Title: Pieces of Me
Series: Paper Walls
Fandom: Fullmetal Alchemist
Pairings: Lan Fan/Winry Rockbell, Izumi Curtis/Sig Curtis
Warnings: Modern AU, meet the family, angst, canon-typical violence, canon-typical gore, dying character,
Summary: Okay, so maybe bringing her girlfriend home over spring break to meet her family hadn't been Winry's brightest idea, but, in her defence, she'd just wanted everyone she loved to meet once.
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: For FMA Rarepair Week on tumblr. Today's prompts included Modern AU and "I have a confession to make.".
Originally meant as a dinner with the family sort of thing, for tomorrow's prompt, but it ended up not really fitting, in the end, and since today has a helpful 'Modern AU' prompt...
This is sort of a prequel to Forgiveness is a Gift, but you don't need to read either one to enjoy the other. I'll do my best to fill in the backstory in the fic, but if you're confused, go ahead and ask. (I somehow ended up with a fuck-tonne of backstory for this universe, ugh. ^^; )
Age-wise, Winry and Ed are 17, and Lan Fan and Al are 16. Winry's on her second year of undergrad, Ling's in his first year, Al's trying to catch up on secondary studies, and Ed's insane. (He's on the first year of his PhD.) XD
This ended up focussing almost as much on Winry and Ed's relationship (friendship/siblings) as on Winry and Lan Fan's, sorry.
