Hands Clean:: Supposed Crimes

(#) Moondragon 2007-09-11

- With too much blood behind his eyes to be a boy and not enough time on his skin to be a man.

That sentence made me fall head over heals in love with this story.

- In sleeping, Edward Elric might teeter somewhere between childhood and adulthood, but Roy had fought him and fucked him and both times, the margin of authority between them had been alarmingly small.

And that one just finalized it. I simply love the way you twist things inside Roy’s head. He’s not suddenly in love or angsting his heart out, he’s just a realist who knows it’ll end badly.
The perfect story to read when I’m staying up too late and chain-smoking my lungs out.
