Hey all, I had this really cute idea on Christmas eve, and I just got it back from my beta. She is soooo awesome for reading over this so quickly. I hope you all laugh as much as I did when I first had the idea.

Sorry, but no yaoi in this one. FMA does not belong to me and never will.

"Al, I've finally figured it out, it all makes sense now!" Edward shouted excitedly as he entered their apartment and slammed the door.

Al walked into the living room with a towel in his hand, obviously just coming out of the kitchen. "What are you talking about, Brother? Have you finished your research for that special project you were hinting about?"

"Not quite Al, I'm still working on that, but I have a lot of evidence that proves my hypothesis. I have to thank Elicia for giving me the idea. I don't know how I came up with the idea in the first place, but after thinking back over all of our meetings, it suddenly makes sense."

Edward saw confusion pass through Al's brilliant gold eyes, which were only a few shades darker than his own. Edward smiled slightly, finally happy to have his brother back to normal.

"How can a seven year old have given you the idea for this mystery project, and why haven't you told me about it before? I could have helped you with the research."

"Well, as you know, I was babysitting her while Hughes and Gracia went out to dinner a few weeks ago and she insisted on listening to Christmas carols. One of the ones she wanted me to sing with her was 'Santa Claus is Coming to Town'."

"Oh Gate, don't tell me you started thinking what I think you're thinking." Al interrupted

"Just listen, it all makes sense. Well, it got me thinking, and it's the only logical explanation."

Al sighed and brought a hand up to rest his head against. "Alright, tell me the evidence that supports your theory."

Edward reached into his jacket pocket and brought out a dog-eared notebook and flipped the pages to the fabric bookmark.

"First, there was that that incident with the train on our first trip to Central; there is no way he could have known about that. Second, he knew about everything we did in Aquroya, even though there were no witnesses. Third-"

"Alright, the fact that you went all the way back to the very beginning when you first met him tells me how much thought you have put into this research. But let me say one thing, you have never believed in him before, so why are you starting now?"

Edward frowned at this brother's lack of acceptance. "Al, the research proves it. If it can be proven I'll believe it, and I just proved it."

"That didn't make any sense, but go ahead and tell me."

"Through all my research I have scientifically concluded that Roy Mustang is Santa Claus!"

I hope you all enjoyed this and I'm sorry it couldnt be up for Christmas. Merry Christmas, Happy holidays, and a happy New Years to everyone! :D
