Fic: No Small Injury, Chapter Four of Nine

No Small Injury, Chapter Four: Sleeping Dogs
Setting: Fullmetal Alchemist, mangaverse, post-series so potential spoilers right up to Chapter 100. Practically guaranteed to be jossed.
Characters/pairings: Roy/Ed (UST and subtext), Havoc/Rebecca Catalina, Al, Hawkeye, ensemble.
Warnings: R for sweary mouths, and some violence and blood and guts too. Sadly smut-free.
Word count: 9910 words this chapter.
Summary: two years on from the Promised Day. As Mustang's faction struggles for power with Hakuro's, the Amestrian Army is one gunshot away from a civil war. Now 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 thanks are owed to star beta of fic and illos enemytosleep . Sorry about the bit of a wait this time, guys - this chapter kicked my ass at first.
