Friendly reminder that between the ages of 11 and 16, Edward Elric went through the portal of truth four times, used his own life force as a philosophers stone twice, and beat up god with his bare hands
I don’t know if I’m reaching too far. But I kind of understand Eva. I mean, I think she’s remembering how she felt in season 1 when everybody ‘hated’ her because of what happened at the Halloween party and Ingrid bullied her since episode 1.
In my opinion, she’s angry at herself, because she let her guard down and trusted Ingrid (and the others girls) again, and now they did to Vilde what Eva suffered back at the begining.
So, now she’s mad at everybody because admiting that you’ve tripped over the same stone twice is hard.
I’m thinking of hacking the Stone spell into my inventory so I can teach Tethys how to use Dark Magic… I’ve always wanted to do that, so much so that one of the new classes in my FE project thing is literally Dancers with Dark Magic.
This is by no means every fic I’ve ever enjoyed - that list would probably stretch to the end of time. These are a handful of the ones that I’ve enjoyed the most and were written by truly masterful wordsmiths, so I hope that you and your friend can enjoy them as much as I did. No doubt this list will grow as I find more lovely things.
It gets a bit long, so I’ll put it under a cut.
MarieJacquelyn’s Big Fat Hobbit Fic Recommendation List
BONUS: I couldn’t bring myself to edit any of the pictures of Aizawa’s battle with the Noumu (he has suffered enough, hasn’t he?!)– But I just noticed how terrified Aizawa must have been in this particular pic:
So I’ve counted my total hours spent on FE on my 3DS, adding together Awakening (1813 hours total, rounded, I’ve had it for almost 4 years), all three Fates (845 hours) routes, and Shadow Dragon (26 hours, across two unfinished playthroughs) It totalled 2693 hours, which is about 113 days, or 3 months.
I have also beaten Sacred Stones twice, beaten Lyn’s story three times, Eliwoods twice, and Hector’s once. I can’t give a good estimate of the hours those took, but I’d give it like at least 300 ball park. Which is around 13 days worth.
(I need to consult my Wiis (that is supposed to be plural) for these figures so they may be off by a whole lot, and if anything my guesses are on the low end) I beat Path of Radiance once, which only took me about two weeks, clocking in around three hours each time, but not every day. So let’s say thats about 10 days of 3 hours, so that’s 30 hours. Just over a whole day. I am about ¾ of the way through a second play through, but that’s only taken me about 10 hours, so that totals just shy of two whole days spent on that game (it’ll go up once I finish that playthrough). I am ¾ of the way through a game of Radiant Dawn (my Wii broke so its on hiatus), and thats been about 8 hours maybe, si that makes my time on the Tellius games about two whole days (This is likely too low.)
(As the years have gone by it takes me less time to beat an individual game, so thats why the times got steadily lower)
i read harry potter and the philosopher’s stone twice in one day when i was seven. i was bored.
when i was 14-15, i read 45000 pages in one year. that earned me a 100 euro national prize ‘for a student that reads versatile books’. there was no competition in our school.
i remember when we had a reading lesson when we were supposed to 'start’ the boy in the striped pyjamas. i read it 1,5 times that lesson.
i always won the book reading 'competitions’ in primary school (when we were supposed to do book reviews and the one who made the most won).
we were supposed to read easy reader books in school when i was 8. i went straight into the teen book section.
i ran out of interesting books in my local library when i was twelve.
i have carried tons of book into and out of the library.
i read my first foreign language book when i was 13 or so? it was probably some harry potter, i can’t remember.
when i was 8 and didn’t have a phone of my own, my mom had the library number memorised. she would call there and the librarians would tell me to go home. (at which point i had spent about 3-4 hours there)
i remember fridays on which i would go to the library, check out five books, sit on my bed and read one book after another.
when i was 10, my favourite book was harry potter and the order of phoenix because it was the thickest book i had read and hence took more time to read.
books have gotten me though a lot, including bullying and all kinds of tough time.
“This is the island of New Penzance, sixteen miles long. Forested with old-growth pine and maple. Criss-crossed by shallow tidal creeks. An important seabird habitat. There are no paved roads but instead many miles of intersecting foot paths and dirt trails and a ferry that runs twice daily from Stone Cove. The year is 1965. We are on the far edge of Black Beacon Sound, famous for the ferocious and well-documented storm which will strike from the east on the fifth of September – in three day’s time.“
