    Summary

    (A re-write of "A Canticle for Things Forgotten")

    1908 • Ishval

    An uneasy ceasefire grips the ruins of Ishval, but near the medical station at Daliha, Amestrian soldiers are dying. Desperate to avoid unnecessary bloodshed, the 27th Infantry Division sends Riza Hawkeye and Solf J. Kimblee to smoke the assassin out.

    But Roy Mustang suspects Kimblee's aim isn't the death of one rogue Ishvalan.

    For Hawkeye has a secret, one the Crimson Alchemist hungers for... a power forged in fire.

    This is one of the two great labyrinths into which human minds are drawn: the question of duty versus predestination...

     

    There is an old story... perhaps you've heard of it. A man falls asleep and loses his way on the journey through life. He encounters a poet and the two begin a series of travels through Hell where they witness the many punishments for those who disobeyed God during their lives.

    Summary

    Found amongst the personal effects of H.R.B. Born: 30 January 1885, Regiment: 8th Eastern; Brigadier General Grumman Light Infantry, Regiment number: O-2801097, Rank: Second Lieutenant

     

    Officer Cadet Jean Havoc didn't catch the bulk of the fighting during the Uprising. Commissioned after the official surrender, Havoc spent the long, hot days recovering Amestrian effects and Amestrian bodies, picking through the desert devastation in search of the dead and dying.

    But when twelve Amestrian generals are slaughtered by a state alchemist, and Havoc is conscripted to a crack team tasked with catching the murderer, Jean will discover that not all wars are fought between nations.

    Some are fought between comrades.

    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.

    "Did you know?" Mitya could have sounded accusing, but he didn't. He didn't even seem to be cherishing some resentment hidden somewhere in the back of his mind. He just looked at her, and for a moment it felt like he looked right through her, as though he could see all her insecurities, all her hopes, all her ambitions. The impression disappeared immediately, but the boy's green-eyed gaze was still penetrating. He'd looked death in the face and he'd had his first kill and he hadn't enjoyed either one. It tended to change a person.

    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 Stokes 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

    Scar tries to rebuild his life while haunted by his past. Kimblee could care less about his past, but it comes back to haunt him anyway.

    "But…" One thing that Solf Sr. had drilled into his son from an early age was to never ever do something for nothing, and anyone who offered to do something for you for nothing was just itching to screw you over. "What do you get out of it?""

    Neshed chuckled quietly. Mrs. Neshed sighed. "It is a grace," she explained, which meant little to nothing to Solf. The woman pressed her crossed hands over her bosom. "It is a gift, given freely from the heart."

    Solf's eyes narrowed just a little. "You mean, it's a religious thing?"

    Mrs. Neshed smiled at him like he was just a little stupid. "Yes, my dear. It's a religious thing."

    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

    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

    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.

    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?
