Teaser: As he got closer, he could hear screaming. Hundreds of voices, seeming to come from all over, and he couldn't see them. He couldn't see where they could be. The sound was agonizing, weeping, hysterical and pleading and he thought of the stories of Ishbal, of Liore, of the forgotten city sacrificed long ago for a Philosopher's Stone, of his brother screaming as the Gate broke down his body, his hand fading away even as Ed struggled to reach him, his own ruined leg be damned.
