So I wanted to wait two days to get this one done, since to me it seems a bit redundant, as does a few of the posts in this challenge but hey, I didn’t make it up. Rather than cover two of the same topic back to back, we are going to mash them up into one slightly larger than normal post. So for today’s post we are going to dive back into the land of Fullmetal Alchemist: Bortherhood and talk about the scene that shocked us and took us to school in the feels department. Now, we all may guess as to which scene, plus character, we are leading on about. Definitely a fan favorite, Maes Hughes. His death wasn’t at all expected. After all, he was a fighter who swore to keep on trucking day in and day out. He had his family to protect after all and when confronted with the cold truth about his country and then the even more dangerous homunculus. His death came as a message as to why one should not meddle with affairs and truths larger than them selves.
What hit viewers the most was how loving he was. He was annoying but he cared. He deeply and most sincerely cared about everyone. He always meddled in the business of others and wouldn’t distract himself from what he was currently doing. It would get him into trouble but, he never looked the other way. His wife knew this, which was one of the reasons why she married him in the first place. Maes always but others first, including the needs of his family. He loved them like no other person could. Everyone either liked or hated his gushing over his family. With his passing, it served as a heartbreaking moment. Especially for his young daughter. The feelings have no words to express how people felt except for his one dear friend, Roy Mustang, ” It’s a terrible day for rain.”
