:iconshinken-silver-14: - Remember
Alphonse Elric closed the fridge in a huff. "Brother?"
"Yeah?" Edward Elric asked from his seat at the table, reading the newspaper and taking a sip of his coffee. He had developed a real taste for coffee lately. He didn't know why.
"We don't have any more of those muffins left. I thought you said you bought some more." Al had a habit of scolding his brother, despite their obvious age difference.
"I did. You're just not looking hard enough," Ed said, without looking up from the newspaper.
Al checked again. Nothing.
"I checked at least seven times, Brother. Still nothing."
"Are you looking in the fridge?"
"Yes," Al said, quite agitated at the fact that his brother was still unbelievably lazy, even after all these years.
"The reason you can't find it is because you're not looking in the right place," Ed said, like it was nothing.
"Then where should I be looking?" Al asked, the agitation still going strong.
"The pantry," Ed said, as if it were the most obvious answer in the entir

:iconarkemaspride: - The Night Before (A FMA FanFic)         I walked onto the porch, my feet making different sounds against the wood. I looked down. Of course they were, one foot was flesh and blood while the other was was automail. That was another reminder about tomorrow.
Tomorrow Al and I would be taking a train to Central for the State Alchemy Exam. I still wondered whether that was the right choice to make. The funding we would get if we passed would certainly help us on our quest.
Quest is the right word to use. A quest to get our bodies back to normal. Was that the right choice? To get things back to normal? Or should we stick with what we have? Trying to get our bodies back to means using human transmutation, which is forbidden. That's what got us into this mess in the first place. Trying to bring back Mom. The results were disastrous. I lost my left leg from the knee down and Al, his entire body. It was lucky Father kept a suit of armour in his study. If he had not, what else wou

:iconlcextrordinaire: - Silver Sorrow (contest entry)A small blond teen flew through the air and landed next to a suit of armor and excitedly looked up at it excitedly. The armor next to the human was making him appear smaller that he actually was due to the large size of the armor. 
"Hey, Al! I passed the State Alchemist examination! And I made it! Now I can get our bodies back!"
A small, young voice came from the armor, echoing off the sides of the hollow suit. "That's great, brother! I know that automail must be hard on your body, Ed."
"Well, I promise that I'll get our bodies back," Ed replied to his brother. He looked up to the sky and closed his eyes, letting the sun beat down on him and fill him with hope.
Wearing nothing but his leather pants and tight black tank, Ed was crying so hard that his small body shook and was making each breath a struggle. Tears were streaming freely down his face, hanging on the tip of his nose and chin before falling to rest on the floor with the others that had already fallen i

Spoiler Warning!
This contains spoilers for the end of the series, proceed with caution if you have not finished the end of Brotherhood or the manga.
Timeline: Episode 62-63 of Brotherhood
Many people he knew took things for granted.
There had been a time when Edward Elric had took those things for granted as well.
But that was before that night.  That night.  The night when everything went terribly wrong.  Things had actually started going wrong long before that night, ever since he-Edward refused to call him anything else except a few swear words-had left, ever since Ed's mom died.  Ever since then it was as if the world turned upside-down.  For a while there was peace with Teacher, learning alchemy, but that had ended too.  But everything just fell apart then.
He and Al had thought everything out so well.  Why-why had it g

:icondark-amethyst: - The Bad DaysThere were the good days. Days when he would laugh, tease Winry, chase Den around the yard, spar on the pretense of checking Al's reflexes and strength. He would pour himself a glass of lemonade and sprawl under a tree, reading until he fell asleep with a contented smile on his face. He would stare at the back of Winry's head with a funny little smile, and Al would dare to think he was happy.
Then there were the bad days.
They always seemed to come right after the days when he seemed the happiest, like he was coming down from a sugar rush. He would be in high spirits at dinner, joking and eating with gusto, then tickle Al just to hear him laugh and rush off to bed, taking the steps two at a time and appearing to be fast asleep by the time Al entered their room. But the next morning, he wouldn't wake up for hours. He would just sleep and sleep and sleep, and sometimes Al would peek in and catch him just lying there, staring at the ceiling or the wall and not showing the slightest

            “Huh? A surprise alchemy assessment?” Ed asked aloud while reading a letter from his superior.
            “What is it brother?” Al asked coming in from the other room, carrying a box to store in the basement.
            “oh, its nothing Al.” Ed said turning to his brother. “Just some stupid letter from the colonel.”
            Al put down his box and walked over, his steps clunking on the tile floor. “What’s it about?”
            The two Elric brothers were standing in the entryway of Winry’s house in Risembool; Ed visiting for his normal maintenance. It was the middle of the year

:iconartemis-day: - FMA- Turning GearsEveryone called Edward Elric a genius, but that doesn't mean he knew it all.  Automail, for example, would always be something of a mystery to him.  Oh, he knew the mechanics of it, at least in theory.  Winry was a Grade-A Gearhead and always happy to explain in painstaking detail how every single wire and bolt and gear worked in tandem to make his arm move on command.  With stars in her eyes and long blonde hair flipping around in her tight ponytail, Winry could go on for hours without ever getting tired or even stopping to eat.
Seriously, Ed had seen her do it!
He remembered being seven years old, making the innocent, yet huge mistake of asking her what automail was.
"Automail?  Are you kidding?!  Automail is the best ever!  It's linked directly to the nervous system, and can be at will just like a real arm or leg.  It takes electrical pulses from the nerves to power all the electric motors and pneumatic actuators inside.  They're generally made from�"

:iconnumbuh4gal: - Old FacesI woke up in a cold sweat, I had just had another nightmare about us transmuting our Mom. I stood up slowly and walked to the kitchen. When I walked I stopped by Alphonse's door. I could hear his soft breathing through the door, causing me to smile slightly. Even though I was stuck in this other world, Al had my body back and was with happy so I was happy.
I walked through the library, taking a book and went up to check it out. "Have a great day." the librarian said with a smile.
"Thanks." I replied and walked outside and began walking home. Alphonse ran up and met up with me.
"Did you find an interesting book, brother?" Al asked, smiling.
I nodded. "Yeah, took a little bit of time to find one I haven't already read but it was worth it." I replied with a grin. We were about to walk inside but Hughes ran out and stopped us.
"Hey, boys!" he exclaimed and ran up. He was currently engaged to Gracia

3rd October, 1924 - Resembool
Despite how much had changed, I still hadn't forgotten. October 3rd was now more than just a promise to never turn back, it was a vow to never forget my journey no matter how many years passed.
It was strange being home again, but I found it was also quite a comfort. The lush green fields and peaceful air were exactly the same as when I was a child. It was refreshing after living in Rush Valley. It was a good place with nice people, but it had never felt the same. I managed to convince Winry that our family needed some time off. Now the Rockbell's house had been turned into a holiday home for us.
I had some other reasons besides that, but I didn't need to tell Winry; she knew. Now I was on my own again, walking the same path I first walked twenty years ago. Already I felt sombre as I approached the Resembool graveyard. Old, regrettable memories started creeping towards the forefront of my mind, memories I tried to contain as m

:iconaveragepotter13: - The Price I PayThe Price I Pay
An arm,
A leg,
For a mistake,
And a soul.
That's the outward price I paid.
But the price I pay every day,
Which I am reminded of everyday,
It's not as obvious as that.
It's in the morning when I hear the whispers of those around me,
Some shouts and proclamation of what I had done,
And I'm forced to remember that day.
It's in the afternoon as I look at my brothers body made of armor,
Wondering how cold it must be in there,
And I'm forced to remember that day.
It's at night when I dream of my mother,
Until my heart begins to ache,
And I'm forced to remember that day.
It's my very existence,
A goal so lofty it's always just out of my reach,
Because of that day.
Sometimes I lay awake and wonder,
Is this worth the price I pay?
Will I ever be able to forget that day?
Will I ever truly finish paying the price?

:iconlcextrordinaire: - Why My Brother, Why My Mother? (contest entry)
Why My Brother, Why my Mother?
Why must my want for one, destroy another I love?
Why though I tried, must it all crumble round?
I just tried to help, to right a wrong.
Why must my want for one, destroy another I love?
My brother I lost, my brother I gained.
My brother I may never touch again.
I just tried to save, but hell I gave.
My brother I lost, my brother I gained.
Friends we gained, enemies we made.
Some stood by, others stood in.
Some lived, some lost, some died.
Friends we gained, enemies we made.
We tried to transmute the dead to the living.
We tried in innocence to see our mother.
Our ignorance led us to fail.
We tried to transmute the dead to the living.
Water, carbon, ammonia, lime.
A small price to pay, a soul we are missing.
Brought from the earth, we are but dust.
Water, carbon, ammonia, lime.

:iconshojo-onigiri: - Our fate
My Past is rough, I have committed a sin.
Even now its hard to let anyone in.
The science was perfect, But then I did not know,
That when things passed, it was time to let it go.
I couldn't help it, I was just a kid.
They all tried to tell me it was forbid.
though nothing helped, I knew what I was going to do.
I was bring back our mom, And I had Al help me too.
We had it all ready, the ingredients were set.
But then we did not know of the impending regret.
The second we started, something went wrong,
I felt a tug, my head hurt, The pain was strong.
I got sucked in a room of white,and it only had one door.
and what looked like one person, just sitting on the floor.
He said he was the world, He said he was all.
that was when my heart suddenly began to fall.
He opened the door, they pulled me in,
That's when it all started to begin.
I was forced to watch, every single truth.
As well as some visions of my youth.
It filled my head, It felt like it was going to pop.
I just wanted it all to s

:iconnumbuh4gal: - The sinner's painWater, 35 liters. Carbon, 20 kilograms
The sinner's pain, dragging other's along.
Them all getting hurt, me forced to stand strong.
Water, 35 liters. Carbon, 20 kilograms
Ammonia, 4 liters. Lime, 1.5 kilograms.
The only things I had, torn away suddenly.
Everyone I touch gets hurt violently.
Ammonia, 4 liters. Lime, 1.5 kilograms.
Phosphorus, 800 grams. Salt, 250 grams.
Thrown into the military at age 12 most likely to kill, just wanting to save my brother.
Caring more about him than anyone else, not that there were any others.
Phosphorus, 800 grams. Salt, 250 grams.
Saltpeter, 100 grams. Sulfur, 80 grams.
A body that could never feel. No warmth, no cold, not even pain.
It's my fault he's like that. Unable to even walk and feel the rain.
Saltpeter, 100 grams. Sulfur, 80 grams.
Fluorine, 7.5. Iron 5.
A corrupt country, the innocent's covered in grime and grit.
The child within, right in the middle of it.
Fluorine, 7.5. Iron 5.
Silicon, 3 grams.
Our Father left us, and our Mother gone.

:iconmisscarmela: - My FaultIt is my Fault
Set these puzzle pieces on fire,
Slowly burning.
I want to hold your heart in my hand to keep it warm,
but your not here anymore.
His breath stood still.
Her obscured look crumpled their will.
He only prevailed upon lying.
And when she started walking,
Regret filled his mind, but
Then he began pacing,
Back to her side, with
Words so sweet, reviving a
Heartbeat that once had
Mother so kind, but father so cruel.
Are you the kind face I once knew?
Why is the earth not complete?
What is so obsolete?
These questions blew up our minds,
The monsters they dine.
Your soul we once knew,
Is nothing for two.
Sometimes, I regret what I did.
But sometimes I do not.
Why is that?
Another thing too, brother and mother of mine,
Have I failed you?
Why am I crying?
Why are you not?
You cannot.
That is my fault.
