    Summary

    In the land of Ingary, where such things as seven-league boots and cloaks of invisibility really exist, it is quite a misfortune to be born the eldest of three. Everyone knows you are the one who will fail first, and worst, if the three of you set out to seek your fortunes.

    Howl, of course, had been born the younger of two. That held no real significance, other than that he always felt like he had a shadow looming over him.

    Summary

    Inheriting Mama’s way of life had always been about dedicating her life to alchemy, in the form of a silver pocket watch. It wasn’t supposed to include fighting immortal beings, and especially not in the form of an awkward Ishvalan boy.

    Following his savior’s guidance had led him to the remnants of a dead city, in hiding. It wasn’t supposed to include joining forces with the military, and especially not in the form of a strangely too familiar green-eyed girl. [Fullmetal Alchemist AU]

    Summary

    "I'm not the only one who thinks this is weird, right? I mean, when we first met him, Edward Elric was a little kid in a wheelchair, missing an arm and a leg, and now he's managed to get his arm back, he's of legal drinking age, and he's getting married."

    It is kind of weird, Riza agrees, although it really shouldn't be. After all, settling down and getting married is what men Edward's age usually do. And yet it feels so incongruous for Edward Elric, who saw the Gate three times, punched a god in the face, and was one of the brightest alchemists Riza had ever met, to be doing something so normal. It would be like the Brigadier General getting married, or her. She has to suppress a giggle at the thought.

    Summary

    When Ed did his last transmutation, he never told anyone the price he paid in the end. Not Al, Winry, Roy, Riza or anybody else. Of course, Truth doesn't like it when his favourite human lies for something he should be proud of. So, he decides to fix that by showing everyone what really happened that day.

    Summary

    General Roy Mustang—charming, intelligent, heroic—is predicted to be the next Fuhrer of Amestris. But a series of acts of terrorism drive the General into a ruthless race against a magnetic opponent. Mustang and his team scramble to salvage a campaign in the face of rising nationalism, scandal, and international tension. If they succeed, they can save an infant democracy from collapse. Mustang must consider what and whom he is willing to sacrifice, and he must ask himself the most difficult question of his life: can one be a good politician and a good man?
