About *Brain go splat*

Previous Entry *Brain go splat* Mar. 27th, 2005 @ 02:03 am Next Entry
Title: Gethsemane
Fandom: Fullmetal Alchemist
Pairing: Envy/Ed
Theme: 85. God without God
Rating: PG
Spoilers: Yeppers. All over the fruckin' place, and breeding like bunnies.
Notes: Look, I drabble! My seminary education is showing. Blatant religious symbolism, taken extremely out of context. Brought about because of William Blake's poem "The Tyger" and how much I felt it applied to Envy.
Warnings: violence



"Once, a very long time ago, God created the world and angels, and life was perfect.

"But God's favorite, God's most beloved, fell from grace, and God turned His face away from the angel, forsaking him. God decided that he had done something terribly wrong in making the angels, and so He started over and created man.

"But the spurned angel, angry at God's rejection, hated mankind, and swore that he would be the eternal enemy of humanity-- and he who was once beautiful and adored became as a hungry lion stalking the earth and looking to devour everything."

Envy paused, narrowing his amethyst eyes as he looked past his captive into his own past.

"That angel hated God's second born. He was jealous. Why was he so easy to cast aside and walk away from? How could those callow, imperfect humans replace the angel in God's heart?"

The Sin bared his teeth, trembling with barely constrained rage. He took a deep breath and composed himself, then continued.

"God elected a man to be His Son, and so that man became both God and man incarnated in one flesh. The angel knew that this man was God's specially chosen, and it came to be that the angel had the God-man tortured and sacrificed."

Envy crouched down, tracing a finger along Ed's jaw, and the blond alchemist cracked open his swollen eyes. He had taken quite a beating, but finally he lay still, slumped against the wall in a pool of his own blood, his breathing labored as he struggled to inhale with broken ribs.

The homunculus was unscathed, due to his inhuman body's natural regeneration. His fingertips drifted along his half-brother's bloody split lips then touched them to his own, tasting the metallic salt of their shared blood. His tongue flicked sensuously along the long, slender digits.

The human boy gasped, his mouth working as he tried to say something. Envy leaned in closer, licking the sweat and blood painting his face before tilting his head against Ed's shoulder, wanting to hear what he had to say.

"What?" he murmured softly, the word a bare puff of air against his heated skin. "What are your last words, Ed?"

"F- Father... Why have you forsaken me?"

This is really well written.

You totally win again.
I love you.

Ah, thankies! I will be writing more sooner or later.
And I have a theme to suggest: the grace of self-doubt.
(I found this written in one of my theology notebooks and I have no idea what it pertains to, but it sounds interesting.)

I can't wait 'til you do more. <3

We're not sure about the theme, because, honestly, Kas and I don't really know if we can WRITE anything for it. We like it, but, we lose. XD
If you have something you think YOU can do for it, let me know and I'll add it anyway. XD

Aww, look. Someone else got ahold of the bible-laudanum crack. XD
I really like this. It makes me go "ouch" and cringe, but it's well done.
I love your pacing and writing style.

Forgive my ignorance, but what does the title mean?

Gethsemane was the garden where Jesus was praying before Judas kissed him and turned him over to the Romans. There he knelt and prayed, "God, please take this cup from my lips; but your will be done, not mine own."

*purrs* Thankie kindly!

Ah. Okay. That makes sense. I don't have a good memory for names of things at all, so I'll probably forget that in a couple days. *laughs*

And you're welcome.

Oh, no. That's just.... *deeeep breath*

Ed! ;_;

That said, the Envy-drawn-comparisons are fantastic, and everything is just so -dark-. The last few lines just sort of club you over the head with something painful. But in a good way.
