      Neon Genesis Evangelion:
      The Fullmetal Alchemist


      Author’s Note: I think that the next chapter will be an omake, if only for the purpose of having some fun with the characters. Fan art is still needed,

      Opening Theme: “Promised Land 2005†by L’arc~en~ciel

      Ch. 5 (Border Line/The Deadly Sin Known as Lust… Part 1)

      “Entry Plug inserted, beginning LCL injection.†“Primary neural connections: complete. Secondary connections: -complete.†“Countdown to absolute borderline: 7.8,
      6.3,
      5.9,
      4.2,
      3.1,
      2.5,
      1.6,
      -Absolute Borderline: Clear.†“Connection to the A10 nerve is - functional†“Setting Primary Language Interface for German, Evangelion Unit 05 has been activated.†“So Ed, how does it feel?â€Â
      “How, does it feel?†Edward Elric said over the monitor with a tone bearing annoyance, “How does it FEEL? Well after gagging on this crap you decided to fill the tube with before you told me I could breathe it, and feeling like my brain was on fire while you were ‘connecting’ me to this, monster, I feel pretty frickin’ dandy, THANK YOU VERY MUCH!†“So then there are no anomalies?†Ritsuko asked Maya, ignoring Edward’s rage. “None detected ma’am,†Maya replied, stifled pride in her voice, “his sync ratio is clocking in at 33.7%, which is rather high for someone with no training, but considering the Eva’s origin, it’s not that surprising.†“To be expected. Edward,†said Ritsuko, “we’re going to undo the restraints on the arms, and we want you to try move them.†“And how exactly do I do that?†Ed queried. “Just try to move your arms as you normally would, okay? Releasing restraints in 3, 2, 1…†At that the bolts, which bound the arms of Unit-05 to the wall of the test cage, became undone. Slowly, the arms rose up, and through the “windows†in Unit-05’s entry plug, Edward observed the hands of the unit as he manipulated them, flexing the fingers with nothing more than his thoughts. “This is w-weird,†pondered Ed aloud, “almost like I’m helpless and all-powerful at the same time.â€Â
      “How is the mechanical arm holding up?†Ritsuko asked, some concern in her voice. “There is a 0.3 nano-second delay, mainly due to the processors in the arm compiling the data from the Eva’s neural network,†replied Maya. “I see,†said Dr. Akagi, “we’ll have to find a way around it later, we need to get his pilot data. Just keep moving the arms, Edward! We’ll still have some more data to collect.†Ed did as he was told. He kept moving around the arms, trying out different motions and slowly getting used to controlling the machine with his mind. His mind. It was at this time that an idea struck the young alchemist; he decided to perform an experiment. Taking Unit-05’s hands, he clapped them together, the sound resonating throughout the test chamber and the control-room across from him. He was about to go through with the testing phase of his plan when the mechanical, right arm of Unit-05 suddenly went dead, falling limp and hitting the cage wall.
      Claxons and emergency sirens blared in the control room. “Damnit!†Ritsuko screamed as she slammed her fist on top of her console. “Excuse me, what the hell just happened?†Ed exclaimed, obviously confused. Dr. Akagi gathered herself together and explained the situation. “There was an error in the servos that caused your arm to shut down, it’s going to take us a few hours to repair, until then you’re free to go. Disconnect the pilot!†And as the crew worked to removed Edward from the Eva, Maya Ibuki looked at her superior with the utmost suspicion, for only she had seen Ritsuko pull the small, red deactivation switch on her console the moment that Unit-05 had clapped its hands together.

      ***

      In the locker room, a soaked Ed tugged at his plug suit. The plug suit he wore was standard design for male pilots with two exceptions. One was color, and for Edward, the suit was colored red and black. The second exception was that the right sleeve of the suit has been cut off in order to allow Ed’s Auto-mail arm free range. But this didn’t matter to Ed right now, as all he was concerned with was getting the damn thing off. “Stupid, piece of-“, Ed swore in both Japanese and German as he pulled at the suit, but no amount of effort seemed to pull it from his skin. It was then that Ed’s struggle was interrupted by the sound of the locker room door opening.
      “Oh! Hey, it’s Shinji, right?†Edward asked the Third Child. “Y-yes it is,†responded Shinji, surprised to find the Fullmetal Alchemist in the locker room. “So what’re you here for?†asked Ed casually as he returned to his crusade of freeing himself from his plug suit prison. “H-harmonics resonance tests with Unit-01. Hit the pressurization switch again.†Ed looked up with mild surprise, and then did as Shinji instructed. After pressing the switch on the left wrist, the suit became loose once more. “Ah, thanks!†Ed said cheerfully as he grabbed his clothes and locked himself in a changing cubicle. There was a small interim silence until Ed called out to Shinji from his cubicle, “Unit-01, you said, do you mean the purple Eva?†“Yes,†Shinji replied. “Scary looking thing, isn’t it?†Saichel, Leilel, Badriel, Zurel, Tabris; all these flashed through Shinji’s mind at Ed’s word. “Y-yeah,†responded Shinji in a shaky tone, “Ed-san?†“Huh?†replied Ed, emerging from the cubicle fully dressed with the plug suit in hand. “I n-never got a chance to thank you for saving me.†“Oh, don’t mention it, just watch your step next time.†Shinji looked up at the Sixth Child, as Edward walked out of the locker room past the young Eva pilot.

      ***

      Two weeks had passed since the sixth-child had arrived in Tokyo â€" 3, and in that short period of time, Edward Elric had mastered the basics of piloting Eva. However, despite his training, Ed had little idea of why he was preparing for combat.

      Neon Genesis Evangelion:
      The Fullmetal Alchemist


      Author’s Note: So in this chapter, something is going to happen which may or may not result in my crucifixtion/beheading/electrocution-while-being-dumped-into-a-tank-of-rabid-sharks. So you know, this thing puts more of a, mature, aspect on the story, but considering Eva’s history, that should not be a problem. The reason I am doing this thing is simple; I believe that any story, Crossover fan fiction or otherwise, needs to focus on the interactions of the characters within’ the individual sides, and not just the interactions between the characters from the two worlds. Fan art is still welcome/needed.

      Opening Theme: “Promised Land 2005†by L’arc~en~ciel

      Ch. 4 (A Home For Those Who Don’t Want It…)

      “So here’s your apartment! You boys know it’s gonna be kind of bare, considering the luggage you brought with you.†As she said this, Misato stared at the two suitcases and single trunk that the Elric brothers had with them from Armestris. “We’ll be fine,†Edward responded in a nagging manner, “that is, as long as the stuff we ordered before we got here has arrived.†Misato stared intently back at Edward, “If your talking about the lumber, paint, varnish, and sheet metal you two asked to be delivered, it’s in the room. What puzzle’s me is what you two are going to do with tho-“ but Misato caught herself, realizing that the two alchemists were staring back at her with the most blank expression’s on their faces.
      “Never mind. Anyway, if you’re willing to hold off on your ‘construction’ plans for the moment, we can have your welcoming party!†“Thanks, that’s very considerate of yo-WHAT DO YOU MEAN WELCOMING PARTY!†Ed shouted. “Now, now, calm down. It’s not that big a deal, think of it as a chance to meet the other children,†Misato said with a cute smile on her face. “Of course,†her tone changing at once as she grabbed Ed by the collar, “it’s the least you owe me for shooting me down earlier, GOT IT?!†“Uh, y-yes ma’am!†Ed managed to whimper, a look of utter terror adorning his face. “Good,†said Misato as she dropped Ed to the floor and immediately returned to her normal cutesy manner, “See you in a few!†Meanwhile, behind the two, Asuka was rolling on the ground in laughter as Al and Shinji wore expressions that matched Edward’s.

      ***

      Less that 15 minutes later, a small crowd of children combined with adults and one penguin had gathered around the small table in Misato’s apartment. A sign bearing the words, “Welcome to NERV, Ed-kun and Al-san!†stood nailed to the wall behind them. Laughter filled the airs as drinks and instant food (cooked mercifully by Shinji) passed hands. Toji Suzahara, Kensuke Aida, and Misato Katsuragi were laughing at the stories of Ed and Al’s more comedic adventures while Hikari Soraki and Asuka Langley Soryu were obsessing over Pen-Pen. Shinji Ikari, Ritsuko Akagi, and Rei Ayanami sat silently on one side of the table, sipping tea and observing the commotion from their little corner of the universe.
      “Damn! What’s with the constant fricken’ heat?†said an exhausted Edward as he fanned himself his hand. At this, Kensuke chuckled, “Perpetual summer, you’ll get used to it.†“Not soon enough,†sighed Edward, as he removed his red cloak and unclasped his black vest. Not as soon as he had done this, than a shrill scream from Asuka and Hikari broke the silence on the other side of the room. Shinji choked on his tea, Ritsuko and Misato were taken aback, Toji and Kensuke’s eyes glazed over in wonder, and even stoic Rei looked up to see what all the fuss was about. Ed stared blankly back at the people in the room. “What?†said Edward, failing to realize that the sight of his Auto-mail arm was what sent the crowd around him into a temporary panic.
      “E-Ed!†Misato finally managed to choke out after a long and uncomfortable silence, “What h-happened to you?†“’Happened to me’? What are you talking about?†Ed responded still clueless. It was at this that Asuka stood up angrily and with a stamp of her foot, answered Ed’s question, “What do you think we’re talking about dumkorff! Your goddamn arm! That’s what!†Ed’s puzzlement only continued, “My, arm? Oh! Do you mean this?†Edward raised his right arm, which reflected some of the light from the ceiling lamps. “Awesome,†Toji said, regaining his usual swagger, “guess this mean that I’m not the only one with prosthetics.†Toji placed his thin, black artificial arm on the table, “so who did your work?†“Just a friend of mine,†Ed replied, “but if you looking for replacement, I’d advise against it, that is unless you want you wallet cleaned and your head talked off.†Several thousand miles away, Winry Rockbell let out a violent sneeze.
      “So, Mr. Elric, I’m interested in learning how you came to be in need of your ‘apparatus’?†said Ritsuko, speaking for the first time that night. “Um-uh, well,†Ed, responded, looking increasingly uncomfortable as he searched for the words he was trying to say, “y-you see, I, uh, lost it-“ “In the Eastern Area Conflict!†Al said, interrupting his brother, and saving the two from being exposed. “I see,†replied Ritsuko, more than an obvious hint of doubt in her voice, “luckily for you, Mr. Elric, from what I do understand about Auto-mail, we shouldn’t have to worry about any interference when it comes to your synchronization tests tomorrow.

      ***

      “Interesting day, hunh Al?†“You said it, I don’t think I’ve ever seen anyone get so shocked over the sight of Auto-mail before.†“Good thing they didn’t ask you to take off your armor, I can’t imagine how they’d react to that, and we’d be in deep shit for sure.†It had been several hours after Major Katsuragi’s party, and as Edward and Alphonse Elric pondered the day’s event, they were transmuting the materials they had bought into furniture for their apartment.

      Neon Genesis Evangelion:
      The Fullmetal Alchemist


      Author’s Note: I’d like to thank scientist13 for creating the image for the last chapter. If you by chance have any fan art you want create for Fullmetalgelion, feel free to do so, I’ll post it here. The reason I ask for this is to see how you, the readers, perceive the world and interactions of the characters in this story.

      Opening Theme: “Promised Land 2005†by L’arc~en~ciel

      Ch. 3 (Monster of Sin, Monster of Redemption (The Alchemic Remix))
      Ed stood in state of combined awe and horror at the large figure of the beast before him. “Impressed?†asked the blonde-haired women in the lab coat. “W-what,†Ed began, stammering, “what in the hell is thi-this THING?†With a slight “humph†as though she were insulted, the woman explained, “This ‘thing’, as you put it, is the Humanoid Custom Combat Unit Evangelion â€" 05, ‘specifically’ designed for your use.†During the course of this conversation between Dr. Akagi and Edward, Asuka had made her way over to Shinji and Rei, who happened to be standing behind Ritsuko at the time. “This the new guy?†Shinji asked of the Second Child. “Yeah,†Asuka replied, quite miffed, “but don’t expect much from him, he’s got a sharp tongue and little manners.†<Kind of like another Eva pilot that I know> thought Shinji, the sight of the cane in Asuka’s hands causing him to keep this to himself.
      “Evangelion? My use?†Ed inquired, anger in his voice growing, “What do you mean by this ‘designed for me’ crap? Is this why I’m all the way out here? To operate this m-machine?†“Precisely,†responded a curt and booming voice from above. Standing on a platform one level above the crowd below, Commander Gendo Ikari stared down at the boy. Gendo let out the smallest hint of a sinister smile, “Mr. Elric, I presume? Or would the title ‘Fullmetal Alchemist’ suit you?â€Â

      ***

      While Gendo and Edward Elric were exchanging what only at their roots could be called ‘pleasantries’, the Third Child became internally distraught at the sight of his estranged father. So distraught was the poor child that he began to back away from the crowd. No one seemed to notice, as all attention was focused on the semi-altercation occurring between the Commander and the recently revealed ‘Fullmetal Alchemistâ€Â, that is, until, Shinji somehow managed to back into, and over, the railing behind. It was at this point of being within gravity’s ever-present pull that Shinji let out a very audible scream, similar to the millions that were resonating within his mind. However through the mental din, was a small voice in the back of his head that had a cynical and sarcastic tone.
      <Well now you’ve done it, dumbass, > the voice said rather coldly, <you have chosen what is possibly the lamest and most pathetic way to die, an “accidental fallâ€Â. Way to go, loser>. This, combined with Shinji’s screaming, prevented anyone from noticing the barely audible clap heard in the background. What WAS noticable was the surge of what appeared to be cackling, blue lighting zoom from out of the center of the crowd and down the wall following the falling boy. The surge settled a good 20 meters below the falling child. Then, with a flash of blue light, is proceeded to rip apart the wall and, with these materials, form a human hand, which gently broke Shinji’s fall.
      Everyone in the cage met these events with shock. Gaping mouths directed at the scene were present on every face in the crowd, with three exceptions of course. One of them was the armored Alphonse, whom despite the fact that his chosen wardrobe hid his face and made his expression unreadable had a relaxed demeanor about his body. The second person who met the occurrence without confusion was Edward, who was presently on one knee with his right hand on the floor a look of concentration on his face and small traces of the supposed electrical surge that going back and forth between the giant had which caught Shinji, and Ed’s hand on the floor. The final person was Gendo Ikari, standing above the scene with a devious smile upon his face.
      “Whew! That was a close one! Hey kid,†Ed shouted down to the somewhat distraught, and very confused, Shinji, “you should be more careful, watch where you step next time! Hey Al, think you can clean this up for me?†“Sure thing,†said Al, as he moved toward the sight of Shinji’s plunge. Taking out a small piece of chalk from a holster on his leg, Al proceeded to draw a small, and quite unusual, shape on the ground in their form a circle with a triangle in his center. Laying his armored hand on top of the circle, Al remained still in a form of concentration. Soon afterward the circle ignited in same blue light and electrical surging as before, and the large metallic hand that caught Shinji moved upward and deposited the boy back on the platform before rejoining the wall from which it came.
      “I see that the rumors are true, I look forward to working with you, Fullmetal,†said a calm and collected Gendo, mischievous smile still upon his face, “Dr. Akagi, Major Katsuragi, I leave it to you to handle the rest of this.â€Â

      ***

      “Guy is about as caring as a tiger shark,†Ed commented as he and Al followed Misato, Ritsuko, and the other children into the control room. Misato smiled cheerfully. “That’s our Commander. So Edward, where will you be living during your stay with us?†“I was under the impression that my bother and I would be given accommodations,†Ed replied casually. A serious look suddenly appeared on Misato’s face, “You mean, you two will be living alone?†“Yeah,†said Edward, “were used to being on our own have been for years, why do you ask?†A look appeared on Misato’s face at the moment, a look that caused Asuka and Shinji to sigh rather heavily, for they knew what was coming next.

      The Fullmetal Alchemist


      Author’s Note: I’m looking for an illustrator, depict one of the scenes in this chapter, and the job could be yours.

      Opening Theme: “Cruel Angel’s Thesis†by Takahashi Youko

      Ch. 2 (Monster of Sin, Monster of Redemption)

      “Pilot Ikari, we have received orders to report to Central Dogma immediately.†The bell rang signifying the end of class, as Rei said these words. Shinji was momentarily dumbstruck, “O-okay,†he finally managed to mutter, “you wouldn’t happen to know why would you?†Rei stood silently for a moment before responding, “I believe it is to greet the 6th child.â€Â

      ***

      Ed and Asuka sat in Misato’s car, fuming, as they drove to NERV headquarters. “I’m sorry ‘bout the mix-up earlier, Mr. Elric,†said Misato, “but I had assumed that you would be, well-†“’Well’ what?†Ed interjected with the anger in his voice rising. “Taller,†replied Misato in a cutesy manner.
      scientist1343bf46a1e9122.jpg -(done by scientist13)
      Al (who by a miracle or nature, managed to fit his large, armored body into small car with having to take is apart) was forced to restrain his brother before he could attack the major. In an attempt to divert the conversation away his height, Ed changed the subject.
      “My ‘commanding officer’,†Ed said the words with a slight distaste in his mouth, as his thought’s landed on Mustang, “said that I would learn what the purpose for coming out all this way would be when I got here. So let’s cut straight to it, what am I here for?†“You mean you don’t know?†inquired Asuka. “Let’s just say I’m not exactly on friendly terms with the military at the moment,†Ed said with even more disgust in his tone. “Well, it seems the two of us can agree on at least one thing!†Asuka said with a mischievous tone, “but trust me when I say this, your in for one hell of a wild ride, ‘sixth child’.†“S-sixth child? What the hell is that supposed to mean?!†Ed replied, rather indignantly. At this, a slight smile came over Misato’s face, “Oh, you’ll see.â€Â

      ***

      Dr. Ritsuko Akagi worked diligently from the control room in the Eva cages. As she worked, she was escorted by two-armed NERV security personal that stationed themselves at the door of whatever room she happened to be in at the time. A grim reminder of the fact that she was, indeed, a convict and a prisoner, with several charges of second degree murder on her shoulders. She brought this weight down upon herself when she decided to “destroy†NERV’s “dummy plug†system. However, due to that fact that operations at NERV practically slowed to a crawl in her absence, Commander Ikari thought it best to let her work “under close supervision†as he put it himself. She thought little of this at the moment, because, working with technician Maya Ibuki, she was running through the Eva’s daily matainance routine.
      “We’ve had no reports of cellar degradation within units 00, 01, and 02. The technicians reports that all their systems are funtioning at optimal efficiency,†Maya Ibuki read of the diagnostic that had just appeared on her monitor. “Good,†replied the doctor, “and the status of unit 05?†A slight smile filled with pride appeared on Maya’s face, “all set, all we need to do is gather the pilot data, and we’ve just received word from Major Katsuragi, she’s on her way as we speak.†“Nice work, Maya,†Ritsuko replied in an upbeat tone.
      Both of them looked down in to the cage from the control room. Bound to the wall on the direct opposite of the two, we’re the bright red Unit 02, and the Dark Blue (and recently restored) Unit 00. Locked in a separate room to the right of the main cage was the purple and green Unit 01, isolated with good reason. And on the left wall of the main cage, was bound the most unusual Eva seen to date by the technicians at NERV. Designated “Unit 05â€Â, it was blood red and black in color. It bore a resemblance to Unit 01 due to the cragged jaw line and large horn in the center of its head. But these things are not what made this Eva unusual.
      What made this Eva different from the others was its right arm. Though the Eva’s were mostly organic with cybernetic components, Unit 05’s right arm was entirely mechanical. It had a bright silver shine which brought it in stark contrast to the rest of the Unit. In fact, this arm bore a stark resemblance to one being used by none other than a certain Edward Elric riding in a car several miles away from NERV headquarters at the time. The reason this arm was in place was rather unusual. When the Eva was first delivered to NERV, it came in the form of a small tank of cellular matter. After every possible method of detection was used to determine if the tub of goo was a threat failed to show any signs of danger, the Commander ordered the construction of the Eva. The Eva itself formed at a rapid rate, and “construction†was going swimmingly, that is until it came time to “construct†the right arm and left leg. From what data was provided with the “deliveryâ€Â, it was created not only with the typical substances of the Eva’s, but with DNA taken from the prospective pilot as well (miles away, Ed scratched a small scar on his rear end, given to him by one very unfortunate Sergeant Gene Havoc when he was ordered to gather some of Ed’s skin for reasons unknown. Apparently, the Sergeant had lousy skill when it came to tossing coins).
      Something within the pilot’s genetic code prevented the grown of the limbs. Creative work by Ritsuko had managed to break the barriers in the leg and worked to prevent any future issues with it, but the arm refused to give in. This forced the staff to rely on the second part of the “deliveryâ€Â, a large and partially constructed metal arm.
      And so, hence was the history of Unit 05. As it lay unmoving in the cage, Ritsuko could only ponder as to what would happen with this new Eva and its pilot.

      Neon Genesis Evangelion:
      The Fullmetal Alchemist


      Authors Note: Before we begin, I would like to state that the timeline I am running off of here follows the FMA manga as opposed to the anime (there are some MAJOR differences, check wikipedia to know what I am talking about). It also follows the NGE timeline in respect to what I call the NGE: R tangent, something that was created by the popular fanfiction “Neon Genesis Evangelion: R†which continues the story on the premise that the events in episodes 25 & 26 (which took place in Shinji’s mind) was not concurrent with the events in EoE (which I have occur later in my story). For a reference, my story takes place a good seven months after episode 24.

      Opening Theme: “Promised Land 2005†by L’Arc-en-ciel

      Ch. 1 (Edward Elric: The Fullmetal Alchemist/The 6th Child)

      Shinji Ikari greeted the morning with a loud yawn, only to have a response borne of silence. A lack of activity in the apartment of Major Misato Katsuragi was quite unusual, even if it was morning. After getting dressed, he proceeded out to the kitchen. There it was confirmed that, with the exception of himself and the (still sleeping) warm water penguin Pen Pen, that the apartment was rather empty, and earily quiet. That is, it was quiet, till the doorbell rang, announcing the arrival of a couple visitors.
      “Hey, Shinji! What’s up?†Kensuke Aida asked rather cheerfully. The bespectled young man was rather ecstatic today, while his companion had a less than enthusiastic mood. “Nothing much,†said Shinji, “And you guys?†“Could be better,†replied Touji Suzahara with a hint of annoyance in his voice. Kensuke chuckled at the sound of his clearly agitated friend’s voice. He then filled Shinji in as to what had pissed off his friend, “We ran into Misato and Asuka on the way out, let’s just say that Touji and Asuka had a less than friendly excha-“ “Hey Aida, I have an Idea, why don’t we NOT discuss this now,†Touji interrupted, “I’m sure the less we hear of the devil, the better.†Touji leaned against the doorframe to his left, grabbing onto the side of it with his black, mechanical arm.
      Shinji became uneasy at the sight of arm, not because he had a problem with artificial limbs, but because he was the reason that the arm (and left leg as well) were bound to Touji. Touji and Shinji had reached an unspoken agreement never to speak of the incident. “So,†said Aida in an attempt to cut the tension, “do you know why those two were leaving so early?†“Beats me,†Shinji replied, “Misato said something about greeting someone and needing a German translator.â€Â

      ***

      On a mountain highway overlooking Tokyo-3, Asuka Langley Soryu sit in the passenger seat of Major Misato Katsuragi’s car. She had a stern look on her face, oddly enough, as moments before it was filled with joy at the prospect of acting as a translator for the guest’s arriving at Tokyo-3 today. That is, until, she learned where they were from. “Armestians,†she said rather coldly, “Verdammt, why the hell are we playing host to two of them? From their military even! Are the higher ups at NERV insane?†“I told you already,†replied Misato, “one of them is going to be-“ “I KNOW THAT!!!†shrieked Asuka, the very idea sickening her to their stomach, “I just don’t understand why their candidate had to be from their military! You KNOW the kind of things they’ve done! I swear, it that bastard tries anything, I’ll…†mumbling incoherently, Asuka tightened her grip on a small metal cane she carried on her lap.
      The cane was something that Asuka needed when she first awoke from a coma six months prior. Though her awakening was one of a vigorous (and rather loud, as the her screams were coupled with those of the third child who happened to be at her bedside at the time) nature, she had difficulty walking due to her long period of inactivity. And though in her months of recovery, she has come to rely on the cane less and less, her mobility has yet to be completely restored, so she must continue to use the cane (coincidentally, she had found the cane to be useful for “other purposesâ€Â, such as concussing the third child during moments of outrage). “Relax Asuka,†Mistao replied with something of a cheery air around her, “from what I heard so far, he seems to be a nice guy, and he’s even brought his little brother with him! How can you call someone like that evil?†“The road to hell is paved with good intentions, miss Misato,†retorted Asuka, “don’t forget that when you throw this ‘Edward Elric’ into the entry plug.â€Â

      ***

      “’Just wait at the train station, and I’ll pick you two up when your train arrives!’ signed, Major Misato Katsuragi,†Edward Elric read aloud off of a rather revealing picture of the person who wrote it. “The problem is,†Ed said with a sigh, “our train got here an HOUR AGO!†“She’s just late, I’m sure she’ll be here in no time, we just have to be patient,†replied the metalicly resonating voice of Alphonse Elric. “I was patient during the trip it took to get here! 36 hours and here we are, stuck in the middle of a distant country at some derelict city in the middle of nowhere! I’m sure Mustang’s back in central just laughing his damn head off at the fact that he got us all the way out here on ‘orders’!†Ed retorted angrily, “’You’ll know when you get there’, my ass!†“Calm down, Big Brother, your making a scene,†Al said quietly, for indeed Ed’s ranting combined with their unusual appearance was drawing them some unrequited stares from the denizens of Tokyo-3, “besides, we don’t really have a choice about waiting here, we have no idea how to navigate this city, we would only get lost.†“At least it would be better than doing nothing,†quipped Ed. Al heaved a sigh, “I’m sure it won’t be much longer, she proba-Hey! I think that’s her!â€Â
      As Al said this, a small blue car barreled down the road and came to a screeching halt in front of the brothers.

    • Fanfiction time...

      Deadbeat34

      I wrote this at the encouragement of a friend...

      It's an Eva meets FMA fanfiction, catagorized in the lines drama, action, and comedy....

      Please feel free to leave critiicism, priase whatever in the comments, I'll keep those in midn while writing the next chapters..

      Just a note before we begin, for the purpose of this fanfiction, Armestris, the country where FMA takes place, is a pre-industrial nation that keeps Alchemy as a national secret, which I use to cover the inconsistancies...

      So here it is, my fanifc:

      Neon Genesis Evangelion:
      The Fullmetal Alchemist


      Ch. 00 (prolouge)

      “Armestris,†Dr. Ritsuko Akagi said as she put down her coffee cup, “a small, pre-industrial, militaristic nation in western Europe. Known for its advancements in medicine, especially the creation of artificial limbs, known as ‘automail’. Infamous for the constant hostility it displays towards its neighbors and its own people. Its government has been accredited to one of the more bloody civil conflicts of the century. †Major Misato Katsuragi starred back at her friend intently, she responded with an air of curiosity in her voice. “Pre-industrial? It’s a wonder that they weren’t wiped off the face of the earth by the second impact! How the hell did they survive the aftermath?†“Well, they had one thing the rest of the world didn’t,†Replied Dr. Akagi, glaring down into the cage from the control room she was working in, staring at the large demonic form of what was being called “the new arrivalâ€Â. “And that was?†an eager Misato asked. “Heh,†and with a tone almost mocking those of whom she spoke, the good doctor gave her answer, “the power of Alchemy.â€Â

      ****

      Gendo Ikari had long since made an enemy of the committee known only to a few as SEELE. Ever since he made it clear that he intended to follow his own set of objectives, the committee had made a point of doing whatever it could to make his life a living hell (and failing miserably at that made them even angrier with him than before). So logically, Commander Ikari never thought his presence would be required in front of the throne of souls ever again. So it came as something of a mild shock when the committee for what requested his presence had been labeled an “urgent matterâ€Â. “Gentleman, it’s been a while,†Ikari said mockingly. “When I first received your invitation, I thought that it surely must be in jest. But when NERV received your “package†last week, I thought it would be in my best interest to at least hear you out.â€Â
      “Cut the crap, Ikari,†a large black monolith, bearing the designation SEELE-03 replied in a curt manner, “we’ve been placed in a situation that’s…beyond our control.†A wicked grin came over Gendo’s face, “So, mighty SEELE finds the limit of its of its power at last, the only question is, what ‘situation’ is so grave that is requires my assistance?â€Â
      “Laugh while you can, Ikari, but once you understand the magnitude of this, even you will be overwhelmed,†replied an indignant SEELE-05. Not relaxing his arrogant demeanor for even a moment, Gendo returned his rhetoric, “Feel free to fill me in on the details then, gentleman.â€Â
      “Very well,â€Â, SEELE-06 began, “I’m sure you are familiar with the incident at the secret NERV sub-branch in the Swiss Alps.†“Indeed I am, “ replied Gendo, something of curiosity brewing in his voice. “You are then familiar with the manner in which the facility was destroyed.†Gendo look became stone serious, “If I remember correctly, the report explicitly described it as though the entire base was ‘ripped apart and rearranged on the molecular level’.†“Correct, it was a power that was thought to be unheard of, yes the evidence of its existence stood before us, plain as day.†“It stands as the greatest threat to the Human Instrumentality Project that we have ever encountered!†Piped up SEELE-02, “It was a power capable of destroying everything we had been working for, and we turned a blind eye because it presented no active threat to us and our plans. That is, until…†“Until what?â€Â, Gendo asked. “We received, a letter,†SEELE-07 replied in a deep and booming voice, “each one of us received what was essentially a declaration of war, stating that what we were attempting was the highest known sin, and that he intended to stop us by any means necessary. It was signed ‘The Night-Eye Alchemist’.â€Â
      “So, how I take it that you ‘gift’ is designed to combat this threat,†concluded Gendo, “but with its, augmentation, in mind, who do you intend to be its pilot?†The monolith designated SEELE-01 gave a slight chuckle, “you know how the old adage goes Ikari, ‘Fight fire, with fire’…â€Â

      The Tokyo-3 loop-line moved across its typical path, just as it did every day. Its cars filled with student and salary men heading to school and work, respectively. Its passengers were what some would consider too be relatively normal, with a few exceptions, of course. However, today was different. Today the Tokyo-3 loop-line had the honor of playing host to a most unusual set of passengers. No one knew what to make of the two. The two of them sat towards the back of the car, seemingly unaware of the gazes they were drawing. One donned a rather large suit of medieval armor, he was sitting upright staring out the window with a passive look on his face, supposedly. The armor made it quite difficult to see the man face under it. It made people wonder if the was a face under the armor, but that would just be silly, they thought.
      The other person was more normal looking then his counter part, but with his large red cloak, black clothing, and white gloves, he wasn’t that that much better than his companion. He looked to be a boy in his early teens. He had long blonde hair drawn back into a braid behind his head. The boy was asleep, with his right arm perched rather precariously on the top of his seat. There was a slight bump and his arm fell and hit the armrest.

      Body: PLEASE READ THIS WHOLE POST. IT'S SO DANG TRUE* 1. At least 2 people
      in this world love you so much they would die for you. 2. At least 15 people
      in this world love you in some way. 3. The only reason anyone would ever
      hate you is because they want to be just like you. 4. A smile from you can
      bring happiness to anyone, even if they don't like you. 5. Every night,
      SOMEONE thinks about you before they go to sleep. 6. You mean the world to
      someone. 7. If not for you, someone may not be living. 8. You are special
      and unique. 9. Someone that you don't even know exists loves you. 10. When
      you make the biggest mistake ever, something good comes from it. 11. When
      you think the world has turned its back on you, take a look: you most likely
      turned your back on the world. 12. When you think you have no chance of
      getting what you want, you probably won't get it, but if you believe in
      yourself, probably, sooner or later, you will get it. 13. Always remember
      the compliments you received. Forget about the rude remarks. 14. Always tell
      someone how you feel about them; you will feel much better when they know.

      great. Add this as a comment to ten of your friends tonight and at midnight
      your true love will find you. Something good will happen to you at 2:25
