Rating: PG-13
Word Count: 3,900
Warnings: some language; post-CoS AU; fluff in the extreme
Summary: Sometimes, stupid things simply must be done, even when they jeopardize very good cake.
Author's Note: This fic came about because I was thinking about how I was probably going to miss someone's birthday, and then half of it jumped into my brain. Then I finished it in July, and then I completely forgot that it existed for almost two full months. moreeeee )

The sticky thing about traditions was that the moment you neglected to feed them, they started to starve and die. )

Title: Blackmail, Coercion, and Slander of a Superior Officer Who Has Done Absolutely Nothing Wrong, Honest
Fandom: Fullmetal Alchemist
Pairing/Characters: proto-Roy/Ed (heavily featuring my wife, Riza Hawkeye)
Rating: PG
Word Count: 1,500
Warnings: a touch of PG-13 language (SCANDALOUS); set in an unspecified post-BH 'verse
Prompt: "You embarrassed me this evening" for Roy/Ed Week
Summary: Riza takes such immense joy in ruining Roy's life that he can't even bring himself to begrudge her.
Author's Note: Welcome to the one, single, solitary thing I finished early for Roy/Ed week! X'DDD Hurling some gratitude at Mthatyr for their help hashing out the title. ♥

Roy walks Riza up to her apartment—not because she needs it, or wants it, or because he thinks there’s even a remote possibility that he’d be able to offer her some kind of protection that she couldn’t offer herself; but because he likes to. )

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! )

Paddington Station on a Saturday morning is significantly more populous than he expected. )

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. )

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: 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. )

Title: Coal and Carbon
Fandom: Fullmetal Alchemist
Pairing: Roy/Ed
Rating: PG
Word Count: 1,000
Warnings: S C H M O O P; one of many vaguely post-BH AUs where I don't even bother explaining why things are the way that I like them
Prompt: "intricate machinery" for Roy/Ed Week
Summary: It's the little things in life – or, as luck would have it, in one's bed.
Author's Note: Q. Are you really trying to pass off a poorly-executed extended metaphor as a fanfic? A. WELCOME TO ROY/ED WEEK, MOTHERFUCKERS ……maybe.

Surfacing from sleep and knowing, somewhere in the back of his mind, that he doesn’t have to drag himself out of bed for several hours yet is one of the single simplest and most decadent pleasures of life, as far as Roy is concerned. )

Title: Loud and Clear: The Second Law of Thermodynamics
Fandom: Fullmetal Alchemist
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: Magnitude and Force
Fandom: Fullmetal Alchemist
Pairing: Hei/Ed
Rating: PG
Word Count: 1,220
Warnings: language; modern AU; schmoop; please explain this "editing" of which you speak
Summary: [Sequel to The Worst Trip Ever, because ideas are hard.] Ed has a lot of uncanny talents, one of which is making things that should be stupid turn out great.
Author's Note: Some Alfons for my Alfons! Happy birthday, kid; I love you. ♥

“Hey,” Ed says.  “Can I tell you a secret?” )

Title: Ferrocerium
Fandom: Fullmetal Alchemist
Pairing: Roy/Ed
Rating: PG-13
Word Count: 1,630
Warnings: AU from the end of BH probs; language because Ed; innuendo because Roy
Summary: Of love and lighters and a bag of kebabs.
Author's Note: Started this for Mthaytr a couple weeks back and dashed the rest off tonight to post for Valentine's Day. ♥ Late-ass timezone ftw. :'D

Roy stops by the kebab place on his way home from headquarters, because it’s been a long damn day, and he’s craving something savory. He doesn’t imagine that his housemate is likely to turn down food no matter how much dinner has already been consumed in Roy’s admittedly lengthy absence. )

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: Hands and Hearts
Fandom: Fullmetal Alchemist
Pairing: Roy/Ed
Rating: PG
Word Count: 1,425
Warnings: ÜBER-FLUFF, a bit of PG-13 language, post-BH AU
Prompt: expression at Roy/Ed Week
Summary: Some things can't be fixed; some things get broken… and some things are sleepy.
Author's Note: Once I realized that the "expression" prompt could be interpreted as an idiomatic expression, I was DOOMED. :'D

The incidents that end with the shreds of Ed’s automail being shipped to Rush Valley on the military budget (accompanied by numerous conciliatory gifts, paid out of his own pocket) have become just frequent enough that Roy is tempted to relegate him to the library on a semi-permanent basis. )

Title: Flying Horses
Fandom: Fullmetal Alchemist
Pairing: Roy/Ed
Rating: PG
Word Count: 3,600 (of 20,000 in total)
Warnings: brush your goddamn teeth after consuming; periodic PG-13 language and themes
Prompt: AU for Roy/Ed Week
Summary: The carousel attendant puts a hell of a twist into Roy's and Elysia's serene little Saturday routine – but Roy Mustang isn't likely to strike on happiness until barnyard animals take to the summer skies.
Author's Note: Soooooooo about twelve years ago, it was Silver's birthday, and I was like, "Hey, an excuse to write one of my irrepressible kidfic plotbunnies!", because for some reason Roy adopting Elysia after the Hugheses die in a horrible accident is, like, my jam. I am messed up. It's true. :'D ANYWAY, the park depicted in this fic is about a mile away from my apartment, so I can always hear the train whistle when I take a shower on the weekends, and it sorta got away from me from there. I mean that. The majority of this is utterly superfluous marshmallow fluff. XD Buuuuuut I hope my cinnamon roll Silver gets a smile out of it, in any case! ♥

It’s overcast, and the chill in the air has kept most of the local families inside—which suits Roy just fine; it means there’s no line at the carousel. )

Title: Melodious
Fandom: Fullmetal Alchemist
Pairing: Roy/Ed
Rating: PG
Word Count: 1,200
Warnings: fluff. like. really.; some kind of post-BH AU, probably; saucy bois; have I edited this AT ALL? you'll NEVER KNOW
Prompt: happiness for Roy/Ed Week
Summary: It's a rather blurry boundary between sleeping and waking these days.
Author's Note: I titled this document "Roy/Ed Fluffball". Consider yourselves warned. >:|

Roy’s waking brain has acclimated to the greatest stroke of luck ever experienced by a sad little mortal being—it almost never surprises him, anymore, to see lights on inside when he reaches the house; to be greeted with a rib-cracking, chest-crushing, breath-stealing hug, half-warmth, half-steel, the moment he sets foot over the threshold—but sometimes his somnolent mind takes a moment to catch up. )

Title: Head Over Heels
Fandom: Fullmetal Alchemist
Pairing: Roy/Ed
Rating: PG
Word Count: 2,700
Warnings: language (very not PG :'D); post-some-canon AU; crap-ass barely-edited speedfic ahoy!
Prompt: people saying things and thinking they're normal because they're concussed and HILARITY ENSUES
Summary: Roy gets a head wound; Ed gets a headache.
Author's Note: HAPPY BIRTHDAY, HACHA!!!!! ♥♥♥ You rock my socks, friend. ;___; Hope you had a good one! Special thanks to my bb Mthaytr for rescuing this silly thing. XDDDD

Roy’s first thought is That could have gone better. )

Title: Thermodyanmics
Fandom: Fullmetal Alchemist
Pairing: Roy/Ed
Rating: R/NC-17/whatever
Word Count: 13,200
Warnings: language; explicit pr0nz; worst title ever? maybe; major spoilers for '03/CoS
Summary: Roy pines, and perseveres, and the rewards are greater than he ever dared to dream of.
Author's Note: This fic is for (and more than a bit inspired by) the inimitable mthaytr… and for anyone who has never gotten a reply even through their comment on my work was extremely kind and wonderful, because I'm a piece of crap who thrives on reviews but is absolutely terrible at responding to them. ;_____; Thank you guys, always, for your support. ♥ ETA: LOL I FORGOT ABOUT LJ'S POST LIMITS. Le sigh. XD

It’s almost amusing how avidly Central City hates the snow—scarves and hats and mittens in every color that wool can be dyed dot the crowds on the streets; Roy has spotted two separate secretaries wearing their overcoats inside, and one trying to hold the telephone against her earmuffs. )

Title: The Worst Trip Ever
Fandom: Fullmetal Alchemist
Pairing: Alfons/Ed
Rating: PG
Word Count: 1,100
Warnings: modern!AU; quasi-alt spoilers for CoS, I guess? XD
Summary: Alfons and Ed are on a road trip, and it is terrible that it's so great.
Author's Note: Happy birthday speedfic for my Saaaaaaaammyyyyyyyyy. ♥

As it turns out, this road-trip-with-the-best-friend thing was about the single worst idea Alfons has ever had. )

Title: Foal Play

Pairing: Roy/Ed
Rating: PG
Word Count: 1,700
Warnings: death by schmoop; unseemly language
Summary: A fairly average night upon which Ed muses about fiction and prods his significant other.
Author's Note: This fragment of pointless fluff is for the staggeringly wonderful mthaytr, who has been putting up with me quite a bit lately and makes me smile a hell of a lot. ♥;

The fact is that Roy likes reading trashy novels. )

Title: Circumstantial
Fandom: Fullmetal Alchemist
Pairing: Roy/Ed
Rating: PG-13
Word Count: 1,150
Warnings: language; mentions of smex; major spoilers for Brotherhood
Summary: Occasionally there are things that Ed really needs to not-exactly-say so that Roy will not-exactly-hear them.
Author's Note: So I got to chapters 5 and 6 of Impetus ad Hominem on Thursday and was SO FURIOUS at how well my dear friend Mthaytr tortures these two hopeless pieces of shit that I had to lie in bed brainstorming stupid fluff for half an hour before I could let go of my rage and sleep. :'DDD Timed out kinda nice, though, I guess. XD Aaaaand it's post-Brotherhood not-too-AU something something… whatever. X'D Enjoy! ♥

Ed slides his left hand across the two or three inches of empty mattress until he reaches Roy’s forearm. )
