batsutousai: (FMA-uniformEd)

Title: Burning All the Bridges
Series: Come Hell or High Water
Fandom: Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood/manga
Author: Batsutousai
Rating: Mature
Pairings: Gracia Hughes/Maes Hughes/Roy Mustang
Warnings: Pirate AU, polyamory, canon-typical violence, mind control, character death, angst, loss, Ed's potty mouth
Summary: The shadows of the military were far more terrifying than any of them could have guessed, and Team Mustang is forced to run for their lives, and the lives of those they hold most dear.

Disclaim Her: This story is based on characters and situations created and owned by Arakawa Hiromu and various publishers. No money is being made and no copyright or trademark infringement is intended.

A/N: For day 2 of the FMA Polyship Week on tumblr. This day's prompts included the theme of Battle, imagine your polyship on the run, and the dialogue prompt "This is one fight I'm not getting involved in." Which resulted in this foolery.

I did warn you people to watch out for more of this stupid AU, dammit.
Kudos to Guest+Princess on AO3, who was the one to suggest the series title. I put it up on twitter and tumblr for people to vote between my idea and this one, and this is the one that most people seemed to like. (It's growing on me, tbh.)
This sort of explains why Team Mustang are stuck playing pirates, because backstory is...something. Also, I accidentally headcanoned Gracia/Maes/Roy while I was working on Sun Over the Yardarm, and this IS Polyship Week, so...

*coughs and pointedly throws the canon timeline out the window* I'm going to hate myself later for doing that, because I'm spastic about my calendars, but some character backstories are just different enough to fuck with it anyway, so... (Why do I do this shit to myself? *glowers at muse*)

I blame the fucking US election for how late this is. Pre-election stress and post-election depression conspired. The fact that this fic ends with Team Mustang running away from the bad guys because there's no way for them to win doesn't help. :/

batsutousai: (FMA-DariusHeinkel)

Title: Sun Over the Yardarm
Series: Come Hell or High Water
Fandom: Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood/manga
Author: Batsutousai
Rating: Mature
Pairings: Darius/Heinkel, pre-Darius/Edward Elric/Heinkel
Warnings: Pirate AU, all the fucking pottymouths, Ed is an insubordinate shit, canon-typical violence, mentioned discrimination against LGBTQIA+, implied racial discrimination, untagged background ships, established relationship, preship
Summary: Darius and Heinkel had only picked up pirating because their job choices on land were slim, but it ended up being the best choice for their personal lives, too.

Disclaim Her: This story is based on characters and situations created and owned by Arakawa Hiromu and various publishers. No money is being made and no copyright or trademark infringement is intended.

A/N: For FMA Polyship Week on tumblr. Today's prompts included the theme of Differences and the dialogue prompt of "That's way too much for one person." Both of which are sort of only sideways in there, but close enough. XP

There I was one night, innocently trying to sleep, when it occurred to me that it would be AWESOME to have these three boys serving on a pirate ship. I haven't decided, yet, if I regret that life choice or not. XP
Related, these ship weeks need to stop spawning AUs with epic backstory, because this shit is the worst kind of fodder for my muse, holy fuck. Someone save me. (And please don't be surprised if this AU pops up again this week.)

I did try to research nautical terminology for this, for the most part, but if I've completely bollocked something up, I'm sorry.

The ending feels a bit bleh to me, but I mostly just wanted it done, by that point, and I didn't have a chance for an edit reread of any sort. So.
