Rating: G
Warnings: Ed's not quite right in the head, so some of what he says or does might come across as disturbing? Don't think it warrants tagging though, nobody's dying painfully in technicolor graphic detail.

Summary: “Yeah, yeah, I know. You’re doin’ your best. It’s just your best isn’t quite good enough, Colonel. So while you’re doing whatever the hell it is you do, I’ll be here cleaning up after you.”

Rogue alchemists were always a lot of trouble and paperwork, but the Demon Alchemist was special. He was the kind of vigilante that anyone could get behind. He never tackled situations that were morally gray; he stuck to rapists and murderers and people only a mother could tolerate. He’d been at this for three years, and by now, he was a hero to the average person on the street. They (the newspapers, not the military) had given him the title Demon Alchemist in honor of his tendency to transmute demon-shaped rocks and hurl them at deserving people. It was the kind of thing that made for an instant fan following.

All of which would have been fine if he hadn’t been a serial killer. (Though sometimes the hypocrisy of that thought choked Roy to a standstill.) A heroic serial killer. What was the law supposed to do about that?

Giant headache.

Reccer's Notes: Or, That Fic Where Metisket Killed Al And Made Ed Crazy. How fun.

So, metisket! Very awesome. May be better known for being the author of the Teen Wolf fic(s) play it again. Has this ability to put angst and humor and character analysis in a blender and have a masterpiece come out. The kind that takes your heart without you noticing and plays it like a xylophone or something except you have already been eaten by the fic and are past caring.

Additional note: this fic is part of a series.

(Though, yeah, metisket's strengths lie more in characterization and gut-bustingly funny writing than plot)
