Summary: After six years, the brothers are finally reunited, but will Ed be able to adjust to a world that has long since moved on without him? This is an AU that ignores the movie. Pairings include an Ed/Win Al/Win triangle of sorts, but there is mention of some past Ed/Hei and past Roy/Riza.
Chapter Summary: The state of Amestris is quickly spiraling out of control, taking the Elric brothers with it.

Note1: I'm never going to be entirely happy with this chapter, but I've been putzing around with it for so long that I decided to go ahead and post it. I really appreciate all the encouragement and support I've gotten on this fic and the one that came before it, and I promise everyone who is reading that the next chapter will come much faster than this one!
Note2: Yes, I have been neglecting my NaNoWriMo project just to finish this up and post it! That's because I'm so excited about the twelth and final chapter of this fic, I just didn't want to wait anymore!
Note3: Without giving too much away, let me just say that there are a LOT of misunderstandings going on in this fic. SOME of them will be resolved by the next chapter, SOME will not, and will have to wait until the following fic!
