[Fic] FMA: Catalysis, Roy/Ed, Arc II: Chapter 06

Title: Catalysis (click for full details & chapter index, also available on FF.N)
Writer: iluxia
Editor: aventria
Words: For this chapter, ~13000
Genre: General, Drama, Romance, Action-Adventure, Political Intrigue, Mild Angst
Rating(s): PG-13 to NC-17 (chapters will be marked accordingly)
Warning(s): YAOI (slash). Blood and gore, violence, possible future mature content, language.
Pair(s): Roy Mustang / Edward Elric (eventual); Roy Mustang / Maes Hughes (past); Envy / Edward Elric; no other pairs established as of yet.

Summary: We have all watched Edward's struggle to regain his brother's body and undo the past. We have read stories in which he succeeds to do so, and some in which he does not. Now let's try for something different.
This time, let's ask: what if, ultimately, Trisha Elric never died?
Watch as Edward Elric walks a path markedly different from the old, meeting the people who will help shape his perspective, challenge his beliefs, further his science -- all the while getting himself entangled in a momentous mess that began centuries even before he was born.
Because after all, though a path might be deviant, no path is wrong.

( Chapter 06: "Grown-ups never understand anything for themselves, and it is tiresome for children to always and forever be explaining things to them." Ed has his share of scholastic misadventures, and afterwards solves a murder. )
