(male AP) You progress not only in levels and skills, but in physical appearence as well. Your character will become "Shwarzenegger-ish" if you fight all the time, and you become skinny and tattoo covered if all you do is cast magic. Your character starts off like a teen, and matures into a full grown adult. He does not age to an old, decrepit man.

Timmy is upset because he is stuck with Vicky again for the day and of course she is forcing him to do her chores. I did not see the part but I figure he wishes that she was the kid and he was baby sitter. The scene I saw was when she was on the couch as usual and she begins to shrink into a 5 yr old. Timmy stays the same but he then treats her the same way she did. She has no memory of being 16 or being evil. Later in the episode Vicky gets Timmy's godparent's because she needs them the more. The rest of the episode she does what he used to do her. Of course at the end he gets them back, they don't show her turn back, instead at the end Timmy lets Little Vicky have a fun day and says that if Vicky was not his baby-sitter he wouldn't have godparent's since they are given to miserable kids.

But then she suddenly faints. As Lala falls to the floor, she automatically transforms back to Miho (as well as the clothes disappearing).

Fancy Lala

Movie: Vol. 03: "Taking Center Stage"

The boundaries of reality grow increasingly tenuous in the adventures of Miho Shinohara, the third-grader with the magical power to transform herself into glamorous 15-year-old Fancy Lala. In "Who Are You," Miho stumbles into an eerie alternate world distorted by "the Memories of Time," where her family doesn't rEcognize her. A discarded teddy bear triggers an elaborate dream that combines elements of The Wizard of Oz, Babes in Toyland, and The Nutcracker in "Miho in Toyland." Lala is hounded by the press when a tabloid suggests that she and pop star Hiroya are lovers (and Japanese tabloids are apparently much tamer than their Western counterparts). When Lala learns about baseball from handsome athlete Hoshizawa, Miho tests the knowledge to help Taro and the school team end a losing streak. Fancy Lala offers girls a fantasy-adventure that's wholesome without being sarcastic or smart. (Rated 7 and older: suitable for all Ages)

Her "dinosaur-fairies" Pigu and Mogu cause a their usual ruckus in the countryside. Miho transforms into 15-year-old Fancy Lala and co-anchors a TV show about the local "water imp" (actually a kappa, a dangerous water spirit in Japanese folklore) with heartthrob Hiroya. As Lala, Miho learns that Shoichiro's girlfriend Haruka lives next door to him and that he used to be as obnoxious as Taro, the boy who lives next door to Miho. These parallels offer the heroine a possible vision of her own future, and suggests that Lala is helping her grow up. (Rated 7 and older: suitable for all Ages)

Switching identities enables Miho to resolve her feelings about her mother's career and improve their relationship. In the weakest story, a pair of obnoxious twins spy on Miho and almost discover Lala's true identity. Miho outwits them with some help from the "dinosaur-fairies" Pigu and Mogu, but Sayaka and Asuka Futasugi sound like Team Rocket in Pokémon when they speak in unison.

A mysterious rider comes to the travelers with a riddle. The riddle tells of a stone which is a key to lead them home to Eviland. He says to follow the runner Kedryn for he will lead them to the house below and in a hall of echoes they will find the stone. But be warned. "Nearing you see with other eyes in holding things alter shape and size in giving you win the prize". The rider then quickly leaves just as they see a man running. Fred and Varian take chase. During this chase, Kedryn makes a rock slide happen with his mind. The chase leads to a house in a valley (the house below). They go back for the others and bring them to the house where Kedryn and Krysta welcome them. During dinner, a storm starts outside and when the lightning strikes, Scott sees an old man where Kedryn is sitting. He is unsettled and later tells the others what he has seen (approaching seeing with other eyes). The next day, Willoway plays sick. While Fred and Scott keep Kedryn and Krysta away from the house horse back riding, Varian and Willoway search the house and grounds. They all find their way to the hall of echoes: Scott and Fred when Scott's horse is spooked (Kedryn's doing); Willoway through a passage in the house; and Varian through a trap door in an out building. Willoway finds the stone but get's sealed in a block of ice. Fred and Scott meet up with Varian and they send Scott back to the house to look for Willoway. He doesn't find Willoway but finds that everything in the house has aged 50 years (in holding alter shape and size). Fred and Varian find Willoway in the block of ice and Varian uses his healing tool to thaw him out. They rush back to the house to find Scott and are amazed to find the state of the place. As they pack up their things, they each find themselves in their own nightmares. Varian realizes what's happening and yells to the others that it isn't real and to think only of each other to break the spell. It works and they leave the house. On the way out they meet the old Kedryn and Krysta and are told that the stone has given them the illusion of youth for that is what the people of their land valued most. But the travelers made them see that what they had now was real and when Varian offered them the stone back, Kedryn refused, saying it was their now (in giving you win the prize).

Fantastic Journey

TV Series: Season 01; Episode #10: "Innocent Prey" (06/16/1977) NBC

It was probably the first AR story I remember seeing. The series was about a group of people stranded in the Bermuda Triangle, where time and space are a jumble. They form a family unit that included Roddy McDowell as a Doctor Smith stand-in trying to hinder the good guys for his selfish reasons. In the episode that ran March 24, 1977, a space ship transporting a criminal crash lands in the Bermuda Triangle. The two guards are killed, but the convicted murderer escapes. He terrorizes a colony in the Triangle populated by very innocent people (men in long white robes, women in white mini-skirts; all derivative of the Thermians in Galaxy Quest) who get everything they need from a glowing orb operated by their leader.

The criminal decides he wants the orb to use to commit additional crimes, kill off enemies, and feed all his pleasures. The colony protests. The criminal kills the leader's teenage son in an attempt to steal the orb, which is repelled by the regular cast of this series. The colony's people will not raise their fists in rage. In the end, the leader decides to give the orb to the criminal. On touching it, it blasts him to the ground and which watch him go through five stages of becoming younger (his shirt remains adult size). He ends up a baby, whom the mini-skirted women coo. It seems that to operate the orb, one must be totally innocent, and the only way to criminal could be made that innocent was to rewind his life. The leader tells the regular characters he will raise the regressed criminal to replace his son. Okay, that's what I remember, but the date came from checking old TV mags on microfilm in the library.

TV Series: Season 02; Episode #02: "Vitas Mortis" (3/24/00)

Rumors abound about an old Luxan named Nilaam. D'Argo is determined to find her. With the notable exception of Aeryn Sun and the Peacekeepers, instances of Moya's crew encountering members of their own race in the Uncharted Territories are so rare that each one warrants further exploration. At the very least, D'Argo could commune with one of his own people. Also, it is possible that this Luxan might protests vitally needed maps. The rumors about Nilaam has left out one important fact however: she is an Orican. These legendary Luxan holy women are revered throughout the Territories for their spiritual powers. But, despite all her mystical strength, the aged Nilaam is on the verge of death when D'Argo, Zhaan, and Crichton find her. She wants a fellow Luxan to assist her in her traditional "Ritual of Passing" to impart the additional life energy she needs in making her final ascension to a higher plane. For D'Argo this is the highest honor that a Luxan could receive and, after Nilaam's somewhat invasive interview of him, the ritual is performed. The ceremony has some unexpected results though. Instead of dying, the opposite occurs and Nilaam is rejuvenated. D'Argo, she says, is bursting with life energy; enough to perform the "Ritual of Renewal" instead of the "Ritual of Passing." Now she is completely transformed and can continue her life as a young, powerful, vibrant Orican. As thanks, Nilaam offers to use her immense spiritual abilities to assist D'Argo and the rest of Moya's crew in realizing all our wishes. The Leviathan's systems had mysteriously begun failing. Her amnexus fluid was freezing. Tremors were occurring on all her tiers. Her hull was starting to degenerate. Even Nilaam's awesome powers could not improve Moya's rapidly deteriorating health. In fact, the more the Luxan holy woman tries to help, the worse the Leviathan's condition got. Unless someone quickly figures out what is wrong, Nilaam's spiritual 'healing' could decay Moya's body beyond all repair.

The Fat Spy

Movie: (1966)

Joseph Cates (Who Killed Teddy Bear?) directed this insipid, widely reviled musical-comedy featuring heavyset comedian Jack E. Leonard in his leaden screen debut as twins Irving and Herman. The plot concerns some teenagers searching for treasure on a tropical island owned by a cosmetics tycoon (Brian Donlevy). His daughter (Jayne Mansfield, a year before her death) heaves her bosom a great deal and sings (badly). The best singing is done by lead teen Jordan Christopher, making his own screen debut with some promising numbers backed by the Wild Ones. There are a number of subplots involving spies, mermaids, and the legendary Fountain of Youth, as well as some amusing interplay between Leonard and Phyllis Diller to keep things interesting. Woman and man eat the spotted black rose to regain their youth only to end up as kindergartners. (M,F/Ar)

A Fate Totally Worse Then Death


'A fate totally worse than death', mentioned in an earlier post by someone is perhaps the greatest piece of mainstream AP literature I have ever read. Do not be scared away by the fact that is categorized as 'young adult' It has a very dark humor to it that steers away from the 'silliness' of most young adult books I remember reading when I was younger. But it is very easy to read probably only taking an afternoon to read. The characters are so historically funny that I’ve had several friends of mine read it. Also there sort of an infantilist bit in it, one of the girls loses control of her bladder forcing her to wear adult diapers. The book very much felt like I was reading something off this board, and if Paul Fleischman isn't on here already I think someone should tell him about because I bet he'd love this board. Anyway you can pick up the book at amazon.com and most bookstores should be able to order it. And if your a fan of AP I say pick it up ASAP.

Favorite Story

syndicated program Vice Versa: (1955)

a stockbroker father played by Adolphe Menjou receiving a crystal orb from India that supposedly grants one wish per person. While holding the orb, the broker's son enters his office to complain about being sent back to a boys' boarding school. The father gives him a lecture that ends, 'I wish I was a boy again and had the opportunity to go to such a fine school.' The father turns into a boy. He hands the orb to his son and asks him to wish him back to normal, but the son wishes to be a grown-up, then has his dad bundled off to the boarding school. The father gets the worst of the deal. He complains of being forced to wear only short pans, and gets caned twice by the headmaster for engaging in his favorite adult activities, smoking cigars and drinking brandy.

The grown-up son over-indulges in treats like ice cream, and shifts his dad's investments from steel mills and coal mines to toy manufacturers. In the end, the father has his secretary use the orb to return both to normal, but only after she blackmails him into doubling her salary. The changes in age are done strictly by changing camera angles in which new actors in age-appropriate clothing replace the old. The father and son retain the same voices throughout, which leads some to believe their mismatched voices to be the sign of a bad cold and force them to take a foul-tasting medicine.

Fear # 1

Comic Book: "What Was the Strange Power of Simon Drudd?!! " [Reprinted from Tales to Astonish # 10] (?)

The elderly Simon Drudd was a chemist trying to create a “youth serum”. Using all sources, from the legendary formulas of the ancients to the most modern medical findings, Drudd, and his assistant Bentley, struggled onward, despite the growing ridicule from colleagues and the public. One day, Drudd cried out in triumph that he finally had the correct chemical formula. Drudd ordered Bentley, at gunpoint, into the freezer. Drudd then revealed that he always intended to use the formula only on himself for his own selfish protests; planning to take the serum every twenty years, he planned to become immortal. Drudd drank the serum, bEcoming younger and younger. From old man, to young man, to teenager, to boy, to infant, Drudd continued getting younger. The police arrived and freed Bentley from the freezer; going into the lab, they found an empty pile of clothes, the only thing remaining of Simon Drudd.

Comment: Speculation - Drudd’s “youth serum” may have been an unstable variant of the immortality elixir used by the evil alchemist Diablo, first mentioned in Fantastic Four # 30.

Colt is almost killed on Jungle Island by a She-Cat maddened by the increasing power of Sehkmet over her soul. Colt is still confused over the exact nature of She-Cat's affliction and is troubled by her announced intention to kill herself if she goes over the edge. Meanwhile, Capt. Tom Kelly visits the Burke home and tells Jen and David the secret behind Joan Wayne's long career as Ms. Victory. Jen quickly deduces that what Kelly is leading up to is for her to take Joan's place as the new Ms. Victory. Wanting nothing to do with the government, Jen throws Kelly out. Back on Jungle Island, Tara, against Janis's protests, goes to search for Rad and finds her in the Jungle Island lab safeguarding her last supply of V-45.

In the nether-realm of Alizarin Crimson, Tara awakens from a dream to the sound and image of Janis Lawson romping playfully through Crimson's fortress. She pursues the fleeing figure and runs into Colt, who is also free of her prison. Guided by a mysterious form of mental energy, Colt leads Tara to the cell where Nightveil's astral spirit is imprisoned. Crimson, who had been gloating over the fate of Dr. Pretorius at the hands of his own creations (which she controlled), spies the heroines' activity and moves to intercept. As she launches an attack on Colt and Tara, the mystical consciousness within Colt's mind leaves her and returns to its rightful owner, Nightveil. Free, and seething with vengeance, the sorceress decisively defeats Crimson and explains to Colt and Tara how she had created the image of Janis and planted the consciousness in Colt's mind that allowed she and Tara to free her. Nightveil's satisfaction turns to panic as she remembers Claudette and her imminent possession by Sehkmet. Her mystic vision sees that She-Cat has been transformed into a snarling, raging cat-beast. The young girl she menaces stands her ground and is able to help Claudette submerge the spirit of Sehkmet once again. Nightveil registers a shock of recognition when she learns that the young girl's name is Octavia.

Meanwhile, off Jungle Island, Nightveil comes aboard Janis and Tara's boat and tries to get Janis to open up her feelings after her recent reconciliation with Tara. They are soon joined by Colt, but as she, Tara, and Janis drive through the jungle in a jeep they are attacked by government agents who do not know that the Femforce have been cleared of the destruction of the Fremont Building. The outcome of the battle is uncertain until the odds are tipped by the unexpected arrival of the savage She-Cat. With the misunderstandings cleared up and the agents gone, She-Cat explains the nature of her bond with Octavia and why that bond will ultimately prove unstable - the youth formula Octavia developed is causing her to age backwards.

At a top level government meeting, General Gordon plots with his staff to eliminate Rad by "untraceable means," fearing that her altered personality now poses a security risk. Capt. Tom Kelly, who objected to the plan and was thrown out of the meeting by Gordon, places an anonymous call to Colt to warn her of the plot. The Femforce agree that the only way to save Joan is to wean her off the V-45 and convince the government that she is no longer a threat. Stardust enlists the help of her old allies in the Sentinels of Justice and the two teams set out in search of Rad. Joan, meanwhile, has employed her still-formidable scientific skills to develop a youth formula she sells from the back of a health-food store she has opened. The Femforce and Sentinels track her down and a brawl erupts during which Tara and the Scorpion are severely injured. The group succeeds in cutting off Joan from her V-45 supply, weakening her enough to fall to a knockout punch from Paragon. Joan awakens in the hospital two days later, powerless but with her youth and Rad personality intact. She-Cat reaches out to her but is coldly rejected.

The abos have the ability to shape-change. "In the bright daylight he could see fine wrinkles near her eyes; the girl was aging." He then asks her how old she is and she replies, "Twenty-one." Are the wrinkles genuine, or the result of minor shape-shifting? The same question can also be asked of Celetstine Etienne's youthful appearance. Is it real or like the acting abilities of Victor's mother, who "could talk to a man, and he would believe her a girl, a virgin, barely out of school. But then if she did not like him, she would become an old woman--a matter of the voice, the muscles of the face, the way she walked and held her hands."

First Wave

TV Series: Season 01; Episode #05: "Elixir" (4/16/99) [Journal Entry 5]

Crazy Eddie tied this quatrain into the bizarre evens of May 16 in Kalkaska, Michigan. Customers say a beautiful young woman goes from 22 to 102 while doing the shimmy-shake at a local bar.

She was later identified as Miss Margaret Grant, resident of a local retirement home in town. Decided to start there. Eddie said rEcords indicated that this woman had a nephew in Anchorage, Alaska. It was time to say goodbye to Cade Foster, and hello to Ben Grant.

The home's administrator, Sarah, was quick to write off the stories of Margaret's death to the local drunks in the bar. I made myself acquainted with Margaret's friends, Patricia and Leonard, to see if they had any insight into the recent death. They were less than forthcoming, even secretive, but I was able to squeeze Leonard for some information. He pointed me towards "The Organic Source" health food store.

Leonard said the salesman promised to make them all young again.

Met Trevor Hyams at the health food store, a snake-oil salesman to the core. He was pushing a youth elixir on a group of seniors, an elixir he claimed that would magically reverse the aging process. Hyams was less than happy to pitch the potion to me.

I came back later that night and let myself in to the store. As I was taking the five-finger discount on the elixir as evidence, Hyams interrupted…and attacked. He revealed himself as an alien. I knew for sure they had come to Kalkaska.

Why would the aliens want to make the old young again? Why were they trying to exploit our need to stay young, beautiful, and strong? Maybe the aliens had plans to use the elixir after their sEcond wave invasion… for a vast labor force of perpetually young, strong, and renewable slaves.

Flash #193

DC Comic Book: "Captain Cold Blows His Cool" (10/16/1969)

It begins with a breakout at Central State Penitentiary, where Captain Cold helps five "old timers" escape by, get this, making them young. No explanation is given for Cold's miraculous power, which alone would make someone rich beyond any other crime they may commit, but I digress.

Cold explains that he is in love with old-time movie star Laura Lamont, who's heart he intends to win over by making her young and presenting her with magnificent gifts that he needs the ex-"old timers" to steal for him. Cold also tells us that he does not know where to find Lamont, but that Iris Allen has written an article and interview with Lamont and so he plans on getting here whereabouts from Iris.

In disguise as an estate attorney he visits Iris, explaining the Lamont has come into some big money. Iris will not tell Cold Lamont's location but agrees to pass along the information. Barry thinks the attorney looks familiar and notices him following Iris as she drives off to see Lamont. I already hate this story, but the next piece seals it for me. Barry hesitates "several seconds" before deciding to follow as the Flash and is unable to locate Iris or Cold. Horrible writing on Broome's part.

While searching though he does find some of the ex-"old timers" stealing a painting for Cold and he captures them. The next day he finds out that they have the same fingerprints as two of the old guys who recently escaped. He also finds out that there were a rash of robberies last night. Searching for clues he finds an old stump outside of town that is frozen and figures Captain Cold is behind it all. He traces the residual radiation from Captain Cold's "Cold-Gun" but it soon dissipates. He eventually picks up the radiation trail again and tracks it back to Captain Cold. Another digression here: if Flash has the ability to do this, why has he not done it in the past to quickly find and capture Captain Cold? Like I said, really bad writing by Broome.

Where was I? I yeah, Flash has found Cold but Cold hits him with an Absolute Zero Ray that blows Flash into pieces and embeds him into the wall of Cold's hideout. Cold places a picture frame around the broken Flash (this looks pretty stupid folks, which is why the Carmine Infantino cover was such a great idea). Having followed Iris the night before Cold goes to Laura Lamont's house, makes her young, takes her to his hide-out where he gives her the gifts and proposes to her. He then goes off to call a Justice of the Peace to marry them tonight, but dials Heat-Wave instead and invites him over to show him the frozen Flash.

Heat-Wave once to take on last crack at the Flash and blasts him with his Heat-Blaster, reversing the effect of Cold's gun and restoring the Flash, who quickly mops up the room with the two, now bickering, villains. Laura Lamont doesn't want to be young and uses her ability with make-up to make herself look old again and swears she will do that for the rest of her life.

Iris takes Barry by a theater where Laura sells tickets to her old movies. Later on Barry explains that while he was frozen by Captain Cold, his brain still functioned and that he concentrated on Heat-Wave and through some here-to-fore unknown and never-heard-of-again telepathic ability on Barry's part, got Cold to call Heat-Wave instead of the Justice of the Peace.

After a brief, futile search, she is shipped off from her home in Des Moines to her uncle's New York apartment, where she finds a portal to a peculiar magical land, and the starting point of an even more peculiar journey. Beatriz forms unlikely friendships with Death, a family of people with wings, assorted innkeepers, and two nameless orphans. After hair-raising encounters with a malevolent witch and her unpleasant assistants, Beatriz discovers that she has been much closer to home—and to her parents—than she initially believed.

The fourth volume in Cherryh's Fortress cycle finds TristenAcreated by the wizard Mauryl to combat the power-crazed, undying spirit of the dark sorcerer Hasufin HeltainAsent back to Amefel as its duke, replacing the dishonored Orien Aswydd. Orien was cast into exile with her sister, Tarien, for betraying her oaths as duchess, and for colluding with Hasufin. But now Orien and Tarien, who is eight months pregnant with King Cefwyn's bastard child, are making their way through a supernatural storm to return to Amefel. Back in the capital, Cefwyn and his foreign bride, Ninevrise, are plotting a war, which is getting complicated by their many enemies and the kingdom's dual religious practices, as well as by the general populace's distrust of Ninevrise (because they believe she subscribes to the wrong religion and suspect that she may partake in heinous magical practices). Ninevrise, meanwhile, suspects she may be pregnant with Cefwyn's legitimate heir-but the child will be born after Tarien's illegitimate baby, who is already the subject of controversy, for the vile Hasufin plans to use the first-born as his conduit. As bitter winter winds blow throughout the kingdom, Tristen must battle for the souls of two royal children, while Cefwyn wages war to protect his inheritance and that of his wife against betrayal. The Fortress series (Fortress of Owls, etc.) generally devotes more attention to politics than plot twists, and this is true here.

The Fountain of Youth

Audio CD: Baby Yaga Records: by Keith Bilderbeck (December 2002)

Timucuan, a young man who must journey to the Fountain of Youth to save his father's life after a hunting accident. On the advice of the Wizard Okoatlee, and accompanied by his raccoon friend, Timucuan sets out to steal a magic stone belonging to Maya, the witch of the Fountain. The good deeds he performs along the way, such as rescuing a heron from alligators, are rewarded, allowing Timucuan not only to save his father, but also to foil Maya's evil plans and find love with the Wizard's daughter. This album contains 24 songs performed by a 50-piece orchestra, 11 of which feature vocal tracks. The music blends Caribbean rhythms, Native American chants, and a variety of other musical styles. The pounding chant, "Soul of the Panther," sets the tone for the story, which often deals with dark topics, such as Maya's use of ancestors' bones to create an army of undead soldiers.

Fountain of Youth


The legend of the Fountain of Youth is associated with the exploration of America. Tradition placed the spring that gives eternal youth somewhere in India. Ponce de León had established a colony in Puerto Rico, in the West Indies. When he was told by the Indians of a miraculous spring in a northern region called Bimini, he thought it must be the Fountain of Youth. In his search for the fountain he discovered the Bahamas and Florida. (See also Ponce de León .)

The legend was known throughout Europe in the Middle Ages. It apparently originated in northern India and was brought to Europe by travelers and merchants as early as the 7th century AD. There are references to it in early Hindu writings. In the myths of ancient Greece and Rome there was no Fountain of Youth within the reach of people on Earth, but there was a spring of immortality in the spirit world.

The Fountain of Youth in time became confused with a Semitic legend of a River of Immortal Life, to be found in paradise. Alexander the Great was said to have searched for the River of Immortality in India.

From the Dust Returned


From the Dust Returned chronicles a community of eternal beings: a mummified matriarch who speaks in dust; a sleeping daughter who lives through the eyes and ears of the creatures she visits in her dreams; an uncle with wings like sea-green sails. And there is also the mortal child Timothy, the foundling son who yearns to be like those he loves: to fly, to sleep in daytime, and to live forever. Instead, his task is to witness the family's struggle with the startling possibility of its own end.

FullMetal Alchemist

Anime Cartoon Series: Season 04: Episode #11: "Homunculus Seal"

Ed discovers Sloth and Al at Tucker's research lab. He tries to convince Al that the Homunculus is not their mother, and not to be trusted, but Al is pretty sure that it'll be fine. So Ed has to do things his way. He reveals the pieces of his mother's corpse that he dug up in Rizenbul, stunning Sloth, and giving him a chance to seal her forever. Lust had drawn a sealing transmutation circle with her claws, so it could not be destroyed, and Ed lured Sloth into it. The deal was almost done, when Al in his infinite wisdom decided that he was going to save the homunculus, so he threw the box containing a piece of his mother out the window, thus freeing Sloth. Lust held her at bay while Ed went to get the box, but Wrath was waiting outside, and decided to absorb the box into himself so Ed couldn't get it back. More and more it became clear that the brothers would not win this battle so easily, especially with Al helping out the Homunculus. Sloth freed herself from the circle, and while Ed chased Sloth, who was now controlling Al's body from the inside, Wrath and Lust squared off. Lust is easily destroyed though, as Wrath found her locket and used it to stop her on the transmutation circle. Wrath killed Lust and headed off to find Sloth. Fortunately for the brothers, who were not in great shape at this point, Wrath was a bit inexperienced, and foolishly merged himself with Sloth. Having the box inside of him, this stopped them both and gave Ed his chance to destroy his creation, Sloth, once and for all. Wrath has a near death dream in the beginning of the episode where he becomes younger and younger. Ends up as a baby crawling toward his mother. (Ar)

Father neutralizes everyone's alchemy, but, before he can annihilate them, Hohenheim reveals his countermeasure: he had spent years traveling the country, placing fragments of his own Philosopher's Stone into the earth to use as foundation for returning the Amestrian souls to their bodies. The stone fragments are activated by the eclipse's umbra, and the souls are ripped from Father's body back into their original bodies, which weakens Father to the point of barely being able to suppress God anymore. The eclipse then lifts, blinding Bradley with sunlight and allowing Scar to kill him. Scar activates the nationwide alkahestry circle his brother and fellow Ishbalans had been preparing, which restores everyone else's alchemy at their greatest potential. Facing the full strength of his opponents' attacks in his unstable body, Father retreats aboveground to find more souls and replenish his stone supply. Ed remains behind to fight Pride while everyone else chases Father. Pride tries to steal Ed's body to replace his own unstable one, but Kimblee's soul reappears within him and taunts him while Ed enters his body and destroys it, reverting him to the form of a small fetus-like creature. Ed spares Pride's life and leaves to join his friends. (Ar)

Future Eden

Book: by Colin Thompson (07/01/2000)

Some Ar is mentioned in this book.

[There was no problem bringing everyone back to life and at first everyone was wonderfully happy. Actually a lot of people weren’t that happy, especially old men who had re-married younger women when their old wives had died and now found themselves in court for bigamy. And it seemed as if the New-Living were younger and healthier than when they had died. And that was the problem, they were. A month after revival they were ten years younger than the day they had died. Six months later they were twenty years younger. It was fabulous. Old arthritic men threw away their sticks and married women half their age. Except that after a year the women weren’t half their age. They were older and a year later the old men were teenagers and there was no way of stopping the rejuvenation process. After two years all the New-Living or Re-borns were dead. A few survived as cells frozen in laboratory dishes but for the majority, they passed their first birthdays, forgot how to walk, lost their teeth, threw up on their wives shoulders, spent a few days attached to robot breast feeders then simply fizzled out. ]
