Title:The Phoney War, Chapter Two: Make Your Mind Up Time
Setting: Fullmetal Alchemist, mangaverse, post-series, yet plotted out way last year: this 'verse is AU on a few plot points from 104-108. Details here!
Characters: Roy/Ed (UST), Havoc/Rebecca, Riza/Miles, Al, Winry, ensemble.
Warnings: This chapter: a mere PG-13 for mention of gore. Will be NC-17 overall.
Word count: 4479
Summary: two years on from the Promised Day. Amestris is without a Fuhrer. In the military, Mustang's faction of reformers are locked in struggle with General Hakuro's old guard, who are are developing an alchemical weapon that makes the Immortal Army look harmless. Civil war seems inevitable. As the battle lines are drawn up, Team Mustang search urgently for Hakuro's secret weapon and meanwhile, struggle to get from day to day knowing that tomorrow could be the day that everything comes crashing down …
Notes: Direct sequel to No Small Injury. A heads-up: the plotty plot continues, but the Roy/Ed in this one is going to be mostly explicit rather than subtexty. Illustrated fic is illustrated (by me). Betaed and edited by [livejournal.com profile] enemytosleep, and additional thanks to [livejournal.com profile] cornerofmadness for surgical and wound care know-how, and to [livejournal.com profile] enemytosleep again for Al's State Alchemist name. You guys should probably know that her other suggestion was Reacharound. XD

Chapter One: Blue Monday )
bob_fish: (can't talk scheming)
Title:No Small Injury, Chapter Nine: Interesting Times
Setting: Fullmetal Alchemist, mangaverse, post-series, yet plotted out way last year. Hence is now AU on significant plot points.
Characters: Roy/Ed (UST and subtext), Havoc/Rebecca, Al, Hawkeye, ensemble.
Warnings: R for sweary mouths
Word count: 8113
Summary: two years on from the Promised Day. As Mustang's faction struggles for power with Hakuro's, the Amestrian Army is one gunshot away from a civil war. Now someone may have fired that shot.
Notes: Illustrated fic is illustrated (by me). [livejournal.com profile] enemytosleep has betaed both fic and illos wonderfully. I seriously couldn't have done it without her. A round of applause for her, please!
More notes: This is the final chapter! A sequel is in the works. In the meantime, those curious about what really went on in Riza's stay in Miles' apartment can find out here.
Super bonus omake fun: DIY omake! Ask the characters any question in this thread, and, channelled by me, they will answer it.

Title: Domestication
Characters: Riza/Miles, Hayate, Roy, a little Havoc/Rebecca
Setting: mangaverse, post-series, slight AU (see notes)
Rating: PG-13
Word count: 6666
Summary: She'd been to war! She'd slept in a tent! She'd used co-ed, outdoor latrines in the desert! There was absolutely no reason temporarily sharing quarters with him should be a problem.
Notes:: originally written for [livejournal.com profile] fmagiftexchange Round 2, for the prompt Miles/Riza (and if they factor into the story at all, Roy/Ed), the battle is over, and Miles and Riza start to hit it off. Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] enemytosleep for bunnying, kickass dog nerding and a sterling beta job; and to the prompter for his/her patience in waiting for this fic, which was rather delayed by RL stuffs.
More notes: Wrong Turn 'verse. This is a side fic to No Small Injury and takes place during that story. However, it was written so that you don't have to have read that story to enjoy this. If you haven't read No Small Injury, all you need to know is that in this post-manga 'verse (which was plotted out around Chapter 99) Olivia Armstrong lost her life duelling Wrath hardcore on the Promised Day. Amestris is currently Fuhrer-less, and Team Mustang are struggling with the old guard to gain control of the military and avert a civil war. The old guard, now headed up by Hakuro, are mixed up in some very dark business involving taboo alchemy. Team Mustang investigate and find themselves targetted by hired assassins.


This wouldn't do. Absolutely not. )
bob_fish: (slap slap kiss)
Title:No Small Injury, Chapter Eight: Some Things Never Change
Setting: Fullmetal Alchemist, mangaverse, post-series, yet plotted out way last year, so potential spoilers only up to around Ch 100. Hence: contains NO 108 spoilers, and potentially AU.
Characters: Roy/Ed (UST and subtext), Havoc/Rebecca, Al, Hawkeye, ensemble.
Warnings: R for sweary mouths and a bit of violence. WRITTEN BEFORE 108, DOES NOT CONTAIN 108 SPOILERS
Word count: 9768
Summary: two years on from the Promised Day. As Mustang's faction struggles for power with Hakuro's, the Amestrian Army is one gunshot away from a civil war. Now someone may have fired that shot.
Notes: Illustrated fic is illustrated (by me). [livejournal.com profile] enemytosleep betaed both fic and illos wonderfully. The kinetics of the Ed illo and the monster design particularly benefited from her advice this issue.
More notes: this fic is now nine chapters long. The final chapter is finished and about to go to beta, and will be going up asap with super bonus omake fun. A sequel is in the works.
A NOTE ON SPOILERS: Just to be on the safe side, if your comment contains 108 spoilers, could you post it behind spoiler text like so, only replacing [] with <>: [font color="ffffff"] spoilerness goes here [/font]

It's late. It's very very late. It's two months late. But here it is? So sorry about the delay, [livejournal.com profile] havocmangawip, thanks so much for your patience, and I hope you enjoy it. XD


Title: Renovations
Characters: Gracia, Elysia, Havoc/Sciezka (UST, dudes)
Word count: 3327
Rating: PG
Summary: before she works out Plan B, Gracia has a few things to get done around the house.
Notes: written for [livejournal.com profile] havocmangawip, for her generous [livejournal.com profile] help_haiti auction donation. This story takes place in her ongoing 'verse, specifically during Chapters 2 to 8 of Jean Havoc: a Work in Progress. The low-down here is that after the events of Chapter 38 of the manga, Jean has been discharged from hospital and comes to stay with Gracia in Central while he rehabilitates. This story was written as a companion piece to WIP, so will probably be at its best if you've read at least the early chapters of that. Go read it here! Thoughtful, complex slice-of-life drama, romantic comedy, cheeky smut, plottiness, minor characters getting lots of nuanced development, and a fantastic, human and very lovable Havoc at the centre of it all. I hereby rec it.
Also notes: thanks so much to [livejournal.com profile] cornerofmadness for the beta and translation services from the British. EDIT: And thanks to [livejournal.com profile] enemytosleep for commenting on an early draft and steering me right.


The first thing Gracia bought after her husband died was a stepladder.  )

Title:No Small Injury, Chapter Six: Spare the Excuses
Setting: Fullmetal Alchemist, mangaverse, post-series so potential spoilers right up to Chapter 100. Highly likely to be jossed and end up AU.
Characters/pairings: Roy/Ed (UST and subtext), Havoc/Rebecca Catalina, Al, Hawkeye, ensemble.
Warnings: R for sweary mouths and a bit of violence.
Word count: 11168
Summary: two years on from the Promised Day. As Mustang's faction struggles for power with Hakuro's, the Amestrian Army is one gunshot away from a civil war. Now someone may have fired that shot.
Notes: Illustrated fic is illustrated (by me). As ever, thanks for superb beta-age of both fic and illos to [livejournal.com profile] enemytosleep. This time she betaed in the midst of major house renovations, so please be giving her double the applause. Extra thanks this issue to papa enemytosleep for vintage car advice, and to [livejournal.com profile] cornerofmadness and papa cornerofmadness for gun and ballistics information.

Extra bonus fun! [livejournal.com profile] enemytosleep wrote me a Wrong Turn 'verse fic for [livejournal.com profile] fmagiftexchange. It rocks, and [livejournal.com profile] enemytosleep writes the most spot-on, hilarious Rebecca ever. See Rebecca and Havoc attempt to set Riza up on a blind date in "Friday Night, Date Night" over on enemy's lj.

ETA: extra extra potential bonus fun! I'm offering fic and art - not just FMA! - at the Haiti charity auction. Please do bid if you feel moved to do so. I'll do all kinds of pairings and genres not covered in this fic, so if you fancy a little Royai or Ling/Ran Fan, or - shock! gen, you know what, I'll totally oblige.

Notes: Illustrated fic is illustrated (by me). Many thanks are owed to star beta of fic and illos [livejournal.com profile] enemytosleep. Sorry about the bit of a wait this time, guys - this chapter kicked my ass at first.

Notes: Illustrated fic is illustrated (by me). Many thanks once more to my fabulous beta [livejournal.com profile] enemytosleep . Sequel to my previous fics Wrong Turn and Fight On, Second Lieutenant! - but you don't have to read those to read this! 

Chapter One: the Way to a Man's Heart 

It said a lot about the difficulties of the Flowers case that, as Roy ploughed through a stack of documents on the murder, he was actually becoming tempted to attack his in-tray instead. )
bob_fish: (Default)
My small but perfectly formed flist may have heard me go on about a multi-part sequel to Wrong Turn. This is it! There will be mystery, action, suspense, cliffhangers, chapter illustrations, hopefully a few lulz and of course, buckets of sexual tension. This is also a sequel to Fight On, Second Lieutenant!, because Havoc and Rebecca won't leave my brain alone. Not necessary to read either before you read this fic, but if you're curious about how Havoc ended up back in the army and fraternising with Rebecca, do look up the latter.

No Small Injury, Chapter One: the Way to a Man's Heart


Setting: Fullmetal Alchemist, mangaverse, post-series so potential spoilers right up to Chapter 98. Practically guaranteed to be jossed. 
Characters/pairings:

Summary: two years on from the Promised Day. Amestris is an unstable and changeable place. Mustang's faction is locked in a fierce, nominally legal power struggle with Hakuro's, and the Amestrian Army is one gunshot away from a civil war. Now it looks like someone may have fired that shot. Meanwhile, Alphonse is on the verge of a discovery, Mustang could really use some sleep, and Rebecca and Havoc totally aren't getting any work done. Perhaps more worryingly still, the Fullmetal Alchemist is bored, heartbroken and at a loose end.
Notes: Illustrated fic is illustrated (by me). Many, many thanks to my ace beta [Bad username or unknown identity: enemytosleep.]If you're currently trying to remember who Rebecca is, we first meet her in Ch. 83 of the manga, here


Oh dear Lord, this was absolutely criminal. )
bob_fish: (nobody understands Anakin)
 
So, this came out ... different. Another [livejournal.com profile] fma_ihop  kink meme fic, and yet again I delivered something so subtexty it was practically gen (why can't I let poor Roy get some action?). The lulz this time are sadly largely unintentional: egged on by the anonymity of the meme and still stoned from the blood-splattered, deep-fried awesomeness of ep 19 of Brotherhood, I wrote me some self-indulgent aaaaangst. Luckily the prompter also liked them some angst, so that's two of us who had fun. My other excuse for getting this thing out of my system was that it might be good for keeping the like from infecting the plotty, multi-chapter action/mystery thingy I'm currently drafting. Not sure as of yet whether that worked. 
 
Intermission
Fullmetal Alchemist, Roy/Riza in a subtexty, really h/c way. Guest appearances from Madam Christmas and a very drugged-up Havo. 
Mangaverse, spoilers for the epic slice of awesome that is Chapter 39 and ep 19 of Brotherhood. 
PG-13 for a wee bit of blood and guts.  Worksafe, that apart. 
2032 words. 
Summary: It had been something of a long night. 
Note: unbetaed, polished a little from its incarnation on the meme, and so appallingly angsty I had to use my special emo Anakin icon. 

Of course he'd made them take Havoc first. )

Last chapter of my [livejournal.com profile] fma_ihop kinkmeme fic for [livejournal.com profile] sara_rojo. First chapter is here, second chapter is here. I had a ludicrous amount of fun writing this, so thanks for the prompt, Sara! I've ended up having so much fun with these versions of the characters that I'm very tempted to get to work on a sequel - in which of course I'd be honour bound to resolve some of this ridiculous sexual tension. 

Title: Wrong Turn: Chapter Three of Three
Characters: Roy/Ed-ish, Hawkeye, Al.
Setting: Mangaverse, spoilers up to about Ch. 35 or thereabouts.
Rating: R for Ed's swears.
Word count: 4127 words. Whole fic comes in at 13478 words - pretty impressive, I think, given the thinness of my plot here.
Summary: On the battlefield, others saw the Colonel as a courageous and inspiring leader and a devastating human weapon; she saw the sixteen-year old boy who had once fallen off her father's roof trying to show her he could stand up without a handhold. 
Note: Thus far unbetaed, but would be delighted if anyone fancied beta-ing. Contains action, peril, mockery, cheap jokes and unresolved sexual tension. 

Hawkeye was surrounded by idiots. )

The second chapter of my [livejournal.com profile] fma_ihop kinkmeme fic for [livejournal.com profile] sara_rojo. First chapter is here.

Title: Wrong Turn: Chapter Two of Three
Characters: Roy/Ed-ish, Al, Hawkeye, ensemble.
Setting: Mangaverse, spoilers up to Ch. 35 or thereabouts.
Rating: R for Ed's swears.
Word count: 3586 words.
Summary:Who the hell put on fancy cologne to go chase thugs down a bunch of damp tunnels?
Note: Contains action, peril, mockery, cheap jokes and unresolved sexual tension.

If it hadn't been for that idiot Mustang, they could have been out of there in five minutes. )

This extended piece of silliness was originally written for [livejournal.com profile] sara_rojo as part of the [livejournal.com profile] fma_ihop kinkmeme. Her prompt was that she wanted a kickass Ed making mincemeat of some poor bad guy, rescuing Roy, Al or Ling, and making them swoon with his sheer excellence. I tried to oblige. Check out the meme if you haven't been already, it's full of awesome fic.

Title: Wrong Turn: Chapter One of Three
Characters Roy/Ed-ish, Al, Hawkeye.
Setting: Mangaverse, spoilers up to about Ch. 35 or thereabouts.
Rating: R for Ed's swears.
Word count: 5763 words.
Summary: This really was turning out to be a day of surprises, thought Roy.
Note: Thus far unbetaed, but would be delighted if anyone fancied beta-ing. Contains action, peril, mockery, cheap jokes and unresolved sexual tension.

It had all gone so utterly wrong so quickly. )
