"No, I rather don't think the TARDIS can do the happy birthday song while materializing," the Doctor says, sounding cross. "Well, she could, but it would be undignified. Well, not undignified, just sad. It would fill my hearts with melancholy."

"We wouldn't want that," Victor says.

And that's how, on the twenty-second of January, the TARDIS materialized in the middle of Ed's apartment (narrowly missing the coffee table), not playing happy birthday.

And Ed had been asleep when the TARDIS materialized, but the noise woke him up. It's a very distinctive sort of noise, and he's up like a shot and tugging on his clothes a split second later, hurrying out into the main area from his bedroom, hair still loose and out of its braid—for the moment. "She didn't..." he mutters at first. And then he gapes at the TARDIS as it materializes. "She did! HA!"

"No, I'm definitely Edward Elric," Ed replies, fighting back a laugh. "Clarence? Really?"

Then he tackles Victor with a tight hug. "Trip in the TARDIS! Best birthday present ever!" he tells her, grinning.

"It's Ed!" Ed corrects him immediately. He reaches back and deftly braids his hair, pulling a hair tie off of his left wrist to tie the braid off. "But, ja! Lassen wir gehen!" He wouldn't dare steal one of the Doctor's catchphrases, so he's going to say the same thing in German instead.

From: [personal profile] fmalchemist160
Ed grins and dashes inside, pausing for a moment to just take in the control room, spinning in a slow circle. "Danke shön," he answers. "Oh man, this is so cool! My roommate's boyfriend is going to be sick with envy! So's my roommate, but that's neither here nor there, really. Wow. So where're we going?" he asks. "Waitwaitwait, no, hold on. My second apprentice would kill me if she found out I was in a spaceship and didn't go to see something spacey. Before we go wherever we're going, mind if we stop to visit something just to... admire the view? Maybe... the Pleiades?"

((Bedtime))

Ed beams, staggers as ground shakes, and then grabs hold of another coral pillar, laughing. He just basks in the TARDIS noise for a bit. He starts to feel a little bit odd once they're actually in space, a bit... off-kilter, but he ignores the sensation. Right now, it's not terribly important. What's important is that he is going on an adventure in the TARDIS!

((Ed can't transmute in space. Alchemists get the energy for their transmutations from plate tectonics and geothermal energy. But he doesn't know that yet.))

From: [personal profile] fmalchemist160
Ed grins and puts his sunglasses on. He actually leans out of the TARDIS a bit. "Whoa, that's hot. This is so awesome... They're beautiful!" He continues to grin. "The Pleiades are my roommate's favourite astronomical object... we have a telescope on the balcony, she's been out there every night this winter looking at them. I've used that telescope a few times myself, looked at them too... and I thought they were beautiful from Earth... But to actually see them this close... It's amazing!"

He frowns a bit, brows knit, not able to ignore that off-kilter sensation any longer. "I feel a bit... I dunno, weird, though. Discombobulated. Like... something's missing, I'm cut off."

((That's something from the FMA manga... in the 2003 anime it was souls from an alternate reality, Earth. But I wanted Ed to be able to transmute even when he was in alternate realities, so I went with the source of energy from the manga—it's universal as long as he's within the gravitational influence of a planet that has plate tectonics, or any geothermal activity. He draws on it through his internal Gateway of Truth.))

From: [personal profile] fmalchemist160
"Babies, yeah, really young," Ed agrees. "And not going to live to be as old as the Sun, either. Problem with them burning hotter is they use up fuel faster." He blinks and shakes his head. "This is what happens when you have an astronomy nerd for a roommate and a former apprentice who has a Ph.D in Astrophysics."

He shakes his head. "No, that's not it... I'm not nauseous, I feel fine, physically, this is more... I dunno." He frowns more deeply, then leans back from the door a bit. "Hang on. I wanna try something real quick." He claps his hands together, then jerks his left hand over his right arm, intending to transmute the cover plate on his Automail into a blade—one of his signature transmutations.

Nothing happens.

Those striking golden eyes of his widen, and he tries again. Still nothing. "What the Hell?!" A third attempt, still turning up bupkiss. "Oh, great," he mutters. "That's what it is. I can't use Alchemy." Still, even being deprived of his power, he's trying to determine why. "I've been trying to figure out where Alchemists get the energy for their transmutations... we do have to obey conservation of energy, so it has to come from somewhere. The only thing I can think of that's different right now is... I'm in space. Not on a planet. Maybe the source of energy... is something you can only get on terrestrial planets." He considers for a moment. "Might be worth investigating while I've got the opportunity."

Then he grins and leans out to continue watching the open cluster of stars, staring for a bit. "Oh well! Still got something shiny to admire!" He looks back over at the Doctor. "Is there any way I might be able to get a picture of these? I have got to tell Sam about this when I see her again, and she'll have trouble believing me unless I can show her a photo!"

((Thank Hiromu Arakawa, it was her idea. =P))

Ed beams. "Vielen Danke! I have no idea how long it's gonna be 'til I see her again, but in the meantime... I can still show it to my roommate. She's just as much of an astronomy geek as Sam is..."

He looks back to Victor. "Alchemists evolved just like vanilla humans. And I don't think I've met any Alchemists native to gas giants, so we all evolved on terrestrial worlds. So Alchemists have to get the energy from somewhere... we probably evolved to get it from the nearest natural source, which would be the planet itself. Now if I could figure out what, specifically, it was... One small step for Edward Elric, one giant leap in the understanding of Alchemy!"

Ed steps further out of the TARDIS, so that he's floating in the micro-gravity of space, hooking his left leg around the door frame of the TARDIS so he doesn't float off. "This is so incredible! It bears repeating: Best. Birthday present. EVER!"

From: [personal profile] fmalchemist160
Ed grins, closing his eyes and just feeling the weightlessness for awhile. It's nice... he can't feel the weight of his Automail right now. It's heavy, being made of steel and chromium, and it normally doesn't bother him, but... out here, in space, it almost feels like he has a normal arm and leg again.

"If only most people on Earth didn't believe that Alchemy doesn't work," Ed says, opening his eyes again. He twists around and grabs hold of the TARDIS's doorframe with his arm, bringing himself back inside, stumbling a bit as he comes under gravity's influence again. "Then I could start teaching it at a school." He stares out at the Pleiades for awhile longer, then turns back to the interior of the TARDIS again, and asks, "So! Where are we going? Aside from here."

fmalchemist160: (Up to No Good)
From: [personal profile] fmalchemist160
Again with the Clarence thing. Good thing the Doctor didn't actually call him that out loud this time, or Ed might've gotten annoyed. He lets the Doctor spin him around, a lopsided smile on his face. Then he takes off the sunglasses the Doctor gave him and passes them back to him. "Never heard of them. But then again, my homeworld had barely got past Industrial Revolution-level technology when I left it. Not counting Automail, of course..." The sophistication of Automail compared to the rest of the technology in Amestris has always been a stark contrast. Then he lets out a snort of laughter at the cricket thing. "Scientists, huh? Sounds like my kind of place. Never heard of the 'green garbo theory', though. Care to explain that one?"

((Up late tonight, but heading to bed now. >.>))

fmalchemist160: (♠ Automail: Clenching Fist)
From: [personal profile] fmalchemist160
Ed looks lost. "Okay, yeah, outside my field of expertise. Not outside of Sam's, though..."

He looks over at Victor. "Automail is prosthetic technology. Last time I checked, it was used primarily to help injured soldiers who'd had to have a limb amputated be able to remain in the military and keep serving their country—give them the ability to walk again, if they'd lost a leg or legs, or to be able to hold a weapon again, if they'd lost an arm. Voluntary, of course; the Amestris military wasn't the most upstanding organization, but even they wouldn't force their soldiers to remain in service if they didn't want to. It's also used to help people who lost limbs in accidents, or for other reasons, of course... The Rockbells—Winry and her grandmother, Pinako—had more than a few customers who'd lost an arm or leg in an accident involving farming equipment.

"And, of course, some people get Automail because they actually want it, for some odd reason. That's primarily in Rush Valley, though. Which is kinda like the Automail engineer's Mecca." He shrugs. "Anyway, the technology is far in advance of the rest of what we've got, but for the most part, our primary form of science was Alchemy. We didn't focus on physics or astronomy or biology as much as the Tau'ri did." He pauses, blinks as he realizes that Victor might not know what 'Tau'ri' means, then adds, by way of explanation, "'Tau'ri' is the word most offworlders and aliens use to describe humans who were born on Earth. Same thing as calling someone from the United States an American; it's a way to describe a person's origins."

From: [personal profile] fmalchemist160
Ed blinks, then shrugs and lets a small, lopsided smile creep across his face. "See, that's the difference between Tau'ri and Amestrians. We never thought of those possibilities. We're so focused on Alchemy, we've neglected the other sciences."

Ed automatically loops his right arm around one of the coral pillars again when the VWORP VWORP starts up again. "Automail users do have to have their skeletons reinforced... I've got titanium and ceramic plating on most of the right side of my rib cage, my clavicle, scapula, a third of my left femur, and a bit of the left side of my pelvis. Automail limbs are already much stronger and more durable than ordinary human limbs. I don't know much about the engineering of it, though... you should definitely talk to Winry about those ideas."

Date: 2013-01-19 03:01 am (UTC)
fmalchemist160: (Oh SHIT)
From: [personal profile] fmalchemist160
Ed immediately tenses up at that news, removing his arm from around his pillar and sliding his leg back a bit, ready to leap into action. He's always been a fighter, and a bit of an adrenaline junkie. "Lovely... Should've expected that, though. I've always been a magnet for trouble." He looks over at the Doctor. "What's happening out there? What are they doing?"
