Courage So Rare

Amazing cover graphic made by [livejournal.com profile] seryan.

It is curious that physical courage should be so common in the world and moral courage so rare. ~ Mark Twain

An AU of the 2003 series, including some elements from Brotherhood.

(1) Knowledge In Pursuit: The military’s newest State Alchemist was a genius. And a prodigy. And a brat.

(2) Even To Live: All in all, Roy thought he’d rather face rogue chimera than accept help from the specialist Central had sent.

(3) What Is Demanded of Genius: When half of Central HQ went up in flames late one night, the military focused on the obvious suspect.

(4) Pleases the Eyes Only: Elric’s temper had gotten him into trouble again. Getting him out of it would require a bit of creativity on Roy’s part.

(5) The Outcome of Despair: Roy had been so busy wanting to strangle the kid that he’d forgotten that they all had reasons for accepting the military’s leash.

(6) The Worst Cowardice: Maes had always had a knack for making Roy confront uncomfortable truths.

(7) Build Your Wings: Plotting high treason was a delicate game; Edward was a dangerously unpredictable complication.

(8) More Important Than Fear: Edward’s knowledge of alchemy was encyclopedic, but his grasp of tactics was far less so.

(9) Passing Contentment: There was no array to repair the pieces of a shattered life.
