Full Version: For Ling X Ran Fan Fans!

Colette
All right, here's a thread for everyone's two sexy favorite foreign characters together in one of the cutest pairings in Fullmetal Alchemist!

Before we begin, two things must be said. Leave now please if you don't like the pairing (Actually, good reasons on not liking the pairing is fine. Just be prepared to debate!) or if you don't know who the characters are. Ling and Ran Fan are manga only characters and about half of FMA's fandom doesn't know they exist. That's not fine. Just don't post "who are they?????" here.

Now that that's done, let's begin! ^^

Offical art of the two:

Notice how Ling's the king...
And Ran Fan's the queen ^^

MeLRizA
Thanks for promoting my crappy artwork Summoner Colette!! *glompx* and also for those fanart and official images!! *saves*

If Ling and RanFan appeared in the anime too, I think they will be as popular as EdWin.. but Royai rules! I wished they did.. sad.gif

I like the relationship they share. It's almost like Roy's and Riza's but in a slightly more open way.. XD It's so obvious in the manga that Ling has feelings for her!!
paca
laugh.gif Oh! Lot's of pics.!!!!
Yes, Lings feeling are very notorious rolleyes.gif .... speacially in the lasts chapters ...with all the Greed "problem"!! -jijijijijjiij-
It's a shame taht this characters aren't in the anime .....
Nil-chan
Yay!! LingXRanfan thread! hehe, thankie Summoner Colletter! long live the Xingese Empire!!

Thanks so much for the pics!!!

So.. who else is angsting on the Ling=Greed thing? Honestly, i think they're going to be ok. Arakawa-sensei isn't that mean. I mean, Gring yelled at Wrath for underestimating humans and said Ling keeps fighting to overthrow him. Ling seems pretty strong, metally and physically, He kicked Envy's sorry butt, and as seen when fighting Wrath, had an amazing desire to survive and protect the people he loves. (aka, RanFan. X3) I do worry about it, though. but the angstyness is good. Makes their love all the more beautiful, right?
paca
@summer colette: xD you are right.
I also think that Ling is (maybe) the one who would kill wrath....he uses a sword (very well!)and if we think that :
lust --fire
greed--hot oil
Wrath---------------> be dismemberd alive!! BinGO ( a sword can do that!!!) I hope to see Ling killing Wrath!! >_<
No_One
Yes!! LingxRan Fan!! I love them! *saves pics* I'm going to frequnt here as much as I do the Royai thread! biggrin.gif

@Summoner Colette I havn't found any good fics latly but I did write one awile back, I'm not quite ready to post it yet...

I have a few pics that haven't been posted here yet.
[attachmentid=7356] <--this is a cover to a doujinshi that I have on my computer. I could put up the rest if you want. Here's the back-->[attachmentid=7357]
Here's some LingxRan Fan, Royai, AlxMei, and EdWin

@paca I sure hope your right.
Colette
No_One, you are my HERO now! That site is awesome and so is the cover and such : D
paca
@No_One : I like those a lot ^^!!
*I will look for more some pics*

happy.gif You are Welcome. I'm very glad you like them.

OK I'm going to try to start a conversation here:
Which do you perfer:
Ran Fan or Lan Fan?
Rin or Ling?
paca
I prefer "Ling" and "Ran Fan" laugh.gif

Look!:
IPB Image
Colette
I prefer Ling and Lan Fan oddly >.>

Oh, I started a photobucket of my OTPs. LingxLan Fan is there, of course.

http://s145.photobucket.com/albums/r208/Ar...Ps/LingxRanFan/

Just don't lurk outside the LingxLan Fan section and you'll be okay xD
Nil-chan
hehe, that site is like.... ship heaven. happy.gif

I like Ling/RanFan. Rin is to much of a girl name , i think, and LanFan doesn't sound that good.
Chiyo
Hmm, maybe we could name the pair using their homeland name instead?

I can get into this pair, I think Ran Fan is a great character and I hope its not too long till we see her again. Cheers for all the fanarts and such.
Nepharski
Never fear. I only bludgeon fan pairings. Canon relationships are fine.

Oh, hum, gee, looks like a new form of sexuality came out. I see that so many times. I wonder how it will be in smut fics...Sex between canon characters would be okay, but sex bewteen cannons would require much more lube. Fandom, you amaze me.

Oh wow!

So many awesome LingxRanFan pics! ohmy.gif

All I have to controbute is this lil' doodle I did today..




^.^'
Nil-chan
Gasp! It's Lain! *hugs* Glad you're here! *i didn't realize it was you...*


@Paca: Oh, wow, many pics. Thanks for sharing!

I really hope we see more of Ling/Ranfan next chapter. We haven't seen them since before the Ishbal flashback...
Juicy Toot
Hi Nil-chan! biggrin.gif *Hugs back*

Yep,it's me Lain. happy.gif My name is Juicy Toot because Lain was already taken. ;-;

*Back to Ling/RanFan*

Yeah,I also hope we see more of Ling and RanFan next chapter.It's been so long...
Lucrezia
I think I may actually go mad if they don't turn up soon. I don't wanna lose my mind ><
paca
@Juicy T: Nice chibi drawing! happy.gif

Ling/Ran Fan must appera in the next chapters!!! Dx!!!

(Stupid question!):Why is Ling always fainting????
Colette
Welcome to the forums Lain!

paca, he's plainly in it for the free food xP

Oh, and would anybody be against me adding AlxMei to this thread? The whole Xing aspect of it ties in, and the couple isn't popular to be on it's own thread wise...LingxRan Fan would still be the focus, of course, but....
Juicy Toot
Thank you for the welcome Summoner Colette!

Ooh!I'd love it if you would add AlxMei!That would force me into making more AlxMei pics. tongue.gif

But LingxRanFan would still be the main focus of course! biggrin.gif
GS4Life
I found a pretty cool video, though it just uses pictures from the manga

http://youtube.com/watch?v=jPKdd5U-qGc

There is also a picture that I don't think I saw posted that was drawn by MeLRizA. It's pretty cute, sorry if it's a repost.

http://ic1.deviantart.com/fs12/i/2006/305/..._by_MeLRizA.png



No_One
@GS4Life You beat me! I love that MMV.

And Yes lets add AlMei to this topic! Then it'll just be zomg awsome!

If Ling or Ran Fan is not in the new chapter I'll just flip! Unless there's Royai...or AlMei.
Nekokitty
I was looking through your photobucket with Al x Mei pics and you put a pic I drew there and one I made. OMG, Thankyou I didn't think anyone actually liked pictures I made! X3
Anyways I admit I love the Ling x Ranfan pairing too. I just haven't made any pictures with them yet. T_T
Colette
Well duh, I love your art! The EdxArmony pictures are adorable as well. So was the Ran Fan picture you colored! ^^;

AlxMei pictures

AlxMei community
Nekokitty
Wow, thanks Summoner-Colette, didn't think anyone liked my artwork that much. I was gonna draw a Ling x Ranfan pic but I couldn't get inspired.
And there should be an Al x Mei thread here, that's a really adorable pairing. ^^
Colette
So, MeLRiZa, any luck on that majestic AlxMei picture I saw earlier?
MeLRizA
@ SC: You mean the AlxMei pic I took with the chibi Roy and Riza figurines? Sadly, not yet.. I will do it on thursday - when my exams are officially over.. Ahh.. Can't wait to go back to the good old days of MeLxTabletxPhotoshop. tongue.gif

AlxMei is such a sweet pairing. I <3 the beginning of sweet young romance between them in times of danger and all sorts.. Aww..

@ GS4Life: ohmy.gif You flatter me!! I thought that not many people knew I drew that..



I can't wait to know what happens to Ling and RanFan in the later part of the series. Ling is now Greed and RanFan will be getting an automail soon. I want to know how their expressions will be when they meet each other..
Hmm.. What if Al meets Mei at North? They are heading there anyway..
Colette
I think Al will meet Mei~

Also, I just had a thought; Ran Fan and Fu were really dressed for warmth when we last saw them, right? What if they went North to get automail there, since automail there is apparently grand? (And if it's not freezing on your skin, it might not be hot either, and they live in a hot climat...)

And I have a theory that since Winry may be going North, Greed might be the homunculus to follow her, since they need to keep tabs on her. If they may both be going North, they may run into each other...
MeLRizA
@ SC: Hmm.. You may be right. But RanFan is still with Dr.Knoxx, I have a hunch that she might head for Risembool to meet Pinako. I could be wrong tongue.gif My theories always fail.

As promised.. I finished it..
No_One
@Mel That is the cutest LingxRanfan pic I've ever seen. It makes me happy =D

I was going to post my icon bases but Arumei already posted the alxmei comm. and they're there. oh well I'll repost. =)
Also I love wub.gif that theory! They all meet up in the North. What could be more climactic?

Hope I uploaded them all...Check here if you want, I might have missed some.

Thank you for starting this thread Summoner Colette! As much as people may enjoy Royai, I think that the LingRan pairing needs a little more love. (Well, a hell of a lot more love for that matter considering how many pages the Royai thread has.) Thanks for uploading all the fan-art as well.

Melriza: Lovely artwork!
Funderful
Melriza, You have very good drawing skills! biggrin.gif

And Summoner Colette, thanks for sharing those.
I love 'em all (except mabye that third last one huh.gif , but it's okay)! tongue.gif
I'm a sucker for all the Canon pairings.
Nekokitty
Wow, thanks for sharing all those lovely pics with us. It must have taken forever to collect them.
You can have this pic if you want, I drew it myself, I was actually inspired to draw this pairing....
I might redraw it and color it someday, who knows....
zonkiethegreat
Hey! Well they are part of the new anime now! I can't wait for the series to continue showing us Ling X RanFan! They r so cute!
kkg22104
Woah, didn't even know this thread existed, it's been dead for like 2 years...anyway thanks for bumping it up zonkie tongue.gif

Ling and RanFan are so adorable, can't wait to see how the new anime portrays them happy.gif
RizaXRoy
RanFan is so cool in the FMA:B!! Whenever Ed talks bad about Ling, RanFan just kicks his @$$. RanFan looks like has an overprotective over Ling..laugh.gif Another nice pairing ya! Can't wait to see them in upcoming chapters!!
zonkiethegreat
He he...your welcome! I'm looking forward to writing a fanfic in the near future of this pairing! So I'm excited to finally see them animated!
Jehan_the_Sitar
Ling and Ranfan are probably my second favorite pairing in the show/manga (after Roy/Riza), and are among my top five favorite characters. I wish we could see more of them in the manga.

I'm so happy to finally see them animated. biggrin.gif
Mindy
You guys are seriously, *seriously* awesome for finding (and creating!) so much fanart of my favorite couple. However, I have a question - see my avatar? It was a small image when I found it and I'm not sure if it's official art. I can't find it anywhere now and it doesn't seem like Arakawa's style (she has more rounded faces).

Now the "couple"... I say lightly because as much as I want the two to at least admit something for the other, it's like there a big wall in the way. I know there's the deep honor and respect (servant/royalty thing) but there was something about Ling's expression when RanFan was attacked and then his subsequent actions that hinted at a tiny bit something more.



In chapter 99, Ling is seen crying over Fuu's demise so Ling could be just be very close to his bodyguards and treats them like friends.



There is ONE thing about this couple (and others in the FMA universe) : they have all been drawn closer together as a result of the battles and will walk away with extremely committed friendships.


EDIT: Found the source of my avatar and it is a doujinshi. One that I reeaaallly want. Poo!
Mindy
A wee bump since one of the best Ling/Lanfan manga scenes just appeared in the anime. More love please <3

I definitely would like to see Wrath killed by the Lin / Greed hybrid.
I wouldn't mind see the Father get killed by Hohenheim as well. As for the rest of your suggestion, they are very nice. Greed is simply badass.
zonkiethegreat
I LOVE this pairing!!! It's probably the one Canon pairing that I really love in FMA. GreedLing hasn't really come face to face with RanFan has he?? I wonder what will happen in the next chapter. I can't wait! biggrin.gif
