"And they all lived happily ever after. Ha ha, I'm just effing with you. Everybody dies."  
I think series like Full Metal Alchemist should have warning labels, have them up before episodes with huge angst sessions,so that way you can make sure you're watching the episode in a brightly lit room away from any windows or sharp objects.

Okay guys. I know most of you already know this,but in case you're newbies like me, I'll cut this.


I've prided myself on being totally oblivious to this series' spoilers, I've been told it makes it much more enjoyable..and more painful. True dat. True dat. I cried when Nina died..but by comparison, if you wanna say I cried when she died, I BAWLED when Hughes died. I was like..sobbing for the entire last half of the episode without stop. OH MY GOD ;x; MY FAVORITE CHARACTER! I looked forward to Saturdays because I knew FMA was on,and with FMA came crazy angst sessions..and then Hughes popping up at random moments and rambling about his daughter and how wonderfully adorable she is. That was what I looked forward too. And now he's gone! *Wibbles* And what makes it worse,oh my gosh Elicia!! I hate little children at funerals x___x so much. It tears me up,it does.

To make a long story short, I was depressed beyond words for like..30 minutes after it was over,and I probably depressed anyone who IMed me during that 30 minute period as well. XD;; I was just wondering if I'm overly emotional or if anyone else shared the reaction? XD;


I just needed to vent a bit. I'm done. Sorry if this is a tad off topic [?]

[edit]
Oh yeah. for the record, I have a serious case of an angst-hangover from the OD of it last night. XD

Yeah. I think thats part of what makes them so dramatic though. Not milking it, just moving on without a second glance. Like it was no big deal. It wasn't till it cut to the scene of the funeral I forced myself to believe he actually died x_x

I agree. Personally, I never expected it to happen.

*is sad again*

Curse them, playing with our emotions!!

ohmigosh,i'm sorry. I didn't mean to give you an angst-hangover too. XD; *gives you a cookie*

*munches happily on cookie*

ith okay. I'm an angst!whore. =D Although you couldn't tell from the fics I wrote.

me too *highfives* angst*whores,unite! Part of me loves the angst, but oh my god, it tears me up so bad,it does. I can normally poke at least a little fun at the angst Which is why 'Alchemist Soup' [or as I like to call it 'HUMAN SOULS FOR ALCHEMIST SOUP!'] took form, but when they die..man,you can't mock death when its like THAT. I guess I'm just a little masochistic deep down. I love the angst and I hate it. All at the sammmee time. ;w;

You can pretend they're sitting on fluffy white clouds and making fun of everyone else's stupid antics ^^

I live off angst

What's Alchemist Soup?

Say..since you seem knowlegable,can I ask you a question about episode 25 that puzzled me? Why is Roy's hair all..crazy different at the end of the episode all of a sudden? @x@; he looks like he's got a receeding hairline XD;;;;

Alchemist soup was the cracked up brainchild of myself watching and summarizing what was going on in FMA episodes to a friend. That friend suggested I do summaries of each episode in that fashion.So I've been working on doing so. Sort of. I have to watch through the earlier episodes one by one. XD; I have the end of the one episode where Al bugs out and runs off done out,though.

I think he slicked it back to be more dressed up. Or maybe it looks funny under his hat. XD
Esprit Libre Fanficbrocas_aphasia on May 1st, 2005 01:16 pm (UTC)
Flat, you mean? He slicked it back and put a hat on. To look presentable for the funeral. they were all dressed up fancy.

At least that's my theory ^^

He looks like he's 60 distinguished.

So where can I find this chicken soup of alchemy?
she makes mountains out of molehillsjigglygrlcarrie on May 1st, 2005 04:32 pm (UTC)
hahaha. XD what an oldie *pictures Ed just ranting about him being a geezer* well, I plan to put it up on my 'random wtf' site, Moonside (major props if you catch the obscure game reference in that) ...I'll try to post it up soon,and of course I'll put it up here too XD If you want,I'll give a sample.

I get emotional with these kind of things, but I rarely right out cry with tears down my face. Furthest I ever get is a good tearing up (with the exception of the very end of FMA >.>). Anyways, I think when I first saw 25 He started falling and I just sat there staring at the screen with my hands over my face, and then Elysia went on her "Burying Daddy" speech which made me crack even more, and I don't think it really sunk in that he'd died until the end of that episode, or later on when Ed comes back from Izumi.

Your icon amuses me soo much.

Yeah,when he fell I got all teary eyed and cupped my hands over my mouth choking little cough-sobs (so i didn't wake my parents or anything. That'd be interesting to explain to them.) the "burying daddy" speech just made it worse.

And then Ed's part.. ;x; Such a suiting end to such a tragic episode. Like one final twist of the knife,as if they didn't think we were hurting enough. Meanies. XD
