oh lord, my inner fan girl is screaming. wrath does love his wife. i knew i wasn’t tripping, when ran fan asked him if there was anyone he loved. personally, i think the single, most wrathful soul that overtook bradley’s body was his own, especially when he started dogging on religion (the sunlight glinting of the sword - talk about divine intervention, lmao).
it made me think that he hated what happened to him. everyone’s favorite homunculus is envy and/or greed, but i freaking LOVE wrath! i think he’s my favorite character, even though he’s one of the main antagonists. urgh! i gotta watch this show again!
also, so many people rag on the english dub for brotherhood, but to me, it’s really freaking good! i don’t usually like very many english dubs for anime, but dragonball z kai and fullmetal alchemist brotherhood are probably my two favorite english dubs for anime ever.
babes cursed by destiny
My younger sister (turtlebunbuns) and I agreed last night that while we both like nearly all of the main couples Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood has to offer (EdWinry, RoyRiza, AlMei, etc.), the only couple we both truly care for is TrishaHohenheim, lmao. Not that we dislike any of them, but they’re couples we equally enjoy romantically and platonically, even if one is canon.
Oh, believe me, I still love King and Mrs. Bradley - I’m hopeless aren’t I, thinking that they’re not entirely one-sided - but lately I haven’t been able to get those two lovebirds out of my head.
It’s a real shame that they’re so underrated in this fandom (mostly, I see, because a LOT of people keep “mistaking” canonical Van Hohenheim for that jerkface Hohenheim of Light fella from FMA 03, and that’s just not cool at all). Trisha had so many opportunities to leave him, but she had faith in him (and holy cheese wheels, even after DEATH, she waited for him in the afterlife, and he came and it was ADORABLE, so like…), and how could anyone NOT see how in love Hohenheim was - IS - with her!? You’d have to be blind (or just purposefully ignorant) to not see that she (and their sons) were - ARE - his WORLD, even if he had a rather idiotic way of portraying such sometimes. He’s had CENTURIES to care about other people’s opinions of him, but it’s clear he only REALLY cares about what his family has to say. How many people actually own up to the crappy decisions and choices they’ve made and APOLOGIZE, while also making amends by TRYING to right their wrongs (when Ed cried and called him father/dad, it touched my soul to see that he does still CARE, even if he rightfully harbors some ill feelings towards him)? He shed so many TEARS over what he has and had (I honestly think he cried the MOST throughout the series), and like I repeated in one of my squealing posts about him earlier, he doesn’t get nearly enough credit for the GOOD he’s done throughout the series, since most tend to focus on ONLY the fact that he deserted his family (while also completely ignoring WHY he did what he did, even if it doesn’t necessarily justify anything - he’s not Son Goku, alright, whom I love with all my heart, mind, body, and soul). Still trying to figure out why he’s a part of the Bad Dad Trio, when there’s so many WORSE fathers in shounen till it’s not even funny (are we completely forgetting Shou Tucker, who freaking turned his DAUGHTER into a chimera, and thought it an ACCOMPLISHMENT, something Hohenheim would NEVER do). But that’s neither here nor there.
TrishaHohenheim is adorable (and too angtsy, man)! She loves him dearly, and he very OBVIOUSLY loves her, and man, how both my sister and I WISH they’d get more love. Why do we always end up shipping the most underrated couples in shounen? We’re making plans to read the manga soon (since we watched the anime first), and I don’t think our feelings for them will falter in the least bit. Talk about an OTP, huh? Oh, how we SWOON, lmbo.

i don’t trust people who hate on a female character but don’t say jack shit about the male writer who wrote her background, personality, motivation, and relationship with other characters
or people who shit on female character for being unpleasant and hard to get along with but baby the male character with the same personality because awww he’s so misunderstood and needs a hug~~~

I compiled most of the writing websites I’ve mentioned on my blog into one post. I find a lot of these sites useful, so hopefully they can help you out!
Imagination Prompt Generator: This give you a one-sentence writing prompt that will help you come up with ideas. I think it also allows you to set a ten minute timer for each prompt.
Wridea: I really like this site because you can write down simple ideas that you can organize later and put into a bigger project. You can share these ideas or the site will help you randomly match ideas. It’s great for brainstorming and building a fully formed outline.
List of Unusual Words — Here’s a site you can browse through that gives you a list of unusual words for every letting in the alphabet. If you’re looking to switch up your vocab, or looking to develop a way a character speaks, this is a good reference.
Picometer — Here’s a writing progress meter that can be embedded on your site or blog. There’s also the Writertopia meter that shows word count/current mood.
Cut Up Machine: This website takes whatever words you typed or pasted into the box and rearranges your sentences. It’s not practical for writing a novel, but it might help with poetry OR coming up with ideas. Experiment with it and see what you can come up with.
Orion’s Arm: This is a great website to use if you want to research worldbuilding or if you have science questions. There are tons of resources you can use.
Word Frequency Counter: If you’re finding that you’re using the same words over and over again, this website should help. You’ll be able to count the frequency usage of each word in your text. This should help you switch up the words you’re using and understand where the problem might be.
Phrase Frequency Counter: This is same site explained above, but it counts the phrases you’re using.
My Writing Nook: This allows you to write or jot down ideas wherever you are. You don’t need to have your laptop in order to access it, so it might help you during this time. You can write as long as you have your phone.
Writer: The Internet Typewriter - This site lets you write, save, share, and/or convert your writing online. I tried it out and it’s pretty cool. It saves for you and is a great way to brainstorm or plan out some ideas.
The Forge - The Forge is a fantasy, creature, spell, and location name generator. It’s awesome.
One Word: This site gives you one word to write about for 60 seconds. This should help you get started with your own writing and will work as a writing prompt to get you warmed up. It’s a great way to get yourself motivated.
Confusing Words: On this site you can search through confusing words that often stump many writers. It’s not a huge reference, but it should help you with some writing/grammar issues.
Cliché Finder: This site allows you to enter parts of your writing and it will search for clichés. If you find that you’re using the same phrases over and over again, this will help a lot. I haven’t messed around with it too much, but it looks useful.
Hand Written Fonts: If you’re looking for great hand written fonts, this is a great reference. All of them are pretty awesome.
Tip of My Tongue — you know when you’re trying to think of a specific word, but you just can’t remember what it is? This site will help you narrow down your thoughts and find that word you’ve been looking for. It can be extremely frustrating when you have to stop writing because you get a stuck on a word, so this should help cut that down.
I’ve been sitting here for the better part of 2-3 hours, staring at a near-blank page containing the King/Mrs. Bradley pairing for Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood and some vague summary about how he asked her out after she slapped him in the face, and I’ve yet to write anything decent, unless you count writing a sentence, deleting it, re-writing it, and deleting it again, only to sit like an idiot and listen to the same soundtrack pouring from my headphones ten times over.
I’m getting so freaking frustrated! Why is inspiration so fickle?
"I’ll catch you on the toilet," inspiration mutters, pulling the covers back over its head to catch some undeserved Zs.
"Hey, I know you have work and all, but it’s 2AM, and I have this really awesome idea, so if you could just ignore your pleasant dream and pay attention to me, that’d be really cool. Just sayin’,” says a wide-awake inspiration.
"You seem busy with your job, but five minutes is all it’ll take… If you’ll just grab that sticky note near your desktop and scribble down this wicked idea, I’ll leave you alone to finish stamping these papers."
Like, holy cows in a bucket! Why does inspiration come at the wrong time, in the wrong place, and when you actually sit down to flesh that killer idea out, it just… leaves? ARGH!
