Story: The Properties of the Elements
Author: beccastareyes
Fandom: Full Metal Alchemist
Genre: Character Background
Pairing/Character: Roy
Summary: Seven interconnected ficlets on Roy Mustang, framed around a passing conversation as he prepares to try for the position of State Alchemist.

Squeeing: Not the most impartial rec, since the fic was written for me, but I enjoyed it so I wanted to share. ^_^

I very much like this - it's a gen study of Roy, bringing different aspects of his life together. It uses some short scenes to "piece" together a picture of Roy, showing some of the things that made him who he was. There's plenty of little details that just ring very true for me.

I particularly love the "early Ed" presented in this fic, and Roy's reaction to him.

Excerpt: We State Alchemists don't classify well, so the military gives us titles, so field commanders know what they are getting, Fullmetal.
