^*A/N: Hey guys! My first Crossover! I'm so excited! Now, I'm trying to keep the basic story line of FMA, but it's kind of hard to do, so go easy on me. I know that some of the lines that characters say might be off, but really who cares… I apologize for any OOC characters and my sucky writing, but once more… oh well.
Just read and enjoy!
~This story is dedicated to two people… One is my best friend Marie! She is always supportive of my stories and helps me out when I need it. Two is my awesome FMA buddy Bailey! She finally watched the show and fell in love with it and we always talk about how in love with Edward we are. XD. Bottom line you two rock my socks so don't stop reading and writing! Ich habe ein groβe Leibe fϋr dich!
Warnings: Sad themes and OOC characters.
(-: ^^ - This is a lapse in time.
Disclaimer: It's bad enough that I don't own Inuyasha, now I have to throw FMA into the mix? My life sucks and I just was to cry in a corner and write crappy fanfictions. :)
In this story, Kagome's world is well aware of Alchemy. Although they didn't use it in Japan, there were countries that actively practiced it, (like in Amestris). Kagome already knows that she can use alchemy, but never learned anything past that because she was drawn into the well.
After the final battle the jewel disappears along with Kagome's miko abilities and the well seals up. Kagome is distraught and her mother decides to move away so Kagome doesn't have to live near the memory of her friends. Once in Amestris she find comfort in practicing her Alchemy and that is where we are now. (Which happens to be right when Ed and Al get back from Liore and Xenotime, around episode 13) By the way, in this story, Souta doesn't exist… It just makes it easier to deal with if he was never born, I know it's dark, but come on.
"Mom, I want to become a State Alchemist." Kagome said with all the courage that she could muster. It took her over two days to convince herself to ask her mom.
Kagome's mothers face drained of color, but she kept her composer up. She understood full well that her daughter would join the military with or without her consent; she also knew it was a matter of time before this came up; Kagome has been practicing her alchemy almost non-stop since they moved to Amestris.
With a heavy sigh Kagome's mom answered her. "Kagome, I can't stop you from doing what you truly want to do, but just understand what being a state alchemist entitles. You're going to become a dog of the military, and you'll have to do what they say, no matter what. I just want you to think about it before you actually go through with it." Kagome sat down across from her mother at the kitchen table.
"I know mom, I have been thinking about this for the past month. I am ready to go after it. Alchemy is my life, why not expand?" Kagome's mother just nodded her head.
"Alright, you have my consent." Kagome smiled and hugged her mother. Once she pulled away she took out the papers and set them in front of her.
"You have to sign these because I'm a minor."
Her mother looked over the forms for a second. "I see they have you going to Eastern Command to prepare for the exams. When will you leave?"
"There is a train heading out tomorrow morning." Tears welled up in her mother's eyes.
"So soon? Well you better start packing." She said in a struggling voice as she signed the form, ultimately signing her daughter's life away.
"Goodbye mom, take care of you while I'm gone. I will call and send letters as often as I can to update you on how things are going." Kagome said as she pulled away from her mother, preparing to board the train to Eastern Command.
"I will, don't worry about me. You be safe out there." Kagome's mother said, wiping stray tears away from her eyes. With some final hugs and waves Kagome boarded the train, heading to her new life.
About halfway through the ride, the train came to a stop at a station so people could switch trains. Kagome didn't really pay attention to any of the passengers until she saw an odd couple step onto the metal death trap. The tall man in a suit of armor and a short young blond boy sat in the seats across from her.
'What a strange thing to wear on a train.' She thought to herself. 'But then again, everyone has their reasons for doing something.'
Just as she was about to turn her attention back to the passing scenery the suit of armor looked over to her. Kagome smiled warmly and waved, this caused the armor to laugh lightly and wave back, catching the notice of the smaller of the two. Kagome's smile faded as she paled when she saw his eyes. 'The same golden color as Inuyasha…' Kagome felt a wave of sadness and pain crash through her and she quickly turned away from the duo.
The odd couple made eye contact and both gave a shrug. They thought nothing of it and returned their attention to whatever they were doing before.
The train pulled into the Eastern City station with a screech. Kagome sighed as she stepped off the rumbling machine and out into the fresh air. She stretched out her sleeping leg muscles and searched around for map. When she did she sighed in relief. Eastern Command wasn't too far from here; it was well within walking distance.
She walked the surprisingly peaceful streets of Eastern City until she came upon Eastern Command. She looked at the letter she had, t said she was supposed to see someone named Colonel Mustang. Kagome entered the building and looked around for a second. That's when she realized she had no idea where to go. She was about to go looking for herself when someone spoke to her.
"Hello miss, are you looking for someone?" Kagome turned with a small smile to her savior.
"Actually, yes I am. I'm looking for Colonel Mustang." The man raised an eyebrow.
"The Colonel? Well, follow me. Why do you need to see him?" He started walking down a large hallway and Kagome quickly caught up and walked next to him.
"Well, I was told to see him so I could get set up for the alchemist exam." The man turned to her with a kind smile.
"Oh, I see, so you must be Kagome Higurashi then." Now it was her turn to raise an eyebrow.
"I don't mean to be rude, but how do you know my name?"
He chuckled lightly. "It's not every day that we get a lady taking the alchemy exam, let alone a minor."
Kagome nodded slightly and turned her attention to the door they just stopped in front of.
"Here is Colonel Mustang's office. Good luck on your exam." He started to walk off, but Kagome's voice stopped him.
"Umm, sir, may I ask your name?" He turned with a smile that made his un-covered eye squint.
"It's Bradley." With that he walked away.
Kagome looked back to the door and took in a deep breath. 'You can do this Kagome.' With one more breath, she reached out and knocked on the door. There was a moment of silence and then a very annoyed sounding 'Come in.'
She walked in and took notice of the blonde haired boy sitting on the couch, the kid from the train. She stopped short and he looked over at her.
"Hey, you're that girl from the train, aren't you?" Kagome did her best not to look into his eyes and nodded. Sure she was coming off as a bitch, but it was nothing against the shorty personally. The memories were just too fresh for her to deal with quite yet.
She glanced at the dark haired man sitting in the desk and something clicked in her head. She turned to look at him fully, she couldn't believe her eyes.
"You're Colonel Roy Mustang?" She asked, only thing going through her mind was that the world really is small and how stupid she was for not connecting the names together.
"Yea, but wait, you look familiar…" He trailed off, eyeing her. Kagome snorted and narrowed her eyes at him.
"Well, I hope that you would recognize you're little cousin." Mustang' eyes widened slightly and he stood up from his desk.
"Don't tell me that you're the Kagome Higurashi that's going to be taking the alchemy exam?" He said in more of a statement then a question. Kagome's smirk widened a fraction before she walked closer to his desk.
"Yes, sir, I am."
"Mila actually let you go for it?"
Kagome crossed her arms over her chest, anger slowly rising in her. Her mother's side of the family wasn't very close, and one could say it looked like they all hated each other. Mustang had walked around his desk and Kagome now stood in front of him.
"Of course she did, I have to have parental consent to take the exams don't I?"
"Well, yea, I just can't believe that she would allow you to do it. I didn't even know that you could do Alchemy…" He ran a hand through his short raven hair.
"I hate to interrupt a family reunion, but I still have some questions for you Colonel." Kagome turned to look at the blonde boy; she did feel kind of bad that she barged in here.
All the memories pushed to the back of her mind she gave him a small smile. "Oh, I'm sorry for interrupting your guys talk. I can go wait outside until you're done." She spun on her heel towards the door.
"No, it's okay; I just have one more question. Marcoh… Does that name ring any bells? He was a doctor that showed up in Xenotime and cured the poisoning caused by the red water with some stones. It was some kind of alchemy. Someone that important, the military has to have a file on him somewhere." Just as he finished the door opened and a blonde lady poked her head in, her eyes were frantic.
Men filed into the room and stood at attention in a line in front of the door. A man with the weirdest mustache Kagome has ever seen stepped forward and announced something.
"We are taking over Eastern HQ as our temporary Central Command."
Mustang also stood at attention and narrowed his eyes slightly. "What is wrong with Central Command?" A booming laugh was heard and the line of men separated.
"That's just what I thought." Kagome's eyes widened when she saw the man. 'It's that Bradley man.'
"Fuhrer Bradley." Mustang stated and Kagome's eyes nearly popped out of her head.
"Ah, Fullmetal, it seems that now I'm here in Eastern Command, you're yearly assessments will be held here, not in Central." He turned, with a smile on his face, towards Kagome. "Same thing will go for you, Kagome, the yearly alchemy exams will be held here, in two days." Kagome nodded, secretly happy that she didn't have to get on another train.
The men walked out of the room and Kagome stared at the blonde boy with an incredulous look on her face. "You're Edward Elric? The Fullmetal Alchemist?" Ed raised an eyebrow at her, and then smiled.
"Why yes I am!" Kagome furrowed her eyebrows in thought. Ed's eye twitched slightly, he knew what she was going to say next.
"Really? I knew you were young, but I never expected you to look this… young." Ed could've run around the room like an idiot. Finally! Someone didn't automatically tell him he was short for his age. "…Or short…" She finished. Ed's eye twitched again.
"Who are you calling short! You're just as short as me!" He yelled. Kagome shifted on her feet with a smirk.
"Yea, but I'm a girl. Boys are supposed to be taller than girls. And besides I'm like two or three inches taller than you."
"Yea, whatever, height doesn't matter." He walked out of the room, slamming the door on the way out. Kagome couldn't help but giggle, so easily riled up, just like Inuyasha. She felt a twinge of sadness go through her, but she ignored it and faced her cousin once more.
"So, cousin, are you going to help me study?" He let out a long sigh and nodded.
"Yea, you only have two days to study, we better get on it." Kagome sat down on the couch.
"Let's get started then."
The next two days were the most boring one's ever. Well except for the battle between Mustang and Ed that is.
