This is the second time I've read your Fullmetal Alchemist series, it has been and always will be my all time favourite FMA fanfiction! I can't put into words how amazing each story is (The drachman war is definitely my favourite) and I hope you do keep writing more! I live for this stuff!
I'm such a huge EdWin Shipper but you write so well that you completely converted me to Ed and Elysia for the sake of the story - it's just amazing.
I'm sure I would have said this already to you the first time I read it but once again thank you for such an amazing read! I have no doubt I'll revisit it again in the future!

Ahhh... another great story ... I love way you portray the FMA characters in all three stories... You make them grow naturally but they are still mantained as the characters we loved from the manga/anime...Bravo hope there more in the future : )

I think that most of the prologue is unnecessary. I know it's annoying when you leave the reader hanging and confused when you jump start the plot, but the whole history thing with Drachma just gets in the way of the basic story and the characters. Then with Xing. He did this. He thought that. I think it would sound better if you had gone right to the main deal, with the character developments and building on the crisis, the juicy part. If you needed to construct the setting, then you could've slipped it in some other couple sentences of the story. Or you could just make it nice and cryptic, and have the reader interpret the bad guy's plans. Bwah ha ha. :)

All done! *sniffles* I was going to miss this universe you created within FMA, but what's this about sequels? *eyes gleam* Hohohoho! I would especially enjoy reading about what happened in Xing.
Nice work here, really. I'm glad you didn't have Ed completely leave the military, I can see him going totally bonkers after a while if he didn't have something to keep him busy. Even if he is a teacher now. Are he and Al going to have a month trial period for potential students? There's a forest near Risenbool, right?

I must say, I have very much enjoyed reading all three of these stories. I look forward to updates with a passion, and I adore your writing style. I also LOVE how you portray Edward and how you write him and the other characters, with how they have changed in some ways, but remained the same as ever in other ways. Its a excellent series, and I sincerely hope you write both those stories you are considering, as I'd love both a sequel to this and one the Drachman War.

Two possible stories, eh? Why not write both? I love to read them!

I've left a review for your other two stories so I might as well finish the trilogy.
I have to admit that my opinion of this story is tainted by your far superior "Drachman War." So I apologize in advance for constantly comparing it to your previous story.
There was something far more charming and gritty about it that this story seemed to lack. I think in someways the exploration of the more esoteric features of alchemy were tiresome to read and overly complicated as a plot point, whereas in the Drachman War there was the overarching war that held everything. The motives of the war were simplistic in practice and in that simplicity the Drachman War thrived with various interesting sub-plots that were tied together well by the war.
In The Black Prince I found the plot slightly uninspired. The plot was far more conventional in the sense that there were clear heroes and clear villains. Unfortunately the Villains were lacking in terms of shock value and being plain sinister. I was bored by them to be honest. It felt like it was too easy. I didn't ever get the feeling that the bad guys could actually win.
Also I felt that the ending was a little to happy. I'm not saying the story has to be a tragedy but it felt like everything ended a little to perfectly. I know that they lost the Amestrian form of alchemy but it wasn't so huge a blow seeing as it took Ed only a couple chapters to get over. I'll be honest the ending would have been better if someone had died. I don't even care who. Maybe Havoc, or Mustang, or even Richard. It would have in my opinion enhanced the story.
I enjoyed the story regardless and will be glad to read any future stories you put out. This is really the only Fullmetal Alchemist series I've enjoyed. I really enjoyed reading this portrayal of Ed. Thank you for writing this and I wish you well.

Awesome job with this story! God, Edward...he always DID have horrible tastes.

Great ending to a great story! I loved it. I'm a little sad to see it end so soon, but I'm definitely looking forward to your next stories! :)
