But I guess things have to be put into perspective. Ed and Winry most likely weren't going to be JUST for each other. It's rare in most lives that you end up having only one significant other. Ed will have girlfriends and Winry will have boyfriends. But no amount of significant others in the world will ever have the same bond that they've got. I think this letter showed it. Even though he currently is with someone, it's still hard for him to write to her and know what to say because it seems like he's not saying what he truly wants to. He can't work around what he really wants to tell her (and yeah, it's a pretty big thing). It'd be too hard based on the circumstances. She is different for Ed and she will be with him every moment of everyday when he uses his left leg and right arm. He knows that too. But he's gotta move on. He's gotta live. And so does she. And when they meet again to be together, they'll have hott, passionate, [i]experienced[/i] sex. ;)
And on a more somber note, being that BONES wanted to incorporate real history into the movie, I'll conjure up a theory that Noah and her friends don't return. They [i]are[/i] gypsies in Germany afterall. Either they escape from the country or are captured and history takes its horrible, disgusting course.
You'd better believe I'll be writing a fic on this one.
