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? ♥

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: 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. )

Title: Heartbeat
Fandom: Fullmetal Alchemist
Pairing: Roy/Ed
Rating: PG-13
Word Count: 47,200 (7,300 this part)
Warnings: language; post-BH AU; emetophobic parties beware; depictions of anxiety and depression (including dark intrusive thoughts); very much unwanted touches (see the note)
Summary: Ed makes the mistake of waiting on goddamn tenterhooks for something to change – and then, naturally, something does.
Author's Note: This is part of the demi!Ed series, set after Kindling! Also, LONG NOTE:Abandon hope of impartiality ye who enter here: this fic is a particularly poignant example of my habit of writing to myself, about myself, to a certain extent. I'm not sure if I should call it "bad", as far as the habit goes, because it often seems to resonate with people… And so much of the point of writing, of fanfic, of all of fandom for me is to be out here saying I know you think you're fucked up – and maybe you are, but you're a long way yet from broken, and you're definitely not alone.

Elaborating on the warnings above: particularly in the later chapters, there's a lot of material about depression in this fic (including a bit more suicidal ideation and a variety of somewhat disturbing intrusive thoughts); emetophobic parties should proceed with caution; and there's some very non-consensual physical contact. I didn't warn for that in so many words because I feel like it would implicate Roy because of the pairing, but that isn't the case. And that would make a big difference to me as a reader, so I figured it might change things for a lot of you as well!

As far as the song goes, the album came out back when I still had the energy to do the RP blog thing, and something about the tone of this song really captured the essence of demi!Ed for me – the resignation and the sadness and the emptiness and the loneliness all tangled up together in with an old determination.



P.S. Con fever update: I'm going to be at SacAnime on Saturday the 3rd, and then at YaoiCon the 16th through the 18th!



It’s not like it’s ever a surprise when Hawkeye’s right about something, because she’s Hawkeye, but in this particular case— )

Title: Speechless
Fandom: Fullmetal Alchemist
Pairing: Roy/Ed
Rating: PG-13 R
Word Count: 20,000?? (3,900 in this piece)
Warnings: something like a post-BH AU; language; blood and drama at turns and also at once; it wouldn't be a Tierfal fic without some bad innuendo; S O U L M A T E S!!
Prompt: "soulmarks on the wrist/arm that Ed lost" for Roy/Ed Week
Summary: Ed's stupid mark is long, long gone, but it's not like he has time to care.
Author's Note: AS USUAL, I set out to write something quick and punchy and ended up with a 20K crime against fiction and humanity. I'm nearly done, so I will hopefully have and be posting the rest this weekend… -____-'

Ed is not going to rub his arm. )

Title: Loud and Clear: The Second Law of Thermodynamics

Pairing: Roy/Ed (with Al/Win)
Rating: R
Word Count: 43,250 (11,250 this chapter)
Warnings: language, modern!AU, naughty shit happens at intervals, +10 to cheesy domestic fluff
Summary: Occasions come and go – ordinarily, so do people, but Roy's fast becoming a fixed point with his own damn rules.
Author's Note: You will want to have read PART I as well as PART II, or I'm afraid you'll be confused. I don't make the rules… I just make, like, 100K of context. :'D SO ANYWAY, here we are – happy 520 Day, a bit late because it had the gall to fall on a weekday and whatnot. I'm hoping to update next Monday – and it won't be any earlier than that, 'cause I'm gonna be at FANIME!!!!!!! all weekend… with up to 3 other amazing Roy/Ed authors around me at any given time. :3 If you're going to be there, and you see me, say hi! ♥

He’s not breathing.  He recognizes that in a kind of abstract way, like, Oh, blue sky, green grass, no oxygen coming in to feed the brain that got me here. )

Title: Spectra
Fandom: Fullmetal Alchemist
Pairing: Roy/Ed
Rating: PG-13
Word Count: 16,200 (4,900 this chapter)
Warnings: language; ALL OF THE SPOILERS for '03/CoS
Summary: A prism with three faces. (Colorblindness/soulmates AU.)
Author's Note: So people were like, "DAMN, where's all the CoS!Roy/Ed?"; and then Mthaytr was like, "DAMN, where's all the Roy/Ed with the sexy pining?", and then they were like, "Also, remember that incredible soulmate-colorblindness AU that Panda made?", and somehow I forgot how much CoS eats my brain.

Anyway, this thing basically wrote itself over the course of a week and a half – which was something of a miracle, really, because I've been so burned out on pretty much everything that it was an incredible relief to feel like writing was fun and easy and natural again.


tl;dr I wrote this over a month ago; y'all know the drill with my life these days. But now that I finally found the energy to reread it, I'm actually kinda pleased with how it turned out, so that's… something. :'D




At least Roy’s alive. )

[Part II]

[identity profile] tierfal.livejournal.com
Title: But Not Buried This Time
Fandom: Fullmetal Alchemist
Pairing: Roy/Ed (though mostly just Ed vs. snow)
Rating: R
Word Count: 95,000 (15,794 in this bit)
Warnings: language; gore; violence; snow; suffering; AU from end of Brotherhood; eventual explicit smut
Summary: Once Ed decides that he is categorically not going to rot on the Drachman tundra, dragging his ass out of the jaws of death is actually pretty easy.  ...except when it's not.  At all.  Which is most of the time.
Author's Note: This fic started because inkdropfox sent me a cosplay accessory. Complete with a PILE OF ANGST. Now, Sam and I have the kind of relationship where we can do that kind of thing to each other without warning (also, this kind of thing), but a lot of people were understandably SOMEWHAT SCANDALIZED. :'D One of them was mthaytr, who is my other half. So we were talking about it one time, and they were like "THIS IS NOT OKAY?", and I was like, "I've been thinking about writing a fix-it; I'll throw a quick one together for you." Seven and a half months and seventy-some-thousand words later… here we are. >___> This fic also owes a lot – including the title – to a little ditty by Florence + the Machine that reminded me of Ed, for reasons which are painfully obvious; and then I jacked it up on the obvious Woodkid every time it got stuck. Writing this whole thing involved a lot of dragging myself along one word at a time, so… method fic. Sort… of. :'D It's likely to be dull in places, which is either bad writing or the whole point or both. Also: I'm not quite done with the more-epiloguey-than-ending shit, but I'm getting there. I'm hoping to update pretty consistently, but next weekend is going to be an RL shitshow, so I can't make too many promises there.

As light seeps in under Ed’s eyelids and pries them upward a crack, the first thing he realizes is that there’s too much blood in his mouth for him to hiss out every last expletive he’s ever learned. )

Title: Purrtinent Objections
Fandom: Fullmetal Alchemist
Pairing: Roy/Ed/Al
Rating: PG-13
Word Count: 5,025
Warnings: extreme amounts of domestic fluff; sorta-BH spoilers; the usual Ed + F-bombs = ♥; rush-written! rush-edited! #YOLOSWAG
Summary: Al has his eyes on a kitten. Roy's grateful he still has both eyes.
Author's Note: A birthday present for Hales! ♥ ……because barftastic OT3 fluff, that's why. Another one of those inexplicable post-Brotherhood AUs where everything is how I like it because I said so. :'D Al got so sassy so fast I just… let him. I wasn't feeling brave enough to step in front of that freight train. O__o

Ed’s head lifts before Roy’s even processed the extremely faint scratching emanating from somewhere down the front hall. )

Title: Loud and Clear: The Fine Art of Falling
Fandom: Fullmetal Alchemist
Pairing: Roy/Ed (with Al/Win)
Rating: R
Word Count: 49,600 (7,640 this chapter)
Warnings: language, modern!AU, naughty shit happens at intervals
Summary: Funny thing is, despite being unnaturally tall and shit, Roy's got gravity on his side.
Author's Note: (PSA: PART I is pretty mandatory, so if you haven't read it, start there!) Things I should NOT do include: attempting to post this fic during NaNo. But it's been chilling on my hard-drive for a long time, and after a lot of absolutely invaluable input and encouragement from the bae (♥), I'm hoping it's finally ready to chill on your screen instead. Please be forewarned, however, that this part of the nigh-on-flipping-endless larger fic DOES end in a cliffhanger. And it's a nasty, evil one. :'D And I have no idea when Part 3 will be ready to post, so keep that in mind – I will completely understand if it makes you not want to start. XD

Why the hell is it called Heathrow, anyway?  Was there a row of heaths here once upon a pre-urban-development time?  What the hell is a heath? )

Title: Kindling
Fandom: Fullmetal Alchemist
Characters/Pairing: proto-Roy/Ed, Hawkeye, Al/Win
Rating: PG-13
Word Count: 17,398
Warnings: language, additional Unhappy but slightly less of it, post-Brotherhood AU with spoilers
Summary: The heat's not the only thing getting under Ed's skin and scalding him from the inside out.
Author's Note: Next part after Void and Summer! Parts of this I realized too late that I was writing directly to myself; and parts of it I just sort of… wrote. So a lot of it is probably somewhat repetitive and possibly a bit boring, and I'm sorry for that. I hope it's worth the time anyway. ♥ More to come, theoretically in the foreseeable future.

Summer weather in Central is like a shitty-ass tide. )

Title: Right as Rain
Fandom: Fullmetal Alchemist
Pairing: Roy/Ed, Al/cats
Rating: PG-13
Word Count: 9,400
Warnings: language; smutty(/slightly kinky) implications and plentiful innuendo; major spoilers for Brotherhood; h/c-y angst; what a crap title even by my standards
Summary: Surprises come in several varieties, and all of them are illuminating.
Author's Note: A return to the Leading the Blind 'verse! This one is for [livejournal.com profile] akaineechan. ♥ …I meant to post this yesterday, but I just couldn't edit it for the life of me. So, uh, first fic of 2015, not actually written in 2015 at all! XD''

Roy hates the rain, not just for the reasons he used to, which he’ll maintain until the day he dies have always been valid—not for the reasons that never failed to make Breda snicker and Havoc grin and Fuery offer an umbrella with the solemnity of a monarch offering a knight a sword. )

Pairing: Ed/Al
Rating: PG-13
Word Count: 4,600
Warnings: language (thanks, Ed!); major end-of-Brotherhood spoilers; mild sketch; angst-fluff ratio of approximately 1:3
Summary: Ed kinda hates winter and really loves Al. Like. Y'know.
Author's Note: Late birthday fic for Hales! ♥ Merry Christmas to all who celebrate it and/or co-dependent brothers hooking up. :'DDDD

There are a lot of things to like about winter, but there are also a lot of things to hate, and Ed can’t really help it if he’s struggling with the balance. )

Title: Tell Me That We'll Always Be Together
Fandom: Fullmetal Alchemist
Pairing: Miles/Alfons, Roy/Al, ???? Ed/Lan Fan ????
Rating: PG-13
Word Count: 14,175
Warnings: language; more language; Al being seriously questionable and slightly illegal; kicking Alfons while he's down/angstorms with a chance of absolute destruction; modern!AU
Summary: In which the best thing that has ever happened to Alfons goes horribly, horribly wrong.
Author's Note: This is based on two sorta-separate headcanons Phindus mentioned almost a year ago – I instantly fell in love with both but just never quite got to writing them, 'cause I'm lame. So now I've combined them, but the thing is that Phin told me it all ended okay but at the time didn't specify how, so I had to improvise. Which never goes well. :| tl;dr, I just… miss this 'verse, and everything it meant, and everything we built, and I got so emotional about it that this fic got really emotional, too. Also I listened to the song you'll get to in about 10,000 words on repeat at lunch for three days straight, which… wow, Tierfal. Wow. Anyway, this one's set soon after The Christmas One – Alfons still has a cast on, and there's a month left until Al is legal. OH, THE HUMANITY. Extra special thank you to the lovely [livejournal.com profile] powdered_opium for helping me with the end! Ilu, sweetie. ♥

If laptops weren’t so damned expensive that they might as well be made of gold and diamonds with unicorn-hoof plating, Alfons would have thrown his at Al’s head about five minutes ago. )

Rating: very light PG-13
Word Count: 2,875
Warnings: brief language (thanks, boys! ♥); very mild impure thoughts (thanks, Roy! ♥); maybe minor spoilers for Brotherhood; UNREPENTANT FLUFF; wot's editing Precious
Summary: Everyone is up too late, but somehow everything's in order.
Author's Note: A homework bribe for the lovely and talented Silver, who wanted some OT3 fluff! :3 ♥ It's AU in small ways from the end of BH, so that everyone can be maximum-happy forever; no, you don't get a choice. :DDDDD

Title: Loud and Clear: The Twelfth Cup of Coffee
Fandom: Fullmetal Alchemist
Pairing: Roy/Ed (with some Al/Win)
Rating: R
Word Count: 44,500 (7,065 this chapter)
Warnings: language, modern!AU, smutzorz and semi-smutzorz in later chapters, sketchzorz in all of them
Summary: The thing with Roy is founded on coffee snobbery and stupid text messages and seriously awesome makeout sessions in the car. Oh, and the love of a lifetime, or whatever.
Author's Note: This happened because I was thinking about some of Pax's amazing art and trying to tease the whole story out of it, because what kind of trips was Ed going on, and where had he gotten the scars in this 'verse, and…? And then I put on my crap British pop music CD in the car the next morning and sealed my own fate. So if you enjoy this, you may thank Pax (which you should do anyway); and you may thank Olly Murs, because Hand on Heart and Loud and Clear (*cough*) were the start of it, and then What a Buzz and Hey You Beautiful (careful, that one's a little skeevy >_>) sealed my fate securely. (And Army of Two, of course, but that one already got a fic.) All of the other songs on that album already belong to other fics, or I'm sure it would be worse; and then this damn thing persisted through several music changes, which is usually the death warrant of a WIP for me… I guess this one really wanted to be shared. XD To which effect: this is not a complete fic, but it is a complete arc. A show of hands on Tumblplace indicated that people would rather get to read the first segment of what might someday be the full work than wait and possibly never read anything at all if I never finished the whole thing (which will require… idk, probably another piece this size? FIC IS HARD, MANNN). But I can promise you, assuredly, that this part does not end in a cliffhanger of any import; and that there's really no dramatic tension at all because of the double storylines – SPOILER, they end up together, and they're stupidly happy, and the majority of this content is just finding out how they got here. I'm going to try to post a chapter every couple days as time and brainpower allow, and then we'll see if someday I can crank out another 45K to spin out the rest. Soooooo, them's the facts. :D Also I don't have a beta What, who said that. ……okay, one last note, I promise: several bits and pieces and details of this fic are semi-autobiographical in weird ways; and many of the places are based on real ones – most especially the coffee shop, which I have described very poorly, and which looks like this IRL. Come visit me sometime, and I'll give you the "this place was in a fic" tour. :'D

Rating: PG-13
Word Count: 23,850
Warnings: language, teenagers scare the livin' shit out of me, canonsmash, crack and madness, dramaaaaaa
Summary: The homecoming dance follows right on the heels of the first football game, which will make it easy for Roy to remember the date of his own destruction.
Author's Note: Fittingly enough, the first part of this fic had a number of truly wonderful cheerleaders who gave me some incomparably great ideas and brainstorming assistance. You guys know who you are, and hopefully you know how much I appreciate it. :3 ♥♥♥ I would like to make a formal apology for the fact that this cliffhanger is actually worse than the last one – and I'd promise that the next part won't take almost two years to produce, but I always end up a liar when I do that. XD I'm also veryveryvery sorry for the fact that only the first few pieces are coming out today – the later parts need a bit more editing, and I won't have time for that until next weekend. :c The chapter titles are from Florence, 'cause I needed some musical accompaniment to slog through the end of this ridiculous thing. X'D

Alfons is leaning forward, his elbows on his knees and his chin cradled in his hands, gazing out at the football field and looking kind of disconcerted. He glances over at Al. “Are you okay with the fact that the entire school is staring at your brother’s butt?” )

Summary: Six years on, Roy's whole heart gets shaken back to rights.
Author's Note: …this was supposed to be short. And good! Short and good. It is neither of those things. But it was inspired a long while back by a thing that the too-lovely Pax drew, although it… barely… touches… on the wonderful art. So in addition to being bad at writing fic, I'm bad at being inspired. :'| Despite its general mediocrity, however, it is for Pax, with love and CoS feels; and also for Panda, with love and blood!kink. ♥♥♥♥ Hope it makes you smile, guys! ♥

Summary: Ed and Roy are going to get married. At least theoretically speaking…
Author's Note: MERRY EXTREMELY LATE CHRISTMAS, [livejournal.com profile] paranormalpanda! ♥♥♥ To show you how much I love you, I broke my brain dedicating more thought to my OTP's fictional wedding in the past month and a half than I have done to my IRL wedding over the last year. :'D Mega-thanks to the inimitable Phindus, who very kindly helped me brainstorm hilarity for this fic and accordingly received a ridiculous cameo. *brofist* ♥ I'm so sorry for the massive delay; Edblog pretty much assassinated my productivity on real fic, but fortunately I discovered a new unrepentant OTP fluff anthem, which helped a little. ;A; I hope it's worth the wait!! ♥♥♥

Ed drums his metal fingers on the table and pointedly narrows his eyes. )
