    Summary

    The fury Ed had felt only moments before left him, and an all too familiar feeling took its place. Loss. A heavy sorrow he hadn’t felt since losing their mother hit him all at once. He couldn’t deny what Ross had said anymore, not when Hughes was staring at him like that. The man’s usually bright green eyes looked almost empty.

    “It’s true, isn’t it?” Ed asked, and to his surprise, his voice came out steady. “Mustang’s dead.”

    Hughes drew in a long breath, and turned his blank stare to the floor. “Yes.”

     

    Or the one where Edward finally finds out what happened to Roy. And he doesn't take it very well.

    Summary

    Ed had thought, after the whole Promised Day, homunculus, entire country harvested for alchemical batteries thing, the batshit quotient of his life would have settled down some. He really ought to have topped out the meter with that one. But no. The bullshit is just getting started.

    “Are you fucking kidding me,” Ed demands. “The wizards?”

    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.

     

    Or: If three children are born just a bit earlier, a few towns are burned down, and Hohenhiem never shows up

    Summary

    Roy turned slowly, still keeping one hand clutching the receiver as the operator— who seemed less than aware of his dire situation —informed him that the call would be connected shortly.

    “Hang up the phone, sir,” said a familiar, frustrated voice from behind him. “I knew you used this phone booth to talk to your dates, but it's getting a tad ridiculous.”

    He recognized the voice after a moment as belonging to Second Lieutenant Maria Ross, and for a moment he was relieved— until he actually saw her.

    “You're not Maria Ross,” he observed bluntly, and he didn't miss the shadow that passed over the imposter's face. “Maria Ross has a mole under her left eye. And she wouldn't be stupid enough to point a gun at me. Unfortunately for you, you are.”

     

    Or the one where Maes Hughes does not die in a phone booth. Someone else does.

    Summary

    When Ed passes through the Gate, he comes out the other side with more than just knowledge. 

    "Whenever I hear old chronicles of love, its age-old pain,
    Its ancient tale of being apart or together.
    As I stare on and on into the past, in the end you emerge,
    Clad in the light of a pole-star piercing the darkness of time:
    You become an image of what is remembered forever."

    "Okay well…don't be alarmed… but I may or may not have just been shot," Edward chided, his eyes half closed as he leaned heavily against the desk for support, his hand clenching the black undergarments tightly.

    Summary

    He stiffened as a loud crack split the air. Gunshots. Shit. Recalling his own near-death experience involving a bullet wound to the shoulder, Maes slipped one of his throwing knives into his hand. Gracia would have his head if she knew he was walking into danger, but he was never one to sit by if there was something he could do to save a life.

    "I know a fraud when I see one, especially when you're trying to be someone I've known for years. Now, who are you and what have you done to the Lieutenant?" Male, early thirties, injured.

    His eyes narrowed, Maes would recognize that voice anywhere. Roy, his brother in all but blood, was here and at risk. And Maes didn't need to hear the response to know who Roy was facing. The one they called Envy.

    Summary

    Edward Elric is a Xerxesian omega prince, bound to serve his nation. He and his brother, alpha prince Alphonse, are sent to form a new treaty with one of the Omega princesses of Xing. While Alphonse is required to choose from Xingese Omegan royals as his future spouse, and news of sabotage is spread all around both countries, crown prince Ling Yao is ordered to direct the attention elsewhere.

    “Here is the plan,” he smirks, keeping a good distance away from the angry omega “You and I shall pretend we will mate for the treaty,”

    “Why?!” Edward barks, his small fangs bared in an attempt to appear threatening, but the alpha can only smile wider at the enticing view.

    “Because only then your little brother can choose his future mate without worrying,” Ling argues, carelessly relaxing against the wall. “Besides, I am going on a quest for the Philosopher’s Stone in a few days, and considering who you are, and how you are, I thought you might wanna join me,”

    Edward huffed in annoyance, “That could be dangerous for our nations,” he replied.

    “Oh! I'm not looking for the stone here,” Ling pushed himself off the wall, raising his hands when Edward growled in warning. “There are rumors, about Amestris...”

    Summary

    Roy Mustang is an assassin who leads a team of thieves in conning and crushing corrupt corporations. He prides himself on being able to plan for any contingency, to have a con for every situation, a kill for every plot-gone-wrong. With his crew of thieves and grifters by his side, he evens the odds between the corrupt and the innocent, the gray between the black-and-white of this endless game of chess, and after five years in the game, he's sure he's seen pretty much everything.

    What he didn’t see coming, however, was the phone call from a six-year-old begging him to kill his uncle and save his brother.

    Or:

    Roy Mustang, thief and assassin extraordinaire, accidentally-on-purpose adopts two kids. It goes as well as can be expected.

    Summary

    “Xerxes is gone.”
    The servant who’d rushed in from the door placed a hand upon the floor, leaning forwards onto it, heaving.
    From her seat beside the throne, Daitan of Xing stood, glaring down with fear more than anger, her impenetrable facade of unwavering strength broken, unable to comprehend such an impossible truth.
    “What?” she breathed, her mind whirling at the outrage of the mere prospect of the statement. Disbelief drew her face tight, paling her skin.
    “Xerxes… the people of Xerxes are gone,” the servant slowly repeated. He raised his face to look up towards her, devastated. “Every last one of them.”

    On a digging mission assigned by Olivier Mira Armstrong, a few members of the Briggs crew dig up a mineral statue of some kid. Only, they've woken him up, and he's not a statue after all, but claiming to be the Crown Prince of the ancient, fallen Kingdom Xerxes.

    ... It doesn't go that smoothly, but.
