why is she not in more eds

I know you’re all waiting for content from the guidebooks, and I’ve admittedly been extremely slow with my translations. I’m going to be honest, I don’t think I’ll be finishing them any time soon- I’ve been working on translating another project, as well as my usual art and writing, and a cosplay I’ve got a month to make, and all in all the FMA guidebooks somehow wound up low on my priority list.

But I don’t want to just leave you guys hanging, so I’ll share what I’ve learned so far:

  • Den (The Rockbells’ dog) is named after Arakawa’s own dog, Densuke. Densuke in turn is named after Densuke melons, Hokkaido’s famous and extremely expensive black watermelons.
  • The Mustang vs. Lust fight was completely planned out since the beginning of the series, even to the point of taking into consideration the part where Roy’s gloves get soaked, so that’s why Arakawa made Havoc a smoker (so he could have a lighter on hand for Roy to borrow). Also, since that was going to be the Colonel’s shining moment, Arakawa intentionally downplayed him a bit in the early phases of the series.
  • The Maria Ross incident was also planned since Hughes’ death.
  • Barry the Chopper was originally intended to die at lab 5. But Arakawa really enjoyed drawing him, and as she thought about that, she realized that he could be useful for the later arcs with the military characters. Thus he wound up being the first character to survive longer than originally intended.
  • The reason Barry wants to chop up Lust so badly is because she resembles his wife.
  • Arakawa hates drawing scenes of people crying, since they make her feel sad too, but she doesn’t mind if it’s happy tears.
  • One of the important differences between Mustang and Bradley, which Arakawa tried to emphasize, is that Bradley has no problem casually throwing away any of his pawns, while Mustang never throws anyone away no matter what.
  • Arakawa sometimes uses lighting effects to give the illusion of tears on Al’s armor.
  • Arakawa is thankful for Winry, who can act as a buffering agent because she’s able to understand both Ed and Al’s feelings very well. Arakawa thinks the boys ought to talk to her more instead of shutting her out.
  • Winry’s reaction to meeting Truth (during the Fullmetal Honesty Hour: Truth-kun’s Room segment): “Hold on, Ed, why is this guy naked? And he’s saying stuff I really don’t get. Just what kind of weird friends do you guys have, anyway?”
  • Winry prefers guys who are taller than her because she thinks when she gets married, having a tall husband would look really nice in the wedding photos. Also because she saw a movie where the heroine stood on her tiptoes to kiss her tall boyfriend goodbye, and Winry thought it looked cool.
When I first met Taylor, I was in a relationship and she was in a relationship, and we just formed a friendship. And both our relationships ended and we just carried on being friends. […] you know, there’s nothing really I kind of want more than friendship there. I know her very, very well now and she knows me very, very well.

“Revenge?” You inquired with a smirk as he dragged you out of your room. 

“Come on. We have to make her feel bad, you know?”

“Aren’t we supposed to be the bigger people?” You raised an eyebrow. Stopping in his tracks, he sighed. “Aren’t you mad about what she did?”

“Oh, definitely.”

“Then, for once, just this once, for your…boyfriend, can you agree?” He drawled out the word ‘boyfriend’ as if testing it out and then nodded in satisfaction.

“Boyfriend, huh? I don’t recall you asking to be my boyfriend,” you looked around, aimlessly.

“But Y/N,” Jungkook whined, shaking your hand in his grasp.


“I’ve already told you I love you and I’ve kissed you,” He peered down at you with a raised brow. When you nodded, motioning him to continue, he shook his head as a chuckled released from his lips. “Now, all that there’s left is the question. Will you be my girlfriend?”

“Sure, I love you, too, so it’s very clear that’d be my answer. Now, what were you thinking for revenge?”

“That’s it? A ‘Sure’? You know what, I should’ve expected that,” He laughed.

“Did you expect me to jump into your arms oh so gracefully and give you a kiss?”

“I mean, that’d be nice,” Jungkook shrugged with a cheeky grin. Rolling your eyes, you stood on your tippy-toes and pecked his cheek. He pouted but nonetheless walked along. 

“So, girlfriend, my plan of revenge is messy,” Jungkook smirked, leading you to his dorms.

“You’re not gonna call me that always, right? I like the sound of it but do we want to be that couple?” After a moment of silence you nodded to yourself. “Of course we do. We’ll annoy the shit out of people.”


“So what were you thinking?” You asked again when you reached his room; a room you stayed in plenty of time. You were the one who hogged his bed and constantly fought over room while, Yoongi, poor Yoongi, had to watch from the other side. Unlike you, Jungkook had a roommate. 

Opening the door, you both walked in. At the sound, Yoongi’s head popped up from his laying down position on the bed. “Y/N! I never thought I’d say this, but I missed you here!” Yoongi shouted, grinning ear to ear. You’ve never seen him like this.

“Hyung,” Jungkook sighed. 

“Nope, I missed Y/N. How many times have I told you to apologize to her for ignoring her for so long?” Yoongi stood up and walked over to the both of you. 

“Many,” Jungkook rubbed the back of his neck, awkwardly, casting his eyes downward.

“Oh really? Well, hate to break it to you but it required a Vmin intervention to get him to apologize,” You playfully scowled in Jungkook’s direction. 

“Why, what happened?”

“Remember Y/F/N?”

“That girl I met once when she came over and after she left, I banned her from coming back because she was too damn annoying? Yeah, I remember her,” Yoongi rolled his eyes as if recalling a day he’d much rather forget. 

“She wasn’t my pen pal…Y/N was,” Jungkook still obviously felt guilty for picking a stranger over you.

“Oh? That makes a lot of sense. I liked your pen pal’s sense of humor and I liked Y/N,” Snapping his fingers he shook his head, “Should connected them sooner.”

“Well, now she’s exposed and Kook and I want to get revenge,” You clapped your hands, smiling sweetly.

“And we’re dating! Y/N, can’t forget about the highlight,” Jungkook grinned.

“I sure hope you are. The way Jungkook used to go on and on about you, you already knew he was in love with you.” 

“Oh really?”

“Hyung! Not important right now! Revenge plan, remember?” Jungkook waved his hands around.

“I love a good revenge plan. What were you thinking?”

“Remember the paint war we were supposed to have?”

“The one with the balloons?”

Nodding his head, Jungkook grinned. “That’s a great idea!”

Looking between the two boys who’d be thought being twelve years old with a conversation like this, you were confused. Paint war? Balloons? 

“You think? It isn’t too mean?”

“You’re asking the wrong person…I’d write roast the shit out of them with a diss track. How can I help?”

“Great. More of Jungkook’s friends. Wanna yell at me, too?” You overheard Y/F/N groan when she spotted Yoongi, Namjoon and Jin approaching her. 

Both you and Jungkook were hiding on top of a probably restricted construction structure. It was in front of one of the buildings being repaired from storm damage. Under the structure, was Y/F/N where you had planned her to be. 

“We were just wondering why you lied to Jungkook,” Jin said, innocently, walking closer, but not close enough to be ‘revenge-ed.’

“I have to explain it to you, too? Ugh, honestly if I had known this would be the consequences of being his friend in the first place then I’d–” You nudged Jungkook to hurry up and start. Jungkook sent you a smirk before dropping the blue water balloon so it landed on her head. 

She let out a shriek as you stifled a laugh. The boys in front of her laughed their asses off, and you quickly grabbed the special present Taehyung gave you. Throwing it on the ground next to her, an eruption of purple smoke was released. 

“Smoke bomb. Smart,” Jungkook nodded, handing you a balloon. You both threw the remaining balloons before the smoke dissipated and scurried off the structure. You pretended to be just walking in on the scene, noticing the boys motioning you over. 

“You did this!” Y/F/N pointed an accusing finger at the two of you. Putting both your hands up in surrender you denied, “We just got here, how would we?” You couldn’t contain your laugh as you observed her. She was a rainbow. Her arms were green and orange, while her head and torso was a mixture between blues and pinks. 

“Then maybe it was the other two,” She was fuming. 

“Us?” Taehyung and Jimin genuinely just entered the scene. All the while, other students walked by with snickers and smirks on their faces.

“Wondered why she got that.”

“I don’t care. She deserved it. You know she stole my boyfriend in freshman year?”

“She looks better like that.”

“I’d give a high five to the person who did that.”

Smirking to yourselves, both you and Jungkook returned to your dorm room. “Now, that, was fun,” You yelled, a large grin on your face. Tackling Jungkook in an embrace, you sighed in content. 

“Princess, as long as you’re dating me, it’ll always be fun,” He wiggled his eyebrows, suggestively.

“Says the virgin,” You smirked causing him to gasp. 

“Hey! You’re making fun!”

“No, no, just a small tease,” You leaned up and pecked his lips. Humming in response, Jungkook pulled you onto your bed. Hovering over you and wrapping his arms around you, he gave a cute smile.

“Just letting you know, I’m not letting go. Ever,” He buried his head in the crook of your neck as you laid underneath him.

“Good. Because I don’t want you to.”

The both of you soon fell asleep, your hand playing with his hair, a new thing you did that Jungkook loved. However, like the last time, you managed to move around so you were against his chest and legs tangled together. 

This time, when you woke up, there was no awkwardness. Soft smiles and sweet words were exchanged between you two and man, you wondered what the hell you did to deserve it. 

That day, you were both sent to you Dean’s office where Y/F/N, still some part of her body covered in paint splatters, sat in his chair. You sat in the other two seats next to Y/F/N. 

“I’m sorry Y/F/N, but no one saw it,” your Dean apologized.

“They had a smoke bomb! Believe me they did it!” She pointed another accusing finger at you.

“And why would they do that?” The Dean raised his eyebrow. You and Jungkook exchanged glances. You were both expecting this. If Y/F/N said you waned revenge, she’d have to explain why. And why would be the reason she’d be in trouble. Pretending to be someone else, especially if it was part of an assignment, was a violation and she knew that.

Opening her mouth a few times, she looked down and grumbled to herself. Looking back up sweetly, she apologized, “You know, it probably wasn’t them. I’m sorry for wasting your time.” Then she marched out the door and closed it behind her. 

“I’m sorry I had to have you here. You see, paint was thrown at Y/F/N and she thought you two were the culprits. Do you know why’d she’d think that?”

The both of you shook your heads in disbelief, widening your eyes. “What?” “No way!”

“I thought so. You can leave now,” the Dean motioned to the door. 

“See? Smoke bombs are smart,” you smirked, out of ear range of the Dean’s office.

Intertwining your hands, Jungkook sighed, “What an adventure; First I talked to my pen pal, then you, then back to my pen pal, then you, and then Y/F/N, and then you who was my pen pal all along? Wow, what a story to tell.”

“Yeah, at least we’re both at fault. We both did stupid things.”

“Because we’re both idiots,” Jungkook finished.

“For each other,” you pinched his cheek lovingly, causing him to groan. 

“You’re lucky I love you.”

“As Sarcastic Princess would say, I love me too,” You smiled when he chuckled. “Oh, and I love you, too.”

ITS OVER *wipes tear* I hope this was an okay ending that satisfied you all! Thank you all so much for reading this and leaving such sweet messages and asks. I couldn’t ask for a better bunch of readers.

As for the next pen pal, it’s going to be….*drum rolls* Yoongi’s!!! So all you Yoongi biased (heh me too) be sure to stick around!! Pls, I love making friends.

How did you like it? Any particular parts you loved? Let me know!

I love y’all~

There are three non-art students that Lardo lets into her studio.  

She never really invited Shitty.  He just showed up one day, his hands in the pockets of his jacket, said he was curious what she did when she wasn’t managing a team full of hooligans.  Lardo let him in.  She figured he wouldn’t stick around, or if he did, she could kick him out for trying to make suggestions, or for disrupting her carefully orchestrated mess.  It’s still surprising to her how quickly she got used to him being there.  He talked a lot, of course.  It’s Shitty.  But it was more questions than rambles.  It was him asking about her work and her techniques and about what she enjoyed about art.  It should have been annoying, someone cluttering up her space and talking while she was working.  Some days she did have to issue a gag order or threaten to kick him out if he didn’t shut up.  But nothing beat her creative block like talking with Shitty about her projects.  And she could always count on him to be with her at 3 AM the morning of a gallery showing, carefully applying glitter and sequins.

Jack she did invite.  A lot of the other guys on the team had places to go to get away from hockey, outside friends from classes and student orgs.  But as her frog year went along, she realized that Jack didn’t.  He spent his time in the Haus and in class and with the team.  She was in his room one day when she uncovered his camera, and they had a conversation about photography that led to talking about art mediums and about defining art.  Jack didn’t have a whole lot to contribute when they got more philosophical, but it put the idea in Lardo’s head to tell him to swing by her studio.  Whenever he was there, he worked quietly on his stuff while she worked on hers, and sometimes they talked, and sometimes he watched, but mostly they just enjoyed the quiet.  Lardo would introduce him to some of her friends that swung by, and most of them got a kick out of Jack Zimmermann sitting in her tiny studio.  But Lardo liked it.  And when she seriously suggested that he try out some art classes, maybe a photography class or two, he said he’d give it a shot.

Nursey came to Lardo’s studio the first time to bring her coffee on an all-night bender mid-way through second semester junior year.  She was sitting on the floor with printouts haphazardly spread out in front of her.  She was trying to work on her thesis proposal, but she mostly wanted to bang her head against the wall.  Nursey, who was always a little too nosy for his own good, glanced at her papers as Lardo venmo-ed him, and the grimace on his face made Lardo defensive.  “Dude, why aren’t you using headings?” Nursey asked.  “It’ll make it easier to organize and easier to read.”  What started as a coffee run became a three-hour editing session, which became 30 more coffee runs and a crash course in citation methods and, ultimately, a completed thesis.

Lardo let three non-art students into her studio, but Bitty never came to see her there.  Lardo knew that he had his own focusing place.  He worked in the kitchen, and when she needed him, she went to find him there.

Right to 'BARE' arms

Today in Phys ED, our principle went over the dress code and specifically talked about the girl’s clothes. When asked why she didn’t cover the male dress code, she responded with “Guys brains are always in the gutter. Trust me, I’ve been married for over 40 years. My husband’s still in the gutter. Us girls have to cover up for the boys.” I was super pissed, not only because she’s blaming us for being a distraction, but because she was dumbing guys down to be nothing more than perverted idiots with no impulse control. I can’t wear heels over 3 inches because it’ll distract guys? Fuck off.

The girls went into the gym where the guys were, and all of the guys had rolled up their sleeves to be tank tops, and rolled the stomach part up to be a crop top. They were screaming ‘AS AN AMERICAN, WE HAVE THE RIGHT TO BARE ARMS!!!’

Apparently they had overheard what we were being told.

For all of class, the guys in first period PE were rocking skin and promoting equality. It was priceless.

So I had a thought.

CS Lewis said that Susan’s story “wasn’t over”.

Remember that time in Prince Caspian when Lucy had to go wake the others because she’d seen Aslan? And she was supposed to have them follow? And Ed voted for her, instead of against her like last time? And they all went, and they couldn’t see Aslan at first? Then Ed could. Then Peter could. And it took Susan the longest. But she could eventually. She apologized.

Now apply this to the train wreck scenario. Or pre-wreck, first off. Maybe life post-Narnia for the Pevensies was like this scenario.

Lucy and Edmund and Peter remember what Aslan had told them about “finding him in their world” and “learning to know him by that name”. In this scenario, it’s Lucy who gets it first. She was closest to him, anyway. Then she tells the others. Susan dismisses it as “games we played as children.” Peter says it’s best not to assume until they have more information. But Ed, remembering how Lucy has always been right about these things, especially concerning Aslan, believes her. Ed and Lucy then convince Peter.

They see Aslan again. In their world. But Susan doesn’t see him yet. And then there’s the wreck, and Susan is left behind, “no longer a friend of Narnia”.

But if we follow the trend with that scene in Prince Caspian, Susan sees Aslan eventually. That’s my main argument for why I believe “her story isn’t finished yet”. It’s just like when Lucy had to go wake the others, and only Ed believed her at first. Then Peter. And then, after awhile, after all the others, maybe after she had allowed herself a wild thread of hope… Susan believed as well, and saw Aslan.

I have no idea if this is a parallel that CS Lewis intended. But in that scene, Susan was the last to see Aslan after all the others did. That’s strikingly similar to her predicament post-wreck.

Just thoughts.

Isabel’s grandpa is dead

(and a powerful ghost)

I don’t have a LOT of evidence but here’s what I was thinking so far:

First off

Isabel never gives Max a straight answer as if it would be an awkward conversation. If the answer was simply “yes he’s a spectral” I don’t think she would have had a reason to change the subject like that.

Secondly, ghosts don’t have legs

and every

lower body shot

we have seen of him

he was not only wearing the same exact bathrobe (ghosts appear to wear what they died in)

we also see no evidence of him having feet/legs

Most importantly, Spender explained that the only beings that can pass through the barrier are ghosts

I am not trapped”

(He could be alluding to a tool that allows him to cross, but then why the emphasis on himself? and another tool would also be a “loophole”)

This raises more questions though:

  • was he a spectral before he died?
  • how did he die/how long has he been dead?
  • do town officials know he’s dead? If not:
  • how is he paying for food/water/electricity for the dojo’s living members?
  • who has legal authority over Isabel and Ed?
  • why is he in charge of Isabel and Ed instead of Isabel’s parents? It’s kind of hard for Isabel to tell non-spectrals that she is being taken care of by her dead grandfather

On a cold Friday morning, more than 50 people sit in the auditorium of the Benjamin Franklin Health Science Academy in Brooklyn. Many have small children fidgeting on their laps.

The families are here for a “Know Your Rights” forum on immigration hosted by U.S. Rep. Nydia Velazquez, D-N.Y., and the local school district. Given the new, intensified immigration enforcement priorities announced by the Department of Homeland Security in February, the purpose is to help people understand their legal rights with regards to asylum, applications for citizenship and more.

A representative from Mayor Bill de Blasio’s office speaks, followed by representatives of legal-assistance and community groups. During the Q&A, one woman broke into tears as she described, in Spanish, her fears of deportation.

There are many tears these days, says the woman who initiated this event, the school’s parent coordinator, Christian Rodriguez.

“I have children crying in the classroom, crying in my office,” she says. “When I ask them, ‘Why are you crying?’ They have expressed to me that they don’t want their moms to be apprehended and taken away from them. It’s something heavy on my heart.”

Some More Healthy Murphy Sibling Stuff

These coincide with this post

  • Whenever Connor drives, Zoe makes sure to sarcastically comment on every single thing that he does wrong. She spent all that time in Drivers Ed, might as well annoy the crap out of your brother.
  • “Nice use of signaling your intention to change lanes there, Connor!”
  • “Good job at completely stopping at that stop sign!”
  • “What’s the rush, Connor? Why are you going 10 over the speed limit?”
  • “Zoe, if you don’t shut up this is the last time I’m driving you to Dairy Queen.”
  • They play rock-paper-scissors to decide everything. Last actually edible brownie? Take out the trash? The remote? All these decisions have been resolved by rock-paper-scissors. Usually best 5 out of 7.
  • Zoe taught Connor how to play a few basic cords and they have little jam sessions every so often. And they can both carry a bit of a tune, so they can match pitch and harmonize fairly easy.
  • Connor gives good hugs and he gives Zoe piggyback rides whenever she wants. But only for a hot minute. Homeboy has no upper body strength.
  • They totally make playlists for each other when they’re both off at college.
  • They’re not huge sports fans, nor do they get competitive very easily. But they will shove each other if the other one is winning at DDR.
  • Connor sends Zoe pictures of cute hedgehogs when he knows that she has a lot of schoolwork or it’s midterms/finals time. Zoe does the same for Connor, except it’s pictures of baby seals.
  • Connor will deny it vehemently, but Zoe once talked him into letting her give him a Lush facial and he will deny that he nearly fell asleep and that his skin looked banging afterwards.
  • They have a growing collection of coffee mugs between them. Connor’s favorite is a black mug with a UFO abducting someone that says “GET IN LOSER” and Zoe’s favorite is a sky blue one that has pictures of pugs doing yoga.
  • They have a lot of pictures on their phones of them taking selfies of them “third-wheeling” each other.
  • “This is what happens when we date each other’s best friends,” Connor says.
  • “I don’t care. I’m sending Alana these.”

((A/N) okay guys, I’m back again with another headcanon comp, this one is based on something my s/o and I talked about a while ago okay without further adieu here they are, and as always, happy reading!)

-Most likely you were found in the heart of Crime Alley asked a toddler
-Waylon saw you instantly and his heart melted so he took you back to his hideout
-the first time you cried scared him, he didn’t understand what was going on but knew to try and calm you

  • What I say: I'm fine.
  • What I mean: WAS ISABELLA MORE THAN A PLOT DEVICE? SHE LOOKED EXACTLY LIKE KRISTEN KRINGLE. ED IS A FRACKING GENIUS AND HE WOULDN'T HAVE HAD RED FLAGS GOING OFF ALL OVER THE PLACE? And for that matter, Oswald is a smart cookie himself. Why in the hell would he think not to have her at least checked out in her entirety to make sure his best friend and his own stated true love didn't get hurt or WORSE???? ASDFGHJKL!!!!!
  • Also me: I'm fine. I'm cool. I'm good.

Kevin and Nazz enter the factory well after Ed and Eddy have left.

See, if Kevin didn’t have that bent tire they would have gotten to the factory in a heartbeat and captured the Eds.

Okay, I just realized that Kevin and Nazz came through the door that the Eds didn’t batter through. Was it really unlocked the whole time? The Eds were quite excited so they may have automatically believed that it was locked. If this is true then it add to my theory that this factory was abandoned.

Kevin has to take his bike inside. Well, maybe I would too considering they’re in an area which is unknown to them. You never know what could be out there, Like the possible killer who Eddy may have inadvertently killed in the woods.

Upon Nazz questioning the rubber snakes Kevin shushes her. Or rather he says, ‘shup’.He practically told his girl friend to shut up!

And Nazz is completely head over heels by this.

She likes being talked down to? Or she thought it made Kevin look really cute.

What does Nazz find so attractive in Kevin? They’ve been close friends for a while. I think it’s because they’re able to tell one another about anything as they’re able to relate to having divorced parents. 

Kevin has always seen Nazz for herself. Once he learns that he has feelings towards her Kevin thinks he should act differently. They were never meant to be in a relationship. They were better friends. A relationship may work out later on once they understand love and themselves.

Nazz points out the lit up office. 

Edd left the door open when he emerged from the office. Maybe he closed it offscreen. The only reason it magically closed itself is for Kevin’s cop routine we’ll see in a moment.

“You are so on fire today, Nazz!” Kevin remarks as he playfully and roughly punches Nazz on the arm.

These are my favorite screenshots which really describes how the true Nazz feels.

What did Kevin mean by that?

Sweetness Part Three

Part Two

Y/N’s lips were formed in a pout as she sat in the small office of her and Harry’s home. Hers happened to be much more clean than Harry’s, up until today. Wedding binders, magazines, books, anything that held something to do with a wedding laid in front of her. Harry offered to pay for a wedding planner but she refused, she wanted it to be something special, to be just like how she had dreamed of it. Harry wanted it to be just how dreamed, he could care less if they married in a venue, on the beach, or in city hall, as long as she was happy.

Y/N sighed, looking at the watch on her wrist. She turned on the telly, switching to the channel that Harry’s interview would be airing. Harry had informed he was attending the after party for a bit, but she didn’t want to go, parties weren’t her things and she had been tired recently. Her graduation had happened last weekend and she was tired out from the graduation party her mother had thrown, then the one Anne had, then the one Harry had, so Harry had understood.

“So you and Ms. Y/N are getting married,” James smiled, showing a picture of the two.

It was one Harry had posted on his instgram, her arms around his shoulders, her chin resting on his shoulder, a smile on both of their faces, eyes bright and full of love. The picture was one of her favorites, it was taken on the sixth day they had spent together.

“Yes,” Harry smiled, “she just graduated last weekend, so now she is on full on planning mood. Figuring out who’s coming, and all. We want a small wedding.”

“Are you helping with planning?” James asked.

Harry laughed, shaking his head, “no, no, it’s all her. I’m not even allowed to pick my tux cause she doesn’t want it to be crazy, I did though get to pick the napkins,” Harry laughed, “so when you go James, make sure to tell her the napkins are the best thing.”

“Out of the whole wedding, the ceremony, you want me to tell the bride that the best thing is the napkins?” James asked.

there’s no denying that characters like riza and lan fan have some awesome, badass moments. what’s incredibly frustrating is that these moments tend to only occur when the narrative stakes are very low, and when they aren’t, these women – however strong they are otherwise – are forced into the victim role, helpless and having to be saved by their respective male companions. riza and lan fan each tend to affect the plot in significant ways by being brutalized and victimized rather than being independent, clever, or otherwise “awesome” or “badass,” and this is why i’m not the only one to suggest that their strength feels falsified. (see zudilio’s amazing post here for more info, because it’s a similar topic and it’s just an amazing post. 10/10.)

lan fan, for instance. her first appearance tries to establish her as a formidable fighter, able to go toe-to-toe with ed despite no alchemical ability and holding her own pretty well until he exploits her achilles’ heel: her defensiveness of ling. however, her next big scene subverts this image of lan fan the skilled fighter in a brutal fashion – she doesn’t get in a single hit versus wrath before he badly wounds her, leaving her to be carried around by ling (who, despite having just as much inexperience fighting homunculi and not being a trained guard, is able to fight wrath and gluttony together with the injured lan fan over his shoulder) until she severs her own arm so that ling can escape.

lan fan’s horrific maiming is what motivates ling to accept greed’s philosopher’s stone, stating that she lost the arm to get him this far and that he couldn’t face her if he refused. to be clear: this horrible injury is how lan fan advances the plot, by being is the catalyst for the birth of the second greed, which pushes the plot forward, not the fighting skills the fandom wants her to be known for.

riza gets it even worse in that her victimization advances the plot several times, not just once. first, her backstory, which involves her being tattooed without her consent so that roy can learn flame alchemy from her father. then, she’s made a hostage to keep roy in line, forcing roy to decide if he wants to continue fighting from the inside or go full-on rebel. and, of course, who could forget how her throat is cut in an attempt by the gold-toothed doctor to motivate roy to open the gate and become the fifth sacrifice?

riza’s and lan fan’s feats of badassery feel lackluster in comparison, because those moments, however awesome, don’t impact the plot to the same degree – they’re superfluous, icing on the cake. you could easily exclude them and have a largely unchanged story, while their victimization, on the other hand, is necessary to move the story along. essentially, these women are only strong when it doesn’t matter; when the narrative stakes are high, they’re forced into positions of emotional or physical vulnerability, and men swoop in to save the day. (think roy bursting in to kill lust while riza’s sobbing and thinking he’s dead, or, again, ling fighting off two homunculi with lan fan over his shoulder despite having no reason to possess those kinds of fighting skills – i mean, he’s supposed to be this pampered prince, how is he a better fighter than his bodyguard lan fan?)

when their strength impacts the plot so little – just like winry’s automail career that supposedly keeps her from being a wife-in-waiting, which, narratively, she is – it ends up feeling so forced, you might even call it fake.

to be clear, this isn’t me hating on the characters themselves. i absolutely adore lan fan with all my heart, and i like riza and winry enough. my affection for these characters is what drives me to complain and rant about how the narrative treats them with such injustice. i love them enough to say emphatically that they deserve better.
