lol I totally forgot this, I thought I was being so clever XD
Stiffly at first, then with growing eagerness, Al returned to his brother’s bedside and sat back down. Almost as an afterthought he remembered the book, opened it, and sat staring at the first page blankly.
It was the first day of summer, and the hot sun beat down on the back of her neck as she headed towards the fields. […]
Encouraged, Al took upon himself to continue reading, as the heroine ran away from home with a stranger she had fallen in love with, swearing to follow him to the ends of the world if necessary. Said stranger led a rather dangerous lifestyle, and soon enough was being pursued by several different people, all of whom apparently wanted a piece of him. Al found it silly, but oddly engaging, and certainly a distraction enough.
Around page two hundred, when the man was captured and put to trial for a crime he hadn’t committed and the heroine was trying in vain to rescue him, Al was suddenly jerked out of the story.
because it’s the plot of the fic gettit it was like foreshadowing gettit
so I wanted to work on more Mirrorworld, but realized I’m a bit fuzzy on a few details, and decided to reread from when Al brings Ed through.
Holy three hundred pages, Batman O_o
I have a question about Mirrorworld, like the older chapters, not the one you're typing ~///~. You know the part where Russel, um, finds Ed and Alfons at an awkward moment? Do you think that Russel knows that they're together, or like um? I DON'T KNOW I'M SORRY THIS IS SO HARD TO TYPE i dont know how to ask this okay but does Russel know or is he assuming? OH AND DID HE TELL THEIR OTHER FRIENDS?
Well, Russel can’t really know for sure, because he doesn’t have any proof. He did, however, leave the house incredibly suspicious.
Actually, at the planning stage of the story, I had originally intended to incorporate them dealing with the tail end/aftermath of the great influenza epidemic that hit at the end of WWI. I believe that I was going to have Russel die of influenza (and never having told anybody of his suspicions). But there was so much going on in the story already that it didn’t really need yet another mini-plot, and when I realized that I could bring them through the Gate already, I saw no reason to incorporate it. (Besides, in terms of timeline, it’s a wee bit late for the epidemic to really have still been raging).
So Russel gets to survive! In addition, I don’t think he ever told anybody. When Ed and Alfons disappeared, everybody assumed that they had died in the explosion of the warehouse, and at that point Russel didn’t want to speak ill of the dead, especially when all he had was one vague impression to go on.
I hope that answers it?
(I want to thank all the anons [or same anon?] for the questions! it’s super fun to answer X3)
Just wondering... Are you going to finish Mirrorworld?
Yes, I am quite definitely going to finish Mirrorworld. It will take me time, and it’s not as easy for me to write these days as it used to be, and RL demands a lot of attention.
But I’m slowly working my way through it, and you will definitely see it ended :)
I just hope it doesn’t take too long orz sorry I’m so faily about it
and sorry it’s so faily T^T I just can’t draw these days who wanted Russel finding Ed and Alfons at an awkward moment.
Okay all you guys who asked for pics and think my drawing style is cute and stuff….
All the pics I’ve uploaded until now? They’re old drawings. From like 2+ years ago. I no longer draw like that…. like, at all….
So now that I’ll be doing new sketches, they’re probably going to reflect my current style. I hope you guys aren’t disappointed!
They will probably be looking more along the lines of this.
I can’t draw anime anymore huuuuu
i literally can’t see ed with anyone but alfons after mirrorworld
omg UPDATE PLS IM DYING
Chapter 43 is at 4k. I’m doing my best…. :(
for heiderichsass, who wanted Ed with mostly-dead Alfons (chapter 30!)
I hope it’s okay that I drew them floating in the array… this is actually a touch-up of something I drew ages ago, because I loved that scene so much :)
Thanks to everybody who made requests! I’ll do my best to get to all of them as soon as I can~
This was a birthday present for my then-beta, who asked for a manga page based on one of her favorite scenes from Mirrorworld.
It was actually super fun to draw!
Actually, since I’m currently practicing drawing comics and stuff… If anybody wants to tell me their favorite Mirrorworld scene, I’ll draw you a little comic of it! :)
heck, it’ll be a lot prettier than this, because I drew this like 3 years ago
(givin’ my new askbox a whirl~)
