Ed straggles over to his hotel a little after six, just to drape himself across the bed for a couple minutes in the hopes of fortifying himself before he forges back out for food. )

Rating: R

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

Title: Loud and Clear: Another One of Those Heartbreak Songs
Fandom: Fullmetal Alchemist
Pairing: Roy/Ed (with Al/Win)
Rating: R
Word Count: 60,700 (17,700 in this chapter)
Warnings: please see note below!!
Summary: Sometimes the tall, dark, handsome ones are poisoned underneath.
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? ♥

MORE NOTES! )

FMA -- Delicately

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! ♥

Roy once told him that you can hear a thousand stories in the way somebody shuts a door. )

Voltron -- Retroactive Brilliance

Title: Retroactive Brilliance
Fandom: Voltron
Pairing: Shiro/Keith
Rating: PG-13
Word Count: 1,630
Warnings: CRACK AND SAUCINESS
Summary: In an act of extremely thirsty desperation, Keith hatches a plan.
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. )

YOI -- Value Judgments, Snow, and Cats

Title: Value Judgments, Snow, and Cats
Fandom: Yuri On Ice
Character: Yuri (with proto-Otabek/Yuri if you squint)
Rating: PG
Word Count: 2,260
Warnings: occasional language; spoilers for S1 of YOI
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. )

Warnings: major spoilers for '03/CoS; language; a bit of violence (unimpressive next to canon); adults behaving irresponsibly (including alcohol use); naughty stuff to come
Summary: It is a telling and terrible reflection on Roy's life that the kidnapping is not the worst thing that's happened this week.
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! ;__;

“Hang on,” Ed says. )

The next gunshot and the brightness of the bullet colliding with the road ahead burst nearly simultaneously. )

Summary: It is a telling and terrible reflection on Roy's life that the kidnapping is not the worst thing that's happened this week.
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. )

Word Count: 22,500 (2,600 this part)

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. )

Title: Be Nice, Brother; It's Christmas
Fandom: Fullmetal Alchemist
Pairing: Roy/Ed
Rating: (a relatively light) PG-13
Word Count: 16,900
Warnings: language, FRIGGING SCHMOOP, more adult implications than last time, LITERALLY DIDN'T FINISH REREADING THIS; FORGIVE ME
Summary: A sequel to Flying Horses: Despite many threats involving coal and minor bodily injury, Christmas turns out almost impossibly well.
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. )

FMA -- Miscellanea

Title: Miscellanea
Fandom: Fullmetal Alchemist
Pairing: Roy/Ed
Rating: PG
Word Count: 3,000
Warnings: intermittent language; post-Conqueror of Shamballa AU; IT'S A BALL OF FLUFF
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. )

Rating: PG-13
Word Count: 14,300

Author's Note: Inspired by Jujubee's amazing art – the feeling that it gave me ran away with this fic, which is why I did such a poor job of highlighting the art itself, oops. >__>' All the same: thank you, Jujubee, and ALL of the artists in this fandom, for sharing your beautiful work with us. Even if we forget to say it sometimes, we love and appreciate everything you do. ♥

Roy’s waiting by the phone and listening to the rain.  Is that pathetic? )

Word Count: 47,200 (12,300 this part)
Warnings: language; post-BH AU; emetophobic parties beware; depictions of anxiety and depression (including dark intrusive thoughts); very much unwanted touches
Summary: Ed makes the mistake of waiting on goddamn tenterhooks for something to change – and then, naturally, something does.
Author's Note: The last whining about post limits you'll see until… the next time I post fic. X'D

Miraculously, Roy seems to be significantly less shit at getting out of parking spots than at getting into them. )

Author's Note: So! First off, this has a bit of The Kissing in it, so if that is not your jam, cut out before the end. ♥ Second, I started on the next part of this series (which is from Roy's POV for a change!) a little while back, but I sort of wrote myself into a corner, and now I'm working on Loud and Clear, so idk when I will finish it. But there will eventually be more. ♥

Even if the food wasn’t so brain-meltingly, tongue-explodingly, tastebud-tinglingly fucking fantastic, this dinner would still be more than worth however much Roy’s about to pay for it. )
