    Summary

    so i wait for you like a lonely house
    till you will see me again and live in
    me. till then my windows ache
    -- Pablo Neruda

    Life is not full of grand gestures. Life is not full of dramatic exists and entrances or perfect camera angles or explosions. Life for someone like Arthur, is like constantly feeling like a secondary character in his own storyline. That's not anyone's fault but his own because Arthur is Arthur, a protagonist here (and probably an antagonist as well because he can be). This is a story about Arthur, who happens to love people and who happens not to love them. But the point is, this is a story about Arthur who doesn't know it's a story about him. This is story about finding out what it means to be a hero to the right people, what it means to know yourself and, by accident, to let other people learn to know how to love you.

    Arthur is figuring his shit out.

    Summary

    Cobb wasn't always known as the greatest extractor in the business. In the early days of his criminal career he had to fight to gain respect not only from clients, but his fellow extractors.

    When Columbia Industries hires him to sell out one of those fellows, he chooses to walk the dangerous line between completing the job as a snitch and maintaining his honor among the thieves. With Mal's death still too fresh in his mind and struggling with a cantankerous new team member, not even the ever-dependable Arthur is enough to help Cobb finish this job smoothly.
