Rating: PG-13 for swears, porcine transmutation, and Team Mustang at work
Word Count: 6398
Summary: While the Chief practices his best vengeful face and looks up the recipe for a fake corpse in some freaky alchemy cookbook, Breda and the rest of Team Mustang get to deal with the really annoying bits of this operation.
Notes: Written for a_big_apple, for fmagiftexchange's Yule 2010 Round, with the prompt: the Tachi, especially Breda, secret mission. Set off-page during the events of Chapters 35 and 36 of the manga (the Maria Ross arrest arc). Begins immediately after the flashback that spans the first twelve pages of Chapter 41, which, since mysterious story arc is mysterious, you might want to reread first. Thanks to enemytosleep for cheerleading and betaing beyond the call of duty, and thanks to evil_little_dog for the vivid pig-wrangling description.
