FMA collector's cards photo/scan!

I just posted this in my own journal, but I thought I'd share here too.

Many of you may know by now that I'm irrationally wasting my money buying packs of FMA collectors cards from Walden Books, in an attempt to get a complete set. After Walden's sold out and didn't restock, I feared only the internet or conventions would be my ownly hope in complete my collection. But lo and behold I was wrong! Suncoast in my mall has them for $1.99 a pack (still only 3 cards a pack), instead of the $2.99 Waldenbooks had them for.

But 10 packs later and I only managed to add a few more cards to my collection. I'm only missing 5 cards out of the 45 card set.

HOWEVER! I took a picture of all my cards! So I'll share the crappy quality photo, complete with some notations on them.

Color code:
Orange = SP (foil) card #.
Blue (be it bright, so light it's nearly white, or dark blue) = regular card #.
Green = the number of EXTRAS I have (no green number means no extras--YET.)

Mom: I wonder about you *leaves*

You know con season is coming...

Okay, I know it's like 5 months away, but it's not too early to be thinking about AX if you're a cosplayer ^_^;. The fandom is bigger this year than last and I'm CERTAIN that the FMA cosplayers will be out in drones (everyone will want to be in the military o.o).

Many people who attended last year took part in the cosplay gathering that happened, I've started the thread on AXEZBoard that'll give us an idea on who's going, who they're planning on dressing up as and what date/time/location this should go down at. I encourage everyone to put in their two cents worth so we can get an awesome gathering going ^^

I was just wondering how many people out there have read or are reading the FMA manga. I bought up through volume nine a week ago, and was quite stupid and, in a moment of boredom, instead of just reading book 7 straight through like I should have, grabbed book 9 and started flipping.

...please tell me someone else out there has also read this far, so I can start screaming to them about this. Plllllllleeeeeeease. 'Cause right now, with where it stopped, it's just a big, "NO, NO, NO, JUST NOOOO!"

....book 10 better be out soon. That's all I'm sayin'.

*points to subject heading* Yeah. That. *screams*

MegaCon Fun

Heh, I went to Megacon yesterday and to my surprise found that Funimation was there. So, of course, I went on over to see the Al...and take pictures. *evil grin* I dressed as Winry and my friend was Ed so both he and I posed around the Al. You know I had to do it...I sat underneath Al and looked under his loincloth while Ed stood shocked and pointing his finger. Now, I saw way too many flashes of light than are possible from just one camera so when I poked my head out from underneath, there were like, 20 people taking pictures of us! I laughed so hard and ducked back underneath Al's cloth. XDDD Just thought I'd share that little bit with y'all. Once I get the pictures developed I'll post them up here.

And yay for Funimation! I won the first volume of FMA on DVD from them! *dances with glee* I simply adore free stuffs. ^-^

FMA Exchange

While watching the episode last night, my wife started watching it with me.

[Wife] Which is the one all the girls lust after?

[Me] Roy Mustang.

[Wife] Which one is he?

[Me] That one there.

[Wife] (casually) I can see it.
happy days are here again

This sounds familliar...

So, I was lookin' around the Anime News Network encyclopedia when I noted a series called Armored Alchemist. Of course, it was an automatic reaction to check it out... and the similarities are very intriguing.

Plot Summary: Kazuki Mutou is mortally wounded saving a girl from a strange monster, but is given a new life through the power of the alchemically-made Core Iron.Al, anyone? Along with a second chance, this grants him the ability to use his own Busou Renkin, or Alchemy Weapon. Joining forces with Tokiko, the Busou Renkin user he'd saved earlier and who gave him the Core Iron, he uses his newfound powers to fight the malevolent Homunculus monsters and protect his friends and the rest of mankind.

Anyone know any more about it? I'm thinking it's a rip-off, but I don't know when it was published, so I can't dismiss it yet. Still, though... Homunculus as villains? Don't they ever get a break?

Having been bored this weekend, I set about making an army of Envys, and came up with these little guys:

...Unfortunately, I can't remember where I got the bases from, as I've had them floating around my hard drive for years ^__^;;

Making mini-Envys is fun.

Edit: Credit for the bases goes to http://www.lolaart.net/pixel/ - thanks for pointing this out!

Drabble arc

I've started on a little drabble arc called "Different Ways to Say "I Love You"." Basically, writing a story where the point is to show the love between characters without them ever saying "I love you."

The first one I wrote is a gen FMA piece. Yes, gen. It's not meant to be Elricest, but brotherly love.

The fact I can write gen gives me happy feelings.

Moving on. I will be writing more of these drabbles. I hope to get a sisterly!Winry, Roy/Ed, Roy/Riza, Ed/Riza, Al/Winry, and a drabble from Ed's POV out. Maybe a motherly!Ross one too.

And now, the drabble.

Cosplay references

Sorry if this has been asked a million times before, which I'm sure it already has >_> But does anybody have a reference for military uniforms or Ed's? I have this strange urge to look at all the details for some reason. I'm pretty sure I found a link in one of the comments here before, but I guess I lost it. Sorry if this is spamming or anything.

On a side note: Did anybody realize that the Dub VA for Al was also a VA for Hiro Sohma from Fruits Basket? And Hiro is a sheep? XD And in episode 16, Al had to sit in cargo with sheep? It just dawned on me.
