FMA Fic: "The Mirror Shatters" 1 - 11

Title: The Mirror Shatters
Author: evil_little_dog
Genre: Alternate Reality/Dystopia
Rating: Teen
Word Count: Appx. 40,750
Characters/Pairings: Edward Elric, Alphonse Elric, Yao Ling, Winry Rockbell, Olivia Armstrong, Gracia Hughes, Elicia Hughes, Chris Mustang, Roy Mustang/Riza Hawkeye, OC’s.
Warnings: Alternate reality post the capture of Gluttony, manga-verse.

Disclaimer: I promise I will put Arakawa-sensei’s toys back, just as soon as I’m done playing with them.
A.N. 1: Thanks to Yoporock and Sweetnessnarose for their beautiful art. Please be sure to tell them how you feel about their work!
A.N. 2: Thanks to cornerofmadness and ishte for the first readthroughs. Any mistakes beyond what they pointed out are mine alone. Also, thanks to enemytosleep for running fmabigbang this year, and giving me the impetus to complete this story.
A.N. 3: This story was started some time back, before the ending of the manga. You may have noticed I posted last week, as well, but through AO3. Hope you enjoy.

It had been no one’s fault, though Roy still liked to hold that blame close to his chest. He could’ve insisted the Elric brothers and their Xingese friend return to Central City, back when that homunculus had been hunting him for killing one of its kind. Instead, he had allowed those boys to stay behind, to fight while he ran. He still remembered Edward’s words, that it was their mess to clean up, and the way those three boys had waved him off with Riza, Knox and the injured girl.

It was the last time Edward Elric, his brother, Alphonse, and their friend, Yao Ling, the Xingese prince, were seen alive.

All chapters are included in the fake cut, which will take you to my LJ. Crossposted.

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!

FIC: The First Duty of A Soldier Is Obedience [Olivier/Roy - NC17]

Title: The First Duty of A Soldier Is Obedience
Author: seatbeltdrivein

Rating: NC17
Characters/Pairing: Olivier Armstrong/Roy Mustang
Word Count: 2752
Warning: Femdom, pegging, spanking, D/s, restraints, cumshot, orgasm denial, oral
Summary: There was just something gratifying about putting Mustang in his place, something that kept her coming back. [Pre-series, vaguely 'timeline? what timeline?']
Author’s Note: An extremely late springkink fic for cornerofmadness! Sorry for the lateness, but I hope you enjoy it. Written for the prompt: "Olivia/Roy - heavy bondage, spanking, pegging (one or more of these is great) – his mouth always gets him in trouble." Unbeta'd, save for a brief self-edit, so feel free to point out any embarrassing errors. ^^

She called him ‘Fullmetal’, which should’ve been a hint, but she was my grandmother, and grandmothers never did anything interesting.

(banner takes you to chapter index!)

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

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!

A/N #2: Yes, we really, really love feedback! And concrit will get our undying devotion! So please! Read and comment, or we'll send Scar after you! Thanks!
Yes, we're begging!
