Metal to Metal
In the chaos just before the promised day, the tension between Edward and Winry builds up even higher. EdWin! (and all semi-canon couples somewhere in the perimeter of the story)
- Part 1 of Metal to Metal
Ed and Winry had some bumps along the ride growing close. Their first and quite clumsy confessions (...mostly for Ed's part, see M2M1) was made under the shadow of the promised day. Both were stressed up and fearing for their and other lives. Things happened, they kissed and Winry wanted even more before he left, maybe to be never seen again. But Ed was unprepared and overloaded with feelings of shyness, guilt, and doubts. He didn't want to hurt her but was doing that anyway, whatever he chose to do, because he didn't know himself if he was coming back.
Then the miracle happened: Al was flesh and blood again and on the way they happened to save the world (or was it the other way around ^_^) The brothers both ended their quest that had taken all the years of their puberty. Now they had to go on with their lives and find out what they wanted to do. For Al, that was not a problem, he already had plenty of things on his mind and enjoying every minute. For Ed on the contrary, it was unsettling because he lost his purpose and could not take decisions; the first time in his life that he had no real goal any more.
