Work in progress. "Search for the value of that which you seek, for alchemy already knows." Alchemy knew what Edward wanted when his fingertips touched that circle, but Edward did not yet understand how value differs from price, how equivalent differs from equal. The Gate calculates with one small difference, and Trisha Elric lives - but the cost may be too high for Edward to afford.
[ Originally published on FFN 16 June 2009. A very detailed, very slow exploration of the creators' headcanon through Edward's eyes - and sometimes Roy's - with lengthy discourses on alchemical theory, juicy helpings of political intrigue, a few near-death experiences here and there, and maybe an assassination attempt or two. Explores in detail the political and social spheres of Amestris and beyond in the context of Roy's ladder-climbing, aided by Edward's presence as a researcher. You could consider this a fix-it, but it's more like a highly involved worldbuilding reboot. Long-running, takes time between updates, but chapters are 20-30k long. Be prepared to indulge and suspend your disbelief. Leave canon at the doorstep; this is something else entirely. ]
- Part 1 of Catalysis 'verse
In another life, Orochimaru never leaves Konoha, opting to remain within the village that equally reveres and reviles him. Fighting a bitter battle against forces within the village that are more influential and well-positioned, he finds himself gifted with one last shining opportunity: three children, a team of genin, handed to him because Konoha has no better choice. Orochimaru agrees to become a jounin-sensei for the first and the last time, taking into hand the next generation's Team Seven: Uchiha Sasuke, Nara Shikamaru, and Uzumaki Naruto.
[ A gradual exploration of the author's most prominent Naruto headcanon, with a good!Orochimaru (well, sorta good) who eventually becomes the Godaime Hokage. Lots of chakra theory, cool jutsu, in-depth backstories, diverging plotlines, relationship development, political intrigue, and den mother Orochimaru parenting feels! Be prepared to suspend your disbelief, for this will be another one of my long-running intense worldbuilding reboot AUs. Let's go have fun! ]
