The Stone's mine!"
    Edward Elric would destroy the Harry Potter of the first book.
    Yeah, probably.

    I think they might be more evenly-matched in later books, though.
    For sure, especially if Harry was using the Elder Wand.

    I like that we are actually having this discussion.

    Anyway, I'm moving this to a new post: is it pretentious if I'm American and refer to that book by its British title? I've just never understood that publishing decision. Do British kids get history-of-science classes in elementary school or something, since that's the only place you'd likely learn about outdated pseudoscientific stuff like alchemy? (Well, when I was in college I learned about homunculi in a history/women's studies class on the history of sexuality aka BEST CLASS EVER but that's beside the point.)

    Hi, I'm Rose. I love music, alcohol, pointless Internet debates and being a snob about my choices in entertainment. I write a lot. You can read some of my writing at Autostraddle.com, the best site for LBTQ women on the Internet, where I am a staff writer. Or the funhouse that is my tumblr. I also write music sometimes, and post the better fruits of my labors on my SoundCloud.

    I don't know why they made the change. It's kind of like how they changed all of the early Beatles albums when they were released in America.

    I learned all about homunculi and their various summoning methods from wikipedia.
    That's nice.

    Well there was some "logic" in that the Brits had a head-start on the Beatles releasing albums there a year earlier, so they wanted to rush as much of it out in the States as possible when they first got popular here. But it didn't explain why the madness continued for a couple more years after that (basically until Sgt. Pepper, the first one that was the same IIRC).

    I learned all about homunculi and their various summoning methods from wikipedia.
    Yeah, I learned a lot about it there, too. But I just think it's funny that homunculi have become throughout literary history, either this menacing thing or this metaphor for how humans shouldn't play God or whatever, when really, the whole idea behind them came from the fact that medieval alchemists didn't know how is babby formed.

    I'm trying to decide whether to call this group of characters in my novel homunculi - I mean, it fits in terms of how they were created, and they're basically the most advanced of a line that originally started as artificial humans being created in test tubes. But I'm worried this screams "guess which anime I've been watching lately?" especially since one of the characters can shapeshift (but is nothing like Envy in any other way). And the other option that makes sense for these characters, calling them chimeras (because they're a blend of humans and super-human aliens), is just as bad, really.

    Do you haze wizard friends? Are your wizard friends great wizards, or are they more like you?

    Yeah, so maybe I should re-post that novel question in the Writer's Workshop.

    I'm just really worried about this. I know it's common for young writers to be besotted by our influences (as John Scalzi puts it), but I don't just want to be that, it want it to be good.
