Speaking of Liore, I just remembered this page in the manga where it shows it spelled as Reole. So that got me thinking, there are so many spelling variations for spellings and names, for example: Lin/Ling, RanFan/LanFan, Mei/May, Ishval/Ishbal, etc. We should keep spellings consistent throughout the novel, right? So should we stick to Viz translations or other versions? Er, what do you guys think? tongue.gif

I think that's a great idea. There are even inconsistencies within Viz's translations...I personally don't really care which versions we use, but yes, we should be consistent. So would someone like to volunteer to make a "master list" of names to use?

It's never too late! Glad to have you with us ^^ be sure to check out the reserve and claim thread to request a chapter (if you already have one in mind) smile.gif

@DistantBlue: Thanks for compiling that long list smile.gif Also, don't forget to include place names too, like Resembool, Ishval, Reole, Dublith, etc. And if you want to be a proofreader, we can work together as editors and split up the work when people start submitting chapters biggrin.gif

@DistantBlue - I'll get right on that. I'd been thinking about doing that somewhere but hadn't gotten around to it haha.

Gah, I still can't get over how awesome this whole thing is. I feel like we should have a special snazzy website just for this project or something. Once the ball really gets rolling, I mean. biggrin.gif

*daydreams* projectfma.com...that has a nice ring to it... biggrin.gif biggrin.gif

Argh, problem.

I started writing my chapter in a third-person perspective of the characters over first-person. I realized that, tried to switch over to first person, and it was EPIC FAIL lawl. Is it okay for me to keep it in third person? It still is in a character's perspective, as in, I have their thoughts and emotions written between dialogue, it's just not directly the character saying things.

Oh yeah, definitely. I'm doing mine in third person and the finished chapters/chapters I've looked over have been in third person too.

Oh, really? What a relief. I thought I'd have to rewrite the whole thing. DX

BTW, I'm working on both the covers and the master list. The list will probably be finished by Sunday.

Lol, yeah you're cool. biggrin.gif I've always preferred third-person-past-tense, actually (with a few rare exceptions). All the good books out there are in third person. smile.gif First person just sounds too...I dunno...amateurish?

Anyway, nowadays I can never read something in first person without thinking of Twilight... dry.gif (No offense to any Twilighters, hehe.) innocent.gif

Yeah, I usually prefer it also, although there are some great first person works out there. It depends on the voice and whether or not I like the character who's perspective it is XD

And @DistantBlue - that sounds great! Thanks again for doing that part. Take as much time as you need.

Lol, getting all professional now, are we? wink.gif I think once we start actually posting chapters and volumes, we can also promote this on ff.net and see if people over there want to help. I don't know if it'll get big enough for a website though XD

About the first/third person thing, third person seems more popular and easier to read. You guys know the difference between omniscient and limited, right? Limited is like Harry Potter, where the author only knows what's happening inside Harry's head, and omniscient knows everyone's thoughts. For FMA...I don't know which is better, I guess it depends on the specific chapter.
