I am going through episodes 40-51. I want to rant about them. I'm posting my first rant up, just to see if anyone's interested in reading them once I'm done. Here's the first one.

Meanings to the text in the Transmutation Circles

Hello, everyone. Long time Fullmetal fan here, new member to the community. Dunno if this has been discussed before but I've found out that all the random words tossed into the transmutation circles and the papers Ed's given by Fuhrer King Bradley actually have a meaning behind 'em.

Turns out they're parts taken from a book written in the 1400s by George Ripley, an actual Alchemist of the times. The book is titled Recapitulation of the Twelve Gates. Seems like Hiromu Arakawa did some heavy research on this kinda stuff and it's a real treat for those who happen to catch on to this.

I'll LJ Cut the entire text so as not to cause any problems for those who wanna skip over it. :P

@_o; Took me an hour to write that all down. The italicized text is what usually appears in nearly every episode of Fullmetal. It appears in the documents on the desk during Al's explanation of Equivalent Exchange, inside of the transmutation circles (even on the DVDs by FUNimation), and several other places. George Ripley was rumored to have created gold that he supplied by way of the Philosopher's Stone, but apparently nothing been proven by that.

Interesting, no?

Fic Idea in Fic Form! :D!

Heh...idea that came about from listening to Boy Friends and Renai Sankoushou ~Love Reference Book~ (which my friends and I call Ba Shoo Wa, thanks to hagane_bean XD). Don't ask me how it was they inspired me...they just did. O_o;; Happens all the time where stories are inspired by those kinds of things. XDD

Let it be noted that I have only a slight idea what to do with this story line...but if you have an idea, let me hear it. ^_^'

Anyway, here's the fic, enjoy!

Automail is real!!

I was watching GMA this morning, as usual, and they had a guy on with a 6 billion dollar bionic arm and you know what the first thing I thought when I saw the overall design? OMGAUTOMAIL!!!

Here's a link to the article, I'm going to go picture digging:


Edit: here's another article, talking more specifically about how it works.


This one has video and such on it, as well as more pictures.

I got a bit inspired, and decided to extend my last post on FMA characters and Cabalistic numerology. For those of you new to this odd little exercise, this is Gematria, where one calculates the numeric value of a word or name, and finds out what other words, names, phrases have the same value. These same-valued elements then are thought to have some connection, they are in a way "the same."

Of course this is simplistic (Cabalistic thought, a form of Judaic Esotericism, is complex and covers a lot of ground), I had to make guesses as to proper translations of specific letters and combinations, and it's all in fun.

But hey, we are all here to have fun. And I know how simple things inspire much crack here . . .

[seal] I'm an egg

[doodles] More doodle dumps, and a bit of a poll.

Okay, last Friday I went to the local mall (in Makuhari, which is in Chiba, Japan) and cleaned out one whole gacha-gacha (capsule) machine XD; One of the figurines in there was an Ayanami Rei figurine where she's sitting on a stoop with her legs up.

I liked the pose so much...I put it on Al.

And, here's a ton of kitty!Al doodles.

edit: crud, I forgot to say that this is MOVIE version Al, which means spoilers for movie...sorry, sorry, sorry! >_<

Adobe PS7 brushes?

I believe I've seen a post or 2 floating around in the past about FMA Adobe Photoshop 7 brushes, but I can't seem to find them. Could someone point me in the direction of some good FMA brushes?

Hot Topic Merchindise Update + A Request for Help

Okay, for those of you who were asking for an FMA messenger bag...

I wasn't sure how soon they would get this out and it's actually out pretty quickly. I can only assume the hoodie will drop in the next week or two along with the two new t-shirts in the following month.

Forwarding all of your requests to Scott now. Any more, post them here ^_^


You guys want to see other shirts without just Ed and Al on them? Well, here's your chance to try and make it happen. I'm still in DC so I don't have any of my pictures or scans to forward to Scott. I need you guys to post OFFICIAL ARTWORK ONLY that you think could be used on t-shirts.


Links, stuff hosted on photo sites, personal scans, etc. All will be greatly appreciated.

AND if you see something you like that someone else posts, REPLY. I can measure how much you guys like a certain design by how many comments it gets. Then I can pass that on to Scott as well and "greatly" recommend it. I don't know if it'll do anything, but maybe if there is any support put behind one design, it might "help" it's chances at being made.

Thanks for input on the shirts - I'll have to give our licensee (the people creating the art) the heads up to cut it out with Ed and Alphone(!) on tees by themselves.

Ladies and gentlemen, this is from Scott. I got it while I was out getting my Howl's Moving Castle book (^_^... Howl... ::drool::....) and when I got home, I had this in an email. I didn't expect a response so quick, but, looks like we're likely to see some character t-shirts soon!

I also love how he acknowledges the "Alphone" crack XD

Much ♥ for Scott!


Continuation of the Fic Idea...

Well...bunnies are eating me alive...and so was this scene. XDD This particular bunny takes place about a year or so before this ficlet which is titled You're Not Here.

Well...yeah...O_o;;; Like I said...feel free to jump in if you want...T__T It's boring writing it on my own...

FMA 2 English Demo!

For those of you with PS2s and some spare change, there's a playable demo of the second Fullmetal Alchemist RPG in the latest Official US Playstation Magazine. Just figure I'd give everyone a heads up.

(If this is too spammy, just delete it mods :O)

If you're looking for it in stores, it has a Grand Theft Auto cover. Note that I have no clue if the version sold at stores has the disc in it or not, as I have a subscription.
