Oh wait, this was supposed to be a fandom post.
Look forward to me writing a lot on Al/Mei after this, like I did with Ed/Ling after Chapter 51 (oh man it hurts to press the shift key). Because that's the way I am, I spend the month of waiting fangirling all over again. The vicious fandom cycle, oh noes.
Oh yeah, Ed/Ling is still love too. Actually, I think I like Ed+Ling as friends better than them being in a relationship, after reading some yaoi fics (some excellent, some alarmingly OOC). But anyway, I loved their interaction in Chapter 52 too. Best friends, I'm telling you. Also expect a more in depth reaction from me on the chapter (or maybe I'll just post it to hagaren_manga, which has 108 members now, omgwtf!!)
Some more cool fandom things that i haven't had the time to take note of yet:
HARRY POTTER VERSUS EDWARD ELRIC
The people on my flist (who haven't posted this already) must read it regardless of whether they're familiar with either character. You simply must.
And also, this:
No, I am not cutting it.
