First of all I really appreciate your openness about God.
I'm a missionary, and in this day and age where the name of Jesus is considered profanity, the rare person who is not ashamed of their faith is very refreshing.
I actually have a Drabble fic based on the Rise of the guardians, and I had one whole chapter dedicated to the Easter Bunny telling Jack Frist about the crucifixion and the true meaning behind Easter. I got flamed for it pretty bad, but I don't mind.
I'm loving your story. The detail is fabulous, and the way you connect everyone's emotions to the main plot of the story in such smooth transitions, is truly to be admired.
I'm looking forward to your upcoming chapters

This chapter was...heart-shattering and yet heart warming. Not to mention the added dash of humor you threw it. I was really rooting for Ed, but I understand how difficult something like that would be. Being forced to go outside in freezing snow would be like being thrown into the deep end and not knowing how to swim.
I pray Al is having some luck with finding that cure. The sooner Ed can see and have the proof he needs that he's really back with friends the better off he'll be.

So I delayed in readin this you see.
Mainly because I forgot the password to my laptop. O_O' I dunno how, but I spontaneously remembered it.
I hate seeing Ed so upset. I hate seeing the Colonel so upset. I'm going to reach into their world and hug both of them.

Hey, RainFlame! I’m so sorry I haven’t reviewed in so long. I’m so glad that you’re well, and I hope you are having a great new year. : )
These last few chapters are fantastic, as always. The part in Roy’s bathroom, when Ed thinks that Roy is a hallucination, really hit me hard. On the one hand, I couldn’t help but smile because it was so nice to see that side of Ed again. It was oddly sweet and comforting to me to know that Ed did have "company" during his captivity. But on the other hand, it was so heart-rending and emotional because we all know that he was really just alone with his hallucinations. I hope that all made sense… Anyway, it was such a bittersweet, emotional, and powerful moment, and I liked the additional insights into Ed’s experiences.
I’m glad that Ed is beginning to feel more trustful of Roy now. He still has a long way to go, but at least he’s taken steps in the right direction with regards to his trust issues. And Roy’s phone conversation with Riza made me smile. I love Riza. And we all know she’s the first person Roy would turn to for advice in this situation. : ) Ed’s method of comforting Roy also made me smile. It was sweet and awkward and in-character. : )
It broke my heart to hear Ed describe his fear of losing his mind completely, and that he doesn’t know how much of himself is left. That was so, so sad. :’( It makes sense that he would react so emotionally to going outside, especially on a snowy day. He hasn’t left the house since he arrived, and he’s not going to lose his fear of going outside all at once. It’s going to take time.
I hope you are having a great day! :D This story is amazing!

Sorry for the late review!
This chapter just broke me. I could actually relate to Ed a little bit, and imagining being in his place just makes me want to cry. They act so much like actual humans that I just want to jump in the story and hug them.
You continue to break my feels every chapter, keep it up!

Those people won't be recognized after I'm done with them. Nobody, and I mean NOBODY, does that to Ed and gets away with it!
| sub.C chapter 19 . 2/25
When I was a child, I was afraid like hell when I had to see the dentist. Really really REALLY scared. I felt like I was dying. I would have done anything to avoid those appointments.
Later, when I was a bit older, I think the most scary experiences I made were... falling off your horse and getting real hurt and being totally shocked about that whole thing... and then, for all that, having to get back on that "killer horse's" back and doing the EXACT SAME thing again. Just without falling off this time. Also feels like dying. Cause you're freakin SURE you'll fall off again and that everything's gonna repeat :S. Was like I've never been closer to a heart attack.
So... yeah... dunno if those things are suitable comparisons, but it's all I have. And it's definitely not funny to fear for your life. "Exhausting" doesn't even get close to what it feels like... so... Ed... yup... ó.Ò

Yaaaayyyy! Do I sense some RoyxEd starting? :D I hope so! Can't wait for the next chapter! 3

Aww... Poor baby... At first I thought they were finally returning to some sense of normality, but now I see things are still going to be hard. At least Ed's starting to trust Roy a little more! Thanks for the update! Can't wait for the next one. :)

I liked this chapter and I'm beyond the point of feeling shame. That part about Ed having mostly black, thats me. My mom used to try to get me to wear other colors. I think the pushing drove me to where I am now, black and grey. But I'm okay with that. I always liked the dark, muted colors. I find beauty in very dark and twisted things. But I'm rambling. And I'm sorry for that. But what I'm not sorry for is checking the FMA archive. I've pretty much drifted away from fullmetal alchemist and gone to attack on titan but I still check to see if anything I like has been updated. Even if a part of me finds it tedious. But that part quickly shuts up when I see something like this so thats good. Anyway, yeah update soon. Because I still like this story.

:') beautiful. Just beautiful.

Plan? Psh, what's THAT? Who PLANS things? XD
I never plane out my stories very concrete - so I now have like 50 started. I have a complete solid story line for the newest and currently in progress one, but I have enough leeway for the story to still write itself, as all of my stuff does. *sniffs* it's beautiful. And like 60 chapters xP and yes, you made sense
I can't not love the realisticness of this story. It's just...it's EXACTLY how I think they'd react to this insanity. It's wondrous
