I do want to see more of Roy in the coming chapters (as it appears to be the case) as Roy's goals just seem to more wider in scope - as his goals concern that of improving not only the military, but the military state of Amestris and it's relations with other countries. I do believe that Ed and Al's goals are noble, but they are selfish in a way as well as they're trying to right a wrong that they committed themselves.
Man I must be annoying with this.. but since I'm allowed to say this kind of stuff in this topic and just hate it when I see facts neglected.. I shall restate my opinion again
True, Ed & Al's goal may be selfish, as Kale stated above BUT it is also notable that they're still trying to save the world too, remember when Kimbley put Al two choices: he can either get his body back or try to save the world but Al refused to choose between those two options. The result: they're spending their time and energy not only for a 'selfish' but also for a selfless
goal, which is like doing double-work. But then again I won't got that far as to weigh exactly who does more noble work - the Elric brothers (in case of this topic Ed) or Mustang, coz that'd be ridiculous. Instead I'll draw the line and say simply that both have their nobility and both are hardworking in their own way. Just for the record guys
Oh as far as the poll is concerned: I guess I could give Ed as a love interest a shot, seing as Mustang isn't really my type (laid-back, ladies man; real or not). But even if the love relationship with Ed wouldn't work out I'd love to have him as a friend, because I trully admire him AND believe it or not, I'd love to have Roy as an uncle. I can so picture him that way. When I'd visit him he'd be all: ˝Don't worry if the boys'll put you in trouble, just call your uncle Roy and he'll settle the problems right away^˝ (Just like he was when he met Winry)
