All My Dreams

Summary: Roy revels in the blissful and innocent freedom of youth.

AUTHOR: catw00man
RATING: PG
SERIES: From the Beginning: In Pieces
CHARACTERS: Roy Mustang
WORD COUNT: 500
DISCLAIMER: The characters portrayed within are not mine. This is merely a loving response to the original work.
AUTHOR’S NOTE: I’ve always wondered why I’ve never seen anything about Roy’s past before going to Madame Christmas, so I’ve decided to play with an idea that will fit into our ART verse (if you choose to see it that way). The song I used (and slightly tweaked) is “Nowhere but Texas” by The Steve Helms Band. It’s the song my hubby picked when I asked for a song for inspiration! He didn’t make things easy so I created a new city/region in Western Amestris. ;-)

A Mechanic’s Passion

Summary: Automail is more than shiny metal and whirling gears. To some, it’s life.

AUTHOR: catw00man
RATING: PG
CHARACTERS: Winry Rockbell, Riza Hawkeye
WORD COUNT: 500
COMPLETED: April 25, 2012
DISCLAIMER: The characters portrayed within are not mine. This is merely a loving response to the original work.
AUTHOR’S NOTE: This follows after Pieces of a Whole, where Riza lost most of her left arm and had to have it replaced with automail. Winry made her a new one that was more delicate than most so she could continue her duties as a sniper and gun expert. This can be read as a standalone.
