Hello, fanfic readers!

It’s the last week of Angst May (no worries, June’s theme will be much happier!). Just like last week, today’s request is for another anime that’s soon getting a live action adaptation: Fullmetal Alchemist. Here’s 10 Fullmetal Alchemist angst recs!

The World Spins On, Uncaring

By: Ayotofu
Summary: It’s Winry who finds the first gray hair when he’s twenty. “You’re turning into an old man already, Ed,” she teases, holding out the strand for him to see. “I guess those years in the military did a number on you after all.” — In which Ed is eighty when he’s thirty and nobody is okay.

The Awful Truth of Suffering
