If Ed and Al hadn't tried to bring their mother back and had just gone on living by themselves (seeing as they were sans-Hohenheim when Trisha died), do you think their relationship as brothers be less close, or closer? In what ways would they interact differently than how they do/what we see during the course of the series? I'm not just talking about Ed's guilt complex here -- I want to know what personality traits and quirks you guys think would definitely be different if they hadn't attempted human transmutation.
The other day one of my friends started talking about situations where she could see Ed and Al living off on their own, and I'm curious to see what some other peoples' opinions on all this is. :O
And, uh. Possible spoiler warning for the comments, I guess. XD;
