Knowing that Mikey will not be looking at him, Donnie slowly started drawing the image that pops up in his mind. But he still turn and look at Mikey from time to time, in case he peaks on it.
A few minutes later, he is done and sits up from the ground.
"Mikey, I’m done.
But… I’ve never been the most talented artist among us, so..
*just imagine a mediocre drawn April on a swing with the orange crayon xD*
Mikey opened his eyes excitedly then his face went blank. April… His heart wanted to draw April… He immediately smiled a large smile, “It’s amazing, Donnie. You are gonna be awesome at drawing soon! I just know it!” He completely hid the hurt he felt.
It’s a compliment, but Donnie felt as if something, somewhere, went wrong.
He doesn’t know what’s the cause, but the thoughts of fixing it is there.
And it at some point guilts him.
"…umm.. I.. "
Mikey looked away, pressing his fingers. Donnie knew he was a little upset and the look on his Don’s face broke his little heart.
He wrapped his arms around him and put his face in his neck. He didn’t mean to upset him. This was supposed to be fun…
Seeing Mikey being sad confirmed Donnie that he made a mistake.
It’s brothers instinct.
For a while, Donnie was silent and looked down, ashamed of himself.
"This is not how I want my little brother to feel like.." he thinks to himself..
"Mikey.. do we need some alone time
((OMFG I DIDNT SIGN UP FOR THIS FEEL FEST))
"No! You stay right there. Don’t move." He backed up and pulled out his favorite pencil and opened a fresh page in his sketchbook. He began to draw, tongue out in concentration as he did, "I’m not upset… That you… D-Drew… April…" He gulped.
It is that very moment when all of Donnie’s question is answered.
Donnie, himself, clarified this a “bro-and-bro doodling session”. But he himself destroyed that one point by gauging in his unhealthy yearning of April onto a canvas that, in reality, belongs to him and Mikey.
No words can describe the remorse in his mind right now.
I’m sorry” he hugs his brother, to the point they’re lying on the ground.
He is just a pinch away to crying out.
"I.. can’t believe I did that to hurt you..
I’m a failure of a brother..”
The teen’s eyes went wide in the hug and he dropped everything he was holding. His eyes filled up with tears and he, too wrapped his arms around his brother. His sniffled and his lower lip trembled and he hiccuped before tears began to fall down his face, “You could never fail me, Donnie. Ever.” He sobbed, “When you lost your smartness, I was upset. I was afraid it would change who you were… Change what I love about you… And for a good while… You were different. But when I saw that smile. YOU’RE smile and… I knew I would be able to bring you back. He backed out of the hug and pressed noses with him, “I’m scared to lose you… Even to April. I’m sorry…”
Donnie who has already started crying quietly in the middle of Mikey’s response tried really hard to contain his sudden whimpers and hics.
Out of happiness, he kissed Mikey on the cheek and smiles a little, although still in tears. “I never owned April in the first place.. Even if I do, my brothers always come first.”
never change, Mikey..”
Mikey sighed and smiled at him, wiping his eyes. He took his hand and kissed his nose, “I love you, Donnie.” He backed away a little, grabbing his pencil and pad, “Now sit still. I’m not done.” This was much sweeter smile, clearly more natural. He was definitely happier now.
Donnie smiled and sit still as Mikey has told.
He can feel Mikey’s much more sincere happiness, and can finally lift off the guilt.
Mikey stuck out his tongue again , really making sure to get things right, “Allllmost got iiiit. A liiiiitle more… aaaaaaaand DONE!” He flipped his book around to let him see, “It’s still now awesome, but-…”
"Mikey don’t be ridiculous, this is great!"
Half of him is also happy to see the way Mikey portrayed him.
"Okay now.. it’s your turn to sit still, heheh.." he picks up the color pencil, waiting to begin drawing.
Mikey’s eyes lit up. Donnie really liked his work and this gave Mikey little butterflies in his tummy. He sat back and sat still, couldn’t help but smile as his little tail thunked against the floor.
I will never not reblog this gif set.
Just a little chart I found the other day!
Congrats on hitting puberty, Ed.
It’s so weird seeing these gifs because when you actually watch the show they do it so gradually that you barely even notice (at least I didn’t) but then you look at these and it’s like, whoaa. Even Winry has a completely different face, it’s not just Ed getting taller and more muscular.
Animation, you’re doing it right.
especially when you consider this happens in what, a year? a year and a half?
This is actually one of the things I love most about FMA. They age so gradually, just like real people. A lot of times in anime and other animation, there’s not really a slow process of growing up; it’s just sort of, “Hey, look, she has curves now, and he’s way taller.”
OH FUCK, I didn’t even know this was a thing.
i have childhood memories that i am not 100% sure actually happened or if i dreamed them i really do not know
WHO WOULD DO THIS TO ME
DO NOT GO ONTO THEIR BLOG.
the 2001 oscars are real and this happened in real life. this is something mankind should never forget.
