If crossovers are allowed: Edward Elric/Anakin Skywalker, loss/sacrifice.

If not: Anakin/Obi-Wan, choices vs. inevitability

Hm.. okay, this wasn't quite what I'd planned on answering yours with. In fact, I wasn't sure WHAT I wanted to answer yours with until I was sitting in class today and.. BAM plotbunny. It was weeeeeeeeeird. It got a weird spin, but I hope it fulfills what you wanted anyway. Enjoy. :D

~~

Once upon a time, once upon two times actually, two very separate times in very separate parts of the universe, two very different young men dealt with a very similar problem. They had very little in common otherwise - both were prodigies in their own forms of magic, both had been given the choice between a terrible good and a horrendous evil. It was this choice, actually, that had spawned their problem-

How does one absolve one's self from a guilt one is never sure will be paid off?

You see, the choice was this: to sacrifice many for the life of a single loved one. Not an easy choice for anyone, but especially not for the two young men, little more than boys really, who were forced to make it.

One accepted the offer which led him down a dark road to complete ruin. The other... didn't.

Neither was able to help their loved ones, but at least the one who chose evil tried. That was the catch, wasn't it? One knew he had tried but had the blood of a million innocents on his hands. The other... didn't.

Hadn't.

Neither was happy. Neither had gotten what they wanted. Both were guilty.

So, you see, these two boys really weren't that similar at all.
