FMA -- Reconcile the Dark, Part 2

Sep. 4th, 2017 | 08:32 pm
posted by: tierfal in tierfallen

Title: Reconcile the Dark
Fandom: Fullmetal Alchemist(/Doctor Who)
Pairing/Characters: Roy/Ed
Rating: PG-13
Word Count: eventually 20,000+ (5,100 in this bit)
Warnings: language; some dark themes and violence (canon levels); fandomsmash
Prompt: Time Travel ~and~ Fandom Swap AU for Roy/Ed Week
Summary: Nothing puts a lifespan into perspective quite like the prospect of eternity. Sometimes, some days, the universe is kind. And sometimes its curators are very, very hot.
Author's Note: Sorry this took so long! :[ I was bouncing around between projects like an idiot I always do, and I didn't want to get too far ahead of myself. Which unfortunately is why I can't promise any kind of update schedule, but there will be more when I get my shit together! ^^;;


It was good. That was the terrifying part.Collapse )

Title: Milestones
Fandom: Fullmetal Alchemist
Pairing/Characters: Roy/Ed, with Al and Russell
Rating: PG-13
Word Count: 3,900
Warnings: some language; post-CoS AU; fluff in the extreme
Summary: Sometimes, stupid things simply must be done, even when they jeopardize very good cake.
Author's Note: This fic came about because I was thinking about how I was probably going to miss someone's birthday, and then half of it jumped into my brain. Then I finished it in July, and then I completely forgot that it existed for almost two full months. moreeeeeCollapse )

The sticky thing about traditions was that the moment you neglected to feed them, they started to starve and die.Collapse )

FMA -- Reconcile the Dark, Part 1

Title: Reconcile the Dark
Fandom: Fullmetal Alchemist(/Doctor Who)
Pairing/Characters: Roy/Ed
Rating: PG-13
Word Count: eventually 20,000+ (2,200 in this bit)
Warnings: language; some dark themes and violence (canon levels); fandomsmash
Prompt: Time Travel ~and~ Fandom Swap AU for Roy/Ed Week
Summary: Nothing puts a lifespan into perspective quite like the prospect of eternity. Sometimes, some days, the universe is kind. And sometimes its curators are very, very hot.
Author's Note: There's more of this, but it's still writing itself into new and exciting corners. XD I'm at a con next weekend (hi!), but I might get a chance to throw another piece at you guys next Monday, and I'll see what I can do from there. XD …aaaaaand I ran out of time to post even more than I expected to, so if you spot any egregious typos, incomplete sentences, etc., please let me know so I can fix them later! ^^;

If you're not a Doctor Who aficionado, I tried to make it pretty accessible! All you really need to know is that anything that seems super cool and creative, I probably did not make up. :'D  If you are a Doctor Who fan, I stopped watching after Series 5, so I'm afraid it likely won't be compliant with anything after that, though I tried to do my homework when writing this stupid thing left me time. XD The title is borrowed from the song in an amazing fanvid from Back In The Day which also doubles as a great trailer for RTD-era Doctor Who!


There are probably several more remarkably inconvenient occasions to recognize that one is in love than while surfacing from the breathless embrace of a frigid river, but Roy is distracted enough by the task of not-drowning that he can’t think of one.Collapse )

FMA -- Blackmail, Coercion, and Slander of a Superior Officer Who Has Done Absolutely Nothing Wrong

posted by: tierfal in tierfallen

Title: Blackmail, Coercion, and Slander of a Superior Officer Who Has Done Absolutely Nothing Wrong, Honest
Fandom: Fullmetal Alchemist
Pairing/Characters: proto-Roy/Ed (heavily featuring my wife, Riza Hawkeye)
Rating: PG
Word Count: 1,500
Warnings: a touch of PG-13 language (SCANDALOUS); set in an unspecified post-BH 'verse
Prompt: "You embarrassed me this evening" for Roy/Ed Week
Summary: Riza takes such immense joy in ruining Roy's life that he can't even bring himself to begrudge her.
Author's Note: Welcome to the one, single, solitary thing I finished early for Roy/Ed week! X'DDD Hurling some gratitude at Mthatyr for their help hashing out the title. ♥

Roy walks Riza up to her apartment—not because she needs it, or wants it, or because he thinks there’s even a remote possibility that he’d be able to offer her some kind of protection that she couldn’t offer herself; but because he likes to.Collapse )

FMA -- Loud and Clear: The Path to the Precipice, Chapter 5

Aug. 19th, 2017 | 07:06 pm
posted by: tierfal in tierfallen

Title: Loud and Clear: The Path to the Precipice
Fandom: Fullmetal Alchemist
Pairing: Roy/Ed (with Al/Win)
Rating: R
Word Count: 56,700 (10,600 in this chapter)
Warnings: notes from the last fic still apply :(
Summary: This isn't the first time Ed's seen the far side of a parabola, and it won't be the last.
Author's Note: First: You guys… are beyond description. I have the most amazing readers on the entire planet – you guys are funny and sweet and insightful and just so generous, with your time and your words alike, and I cannot begin to thank you enough. I always mean to answer comments, because every single one of them matters to me – I really do live in hope that one of these days I'll have the energy to start doing that again, but for now I save my reserves for bringing out new stuff. I hope that's okay. ♥ Thank you guys so much for being here, for always being here – everyone who comments; everyone who kudos's; everyone who visits and reads and participates in this thing. You guys are the reason for it. You guys are what make it important and meaningful and fun. ♥ [etc]

Second: I am afraid I am indeed going to put the brakes on this bad boy again for a little while until Part VI is in slightly better shape, and Part VII is not a terrible mess. X'D But it's only a hiatus! Loud and Clear will be back, and we'll finish up all of the rest of this shit. And I have a TON of other content in the meantime, so keep an eye on your Tumblr feeds and/or inboxes. :'|

Third: I'll be at Crunchyroll Expo next weekend! I'll be Ed one of the days and Yurio from Yuri on Ice the other – haven't nailed down which day is which yet, so keep an eye on my Instagram for updates if you want to find out!

Fourth: Roy/Ed Week starts tomorrow! Holy shit. Come party and/or come appreciate a flood of OTP content from tons of talented people!


RECAP: Present-day!Ed is still in Edinburgh, about to start his last day of science-y lectures, having just talked some of the Roy situation out with Gracia. Past-tense!Ed and Roy finally kissed and made up, so things are sort of getting back to normal… OR ARE THEY??


The first mangled thought in his tortured head on Monday morning is that he should have smuggled some NyQuil onto the plane on the trip over.Collapse )

Summary: This isn't the first time Ed's seen the far side of a parabola, and it won't be the last.
Author's Note: For those that missed my edit to the Tumblr post or the chapter tally on AO3 (which… I mean, tiny after-the-fact stuff, so probably all of you! XD), I epic-failed at this fic again and didn't realize that it has 5 chapters in total instead of 4. So… see y'all next weekend after all. :'D I may try to post this sucker on Saturday, because Roy/Ed Week starts Sunday! \o/

Also: Huge, huge, messy bear-hug shout-out to Emma, who has been liveblogging her reading of several parts of this fic to me over IM, which has been an unremitting delight. :D ♥

Also-also: There is pr0nz in this chapter (*not-so-subtle wink to those of you who were hoping for it* XD), and a bit of setup for the next part follows it, but you can skip the scene itself if that's not your twelfth cup of coffee tea!


RECAP: Present-day!Ed is in Edinburgh, Scotland, finishing up his trip; Gracia asked him to call her to talk about the Roy situation. Past-tense!Ed and Roy just made up and are retrieving Ed's things from Al's and Winry's place, and everything feels a little bit unsettled.


It’s seven forty local time.Collapse )

Author's Note: why you gotta do me like this, post limits

If his brain was a well-oiled analytical machine, his heart was a twisted, rusting, heat-swelled jalopy hanging too-high and too-heavy behind his sternum, constantly threatening his throat.Collapse )

Author's Note: HERE WE GO, GUYS! Please forgive me for the romanticized, hopelessly nostalgic travelogue shit I've got going on here. :'D  And I hope those of you in the UK in particular will forgive me for the things I've forgotten, the things that have changed, and the things that I was too lazy to research in enough detail to make up for the first two. XD recap!Collapse )


He has a seminar thing scheduled for tomorrow morning down at the university.Collapse )

One might think he’d reserve Sunday for discovering the cultural nuances of the English pub scene—that is, if one didn’t know him at all.Collapse )
