Due Date Ch.1 EdWin The sun was shining brightly overhead without a cloud in sight, a usual summer day when living in Resembool. The autumn was cool, the winter was freezing, the spring was just right, and the summer was blazing. Though on this particular summer day, Winry was feeling hotter than usual.Due Date Ch.1 EdWin in General Fiction More Like This
She sat out on the porch of their house, fanning herself with her hand and smiling when the sun casted light off of her new ring. Yup, I’m married now! She thought this happily, while putting her hand out from under the shade of the porch and into the blinding sunlight, admiring it.
They had just gotten married a few months ago, six to be exact, and they were the best months of her life. Though, her husband did get on her nerves quite a lot, they were still the best months.
“Stop staring at that thing would you?”
Ah, there he was now, “Hmph, why should I? And don’t call it ‘that thing’!I like it, it’s pretty, and t
Due Date Ch.2 EdWin The night had passed without any more sleep for Winry, on the other hand, when she would look at Ed, he had his hand on his exposed stomach and was sleeping like a rock, snoring away. Well, at least one of us can sleep soundly, she thought with irritation. The possibility of her being pregnant was still wracking her brain; therefore, she had no sleep.Due Date Ch.2 EdWin in General Fiction More Like This
When Ed had finally gotten up, she feigned her unawareness, letting him get dressed and go to work as usual. Even though Ed didn’t have his alchemy anymore, his knowledge hadn’t disappeared. After he had gotten back from his trip to the west, the current Fuhrer of Amestris, Roy Mustang, had asked him to come back to the military and share what he had learned with the rest of the alchemists, as well as Alphonse. Reluctantly Ed had agreed, knowing that he would have to make a living somehow and he now boarded a train for Central four days out of the week.
So, she kept her eyes closed, hoping he wouldn’t not
Due Date Ch.4 EdWinEd had a face splitting smile on his face when going into work the next morning, earning shocked stares from almost everyone there. The usual face he had on was one of reluctance, and it was an honest expression, he’d much rather be surrounded by the hills of Resembool, than the tall buildings and ongoing traffic of Central. But today was different, he had just found out that he was soon going to be a father, and it felt like there was nothing that could get in the way of him right now. It was like his usual feeling, but much, much stronger.Due Date Ch.4 EdWin in General Fiction More Like This
He made his rounds throughout the building, taking about three hours out of his six hour day, until he finally made a stop at the Colonel bastard’s, now called Fuhrer bastard’s, office.
“Ah, Fullmetal.” Roy noted Ed’s presence as he walked in, “Do you have those reports I need?” he looked up from his paper work and saw a smug faced Ed standing in front of him. “Alright, what’s wi
Due Date Ch.3 EdWinDinner that night passed with difficulty on Winry’s part, though on the other hand, Mei and Alphonse had no problem keeping their promise of not saying anything, most likely in fear of Winry putting a little something extra in their serving of stew. As every moment passed, her anxiety grew. She felt like the longer waited, the harder it would be to say it.Due Date Ch.3 EdWin in General Fiction More Like This
Her hand migrated to her stomach as she stood in the kitchen waiting for the apple pie to be ready. How will he react? He thoughts were glum, she felt like a little sissy not being able to say something that should be so simple. I’m Winry Rockbell for Christ’s sake! Oh wait, that’s not right, she thumped her forehead, I’m Winry Elric! I should be able to say something as simple as this! With that thought, she crossed her arms stubbornly and made her decision.
Once the timer began ringing, she quickly took out the pie, and set it on the cooling rack, the smell was making h
Due Date Ch.8 EdWinHis heart was pounding what seemed like two-hundred beats per minutes, and he was sure that his entire face gad gone completely scarlet. He could feel the heat spreading from his face down into his toes. It was maddeningly uncomfortable, but he was doing it. Finally this words he had been carrying for two years were going to come out into the open. Though when he did speak them, they weren’t what he had planned at all.Due Date Ch.8 EdWin in General Fiction More Like This
With all of his might, he pointed his finger to her and yelled his words, “Equivalent Exchange!!! I’ll give half of my life to you, if you give me half of yours to me!!!!”
SHIIIIT!!! Why did equivalent exchange come up?! That was wrong!! I didn’t mean that part! Damn it, can I get a redo?! Shit, what is she going to say?! She always hates it when I bring up alchemy into affairs where they didn’t belong! Crap, crap, crap, she’s gonna hate me!

Due Date Ch.10 EdWinWinry frowned as she moved about the house, idly cleaning up rooms that didn’t need cleaning to begin with. It seemed that the snow would take much longer to clear up than she had originally thought, and in result that meant that the long awaited doctor’s appointment to determine the baby’s gender, was cancelled.Due Date Ch.10 EdWin in General Fiction More Like This
And that brings her back to the present, dusting the dust free shelves and cleaning her already shining with cleanliness tools. After a few minutes she puts everything away, and she decides that her workshop holds no further work for her, not that it did in the first place. So, she slips her wrench back onto her person and restlessly makes her way out of the basement.
Al and Mei had left the house in an attempt to reach the grocers, “attempting” because of the snow. They were hoping to get some food for tonight’s dinner, since Winry had practically scarfed down their entire pantry while she was alone the other night, so trying to pass
Due Date Ch.9 EdWinThe question had been on Winry’s mind for quite some time now, rolling and jumping around the inside of her head. It was a big question, one that would affect their lives considerably. Will the baby be a boy or a girl?Due Date Ch.9 EdWin in General Fiction More Like This
Again, she found herself thinking about this question and becoming overbearingly excited. She couldn’t wait to know the answer, and tomorrow morning she would finally know. Finally her fifth month had rolled around the corner.
With the sun almost completely set, she now sat on her comfy couch, curled up in a warm blanket and reading up on some new automail procedures. Autumn was almost over, and the days were growing colder and windier. It was a rare sight to see Winry without a jacket on, or a blanket wrapped around her.
Deciding sitting up was becoming too uncomfortable, she threw the pillows that were in her way on the floor, kept a few for herself, and moved her body to lay down on her back, her stomach being too big to lay on anymore.
Due Date Ch.14 EdWinA screech pierced his ears. Invading, filling his head and slowly making its way throughout his body, leaving a stinging pain in the tips of his toes, the tips of his fingers, and in his abdomen. It sent a message to his brain, telling him to run, to find his way back to the room he had only just left, and take away the pain that was causing that soul crushing scream.Due Date Ch.14 EdWin in General Fiction More Like This
Apparently, his legs had more sense than his brain because he’d already made it to the door when he was in the middle of his thought process. He flung it open without hesitation, the door emitting a loud creaking noise, and was met with the sight of Winry curled up into a circle, frantically clutching at her abdomen, trying, from what it looked like, to grab a hold of anything and squeeze the death out of it for a little bit of tension release. Her face was wrought with sheer horror, she knew exactly what was happening.
But to the terror of both her and Ed, it was still too early.

Looking for Ms.Riza was proving to be quite a challenge for Winry. She hadn't been inside Central Command for so long, and even back then surely she would get lost easily. As she was just about to give up hope and return to the automail wing, she rounded a corner and crashed into someone. Judging by how hard she ran in to him, she must have unconsciously increased her speed of walking in her haste to find Ms.Riza.
Rubbing her forehead, she began to look up, about to apologize, but that plan quickly dissipated when she saw his face.
"Ed?" she said, slightly breathless, a smile with a mix of joy and relief coming on her face," What are you doing back here? Did you finish what you had to do?" While talking, she was studying his face. Looking to see if what was bothering him earlier had gone away or if it had become a bigger problem. Somehow it was different. He had neither of those looks. He didn't have the look of someone who overcame their problem, or the look of someone who had a lot w
