Rating/Warning(s): PG-13, drinking, sexual references, Spoilers for backstory in Vol. 15
Genre: Romance, Angst
WIP?: No
Why This Must Be Read: Having only just discovered the joy that is FMA, finding excellent Roy/Riza fic has just been an added bonus. This one contains all the pining, miscommunication, and unsaid feelings that anyone can see between the two in the series. Also, it's both humorous and lovely.
Author's note on story: This fic is predicated entirely on the idea that Roy Mustang is a total lightweight and a randy, flirty drunk.

Why This Must Be Read: This was a Yuletide highlight for me. A glimpse into one of TV's most realistic, loving couples 20 years ago and today. One of the things that really comes through in this is the genuine affection both of them have for the other, which is one of my favorite things about them.

Genre: post-series, yuletide
WIP?: no

Why This Must Be Read: Betty comes home from London. Now she just has to get her life back in order, but with all the changes she's gone through during her time in London. The character voices jump off the page, and the author gets into Betty's head really well. I especially love how Betty realized that the life she's been chasing all these years isn't what she invisioned. That's the kind of honesty to oneself that you'd definitely expect from her. Wonderfully written.
