    Super good, absolutely captures the paranoia and politics of life in a military dictatorship. For a series about throwing a coup, you don't see that much.

    Breda is criminally underused in most other fic. Here? I just want more of his POV, and his actions towards the Promised Day? Chefs kiss.

    Havoc is great. The Roy Mustang of this fic comes off like he is a guy who has actual skills and can make this happen.

    Summary

    [In rare moments of whimsy and indulgence—usually accompanied by cake—Azula would sometimes think of herself as one part of a triangle. Half of a paired dao. The northern point of a compass, even, always guiding straight and true.

    But she thinks, as she contemplates the single cowering candleflame and the stifling darkness, that perhaps she’s been a lone flame all along.

    No matter, though. Zuzu claims to have changed. Maybe Azula will change, too. Maybe she will forge herself into a spear, instead, striking straight and true. Or an arrow in the night. A knife in the dark.

    Her eyes flick up to where Zuko just disappeared from her sight, and she snaps, sharp, precise, and feels lightning-tinged fire arc off her fingertips.

    Or in the back.]

    Or,

    Six years after the war, Azula has finally reached her age of majority and is about to be crowned Zuko’s heir. If only Sokka could shake the feeling that she’s plotting something…

    If only Azula could keep Water Tribe from bumbling into her plots.

    Summary

    It couldn't be. Yet when the stranger opened his round, golden eyes, Ed knew it was Alphonse. Of course, that made no sense since his brother was already right beside him in a suit of armor, but even he couldn't deny the facts.

    First one is probably one of the best FMA: B fics ever written.
