another one of the cool but peripheral characters, and I love that you want to put her front and center.

Thank you! I am glad I am not alone in wanting this fic. I adore Annie, but I never, ever write her enough. During my numerous moments of thinking about this fic, she's always been the most important character. In the initial idea, it was going to be from Alex's perspective. Then when I thought I'd do this for Reel_LoM (which doesn't look like it's happening this year, given not too many people were thrilled about the prospect), A2A characters were phased out. I think what I really need to do is come up with an actualfax plot.

As someone who's never actually watched A2A (I'll get to it someday! But Sam ;_; Strangely, I have been motivated to watch it recently just because I saw a pic spam of Shaz and she is adorable, oh my god. I've not a clue what her character is like, but I like the cut of that hair.) I support the decision to phase out those characters. Actualfax plot is good, but do you really need it? Yes. Yes, I guess, but I still hate plot and completely understand why you don't have one. What's the opposite of a plot bunny? A world building bunny? I've got loads of those hopping around my feet. Sometimes it's more fun to have the world than to play around it in.

Shaz is a very good reason to watch A2A! As is the Alex & Shaz friendship. Though the writers did do a couple of very annoying things with her, she was awesome in many ways.

See, this would need a plot for the worldbuilding to come out? Ugh. :D

I would definitely read the shit out of that. I like the correlations and that it seems to have nothing to do the juggernaut pairing of the Inception fandom, which I utterly loathe and reject.

OOPS! Reading comprehension fail, but I still think it would be better
than 99.9 of what's been done for Arthur/Eames.

I was joking about Gene/Ray, don't worry. I don't loathe and reject Arthur/Eames, but I am utterly bemused by it.
