Summary: Things Mustang and Hawkeye find to do with their lives, post-series. Individual summaries follow with the links for individual stories.

This arc has three threads to it. Once More ... Dear Friends is Mustang's pov. Counterpoint is Hawkeye's pov. And Side Scenes are storylets from the perspective of other characters. Some of the parts happen at the same time as other parts; those are noted individually on each story.
