Well. For the sake of brevity, I’ll just say that in this scene we learned that in Xing, immortality (perfection) and Gold (the perfect metal) are often represented alongside one another.

“In other words, an immortal person is called a ‘Golden Being.’“

“It comes from the man who brought Alchemy to Xing. The legend says he was an immortal with golden hair and eyes. And that’s where the term first originated!”

I FUCKING CALLED IT! I DID IT, I PREDICTED HOHENHEIM MADE ALKAHESTRY, FUCK YEAH! I DID A THING!

*pops champagne* PARTY TIME, LADS! WHOOP WHOOP! *throws confetti*

I’d like to think that when they’re older, they’re body types differ more like…since Al left to go train in Xing [mostly to study alchemy there???] and Ed had traveled then went home and started farm work [idiot farm kids] that, while Al is taller, Ed is…more muscle. Like 90% muscle. V buff. Al still kicks his ass at sparring but Ed can just sit on him or kick his ass in like…..FARM/RODEO STUFF…..;;;;;;

i love how Xing is like “Our alchemy uses the spirit of the world, the dragon’s pulse. We can read where these flows cut and escape, and we use that to our advantage to create long-distance transmutations and alkahestry.” while Amestris is like “WE USE THE GROUND BC IT IS STRONG
