Prompt#359 :: Open :: The Next Step

Title: The Next Step
Series: Brotherhood
Word Count: 2,007
Rating: G
Characters: Edward Elric/Winry Rockwell, Pinako RockBell, Alphonse Elric (implied)
Summary: Edward rushes to Resembool to work on fixing his proposal to Winry.
Warnings: Edward-level swearing. No beta.
A/N: I started working on this story for the May 2016 Prompt: “With this ring…”, a prompt that was pulled out because of the community closing its doors for good. *sniff*

Anyway, the story is not brand new. The Next Step was the second story I ever wrote. It needed a reboot because my prose was poor at the time it was written. Right now only the idea was kept form the original.

It’s bittersweet posting like this especially since I became rather fond of this community. I will miss all this… Thank you mods for your hardwork (and for all those lovely banners). Thank you fellow writers for the gift of your imagination, your stories will live on. Here’s another one for posterity!
