_tsumetai - waiting in the Air


I WAS DOING MY HISTORY ESSAY! (finally. Its like midnight)

and then while looking for an answer to a question I had about the unit I found THIS in my textbook:

"Alchemy was a much favoured science in the Late Middle Ages. Alchemists had two aims: to change rather worthless metals such as lead into precious gold, and to find an "Elixer of life" that would make humans immortal. Alchemists were part philosopher, part scientist and part magician. They mixed and heated up substances in workshops that resembled modern day laboratories. Although the alchemists did not succeed in either of thier goals, they aquired knowledge that would lead to the development of chemistry and the preparation of drugs."

So pretty much the two things that they are trying to accomplish are basacilly what, in the anime, are against the rules.

Pretty wierd eh?

The Edward Elric Screenshot Project

I've already started this project of getting Screenshots of Ed. Now the page (in which I made in a very big hurry) doesn't have a good layout (need to change it ne), but I've taken a hundred or so screenshots from the fansubs, more to come soon. Please support^^

Looking for Alchemy Symbols

I've never posted here before but no this is not an introductory post. In my Chemistry class I am doing a project on Alchemy (and Merlin but I have yet to connect the two in this), SO what I am asking for is screenshots of any transmutation circles or anything that shows transmutation (as in a screenshot of showing the materials and then a screenshot of what it was turned into). Any help would be greatly loved. ^_^ (Also Kudos for anyone who can tell me what the hell Merlin has to do with Alchemy.) But besides that the project is actually enlightening. ^_^ There are some things in Alchemy the show doesn't go over.

Hello, I'm a newbie here. I go by the name of Neev. ^__^ *waves*

I started reading the FMA manga a while ago, when Torriyama's World first started putting it out, but ended up getting distracted by other things. I've just recently gotten back into the fandom and caught myself up on the manga releases. Mmmm...I do so love this series. <3

Anyway, as an introductory...thingie....I have some fanart for you all.

Hmmm...other than that... I know that the FMA anime is available on bittorent, but it's difficult for me to get older episodes that way because I can't just let DLs run over night because it causes my DSL to commit suicide. (I have NO idea why, but it's a pain in the ass.) So I was wondering if any with AIM would be willing to send episodes to me via AIM, 'cause that generally works much faster for me and I can get eps downloaded much more efficiently. If not, that's totally cool, but I figured I'd ask. ^^;;

EDIT: Lots of people have offered to send me eps now, so you need not offer anymore. ^___^ Thank you so much, those who did offer to share the goodies. <3 At this rate, I'll be all caught up in no time...

^__^ Well, that's about it. It's nice to meet you all!

Slowly making FMA icons

Unlike my Naruto craze where I made... how many icons is it? I don't even know. I made a lot of Naruto icons. Unlike that, I'm slowly making Fullmetal Alchemist icons. Of course, I'm a LOT more satisfied with these.

One Lisa Hawkeye mini-movie, one Angsty!Ed. Enjoy!

Leader terminology help.....

I was wondering if anyone who can understand Japanese could help me out.

What, exactly, is Bradley called? I've seen in fansubs him being called "Fuhrer", "Leader", "King", and "President". Or maybe some of those were just Roy saying that he wanted to become "president". So, my question is: Which of these is the most suitable translation? And, is Bradley both the King/President and leader of the military? Is it just a military-led government?

....not that I'm wanting to know this because my Ed muse is thwapping me on the head with a bunny set in a future probably-ending-up-AU universe where a big war gives Roy the momentum and popularity to become president/king/grand high poobah, oh no, definitely not....:coughs:

Thanks! :)

Ed in drag (kinda) WIP

I nearly peed myself laughing drawing this thing. Ed is very hard to draw for me I'm not sure why. Actually everyone in fullmetal alchemist seems like they're very hard to draw. Maybe it's the style...

WARNING: slight nudity, drag (kinda)
