Fanfic: Branded: Learning Curve (COMPLETE!!) - Part 7a

A/N: Almost four years ago, I began writing a series of humorous EdXWin stories called Branded that followed the pair as they negotiated the treacherous sexual obstacle course known as ‘first time love.’ Whilst Ed and Winry struggled to make it to the finish line alive, I let myself get distracted by the pretty lights and colors of other story series… Spreading myself too thin, I finished nothing. I also let RL take control of the muse too often. And so, four years later, having beaten my brain cells into submission, I now finally bring you the conclusion of story 3 of the Branded Series, Learning Curve, in its entirety, without commercial interruption or subtitles… Hope the stalwarts are still hanging in and the newbies aren’t too confused. [Below are links to the other chapters/parts of the series, #1 Branded, #2 Kiss and Tell, and #3 (parts 1-6) of Learning Curve.]


Feel free to throw tomatoes and lettuce, folks! (I deserve it!) And maybe a cuke and some mushrooms, too? (I’m in the mood for salad.)


To those happy to see this and those still hanging in there with me – thanks and I’m grateful!


Extra special thanks go out to alchemyotaku75 for her tireless cheerleading, endless encouragement and the dangling of more than one exciting carrot...
