    Summary

    Dairut is a crossroads. A settlement on the border of Amestris and the Great Desert, a hub of Ishvalan and Xerxian history, it is a place caught between past regret and future hope.

    In Central City, Roy Mustang and Riza Hawkeye prepare to return to Ishval for the first time. In Resembool, Edward Elric navigates the complicated minutia of his personal life, but remains unable to shake the feeling that his work in Amestris is not yet finished. In Dairut, Miles and the new Muhaddith break ground on Al’Arshif, the sacred Archive, in the hope of restoring a sense of continuity to their long-suffering people.

    Then archeologist Winnie Stoke uncovers an ancient relic in the desert. Then a mysterious cult called the Risen strip Captain Hawkeye from the Flame Alchemist’s side. Then something monstrous begins to stir in the mind of Selim Bradley. Five years after the Promised Day, Ed, Roy, and Miles must face an evil of apocalyptic scale, before it destroys everything they’ve worked for, and everyone they hold dear.

    Dairut is a crossroads. But Dairut is also the end of the line. Things are changing in Amestris, and not everyone will survive.

    Summary

    It wasn't only the horror of war that left Roy traumatized and suicidal. War was one horror in itself- ugly, bloody and painful.
    Dealing with that was already an ordeal, but then, a man who should have been supportive, should have been trustworthy turns into a nightmare, and Roy is trapped between his loyalty to the military and his survival instincts.

    Summary

    A re-enlisting Ishvalan turns out to be far more than what he seems on the surface.

    This story ties in directly to Capn_hoozits Sons of the Desert series. She has graciously allowed me to write in her fantastic Ishvalan world!

    Summary

    May, 1914.

    The general in charge of West Command is found dead in his bedroom just days after returning from a six-month-long audit of his questionable command decisions. The Silver Alchemist's body is found in the Rheos River, the fifth victim of a serial killer targeting State Alchemists. Roy Mustang introduces the Elric Brothers to an ex-State Alchemist who refused to participate in the Ishvalan Extermination.

    These three events are not exactly unrelated.

    Or: in which there's a lot of espionage, Amestrian perceptions of Ishvalans are proven wrong more often than not, and history is surprisingly relevant when dismantling a government conspiracy centuries in the making.

    Summary

    A 15-year-old Drachman boy learns a shocking secret about himself and must seek asylum in Amestris. While Major General Armstrong decides what to do with him, she sends him to the safest place she can think of outside of Briggs.

    Nenya chuckled and reached out to pat Mitya on the cheek. "You look so healthy! So much better than when I first laid eyes on you, poor chick!" She looked down at Zulema and switched to Ishvalan, not out of discourtesy or to confuse the boy, but it came more naturally when talking to someone like Zulema. "White as milk he was, and shaking like a leaf! Now look at him! He's grown two - - no, three inches, I'm sure of it!"

    Zulema nodded. She had heard the story a number of times, but these things deserved repeating. "He's flourishing here, truly. The khorovar and his wife have taken good care of him."

    "Ah, well, the khorovar would take up every nestling that fell at his feet," Nenya said with a slight roll of her eyes. "Ishvala gave each of us a certain breadth to our hands and the sense to know when our hands overflow." She gave a little sniff. "Not that one."

    Summary

    His gaze makes its way up her face before stopping at her eyes. Eyes that were usually warm with melting chocolate now bear no resemblance to the girl he once knew. All the light is gone.

    Dammit, he thinks, She has the eyes of a killer too.
     
    Or, my take on what happened after Roy and Riza met back up during the Ishvalen War

    Summary

    Avete fatto ammenda, gli aveva detto una volta un militare di carriera dal fare paternalistico. Lui aveva annuito e poi, girate le spalle, aveva sorriso.
    (Fare ammenda. Emendare. Privare delle impurità. Curiosa associazione: ricorda di approfondire).

    - Perché ridete, maggiore?
    - Etimologie, signore. Niente di importante.
    - Vi dilettate di linguistica?
    - Perché no, colonnello? Perché no?

    Summary

    Imagine for a minute how the story of FMA and Brotherhood would be different if Ed & Al were Ishvalan. Why would they study alchemy if that were the case? What reason would they have for joining the military if they had watched people die at their hands? Why would they be known as, The Ishvalan Alchemists? M for language, themes, and violence. R&R

    Summary

    When Roy remembers something that he wishes he could forget, he realises that the status quo may be too much for him to handle alone.

    Summary

    A couple interconnected drabbles revolving around Riza's perceptions of herself, Roy's perceptions of her, and migrating into a story about Riza falling ill on a long mission. Kind of a one-shot, as I won't be writing any other chapters.

    Summary

    Woman in the front lines, on the ground, the one who only does what is told and never makes her own decisions -- for all the decorations and ranks, Riza was nothing but a pawn. But for the first time in almost a year, she acted on her own. She dragged her commanding officer away from the battlefield even after she was given the order to escape, leaving him for dead. His matted raven hair was sticking to her cheek and his mouth was close enough to her ear that she could hear his laboured breathing. His chest swelled and collapsed inward almost violently against her, which made her tighten her grip around his waist.
