  • Do not forget Michael Brown
  • Do not forget how the media dehumanized him and tried to justify his murder
  • Do not forget how peaceful protests were painted as savage riots
  • Do not forget police armed with military grade weapons terrorized and arrested black civilians
  • Do not forget Darren Wilson being awarded over $200,000 in fundraiser donations for murdering an unarmed black child
  • Do not forget that this system was not built to defend us, but to control us
  • Do not forget Ferguson

Just a casual reminder that when Winry was eleven, her two closest friends appeared at her doorstep in the rain - one no longer in possession of a human body, just an empty suit of armor where a child once was, on his knees, begging for help with a mouth that couldn’t move; the other unconscious, covered in blood, and not as whole as he used to be.

Just a casual reminder that Winry had to be strong enough to save her friend from dying, to stomach the blood, the gore, and the absolute horror she must have felt and try to save his life. To perform emergency surgery on someone she deeply cared about, someone way too small to be covered in so much blood. To realize that he very well may die, and it was her job to make sure that he wouldn’t.

Just a casual reminder that while those boys recovered, it was Winry who had to be their emotional support. Winry had to comfort them in whatever way would get through, to give them the strength to walk, the peace of mind and heart to move forward, and the knowledge that they were more the sum of their mistakes. Winry was the one who had to ensure that the boys wouldn’t spiral into a void of depression. Winry had to be their rock.

Just a casual reminder that Winry did all this at eleven.

What a coincidence to read this right now, as my sister just published a horribly heart wrenching fic of that night in Winry’s point of view… 


Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood
Episode 5- Rain of Sorrows
Ed has a nightmare





If you’re unemployed, it’s not because there isn’t any work.

Just look around: A housing shortage, crime, pollution; we need better schools and parks. Whatever our needs, they all require work. And as long as we have unsatisfied needs, there’s work to be done.

So ask yourself, what kind of world has work but no jobs? It’s a world where work is not related to satisfying our needs, a world where work is only related to satisfying the profit needs of business.

This country was not built by the huge corporations or government bureaucracies. It was built by people who work. And, it is working people who should control the work to be done. Yet, as long as employment is tied to somebody else’s profits, the work won’t get done.

Was expecting classist bullshit, got the exact opposite

This is so ubelievably important and I hate that I have to keep re-explaining it to people.

I was ready to be mad and then I was not hah

After I saw this picture, I got inspired. What an interesting idea, for Alphonse to sit down and give up because Ed disappeared. I don’t believe Al would ever do that, as he is the poster boy for hope. But it’s intriguing, and old suit of armor seemingly discarded sitting alone as the forest grows through it.

This is that practice I was talking about a while ago… gaah… but forest tutorials! What would I do without them?! 


Summary: ’“Dammit,” He growled, his voice low and menacing. “You can’t do this. You can’t take her! You’ve already taken too much, you bastard! JUST GIVE HER BACK TO ME!”’ In returning home from Central, Winry is not waiting for Edward the way he expects. Post-manga.

I think one of the main messages of Fullmetal Alchemist (specifically the manga and Brotherhood) is the importance of people.  The importance of leaning on others, and allowing others to lean on you.  The importance of meaningful relationships, and the effects they have on you. 

And if that isn’t the best message ever, then I don’t know what is.

Totally one of, if not THE best thing about this stupid show. These dumb kids and their ability to befriend ANYONE! Including former enemies. Second theme, I think, is the importance of hope. Never giving up, no matter how hard it gets. I would go in more depth with examples and such, but I don’t feel like it right now… sorry

“A lesson without pain is meaningless, that’s because you cannot gain something without sacrificing something else in return but once you’ve with stood that pain and over come it you will gain a heart that is stronger than everything else…”

Summary: Barring learning of her parents death, it was the worst night Winry had experienced in her young life. Immediately post the Elric’s failed transmutation, Winry uses her beginning skills to help treat and soothe both the brothers’ trauma, while barely…

I am not Mike Brown. I am white. I am middle class. I am female. I am small. I am not considered a threat. When police see me they see someone who looks like them. They see their mothers, their daughters, their sisters, themselves. I am not at risk of being shot by police for existing while black. I am not at risk of being shot while unarmed. I am not at risk of being shot while armed with nothing more than a BB gun. I am not at risk of being shot for reaching for my wallet. I am privileged.
But I am outraged. And if you aren’t outraged, then you aren’t paying attention. This is America in 2014. This is our reality. It’s so easy to get jaded and to ignore these atrocities, to act like this doesn’t affect us. It’s so easy to get apathetic. In the past it was the youth who protested. Where is the rage of the youth? Where is our rage?
Like I said, I am not Mike Brown. But I am outraged.

We watched ‘Miracle at Rush Valley’ and had some thoughts about Winry.

I’m too lazy to type them up, so here, have a recording!

Wow, so I (Katie) haven’t posted much on here in a while… so here’s some rough sketches that have been sitting on my computer. Enjoy!
