fma and alchemical symbolism  
So I'm taking this cool class this semester, called 'Astrology, Alchemy and the Philosophy of Magic'; and guess what they let me do my final paper on?

Yeah, FMA. XD

So I've got this paper sitting around that analyzes a lot of the alchemical and astrological symbolism in FMA, with some mythology thrown in for good measure. Would anyone be interested in reading it, if I posted it? I find a lot of it really fascinating, probably the most interesting paper I've ever written, but I don't know if anyone else will.

I'd need to clean it up first-- at the moment it's written for a teacher that hasn't seen FMA but knows a fair amount about alchemy, but to post it here I'd want to modify it so that it would be for people who have seen FMA but might not know a lot about traditional alchemy. I doubt y'all would want to read a half page summary of FMA.

If people aren't very interested I'll probably post it anyway, but without bothering to change anything.

So, anyone want to see it?

Lol, actually I unfortunately didn't get to rewatch the series at all for this; I'm studying abroad in Italy this semester and left all my anime back home. But I've seen every eps about six times, and the manga is easily available online, so...

I would read it. I'm always up for more alchemy theories. It's so hard for me to do research on it.

*jumps up and down* I WANT YOUR WORKS CITED PAGE BEFORE ALL ELSE! ...and I'd love to read the paper itself, too. <3

...yeah. I'm doing my term paper for my World Religions course on how alchemical theory ties diverse religions together through basic philosophy. You would not believe the basic connections between ancient religions, Hinduism, Islam, Christianity, Taoism, and other Eastern thought-- all of which furthered the study of alchemy. *glee*

Heh, three others on this thread alone have done Hagaren-inspired term papers. We should archive them or something when they're all done...

What college you go to? I wanna take that class....

sounds fun. do post.

Ah! I'd be interested in reading it, as well as seeing your works cited page. X3 I've been randomly musing on doing some research of my own once my A.P. testing is over, and this sounds like a great start.
