I recently re-watched an episode of Fullmetal Alchemist. It still held up.
(print for matsuricon, will probably undergo a few more changes before printing, but for now i’ve got other things to work on)
Which arm does Edward offer to Alphonse, back in the body they fought for? The one Alphonse just sacrified himself for.
During the last con I went to, someone told me they were kind of disappointed to see that the arm Ed used in his final punch to Father wasn’t the one Al gave him back -which wouldn’t have been very practical since it was still weak, but could have been a great symbol of that sacrifice.
But then, this scene.
Does a certain line about hands made to help people, not to destroy them reminds you of something?
#Every single move of his right arm probably hurts a lot #he doesn’t care #in front of him is sitting the brother who sacrified everything to save the people he loves #and he’s going to help that brother stand again on his own legs
"i’m sick of watching people die and i can’t just sit back and take it anymore. i won’t let anyone else get killed, not when i can protect them."
