Griffin Rider: Making CampTheir party made good progress that first day. Caleb had never worked closely with either of the taurian races, however he'd heard stories of their amazing stamina and much to his shame they exceeded even Bracken's steady and inexhaustible pace. The others of course rode with the wagon...except for the gnome who sometimes floated alongside it and at other times vanished all together only to reappear somewhere up ahead waiting for the group to arrive. The centaur in particular seemed to take great offense to Duulingknopf which seemed only to encourage the gnome to further acts of depravity. He even buzzed past Bracken once during the journey yelling: "DUUUUU!" as he flashed by. The poor griffin had jerked and hissed in agitation and it was all Caleb could do not to take a try with his sling at knocking the gnome from the air.Griffin Rider: Making Camp4 years ago in Short Stories More Like This

Griffin Rider: First FlightThe morning broke as it always did in this part of the world, slowly at first as the sun fought to rise above the low rolling hills and then poured down upon the sheltered depressions between them. Caleb's eyes opened slowly as he yawned mightily, stretching out his stiff joints. He lifted himself from Bracken who crooned softly as he lifted his head out from under his wing, clicking his beak and warbling a good morning.Griffin Rider: First Flight3 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
"Good morinng to ye as well." Caleb said gruffly as he turned to stroke Bracken's mane.
The griffin clicked his beak and began to preen himself, cleaning away the morning dew clinging to his feathers as Caleb brought out his feed. Bracken set about eating eagerly as Caleb checked over their gear. He didn't expect any of their companions to have taken anything but old habits died hard.
Caleb turned at Nil's voice to find the girl standing behind him smiling with her hands clasped behind her back.

“I'm standing here telling ye such aren't I?” Caleb replied gruffly.
Sheera frowned and pursed her lip in annoyance as she glanced at Nil. “I assume you saw them as well?”
Nil shifted uncomfortably under the wood elf's scrutiny. Caleb felt bad putting the girl on the spot but there was nothing for it.
“I'm not sure, I've never seen a bandit camp before, but they were heavily armed and hidden within a dell so they couldn't be seen from the High Way.”
Ikras looked towards Sheera dubiously. “It is possible, reports of banditry upon the High Way are not uncommon.”
Sheera sighed and turned, pulling up the flap for the wagon. “Ra'ma. Come.”
The nidracaal flowed out of the wagon, dropping to the ground and looking up at Sheera curiously with her shimmering yellow eyes.
Sheera glanced at Caleb. “How far down

Somewhere near the Sopron Frontier. 2009.
The cold November winds coursed through the empty cottage as Austria let his hands recreate Mozart's brilliance from the myriad piano keys. He no longer wondered when he first started this peculiar ritual, out here at the very fringes of not only the Alpine Confederation but also of civilized life in Mitteleuropa. He knew that the proud men patrolling the still irradiated borders who heard it at the very least considered it a relief from the dreary reality of their watch. And yet deep down, he knew that he was playing for an old love he hoped against hope was still out there in the wastes. Not since Doomsday, he thought bitterly as the notes grew more disjointed. That he was in what had once been Hungary's doorstep made it all the more difficult.
He could still vividly remember that day in 1983 when the world nearly ended. When at long last, Americ
A Monster's LullabyThere's something in the darkness,A Monster's Lullaby4 years ago in Songs & Lyrics More Like This
Something that is not quite right.
The shadows haunt beneath me
Swirling just out of my sight.
The darkness threatens to swallow,
Everything that I live for.
But it promises to hold me,
So I cant really ask for more.
The blackness is a cradle,
It wraps me warm inside.
Bring out all the monsters,
As they sing me lullabys.
They sing me:
"The monster in the mirror,
The demons in the night,
The place my heart cannot love,
Where I cannot see the light
For I know my heart is broken
But I fear to give up the fight."
Maybe monsters aren't so scary,
They are scared just like me.
They broke so long ago,
That they are numb like I want to be.
Maybe a monster's what I am,
In the mirror it's what I see.
My own reflection's scary,
Shaky and unsure what to be.
It would be so easy to give up,
And I fear that I just might.
So soon I'll sing your lullaby too,
And hide you deep into the night.
"The monster in the mirror,
The demons in the night
'Al Was Here' - Elricest There were many things that I liked about my brother: his determination, how he genuinely cared, the way he'd look after me when I wasn't feeling so good, and the thing we'd just done. I know that people disagree with the way we are together, but it can't be helped. We love each other in more ways than one, and it felt completely right. There was something wrong with it, but I had stopped caring.'Al Was Here' - Elricest8 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
It was times like these that I cherished the most, after our favourite taboo, when we would lie in each other's arms, watching the other fall to sleep. Nii-san looked so innocent when he slept, away from this world with its pointless troubles. He didn't have to think about anything that gave him grief, he couldn't feel any pain, and he didn't have to hide anything.
I sometimes wondered what he dreamed about when in this peaceful state. Sometimes it was obvious; his lips would contort into a smile, and my moaned name would escape them, but other times

Roy was the one who had found them.
Ed and Al, wrapped up in each other's arms, holes in each of their chests, directly over their hearts. Dried blood stained both the bed underneath the brothers' bodies, and the silver knives in their hands.
Roy wanted to scream and cry, like a child that loses a prized toy, at the sight of the now cold, lifeless bodies that had once held the lively souls of two people he cared for dearly.
Struggling to control the urge to throw up, Roy noticed a book resting in Al's pale, limp hand. Something seemed to draw him towards it, and he grabbed the book before racing outside and introducing his lunch to the bushes.
The thick book stayed on Roy's coffee table until the day of the double funeral, where Ed and Al were buried next to their beloved mother.
Roy came home that same afternoon, throwing his tie and jacket on the floor before collapsing onto the couch and pouring himself a

I turn at the sound of my name, not surprised to see what was left of the Chibi-san.
Pride's eyes never show emotion. They're just blank gold orbs inside human-based sockets. He shuffles his feet just a bit, hardly noticeable comtemplation on his erased face.
The question would have been simple if it were coming from someone else instead of this half-assed homunculus who hadn't had taken in any red stones. Hohenheim claimed his "son" didn't need them, so he used some weird voodoo to do something which resulted in the red marks on his body and his current state of mind. Ha. He just wanted to have some replica of Edward running around, with his pretty gold eyes and flowing blonde hair instead of the cat-like violet eyes and dark hair that all homunculi possessed (okay, Sloth was an exception; the Trisha Elric thing was just too good to pass up in teasing the Chibi-san).
But, the question had been asked, therefore requiring me to answer it.

He also had to make a few extra holes in his belt in order to cinch it up as far as possible to keep his pants from falling down.

Like The Way It FeelsThat woman he brought home with him. Always giving Alphons the look, the eyes. It drove Edward crazy. He couldnt believe that hed let such a girl into their home, a girl who would move in on what was most definitely his. He wanted her gone, but tried to keep his cool for as long as he could. It was alright. As soon as he could find a good excuse for her to move out, she would be out and his problems with having someone between he and his blonde German friend (who had a really nice butt, by the way) would be over. So he endured each day when hed come out and see her making breakfast and looking back at Alphons. And that boy would be looking right back, the little smile on his face dancing into a huge grin and his eyes sparkling with some kind of mischievous thoughts.Like The Way It Feels8 years ago in Horror More Like This

I have to admit- I never expected to meet anyone like Alfons Heiderich.
To come face-to-face with a virtual alter ego of my own brother was in itself shocking, but to fall in love with that very man?
It stirred up feelings in me; emotions, something I hadnt considered actually allowing myself the liberty of having since I passed through the Gate. Some were utterly intoxicating; pleasant beyond belief. But they were overwhelmed by doubt, and the other frightening feelings that were at frightening as their opposites were intoxicating. Should I have been in love with, in essence, my brother? Was it, in any way, right?
Alfons knew all along, could sense my turmoil. He came to me, told me that no matter what I thought, even if I wanted it, he wasnt Alphonse, and he never would be.
I loved him for that; his clear blue eyes showed nothing but understanding at my confusion, stoking my affecting into an even greater entity. Doubts lost their meaning as I lost myself in a love

Fullmetal Alchemist (Which will he by be known as FMA) the first animated series (2003) has not gotten me through anything in my life, or anything like that. FMA was the first, and one of the only animated series from Japan that I actually liked. This series unlike the original storyline of the manga makes the Homunculus storyline much deeper and have their hatred towards humanity more real. The relationship of Edward and Alphonse is more caring then that of the manga. The rest of the cast also seem more human, and less 1 dimensional in FMA then in the manga and even more then the -1D in the manga's poor adaptation (Brotherhood) Even the ending was more realistic and more moving then the rainbow bunny ending of the manga. Now it's not to say that I never liked the manga's storyline, in fact my username is a character's name from the story, but with the ending of the manga came my hatred for the series.

It was a bitter and frosty January morning in Risembool. The little village hardly ever got snow, but frost and freezing fogs were common and today was located in the middle of one of the longest cold snaps in over a decade. Icicles hung from the eaves of the houses and weighed down the branches of the naked deciduous trees while fields and lawns were coated in a crisp layer of white.
The outside may have been freezing, but inside was warm and none more so than the old farmhouse on the hill. A friendly fire crackled merrily in the fireplace as a small family and their friends celebrated a special event, clustered around the large oak kitchen table. There were five people in total, not including a large dog hampered with an automail front leg which lay curled up before the fire, enjoying the heat. Its not every day a boy turns ten, but today was the day that Edward Elric finally entered double figures.
