I finally decided to add my own two cents since it'd be ludicrous if I didn't... tongue.gif

Hmm, if anyone's already read this on Fanfiction.net they might encounter some tiny changes. I tried getting rid of the blah's so I'd end up with a smooth little one-shot/drabble, but things didn't really work out... kaka...

THAT THING WE USED TO DO

by Omakase Shimasu


"Let's do that thing we used to do, 'Niisan."

Fleeting rustle of cotton against leather. "Al... You can't be serious!" The alto voice lowered to an urgent whisper. "We're on a train."

Metal scraping against metal. "I know that, 'Niisan. But you were looking bored and I thought this would be a fun way to relieve that boredom."

"Well, what if someone comes in and sees us? Chances are word about it will reach Mustang's ears somehow and he'll never let me hear the end of it!"

Silence. Then...

"We never got disturbed during these train rides before. Maybe this car has been rented out especially for us."

"But what if it hasn't?" A frustrated exhale. "Look, I'm sorry Al, but I don't feel like taking that risk. Mustang's been on my case ever since day one and I don't think adding fuel to the flame will make matters any easier."

Uncomfortable silence. Which stretched. And stretched. And stretched.

Big sigh. "Al... what am I going to do with you?"

A distinct smile in the boy's voice. "'Niisan..."

"Yeah, yeah. Just tell me how you're going to..." Rustling of cotton again. "I mean, you don't have your..." Slump. "I... I'm sorry, Al..."

"It's okay, 'Niisan." Reassuring. A soft creak, before leather tapped against metal. "I can always use this horn, see?"

A quick gasp. "Y-your horn?! Al, that's--"

"You can always use Alchemy to soften the point. It wouldn't be fair to you otherwise." Air of suspicion. "You didn't think I would--"

Splutter. "O-of course not!" Mumble, mumble. "So what do you propose to use anyway? I've got nothing on me and I bet you don't either."

"Mmmmm... Ah! We can use those spare oil tubes Winry gave you for the maintenance of your arm!"

"Oh, forgot about those." Rustle, rustle. A soft grunt afterwards. "Here they are... they're both still filled to the brim."

"Un."

"...but where are we going to do this? These seats-"

Clanking and creaking.

"The aisle?"

"Un. That way we can chose between doing it on the floor or standing."

Resigned sigh. "OK, Al. Let's do it and get it over with... But I swear, if Mustang gets wind of this--"

"Too late, Hagane no." Snap!

Sergeant Fury couldn't keep from wincing as Colonel Roy Mustang viciously fried his equipment to cinders. A puff of black smoke circled the air around the unrecognizable heap of black dust, spiraling in the air until it dispersed and eventually disappeared. The young soldier barely managed to swallow the cry that wanted to be let out so badly. It had only been a prototype sent from HQ to be tested afterall. If word got out...

"Sergeant Fury."

Fury jumped and managed a stiff salute. "Y-yes, sir!"

"The listening devices were plagued by a bug. Dispose of this mess immediately." Without waiting for a response, ("Sir!") Roy turned and took his leave. An onimous sign of a thundercloud could almost be made out directly above the man's head if one looked closely enough.

The bespectacled soldier slumped in his chair, far too rattled for the moment to begin the task of cleaning up the junk his superior had left behind. "Whe... ah..."

2nd Lieutenants Breda and Havoc popped up from behind the listening device (or rather what was left of it). "Wonder what crawled up the Colonel's shorts all of a sudden..." Breda asked no one in particular.

The tall blond next to him smirked around his ever-present cancer stick. "Trouble in Paradise, what else?"

A dark chuckle escaped the robust man. "If that's the case I really don't envy Edward at the moment."

Meanwhile, on a train headed for East City, Edward sneezed, thereby officially losing an innocent little game of 'who could balance the oil tube on their nose the longest.'

"That's not fair, somebody talked about me behind my back! I demand a rematch!"

"But 'Niisan if that's true than you would be constantly sneezing all over the place."

"Don't tease your big brother, Al!"

"'Niisan..."

I was passing through and saw the title of this thread and thought "that sounds so familiar!" then I saw your name ^^

Good job with the tweaking! I ought to write fanfics too, but... I dunno ff.net depresses me... too many mary-sues, yaoi/shounen-ai haters, etc. l0l. Well, hope to see more fics from you soon, Kase! laugh.gif
Omakase Shimasu
Aaaaw, you still remembered. My one-shot feels loved. Thanks! ^.^

It would be a great idea to start your own website. They really deserve their own corner of the Internet. biggrin.gif That way, the people on FF.net that bug you won't get the chance to anymore. And I (plus so many others besides me) wouldn't be deprived of your wonderful updates! X]

I'll definitely try~ -xxx- (<-- oooh, how girly)

Oh, that was brilliant. Every time I come on this site I feel more and more driven to actually create an account for some odd reason.

Funny. Every time I come here I leave feeling more and more like a pervert. Why do I automatically think these things...hmph.

Very good, though, all the same. I laughed out loud, quite literally. Keep writing, and anyone who frowns upon yao can shove it up their...ahem. Nevermind. Let's just leave it at "Keep writing, you're seriously good at this stuff".

That was cute. I especially liked the game it ended up being. So random and so perfect. I feel sorry for Feury though. The poor kid. ^^

Thank you! biggrin.gif And please do! We're really not as bad as we sometimes make the newbies believe.

The greatest of all compliments. wink.gif I achieved my goal of perversifying the reader.

=^-^= One night I woke up from a sound sleep and was hit by the dreaded plot bunny. I couldn't get it out of my head so I scribbled down the plot and left the actual writing for the following day. So, behold: my very first spontaneous one-shot~! biggrin.gif Glad you enjoyed and took the time to comment!

PS: you're the first to comment about Fury! ;] (I feel bad for not including Falman...)

tee hee hee! i thought from the description that it might be smutty, but in fact, it was ever so cute!
Omakase Shimasu
laugh.gif Really? I try to avoid smut pieces, because I don't have any experience regarding the real deal. tongue.gif I'm glad you enjoyed it though and thanks for the nice comment. smile.gif
