Do you have any story lines that are not ready for productions? Do you want to share that with us? Then please post yours here!!
I have several ideas for FMA fan fics. Some are just a few lines long, others are more involved.
Here goes idea #1:
Just Wait Till You Father Gets Home
Hohenheim didn't really abandon his family, he was just on an extra long trip due to travel delays, having to take alternate routes due to road constructions, getting kdinapped by pirates, yadda yadda, yadda. So he comes back to find his wife dead and his two sons preparing to attempt a forbidden Human Transmuation. Both Edward and Alphonse are SO grounded.
Here is idea #2
The Amazing Dr. Hohenheim
AU. Based on the movies The Amazing Dr. Clitterhouse, and the Charlie Chan series. Plus touchs of The Thinking Machine stories. Hohenheim Elric is not 400 years old, he's a normal human with an ex wife (Dante, also normal), and a current wife, (Trisha). With Dante, he had two sons: Nicholas, and Maurice (?) (that name could change)[ in the FMA world, they were the homuculi Envy, and Greed]. With Trisha, he has Edward and Alphonse.
His divorce was amicable, he gets along with Dante, Dante gets along with Trisha - but the boys fight like cats and dogs. Dr. Hohenheim helps the police solve baffling crimes - but lately, he's had to take his 4 sons along to help because Nicholas and Maurice are tired of babysitting their half brothers. And of course the ex wife and the wife come along to because they worry about the scrapes their kids will get into. And they get into plenty of trouble due to fraternal bickering!
Their first case all together has Detective Inspector Mustang calling them in on the murder of a General (Alex Armstrong's dad) in a locked room - which no one but the General had a key to.
Orphan idea #3
Fleeing Hurrican Katrina, cajun musician Molly Xavier leaves her isolated bayou home in Terrebone Parish and heads for relatives and safety in Lafayette. Only problem is, the main road is choked with hurricane refugees and Molly takes a chance on a little used side road. Driving her old Toyota, Musashi ,through a stand of pine woods, she drives through a spontaneous gate and winds up in - Risembool. Language barriers abound - no one in Amestris speaks cajun French, and Molly's English skills have atrophied. Winry buys her car ( which has stopped running) and Molly takes a train to Central, where she tries to make a living as a street musician. (she has brought her button accordion, fiddle, and accoustic guitar with her)
Roy Mustang is not amused when Molly takes up residence near Central HQ and he has her arrested for vagrancy. Molly insults Roy with Louisiana vigor ("Rat batard le Colonel!") while he tries to figure out where she is from so he can have her deported. One day, two tired, dusty strangers limp in to Risembool, it's the Elric brothers, home after 4 years in the machine world. They find WInry happily stripping Musashi into scrap, and after she opens the trunk, Al finds it loaded with boxes. Said boxes contain mostly old photo albums, it's the Xavier family heirlooms Molly was trying to save from the hurricane. Ed goes digging through the car and he finds a collection of road maps. Using these and the photo albums, Ed figures out where Molly is really from. He goes to Central and tries to convince Roy Molly is not a vagrant, but just another lost soul trying to find a way home.
Orphan idea #4
There are plenty of fics about Ed in the machine world, but none about people from the machine world who get stranded in the alchemic world.
Submitted For Your Approval
An early 1950s test pilot [variation: the crew of a 1950s space ship, think of all those "B" movies!] hits the sound barrier, opens a Gate, and crashes in the Briggs Mountains. The pilot escapes death via his parachute, but then has to contend with the Drachman Army which chases him to hell and gone. Once he goes far enough south, he meets up with the Armed Forces of Amestris who chase him all the way back.
Somehow, he eludes his pursuers and winds up in Risembool. Where the brilliant alchemist, Hohenheim Elric just wants him gone because he's getting too close to Hohenheim's wife, Trisha. It's a three way Mexican stand off!
What I'm not sure of is how far along Hohenheim and Trisha are in their relationship. They could be newly married, or have one or both sons already. Hohenheim could meet the pilot while on the way home from one of his long trips, or he could come home and find the man hiding in his basement. ["Trisha! You got some 'splainin' to do!"]
Orphan idea #5
C.S.I. - Maes Hughes[u]
After being murdered by Envy, Mae Hughes's soul hurtles through the Gate to 21st century Las Vegas. After coming to in alley, Maes goes staggering down it towards the bright lights of Fremont Street. Suddnely, he stumbles and falls over something soft, warm, - and wet. The LVPD, headed by Capt. Brass shows up with lights blazing just then and there is poor Maes, standing over a horribly mutilated corpse, and covered in it's blood. Jailed for a brutal murder he didn't commit, Maes Hughes needs the help of Gil Grissom and his crack team of C.S.I.s to pull his nuts out of the fire.
Yesh, I know, you think this is retarded; but it can't be any worse than all the FMA/HP crossovers I see over on FF.net!
