FMA Anime Profiles guide from Viz

Does anyone have Viz's Anime Profiles book?  I ordered it off of buy.com in February - yada yada yada - the wait time for the book jumped to November 30th.  Yeah, been tearing my hair out since February.  Well, seems I had it arrive while I've been out all day.

I've been too busy to look at it still, but something caught my eye when flipping through.  Namely Envy.  They have Envy listed as "her" and "she".  Never once did they use "he" or "him" on Envy's profile page. 

Envy can be anything but, well as far as the anime goes Envy's been established as a male.  The back has Viz & Funimation's logo's on it, don't they both refer to Envy as male in their mediums?

I'm not too upset about it, actually I was laughing.  Just thought I'd share.  Anyone else have the book and noticed anything off? [I did a search and couldn't find anything on this, so I assume this is fresh stuff.]

Edit: Thought I'd clarify something.  The Anime Profiles book is a Viz publication, and has the Funi logo on it because it's anime-centric.  The cover of the book features Al in the background, Maes and Roy in fthe middle, and Ed in foreground.

New FMA Fan-Fic: "Threads of Time" ~ Chapter 1 + ART

Premise: FMA Divergent AU where, among other things, it was Ed that at the tender age of 11 ended up bound to a suit of armor, and Alphonse (then 10) that begot automail, and the various impacts thereof.

This story takes place approximately two years after Alphonse Elric became the State-Certified "Full-Metal Alchemist," making the brothers 13 and 14.

Characters: Armor!Ed, Automail!Al, and many more to come!
Rating: PG
Pairings: None
Genre: AU, humor, angst
Spoilers: None
Length of this Chapter: 1,885



"...This, like so much between the brothers, was a sort of choreographed dance. They knew each other too well to be able to feign that they weren't subtlety working to manipulate the other. Yet, much as it was still manipulation, it was manipulation with only the best of intentions. In "Elric," it was called 'caring.'..."

Searching for a fanfiction...

(longtime lurker, first time poster ^^;; )
A few months back (possibly longer or shorter, I'm not sure exactly) I read this really amazingly sad fanfiction...In it, Al had gotten his body back, but it interpreted every touch as pain, and Ed tried to fix him. I can't remember the title or the author, and I've been looking for about two weeks now, but I haven't managed to find it, which is why I'm asking here...
(If it helps, I'm sure that the fanfiction included the lines "waste not, want not" and "my eyes weren't blue," but I've tried Googling using a combination of those phrases and nothing came up; also, I think it was on LJ, because I can remember reading peoples' comments after it, with icons and all...)

Thank you~

Faked to my journal and crossposted accordingly. X3

Absolute horror kept him reading, utter disbelief stopped him from slamming the book shut then and there. And while his frantic fervor only allowed him to pick out certain words, they were enough for everything to come together in a wave of one terrible realization after another.
