Fullmetal Alchemist, 11 recs, Riza Hawkeye/Roy Mustang

Fandom Category: Fullmetal Alchemist
Pairing: Riza Hawkeye/Roy Mustang
Fic Title: The Alchemist's Silicon and Gold
Author: AlphaCentauri.42
Link: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/6065776/1/The-Alchemist-s-Silicon-and-Gold
Rating/Warning(s): K+
Genre: Romance/Hurt/Comfort
WIP?: No, oneshot.

Why This Must Be Read: In retrospect, Riza had to admit calling her superior "useless" wasn't one of her more brilliant ideas. A wonderful, fun conversation between Riza and Roy that reveals some lovely insight into their relationship. And with an excerpt like this, I don't feel like there's much more I should add:

Everyday after the event, whenever he wasn't busy obsessing over the search for Scar, he sulked about the office, leaving his paperwork unfinished or halfheartedly filled with mistakes that she had to spend overtime correcting. But Riza was kind, and she tolerated and even forgave his childish behavior – until she found him standing melodramatically in the rain, staring into the gray overcast, chanting "useless... useless... useless..." like a mournful prayer to the sky.

Fic Title: Every Missing Irony
Author: words without

Rating/Warning(s): Teen
Genre: Angst/Romance
WIP?: Complete.

Why This Must Be Read: -Certain RoyRiza themes- "You think: I won't survive this."

This is really a thematic oneshot series, which means that in the course of thirty chapters, it really does have everything. I think the author gets their co-dependence and devotion completely right.

Fic Title: Indecent
Author: hmmingbird

Rating/Warning(s): K+
Genre: Humor
WIP?: No, oneshot.

Why This Must Be Read: Edward describes something he should not have seen.

Who doesn't like an outsider's POV? Especially Ed's, considering exactly what he thinks of Roy Mustang... I've always liked the emphasis placed on small gestures, and this fic depicts one with great humour.

Pairing: Riza Hawkeye/Roy Mustang, minor Riza/other and Roy/other
Fic Title: Casualties
Author: Miskcat
Link: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/4318541/1/Casualties
Rating/Warning(s): Mature (non-explicit sex)
Genre: Angst
WIP?: No. Completed.

Why This Must Be Read: As Roy and Riza work together in East City, sublimating their deeper feelings for a higher good, they must beware of how this sublimation affects others around them.

This is probably my favourite Roy/Riza story for the intensity it builds. It is written entirely through other people's POV, and while it's painful to see them being dysfunctional, it's a wonderful read.

Fic Title: An Alignment
Author: coincident
Link: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/8853750/1/Original-Sin
Rating/Warning(s): K
Genre: General
WIP?: No. Completed oneshot.

Why This Must Be Read: Loyalty unabstracting itself. Post-mission difficulties in a sharpshooter's line of work.

coincident is one of my favourite authors for her careful, atmospheric prose, and this is no exception, the prose is gorgeous. This Riza-centric fic also touches on consequences of her line of work that don't often get considered. I like the Riza/Roy relationship subtle and understated, with plenty of wordless understanding, and this story delivers. I love how well they know each other; I love how well coincident characterises Riza and her personal drive for the mission.

Fic Title: If You See Light
Author: sixpences
Link: http://penways.livejournal.com/18824.html
Rating/Warning(s): I'd say light R (sex, violence, swearing, PTSD)
Genre: Dealing with their issues.
WIP?: No. Oneshot.

Why This Must Be Read: Everyone has their coping mechanisms. Pre-manga, life in East City.

Very few people just get Riza and Roy better than sixpences does. I love a story that takes PTSD and coping with it seriously. The story balances the serious issues, and the endearing quality of being young and in love, and hot make-outs, with careful humour. I love all the little touches and thought that the author's put into it (which you can see in the commentary), all wrapped up in stunning prose that does not distract from the content.

Fic Title: Allegiance
Author: Bookwrm389
Link: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/6500231/1/Allegiance
Rating/Warning(s): Teen
Genre: Drama/Humor
WIP?: Complete

Why This Must Be Read: When the Eastern Rebellion came to an end, one man looked on his comrades with the eyes of a king. One by one, we became his soldiers and he became our leader. We are Colonel Roy Mustang's most loyal subordinates, and these are our stories.

While this story focuses in Team Mustang, there are major Roy/Riza undertones that - as someone who read it mostly for Roy and Riza - I really enjoyed. Which is not to say the examination of the characters isn't excellent. it is. I love the dynamic that the author's built up, I love the adventures the author thought up, and I love Roy and Riza's place in it.

Fic Title: Worst Kept Secret
Author: SammyQuill
Link: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/6596214/1/Worst-Kept-Secret
Rating/Warning(s): K+
Genre: Is cuteness a genre?
WIP?: No. Oneshot

Why This Must Be Read: Roy Mustang and Riza Hawkeye are sure no one knows their secret. Wouldn't they be surprised?

Who doesn't like outsider's POV? (Yet again.) Roy Mustang's team notice small things that give Roy and Riza away. And it is lovely.

Fic Title: fraternization
Author: zauberer_sirin

Rating/Warning(s): R (sex)
Genre: future!fic, fluff, sexytimes
WIP?: No. Completed oneshot.

Why This Must Be Read: it starts as a joke, but the rule-breaking is all too real.

Because apparently army regulations in Amestris don't actually cover sleeping with your comrades. Or something. Either way, this story is both hot, fun, and captures a lot of the warmth of a long relationship.

Author: lightningwaltz

Rating/Warning(s): Mature (sex)
Genre: I'd say drama.
WIP?: No. Completed oneshot.

Why This Must Be Read: She understands that there is no true glory in war. Roy and Riza just after Ishval.

Raw, aching, and hot. The author has managed to combine Riza and Roy's history with their strange dynamics and wonderfully in character sex, in under 2000 words.

Author: prodigy

Rating/Warning(s): Explicit (sex)
Genre: PWP
WIP?: No. Complete oneshot.

Why This Must Be Read: She is the Colonel's man.

Riza copes with wanting what she can't have (yet). There's a fine balance between Riza's character and the smut, and I love how clearly her pride and belief come through.

Rating/Warning(s): NC-17 (sex, mentions of war)
Genre: PWP with character?
WIP?: No, oneshot.

Why This Must Be Read: [Slight spoilers for the end of the manga]Five times Roy and Hawkeye had sex while on the road during his campaign for president

With a summary like that... I love this story for its different settings, and the different people Roy and Riza meet while on the road. It's an excellent way to meld their guilt and actions with the present.

Fic Title: Take Aim
Author: glamaphonic

Rating/Warning(s): Mature (sex)
Genre: Character study
WIP?: No, oneshot.

Why This Must Be Read: Riza Hawkeye, before.

Exactly what it says on the tin. How Riza became Riza (in wonderful language and detail), and her relationship with Roy throughout. I am particularly touched by how well the author draws Riza's determination, how well the author undersatnds her character. A must-read just from a character POV.
