I got home from camping, after a five hour slog through bank holiday traffic, to some lovely, flattering news - I got joint second place in this week's fma_fic_contest. I have a banner and everything! I like the font and the way they chose the goofy photo of HEARTBREAK AND WOE for the illo. 

As if that's not enough, along with all this week's other entrants, I also get a frighteningly cute chibi Ed banner for taking part. 


I think my entire flist is on fma_fic_contest, but just in case anyone isn't, I will do some pimping. I shared the second place spot on the podium with tiamatschild  and their lovely fic "Chestnuts", a really charming vignette in which Mei Chan harasses/looks after Scar. Aww! The winner list is here, and you should definitely check out the scary winning entry from colonel_bastard. But also! There were actually twenty-three entries, most of them ace, and all of them very short, so you could and should read them all in a single coffee break. They are here.

Ficlet: Mail Call

Title: Mail Call
Word Count: 250 exactly
Series: Mangaverse, as ever
Rating: PG for vague allusions to naughty photos
Characters: Major Mustang and Captain Hughes
Summary: "You don't want to see spicy photos of my gorgeous girlfriend?"
Notes: this was my maiden entry to fma_fic_contest , for the dialogue-only prompt, and I got joint second place! Woot! See my post below for boasting and - more importantly - pimpage of the other excellent entries for this week, which you should read. Set in Ishbal and therefore potentially contains spoilers for the Ishbal flashback jamboree in chapters 57-61 of the manga, but in practice no more specific than "Hughes and Mustang fought in Ishbal."
