the_water_clock: abstract painting (Orange and Yellow 1956)
Author: Clio
Title: Sustenance, Merriment and Cheer
Pairing: Yusuf/Ariadne
Rating: NC-17
Summary: Ariadne is a designer who's hired by general manager Cobb to create new games for Saito's Las Vegas casino. She and Yusuf, the genius molecular gastronomist who oversees the casino's world-class restaurants, become fast friends and might be on their way to something more. But then billionaire philanthropist Robert Fischer swoops in and seemingly sweeps Ariadne off her feet. Is Ariadne actually underwhelmed by Robert's life of glamour, as Mal suspects? Can Arthur and Eames get Yusuf to declare himself to Ariadne through his food? And what does Danny Ocean's crew have to do with any of this?
Warning: (skip) No warnings apply.
Length: 18,000 words
Notes: Written for [livejournal.com profile] inception_bang! Yusuf's menu descriptions based on those at Alinea in Chicago. Something of an Ocean's 11 crossover, but really more that some of the Ocean's gang make special appearances. It is Vegas, after all.
Thank you SO MUCH to [personal profile] earlofcardigans for the awesome beta and to everyone who cheered me along. And very, very much thanks to [livejournal.com profile] ginevrawp, who is not only an amazing artist but a fantastic collaborator whose enthusiasm made so much difference (and who is responsible for the Argentinian dish Yusuf cooks). Please do check out her art because it's amazing.

I'm warning you: I'm not a very adventurous eater. )
