Notes: I came up with this a few days ago last November and didn’t want to let go of it. I don’t think I’m ready for NaNoWriMo but I can still attempt this, regardless.

PROLOGUE This couldn't be real. It couldn't, but here were Shannon and Kelly, whole -- solid, not reduced to bloody little...dear God...

PART ONE The blood drained from Ed's face and he slumped forward, staring at his hands. He didn't say anything and Al watched him miserably, knowing they both felt the same.

PART TWO Agent Gibbs was sitting across from her, bent over in his chair, his hands clenching his previously meticulous hair, tears falling onto the table beneath him, his breaths deep, long, shuddering.

PART THREE Then it was over, as quickly as it had started, and Gibbs was gasping for breath, slumping forward onto the table as tears matching his own stared back at him.

Notes: Let's just say the national languages of Amestris are equivalents of German, English, and in the case of the Ishvalans, a hybrid of Hebrew and possibly Hindi or even a dead language like Sumerian or Phrygian, but most, particularly the children, were forced (after the now-reversed decree of annexation of Ishval into Amestris) to learn English and German by order of Führer King Bradley.

PART FOUR "...Mustang?" Edward said weakly, an infuriated look slamming onto his face a moment later. "You...you...I KNEW! I KNEW IT! AL, GET OVER HERE FOR A MINUTE!"

Note to everyone not cornerofmadness: I like Kate and Tony, I really, really do -- but their behavior toward McGee at times is completely uncalled for and entirely unprofessional. It's despicable to me and I grabbed an opportunity where I saw one.

PART FIVE The ache of separation is gone but we're useful only in giving direction. It's the price we paid.

PART SIX "Go get Ed and Al settled, Jethro," Gracia soothed, a watery smile on her face as she shooed the three of them forward. "We'll be right here when you and Al get back."

Notes: A Cracked article inspired part of the dialogue between Gibbs, Roy, and Mäes. The lyrics belong to Blind Willie McTell, who scares me.
