Prompt 310 // competition// The Fire Eaters

Title -- The Fire Eaters
Author-- cornerofmadness
series -- manga
Disclaimer -- Arakawa owns all
Rating -- teen
Characters/Pairing -- Roy, Riza, Ed, Winry, Al. Implied Royai and Ed/Winry
Word Count -- 978
Warning -- silliness
Summary -- Whatever Roy can do, Ed can do better. Just ask him.
Author’s Note -- I planned on a drabble since I haven’t had time to do anything in weeks and um…yeah got out of control.


The Fire EatersCollapse )
Title: Grave Complications
Author: ladynorbert
Series: Any, although I generally skew mangaHood
Word Count: 1,360
Rating: PG
Characters: Roy Mustang, Riza Hawkeye, Maes Hughes; eventual Royai implied
Summary: “Sometimes I steal flowers from your garden on my way to the cemetery, but today you’ve caught me and have demanded to come with me to make sure the 'girl is pretty enough to warrant flower theft' and I’m trying to figure out how to break it to you that we’re on our way to a graveyard" AU
Warnings: Character death, pre-story
Notes: I take no credit for this idea whatsoever. Over on Tumblr, there's a blog called "awful AUs," and one of the awful AUs they suggested is the one outlined above in the summary (the original post is here). I couldn't help thinking it sounded like it would make a great Royai AU, and since Tumblr residents are not in the habit of talking me out of writing for FMA, I thought I'd tie it in to our current prompt. I know I've done a few fics in the past where Roy was a fireman and Riza was a police officer; this time I'm making Roy the cop, because it works for my purposes.

"State of the Comm" Updates

Hello, everyone! a_big_apple and I have been reading and replying the comments in the State of the Comm post and we appreciate the feedback we've been getting! a_big_apple also asked a few questions in one of the comments. To quickly summarize those questions:

  • Should we get back to the weekly deadlines? Some people already mentioned how the two week deadline made some people miss it.We might go back to it very soon, though if anyone else wants to chime it that's great too!

  • Should we rid some or all of the wordcount restriction?

  • Should we get rid of the contest format? A couple people mentioned some way to help each other out more, which I thought we've been doing all this time already whenever someone replies to a story.

Anyways, more replies wouldn't hurt so if you guys haven't gotten the chance yet to reply then head over to the State of the Comm thread to make some last minute feedback!

Also while I'm still here Prompt 310 is still due Thrusday May 21st!

The State Of The Comm

Hello, all!

You may or may not have seen a little bit of discussion in the comments recently about low participation in the community. As happens naturally, many members' fandom activity has shifted over time, to other platforms and new fandoms, and the changes we tried out at the 300 prompt mark have not seemed to make a significant difference in participation here. Bay115 and I have been discussing the possibility of closing down the comm, but we wanted to give you all a chance to voice your thoughts before we make that decision. Here is the place to do that! Please let us know what you think in the comments on this post.


No voting for prompt 309

Hello, everyone! Since the extension deadline has passed and no entries have been posted, there will be no voting for Prompt 307. Sorry about that!

Prompt 310 is still scheduled to due May 21st, so get started on those entries!

Other concerns
I noticed on my last post a couple people commenting on the lack of entries after the extended deadlines and I replied to them. I messaged a_big_apple concerning this. We might do another post to discuss this, but waiting for her reply first. Hopefully we'll let you know on the next course of action soon!
