- Yes, Hawkeye is awesome!! ^^ And, yes, this will be considered as a redundant thread since we do have Hawkeye X Roy: The Royai Thread, For Roy, Riza, and Royai fans, and more!!
as the designated thread for Roy, Riza, and RoyxRiza related discussions on our board. Sorry...
And, here is why/how...
Over the years on our board, we did get many Riza Hawkeye discussion threads opened, and some of them, time to time, had allowed chances to develop into own discussion threads, yet they all ended up having too much redundant contents.. not only having same discussions about Riza on both "Riza" thread and "Royai" thread, but also soon or later Riza thread got inevitably filled with discussions on Riza's interactions with Roy for certain scenes, certain chapters, certain episode, certain magazine pics, etc., etc. (because of the special close tie/bond/connection on these two characters in FMA, especially in FMA manga storyline) and eventually these threads got ended up getting closed/deleted or merged to the current Roy, Riza, & Royai
thread as the redundant threads because of that.
Hence, from our experiences on our board, we came to the current set up of having Hawkeye X Roy: The Royai Thread, For Roy, Riza, and Royai fans, and more!!
as the designated discussion thread for Roy , Riza, and RoyxRiza related topics.
And, indeed, we have had many MANY interesting and sometimes very serious and very deep discussions on Riza on that thread that are NOT "Royai," and "without all the mushy, gooey romance stuff mucking it up" these discussions, such as Riza's relationship with her father, about Riza's tattoo, Riza cosplay, about Riza's name, Riza's gun, Riza's dog (Black Hayate) etc., etc., etc. I am personally amazed and very impressed on the depth of discussions they have on that particular thread, and many of these happen to be not about "mushy, gooey and mucked-up romance stuff."
Similarly, you are perfectly welcome to start discussions on Riza that are not Royai related but about Riza, such as Riza's interactions with other people, or Riza's early life, Riza's hobby, etc., etc. on that thread also, and that would be very much appreciated.
