Putting it behind a LJ-cut since the question itself could be considered a spoiler for some.
My specific question is, when Alphonse becomes a state alchemist, are we ever told what his title is? If so, what is it? (As in, Ed was Fullmetal, and so on and so forth.)
I'd ask the author of the fanfic, but I read it a while ago and haven't been able to find it since. I actually can't even remember what they used, just that referred to him as the "something" alchemist.
This got me to wondering about fanon (fan info accepted as fact) versus canon (established fact from the series). I've seen some things like that pop up in other fandoms.
So if you want, are there any other strange bits of info floating around the fma community that are fanon as compared to canon? Or the reverse, something that is totally based in the series, but commonly misinterpreted as being false?
Thanks for your time!
