Am I thankful or am I sad?
It's 3 October, and it's the anniversary of the day Ed and Al burned down their house. I still remember standing there, feeling the heat like a fist battering against me. I could barely breathe from how hot it was. I was crying, because I knew that Ed and Al were leaving to go on their quest, and because this was really the end of our lives together.

We've all changed so much since that day. I hope I think I know for the better.

I hope things just keep getting better. Ed and Al deserve it.

'Hoping'. That's something you're rather good at.

I guess I have to be, hopeful, I mean. I had to hope Ed and Al would come home safely, and that Ed would figure out how to keep Amestris safe.

How is it that you're able to do that?

I guess...because I trusted them.

Was it really necessary to burn down the whole house?

You'd have to ask Ed and Al that. It was their house.

Are you sure that will be a good idea?

Ed would probably like it, Kurt. He's sad, but it helps him to talk about it, too.

then I will.

You are okay?

Good. I know he'll be. Well, not happy, but thankful, Kurt.

I'm fine, thank you for asking!

I like to think so!

Sad. He always is, on this day.

I...saw the video but I didn't want to bother him. I'm glad he isn't alone, today.

He'll be going to see Al later today, too. It'll be all right. He just needs a day to mourn.

I'm sure he will, they always are...somehow.

Yes, they're very strong.

I think we've all changed for the better. And you all have become so much stronger than you were before.

Thank you, Naoto. I'd like to think that, too.

Still, it's hard to believe that it's been over a year since I first met Ed and Al. So much has happened in that short period of time.

When things first started out, I was just offering them asylum because they were friends of Mello's. But then I got to know them better, and I couldn't help but see a bit of myself in Ed. The person I was once like when I was young and still searching for my place. I'm glad I was able to help him on his journey, even if it was only a little. I wonder if this is how Senpai felt after helping all of us...?

It's been almost a year and a half since the community found me.

Ed and Al are both amazing young men. The people they've become...I'd like to say I've had part in shaping that, but. [Winry shrugs.] I can be proud of them, no matter what.

I think you did, Winry, even if you don't realize it yourself. The people that we meet in life--whether chance encounters or enduring friendships--those people influence us, even if just in a small way. I know for a fact that all the people I've come into contact with during the course of my life have all helped to shape me into the person I am today.

And you'll continue to support him for the rest of your life. After all, your his wife now.

Yes, I'll always support Ed. And Al, too. They mean the world to me.
