I like pictures. 8D  
Yes, there are spoilers here, for 29 and 30, and probably 31, since the images were taken from the preview for it.

So, let me get this straight.

I'm pretty sure the red things are pieces of the incomplete Philosopher's Stone, as we've seen the imperfect version of it about half a dozen times so far in the series. From the second image, we see the kid is eating (...) it. While I don't condone eating Rocks, this is very interesting as we can see the end result is, essentially, The Kid, but with a disturbing air of Envy-ness to him. Is he a Sin now, or what? Do you have to ingest the philosopher's stone to become one? You can't see it in the image, but he's standing over the crumpled body of Izumi (wah!). I got to thinking from this image, that maybe, because to do Human Transmutation, you need the stone, maaaaybe Envy tried to get the Kid to ingest the stone and then fuse the two of them together. The end result does look a little bit like a scary sort of Envy/Kid hybrid.

I know it's probably way too far fetched to even be a possibility, but I'd thought I'd throw it out there nevertheless. Maybe in tearing down this theory, other people can build up something more concrete?

Also, does anybody else think it would be cool if there were characters in this series who were symbolically linked to the Four Horsemen? Not that it would have anything to do with it at all, but I can't help but think Archer fits the bill for War perfectly, and Scar seems like Death--his self-proclaimed mission is the deliver the sinners, after all. I dunno, I thought it would have been neat.

Okay, yeah. That's... all I really had to say.

*Throws self to the wolves*

I'm really not trying to make any theory this time, because everything is too confuse in my mind. All the link between Envy and the kid...also Izumi's strange care for the kid, and a terrible doubt if the kid will be one of the Sins or just a homunculus without a role in the Sinners party.
Absolutely no decorum.niwakaame on May 3rd, 2004 09:35 am (UTC)
Concrete? The only comment I could think of would be 'kamehameha' so I'll keep that to myself >.>
Haha,interesting.But wouldn't it be sad if cutey Envy had to fuse with anyone? I wonder what mystery boy's homonculi powers are?....wait,that should be easy,fusing within substances,such as he did with the bed?...where would his 'array' be?
Four horsemen? pardon my total lack of culture,but what exactl does this refer to? I believe I've heard from it in a Charmed epsisode-but yet again,I don't like this series,so..>.>

The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse, from the Bible. Which version? No clue. But general consensus seems to be: War, Death, Famine, Plague.
Pretty sure those are right. ...kinda.

Well the boy can do alchemy without an array like Ed and Izumi can, which means he's seen the "Truth", but we've seen him behind the door. So he wouldn't need one. La! :D

And yes, in the Bible, King James Edition, the Book of Revelations, I think. I can't remember where they talk about all that fun end of times stuff, but this book sticks out foremost in my mind for some reason.

wait,that should be easy,fusing within substances,such as he did with the bed?...

and like he will do (?) with envy? there's been nothing so far to say that he can't fuse wtih human substances.

and, in the second image, note the fact that HIS HANDS ARE THE SAME.

We are all fuzzy robots.: teh eyemakaioh on May 3rd, 2004 09:40 am (UTC)
Oi dude you know, I hadn't noticed that the kid ATE one! (I'm slow :)
But I can't blame him, they look like lozenges. I had conceived a quite odd fanfic in which someone mistakes an incomplete philstone for a lozenge - hilarity ensues.

I figure the philstones have the consistency of a lozenge, because they're made from liquid and I recall Dr. Marco's sorta rebounded cutely when he poured it out... but that's because the idea of eating one by mistake thinking it's a lozenge amuses me greatly.

Umm... I have no real theories regarding creepy-kid and Envy, but it looks to be very sad ;_;
Nice screencaps, btw

Haha! Lozenges? I have to admit that thought crossed my mind more than once, though it was more like "OOH! Pretty candy!"

Thankyou. :D I make Animation Shop my bitch!

maybe when those sins were made, the creator couldn't get them to do alchemy, but possibly the creater has been able to refine the creation to do that aort of alchemy.
-just a thought
brosef stalin, leader of the broletariat.arisato on May 3rd, 2004 11:15 am (UTC)
I don't know; it was just an idea, but I started thinking that maybe, Sloth was made by none other than the Elric Brothers themselves. They left the body in the house in the commotion afterwards, and there was a window of time for the body to become a full-fledged homunculus.

Of course I haven't read much of the manga, so I can't say anything for sure. Just idle thoughts buzzing around, I suppose.

he's standing over the crumpled body of Izumi

Whoa! WTF!! Does that mean Izumi's dead?!! O__O
brosef stalin, leader of the broletariat.arisato on May 3rd, 2004 12:45 pm (UTC)
Dead or collapsed, I have nooooo idea. e_e We will see. She appeared to be all *alive and well* in the opening credits so maybe they won't kill her. Just put the poor woman in pain more than was absolutely necissary.

Ed + unbridled philstone (ala laboratory five madness) = scary alchemy powers gone haywire and nutso, dazed Ed (;.;)

Homunculus with alchemic power (Moofy) + ingested philstone = ?

I think we should all be very afeared. Start running, people ><;

I don't know whether it'll be an Envy/Moofy hybrid. I don't like the idea (I wuv Envy too much! And Moofy is too CUTE! *cuddle*) but I s'pose it's possible, seeing as we seem to have one too many homunculi (assuming Fuhrer dear is one ><). But his spotty patches are in a different place from Envy's. He's still got Ed's arm and leg by the looks of things. But it looks as though he's got Envy's arm to boot. But we know Moofy can transmutate his body, so... *shrug*

I am now utterly confused, thank you, lol! ^^;

In regards to the four horsemen of the apocalypse ("Five!" "Shut up, Ronnie") I'd like to nominate Tucker for Pestilence. Seems to fit, no?
seventh_shadow on May 3rd, 2004 04:54 pm (UTC)
Hah I'm so proud of myself. People are calling him Moofy now. >>;

*anyway* If they screw over Moofy he will NOT love everyone and things will suck and I will be very, very angry. *Moofy hugs* I say we protest.

Great; I now have this image of Envy being a drug dealer who stole Ed's share. Poor Moofy....eating rocks does bad things to your guts. (I didn't notice he was EATING those things 'til you pointed it out. o_O;;; )

As for the Four Horsemen analogy....that'd be so awesome if it did turn out like that.
