In Your Head

Another head hangs lowly,
Child is slowly taken.
And the violence caused such silence,
Who are we mistaken?

But you see, it's not me, it's not my family.
In your head, in your head they are fighting,
With their tanks and their bombs,
And their bombs and their guns.
In your head, in your head, they are crying...

-- "Zombie" by The Cranberries


Roy Mustang again, a la FMA. He has flashbacks to the Ishbalan wars where he was personally responsible for genocide... Poor guy.

I have to say that, even if Ed is my favorite, THIS is the Roy I've come to like and sympathize with most. The one that feels so much guilt and shame for what he's done, to the point where it almost kills him on the inside, and almost makes him commit suicide.

Those lyrics immediately came to my mind. I have always thought this song would be perfect for this series. Another song I thought would be good would be Sound the Bugle by Bryan Adams.

Am I the only one who laughs every time I see the lady in the back looking like she's about to fly off her balcony?

Great picture, btw. the angst and emotion is endless. :)

This picture is one i could look at forever, but I feel the need to point this out - this picture was on your profile as a fanart for your fic "Forgiveness," but shouldn't the picture then link to the fic itself?
ChildOfPuck's avatar
Not necessarily...? I think that would be my call, wouldn't it?

Well yes... but I fell in love with this picture long before I read "Forgiveness" and went through all the art you have linked on your profile, so it just confused me.
