That is, if that's ok with you!! XDD It's your phrase, so you have the choice! biggrin.gif
And, of course, we'll ask everyone's opinion, since others might have some other ideas also. happy.gif


Really? XDDDDD I'd be honored! It's perfectly fine with me! But yes, let's give others a chance to contribute their ideas.
Tombow
@Amethyst Sunset - Great!! ^^ Then we'll ask everyone, but yeah, Riza: "Get your own morally bankrupt Colonel!! He's mine!!" is officially the candidate for this year's Royai Day theme!! biggrin.gif

@Triss Hawkeye HAH I laughed at the picture! Nice work! Riza: muwahahah *loading gun*

Awww, thanks for all the support, guys. happy.gif
Tombow
@Amethyst Sunset - Good luck with your freshman University life at UP!! happy.gif


Ok good, so far people likes the proposed theme for the Royai Day celebration!! laugh.gif
I say, let's wait for a few days to see how others feel. ^^

PU? Wow, my university stinks! Get it? XD *is shot and turned into charcoal for bad puns* Heh, thanks. It's going to be a real change - going from a private, Catholic all-girls' school to a public, co-ed college that doesn't give a hoot as to whether you're Muslim or atheist.

Now I really feel honored. biggrin.gif
Zachelle
Amethyst goodluck on your freshman life!! Though I know half of what you're feeling now, I'm also an incoming college freshman, but mine is just a small Catholic College not the University of the Philippines tongue.gif

Oh yeah and Tombow, can I ask a favor?
I would like to see last year's Royai Day Album.. there's one, right?
Tombow
@Zachelle - You are on the right track!! I was just searching for last year's Album. biggrin.gif
I found the one that was before the final edition with additional stuff added on, (although the links are also messed up, and I need to correct those), so... I'm going to edit this again, and put it up later. ^^
Amethyst Sunset
Zachelle - Good luck to you too! Look out world, here we come! XD

Tombow - I'd like to see it too! biggrin.gif And you two reminded me...I still have to work on my Royai stuff! XD Must...get to work! I've been slacking off in a way - I'm transcribing episode 37 right now, and it's hard when you play back parts several times just to get the dialog right.
Zachelle
Thanks Tombow!! Take your time editing the links and thank you again!!
I would really like to see the album.. happy.gif

Amethyst I'm also really lazy to get a Royai fic done for Royai day. tongue.gif And good luck on transcribing episode 37!! My dvd now is really scratched from playing parts over and over again, even to the point that it jumps certain episodes XD
Tombow
@Amethyst Sunset - Aww.. thanks for doing that!! hugs!! happy.gif

@Zachelle - Yes, I would love to have your Royai fanfic for the Royai Day!!

We have plenty of Royai fanfics and nice Royai fanarts for last year's Royai Day.
I'll work on fixing the links and bringing the Album. ^^
Amethyst Sunset
Zachelle - Thanks, I'm already at the part where Havoc meets Catherine Armstrong, and it's so funny how Havoc imagines her to be a female version of Armstrong, complete with muscles. XDDDDD I kept laughing my head off and ended up missing some parts. And as I'm working with the dub, I'd like to say that this was one of the best dubbed episodes, at least in my opinion.

On a Royai-related note...I'm kind of imagining a scenario where Roy's subordinates set him up on a date with Riza...I know it's a pretty common concept in the world of fanfiction, but it never dies. XD

Tombow - It's fun. Episode 37 is my favorite, so I'm immensely enjoying it. XD And good luck with the album! biggrin.gif
N.C. StormEye
Tombow HEY! No dissing my dream school! It's University of The Philippines to you! GRRRR!!!

Amethyst-san yo! UP ka pala! I'm positively palm-treeing right now. And I'm glad the peeps like our ideal theme. biggrin.gif

Liz I CAN'T BELIEVE YOU HAVE A ROY PLUSHIE! Gimme a Roy plushie and all my bad dreams will disappear. *sigh* However in the Philippines you can buy a 6-pack of FMA pencil-toppers for about a dollar, or slightly more anyway.

ika07 and paca ELOW! Randomly greets you.

Anyway, am loving the Royai art! Whoot! Hot hot! V. cute. Am in hyper mode right now so forgive me. biggrin.gif

Happy Birthday (belated) to Arakawa-sensei and Roy Mustard! biggrin.gifbiggrin.gif:D:D:D:D Arakawa-sensei, PWEEEEEEZ...ROYAI next chappy for goody bag!! biggrin.gif

XOXO,
Stormie

<please move the link to your sig space>
Amethyst Sunset
Stormie - Aye. A UP freshie is me. XD And...palm-treeing? ^^; *clueless stare*

BTW, I read a fic of yours. I can't write humor to save my life, so it's mostly drama/romance for me. Yes, I can get real mushy and cheesy. Like a very bad female Nicholas Sparks. XD

I wonder how much a Roy plushie would cost in Philippine pesos? o_o Unless it's fake, it won't come cheap.

All right! You rock my socks, Tombow. biggrin.gif I'm feeling even more INSPIRED! Especially since I posted the last part of episode 37 on the anime quotes thread...it was fun watching them freak out about warehouse 13. XDDDD Especially the part where they were all freaking out but Riza was as calm as ever...
Tombow
@Amethyst Sunset - Yes, yes, I hope so!! I hope everyone will get inspired to contribute to this year's Royai Day!! ^^
Last year, besides these original works, throughout the Royai Day weekend we posted lots of pics and doujin scanlations and other Royai stuff. It was so much fun!! ^^

BTW, thanks so much for doing the transcript for episode 13 and episode 37 on FMA Anime Script/Scene Search thread!! That was awesome!! *hugs*!! happy.gif

OMG, Tombow and Amethyst Sunset! You guys rock for putting those lists/transcripts together! You deserve Pie!!

Oh, last night I was watching one of my favorite movies-- Clerks 2-- and I thought about how much the ending song reminded me of something that would be good for my RoiAi fanmix. It's called "Everything" and it's by Alanis Morrisette. (Just the chorus made me go ROIAI! DAMN!)

I changed the 'gender' of some of the lyrics since I thought they made more sense coming from Roy's point of view. Face it-- Roy CAN be a jerk. He CAN be a womanizer. He DEFINITELY is closed down about a number of painful things in his past. However, when someone loves you, they can see past all of that crap into how perfect the good things really are. And Riza has been there since the beginning, and she'll continue to be there for him. He truly is "everything" for her, good and bad. And as much as they try and resist, I think there is a true connection between them.


"EVERYTHING" -- Alanis Morrisette (from the movie Clerks 2)

I can be an a**hole of the grandest kind
I can withhold like it's going out of style
I can be the moodiest baby and you've never met anyone
Who is as negative as I am sometimes

I am the wisest [man] you've ever met.
I am the kindest soul with whom you've connected.
I have the bravest heart that you've ever seen
And you've never met anyone
Who's as positive as I am sometimes.

You see everything, you see every part
You see all my light and you love my dark
You dig everything of which I'm ashamed
There's not anything to which you can't relate
And you're still here


I blame everyone else, not my own partaking
My passive-aggressiveness can be devastating
I'm terrified and mistrusting
And you've never met anyone as,
As closed down as I am sometimes.

What I resist, persists, and speaks louder than I know
What I resist, you love, no matter how low or high I go


I'm the funniest [man] that you've ever known
I'm the dullest [man] that you've ever known
I'm the most gorgeous [man] that you've ever known
And you've never met anyone
Who is as everything as I am sometimes

You see everything, you see every part
You see all my light and you love my dark
You dig everything of which I'm ashamed
There's not anything to which you can't relate
And you're still here
Amethyst Sunset
Liz - That is SO Royai! happy.gif I shall hunt for that song. And I like Alanis Morrisette, that's another bonus.

Yes, Roy can be a jerk. But he's our favorite jerk...and Riza's, too. <3

And, no problem, doing those transcripts was fun. *cough*ILIKEAPPLEPIE*cough* XD

Even though he is "morally bankrupt..." laugh.gif

I think I'll make an apple pie tonight. I'm in the mood to make pie. I made Cherry pie last week, and red velvet cake over the weekend...

Mmmmm.... PIE!

What's even FUNNIER about this song is that in the movie Clerks 2, the main character (who IS kind of a jerk...) falls for his boss, even though he is engaged to someone else. This song plays at the end when he breaks off the engagement and proposes to the other woman... XD

****

And URGHHHH... MORE!! This is proof that I have issues and need professional help.

Just downloaded this song by Jason Mraz the toher day, and once again, I was inspited to add it to my fanmix.

I looked closer at the lyrics when I kept hearing the theme of "I won't hesitate... this is my destiny... I'm Yours." Brought back memories of episode 39 or the anime/chapter 20-something of the manga where Riza says that she acts on her own free will, and she "won't hesitate" to pull the trigger if the situation calls for it...

(So, pull the damn trigger, woman! Kiss him already! XD)


I'M YOURS -- Jason Mraz.

Well you done done me and you bet I felt it
I tried to be chill but you're so hot that I melted
I fell right through the cracks
and now I'm trying to get back
Before the cool done run out
I'll be giving it my bestest
Nothing's going to stop me but divine intervention
I reckon it's again my turn to win some or learn some

I won't hesitate no more, no more
It cannot wait, I'm yours

Well open up your mind and see like me
Open up your plans and damn you're free
Look into your heart and you'll find love love love
Listen to the music of the moment maybe sing with me
A lá peaceful melody
It's your God-forsaken right to be loved love loved love loved

So I won't hesitate no more, no more
It cannot wait I'm sure
There's no need to complicate
Our time is short
This is our fate, I'm yours
paca
Chapter 71 is here people Yay!!! *__* .... the only thing I am saying is that Riza appears!

Tombow
Thank you, Paca!!! *goes to read*
I'll be back later!!!

I'll be back later after taking care of chapter 71 spoiler party thread. ^^

HELLO PEOPLE OF THE UNIVERSE!! I am letting out my announcement for the "Royai: Twilight" competition once again. Will everybody PLEASE send me some entries! I am STAGNATING HERE!!

So once again...my rules. Edited this time.

QUOTE
Yeah, NC's first ever drawing challenge! Inspired by Twilight, New Moon, and Eclipse, the awesome series of books by Stephanie Meyer.

I'm issuing a challenge! I will be creating a TIIIIIIIIINY Royai album in my Photobucket and Multiply accounts (not to be revealed until the submissions are, err, submitted). The theme is: Royai - Twilight. Do your best to create Vampire!Roy in a steamy situation with Anything Goes!Riza. Rating should not go beyond PG-16.

Basically, if any of you have read the book, then try to channel that into your artwork. If not, just cook up a really cool AU. It may be really too early for Halloween, but it's a pretty good challenge, and a cool way to celebrate the return of so many of the old crew.

So, you up for it?

The winning entry will be posted on the thread, and I'll even defy The Grammar Police and wear it on my siggy proudly for a month or so just to brag about how good you are.

So...are you ready for this?
I even have a quote to inspire you...

QUOTE:

I turned to see him spring lightly up the porch steps, his hair windblown from running. He pulled me into his arms at once, just like he had in the parking lot, and kissed me again.

This kiss frightened me. There was too much tension, too strong an edge to the way his lips crushed mine—like he was afraid we had only so much time left to us."

ENDQUOTE

So for all die-hard Twilight fans, die-hard Royai fans, and EdWin fans who just happen to be perusing the Royai district (yes, will be releasing "EdWin: Twilight" challenge too. All the sweeter since Ed is, well, Ed. Ward. Hee hee!), GET CRACKING.

If you can draw.

Of course, I will not leave out those who can write. If you can satisfy me by creating an AU, semi-AU, etc. fanfic that fills the category above, I will be happy to include it in my devART as a winner.

So remember, two categories: Drawing and Fanfic. Comic Strips Allowed...DUH. I love comics. biggrin.gif

The Awards are:

(Obviously)

First Place
Second Place
Third Place

and

Cutest Picture
Best Costumes
Most Romantic Scenario
Funniest Picture

aaaaand...

Creative Use of Chibi (Not sure who will try that.)
Okay, posted my comp details again, as a reminder. Anyhoo...

Tombow I wasn't really insulted. Just defending Philippine pride. Royai Day is a day before Philippine Independence Day. Did you know that originally it was supposed to be July Four, like the Americans, because they let our country go on July 4, officially? This was intentional, and you can figure out why. But we Filipinos have more pride...June 12th! Rockahooza! biggrin.gif

Amethyst-san "palm-tree" = Envy. The Homunculi. With green hair. *ehem*

Liz I wuv the song to PIECES!! Especially the chorus.

You see everything, you see every part
You see all my light and you love my dark
You dig everything of which I'm ashamed
There's not anything to which you can't relate
And you're still here


I’ve got a Royai song…this one is rock-ish…and I think it’s Riza-ish too, when Roy comes back all Emo from the North. *siiiigh*

(In bold are the lyrics that apply a lot.)

You’ll Be Safe Here by Rivermaya

Nobody knows
Just why we’re here
Could it be fate
Or random circumstance
At the right place
At the right time
Two roads intertwine

And if the universe conspired
To meld our lives
To make us
Fuel and fire
Then know
Where ever you will be
So too shall I be


Chorus:

Close your eyes
Dry your tears
‘Coz when nothing seems clear
You’ll be safe here

From the sheer weight
Of your doubts and fears
Weary heart
You’ll be safe here


Remember how we laughed
Until we cried
At the most stupid things
Like we were so high
But love was all that we were on
We belong

And though the world would
Never understand
This unlikely union
And why it still stands
Someday we will be set free.
Pray and believe


Chorus:

When the light disappears
And when this world’s insincere
You’ll be safe here

When nobody hears you scream
I’ll scream with [for] you
You’ll be safe here

Save your eyes
From your tears
When everything’s unclear
You’ll be safe here

From the sheer weight
Of your doubts and fears
Wounded heart

When the light disappears
And when this world’s insincere
You’ll be safe here

When nobody hears you scream
I’ll scream with [for] you
You’ll be safe here

In my arms
Through the long cold night
Sleep tight
You’ll be safe here

When no one understands
I’ll believe you

You’ll be safe,
You’ll be safe
You’ll be safe here
Put your heart in my hands
You’ll be safe here...

You'll Be Safe Here - you can listen to it here. biggrin.gif Feel the power of Pinoy music! We're a country that SINGS!

Anyway, that's enough plugging my country. Yay! Chapter 71! Riza's in it? YESH!!

XOXO,
Stormie
Jo21
yeah... chapter 71...
Amethyst Sunset
Liz - Yes, even if he is morally bankrupt and has a god-complex. XD Apple pie! And hmm...I should see that movie. ^^

Riza's got her finger on the trigger, but she isn't pulling yet...PULL IT ALREADY! XDDDDD

Paca, Tombow and Triss - I'm not yet done with the rest of the chapters! AAAAIIIIIEEEEE! XD Must...finish!

Stormie - We do have a lot of pride. XD Actually, this year there'll be no classes or work on the 11th so they can turn the holiday into a long weekend. As you know, our president is very fond of long weekends. XD No wonder we go to school on the 12th.

Oh yeah. ^^; My least favorite Homunculus. Sorry 'bout that, Envy fans. ^^;;;

And I have that song on my iPod. biggrin.gif I love it. Ever since it was released, I went nuts for the song, especially since I'm already nuts over Rivermaya. Must...write...SONGFIC! *digs through iTunes for some Royai-ish songs* Although this one caught me when it came up on shuffle...it's "Hanging By A Moment" by Lifehouse. Yes, Stormie, I shall follow with more OPM (Original Philippine Music). *cue patriotic music here*

Desperate for changing, starving for truth
I'm closer to where I started, I'm chasing after you

I'm falling even more in love with you
Letting go of all I've held on to
I'm standing here until you make me move
I'm hanging by a moment here with you


Forgetting all I'm lacking, completely incomplete
I'll take your invitation, you take all of me now


I'm falling even more in love with you
Letting go of all I've held on to
I'm standing here until you make me move
I'm hanging by a moment here with you
I'm living for the only thing I know
I'm running and not quite sure where to go
And I don't know what I'm diving into

Just hanging by a moment here with you

There's nothing else to lose, there's nothing else to find
There's nothing in the world that can change my mind
There is nothing else
There is nothing else
There is nothing else

Desperate for changing, starving for truth
I'm closer to where I started, I'm chasing after you

I'm falling even more in love with you
Letting go of all I've held on to
I'm standing here until you make me move
I'm hanging by a moment here with you
I'm living for the only thing I know
I'm running and not quite sure where to go
And I don't know what I'm diving into
Just hanging by a moment here with you

Just hanging by a moment
Hanging by a moment
Hanging by a moment
Hanging by a moment here with you
N.C. StormEye
Ne, My school starts on the 13th. biggrin.gif

Yes, PINOY PRIDE! WHOO! MUSIC. BTW, I love Lifehouse, but You and Me is my personal fave.

LIFEHOUSE LYRICS

"You And Me"

What day is it? And in what month?
This clock never seemed so alive
I can't keep up and I can't back down
I've been losing so much time

Cause it's you and me and all other people with nothing to do
Nothing to lose
And it's you and me and all other people
And I don't know why, I can't keep my eyes off of you

All of the things that I want to say just aren't coming out right
I'm tripping on words
You've got my head spinning
I don't know where to go from here

Cause it's you and me and all other people with nothing to do
Nothing to prove

And it's you and me and all other people
And I don't know why, I can't keep my eyes off of you

There's something about you now
I can't quite figure out
Everything she does is beautiful
Everything she does is right


Cause it's you and me and all other people with nothing to do
Nothing to lose
And it's you and me and all other people
And I don't know why, I can't keep my eyes off of you
and me and all other people with nothing to do
Nothing to prove
And it's you and me and all other people
And I don't know why, I can't keep my eyes off of you

What day is it?
And in what month?
This clock never seemed so alive

The people with nothing to prove are the rest of the military gang, seeing as Roy knows they're all loyal. biggrin.gif

Oh, and more OPM. biggrin.gif

A New Tattoo by Urbandub

Great moments they pass by
If you're careless
Desperately trying to speak the words
I've been wanting to say for a long time.
Tongue tied, every time I try to talk to you
In time, I'll find the right line.

Caught a glimpse of you
I tremble every time you walk by
Hopelessly trying to find a way
To be near you, to get near you.
In my mind, plays thoughts of you all the
time
I'll find the right line

I'll bleed for you
Like a new tattoo in my heart
You'll stay permanent

Am I too late now?
Will I find a way to get to you somehow?
She's breaking me down again
She's breaking me down

Sounds like Roy huh? I haven't actually heard the song, but the lyrics are enough anyway.

A New Tattoo - Click to hear. biggrin.gif

Almost Paradise - Another OPM with sappy lyrics that are Royai all the same.

And one more before I depart. High by Barbie Almalbis and the Speaks - http://www.tristancafe.com/music/flash/high.html

D A
Will it ever be?

Bm G
I’ve tried so hard to find sweet serenity

D A
Are you still afraid?

Bm
Just close your eyes and dream
G
Feel it fade away

Chorus:
D A
Time won't flow
Bm
Everyone knows
G
When the pain fades away
D A
Dreams wont die
Bm
With tears in our eyes
G
You've got to hold your head up high
D-A-Bm
Ye...yey
G
Hold your head up high


D A
It’s taken some time
Bm G
And I’ve given up the will to change your state of mind

D A
Try and understand
Bm G
It's not so hard to see I'm just a man

Repeat Chorus

D A
Will it ever be?

Bm G
I’ve tried so hard to find sweet serenity
D A
Try and understand
Bm G
It's not so hard to see I'm just a man

Repeat Chorus

XOXO,

Zachelle
Aiiyaa! I've missed a lot already, and I've just been gone for a day >.<

Tombow thanks very much for posting the links!! You're the best!! *hugs*

Beautiful songs!! Very Royai!! Plugging of OPM music, eh? Go OPM!! woot! biggrin.gif

And uh, Yei for Chapter 71!! *starts downloading* Will be counting on your translations, Tombow XD
Kenji
I am amazed... with the amount of Royai day materials... Maybe I should contribute something too... ^.^
Perhaps I will 'contaminate' Royai day with a Malay song... XD
of course, english translation will be provided too ^.^

Keep up the good works guys... Wee~ So happy~
Amethyst Sunset
Stormie - I LOVE that song by Lifehouse. =D And yes, Pinoy pride indeed! If I knew how to play the guitar, I'd so play "High", now that you posted the chords. XD But right now I'm trying to play Chopin's Etude in E Major, Op. 10, No. 3 on piano - cookies to the first person who can guess the Royai significance of the piece. wink.gif

Zachelle - Wh00t! biggrin.gif There's always bound to be something going on here, one way or another...

Kenji - We can never have too many contributions. happy.gif

And speaking of lyric plugging...here's another one...

Take My Hand
Callalily

Your sky seems so cloudy
I can barely see a single star
Your eyes become teary
And you find yourself hiding in the dark


You are not alone
Someone's here to play your song

Take my hand
We'll fly to the sky
Close your eyes
I'm at your side
Tomorrow's gonna be just fine


Everything's been bitter
Like there was no reason to smile
Pieces of dreams have been shattered
And you feel like you're being left behind


Take my hand, close your eyes
Take my hand, close your eyes
Take my hand, close your eyes
We'll fly

Take my hand
We'll fly to the sky
I'll save you from this life
I'm at your side
Tomorrow's gonna be just fine

Well, we'd like to see your own work too. happy.gif

At least for us, yeah, college is the same as university. And I don't know yet - I'm still an incoming freshman. XD I'm not only learning Japanese for the advantages it can give me when it comes to anime and manga - it's a really interesting language...and I wasn't able to take the elective when I was in high school. T_T
Triss Hawkeye
I'm trying to teach myself Japanese, but it would be so much better if I was able to learn it at school. >_<
musical alchemist
Wow, all the lyrics and pictures, very nice. I need to get my scanner working so I can scan my works...once I can get the time to draw or write again...

Anyways...college/university life is very fun wink.gif I would learn Japanese, but Spanish seems to be more of a selling point right now. That and I already know a lot of Spanish anyways. Oh well, maybe in the next life.
Kenji
My 'contamination' for Royai Day!! XD
This is a wonderful song, sang by two singers from Indonesia...

My Heart - Irwansyah feat Acha Septriasa

Disini kau dan aku ---------------- You and me in here
Terbiasa bersama ----------------- Often we together
Menjalani kasih sayang ----------- Loving each other
Bahagia kudenganmu ------------- You gave me happiness

Pernahkah kau menguntai -------- Have you ever utter out
Hari paling indah ------------------- On the most beautiful day
Ku ukir nama kita berdua --------- We engrave our names
Di sini surga kita ------------------- Here is our heaven

Bila kita mencintai yang lain ------ When we love someone else
Mungkinkah hati ini akan tegar --- Will this love be shaken
Sebisa mungkin tak akan pernah - No matter how pain it is
Sayang ku akan hilang ------------ My love will never fade away

If u love somebody
Could we be this strong
I will fight to win
Our love will conquer all
Wouldn’t risk my love
Even just one night
Our love will stay in my heart
My heart

Pernahkah kau menguntai --------- Have you ever utter out
Hari paling indah -------------------- On the most beautiful day
Ku ukir nama kita berdua ---------- We engrave our names
Di sini surga kita -------------------- Here is our heaven

Bila kita mencintai yang lain -------- When we love someone else
Mungkinkah hati ini akan tegar ----- Will this love be shaken
Sebisa mungkin tak akan pernah --- No matter how pain it is
Sayang ku akan hilang --------------- My love will never fade away

If that link is not working, please PM me your e-mail address and I will gladly e-mail it to you... ^.^
Tombow
^^ Thanks for all the nice songs, everyone! Very lovely!! biggrin.gif

BTW, I think those could be posted on Songs For Characters And Couples In FMA also. happy.gif

@animefreak_zzz - Oh!! Thanks for more lovely pics!! Roy looks hawt in those pics!! biggrin.gif
OT: About the difference between the college and university... in U.S., college is a single school (college,) and if you have many colleges withing one school system, then that's an University. College also could be a 2 year community college with Associate degrees. Otherwise, college is (usually) 4 years with BA or BS degree. University could includes, beside colleges, schools for post Graduate degrees, such as Masters and Doctors. ^^

And, about this year's Royai Day general theme:
Still solicitating opinions about the suggested general theme for this year's Royai thread Royai Day Celebration.. Which is...
"Get your own morally bankrupt Colonel!! He is mine!! - Riza"
(This theme is courtesy of the original phrase by Amethyst Sunset. ^^ )

So far, we got many positives for this theme, but if anyone has some other theme suggestions, please feel free to suggest!! happy.gif
Amethyst Sunset
Kenji - wow, it's a beautiful song. biggrin.gif

Tombow - Yeah, I also posted the songs I contributed on that thread, thanks for the heads-up. And even though we usually use college and university interchangeably, we also use those definitions. Like for example, I will study in the University of the Philippines, in the College of Social Science and Philosophy.

Heh, I already have an idea for that theme. XD I might have to reuse an OC of mine from my last Royai fic...
ika07
@Liz, Kenji, Amethyst sunset- Great songs! They all are so royai! *squee* happy.gif

Anyways, I just read chapter 71!

[spoiler]Whew, Thank goodness riza wasn't hurt...(well, she was, but I meant something really serious) I hope this knowledge will cause her to become more important in the plot! Now, it's sort of like Roy is more of a hostage, (kinda??) since Pride (I still lol at the fact that it's still just a little kid tongue.gif ) threatened her if this info gets to other people, they will get hurt. I'm so psyched at the fact that Riza got to be the first one in the series (out of the good guys wink.gif ) who figured out who Pride was. I'm also hoping for more Royai moments from now on. *squee~~* ><[/spoiler]

For royai day celebration, I think I'll contribute a royai fanart or something. And maybe couple of songs that are somewhat royai related. Sadly, I don't write fanfics, although I'd like to give it a try, I don't have the time or enough confidence for it. sad.gif

Well, keep on loving royai, everyone!! ^^

EDIT: Thanks Tombow, for finding the last year's royai day album for us! I had forgotten all about it up till now! (Yes, I was a lurker then, so I know everything that went on the royai day last year. tongue.gif )
Princess Blade
Hey all, about that post I made last month about the Cherry Blossom Fest in San Francisco -- I didn't have my costume on because it fell apart, so I don't really have any pics for you. sad.gif Also, there was quite an absence of Fullmetal characters. Sorry about that. -.-'

FanimeCon is coming up, and I definitely will have lots of pics from that because 1) I'll have my costume done and 2) my groupies and I are attending one of the Fullmetal gatherings. smile.gif

---

Chapter 71 was really interesting, as far as the Riza-ness is concerned. XD *fangirl squee*

---

And, if you all don't mind, I'd like to share some lyrics. I'm not sure how relevant they are to Roy & Riza, but I think it could fit:

[What Took You So Long by Emma Bunton]

Oh, talk to me, can't you see
I'll help you work things out.
Oh, don't wanna be your enemy
And I don't want to scream and shout.

'Cos, baby, I believe in honesty
And then be strong and true.
I shouldn't have to say now, baby,
That I believe in you.

(chorus)
What took you so long?
What took you all night?
What took you forever to see I'm right?
You know, I treat you so good;
I make you feel fine.
You know, I'll never give it up this time.
Oh, no, no.

Oh, you touched my heart right from the start,
You didn't know what to say.
But, honey, I understand
When you take my hand everything's OK.

'Cos, baby, I believe reality,
It's never far away.
I've had enough, so listen, baby,
I've got something to say.

What took you so long?
What took you all night?
What took you forever to see I'm right?
You know, I treat you so good;
I make you feel fine.
You know, I'll never give it up this time.

What took you so long? (What took you so long?)
What took you all night? (What took you all night?)
What took you forever to see I'm right?
You know, I treat you so good; (I treat you so good)
I make you feel fine. (I make you feel fine)
You know, I'll never give it up this time.
Oh, no, no.

(bridge)

Baby, I believe in honesty
And then be strong and true.
I shouldn't have to say now, baby,
That I believe in you.

What took you so long?
What took you all night?
What took you forever to see I'm right?
You know, I treat you so good;
I make you feel fine.
You know, I'll never give it up this time.

What took you so long? (What took you so long?)
What took you all night? (What took you all night?)
What took you forever to see I'm right?
You know, I treat you so good; (I treat you so good)
I make you feel fine. (I make you feel fine)
You know, I'll never give it up this time.

What took you so long? (What took you so long?)
What took you all night? (What took you all night?)
What took you forever to see I'm right?
You know, I treat you so good; (I treat you so good)
I make you feel fine. (I make you feel fine)
You know, I'll never give it up this time.
Oh, no, no.
Amethyst Sunset
Ika07 - I'd love to see your work and all your contributions! And yes, we'll continue loving Royai. How can we not? wink.gif

Princess Blade - 'Tis all right. ^^ And good luck with that next con! I'm hunting for a good place to find cosplay costumes where I live, and checking out the scheds for the next cons. And, great song! happy.gif These days, just about any love song can remind me of Royai, even the unusually cheesy ones. XD
Tombow
@ika07 - Your fanarts for the Royai Day will be nice!! ^^

@Princess Blade - Lovely song!! I think that's so Royai!! ^^
And, sorry to hear that yourcostume fell apart for the Cherry Blossom Fest!!
But, FanimeCon sounds exciting!! Hope you're gonna have a nice time there!! ^^

@Amethyst Sunset - I find some of the cheesy songs go very well with fluffy Royai fanfics. tongue.gif

Thought on Riza in chapter 71... EEEiiiik!!! Pride, get your shadowy tiny hands off Riza!!!! blink.gif
CodenameElizabeth
To everyone who posted the really great "international" song lyrics:

Any suggestions on how to um, "obtain" these tunes?
(I don't want to say the "D" word since I'm not sure if it is forbidden by forum protocol.)

I love hearing music from different countries (my one friend recently turned me onto Romanian pop music. OMG AWESOME!!!!) so I'd realy like to hear the OPM and Indonesian stuff...

Oh, and Callalilly and Emma Bunton-- they are form the UK, right?
(Wasn't Emma Bunton "Baby Spice" of the Spice Girls?) laugh.gif
Kenji
I did posted a link for my song... happy.gif

QUOTE
The song can be downloaded'obtained' from here
CodenameElizabeth
LOL I've overall been having trouble keepin' up with this thread due to, um, convention business... and tons of O/T at work.

Thx for re-linking, and I'll see if I can "obtain" it via that site. XD
