Fun with Roy (not like that)  
Apparently, when it rains useless, annoying posts from tierfal, it POURS.






(Bonus:)






And now back to beating my head against a short story about a kid in one of the London Underground bomb shelters during the Blitz.

WHAT. WHAT. WHAT AM I DOING.

omg wtf, like I would want that loser to cry over me. He was probably crying because he knows I'm better than him.

Love,

Well, I hate to be short with you, Fullmetal, but there's the small matter of my miniscule flaws; my lofty standards for myself and others; my low tolerance for incompetence; and the high regard with which I am held by the nation, let alone the military. It's just a pity you can't be as large as your ego.

Love,
Colonel Mustang

P.S. When the word "burn" came into colloquial usage, it was in reference to me.

Vitamin C: Ed - WHO YOU CALLIN' SO PRETTYtierfal on December 16th, 2011 08:30 pm (UTC)
I feel like it should really work – maybe in part because Ed reminds me a bit of Mello, and Roy of Light, and those two have tons of chemistry; but also because there's a very strong current of tension in both series, to me, though perhaps only because they fight all the time. XD That said, there's something that doesn't quite fall into place when you actually put them together like that. eltea and I hypothesize vaguely that they're just too similar somehow. I tend to see Roy more like Ed's condescending older brother, the anti-Al. XD

UH, ANYWAY. As you can tell, I'm getting tons of work done here. XD

LOL! This is priceless XD Also I've read Full Metal Alchemist too, and I loved Mustang so much! X3

Hee, glad you enjoyed it. XDD

I think if someone put a gun to my head, I would have to say Roy is my favorite, but I love them ALL. :D

this sounds awesome, and I wish to read it immediately. Have you read "Blackout"?

It turned out better than I expected given that almost the entirety was written between-RP posts, but I'm not sure it'll ever end up on tintarnetz. XD

I have not! And if it's pretty similar in its premise, I really hope my professor hasn't either. XD

LOLOLOLOLOL

At some point in my early FMA fangirldom, I did ship Roy/Ed in my head because I thought it should totally work because of how similar they are and how freaking explosive it would be. And then the first ever FMA fic I wrote was psuedo-Roy/Al and I thought, 'Hm, maybe I don't ship them so much...or maybe I do but I'm trying to develop my career as a pimp before I settle down into a nice and acceptable routine.'

Or maybe I just like seeing what I can do with all these awesome characters and try not to butcher my credibility too much...
Vitamin C: Kimblee - Kimbles 'n Bitstierfal on December 18th, 2011 08:49 pm (UTC)
RIGHT????

Every time they had a scene together, I was like, "This should be really shippy; I can't figure out why it's totally not," and it just continued to be totally not. XD

………I'm totally tracking down your Roy/Al fic sometime tonight instead of writing that essay OMG I SUCK.

but I'm trying to develop my career as a pimp before I settle down into a nice and acceptable routine
"SHIP-PIMP" IS EVEN BETTER THAN "OMNISHIPPER", OMGLOL WINNNN

Credibility is for people who don't write the kind of crackfic that I do, lol; you're welcome to my share of it if you want! XD

..why are you two so fucking brilliant? (Also, damn, way to get their voices down pat.)

Also also, it is nearly impossible to get Roy/Ed right, and all the good Roy/Ed fics out there have been tainted by all the god awful ones. Because it is possible to make it work well, as long as the characters themselves aren't changed. Aka, Roy and Ed would still bicker like that- whether they were in a relationship or not. Roy would still handle himself the same, and Ed would still treat Roy with a mixture of irritation and grudging respect.

...It works more like Master/Doctor and, as you said, Light/Mello than anything else. Not quite hatesex, but definitely not the ooey gooey love buckets that fandom is so fond of. Try to turn Ed and Roy into precious little space dumplings of love, and things don't turn out too well.

I find it difficult to actually explain without tracking down one of the good fics I speak of, and it's been so long since I've been in the fandom that I think I might explode if I try to integrate myself again. Hell, just this RP is making me twitch for my FMA boxsets. Oh my god, Alex would be beside himself if I asked him to rewatch them with me. I should do it.
Vitamin C: Ed - WHO YOU CALLIN' SO PRETTYtierfal on December 27th, 2011 05:13 pm (UTC)
Aww, shucks, darlin.' :3 And I think I may be distantly related to Roykins, who will be slaughtering me as soon as he discovers that I called him that.

eltea and I keep saying that we're kind of waiting for someone to change our minds, and that a talented writer and good characterizer fairly easily could. WE WANT TO BELIEVE.

lol, Ed resents the implication that he would not be a BIG, MANLY, INTIMIDATING DUMPLING. To your point, though, I absolutely agree, and I may or may not crack in the fairly near future and end up trying my hand at that to see what happens. I've only dabbled in Mello and Light, but you know exactly how I feel about the putting-the-"fun"-in-"dysfunction" that is Master/Doctor.

I am fastidiously staying at the fringes (and by that I mean reading only what people discerningly rec and trying not to let the plot bunnies slaver all over me), given that (a) I don't have time for a for-realsies fandom these days; and (b) nobody in the universe, let alone a fandom, could get me to ship Ed/Al, which seems to be one of the biggest pairings, ergo I am scared. XD

I AM DEFINITELY NOT ABOUT TO ENCOURAGE YOU BECAUSE I AM STILL WRITHING WITH THE SHEER LOVE THAT IS THIS SERIES, NO
