the days when i think of the 2003 anime often are behind me but sometimes I remember the time Envy disguised as Winry randomly yelled “ALPHONSE YOU’RE THE ONE I ALWAYS LOVED” to distract Al AND IT WORKED! Al got kidnapped because of that even though Al already knew it was Envy! and I giggle.
Bc honestly I can see that happen in manga continuity only instead of being shocked Al’s reaction is to break down into uncontrollable laughter and he’s so busy laughing he is successfully kidnapped for like five whole minutes.
He’s just armor convulsing on the ground and Envy just grabs his foot and starts dragging him away meanwhile Ed is screaming “AL PULL IT TOGETHER YOU’RE BEING KIDNAPPED”
AND aL IS LIKE “BUT BROTHER DID YOU HEAR WHAT HE SAID”
“YES AND I HOPE YOU TWO ARE VERY HAPPY TOGETHER BUT SERIOUSLY FOCUS”
“i CAN’T IT’S TOO FUNNY”
“i SWEAR TO GOD AL”
And once he calms down Al just basically spends the whole time giving Envy a speech on why his shipping preferences are WRONG and brother and winry are OTP BC REMEMBER AL IS THEIR BIGGEST SHIPPER and once Envy’s finally like “OKAY FINE THEY’RE CUTE TOGETHER NOW WILL YOU SHUT THE FUCK UP” and Al ‘s like “cool OK bye” and immediately busts out.
Now I actually want a series where Envy imitates people and says things in an attempt to psychologically torment them and ends up cracking them the hell up instead
