If you would like to submit a fic there are some things you'll need to do before you before submitting it. It'll save me a lot of time, and your story will get posted faster. Just follow these few steps.

1. Make sure that your fic is about Fullmetal Alchemist. I'm pretty sure this should be obvious, but one can never be sure. =P

2. Have a beta reader [proofreader] read your story. It's better to have someone else read your story for mistakes than you proofreading it yourself; when you read something you wrote, you'll most likely skip over the mistakes and read it how it's meant to be instead of how it is.

3. Include a header in your story. It'll make it easier to archive, and I will not post a story without one. Here's an example of what to include:

Title: Philosopher's Stone
Part: 1/1
Author: Edward
Rating: PG
Character/Pairing: Edward, Alphonse, Roy/Ed if you read it that way
Disclaimer: I don't own them.
Summary: The Elric brothers finally find the Philosopher's Stone, but is it everything they expected to be?
Warnings: profanity
[optional] Genre: angst
[optional] Archived: Equivalent Trade < >
[optional] Spoilers: N/A
[optional] Feedback: Yes, please!
[optional] Author's Note: Thanks to my beta reader.

4. Send your story to with Equivalent Trade or something similar as the Subject. There are a few ways to do this. One, you can copy and paste your fic into an e-mail and send it. Two, you can send me a link to your story somewhere on the web. Or three, you can send it as an attachment, but only as an HTML or plain text file.

If you are wondering why your fic isn't on the site, please check the FAQ in the Site section.
