Ficlet: Everyone's a Critic

Title: Holiday ficlet #2, Festivus: Everyone's a Critic
Author: bob_fish
Characters: Roy, Riza, Madam Christmas and her girls
Rating: PG? For wine consumption and the trauma of the family holiday?
Word count: 610
Setting: Fullmetal Alchemist, post-manga
Summary: Your family, they give you no respect.
Notes: Second in a series of seasonal FMA ficlets, each vaguely inspired by a different winter festival. Note #1, regular readers of mine might notice this fits into my ongoing post-manga 'verse, but it's written so that it could be read either way. Note # 2: Festivus is a pretty much made-up holiday from an episode of Seinfeld, "The Strike". Prof. Wikipedia and Dr. Youtube have all the details.
ETA! I dared cornerofmadness to write a sequel to this about Riza's hangover, and she did. It is hilarious and you should go and enjoy it here.

Fic: Keep Your Fork

Title: Keep Your Fork
Characters: Ed/Winry
Setting: mangaverse, post-Promised Day.
Word count:1053
Rating: PG-13
Warnings: Coy references to sexytimes, innuendo stretched to breaking point
Summary: In their kitchen, my parents have a mixing bowl - a wedding present to them - that's printed with the words "küssen vergeht, kochen besteht." Apparently this actually means something like "kissing fades, cooking endures," but they've always claimed it means, more entertainingly, "don't start the kissing until you've finished the cooking." Wise words.
Notes: written for fmagiftexchange for the prompt apple pie.
