You know how they say cherish what you have? I never really thought about that statement. But after what happened, I realized what was true, and also how important it was....

__________:__________;__________:__________:__________

-=Ed's POV=-

The sun was burning. It had to be one hundred degrees out. With no exaggeration. Deserts must have something against us; we're constantly walking through them. Well.... not as much anymore I suppose. We had been at Central for a while, and we were almost at the town. Now, if they don't give us a hard time....

"Nii-san, did you see the town?"

"Yeah Al. Nice sight isn't it?" I grinned.

He nodded. "Yeah, it is. You must be tired, Nii-san."

I flexed a muscle. "Nah, I'm alright. But yeah, I suppose it'll be nice to rest, haven't slept in a bed for.... five days?"

"Yeah, it has been five days."

The sun was setting earlier than I thought, but the town was close in sight. As we finally hit the cool sand at the town's border, I sighed. "Great, the hotel's right there."

We walked into the hotel, I told Al to be as nonchalant as he could. A girl was sitting at a desk, and we walked over to her. "Miss, can we have a room?" She smiled kindly at us and nodded. "Yes sir, may I have your names?"

I hesitated for a moment before answering. "Edward and Alphonse Elric."

As she wrote our names down, I saw her pause in her writing for a split second, and she looked up at me, squinting her eyes, before looking back down at the paper. "Here's your room key sir." She handed me the key. "Have a good night."

"Thank you." I nodded at Al, and we started up the stairs, getting to our room as I unlocked it, and then re-locked it. Sighing, I leaned against the door. I scanned my eyes across the room, sighting the two beds. I walked over to one, flopping on it and breathing contently as I stuffed my face into the pillow. "Beds are nice."

Al laughed. "Yeah, they are Nii-san." He sat on his bed, lying down, his legs set about a foot off the bed. "Heh, I'm too big for normal beds though."

I glared at him. "At least your not too small." It'd been two years, and I still hadn't grown. Ok, maybe an inch or two, but not enough. "You realize that when you get put back into your normal body your going to be taller than me right?"

I could hear him chuckle. "Yes, Nii-san. And I'm sorry. I know that would probably upset you, since you are the older brother but...." He shrugged. "You know I can't help it!"

"Yeah yeah...." I murmured. I looked over at Al, smiling.

"Hey Al....I just wanted to know you've made me proud. As your big brother I mean."

I heard Al let out a bit of a surprised gasp. "Nii-san.... why did you say that suddenly?"

"Because of some of the things I think Al. I'm bad at saying what I mean."

As he looked at me, I was sad about the look of confusion I knew he was feeling and didn't have. I missed seeing his emotions on his face. "Nii-san.... if you can't tell me how your feeling...." He hesitated. "Can you show me?"

"Heh." I smiled, and stood up, walking over and standing over his bed. "Al, I'm sorry, and I feel so stupid for doing this but...."

There was no hesitation. Which was rare for me. I leaned forward, pressing my warm lips against his cold metal.

The feeling was.... incredible. The way I'd been waiting, and the combination of my warm lips, against his cold, metal 'mouth'. And the way he.... responded. Yeah, I know I'm crazy. 'A robot can't respond'. But he did. He put his hand in my hair, and I could almost feel his 'lips' moving against mine. I pulled away, and what was only a second seemed like forever.

"I think you get what I was trying to say."

And I swear, he smiled.

Just to point something out here... why did you call Al a robot? ^.^;;;;

O-o;; Wow. Um....it was late, I was tired....yeah. ^__^;; Yeah. Was it bad other than that.

thank you very much oh Mr. Robot-o
*dose the robot*

You can see Al smile ^_^ Well I know I can

But I still dont understand why Al thinks that he has to be smaller than Ed, cause Ed is older. Im taller than my older sister *lol*

That is really adorable.
I mean, it's hard to think of what to do or say, with Al being in the armor and all. But this is done SO well. And I love it. ^^
The ►Charismatic◄ Dreamindividual on March 11th, 2005 08:14 am (UTC)
Thank you. ^__^ I was actually starting to doubt my writing skills for a while, because I wrote a Ed/Roy drabble thingy that I HATED and that I thought was horrible and people liked it. I was like, 'Wow. O-o;;' But apparently, I must write better than I think I do, because everyone tends to like my FMA fics. And this was only my second (I think) one. ^__^ -obsessive fan all the way- Thank you for your compliments. Any couples in particular you like? I could write something for you if you want ^__^.

Thank you for your compliments.

Oh, np.
You deserved them.
I don't hand them out freely. >)

O_O!
Really!?

My OTP is Roy/Ed/Al, which I claimed on 100_themes and is harder than shit to write. XP
But if you can, then go for it!
Otherwise, just Roy/Ed or Al/Ed is really good for me. ^^

Likewise, I'll draw you a picture if you'd like.
You can find my art Here if you'd like to see to make sure I don't suck. XD
The ►Charismatic◄ Dreamindividual on March 12th, 2005 09:41 am (UTC)
Roy/Ed/Al? OMG -yaoi overload- XD I could TRY to write it....it might suckass, but I could try. Would you be too dishonored if it sucked? And I'm writing FMA Drabbles and posting them on here, I'm posting a Roy/Ed in like two minutes. ^__^

And you'd draw me a picture *_* -feels mega honored- Wow. I'd love that. And no, your art doesn't suck. Thank you for offering. I'd like that, but only do it if you really want and you have time. ^__^;; -time constrants are evil-

YAAAAAAAAAAAY!
I loves yooooooou.

Would you be too dishonored if it sucked? And I'm writing FMA Drabbles and posting them on here, I'm posting a Roy/Ed in like two minutes. ^__^

I'm going through journals now, so I'll probably see it.
And I'm sure whatever you write won't suck!
I'm always superflattered when people write stuff for me!
No one on deviantART ever does anything for me, but lj people are pretty nice about it. ^^

And you'd draw me a picture *_* -feels mega honored- Wow. I'd love that. And no, your art doesn't suck. Thank you for offering. I'd like that, but only do it if you really want and you have time. ^__^;; -time constrants are evil-

Nah, it's cool.
I should be able to do it after March is over. ^^
Just let me know what you want.
The ►Charismatic◄ Dreamindividual on March 12th, 2005 05:04 pm (UTC)
Oh man. Uh....something with Roy and Ed? Or Al....Roy/Ed/Al XD Or...just draw one of your favorite scenes from the fanfiction or something. That'd make me happy. Anything you want really. ^__^ OH! And I have an idea for a Roy/Ed/Al, but it sort of involves Roy just kinda playing both of them and neither one of them knowing. Would that be ok? Roy would probably sorta be an ass. Or sort of weak. O-< But I'd try to make him as IC as I could. Would you mind that?

^^
I'll see what I can come up with.
You're....god, you're younger than I thought, so I'm not thinking I'm gonna draw smut. XD
But I'll do something probably next month - right now my workload is kinda heavy.

OH! And I have an idea for a Roy/Ed/Al, but it sort of involves Roy just kinda playing both of them and neither one of them knowing.

That's....interesting. O_o;
I'd have NEVER thought of something like that. XD
But threesome is HARD to do - that Balcony story I wrote wasn't even exactly what I want.
I haven't written the scene with all three of them in my big fic - but I consider all three of them to be sort of...in love with each other.
I even made my Ed Al and Roy on the Sims game love each other. XD
But the Al is jealous. O_o;;;

Would that be ok? Roy would probably sorta be an ass. Or sort of weak. O-< But I'd try to make him as IC as I could. Would you mind that?

No, it's fine.
Roy *is* a horrible bastard sometimes. XD

It's a very nice fic, with the tone and the overall feeling of it, however, it made me wonder at the end, whether you were going to continue this fic. There were some points that created an expected plot, after it, like... the girl squinting her eyes at them as soon as she figured their names, you know? Another thing is, there are a few things in there that Edward wouldn't say or think. Alu as a... robot? Hm. And it's a bit odd for Edo to admit his lack in height like that. Good job, anyway.
Kasumiedw4rd_elric on March 10th, 2005 08:29 pm (UTC)
Tell me if those points in the stroy were foreshadowing! I'd like to know, if you're continuing it, anyway. >.> If not, just reply to the comment, and I'll stop wondering. XD;
The ►Charismatic◄ Dreamindividual on March 11th, 2005 08:07 am (UTC)
I wasn't going to continue it. Is it THAT decent? I actually didn't think it was that good. ^__^;; I guess I write decent FMA fanfiction, 'cause everyone on here seems to like it. -feels special- I might write some drabbles or something, my current obssesion is Ed/Envy so....-shrugs-

Is there any pairing in particular you like? I could write something for you if you want. ^__^
xenophyle on March 11th, 2005 05:34 am (UTC)
Other than the robot part, that was *fantastic.* I'm in awe. I am becoming a huge fan. Rock on, individual!
The ►Charismatic◄ Dreamindividual on March 11th, 2005 08:11 am (UTC)
-feels special- Wow, I'm glad I joined the community. Everyone here is nice and makes my day. ^__^ Except god, I feel SO stupid for writing 'robot' >> >>;; God, that was retarted. -notes to triple-check stories- Is there any couple in particular you like? I could write something for you if you'd like. ^__^ Thank you again for the confidence-boosting compliments.
xenophyle on March 11th, 2005 11:56 am (UTC)
Actually, you already did. Man, you are a sweetie to offer. I am very fucking honored.

I have to tell you how awesome it is to find a writer who uses simple, elegant language and takes chances with imagery and ideas. The robot idea actually made me think about Al. I mean, in the sense that he's got a metal body, and if he does feel anything, it's got to be something like being a robot.
The ►Charismatic◄ Dreamindividual on March 12th, 2005 09:42 am (UTC)
^__^ Thank you again. I post everything I write, and I basicially hope that it's good (sometimes I think its horrible. but others like it) I like to write to make people happy, and I'm glad you like it.
