AUTHOR'S NOTE: This story is inspired by an amazing piece of art created by the very talented artist remaintobreathe. I was thrilled to have the chance to work with her and you can see her lovely art at the the end of the last chapter. A big thanks to her for inspiring me and challenging me to write a story based in the first FMA anime universe! This is set about 20 years after the movie CoS.
ARTIST: The beautiful art for this story was provided by the very talented remaintobreathe as part of the 2012 fmabigbang challenge.
