Okay, I know some of you are either wondering "What the heck is Project FMA?", "I already know this part! Why's it called a 'sneak peek', and why'd I waste my time reading it?"
or maybe even "What the heck is Fullmetal Alchemist??"
Project FMA is a collaborative effort by some of us on fullmetal-alchemist.com
to "novelize" the original Fullmetal Alchemist manga...in other words, taking the manga story and adapting it into a normal novel. Because, let's face it - it's an epic story, and it would make an AWESOME scifi novel.
It wouldn't be officially published, of course, and we wouldn't be selling it at all; it would just be posted online where people could read and enjoy it. What you just saw here is the Prologue for the "novel". And yes, I wrote it.
But I didn't make the signature banner; that lovely thing was made by Aribelle
, the wonderful gal who first got this project going.
Now here's where YOU come in - this project is still pretty small, and we need more people to pitch in. SO, if you consider yourself an ace in writing, or if you're good at proofreading and editing - and you like the sound of this project - please go here: [link]
Introduce yourself and let us know what you'd like to help out with! We could use all the help we can get!
Or, if you haven't read the original manga and simply feel interested in following the novelization, that's great too! What the point of writing it if no one's gonna read it?
I personally think this project is a great idea, because I LOVE the FMA manga and I'd love to introduce my family to it...but they don't like reading comic books or mangas. We're more of the bookworm type. So I think this is the perfect way to get them into the awesome, original story, as well as others like them. What do you think?
And if you liked this, I might post up a bigger sneak peek sometime later. We'll see how things turn out. In the mean time, check out the link and spread the word around!
