Summary: Ed disappeared back through the gate a year and a half ago. It's taken that long for Roy to really come to terms with it, and now he's moved on in the belief that Ed is truly gone. It's working out well until a familiar face shows back up on his doorstep.
A/N: Written for fma_big_bang. It was actually intended to be Roy/Ed/Riza, mostly plotless, and full of smut. It proceeded to grow a mind of its own, give me the finger, and this is the result.
A huge, huge thank you to elfen. She is utterly amazing, and I absolutely could not have pulled this together coherently without her.
Thank you also to my big bang artist, jojo_kun, who did a lovely illustration for the story. It can be found here.
The rest of my fanfiction is here.
It was not until Ed returned with death and destruction nipping at his heels from a world not their own that she began to understand.
