Mesa no own FMA or HP or Song (Just the cat)

Seito: I didn't plan on posting this fic... but there were three people that were telling me to post it so here it is. (Might as well contribute to the much-needed FMA fics). =sigh= I don't know...

Well I'll consider this my goodbye fic. (Don't worry I'm not really going anywhere). Tomorrow I starts school... goodbye summer. (oh and people don't go rubbing it in if you don't start tomorrow... or soon. =grumble= I get that enough from my brother and friends)

Just some facts you need to know.

-Take place during the manga (That makes Ed about 15, I believe)

-Take place during Harry's first year (the first book) [Some of the words and actions are taken directly from the book, please don't sue for that]

-Contains some minor spoilers for FMA if you hadn't read up vol 6 (Not too much, just a few sentence of it, I think)

-THERE WILL BE SHONEN AI HINTS!!! IF YOU'RE NOT COMFORTABLE WITH THAT PLEASE LEAVE!!! I DO NOT WANT FLAMES ABOUT HAVING SHONEN AI. (I'm serious about this people. If you know who I am, you know I write plenty of shonen ai and fluff. I refuse to be flamed by people who ignore this warning. So if you flame me about this, it will ignored and the review/e-mail will be deleted.)


You can start reading now. I think that's it.

Chapter I

Intertwining Fate; The Alchemists Have Arrive


Hitori de wa, tooi ashita wo

Yoake no mama de, koesou de

{When I'm alone, tomorrow feels far away.

And I must go over still into the darkness of dawn.}



Riza Hawkeye let out a soft sigh as the semi-peaceful headquarters was disturbed by a loud yell. Next to her, Alphonse Elric also let out a sigh. And today started out like a beautiful day too, the birds were singing, the sun was shining, and as usual chaos decided to ran amuck.

"Nii-san must not like his new assignment," Al mumbled. Riza could only nod in agreement. She got a feeling that whatever was happening in the office, her superior was having a headache.

=Inside the Office=

"I refuse."

"Don't you want to learn more about the philosopher's stone?"

"Yes, but I refuse to go without my brother!"

"Lieutenant Hawkeye will look after him."

"I'm still not going by myself."

"You're not. I'm going with you."

"Yes— what?!"

"I'm going with you."

Edward Elric fainted right after hearing that.


Of course that was a few days ago. At present time, Edward Elric was on a train with Colonel Roy Mustang after a tearful goodbye from Major Alex Louis Armstrong and his brother Al. First lieutenant Riza Hawkeye was the only one who gave them a solid goodbye (mainly because she was the only other person there) and wished them luck. The blond haired boy collapsed onto the chair on the train. Why was he doing this to himself?!

"Stop looking so glum. It's not going to kill you," said Roy.

Ed merely glared at the only person in the cart with him. Roy didn't look up from the book he was reading, but Ed could see that familiar smirk from behind the pages. He ignored his superior and pouted. If Mustang hadn't mentioned the philosopher's stone, he wouldn't even be here. Actually he didn't even understand why he was here.


"Nice of you to return to the world of conscious, Fullmetal."

Ed merely glared. "I am not going to this 'Hogwarts' place."

Roy handed him a letter. "I'm afraid your invitation has already arrived."

Ed blinked and opened the letter.

Hogwarts School
Of Witchcraft and Wizardry
Headmaster: Albus Dumbledore

(Order of Merlin, First Class, Grand Sorc. Chef. Warlock, Supreme Mugwump, International Confed. Of Wizards)

Dear My. Edward Elric
We are pleased to inform you that you have been accepted at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Please find enclosed a list of all necessary books and equipment.
Term begins on September 1. We await your owl by no later than July 31.

Yours sincerely,

Minerva McGonagall

Minerva McGonagall, Deputy Headmistress

"Owl?" questioned Ed.

"Already been sent," said Roy.

Ed looked at his superior with this I-can't-believe-you're-making-me-do- this look. "You've got to be joking," he said. There was a hint of anger in his voice as he threw the letter onto the desk. Roy just smirked. "No, Fullmetal, I am not."

"Why can't Al go?" Ed asked.

"Because he wasn't invited. Oh and please refrain from using Alchemy while we are at this school," said Roy in a matter of fact tone of voice.


"We're going to learn 'magic', not Alchemy. You are not to use Alchemy unless under direct circumstances. That doesn't include you getting angry when someone calls you short or shrimp," said Roy.


"See what I mean?" said Roy smugly.

Ed settled for glaring at him. "Why do we even need to go there?" he whined.

"Because it is said that the philosopher's stone is hidden there."

Ed snapped to attention at the sound of those words. "What?!"

=End of Flashback=

Of course Roy gave him the bait, and Ed fell for it, hook, line, and sinker. Hence why Ed was on a train with his superior. The past few days had been a rush. Al had been understanding and gave Roy instructions to make sure his brother drank plenty of milk and kept healthy. ("Damnit Al, I don't want milk." –Ed) Then Ed and Roy had to go shopping for supplies.

Diagon Alley was a very interesting place. However, Ed was not looking forward to ever returning to that place again. Here's a list of what happened:

-Twenty five times he had been mistaken for his size and age.

-He threw up from the ride down in Gringotts bank.

-Seventy six times Roy had found a way to annoy him like crazy or call him short/shrimp. (Plus Roy wouldn't let him buy all the books he wanted. "You only need your textbooks. You don't need anything else." –Roy)

-Five times he had been scratched by his new kitten (courtesy of Roy), named Shinka. ("Sacred Flame? I'm honored." –Roy "I'm not naming it after you!" –Ed [Seito: Liar])

-Fifteen times he felt like transforming something. Whether it be his automail into a sword to skewer his superior or his kitten, some annoying kid or goblin, or the lady who called him short when measuring his size for his robes.

-Six hours trying to find the right wand for him. Four hours waiting for Roy to get his wand. ("I can't believe you made me wait four hours." –Ed. "This is coming from someone who took SIX hours." –Roy)

Yes... Ed was not looking forward to going there again. EVER.

Then Ed found out why Roy was going. He didn't know whether to laugh or thank his superior.


"Colonel, why on earth are you going to Hogwarts. You're not a student..."

"I'm going as an assistant"

"For what."

"The library."

Ed blinked before he starting laughing. "What?" asked Roy with an irritated look.

"I just can't imagine you being a librarian," said Ed in between laughs.

Roy just smirked. "Then I guess I can't give you access to the restricted section of the library..." he trailed off as Ed got the hint and stopped laughing.

=End of Flashback=

Ed's thoughts were broken as the door opened. There in the doorway stood a boy with messy black hair and bright emerald green eyes, dressed in clothes that were too big for him. Next to him, was a boy with flaming red hair and brown eyes dressed in what looked like hand-me-down clothes.

"Err sorry. We were looking for an empty cart," said the redhead. "Do you mind if we stay here?"

Ed looked at Roy who had yet to look up from his book. Personally, he didn't care as long as they didn't call him shrimp or short. Roy just gave a small nod. "Sure," said Ed. He sat up, his anger forgotten at the moment. Both boys walked into the cart and took a seat. Not wanting to disturb the older man (Roy: I am not old!) in the cart with them, both boys took a seat next to Ed.

"I'm Ron Weasley," introduced the redhead.

"And I'm Harry Potter," said the black haired boy.

Ron seemed to be waiting for a reaction from Ed. "I'm Edward Elric, but you can call me Ed," said Ed. Finally someone else to talk to other then his baka superior. Ron opened his mouth to say something, but Harry stopped him with an elbow jab. Ed looked at them, curious. He looked over to Roy and was about to ask when the door opened again. This time is was girl with bushy hair.

"Has anyone seen a toad? Neville's lost one."

Ron and Harry shook their heads. Ed ignored her as did Roy. The girl waited for an answer from them. After a few moments of silence, she gave a 'humph' and stormed off. Roy turned the page in his book as Ed fished out one of his own. Might as well start memorizing spells and such. He had gotten through most of his first textbook before they left this morning.

Harry decided to take a shot and ask Roy whom he was. "Um... sir, are you a teacher?" Roy looked up from his book at that time. He was about to answer when the door opened yet again.

This time it was a boy. Harry's heart skipped a beat when he met those blue- gray color eyes. Harry had met the same boy at Madam Malkin's Robes for All Occasions. While the boy made his heart race for some reason, Harry was a bit irked by his attitude. If he would only change it...

"Is it true?" He said. "They're saying all down the train that Harry Potter's in this compartment. So it's you, is it?" Harry felt a sparkle of pride (again for reasons unknown to him).

"Yes," said Harry. He watched as two more boys stepped into the compartment. They looked to be more brawn then brains. Out of the corner of their eyes Roy and Ed watched the new arrivals. There were alarms ringing in their heads that said to be careful around this boy.

The pale boy introduced himself and the two boys next to him. "Oh, this is Crabbe, and this is Goyle, and I'm Draco Malfoy." Ed gave a cough, and Ron snorted. Draco looked up at the two of them.

"And what do we have here?" he sneered. "A blond shrimp and a Weasley." Ron blushed a ruby red color and Ed jumped to his feet. "I am not a shrimp!" Ed's hands twitched as he fought the urge to punch Malfoy's lights out.


Roy's voice cut through the air like a razor. Ed stiffen as Draco's attention shifted to the older man. It seemed everyone forgot that the flame alchemist was in the same cart as they were. Ed looked at his superior silently questioning him. Roy merely sent him a look that said 'later'.

"Who are you?" asked Draco.

Roy shifted his attention from Ed to Draco. "I'm Roy Mustang. I'll be assistant librarian at Hogwarts. Not a very high position, but I still hold enough authority to get you in trouble with the headmaster if you choose to cause any more trouble here. I suggest you leave, Mr. Malfoy."

Draco bit his lip. The last thing he needed was to get in trouble with a teacher before the school year even started. Even if the teacher just happened to be an assistant. Before he left he turned to Harry. "You'll soon find out some wizarding families are much better than others, Potter. You don't want to go making friends with the wrong sort. If you ever want a helping hand, I'll help you, but I suggest that you don't hang around riffraff like the Weasleys and that Hagrid, they'll rub off on you." Then he and goons left.

Anger rose in Harry. The nerve of him; what did he see in that guy? Harry took a few deep breaths and attempted to still his anger. Ed didn't seem to be having much luck, sulking in the corner. A question then arose in Harry's mind, distracting him from his anger.

"Ed why did umm... err Mr. Mustang, call you Fullmetal," asked Harry.

Ed looked up distracted. Roy twitched at his 'new title'. Mr. Mustang. Blah, he hated it. But he couldn't just let his new 'students' call him Roy either right? Ed looked at Roy, half glaring.

"It's a nickname," he explained. "I can't say I'm fond of it, but he insists on calling me by it sometimes."

"You two know each other?" asked Ron. They certainty didn't act like it. Ed and Roy exchanged glances.

"We know each other alright," said Ed.

Before anything else could be said, they all noticed that the train seemed to slow down a bit. Just then the same girl from before came into the cart. "You better change into your school robes. We're almost there," she said.

Ed looked at her darkly. All this girl seemed to do was nag and nag. So he blocked out her voice and continued to read. The girl took no notice of him or Roy and continued to chatter. "My name is Hermione Granger. Nice to meet you. You're Harry Potter aren't you? I've read about you in Modern Magical History and The Rise and Fall of the Dark Arts and Great Wizarding Events of the Twentieth Century." Harry looked at her in a bit of a daze. She had just told him he was in more books then he could even imagine. Hermione soon left as well.

Ron and Harry left to change, their robes were in their luggage, which was located down the hall. That left Roy and Ed alone. Ed proceeded to change while Roy appeared to be reading. (Keyword there: appeared). In a matter of minutes, he was dressed. It was then Roy's turn to change as Ed when back to reading. Roy didn't notice but Ed was watching him dress too.

Once Roy was done, Ed looked up and blinked, once, twice, three times. "What," said Roy, noticing the look he was getting.

"It's nothing," said Ed as he turned back to his book. "I just realized how strange it was to see you out of uniform and into something... a little more casual. Even if it is just boring black robes."

Then the train came to the stop. They were here... The alchemists had arrived at Hogwarts...

-Fullmetal Alchemist Manga, Chapter 1, Volume 1

----------------------Owari? Or To be continued?--------------------

Seito: There the first chapter. I hoped you enjoyed. =pets Shinka=

To anyone curious, the title means 'Before Dawn' I believe. I maybe wrong. My Japanese isn't the best. And the two Japanese lines at the beginning of the chapter, followed by the translation is from the song 'Heart of Sword—Yoake Mae' from Rurouni Kenshin. XD I think you people can see where I got the title from. (I'm listening to it now. =smile=)

Should I continue?

Please Review!!!!! (No Flames Please!)
