What did you think of Alphonse at this part?
It took *so* long for me to forgive him after reading this.
What a stupid, selfish thing to do. "Wah! Wah! I don't like seeing people die, so I'll just force you to watch helplessly while your only friends in the entire world are killed before your very eyes!"
I appreciate it's a hard decision to make and he didn't have long to do it, but he was in the exact same position himself for Christ's sakes! Is a little bit of empathy too much to expect from him? Stupid kid.
