rxelyn: (gold sunset)
I finally caved and watched Full Metal Alchemist Brotherhood. AND THE ANGST AND DRAMA... *flails about in a mess*. Damn it, I knew it was going to be that sad and painful, but here I am again, voluntarily watching it and going on the same ride that I had taken a few years ago.

The first series had 51 episodes, and a different storyline from the original manga. I'm not sure how this one will turn out but I really hope there's a proper happy ending this time. I don't think I can handle it if all the terrible events continued to worsen and the Elric brothers don't get what they deserved in the end. D: 

I'm currently only on the 2nd episode and already... the angst... it can only get worse, but I don't think it will be as terrible as the original. I mean, the whole flashback to the past where Ed and Al broke the taboo on human transmuation and paid the price... it was already quite toned down as compared to the first series where I remembered I sort of cried... because I'm a inner wuss like that...

Oh well, there's always fanfiction... where we can all manipulate stuff to our own liking and I frankly for one am looking forward to reading meta posts by other more indepth researchers, haha.

In other news, have been overdosing on Torchwood fanfics... to the extent that I'm neglecting my literature assignment... as well as adding new memories to the Torchwood sections. To think that I was originally nosing around for Supernatural stuff instead, haha.

Also, internet has been ungodly SLOW today. Wtf, really. Even without my brother being home to eat up the bandwidth, I find that loading my email can take up to 5 minutes before it times out and I got to keep refreshing the bloody page. Gah.
