Rating: Mature
Pairings: Edward Elric/Roy Mustang
Warnings: Ed's potty mouth, canon-typical violence, pile 'o OCs, minor battering of female OC, female-specific slurs, off-screen torture of prisoners, suggestion of past abusive sexual encounters, sexual discussions (including consent-related)
Summary: When Drachma agrees to meet for peace talks at Briggs Fortress, General Roy Mustang is the one sent to represent Amestris. It just so happens that the Drachmans have their own Amestrisan, who is far too skilled at turning the most tedious of discussions into an exciting time.

A/N: So, a couple people asked about Blenheim, and I never actually got his reasons into the fic, though it's outlined in my notes, so... He's got two younger sisters with families of their own, and he spoils his nieces and nephews something awful. Vickers knew he'd never make it down to Central undetected on his own, so he told Blenheim he would kill his family if he didn't cooperate. And Blenheim, who knows more about Vickers than any of the rest of us, 100% believed him and knew protective custody wouldn't stop Vickers, so he came along.
Blenheim is actually not a bad guy, really, he just made some bad life choices in keeping quiet about how potentially unstable his boss is, and now he's paying for it. (Ho boy, does he ever pay for it.)

Eh, this chapter is a little shorter than the rest, but it was an excellent ending point. :P

Thanks for coming along for the ride! I hope everyone enjoys this chapter as much as they have the rest of the fic! I'll see this fandom again once my NaNo piece is ready for posting! ;)

A/N: So, that shit you lot have been waiting to hit the fan? Enjoy. XD

In this chapter, I sort of tackle Cretan and Aerugonian alchemy. Sort of. Aerugonian stuff was pulled out of my arse, Cretan stuff was borrowed – visually – from the Milos film. (I spent a day hunting down canon arrays and looking between the Amestrisan arrays and the Milos arrays and just...the fuck. You'll see.)
Related, the Milos film isn't canon for the fic. Mostly because I'm not a fan of it – the art is kind of off-putting, imo, and where they suggest it fits into the continuity has never made sense to me – but also so I could write that scene. XD

A/N: I got a bit stuck partway through this chapter and got distracted by another FMA fic project for a while. Ed's the PoV for that fic, and getting back into Roy's headspace wasn't near as easy as I'd like to joke. So if it reads odd at all, that's why. Sorry.

A/N: Scene of a sexual nature near the end of this chapter, mild enough that I felt safe putting it on FFN. XD
Unmarked because I suck that way.

A/N: Ah~ I'm so glad people like Anya!! :D

Not sure how I feel about Ed and Roy's little get together scene, after a reread, but I'm kind of too lazy to try and figure out how to rewrite it, so... This is what you get. (Related: I've mentioned, I'm sure, that these two boys are fucking idiots. *rolls eyes*)

A/N: Rehashing a bit of last chapter, since it was cut the middle of a scene. :/
This chapter ends at an actual scene break, on the other hand. Small victories.

Our minor female battering, slurs, and off-screen prisoner torture are all in this chapter. I'd like to say I'll mark it, but it all sort of serves as important plot points – except for the torture, which is why I didn't write that :P – so...sorry? I promise none of these ladies take anything laying down.

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.

A/N: This fic spawned from a scene I cut from From the Worst of Times (yes, imagine, that monster could have been even longer). This fic has the same general background and cast of OCs – I reused everyone because half of them were already fleshed out in my head, and the other half didn't take long to give backstories – but this is not a sequel. Central Command did not get blown up, and Roy and Ed aren't together. (Yet.)
So you don't have to read FtWoT to read this, but you certainly may.

This fic involves Drachma, which I based on Imperial Russia. I tried to stick to historical fact – so, you know, no sorcerers rising from the dead to carry out their vengeance on the Romanov line – but I am by no means an historian and a lot of my knowledge is drawn from Wikipedia, because I am lazy and by the time I gave up on this being a one-shot, I'd already written almost 30K, so...
The handful of Russian in the story is thanks to Google Translate. If you're fluent and want to correct me, I'm happy to make any changes. :) Please do note, however, that I'm using the Latin alphabet instead of the Cyrillic because this is from Roy's PoV, and he doesn't know the Cyrillic alphabet, so he's hearing Drachman in the closest Latin-alphabet equivalent.

Tried to make Roy slightly less of an emotionally stunted mess, but I'm pretty sure I failed. (I wonder, sometimes, if it wouldn't be better if I was writing from Ed's PoV, but then, he's had his feelings beat into him by a third party and he's picked avoidance as a strategy, so... Both of these boys are idiots.)

This chapter ends in a weird place, because I'd originally intended another one-shot, and then gave up, but there were no good chapter cuts. :/

This fic is completed at 11 chapters. I'll be updating every other day, so the last chapter will go up on 17 November, for those who prefer to read the whole fic in one go. (Plan a large chunk of time; this is over 90K words, according to Word. *ded*)
