I got a review from ff.net about my story, "Dress Up", which included this:

-Although, I felt very twitchy with the part about his father, because I
heard (SPOILERS) that his father sold him to a brothel when he was

This is the first time I'm hearing about this. Does anyone know where the hell this originated?

Er, whose father, exactly? ^^;

Although that doesn't sound believable at all.

What the blank-blankety hell? Mustang? Well, it definitely didn't happen in the anime (unless it was in the Greed-arc, which I completely missed, but I don't think Mustang was even in those episodes, let alone forming an angsty backstory).

Manga-wise, I haven't been keeping up with the scanlated versions, but I have the books up to 12, and nothing even remotely resembling that theory has come up. I don't think Arakawa would bring something that sexual into her manga, for some reason.

I think someone's been reading too much fanfiction and has gotten mixed up ;P

Nothing like that in 51 anime episodes, movie, or 58 chapters of manga. Either that, or I was more sleep-deprived than I thought I was.

Where the hell do people come up with things like this?

A fanfic mentioned that Roy was sold off to a brothel :P

Fanfic World =/= FMA World

Somebody needs to stop doing drugs. Seriously.

But I'm making a fortune selling this stuff to the kiddies! *sad eyes*

Isn't in any of the guidebooks, episodes, movie, OVAs, manga, or any of the novels that I've managed to read. And this goes for everyone's fathers. Though most especially Roy, because being as obsessive as I am, if it mentioned anything about that, I would have remembered it.

Of all my knowledge of FMA...

Not one of the characters can I recall having been sold to a brothel...

Sure, Rose gets raped by soldiers in the anime... but that's the closest thing I can think of.

Wasn't there mention of something like "Roys seven sisters used to dress him up all the time"? I seem to recall reading that as an official fact or something ... maybe that's where the person got this screwed up idea? Ever play Telephone when you were a kid? *laugh*

That comment is most likely based off of a plot device in a surprisingly well written fanfiction detailing an author's rendition of what Roy's childhood might have been like (one of the many). I don't quite remember the author's name as of now, but the story was four chapters long, was VERY well written, and involved a young Roy almost being sold into prostitution by a negligent father.

Ravenswood was the name of the made up alchemy dude Roy borrowed books from, and he had a daughter named Jenna, I think, who helped take care of Roy and doped him up on cookies and sweets. Hohenheim is portrayed as an up and coming alchemist, with Trisha pregnant with Edward (or Alphonse, I forget which), and stuff happens because I'm too lazy to write up a full summary.

The fic was AU and all, but really good. However, I find it rather annoying that a fan would get the facts mixed up with fantasy.


The story is in the 'M' rated section of FF.Net's FMA section.

Why the hell I remember this, I do not know.

Hope this helped. If I have time, I'll post a link to the fic in question.

Found the story. It's "The Roots of Violence," by D.M. Evans. Story can be found here.
