Author's Note: First: You guys… are beyond description. I have the most amazing readers on the entire planet – you guys are funny and sweet and insightful and just so generous, with your time and your words alike, and I cannot begin to thank you enough. I always mean to answer comments, because every single one of them matters to me – I really do live in hope that one of these days I'll have the energy to start doing that again, but for now I save my reserves for bringing out new stuff. I hope that's okay. ♥ Thank you guys so much for being here, for always being here – everyone who comments; everyone who kudos's; everyone who visits and reads and participates in this thing. You guys are the reason for it. You guys are what make it important and meaningful and fun. ♥ etc )

The first mangled thought in his tortured head on Monday morning is that he should have smuggled some NyQuil onto the plane on the trip over. )

Author's Note: For those that missed my edit to the Tumblr post or the chapter tally on AO3 (which… I mean, tiny after-the-fact stuff, so probably all of you! XD), I epic-failed at this fic again and didn't realize that it has 5 chapters in total instead of 4. So… see y'all next weekend after all. :'D I may try to post this sucker on Saturday, because Roy/Ed Week starts Sunday! \o/ moar )

It’s seven forty local time. )

Author's Note: HERE WE GO, GUYS! Please forgive me for the romanticized, hopelessly nostalgic travelogue shit I've got going on here. :'D  And I hope those of you in the UK in particular will forgive me for the things I've forgotten, the things that have changed, and the things that I was too lazy to research in enough detail to make up for the first two. XD recap! )


He has a seminar thing scheduled for tomorrow morning down at the university. )

One might think he’d reserve Sunday for discovering the cultural nuances of the English pub scene—that is, if one didn’t know him at all. )

Author's Note: OKAY, GUYS. This is the LAST CHAPTER before shit starts to get really real – if you're not a fan of horrible cliffhangery goodness, stop reading after this one. I mean it. I'm serious. FINAL WARNING. XD Wait until the third chapter of the next fic in this series comes out before you jump back in – which should, hopefully, only be a total of four weeks, if all goes to plan. It's for your own good, I swear! XD

Author's Note:SWEET BABY JESUS, wow. The next two chapters come with a huge host of warnings: general creepiness that starts out insidiously subtle and segues into an openly abusive relationship; borderline dub-con; and stalking. AWWWWWRIGHT. :| No, seriously – if any of that is likely to be unsettling to you, now that you know what it is, you aren't going to miss anything plot-wise if you wait this out / only read the present-day parts / skip ahead to chapter 3 once it's up. Please, please don't endure any hurt on account of this silly fic, okay? ♥

Title: Delicately
Fandom: Fullmetal Alchemist
Pairing: Roy/Ed
Rating: PG
Word Count: 1,484
Warnings: language; spoilers for Brotherhood
Summary: There are some things alchemy couldn’t’ve fixed anyway.
Author's Note: I… have written essentially this exact fic before, but it’s 5/20, damn it, and I only decided to do something this morning, so here we are. :’)  This is greatly inspired by the Missy Higgins song “Nightminds”, which makes an excellent Roy/Ed song no matter which POV you listen to it from.

P.S. I will be at Fanime next weekend, in a different Ed each of the days, because that is What I Do.  More details will be on my Instagram in the next few days if you’re curious!  If you’re going to the con and want to meet up, just drop me a line! ♥

Author's Note: You can blame this on Snapchat filters, my beautiful friend, and my lack of impulse control. Whatever you do, don't read it. :'D

Keith was out of ideas.  None of his extremely subtle hints seemed to be landing; he had to try a different tack. )

Summary: The problem with any time Yuri's not actively skating is that it gives him a chance to think.
Author's Note: I love my newest small, angry, blond son who kicks things/people and has a deeply questionable fashion sense. Hi, I finished this two days into January and then more or less forgot it existed. >_>'

The storm in Moscow is bad enough—thick enough, white enough, dense enough, cold enough; 'bad' is a stupid word that doesn’t mean much of anything alone—that his grandfather takes one look out the window and then frowns at him, and Yuri knows that they are not going to be driving to the rink. )

Author's Note: I love how none of you were even a little bit worried about Roy's survival, 'cause you know I wouldn't do that to you guys. :') Anyway – thank you so much for reading. ♥ You guys are so much better to me than I deserve! ;__;

Author's Note: The triumphant return of this old trope!fic, haha. Super overdue, but I've finally finished the damn thing now, so hopefully I'll be able to update faster from here on out. Also, check out this RIDICULOUSLY AMAZING art that sen-elric did after the first chapter! ;_____;

Roy doesn’t recognize either the face or the torch, although he sees enough faces day-to-day that it’s possible he’s forgotten a few of them.  Torches are a bit harder to come by, but there’s nothing especially distinct about this one, so its identity is a mystery to him, too. )

Author's Note: A Roy/Ed Gift Exchange fic for viorar-vel-til-loftarasa! This is set in a post-CoS AU where I hand-waved Ed and Al back from our world again, so that Ed could start getting into trouble in Amestris again.

Roy regrets everything.  Roy regrets the entirety of his existence. )

Author's Note: a.k.a. the post limit that finally killed me

Roy tries to sketch out a schedule that’s more or less educational for Elysia; and one that’s open-ended and free of obligations so that Ed and/or Al can jump in whenever they wish, without ever feeling compelled. )

Author's Note: MERRY CHRISTMAS AT THE LAST SECOND!

Thank you guys all for putting up with me for another year. You are all the MVPs. ♥

This sucker is supposed to take place relatively shortly after the last one, and the dates are set for 2016. Given that I fudged the timelines so badly in the last one, I'm hoping you guys won't mind terribly if I fudge them again. XD

To the commenter from last time, who asked about whether Ed had a prosthetic in this AU: at the time, because the first fic was about Roy navigating his own feelings, I honestly hadn't even thought about it. Thank you for reminding me that not thinking about it is, in itself, a privilege; and thank you for reminding me that representation matters, no matter how small the corner of the internet where it appears.

Also: much as I love me some Al/Win in the right circumstances, you are going to have to pry aroace!Al out of my cold, dead hands.


Roy is comparing the sugar content of the store brand knockoff of the no-marshmallows-but-enough-colors-to-still-be-fun cereal with the certified version, which costs almost twenty percent more. )

Summary: Good things arrive, unheralded, in perfectly normal-sized packages.
Author's Note: The incredibly sweet Gettibucket was having a crappy week, so I was like "What does Getti like??", and my first thought was, "CoS! And Ed suffering! And… winter? And… schmoop?" The latter two might've been me, but… I tried. :') Hope it makes you smile, friend. ♥♥♥ This time of year can be really hard, guys. If it is for you right now, please hang in there as best you can. ♥

The knock at the door makes Roy startle, and then it makes him pause.  He isn’t expecting anyone. )
