Fanart, whee!

Because I feel I must assert myself somehow as a decent and contributing member of the FMA fandom. And because the movie scans previously posted have put me into a state of hypertension and I must share my own piccage to purge some of the anxiety.

Pic info:
General, Ed and Al
No spoilers in the pic, and if you still don't know about Heiderich, whether or not you've finished the series... that's your loss.

Movie Wallpaper

When I saw one of the recently posted scans, I had to make a wallpaper of it.

Movie Spoilers, of course!

Yay for hours of tedious, latenight image editing. I hope it doesn't look too bad...Big orange letters are really hard to get off a picture...

So hearing about England made me terribly depressed, which by the way if anyone reading this was or knows someone who was there or affected by it, you have my thoughts and prayers with you. So I tried to avoid the news and ended up starting a sketch and before I knew it it is almost 5 A.M. and I've not slept yet. I figured since I joined the community I might as well start trying to contribute some instead of just lurking. It didn't turn out quite the way I wanted, but I couldn't fit the image of when they were younger above them. I did have to downsize it a bit as it takes up a full page. Hmm...scanner alchemy?

If you haven't seen any images from the movie or seen the end of the series, you might not want to look.

Fan Performance!

With no Karaoke track or Midi files in sight, I still went ahead in doing my own little rendition of Lost Heaven. The vocals are still I tiny bit off from the music at spots, but I've already spent almost an hour trying to synch it up, and I figure it's good enough.
Try not to dig your eardrums out with your nails as you listen :P

Title: F@ggot (inspired by the song by Mindless Self Indulgence)
Pairing: Kimberly/Al
Rating: Whole doujin is NC-17, but this page is R(for hand in pants).

Did anyone else notice....

Yesterday, I saw Howl's Moving Castle (which was awesome by the way) and I was wondering if anyone else who saw it noticed how Howl did the alchemy-looking thing.

He drew what looked like transmutation circles, and the effect they caused seemed liked alchemy. Just wondering if anyone else noticed. ^__^

Homunculus in 'Faust' + Assorted Historical Alchemy Related Things

I recently grabbed a copy of 'Faust' by Goethe the other day, and while reading the book, I found a very intruiging bit of dialouge.

From my edition

2. Laboratory, in the medival style with elaborate and clumsy machinery for fantastic purpose.(Lines 6819-7004 in the text)

Wagner: A glorious product you soon shall see.
Mephisto: What will it be?
Wagner: We make a human being.
Mephisto: A human? And what pair in passion
Have you locked in the chimney pipe?
Wagner: Forbid! While procreation used to be the fashion
We think of that, pardon, as tripe.
The tender point from which life used to slide,
The gentle force that issues from inside
And took and gave, first to become existent
Then to absorb the near, and then the distant
That is divested of its ancient rank:
If animals still like that kind of prank,
The human being with his gift must win
Henceforth a purer, nobler origin.

A few lines later 'Homunculus' comes to life within his test tube and then leaves. (I don't want to spoil Faust for anyone, so you guys will have to go pick it up!)

Anyway, I've surfed around and taking a real shine to alchemical history, but I did find some information that also included information about homunculi. I forget where I found the article (or even the article itself, which bothers me to no end), but the article discussed that some viewed a homunculus to be above man because it was not created by procreation. (See above quotation of Wagner.) If I recall correctly, this belief was held by the first person to create a homnuculus, Paracelsus. (I'm really upset that I'm having such a problem finding this website. Blarg.)
