Some author's notes for this story arc... (sorry I took 6 chapters to finally post them)
Some of the dates are canon and some I had to make up for the story.

Maes graduates the academy at age 20. 1906- Riza graduates the academy at age 19. 1908- State Alchemists and other military are sent to quell the Ishbal Rebellion.
This story ended up filling two niches.
It was done for the 7stages
LJ group. The theme for this one was "The Cruelest Month".
This is also the sixth story in the Maes Hughes x Roy Mustang story arc called (unoriginally) "The Seed of the Fire". Chapter 1 Chapter 2 Chapter 3 Chapter 4 Chapter 5 Chapter 6
Fandom: Fullmetal Alchemist
Title: Photograph (Chapter 6)
Theme(s): #1 - "The Cruelest Month"
Pairing: Roy Mustang x Maes Hughes
Rating: PG-13 for some smexyness....
Disclaimer: AU, Set before the anime started, while Maes and Roy were roommates at the military academy.
Summary: Often, one doesnt know how good they have it untill they dont have it anymore... Neither of them could believe that this was the end. They had both made it through 3 years of the academy, and it was almost over. All they had to do was attend graduation, and then they were free. Well, not free, really.
