pretty much the nostalgia chick

and then Ed and Al didn't live happily ever after

So mikkeneko writes In Living Memory. ILM is a story that takes place six years after the anime, in which Edward has been thrown in prison for crimes he didn't commit. It's hard to pimp this story without giving away everything interesting about the fic, but suffice to say it's a GREAT read. It's like reading a mystery: the explanation isn't fully given away until the end. =D

And then, there was prisonfic.

mikkeneko and I got into a long discussion about ILM and basically, she bunnied me. So I wrote a prequel: the story of Ed's six long years in jail. It's not really the brothers Elric, though, so just a quick link. (The side story Responsibility (post-prisonfic) is brothers Elric, though. ^^;; )

The cool part of this is that it inspired the fantastic authors cryogenia and kaltia to also write fic! Both are writing portions of a sequel to In Living Memory.

A History of Violence by cryogenia is a fantastic look into Ed's psyche after prison. This story literally picks up where In Living Memory left off, and cryo has a natural touch with this sort of quiet angst. I just can't wait to see where she takes it. Be warned: swearing occurs. Ed is just always foul-mouthed. Also, unfinished.

  • A History, part 1 - Ed's first bath in six years
  • A History, part 2 - Ed and Al start for Central
  • A History, part 3 - Ed gets re-arrested.

    She also has side stories:
  • Interlude: Stille Nacht - Ed muses about Al and what he's gained and lost.
  • To Call Me Mellow - technically an AU, since prisonfic is gen: Ed wakes up with morning wood. NC-17 warning. ^^;;

    And last but not least, ( Prison!fic: untitled, by Kaltia ) - kaltia really needs no acclaim: she's a well-known elricest writer. One could consider this little story to have hints, if you squint, but it's generally gen. It's just a few very painful, tender moments between Ed and Al - Ed is still awkward and uncertain, but he's trying. It's heartbreaking. ;____;

    OKAY. so. go forth and read!
