FMA: Ed new beginnings

[Fic] FMA: Catalysis, Roy/Ed, Arc II: Chapter 03

Writer: iluxia
Editor: aventria
Words: For this chapter, ~7500
Genre: General, Drama, Romance, Action-Adventure, Political Intrigue, Mild Angst
Rating(s): PG-13 to NC-17 (chapters will be marked accordingly)

Summary: We have all watched Edward's struggle to regain his brother's body and undo the past. We have read stories in which he succeeds to do so, and some in which he does not. Now let's try for something different.
This time, let's ask: what if, ultimately, Trisha Elric never died?
Watch as Edward Elric walks a path markedly different from the old, meeting the people who will help shape his perspective, challenge his beliefs, further his science -- all the while getting himself entangled in a momentous mess that began centuries even before he was born.
Because after all, though a path might be deviant, no path is wrong.

( Chapter 03: We don't receive wisdom; we must discover it for ourselves after a journey no one can take for us or spare us." In Central, Edward finds a willing mentor -- now all that is missing is a willing apprentice. )

Two Short Fics

I'm new to Livejournal, so this is pretty exciting! Comments are much appreciated.

Title: Let Fly

Mangaverse, if only because the personality of anime Hohenheim is lacking.

Hohenheim centric, inspired by Nefertekas on deviantart.

Summary: He used to scare away the monsters underneath his sons' beds.

No warnings, some angst.

Fic Two:

Title: Breaking Point

Mangaverse, for no particular reason.

Summary: People like Maes Hughes aren't supposed to die.

No warnings, but heavy angst.

People like Maes Hughes don't die. )
