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. )

Title: Difficult to Argue
Fandom: Fullmetal Alchemist
Pairing: Roy/Ed
Rating: PG-13
Word Count: 14,300
Warnings: intermittent language; post-BH AU; some dark content/gore (though nothing significantly worse than canon)
Summary: It's a well-deserved shame and a cordially-invited tragedy that anything Roy tries to treasure goes down in flames.
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? )

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— )

[Part 2]

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. )

[Part 2]

[identity profile] tierfal.livejournal.com
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: Choose Your Own Rainbow
Fandom: Fullmetal Alchemist
Pairing: pre-Roy/Ed
Rating: PG-13
Word Count: 15,600
Warnings: language; absurdity; I did, like, two Google searches on some of this stuff and then left it at that because Roy is kind of a poser anyway?; this needs a lot more editing but ain't nobody got time for that; modern AU
Summary: Edward Elric has the most singular talent of anyone alive for taking Roy's zen, thrashing it thoroughly, and then hurling it into a Dumpster. …metaphysically speaking, anyway.
Author's Note: A now extremely late birthday present for Obersten!!!!! ♥ Based on his ridiculously A+ Downward Dogs AU – the premise is founded in some intel I acquired from Secret Insider Sources, and then I made up everything else. :'D tl;dr if you like a detail/aspect of this, it's probably Berg's; if you're like "wtf is this shit," it's probably one of my additions. X'D (Or it's one of the things I half-assedly pretended to research! I am a pro at this writing shit.)

Today Roy is going to tell Ed how stupid it is to hate on chakra beads. )

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: Winging It
Fandom: Fullmetal Alchemist
Pairing: Roy/Ed
Rating: PG-13
Word Count: 4,100
Warnings: language; innuendo; pointless and unnecessary modern!AU volume LXVIII
Summary: Strangely enough, this is the one time Roy didn't expect to be cruising at 37,000 feet.
Author's Note: This fic happened because airline travel makes me a salty bitch, so when I was leaving for my grandmother's funeral and saw a girl curling her hair in the airport bathroom, my first thought was "Do you think you're going to find your damn soulmate on the plane?" My second thought was "ROY/ED AU WHERE ED HAS A PHOBIA OF FLYING!!!!" …and now we're here. Don't worry; karma made sure I caught the Plague on my way back. :|

There are two problems with the young man sitting in the window seat when Roy settles down next to the aisle for the first leg of his flight. )

Title: The Waterfall
Fandom: Fullmetal Alchemist
Pairing: Roy/Ed
Rating: PG-13
Word Count: 1,830
Warnings: language, yes it's another fic about depression, plentiful innuendo, modern!AU
Summary: Somewhere between Atlas and Giles Corey, with significantly less significance.
Author's Note: This takes place immediately after the previous because actual dachshund Tierfal couldn't stop chewing on the toy.

“All right,” Ed murmurs into his neck after a too-short stretch of a vaguely detached sort of haze of passing time.  “We should get the hell going.” )

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: Day Seven
Fandom: Fullmetal Alchemist
Pairing: Roy/Ed
Rating: PG-13
Word Count: 3,109
Warnings: depiction of depression; modern!AU; language; bleak worldview ahoy
Summary: (Follow-up to A Wicked Game.) A thousand little unseen fishhooks underneath his skin, tied to a thousand little weights – and sometimes they're just too heavy to keep dragging.
Author's Note: Q. Tierfal, why do you write sequels to your own shit, like, four years later? A. Because I always sort of felt like I had shortchanged this one, and also Mthaytr and I were talking about it, and… REASONS?? Shout-out to all of you, because you're doing your best, and it is fucking good enough, no matter what your brain might say sometimes.

The worst part is that he gets a long string of good days first—days where he feels full, feels energetic and alive. )

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. )

[PART II]

[identity profile] tierfal.livejournal.com
Title: Summer
Fandom: Fullmetal Alchemist
Characters/Pairing: Ed, Hawkeye, Roy (and kinda a tiny bit Roy/Ed)
Rating: PG-13
Word Count: 11,830
Warnings: language, lots of Unhappy, post-Brotherhood AU with spoilers
Summary: People mean well, mostly, but he's alone in this – right?
Author's Note: ………so! Um. This is a sequel to Void – you can read it on its own if you want, but that probably contextualizes it better! And all of the warnings/tags/please-tell-me-if-I'm-out-of-line stuff from that fic apply here as well. More of this segment later this week if I can get myself not to hate it; and then there will be at least one additional part… someday. I am bad at deadlines. I am bad at a lot of things.

Also: I am sincerely sorry I didn't reply to all of the comments and/or messages about the prior fic – I hope everyone who left one knows they are welcome to drop me a line anytime, anywhere; I'm really crap at responding when I get busy or overwhelmed (which is all the time), but I always, always care, and I am always happy to listen if you need somebody to talk to. ♥

Please take note that this and the remaining stories in this 'verse are all set a long while after the previous one – three or four years post-Brotherhood, probably?  It's an AU as far as the Brotherhood ending is concerned, in more ways than just the basic premise: I also couldn't bear to take alchemy away from Ed when he was already feeling like this. Although I did leave him still stuck with the automail arm, because I'm an asshole.

One last thing: when I'm writing demi!Ed in any capacity (this was really pronounced on le blog too if you follow that), there's this sort of interim period in my head where he really sort of starts to destroy himself while no one is watching, and it changes his character pretty substantially. So he might seem kind of OOC, I guess?, but it's the result of the extrapolations I made behind the scenes. Or, more accurately, it's a largely unintentional side effect of those extrapolations, because he just throws this shit at me, and I write it down and shake my head a lot. >____> Anyway, if he seems a little less… Ed, you're not alone in noticing that. And everyone and their mom is going to talk about it over the course of the next several thousand words. Please don't leave me nasty comments about him being out of character and me ruining the franchise, is what I'm saying, because I am legitimately too emotionally fragile for that shit right now what who said that


…it also occurs to me that I should probably warn for a touch of vulgarity in the early dialogue in this part. And some very dark Ed's-internal-monologue thoughts. Stay safe, frands. ♥




Ed has hated summer for as long as he can… Well.  No.  He’s hated summer since the automail. )

Title: Dichlorodiethyl Sulfide

Word Count: 1,160
Warnings: language, violence/gore, all the usual for Mud Grave fics
Summary: What are you supposed to do when the afterimage on the back of your eyelids keeps trying to stitch up all your wounds?
Author's Note: More Mud Grave-inspired fic. I am ruined. Mourn me. (Follows right on after Phantasmagoria and Epistolary.)

Ed can see it in his eyes that Roy—no—Mustang, Mustang—Ed can tell that Mustang has something to say. )

[identity profile] tierfal.livejournal.com
Title: Phantasmagoria
Fandom: Fullmetal Alchemist
Characters: Roy & Ed
Rating: PG-13
Word Count: 880
Warnings: is general trauma a warning?; language; darkfic; spoilers for/AU from '03/CoS
Summary: The part of Ed that came back isn't quite the same.
Author's Note: Berg makes comics that ruin my life in the best possible way. Like this one (gore tw), from the utterly life-wrecking Mud Grave universe, which is what this is about. XD

There’s something wrong with Ed. )

[Part 2: Epistolary]

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. )

Title: Plus Tax
Fandom: Fullmetal Alchemist
Pairing: Roy/Ed
Rating: light PG-13
Word Count: 2,400
Warnings: unabashedly stupid modern!AU, Ed's mouth/internal monologue, the answer to the question "Do you even edit anymore?" is something along the lines of "Hahahahaha"
Summary: Ed is having a crappy, crappy night at his crappy, crappy Walgreens job.
Author's Note: I was reading Not Always Right because I wasn't using that faith in humanity anyway, and then… this one… just… inspired this fic. And I was powerless to stop it. FML. If it reeks of Loud and Clear!Ed's narrative voice, I'm sure that is a coincidence; it's not like I've written 30,000 words of that stupid fic in the last month or anything… -___-''

Ed has been in this godforsaken store covering other people’s shifts on his usual day off for nine hours and forty-five minutes when the guy comes up to the counter. )

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. )

Title: Orange-Vanilla
Fandom: Fullmetal Alchemist
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. )
