Ages and Images  
Hey! Two things i wanted to ask about.

One: I've brought this up on other threads, and finally figured I'd just ask the commnity at large: what is the best FMA image gallery? Because most of the ones I've found are either manga scans and screencaps 9which are great for icons, no so great for wallpapers) or official art at an annoyingly small size (like fullmetal-alchemist.com's gallery.) So I was wondering if anyone knew of any galleries which had big offical pictures. If anyone could help me out, I'd be very grateful!

Two: I want to participate in fullmetal-alchemist.com's art contest (Like a lot of you, I imagine) but I'm not sure of the character ages. I know the age difference between the militrry people can be fairly wide, and I'm afraid if I make Hawkeye or Roy too young, I'll bleep Fury out of existence! And that would be bad. Fury's like Vir Cotto, only cuter. So does anyone know the official ages of the military characters? Specifically, Roy, Hughes, Hawkeye, Havoc, Armstrong and Fury. Any and all help is appreciated!

Thank you very much. ^_^

Yeah, I would want to know a good gallery, too. *Just got Photoshop, and would want to make good wallpapers, for once.*

And the ages... Roy is 29, I figure Maes is around that, too. Riza I think is younger maybe 24-25, Havoc too. Alex, maybe older... 30-32, maybe? Not too old, because his sister is the same age as Havoc (gaiden 3)... And Fury must be 20-22, as he is the youngest.

How did you find that out? Is there a book with this info? Or are there mini-profiles scattered in the manga? Sorry, I'm not really knowledgeable about FMA merchandise just yet. I avoid animate, YJA, and ebay like the plague to keep my wallet healthy ^^;

Hum... Roy's age was said in the omake of... the second volume I think.

I'm like you for the merchandise ^^'

But do you not agree that he's just like Fury? I certainly see a resemblence. Cut, in a weird sort of way; hapless; small, chubby, with weird hair; don't really know what their superiors are up to, and don't really WANT to know. I could just see Vir fiding a lost puppy (if they had puppies on B5. Which they don't) into Mollari's chambers.

"Can I keep it?"
". . ."

And if Hawkeye were any more like Ivanova . . . GEEZ, that would be scary.

I haven't made any other B5 - FMA connections YET . . . Scar kinda reminds me of G'kar, though - Big, scary, religous fanatic who is nevertheless inescapably cool . . . and Havoc reminds me of Garibaldi. (Can you not see Garibaldi flipping out if Sheriden made all female personell wear miniskirts? Can you not see Ivanova threatening to kill him?) Babylon 5 even has a walking (well, gliding, anyway) talking suit of armor! (However, that's where the similarity ends, I think.)

If I come up with any more paralells, I'll post em for sure. ^_^

I always thought Fury was astoundingly similar to Hyuuga Makoto from Evangelion.

Yes,now that you mention it, I see the resemblance. He is a lot like Hyuuga. Only cuddlier. (He looks like such a puppy!)
