    Summary

    Gotham is healing, and John Blake has been left with a legacy. Nothing in his life seems to fit quite right: not the suit he's been left, not his new role with the Wayne Home for Children, and certainly not Jim Gordon's daughter. But if he wants to make it through this, he's going to have to learn how to balance them all and find his own way of being a hero.

    Summary

    Ariadne always seems to be reenacting other people's stories. After inception, school is too safe and extraction too risky; what turns out to be just right is a new career as a consultant in dreamsharing research with neuroscientists. But maybe that isn't right either. And Arthur draws her into dreaming and out of her safe, familiar life, and Eames drifts in and out of her life with equal parts revelry and revelations, but she doesn't want to be her namesake and be abandoned or saved. She wants to be the one finding her own way through the maze, the one to sail off into forever. If she plays her moves wisely she just might get everything she ever wanted.

    Ariadne came to realize that Arthur's taste in drinks was not only an effective barometer of his mood, it was also an astonishingly accurate forecast of how he would act once he'd downed a few.

    Summary

    They stand on a rooftop and she draws him three mazes. They drink coffee at a street cafe she doesn't recognize. And he tells her that they're dreaming. The first thing Ariadne thinks is that it really is like a Pensieve, being dropped into the middle of someone else's world without warning. The second thing she thinks is that it's like Legilimency when it's working properly, really working and you can see inside someone's head as clearly as if you'd opened a window and peered inside.
