Alone

I just found out today that someone from my past- a friend that I only known briefly, but cared for like a brother, had passed away over a year ago. If it hadn't been for this fandom, and an offhanded comment that someone had made in thier LJ, I never would have found out.

This is for binaryalchemist who was fortunate enough to know this kind soul as well. Fate let me find you, and fate binds us by a mutual friend who is no longer with us.

And this is for you, Tacoma. Sleep well, friend. *raises a piece of sushi in your honor*

Title: Alone
Characters: Mustang and Hughes
Rating: PG
Disclaimer: Angsty and sad.




Yearning...

"I... I was never able to tell you..."

I have a hole in my heart...

"I was always mad at you.. when you would talk about them.. talk about.. *HER*..."

I never got to tell you what you meant to me...

"You thought it was because you were loud and annoying, and would *never* shut up about them..."

And then you were gone and it was too late...

"But that wasn't the reason at all..."

It was because...

"I was jealous of you. She had *YOU*, and I had nothing..."

I could never tell you while you were alive...

"You were perfect together, husband and wife and daughter..."

I was alone, always alone...

"And the one thing in this world that I wanted..."

The one thing that was most important to me- that was so close, and so unattainable...

"I could never have..."

Slipped away from me...

"Good bye, Maes."

I love you.

My eyes aren't leaking, it's just rain.

I think Tacoma must feel very honoured by your tribute, Seaweed. My deepest condolences and a warm hug to you and the Binary Alchemist, too.

My condolences. I'm sure, whoever your friend is, would have loved this story.

I'm sure they're reading, and perhaps Maes is too.

::warmest hugs:: Ohhh...Ty would have loved this! And here's the part I hadn't told you--guess who was the one who grabbed me by the arm and said "I've seen your show! This anime--this Fullmetal Alchemist on Adult Swim? You have to see it!" Tacoma went on and on and on about FMA so much that I refused to watch it because he was driving me up the wall!

Now: flash forward...you and I are BOTH writing FMA fanfics, friend each other and you read that Paul The Steward from Fifty Trips was inspired by Tacoma Youngblood. And if I'd driven up to see him when he called me that first time, we undoubtedly would have met. It really IS a small world after all.

And you wondered if Ty would have remembered you after all this time?
ABSOLUTELY. That man had a heart ten times the size of his tiny body.

Thank you...thank you so much for such a lovely fic!

Heh. I could see him liking a show like this.
I had some sushi last night and thought fondly of him. :)
