Summary: Young Roy Mustang travels to the city of Bolton, where a Gen. Raven governs over the citizens. In exchange for saving his life with a kind of magic that can only be taught by skilled sorcerers, Gen. Raven promises to do what he can to get Roy apprenticed to his personal magician, Berthold Hawkeye. While at first, it appears that Master Hawkeye doesn't care much for Roy, that all changes once he proves his intentions by dedicating himself to his studies and mastering the art of sorcery. When Master Kimblee, the King's personal magician and overseer of the Journeyman level sorcerers, comes to collect any philosopher's stones Master Hawkeye may have, Roy is insulted by his behavior and casts a spell on him. Things go quickly downhill for the entire household after that. What happens afterward will chill your blood and break your heart. Find out what happens when magic is used for both good and evil, and why you should always leave the dead in their graves.

Author's Notes: Inspired by a song of the same name by the band called W.A.S.P. If you like 80's hair bands, it's worth a listen.
