Cliche Bingo fanart, plus fic & vid recs

Finally! I can cross one square off last year's Cliché Bingo card. I picked 'vulnerability'... which gave me the excuse inspiration to draw this scene.

After the battle (Roy&Riza). Just speculation for the end of the manga.


(and I inked the one I posted the sketch of the other day. It's not yet colored though. And it needs at least a hint of background.)


fic recs:
Firefight by genarti (FMA)
gen; PG-13; Havoc, Mustang, Hawkeye; 1597 words
Summary: Well, what the hell, thinks Havoc. Nobody ever claimed working for the Flame Alchemist was boring.

Seriously cool snapshot of Mustang's team, doing what they do best. The voices are spot on!
The colonel's standing two yards closer -- well, he would, and it's not as if he's got anything to worry about -- and his coattails keep billowing. It's a very dramatic silhouette, and Jean is privately sure that's the entire reason the bastard colonel wears his coat so often. Hell, he probably maneuvers the air or something to make it billow more.
Heteronormativity, Gender Construction, and Non-Verbal Signalling in Intercultural Communication Situations (A Comedy) by mad_maudlin (SGA)
Pairing: John/Teyla, various others; PG-13; Mensa AU; ~35,000
Summary: In which Teyla may be plotting something, Keller may be delusional, Ronon may be cheating and John may in fact be the girl.

This was fantastic and funny and cracky and really refreshing.

speaking of stuff wot cracked me up: Total Eclipse of the Heart: Literal Video Version
It started out as Hogwarts, now it's Lord of the Flies.

There was another literal video I wanted to link, alas, Youtube was faster; it's already gone. Those Youtube folks need to read up on parody and fair use. This is ridiculous.

more crack: everybody loves roy! by morningeee (FMA)
Funny vid, though the cuts are a bit fast for my taste. I actually noticed that with most of the FMA vids I found interesting. Just a coincidence, or are vids in anime fandom cut faster than in Western media fandom? Like, a general stylistic trend?

Here's another one I really like, but which I'd enjoy even more if it would allow me a breather here and there to process the information.
All is fading by SerenKyun (FMA)
Song: Fading by Decyfer Down.
Really, darn fast... but it's so well-edited that it doesn't feel hectic. I love the music choice, too. Ensemble vid.

and I may have squeed slightly when I realised where Hawkeye's arm was.

:) I didn't want it to be too obvious a PDA, more like something you notice on second glance. I figured those two have deserved a moment like that, after all the battling and mayhem.

I'm interested to get into the practical differences on the creator's end if I ever get around to the FMA vids swimming around my brain.

I also found an entirely manga-based vid I found interesting; probably going to link it with the next batch. More recently I've found myself wishing I could vid myself. It seems like such a fascinating medium.
