An omen for a good year?

So my first day of CPhT classes was today, which brings interesting thoughts to my fangirl mind. One, that in the FMA manga, Xing calls alchemy "pharmacy" (at least, in the manga scanlation I read, that's what it was). And two, I was flipping through my shiny new books during class, and fell upon a history of pharmacy, which included the following paragraph (quoted verbatim):


Swiss Influence
Paracelsus (1493-1541) was born Phillippus Aureolus Theophrastus Bombast von Hohenheim. This Swiss alchemist changed his name to indicate his superiority over the great herbalist, Celsus. A product of the Renaissance, Paracelsus revolutionized pharmacy from a botanical science to the beginnings of a chemical orientation in the profession. He replaced the four body fluids identified by Hippocrates (blood, phlegm, yellow bile, and black bile) with three chemical constituents of the body. Paracelsus was the prime mover in bringing pharmacy from a botanical to a chemical science. Sulfure, mercury, and salter were the materials of the bodyk and drugs were used to overcome excess acid of alkalinity in the body. Alcohols, spirits, acids, and oils were used and mercurials and other minerals.


O_o Probably a repost of a similar biography, but I found it immensely amusing anyway XD. **goes back to homework**

Ed's a woman?!

Being a fairly new (but still quite obsessed) fan of FMA, I had no idea until today that Ed's Japanese voice actor is a woman!

Though I shouldn't be too surprised, since many young male characters are played by females, ie. Bart Simpson.

Was anyone else surprised by this?

[Scar/Al fic] Things That Go Bump in the Night

Fic that was inspired by kishuu_arashi (my beloved Momo), but all stupidity goes to me. This was originally a birthday fic that was written more than a month ago, but I never posted it publically.

Title: Things That Go Bump in the Night (Birthday fic for jade_pen)

Pairing: Scar/Al

Rating: R-15 for implied sex

Type: Fluff? Humor? Beats me...

Note: As much as this fic seems like it’s in Japan due to the names used, it is not, and neither is it in Amestris. This fic pretty much takes place after the Gakuen AU timeline. The setting is based on a certain place that I currently know very well by heart and like a lot, and the basic plot was inspired by my friend kishuu_arashi. Written in the perspective of an original character, but this is not a self-insert or a Mary Sue.

Author's Notes: This was a long time in coming. It's been sitting on my harddrive for at least a month, finished about half-way, unable to go any further.

Dogpile

Aetas: Chapter 2!!

Alright, sorry about the long wait, but here's chapter 2!!

Story: Aetas
Rating: Pg-13

Preview: Al waited for the instructions, but something in his brain stopped. The younger Elric’s mind felt like it had been completely wiped blank, encased in a ball of steel. The memories, thoughts and all other things had just become unobtainable. A feeling of lightheadedness swept over him and he could see the ground no longer.

Fanfiction -- Warped Mirrors part 3; Hagane no Samurai

*scratches the back of her head sheepishly*

Okay, I've got the third part of Warped Mirrors done, but I also found an old fanfic I started... in December. I don't think I ever posted it over here, so I'm including it. If you've seen my samurai!Ed fanart, it goes with that story. ;D

Title: Hagane no Samurai
Rating: PG-13
Summary: A samurai is waylaid on the road to Edo...

Collapse )

Forgive my horrible knowledge of Japanese, both in the context of history and langague. One of these days, I'll get the hang of things. .___.

I don't know if I'll ever sit and contiune on that story. I want to, but I've lost a lot of my linear notes for it. Gotta find the floppy, first. ^^:;

Title: Warped Mirrors
Rating: PGish
Previous Chapters: 1 2
Summary: A regular transmutation goes bizarrely awry and leads to a situation Edward and Alphonse never expected.

Collapse )

*scratches back of neck* Okay, back to writing. I feel productive today. ^^x;;
big gun!

I smell another set of of ficlets coming....

I think I've read far to much Shakespeare in the last few years, and it's affecting my creative juices... not that I'm complaining though. I think that things could go in a very interesting direction from here.

Title: Havoc the Loyal, Part 1
Rating: PG-13
Characters: Roy, Havoc, Hawkeye
Spoilers: Whole series
Notes: Set after the series, after the movie, even. AU I guess. As far as the mention of Meiji, I decided it might be an appropriate name for the Japan of the Hagaren world.

Edit: Fixed a bit of terminology with the gun. Thanks Paul!
