Victory is short-lived. He knows several people who would have something to say about the phrasing of that if he’d been dumb enough to utter it aloud. )

If Ed believed in anything, there would be some prayers of gratitude.  Possibly tears.  Although that could be the fat fucking bruise starting to form on his kneecap talking. )

Author's Note: This is the chapter where all the bad shit happens. Part of why it's long is because I tried to include a little of the stuff-getting-better part… and then I swear to you, on all that is fluffy and/or holy, that it gets a lot better still after this. ♥

On Thursday night, Al’s sitting on the floor in front of their coffee table at home working on a love letter to Winry. )

Word Count: 47,200 (7,300 this part)

Summary: Ed makes the mistake of waiting on goddamn tenterhooks for something to change – and then, naturally, something does.
Author's Note: This is part of the demi!Ed series, set after Kindling! Also, LONG NOTE:Abandon hope of impartiality ye who enter here: this fic is a particularly poignant example of my habit of writing to myself, about myself, to a certain extent. I'm not sure if I should call it "bad", as far as the habit goes, because it often seems to resonate with people… And so much of the point of writing, of fanfic, of all of fandom for me is to be out here saying I know you think you're fucked up – and maybe you are, but you're a long way yet from broken, and you're definitely not alone.

Elaborating on the warnings above: particularly in the later chapters, there's a lot of material about depression in this fic (including a bit more suicidal ideation and a variety of somewhat disturbing intrusive thoughts); emetophobic parties should proceed with caution; and there's some very non-consensual physical contact. I didn't warn for that in so many words because I feel like it would implicate Roy because of the pairing, but that isn't the case. And that would make a big difference to me as a reader, so I figured it might change things for a lot of you as well!

As far as the song goes, the album came out back when I still had the energy to do the RP blog thing, and something about the tone of this song really captured the essence of demi!Ed for me – the resignation and the sadness and the emptiness and the loneliness all tangled up together in with an old determination.



P.S. Con fever update: I'm going to be at SacAnime on Saturday the 3rd, and then at YaoiCon the 16th through the 18th!

Prompt: "soulmarks on the wrist/arm that Ed lost" for Roy/Ed Week
Summary: Ed's mark is long, long gone, but it's not like he has time to care.
Author's Note: As an apology for how dark this chapter starts and how poorly I edited it, I'm going to tell you a secret: I wrote pierogi into this chapter because I wanted them at the time, and then, completely unbeknownst to me, Mr. Tierfal's mom mailed us some for our six-month anniversary. Use this power wisely.

It’s a dark room—is it even a room? )

Author's Note: The good news is that I finally actually finished this thing. The bad news is that I think a number of you are going to be disappointed with the direction of it given the things you've very kindly mentioned that you were looking forward to in the comments… Sorry! ;__; Also, bit of a blood/gore CW for this chapter (nothing any worse than canon) – stay safe, guys. ♥

Roy’s early.  Of course he is.  The bastard. )

Prompt: "intricate machinery" for Roy/Ed Week
Summary: It's the little things in life – or, as luck would have it, in one's bed.
Author's Note: Q. Are you really trying to pass off a poorly-executed extended metaphor as a fanfic? A. WELCOME TO ROY/ED WEEK, MOTHERFUCKERS ……maybe.

Surfacing from sleep and knowing, somewhere in the back of his mind, that he doesn’t have to drag himself out of bed for several hours yet is one of the single simplest and most decadent pleasures of life, as far as Roy is concerned. )

Author's Note: Also, I've had a few messages about this on Tumblr, and I totally encourage it: If you need a heads up/a description/some spoilers about what's going to happen in the next few parts to make sure it'll be okay for you to read, LET ME KNOW! I am more than happy to give you the DL on this shit so you can keep yourself safe. ♥ Tumblr is a great place to ask, especially if you have an account and I can answer you privately; otherwise, please leave your email or something when you ask, so I can send you a note and keep the comments spoiler-free. ♥

The familiar hell of a persistent car horn soundbyte roused Ed to the beautiful hour of holy-fucking-shit-no-o’-clock. )

Author's Note: OKAYYYYYYY, so here's the deal – Part 4 is full of no-good awful shit, by and large, and it ends in cliffhangers that will make you all wonder why you were angry at me last time. :'D So I won't be posting it until I'm done with Part 5 – such that I can just keep updating straight through, and the suspense will only last a week, rather than some indeterminable between-fic interval like I usually do. Not sure when that'll be! Hopefully soon. I've started Part 6. Everything is a disaster. Stay tuned. Thank you for being here. ♥

Al has to go do some sort of mysterious Al Stuff a couple minutes later—that, or he knows that Roy wants to say something that’s only for Ed’s ears, and the Al Stuff is completely invented as an extension of Al’s enormous capacity for tact. )

Roy dropped Winry back at her place first.  Al walked her up to the door of her complex, and Ed looked studiously away while they played tonsil hockey for, like, ten freakin’ minutes and stuff. )

They start out across the campus.  Ed has no idea where Hohenheim thinks they’re going; he himself doesn’t know shit about the layout of this place, so he’s just sort of… walking.  Trying not to let his knees give out. )

I'm hoping to update next Monday – and it won't be any earlier than that, 'cause I'm gonna be at FANIME!!!!!!! all weekend… with up to 3 other amazing Roy/Ed authors around me at any given time. :3 If you're going to be there, and you see me, say hi! ♥
