[Fic] Changed For Good - Chapter 11

Title: Changed for Good - Chapter 11: Everything Goes to Hell
Author: miss_arel
Rating: Overall, NC-17; this chapter is PG.
Summary: The fallout, the trial, the aftermath.
Spoilers: As always, yes.
Word Count: 4423

What is Changed For Good? Changed For Good is a project I started last August, based on a very simple idea: What if, back in episode 7, Ed and Al hadn't arrived too late? What if they had saved Nina, but at a price? Now it's eleven chapters long, over 130 pages long, close to 60,000 words and spanning eight years of storyline. It is, in short, the longest thing I've ever written, and I hope that you'll read and enjoy it. Despite my inability to summarize things in an interesting way.

Missed a chapter? All previous chapters of Changed For Good are archived on Skyehawke and Ficwad.

+ Clean
Community/Theme: 52_flavours; 16, how fire took water to wife
Rating: T (PG)
Notes: No real spoilers in terms of what happened; this could apply to either manga or anime. Pure WAFFy fluff here. Well, fluff'n'angst. It's short, and considering the theme, of course it would be WAFFy.
Word Count: 427
Summary: If he touched her with those hands, dirty with war and blood and death, then she would be covered with it too. He couldn't do that, not to her.

+ Burnt Snow
Community/Theme: 52_flavours; 7, snow falling on corpses
Rating: T (PG-13; for imagery)
Notes: Based off the manga!verse. I don't recall seeing any mention of Hughes' rank during Ishbal, so I'm going off the assumption he's a captain, or at least held that rank at some point during the war. If anyone can correct or verify this with canon, I'd appreciate it.
Word Count: 1222
Summary: She could almost make herself believe that the soft haze of white, illuminiated under the moon and stirring up in the air at the cold wind creeping over the desert dunes, was snow.

+ Promises
Community/Theme: 30_smiles; #3, no promises
Rating: R, for adult situations.
Notes: The setting would be the East HQ, and can fit in within either the manga or anime continuity.
Word Count: 1075
Summary: The lighting was as harsh as reality in the aftermath. Little by little, she became aware of discomforts; sweat-slick skin sticking to the hard, black leather cushions.


+ Chrysalis
Community/Theme: 30_kisses; #2, news; letter
Rating: PG
Notes: Anime continuity, spoilers for full series.
Word Count: 924
Summary: She could never go back again to who she was before; too much time had passed in the world she followed them into, and too much had changed.

Mod Post - regarding off-topic posts

We would like to take this chance to attempt to define what is and isn't regarded as off-topic. These points are, of course, presently open for discussion.

First, we'll post the general gist of what came up in the mods' discussion, which should give you a general idea of what's expected. A more in-depth version is provided under the cut. We encourage reading it to gain a thorough understanding.

We intend to place restrictions on the following:

a). Posts that only relate to FMA by a character name.

b). Posts that rely solely on fandom injokes. Edit: Changed based on the results of this poll

c). Posts that focus on real life events not directly related to FMA.

Therefore, before you post, please consider the following questions:

a). If I changed the name of a character, and made the same post, would it be at all recognizable as FMA?

b). Would someone new to the fandom, who wasn't around for past famous jokes and discussions, still understand what I am talking about?

c). Will this be meaningful, and recognisable as FMA, to people in other places or countries, who aren't undergoing the same real-life experiences as I am?

Fandom Survey Part Two

Thanks so much for everyone's responses on the FMA Fandom Survey. ^_^ It was great to see everyone's responses, and I'm glad that everyone took the time and interest to participate.

I would like to post an analysis of the survey sometime later in the week, after I have the chance to go through the individual posts and tally them up. If you have not yet taken the time to respond, you can do so here. To make it easier to have a final count, I'll give everyone until September 13th at Midnight, Eastern Standard Time to finish up their answers. Any posts after that will not be accounted for, as I'll probably have already started my analysis. (Mods, if there's any way to freeze/lock that post by that time, that would also make things a lot easier.)

Thanks again for participating, and expect a report by the end of the week! ^_^

 I know it says not to post asking where to find anything. So feel free to bite my head off for this.
But where might one be able to find FMA mood themes? I looked everywhere in here and could not find where to find one. Sorry if I have mislooked it.

Mod Post: In-Joke Poll

Due to the responses in this post:

the mods have decided to put the "in-joke posting" issue up for public vote. If this issue matters to you at all, please spread this around. Everyone who cares, please make sure you take the time to actually vote.

You will have 24 hours from when this poll was posted to cast your vote. Any votes cast after 6pm PST tomorrow will not be counted.

Thanks for your time ^.^

EDIT: I just realized I forgot to say how we're defining in-jokes here. The definition we're going by is "a reference to the FMA fandom that does not directly include anything from the canon."

And many many more, here!

And, there's a Hughes icon in there, but it's a fanart, I think. A fanart that the artist might have wanted me to NOT edit. Please let me know and I will remove it from the public eye. I found it a long time ago on this community.
