caffiene-induced fangirl theories abound!  
Disclaimer: I swear the only thing I'm on is caffiene, but some would suggest otherwise.

Hokay, it's 3:30 in the morning where I am, and I've been interchangeably reading FMA and HP fanfics.
So my mind started wandering, and I came up with a very odd possibility, that Harry and Ed live in the same world, since JKR never really talks about Germany being called Germany. It totally could be Amestris, only modern time. And alchemy is really the ancestor of their 'magic'. The wands in Harry's time really could be embedded with miniature transmutation circles, with the phoenix feathers, unicorn hair, or dragon heartstrings serving as 'drawing medium'. There's a specific wand movement for each spell, just like a type of circle for each aspect of alchemy. With Ed 'discovering' circleless alchemy, a need for easier alchemy arises, and over the years wands are born! Much more convenient, yet still limited to the elite few. Only those born with powers can perform magic, just like alchemists come by it more from genes than studying. There's also the Philosopher's Stone-connection/possible arc. Complete with Nicholas Flannel. So with Harry doing wandless-magic, he's like... a modern-day Ed.

and... wow. I just re-read over what I typed.
And while it all completely makes sense in my head, I think I should head to bed now...

Feel free to spurn or discuss any other possible connections or whatnot, yes I realize how bizarre most people would consider this.

To make sure that I can qualify this as a real post,

some horrible EdxRoy fanart. That should never see the light of day.

Ahaha! My two favorite fandoms! Yay!

That would be very, very cool, except that we know that Harry's world is, essentially, our world present-day, judging by the way Dudley throws his Playstation out the window and forbids Harry to play on his personal computer. And considering all the other places we hear about in the series (i.e. France, Bulgaria, Egypt, Ireland, etc.), I think it's safe to bet that the Germany in HP is the same Germany that we all know and love. But I do think that magic and alchemy are very much alike in many ways, and there's even proof that they're related in the 1st book with the whole Philosopher's Stone business. Mm.

Lolz, in a surprising twist, Edward Elric turns out to be the HBP!!!1 Ahaha, *dies*

That would make my world. IF ONLY, JKR, IF ONLY.

Nicholas Flannel

Flamel. Flannel is a fabric.

*blushes* meep. I can't believe I made that typo...

Heheee, that's a nice theory. xD I never really undestood Harry Potter, but thena gain, I've only seen... er, I think, 3 of the movies and never read the books? XP

I like the fanart, as well. Great job on it! :D

Spoilers follow in order to explain some points relating to 'preforming circle-less alchemy'

Ed didn't 'find' how to preform alchemy without circles... he just didn't realize it, but he was given that ability from preforming human alchemy and seeing the gate.

So, in order for alchemy to evolve to magic, everyone would have to create a homonculus and sacrifice some body parts to become a 'wizard'. We'd have a lot of stumpy people and a lot of annoying homonculi on our hands then. Don't forget, human transmutation does not just take an arm or a leg, but organs, senses, and genetalia* are canidates for being traded to create homonculi. This is a very deadly procedure if you lose something a little more important than a leg...

(*as in Scar's brother's case when he created Lust)

I explained the wands though, which have the transmutation circles in them. People wouldn't be able to do circle-less alchemy, because the wands and wand-movements would function as transmutation circles. People with innate talent for alchemy would become 'wizards', since they would be able to handle the wands better than most. So there wouldn't be freaky homonculi scampering around the place. Just... freaky wand-wielding alchemists!
