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: Mistaken
Fandom: Fullmetal Alchemist
Pairing: Roy/Ed
Rating: R
Word Count: 22,500 (2,600 this part)
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: 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: 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: 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: 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: 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: 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

Pairing: girl!Roy/girl!Ed
Rating: R
Word Count: 1,200
Warnings: context what's context; lady sexytimes; Ed's mouth is filthy in more ways than one; post-canon AU of some kind from somewhere
Summary: Even stupidly early weekday mornings have a certain appeal when you wake up next to that psycho woman you're in love with.
Author's Note: It sounded like Rose was having a bad week, so I set out to write her some teeth-rotting über-fluff. Instead I seem to have ended up with sexy schmoop. Uh. Hmm. X'D In any case, I hope you like it, sweetie! ♥;;; ETA: Rose drew MAGNIFICENT ART! (Originally posted here!)

Title: To Make the Sun Shine
Fandom: Fullmetal Alchemist
Pairing: alt!Roy/Ed
Rating: R
Word Count: 18,044 (9,650 in this portion)
Warnings: language; explicit sexual activity; this is why I don't write historical fiction; friends don't let friends do dramatic irony; major spoilers for '03/CoS
Summary: Light never lasts in London, does it? He, of all people, ought to know better than to believe in something good.
Author's Note: Writing the same fic I always write, but backwards, makes it super-creative, right? Almost as creative as the liberties I took by being absolutely shit at research, ahahaha.

Title: Diplomatic Excursions and Other Ways to Die
Fandom: Fullmetal Alchemist
Characters/Pairing: Roy/Ed, featuring Al/cats and Hawkeye/BAMFery (with past Ling/Ed and implied Al/Winry)
Rating: R (NC-17 by the standards of people who have standards)
Word Count: 53,700
Warnings: language and more language, violence/mild gore, explicit sex, major spoilers for Brotherhood
Summary: Conceptually, attending Emperor Ling's coronation celebration is simple enough. In practice, it involves far too much trekking, yearning, bleeding, burning, hoping, running, and dodging of diplomatic catastrophes for Roy's tastes.
Author's Note: This fic is sheer madness, sparked and nurtured by the obscenely talented [livejournal.com profile] bob_fish and then made possible by the obscenely wonderful [livejournal.com profile] eltea. The whole thing is just kind of obscene.

Title: Like Whiskey
Fandom: Fullmetal Alchemist
Pairing: girl!Roy/girl!Ed
Rating: R
Word Count: 8,440
Warnings: language, dramaaaaaa, assorted sexytalk, relatively tactful sex, major spoilers for Brotherhood
Summary: Ed's spent the last year learning that nothing's better than not-enough – and then the bitch walks in, with that same old mouth full of all new lies.
Author's Note: And on your right, Tierfal finally made it to the Femmeslash February party, almost late and with clothing askew. >__> For those of you who are waiting for the Genderswap Fic of Doom, hopefully this will whet your appetite: these are the same basic characters in a much more canon-ish version of their universe. Since the GFoD is entirely from Roza's POV, I wrote Ed for this one… even though the song that inspired it by randomly leaping into my head (the very start, that is, of "Yoü and I") is much more of Roza's angle on the whole thing. tl;dr: I don't have a clue what's going on in my brain anymore, and I'm incapable of writing anything short. XD

Whatever else you can say about East City folks—and you can say a metric shit-ton or two, since they’re too stuck-up to be real hicks and too fucking bigoted to be yuppies—they know how to drink. )

Fandom: Fullmetal Alchemist
Pairing: vampire!Hughes/Roy (and also vampire!Hughes/Gracia because the more the goddamn merrier)
Rating: R
Word Count: 3,780
Warnings: language; explicit sexual activity; MAJOR SPOILERS of the mid-series variety (technically Brotherhood canon, but who's counting?)
Summary: Roy's working. He's working on ignoring the something-like-a-man lounging in the chair on the other side of the desk. He does not anticipate that he will be successful.
Author's Note: This is, in essence, just an expansion of a drabble [livejournal.com profile] eltea wrote ages ago, which is not posted publicly because she's shy. Must be interesting, having inhibitions. :P

Rating: R
Word Count: 4,059
Warnings: AU with some spoilers for Brotherhood 'verse; language; SEX
Prompt: prostitution
Summary: Roy gets significantly more than he bargained for with a pair of gold-eyed prostitutes.
Author's Note: …or "Drachman roulette". I was supposed to be writing crackfic (Sin to Win, in fact), only I was in the mood for angstsmut, and I’d typoed “brothel” as “brother” earlier in the day, and… things got out of hand. If you know what I mean. If you don’t read warnings, THIS IS AU. Okay, now we’re good.

Title: Frozen Flame

Rating: R
Word Count: 37,350
Warnings: massively major SPOILERS for original FMA series and "Conqueror of Shamballa"; language; underage sex; violence/a bit of gore
Summary: “I want to learn Flame Alchemy,” Alphonse says. Maybe Roy has some snow in his ears, or maybe his age is catching up in a hurry; perhaps the four years of seclusion have damaged his comprehension of human speech, or his ruined eye is leaching energy from his other senses. “You what?”
Author's Note: Every now and then I do something totally ridiculous, just to keep myself on my toes. Writing this fic, for instance. Also, making a banner for it, which could not have been less necessary. :'D

Prompt: Bathing. Merlin calls Arthur a clotpole one too many times, and consequences ensue. Bonus points for somehow incorporating the phrase "that's what she said" in a new and creative way.
Summary: Pretty much what it says on the tin, taking "consequences" to mean "sex!"
Author's Note: I wrote this for a comment/porn meme on [livejournal.com profile] thecityofdis's journal about a year ago. While I was at work. My boss totally stopped by and to ask "what I was working on," which I had known since I started was bound to happen. XD
