It's about time I reviewed this. I like how you've all taken the time to develop this story; the characters AND the plot. It's a lot of fun to see threads that you've started way back in previous chapters bear fruit later in the story. This kind of attention to detail is what seperates the professionals from the amateurs. If any of you three are planning on a career in writing, I'd say you've got a good shot.
Ahem. And now that we're back in Amestris, I'm waiting for the next chapter eagerly. It'll be fun to see what some of our favorite characters are doing on the -other- side of the Gate.
