I need someone to throw back and forth some fic ideas with. I'm working on a multi-part series and I have a few questions about characters.

If you're up to discussing FMA and throwing some ideas around concerning Ed, Al, and Roy, please IM me at BotanFerryGirl

Simply, the story is this:

Al has gotten his body back from the gate, but shortly after, due to the time spent at the gate, his body's immune system has failed. He falls sicker and sicker with a disease no doctor recognizes. Ed researches diseases and healing alchemy to no avail.

Hawkeye strong arms Roy into visiting Ed after Al falls into a coma.

This is where my problems have begun to arise. I just simply need someone who is familiar with the fandom to help throw ideas around. I need to discuss the ending I have planned! I'm utterly torn and I need input!

I'd jump on AIM and chat with you, but at the moment I'm kinda out of it, so I'll just put my two cents worth in here, and you can take it or leave it or whatever.

There's really only one thing I wanted to comment on, and that was on where Al falls ill. I don't think that a disease "no doctor recognizes" would be necessary - his immune system has failed, and so the question becomes not what the illness is, but why Al's body isn't fighting it. It could even be something as simple as a common cold - which can be fatal if your body is unable to handle and fight the bacteria that causes it.

This could also help out your plot a bit, because instead of looking for a disease, Ed is looking for a "cure" - a way to "fix" his brother. You could also bring a touch of reality into the story - because there are diseases (viruses, I think) that cause the immune system to fail, and there is no cure for most of them (most visable example: AIDs virus).

I'm not sure if that's what you want to do with the fic or not, but I thought I might as well put in a thought. ^^;

Oooo, thanks for the input.

The plot is more about Ed, and how he deals with it, and Roy, and the way he's affected.

Ooo, you can aim it up anytime when you are up to it. I'd like to discuss it with you! (there's more I want to say, but..!)
