Notorious - Chapter 1 - bob_fish - Fullmetal Alchemist [Archive of Our Own]
Twenty-five years ago ... Chris Mustang is having a very bad month. The censors killed her show, she's in debt to a couple of very dubious businessmen, and she's working as a hostess in the worst bar in town. As if that wasn't enough, her estranged big brother seems to have gotten himself in an auto accident, and some nut decided to make her guardian of his four year old brat.

|| This fic is so absolutely rewarding. I got completely swept up in Chris, in her revelations and her faults, her worries and plans, and the slow-building trust she finds with Grumman and the love for baby Roy. Fantastic, fantastic fantastic.

Sappily Ever After - Tierfal - Fullmetal Alchemist [Archive of Our Own]
Ed and Roy are going to get married. At least theoretically speaking…

|| So, this is ridiculously sappy--and normally marriage fic is not my thing, but it's so very cute.

Okay, the last thing I expected to do last night was spend the whole night reading Naruto and CLAMP fic. But, uh, that's what happened, thank you pinboard network! Skinner is a delightful author: serious and sexy by turns, alongside an ability to write a number of different voices. The characters I read--especially in the early work--are not QUITE canonical, but she's especially good at Naruto and Watanuki's loud pigheaded-ness.

Especially recced:
*Fifteen Mokona on a Dead Man's Chest, for worldbuilding, romp-y-ness, sexiness, banter, and a variety of characters.

*The Butterfly Effect, for adorable. Itachi sticks around, and finds Sasuke a friend. So weak to kids, y'all. So weak.

Most of these are WIPs, forewarning, which hurts my soul. But the author's main page on AO3 and LJ is really damn organized. I get the feeling Skinner updates when things are done, but is consistently working.

Prognosticate - lightgetsin - Fullmetal Alchemist [Archive of Our Own]
"Divination alchemy," Ed said scornfully. "Also known as complete and total bullshit."

|| If I have not saved this before, I am saving it now. If I have saved it before, I DO NOT CARE. I read this all over again, even knowing how it was going to tear my heart out, and it did, it did. Oh, lightgetsin, why are you able to do that? The ending section of this is one of the more brilliant meditations on foreknowledge and love ALL WHILE BEING COMPLETELY IN CHARACTER AND PERFECT that I can even fucking imagine. a;doiuaodjl

Cause for Concern
"Havoc had been looking forward to meeting the Elric brothers, but he’d been looking forward to it while thinking he’d have the whole office as a buffer. He hadn’t thought he’d have them all to himself in a car for half an hour in traffic." Oh. My god. Oh my god. The brother-banter in this is perfect, Havoc is hilarious, and the tone shift at the end makes a funny character story into a piece that CAPTURES and EMBODIES the FMA relationships in a way that can't be expressed except by itself. !! :) So much love.

You and Your Fuck Awful Timing, or Five Things Ed Learned from Roy but Would Never Admit to If You Asked Him Point Blank
Glee! I haven't read a good FMA fic in, about, forever, and this is just what I've been waiting for. Roy is a bit softer 'round the edges than he should be, but Ed is perfect, and I absolutely love "Patience." The fic has the serious themes but lighthearted craziness of the manga, which so many people can't manage.

Situation Normal
"Lately people had been acting weird everywhere he went [...] It wasn't like he was universally loved or anything, but at least he'd been able to hold an actual conversation with a girl six months ago. Even the guys his age were acting funny, either spoiling for a fight or stammering almost as badly as the girls. It was enough to make anyone paranoid, and he meant to corner Hughes as soon as possible and find out what weird rumors were circulating about him this time." Everyone is oblivious, but then somehow it all gets straightened out. For the better, although Alfphonse may threaten Roy's life once or twice.

"And if that didn't work, there was always a pair of heads to be knocked together. It wasn't like he minded. He was getting stronger every day." Roy and Ed take their own sweet time.

'"Didn't that hurt?" he heard himself ask, the needling banter that passed for conversation with them completely deserting him.' Shit. This is hot like whoa.

With Hinged Knees and Steady Hands
"In which Roy could have died and Ed was very angry with him." Ahhh. Ah. Ah. Softly, with Go Fish, hospitals, and Ed's swearing.

Um, hot, yes--although, admittedly, all in my imagination. Oooh, weak spot for this pair.

Do I not have this tagged yet? I think this was the fic that made me love Roy/Ed for the first time; very nice.

Not A Story About Swimming
A story about the canon pairing of FMA (come on, you know it's true), from one of our best authors. Can't say how excited I was to see she'd written an FMA piece. Sweet like damn.

Padam Padam
"Padam, padam, padam," he murmured with the beat, and behind his eyes was so much more than Alfons knew how to read.

Roy/Ed theme drabbles accumulated
50, though, so there's plenty here, and all in one universe, post-anime. Really, really lovely--and believable for both characters (largely), which is in itself an accomplishment.

"Roy, that bastard, she thought, as practise." Roy gets married. His wifely narrates; it's pretty great.

Five Things Everyone Wanted to Say to Maes Hughes, but Never Did
It catches what isn't sad about Hughes; these things, unsurprisingly, become like your own personal laceration machine.

"All of a sudden you’re spinning shaking drowning and there’s nothing you can do but think, God help me. God help me." Beautiful. Out of character for the series, but fantastic artistry.

And Roy is aware that he and Ed do not know what they feel about each other, or how to feel about each other. Not really.
