12 Days of Drabbles! Day 1 - "Even the Bird Hates It"  
It's just after midnight, but I'm still up (Term paper is like 70% finished. woo.) so I thought I might as well post it!

This is the first of my 12 Days of Drabbles. Every day from now until the 24th, I'll post a drabble loosely based on a line from "12 Days of Christmas". By loosely based, I mean "kinda sorta maybe could see it coming from there" because I don't know how I'd fit 10 leaping lords into a fic. ;; /lazy

Anyway, here's Day 1! Hope you enjoy!

Day 1 - "Partridge"
Title: Even the Bird Hates It
Rating: PG
Series: Brotherhood
Word Count: 213
Characters: Roy, Riza
Summary: A bird has an opinion on Roy's mustache.



“—it’s ungrateful; all the smoothing I did after that incident in West City. He should learn to be more respectful.”

Hawkeye gave a sigh. “I suppose, Sir.”

They stepped out the doors of Central Military HQ and out into an overcast sky. “And did you see what FullMetal sent me?”

“You mean the pictures of his new daughter?” Hawkeye said with a little smile.

“No, in the letter,” Roy frowned, adjusting the hat on his head. “He asked me if you had been drawing on my face with a grease pen.”

His subordinate tried hard not to laugh. “Well it’s…different, Sir.”

“Hmph.” Roy ran his finger across the proud mustache on his upper lip. “I’m going to be Furher one day, and I need to look the part.”

There was a caw of a bird as they passed under a tree. “If you say so, Sir.”

Another caw and a brown form took off in a fluttering of wings. The tiny shadow passed over them both, and then—

Splat!

Roy froze on the spot, horrified expression on his face as a gooey white substance dripped off the brim of his hat.

For her credit, Hawkeye tried very hard not to laugh. “Well, Sir, I think someone around here has expressed their opinion.”

This is hilarious and I have to agree with the bird! I'm looking forward to more. Thanks for sharing! ;-)

I think we all agree with the bird. Thanks for reading!

LOL... not even the bird likes the 'stache.

because I don't know how I'd fit 10 leaping lords into a fic. ;;

It could be a nightmare fic... someone is having a terrible Armstrong nightmare...

No one likes the 'stache. XD

Meh, I'm thinking of doing 'lord' for that prompt, and using it to slip Olivia in there and talk about her time with the 'top brass' of the military late in the manga...I like Olivia, can you tell? XD

XD What's not to like about a woman who takes no shit and can shoulder a bazooka. Like... ♥ I look forward to Day 10 XD
Kitinulovinkit on December 13th, 2010 06:42 am (UTC)
I think right now, my idea for Day 11 is my favorite. XD 'Pipes'. I won't say anymore other than it's not the type of pipe you make music out of. XD

Good thing Roy wasn't looking up... XD
Kitinulovinkit on December 13th, 2010 06:28 am (UTC)
Good thing indeed. XD

Haha, poor Roy indeed. Having a mustache doesn't make you look the part, m'kay? :P

Oh, real quick been reading some of your other stuff in this journal as a closet reader and love your writing. You don't mind if I friend you nor bother you when it's your turn making FMA Fic Contest banners :P?
Kitinulovinkit on December 13th, 2010 07:36 am (UTC)
Exactly. That mustache needs to go.

Nope, don't mind at all. :D

I bet anything Ed's going to become like Hughes, give him a few years. :)

I totally don't remember if I ever commented on one of your things or not...

I probably didn't, knowing me and my epic fail. Your fanfiction is awesome and your capsummaries are great. Vidsummaries too XD.

Would you mind terribly if I friended you?
Kitinulovinkit on December 13th, 2010 06:21 pm (UTC)
Thanks! <3

Nope, don't mind at all! :)

Heh, awesome.

I tend to explain the mustache by the fact that these pictures are probably in some album of Ed's, and Ed just drew on the picture.
Kit: Royaiinulovinkit on December 14th, 2010 02:05 am (UTC)
That is the most logical explanation.

I still like the idea of everying, including Hawkeye, being WTF about the 'stache, though.
(Anonymous) on December 15th, 2010 02:35 am (UTC)
funny thing...
the moustache was a mistake by the animation team with brotherhood XD
