    Summary

    Work in progress. "Search for the value of that which you seek, for alchemy already knows." Alchemy knew what Edward wanted when his fingertips touched that circle, but Edward did not yet understand how value differs from price, how equivalent differs from equal. The Gate calculates with one small difference, and Trisha Elric lives - but the cost may be too high for Edward to afford.

    [ Originally published on FFN 16 June 2009. A very detailed, very slow exploration of the creators' headcanon through Edward's eyes - and sometimes Roy's - with lengthy discourses on alchemical theory, juicy helpings of political intrigue, a few near-death experiences here and there, and maybe an assassination attempt or two. Explores in detail the political and social spheres of Amestris and beyond in the context of Roy's ladder-climbing, aided by Edward's presence as a researcher. You could consider this a fix-it, but it's more like a highly involved worldbuilding reboot. Long-running, takes time between updates, but chapters are 20-30k long. Be prepared to indulge and suspend your disbelief. Leave canon at the doorstep; this is something else entirely. ]

    Bookmarker's Notes

    A lot of the plot stuff I didn't like about this one. Although, much like other Doctor Who fics, I like how there is the running of gag of David Tennant being mistaken for the other roles he's played. My advice is to read this one if you're really bored and DO NOT READ THE SEQUAL.

    I really don’t want to spoil what happens, but I think that this one has beaten the Xmas one. It’s so good, please if you are an fma fan read this.

    Summary

    Crowley didn't appear to mind being kissed on the cheek by this unremarkable creature. In fact, he set down the contraption (kettle, Ligur thought, his brain finally catching up), gave a resigned sigh, and leaned into the contact with easy familiarity.

    He added to the conundrum by tilting his head and kissing Aziraphale on the mouth.

    Ligur tried desperately to make sense of this information. Was Crowley working on some kind of elaborate, long-term seduction? That wasn't his style, though, working hands on with single-minded determination until his hapless target cracked. As Ligur recalled, Crowley went in for time-wasting annoyances on a large scale. Or at least that's how Hastur had explained it. He had mastered the mass application of Sloth.

    Summary

    He does not saunter vaguely downward so much as he plummets in a barely controlled spiral.

    He had felt it coming. Her Grace was slowly pulled from his body as if She was unraveling a loose string on an expensive sweater. He felt hot and cold all at the same time. There's a sudden stench of brimstone and butyric acid. The ground beneath him starts to grow hot. It's coming.

    "Crowley, love, I need you in here." His voice does not waver.

    Some of the chapters are really short but I like the Gabriel and Beelzebub relationship.
