I am currently obsessed with what you see to the left!
If you're curious about the progress on the fics I'm writing, or would like to ask questions or chat, you can reach me at griseldabanks dot tumblr dot com, or send an email to gbfanfiction at gmail dot com.
I am now on Archive Of Our Own! I'm currently cross-posting some of my better fics over there, starting with the most recent and working my way backwards. From now on, I will post new fics simultaneously on both sites, so if you prefer AO3, you can follow me there too. My username there is Griselda_Banks.
If you like non-Elricest fics about the Elric Brothers, check out my community "FullMetal Brothers." If you like well-written in-character Royai, check out my community "So What Do You Say, Lieutenant?"
!!ATTENTION!! Please beware the user known as Lacan Shinn (who also goes by Shinji Ikari or Paul). He has been identified by multiple users (including myself) as engaging in harassing, manipulative, and threatening behaviors, and outright stalking in one case. He makes multiple accounts to get around users blocking him, so that he can continue to harass them through PMs and signed reviews that the user can't delete. Just go looking through the reviews on some of my FMA fics, and you'll see what I mean. An extensive document has been compiled, gathering evidence from multiple sources of his unacceptable behavior, which can be read here: docs dot google dot com / document / d / 1bU2I89LE1UAtl8ETh_As_IiBII_c2ktmOw4HI3-SndY / edit

What you can expect when reading my fics:
-I never start posting anything until I've completed at least the first draft.
-Barring unforeseen technical difficulties or other unique circumstances, updates are every other Friday.
-I make a point to respond to every review I can. I'm open to suggestions and always appreciate constructive criticism! I will note, however, that if your review consists of just one word, I'm not going to take the time to reply to it :P If you don't have an account here and want a response to an anonymous review, please contact me via Tumblr or the email address above.
-There will be absolutely no explicit sexual content and only a bare minimum of language in my fics. I take such things seriously, and if I ever feel the need to toe the line on this issue, I will make a point to place clear warnings about what to expect. I want my readers to feel safe when opening one of my fics.
-The only pairings I write are heterosexual, and I lean heavily towards canon pairings.
-I have opinions about physical forms of non-romantic affection (for specific people in specific situations) that sometimes differ from what is generally considered culturally acceptable/normal in a lot of Western cultures. If you're curious about that or you have questions or need clarification of anything about this, please either reach out to me directly or refer to my post here: novelmonger dot tumblr dot com / whitetree
