Fic: Agony and Ecstasy: The Fullmetal Iliad (Book 1)  
Title: Agony and Ecstasy: The Fullmetal Iliad (Book 1)
Author: priestess_grrrl
Pairing: RoyxEd
Rating: NC-17, Book 1: PG-13
Warnings: Um, it’s the Iliad. Blood, death, war, angst. Major character deaths.
Apologies to: Homer, Robert Fagles, Hiromu Arakawa, Manowar for the title
Dedication: To rainjoyous, who shares my love of everything Classical and everything RoyxEd

Notes: For those of you whose knowledge of the Iliad is based on crappy movies starring Brad Pitt, you can read more about the actual story here. Names are written in transliterated Greek. Translated phrases are my own or borrowed from Robert Fagles. Adaptation based purely on artistic license. Anachronisms galore. Very much AU. Book divisions do not correspond directly to Homer. And the following cut is fake.

Speak, O Goddess, of the wrath of Edward Elric, son of Hohenheim, the wrath that brought countless ills upon the Amestrians.
