Nine Recs for Fullmetal Alchemist (Mostly Winry/Ed, but other pairings, too)

Fandom Category: Fullmetal Alchemist (2003 anime)
Pairing: Winry Rockbell/Edward Elric
Fic Title: The Light in the Upstairs Window
Author: Cornerofmadness/D. M. Evans
Link: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/2721454/1/The-Light-in-the-Upstairs-Window
Rating/Warning(s): M; some sexual content, violence, gore, disappearances of people off-screen, cannibalism
Genre: Action/Mystery
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: I come back and reread this story semi-regularly. There’s something bad happening in a small northern town, and Edward, Alphonse, and Winry get involved to find out if someone’s trying to make a Philosopher’s Stone. Somewhat creepy, lots of mystery, and the beginnings of Something Happening between Winry and Ed.

Fandom Category: Fullmetal Alchemist (2003 Anime/Conqueror of Shamballa)
Pairing: Riza Hawkeye/Roy Mustang, Winry Rockbell/Edward Elric, Gracia Hughes/(Alter)Maes Hughes
Fic Title: When Sorrows Come
Author: Cornerofmadness/D. M. Evans
Link: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/7919899/1/When-Sorrows-Come (Previous stories in this series, which I've rec'd: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/3744895/1/The-Source-of-Sorrow http://www.fanfiction.net/s/4068421/1/Sorrow-s-Dark-Array)
Rating/Warning(s): M for series overall. Explosions, illnesses, near death experiences, character death(s).
Genre: Action/adventure
WIP?: No, but I’ve been promised a final story at some point, I just don’t expect it any time in the near future.

Why This Must Be Read: This series has just about everything – humor, action, adventure, jealousy, homecomings, romance, maybe babies, mostly happy endings. And Ed and Al return to Amestris.

Fandom Category: Fullmetal Alchemist (Manga)
Pairing: Winry Rockbell/Edward Elric
Fic Title: Enough
Author: Netta Sloan
Link: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/3891349/1/Enough
Rating/Warning(s): M. Sex.
Genre: Romance/Angst
WIP?: No.

Why This Must Be Read: Netta Sloan wrote some lovely stuff for Winry and Ed back when she still played in fandom. This is an example of what sort of work she can do. I’m actually more partial to her ‘Recovery’ series, but that’s about kids, and this is really sexy.

Fandom Category: Fullmetal Alchemist (Manga)
Pairing: Winry Rockbell/Edward Elric
Fic Title: lux perpetua luceat eis
Author: nefelokokkgia
Link: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/6244102/1/lux-perpetua-luceat-eis
Rating/Warning(s): M. Sex, bad words, post-108.
Genre: Romance/Angst
WIP?: No.

Why This Must Be Read: In my opinion, this is one of the more lyrical FMA stories out there. Winry decides to make Ed understand he can’t leave any more, not and come home broken each time.

Fandom Category: Fullmetal Alchemist (any)
Pairing: Winry Rockbell/Edward Elric
Fic Title: Granny’s Watching
Author: Thrills and Frills
Link: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/2896962/1/Granny-s-Watching
Rating/Warning(s): T. Humor; some of it of a sexual nature; teenagers being teenagers and actually realizing they’re attracted to each other, etc.
Genre: Humor
WIP?: No.

Why This Must Be Read: Pinako realizes that Winry – and Ed – are growing up. Not only that, that they might be attracted to each other. And this just won’t do.

Fandom Category: Fullmetal Alchemist (2003 Anime Alternate Reality)
Pairing: Winry Rockbell/Edward Elric
Fic Title: The UnBirthday Party
Author: Yuuki Hikari
Link: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/2412702/1/The-UnBirthday-Party
Rating/Warning(s): M. Sex in a semi-public place. Drunkenness.
Genre: I’d like to say romance, but not really. Friendship/Love/Angst might be more appropriate.
WIP?: Only in the very loosest of terms, as this is an excerpted “what might maybe happen” in Yuuki’s very long, incomplete fic, He Who Searches For Himself.

Why This Must Be Read: Winry’s birthday in Germany is nothing like she thought she’d expect. Mostly because it isn’t her birthday, but also because she’s new to Germany, and doesn’t really have a clue what’s going on. A very sweet look at a drunken first time – but only after you read the second chapter. Which has a tendency to make me misty-eyed.

Fandom Category: Fullmetal Alchemist (Manga/Brotherhood)
Pairing: Mei Chan/Alphonse Elric, Winry Rockbell/Edward Elric, Riza Hawkeye/Roy Mustang
Fic Title: Forecast
Author: Invaderk
Link: http://archiveofourown.org/works/522307
Rating/Warning(s): Teen
Genre: Romance
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: Three separate drabbles, one for each ship, and each dealing with the weather outside and how nice it is to be inside.

Fandom Category: Fullmetal Alchemist (2003 Anime/CoS)
Pairing: Riza Hawkeye/Roy Mustang
Fic Title: Apotheosis
Author: Miskcat
Link: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/3319966/1/Apotheosis
Rating/Warning(s): K+, Loss, major character death, tear jerker.
Genre: Drama
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: One of the best post-CoS stories where the Elric brothers don’t come home, at least in my opinion. This is a slow burn, and, if you’re like me, you’ll need tissues.

Fandom Category: Fullmetal Alchemist (Manga)
Pairing: Winry Rockbell/Edward Elric
Fic Title: The Cure Lies in the Curse
Author: SonjaJade
Link: http://archiveofourown.org/works/433851
Rating/Warning(s): T, PTSD, mental breakdown, UST. Post-108 fic.
Genre: Drama/Angst/Romance
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: An excellent look at what could’ve happened to Ed after the Promised Day; how he heals, and Winry’s part in all of it. A lovely piece!
