A letter to the fandom...  

Dear FMA fandom,

Even though all our hearts are broken now that the manga has ended, I don't want to see this fandom tear itself apart because of it. Writers? Write! Artists? Draw! Whatever your chosen format may be, yaoi or het, just please go do it! The manga may have ended but the fandom must go on! :) As Edward said, "M
ove forward. You’ve got a strong pair of legs; you should get up and use them."

Sincerely,
amethyst_koneko =^.^=

Part of the reason I'm not too active in this fandom.

I guess I missed it while catching up on Brotherhood. *Shrug.*

I haven't seen too much wank happening anywhere. I think people have been sharing their separate opinions which I think is fine. I haven't really seen it escalate, though.

I'll do whatever I can to keep the fandom going :3

This fandom will never die. It's that epic. 8)
Arakawa is truly a storyteller. <3

Honestly, I don't think you have to worry about it dying for a few years yet. Fandoms don't just die after the source material ends, sure they fade away after most people have moved on. It's a slow agonizing death XD. And some just keep going. *coughstartrekcough* Brotherhood and the manga are still being released in America too, so the English speaking fandom will continue to get new fans in for a bit. I would know, I didn't show up until it CN had aired the last episode for the first time.

Long as my lungs still draw breath and my heart still pumps blood, I'll be an FMA Fan if I have to die for it.

No worries.

Honey I live and breathe FMA so I ain't going nowhere anytime soon ... *hugs*

Hey, as long as people put up with my stupid crap, I'll be here. XD

Oh! You're the one who made that sad panda FMA tribute video aren't you! ^_^ I got an email from YouTube today about you for my video subscriptions! Even tho I don't like Ling, I did like the song so it made me smile. :)
Jordanna Morgan: FMA Writerjordannamorgan on June 14th, 2010 02:59 am (UTC)
Well, I'm only a fan of the first anime, so what's happening or not happening with the manga/Brotherhood means absolutely nothing to me. :Þ My fanfiction and icons will keep coming for the foreseeable future. Even though not many people care about my stories because they are first-anime based. *sadface*
Ketita: movie edketita on June 14th, 2010 06:50 am (UTC)
First anime fans are still around :) just being quieter lately I've been ficcing for Ed/Alfons Heiderich for the past few years, and don't see myself stopping either

I'm a new member of this community and I'm glad to read this. =)
That's why I decided to join. ^^

Fma's flame will not die so easily! ^o^
I should have find some Roy's quote, but nothing comes at the moment. ^^"

Actually, I think there is still a lot of things to tell. The end of the manga is open to a new future. I'll be pleased to read what fans can imagine. =)

Welcome to the comm! :D

I have no doubt that FMA's flame will continue to burn brightly for some time to come. That flame could only be extinguished if we let it. I only made my plea to move on because some of my f-list friends had been the victim of some unnecessary wank and general harassment (i.e the old het vs yaoi battle. Het fans should NEVER enter a yaoi comm! :p) and I wanted everyone to focus on the bigger picture (sharing fandom love) and stop bickering over the end of the manga. Love it or hate it, it is what it is and nothing will change it. Pick yourself up, dust yourself off, and move on. Go do something productive instead of bitching over how the manga ended. I did my fair share of bitching (mostly in the privacy of my own personal journal) and now it's time to put it aside and move on. :)
