Whew! I spent ALL NIGHT working on this piece that my hand feels dead xD Okay not really, but still. I'm SUPER PLEASED with the way this came out. The image in the circle in the corner is what Edward and Winry are looking back at. I drew this from a one-shot/drabble I wrote today for my EdxWin themes. Basically the brothers have returned home and the date is Oct 3rd. Any diehard FMA will understand the significance in Oct 3rd. I don't feel like explaining it all tonight. I'm too tired and ready for bed. Anyway, here's the dialogue from it to give you a better understanding at what's going on.
"All of this is my sin, of what I tried to do and where I landed my little brother, who didn't even deserve this in the first place. This is my curse and it'll continue to haunt me until I can atone for what I've done," the alchemist told her, voice choked. He lowered his head, allowing his long golden bangs to curtain his face from Winry's view.
Sighing, Winry released his arm and walked around to face him. She grasped his damp cheeks in her hands, raising his face to look at hers. God, he looked so torn. "You can't continue to think like that Edward. What would Al say if he could hear you right now? If he could see the way his big brother was right now? Is that why you didn't want him to come, so you could continue to stand here, torment yourself and blame yourself for everything that happened? You were so young Ed, so young and all you wanted was your mom. If you had known it would lead to something like this, then it never would have happened. You can't constantly let all of this weigh you down. It's not just your burden to shoulder. Al's shouldering it as well. He doesn't want you to feel like you have to handle this all on your own," Winry tried so desperately hard to explain. Her azure orbs searched his, flicking back and forth between his golden ones. She could see tear beads clinging to his lashes like fresh morning dew. "So please, stop torturing yourself, Edward. You've been through enough," the mechanic pleaded.
Edward sighed and closed his eyes, causing the unshed tears in his eyes to travel down his cheeks and onto Winry's hands still cupping his face. He growled and stepped back from her brushing them away furiously. "I can't promise anything, but I'll try...I'll try and rid myself from the ghosts of my past. I need to do it for Al," he told her, straightening his shoulders. Winry watched him as he lingered for another moment in front of what used to be his home and then turned on his heal. He reached out and wrapped his index and middle finger around Winry's. The two began to make their way down the hill. Edward stopped, gazing over his shoulder with a fiercely determined look on his face.
"Come on Ed," Winry stated, tugging at his fingers that were still locked with hers. "Leave it behind. Don't spend your days here drowning in your past," she told him tenderly. "Let's go home. I'll make us a cup of hot cocoa."
"Yeah, you're right," he agreed once more. With a nod of his golden head, Edward turned around, his hand still clasped with Winry. "Let's go home."
The two turned their backs to the shadows of the devastation that had taken place so many years ago. "I'm lucky I have you...to help me through this crap, Winry," the alchemist told her in a quiet voice as they headed back towards the Rockbell home
