Its on a brotherly relationship. No butsechs. No omfgihateyouiwillkillj0000000. None of that. Its respect on the levels of brothership because they are so a like.

[size=3][color=#33CCFF] Um, hi, I'm new and saw your poll. Well, I'm sorta half and half on this. I mean, Roy and Ed act like they hate each other but I think deep down they really care for one another. I think Roy sees Ed maybe as a son or little brother.

yeah...and like i mentioned the 14 year age difference...
roy would get into heaps of trouble if he ever did that with ed considering ed's a minor...besides, they're relationship's a mix of father and brother....

over-protected about Ed..also..kinda like brothers...but more like
father and son.....but it does kinda seem like Ed reaLLy hates Roy a lot...
but I'm guessing he really doesn't...^^

The parental vibe is coming purely from Roy's end. He does treat Ed like a brother, but the foundation of his feelings is of the fatherly variety.

And Ed doesn't think of Roy as a parent. It's more of a peer thing. Ed doesn't look up to nor down upon Roy, instead choosing to treat him as an equal.

Anyhow, their relationship is awesome. If it was different, they would both be OOC and their interaction would suck lyke woah.

Hm. mellow.gif I have been told that I have odd views on things... do you suppose people often find my thoughts humorous...?

I suppose the 'love chain' heirarchy is somewhat... different. But it makes sense, dang it! *Shakefish*

PS/on-topic... ish--

Does anyone else think that Edward's future toddler son jumping on Roy and shouting "GUMPA!" is the cutest thing EVAR?! (I saw the most adorable fan art, and I had to mention it somewhere)

This is how I see it. Roy knew Ed's Dad. Ed's Dad never loved Ed. Ed feels depressed. Ed's Mom dies. Ed tries to resurect Mom. Ed loses appendages. Roy shows up. Roy Pities Ed. Roy doesn't show it. Roy Acts in substitution for Ed's Father...

THEREFORE!...

Roy = Ed's Dad! ph34r.gif

And Ed's first son by Winry on Roy's lap Saying "Gumpa" Is So Friggin CUTE!

I hate in when people insist that Ed and roy hate each other. They don't love each other romantically either. They just care about one another in a weird familial way. You spend enough time having to look after a person, you are going to come to care for them in some way. I don't think they'd hook up, but I do think that they have a good authority/conflict relationship, that keeps them arguing and protecting one another.

i'm with ya on the familial caring thing....

think about it...even if ed thinks of roy as a brother and not as a father, how many of you want to have butsecks with your brothers?

and for any fathers out there, what makes you think roy would want to do anything like that with his son-figure?

I'm with the father/brother thing, but I'd like to add something.

In the beginning, it's definitively a father/son relationship : Roy tries to protect and "educate" Ed, who instead tries to prove he doesn't need a father and he's already an adult. (The "adult/kid" remarsk are quite common in their dialogues through the series)
Still, Ed can't prove himself better than Roy, since he seems to be always a step ahead of him. (Ep 13 is the perfect example for this)
In Ep48 their relationship finally changes :


QUOTE
Ed is really grown up, and Roy stops acting like a father. Ed stops being irritable to him, too. They talk as equals and their farewell is a friendly farewell. So I guess in the end their relationship isn't a father/son or a big/little brother one, but they're simply friends. I love that episode (like almost EVERY episode from FMA, after all)

yEah. I agree with Cozzer.
I think I see why people see Roy Ed as a totally hate relationship, because Ed's view on a fatherly figure was disastrously marred when the bastard Hohenheim left them. Now I think he's kind of afraid to have this person who is in no way harming him whatsoever, and is doing everything in his power to help them, get closer to him and his brother because he's been hurt before. It's kind of like when someone has been beat often, everytime someone raises their hand they flinch, it's a reflex, not a conscious reaction. So, the best way to "retaliate" from Roy's fatherly behavior is by being a smart ass.

Also, the fact that he is in his adolescent years adds to it, a hormonal boy doesn't act sweet to any authority figure, and Roy's not going to sit around and let this kid kick insults in his face is he? After all, he is Colonel -I suppose Brigadier General now- Roy Mustang, Hero of the Eastern Rebellion, right? (Although I have NO idea whatsoever what being a war hero has to do with that). Right? lol..

Yeah, and Cozzer made a good insight. Ed and Roy's "hate" *cough cough* relationship just grew into a little friendship. Sure, Ed likes to ridicule Roy, and people like to judge him and all, but still. It became platonicized! *Looking up to see if that is a word*
