Fic: No Small Injury, Chapter Six of Nine

Title:No Small Injury, Chapter Six: Spare the Excuses
Setting: Fullmetal Alchemist, mangaverse, post-series so potential spoilers right up to Chapter 100. Highly likely to be jossed and end up AU.
Characters/pairings: Roy/Ed (UST and subtext), Havoc/Rebecca Catalina, Al, Hawkeye, ensemble.
Warnings: R for sweary mouths and a bit of violence.
Word count: 11168
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.
Notes: Illustrated fic is illustrated (by me). As ever, thanks for superb beta-age of both fic and illos to enemytosleep. This time she betaed in the midst of major house renovations, so please be giving her double the applause. Extra thanks this issue to papa enemytosleep for vintage car advice, and to cornerofmadness and papa cornerofmadness for gun and ballistics information.

Extra bonus fun! enemytosleep wrote me a Wrong Turn 'verse fic for fmagiftexchange. It rocks, and enemytosleep writes the most spot-on, hilarious Rebecca ever. See Rebecca and Havoc attempt to set Riza up on a blind date in "Friday Night, Date Night" over on enemy's lj.

ETA: extra extra potential bonus fun! I'm offering fic and art - not just FMA! - at the Haiti charity auction. Please do bid if you feel moved to do so. I'll do all kinds of pairings and genres not covered in this fic, so if you fancy a little Royai or Ling/Ran Fan, or - shock! gen, you know what, I'll totally oblige.
