This fic is set in the original FMA anime verse, after the TV series but before the movie. If you're only familiar with the manga or the newer anime, it might not make much sense.
Roy is in command of troops stationed on the Drachman border. It's been years since Ed disappeared. In the meantime Roy's had the new, very blond, Lust as his constant companion.
This is one of those rare fics that has twists and turns that you never quite see coming but really do make sense after the fact. It's also told in a fantastically spare style. The author lets the character and their actions speak for themselves and the readers can draw their own conclusions about what was right or wrong and what really makes a person a person. There are very few fics I've given much thought to after I've finished them, this is one of the few. Völuspá
