Fic: The Compass Rose, Chapter 7/9

Sooo … I'm not on LJ much these days. Quick life update: the twins are three, life is busy but fun, and I'm writing fic again! I think most of my readers are on Ao3 these days, but posting here for completeness and in case anyone wanted to say HI. HI! (I'm on Tumblr btw, come see me!)

Title: The Compass Rose: Chapter Seven
Characters/Pairings: Roy/Ed, Riza/Miles, Havoc/Rebecca, Al, Winry, Team Mustang, Ling, Ran Fan, and more 
Rating: R for swears, violence and horror at about canon levels.
Word Count: 13042
Summary: An infant Homunculus under the command of an idiot ruler: this can't end well. Two and a half years after the Promised Day, the struggle for Amestris goes on. The military's old guard have seized power from Roy's band of reformers, aided by a horrifically dangerous experiment: they've been growing their own Homunculus. Now, separated to the four corners of the map, Team Mustang fight to evade their enemies and reach safety, to retreat and rally their forces - and to find a path to victory.
Notes:  Post-manga, slightly AU from Ch 105. Direct sequel to The Phoney War. Illustrated: chapters 3 onwards illustrated by me; chapters 1 and 2 illustrated by my talented Big Bang art team a_big_applealasse_mirimielscatter_muse and hikaru_9.
