Not so much a cross-over as a fusion, but it's one of those things that if you know and love Winnie-the-Pooh, you're going to laugh extra hard. The team is doing a job for Disney, and their best strategy is to go into a dream of the Hundred Acre Wood and let the dream assign them to be characters ... Rabbit, Eeyore, Piglet, etc. Okay, so it sounds like crack fic - I know - but the thing that makes this story extraordinary is that it's not just that.
Yes, the premise is absurd, but the personalities of the beloved Winnie-the-Pooh characters fit so well
with the Inception team. There are laugh out loud moments - Arthur/Rabbit's obsession with carrots (and pot) is hilarious. There are moments that are absolutely heart-breakingly poignant and sweet ... like when Eames realizes he's lost the ability to forge within the dream. And besides the wonderful characterizations, there's also an underlying plot that ties it all together.( 'This,' Arthur says, blinking asleep, 'is the weirdest fucking thing we've ever done.' )
