Synopsis: It had been four months since he’d had a cigarette. He knew because he’d counted every single, blessed day.
Spoilers: Due to the timeline of this story, there will be spoilers abounding if you haven’t seen the entire anime, as well as some spoilers for mid to late manga chapters. I will do my best to either weave them in so they unidentifiable, or note what spoilers are where. For this chapter, we are dealing with some of the events in chapter 38 of the manga; however, as you will see, in this story, things will go slightly differently.
Author's Notes: Completely AU. My own little private timeline; my own private little world. Pieces of anime and manga woven together with liberal artistic license. This starts roughly after the end of the anime and after chapter 38 of the manga. We’re just going to pretend that the movie NEVER existed, okay?
Disclaimer: We all know I don’t own FMA or its characters. Just thought I’d finally say that. Thanks to The Lady and The Legend for creating such a wonderful world to play in.
