In this thread, please claim or reserve your chapters for Project FMA. All discussion/questions should be directed here.

GUIDELINES FOR REQUESTING AND SUBMITTING A CHAPTER:
1) There are two ways to request a chapter.
a. The first is to claim it. I will periodically put a group of chapters up on this post to be claimed. All you have to do is reply in this thread telling me which of them you want. Claiming chapters will be on a first come first serve basis. You may only claim one chapter every 24 hours. This is to prevent entire volumes from being monopolized.

b. The second way is to reserve it. If there is a future chapter you would like to write that I have not put up to be claimed, you have the option of reserving it, and when I introduce the group of chapters the one you reserved is a part of, you will have first dibs on it for three days. If you do not claim it within that time period, you will lose the chapter. You may reserve a chapter once every seven days.
The waiting list: Reserved chapters will have a waiting list. If for whatever reason a reserved chapter is not claimed, it will go to the next person on the list, and so forth.

2) All submissions must be in accordance with this forum's rules and guidelines. Also, using this website as a reference, please keep your submissions at a "T" rating or lower.

3) Submissions must be in story format. Script or poem format is not allowed. Also, no inserted authors notes.

4) You must stick to canon events. Remember, we're trying to novelize the manga, not write a new story. Since you'll most likely be writing from a specific character's point of view, you can take some liberties when it comes to emotions or inner thoughts that haven't been blatantly expressed in the manga. However, these liberties must be within reason. If they aren't, we'll kindly ask you to revise your work.

5) Once you have completed your chapter, upload it to Google Docs and send the link to your editor.

For new writers: you'll be assigned an editor, so just hang on to your chapter until then smile.gif

Not sure which translation to use for your reference? Just do the best you can with what's available to you. If you're wary of fan translations, you can probably check out a copy of the official FMA volumes at your local library. Also, please make sure to stick to this list of name/place translations compiled by DistantBlue and other forum members.

Edit (I didn't want to double post lol): I'm going to go ahead and claim chapter three~

and reserve 52. \o/
Dearheart
Gah, sorry to do this to you...but could I please drop chapter 17 and reserve chapter 18 instead? Or is it too late for that?

I'd also like to claim chapter 5. *sniffles* (Poor Nina...) sad.gif
Aribelle
@Dearheart - no problem at all - you got it smile.gif
Causmicfire
I'd like to take on chapter 6, please.
Broken Chouchou
Crap. Just realized something. Reserved the wrong chapter. The chapter(s) I do want reserved is/are the one(s) covering the hospital scene, i.e any of 13, 14, and 15. It must've been Ed's bandaged head after the Devil's Nest incident that fooled me x.x

So I'll go ahead and reserve chapter 13 to start with, if that's okay.

(Also, if you like, you can drop my reservation of chapter 30)
Aribelle
@Causmicfire - done biggrin.gif

@Broken Chouchou - sure; I'll take away 30 and give you 13 instead.
hand-made-city
Ah! I'd like to reserve chapter 62, if that would be alright! smile.gif
Dearheart
Umm...I feel a little guilty doing this 'cause I know Broken Chouchou probably wanted to do it, but could I reserve chapter 15 (Steel Heart)?

The main reason why is because I've had something very specific in mind for the Winry-lectures-Al and the Ed-and-Al-talk-on-the-rooftop scenes for a long time, and I'd like to try it out. It keeps playing over and over in my head like a movie, and it's getting darn annoying. I need to do something with it, lol. (No, no, don't get worried. I won't being pulling any FMA 1 stunts on you. It's mostly dialog I'm playing around with, that's all.) tongue.gif

Having said that...Broken Chouchou, if I do that chapter, would you help me edit it? Since you wanted to do the hospital scenes, I'd really like work with you and get your feedback as well as kkg22104's. And if neither of you like how I've done it, I'll be perfectly willing to hand the chapter over to you. I'm sure you'd do a wonderful job with it. smile.gif

So would that be alright? Or do you really have your heart set on that part? Either way is just fine. biggrin.gif Just thought I'd try asking, at least.
Aribelle
^ I'll put you down for 15.

Also I want to clarify something (just because it seems like there might be questions later) - but if you decide to drop a chapter and pick up a new one your week does not start over. So, for instance, if you reserve a chapter on September first, and drop it/pick up another on the 5th, you can reserve the next on the 7th smile.gif
Neopuff
Okay, so, I'd like to reserve chapter 39. I'm surprised no one has yet, all the other great RoyAi scenes have been claimed.

And it says reserving one every 7 days? Okay then. Umm...is there any way to know which chapters will be the next ones to claim?

Also, I'll take chapter 8 if nobody else has already claimed it..

-edit-

I forgot to mention, if you need any more artists or editors, I can do that too x3
Broken Chouchou
@Dearheart

Gosh, of course you can do that chapter. It's not like I have first dibs or anything. And please don't worry about feeling guilty, I wouldn't mind at all biggrin.gif The main reason I wanted the hospital scene was because I wanted to depict the way Al starts to doubt himself, and his brother, and everything, from his point of view particularily and/or entirely. Always felt it must've been really heavy for him, being all alone, isolated, in that steel cage of a body. So it's not really the Winry-wrenching-Al or the brotherly rooftop scene I'm out to get. I just want the angst! xD

And sure, I'd love to help you edit! It'll be fun to see what you'll make out of it tongue.gif
DistantBlue
May I please reserve 99? I have a feeling I'll really want to write that one. XD

I put the chapters up for claiming grouped by volumes. So the next ones available will be those in volume three smile.gif

*whews* Oh gosh, thankyouthankyouthank you sooooo much! Do you mind very much if I hug you? biggrin.gif The last thing I'd want to do is up and grab something that someone else wanted. I don't want to be selfish, lol. I've been so afraid of doing that lately. (But don't mind me; I'm a perfectionist, so I'm like that all the time.) tongue.gif Thanks so much...and I've already put a big dent in that part (my fingers couldn't stop typing, not even at three in the morning!), so I might have stuff for you to beta-read really soon. biggrin.gif

And I feel really excited now; I'd have NO idea how to handle that Al angst scene, so I'm really happy you're doing it. I can't wait to see how it turns out!

Hahaha, can't see what I did to deserve a hug, but go ahead, hug it away xD

Anyway, looking forward to reading that dent of yours. I'm excited as well biggrin.gif
Elle-chan
May I claim chapter 47 if not claimed?
Aribelle
Sure! Since we want to try to get as many early chapters as possible taken care of (so we don't end up with all the later chapters covered but the earlier ones neglected), people can only request a later chapter once every seven days. However, chapters currently "up for grabs" (we're currently up to volume three) can be requested once a day. You can check the first post for more info smile.gif

So to make a very long story short, yes laugh.gif
Elle-chan
I already have it written it. Do you want me to send you it or post it here?
Sal_san
Can I claim chapter 10?

And finished chapters can be sent to kkg22104 or another editor via a link to the Google Docs file.
