Am willing to trade drawings for fanfics!!  
Not quite sure if this is allowed, but I read the rules, and it didn't say anything against this, so.....

Hey hey people! Cause I'm running out of ideas of what to draw, and I want to read more fanfics, I am willing to bribe authors with drawings to write my plotbunnies. And can I just say that I will also explode from joy if anyone is willing adopt these bunnies of mine? Cause I will.

EDIT 5/15/08: ADDED MORE BUNNIES! I think I may do this some more if more ideas strike me.....

Okay, I'm just gonna say first that I love slash, so if any of you guys can write those into the fanfics if you should adopt them, then that'd pure awesome.

Also, I realize some of these may have been already written, but I'd still like to see new takes on them. It'd also be nice if any of you can give some links to any fanfics that already have these plots....

Lastly, I don't care if more than one person writes the same idea. I like reading how different people write out a common idea, like FMA/HP crossovers, and somehow manage to make completely their own.

- Ed uses the knowledge he attained from the Gate
- Ed does something that makes him the object of desire by almost everyone and it is up to Al to protect poor oblivious Ed from the onslaught of seducers
- Ed becomes able to perform alchemy in Germany.
- Alfons survives the day the Gate is opened by the Thule Society, and finds out that he wasn't as terribly sick as he thought he was (I dunno, challenge for the author...?) and ends up going with Ed and Al to find the uranium bomb.
- Ed is older and has grown out his hair... a lot.
- Ed goes undercover for military purposes and is forced to crossdress.
- Ed teaches Alfons Heiderich how to fight.
- Ed is mistaken for a girl by a group of Hohenheim's students in Germany.
- Ed amazes Alfons and other onlookers with his fighting/acrobatic skills.
- Ed and Al come back from the other world and both get reinstated into the military as state alchemists (Roy has gained a high position of power and makes this possible). They are later given a mission to go undercover to a school where rumors of Bad Stuff Happening (use your imagination for this!) is taking place. Either both Ed and Al pose as students, or Ed as a teacher and Al as a student. (Al should be 5-6 years younger than Ed)
- Ed teaches Roy German
- Ed teaches Alfons English
- Ed surprises his friends with his amazing domestic skills.
- Ed and Al use the knowledge they've gained from the other side in Amestris.
- Ed and Al manage to open the Gate, but instead of going back home, they end up in the manga verse. (You can write their appearance up to the latest chapter of the manga if you want, since I've already read it)
- Ed discovers that he enjoys classical music
- What the teachers and students thought of Ed and Al after their mother's death. (should obviously take place before they actually they transmute their mother)
- What Ed and Al's childhood friends and acquaintances think of them after the transmutation of their mother and/or after they start on their journey for their bodies. (in case the wording confuses you, I don't mean the people are supposed to know about the transmutation. Just their reactions to the suddenly changed Ed and Al)
- Ed meets alter!Ling.
- Ed, Al, and Heiderich (he lives!) hitchhike across America to the west coast when they discover clues of another way to get home. They get picked up by a travelling circus/freak show, and end up working with the travelling show when they find out they're both heading to the same destination. (Ed and Al should become one of the attractions, like as acrobats, or maybe display their martial arts, while Heiderich, and maybe Ed too, can make fireworks/rockets for shows.)
- Ed and Al, after getting back to their own world, find out that they've become branded as mass murderers, with Ed being blamed for the Liore Massacre, and Al being blamed for the invasion by the Thule Society in Central. Both are quite intent remaining free, so they decide to run away before the government can realize they're even back in the first place. Of course, life has never been kind to them, because soon they're wanted criminals again after several people report sightings of them. Roy, who at this time has achieved a high status in the government/military, does what he can to both protect Ed and Al, and track them down, since Ed and Al never bothered to say hi to him after they came back. In their time gone, the pair travel around the world, never staying in one place for too long in fear of being captured. Neither Ed and Al use much alchemy too, with the reason being a) it would attract more attention then what they'd be comfortable with and b) the knowledge of the energy needed to power alchemical reactions, as in souls, make using alchemy even less attractive. So, with only their brains to help them out, the two live as drifters for nearly 5 years, and occasionally become the two mysterious heroes who save the day in some lonely, rural town. Ed and Al, however, finally find their way back to Central when news of the appearance new Homunculi/Chimera/etc. emerge, and discover that they would once more need to go and protect the people they care for.

You can either go to my dA account here or browse through the posts in this community to see how I draw.

Okay, depending on the length of the fic will determine the quality and number of drawings I do for you. An example would be this.

500 words - simple sketch
1000 words - refined sketch
2000 words- shaded drawing OR a colored piece

And so on and so forth. I am, of course, willing to talk something else out if you have anything else in mind. And on the off chance the fanfic becomes really long, like 10,000+ words, then I'd be willing to draw multiple pictures for you! Like maybe a lot of sketches, or a few detailed pencil drawings or colored pieces. Again, up to you!

As to what I'd be willing to draw, I am fine with pretty much anything so long as it's not sexually explicit, so nothing rated R or NC-17.... But then again, depending on what it is exactly you want me to draw, I may make exceptions. So I'd be willing to draw slash, het, and gen. I'm also fine with drawing violence and the like.

As a note, I'm best at drawing Ed, so other characters may not get the same, aah, quality as him. Doesn't mean I won't try my best at drawing them though, so request away!

On a side-note, I was wondering why some people think that the language spoken in Amestris isn't English. As far as I've seen in the anime and manga, most of the written material is in English, especially that one scene in the anime where Ed writes a letter to Winry.

- Alfons survives the day the Gate is opened by the Thule Society, and finds out that he wasn't as terribly sick as he thought he was (I dunno, challenge for the author...?) and ends up going with Ed and Al to find the uranium bomb.
I just have to comment that this goes nicely with my headcanon (Alfons isn't dead... they faked his burial to avoid him being persecuted by the Thule society/nazis and in the end, they're going off to meet him, where he is recovering from bulletwound!!!! *nodnodnodnodnod*)

Also: I also think that the language Armestrians speak is English, though who knows about accent, and if England's not a country there, it probably goes by a different name. But same language, yes. In fact, I always found it amusing that the Japanese version was technically a dub of what was really happening....
Feriowindferiowind on May 12th, 2008 06:16 am (UTC)
Hahaha, headcanon is fun.

Yeah, that's what I've figured.
Imagination at it's finest: I has a karot!dragontrap on May 12th, 2008 05:55 am (UTC)
Actually I have a fic that was written quite some time ago that allows Ed to perform Alchemy in Germany (not exactly in the way he normally does, but it is still the same idea). You don't even have to draw anything if you don't want, but do feel free to leave a comment if you read (mind you this fic is a few years old and my writing style has grown & become more refined since then).

Feriowindferiowind on May 12th, 2008 06:23 am (UTC)
Oooh! Thanks! *goes off to read*

:D Yay! Don't worry, I'm a fairly patient person. Take your time to do what you need to do, and then we can talk more on what you'd like me to draw for the fic.
rii_namuras on May 12th, 2008 05:56 am (UTC)
(I'd like to try one of these, but I have some other [non-fanfic] projects that have been overdue for a year or so. D: D: D: )

(On the side note: Um, all the names are English. Why wouldn't it be English?)
Feriowindferiowind on May 12th, 2008 06:08 am (UTC)
That's fine! I don't wanna force people to write!

I dunno, it's just that I've read some fanfics where it's mentioned how Amestrian is a completely different language from English, which confused me, since I'm pretty sure they're the same...

Oh man, I'd be totally willing to have a go at this! Much love for some of these prompts (can't say yet which one I'll be in the mood to attempt, but there are several that have caught my eye). Plus, I'm a fanart h0r. I've been following your stuff, and while I'm too much of a coward to do any commenting, I must say I'm a big fan! You're going to have to wait for juuuust a little while, though because I'm graduating from high school in a little over a week and I still haven't finished a fic for FMA Exchange that was due like two weeks ago. XD;; As soon as that is over though, you have my full attention. O:!
Feriowindferiowind on May 12th, 2008 06:21 am (UTC)
:DDD Awesome! Just tell me whenever you're ready, and then we can talk more.
E. Spirixspirixx on May 12th, 2008 06:03 am (UTC)
Well I'm rather booked with my own fics, but you are welcome to read them. They are all a good length and an even better read. I suggest you start with 'Mail' "Flint and Ashes' or 'Free Fall'.

The only one that is similar to your plot bunnies is 'Occupation: Alphonse Elric'. It's generally about Al finding out about Ed's sex life with... well everyone through his different part time jobs. That fic is pure crack but the two I mentioned earlier are substantial.


I'm at Fanfiction dot net in case the link didn't work. My name is Spirix there. I don't expect artwork or anything, just there is a lot of different types of fics to choose from. It would keep you occupied and they are good.

Anywho, I'm off to read. If you don't like my works I can point you in the direction of some other good fics written by other ppl.

I hope you take a look at least.
Feriowindferiowind on May 12th, 2008 06:19 am (UTC)
:) Cool, thanks! I'll check them out. They definitely sound interesting!

Staunch Heliocentrist: planetesannepackrat on May 12th, 2008 06:08 am (UTC)
They speak English all right:

And frankly, there have been so many crossdressing Ed fics that finding one really shouldn't be a problem for you. (Finding a good one, however, may be another matter).

You may wish to post a link to a deviantart or something similar so people can get an idea of your work.
Feriowindferiowind on May 12th, 2008 06:12 am (UTC)
Ya, I know. I've paused several times throughout the anime just to read what's been written in English. I think the weirdest one was the document from King Bradley that gave Ed his official title of Full Metal Alchemist. If you read the sentences following the first one, it's the same words on the alchemy circle that, I think, was used for human transmutation.

Haha, yeah, I'm just hoping for some good Ed crossdressing fics, where he's actually in character!

Oh, okay. Sorry about that, I guess I just assumed people have seen my art posts here....

I want to create something beautiful ☆: oh unumi_nami on May 12th, 2008 08:13 am (UTC)
They speak English in the anime, I think. English that sometimes make no sense, because as you said, the paper giving Edward his state alchemist name contains a quote from Paracelsus (I think) that's the same as the one inscribed in the transmutation circle they used for their mom.

I think I've seen a nurse!Ed fic by girl_starfish, I'm not sure. Have you checked scimitarsmile out yet?
Feriowindferiowind on May 12th, 2008 10:46 pm (UTC)
I've read the nurse!Ed fic. I even drew a picture for it, which you can find in my dA gallery....

I've pretty much looked through most of scimitar smile already. That's where I read my first FMA fics! :D
dreamer1789: ed&al_against_moviedreamer1789 on May 12th, 2008 08:13 am (UTC)
A couple of months back I actually played with this idea: Ed becomes able to perform alchemy in Germany. However it got discarded, because it didn't have strong foundations, plus it has been done before.

When RL allows, I still might give into temptation and write a drabble. ^^ If you want to know how I write, you can go here or as ex. of fulfilled request here.
Feriowindferiowind on May 12th, 2008 11:19 pm (UTC)
Ah, that's too bad.

:) Cool! Just tell me if ever have the time!

Feriowindferiowind on May 12th, 2008 11:23 pm (UTC)
Haha, that's alright. I'd still like to read it! Just tell me how long it is when you finish, or how long you plan on making it, and then we can talk about the drawings.

Don't worry. I'm a lazy commenter too.

Ah, I'll go check that out then!
ZaKai Stonewall: Misc: dorkzakai_ on May 12th, 2008 11:38 am (UTC)
*nods* I agree with you about English being what's spoken in Amestris. It should be rather obvious since there are signs in English and the like. I have one or two fics where I've played with the language, but *chuckles* it's not good to assume that someone believes one thing to be 'cannon' or 'true' just going by what they write. ^_~ after all, I write a lot of Roy/Ed and I can tell you right now that I don't think those two would get together in a million years ^__^
Feriowindferiowind on May 12th, 2008 11:28 pm (UTC)
Ah, well, that's true. I guess I just wondered what the point would be to create a new language when the spoken language is already known.

I'm working on a fic right now (which does have some alchemy in Germany to it) but I like your bunnies so I'm putting this post in my memories---if I write something off one of these prompts I will definitely let you know. I love your work!

- Ed teaches Roy German

I'd be writing this one, since I looooove Language-crack. Unfortunately I don't know if it would come out well, since this would obviously be crack-stuff and I've never been good at writing funny stuff. I could try, though o_O *has to watch movie again*
Feriowindferiowind on May 12th, 2008 11:29 pm (UTC)

- Ed becomes able to perform alchemy in Germany.

Already have it... Kinda. 'Balance of Power'

Well, sorta. In the prologue. And in the scene, it's actually Al who performs alchemy, but it's safe to assume that Ed can too.

They're in Germany in the beginning. Beyond that... It's 21st century Middle America -- be afraid. Ed in Hot Topic. Think about it.

It's pretty long, and we're (not the royal 'We', there are actually several of us writing this) late on getting the final chapter out. But it'll be done soon.
