Title: Chapter 84 - In the Hunter's Shadow
SFX: Baaaaaaah Baaaaaah
Gerrod finishes iiiiin-
You got lazy, Gerrod!
Announcer: Will the next contestant come forward?
SFX, right to left: Chugachugachuga, Waaaa, Ahaha, Wah-, Wahaha
Someone: The roast lamb's ready!
Policeman: Boy, I wish I could go to the festival.
Woman: You'll get plenty of lamb to eat later, just keep doing your job.
Look, they're here.
SFX: Katunk katunk katunk
Police: Welcome, sir.
SFX: Katunk katunk katunk
Miles: We appreciate your cooperation.
Hmm...You're having a festival, I take it?
Small bubbles: Who're those guys? Police?
They're in the army!
Police: Yes sir, this is Resembool's famous "Spring Sheep Festival."
Miles: Well, I'm sorry we had to ruin the fun for you. We weren't planning to stop here, but the train's having a lot of problems.
Police: Should I call for a mechanic?
The faster we fix it, the faster you're all outta here!
Miles: No, that's okay.
We're headed for the Eastern HQ's training facility, we'll need to give it a thorough inspection.
Oh, right. Can I trouble you for one small favor?
Miles: We need to refill our water supply.
Police: Oh, go right ahead. Take as much as you need.
Solider: Bring out the tanks!
SFX: CLUNK CLUNK
SFX: Katang katang
SFX: Katang katang
SFX: Knock knock
Guy: The door's locked.
Guy 2: No one's home?
Guy 2: We're here, miss.
Winry: Thank you both!
Guy: Your front door's locked, though.
Winry: Today's the Spring Sheep Festival, Grandma and Den must still be there.
Winry: this way,
We can get in through the back door.
Guy: Is there somewhere you can hide?
Winry: Yes, we've got a huge basement room, I should be fine down there.
Guy: Wow, check out all the automail!
Winry: Don't touch those, please.
My Grandma will get mad.
Winry: Whew, I haven't been here in forever.
Ick, everything's covered in dust...
I'll have to clean up tomorrow.
Guy: Is someone in there?!
Guy 2: You okay, miss?!
Heinkel: Is someone in there?!
Darius: You okay, kid?!
Greed: What the hell is wrong with you people?
Den: YIPE YIPE YIPE!
Darius: Huh? You two are from Briggs-
Guy: You guys are Kimblee's men!
Oh, you know him?
Den: Waaannnh waaanh
All SFX: ARF ARF ARF
The 4 Bodyguards: Easy, easy! Just put the gun down.
what's going on here?
YOU put YOUR gun down!
It's a LONG story...
No, YOU put YOURS down FIRST!
Stop shouting, you'll blow our cover!
Someone shut that goddamned dog up!
All Ed's SFX: Chew chew chew
Winry: GET THE HELL OUT OF MY ROOM, NOW!
SFX: KAPOW, WHOOSH
Winry: Huuuh Haaah
Winry: I was so scared...
Ed: Y-yeah...I'm really sorry...
I'm glad you're safe, too-
Winry: Now exactly WHY were you hiding in MY room?
Ed: ...because it's the best place in the house...to watch for people trying to break in...
Pinako: What's all this, now? There's MORE of you filthy bums are dirtying up my house, now?
SFX: Klunk klunk
Pinako: ...Thank goodness, you're all right.
I'm sorry if I worried you.
Now who are THEY?!
guy: I'm very sorry for the disturbance, ma'am.
Guy 2: We're soldiers from Briggs, acting as Miss Winry's bodyguards
Ed: We've been hiding out in your basement for a little while.
Winry: Lin...something about you seems different.
I guess I never told you...
Greed: I'm Greed.
Nice to meetcha.
Winry: Oh...I see...
Greed: Yep, so now these three work for me.
Winry: Why did you come back here, though?
Hiding in Central would've been a lot easier.
Greed: Because I said so.
There's no way to tell where THEY have eyes in Central.
Plus, I've gotta make sure his automail's all tuned up.
Pinako: You'd better get to work, Winry.
You made all his latest stuff, I can't do the fine-tuning.
Winry: That's right...
Ed: So Reole's starting to prosper again.
That's good, I always wondered how they made out.
Ed: And Al?
Winry: He's working with Mr. Miles. They can plan much better with an Alchemist who knows about everything on the team.
Your father went to Central ahead of him.
He's in some slum called "Kanama," you should go see him and have him explain the situation.
...So do you know anything about this "Promised Day" stuff?
Ed: Yeah, Greed told me.
That day will be a chance for us to get our bodies back...and the day where Amestris might be obliterated.
SFX: Clink clink
Ed: ...Take Grandma and Den
and go hide in another country.
Winry: Are you SERIOUS?! What's the point of only telling your friends and family to run?!
Are you saying you can't stop all that from happening anymore?!
Ed: We CAN stop it, and we WILL! But there's that small chance-
Winry: There's no SMALL CHANCE! There's no NOTHING!
You have to stop those guys and protect our country!
And you and Al have to get your original bodies back!
I have to do whatever I can to help!
Ed: Geez, talk about simplifying things...
Winry: NOW what? You never give in that easily-
Ed: Oh my God, quit nagging me, woman!
That's a nice girl you got there.
Another form of greed.
Ed: When you get too greedy, it comes back and bites you in the ass.
SFX: wave wave
Ed: See this? I wanted to bring someone back from the dead, and this is what I ended up with.
Greed: Oh yeah?
Greed: "I want to see my dead friend," "I want money," " I want women, "I want to protect the world." All "wants."
The raw emotion is the same mo matter what the object of desire is.
There are no "types" when it comes to greed.
You humans always get all holier-than-thou when it comes to this stuff...I really don't get you.
Ed: It's called having integrity, you should try it sometime.
Thanks Winry, Grandma.
Pinako: You gonna be okay? The trains don't run at this hour.
Greed: We're all outsiders...It's easier for us to just slip back into the shadows.
Ed: And the "promised day" is almost here, we can't waste any time.
Winry: Make sure you listen to what your dad has to say, Ed.
Ed: Yeah, yeah. And you make sure to stay hidden.
I'll be back after all this "promised crap" is over.
So bake me an apple pie and keep it warm.
Winry: I will!!
Workers: Let's call it a day, boys!
Workers: See ya!
Toad: Man, what a long day.
Zanpano: Let's hit that old guy's place and get some dinner.
Toad: This sure is whipping my ass into shape, I tell ya what.
Zanpano: Yeah, you've dropped a ton of weight!
Yoki SFX: Wobble wobble
Toad: Should we really be doing this when the whole country's in danger?
Zanpano: Hey, Doc!
Marcoh: Oh, you're here. Sorry we took so long.
Toad: Took so long?! We've been walking all over the place looking for you!
We've gotta get moving before the sun sets!
Zanpano: I'll get our stuff from the apartment!
Toad: We're going to Central
to meet up with Ed and Al's father.
I'll explain on the way.
It's kinda weird, ain't it?
An Ishvalan and army soldiers working towards the same goal.
Zanpano: Yeah, I guess it is.
Toad: We were born and raised to "protect this great nation" and all that,
Zanpano: Then again, we're really just tagging along with a bunch of genius alchemists hoping to turn our bodies back to normal...we're here for ourselves, too.
Toad: True...but Scar rebelled against Amestris, and now he's working to save it, too.
Zanpano SFX: Right, right.
Scar: Let's get this straight.
I'm not here to SAVE Amestris.
I'm here to CHANGE it.
This country rejected the People of Ishvala, and I'm going to make it recognize them as humans again.
Teacher: You must become the change you wish to see in the world...
Marcoh: They weren't simply wandering aimlessly for all these months.
Marcoh: They're comrades, united in their intentions.
Grumman: Northern Soldiers are as stiff-looking as ever, I see.
Horseman: My apologies.
They were trained under the previous commander, Major General Armstrong.
SFX: clop clop clop
Your Eastern soldiers all look to be in top shape, as well.
My experience in Ishval hasn't gone to waste, I assure you!
Miles: I look forward to working with you again, Lieutenant General Grumman.
Grumman: Oh ho, if it isn't Major Miles...
Boy, I can't tell you how glad I was to hear we'd be doing our joint at my place!
The north's MUCH too cold for an old fart like me!
Everyone: He's never even gone up North once.
Grumman: Let's do our best, eh?
Miles: Just try to go easy on us.
Grumman: Everything's ready on our end.
SFX: whisper whisper
Miles: Ours, too.
Grumman: Unfortunately, a TEENSY little problem's popped up...
Miles: ..What do you mean?
Grumman: Little ol' Bradley came to watch the show.
Miles: We'd accounted for the possibility of Central observing the joint training since the "Promised day" is so close, but...
Grumman: The boss man's here and it really threw a wrench into things, eh?
Ahhh, I'm getting fed up with all this.
we'll just have to figure something out.
it happened again...
Al: I feels like I'm getting pulled away more and more often...
I've got to hurry...
If I don't get my body back soon...
SFX: drip drip drip
Gluttony(!): I smell him...I smell him!
I smell the Fullmetal Alchemist's brother!
SFX: Griiiiiiiiin [H: Nothing beats the Gluttony "EAT TIME" grin]
Al: Shit, shit, SHIT!
SFX: Clank clank clank
Al: I can't afford to fight him with my body giving out on me!
...Should I try to destroy his Philosopher's Stone like Dr. Marcoh?
I messed up...
I never thought there'd be another Homunculus besides the one who sent out the Fuhrer!
I've gotta warn everyone-
Al: What...IS this...
SFX: Wobble, thud
Al: Not now...not now...
SFX: Skreee, Zuru
All SFX: Zuo zuo
Text: Alphonse is captured! Is this it?!
