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: 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: 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: 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: Convection
Fandom: Fullmetal Alchemist
Characters: Riza & Roy
Rating: PG
Word Count: 1,340
Warnings: various spoilers for Brotherhod; tiny-super-serious-could-kill-a-man-woodsy-huntress-baby!Riza is the only young Hawkeye headcanon I can ever have; don't read this if you're looking for pre-Royai, because you will be disappointed D:
Summary: Roy calls; and Riza answers; and even sixteen years later, she knows him better than he thinks.
Author's Note: This is Sam's fault (from the chimera!Ed RP!). And also Silver's, for calling me out in the best possible way. :'D You guys are two of the most beautiful, brightest little lights in this fandom for me. Thank you both. ♥

When the phone rings on Saturday night, just past eight, Riza is cleaning her guns at the kitchen table and knows exactly who it is. )

Title: 51% Problem Child (Chapter 1)
Fandom: Fullmetal Alchemist
Characters/Pairings: Roy/Ed, Al/Alfons (HELLS YEAH), Hawkeye/Ross; featuring various characters from Brotherhood as well as '03 because all canons should fear me
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?” )

Prompt: Roy/Ed wedding. And everything is fluffy and everyone lives happily ever after *___*
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. )

Title: Sometimes Shit Happens (and It's Not Anybody's Fault, Okay)
Fandom: Fullmetal Alchemist
Pairing: Roy/Al, Miles/Alfons, Ed/batshit
Rating: PG-13
Word Count: 7,760
Warnings: language; cocaína; Al may still be underage depending on your geographical location, so there's that; steamy sexual activity
Summary: Following on after Classifieds and Boy, We're Free: In which Ed's intentions are infallible as he consistently cockblocks everyone.
Author's Note: 1. You know you're marrying the right guy when he sees the first line of this fic in the preview of an email to yourself and reads it aloud, and his only comment is "You're supposed to be working on your novel." 2. If you haven't already guessed that this is a big amalgamation of gorgeous Phindus headcanons and gorgeous Phindus art and not-so-gorgeous Tierfal crack, you must be new around here – RUN WHILE YOU STILL CAN. :D 3. Special thank-you to [livejournal.com profile] eltea for Starcraft consultancy. XD''

“The age of consent in this state is sixteen,” Al howls, “and you’re not Mom!” )

Title: The Maestros of Misuse
Fandom: FMA x HP
Pairing/Characters: Roy/Ed, Team Mustang
Rating: PG-13
Word Count: 6,700
Warnings: language, schmoop and fairly explicit sexual references, utterly half-assed quasi-Britishisms of which I should be ashamed, shoddy editing of which I should also be ashamed, situational spoilers for '03/CoS
Summary: Ed spends a day with the Improper Use of Magic Office, and no one loses their mind more than a little.
Author's Note: Sequel to this damn thing. No more. NO MORE, I SAY. NEVER AGAIN. FINIS. I am 98% dissatisfied with how this turned out, but you couldn't pay me enough to write it again. XD …then again, how about fifty bucks and a Klondike Bar?

At the abominable ringing that hauls him out of the blissful quietude of sleep, Ed buries his face in the pillow and growls his discontentment. )

Title: Bloodlines
Fandom: Fullmetal Alchemist
Characters: Team Mustang, Al
Rating: PG-13
Word Count: 1,009
Warnings: language, major spoilers for '03/CoS
Summary: It's more than the coat that they've got in common.
Author's Note: Speedfic which doesn't come close to measuring up to phindus's heartbreaking sketch, and which sort of accidentally turned into a Frozen Flame prequel. O__o

Al—tiny, warm, breathing, blinking, definitively-not-steely Al—smiles and flips another page of the Worst Handwriting in the Office winner for three years running. )

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: Sin to Win
Fandom: Fullmetal Alchemist
Characters: lightly Roy/Hawkeye, Breda, Havoc, Fuery, Falman, Armstrong, Hughes, Ed, Al
Rating: PG
Word Count: 6,039
Warnings: a bit of PG-13 language, very light kink, mild spoilers for Brotherhood backstory, craaaaaaack~
Summary: Everyone in Colonel Mustang's employ embarks on a mission of vice-achievement. Chaos ensues.
Author's Note: This was inspired by [livejournal.com profile] teenelizabeth, who described Sin to Win being played in one of her workplaces and encouraged me when my predictable response was "FMA CROSSOVER PLZ????" And it would have languished interminably on my hard-drive if not for the amazing cheerleading of [livejournal.com profile] eltea. ♥

“Human Resources just released the results of a survey,” Roy says, “and morale in the Central Command workplace is at an all-time low.” )

Title: The Mustache Mission
Fandom: Fullmetal Alchemist
Characters: Ed, Al, Roy, Hawkeye, Havoc, Falman, Fuery, Breda
Rating: PG
Word Count: 4,616

Summary: Ed and Al have no idea what they're getting into when they let Major Hawkeye recruit them one last time.
Author's Note: This is [livejournal.com profile] powdered_opium's fault. :P And a little bit [livejournal.com profile] koneko_zero's, and a lot bit [livejournal.com profile] icequeenrex's. XD It also owes a great deal to [livejournal.com profile] eltea, whose encouragement was instrumental in getting its incredibly lame author to finish it. ♥ For the record, I have nothing against facial hair in principle; if you have also deplored the the Denial Mustache, you understand. XD

Ed has barely started knocking when Havoc opens the door. )

Title: Good Soldiers
Fandom: Fullmetal Alchemist
Pairings/Characters: girl!Roy/girl!Ed, dude!Hawkeye/girl!Roy, girl!Al
Rating: PG-13
Word Count: 3,219
Warnings: language, mild sexytimes, confused feminism, sheer lack of tact, plentiful cocaine
Summary: Ed is even easier to offend as a girl; Al, likewise, is even more put-upon; Roy is even more evil as a chick; and Hawkeye is even more patient as a dude.
Author's Note: So originally, this was inspired by a kinkmeme prompt asking for "bitchy girl!Roy/girl!Ed." Then it got distracted. Then I dragged it closer to the target again. XD It is, of course, influenced by Flame Vs. Fullmetal – Revisited, which epitomizes all of the glorious, addictive batshittery that is FMA genderswap. :'D …it's also totally [livejournal.com profile] eltea's fault. TOTALLY. Special thank you to [livejournal.com profile] icequeenrex, [livejournal.com profile] powdered_opium, and [livejournal.com profile] koneko_zero for listening to me read out the first part. XD ♥;

Al hates her sister’s meetings with Colonel Mustang. The colonel herself clearly cherishes them. )
