AN: Hello! This is my first-ever fanfiction, so I hope it's OK... *ahem* anyways, this is going to be an FMA and Artemis Fowl crossover. It takes place a year after the FMA movie, FMA:CoS. Also, Ed's gonna be a kitty chimera, since I can hardly find any FMA fanfictions with Ed as a kitty chimera in there... I've seriously found, like, two |D So... yeah... enjoy! ^.^ (I know it's short... I'll try to make the next one longer...)
Note: I do NOT own FMA OR Artemis Fowl, including any of the characters in this story.
It all began when Alphonse brought the cat home.
"Alphonse, put it back." Edward said sternly as he noticed his younger (but not necessarily smaller) brother holding the small furry creature. The young blond boy did not have much of a liking for cats, but his brother seemed to love them. He would probably never understand why.
Al hugged the kitten closer. "But, Brother, I couldn't just leave it there… It looked so lonely and scared by itself! Can't we please keep this one?" The younger of the two Elrics looked at his brother, giving him his best puppy-dog look. It was easier to do now, since he wasn't a suit of armor anymore. Somehow, Alphonse and his brother had managed to come back into Amestris unscathed. The two weren't exactly sure how, but honestly did not care for once. They were just happy they had managed it at all.
Edward sighed. "I keep telling you, no! How many times must I tell you to get you to understand?" He was beginning to get irritated, Alphonse could tell. "If I let you keep this one, you'll still keep bringing more in! We can't and won't take care of any cats or any other kind of animals at the moment!"
The two brothers began arguing, and the argument became a fight and the fight soon began to involve alchemy, which of course would soon land them into trouble.
Suddenly Alphonse paused, mid-clap, and began to gaze around, confused. "Brother..?" He asked, and Ed looked up.
"What is it?" He asked his younger brother, still annoyed and in a fighting position.
"…where did the cat g-" Al cut himself off as he lifted his gaze to his brother, and his brown eyes widened.
Edward looked confused. "What's wrong, Al?" Ed asked, tilting his head to one side slightly. Oh, how clueless he seemed, standing there, looking like he did. It was almost cute.
Alphonse didn't know what to say. "Well… Er… maybe you should… go look in the mirror…" He said, not wanting to tell his brother himself. Edward gave Al a strange look; he had kind of a funny look on his face. It seemed like a mixture of confusion, horror, and… was that amusement?
"Um… OK…" He said, still looking confused as he turned and began walking to the bathroom, his brother not to far behind. When he looked in the mirror, what he saw stunned him. "Are those CAT EARS?" He cried, gold, and now slightly larger and more cat-like, eyes widening. He turned around to see he had a tail to match. "What the heck, Alphonse, what did you do?"
"I don't know!" Al squeaked, not sure it was even him who did it. "I'm sorry Brother! I-I wasn't trying to! Honest!" He took a step back as his brother gave him the death glare.
If looks could kill, I'd be long dead by now. And Brother probably would be, too. Alphonse thought with a small shudder as his brother continued to glare at him, dark gold tail lashing and equally golden ears folded back. Anyone could tell that this cat chimera was NOT happy. Suddenly, Ed spun around to gaze in the mirror once more, frowning at his reflection.
"It must've happened during one of our transmutations…" He said, mostly to himself as he gently rubbed his new-found cat ears with his hands. At least they weren't paws. "But how…? How would I not have… not have noticed? And I never would have thought either of us was skilled enough in bio-alchemy to accomplish anything close to this." He sighed to himself. "Well then, I guess I was wrong…" He spun around to face his brother. "Did you notice anything that seemed strange with the alchemy during the fight?"
Al shook his head. "No, Brother, I didn't…" He said, looking sadly at his feet. "I'm… I'm sorry…" His voice cracked slightly, and was surprised when his older brother just sighed and ran a hand through his hair.
"No, I'm sorry, Al. I shouldn't have yelled at you like that. I was just a little… freaked out." He smiled at Al. "Well, actually, I think most people would be." Alphonse laughed.
"Yeah, I'm sure they would." He laughed, and suddenly couldn't resist any longer. He reached up and began to rub Ed's new pair of ears. "Whoa, that's actually kind of coo-" He was cut off by a loud rumbling sound suddenly coming from Ed's chest, and took a step back. "Wait, are you… purring?"
The rumbling noise stopped, and Ed's face suddenly went red with embarrassment. "Y-yes, I guess I was…" He muttered, looking away with his ears back as his younger brother burst out laughing. "What? It's the stupid cat!" He snapped. "It's not like I was TRYING to purr!"
Alphonse smirked. "Uh-huh. Wait, weren't you supposed to meet Fuhrer Mustang today?" While the two brothers had been Germany, Roy had somehow managed to climb his way up to the rank of Fuhrer. Soon after they had returned, Edward had resumed his job as a State Alchemist, knowing that now, even if he still had to follow military orders, he and other Sate Alchemists would not be used as human weapons for war.
Edward nodded, his gazed automatically moving towards the clock in the hall way. "UGH! I'm gonna be late! Great, now I'll have to listen to him about that, along with the ranting about my height!" He tried to make a growling noise, but it came out as a hiss instead, which only made Alphonse laugh again.
"'Edward Elric: Cat of the Military'!" He said and burst out laughing again. "It's perfect!" Ed just rolled his eyes.
"Yeah, yeah, sure, real funny, Al!" He grumbled as he put on his signature red coat (the one his brother had an almost exact copy of that he wore. Copy-cat) and pulled the hood over his head to hide his ears, and made sure his tail was behind the jacket. Then he walked out of the house, brother following behind him. Halfway across the yard, he swore quietly to himself and stopped.
"What is it, brother?" Alphonse asked.
"Great, I just realized that that jerk Mustang now has yet ANOTHER thing to annoy me about constantly."
