i was just watching the first episode "that a friend let me borrow", AS-style, and i noticed something that i didn't the first time.
when Al and Ed first get to town and stop in at that corner shop, there was an interesting sound effect.

Ed asks the old shop keeper dude who Cornello is, the old dude freaks out and is all like "WHAT~? YOU DON'T KNo..blahblahblah?!"
at that very second he freaks out, there is a sound byte from "Yoshi's Island" - the sound of Yoshi hitting the information boxes. Now, since i haven't seen the beginning of BA-FMA in ages, will someone verify that it happens in the original?

it probably does, i just found that interesting.
...i play too many video games...

Our Fandom Has Been INVADED

By a sue. Please scream with me.

I have specially de-lurked to present you with the horror. Though I am also guilty of sue-ing FMA, mine is at least in the privacy of my mind. Mwehehheh. This is just... Well, at first I thought it wouldn't turn out too bad. After all, not all OCs are sues! Then she sings. Really. And Al compliments her on her... AUGH. Nevermind. Read it and comment, if you survive. Maybe its not all that bad, But I am freaking out on finding perhaps the first Sue in our fandom. ;___;

Poor Edo.

EDIT: Actually, she isn't the first Sue in the fandom, as I have found out ;__;. But nyarh. I overreacted a bit a lot.

And I fixed the link.

P.S. also found this cool scan of FMA Christmas :D

i don't know why i'm asking this -
but would someone please do a PSedit/fanart of Edo as Pesto from animanicas? with all the short jokes and everything, i just realised they act the exact same...just a random thought.

i'd do it myself but i dun have a scanner/i'm lazy and have schoolwork.
*can't get a sound byte outta her head of Ed with Pesto's voice "Are you Calling' me SHORT? Is that what you're doin'? Do i look like a bean to you?!"*

anyway. carry on..

Quick manga question. Does anyone know when Basque Gran shows up in the manga? I spent several hours looking through it last night and I couldn't find him. Any help would be appreciated!! Thanks! ^.^

Question, does anyone have any screenshots of Envy looking nice/kind/happy. Not like, psychopathic or anything. I do remember one scene somewhere near the beginning of the series...

Also, does anyone happen to have some shots of him looking confused? Or could get some?

I was reading the November issue of the Discover magazine, that interview with John Donoghue in the annual innovation awards. His research is quite interesting...decoding brain signals so machines can sort of convert brain commands into machinery...sort of how automail works, maybe. But this post isn't about that...

I came across this line.

'There's been an extraordinary change in the way we have integrated machines into our body. If you look at cars, there's a little homunculus inside each one making it go.'

I know it's not Mr.Donoghue's intention, but I keep seeing a mini-Envy running around like a hamster in car engines everytime I read that line. XD "The New Mercedes : Comes With Your Personal Envy!" "The Nissan Wrath DX"....or something along the lines...

Stupid, I know.

In chapter 13 of the manga, there's a page nine where Envy goes Yippy!

I made an icon of it, and accidentally replaced the acutal page with it. >.o Could someone please send me that one page (scannalated)? Pleasepleaseplease?

I don't know if Shan-chan (shanchan_cc) has already posted it here for me, but...

In honour of FMA coming to Cartoon Network, I wrote a badfic. We all know that in a few weeks time, ff.net will be overrun with MarySues and such. I'm just preparing you guys ... Read at your own risk.

I've been wanting to post this a while ago but I was afraid of getting flamed. I'm not anymore. These are my opinions, so you can hate and argue if you want but most likely I'll hate and argue back.

Ever since FMA has aired in the US, on Adult Swim, there has been many disputes, flaming, wanks, just plain ol' hating, mockery of Mary-sues, mockery of noobs, mockery of dubs, mockery of AS, and mockery of basically anything that is not the old and original fandom-- the fansubs(as well as scanalations) and the people that have been loyally watching, reading and following before November 6th.

I just wanted to say... people... calm down.

It's not the noobs, the Mary-sues, Adult Swim, OR Funimation that is ruining our fandom... but it's us in the community ourselves that make such a big deal out of it all.

If you really want a segregated community, we might as well ask the mod to block out all incoming joins and delete everyone that joined after Nov 6th. And yes I know that that's not a great idea.

I admit. Knowing the effects of what an anime airing on AS does, I was pretty annoyed at the fact that one of my favorite anime titles was going to become another one of the victims. And I wasn't too fond of the 'an1me inyuasha adult swim lolz!1!' fangirls. Still isn't. And I too was bitter against them. Maybe still is. But now I find some other things just as irritating. I'm not going to write fake fanfics and posts about being an FMA noob and hate on them without reason. Just because you have watched the entire thing or have been in the fandom longer, does not make you more superior to the ones that haven't. And doesn't give you any rights to go and make fun of things that hasn't even started. Yes, it hasn't even started! Even though episode 1 has aired, have we got any new fans joining and posting about how Ed is their hubby and Mary-sues, just like you claimed they would and are making fun of? They will be eventually. We'll deal with it when the time comes. (Time comes = When the community really starts getting flooded by those fans that most of us dislike.) But right now, I think what we need to do is to forget about it. Stop making it any worse. Stop rubbing it in. Stop adding to the problem. Stop with the mockery. Because it's not helping. It's kind of stupid and irritating actually. So why don't you say we all just go jump off a cliff into a big pool of grow-up and stop making such a fuss over the whole thing.

I'm not pointing this at anyone specificly. But you know who you are and I don't hate anyone for anything, I just think (read post). I know some people have nothing to do with this, and have helped the community move on to other topics by just being normal and posting what they usually post, and I thank them for that. And I also apologize for bringing back the topic once more, but this is really frustrating and I needed to get this off my chest.

Full Metal Alchemist is a great anime. Whether it's subbed or dubbed or have been trampled over by fangirls, I believe that it's great. I will still continue to enjoy and will not abandon this fandom just because it has become more popular, mainstream and is airing on Adult Swim.

I hope that makes sense to you. It does to me. Thank you for your time and LJ friends page space. Sincerely, Ji Eun.

(And if I am the only one who feels this way, I will be very surprised)

Title: Sad Song
Fandom: Fullmetal Alchemist
Pairing: None.
Summary: Roy angsts. And angsts. And then angsts some more. Anything else, and there's going to be spoilers.
Spoilers: Episode 26 in the anime, and 16 in the manga.
Notes: tatooine is teh awesome for betaing this. I should send her a gift basket or something. Watch out for the abuse of the English language and the raw, distilled angst. It also follows manga canon. Because I like it better.

well, I was getting tired of my Flame of Recca - Joker wallpaper, so I decided to make an FMA one. It's fairly simple, no special effects on it, but I like how it came out. Enjoy!

You know, there hasn't been enough CRACK posted lately. And virtually no talk of the FMA movie. What gives, guys? Are we suddenly becoming (god forbid) sane? So I bring you...


Warning, Adult Swim-only people: Spoilers of a sort you have to really look to find are contained, many more of them in the original post which I linked to. Beware.

wabisuke was semi-responsible for this XD;;;

In an RPG, apparently Archer likes wine and hot cocoa...so I said that makes him sound like...
