HagaRen-Plothole?  

At the end of ep.51, we learn that Ed is now in 1921 Munich, Germany, and on his way to Transsylvania to meet Hermann Julius Oberth, who was to become a famous rocket scientist later on.
I thought that issue was interesting and started to do some research, only to learn that while Oberth had indeed been born in Hermannstadt, Transsylvania, he had been residing in Germany since 1912 - well before Ed ever arrived here or thought about going to meet him...

Plotters didn't do their homework, and I am trying to find ways to work around it - after all, fanfiction that's mostly historically correct would be great... Thoughts, anyone?

Haha I was just about to say... the plotholes in FMA are so many and so big that you could fit a small city in them.

Ed isn't going to find Oberth in Hermannstadt anyways because when Oberth was two he moved to Schaessburg. He lived there until he went to Munich to study medicine... after WWI he went back to Schaessburg (1918) to marry his "childhood sweetheart" X3. When he re-enrolled in Physics at the Munich university he recieved a ton of criticizm over his theories and returned to Schaessburg to be with his family and do doctorial work (because he had his doctor's degree already) while he finished his thesis (which was eventually rejected in 1922).

Internet is my source X3;. I actually did a lot of research on the man when I started writing my fanfic. I came to that same conclusion when I started writing the fic that "wait o_O; he's supposed to be in Munich, not Transylvania. And if he's in Munich I'm -certain- Ed would know about it." I found minor bits of conflicting information on several English sites (mainly in regards to his wife and little details surrounding his life) o_x; so I switched to searching thru German sites which were more consistant with their information and more helpful =3

Ummm X3 I'd give away more than that, except then all the secrets behind my fanfic-in-progress would be exposed! >_> le gasp
