[Fanfic] Armstrong/Mustang - R - "Second Best."

Title: Second Best.
Pairing(s): Alex Armstrong/Roy Mustang, allusions to Roy Mustang/Edward Elric.
Beta: None, all mistakes my own.
Rating: R.
Genre: Angst.
Warnings: Post anime, post movie, loosely attached to canon.
Feedback: Very welcome, please!
Word Count: 396.
Summary: It’s hard to keep going like this, to be second best, but an Armstrong is always humble, and Alex is an Armstrong thorough and thorough.
Author's Notes: Done for my drabble requests for Christmas, for Agora, who requested this pairing (you did it to get back at me after Seamus/Skylar, didn’t you?), as well as sparkles. I seem to be in a bipolar mood swing tonight, from humor to angst, in two seconds flat.

( It’s selfish to want it, to wish so fervently for something so mean, but Alex is just human, despite it all, and no matter how many sparkles he has around his head, he can see clearly: He’s just second best. )
