Author's Note: For the 2010-2011 fmabigbang . After the meeting with May and Lan Fan at Knox's place in the manga and Broterhood anime, my headcanon says they had met before, so yeah my take on how they met. Oh, and I made a timeline for myself over when I think certain events happened before and during FMA, so you'll see the dates in Fu's journal entries.

Author's Note: For the 2010-2011 fmabigbang . Second time doing Madam Shan here. First time doing her is from my springkink fic Like a Radio Drama, and that didn’t go so well, LOL. I hoped I did her okay this time. And why no, chapter title not stolen from All Quiet on the Western Front. *whistles*

Author's Note: For the 2010-2011 fmabigbang . There's been a debate whether Aerugo is based around Italy, France, Spain, etc. I decided to go for the France/Spain route. I want to thank my friend psychmoonshadow for helping me out with a few French phrases here (which are below here before the cut). If the phrases are wrong though, let me know! Oh, and a lot of inspiration for Ada's water alchemy is all thanks to Issac the Freezing Alchemist from the Brotherhood anime, yay.

Edit: I want to thank yhlee for informing me on a couple mistakes she thinks I did. The first two I'll need to double check with a native French speaker while the third one I had one of the accents wrong. Anyone else that knows French well please let me know!

*"Dory, arrête s'il-vous plait!" (Dory, please stop!)
*“Êtes-vous d'accord?” (Are you all fine?)
*""Ada, vous êtes très tôt." (Ada, you’re very early)

Author's Note: For the 2010-2011 fmabigbang . This particular chapter has some references to the FMA Wii Games Price of the Dawn and Daughter of the Dusk, but you guys don’t need to play or know a whole lot about the game to get an idea of what’s happening in this chapter. In my headcanon though, the events from the games happened not long after May and Lan Fan left Knox’s place and before Ed and Al went to Briggs.

Author's Note: For the 2010-2011 fmabigbang . I actually went and did a quick research on fog, so Ada can be able to transmute water from the moisture there, or that’s what I like to think. Chemistry isn’t my strongest point. ^^; *reminds of another blunder I did in Like a Radio Drama with Roy’s alchemy*

Author's Note: For the 2010-2011 fmabigbang . haganeneko actually gave me a great idea over how to keep Fu’s body preserved while the gang is in the ship and also when everyone makes it to Xing. In the ship, he’ll be in a refrigerated room of sorts while in Xing his body will be preserved in salt (that’ll be revealed in next chapter).

Author's Note: For the 2010-2011 fmabigbang . Again, thanks to haganeneko for giving me ideas over how to preserve Fu’s body while the gang is traveling to Xing. Also, Fu’s journal entry in this chapter is a reference to my fic Trapped, which is my take over what happened while Maria was away at Xing. You don’t have to read it to get what’s going on in the entry although reviews for Trapped would be loved, haha!

Okay, this chapter I keep banging my head over because I would always have an idea how I’ll go though by it, only to then not able to write the scene out for some reason. I then thought of another way to get through this chapter, same thing. x_x I then decided to write the last chapter first and then go back to this chapter and this is the result. We’re getting close to the end!
