Fic: No Small Injury, Chapter Nine of Nine

Title:No Small Injury, Chapter Nine: Interesting Times
Setting: Fullmetal Alchemist, mangaverse, post-series, yet plotted out way last year. Hence is now AU on significant plot points.
Characters: Roy/Ed (UST and subtext), Havoc/Rebecca, Al, Hawkeye, ensemble.
Warnings: R for sweary mouths
Word count: 8113
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). enemytosleep has betaed both fic and illos wonderfully. I seriously couldn't have done it without her. A round of applause for her, please!
More notes: This is the final chapter! A sequel is in the works. In the meantime, those curious about what really went on in Riza's stay in Miles' apartment can find out here.
Super bonus omake fun: DIY omake! Ask the characters any question in this thread, and, channelled by me, they will answer it.

DIY Omake: the No Small Injury Character Q and A! And the official No Small Injury theme tunes

It's simple: just as with those character question memes that go around occasionally, ask any of the characters in No Small Injury a question by commenting on this thread, and I shall have them answer you in their own words. What's Rebecca's favourite pizza topping? Who was Al's first shag? How does Katzenklavier sleep at night? Ask away.

BTW, feel free to bend the rules and ask characters not appearing in the story a question. Does Emperor Ling ever miss the great outdoors? How much is Garfiel going to throttle Ed when he sees him next? etc. The Q and A is of course Wrong Turn 'verse, hence Olivia would be telling you her favourite dessert from beyond the grave, rather than from the Wall of Briggs.

Also, because I'm self-indulgent like that, I had a think one day as to what the theme tune of No Small Injury would be. I decided it would be:
Scott Walker, "Get Behind Me"

enemytosleep, my lovely beta/editor/vice-president of Wrong Turn 'verse, also chose a theme. Hers is significantly more badass:
All That Remains, "It Dwells in Me"
