This fic comes as a direct result of inspiration from the 'Warped Mirrors' and 'Negative Concepts' series by catystorm
, respectively. However, while theirs are mostly light and humorous pieces, this one is considerably darker. The reasons are twofold: (1) I can't write comedy very well and (2) Dark stuff is fun. My 'Divergent History' series will also differ from theirs in that it's set in the parallel world and will not (at least initally) involve characters from each world meeting each other. Originally, I hadn't planned it that way, but I came to realize that I wanted to explore the world before I considered bringing the characters we all know into it.
This and future installments will eventually be found in my community for the series, divergentseries
, which will run much like faulty_wish
. That is, anyone can write in the universe, but I hold the ultimate decision on whether to make it part of the canon. I'll only rule it as a divergent plot if it directly contradicts other ideas I have already (of course, there's also the possibility of me liking the not-me version more than my idea). I'm doing it because I have no illusions that I can cover a reflection of the entire mirror world by myself. So just keep your eyes on the community for specific rules and details if you are intrigued by this first installment.
Without further rambling from me, my first foray into the 'Divergent History' world:Title:
Tools for TransmutationSummary:
The 'Divergent History' series takes a look at a dark reflection of the FMA world. This installment examines the parallel of one of the key events from the real FMA world: namely, the attempted resurrection of Trisha by Ed and Al. Except in D!World, Hohenheim is still around and is hardly the remorseful man we see in the series.Genre/Rating:
AU, no pairings, PG-13 (for goriness related to the transmutation)( Collapse )
On an unrelated note, I've moved to El Paso, TX, so if any of you are in the area and want to hang out, feel free to get in touch.
That said, I'm out!
