Ye gods, I was starting to think I was never going to get this thing posted. ^^; Let the record stand: beginnings are hard
(though naturally harder when you start half way through and only the come back to them). Thanks to velithya
for proof reading this for me.Title:
Tsubasa/Fullmetal Alchemist (+extra random CLAMP, in compliance with standard Tsubasa guidelines)Part:
It's nearly always safe to assume that whatever trouble the Tsubasa crew wind up in, there's going to be a feather involved somewhere in the middle of things. And it's probably even safer to assume that where the Elric brothers are involved, it's never going to be the Philosopher's Stone. Notes:
Written partially because Tsubasa is the sort of series you can cross with anything
, and I happened to spot a few neat little parallels in the standard week-to-week plots of the early chapters of both series that amused me (see: fic summary). But mostly because the chance to put Ed and Syaoran in one place was too good to pass up. The sheer determination those boys approach their journeys with is pretty impressive stuff.
Timeline-wise, this would be set somewhere in the early volumes of Tsubasa (presumably past Outo country, since Syaoran's carrying around a sword, but not much further than that) and during early or pre-series FMA - in fact, it should probably be possible to follow this even if you're not more than very basically familiar with FMA at all.( Catalyst: Part 1 )
