Crack icons, and a crack muse meme.

I've been making so many icons recently, especially FMA icons, I decided to start posting them again. After all, that's what this LJ is for. :) Beware, for most are crack, but there are a few plains (no text) and a few serious (angsty).

Here's 3 to tease you, the rest are linked (click the third icon). 8)

And clicking on this icon will take you to the rest of the icons:

Credit to either spurkycreations OR grygon in the comments section of your icon page, please. :)

If you recall my crack fanart portfolio for FMA then come help me continue it with a totally new theme by taking my Where Does Your Muse Live Meme.

[Fan Fic Challenge/Contest] Sues and Crossovers (Deadline: August 7)

Hello, hello! A few weeks ago I posted some information about a contest in which authors were to write a believable Mary Sue or crossover story - due to the bad rap the 'genres' often get. The goal was to prove that even though fics of the sort are looked down on in the FMA fandom, there can also be well-written versions.

The deadline was originally July 31. However, since (a) there aren't very many enties and (b) I won't be able to set up the voting section until August 7 anyway, there will be an extension for the contest deadline.

To get to the point... SueCross fan fiction challenge entries will be accepted up until midnight of August 7th.

(For more information on the FMA SueCross challenge, visit this webpage.)

Thank you!

OMG Sliefoxx has drawing SKILLZ

XD Here's what I was doing instead of writing.

I haven't drawn for real in almost two years, so I decided to use Edward for an expirement. X3

Er ... tell me what's wrong with him. Besides his legs. Gawd I hate that he looks like he's trying to do the CanCan. He was supposed to be doing this mid-air jump-kick thingy, and he looks like he's trying to CanCan.

Same thing, right??

His upper body looks kewl. -^^-;

(Fic) Overhaul, Part 2

Title: Overhaul, Part 2
Author: Serenanna
Pairing: Ed/Winry
Genre: Romance, Humor, Smut!
Words: 11,000+, about 6,000 in the second chunk
Beta: Uncreditted at the time, but I love him/her for helping me! Aff.net beta readers are the best!
Rating: NC-17 to be safe, but about as bad as most romance novels
Disclaimer: I don’t own Full Metal Alchemist or any of the characters. I’m just borrowing them to play with. I’ll return them later after, promise.
Warnings: Over-used plot hook, general goof-ups of canon, squicky if you can’t take reading missing limbs. Did I mention smut? If you’re under 18, leave now before your virgin eyes are scarred forever, if you’re over 18, enjoy!
Notes: 10 to 1 most of the people reading this have found it on ff.net, aff.net, mediaminer.org, or Ficwad. I cross-post on archives like a fiend. That said, baring any more grammar goof ups, this is the definitive version of the story broken down in two parts. X-posted all over creation. Other installments are on the other archives under the same penname, Serenanna, but are very un-corrected. So, here's the ending!

Scimitar Smile Green Lion 2006 Contest

Starting today, Scimitar Smile is hosting its second Green Lion fanfiction contest, from now until 11:59 PM September 30, 2006. SS is hosting this contents in the hopes of inspiring new authors in Fullmetal Alchemist to put their works forward, inspiring old authors to try something new, and in producing plenty of enjoyable and exciting fics for fans of all tastes -- yaoi, het, or gen. We hope to offer lots of fun, good fics to read, participation and exposure, and, of course, plenty of prizes!

Judging will be done by a panel of volunteer judges, but there will also be the opportunity for readers to vote for their favorite, and a webmaster's award will be given on top of that. And, of course, a single grand prize award for the fic judged best in show!

•The normal prize will be an amazon.com gift certificate worth $15... in other words, equivalent to the cost and shipping of one volume of the Fullmetal Alchemist manga.
•The grand prize will be an amazon.com gift certificate worth $25... in other words, equivalent to the cost and shipping of one DVD of the Fullmetal Alchemist anime. Of course, you can always spend these certificates on other things, if you can imagine anything that could possibly be better to spend it on...
•Winners may also opt to take a Livejournal.com gift certificate of equal worth.

Entries for this contest will not be required to adhere to a theme, but if authors wish to have a prompt to consider, the theme for this contest is: Final transmutation.

To find out more about the categories, judging, and submission information for this contest, visit the full information page on Scimitar's webpage, or the livejournal entry where you can ask questions.

Pairing: Roy x Edward
Rating: PG-13
Notes: Part of the Roy/Ed 45 themes, under 'Chance', though to be honest, I'm not sure if this one fits the bill. Hope you'll like it. ^^

Title: Holy Mother
Sometimes she wished that none of this had ever happened to her.
Rating: G/K
Disclaimer: If I owned FMA, then I wouldn’t be poor and this wouldn’t be a fanfic.
Notes I wrote this because . . . well, I thought that Trisha Elric was portrayed very one-sided from the eyes of two boys that adored and deified her. But even perfect mothers have low moments sometimes, especially when their husbands abandon them with no word to take care of two small children by themselves.
