[ed/riza; nc-17] A Kind of Pale Jewel (1/2)
Title: A Kind of Pale Jewel
Fandom: Fullmetal Alchemist
Pairing: Edward Elric/Riza Hawkeye
Word Count: 12,603
(wtf, plotbunny? You promised me it'd be a short little PWP when I started. Liar.)
Disclaimer: Fullmetal Alchemist (Hagane no Renkinjutsushi) is copyrighted by Hiromu Arakawa/Square Enix. This is a work of fanfiction for personal entertainment only. The premise of this story is inspired by some events in the doujinshi "Angelus" by the Fantasy Wind circle. (spoiler note: I'm disregarding the actual ending to the doujinshi at the demand of the plotbunnies, but I won't reveal what that is.)
Warnings: OOCness for Mustang, working with the characterization provided by the doujinshi. Mentions of rape.
Summary: With a restored Al, Ed returns to Central for a State Alchemist reevaluation, and while there, he chooses to seek absolution and make right something that went horribly wrong during another such visit years ago.
Notes: This fic was originally supposed to be a simple little PWP from a bunny that bit me while reading Angelus. The characterization in that was centered around a rather cracktastic dream, so it shouldn't have been too hard, right? Ha. Tricksy little bunnieses. Excuse the references of Roy's characterization. That was kept constant with the doujinshi. The rest of it though? The bunnies demanded it be kept in-character. Very absurdly in-character and plot-intensive for what was supposed to be a simple, damned PWP. Bunnies lie, I tell you this now. In interest in keeping this from getting even more out of control than it already has, I'm not going to waste a long build-up explaining the last five or so years since the events in "Angelus" (which I'll recap sufficiently so actual reading of the doujinshi isn't necessary) We'll just say things went differently, Ed got Al restored at least, and did not end up across the Gate, and so far things are still status quo more or less in the military. Please remember, the setting and history I'm working off'a? Comes from a doujinshi. Which are usually just this side of the WTF line if not way the hell over with headlong abandon anyway.
I also blame Al. Al pwnz everybody. Al demanded fluffy gen screentime with his brother. When Al demands, Al gets.
Dedication: Thanks to yuuo for being an enabler who made this pairing grow on me and all the encouragement and listening to me bitch about the lying, tricksy plotbunny. And for bleedingsand for listening to me babble about it, and for a parting and birthday gift. Yes, it's for both of you, and since it turned into such a complicated and long PornWithPlot (tricksey little bunnieses) you two can share. XP ♥
