Pairing: elric brothers (not elricest, though)
Rating: PG-13 for a slightly disturbing scene on page three.
Basics: Who hurts more? The one who can feel pain physcially or the one who can't feel at all?
Gibbs, when pronounced in Japanese, is "Gibusu," which is also the word for "cast," as in a plaster cast you put on a broken limb. This doujin was inspired by the song "Gibbs" by Sheena Ringo.
I was going for the hurt-healing sort of mood in this doujin. The idea is this: "What is worse, not being able to feel anything or feeling too much? Which side hurts more?"
This doujin was made to be more cryptic and heavy than the other ones I have done, so if there are any questions, just ask.
Text is in Mandarin. Tones were done in Photoshop with pre-made tones.
Ed: Finally found you!
Ed: What is it? Where does it hurt?
Ed: Al, where does it hurt?
Ed: Come on, don't just cry, I'm going to leave you here!
Al: Niisan, it hurts...
Ed: What, where does it hurt?
Al: Niisan, I...
Al: I hurt everywhere!
Al: Niisan, what's wrong?
Al: Niisan? What's wrong?
Al: Does it hurt somewhere?
Ed: It's me...
Ed: It's all my fault...
Al: Ah! Could it be that the place where your automail connects to your body is---
Ed: I was the one who made Al...
Ed: ...unable to feel even the most basic of feelings.
Ed: Yes...it hurts so much, Al...
Ed: ...and then I followed suit...
Ed: It hurts. It's killing me.
Ed: And became unable to fulfill even the most basic duty as an older brother.
Al: eeehh---? Then should I call for someone?
Ed: No need. You can just...
Ed: Hold me like this!
Ed: That night...
Ed: The temperature of my body eclipsed Al's cold armour.
Ed: And within the echoes of my heartbeat, I could faintly hear the sound of Al's heart crying in pain.
Ed: And yet I listened to that sound...and drowned deep in slumber.
I WANNA BE WITH YOU.
NEVER again am I doing Armour!Alphonse. >_< SO HARD.
