Title: Country Matters
Fandom: FMA (mangaverse)
Character(s): Pinako, Hohenheim
Pairing: Hohenheim/Trisha (offstage)
Rating: PG (for mild language and the situation under discussion)
Warnings: Spoilers for two tidbits of information, one in chapter 40, the other in chapter 54.
A/N: Part of my LJ-to-Dreamwidth fanfiction port; this short story was written in 2006 (before we knew anything about Hohenheim's backstory at all, really -- and before I'd learned to write shorter paragraphs for online viewing) and was my first substantial creative contribution to the FMA fandom. It's set before the beginning of the manga and I'd like to think that it still works, despite all the revelations since then. (I had much more Machiavellian suspicions about Hohenheim's marriage to Trisha in those days.) Opinions welcomed.

Dedication: For Katie S.



She glared at the door again and hoped he felt her gaze boring into his back. What are you doing, Hohenheim? And why the hell did you come here to do it?
