ed the bodyguard

anonymous asked:

Is Kev still Eds only bodyguard?

Officially, yes. I guess my application got lost in the mail. 

But I like to think of Kevin as a first responder, while everyone else who travels with Ed is backup in case he ever needs reinforcements. :)

I’m so here for an AU where Ed and Al both travel to Xing after Brotherhood and then Winry comes up to do repairs and is like “Wow Ed your boyfriend’s bodyguard is hot does she need a mechanic” like please give me Edling, Winfan, and Almei all happening at the same time and all the kids just end up living in Xing together

Rock Your Bodyguard [AO3]

Pairing: Roy Mustang/Edward Elric; also feat. Ling Yao, Riza Hawkeye, Jean Havoc, and Barry the Chopper

Rating: PG-13 (Ed swears a lot; Roy is… Roy)

Summary: Edward Elric wasn’t expecting an especially pleasant job after his last assignment as a bodyguard went pear-shaped, but—

A pop star?

And as if the degrading position weren’t enough, world-famous pop idol Roy Mustang seems to have a complete and utter disregard for his safety as long as he gets to have fun.

(Or, the AU in which Ed is a cranky bodyguard, Roy is a loud exhibitionist power bottom, and Ed will never get the glitter out of his suits.)

Notes: Happy Birthday to @obersten!  Have chapter one of a fic inspired by your Manboy AU like you didn’t know it was coming.  Like Roy will be.  Loudly.  Thank you for being awesome!

Massive shout out to @grandadmiral for being the Roy to my Ed and being my go-to for his dialogue, as well as @verbosewordsmith for her infinite bandom nerdass knowledge <3  (And I am frantically praying that Backstreet Boys are still relevant enough to be referenced.)

Ed stared down at the file in his hand, doing his best to keep his expression neutral as he read through the assignment.  He wasn’t very good at it.

“Are you fucking kidding me?” he gritted out.  Ling just smiled pleasantly.

“I would never kid with you, Edward.  I think this will be a good fit—“

Ed closed the folder with a snap.  “A fuckin’ pop star?”

“Not just any pop star,” Ling chided gently, though there was a tiny bit of a smirk on his lips.  “Manboy Mustang.

“Pop garbage.”

Fandom: Fullmetal Alchemist

Pairing: again, Roy/Ed if you squint really really hard

Rating: G

Notes: post-Brotherhood UA, where Roy is the Fuhrer and Ed is his sort-of bodyguard. One-shot.

Summary: Had he been any more conscious than he was, he thinks he’d have contemplated death. He’d have laughed himself silly, thinking something like, “Of course, the one and only Flame Alchemist would die by drowning. Of course.” But darkness and colors fuzzy under his eyelids keep him from actually thinking coherent thoughts, so he doesn’t.


He remembers cold. Seeping cold, wrapping all over him, wet and suffocating and dark; he remembers a familiar voice yelling for him, remembers panic and fear clouding his senses, until it was over.

Had he been any more conscious than he was, he thinks he’d have contemplated death. He’d have laughed himself silly, thinking something like, “Of course, the one and only Flame Alchemist would die by drowning. Of course.” But darkness and colors fuzzy under his eyelids keep him from actually thinking coherent thoughts, so he doesn’t.

Everything is quiet, and dark, and nothing. If he were any more coherent, awake, alive, perhaps he’d have felt panic at the state he was in. Perhaps he’d have wondered, worried about his life, and the life of his subordinates who he’d brought along because he didn’t have a choice- being the Fuhrer meant no privacy, no sense of complete safety because there would always (always) be someone against him who’d want him dead.

He breathes, and he tastes the scent of hospital in his mouth.
