[Hey, community -- it's Al, and he's standing up! Granted, he has crutches, and his thighs are braced against the bed, but he's standing, under his own power.]

Guess what, community! I get to go home today! I have to come back every day for physical therapy, but no more hospital for me! I'm so happy.

I hope everyone else is having as great a day as I am.

Locked from Ed;  
Well... I guess everyone has figured this out already, but Winry isn't on the community any more, and neither is Ed. At least, not the Ed from my time. They're both fine! Please, nobody worry! They just can't access the community.

As for the new Ed... Please don't tell him what happens to us in our future. I'm working on a way to figure that out, but I think he should hear it from family. As close as we can get, anyway.

Thanks, community.

Community, help! What do you do on a date with a girl?

--Don't you say anything, Mr. Greed.

[Video/RL for Eris and Hohenheim]  
[It's just a quick snippet of video, set in Al's hospital room in Inaba. Unless Al has grown another head, there are two people stuffed into his narrow hospital bed. Al is curled against one rail, heavily bundled in blankets and propped up with pillows to shield his sensitive skin. Beside him, in a second cocoon of blankets, is another very pretty blond.

The door opens quietly, and a tall, unassuming man with his hands resting in his pockets peeks in. The video shorts out before showing his reaction to seeing his youngest son in bed with a girl.]

I don't like this virus. It isn't nice.

Stupid. If I weren't stuck in this stupid bed, people would listen to me. There's nothing wrong with my brain. Even if I'm stuck here I know what I'm talking about. I know what I want. Why does everyone think they know what's best for me? Why won't they listen?

[It's Al, looking, if possible, worse than he did when he first came back from the armor. But his eyes are open and he's focused on the camera, even if he does look exhausted and can barely speak.]

Hi, Community. I guess... I've been asleep for a while. But I'm awake now. Sorry if I made anyone worry.

You know how they tell you to talk to people in a coma because they can hear you? Let's just say I know lots of secrets now... [And he manages a (very weak) smile.]

[Video announcement!]  
 [Ed looks tired, and he's leaning against a non-descript wall. He smiles a little though, and pushes his bangs out of his eyes.]

Just so you guys know, Al is okay. Well not great or anything...

He's alive, and in Inaba if anyone wants to check on him or visit or whatever. He's allowed visitors in ten minute spurts...

Although you might want to wait until he wakes up maybe. He's asleep because of some medicines.

[He scratches his head a little. He could use a hair brush.]

Anyway. I thought you guys should know.

Naoto? Brother? Winry?

It's Al! I don't know where I am but I'm in Kefka -- that scary clown guy? -- I'm in his body, and he's in jail. I think that means he's in my body. Be careful!!

[Accidental video]  
It was a lovely evening, the stars were out and there was a nice breeze. Edward leaned against the railing of Winry's balcony, in a nice tank top. He'd healed up alright, well enough that he wasn't bandaged anymore. Al was on his mind, and a few other things. He looked out at the rolling hills, his eyes shadowed with thought.

Winry came up from the ground floor, her dress top speckled with water from washing the dinner dishes. She walked into her room, sighing softly, seeing the door to the balcony open, the curtains blowing in. The breeze helped cool off the second floor of the house, and Winry appreciated it. Peering through the door, she spotted a familiar figure and smiled. She stepped onto the balcony. "Hi, Ed."

"Hey Win." Edward gave her a smile and looked back out at the landscape. He still had a lot on his mind. "How's Al?"

"He's doing okay." Winry knew Ed would read this appropriately. Al's body and mind were both in shock, and reacting accordingly. He slept a lot, and ate a little bit every few hours, and sometimes woke up screaming.

He nodded and brushed his hand against her arm and sighed a little. Something was troubling him.

Cut for early-canon move. )

Ed and/or Winry will be responding to any comments.

[Video Post]  
[Anyone who hasn't been following the Elrics may think, at first, that this is Edward taking a video. But his face is rounder and there's still a certain softness to this boy that his brother has lost. His hair is long, hanging loose about his shoulders, though it's combed and clean unlike his last post. He's still far too skinny, propped up by pillows in a hospital bed. Al gives a small smile.]

Hi Community. Guess what? I get to go home to Risembool today!

[The smile grows wider, his gold eyes glowing.]

Uhm, it's Al. I know I haven't been around much, and I guess I look pretty different now, huh? I can't believe it's been almost a month! I've been sleeping a lot, I guess.

I hope everyone is doing well! I just wanted to let you all know that Brother and I are fine, and we're going home, too. So we'll be around more in the next few weeks.

What did I miss?

[The father, has vanished. People are quiet as they stand around, looking pitifully at Ed. Ed is crouched by Al's body, frowning at the shell of what the armor has become. He's murmuring to himself. He's looking a lot worse off than anyone who should be standing, but that is far from important now.]

Think, think, think...

[As far as Ed is concerned, there has to be a way out of it. Trying to draw inspiration from nothing, he looks around, seeing everyone watching him, Mei crying over Al...he bows his head again, looking at his hands. The returned hand is so pale, the fingers so long..there was atrophy and he'd pushed it over the edge for this battle. They'd earned their ending, they'd earned this.]

Think, think, think...

[Ed murmurs to himself as he stares hard at Al's body. Suddenly his shoulders tense and his eyes widen. He springs his feet and looked over the area.] Mei...step back a bit for me.

[The girl makes a surprised noise but she moves back. Edward takes two steps and grabs a stick before walking the rest of the way. Smiling to himself, he begins to draw an array on the ground.]

[More surprisingly is that Ling is the one who recognizes it first.] That's a human transmutation circle!

[Edward tosses the stick away from him and stands in the centre with his arms out, a true flair all his own. He smiles.] And now, for the Fullmetal Alchemist's final transmutation! [He brings his hands together with a solid clap and brings them down to the ground.

The video cuts out, but there is audio still... )

[Accidental Video, backdated to before the virus.]  
[This video begins with an explosion. When the dust and debris clears, Al is sitting up, his arms outstretched. Or rather -- His armor is. It's barely Al anymore. Just an empty shell.

With a crash, the armor falls backwards, showing that the bloodseal, while in tact, is dried and beginning to crumble. The entire front of his "body" has been ripped away, leaving it exposed.]


[A girl with two long black braids, dressed in the Xingian custom, kneels beside him. All around them, flames explode out of thin air and rubble flies toward some central target beyond the camera's view.]

Brother... run....

Mei, I need your help. Brother sacrificed his arm to pull my soul back to this world. It was equivalent exchange. Therefore, the opposite must be true.

Alphonse-sama, what are you saying?

Just make me a path. You can do it.

But Alphonse-sama, you'll--

There's no time. There's no...

Please. You're the only one who can help me.

[Al raises his hands in a slow clap.]

Al? What are you doing? No! Stop! Al--!

Brother... win.

[There's the unmistakable crackle of a transmutation, a scream of "KHAAAAAAAAAN" "NOOOOOOOOO", and, before the screen fades to white, Ed can be seen in the distance, both his arms whole and human. He doesn't hesitate for a second, turning on his doppleganger and going -- well, a little crazy. And then the screen goes blank.

Al's back at the gate, his brittle body still sitting there.]

Are you ready now?

Yes. All we can do is believe in our brother.

[His body smiles, and holds out a hand, just like before. This time, he reaches out and takes it. His body seems to disintegrate and blow away, even though there's no wind. Then it's just Al, back in his rightful body.]

[OOC: For once, Al has nothing but time to respond to comments.

May Mei

Video; RL for Eris  
[Thank goodness Al had been in Risembool during his five years in the future, because he woke up back in his own bed rather than just collapsing somewhere. It was good to know that in five years he'd be hale and healthy, but for now he was back in bed.

And there was something wrapped around his finger, and it itched horribly. He fought down tears and shifted to look at his hand.]

This virus...? Really? Mr. de Killer, it's not you again, is it?

[OOC: Just to clarify FMA cast Promised Day shennanigans, which should be wrapping up this week, those are all backdated to before the virus. So TECHNICALLY this isn't the first Human!Al post on the comm.]

Grabbag Virus - Future Time Skip [To go with Ed's Five Year in the Future]  

[Have a Winry, community, one with her hair in a loose ponytail, no earrings, and a very, very protruding stomach. Yes, she's pregnant. And she's sitting on a somewhat beat up sofa, with her swollen feet up on an ottoman. A book is open and resting on her stomach, and a little boy, with a mixture of her features and Ed's, is sitting next to her, looking like he's fighting the onslaught of a nap.]

[Winry reads out loud from the book.]

When connecting the nerves to an automail port, the automail surgeon must take care to - Oh!

[She stares down at her stomach, which is dancing under the book. The very clear image of a foot is pressed against the underside of her dress.]

Ed! Ed, the baby's kicking again!

[The room everyone is in is dark, and creepily full of eyes. The Father has been reduced to a large man's shape but very similar to Pride in that he's nothing but a black figure with eyes all over. Before him, crouched, is Izumi, Roy, May and Alphonse. Edward is standing in front of Pride.]

Protect May! I can handle him alone!
