^ lol, she's like you in the way that she gets obsessed with people before knowing them and then she meets edward and he's short "I'M GONNA SUE YOU FOR HURTING A FAIR MAIDEN'S FEELINGS!" "Brother, what did you do to this girl?? -.-'" your life story!!
lol and then she ends up loving al. and and she over reacts even though she can solve situations easily, like, "ENVY YOU TRICKED ME, THIS IS THE WRONG WAY, WAHHHH!" and then she just beats up the monsters. easily. lol, so much like you.
sorry for the double post above, it was an accident.

Hello, fellow AlxMei fans!
Here is a shameless plug for the board's FMA festival! If anyone has any AlxMei/Al/Mei-related contributions to make for this year's FMA Fan Fun Festival, whether it be fanarts, fanfics, AMVs/MMVs, singing, cooking and craft works, feel free to take part! It's a celebration for our love for FMA and Alphonse and Mei are fantastic FMA characters; together (for those who ship them!) and as individuals. You can get more info on the festival activities in the FMA Fan Fun Festival thread. I thought I'd give it a mention just in case people would like to share their love of FMA, as a fan, through their favourite couple/characters! There are also other cool FMA activities to check out, too!

You know when first heard about this pairing I had no idea what to think of it. But after a while, and upon finishing Brotherhood, I've really grown to enjoy this pairing... and that enjoyment has now kinda turned into obsession over the pairing.

to be honest i never liked this pairing, al deserves love to but from someone who isnt annoying and more his age. isnt she like 8 and hes like almost 15. Thats like rape. isnt it?
She's definitely not 8. As far as I know, 8-year-old girls don't have developments in the chest area yet, which Mei seems to have in the manga. o.O' The least she could be would be 12 (considering a CHILD couldn't cross the desert with only a panda o.o), which is only a two year difference between her and Al.
And besides, even if she was younger, it wouldn't even matter anyway when they're adults. My parents are 7 years apart. And I'm pretty sure Hohenheim and Trisha, for example, have a significant amount of an age difference.
I think Al truly deserves love from someone who will love him unconditionally. Everyone's so focused on Ed, and Al needs someone who could appreciate HIM, so I'm glad Mei is there to fill that role. I find them to be super adorable. X3

^^Ditto! I personally like to think of Mei as a Mary Sue who grew up. In the beginning, she seems somewhat shallow and ditzy, fantasizing and chasing after the Elric brothers merely for their looks and charm (though don't get me wrong; I thought it was adorable and utterly hilarious. Mei is just too funny!) xD
But contrast that earlier attitude to the attitude she has by the end of the story: (Warning! Ending spoilers!) What's the first thing she does when Al comes back in his real body? Doe she cry because he isn't the hawt bishie she imagined? Does she turn away from his shriveled form in disappointment or disgust? No. She FREAKIN' GLOMPS HIM LIKE THERE'S NO TOMORROW. XD And that alone speaks volumes to me about how much she learned and matured throughout the story. She doesn't care what Al looks like anymore. She doesn't care if he's armor. She doesn't care if he's a walking skeleton. She just - wants - him. In whatever package he comes in. Safe, sound and whole.
Now THAT'S true love. None of her old fluffy fangirl fantasies could've held a candle to that, and now she's wise enough to know it.

^ Yep, yep, yep. I very much agree. I love the fact that she matured like that - it shows that she's not just some ditz who only likes Al for his prince-charmingness. x3 She likes him for HIM. I was so emotional at that scene. D:
