    Summary

    It’s not so much the strange children falling from the sky that are worrying Harry. It’s more that the children don’t seem to think the situation is all that weird.

    “No matter where I go,” Ed said thoughtfully, “there’s a goddamn pyromaniac there waiting for me.”

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Marcone refused to be on-site when blowing up his own building, so instead he sent Gard and Harry and Ed and a handful of interchangeable, vaguely bovine thugs. The disposable ones, presumably. Well, except for Gard, who was the next best thing to unkillable.

    “Please don’t have casual sex,” Hohenheim says. “Your mother would roll over in her grave, and I would have an aneurysm up here. When—when you’re of the legal age—then I suppose—if you’re safe and cautious—”

    “I can’t believe you actually went for it,” Edward says. “I owe Al a hell of a lot of money.”

    Bookmarker's Notes

    "The red represents my burning passion for you." Bucky still sounds like an automaton.

    The urge to laugh is snuffed out by rising panic. "Thanks, Buck," Steve says, strangled.

    Bucky sits down across the table from him. For a second, they just stare at each other over the trembling mass of jelly.

    "Well?" says Bucky. His expression is totally vacant. It's the face he wears when he wants Steve to question every aspect of his reality.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    She was trying to do a good thing for Riza, dammit. She’d been worried when the whole Roy thing blew up spectacularly, she’d been nervous about Riza’s apparent plan to become a crazy dog lady with guns, and look! She’d done something about it! Okay, admittedly, that something had been to seize the nearest stalker off the roof and chuck him toward Riza, but the intention had been pure!

    Summary

    A rogue alchemist, desperate to restore the alchemy of the famous Fullmetal Alchemist, pushes Truth into playing a new game - one that has Edward Elric waking up on the floor of his house where a transmuted abomination should have been, just in time to save his younger self and brother. He might have a chance to do everything again, now, though...He would never hold anything but bitterness for the title of 'dad,' but maybe an older brother could make things better.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    “No circle,” Mustang breathed. “How do you..?”

    Theo’s lips quirked in a slight wry smile. “Souvenir from when God only strongly disliked me.” He reached up, trapping his shoulder. “I’ve been the subject of a human transmutation before. The rebound wasn’t worth it, but I have a lot of unique insight into alchemy because of it.”
