Hey, when they sealed the gateway at the end of the movie and even series, were they cutting off the power of Alchemy to the world of Alchemy?

Or did it serve another purpose?

They're closing the Gate between the two worlds, between the 'real world' and the world with alchemy.

I'd say that they just closed up the gate that Eckhart and the Thule society had made, not the Gate per se. So no, they didn't cut off Alchemy and all that.

MAkes sense
Excuse my typing I have baby assulting the keybord.

That makes sense, but I thought they closed it on both sides. Roy sealed it at the end of the movie right?

I'm wondering if they are other worlds or other gates that are used as power sources...

Re: MAkes sense
yeah, they sealed Thule's gate off at both ends. I don't think it's within the power of Ed or Roy to close the Gate. And they'd be shooting themselves in the foot if they do that.

Al,(looking lost): We closed the Gate Niisan, now we're really stuck! And the world of Alchemy will have to learn how to use machines to continue!
Ed: DOH!

Like people said, they closed the gate between the two worlds, so that no one would be able to go through. What I wonder though is if it's sealed permanently, considering they say they'll never be able to go back; if it had just been closed I think they would've been able to. Or I don't know, maybe I didn't understand the movie very well XD;

I am confused
IF they closed the gateway between worlds so noo ne can use it to crossover both ways, then,why can they use Alchemy in the Hargen world? Or can they? The gate was the powersource. With it closed no one can get power to use Alchemy...

Hummm, more gates I guess or openings to the gate?

Going back.
Personally I think they know they can go back, Ed knows the array used to open it and he's resorceful enough to track down another "Place" where the gate is open. But I don't think he wants the COST of going back. I don't think he feels right using souls to do his Alchemy.

aurg it's pretty complicated, but you could do a fic about it. It could make for a pretty good emotional story. But I guess someone could pull it off...

The gate that was made in the film is not THE Gate, but rather a portal. Since they weren't sealing THE Gate, of course they weren't cutting off the power of alchemy. If you see the film, the portal that's created really looks nothing like THE Gate, which is what I think is probably key.

Thanks for the info. Bugger, now I'll have to rewrite every angsty word I just wrote though.... *Sigh*

Protal eh? Is it at all connceted to thegate though? I'd think it is. Possibly?

Re: Thanks...
The portal is probably connected to The Gate somehow (I mean, when Eckhart and co went through they got attacked by the gatebabies) but it appears that to open the portal you need a Homunculus or the blood of an alchemist for it to work.

Re: Thanks...
Damn, I forgot to mention that for the portal to be opened completely, it would have to be from both sides of the door, as it were. In the movie Al opened it with transmuting Wrath and Gluttony, while Hohenheim and Envy were used on the other side.

Re: Going back.
Yup. I seriously doubt there's a way for them to open the portal again now, seeing as they needed the "Great Serpent" (Envy) and the blood of someone from Amestris to do it. They'd have the blood, but they'd no longer have any serpent to do it with XDDDD;;;

Re: Going back.
I also thing they do need an connection to Amestris one that is open there.

As for the serpant, it will depend on the portal and whoese opening it. We don't know what other psychic/mystical things exist inthe real world. If Noah Exists, than other people must exist with similar powers. LOL, people like Lodge,Hyslop and Doyal wouldn't look like fools if they meet Noah!
