Inspired by a picture, slight EDxEnvy, only a mention of it. full summary inside


Inspired from a picture. Ed and Envy, as Envy dies. What the brothers are thinking about the other. I just want to point out that this is a bit crossed from the manga and the anime. I think it's more from the manga though, I haven't read the entire series yet.

Disclaimer: I do not own FullMetal Alchemist or any of its characters. I wish I owned Envy… but I don't.

So It Ends

Ed's POV

I see him there, frozen. I'm sitting on top of the ice, my hand over the far frozen hand of my long time enemy. He's finally gone. After all the hell he put me through, I should feel better than this. I mean, damn, who knows how many times he's tried to kill me. Or my little brother. And he poisoned my mother… how many have died because of him? Millions probably, and he loved every minute of it.

The water was freezing when he fell in. Alchemy was used to finish it. He's dead now, finally, and gone for good.

So why do I feel guilty?

I just stare at him for a while. That look on his face… what is it? Fear? For someone as evil as he was, death even scares him. His arm is stretched out, as though he knows I'm here. But why should I help him? He's a monster, inhuman with no sense of morality. Why would I help him? It's not like I can anyway, its too late.

Why do I feel like this?

Why do I feel guilty, ashamed, even… lonely? Why lonely? It was just one night. One awful night.

WHY do I feel like that?

Why does he reach for me?! ME?

I continue to stare for a while. His hair, that odd green tint to it, frozen in place. The look on his face is fear, but at the same time…arrogant. Like he's scared but doesn't want to show it. But you can see it in his eyes.

I finally make myself stand, turning away from him. I need to find Al and get out of here. I glance over my shoulder at him again, and then make my legs work again, toward the exit. I shake my head as I leave.

“Goodbye… brother.”

Envy's POV

I see him there, frozen. Not frozen like me, no, just frozen from shock I think. He's sitting on top of the ice. Honestly it didn't hurt too much. I know very soon I'll die. My stones are running out, it'll be soon.

And honestly, I'm scared. Father won't be able to get me out. He probably doesn't even care. We're just tools to him. He acts like he likes us, but I know better, I've been around too long not to get it.

Why does chibi-san stare at me like that? I ruined his life, and I had fun doing it too. I killed his mother and thus turned his brother into a suit of armor. And chibi-san is missing two limbs. I destroyed many people's lives. I committed genocide. And I loved it. Yet Edo looks… guilty. Is that loneliness? No, it couldn't be. Not loneliness. It was just one night. One… blissful night…

I swear at whatever deity there is. Hell, I was in the form of that girl he likes from that hick town he was born in. though when it ended I revealed myself. It wasn't me he was making love to, but her.

I don't care really though. I got him really good.

That's not the issue, the issue is that I'm DYING. Me, the oldest, and best looking, homunculus.

I don't want to die.

It hits me harder than the pain in my bones from the cold. I'll stop existing.

Maybe not

Maybe it'll be worse.

Maybe I'll be stuck here forever, frozen like this.

He's moving… he's leaving! No!

He can't hear me. I can't even hear myself. I scream but he doesn't hear me. I don't want him to leave, I don't want to be alone.

“Goodbye… brother.” I heard him, why can't he hear me?

Chibi-san! No, chibi-san don't go! I don't want to be alone like this!

My vision is starting to go out.


It's getting harder to think straight.

Please, I don't want to be alone!

I can't see.

Edward! Edward…

It's all black now.
