    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. ]

    Summary

    “I—“ Izuku hesitated, gaping wordlessly, before admitting softly. “I don’t know. I just don’t want to go home. There’s nothing for me, there.”

    “So you filled this hole by playing detective— And how long is that going to last, I wonder?” Stain replied, still massaging his chin. “But you— You have potential.”

    Izuku blinked at Stain’s chest, before looking up. “Excuse me?”

    “What a waste would it be, to let you become a red splatter on the sidewalk.” Stain continued, almost contemplating. “No. No, kid, what you need is a new purpose. Your old one is gone? Well, time to get off your ass and find something else—“

    Summary

    Navigating your 20s is not easy. There’s a lot of uncertainty about the future – your job, your home, your partner. But Izuku’s been blessed with a little piece of his soul on the outside, in the form of a hare daemon, to help him figure these things out. He won’t let a villain with a nasty Quirk get the better of them – he’s Hero Deku, after all.
