Happy Royai Day (from the UK!!) xP
I did something, but I'm not entirely happy with it...My scanner massacred the grey, especially, and made it look more streaky than it actually is. And as you can tell, I didn't bother editing out all of the mistakes I did with the lineart. xDxD!! And for all I know, my laptop could be lying to me and all of the colours could look pretty hideous. Ahaha!
(Warning!My image has potential end of series spoilers!) Until the End This is the two after the end of the series...and no worries...no awful 'tache for Mustang! I chose this particular part in the time line because I wanted to show that my favourite thing about Royai is how they'll follow and help each other until the very end. After all that's happened, Riza still chooses to follow Roy. That's why I went for their poses: Roy motioning forward and Riza happily saluting.
I'll comment on everything once everyone has contributed at the end of Royai day! Everything's looking marvellous thus far!
@jacksparrow I collected these links for you to save from it all building up for you...I hope that's okay. Please feel free to edit, and put them wherever necessary and delete from my post.

@ A Pierrot's Aria - I love your art! Your style is very cute, and the colors are bright and fun! Love it!
@ Schnabeltier – I love your pictures, especially the coffee one! As for your story, it was very cute, and the way you told it and the point of view you used were very clever. (though I don’t drink coffee, either!) Happy RoyAi day!
@ 4d – Awesome sketch of an awesome picture! That’s got to be my favorite Roy/Riza wallpaper
@ HawkseyeM1910 – Amazing detail on her back! I also love the pic of the two together. So cute and I love seeing Riza in her civilian clothing.
@ yaiina – Your style is so adorable! I love the way you draw! The family picture is my favorite – so precious!
@ First Moon – Love the playlist! Cool idea!
@ iAmJelly – Your fan fic was absolutely beautiful. I loved the way you wrote it, and I loved the last line so much. It really sums up the depth of their relationship.
@ angelstar2408 – One Step at a Time was very cute and sweet! I love the second one as well! They’re always there for each other @ Ultimate Shield – I adore your drawing! So cute and the colors are lovely! Riza’s expression is hilarious!
@ jacksparrow – Congrats on finishing your 100th chapter! That’s amazing! Great timing lol It was very sweet and summed up their relationship well, like a big red bow on top of your collection! XD

Everything that's been posted so far is great. I love all the sketches, fics, and other media that's been posted.
@Dark-Winds your cake is amazing. I can't express how much I adore it. Send a piece of it to Florida for me
Edit: Also, this is my friend and mines first Royai day, I drew and she began writing a multi-chapter fic, she tried posting on here but it wasn't working for some reason, so I'm advertising this for her because she keeps nagging me to

Hello, hello! I'm more of a lurker in this forums, but this is very nice we're all celebrating Royai Day here! I'm really loving the art so far and I need to get reading the fics when I have the chance (I had read iAmJelly's story and am caught up with Lady Norbert's trilogy, both very awesome writers! )
Okay, a couple contributions:
One Night at Madame Christmas: A short story where Roy takes Riza to meet his mother (Madame Christmas) for the first time. This was written for the help_japan auction that was going on at livejournal a while ago and finished the story in time for Royai Day!
Drifting Apart: In which Roy and Riza are driven nuts after being separated (takes place after Fuhrer King Bradley separated Roy's men). I actually wrote this a while ago for a writing community at Dreamwidth, but I think this is also appropriate for Royai Day.
LOL, sorry both of them are on the long side. I hope you guys enjoy these, though!
As for why I love Royai, like the others said they had been through a lot together and trusted one another greatly. Also there's this recurring theme of "DON'T DIE!" between them, so it seems they can't live without one another, as hard as they tried. :3

My favorite thing about Royai is the subtlety; in most programs I've seen I don't fall in love with pairings because they're always so heavy-handed with sexual jokes, and fanservice every 30 seconds, and blah blah let's draw as much attention to it as possible. But not Royai. It's there, but it's not given enough focus to ruin it. Plus their extensive, traumatic and codependent history is amazingly well done ...andthattattooholycrapahahathat'shot
...Have some unrelated fanart! I did this stuff last month and then decided never to draw people again ;_;

I know I said I'd comment after the 11th, but I thought I'd just start now! xP
@Schnabeltier Your sketches are absolutely gorgeous! I really love your style! And I think you write really well --don't put yourself down. Your fic was really awesome and I enjoyed reading it! My favourite part was definitely when they use the code!
(And thank you!! And yes, I use Copic Sketch markers. I haven't had much practice with them...>< But every picture means more practice. xP)
@4de A fantastic sketch of that image!! You did a great job with it!
@Telramko I love your fanfic! You write so well and I really enjoyed reading it! I think you've gotten their personalities through really well, as well as the way they interact with and understand one another.
@HawkseyeM1910 Your fanarts are absolutely wonderful! Your style is really cute!
@angelstar Your poem is absolutely beautiful and your oneshots are fantastic! I love how you've portrayed just how much Roy cares about Riza!
@iAmJelly I absolutely adore your fanfic. I just love how upon their first meeting, Riza already seems to have developed a trust of Roy. I love how you developed the theme of a bond and trust in one another as the fic went on!
@Yadi ina Your fanarts are really lovely! I think my favourite is definitely the one with the whole family --their daughter is so cute!!
@Storm Goddness Your friend's picture is absolutely awesome!!
@LadyNorbert It's a shame you couldn't finish it off in time! But I'm going to say anyway, that I finished reading Brilliancy, and well, it's pure brilliancy. Seriously, I loved it just as much as I loved Flowers of Antimony. Throughout the stories you keep personalities intact and you not only show the amazing bond between Roy and Riza, but the bond that they also share with the rest of the team. I have now started reading The Game of Three Generals and I can already tell that it's going to be just as amazing!
@First Moon Fantastic Fanmix! I don't like Amy Winehouse or Glee, but the majority of the songs are great, I particuarly like the choice "Kings & Queens ~ 30 Seconds to Mars" and both of the Muse songs you put on there!
@Jacksparrow Your fics are absolutely awesome! I love how you've portrayed their "togetherness" as well as their deep understanding of each other in both fics--and I love how fast paced "Only Together" is. It reads so well! (And thank you!)
@xUltimate Shieldx Absolutely superb fanart! I just love Riza's expression!! I love the King and Queen theme and the chess board themed background! Very fitting indeed!
@Dark Winds That cake is the epitome of WIN.
@HawkseyeM1910 Wow!! I read the first chapter of your friend's story and it seems really awesome! I definitely have to keep up with this one!
@Bay Alexison Both of your fanfics are an absolute pleasure to read! All through the first one I had a constant grin on my face and the second one is brilliant because I think you've capture how they would/did worry when separated. And I agree with your reason for loving Royai --I love that, too!
@Pannan Incredible fanart!! I absolutely adore them! I love how it seems they're in battle, back-to-back --which I find is really symbolic of how they do have each other's back! And the colouring is fantastic!! And I totally agree with your reason as to why Royai is awesome --less fanservice, the better.
@RoyRizaFan I just love your picture!! That's a really awesome and creative idea! It shows really well the celebratory mood! (And thank you! )
@A Pierrot's Aria Uuugh, you stick to digital colouring from now on!!! xDDDD!!
v ETA: @lizzard_2010 Your picture is soooooo adorable!! I love it!! And welcome to the board --I'm glad you could join us for Royai Day!
