Word Count: Act I - 8431, Act II - 5355
Characters: Almost everyone who ever appears in the Ishbal flashback (even the soldier chorus), and one OC.
Summary: A musical about Ishbal.
Warnings: Swearing, slash, violence, death. You know, all the usual Ishbal stuff.
Notes: Written on a dare from bob_fish. I've done my best to condense the entirety of the Ishbal flashback chapters into a coherent two-hour musical. Some characters and storylines were cut for time (sorry, Marcoh!) and I had to take some liberties here and there. There's a few Ishbalan words I've invented, and Priest = Scar and Brother = well, yeah. Don't be intimidated by the word count, heh, it's mostly songs. And speaking of songs, every source-title contains a link to a YouTube video with the original music, so you can sing along if you choose!
