HAPPY FMA DAY!!...a month late. xD (You can blame that on my stupid college classes getting in the way of my precious Sony Vegas time...)

Anyway, this AMV is pretty special to me. It spells out a lot of my own story as well as Ed's, so there's a lot of symbolism and meaning in it. I hope you like it!

You Don't Own Me

I found Fullmetal Alchemist around three or four years ago, during a very dark time in my life. It's a bit personal so I won't go into detail, but I will say that I felt a very strong connection to Edward Elric. His guilt was my guilt. His sin was my sin. I didn't have to imagine what he was going through because I already knew his pain. And somehow, following his journey and cheering him and Al on made my own burdens a little easier to bear.

At first I wasn't completely aware of it; but now that I've looked back, it's incredible to see so much of my own story reflected in this series -- and this scarred, strong, courageous, compassionate (and vertically challenged) main protagonist. =P I really wanted this video to shine the spotlight on all that. I wanted to highlight Ed's brokenness and struggles, both external and internal, and how he pushes through them and finds strength and healing in the people he loves.

Just like I have. =)

LYRICS:

Dear pain, oh, it's been a long time
Remember when you were holding me tight
I would stay awake with you all night
Dear shame, I was safe in your arms
You were there when it all fell apart
I would get so lost in your beautiful lies

I let you go
But you're still chasing

Go ahead, you're never gonna take me
You can bend, but you're never gonna break me
I was yours; I'm not yours anymore
Oh, you don't own me

Dear hate, I know you're not far
You would wait at the door of my heart
I was amazed at the passion in your cries
Dear anger, you make me so high
You were faithful to show up on time
Such a flame that was burning in your eyes

I let you go
But you're still chasing

Go ahead, you're never gonna take me
You can bend, but you're never gonna break me
I was yours; I'm not yours anymore
Oh, you don't own me
Go ahead, put a target on my forehead
You can fire, but you got no bullets
I was yours; I'm not yours anymore
Oh, you don't own me

You tempted me to look back
But everything that we had together was a lie

Go ahead, you're never gonna take me
You can bend, but you're never gonna break me
I was yours; I'm not yours anymore
Oh, you don't own me
Go ahead, put a target on my forehead
You can fire, but you got no bullets
I was yours; I'm not yours anymore
Oh, you don't own me


--------------------

Dear pain, it's been a long time.
Remember when you were holding me tight?
I would stay awake with you all night...

@ Rainshine - ZOMG I LOVE YOU TOO. =DDD LET US GLOMP IN SLOW MOTION. *GLOOOOMMMMP* D'awww, thank you so much. I'm happy you enjoyed it so much and that the emotion came through well. I'm always happy when one of my videos (or any of my creations) becomes more than "just a video" to someone. It means I've done my job as an artist and storyteller. And that feels great. *warmfuzzies* smile.gif

@ Tombow - Oh wow, thank you for that high praise! I'm honored! I did put a lot of love into this, so I'm glad it shows. And I'm really glad you think it flows well; that was something I was worried about. *whews* Thank you for watching and taking time to comment on it! Feedback is what keeps me going! biggrin.gif
