    Summary

    Moving on, he’s discovered over the years, is more than a little difficult when the person you’re supposed to be moving on from is the very same who introduced all the colours in the world to your life.

    Summary

    Ed’s back in Amestris after a very long vacation. It seems a little different from how he left it, and he’s really not sure how he feels about all these changes. The Amestris he knew used to be a center of learning and prosperity and innovation. Now? Censorship, food shortages, and a military government causing more problems than it solves. It definitely isn’t the homecoming Ed envisioned.

    Actually, he knows exactly how he feels about the changes: they fucking suck.

    Roy Mustang, State Alchemist, seems to be the only one in the government who’s trying to change things. His interest in Ed’s unusual alchemical abilities has Ed wondering if he and Roy might be able to fix what’s rotten in Amestris. He'll never join the State Alchemy program to do it, because Ed’s sworn never getting involved in politics again. He’s done leaving swathes of bloodstained sand in his wake.

    Still, Roy and Amestris's plight draws Ed in. When things go from bad to worse, placing Roy within range of the firing squad, Ed has to wonder if sometimes, promises aren’t meant to be kept.

    Summary

    “I thought it would be worth it to give it up, but it's not,” Roy whispered. “Nothing is worth this.” He needed one flickering moment of hope in which he believed he wasn't a sad, desperate old man who had put his life on hold for a career that meant less to him every day, only to learn that he had run out of life to live.

    “What are you talking about?” Ed breathed. “What did you give up?”

    You, Roy wanted to say, or something like you.

    Summary

    A/N: Set a few years after CoS, with Roy and Edward sleeping together and unknowingly breaking each other's hearts in the process.

    Summary:

    A half hour later, and Edward is passed out sound asleep in Roy's bed.

    He's wearing one of Roy's housecoats, and he's curled up in a ball with his head on Roy's pillow.

    Roy stares at him for a moment before he turns and walks out of the room.

    Brandy. Brandy, and paperwork. Right now, he can't deal with the man curled up asleep in his bed.
