Fic: No Small Injury, Chapter One of Nine

My small but perfectly formed flist may have heard me go on about a multi-part sequel to Wrong Turn. This is it! There will be mystery, action, suspense, cliffhangers, chapter illustrations, hopefully a few lulz and of course, buckets of sexual tension. This is also a sequel to Fight On, Second Lieutenant!, because Havoc and Rebecca won't leave my brain alone. Not necessary to read either before you read this fic, but if you're curious about how Havoc ended up back in the army and fraternising with Rebecca, do look up the latter.

No Small Injury, Chapter One: the Way to a Man's Heart

Setting: Fullmetal Alchemist, mangaverse, post-series so potential spoilers right up to Chapter 98. Practically guaranteed to be jossed. 
Roy/Ed (UST and subtext, I'm afraid), Havoc/Rebecca Catalina, Al, Hawkeye, ensemble.
Warnings: R for blood and guts, and for sweary mouths. Sadly smut-free.
Word count: 5987 words this chapter.
Summary: two years on from the Promised Day. Amestris is an unstable and changeable place. Mustang's faction is locked in a fierce, nominally legal power struggle with Hakuro's, and the Amestrian Army is one gunshot away from a civil war. Now it looks like someone may have fired that shot. Meanwhile, Alphonse is on the verge of a discovery, Mustang could really use some sleep, and Rebecca and Havoc totally aren't getting any work done. Perhaps more worryingly still, the Fullmetal Alchemist is bored, heartbroken and at a loose end.
Notes: Illustrated fic is illustrated (by me). Many, many thanks to my ace beta enemytosleep. If you're currently trying to remember who Rebecca is, we first meet her in Ch. 83 of the manga, here
