I have a doctorate in English literature and work in a library, which probably explains most of what you are about to read.
Please note that several drabbles formerly archived separately ("Ghosts," "The Sneeze" and "The Fly") can now be found in the sequence Chibi Drabbles.
FAQ: I have been asked why I write the name of Edward and Alphonse Elric's home town as "Riesenbuhl". The katakana Arakawa uses to represent this word are RI ZE N BUU RU. Since she frequently borrows names from western languages for her characters and settings, I find the transcription "Riesenbuhl" -- a real German place-name -- highly persuasive. (The Japanese vowel "I" approximates the sound of German "ie".)
