Fullmetal Alchemist Drabble: Natural Mistake

Title: Natural Mistake

Fandom: Fullmetal Alchemist

Author: badly_knitted

Characters: Ed and Al Elric.

Rating: G

Spoilers: Early in the manga.

Summary: It’s a natural mistake to make.

Word Count: 100

Content Notes: None needed.

Written For: Challenge #145: Metal at fan_flashworks

Disclaimer: I don’t own Fullmetal Alchemist, or the characters; they’re the property of Hiromu Arakawa.

A/N: The obvious fandom for the prompt. It’s just a drabble, but the idea popped into my head and demanded to be written, so here it is.

A lot of people mistakenly assume that it’s Al who’s the legendary Fullmetal Alchemist, simply because of his metal armour. They stare at him in awe and admiration, barely sparing a glance for his ‘big’ brother, dwarfed by Al’s hulking metal shell.

They’re wrong of course; Ed’s uniform and pristine white gloves ably conceal his automail arm and leg, making him look normal, even ordinary, beside his brother.

Only when they see him in action do they realise their mistake, their eyes widening with amazement at his strength and speed.

Al may look impressive, but it’s Ed who’s the fighter.

The End
