hi from the newbie...and a ficlet  
Hi everybody--happy new year :) Joined the community on a whim since I love this show so far, it's a new obsession really. And since I like to dabble in fanfiction, I wrote a very, VERY short ficlet from Ed's POV. Sound fun? Well, it takes place during the second half of episode 8, which makes it psychotic. I don't know what possessed me to write it, but tell me what you think...even if you think it sucks. It's a really weird piece of work and I'm curious to see what you have to say. :3 (All rights reserved, yadda yadda...)

clang clash scrape
and the smell of dry ice and slightly thawing meat and blood
My blood, or the meat or the Nina-creature's?
and he said that I should know what it's like to kill, I should understand him--but God, I...
I don't ever want to. If understanding him is what it takes for me to be an alchemist, I can't. My eyes are fixated on his. He's laughing.
Have I been screaming?
cold sweat makes way for primal instinct and suddenly
I know I'm going to die. Mom, how do you stare death in face and accept it?
I'm screaming--I can't think
palm meets metal fist and blade appears without thinking and if i don't kill him firsthe'llkillmeKILL HIM
arm swings back as body is jerked back and i swing backwards
i don't want to die and the blade bounces off of a hard metal plate...Al...?
blood on the wall, blood on the floor and all over my slashed arm.
We are not gods. We cannot save. We're human. We're children.
I press my forehead against Al's breastplate, my tears running down the cool metal. I sob.
I don't want to die.

It's a nice piece, really captures the emotion of that episode, fear and hopelessness.

So little people write FMA..@@; (and I do nothing..can't write >P)

Wow. I loved the style. It's hard to make this type of writing work, but given the episode, it's perfect! I actully just rewatched ep 8, and this fic fits Ed's mental state SO well from that moment! *claps* Congrats! I hope you write more fics soon! Not enough FMA fics in English out there.
