    Summary

    “You really don’t know, do you?”

    He’d stepped in front of a bullet, and just like him, a silver chained pocket watch was the only reason Ed was still alive.

    “No, I really don’t know why you would use yourself as a human fucking shield and almost get yourself killed for me, Fullmetal.”

    Summary

    "You're burning you know," they tell him in a drawl.

    Edward stares at them in confusion even though he knows what they mean now.

    (He wishes he didn't; Edward wishes for a lot of things but they never happen.)

    "I'm not burning," he lies because that is how the memory goes.

    They stop leaning over the crib so they can walk towards him. They held Edward's face with both of their hands as though they loved him. (They didn't.) "Oh you're not literally burning like your red eyed siblings but you are burning just like I did. And one day you'll realize it."

    They grin down at him then with all their white teeth. They aren't envious of him for the first time in their life.

    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."

    Summary

    Edward and Alphonse are beings made under the sun and meant for the sand- of an Ishvalan mother, to worship Ishvala. It's never so easy.

    Not when Alphonse bears his mother's eyes, and then he doesn't.
    Not when Edward has nothing left to give but his name.

    (Brotherhood, retold.)

    Summary

    Edward smiled thinly, something viscous but not ugly (never ugly, not when it came to her) was the look in his feral eyes.

    "Rose," gently, Ed thought, like she was Al or Winry when they were doing stupid shit, "that was a list that represented the complete chemical makeup of a human body for the average adult. It had been calculated to the last microgram, but still there has never been one reported case of successfully creating a human life."

    Some people put their faith in gods to be able to live their life; some, like him, lived their life to achieve a goal. There had once been a time when Ed use to pray with mom. He had even prayed after mom had died but had stopped a long time ago.

    It wasn't the constant frustration of loose ends (till now, Edward thought, Cornello's ring on his mind). No, he had stop praying even before that. It wasn't even the bastard's sharp jabs that were constant; always there as though Edward would ever let himself forget. What an idiot; how'd that man ever become a Colonel? Besides obviously burning children and women to death that corpses he climbed on to get to the top of the military.

    Summary

    "He recruited an Ishvalan child to become a human weapon - the weapons that slaughtered Edward's people - when the kid had yet to go through automail surgery for his amputated leg that he lost during the genocide that - that the bastard committed. You know that's how historians believe Edward met his wife. The doctors that treated Ishvalans during the genocide were Rockbells. Anyway - I'm sorry hot or not that's not someone I wouldn't want you to date even if we weren't dating Elissa!"

    "Okay, okay. Keep going and your going to make my underwear wet, Alex," Elissa joked. "You know how much I love it when you get protective of me. Anyway is it really Roy's fault? I'm sorry but if Roy recruited an Ishvalan to join the State Alchemist program than isn't that on Fullmetal? I mean he was the one to willingly join the army that slaughtered his people. Tell me that's not more f@cked up than Roy recruiting a kid?"

    Summary

    "I'm not an object you asshole," Edward reminds Greed with a snarl.

    "And what are you going to do? Go back to military - be the bitch under Mustang's every smug command?"

    "Greed you sure as shit don't get to talk about being smug."

    "True," Greed concedes and Edward waits for the but. There's always a but with Greed. "but unlike him I never burnt your people alive. The former me only kidnapped your brother."

    Finger smoothly stroke his hair and all Edward thinks that is how one would stroke a fancy, soft rug.

    He feels sick.

    Summary

    "Are you atheist Rockbell?" The man asks like one would talk about the weather as Edward's spear still presses into his lightly bleeding throat. There's something in his eye. What it is though Edward can't put a name to it.

    Then suddenly the spear breaks in his hands. Edward's golden eyes are wide in disbelief as the piece of the spear he isn't holding clatters to the floor. It's the only noise in the room.

    It's wrong (and he was right).

    He hadn't even seen the man active an array or pull out that sword he carries. Edward suddenly feels his age. He feels more like a dumb kid than when Fuhrer had laughed at him.

    Summary

    Ed lives a peaceful life in Central, or as peaceful as you can get when when your new neighbor turns out to be the infamous Flame Alchemist. Or a version of the Flame Alchemist, as it’s really hard to connect the broken man on his porch with the monster that helped burn Ed’s city to the ground.

    Summary

    The motion not comforting to Edward as he thought back on how many times him and Al had to sleep over at the Rockbells when ever some stranger came into town when their mom had been alive.

    How they couldn't mention they had a mom. How their mom had to hide - to be trapped like she was animal instead of a person - in the attic of the Rockbells' just because someone might murder her for her red eyes (or call the military in which would have the same effect). And no one would be against it; no one would be held accountable for murder. Murder was still murder no matter what skin or eyes they had just like people were still people no matter their features. Murder was sick and stupid. (Something Ed, despite having joined the military, never wished to do. To become.)

    Just like racism was beyond stupid.

    Summary

    Ed had another name, one that he did not speak and he did not tell.

     

     

    “Eliraz,” Tchiya said, holding him against her chest and on her leg, one brown arm around his waist. “This night, will you tell your brother one of my stories with me?”
    Ed squirmed in her grasp, a foolish child who hadn’t yet realized what he still had. “Which one?” he asked.

    Summary

    He has thrown away his name and, with it, any right he ever had to be heard by Ishvalla, but when he stumbles across the Elric brothers, Ishvalan and utterly clueless about their culture, it certainly seems like a sign.

    The trick is going to be convincing them that they want to be taught.

    Summary

    Looking at them together, you'd see the differences as much as the similarities. Ed's skin was a lighter tan and his eyes gleamed gold. Al's skin was darker, his eyes a bright crimson. But their hair shared the same sandy blond shade, as pale as the desert in which they were born.

    Ed and Al didn’t always live in Resembool. And their last name wasn’t always Elric.
