Author has written 12 stories for Fullmetal Alchemist, D.Gray-Man, and Kingdom Hearts.

You seem to have found your way to the fan-literary abode of the filthy, gourmandising libertine, the wretched, dissolute and rakish roustabout informally known as picaropicara. If this is where you wanted to be then congratulations to you. However if you came here for regularly updated, cheerful or overtly shipped fanfiction you have definitely taken a wrong turning. Back unto the abyss for you.

In case you hadn't noticed from the ancient updates of most of my fics, I am a lazy and ultimately self-serving writer. I procrastinate, put off and forget about most of what I start, which is why I try desperately to avoid writing chaptered fics. I'm just bad at them what with the whole well thought out plots, continuous updates etc. However, I am trying to get better at this with the aid of my partner in crime timydamonkey and hopefully you will see chaptered fics available here soon complete with maudlin sub-plots and the cynical destruction of most of your expectations.

It'll be a laugh.

Sailing the Seven Seas - My DGM Shipping Crisis

If you've enjoyed the above fic then I would appreciate your help. The collection is mostly an attempt to get me to start writing again in drips and drops and with eyeball-gnawing slowness. The problem is that whilst I have a surfeit of inspiration for the pairings I do enjoy, I'm sorely lacking in motivation and inspiration for the pairings I don't.
So I'm searching for prompts for any of the pairings below. PM me with your suggestions.

More information on The-Project-That-Is-Eating-My-Brain can be found over here, including progress reports, updates and frustrated babbling. Sometimes there is tea.

Lenalee/Kanda - Complete, see Grow (in the Sailing collection-fic)
Lenalee/Allen - Complete, see Duty
Lavi/Allen - ?
Lavi/Kanda - Complete, see In Training
Kanda/Allen - In Progress
Tyki/Allen - Complete, see King of Hearts

A brief note on pairings: I honestly don't care if the pairing is canon or fandom, gay or straight - just as long as it's written well. My own favourite pairings tend to be the ones where I've found some kind of justification in the source material (which may only be obvious to me ') As it is, I prefer non-explicit romance anyway, don't expect porny things here.
