Do you think Ed is an affectionate father? I just read a fic where he is more distant and doesn't really cuddle or kiss them and that's the exact opposite of what I thought he would be like as a father. I like the thought of him being like Hughes and worshipping his children (and Winry) but maybe that's just wishful thinking on my part '^^ What's the fandom's opinion on this? I haven't been in it long so I don't really know

EDWARD ELRIC is going to be the bEST fATHER EVER oKAY anyone else who says differently is selling something dO NOT worry your pretty little mind. Because there’s something about having a shitty parent growing up that makes you wanna be the legit best parent ever for your kids because you don’t want them having a shit life and going through what you did bUT I MEAN COME ON. Ed freaking out when that baby in Rush Valley was born?? He was ECSTATIC. Imagine when it’s HIS KIDs being born—awesome awesome awesoooome—and how he played with Nina and Alexander and how kind he was to Elysia, and he’s already leader of the Winry fan club, he’s going to be the most wonderful—albeit awkward at first—husband oh my god. Like he’s gonna get all the traveling out of his system and finally wanna go home and start a family because going home was always what he and Al had always wanted and if he has to travel oh god the kids are coming because he doesn’t want them to have to see his silhouette against the morning sun as he leaves??? He’s gonna transmute (more likely have Al pfft)  them mobiles with skulls on them and make THE WORST dad jokes because they will revolve around SCIENCE and be like “if you don’t listen to your mother this will happen to you too” and then show off his automail leg and he’s gonna barge into the Brigadier General’s office with this determined look on his face and Roy will just be like oh jeez what is it now fullmetal and Ed will just pull out one of those huge wallets filled with pictures and just start utterly gushing and Roy will silently cry because history was repeating itself and there’s no way that brooding teenager could become anything like Hughes but he does and as far as I know, that seems to be the general consensus for the entire fandom. Ed is an A++++ papa.

Basic Male Cosplay Makeup Tutorial!

aka:  Alex rambles on for 24 minutes about cosplay, binders, wig caps, contacts and makeup with the goal of being at least somewhat helpful?

I had a few requests asking how I did my male makeup for cosplay so here you go!  Apologies for the length, I go into a bit more than just the makeup so it ended up longer than I planned.  Also, I said it ten times in the video and I’m going to say it again here; cosplay makeup is very character and face specific.  This is what I’ve found works for me personally but I both recommend and encourage looking at other tutorials to see what works best for you!

Things I mentioned: 

Other helpful resources:

  • Male vs. Female Contouring Guide
  • This video does an excellent job of showing where and how to EXACTLY contour for a masculine face.
  • For those who want a more dramatic eye try here and here.
  • This is mainly a female makeup tutorial but it’s a really great one and can be applied to male makeup as well so check it out!
  • How to property put on a wig cap/wig.
  • I forgot to mention; use concealer to cover up under eye shadows or dark spots before applying foundation.  Also a good nude lipstick can go a long way in making your lips look more masculine!

Sweetheart, I once a performed an emergency C-section on a pregnant Gorn. Octuplets. Let me tell you, those little bastards bite. I think I can work some magic on your missile.

Tokka - Did I ever tell you how sweet it is that you invented metalbending?”
"You could stand to mention it a bit more!"

they kiss everywhere.

there are late sunday afternoon kisses in the kitchen, pressed close beside the stove while the coffee bubbles in the pot and scrambled eggs sizzle in the pan. these are languid, easy, soft — these are a bit of stubble burn and a smidgen of sleepiness
