"My wealth and treasures? If you want it, I'll let you have it. Look for it, I left it all at that place!"
Fandom: FMA (manga version, but probably also works if you've only seen the anime)
Character(s): Riza and her grandfather
Word Count: ~2525
Warnings: None. Set exceedingly pre-story (even before the flashback sequences), this piece is AU to the extent that it ignores one of Riza's comments about her family in the opening panels of chapter 60.
A/N: This story owes its existence to lyric_nonsense's fifteen-minute 'fic "To Serve and Protect", which prodded several latent ideas about Riza Hawkeye into closer proximity in my head. I had planned to write it as a fifteen-minute 'fic, too, but after the first three hours I gave that idea up. I should also mention the more distant inspiration of this story, with its piquant meditation on what young women really want. Many thanks to nateprentice for the weapons beta. Concrit welcomed with plum-cake, or perhaps a lunch box of my own invention. Crossposted from nebroadwe to Höllenbeck (i.e. hagaren_manga, fm_alchemist, _rizahawkeye_, fullservicefma, fma_gen, fma_writers and fma_fiction).
Dedication: For cornerofmadness as YA early birthday present. (Hey, it's cheaper than booze and not half as fattening.) Many happy returns!
"Now," the General said. "Watch closely. You may wish to cover your ears," he added, as he raised the pistol and sighted.
Characters: Havoc and Mustang mostly, with bits of Ed, Hughes, and Breda (no pairing)
Warnings: Kinda violent
Summary After Havoc goes AWOL while on a mission, everyone starts to wonder why he is acting so strangely.
Here's chapter 3: Ed didn’t really know what to expect when he halted in front of that closed door. He just stopped and stared at it, eyeing the glinting steel of the handle, but not yet daring to reach for it.
