Title: Ripples – Chapter 1
Series: Brotherhood (although it can stand on its own) - Legend!verse, part II
Pairing: Roy/Ed, Al/SECRET
Summary: Rumors are stirring just like Ed's boredom, and the world begins to change. "You shall be as gods, knowing good and evil."
Notes: This is the last chapter in which we really see Roy or hear his point of view until the end. Roy is doing his thing in Central while Ed is on an adventure. While this is about Ed it is just as much about Al. Ripples is going to focus on Al for much of the time while Ed is doing “all the boring stuff”. I’m very excited that I’m going to be able to write Al, he’s just as interesting as his brother. In other words, I highly doubt this is going to be an NC-17 story, except perhaps, an end chapter or two.

Title: Ripples – Chapter 1
Timeline, History, Facts, Extras, People, Important Events.
I’ve created this information section as I anticipate that some confusion may arise as the timeline is a little strange. I’ve written oneshots out of order, some taking place after certain fics that haven’t been written yet. Hopefully this will clean up some confusion about what happens when
Part I: Wild
Part II: Ripples
Side story: Waltz
Side story: Snowy Days & Good Times
Part III: Futur
Wild! picks up two years after the manga, it takes place in the late summer, early fall of 1917. Although I took some liberties with Ed’s height, and made him shorter than Roy, just like I made the trip Ed was supposed to take at eighteen right after they got back to Risembool. He and Winry never like each other in other words. This makes Ed eighteen when he returns to Central. The span of the story of Wild! is about three weeks. They spend two weeks loitering about in Central and a week out searching for El Dorado.
Ripples is set two years after Wild! making Ed twenty. This story takes place over a course of three months in the late winter (December – February) of 1918/1919
Waltz takes place the summer of Ripples. (1920)
Snowy Days & Good Times takes place in December 1921
Future begins in the spring of 1922
Ages & Birthdays
It, as far as I was aware, never listed Ed’s birth month besides the fact it was in winter. With some calculations and extraneous information floating about on the internet there was the conclusion he was born in December 1899, which makes sense as he was twelve in 1911. So therefore I set his birthday to December 1899. As to Roy, he is fourteen years older than Ed, which makes him thirty-two in Wild!. To make things easy I made his birthday in November
Most of the canon characters make an appearance in these fics. Mainly we see Roy, Ed and Al though. Some of the other’s we see are Winry, Mei, Havoc, Hawkeye, Breda, Falman, Fuery, Ling and some of the other side characters that make appearances in the manga like the Hughes family
