Are you actually Fractyl? You've bombarded his/her subpage with edits for weeks. If you're not Fractyl, it's bad faith to repeatedly edit a user's personal pages without permission, and I will be rollbacking to the last appropriate edit, which will not be any of yours, I'm afraid.

Lighting Returns Edit WarEdit

Hello! I've noticed you adding:

 *In The Side Quest Tanbam's Taboo, Tanbam used alchemy to put the soul of his brother into a living automaton. This reflects the plot of Fullmetal Alchemist as its protagonist Edward Elric placed the soul of his brother Alphonse in a suit of armor.

To the Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII/Allusions page several times. I have repeatedly removed his, and explained in my edit notes why, but I guessed you haven't seen them :P Anyway, this is a common aspect of alchemy: The creation and transposition of a soul is part of the homunculus goal, one of the three aims of alchemy. This means that this ingame plot is not a refernce to the anime series, but a simply a common theme, one which also permiates through many other folk tales and mythologies.

Thanks for your time! Likeacupcake 05:27, March 9, 2014 (UTC)

Actually, the use of souls that has nothing do with the actual Homunculus myth. Even Wikipedia's entry on what homunculi are is different from your definition, as well as goal of alchemists are transmutating common metals into gold, panacea, and a universal solvent. 06:03, March 9, 2014 (UTC)
The three goals of Alchemy:
1)The transformation of a material into another, commonly quoted as common metal into gold, but really extended to any material to any material.
2)The perfection of the human form, including the removing of aliments and extending lifespan indefinitely. And;
3)The creation and manipulation of life and lifeforces. Including transfering life into inanimate objects and creating subserviant creatures.
We're still pursuing these goals today with "science", but that's a tangental line of thought. :P The point is: transfering a soul from a living being to an inanimate object isn't unique to the Fullmetal Alchemist series, and appears many, MANY, MANY times is mythology and folklore.

Perhaps, but it is unique as the soul belongs to the brother of person who actually committed the deed of transferring it into an random object. 16:48, March 9, 2014 (UTC)
As I said, it appears a LOT. I can't name one in such a configuration off the top of my head, but honestly I would actually be very surprised if it were unique: Folktales and mythologies often involve a single family ground; brothers, sisters, fathers, daughters. Likeacupcake 00:36, March 10, 2014 (UTC)
Well, doubting there is a myth that covers both conditions, it is unique as it involves a "taboo practice" and "one sibling transferring another's soul into an object". In terms of the Philosopher's Stone, unless referenced in the mythology section or related to the side quest, don't really see it being added in. 04:41, March 10, 2014 (UTC)

Lightning Saga Edit

You should create a Lightning Saga article where to put the story info you wrote. :) I don't think the Fabula Nova Crystallis page is the best place for it, but we could then link to it.Keltainentoukokuu (talk) 21:06, March 29, 2014 (UTC) EDIT: Looks like "Lightning Saga" is a redirect, but it could be made into its own article.Keltainentoukokuu (talk) 21:07, March 29, 2014 (UTC)

Well, besides room for further condensing, we can always wait for FFXV to be released as it may have articles relating to the Lightning Saga mythos. 21:26, March 29, 2014 (UTC)
