Tombow - Good luck with your connection! Yay for more Royai-ness! And good job with the translation! Poor Roy...useless in water, as always. XD That's why he has Riza! Can't wait for another haiku and more translations...
We're all overloaded with Royai-ness, but that's a very good thing!
Liz - Yay, more cosplay! Well, at least the Hello kitty umbrella is blue XD And more pics. That's also one of my favorite moments in the anime...
Zachelle - Head...swelling up... XD Yeesh, two more days before I officially start the college life...

@Liz - Nice fanarts, and awesome cosplay pics!! Love the wallpaper you made!! That's lovely!!
@Amethyst Sunset - Thanks!! my connection is slooow tonihgt, but at least it's steady, so I think I can post stuff slowly. ^^ But yeah, we are all overloaded with Royainess!! And, best of luck with your college life!!
More of my fav Royai pic..
And another previously posted (fan fun-subbed) omake, Please read Right panel first, then to the Left panel. ^^
I think this one was done by one of our posters..
And, here is my Royai Japanese Haiku for today.
Setting: Episode 25. After the [spoiler]Hughes[/spoiler]' funeral, after all others have left, Roy and Riza are standing alone by the [spoiler]Hughes[/spoiler]' tombstone. Riza is standing behind Roy. On Roy's back, Riza sees the loneliness & sadness of having lost his best friend. Without turning, Roy tells Riza, "It is going to rain..." (it's sad, yet one of my favorite Royai scenes... ^^)
"His friend is gone. He is standing by the tomb, wearing sadness on his back. The blue sky. Yet, feels like it will be rain ahead."
(The Chinese letter applied to the word "sora"=sky is not the traditional one, but 碧, implying blue sky. And, as a "kakekotoba" .... 立つ (tatsu=stand) is invoking the word 発つ (tatsu=depart,) implying the departure of [spoiler]Houghes[/spoiler] from this life. ^^)

Amethyst Sunset! Looking forward to Twilight 7! But I haven't read 6 yet, so I'll read that first! Haha! Your comment reminds me of how Hughes is always telling Roy to wisen up and get a wife! And how Roy used to slam the phone down when he hears such comments. [spoiler] Bet Hughes is smiling down at them from heaven now![/spoiler]
Oh anyway, thanks to everyone who read my fanfic, which link I posted a few pages back. Glad you all enjoyed it, as much as I enjoyed writing it. (Wasn't around for the weekend, so I didn't see the wonderful reviews) To be honest, that was the first fanfic I've written in a long time. It's also the first FMA fanfic. So yes, I dedicated my virgin FMA fanfic to Royai-ness!! HahaZ.
Think I'd better go sleep... *yawns* I have to wake up early tomorrow... Take care everyone! Sorry I don't have any Royai goodness to share, but I suppose there's enough to go around for now yea? =)

And, just FYI again... the Royai Day World Observation TimeChart:
Royai Day, June 11 (Japan Time) starts when it's June 11th, 12:00 AM in Tokyo Japan (That's assumed to be where Arakawa-sensei's Ushigoya farm/office is located.) and ends about 24 hours after that (June 11th, 11:59:59 PM in Tokyo, Japan.) Another words, we ALL observe the simultaneous 24 hour time period.
If we do this way this year again, our official 24 hour Royai Day for this year is (in each respective local time): in Auckland, New Zealand, Monday, June 11th, 3:00 AM - Tuesday, June 12th, 2:59 AM,
