Up-to-date recs lists?  
I've been out of the fandom a while and I'm looking to catch up on fic reading. Could anyone direct me to some recent fanfic recs lists, or recs lists that are still being updated with new fic? Or just plain give me recs? :)

I'm looking at the past 3 years or so. For some reason when I try googling, everything I click on seems to be back in 2007 with all the things I've already read! About that time, I was reading everything in the fandom, but since then it's just been the odd fic.

Anyway, any help would be much appreciated! My preference is for Ed-centric gen, but anything plotty is good. Thanks muchly!

quillarchives is looking promising but still heavily under contruction from what I can see. There are some more recent fics currently recced but it's not a very large selection yet.

*waves* I had no idea you're in fma fandom, long time no see. :)

I plan to make a recs master list soon as I get around to it, for now I have all my fma recs tagged here. (Mostly gen or Roy/Riza. Ed is in some of them, not all... characters should be listed in the rec headers.)

Heya! Thanks for the link - btw I've been watching SGA again recently as well... just working my way through season 4 for the first time, so I shall come back to your SGA recs when I've finished season 5. :)

I've been following FMA for ages, but I was only avidly fannish about it when I first discovered it. Um, somewhere around 2007? I did a fic and a vid back then. *checks date on fic and vid* Yep. I didn't know you were a fan. Heh.

If you want a really good read, check out EVERYTHING BeautifulFiction has written over here:


It's Roy/Ed from both POVs generally, but even if that's not your bag, the long fics have fantastic plots. Come to think of it, so do the sort ones . . .

Thank you, gonna check out the long ones first!

Bury It Forward
I stumbled across this one the other day; I don't read lots of fic, but found this one good. It says it's Ed/Roy, but there's not a lot there, so it's really all about Ed. Also, binaryalchemist has been posting one on here, and the first few chapters aren't graphic or anything at all (just starting in on the Ed/Roy now). Not to mention it's pretty good. They're both mostly drama/angst, so dunno if that's your cup of tea or not, but I'm enjoying them.

I know someone whose got like some thousand or so bookmarks, so I bet she's got some good rec's, probably even some gen. I'll ask.

...I'll just second both of these, since they're currently the only fics I'm stalking (and the only ones I've actually followed in YEARS).

*tries posting this again because her computer sucks balls*

I totally feel your pain -- I've scoured every reclist for this fandom.

I've bookmarked tons of stuff on my delicious account (it's supposed to be posted at my rec comm homology_cubed but I, uh, suck at updating >.>).

My FMA tag is here if you're interested! It's mostly Roy/Ed.

And I will also throw out my MUST READ MUST READ rec for the fandom -- rainjoyous (her writing journal is rainjoyswriting). She writes incredible Roy/Ed that just defines the pairing, no joke.

Good luck with the hunt!

Heya. Yes, there's great stuff on the recs lists, it's just finding the new ones! :D Thank you for the recs!!

Plotty Ed-centric foc would be bob_fish and evil_little_dog. :D bob_fish has a fic index at the top of her journal, and I think evil_little_dog has a fic tag.

Yep, thought ELD had the fic tag: http://evil-little-dog.livejournal.com/tag/fic

I have something of a rec list over here ... It has some older stuff and some newer stuff and it's all about Ed in his gen or Roy/Ed incarnation =)

Some new authors have already been mentioned, but, off the top of my head, the new must-reads are the famed rainjoyswriting, metisket, sarunotoki... lightgetsin also wrote awesome FMA fic - easiest to access through the above rec list, I guess, or else search through tags as it's not a fic journal.

There's been a lot of good stuff written =)

Yes, FMA is definitely one of the highest quality fandoms I remember reading in! :) Thanks for the links!!!

I don't really have a list, but I can offer you a handful of Ed gen fics? /o/

At the Very Ports We Blow (it's also on livejournal here) by cryogenia, which is *excellent* (AND GEN, haha)

Perfect After All & it sequels: The Fusing Alchemist, Price of the Past, and a side one-shot Drink to Remember, all by Jaya Mitai at FFnet → this is probably my favorite FMA fic series EVER; the fics are epic-length, the plots are awesome, and the characters are FANTASTIC. Highly recommended! (AND ALSO GEN and mostly Ed-centric!)

Above, Between, and Under by yixsh (also here on ffnet) is fantastic as well, though it's more Al-centric is gen with a hefty dose of unrequited Al/Riza...

And I'm pretty sure I have more hanging around here somewhere, but I think several people above me rec'd some of the better Ed authors I've read, so. 8D;; I hope this helps as well? /o/
Roseveare: fighty edroseveare on July 30th, 2010 08:47 pm (UTC)
Thank you! I remember some of these, particularly the Jaya Mitai, but as my laptop that I'd saved them on three years ago has gone kaputt since I posted this post, it turns out I have to hunt them down again!
