FMA Poster

I don't know if you guys have seen this poster or not, but I was on ebay, browsing FMA products for people to get my Christmas (I have issues deciding on what people should get me and I get yelled at), and came across this poster that was LARGE and so I saved the image to show YOU guys. Here's the link:

Enjoy it!

Fic -- "Bad Days"

Title: Bad Days
Author: naive_wanderer
Rating: PG-13, possibly R for some language? (I really suck at rating things, ugh)
Characters: Alphonse, Ed, some vague Winry
Series: Manga
Warnings: Post-manga. There are no inherent spoilers given that the series hasn't actually ended yet, but it might be good to be reasonably caught-up with the manga if you absolutely want to avoid spoilers!
Summary: Alphonse is recovering, and so is Ed. Sometimes the calm is the worst part.

Notes: This was wr
itten for (blind) prompt 37, "Sensory Overload," over at [info]fma_fic_contest . It won 2nd place! :D I've edited it a bit since it was originally posted over there, as I noticed quite a few errors. You can read the original post here.

( Some days are good days. )

Fake-cut to my journal. X-posted everywhere. :P
Mustang- Your Mom

Question about Mustang's rank in the manga.

I am writing a story for the FMA_Big_Bang Challenge. It is manga-based, and I am having trouble getting an important piece of information.

I was reading quickly over the manga chapters, and it looks like at the beginning of the manga (minus the flashbacks to Ed and Al losing their mom and of course the Ishbal flashbacks later) Roy Mustang is already a Colonel. Is that correct?

If if is not, what chapter (and/or about what part in the story line) does he become a Colonel?

My story starts when they are stationed in East City, a little less than a year before what happens to Hughes (no spoilers!!) and before Mustang and his men are transferred to Central City. (if I did the math right, my story starts in mid 1913, and what happens to Hughes- it happens in early 1914.)

So putting him as a Colonel (and Hughes as a Lt. Colonel) should be correct, right?

Thanks in advance for your help.

FMA character studies?

Hey, sorry to post two in a row, but I am also looking for another resource I had found once before but I cant find the link and I am hoping you guys can help.

There is a Live Journal community that does pairing character stories, like I read one, and it was a character study on Mustang, then a character study on Hughes, then the last part of it was how their characters interacted (in canon, so they were not real pairings.)
At the end of the posting they gave links to information and even links to fics, I believe.

They were really informative and would help me in this fic I am writing.

I am almost positive it was multi fandom and was not FMA specific, though there are at least a couple FMA listings in it.

Thanks again, all.

Quick Question!

Anyone know the exact color of Ling Yao's eyes? I need to know for a a project.

Official images is a plus, all help would be greatly appreciated!

EDIT: Thank you all! I'm going with a very, very dark grey for his eyes and I'll be posting again soon with the reason for the question!

The Prices We Pay

Title: The Prices We Pay
Characters: Roy, Ed, cameo by Hawkeye
Word Count: 13639
Rating: R (warnings for gore, and major manga spoilers for chapters 76-77, maybe a little before and after that as well. Please read responsibly.)
Summary: Only life is equivalent to another life.
A/N: Many fervent thanks go to several people for their assistance with this fic. As always, I owe evil_whimsey enormously for her comments and suggestions, and artemisrae as well, for her own unique perspective. And thanks to beautiful_fic I didn't have to go to med school to keep the details of injury and recovery as realistic as possible. This story wouldn't be what it is now without all their assistance, and I cannot thank them enough.
