Fanfic: A Story To Tell (Fullmetal Alchemist)  
Title: A Story To Tell
Fandom: FMA (anime version, in the Balance of Power post-series AU)
Character(s): Ed, Al, Hughes, various OCs
Pairing: None
Rating: PG-13 (for language and general rudeness)
Warnings: Implicit end-of-series and movie spoilers.
Challenge: Theme #5 ("I couldn't do that. Could you do that? Why can they do it? Who are those guys?") of the cbs_crackfic Thirty Pop-Culture Prompts Challenge Contest (although this doesn't constitute an official entry, since it goes way over the maximum word-count. I'm just having fun writing my first piece of action/adventure/comedy!)
A/N: This story takes place after the end of the currently-running storyline of c_b_syndrome's Balance of Power plotfic, but requires only that you understand the basic premises of that piece: that episode 25 didn't end as it seemed to and that Ed (his automail camouflaged by a layer of latex), a restored Al and Maes Hughes have been forcibly relocated to the early twenty-first-century American Midwest and are now on the run from their chief antagonist in the company of some friendly locals. I also borrowed some implicit backstory from mikkeneko's ongoing plotfic Temperance (compleatur!), because I'm enjoying it so much. Crossposted from nebroadwe to Höllenbeck (i.e. cbs_crackfic, fm_alchemist, fullservicefma, fma_gen, fma_writers, and fma_fiction).
Dedication: For all the Crackbunnies, of course. This is your fault. And for John, who kept begging for the next installment.
