I think I’m going to end here for the night and go write something new.

Mostly because I still really enjoy these two fics. Fullmetal Alchemist ‘03 was an amazing series and I love it to this day. I named my first car “Roy Mustang” if you want to know how much I loved it. Lol.

I honestly liked it so much I haven’t read the manga or watched Brotherhood because I knew it was different (and a lot of the stuff the anime changed I liked).

Anyway, I reread both of these fics while I was crossposting and I still love them. Enjoy!

Incendiary Relations on Archive of Our Own or Fanfiction.net
Rated M
Fullmetal Alchemist (2003)
Zolf J. Kimblee/Frank Archer, Drama & Humor

Summary:
Kimblee discovers the benefits of having a drinking buddy, but what happens when it starts going farther? Kimblee x Archer

I love this fic. I had so much fun writing it and it’s one of my favorite pairings. This is Canon Divergence at its most fun and looking back at this thing I can see all my favorite shipping tropes in one place (Spoiled, violent brat in one-sided love with someone else who eventually gets dragged kicking and screaming into the relationship with a side of jealousy).

I also remember that one day I went back and just marked it complete after realizing the chapter I stopped on was...actually a good stopping spot. It felt good to mark it complete, even if there was a small amount of time I had thought about continuing it.

Still one of my favorite fics I’ve ever written & I’ve actually re-read it a few times over the years (You are allowed to like your own writing, remember that!) since there is...very little Kimblee & Archer. This fic exists because I couldn’t find it to read.


Intemperance on Archive of Our Own or Fanfiction.net
Rated M (It was T but after re-reading it, it was a little more violent in a couple places than I remembered so I bumped it up.)
Fullmetal Alchemist
Gracia Hughes/Roy Mustang, One-Sided Edward Elric/Roy Mustang, Maes Hughes & Everybody, Slow Burn, Horror

Summary:
Stuck in central thanks to Mustang, Edward finds himself working a case of human transmutation gone wrong. The side effects of that transmutation seem to be more than anyone expected, especially when it begins to target Roy Mustang.

This wasn’t a very popular fic back in the day and looking back, I feel like I could have fixed that by putting “Homunculus Hughes” in the summary (which is why I added that tag to the fic on AO3 when I crossposted it today).

Which is what this is. Homunculus Hughes comes back to steal everything the real Maes Hughes had.

I actually had a hard time tagging it. Is this “Greed Hughes” an original character or just Evil Hughes? It’s basically Evil Hughes so I just tagged it with Maes, but I still had to think about it.

Always a fan of possessive characters, I could see myself coming back to this one. There was some really good chemistry with Greed Hughes and Roy in the 5th and 6th chapters that I’d love to revisit (plus, the pairings were slow burn they never got anywhere).

Good times.

#I wrote Kimblee as such a brat in the first one. #I love it. #But for real #Frank Archer #I loved him so much you do not even know #he was my favorite character in the 03 show. #After Roy.

Holy shit. I did not expect this.

Honestly I am not a fan of Kimblee, but that second fic sounds amazing and I shall read it ASAP. The way homunculus work is my favorite thing about the 03 anime, and people rarely exploit it in fics

Also, I am overjoyed to see you are a 03 fan

Maybe its because the fma fandom seems to have a huge hateboner for the 2003 anime, but finding 03 fans is dificult and I always get SO happy when I find a new one in the wild.

*high fives* :D
You did the right thing, both works are so different its jarring tbh. I read the manga and was not a fan tbh (plus all the bh/manga fans are so rude it made me dislike that version even more)

I loved the original characters too! Dante is one of my favorite villains ever and the end of 03 had me shook when I first watched it. Amazing

If you ever would like to scream about fma, you can message me c:
