Fic: At A Cost (gen)  
The thought that started this story was more or less What if everything ends well? What if Ed and Al are restored, and the nasty ruler types are cleared out of the way so Roy can take over? Here's the start of the answer that occurred to me.

Gen, Angst, Fluff, AU (denial of character death).

At A Cost

Despite all conditioned reflex to the contrary, this is not UST and will never become either yaoi or het.

What a fantastic start. I adore Roy's "two more safe" and how he's keeping so much on his shoulders. Will Ed and/or Al come back? It sounds like Edward, at least, might be needed. How far in the future is this? Regardless, it seems like you've spot on characterization, and the interaction between the Hughes and Roy was perfect. *looks forward to the next part*

Will Ed and/or Al come back?

*grins* Oh, heck, yeah. Ed and I are still in negotiation for how long a vacation he gets, but he's definitely coming back, snarky as ever.

I'm working on the assumption that the series proper will wind up some time during Ed's sixteenth year, and this is set just after whenever the end happens.

Thanks, I'm glad you liked it!

Bon! I live for the moment Ed-kun realizes he was manipulated and his reaction thereto.
