Cosplay trouble... >.>

Murr. Yes. So I'm an idiot and I procrastinated my Ed costume until tonight ^^;; My friends and I are having a FMA US premiere get-together thing, and so I'm sudo-dressing up as Ed (just the coat, maybe the jacket if by some bizarre stroke of luck I get another 4 hours to work on it ^^;; ), but here's the thing - this pattern is a total bitch, and I'm not letting the costume out of my closet after this party because the pattern sucks so hardcore >.> Does anyone have a better pattern than McCalls' 3800? This one has so many useless... things on it >.< Seams and linings and whatnot. I want to remake the costume after this (not only because of the pattern; I had no reference picture, so the color of red I chose is a little brighter than I'd prefer), syoo... any tips on a better pattern?

My first official FMA fanart, just in time for the english premier!!


I have spent far too many hours on this bloody thing for anybody NOT to look at it.

Lineart can be found here.

I will post the original pencil sketch if anybody wants to see it.

PLEASE comment - i really want to know what you think!

New Format?

Just dropped in on the community and noticed that it was different. Now I can actually read the titles of the newest topics. XD;

And uh...I just like the new comments thing.

Yes, random post. I make too many of these. Just wanted to say I like.

Ed Wedding ficness!

This fic was written as a prequel of sorts to my fic "Ménage". Contains reference to Ed/Al, Ed/Scieszka, Scieszka/Winry, and Al+Winry, so if you ph33r any of those pairings you may not enjoy this fic. X3

Title: I Promise You Gold
Pairings: Mentioned above; AlxEd, EdxScieszka, ScieszkaxWinry
Rating: PG-13
Category: Fluff, sap, light angst
Author's notes: Goes in the same universe as "Ménage".

Hallo! I'm LilyChan and I'm pretty new to the series. However, I've already taken a liking to Ed. xD Pretty blondes are my kind of boys. ;P <3

Anyways, I'm planning to watch the premiere tonight on Adult Swim. ^^; Okay. I'll shut up now.

Two more fics. I'm amused by the fact that I went from one extreme to the other just a few hours. *grins*

First is Temptation, which I dedicate to Pride, because she inspired it.

Next is Cold, which I blame on the Fabric Alchemist. It was equivalent trade for the Lust!Roy picture she drew me.

I plead for feedback, as I am a greedy fiend who enjoys it. *smirks*

Hello all! I never really got around to joining the community 'till now. So..hi. Yeah. :D

Anyway, to make this post not completely useless, I bring some art.

[p.s. if this is violating the "comment if there's been a recent post w/ same topic" rule, feel free to yell at me/delete it. I don't know if introductory posts count for this or not.]

More about the new fan stuff (Sorry, I was gone all day.)

I realized that olderfans should be "Fans 1" and new fans should be "Fan A" (Adult Swim), but if people like the other way better, that's okay. A good way to test the new fans to see if they read the rules is if they put a A in their subject. And us new fans could put a '1'. If it applies to both just put "1A". It seems like unneccesay, but it could avoid some wank. If people don't think this will happen, I point to the Wolf's Rain community, who had new fans getting mad at older fans for discussing things undercuts. I think it was on f_w, too.

About monitiring the posts for the fist works seems like a good idea for atherlin, then I'd be more then happy to be a temp. mod if needed, since I'm on the community quite alot.

But, regaurding FAQ, I'll start it off. You guys can add more, then I'll try condescing them.

That's all I can think of, up to you guys now.

Character Apperances

I went through the first 9 episodes of the show and pulled out when we’ll meet certain characters. In case anyone’s interested in tuning in to hear the English Dub equivalent of their favorite characters, without necessarily watching it every week.

Episode 1 Dub Response

So...since a few lucky people here have gotten to see the first episode dubbed, but most of us haven't seen it -all- in it's entirety, is it alright if I make a little post/thread about our responses to FMA's dub, which will be sweeping across America in just a few short hours?

I was thinking like a ongoing comments thread.....but, well, if it seems to spammy to you, I apologize, as this is my first -post- I've made to the community. (Oh, well I've posted plenty of responses and all, just never a new topic ^__^)

Oh, and Aaron Dismuke, I’ve got my eye on you. As much as I think it’s great that you’re acting at your young age, I hope you can pull off Al’s lines, many of which are tend to be a little….um, existential as the series go on. So don’t let me down. :)
Hope this post wasn’t worthless!

Screenshots & Icons

I made some screenshots of (mainly) Ed and Al from episode 3 earlier today. I'm not sure if they'll actually be of much interest to anyone, but if nothing else they're good for making icons. ^^

Two separate posts so dial-up people won't die waiting for them to load.
Screenshots part 1
Screenshots part 2

Also, since I made this disturbingly humorous icon, I figured I'd add it too, with the textless version and the "OTP" version.

I come to you with my caps lock button now off and a request for people to do the same.

This is what shall be called "A Preventative Measure Step". Sort of the same idea that was made when *whomever-it-was-I've-forgotten* made a plea to the community about reactions to episode 51.

I certainly hope I'm not overstepping any boundries! Delete this if you wish~

Anyways, I'm begging you, emploring you, and asking you really really nicely to behave with respect. Anime dubs are sticky subjects. I know that the thoughts are going to be good, bad and otherwise, but when you want to discuss them please have your brains turned on. I can see insensitivity waiting for an opportunity to bite us all. Everyone has their own views, their own oppinions - show some respect to them. I know there are sub-elitests out there, anti-dub people out there, anti-FUNi people out there, and other such entities... I think if people want to have their opinions appreciated, some respect should be given in how those opinions are voiced.

Everyone's entitled to their own opinion on the dub - but if your opinion is simply meant to flame so your voice can be heard or to get people upset/frustraited rather than entering into a productive conversation of opinions - perhaps you should find another vessel/post to convey your thoughts in. I know that there's a great deal of the community looking forward to tonight, looking forward to discussing the good, bad, and otherwise... I'd hope that we can keep bitterness/frustraition/anger to a rational level and become remain the greater fandom that the new fans will have to bow down to look up to :D

Please re-watch Bambi if you believe further explination is required.

Cosplay Pics

Well kinda. Somehow I managed to wear this for an entire picnic thing and only got one picture of it. It was kinda last minute. Thanks to school and such I had to make it the day before (cause heaven forbid I wear the same costume to 2 events...) but I got it done in about 3-4 hours and I think it turned out pretty good, aside from the fact that I had the blade on the wrong hand (image has been flipped to 'fix' that ^_~) and left my glasses on for the picture =P

Hopefully next weekend I'll have Envy finished and I can get a full photoshoot done. For all the rush and last-minuteness I really like how this costume turned out!

Unsettling Affairs, Part 3: Private Lesson (Fic Update, PLEA TO RPERS!)

Before I get to the fic update, I'd like to ask you guys. We need a new Alphonse for our RP group, as well as a few original chimeras (most specifics already chosen, but we're in need of four chimeras), and the remaining two Sins, Gluttony and Lust. I can't stress enough how important these characters are to developing the story! We NEED them as soon as possible! If you would like to RP with us, please respond to this post with what character you'd be willing to RP!

Title: Unsettling Affairs Part 3/?
Rating: PG13-R+ (AKA I'm too lazy to write a full blown sex scene.)
Pairings: HavocxEd
Warnings: I don't own FMA. This fic will contain strong language, descriptive intimate scenes most likely between two or more men. By US standards, Ed is still a minor and anything involving Ed and pretty much anybody besides Al would be seen, by most, as illegal, however, in Japan, consent laws are set to the age of sixteen, which by this time in the story, Ed has reached, making it perfectly legal, and I like Japan so nya. If you don't like this, don't read. SHOUNEN-AI/YAOI AS WELL AS HET AND POSSIBLE SHOUJOU-AI/YURI. Lemons included, not suitable for children under...whatever...I always hated age limit things, it's your decision, but you've been warned.
Spoilers: Well…I don’t think it’s really spoiler, it’s just Rped semi-smut..
Setting: Train to Central from Dublith.
Timeline: About a week after Al is restored.
Credits: Havoc and Izumi written by neko_yasha001, Edward written by xkesshoux
