  1. Summary

    Wrong Turn 'verse grew out of my kinkmeme action/comedy/UST-fest fic, Wrong Turn. I wrote a post-manga sequel to it, No Small Injury. NSI was plotted out in 2009, around the release of Chapter 98 of the manga. Some aspects of its post-manga plot inevitably got jossed. After finishing NSI, I worked out exactly where my 'verse diverged from canon events, and hammered Wrong Turn 'verse into a logical canon divergence 'verse. Much can be summed up as: "What if Olivia Armstrong hadn't survived the Promised Day?" Some of the ending AU is explored in stories, particularly the chapterfics and Curtain Call.

  2. Summary

    No Sound of Water is a pre-series story I wrote in 2009 focusing on Ling and his two guardsmen as they cross the desert to Amestris (as well as the events that drove them to such a dangerous journey). In time this collection came to house all of my Xing world-building fic; while some stories are connected, not all of them are. The one thing they do all share is the magic of Xing.

  4. Summary

    This series takes place between Chapters 83 and 84 of the Fullmetal Alchemist manga, the few months that Greedling, Ed, Darius and Heinkel spend on the lam, in the winter before the Promised Day. Awkward teenage fumbling, bickering, poorly-constructed tents, and occasional displays of competent teamwork ensue.

    Summary

    A joy that’s like the easiest kind of laughter bubbles through his chest as Shiro’s bike reaches its zenith and begins its descent. He plummets and sweeps through the canyon, hoverbike madly whirling over the land until he brings it to a perfect stop. The sun is sinking quietly below the horizon, red sky over deepest red earth. The view is beautiful. Shiro is still smiling when Keith joins him, a little later on. “Kei---”

    “How’d you--that was---Shiro!” Keith is breathless and a little awed as he dismounts. He crosses the distance between them, close enough that Shiro can see, even in the dwindling daylight, that the high color isn’t gone from his face. He asks, finally within arm’s reach, voice full of wonder and almost reverence, about the jump. Listens---that calculating, careful perception flitting again over his face---as Shiro explains the physics of the maneuver.

    *

    Keith becomes part of Shiro’s life prior to the Kerberos mission. Shiro continues to be a part of his, even after Keith is told of the Kerberos’ failure.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    I keep coming back to read this canonverse, pre-series story centered around younger Shiro and his struggles: to attain the recognition he thought would satisfy him, to rise above his physical limits, and to parse his feelings for Keith. It's so good, and it fits so well into the series canon.

    Summary

    There are certain things that an Umavi's son should not do, if he wishes to avoid his mother's rage and the disgust of his Den.

    Dancing with a human is most certainly among them.
