I'm so happy you made this! This was such a good story and I'm glad someone final thought about Winry! Usually on boards or in real life people say how good the ending was(including CoS), but they never really mention Winry and when I do then the usual response is "what about her?" Like seriously!? I hate how most people think so little about her 3 she's actually my favourite character. How many people have you heard say that?

I absolutely loved it. The ending was a kind of nostalgic happiness, though, rather than joy. But I still liked it; it was more real than the overly cliche endings that remind everyone of Mary-sues and other such unsavory things.
You're a taleted writer, but I had to note that the ending seemed a tad rushed: reuniting with Ed, marrying etc all in two chapters, then an epilogue. Though I am satisfied with the ending, I feel it was all kind of half-hearted and cobbled together. It would have been nicer had you fleashed it out as much as the rest of the story.
Oh well, I still give a four star rating!
Thanx for writing,

I never actually saw that OVA. I watched all the ones for Brotherhood, but not the original.
Anyway, the story was great. Not too long, which is certainly a plus in my book. All the longer stories I've started recently have gotten abandoned because I got distracted. Obviously the beginning was a bit unbelievable, but honestly, I can't see how you would get Winry to our world in a way that wasn't. So I'm not going to nitpick that.
I think I would have preferred a bit more "getting to know you again" with Ed and Winry when they met back up, because after three rather dramatic years apart, I think they would need that. But I like that Ed was acting off of a promise he made to himself at the beginning. I can see him doing that, whereas I don't think it would have made sense to me if he'd just come out with it after three years away from her.
I thought you did a really good job with Wendy and Eddie. That part of the story was very engaging, and while Wendy's death wasn't particularly emotional, it did make me a bit sad.
Overall, it was definitely good. Very nice job. ]

If i were Armstrong i would say something along the lines of "oh what a magnificently beautiful story!" you told a very well written and developed story that left me smiling thank you

actually you arn't too off with phantom of the opera. The musical is based off of a book that was written in the very early 1900's and i'm sure there would have been stage plays of it(though not like the webber one) so it's not really too far fetched.

The minute you mentioned the zeppelin accident, I immediately thought "awkard" just knowing exactly how that happened

I read the whole fanfiction andI loved it because everyone was in character,the trio didn't meet up immediately so this showed more individuality,and it's the most original postmovie edwin i've read so job.

I'd really like to think this is how the first fma anime series truly ended.

CUTE! A perfect story with a happy ending. LOVE IT!

I think I like that Kids OVA even more now. I was expecting more adventure once Ed, Noah, Al, and Winry joined together, but this was a nice ending that made me smile. Excellent job.
| Secret Symphony 7/6/10 . chapter 9
Ah, love this. It was jarring the see American slang and whatnot in early 1900's London, but by now I've adjusted to it.
I'm happy that you kept Winry as the lead-a strong, determined lead at that-and didn't dive into her reuniting with the Elric's right away. As much as I love those three together, it irks me when people forget that they're great characters in their own right.
Anyway, I love seeing Winry struggling with equal rights and excelling at acting! She's so strong here. I adored Eddie and Liza and Roy, and was upset when Wendy and James died. :( Poor Winry doesn't seem to have much luck with loved ones... hopefully that'll change.
And now Ed, Al, and Noah have entered with a plan. I'm eager to see where the plot's headed now.

I like this idea, especially since it stemed from that OVA. I'm looking forward to a great story!
