fractured_chaos and mfelizandy

A/N: While this is not a companion piece to mfelizandy's "Estvarya", there are some common elements. Mainly the Ishvarun culture and language (and both stories' primary location), but I highly recommend reading it. -- "fractured_chaos"

(ETA: I'm a terrible friend! I posted this plug for "Estvarya", and forgot to add the link! **fails**)

And to prove that we seriously need a life: We have an Ishvaran Glossary. With not only the definitions of words used in both stories, but cultural notes, as well. This is an on-going project, and there will be new words and definitions added frequently, so check back often!


Pride Art?

Does anyone have any super creepy/awesome pictures of Pride (manga version, obviously) kicking around on their PC that they can share? I'd love you guys forever. Whenever I look for art of him, all that turns up is art for that accursed fan game, so I'm obviously doing something wrong. :[

(Um, obviously the comments will have manga spoilers, so if you don't know who Pride is in the manga, maybe just refrain from clicking.)

Thaaaaanks. :>

FMA Big Bang - The Missing General

Title: The Missing General
Author: mintysage
Genre: Action/Adventure
Rating: PG
Characters/Pairings: Multiple/Canon pairings; hints of Havoc/Rebecca
Warnings: Mild violence
Setting: Post-Manga

Summary: Years out of the military, after the Promised Day, Edward Elric has settled down and embraces the challenges of raising two growing kids. As far as he is concerned, life is peaceful... until his past comes back to ask the former State Alchemist for help.

General Roy Mustang has gone missing, and with no one able to find any clues on his whereabouts, Ed (with Alphonse in tow) sets out to trace the General's steps back to the very places the brothers visited while in the military.

Meanwhile, Roy Mustang has an inexplicable run-in with a past he didn't know he had, a past that could spell trouble for the Xingese and the Emperor himself!

Comments: This story was one of the longest and probably toughest projects I've ever had to participate in. It tested my patience and my willingness to finish a story and not leaving it halfway done. What I loved about it was getting to toss Ed and Al into another adventure after the manga and "Brotherhood" ended, what with having them embrace their new found lives with their new families in the process. It also let me explore Roy's past and who his parents might have been, though some of it may have been downright exaggerated. ;) At any rate, I do hope you enjoy reading this story as much as I had writing it.

Much thanks to my beta reader, kristensk, for the pointers, the late-night encouragement, and her Red Pen of Justice(TM) that killed those horrible typos and grammatical errors. And, many, many thanks to my wonderful artists - Zeixx and Lady Prophet - for their gorgeous contributions to this story!

FMA Big Bang - Closer to the Edge (Complete)

Title: Closer to the Edge
Author: catystorm 
Rating: Hard R
Warnings: Off-screen major character death; future fic.
Word Count: ~39,000
Spoilers: None, Canon AU.
Characters/Pairings: Past Roy/Ed, Al/Winry

It is five years after the death of General Roy Mustang in the line of duty, and seven years after Edward has restored Alphonse to flesh. Edward, at a loss for what to do with his life now, remains in the military to try to keep Roy's dream alive of changing the country from the inside. Because of his many talents, one of Edward's new duties is running the circus that the State Alchemist examinations has become. Things rarely go smoothly for Edward. On top of rumors that there are Drachmian assassins after the acting-Fuhrer, he has to deal with the Tringhams (again!), way more paperwork than is fair, Sheska's sudden infatuation with him and the looming anniversary of Roy's death - all while keeping everything together in time to interview the State Alchemist candidates.

Author's Notes:
The origin of the Reverse'verse, so to speak. Right now, this is the longest stand-alone fic I've completed, and it clocked in at just under 40,000 words. I think I need to write a lot of Roy/Ed fic to make up for this monstrosity, haha. I probably owe it to Roy.

Anyway, thanks goes out to my lovely beta moumusu, (also known as Rian's fairy godmother), for all her help and encouragement in the writing of this behemoth. starving4scotch gets a special mention for her cheerleader status. Onwards to the next adventure!

Rating: K+
Warnings: Eventual violence, particularly of the Scar and Kimblee sort.
Continuity: AU (alternate/divergent universe) set in the first animeverse.

Summary: It’s a difficult thing, putting yourself back together again. Piece by piece. Memory by memory. It was like alchemy. The slowest transmutation he had ever performed.

Author’s Note: This is set in an alternate timeline of the first anime world. Several characters have had their timeline shifted back thirty years while others remain as they were in the canon. It's a work in-progress as yet, but 14 chapters are good to go, and I'll be posting them over the next few weeks as I work on finishing up. Many thanks go to my wonderful beta readers mintysage and Kayca as well as to my awesome artist for this project, bay115.
