Okay, my hubby just had an interesting thought that expounded on.
In chapter 101 Roy is on a transmutation circle- we assume it was for human transmutation. So... if Roy opened the Gate, even if he didn't want to, he would lose something. My hubby suggested perhaps his hands because were impaled anyways, and most likely there would be some serious permanent damage there.
So, if he does lose them, if he could get automail, but he couldn't snap most likely. I just don't see automail being sensitive enough to let him snap. Then my hubby reminded me that he wouldn't even have to snap, he would clap his hands like Ed does now.
But.. if Roy had 2 automail hands, could he still clap? Or would one have to be human? Can alchemsy flow from one automail body part to another?
And, is this even a likely scenario at all? I mean it looks like Roy is going to have to lose *something* because he opened the Gate, even if it was against his will.
What do you guys think is Roy's fate?
