Even asleep, Al could tell this dream was different.

Fandom/Arc: Fullmetal Alchemist, Tamashii
Characters/Pairings: Alphonse Elric, Amos, Scar
Summary: Gil does his best to make restitution and finds himself being drawn out by Al.
Meta: Drama, I-3
Wordcount: 2600

Gil had not been surprised when Alphonse mentioned nightmares. The boy had died, been hauled back by his heels and bound to a suit of armor, tramped all over the country running after the false hope of the Stone, been transmuted into the Stone, and finally sacrificed those years of love and effort to be returned to true life. Nightmares were surely to be expected. He hadn't quite expected his new houseguest to start up in the middle of the night, screaming, though.

He certainly hadn't expected it to happen every night.

Summary: Al goes to Ishvar, searching for answers.
Meta: Drama, I-3
Wordcount: 2380

Al sighed. Getting to New Ishvar had been simple. Finding the temple had been even easier; it was the tallest building in the city and by far the most finished-looking one. The next step was proving a little harder.

Fandom/Arc: Fullmetal Alchemist, Tamashii

Summary: Al visits home and tells everyone about how his studies are coming, and Rose talks sense to him.
Meta: Drama, I-3
Wordcount: 1218

Al ignored the rattle of the train wheels to scowl over his notebook, certain at the bottom of his heart that his notes weren't going to do him any good. Plenty of people wrote about the Stone, but as far as he could tell no alchemist, in four hundred years and more, had written down anything about the Gate. Given his own experiences, he supposed he couldn't blame them, but still...! And Sensei must agree that his books were a dead end, or she wouldn't have loaded him on the train for a visit home without a single book to his name except one volume of poetry he'd bought a year ago and hadn't opened since.

Roy shifted against the bed as Ed's metal fingers pressed deep into him.

Compression

Back with his teacher again, Al takes up his studies; this time, though, he already knows some things won't work. Drama, I-3.

He dreamed of the color, sometimes, nights when he woke up sweating and threw open the window just to look up at the sky and know the whole world wasn't red.

Closed Circuit

Al wakes up, restored. Not all the news is good, though. Drama with Angst, I-4.

He and Nii-san were going to have to come up with whole new equations to talk about what had happened to him and probably some new technical vocabulary too. The thought steadied him, and he smiled.

Once More...Dear Friends: Seven

Their world has changed. Drama with Romance, I-4

The first assassination attempt should probably not have come as a surprise. And, in a way, it didn't.

Another Round

Havoc teases a happy Lisa. Drama and Romance, I-2

Faint color painted her cheekbones and she gave him a mild glare. "Don't you start too. Gracia is bad enough, giving me those doting looks every time I turn around."

Counterpoint: Previous Experience

Lisa gets tired of waiting and coaxes Roy into bed. Romance with Porn, I-4

"Lisa." The whisper drew her attention from his hands to his face, and her lips parted. Roy was looking at her—at nothing but her—with a focus she'd only ever seen when he faced mortal danger. Except that, where his eyes were cold, then, they were warm now.

Research

Ross fields some odd questions from her new boss. Drama and Romance, I-2

"Ross-kun," he murmured, not seeming to notice. "What do women really want?"

Only Tactics

Hakuro reflects grimly on Mustang's influence. Drama, I-2

It was a messy idea, a jury-rigged, special-dispensation way to disorder records and assignments. It proposed to bend regulations into pretzels without ever quite breaking their letter.

It was Mustang all over.

Once More...Dear Friends: Six

Lisa and Roy reach an understanding. Romance, I-4

"I've never met another woman who's so beautiful when she isn't trying."

Counterpoint: Home Office

Lisa unveils her own new job. Drama, I-3

She really couldn't help a satisfied smile at the stunned realization spreading over Roy's face. To be perfectly honest, she didn't try all that hard.

Once More...Dear Friends: Five

Team Mustang dives into politics. Drama, I-3

Hawkeye sniffed. "It was bad enough, dealing with bureaucratic idiots as an officer," she noted. "I'm not going to deal with them as a secretary."

Once More...Dear Friends: Four

Roy stirs things up and gets a new job. Drama, I-3

Clearly, Roy was heading for another superior who could spot him coming and going. This could be good or bad.

Counterpoint: Trading

Lisa goes back to her roots. Drama, I-3

A corner of her mouth twitched as she wondered what Roy would think if he knew that she'd learned half her officer skills from her family's bank manager.

Once More...Dear Friends: Three

Roy comes to some realizations and starts to move again. Drama, I-3

Lisa had been a sweet, cheerful girl, when he'd met her. But she'd been seventeen at the time. He hadn't been surprised that she'd become more solemn, when she showed up as his new Second Lieutenant two and a half years later. People changed as they grew up.

Counterpoint: Pick Up Sticks

Lisa chooses a new direction to move in. Drama, I-3

Roy would be in motion again, soon. He probably didn't know it, yet, but she was sure of it.

Housewarming

Havoc watches and worries a bit about his friends, as he moves them in. Drama, I-2

Anyone with eyes knew Hawkeye'd had a thing for their superior officer since day one. Well, anyone with eyes who wasn't Roy Mustang, but Jean had never been sure that wasn't deliberate ignorance.
