Should tears be pricking the back of my eyes?  
I'm reeeeeeeeeeeally sorry/I'm inept/etc.etc [self-deprication]. >.<

Long time lurker, etc., etc. Hi to all. Anyways, I've just seen the whole series (ok, most of it, I skipped a few in the middle. >.>) I'm completely flabbergasted and now I'm dying (not literally of course) to see the movie, like the lot of you are probably.

I do have a question, though. Let me get this straight. Ed died, Al brought him back, Ed sacrificed himself to bring Al back. Ed's sacrifice probably (or did) worked because he gave up the bond he made with Al, the people he met, experiences, etc. And Al ended up losing his memories and came back as his 10 year old self. Ed then ended up on the other side of the gate (which I'm still slightly confused about, err, the meaning of why it happened). Or am I just being redundant/not making sense/being an idiot/etc?

One more question (apologies), I'm thinking about cosplaying one of the characters for Halloween or something, probably Ed (an Asian and female ed with dark dark brown hair. >.>). I've never done anything like this before, any beginners' tips to keep my head on straight? And yes I have been browsing the FAQs.

Thanks, sorry if this was a pointless/improper post.

Oh, and the meaning behind him going across the gate? He died. Apparently when you die, you switch sides of the gate. It's a whole parallel universe type thing.

Not everybody crosses the gate when they die, though. In fact, apparently most don't, their souls get stuck in the gate and used as energy for transmutations. Otherwise random people would be popping up in "our world" all the time. The reason Ed stayed alive but was sent back to our side is mostly that the gate is a spiteful bastard, and since Ed was actually intending to sacrifice himself for Al, it kept Ed alive instead but unable to be with his brother. That's what I understood, anyway.

My view of it is the thing about sacrificing their bond was just to make it meaningful, and the real reason Al ends up like that is he was restored to how he was when he lost his body. Think of it as Al's body being kept within the gate, and Ed using himself as the toll to get it back. But others might disagree. Ed ended up in our world because that's where the gate leads. But I do think that without the bond between them being so strong it might not have worked.

I like the theory of the gate being spiteful, but my idea was that if you have seen the gate before you die, you can go straight through to the other side, like what happened to Hohoenhiem originally. He'd probably seen the gate a billion times switching bodies before Dante shoved him over.
