  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.

    This series begins post episode 99 and follows our intrepid heroes as they tie loose ends and move forward toward their various goals. Some of the party are more used to jungle treks ... and it shows. Comedy, drama, and kissing in magical tents ensue.

  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

    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.

    Wonderful look at the Kryn Dynasty and its social ladders. Verin is a superstar.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    I wrote this as a gift for a 2012 gift exchange, and then my cat somehow managed to hit enough buttons one night that he orphaned this work. I am beyond upset and don't have hope for it to be reversed after reading the AO3 information pages and reddit. This may be the best that I can do about this.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Sharp writing with a perfectly awful (in the best way) teenaged Essek. I will be back to read and read again as a balm in trying times.

    A canon-flavored moment I desperately wish had happened. Beautiful prose and powerful emotion.

    Summary

    This isn’t brunch; it’s an intervention.

    Percival rises the moment Cassandra’s stepped over the threshold. He hurries to close the door behind her while she’s still processing the change in parameters, then pulls out her chair with a swift, beckoning motion.

    “Please, take a seat,” Percival says, his gloved hands resting lightly on the backrest, ready to arrange her at the table just so. “We’ve needed to have a discussion for quite some time, now.”

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Sharp wit, posh etiquette soaked in biting sarcasm: this is a beautiful character study of the surviving De Rolo family and the darkness that plagued them.
