I always felt Ed would be a really cool person to be around even with his slight temper. He always seemed to me like the type of person who would end up like family. No matter who you were? Like the person you could always count on. Maybe it’s because I had an older brother who was nothing like him. And I just wanted to fill in for what I didn’t have. But I always thought ed would be really nice if you were real chill with him to.
100000% agree!!!! I think Ed is one of those people who’s like a flavor-enhancer of life, you know???? Like one of those people who you always have fond feelings of, like anyone who knows him (and is on his good side lmao) is like oh heck yeah ed elric, good kid, wish he was here right now, what a wild son of a gun. But yeah! I think this doesn’t happen very often because people are put off by his loud and obnoxious exterior, and otherwise he’s kind of an introvert, but those people who are able to find their way into his life definitely seem to stick and grow strong bonds with him. He’s kind of awkward about affections, but he seems to always know what to do and say when it counts, and he tries to do his best by everyone he meets. I mean, just look at all the people who were rooting him on during his fight with Father!!! He made so many friends who wanted him to succeed!!! What a good boy.
