I'm working on writing an AU chapter fic (mostly) focusing on the Elric brothers and Winry. The story's gonna take place in the US, if that changes anything? I dunno. :| Anyway, since I'm going to be referring to Al and Ed a lot, I figure I should stay consistent with their names. Which is used more often in fics, Ed or Edward? Al or Alphonse? And, since the boys are going to be over 20, what would Al be calling Ed? "Brother"? Just Ed?
What do you guys think? XD;; Thanks for any help~ ♥
