Plot:  Roy and Ed have been together for 15 years now—Roy prepares to fulfill his 520-cenz promise to make Amestris a democracy, but just before Roy’s 50th birthday and his wedding to Edward a tell-all biography about Mustang is published  that sets the country on its ear---because the ‘truth’ about the Promised Day is about to come out, with Roy miscast as the evil genius behind it all…
SUMMARY: Havoc and Hawkeye begin the rocky road to reconciliation (with a little help from their friends). Anti-alchemy riots are breaking out in Amestris and an attack outside West City has become a source of worry for Roy…and a personal loss for Alphonse. Meanwhile, Ed’s revenge on Roy’s ‘biographer’ has her too paranoid to badmouth Mustang to the press, thanks to the help of some of Chris Mustang’s network of ‘ street informants’.

I asked Hawkeye what she was going to wear to the ceremony. She said ‘same thing as you—urban camouflage, rappelling harness, twenty meters of rope and a machine gun’.”Collapse )
