I have a request for all of you..

can anyone get me a super-large picture of the human transmutation circle (either version)? I know this will probably be difficult, but my friends and me have decided that we're going to make a transmutation circle out of one of the circles on campus one night, and see how many people get it the next day. and try to resist the urge to kneel, clap, and attempt activating it.

help? the symbols are pretty easy to make out, but there's text on it too and since we're doing this rather large (20' diameter) we do need to know what the text is rather than just scribbling.

The text in the very middle is still hard to make out, but it looks like it's just repeated over and over. Anyway.. this happened to be sitting on my harddrive. I think someone posted it here a fair while back, but I've got no idea who it was. (-:

*rubs hands together* oooh, time to find out which brand of sidewalk chalk is the best~

That was the one I made. XD;;

Randonmess: And I think you should totally try to activate it... just for fun. ^_^

but we won't have any materials in it so it won't work anyawy ;-; sadness!

I know once we have it drawn, Brian won't be able to resist attempting activation, so I'll leave that to him XD

The text on the array is actually from an old formula for the philosopher's stone- part of Ripley's Recapitulation of the Twelve Gates (Here) the excerpt used is:

The Peacock's feathers in gay colours, the rainbow which shall go over,
The spotted panther, the lion green, the Crows bill blue as lead.
These shall appear before you perfect white, and many more others.
And after the perfect white, grey, false citrine also

Oops, dropped a line there. The last line is "And after these, there shall appear the red body invariable"

Awesome! I think we might use a lot of different lines from it, and not the exact ones on the array, because repitition = boring. not that 75% of the people who see it will know what it is, and I doubt 99% of them will have any idea there were words on it, where the words come from, or what they are.. so eyah. This is going to be a FUN project! Thank you!

I was going to say that, but you beat me to it.

Those words are also, interestingly enough, in the letter that Ed gets from King Bradley giving him the title of Fullmetal.
Fancy that. ^^

This is the second fandom I've been in that features a quote from Sir George Ripley's work. ((FYI: in the Hellsing manga, there is a quote from him on Alucard's coffin))

...dude, that is such a cool idea. And there's a nice big circle in full view of one of the dining centers on campus here, too...

Too bad it just snowed, perhaps a future anime club project... >_>
katkkscatnip on February 20th, 2005 07:16 pm (UTC)
We know we'll at least get an article in the campus newspaper out of it XD because one of the people in anime club is a fullmetal fan, and isn't in the little group of us (who are, amusingly enough, drama club nerds and not anime club nerds) who'll be making the circle. it'll be interesting... XD

I'll let you know how the project goes! Take pictures and post it here, so everyone can see. Not sure how well the in-progress pictures will turn out, as we'll have to do it around 1am when we're all off of work and nobody is around to see us making the array.

Rar! I'm jealous!
All the anime fans at my school are creepy.
... but I'm sure that they'd know FMA. >__>
