Fanfiction: Revolt of the Flesh (Fullmetal Alchemist)

Title: Revolt of the Flesh
Fandom: FMA (manga version)
Character(s): Ed, Al, Winry and a lot of dead people

Warnings: Um, zombies? Beware, beware?
A/N: Revised version of my entry for the 2007 FMA Zombie Apocalypse Challenge, written because I'd never tried horror before and rewritten for the sake of eliminating, or at least mitigating, a weak transition, some unhappy word-repetitions and the inevitable typos. Not sure I'll ever do something like this again; I'm not fond of the headspace I have to enter to attempt it. And, yes, it's arguable that I cheated by using [spoiler] to explain the situation, but I kept tripping over one of the fundamental principles of the FMAverse (coincidentally also the punchline to a family story about the hazing of the undertaker's newest apprentice, which makes it really hard to ignore). Besides, this way I got to play with narrative logic and Jungian archetypes. The Brothers Grimm ate my brain long ago. Concrit welcomed with steak tartare. Crossposted from nebroadwe to Höllenbeck (i.e. hagaren_manga, fm_alchemist, fullservicefma, fma_gen, fma_writers, and fma_fiction).
Dedication: For nateprentice, who intones the word BRAAAAINS with more relish than anyone I know.

Ed reminds himself that he's seen bodies, dead humans and live chimeras, almost as mangled as this, but it doesn't help.

Welcome to Tricaelum, a gigantic city that's really more like three normal cities combined (and divided into seprate districts). It looks fairly normal on the outside, but there's a dark mystery lying just under it. A strange group simply known as the "Watchers" had decided to abduct various people from other worlds and dimensions, almost at random, and strips them of just about everything. Including thier real indenities, all believed to be part of some sort of experiment.

Now given a new name and different memories, this 'counterpart' character has to live out it's life within the world of Tricaelum, where nothing is at all what it seems. With many strange kinds of ceatures lurking and waiting in every corner, and other monsters pretending to be adverage humans, it sometimes hard to not get the feelng that something is definitely not right... And the veil becomes even thinner when older memories are suddenly flowing back.
