A/N: I had a lot of trouble with the end of last chapter and the whole arrest and everything, honestly. Because I've known for chapters who was involved – kudos, btw, to everyone who guessed Evan – and how Ed was going to find out and all of that, but I never quite sorted the actual act of handling this giant clusterfuck. Whoops? I hope it's not nearly as cringe-worthy as I felt it was while writing the damn thing.

Panic attack triggered by a nightmare in the first scene.

A/N: Those of you who read From the Worst of Times may remember the Blooming Alchemist to be an Ed fan, but he's gone through some edits since that fic, so he no longer is. (That's now Quicksilver. XD) Same name – real and State Alchemist title – same specialisation, different personality.

Also, I have...no idea where this chapter went. I did not plan the madness at the end.

A/N: There is a side-story for this chapter, from Roy's PoV, which can be found, as always, on Archive of Our Own or LiveJournal. It's in the last scene, so best to read this entire chapter before going looking for it.

I love how well you lot know Ed. XD
While I was working on the guide for Ed's squad, I did one for my original State Alchemists. It includes a couple that showed up in From the Worst of Times, but not in this series (so far), and one from Dreaming in Red and Gold, who will appear in chapter 19 (I think?), so it's something of a pass-around guide. ^.^; It is, however, also full of spoilers for the characters' backstories, some of which you'll find out in the next couple of chapters, some of which you won't find out in this fic, so if you're a person who doesn't like being spoiled, best not to look at the guide. (Sorry. There wasn't really a good way to do a spoiler-free guide for them.)

A/N: Potential trigger-wise: there's (mostly, save for one slap and some rough handling) off-screen violence against a female OC in this chapter. I only had physical abuse in mind when I wrote the scene where Ed comes to find her, but it wouldn't be a stretch to assume sexual abuse, and I'm sorry if that makes anyone uncomfortable. I'd like to say I'll mark it and people can skip it, but it's kind of mixed in with the start of this chapter's climax, so... Ugh. Sorry? Just read with care when Heinkel gets Ed from their campsite, I guess.

A/N: The research for this chapter was the sort that makes one proud to be a writer, because there's little that's more fulfilling than knowing you're probably making someone at the NSA very nervous.

As promised, I put together a guide for the OCs, which you can find on Google Drive. Let me know if anyone has trouble viewing it and I'll throw a copy up on LiveJournal.
I will be going back and adding this link to the beginning of chapter 10. If there's somewhere else you'd like to see it, leave me a comment.

Couple of people have been having trouble with remembering Ed's squad, so I'll put together a listing tomorrow – today is con recovery – and put a link in the beginning of chapter 14.

A/N: Our mystery father and son duo return for their second and final (from the son's PoV) scene at the end of this chapter. Anyone wanna make any guesses who the son is? XD (Admittedly, after a read-through, I'm not 100% certain there's enough about the four possibilities for you lot to actually figure it out. *shifty*) It'll be a fair-few chapters before you find out for sure.

Related, I didn't expect the first of these to sound like the son was going to betray Ed, but some of the reviewers sounded like they took it that way? Whoops~

A/N: Okay, so, update on chapter 12, since it's supposed to go up while I'm at con: It'll go up at FFN fine, no problem, because I can do that from my mobile. Because of some crazy last-minute planning that went down this week, I'll have my computer with me (I hadn't intended to take it), so, as long as I can get someone to give me the info for our room's wifi, that chapter will go up everywhere on Saturday, but I honestly can't promise when I'll have it up. (It may actually end up being more of an 'early Sunday morning' thing. ^.^")
Either way, chapter 13 will be going up once I get home on Monday, and 12 will go up at the same time if I couldn't get it up somewhere while at con.

I had an hour of freetime, so you're getting 11 & 12 right now. 13 on Monday. (No one comes here, why does it matter? XP)

In other news, if anyone's attending Katsucon this weekend, lemme know and maybe we can find each other? I love the chance to meet people!

Summary: After the Promised Day, with his alchemy still intact thanks to Hohenheim's sacrifice, Ed finds himself and his chimera team getting dragged into the shadowy world of military secrets in an attempt to keep Bradley's legacy from causing a civil war.

A/N: This chapter has off-screen sexual relations between Ed and the chimeras. If you're feeling squicked... First off, how the hell'd you make it this far? Second off, it's off-screen, you'll live.

(You know, it sort of just occurred to me, but this world doesn't share our history, and being military-centric is not the same as being homophobic, despite how often in our world the two have been related. Which means I can make the Amestris military cool with homosexual relationships. XD)

There is another panic attack in this chapter, and Ed talks a bit about the very first one he had.

Unrelated: There's a scene in this chapter from an unknown PoV, which wrote itself and fit into the plot far too well to turn it into a side-story. You'll see. (Or maybe you won't. I dunno. XP)

There are two side-stories for this chapter, which can be found, as always, on Archive of Our Own or here on LiveJournal. One is Darius/Ed/Heinkel smut, but the other is a scene from Roy's PoV. (They are labelled to differentiate.) As a reminder, you may wish to read the whole chapter first, to avoid any confusion.

LAST! I've put together a guide for Ed's squad, which you can find here on Google Docs.

A/N: I know the generally accepted canon for Ed's birthday is 3rd Feb, because of the 2003 anime, but when I was figuring out my calendar for this series, I ended up picking a different date. Mostly because I see him as a Leo, but also because of terrible, horrible reasons.

Original character death (off-screen, but the fall-out is on-screen) is in this chapter and follows through the next few. And, fuck, I've known practically since they first showed up that I was going to be killing them, but I still cried when I was writing it. I'm sorry.

Posting way early here on LJ because, let's be honest, no one ever reads on here. Also, I have a crazy day tomorrow & posting on LJ always takes forever. (& I'm waiting for my boss to ring. So.)

A/N: Just as a note, trying to actually figure out how large Amestris is (aka, how long it would take to drive anywhere) is pretty much a guaranteed formula to bring me, at least, to tears. So, you know, I'm fudging this shit the whole way and don't fucking judge me. (Don't even get me started on figuring out max car speeds and, holy shit, train lines are just nightmares. Everything is bullshit.)

For the anon on FFN who joked that Wackett told Parnall about Ed's weak spot... He would actually have had the chance, and he didn't need to; Ed's well enough known that it really isn't hard to guess what can be used against him, and (you'll find out in this chapter) Parnall knows Roy.

A/N: Finally getting to the training. Sorry about the rush of OCs this chapter. Most of them you'll never see again, while others will show up sporadically over the rest of the series, but I did have to fill in some names.

Just a reminder that most of this training is pulled from information found on Wikipedia and the U.S. Army OCS site. If you see something completely bass-ackward, erm, sorry? This is an alternate world, so shit goes down a bit different, yeah? (Also, Ed. He is 100% my defence for anything that doesn't seem military. XP)

I wrote the appearance of the academy off the top of my head, then was rewatching OVA 4 a few chapters later for something else and realised I could have based everything on that and just...so much face-palming, you have no idea. So, the academy in this fic doesn't match that canon, just a head's up.

Summary: After the Promised Day, with his alchemy still intact thanks to Hohenheim's sacrifice, Ed finds himself and his chimera team getting dragged into the shadowy world of military secrets in an attempt to keep Bradley's legacy from causing a civil war.

A/N: Disclaimer: Everything I know about officer training came from Wikipedia and the US Army's OCS website. And, while the Fort Benning's site is a fucking train wreck, it did cough up something like a syllabus, so kudos to them.
Just, you know. That's where all my ideas are coming from.

There are a few of side-stories attached to this series (scenes from another PoV than Ed's, some of the not-EdRoy smut, etc), none of which are necessary enough to be in the fic itself, but I wrote them, so I figured I'd post them. The first one is from this chapter, and it's something from Roy's PoV, a scene that sort of gets brushed over, otherwise, without losing anything (I think).
The side-stories can only be found on Archive Of Our Own and LiveJournal, because I didn't really want to muck about with it on tumblr, and some of them can't go on FFN, so... Yeah. If you're interested, go for it – I'll always tell you when there's a side-story, though I suggest reading the whole chapter each one's attached to before hunting that side-story down – but I don't think you really lose anything without them.

A/N: So, here's the thing, everything I could find about recovering from muscle atrophy and malnourishment says Al should be pretty well recovered after five to six months. I went ahead and gave him seven before throwing him towards Izumi, though, because she's brutal and I'm nice. (Sometimes.)
Anyway, so, I get that in the series, Ed and Al didn't really have any future ideas right when they got back to Resembool, but they've already talked about the future in this fic, so they have no intention in cooling their heels for two years. Hell, they don't even last one year. But, you know, AU and all that, so... XD

A/N: A few time skips in this chapter, because I didn't feel like writing filler, so...

Also, so, I have this headcanon that Greed was omni-/pansexual, and because he's freaking Greed, he wants all of the sex in all of the ways and Ed and Darius and Heinkel were stuck with him for at least four months, so they got roped into a lot of weird orgies and shit. Given that, Ed's got a weird relationship with Darius and Heinkel, which shows in their interactions, especially in this part of the series. While I intend this series to eventually be Ed/Roy, you only get hints in this part. (Part two is when they'll actually get together.)

So, I admit, I waffled over the age of consent for a while. My American upbringing says 18, but given Amestris is loosely based on a mesh of Western European nations, and the age of consent there ranges from 14 to 16 (17 in Ireland), I settled on a soft 16 (technically, in the canon of this series, Ed was 15 the first time he had sex). That said, I don't intend to let Roy and Ed sleep together until Ed is at least the latter half of 17, if not 18.
Which isn't to say Ed is abstinent, because he's not. But Ed/Roy is the only porn you'll actually see on screen in the main part of this series. (Side-shots, however, will run the gambit, and I'll be posting those on AO3 and LiveJournal when the chapters they're attached to go up; more on that in chapter four.)

It occurs to me that I never actually added to the warnings that Ed suffers from panic attacks. (I swear it makes sense when you think about it; I'm surprised more of the characters don't have some sort of psychological disorder. Sort of. Okay, not really. There's way too much a stigma about that making people weak. :/ ) There's one in this chapter, and they'll be a bit sporadic throughout the series. I'll try to remember to put a note at the top of any chapter they show up in, but sorry in advance if I miss one.

Warnings: Ed's potty mouth, spoilers for FMA:B ending, canon-typical violence, pile 'o OCs, survivor's guilt, angst, original character death, slow build (btwn Ed & Roy), referenced underage relationships, off-screen violence against women
Summary: After the Promised Day, with his alchemy still intact thanks to Hohenheim's sacrifice, Ed finds himself and his chimera team getting dragged into the shadowy world of military secrets in an attempt to keep Bradley's legacy from causing a civil war.

Disclaim Her: This story is based on characters and situations created and owned by Arakawa Hiromu and various publishers. No money is being made and no copyright or trademark infringement is intended.
The first scene is pulled from the SquareEnix sub for episode 63 of the Brotherhood anime. It's not exact – I changed some of the wording because the translation's actually quite clunky, but the dub just sounds false to my ears ^.^" – and I changed part of it for the plot, but, yeah. Not mine. XD

A/N: Sometimes, you just need that headcanon where Ed didn't lose his alchemy after all, and I wasn't going to actually use the idea I had for why Ed kept his alchemy, mostly because I knew it would probably have to be Ed's PoV and I prefer Roy, except then my muse shoved the scene with Grumman (happens near the end of this chapter) in my face and wouldn't back off until I gave in and started writing it.
So this is it, and I have no idea where it's going, except that Ed is fucked with so much survivor's guilt and he decides to deal with it the same way he's always done, which is to help other people.

This was originally intended to be one long run of fic, but I was complaining to my mum about how long my NaNo fic was (took a break from this to write that) and she suggested splitting it, which wouldn't really work for the NaNo fic, but I realised it would work for this one. So part one is the first 20 chapters of what I had written. Part two is probably about a third done, and will probably remain that way until my NaNo fic is done. (Sorry, not sorry.) I have some tentative ideas for a part three, but you'll have to wait until I start posting part two to find out if that's gonna work out or not.

There's a fair bit of travelling around in this fic, and I ended up using Rairyuuken's map (found in their scraps folder on deviantArt) for most of my city names, because I'm too lazy to create my own map to keep track of which names I used for where.

Note about the pairings can be found in the second chapter's A/N, to keep this one from becoming any longer.

This fic of the series is complete and I will be posting one chapter every other day (with some potential oddities during my con over V-day weekend, sorry; more on that closer to that weekend). For those of you who refuse to read a fic until it's done, come back on the first of March.
