After watching episode eighteen of Clannad After Story and crying my EYES out for fifteen minutes straight, I thought I'd get started on this romantic fanfiction based on an online news article I read.

So, it's Ed & Winry… manga-verse! Because if you're a real EdWin fan, you know it pawns the anime in all aspects.

Five Times Winry's Sexy to Ed
When She Locks Eyes and Smiles

When Edward walked into Winry's bedroom that day he wasn't expecting anything out of the ordinary. She sat in front of her mirror, widely grinned as if to check her teeth, and then started to run her fingers through her long blonde hair. He stood behind her and she gasped.

"Jerk," She hissed, "Where did you come from?" She asked, leaning her neck back to look him in the eyes, hers cross and his playful. He grinned and ruffled her hair and she shooed his hand away, fixing the out of place strands as she looked at herself in the mirror once again.

"Why are you preening yourself anyway?" He reached over her shoulder and grabbed her hair brush, examined it as if he had no idea what the object he held in his hand was called, and placed it back down where she had left it. He shrugged his shoulders as he waited for her answer.

"You're the one taking me out; don't you want me to look nice?" She asked as she looked over her shoulder to get a better look at him. He looked tidy and handsome. A nice suit and his long hair tied in a crisp pony-tail. She shook her head. "Boys…" She sighed, "I bet it only took a few minutes to look that good."

"You think I look good?" He asked, looking down at his outfit. Alphonse had laid it out for him, though of course he wouldn't tell her that. (He really didn't have a choice in the matter any how, considering his younger brother flat out told him he had no sense in taste.)

"Uh-huh." She nodded her head once and then stood up to walk over to her closet. She gazed at her clothing rack and contemplated for a moment. She looked back over at Edward, who had just sat down where she had been a moment before.

"Come here." She waved him over and he rose to his feet just as quick as he had sat down, standing beside her.

"What?" The way he said it almost sounded like a whine.

"Don't say that." She snapped, "I'm doing this for you."

"I don't care what you wear Winry." He could have added to that statement, something along the lines of…you look beautiful in anything, but he thought his head might have exploded if he had said it.

"Why do you have to be so difficult?" She loudly groaned, "Here…" She leaned in and pulled out two different dresses and walked to her bed. She laid them both down and he gazed at them. Both of the dresses were long but differentiated in style and color. He looked at both of them long and hard for a moment before he turned back to Winry who still had her eyes on the garments. "Choose." She told him sternly.

"Aw, damn it Winry…"

"Come on Ed, stop being such a stubborn ass." She nudged him and walked away to close her door and finish getting ready in other aspects, such as her hair and make up. And all the while Edward stared down at her dresses, hoping not to make the wrong choice and accidentally end up pissing Winry off.

From behind him she pulled off her shirt and shorts and put on an under slip feet first. Finding herself seemingly presentable she stood next to Edward who kept his eyes downwards.

"I'm proud." She told him smugly and he glanced up quickly.

"For what?" He barked and she gave him a condescended smile, leaning back on one leg and crossing her arms over her chest.

"You didn't even look away to watch me get undressed." She reached up to pat his head and he pushed her hand away, resulting in a brief outbreak of her laughter. He rolled his eyes and pointed to the dress on the left.

"This one." He said bitterly, like he was starting to regret this whole thing.

"Why?" She asked with a laugh and he spitefully sighed.

"I dunno, it's…umm, a dark shade of blue? It'll…uh, go with your eyes…" He let his voice trail off at the end as if he wasn't sure that was the right answer, yet she kept her eyes down on the garment like she was confirming the fact for herself.

"Sure, okay." She smiled to herself and picked it up, and pulled it off the hanger. She pulled down the long zipper and stepped into it, placing the straps over her shoulders she reached back to zip it up as far as it would go.

"Oh, finish it up for me." She turned her back to him and he reached for the metal nub, pulling it all the way up to the top awkwardly. It was moments like this he wished he could more physically forward with her; she was so good at being natural.

She turned and smoothed out her dress, went back to her mirror and smiled to herself.

"Well, Mr. Elric, do you approve?" She spun slowly in a circle, still barefoot and he of course, nodded.

"Yes, now can we go?" He questioned impatiently as he walked over towards her closet to fetch Winry's "fancy" shoes. She sat down on the edge of her bed and moved one foot up and down as I silent means of signaling she wanted him to put them on for her.

He kneeled down and did so without a word and she laughed.

"I must be your Princess now Ed!" She joked when the task was finished. His reply was a grumbled sound beneath his breath. She giggled and he looked up at her face. As quick as the glance came he found her expression emotionless.

She stared at him and he stared back, blue into yellow. Moments passed as they locked eyes…tick, tock, tick.

And then…


She smiled…

And it took his breath away.

It was so simple, something she did all the time. She just smiled at him.

And suddenly he found her incredibly sexy; her bright smile was almost like a subtle call. He placed his hand on the side of her face and the smile became smaller and smaller, then non-existent as her eyes closed. He leaned up from his spot on the floor and let his lips press into hers, let himself take her in for a moment before pulling away and grabbing her hand.

"Come on, let's go." He pulled gently as she stood up to follow him out of the room and down the stairs.

"What a nice way to start off the evening." He heard her say behind him…and he knew she was smiling as she said it too.
