Chapter 15: Fullmetal Heart


Page 2:
Al: “I never asked...” “...for this damn body!!”
--------------------------
Ed: “I...” “I’m sorry, Al.”


Page 3:
Ed: “...You’re right. It’s my fault that all of this happened.” “That’s why I want to get you back to normal as soon as possible.”
--------------------------
Al:”Is there really any guarantee that we can get our original bodies back?”
--------------------------
Ed: ”I’ll get you back to normal. You’ve just gotta believe me!”
Al: “’Believe’ you!?
--------------------------
Al: “What am I supposed to believe in this empty shell of a body!!?”
--------------------------
Al: “According to alchemic theory, human beings are composed of a physical body, mind and soul!” “But has anyone ever b]verified[/b] that in an experiment!?”
Maria: “?”
Denny: “?”


Page 4:
Al: “Memories are nothing but data, when you really think about it. It should be possible to artificially construct them.”
Ed: “What are you saying, Al...?”
--------------------------
Al: “You told me once that there was something that you were afraid to tell me.”
Winry: “?”
--------------------------
Al: “Maybe what you wanted to tell me was that my soul and my memories are all fake and that they were created artificially.”
--------------------------
Al: “Well, ‘Big brother’? Can you prove that a person named Alphonse Elric really existed!?”
--------------------------
Al: “Isn’t it possible that Winry, Granny and everyone else is lying to me!!?” “So, ‘Big brother’, what do you have to say to that!!?”


Page 5:
SFX: SLAM

--------------------------
Winry: “The thing that Ed was too afraid to talk to you about...
--------------------------
Winry: “Was whether you blame him for what happened!!


Page 9:
Ed: “It’s all my fault that Al got stuck with that body...” “He can’t eat, he can’t sleep... he can’t even feel pain...”
SFX: UFF
--------------------------
Ed: “He probably blames me for what happened!”
SFX: HFF HFF
--------------------------
Winry: “You know he doesn’t!”
Pinako: “Al isn’t the type of guy to blame you for that. Why don’t you just ask him?”
--------------------------
Ed: “I’m afraid...” “I’m too afraid to ask him...”
--------------------------
Ed: “That’s why I have to get him back to normal as soon as possible...”

--------------------------
Ed: “We sure have gotten in a lot of fight since we were little.”
--------------------------
Al: “Yeah.”
--------------------------
Ed: “Now that I think about it, it was always over something dumb.”
Al: “Like who gets the top bunk.”
Ed: “I lost that one.”


Page 16:
Al: “We fought all the time over snacks, didn’t we?
Ed: Yeah, I don’t remember ever winning any of those, either.” “There was the time we fought over our toys...”
Al: “I won that one” “Remember that time when we were playing by the Rain river?”
Ed: “Of course I do. You threw me in!”
Al: “We fought during trainings at our teacher’s place, too.”
Ed: “That one was a draw because our teacher told us to ‘Shut up’ and proceeded to almost kill us both.” “And when I drew in your book.”
Al: “I definitely won that one.” “We also fought over who would be the one to marry Winry.”
Ed: “Huh!?” I don’t remember that!!”
Al: “I won that one, too, but we both got dumped.”
Ed: “Oh really?”


Page 17:
Ed: “So you really think all those memories are fake?”
--------------------------
Al: “...Sorry.”
--------------------------
Ed: “In East City, you told me that you would do [{]anything[/b] to get your original body back.” “Are you telling me that what you felt then was fake, too?”
--------------------------
Al: “...No, it wasn’t fake.”
--------------------------
Ed: “That’s right. We decided that the two of us would get our bodies back to normal no matter what it took.” “We can’t start doubting ourselves because of something this trivial.”
--------------------------
Ed: “Well...” “I’m gonna get better at fighting and make myself stronger on the inside, too!”
--------------------------
Ed: “And I’m even gonna try to drink milk... if I can...”
Al: “Ha ha”


Page 18:
Ed: “Okay!” “Let’s both get a lot stronger.”
SFX: KAKNG
--------------------------
Winry: “Mr. Hughes.”
--------------------------
Winry: “I guess there are some things that you have to say out loud to understand.”
--------------------------
Hughes: “I guess you’re right.
Ed: “Ow.”
Al: “You pushed yourself too hard.”


Page 19:
Ed: “So... I don’t remember anything that happened after this guy kicked me.”
--------------------------
Armstrong: “Human souls trapped in artificial bodies, used as gurads... ‘Human sacrifice’... allowing you to live... an individual named Envy... Meanwhile, we have Dr. Marcoh creating a Stone for use in the Eastern civil war...”
--------------------------
Armstrong: “The Ouroboros tattoo...” “...and a transmutation circle for this Philosopher’s Stone...”
--------------------------
Armstrong: “There are too many mysteries for this to be simply an experiment to produce the Stone.”
Hughes: “And the laboratory is a dead end because it’s been reduced to a pile of rubble.”
--------------------------
SFX: H~~M...


Page 20:
SFX: HMMM~~
--------------------------
Denny: “Whatever they’re discussing in there sounds really complicated.”

SFX: CLAK CLAK
Maria: “Yes, this is the-“
--------------------------
Hughes: “We might be able to find something if we go through the criminal records at the investigations division.”
--------------------------

into military command, Major Armstrong.”
--------------------------
Armstrong: “Huh!? That is... I mean...”
--------------------------
Armstrong: “How did you...?”
Bradley: “Don’t underestimate my information network, Major. And you, Edward Elric...”
--------------------------

Page 24:
Bradley: “What have we here...?”
--------------------------
Armstrong: “Uh... That’s...”
Bradley: “Hm... It’s a list of all the researchers who were involved with the Stone. You’ve done quite a job finding all these names.”
--------------------------
Bradley: “But you see, the whereabouts of all of these individuals are currently unknown.”
--------------------------
Armstrong: “...!
Bradley: “They disappeared a few days before the explosion at Laboratory #5.”
--------------------------
Bradley: “The enemy is always one step ahead of us.” “And presently, even with my vast information network, I don’t know our enemy’s motives... or the extent to which they have infiltrated the military.”


Page 25:
Hughes: “Sir... are you saying it could be dangerous to continue investigating this matter...?”
Bradley: “Yup.”
--------------------------
Bradley: “Lieutenant Colonel Hughes...” “Major Armstrong..” “Elric brothers...”
--------------------------
Bradley: “I have decided that you are all individuals whom I can trust.” “I am giving you this order for your own safety.”
--------------------------
Bradley: “I will not allow you to speak of this to anyone or stick your neck in this matter any further!!


Page 26:
Bradley: “You must be discreet in your actions and assume that the entire military is the enemy!”
--------------------------
Bradley: “However!”
--------------------------
Bradley: “When the time comes, I will call on you, so make sure that you are prepared.” Grin
