Title: Ivory Gate
Fandom: FMA (anime v. 1.0)
Character(s): Ed, Noa (Alfons Heiderich in flashback)
Pairing(s): None
Rating: PG (for mild language)
Warnings: Spoilers for the FMA movie.
A/N: Part of my LJ-to-Dreamwidth fanfiction port; first written in 2006. This constitutes a pair of deleted scenes from the movie, fleshing out some character and plot points that interested me. Translation and cultural notes can be found at the end. Crossposted from [personal profile] nebroadwe to [community profile] fm_alchemist and [community profile] hagaren.
Dedication: For the good folk of rec.arts.anime.misc, especially Laurie and Dave, in gratitude for many engrossing hours of discussion (not to mention the advice that allowed me to purchase and watch a R2 copy of Fullmetal Alchemist: Conqueror of Shamballa six months before the R1 version was released).

Trust no one; betrayal is certain.
