Wow. I really liked "Dog". I always wondered why they never explained what happened to Den... the series just about explained averything else.

Silly Ed! Falling asleep on big books just like when he used to study with his brother at home... You'd figure he'd just check a few of the darn things out, bring them home, and read them from cover to cover... Ah, for Ed, old habits die hard.

I would have had a hard time resisting petting those long golden lockes of his...

Hehe... *Imagines a golden Ed moth*

Theme 6 – Always right

Her eyebrows are pursed together in dismay as she surveys the mess in front of her, setting aside the newly-detached cover grill with a clank. “Oh, for heaven’s sake, Ed,” Winry mutters, already reaching for wiresnips and tweezers. “How do you manage to do these things? I’m going to have to rewire half of this, the insulation is completely ruined…”

She continues to mutter to herself, leaning close to pick out the fragments of sand driven into every crevice of the inside of his arm.

Ed sighs. It was a stupid mistake, really. The grill worked its way loose after one too many transmutations into his usual blade, and his latest mission ended with him fighting his way through a miniature alchemical whirlwind of sand and dirt. His arm didn’t give out until three days later, as the gritty stuff that got into the casing chewed its way slowly through the rubber insulation on the wires, eventually short-circuiting everything from the elbow down.

“…such an idiot…” he hears Winry grumbling. He’s noticed she only really explodes over the life-threatening damage. The rest of the time it’s just a long string of irritated insults, dissecting every stupid thing he’s done to her masterwork, as she recognizes sign after sign of poor maintenance and neglect scratched into the metal.

Closing his eyes, he remembers Maria Ross’s concerned face hovering beside his hospital bed after the fifth-laboratory incident, as he worked his way through another tasteless dinner.

“You try so hard to be strong,” his escort had commented, watching him struggle to finish the meal. “For your brother…for those you work with in the military…even for the people you help on your travels. You can’t afford to let down that guard of yours for even a minute. Isn’t it…difficult, having to be always right?”

The tweezers clink in an irritated rhythm against the edge of the access hatch, harmonizing with the steady ting-ting-ting of bits of sand hitting the dish where Winry is collecting them, with a pause now and then as she snips away length after length of unsalvageable wire. Ed smiles slightly and leans back in his chair, basking in her perfectly truthful accusations.

“…could have just double-checked the grill once or twice a month, but nooo…”

“Yeah, yeah, I know,” he says at last, as she cuts away the last of the ruined wires and tosses it in the trash. “You’re right. I’ll be more careful, okay?”

Winry gives him a suspicious little frown, but nods and reaches for the oil, tapping careful drops into his sand-blasted joints. Ed settles back and relaxes, ready for a long wait and not especially minding.

She may think he’s a reckless, brainless fool…but Ed will never take for granted this peculiar luxury she gives him: to simply, and without consequence, be wrong.

down the curves of his back, slowly, like honey. And she particularly remembers
the rush of prickly heat, the unfamiliar melting sensation that made her duck
her head to hide a blush that caught her entirely by surprise; as she realized

Awwww! That is so cute! I've read all of these themes so far, and all of them are terrific. My favorites are "Library" and "Dog". What a great fanfic, I can't wait for the next one.

Theme 7 – It’s kind of a fight…

“I said, you’re not coming,” Ed insisted for the eighth time, setting his battered leather suitcase on the kitchen floor to turn and glare at Winry where she stood calmly behind him, a canvas duffel bag slung over her shoulder.

“We’ve been over this, Ed,” she said, with a too-patient sigh. “You’re not the only one who can’t stand being cooped up in Resembool any more. I’ve heard enough stories from you boys. I want to see some of these places before I settle down.”

“I don’t think so,” Ed growled, crossing his arms. “You know me, Winry, I’m a magnet for trouble. It’s too dangerous. Stay home.”

It was the wrong thing to say. Winry’s eyes flashed, and she let the duffel slip to the floor with a thump, taking a few brisk steps towards him. Edward’s stubborn bravado slipped somewhat, and he shrank back a step...

But instead of diving for a wrench, Winry pushed her left sleeve back, holding out her arm for him to see.

“Two years ago,” she said, rattling it off like a statistic. “A barfight in Rush Valley. Some drunken thug wanted me to work on something other than his automail.”

Ed squinted at her forearm, realized for the first time that there were several pale, ragged scars running across it. Before he could say anything, Winry dropped her sleeve and pulled up the hem of her shirt, exposing her lower ribs and a few whitish puckers between them.

“Three years and two months ago,” she said. “Paninya got in a scrape with some rowdy tourists and I had to step in and help. We laid ‘em out on their asses.” She chuckled, tracing her fingertips over the marks.

Ed’s jaw had long since dropped. “You’ve been getting in fights?!”

Winry’s answer was to tug down the zipper of her shirt a few inches and pull it open on one side to show him a stretched, pinkish burn mark that spread over her collarbone.

“Eighteen months ago,” she said, grimly. “Some two-bit alchemist, swindling a town near Rush Valley by…pretending to be you.”

Ed stared. “You took on an alchemist?”

“I think he’s still got wrench-marks in his skull,” Winry said. “My aim, as it turns out, is just as good on fake Elrics.” There was a whisper of something bitter behind her eyes, and he wondered what it had done to her, thinking maybe he’d returned only to find some bozo masquerading under his name…

“I guess you’ve been a bad influence,” Winry said, her smile turning flippant. “So, what do you think?”

“I think,” Ed said, looking at his old friend with new eyes, “that you need somebody with some common sense to keep you out of trouble, you public menace.”

“Well, that rules you out, then,” Winry scoffed. “Unless you’re planning on going off to menace the public together?”

Picking up his suitcase, Ed grinned broadly.

“Amestris will never know what hit it.”

Theme 8 – No problem

He’s curled in a miserable ball, hidden in the reeds, when she wades over with a little bundle of wet red cloth in her hand.

“Ed?” she calls, and follows the sound of him squirming further into the water at her approach.

Looking around, she sees a few reeds quiver, and heads toward them.

“I know you’re back there, dummy.”

“Leave me alone!” It’s a peevish little hiccup of a shout.

She giggles. “Don’t you want your trunks back? I fished ‘em out for you.”

There’s a pause, and then a small, muddy hand pokes its way out of the long grasses.

“Don’t you dare peek.”

Winry wrinkles her nose in disgust. “Oh, yuck, Ed,” she scolds him, edging close enough to slap the wet fabric into his hand, which whisks away behind the reeds again. “That’s gross. I don’t want cooties.”

“Oh, thanks a lot,” he mutters. The reeds wave wildly now, and she waits patiently, tracing patterns in the running water with her fingertips.

“What?” she complains. “You’re a boy, aren’t you? I didn’t look in the first place,” she hurries to add. Ed is usually exempt from the category of cootie-carrying boys, but the danger multiplied tenfold the minute his swim trunks bobbed to the surface sans occupant.

“Well, good,” Ed grumbles, emerging from the reeds all smeared with river mud from hiding in the shallows, his trunks cinched tightly around his waist. “I’m going home.”

Winry blinks. “How come?”

“I can’t go back out there now!” Ed insists hotly. “They’re gonna laugh at me more!”

“Oh, for pete’s sake, Ed,” Winry says, hands on her hips. “If they do I’ll punch ‘em in the nose.”

“You’ll get in trouble,” Ed says, since being defended by a girl is sissy stuff but telling her so would put his nose on the receiving end of that punch. “I’m just gonna go home.”

Winry wrinkles her nose. “Fine,” she says, “but I’m coming with.”

“If you want.” It’s a casual acceptance, since it’s just as sissy to want a sympathetic companion with whom to trudge the soggy road of disgrace. Al’s still having a good time, and he doesn’t want to ruin that by dragging him off early just because his big brother was a snorking idiot today.

As they clamber up over the bank of the river, bare feet sinking thickly in the mud, she slings a companionable arm around his shoulders. “I thought it was a great cannonball,” she tells him cheerfully. “Nobody else swung half as high on that dumb old rope.”

“Nobody else lost their shorts,” he grumbles, and she smothers her giggle as they turn their steps homeward. Ed’s dignity is a fragile thing, after all.

“Aw, it was no big deal,” she says instead, and he manages a bit of a smile.

“Thanks, Winry.”

She smiles back. “No problem.”

Theme 9 – Only

The last light of evening is fading golden between the mountains to the west, and she stands watching it from the doorway with an unlit candle in her hand. The wind rushes past and ruffles her hair against her cheek, sending a shiver down her back through the thin fabric of her shirt, but she doesn’t turn to go inside.

Not yet.

Her eyes are fixed on the point on the horizon where the road dips out of sight. It’s barely visible by now, a slightly darker ribbon against the dusky curve of the hillside, winding its way through the flat fields and then up the hill like a stepladder to the cool eternity of the darkening night sky.

He’s out there somewhere, she believes. Paying his night at some faraway inn with the work of two hands pressed swiftly together and down, perhaps, or dozing in a tangle of limbs, metal and flesh, on the plush seat of a softly swaying train speeding through the darkness. Or even standing in a doorway, somewhere, gazing with those sunbright eyes at some distant dim horizon, the curve of his cheek lit softly by the same arch of velvet sky.

He’s not dead. She somehow can’t believe it, no matter what they’ve stamped on his record in Central. They gave up too quickly, those military idiots. It’s only been a year. She takes her waiting day by day, and each day is a new star of hope.

Her fingers curl around the splintery wood of the match in her pocket, and she strikes it against the doorframe, setting it to the candle wick with care and watching as the little blue-orange flame sputters and melts away the wax. The wick catches and chars brown, then black, brightening the shadows that have grown up around her.

She gives a last plaintive look to the empty horizon, then sets the candle carefully inside the lantern hung on the outside wall, swinging the tiny door shut on well-oiled metal hinges. It will wait for him here while she sleeps, safe from the wind.

She is careful to close the front door tightly behind her. There’s no reason to be disappointed. He’ll come over that horizon, one of these days.

She’ll wait as long as it takes him. After all, it’s only another day.
