    Summary

    Maybe Roy Mustang and Riza Hawkeye were tied together from the very beginning. Maybe they were always destined to be in each other's lives, for good or bad. Maybe they never had a chance. One thing's for sure: neither of them would change it for the world. (A take on the 100 Themes Challenge.)

    Summary

    The Promised Day did not end as anyone had expected: Al's seal broke; Ed defeated Father but at a cost. With what strength there was left, Ed performed the ultimate sacrifice for Al.

    Who knew that meant getting thrown onto Earth in 1943?

    Nazis?
    Hydra?
    A super soldier?

    The Gate has a sick sense of humour...

    Summary

    Work in progress. "Search for the value of that which you seek, for alchemy already knows." Alchemy knew what Edward wanted when his fingertips touched that circle, but Edward did not yet understand how value differs from price, how equivalent differs from equal. The Gate calculates with one small difference, and Trisha Elric lives - but the cost may be too high for Edward to afford.

    [ Originally published on FFN 16 June 2009. A very detailed, very slow exploration of the creators' headcanon through Edward's eyes - and sometimes Roy's - with lengthy discourses on alchemical theory, juicy helpings of political intrigue, a few near-death experiences here and there, and maybe an assassination attempt or two. Explores in detail the political and social spheres of Amestris and beyond in the context of Roy's ladder-climbing, aided by Edward's presence as a researcher. You could consider this a fix-it, but it's more like a highly involved worldbuilding reboot. Long-running, takes time between updates, but chapters are 20-30k long. Be prepared to indulge and suspend your disbelief. Leave canon at the doorstep; this is something else entirely. ]
