    Summary

    "Edward cautiously shifted the old newspaper to get a better look at the article. It was actually illustrated—a hand sketch that had been converted to lithograph, then printed—
    Oh, Truth.
    His own face—cold, lean, blank—stared back at him from the crumbling, brown paper."

    Assigned a paper about the annexation of the Eastern Sector, Edward Brosh finds an old poetry book with "The Central Times," a list of dates and page numbers, and "The truth is seldom glimpsed on the surface" written on the last page. With corruption in the military, censorship, and strange dreams that just might be memories closing in, Edward is about to face a side of Amestris history has forgotten.

    Summary

    Perfect beings had no gender. They were God’s image, the embodiment of the Truth. This was a belief of the alchemists and, therefore, a belief of the people of Xerxes. The desert society was built on the values of alchemy, and their most central value was that of equivalent exchange.

    This is what Ling was taught in his culture lessons. Well, “taught” is a loose word- more like he learned it by reading the encyclopedia volumes that Fu gruffly tossed his way every day. As a prince of Xing, he had to know as much as he possibly could about the countries that he would be dealing with when he became emperor- presuming, of course, that the twelfth in line for the throne would (could) ever secure the throne.

    Ling could. He had a plan.

    Xerxes had alchemy. Alchemy had- according to those books- Philosopher’s Stones. Philosopher’s Stones gave eternal life. Ling’s ailing father, the emperor of Xing, wanted life, more desperately than anything. And Ling? He wanted the throne.

    Ling needed a Philosopher’s Stone. So, Ling needed Xerxes.

    Simple.

    Of course, nothing ever turns out quite that simply, does it?

    Summary

    Summary

    Ed's back from visiting his family (what little he has left that is) and everyone at the office is acting odd. His boss is hounding him for research that he has but doesn't want to give, and what is up with the ice queen from north?

     

    Yes, it's back. If you haven't read "Hanging on the Telephone" I suggest you do for this to make any sense. Much love <3)

    Summary

    Trisha Elric was Ishvalan; her sons are born with red eyes and brown skin. This does not make their lives as State Alchemists any easier. An Ishvalan in the military is a walking paradox - tragic or traitorous, depending on your point of view. Edward avoids the uniform as much as possible for that exact reason, but it doesn't make much of a difference. He has gotten used to the way people stare in the same way he is used to his automail: it's there and there's nothing he can do about it, and because the discomfort is constant he can sometimes forget about it. That doesn’t mean he isn’t bothered.

    Summary

    Edward thinks he might’ve been holy once, in between his father’s and mother’s arms. Thinks he might’ve been holy helping his brother fly above the clouds.

    He thinks he might’ve been holy, before he reached for the sun. Thinks he might’ve holy before he sold his body mind and soul. Before he ignored all of his brother’s worries, his hesitations.

    He might’ve been holy once. Now all he is, is pyrite placed on a pedestal.

    Summary

    Edward is Icarus, Winry knows, is the boy with wax wings who never heeded others warnings. He flew too close to the sea and salt clogged his feathers. He flew too low and crashed into the icy, unforgiving waves.

    He’s Icarus, yes, but he’s survived. Her brother is strong.

    They all survived. A fire brought them down but it also is their new beginning.

    He is Icarus, he fell, but he got up, spit the blood out of his mouth, and kept going.

    One foot after another.

    They heal.

    Summary

    Edward and Alphonse, that’s what the neighbors would call them. Inside the safety of their house, they were Edan and Anand. The two boys were often told that they were blessed because they took after their father more. They didn’t need to hide when the army checked their house.

    They had skin that was light enough to say it was a tan but dark enough for other Ishvalans to know they were kin. Their eyes as gold as the desert sand, their hair to just pass as a light blond.

    Summary

    Roy shakes his head in sympathy. “I should go,” he says, and then doesn’t move.

    Ed laughs. “I don’t really want you to, but you should. It’s probably a bad idea for you to come home with me.”

    “Tempting, though,” Roy muses, unbuckling his seatbelt.

    You’re tempting,” Ed teases back.

    “I’m attempting to leave this vehicle, is all I’m doing,” Roy sniffs, pouting exaggeratedly.

    Resembool is such a small village between the border of Amestris and Ishbal, that growing up between cultures, between worlds isn't so much of a challenge until it is. Growing up is never easy, after all. Here's a little bit about what it's like.

    Mostly train of thought.
