I feel the most important things this episode taught me were
1) Al is the most adorable person to exist
(I really should have guessed, since he managed to be adorable as a terrifying suit of armor, which takes talent)
2) His voice was not high pitched because he hadn’t hit puberty yet. It is always going to be like that. Always. He is always going to sound like an adorable kitten. but that’s okay, anyone who makes fun of him will either be shot down with one of those DISSAPROVING LOOKS or punched in the face by Ed and Winry and he’ll be like “omg you guys always tell people off before I get a chance toooooo omg”.
(And now I am reminded of that time Al was possessed and Ed’s first reaction was “OMG AL IS THIS PUBERTY” and it was like…omg, Ed, you’re ridic. I bet the thought of Al hitting puberty kept him up at night like “OMG HE WILL HAVE WEIRD FEELINGS AND WHAT IF HE GETS ALL ANGSTY AND THEN I HAVE TO BE THE REASONABLE ONE BECAUSE PUBERRRRTY I COULD NOT HANDLE THAT. Edorable. That is my new word to describe Ed. ALDORABLE FOR AL.)
