lykomancer: (Worlds apart--Hed)
Title: All Saints' Day
Pairing: Kinda-sorta-almost Hohenheim/Ed
Words: 2,050
Genre: ...angstish, fluffish. More or less gen.
Rating: PG-13
Spoilers: EoS
Warnings: Something almost incesty, but not really.
Dedication: For [ profile] devils_devotion, who requested a drabble with the cue of "simul istus et peccator" which means "simultaneously justified and a sinner" (or "simultaneously a saint and a sinner"), which is the theology at the heart of Lutheran soteriology.
Other notes: Sorry, Demi, this came out far, far more gen than I intended. I tried. I tried really hard. (So hard it became a whole fic in the attempt!) And I failed. Blah; I don't think this is all that great, and I'm really sorry for that, too.

However, I DID finish it on the right day for the title to be appropriate )

Title:  The Lashes of the Scourge
Words:  ~980
Genre:  Gen—angst, past-fic; Hohenheim-centric
Rating:  G
Spoilers:  Wholesale, for the entire series
Previous Parts:
1-- Divine Proportion
2-- Day Star
3-- Out of the Whirlwind
4-- Risen From the Ashes
5-- Fallen From Heaven
6-- For Whom the Bell Tolls
Notes:  I have a couple of theories on Hohenheim and his sons’ appearances.
As I told [profile] absolut_artemis:
The body that Hoho-papa used to knock up Dante was different than the one he inhabited while living with Trisha, ensuring different genetics [for Envy and Ed]. (Ok, I know what you’re thinking: if that’s the case, then why do Hohenheim, Ed, Al, and trueform!Envy all have gold hair and eyes; obviously, there has to be some genetic connection between them for that to happen. I have several ideas on this:
1) Either Hoho-papa tends to pick bodies that are similar in looks for some reason whenever he changes hosts, or
2) No matter what his physical body starts out looking like, eventually it ends up (for some reason) looking the same, like the soul’s imprint of his original body works its way outward to express itself on his flesh, or
3) …why the fuck do I have to explain this? >.< Envy having blond hair and gold eyes is obviously just a way of making a quick-n-easy plot device/movement, rather than having to explain his origins out slowly and painfully. Gawddammit.
I'm exploiting option #2 here, folks.
This one is also a lot closer to an actual story-style fic than the others.


 This circle scourges the sin of envy... )

I perished in an arrogant self-reliance
Ages ago; and in that act, a prayer
For one more chance went up so earnest, so
Instinct with better light let in by death,
That life was blotted out-- not so completely
But scattered wrecks enough of it remain,
Dim memories, as now, when once more seems
The goal in sight again.

Some interesting snips pulled from the above )

Reject those glorious visions of God's love
And man's design; laugh loud that God should send
Vast longings to direct us; say how soon
Power satiates these, or lust, or gold; I know
The world's cry well, and how to answer it

The tales were many... )

*Some of the oldest scraps concerning the story of Abraham and Isaac on the mountain actually do report that Abraham sacrifices the boy, and that God returns him to life three days later as a reward for Abraham's loyalty.
If you aren't familiar with it, I highly recommend The Hero With A Thousand Faces by Joseph Campbell, who explores the Hero archetype in myth and folklore.

Title: Day Star
Words: ~450
Genre: Gen—Angst, Hohenheim and pre-Envy Envy-centric
Rating: G
Spoilers: Wholesale, for the entire series
Notes: I refuse on principle to use "Hohenheim Junior" or "Hojo," so pre-Envy Envy got rechristened. This also allows me to make multileveled connections and tie-ins later, so...
Oh, yeah. And this is intended as a flash-back type scene that fits after my last Hoho-drabble, which is why it's in present tense.
And as a side note, for those of you interested, keep an eye on my listed music. I'm making sure that I pick songs that go with these pieces just for the fun of it. ^_^

Last line is adapted from Proverbs 27:4
Cinnabar, HgS, is, like all mercury compounds, highly toxic. The Chinese were very aware of the poisonous properties of most of their alchemical concoctions, especially those that promised immortality, leading Kristofer Schipper to note in The Taoist Body that "...the final act of the Taoist search for immortality may very well imply suicide."

To Whom It May Concern;

I want a Hohenheim Elric. Standard dimensions, coloration, and IQ; English-speaking preferred; a few years younger if possible (although if this is non-negotiable, I completely understand and am still interested in said item). If you are out of stock, may I suggest ordering in a new shipment; I am willing to pay the extra cost for the special order and for overnight shipping and handling.

Please find attached my user information, which contains most necessary contact info if there are any problems, concerns, or questions. Also, I will email you the copy of my seminary school ID; clergy discounts do apply to students, correct?

It's a pleasure doing business with you (as always),

Thank God for [profile] sky_dark. Thanks to her daily morning lj posts, I always know what day of the week it is. This saves me much embarrassment later.
(, this wasn't sarcasm, actually. It really is helpful as all hell.)


Whoever invented Veggie Tales was on more drugs than any single human ever should be. I was forced to watch a VT version of the book of Esther this morning, and I don't think I could ever handle that again without experiencing brain-meltage.
Still, it was much, much better than the claymation version of Ruth we were forced to experience watched the other day; I swear to God, that little piece of horror made me want to spork my own eyes out. It would have hurt less, I'm sure.
PEOPLE! For the love of all that is holy, please stop doing such horrible, terrible, mutilating things to Bible stories when you animate them. It doesn't make them better. It doesn't help.
It makes the seminary students who have to watch them cry tears of blood and try to rip out their own still-beating heart with their gel pens, mm-kay?!
Please, think of the students.


I didn't stop with Al. I went and continued with Ed.
I think they're pretty as hell, but then, I did spend a lot of time on them. Really, I don't know what's wrong with me; I'm a smut-writer, not a visual artist. *cries*
