Disclaimer: Fullmetal Alchemist (Hagane no Renkinjutsushi) is copyrighted by Hiromu Arakawa/Square Enix. This is a work of fanfiction for personal entertainment only. The song cited is "Love Is A Hard Game To Play" by Stevie Nicks.
Notes: This fic can be considered a prequel to Promises (R).

Notes: Written for [info]31_days, "Footsteps are mosaics of possibility"
Summary: When he was the pointman, he was walking on equal ground with the white men in the platoon. He was the one they looked to, followed, and trusted to be sharp and canny and keep their butts alive.

Title: Do Without
Author: [info]emilie_burns
Fandom: Fullmetal Alchemist
Pairing: Roy Mustang/Riza Hawkeye
Rating: PG
Wordcount: 3900
Warnings: Few song lines interjected between paragraphs here and there.
Disclaimer: Fullmetal Alchemist (Hagane no Renkinjutsushi) is copyrighted by Hiromu Arakawa/Square Enix. This is a work of fanfiction for personal entertainment only. Song is "Need You Now" by Lady Antebellum.
Notes: Set several weeks after the events in Conqueror of Shamballa.
Summary: And it was not really a triumph on his end as much as a bit of dumb luck that decided to take pity and smile on him. Nothing he'd set out to achieve had ever come to pass, and nothing he'd strove to make right had ever been fixed, not as far as he could see.

[roy/riza; pg-13] Far From Perfect Place

Title: Far From Perfect Place
Author: [info]emilie_burns
Fandom: Nexus/Fullmetal Alchemist
Pairing: Roy Mustang/Bluebird's Illusion!Riza Hawkeye ([info]hand_of_sorrow/[info]left_in_silence)
Rating: PG-13
Wordcount: 2321
Warnings: Some fairly mild descriptions of adult situations
Disclaimer: Fullmetal Alchemist (Hagane no Renkinjutsushi) is copyrighted by Hiromu Arakawa/Square Enix. This is a work of fanfiction for personal entertainment only, set in an RPG multifandom universe ([info]the_nexus_rpg). The song cited is "Should I Let You In" by Belinda Carlisle.
Notes: This pairing has been retconned and redone.
Summary: He might have been a different Roy Mustang, in so many ways, but that trait was still something that held true regardless. He brooded, kept whatever guilt he felt buried inside, and let it fester and gnaw at him, almost serving as a means of self-flagellation in a way, a punishment for whatever he perceived as failure.

[roy/riza; pg-13] The Ladder Of Success

Title: The Ladder Of Success
Author: [info]emilie_burns
Fandom: Fullmetal Alchemist
Pairing: Roy Mustang/Riza Hawkeye
Rating: PG-13
Wordcount: 2200
Warnings: The only warning I can give would be a spoiler in itself, so all I'll say is that this is not a fluffy bunny fic.
Disclaimer: Fullmetal Alchemist (Hagane no Renkinjutsushi) is copyrighted by Hiromu Arakawa/Square Enix. This is a work of fanfiction for personal entertainment only. Both cited poems were written by Emily Dickinson.
Notes: This is not inspired by any past or present developments in any form or medium of the series. If anything did inspire this, it was the poem primarily cited, "Success Is Counted Sweetest", along with the movie Jacob's Ladder, and these together provided the title. This fic is also written in first person present tense, a format I normally despise, but this fic could not be written in any other way. I don't feel this is among my best, but I'm just happy to have been able to write and finish something, after a sickeningly long dry creative spell.
Summary: The streets are filled with people, the entire city is virtually thrumming with only a fraction of what I feel. I can't be late, not today of all days. He needs me today more than ever, from here on out more than ever. I'll protect him.

[wajas; pg] Storm Surge

Title: Storm Surge
Author: [info]emilie_burns (#65111)
Theme: 1- map, 2- island. (Written for the July 2009 Fiction contest on Wajas.com)
Fandom: Wajas
Rating: PG
Wordcount: 5501
Warnings: None
Disclaimer: Wajas are created by Estuko. All Wajas featured are my own, and the customs are my own designs, save for the Fullmetal Alchemist and Guard Dog banes.
Teaser: The sides of the truss bridge offered a small amount of security from the gusting high winds, something to catch them if they were pushed to the side. The wet wood gave precious little traction, and the ties were too narrow to hold Lucion's paws and still offer him a place to dig in his talons. Every few feet he paused and looked over his shoulder to check the pack behind him. It was slow going, even with their powerful tails to help them balance, and by the time they were only halfway across, the highest waves whipped up by the wind and from the current splashing against the supports were hitting Lucion's paws.

[gambit x nightcrawler; nc-17] Hot Summer Night

Title: Hot Summer Night
Author: [info]emilie_burns
Fandom: Marvel
Pairing: Remy LeBeau (Gambit) x Kurt Wagner (Nightcrawler)
Rating: NC-17
Wordcount: 4506
Warnings: None.
Disclaimer: Gambit, Nightcrawler, and all other known characters herein are the intellectual property of Marvel, Inc., and used without permission for personal entertainment only.
Notes: I don't believe in seme/uke stereotypes. I also haven't touched anything Marvel in nigh on eight years, so my canon points of reference are from the '90s era. Kurt is not fuzzy. I'm also not touching Gambit's accent. A smattering of French, but otherwise written without need of a phonetic translator and he does not speak of himself in the third person every damn sentence. (wtfmarvellol) I thought I'd never go back to writing Marvel, and don't expect this to be a revival here. It's a giftfic for Eden (Wajas #514). ♥ I hope you enjoy it, dear. ^_^ And thank you for the divine and for helping give motivation to break a long, dry, writingless spell.
Summary: Kurt tensed against him in surprise as Gambit closed the distance in a blink, capturing the other man's face in his hands, and his lips with his own. The return was hesitant, uncertain, as if he was still making up his mind what he thought of the experience.

[xellos x filia, val x filia, pg-13] The Summons

Title: The Summons
Author: [info]emilie_burns
Fandom: The Slayers
Pairing: Xellos/Filia and Val/Filia
Rating: PG-13
Wordcount: 25000
Warnings: Mild adult situation, some language.
Disclaimer: The Slayers are owned by Hajime Kanzaka; Rui Araizumi; Kadokawa Shoten; TV TOKYO; SOFTX; Marubeni. See the first chapter for full disclaimers.
Notes: Don't know where this bunny came from but I love it. Xellos, Filia, and Val have survived into modern day Earth. It's both Xellos/Filia and Val/Filia, with lots of Casablanca references.
Summary: "We're the only ones who remember how it was, the old days, when the science of magic, not science alone, ruled the earth. We remember Dark Star, and Lina Inverse, and everything else."

Title: Trip to a Dream, Dragon
Author: [info]emilie_burns
Fandom: The Slayers
Pairing: Xellos/Filia
Rating: R
Wordcount: 18550
Warnings: Graphic violence.
Disclaimer: The Slayers are owned by Hajime Kanzaka; Rui Araizumi; Kadokawa Shoten; TV TOKYO; SOFTX; Marubeni. All songs are by Pink Floyd.
Notes: Set approximately a century after TRY. My muse hit me over the head with this little story with a Warner Bros. grand piano after I re-read a favorite old 'fic in another fandom, "The Last Temptation of Meggan Braddock" by Indigo. Her story provoked the initial 'What-If?' thought that all muses go rabid over, and just ran with it... in an entirely different direction.
Summary: Worried? No, Xellos told himself, he wasn't worried at all. He was Mazoku. He didn't worry over something so trivial. But what the hell was going on? Where was she? It was just so unlike the Filia he knew that he doubted this was her handiwork.

Notes: Written for [info]yuuo for Christmas, 2002. And why yes, I am evil, thank you for noticing.
Summary: She knew why she risked the entire world and everyone on it when faced with Phibrizo. A world that existed without Gourry wasn't a world where she wanted to live.

[xellos x filia; nc-17] Insensitive

Title: Insensitive
Author: [info]emilie_burns
Fandom: The Slayers

Rating: NC-17
Wordcount: 5367
Warnings: Bondage, smut
Disclaimer: The Slayers are owned by Hajime Kanzaka; Rui Araizumi; Kadokawa Shoten; TV TOKYO; SOFTX; Marubeni. "Insensitive" is by Jann Arden.
Notes: So I was watching "Bed of Roses" one day long ago and it featured the song in question, and a plotbunny pounced it. I really do love the Xellos/Filia pairing, but I'll be damned if he's not fun to write as a thoroughly evil bastard once in a while too. Also, the scenes aren't completely set up in a chronological timeline, but it should be relatively easy to pick up where you're at.
Summary: They sat in front of the fireplace together, quietly drinking tea while she talked animatedly about the events which transpired since his last sojourn. Xellos listened with polite interest, and while she was in the middle of talking, he simply relieved her of her teacup and silenced her with a demanding, but tender, kiss, his hand cupping the back of her neck, holding her to him.

Title: Out of Your Shoes Tonight
Author: [info]emilie_burns
Fandom: The Slayers
Pairing: Lina/Zelgaids, one-sided Amelia/Zelgadis
Rating: PG
Wordcount: 2305
Warnings: None
Disclaimer: The Slayers are owned by Hajime Kanzaka; Rui Araizumi; Kadokawa Shoten; TV TOKYO; SOFTX; Marubeni. "Out Of Your Shoes Tonight" is by Lorrie Morgan.
Notes: This fic is Lina/Zelgaids, from Amelia's point of view. I'm not a fan of the L/Z pairing, despite liking it briefly during the first half of the first season before I got to see NEXT. I love Lorrie Morgan's stuff, and this song bunnied me too hard to ignore. No, I don't know where Gourry is in this. It was just a limited little oneshot plotbunny that demanded to be written, so be it. Basically, I was getting sick and tired of all the L/Z 'shippers bashing Amelia.
Summary: "Still, I would hate to be any man who winds up with her. A man should be able to dine in peace without fear of life and limb."

Disclaimer: The Slayers are owned by Hajime Kanzaka; Rui Araizumi; Kadokawa Shoten; TV TOKYO; SOFTX; Marubeni. "Who's Crying Now" is by Journey.
Notes: I think this is the first one-shot and first Xellos/Filia fic I ever wrote, if memory serves. Surprisingly, I still like it even a few years later.
Summary: That's when he noticed Lina was looking at him. Not just merely looking at him, but looking at him with an expression she reserved for people who she perceived to be acting on a Fireball-worthy level of stupid.

Warnings: None
Disclaimer: The Slayers are owned by Hajime Kanzaka; Rui Araizumi; Kadokawa Shoten; TV TOKYO; SOFTX; Marubeni. "If You See Him/If You See Her" is by Brooks & Dunn and Reba McEntire.
Notes: This started writing itself in my head after I got to see the music video to the song in question again, and then was reading the Slayers manga.
Summary: Don't get me wrong, I love money as much as the next young, beautiful sorceress (which automatically rules out Naga from the running) but I'm too independent. I can deal with maids and housekeepers underfoot for only so long before I'm ready to scream. How Amelia does it, I'll never know.

[dynast x dolphin; pg-13] The Devil and the Deep Dark Ocean

Title: The Devil and the Deep Dark Ocean
Author: [info]emilie_burns
Fandom: The Slayers
Pairing: Dynast/Dolphin
Rating: PG-13
Wordcount: 3650
Warnings: Should I warn for weirdly gentle/violent Mazoku fluff? Or a songfic?
Disclaimer: The Slayers are owned by Hajime Kanzaka; Rui Araizumi; Kadokawa Shoten; TV TOKYO; SOFTX; Marubeni. "Devil and the Deep Dark Ocean" is owned by Nightwish.
Notes: So I'm a Dynast/Dolphin 'shipper. I don't know why, but I just like this pairing. But remember, these are still Mazoku, don't go in here expecting fluff. Life can be and generally is chaotic, and Dolphin's domain is one full of life. That, coupled with the fanon idea of her insanity (which I'm quite fond of actually), has her more capable of feeling a broader range of emotion than the standard Mazoku. I originally planned to make this into a lemon, but when I actually set about writing it, it wouldn't happen. Part of it is, I started wondering how it might happen between two Mazoku Lords, and couldn't get the notion of Q sex out of my head, which is rather boring, all things considered (Trekkie fans might know what I'm talking about).
Summary: He wondered then if perhaps her insanity was a hell of her own making, her own downfall for emotion. She was a Charybdis, drawing him down into a powerful maelstrom, corrupting him.

Notes: Written shortly after Cable #68 was released, set after he somehow got back from wherever he is. This whole little tale is one half of a conversation between Cable and Irene; Nathan's half. Everything except the final paragraph is spoken word. The part in ~these~ are his thoughts.
Summary: So many prophecies have been written about that great, last, final hour. Some agree, some conflict, all of them describe chaos on a scale that this world has never known. I wonder if there's any truth to be found in any of them.

Notes: Third Place Winner of X-Day 2000, FanFic Category. The one and only Pete Wisdom fic I've ever written, and likely ever will. The song got stuck in my head and a bunny latched onto it and bit me, and it had to happen.
Summary: "Why couldn't you stop me from leaving? I thought you cared. Where did we go wrong? I thought we were happy. Fuck it all. For once, I was happy."

Pairing: Edward Elric / Roy Mustang
Rating: NC-17
Wordcount: 3909
Warnings: Smut. Slash. Light bondage. Turning slash conventions and staples on its ear. If you prefer seme/uke stereotypes, this isn't for you.
Written For: [info]fma_fuh_q, Ed Month (Oct '07)
Disclaimer: Fullmetal Alchemist (Hagane no Renkinjutsushi) is copyrighted by Hiromu Arakawa/Square Enix. Personal entertainment only, no profit, yadda yadda.
Notes: Yes, I've written this pairing. No, I still don't like it. I claimed it for the challenge of trying to write hot smut for a pairing I don't like and make it good. While I knew that Roy and Ed could be written into a pairing situation and still kept in character, since there are a few fics out there that manage to pull it off, I was really at a loss for a setting. Although this stands alone very well, I borrowed off a larger plot that I've poked at in fics with friends that feature a polyamorous relationship between Ed, Riza, and Roy. There are a few mentions of het in this, although Riza makes no appearance -- she's not even in the same part of the country as the boys. I also like to write slash that goes against the usual conventions and bucks the stereotypes.
Summary: Edward didn't explode at the jab to his height in a manner Mustang predicted, judging by the stunned flash in wide, dark eyes as Ed grabbed him by his shirtfront and hooked an ankle around his knees, sending him to the floor before Mustang could react.

Fandom: Fullmetal Alchemist
Title: Brothers in Arms
Author: [info]emilie_burns
Written for: Transmute_Fluff, for rhyssafireheart
Rating: R
Word Count: 6620
Disclaimer: Fullmetal Alchemist (Hagane no Renkinjutsushi) is copyrighted by Hiromu Arakawa/Square Enix. This is a work of fanfiction for personal entertainment only. The general orders are from the United States Army, along with most of the information about boot camp and OCS.
Warnings: There are drill instructors in this fic, and boot camp in general, so there's some crude language and terminology which would actually be pretty much standard norm and I think my fic's likely cleaner than the reality. No spoilers or anything else to worry about it. Due to the nature of the fic, there are some OCs - other soldiers and the drill instructors.
Author's notes: I tried my best to be as close to accurate as possible in regard to enlistment, boot camp, and OCS, and I know I've likely messed up some technical details. In that case, since it's not the United States we're talking about here but Amestris, just tell yourself that it's just the differences of administration, as well as the time and era. Since it can be difficult to get into military academies, and a lot of officers in the United States military get their training in Officer Candidate School instead, I figured it might have been more likely for Havoc and Breda to have gone a route like that in Amestris. Much of the terminology and details comes from About.Com US Military, and part of the inspiration as well as getting a general basic feel for the environment comes from two Vietnam era novels by Leonard B. Scott - The Hill and The Expendables. The AMAT, though the concept is based on the ASVAB, is completely fictional and stands for Amestris Military Aptitude Test. I apologize if it feels like I glossed over stuff -- at times I lacked sufficient confidence at being able to portray what I'd need to, and ergo, glossing. ^_^;; Some of the details for Havoc and Breda might not match up quite right timeline-wise with canon, at least not manga canon, but anime's open to interpretation at least. Hope it's still a good read though, despite me never having tackled a basic training environment in a story before. ♥
Summary: Jean Havoc enlisted in the military, and didn't have aspirations above and beyond that. But his squad buddy had his own sights aimed higher, and Breda succeeds in getting Havoc to try for OCS.

Disclaimer: Fullmetal Alchemist (Hagane no Renkinjutsushi) is copyrighted by Hiromu Arakawa/Square Enix. This is a work of fanfiction for personal entertainment only. Quotations are lines from Meat Loaf's "It's All Coming Back to Me Now" (feat. Marion Raven; Bat Out of Hell III : The Monster is Loose album). The 'point of passion' quote is by Julie de Lespinasse.
Notes: This is the third and final story in a longer arc. Spoilers for the full series and the movie. Begins immediately after the movie's end on the Amestris side of things. And if I could've found an MP3 of Bill Medley's "Most of All You", then Meat Loaf might'a had competition for this one.
Summary: "One chess piece is the same as any other, if you know which piece it should be, and which color it is. I dare say an alchemist could turn a pawn into a king if they so desired."
