Both boys stared at the objects they were each holding in their hands; one, a photo of a blonde-girl with blue eyes, holding a wrench and grinning. The other was a quickly drawn scribble, but it was easy to see the girl's strong smile on her face.
"So you say that she has blonde hair and blue eyes too?" The alchemist asked the brown-haired teenager next to him, who nodded.
"Yeah..." The Viking paused to look up at the blonde, who had gone back to looking thoughtfully at the picture he was holding in metal hand.
"She has a short temper too. Tends to hit people." Hiccup added, a hint of a smile on his face. To his surprise, the other laughed too.
"They can be hard to love, can't they?" Ed grinned, passing him the drawing. The photo switched placed with it, and both were placed into pockets, safe.
"But they're worth it." The Viking smiled knowingly, and the alchemist nodded, before sticking his hand out.
"Hiccup... Right?" He frowned at such an un-Amestris type name, but yet again, he didn't look Amestris-like at all, clad in furry vest and thick boots.
Hiccup nodded, shaking the other's hand. "Ed... I think?" The Viking smiled to himself as he thought how such a name would never be enough to scare away trolls. Ed nodded.
"Well, maybe I'll see you around. Hope you find her soon!" Ed set off in the other direction, giving Hiccup a careless but friendly wave behind him.
Hiccup stared in wonder before calling after him; "Uh yeah, you too!"
And then he turned around, starting to walk.
They never saw each other again; but they were both united by a quest for love, that never stopped until they had their blonde, blue-eyed girl both tightly in their embrace.
EdWin and HiccupxAstrid (HicRid? Astcup?!) are my OTP's. ~ And they're really similar too; I mean, Astrid is totally like Winry, with her blonde hair (even the style!) and blue eyes, and the fact that they both beat their boyfriends up when they're mad. But they also both have soft, gentle sides.
Ed is also a lot like Hiccup as well; they're both pretty short, and intelligent, and funny.
So, I decided to write the one-shot above; it came to be when I couldn't sleep.
I'm also writing a similar one soon, it'll be the next chapter of this.
