Random thoughts....minute spoilers for chapter 38.



I was going over chapter 38 for around the fiftieth time, when the thought suddenly hit me. Why are all the 'good' State Alchemists prone to overreacting about their specific faults/world views?

Ed ---> No need to explain. Any variation of small will be changed to Super Small Speck and/or variations.
Roy ----> Havoc simply said "It's impossible of you", Roy twists it to "Wet Match". This is so so so so like how Ed does his height thing.
Armstrong ----> Uh. He can take the simplest sentences and turn it into the most melodramatic line ever written. To which Ed is very unhappy with. XD;;;;;

So, uh. Is this just me, or has anybody else notice it?

I think all the State Alchemists are a few corndogs short of a picnic in one way or another. Be it paranoia (Marcoh) or obessesion (Kimblee), they're all kooky in the head. Uh, but yeah, I think that's what gives them their character. =D;

And let's not forget Tucker. And I know that Magwar wasn't a State Alchemist, but he was a little loopy. And Ed and Al's father, and Dante. And Izumi (temper, temper).

I think it's more of just an Alchemist in general sense. You know how scientists are stereotypically eccentric. =3

I'm one. XD (Dunno about Manga!Hohenheim, though. Although the anime....he's definitely a geek)

Genius and insanity goes hand in hand. XD

I'm amused by how all the good guys have the same kinks, though.

It is a skill passed down through the generations of Armstrong family.

It has to be some type of epidemic that circulates throughout the office. Even Riza is prone to overreaction, only hers is a lot more... dangerous.

It's the air conditioning.

Maybe her parents didn't let her have a puppy as a child.

Maybe alchemists have tendency to develop inferiority complexes. Perhaps this could be born from all the studying they had to do and, because of this oddity, they were ridiculed at school for being odd. Or it awakens in the military as State Alchemists are treated very lowly, especially in war, like dogs, and sometimes the public treats them poorly/don't appreciate them.

I don't think Ed is ridiculed for being odd.....he was teased for being short, though. XD
