Thanks to enemytosleep for the advice and cheerleading.
yhlee prompted me with Riza Hawkeye: how did she come through her stint as a sniper with an intact conscience? (But really, almost anything you do with her--whether it's something lighthearted with Black Hayate or her friendship with Rebecca or something darker and more serious--will be fine! The above is just a suggestion.)
It was an awesome prompt and I thank her for it. Rebecca and Riza's friendship is only dealt with in three scenes in the manga, but there's so much great stuff in that little thumbnail sketch. Besides that we get to see Riza's sweet, snarky off-duty personality, it seems like Rebecca kind of plays Maes to her Roy - her daft antics bring Riza out of her shell, but there's some deep comradeship beneath the silly surface. Like Maes, Rebecca is also secretly an incredible badass. Riza has been through some tough stuff, and strong as she is, I like to think Rebecca's friendship has been a source of support and warmth through the years.
