Wrote this fic for yuuki! It's centered during her fic, He Who Searches For Himself

Title: A Moment Between Them (2 of 3)
Fandom: FMA

Word Count: 1,113
Rating: PG-13
Continuation: of UnBirthday Party
Beta: whimsy_chan (who helped me write the beginning)
Written for: yuuki (hope I didn't butcher your characters too much)
Notes: I'm a lousy writer, so sorry if the characters seem a little OOC. Oh, and Yuuki. Since I wrote this for you, Whimsy and I want a prequel! ~.^

Hohenheim looked up from his paperwork when a light knock came from the front door. Grabbing his watch from his vest pocket, he checked the time. 1:30 a.m. it read. The knock came again, a little louder than before, and Hohenheim rose from his desk to answer it. Upon opening the front door, he was greeted by the slightly harried expression of Hermann Oberth followed closely by his wife Tilly.

"Ah, good evening, Professor! We've come to deliver these back to you." He gestured to the slouched figure he was currently carrying over his shoulder. Hohenheim glanced at his completely inebriated son and held out his arms. "Okay, hand him here."

Hermann dropped Edward into his father's waiting arms while Tilly propped Winry up against the wall in the entryway. Hermann started backing away slowly and Tilly followed suit. "Well, it's pretty late and I have an early class tomorrow, so good night Professor!"

"Oh... well... good night then, you two. Thanks for bring them home." The two waved back at Hohenheim and were gone in a flash. Hohenheim stared after them in bemusement. 'I guess these two were more of a handful then I thought they'd be,' he thought to himself.

"Sorry about this. I didn't expect Ed and I to drink this much." Winry piped in, as she clung to the doorframe. Hohenheim frowned. "Well, I hope you know now not to get this drunk again. It's a good thing Hermann and Tilly were with you. With Edward passed out, who knows what would have happened to the two of you? Stay there."

He carried Ed into the living room and dropped him on the couch. "Can you walk on your own?" He asked Winry as he returned to the entryway. "I think so." She let go of the doorframe and stood there wobbling for a moment. She took a step forward and immediately lost her footing, but Hohenheim was quick to catch her. "No, that won't do. I'll have to help you up the stairs and into bed."

Winry nodded as he led her to the foot of the stairs. She started climbing up the stairs, one step at a time, Hohenheim bracing her from behind so she wouldn't tumble back down them. Once at the top, he led her down the hallway and into her bedroom. Hohenheim sat Winry down on the bed and she promptly fell over onto her side as soon as he let go of her. He came around to the other side of the bed and lit the candle that was sitting on her night table. Crossing the room, he grabbed her cotton nightdress that was draped across the chair in the corner, then made his way back over to her.

"I'm going to help you get undressed and into bed. The best thing for you right now is to sleep it off. You should feel better in the morning." Winry nodded.

He lifted her back up into a sitting position and helped her stand beside the bed. Once standing, he started untying the sash at her waist. Winry blushed, her cheeks getting even more hot and flushed than what the alcohol had already done to her. Once the sash was removed, Hohenheim knelt down and gathered the hem of her dress. He began lifting it up.

"Lift up your arms."

She obeyed and he continued to lift the dress up over her head. Winry was now standing before Hohenheim in nothing but her bloomers and stockings. She blushed a brighter red and asked, "Don't you feel embarrassed doing this?"

He looked her in her eyes and answered, "Remember Winry, I've been married and I have kids. The female body is nothing new to me."

"But, I'm seventeen!"

"Trisha was seventeen when I met her. You have nothing that she didn't have. Besides, I couldn't rely on Edward to help you. With him as drunk as he is, the two of you would have never made it up the stairs."

Hohenheim smiled his normal cheeky smile at her, but something about it struck Winry as off. It seemed more sad than happy. She looked into his eyes and it told her everything. "You miss her, don't you?"

His smile fell. He looked away from her as if he had remembered something painful. He stayed quiet for a few moments before answering her. "Yes, I miss her terribly."

Winry reached out and touched the few strands of his hair that had fallen around his face. It felt just like Ed and Al's hair, as fine as silk. "I miss my parents, especially my father. It was hard growing up without him. Granny did a fine job raising me, but it just isn't the same." She let go of his hair and touched his cheek. He leaned into her hand as she started caressing it. He needed this comfort. He needed it badly, but now wasn't the right time. It also didn't help that she was still drunk and half naked.

Hohenheim took her hand from his cheek and held it in his. "While you are here, I will do everything I can to be a father to you," he said gently as he rubbed her hand. She smiled at his words, letting what he had just said sink in.

Releasing her hand, he lifted her arms up and slipped the nightdress over her head. "And hopefully someday you will actually be my daughter."

As soon as her head passed through the top of the nightdress Winry yelped, "WHAT?" Hohenheim started laughing. The expression on her face was priceless and she turned an even brighter red.

"Nevermind. Okay, into bed you go." She climbed into bed and laid back as he pulled the covers up to her chin. She motioned for him to come closer and he leaned in. Winry gave him a gentle kiss on the cheek. "I want to thank you for all that you've done for me so far. I know you weren't expecting another freeloader to come along. I really appreciate what you and Ed are doing for me while I'm here." He smiled gently at her.

"I don't want you to think about it or worry. Neither Edward nor I will let anything happen to you while you are here. Now get some sleep."

She sank down and smiled weakly up at him as sleep had already started to take hold of her. Hohenheim got up and walked to the door. He paused when he heard her call out to him one last time. "Gute Nacht, Hohenheim."

"Gute Nacht, Winry. Schlaf gut."

He closed her door and went back down the stairs.

Ack, that was terrible! Oh, and I hope I didn't butcher the German either! XD;

I warn you, you made me squeally at 1:30am XD;;
*bounces* YAYAY! *reads* ....

*SQUEALY!* ZOMG... I love you, I so have to write the prequil.... like.. right now! Alcohol makes so such fun stories.

Poor Winry XD Hohenheim's like "I'll help you change"
Win: "OKAY :D *moments later* WAIT o_O I'm in my undies infront of an old man!"
Hoho: "... o_O I've seen Trisha naked, you're no different"
Win: "OKAY :D"
The look on Ed's face at that mental image... glad he's not there X3

But that's sad ;_; poor Winry lamenting over her parents, poor Hohenheim missing Trisha... in a bizarre way, they each have a little of what the other is missing. Sad...

You threw in foreshaddowing of EdWin XD Hoho likes the idea of EdWin... *prods the bunny carefully* >_>

Back to my happiness! T_T You channeled my brain so well <3<3, you found the little story I've had since day one about Ed, Win and the Oberths going out drinking for some bizarre reason XDDD and Ed & Winry become aquainted with one too many bottles.

... LOL and my challenge is EdWin rated R... yikes XD might not be quite R but... AH! *runs away*

YAY!! I have an excuse to write my party story T_T <3 luf
Yuuki Hikariyuukihikari on May 25th, 2005 07:33 am (UTC)
I thought it was great btw >_> incase you didn't catch that. Write more *throws gold coins*.
Sarah: hug?gundamnook on May 25th, 2005 07:44 am (UTC)
Eeeee... I'm glad I could make you squee this late at night!! That means my job is done!! *nods head*

Yay, I get a prequel out of this!!! WOOT!!! *is happy* If you want to post this in your fic journal for your followers to read, I'm all for it!!

Ick, you want me to write again. >.< Maybe I will. I don't know yet. I had a hard enough time writing this one. Let me get better first (is still sick).

I'm really glad you like it! And I'm glad it fit well with your setting! ^.^
Sarah: smug (turnthatshitup)gundamnook on May 25th, 2005 07:47 am (UTC)
The look on Ed's face at that mental image... glad he's not there X3

Bwahahahaha.... I could just see the expression on Ed's face if he ever figured out that his father saw Winry half naked!!! XDDDDD

Poor Edward!!! X3

I thought of a way to avoid graphic R-ness. When it gets to 'the deed' you can do a 'fade to black' type deal and come back after they're coming back to their senses. Be it groggy after the moment stuff, or next morning with an OMGWTF-DIDWEJUSTDO??? shock scene. Or something. XP

Random reader: Hey! Where's the actual smut??
Devious Author: *points to line of '---' between paragraphs*
Reader: That's just 3 dashes!
DA: But they're EFFECTIVE dashes!

*inserts another 'or something' to all that*

And they should get drunk because Winry wanted to celebrate her 17th birthday, belated or not!

ANd to Nook:
<3 So cute and sweet and sentimental and funny all at the same time. XD
Yuuki Hikariyuukihikari on May 26th, 2005 08:48 am (UTC)
Zrana XD our brain channeling skills are frightening, I did NOT know that you'd made this comment until JUST NOW

"And they should get drunk because Winry wanted to celebrate her 17th birthday, belated or not!"

.......... o.o;;;;;;
moinkys on May 26th, 2005 04:18 pm (UTC)
Awe, I really like this. I know this is horrible to say, but Hohenheim reminds me of my brother so much of the very first time I got TOTALLY plastard. It was one of the only times my brother was truely nice to me and ended up having to get me into my night ware. You gotta love the sweet men in this world that are nice to you when your drunk! Good job!!! I didn't think it was too OOC at all.
Sarah: alphonse flowers (linoleum_icons)gundamnook on May 26th, 2005 05:50 pm (UTC)
Thank you for the comment. I really appreciate it. After Yuuki wrote the prequel, I feel like my fic doesn't flow with hers. I'm half tempted to rewrite it. ^^;
Yuuki Hikari: Spazyuukihikari on May 29th, 2005 06:42 am (UTC)
I feel like my fic doesn't flow with hers.




*turns the japanese off*

My Japanese probably sucked too >_>;. Anyways. Yuuki still loves you for the fic ;_; I get great squeals reading it again because your version was written with the complete ignorance of what had happened (since you didn't know it had happened XD; neither did I for that matter) and I can feel the honest oblivious feeling when Hohenheim talks to Winry.

Beyond that, it's the funnest thing reading my crazy setting written out by someone else. It's exciting to see what someone else might dream up and even if it was just this little ficlet, some event actually happened in Germany that I didn't have pre-scripted into my head.

... and now you have me utterly curious for what you'd do in a re-write... *lecherous grin*

I need an ubber happy/spazzy FMA icon... *goes off to find*
Sarah: toungegundamnook on May 29th, 2005 07:49 am (UTC)
I might just amuse you and me and rewrite the thing just for our own enjoyment!! XDDDD

And are you writing the morning after, or is Zrana?
Yuuki Hikari: Edwardyuuki on May 29th, 2005 07:12 pm (UTC)
WHEE XD writing for our own enjoyment is fun (look at the chit is spawns o_O;;;)

and I got the morning after covered... guess what I'm doing right now? It's gonna be a little sad ;_;
Sarah: whinesgundamnook on May 30th, 2005 01:08 am (UTC)
It's gonna be a little sad ;_;

Sad? Why is it sad? It's not suppose to be sad. It's suppose to be happy!!! They finally did it!

Grrr... now you are making me nervous. *wants to read NOW*
Ooooh a sparklie!urbanfaerie on June 10th, 2005 08:11 am (UTC)
Awww, KNOWS all too well being put to bed by a non-nasty male who protects your honor. I wish it wasn't so, but bless them.

THIS was the cutest fic ever.

I came here from ff.net YAY for pimping links. :)
Sarah: ed/win (_____daytripper)gundamnook on June 10th, 2005 05:55 pm (UTC)
Thank you very much!! I'm really glad you thought my drabble was cute!! X3

best thing for you right now is to sleep it off. You should feel better in the morning."

or not.....^_^;;;

She looked into his eyes and it told her everything. "You miss her, don't you?"

Yes, yes, even drunk people have their moments... ^_^

As soon as her head passed through the top of the nightdress Winry yelped, "WHAT?" Hohenheim started laughing.


"Gute Nacht, Winry. Schlafen gut."

*cough* It's "Schlaf gut." ^^;

*snuggles* This is such a sweet ficlet. <3 Makes me feel all mushy...*loves*

Sarah: wuv you (nalavashi)gundamnook on May 27th, 2005 04:51 pm (UTC)
Thank you!! *snuggles* I'm glad you like it!!

*cough* It's "Schlaf gut." ^^;

Ack, I knew I'd get the German wrong. ^^; *runs to fix*

So, did you read mine first or Yuuki's? And I'm kinda sad. Only one of her followers responded to my fic. I think this one wasn't to their liking. But I'm glad you, Yuuki, Zra, & Whimsy liked it!! ^_____^

Squee, I say. Squee.
I have read both of Yuuki's pieces relating to this story, and I thought the continuity was wonderful.

Don't worry about the German. I used to know how to say, "I am a donut," via JFK, but it has long since been pushed out of my head by far more important things.

Very sweet fiction. At first, I was a little skeptical of Papa Hoho undressing Winry, but I think you did it very well. Of course he would be paternal; this is Papa Hoho we're talking about. And he was in character about it, too. This fiction was a very good lead in; it set up the story, introduced the characters, the situation, the conflict, and left me TERRIBLY curious about what happened to get them there and what would happen later. I think you and Yuuki make a wonderful team, and that is not to diminish you independently, either.

By the way, I think your icon of Ed and Den rolling in the grass is the funniest freakin' thing I've seen in a while.
The Glass Swordsannask on June 13th, 2005 06:39 pm (UTC)
I found this through Yuuki's / daidoujisan's FF.net story.... this is very very cute ^___^
Kaijuupeach_jello on July 28th, 2005 12:53 pm (UTC)
<33 Found this through Yuuki's fanfiction.net story -- great job. I was happy to see interaction between Winry and Hohenheim, because really? I think that SOMEONE needs to like the poor man, when it seems Edward has no intention of doing so. (this is why movie happenings kill me into extreme death x__x) ...So yes. Seven stars of five, and that's 'cause you're awesome. :D
Barking at the windevil_little_dog on April 15th, 2006 02:46 am (UTC)
Because I'm still slowly reading Yuuki's story...

...I just found this. And love it. And am sticking it in my memories because it's just sooo darn cute.
