Wow... I almost cried when I saw that episode with the lanturn, and revisiting the subject was definatly agreat idea. I also like how you metioned "well oiled hinges", signifying that it's not a simple gesture but somthing that she puts a lot of work into. Great job!

Theme 10 – Love or like?

“Do you love her?” Al asked him once, during one of his and Winry’s rare visits to Dublith. Ed choked on his bite of fish, coughing spasmodically, and it took several good whacks on the back and a swig of water out of a contritely offered canteen to get him breathing again.

When things had calmed down, the brothers sat gazing out across the lake again, dangling their legs over the edge of the cliff, while Ed thought over the question carefully. If Winry had been there with them, he might have answered differently; but she understood her old friends and their close bond very well, and had stayed behind at Izumi’s to make herself useful at the butcher shop, while the brothers caught up on things with a few days’ trip to Jack Island.

So it was just Al and him, and he could afford to be perfectly honest without causing himself any trouble. For that matter, ten years ago the question would have been much more loaded; but Al’s childhood crush on Winry had mellowed into a simpler, fiercely loyal affection. The worst he could expect if Al didn’t like his answer was a punch in the face, and that was normal, and quite tolerable compared to the guilt of possibly breaking his brother’s far-too-tender heart.

The sun sank toward the horizon and the waves beat a slow, soft rhythm against the shore as they sat in companionable silence, gnawing their roasted fish down to the bones. Ed thought over the last twenty-something years, from childhood play, to the searing pain and absolute trust of automail surgery, to the uncountable hours of teasing and talking over repairs, to the years of loneliness in another world, missing her smile as much as the limbs she’d given him. He weighed her bossiness and selfishness and eccentricity and occasional bouts of violence, against her cheerfulness and natural empathy and mechanical genius and the way her fingers lingered in his hair when she kissed him. And he thought of the utter contentment of knowing that, when this trip was over and they paddled their boat back to the shore, she would be waiting for him, ready to set out on their travels again. Together.

“Yeah,” he said at last, tossing the stick that held the remains of his dinner into the lakewater that moved sunset-red below them, and turned to his brother with a smile. “You know, I think I do.”

She remembers the way her inexplicably riveted gaze slid unbidden
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
for the first time, in an entirely new way, that Ed was a

Theme 11 – “Is it okay to cry?”

The problem was not that Edward never cried.

Winry had watched him cry after his mother’s death until he had no tears left and the sobs came dry and hard and shook his small frame like the ravages of a disease. She’d seen him weeping brokenly after they’d survived her kidnapping, his hands over his eyes as if he could blot out a world where madmen stole children and sliced them apart in front of each other, feeding on their fear. It was her hand that wiped away the tears that squeezed grudgingly from his tightly-shut eyes, while the calibrating jolts rocked his nerves until they burned raw and he convulsed helplessly on the surgical table. And she heard clearly the tears choking at the back of his throat as he screamed his fury at the well-meaning friends who had kept the secret of Hughes’ death from him.

No, the problem was not that Edward didn’t cry. But his tears were always in and of the moment, a violent outpouring that occurred only when his emotions had swelled to the overflowing point. Edward cried openly and freely, but if given the chance to think first, he swallowed his tears, forcing them back down to distill inside him like the poisonous stone he was pouring his life into finding.

And that was what frightened Winry. Not the streaked and swollen face that followed his mother’s death, but the exhausted and grimly calm one that he presented at her funeral, clutching his brother’s hand and staring at nothing. Edward bottled up his grief until it forced its way free in those rare moments of mindless shock, bursting out in an explosion of pent-up stress and anger and pain, so that he cried until he could hardly breathe and then wiped his face and tucked down the corners of his dignity and started the whole destructive process over again.

She hated it, and that was why she cried for him, hoping that something in her tears would release the pain perpetually building inside him. He did it to be strong, she knew; to put on a brave face for Alphonse, and to keep himself safe from a world that preyed on the small and the weak. He was already small, bless his poor heart. He could not afford to be weak, and she knew it. But she could at least show him her own weakness; and perhaps someday he would understand.

With her, he was safe.

And with her, it was okay to cry.

Theme 12 – Lucky charm

He picked it off the sidewalk in a moment of confusion, matching it to the other screws in his arm with a puzzled frown. It was still wet with ice water from the truck that had taken her away. The sun glinted from its curved head like a bright spark, setting off a leap of logic that saved her life.

He tucked it in his pocket before he ran off in hot pursuit of her, and later when he was tied helpless and bleeding among the slaughtered pigs, he stretched shaking fingers out to pull it free, forcing himself to scratch the array slowly into his metal bonds with its sharp tip, as fear hammered wild and sour at the back of his throat.

When all was over and done and he’d cried himself empty on the steps outside and slept the sleep of the broken in a borrowed bed, he dragged himself back there, ducking under the layers of police tape and walking among the frozen carcasses until he reached the spot where his blood still spattered the floor. The screw was there, too, rolled up against one of the table legs. He’d poured out his pain and fear and blood and tears to rescue the girl to whom it belonged. He picked it up gingerly, rolling it between his fingers as he left the slaughterhouse behind him like a bad dream.

He kept it in his pocket, after that day when it saved both their lives. Sometimes he took it out to roll it in his hand again, the metal ridges calming in their familiarity, but mostly he just left it safe in his pocket, tucked in a corner where it wouldn’t fall out and get lost. It remained there like a stone in his shoe, always reminding him of how useful she was to him, and how precious.

*Imagines Al punching Ed after #10*

AlWin! AlWin!! J/K! tongue.gif

Hehe.. I wondered why that talk never came up in the series... I guess they were always too busy with other issues.

#11 and #12 were great too. I wouldn't think Ed the type for lucky charms, but Winry might bring that out in him.

Very lovely, as always! #11 was most certainly my favorite, espically the words you used to describe it all. Just... beautiful. I really love how you weave your words together. I envy your talent for it! More please! happy.gif
