snipers solve 99% of all problems - silentwalrus - Fullmetal Alchemist, Harry Potter
Ed had thought, after the whole Promised Day, homunculus, entire country harvested for alchemical batteries thing, the batshit quotient of his life would have settled down some. He really ought to have topped out the meter with that one. But no. The bullshit is just getting started.

“Are you fucking kidding me,” Ed demands. “The wizards?” (75,730 words so far)

Safe With Me by psyraah
Ed doesn't like secrets, and he definitely doesn't like Roy Mustang, at all. But the universe never listens, does it?

“It is a secret admirer!”

Al was far too happy about this. It wasn’t a secret admirer; if they really admired Ed that much, they wouldn’t send him flowers or leave sappy messages right where his brother and the whole office could see them. They wouldn’t want Ed to die of embarrassment, at the tender age of twenty-five, standing in the doorway with a blush matching the dozen red roses adorning his usually messy desk.

“Must be very wealthy,” Roy commented.

“Or a florist,” Kain supplied helpfully.

“Reckon they just nicked it from their grandma,” Jean drawled. “Don’t date someone like that, Boss.”

Relax,” the intruder says. “It’s just me.”

Ed gets a better look, and sees a black ponytail and a sharp jaw, then looks away again, cheeks hot as he sits back down and starts hunting for another rock to throw. “Yeah,” he says. “Which you is that, exactly?”

“Don’t be a dick,” he answers, and sits down next to him, cross-legged and casual, starting to sift around in the sand for his own stone. Ed makes an educated guess.

“Ling?” he asks. It comes out quieter than he’d meant it, more hopeful. Ling smiles in that sun-bright way he has, and Ed’s heart stutters. Stupid, stupid.

That was when a large, slightly uncoordinated man with a round head landed on one side of the patio in an awkward jump, looked over his shoulder, and shambled across, passing close to Methos's table and stealing half his bacon, which he chewed open-mouthed as he jumped over the wall on the other side.
