| Luqualia chapter 1 . 7/28
Portraying real, human emotion through words is a very hard thing to do. It can also be hard for readers/fans to grasp, which is why successful tv shows and books tend to skim over the quiet moments, jumping from action to action. That's why I love this site; it gives fans the chance to express, and experience their favorite characters in very human-feeling settings and scenarios. I for one crave a good emotional build and climax. This story is an example of one of the rare cases in which someone successfully achieves a beautiful emotional build and resolution, and in my opinion, is one of the best FMA fanfics I have read. I don't generally post reviews, but this story was exceptional. It had great flow, was easy to read and visualize, and put the characters through a range of strong emotions without them being OOC. I have to say, this story is more satisfying than the movie it's based off of itself. This is exactly what I look for in movies and books, and where most disappoint, you delivered. I wish there was a "Favorite Squared" option!

Ugh, that was a great fanfic.
Elric brotherhood FTW-!
Gosh, I kept crying.
Their brotherly love for each other shines enormously I barely have time to breathe before I start bawling my eyes out again and again. Great fic, warm and touching.

That is one an example of a beautiful story. The plot, the characters, everything. Even your writing style was so detailed and precise. It was enjoyable and refreshing to read. Thank you for this story.

Sooooo cute :3 Al obviously needed some comfort... scratch that, they both did, after all the events that happened in the movie...I wanted to see more fluffiness but this makes up for it :) 3

This scene is now part of my headcanon. I so much prefer this to what the movie decided constituted as a reunion. Here we have two brothers, best friends closer than most siblings ever become, who have spent every day together for most of their lives, sacrificed all they had for the other, been cruelly separated between worlds for two years after a five-year period of being together but without the least physical contact, and are now reunited and finally able to spend their lives together. And some dingbat in production decides that a smile, shrug, and a nod is sufficient to show the depth of their relationship.
Needless to say, this fic provides much more of what I was looking for. They were both in-character, dialogue and situations were natural and flowed well, the only complaints I have are with misspelled words, and I love your stories. Never stop writing!

This is amazing! I don't know where to start listing off the greatness that is this fic. I love it! :D
May you never run out of ideas!

Brilliant. There are so many touching phrases in this piece I don't even know where to start.
Alphonse worrying that Alfons was a "better me"? That was heartbreaking. The brothers both had their fears and time alone with each other brought them to light because despite how long Ed and Al weren't together, they're close in a way I can't imagine being close with anyone and their secrets came out.
Ed, showing his vulnerabilities to the only person in the world he's willing to; Al, making him strong again.
"Do you hate me?" That line in the anime, as well as the similar scene in Brotherhood and the manga, will always break my heart. Ed has lived with that fear on his shoulders, weighing him down for years- and even though, in the anime, Al told him otherwise, in the manga and Brotherhood, Al never really reassured Ed, they just patched things up and renewed their determination to move forward.
And now I'm wondering if maybe that question still lingered.
WAHH, anyway, awesome fic. ;D Three left!

This is really awesome. Although, I didn't want Al to cut his hair. He looks cuter with long hair. In my opinion anyways.

I really like this fanfic (actually, I like all ur AL and Ed fanfics- GO BROTHERS!) i am surprised you don't have more reviews. Maybe you could write a buncha oneshots about al and ed as HUMANs.
| Psycho and Princess chapter 1 . 6/29/2011
How does this not have more reveiws? i mean seriously,this is a gorgeous fic and you need way more credit. well ,awsomely done.
i loved the whole Al-soul thing and i've thought that the perfect ending would be like that other brotherly story you have but this is like the sweet alternate ending that everyone should have. ive never really thought of Al being mentally 17 in a 12 year olds body,i like it. :3 . i would totally love that! myself anyways. but enough of me gabbering i completely loved it ! Great job (i also really love 'what heaing is' its it bad that i love the part where ed falls on al? haha it was cute)

This. is. beautiful.
...I want to start saying more, but all there is to say is that you portrayed the love that siblings share beautifully. It brought tears to my eyes. Well done.
