I'm going to have to explain myself a little here. I really am very sorry to keep you way from the story, but this is just explaining the formatting and the guidelines ect so if you don't want to you can just skip ahead to the first chapter. I would suggest reading this though if you haven't already.
This is a sequel to my story Good For the Soul which followed Al and Mei from when Al arrived in Xing as an Ambassador to when they confess their love to each other. It is not necessary to have read GFTS first, but it would make things better.
It follows the same format at GFTS, which, if you are not familiar with it, is an odd mix between a oneshot collection and a chapter story. Each of the chapters follows a particular timeline and situation, but each of them tells its own story, sometimes coupled with a previous or following story. The only main plotline they follow is the story of Al and Mei's lives after they confessed their love for each other.
I update every Sunday, almost always without fail. The chapters are grouped together based on time periods. For example, the first set of chapters are all going to be leading up to the proposal. There are NOT going to be any AU chapters like there were in GFTS.
There will be heavy EdWin and LingFan and probably a healthy dose of Royai too, as well as other canon pairings. Expect lots of cute fluffy shots full of embarrassing moments. There will be dark moments, (you know, blood, assassinations, pain, small scale heartbreak) but on the whole it's happy. I like happiness.
I'll take a moment here to tell you all up front that I don't Fullmetal Alchemist. I don't, never have, and never will. As sad as that makes me.
