I've now officially dedicated this to the queen of non-slashy Elric bromance and parental!Roy/Ed fanfic, dark-amethyst
(aka Griselda Banks on FF.net)...because today is her birthday, and I think she's an awesome person who writes awesome stuff, and I don't have time to write anything new for her. >.< Many Happy Returns, Amethyst!! Keep up with the amazing work!

Yay for Elric brother fwuffiness!!
Who says True Love has to be limited to romance? (Personally, I think Ed and Al fit the idea of "soulmates" better than any romantic couple I've ever seen...or at least, my idea of soulmates.) And if anybody DARES to call this Elricest, SO HELP ME, I will hunt them down, tie them to a bed of nails and read Vogon poetry and Breaking Dawn excerpts to them...before stabbing them to death with marshmallow-toasting sticks and roasting their corpses over a campfire.
Don't make me angry. You wouldn't like me when I'm angry.
Especially when I'm in Canon-Purist Mode. And hormonal.
*cough* ANYWAY. This old, drabbly little story was the first piece of FMA fan fiction I ever wrote...and I first posted it in a deviantART comment box, of all places. It was inspired by WONDERFUL piece of FMA fanart I came across; a picture of Ed and Al sitting together, relaxing on a grassy hill under a clear, moonlit night. And where Al's armor is, you can see a faint, ghost-like, smiling figure - Al as his own human self: [link]
I was oggling that for the umpteenth time and then out of the blue, a single phrase brushed against my mind: "Edward loves to sleep...but there is one night when he refuses to let his eyes close..." The plot bunny kept nibbling and nibbling...and finally one night, at 2:00 AM in the morning, I caved and scribbled this thing. And now, after a few extra tweaks, I'm finally posting it here.
Hope you liked it! =3
