FMA fic - Invidia "Penitence" (5a/6)

Title: Penitence.
Fandom: Fullmetal Alchemist.
Characters: Mostly Envy-Centric.
Series: Invidia.
Chronological Order: Third.
Spoilers: For all the anime, although this piece diverges from the series around the start of episode 32, with little side details.
Beta: DramaQueen, Dynast and istele
Rating: R, for violence (Envy), swearing (Ed).
Genre: Drama
Pairings: Roy/Ed, Scar/Al, though nothing concrete.
Feedback: Please! If you spot typos, grammar, continuity (but bear in mind this is an AU fic), do tell me. I tend to write late at night and although my beta's are skilled, they can't always catch all my slips.
Quote: “The passion of hatred is so long lived and so obstinate a malady that the surest sign of death in a sick person is their desire for reconciliation.” ~Ernest Hemingway.
Word Count: +/- 7 625, on this installment, over all, +/- 50 000 65 000.
Notes: Well, sorry for the delay, my computer, or more accurately, one of my hard drives was killed, and Invidia went down with it. I could rescue some of it, but Penitence - at least the parts that were missing - had to be rewritten. And of course, what does this fic do? It spawns. It's now overly sixty five thousand words and it's frankly scaring me. I broke this installment in two, the next one should be up by the weekend. I hope. Now, well, enjoy the ride, ok?

( “Your problem, pipsqueak,” The Homunculus said almost conversationally, hands turned into claws and slashing through the lines of monsters with a disturbing ease, “Is that you don’t know how to kill things. See?” He tore a throat open, growing more and more satisfied with each victim, “Corpses are pretty darn harmless.” )

FullMetal Alchemist Fan Fic: "On the Wings of a Dream" - Al/Riza Ficlet (Appx. Chapter 10)

FullMetal Alchemist Fan Fic:

Title: "On the Wings of a Dream" - Al/Riza Ficlet (Appx. Chapter 10)

Authors:theregaltigress and crazyloststar
Editor: theregaltigress

Characters: This: Al, Riza, (The Rest of the Fic: Ed, Roy, Havoc, and more. :) )
Rating: This: PG (The Highest in the Rest of the Fic: R)
Genre: AU (sky_dark's BLTA AU, to be precise), This particular section is angst with a side of light romance/hope (The Rest of the Fic: generally Humor, Drama, Angst, Romance, Fluff)
Pairing(s): This: Riza/Al (pending), (The Rest of the Fic: Roy/Ed, mention of Past!Roy/Riza,, Havoc/OC)
Length of this (Mini-)Chapter: 2,513 words
Length of the (Edited) Story to Date: 27,548 words

As this fic is inspired from sky_dark's BLTA (("On the Wings of a Dream" takes place somewhere approximately between BLTA Chapters 7 and 9, so it is a 'tweener fic), so if you haven't read that far into her wonderful fic, you might find a few spoilers within. To get the full impact of this story series, familiarity with "The Adventures of Roy Mustang: Sex Ed Teacher" and its continuation, "Better Living Through Alchemy" would be particularly helpful, but if you aren't, hopefully we can get you up to speed. :) This is based on sky_dark's unique AU "take" on the end of the series, so there are some post-episode 51 "whiffs" and flickers of some movie backstory within the story as a whole. Obviously, since we are not sky_dark, this is not canon to BLTA, but as writers we are trying to stay as true to the characters/events in it as we possibly can. :)

CHAPTER 1: PART 1 (Includes Summary/Prologue) + Art
CHAPTERS 5 - 8+: Editing in Progress
APPX. CHAPTER 9: Riza(/Al) Ficlet
APPX. CHAPTER 10: Al/Riza Ficlet

Notes on This Ficlet:
This particular "mini-chapter" was Written and Edited by theregaltigress, and was written originally to be almost a flashback into Al's past. I wanted to delve into the connection between Al and Riza in Al's earlier years when he was still searching for Ed, and this is the result.

This is meant to take place somewhere towards the end of this "tweener" fic, but I opted to post it now since it's fairly stand-alone and not very plot-centric (since is takes place mostly inside a dream). Generally, it takes place after a military gala Riza (professionaly) attended with Alphonse (all which has been written, but has not been edited and uploaded yet), and before Al's eighteenth/Twenty-Second Birthday and the latter events within BLTA.

That said: Enjoy!

FIC: Gather Us with Dawn (Roy/Ed)

Title: Gather Us with Dawn
Pairing: Roy/Ed
Rating: G
Word Count: 547
Disclaimer: Not mine, blah blah, no money
Summary: Some mornings.
Notes: Drabble, because Physics is so boring. Now I just have to figure out which 7stages prompt this fits with.

He sets out the orange juice because he knows Ed will drink it if it’s put in front of him and puts the coffee on. The newspaper is on the front porch but he decides not to bring it in just yet.

Icon Hotlinking and Theft on LJ

There's a thief out there who has found a way to automatically snag things from the LJ picture feed without regard to who (s)he is stealing from or what they are stealing. No credit is being given at all for any of the icons being taken and people posting comments there do not care things are being stolen. All they seem to care about is laughing at people who are demanding this person take the icons down. Just today I found one of my icons on that community so I'm very certain there are icons from others in this very community out there. Also, it seems it's not just icons too it's people's pictures so any related community that posts personal photos should take the same steps as the iconists. Here's the information and what you can do about it as found on book_icons.

I tried making a multi-fandom RP almost 3 times now, all of them being mostly betas and seeing which ideas worked best. I'm now thinking about scrapping my old idea completely, and start all over by scratch. But also thinking about having the RP on GL than LJ. Since it's less crowded, and I like the 2000 free icon feature(and seems like many other bells and whistles that you normally pay to get on LJ as well).

Is there ANY suggestions for this? Good? Bad? Maybe? This there anyone even the slightest interested in joining? I'm serious, I want to know what people think...

A/N: Three drabbles about Winry that bunnied earlier today as I was thinking about my in-progress fic "Errands of the Eye" (aka "Winry and Paninya go to the movies"), which is by-golly going to get finished someday!

Sometimes she wishes they hadn't called. Mostly, she wonders whether to call him back.
