    Summary

    "Terrible news," Ed says into the mattress. He feels Al sit up straighter.

    "What, what happened?"

    "I still don't know if I had a crush on Ling at sixteen, but I think I got a crush on him now," Ed whines. Al laughs in delight and pats his shoulder sympathetically. "Al, it was horrible. He asked me about, you know, my life and I was like Uhhh and he was like Sounds like you do absolutely no introspection, idiot. Also you need to obsess over things to live. Absolutely unbelievable."

    "Wow," Al says. "Did he really say that? That's a little harsh."

    "No," Ed admits. "He said it sounded like I hadn't figured out how to want things for myself and that it was okay to do that. Well, he did basically say the thing about obsessing over stuff. And here I am!!"

    "Wow," Al says again.

    "I know," Ed says. "Devastating."

    --

    Seven years after the Promised Day, Ed finally gets around to visiting Emperor Yao.

    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

    The war in Ishval is beginning to wind down. The State Alchemists sent in by Fuhrer King Bradley have done their job well. The Flame Alchemist has amassed a reputation of the bringer of death and destruction- surpassing even Solf Kimblee in pure destructive capabilities. In a few more months, the war will be declared won, and the soldiers sent home.
    Alone on the outskirts of a deserted battlefield, Roy Mustang is caught in an explosion that would have been lethal if not for two things: the Flame Alchemist's quick reflexes, and a couple of doctors named Rockbell.
    Hiding from the military, he returns with them to Resembool, where he meets two young boys and their mother; good friends of the Rockbells and new family for the disgraced alchemist. But the military isn't done with him yet, and the homunculi still need their sacrifices.

    Or... Roy gets injured and ends up in the Elric household while Ed and Al are still young. The combination is rather explosive.

    Summary

    There was only one thing Ed needed to do: find a way to get Al's body back. He wasn't going to worry about cheerful soulmates, narcissistic colonels, or violent Xingese assassins, but life had a funny way of fucking with his plans. Ed was sure it was Ling's fault in every possible way. Plot-heavy Edling AU.
