October Prompt: Screaming

Prompt :Screaming
Fandom: Fullmetal Alchemist
Character:  Ed Elric
Word Count: 147

Screaming, Edward Elric never screamed. Automail connections were painful, so painful adult men avoided the surgery. Yet Edward Elric accepted the pain head on. Physical pain never bothered him. He was accustomed to it. The automail was hard on his physical body. There were times his nerves screamed in anguish as the machinery misfired.

Yet Edward never screamed.  He gritted his teeth and held it in like a real man should.

Men never screamed to do so was weak.  Physical toughness was Edward’s strength. He could face any challenge head on.

He was only weak in his dreams. It was only then did he feel the pain. His heart was heavy, and he couldn’t hide from his sins. Mother was always there, and gate loomed over him, it’s slithering tendrils hungry for his soul. Edward would scream then.

He could only run from himself for so long.

“Johnny? What are you doing up here?” Reed came to the top of the building where Johnny was leaning on the edge overlooking the city. “Susan said you might be up here so I thought I’d check. Are you okay?” It wasn’t often Reed and Johnny had these chats alone but while Reed was here he thought he’d make the effort. Maybe he could help.

September prompt
Edward Elric
Fandom: Fullmetal Alchemist
287 words
Prompt:Proverb : “Absence makes the heart grow fonder.”


Never look back had been his motto for years. It was easy in the past Edward Elric never cared about the people and places he visited to mind losing them. He had burnt down his house, abandoned his own world, and kept going, not once letting himself remember what he had lost.

<lj-cut>
He stood in the full length mirror and looked up and down at his reflection skeptically. The pants were tight, and the shirt was too frilly for his liking. The waistcoat was too elegant and detailed and the frock coat was too dressy. Nothing fit his style. With a frown Edward buttoned his cuffs, and examined the gold cuff links provided by the butler. He wasn’t used to dressing up. He liked his simple derby suit, and waistcoat.  All of these layers and clothing made dressing a chore. Turning a little, he fastened his collar and bow tie. Besides, the idea of dressing up for a total stranger bothered him. Truth was he’d rather just be himself than make the effort to get to know a bunch of new faces again. It was meaning less to him.


Al said they needed to just accept it, and never look back.

Edward was just homesick. He missed his friends. He missed Munich, and Hughes. All he could do was think about Alfons and the people they left behind. Two years was a long time for a man who never looked back and stayed in one place very long.

But now, for the first time, he realized how much he longed for the people he left.
He could no longer never look back. In the end, you knew what you’re missing. Absence did make the heart grow fonder.

It was in that split second Johnny had to make a choice.

His sister or his friend.

Normally when people are faced between picking a friend or a family member the person will nine times out of ten go for the family but in a job like this Reed had told him to work as a team but if the threat becomes to great do what he must. Seeing Susan thrown back against the wall he felt himself shiver at the sound of the thud as she hit the floor. This guy was huge. There was no way anyone human could have strength like that. Something was up but none of them had any idea yet. It wasn’t till Johnny and Ben suggested the old fashioned hit first and ask questions later that Reed finally agreed to get him. Although even through the fighting you could tell Reed’s actions were more studying then fighting.

Prompt:
* They're called boobs, Ed. - Erin Brockovich


Edward Elric stood motionless in the small apartment kitchen and stared blankly at the room across from him. Noa’s room, and he hadn’t realized she had been dressing when he entered. He never even considered it. Women, especially Roma women, were very private people... female people, in fact.

Sitting on the sofa she cradled her son in her arms and smiled as she watched him reach up with his tiny balled hand and grasp at the air as he yawned slowly, stirring after a short sleep. He was still so wrinkled and there were times Juno couldn’t help but compare him to a little old man, tiny and wrinkled, seeming as though he’d been left in the bath for too long. But then he’d been growing in liquid for the past 9 months. Glancing up she looked over at Mutt who was busy watching TV and she shook her head and looked back down at her son.

He was perfect.Collapse )

Always care about your flowers and your friends. Otherwise they'll fade, and soon your house will be empty

Angel sat at the kitchen table in the new house they’d bought with a pen in her hand and a piece of paper before her. Softly she tapped the end of the pen against the table as she began to try and think of the people she could invite to the wedding to sit at her side of the church. The only family she had was her father and he would be walking her down the aisle. Both her mother and Nan were dead and she had no other family. She then thought of her friends, those she’d not seen in a long time is felt..

FriendsCollapse )
