    Summary

    The door opens. Alec tenses, and his body throbs.
     
    A man steps through, and Alec curls his fingers into his palms, terror pulsing through him. Because the man isn't a man. He's a warlock. A demon. The same person he felt crouching over him when he fell.

    Why is he here? What has the warlock done to him?

    "Well well, little angel. You're awake."

    ***

    Alec has been told the same stories all his life. He's been taught the same lines, over and over again. Downworlders are reckless, impulsive, demonic. They're not to be trusted.

    And Magnus Bane is the epitome of everything evil about Downworlders.

    At least, that's what people keep telling him. Alec's not quite so sure anymore.

    Or: In which the Nephilim have wings, are taught to loathe Downworlders, and Alec is presented with a conundrum when Magnus Bane saves his life.

    Summary

    (His father ruffles his hair, pretends to tug a little at his wrist. “I’ll tell you more about the red string when you’re older, okay? Just know that it’s connected to someone who will be very, very important to you.”

    Minghao says a quiet “thanks” before walking out of the kitchen and into the living room. His parents are never wrong; at least, this is what he believes at this age. But when he looks down, he knows his father can’t possibly be right. There’s no red string.

    Instead, what he has is a thick band of white maybe two or three feet long, the side of it a little unnatural, like it’s been cut or ripped. A scrap of fabric with a diamond edge. It flutters when he walks, trails after him, tethered to nothing and leading off to empty space.)

    [In a world where everyone has a soulmate, Minghao is the odd one out. It’s not like it matters, though, not when he’s got an enigma around his wrist, a crazy set of friends, and dreams of a purple-haired spirit that Minghao feels like he knows despite the fact Minghao’s never even seen him before.]

    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

    Edward Elric (the second) has always had to balance the two sides of his life; on one proper flesh and blood hand, he's a genius working as a crime scene investigator, putting his younger brother through university. On the other not-actually-flesh-and-blood hand, he's also the red-hooded vigilante Fullmetal, protecting Central City from criminals and assholes like 'the Dragon'. But mutilated bodies have stared showing up, and now he has to deal with his estranged sorta-maybe-ex-boyfriend (who's in charge of hunting down Ed's alternate persona), keeping the public from various levels of hysteria, and stopping a mysterious group who seem to be echoing the one his mother used to belong to...

    Summary

    When Roy Mustang went to retrieve his eyesight from Truth, he wasn’t expecting to end up doing a job in exchange. It couldn’t even be an easy job, of course, because Edward’s assessment of Truth was a pretty accurate one.
