The following little illo was done for nyagosstar's FMA Big Bang fic, Turn and Turn Again. You should totally go and read it now: set in nyagosstar's Bitter 'verse, of which I'm a real fan, it features awesome plotty intrigue, Ed being big-hearted and brilliant with alchemy (just how we like him), Roy being ambitious, coup-plotting and sexily disshevelled (just how we like him) and a seriously hissable villain. And please check out fma_big_bang, where fantastic longfics are going up every weekday this month.

Title: illustration for nyagosstar's Turn and Turn Again

Artist: bob_fish
Rating: G
Characters: Roy/Ed, although they're not doing anything ruder here than edge into each other's personal bubble
Warnings: none
Note: all hail the drawing tablet, it makes my life easy. Went for a kind of film noir low-key lighting thing with this one.

Heehee, I love Roy's little frowny mouth. And the glasses on the desk, are those Ed's? I heart Ed with glasses. I CAN'T WAIT to read this fic.

Anyhoo, lovely illo! The light is especially nicely done, great effect.

Thanks! Those are Ed's indeed. Nyagosstar even specified the (steampunky, round) type of glasses Ed wears. Ed's actually over thirty here - as you can see, I totally failed to age up Roy's little baby face beyond a few cute salt and pepper streaks in his bangs. XD

Roy just has that kind of face, though, he'll look young forever. The bastard.

For sure. Unless Hawkeye's doomy predictions are right, and he dies young and leaves a beautiful corpse? *sobs*

I still prefer my version of the events leading up to and following this moment. XD But the illo is awesome and you make me want to buy another tablet again.What brand would you like to upgrade to when I give up on it?

I really love what you did with this, and I am so excited to see the fic once it's up. Hopefully by then I'll have caught up with the rest of them a little more?

I like your version too, although there are fewer plot twists than the original. Unless Ed saying yes to a hot tub full of Emperor Ling is a plot twist? XD I'll have to think on it, but perhaps a Wacom?

Yay thanks. The fic's awesome. I'm sooooo behind with my Big Bang reading and commenting.

Well, I imagine it would bee quite the plot twist given what you've told me. XD Who deosn't want a hut tub full of Emperor Ling?

BTW, showed this to Bob and he started giving me shit for being a failure with the tablet (Well at least you given it to someone who knows how to use this stuff, etc.). *sobs*

Me too man, me too.

Damn, nice lighting! Why aren't you doing National Comic Writing Month with us again? >>

Because ... I spent my leisure hours last month wrestling with a 20 000 word plotfic for Big Bang, then I was foolish enough to sign up to illustrate four different Big Bang fics, plus I have a help_haiti fic to write, two springkink fics just done and another in the works, sundry other non-fandom projects outside of work due over the next couple of weeks, and oh yeah, when I'm done with all that I want to finish up the last part of my big mystery/political shenanigans/UST fic, No Small Injury. Plus original fic. And work. And having a life.

So, uh, don't tempt me? Please. XD

Thanks! Ed's glasses are in at the request of the author. Ed's actually a little older here, thirtysomething (not that you can tell from my failure to age up Roy XD) and he wears reading glasses occasionally in her fics. Aww.
