Does anyone have a list of GOOD Scar-centric fics? Preferably fics that delve deeper into the character's psyche and personality?

He's one of my favorite characters, and sadly there's a real shortage of anything written about him that isn't yaoi, or making him out to be a 2-dimensional card-board cut-out. Mind you, I don't mind the yaoi, if you can suspend my disbelief, but I haven't seen anything yet that succeeded.

The -best- story I've been able to find is In Silence, by Arkady, but that's about it.

Help?

Wow, that is an amazing story!

Have you tried looking through The Ultimate Scar Online Resource Guide? The link is on fma_scar's user page. :D

Ahhh! Thank you so much! **joined, bookmarked and friended**

And yes, In Silence is one of my absolute favorite FMA fics, ever. It's just so beautifully written.

Pr0n okay?

I have absolutely no problem with pr0n, or even Yaoi...as long as Scar is IC, and it suspends my disbelief. ;)

::Points upward:: Check Anat arste's stuff. She's the Scarophobic and it's good. Eleos for a Wounded Heart is the main one I know since it has the best character in the series (Riza Hawkeye) paired with Scar.

Of course, it would also help IF THE AUTHOR WOULD FINISH THE DAMN THING!

I think she did finish it XD

No, actually Eleos for a Wounded Heart still needs a lot of editing and was a work in progress *hides*

edit: the final work will appear in LJ, it's not done yet *runs back into hiding spot*


OMG I had several fics for them! 'Eleos..' was a one-shot yes, although now I am trying something a little different with the same idea, and it was 'The Fire Behind Your Eyes' that was the multichapter- Both fics are locked while they're still being edited!

*facepalm* Sorry!

I agree, it's difficult to find really good Scar fics. Here are two I hope you like.

The first is a yaoi (anime based future fic and AU past a certain point) but I read this long before I got into yaoi myself and I found it quite beautiful. Scar is quite well realized here. I was really moved by this story...

The second is actually one of my own... I wanted to get into Scar's head after what happened to Nina... how good it is I find hard to judge for myself.

I hope you enjoy them.

I just wanted to thank you. And you have right to brag about your own Scar story. It was beautifully written and brought me to tears. It was very IC and full of depth.

Thank you so much! I'm so glad you liked it! ^_^
