Day 1 of Winterhawk week. :) Due to work stuff I wasn’t able to work in the themes to my offerings but hopefully people will like them regardless. I titled this one “Don’t Say It” (hopefully for obvious reasons).
Sort of inspired from a screenshot from ‘Whose Line is It Anyways?”, though I don’t think the expression translated perfectly.
Summary: Alphonse was determined to break out of the hospital and achieve the one thing he had dreamed of doing ever since being trapped in the armor. And Lieutenant Hawkeye was going to help him do it. Parental!RizaAl fluff involving a daring escape plan and a very wonderful, magical, fluffy cat.
A/N: So this 3,000+ word long fanfic began as an idea I had yesterday that was only meant to be about 300 words long. But then, instead of just crying about Al, I began crying about the beautiful parental relationship he had with Riza. Honestly, Parental!RizaAl (idk if that’s the name or not) is super underrated, and that disappoints me. But I’m determined to have content, even if I have to make it myself, dammit.
This takes place about a week and a half after the Promised Day, before everyone has gotten out of the hospital, and before Al has gotten his hair cut.
I hope everyone enjoys reading this as much as I enjoyed writing it! Tell me what you think!
“Lieutenant Hawkeye, I need your
help,” Alphonse Elric rolled his wheelchair closer to the Lieutenant’s bed,
where she sat with a light pink shawl across her shoulders, reading a novel. The
wheels of his chair squeaked as he rolled them across the tile floor, and the
noise prompted Hawkeye to look up.
“Help with what, Al?” She smiled as
she looked at him, and placed the book down by her side to get a better look at
Al’s face. She had a habit of doing that, ever since the first time she’d laid
her eyes on the boy’s new body. And though Hawkeye was fantastic at hiding her
emotions, Al could see her face light up at the sight of his.
“Something more important than
anything I’ve ever done before,” Al continued, his face deadly serious as he
looked up at the Lieutenant.
