Mods, if this isn't allowed, feel free to delete, and please accept my apologies.

One of the most difficult things about writing fic is finding a beta. We've all been there; we write something we actually think might be decent, but we're not ready to put it out in the world without some kind of feedback. While many fandoms have established places to find betas, when you're transitioning to a new one, it can be difficult to locate a beta. To that end, we've created fandom_betas, a multi-fandom community created for the purposes of finding a beta. Or, if you're not sure that you want a regular beta reader, you can post your fic and get some constructive criticism.

So, join, friend, offer your services as a beta reader! We accept all fandoms, no matter how small or large, known or unknown.

I'm a little confused on if this is considered on-topic or not, so please let me know if this does not belong here. =)

goodanimeicons  is a brand new icon community that aims to include animes of all kinds. You can read more general information about the community here. I am one of the mods at goodanimeicons and I would personally love to see Fullmetal Alchemist be largely included at the comm. So please check it out and at least consider applying! 

Thank you!

(I figured since I've seen things such as RPs that are general anime-based and don't involve JUST FMA, this should be ok.)

Anime - Lust's motto an allusion to a work of art

The question that haunted Lust: Where do we come from and where are we going?

Maybe Lust studied art history in a past life!

"Where Do We Come From? What Are We? Where Are We Going?" is the title of a French postimpressionist painting by Paul Gauguin.

Painting and commentary here. Click on the painting to see a bigger image.

Wiki page here. Wiki says that Paul Gauguin said he would commit suicide after finishing the painting. His author page says he died of syphilis at the age of 54, though.

So? Kind of interesting trivial, right?


Fanfic by moi.

Title: Equivalent Exchange (yes I'm so original)
Genre: Adventure/Angst
Rating: T
Summary: Ed and Al are mostly happily living in England after the end of WW2. However, when they are ambushed one night, a mysterious being offers Ed a way to save his brother and return to Amestris. Unfoturnately it's a package deal, and the consequences are quite great. Now Ed's stuck in Amestris with no clue where Al is. And then there's Act 2, an entirely different story but not really.

the Flamel logo and motivational posters

First off, a question: have they ever explained in the magna or the origin about the Flamel logo that Ed, Al and Imzumi all use. I haven't seen every episode or read ever manga (what kind of fan am I?) so I don't know if they've ever said why Imzumi has that tattoo. Also, the "origin" episodes/issues don't say when Ed got a red coat with the Flamel logo on it and when Al painted(?) the logo on his armor.

Has the origin of the Flamel logo that Inzumi, Ed and Al wear ever been discussed in the anime or the manga?

I'm curious if there has been an episode (or something in the manga so far) that has shown why Inzumi has a tattoo, and the whys and wherefores of Ed getting his red coat with the Flamel logo and Al putting the logo on his "arm."

Now, some motivational posters.
