I needed to share this little story because it's so impossibly cute.
I'm currently watching my five year old god son while his mom is at work. He is as much a fan of Fullmetal as the two of us are. He likes to sit and draw transmutation circles, then put his toys in them and clap his hands to transmute them.
He refers to Al as Al or Alphonse, but Edward is ALWAYS Brother, no matter what.
So a few minutes ago he was running around clapping his hands and transmuting things. I ask him, "can you set things on fire like Mustang too?" So he grins really big and stands with his back really straight and he makes the motion of snapping his fingers. Then of course something huge explodes and we are all blasted to the floor. Then I ask him, "well what about Armstrong?"
And what does he do?
He PULLS HIS SHIRT OFF, flexes all hardcore then punches the ground.
I haven't laughed that hard in a very long time!
