post of appoloy  
This post is in respone to my earlier FMA post "lets have fun with dialogue" i have received sevral post stating that the idea used in this post is not original and was, infact, previously used by ZOMGFTA, and have been flamed for this

i am sorry to hear this, but i will state this clearly: i have not seen this page on the internet before, and pror to this post i have never heard of ZOMGFTA.the page was scanned from my manga book (vol. 16 which was given to me as a gift from my friend on her return from hong kong) the idea for this was inspired by a fanfiction i stumbled across on mediaminer.org where the fma characters were doing kareoke (edward sang "nobody's home" lust sang "i feel like a woman" roy sang "relight my fire" rose sang "let's dance" and scar sang "i will survive").

i appologise sincerly for any copyright theft but assure you that it was NOT intentional, as an art student i beleive in origianality any feel ashamed that, acident though it was, that i have taken a previously used idea. To ZOMGFTA, and all the people of livejournal.com and deviantart.com i appologise sincerly, and if someone will give me the e-mail address of the ZOMGFTA moderators, i will e-mail them with a formal appology for this post. in addition to this, the deviantation will be removed from my page and this same message will be posted on my homepage.

*scratches head* ooh, this is amazing. Really. What's the big deal? So two people got the same idea. Maybe ZOMGFTA got the idea from the exact same place, who knows! Or, even if Freaks DID just take their omake and call it her own, who really cares? It's one omake. A fanmade omake that really doesn't have any ownership rights of its own. The omake in itself is a ripoff of 2 sources: the original manga and the song. Ripping off a ripoff? Big deal. If ZOMGFTA DREW the omake, then we'd have a different story. But this in itself... it really does not matter. ZOMGFTA does not have copyright over the omake. It was all for fun, as was the one Freaks came up with. And whether Freaks just came up with the idea on her own or pulled their omake and tried to pass it off for her own genius is really not as big of a deal as it's been made out to be.
I'm amused that this sparked as big of a controversy as it did. Really.
