Okay. I know that this isnt the most original fanfiction idea, but I just had to get it out of my system. I have seen a lot of videos with this song with the story of the Elric Brothers, Sloth and Trisha and it never fails to make me cry. It's just such a sad, deep story. And this is non other than a songfic. A real songfic and not just inspired by a song. Also this is the scene where Edward turns Sloth's liquid make-up into ethanol and is about to evaporate. Also assume that Alphonse and Wrath are holding their own. So please Enjoy this one. This is my first of few FMA fanfics.
This fanfic is for my sister Sloth. (can you guess who I am? ;) haha)
I'm so tired of being here
Suppressed by all my childish fears
I would give the very breath from my chest
To give you all the things that my mind couldn't bear
And if you have to leave
I wish that you would just leave
'Cause your presence still lingers here
And it won't leave me alone
"Edward…" his name softly spoken by the humonculi he created.
"Sloth" he stated angrily. Angry, but hurt.
"We needed a mother. We didn't have a father to rely on, we were young boys for God's sake!"
"You and Alphonse are strong children. You would have been okay."
"What do you know?!"
Sloth was already evaporating, and just using her few last breaths to get an explanation out of Edward. It would bring her to peace. It wasn't a normal peace, but her peace.
"I would be a failure as a mother, seeing my boys like this."
"Shut up! You're not our mother…!"
These wounds won't seem to heal
This pain is just too real
There's just too much that time cannot erase
"But there's a reason I'm here, isn't there? Am I not right?" Sloth asked him. "You created me…to be her."
"but you're not…"
"I could have been!"
"You can't bring the dead back to life!" Edward yelled. There was only so much left of Sloth, she would be gone completely in a matter of seconds.
When you cried I'd wipe away all of your tears
When you'd scream I'd fight away all of your fears
I held your hand through all of these years
But you still have
All of me
"You can't…and I know. But Edward, your mother lives on." She explained. Edward froze and got caught off guard.
"Your childhood…remember her. Remember…" Sloth fully evaporated and now gone, Edward stared toward the air where the humonculus recently was.
"Sloth…" Edward spat out angrily. He hated how much she reminded him of their mom. Hated how much it hurt to look at her, hated how much she could manipulate them to think she could be Trisha.
You used to captivate me by your resonating light
Now I'm bound by the life you left behind
Your face it haunts
My once pleasant dreams
Your voice it chased away
All the sanity in me
"Take care of each other, boys…" whispers heard from the wind. It was her.
"Mom…" Edward cried. "Mom…mom." The boys only had her. She was everything to them. She was really gone.
I've tried so hard to tell myself that you're gone
But though you're still with me
I've been alone all along
"Mom…" Edward said one last time, "I'm sorry…"
So, I hope you liked it enough. And I hope it was original in the sense that their dialogue was different from really happened in the original scene or the way they were talking. I just really had to write this out of my system...the song is just so perfect for their story. I love reviews so I'll love you for reading and more for reviewing.
