- I know you've been busy, but nice to see your posts!! ^^
Nice pic!! Love the fact that it's Roy and Riza (cosplay) walking together!!!
You look good from the back also!!!
- Thanks for the nice songs!
- Hope you can write some Royai fanfics before your classes start!! ^^
Finished doing page by page summary/translation for chapter 71
For a while, I was trying to avoid doing it because with the way this chapter is, it's more of straight translations than summaries because the whole chapter is basically all conversations. But, I kept getting requests and inquiries for it, so I gave in and went ahead and did it anyway.
I just realized that there were no Roy scenes in chapter 71!!! Boooh!!
Anyway, poor Riza!! She would be scared of shadows from now on!!

And, here is Stormie's Royai Day "Twilight" drawing/fanfic/comicstrip contests:
"Royai: Twilight" competition, inspired by Twilight, New Moon, and Eclipse, the awesome series of books by Stephanie Meyer.Here is a a bit from the book:
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."
*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.)
*Submission Period: It's open for submission, now through June 8, 2007.
Winners will be announced on Royai Day, June 11, 2007.
*Winneres: First Place, Second Place, Third Place and Cutest Picture
Best Costumes, Most Romantic Scenario, Funniest Picture, and Creative Use of Chib (if any)
*Prize: Bragging rights. And, the winning entry will be featured in Stormie's siggy for a month or so just to brag about how good you are.
Actually, I have some suggestions/proposal for Stormie
- Since your Twilight contest
is actually, multiple contests with drawing/fanfic/comicstrip categories, and in itself rather a bigger event, if you like to have it as "stand alone" event and have it separately by itself, like some Mid-Summer Royai event, I think that would be better so that we can make a bigger event out of it. ^^
Please let me know how you feel about it. ^^
And, I haven't seen Starrie
for a while (kinda worried!!
) so, I'll probably go ahead and start promoting Royai Day haiku contest/flood
soon for her. ^^
