Hey everyone, I'm mixedvalence. "Mixed valence" is an obscure chemical term related to compounds that have the same element in multiple oxidation states, like Chevreul's salt, or copper(I,II) sulfite. I like a lot of things, but Fire Emblem is why I come to Fanfiction.net. Specifically, I am an unabashed fan of self-insert stories, which have inspired me to write my own, Earthborne, and Those Who Can't Teach.

Whispers and Songs by Howling Armadillo reviews
When Ben (SI) first finds himself in Ylisse, his first goal is to get out as fast as possible. But all of that starts to change as he discovers the depth of the connections he has to this new world. The world of Fire Emblem is lethal, especially to outsiders, but to run means leaving behind far more than just the war. It means leaving behind a new family as well...

Birth and Re-Death by ThreeDollarBratwurst reviews
I swear, every time I turn around, someone else has got a clever idea to get me killed. And it usually works. Death doesn't seem too keen on sticking with me, though, so I guess I can get over it. Self-insert. Playfully testing the limits of what Rated T means. Cover image by Xcell

An Odd Awakening by Syntaxis reviews
A young man is sucked into the world of Fire Emblem Awakening through his computer screen. But things are... different. Very different. Timelines are wonky and Chrom is... a girl? AU, gender bender.

Rigged from the Start by TheBobcat18 reviews
To sum things up, I'm screwed. It's one thing to wind up in a story I know, but what happens when I get sent to one I've only heard whispers of? One rife with the undead, a Fell Dragon, and a scrappy band of Shepherds clinging to the last vestiges of hope. Time to find out. That is, if I live long enough to do so. A Fire Emblem Awakening SI.

Flying Blind by iwantmyburd reviews
I should have just stayed in bed. It's bad enough that I got whisked away from my home to a completely different world while in my pajamas. Now I have to stumble through the plot of a story I haven't even heard yet. All I can do is try to survive, and pray I don't screw things up too badly.

Strings Attached by Syntaxis reviews
When a voice from the void transports Piper Pendergast to Fódlan with only a god-blessed guitar, she's more than a little confused. But with the help of newfound friends, Piper might just pick and strum her way to a happy ending. A Fire Emblem Three Houses insert. Rated T for language and violence.

All the World's a Sale by Narwhal Lord reviews
All the world's a sale, And all the men and women merely opportunities. An actor (Self-Insert) wakes up in Valm after a nasty incident in a play, and finds himself on the road with Anna. They become fast friends as the adventure unfolds, but the road to the end of Awakening won't be so easy... Adventure/Humor story containing darker themes.

Entrapped (Original Draft) by Cavik reviews
It starts with you walking down the stairs. One second later, you're tossed into Fódlan, taken to Garreg Mach Monastery and forced to watch out for both the Church's officials and the various factions plotting against it. This is the reality I live in now. And I have to find a way back before I'm dragged into the incoming war. (No longer updating)

Shattered by Chifle reviews
Life is a journey full of surprises, wouldn't you agree? Getting transported to Fodlan counts as a surprise I suppose. Without a clear way back home, there is no other choice but to push forward. A story about an unlucky fellow that has to make it through life in a world he thought was only real in the minds of people with too much imagination. (SI)

Aberration by RedXEagl3 reviews
In the blink of an eye, I was transported across dimensions into a world I'd only seen through a screen. It wasn't a game anymore, though. It was a living, breathing place, filled with people that had their own problems and troubles. The road ahead is stained with blood and laden with bodies, but it's one that leads to a beautiful sunrise. (SI) (Cover by Hidewari/Robin on Twitter)

Fire Emblem: Spellbinding Radiance by FoxwolfJackson reviews
There are things in this world stranger than fiction. I guess my life would be such a thing. A simple, mundane task turns into a grand adventure that spiral out of my control. The lesson I have learned is fate will fight you, even if you know the future. My home is no longer Earth, but the land of Tellius. How I adapt... is necessary to my survival.

Did You Just Psychoanalyze Cthulhu? by RedXEagl3 reviews
Robin attempts to understand the Fell Dragon and Wings of Despair, Grima. Trying to find out why a megalomaniacal genocidal abomination is the way that it is is perhaps not the best tactic to employ.

Unfortunately, I didn't get much of a choice in the matter. (Self-insert fic, DISCONTINUED but extras will be posted.)

The Retainers' Promise by NumberCDLI reviews
"Promise me, that if and when you can, you will return to us. Even if it's just a little while." Anankos was dead. Peace was restored, and as Selena, Odin, and Laslow were preparing to return to Ylisse, they made a promise to Camilla, Leo, and Xander to return to the World of Fates. And they were going to keep their promise.

Love Is Like Killing by Hizzonner reviews
Beruka has a new type of mission before her, for which she is uniquely unprepared-a date. Fortunately, Selena has some advice to help her: just treat it like a hit job. Takes place in Conquest shortly after the fight with Ryoma at Macarath. Has a sequel, "Hans Must Die," but it is not necessary to read any other story to understand this one.

Relationship Status by Boo2020 reviews

The Lost King by The Apocryphal One reviews
History, when it bothered to remember King Garon, would only remember him as the lost king who fell prey to an outside force he could not hope to combat, a stepping stone paving the way for greater things. But he was a man like anyone else and, before Anankos, had a story like anyone else. A story wrapped in tragedy, but a story that should be told nonetheless.

Daydreams and Nightmares by lambentLodestar reviews
It's a weird sensation to fall asleep in California one day and wake up in Ylisse at the same time. Apparently my name is now Shanzira, and I'm trying not to die here. Came pretty close already. I need to brush up on my knowledge of this game; it's been two years since it came out, and being in college and all, I've had my hands full, what with animating. Robin, don't let me die!

Honestly, at this point I'm just going with the flow. ON HIATUS FOR NANOWRIMO/FINALS

Those Who Can't Teach reviews
When you're from another world, mopping classrooms and organizing bookshelves at Garreg Mach for room and board is a pretty sweet deal. It seems easy enough to keep a low profile, but as an outsider in a world like Fódlan, you'll need to make friends fast to stay employed—and alive.
