8D [Shameless plug]

I have come back out of the lurking stage once more to give you all something fun!

^_^ This would be a just starting up FMA RPG.
Perhaps even the first one out there? o_o Though I'm not sure about that.

But it is run by me and the lovely selphish, fairypark, and refracting.

So feel free to head on over and check out the rules and join! We'd love to have you!

Disapearing is easy; it's just giving up.

First, an icon offering...

[1] Share. 
[2] Comment, don't ask. 8D 
[3] Credit "selphish" or "konayuki" in keywords. If you don't know how to do this, then don't take my fshing icons! 8D

I finally got some screencaps of episodes six and seven, so after my last final on Thursday, I'll go on an icon binge. *has been meaning to make some Christmas-y FMA icons*

Secondly, a question...
Does anyone know if Hughes actually IS an alchemist? If he is, is he a National Alchemist? Until I get my Christmas money (I'm a poor, starving college student), I'm stuck with ToriyamaWorld scanlations. *is dying to get her grubby paws on the later tanks*

Thirdly, a request...
If anyone knows of any images that would make good icons, or have any ideas for lyrics that would look good on FMA icons, let me know! Figuring out what to put on these babies is the hardest part.

greetings and speculations

Hey, all, first post, pleased to be here, all that jazz. I imagine we can take it as read that I love this show with a deathless passion.

About just who's an alchemist among the Boys in Blue...

Myself, I have been assuming that only Roy is an alchemist. Certainly none of the others are introduced with the kind of "call sign" that Roy and Ed have. My thought was that becoming a State/National Alchemist drafts a person into the military as a sort of auxilliary, thus the constant comments about them being "dogs of the military". Roy, by this reasoning, takes advantage of this fact and works for promotion to Colonel in addition to his status as Alchemist, making Hawkeye and Havoc his military staff. Neither they, nor Hughs, who looks to be in Intelligence to me, give any indication of alchemical ability, Hawkeye, for example, defaulting to her gun when that train-jacker attacks Roy.

It's the "call sign" that especially inclines me this way, since all those we know are Alchemists are known in that particular way.

As to why Ed, now inducted to the military, does not wear the uniform... well, it's Ed.

By the way, do people hereabouts prefer heavy cut-tag use? Just personally, I can't stand it and only use it when I'm really, really running on, but I can certainly use it more here if everyone prefers.
