They’re now at the footsteps of Hughes’ apartment… Edward wants to go in alone, and take the blame all for himself. Confess that it was his fault to Hughes’ wife.

But Alphonse… “Like it or not, I’m coming in with you.”

Edward is too noble for his own good. If there’s even the slightest trace of his work in something bad, he goes all out to apologize and punish himself. Even when he’s not at fault personally, he tries to shift the blame off of everyone and onto himself, like some tragic Atlas.

This kid has had enough self-sacrifice to last a lifetime.

“We made up our minds. We said we were getting our bodies back, no matter what… But if people are going to die because of that, then I don’t want mine back.”

Alphonse, too, is noble. But in a different way. This is an incredibly selfless thing to say, and I believe it when he says it. Even if his own life is ruined, he’s okay with it as long as other people can continue living their own lives.

Both of these kids are good people. They really are.

They’re usually logical and pragmatic, but when emotional issues like this arise… They’re too quick to throw themselves to their knees and give up the fight.

I got dragged to see Beauty and the Beast on Thursday and it ended up making me want to revisit the doodles I did when working on @the-flame-and-hawks-eye‘s birthday present  (◠‿  ◠✿)

I think that after you killed the cat and threw it into the yard, my man, you climbed up  here  and  waited.  I  think  you  watched  the  children  and  passed  the  time  whittling  and  dreaming.  When  night  came,  you  saw  them  passing  their  bright  windows  and you  watched  the  shades  go  down,  and  you  saw  the  lights  go out  one  by  one.  And  after  a  while  you  climbed  down  and  went  in  to  them.  Didn’t  you?  It  wouldn’t  be  too  hard  a  climb straight  down  from  the  big  limb  with  a  flashlight  and  the bright  moon  rising.
