    Summary

    Eddie thinks a lot about ways to die. He always has. It's fine.

    Except Anne doesn't agree with that assessment, and neither does Venom. (Dan mostly just wants Eddie to go a week without being hospitalized for any reason at all.)

    Summary

    "You’ve all grown so much," their mother says.

    Edmund is too young to register, but older now than he was at his first war; Lucy, who had been so young when they had left, grew into herself in a world filled with magic. All of them, they have responsibility pressed into their shoulders, old ropes they can’t even grasp for. No one is asking them to take that mantle on their shoulders, and that’s the hardest part. You get used to the weight. You build your world around it, build your identity into the crooks and crannies of the load you carry.

    Susan has forgotten about being a child. She is the blessed, the chosen, the promised. Susan has decades on her classmates, wars, loss and betrayal, victory and growing fields, the trust of her subjects. It was a visceral thing, to have all those lives under her protection and to know that her subjects slept safe, peacefully, on dark nights.

    Here, on this drab concrete, her people are untouchable, indefensible; her self is vanished, her kingdom gone; she can feel the loss like a wound. She has lost her power, but that trust, that responsibility remains. It circles her ankles, trips her in the school hallways.

    Summary

    “You’ve heard the rumors,” Mustang says, looking at Ed over the top of his latest report, “about the angels.”

    Ed scoffs and rolls his eyes, “Angels don’t exist, don’t be ridiculous.”

    “Of course, of course,” he murmurs, gaze sliding back down, “There have been multiple eye witness accounts, however.”

    Ed slouches into the chair and doesn’t bother to keep the contempt to from his voice when he says, “Don’t depend on anything with wings to save you. Things that were made to leave always end up doing so, in the end.”

    “Yes, well,” he says, “sometimes they come back.”

    Summary

    Every time Edward sees the circle on the back Mustang's hand, he wants to scream, wants to reach across the desk and shake him, wants to wrap his hands around the older man's throat and ask if it was worth it, if this desk and his rank is worth the screaming, crying, writhing, burning bodies of his people -

    "Something to say, Fullmetal?" Mustang drawls.

    Edward snaps the file shut, "Nope."
