Presenting The fma big bang's
Posting Schedule
Part I

YAY! I know you all have been waiting for these for a verrrry long time!

Just as a note, these talented authors have been working on their fics since October alongside their helpful beta-readers, while the brilliant artists completed their pieces in only one month. Everyone’s done a spectacular job in making the Big Bang successful, and we all hope you as readers (and writers and artists) enjoy your stay in Amestris. Thank you!

Please also note that the links to both the fics and art will open on the date listed. Thanks!

Title: Notorious

Author: bob_fish 

Betas: the marvellous and very patient enemytosleep 

Artists: he03 & enemytosleep. Check out he03's Deviantart account here for more awesomeness and a delightful metric ton of Bradley love. 

Rating: PG-13
Characters: Madam Christmas aka Chris Mustang, Roy Mustang (aged four), Grumman

Warnings: gangsters, innuendo, sleaze, dominoes and a lot of jazz age slang

Summary: Twenty-five years ago ... Chris Mustang is having a very bad month. The censors killed her show, she's in debt to a couple of very dubious businessmen, and she's working as a hostess in the worst bar in town. As if that wasn't enough, her estranged big brother seems to have gotten himself in an auto accident, and some nut decided to make her guardian of his four year old brat. 

Notes: Written for the 2009-2010 FMA Big Bang Challenge.

Title: Haunted by Water

Author: cornerofmadness 

Disclaimer: not mine, all rights belong to Ms. Arakawa

Betas: evil_little_dog & bob_fish

Artist: all the wonderful illos belong to bob_fish 

Rating: overall NC-17 but mostly it’s R or less.

Genre: mystery, action

Pairings: Roy/Riza, Maes/Gracia, Roy/Maes, Roy/Maes/Riza/Gracia
Warnings: manga based, no direct spoilers except for Roy’s parentage and things that happened in Ishbal. So hmmm, spoilers for anything past chapter 50; all sorts of sex (Het, m/m, threesome), violence, off screen rape and murder of young teens, arson, Roy & Ed’s potty mouths.

Summary: crimes of today resurrect ghosts of the past. When Maes asks for Roy’s help investigating arson and murder, Roy never expected to have to face his past or that they would have to find a killer before Edward is targeted.

Author’s notes: this was very hard to finish in time. The plot was expansive. Thanks to everyone who helped me knuckle down and finish. Thanks especially to evil_little_dogbob_fish, and to enemytosleep for the encouragement.

Title: No Sound of Water
Author:enemytosleep 

Beta: the ever fabulous, bob_fish 
Artists: DarkRyan75potato_mouse 

Rating: PG-13
Characters: Ling/Ran Fan (UST), Fuu
Warnings: mild, action based violence and lots and lots of sand

Summary: As the Yao clan's only hope for the throne, Ling decides it is time for action. Along with his most trusted retainers, he sets off on a dangerous journey through the Great Desert in search of immortality. But is this all he is searching for?  When familial relations reach their breaking point, she and her grandfather, Fuu, leave with their young master on his quest for greater power. But what else will they find along the way? 

Notes: This was written for the 2009-2010 FMA Big Bang Challenge. This was the first story of this size I have ever attempted, and while it was definitely a challenge, I really enjoyed stretching my wings. I hope you enjoy it!

Title: Miss the Girl

Author: evil_little_dog 

Betas: cornerofmadness & suspicious 

Artists: dreamer1789 & Yoporock. 

Genre: Mystery/Angst

Rating: Teen edging into Adult for violence. 

Pairing/Characters: Edward/Winry UST, Al/Paninya, Al/Various Others, Riza/Roy. 

Warnings: Future!Fic, triptych piece for Miss the Journey and Nothing Gold Can Stay but it isn’t necessary for you to have read either of those ficlets to understand this story.  Violence, murder, alcohol abuse, light mentions of drug use, light mentions of multiple-partner sex.  Oh, and language, though warning you of language in an FMA fic just seems like overkill. 

Summary: After being away for many years, Edward and Alphonse return to East City to find Winry Rockbell being hunted by a sadistic murderer.  Can they find him and repair their relationship with Winry before it's too late?

Warnings: Violence. Grief/PTSD. Sexuality (including some borderline non-con). Voyeurism. Language. Angst/Darkfic. Hughesmunculus. Spoilers for the ENTIRE first anime and for some of Conqueror of Shamballa. And finally: THIS FIC MAY CONTAIN HETEROSEXUAL SEX.  <-- consider yourself warned!

Summary: A still-grieving Roy Mustang continues to be visited by a ghost made flesh – a ghost in the form of Maes Hughes! Did Roy actually succeed in bringing back his dead best friend using alchemy … or is he being haunted by a homunculus?

Title: Turn and Turn Again
Author: nyagosstar 
Beta: the ever sparkly sainnis who listens patiently when I whine about plot and gives me a good shake when I need it and adds commas and grammatical structure so everyone else can read it.
Artists: bob_fish and Taylowolf, who both did amazing jobs.  Make sure to check out not only the awesome illustrations they did for this piece, but everything else they’ve done.
Genre: Action/Drama
Rating: R for violence and language
Pairing/Characters: Roy/Ed

Summary: The Fuhrer’s plotting, Ed’s planning and Roy can’t sleep.
Notes: This is part of my Bitter Universe, though each story can be read independently and out of order—they were certainly written that way.  I think that this is the last major story to tell in this particular universe, but don’t be surprised if there are still one or two small tales left to tell
