For  30_nights 


There have only been a few moments in life when Edward Elric has cried. The longest times, times he would spend crying all night, were when his father left and he had been a small child, too young and too sad to try to be a tough guy, and when his mother died, and he and his brother had gained the title of orphan.

 

When the first person to show him numerous nights of pleasure and love turned into a monster in front of his very eyes, Ed did not cry… Until he had retired to a dorm room for the night.

 

And the entire night he cried non-stop, tears as he realized over and over again that Ling would not be sneaking into his window that night, that Ling was as good as dead. And that he had been stupid enough to allow their little “get together” to actually mean something to him.

 

But he was Edward Elric, the Fullmetal Alchemist, a person with goals and determination, and he allowed those tears to show only for one night, before he went back to his normal routines. He never let on that he was hurting, in public or at night, and eventually that hurt went away. It was how he dealt with those kinds of things. It was how he had dealt with his mother’s death.

 

Alphonse was careful never to mention Greed or Ling, and sometimes not even Ran Fan. While Roy Mustang and his crew were careful not to ask why, the morning after the brothers’ returned Ed’s eyes were red and puffy.
