I'll never touch another fanfic with Heiderich mentioned as one of the characters because some authors are complete assholes.

Which is a shame because I don't mind Al x Ed x Heiderich as long as it's done well, but I recently stumbled upon a nasty surprise when reading one of these so called "threesome" fics. It wasn't a threesome fic. It was a "Oh look a convenient substitute for my brother and Al is forced to watch everything through Heiderich's eyes" fic.

Even though I don't like infidelity fiction, I can usually tolerate it. But Heiderich being used as a replacement for Al makes my blood boil (I mentioned this before in another post). I like to call people who write these kinds of fics Elricest traitors.

And it really, really makes me hate the Ed in those stories for being so fucking insensitive and selfish. Even though I honestly don't believe it's in Ed's character to do something like that; lonely or not, regardless of being stuck in a foreign world, Ed wouldn't do something that he thought could hurt his brother just because Al's not there.

It's even more rage inducing when Ed and Al are reunited and Ed's still got his head stuck up Heiderich's ass. "Hey Al, cut your hair and wear these clothes so you'll remind me of my dead boyfriend." Ed wouldn't use his little brother as a doll, for fuck's sake. And he'd never completely disregard Al's existence to the point of using him as a substitute Heiderich. Um, hello? Ed only shoved it down everyone's throats that his little brother was human despite being an empty suit of armor.

I know I'm being completely unfair here, and that even though I see it as being OOC for Ed to do such a thing, there exists the concept of artistic license. Usually I would just skip these kinds of stories-- I guess I'm just mad that I got tricked into reading one.

TL;DR TAG YOUR MOTHERFUCKING FANFIC PAIRINGS APPROPRIATELY BECAUSE HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE IS BAD FOR MY HEALTH.
