Fandom: Fullmetal Alchemist.
Characters: Mostly Envy-Centric.
Chronological Order: Third.
Spoilers: For all the anime, although this piece diverges from the series around the start of episode 32, with little side details.
Beta: DramaQueen and Dynast.
Rating: R, for violence (Envy), swearing (Ed).
Pairings: Roy/Ed, Scar/Al, though nothing concrete.
Feedback: Please! If you spot typos, grammar, continuity (but bear in mind this is an AU fic), do tell me. I tend to write late at night and although my beta's are skilled, they can't always catch all my slips.
Quote: “The passion of hatred is so long lived and so obstinate a malady that the surest sign of death in a sick person is their desire for reconciliation.” ~Ernest Hemingway.
Word Count: +/- 13 318, on this installment (both parts), over all, +/- 61 500. Notes: It's done! DONE! I thought this day would never come. I just got this back from DQ and I'm posting it now, because I'm about to pull the disappearing act, and I feel it'd be mean to leave this thing unfinished before doing so. So here's the end of Penitence. Split into three parts, because LJ hates long posts. Feedback is very welcome.
( Almost five hundred years later, Vyktor Elric was but a faint memory, hidden away in the folds of a mind belonging to a monster who went by the name of Envy, and who had more blood on his hands than in his veins. )
