@Tombow: In this days I will start some scanlation happy.gif. Your translation[spoiler]are closer to the ones in zomgfta lol[/spoiler] Thankssssss~~~for the summary of teh chapter! wink.gif
Csakuras translations

@Kenji: Poor you! Computers are evil sometimes!

@Sunset: An anime/manga club? That sounds great! You are lucky!

@SHR: *glomps* Hi!!!!!! We missed you! <3 They are alredy talking and walking! They grow so fast, don't they? Is so good to hear that the three of you are fine happy.gif. Did you like chapter 72? Isn't it great happy.gif

@SMtofu: Congratulation! Your comic is cute happy.gif...

@Stormie: Is school killing you? Try to survive!!!!! Fight against it!!!! OoO!

@Jo21: Hi!!! *waves*

Have you ever read this explanation about Riza's tattoo?
It's deep and interesting^.



I am supposed to eb in my English class by now >___> but I am here! Wiiiiiiiiiii!!! Taking care of my sister *note that I'm not lazy xD*

*runs away*
Tombow
@Paca - That analysis of Riza's tattoo is sooo interesting!! And, it's well researched!! Thank you for bringing it here!!! happy.gif And, hope cSakuras can finish her translations soon!! ^^

@Stormie - Aww. Good luck with all your study!! And, come back when you get some break..
We'll miss you, but we'll manage. happy.gif

@Amethyst Sunset - It's neat that your Uni has anime/manga club!! That's awesome!! biggrin.gif
(Spread more Royai!!! XDD)

@Kenji - I hope you can get your computer fixed soon!!

@ika07 - Yeah, that was fun!!! happy.gif

@Zachelle - Yeah, I'm pretty pleased with how my page summary came out for this chapter. ^^ So far I got ahead and solved the "riddle," for the chapter title. ^^ (I hope all other translators can catch it, tho.. the title has some nice deeper meanings..) And, overall the difficulty level of translation for this month's chapter is rather high.. so, I'm pretty happy how mine came out for this chapter. ^^
.:cookie:.
paca Hi!!!!!!!!!
This has been a long day.....=___= I'm tired....My school is having troubles with many things....and nobody wants to help.

Same here... i just got back from camp... but i brought my FMA manga with me and i read it! SO THAT I WOULDNT FORGET THAT FMA RULES! ALONG WITH ROYAI!!!
Zachelle
Kenji - Ouch! Hope you'll get it fixed soon. happy.gif

Amethyst Sunset - lol. Hope you have a great time with your Anime/Manga Enthusiasts Club!! Yesh, you should spread the Royai love there!! XD

paca - wow, that's a very nice explanation!! very deep indeed.

Tombow - lol. Let's just hope they did catch that happy.gif And yes, your translations are close to Csakuras translations happy.gif
Menelvir
Just out of curiousity here... Where do you guys live? So many complaints of school these days. Where I live, term doesn't start until August. I'm quite looking forward to it actually... My freshman year!

paca, that write-up on Riza's tatoo is amazing! The author is wonderfully well-versed in mythology and history. Thanks for sharing that!
Amethyst Sunset
I just came home again...and I hung out with the anime/manga enthusiasts again and have now established my reputation as a big FMA fan and a supporter of Royai. XD And I just had my first Japanese class! Of course, I can't translate much, as I only know the characters and we're not yet putting them together into words...

Paca - Thanks for the link! happy.gif I <3 ancient, historic stuff. I'm a sucker for anything with lots of Latin, or mythology, or anything like that.

Zachelle - Yup, I'm having fun. And spreading Royai. What do you expect? XD Anyhow, it's not just FMA we're talking about - we're also talking about Ouran, Bleach, etc. Well, seriously, what do you expect? XDDDD

Menelvir - Philippines. happy.gif I share the same soil and air with Zachelle and Stormie.

There has to be more Royai in chapter 73. Dx * hopeful*
Tombow
@ika07 - Nop, I get the temporary page for ZOMGFT also.

@.:cookie:. - Sorry you had a hard time at school!! But, nice job taking FMA manga with you!! (Good thinking!! biggrin.gif )

@Menelvir - I'm in the U.S., although I often post more actively during this time of the day because my Net connection tends to be much better around this time, than during the peak day hours. biggrin.gif

@Amethyst Sunset - Pretty soon you'll be reading hirakana and katakana on FMA!! biggrin.gif

@Twilightz - Nice Roy avatar!! ^^

@Zachelle - Cute new sig!! ^^

Everyone, another reminder (if you haven't done so) to post your Royai Day sig/avatar you had for Royai Day, on 2007 Royai Day fanworks thread before you put them away.. ^^

Yes, more Royai for chapter 73!! biggrin.gif
Amethyst Sunset
Tombow - We're only starting with hiragana so far...hopefully by the time chapter 73 comes out, I can read at least half of it raw. XD Phew, we went through...the first 38 characters, I think. I have this feeling we'll be having a quiz next Tuesday...

Yes, more Royai for chapter 73, please. happy.gif *big puppydog eyes*

OMG, speaking of Royai...*opens MS Word*

So, what have I missed after that grand Royai Day?

@Kenji - Nice to see you're back!! You haven't missed much. ^^ Amethyst Sunset and Zachelle and Stormie got their college started, so they are busier now.
Chapter 72 of FMA manga came out, and there was indeed some Royai (phone) scene, so that made us happy!! ^^ And, Valerie's Royai Day Fanart contest winners were announced. .. I think that's about it.. Oh, and paca is going to scanlate some of the Royai comics with my translations.
I haven't compiled 2007 Royai Day Album yet... I had been busy translating the whole chapter 72, and that was a long chapter!!! Also, I'm still waiting for some fanarts from some who emailed me that their Royai Day fanarts are coming. Maybe by this weekend I'll start compiling the Album. ^^
Amethyst Sunset
Kenji - Yay! happy.gif

Mental note to self: NEVER, EVER insist on writing fanfics in the wee, wee hours of the morning.

Twilight - Chapter 8
sharpshooter_riza_hawkeye
@paca:I absolutely loved chapter 72. I can't wait for it to be translated though, though your rough translation on an earlier page helped me with the Royai, thanks.

@Tombow: You're such a sweetheart, I always look forward to talking with you. Thanks so much for your kind words all the time.


I have some Royai fics of my own to contribute. I'm fixing to get started on a couple new ones, and hopefully update the ones I have on hold. And if you've already read these, then great! Thanks for reading, and I hope you enjoy/enjoyed them.

@SRH: OMG!! You're back!! =D Welcome back! I'm glad your twins are doing so well!

@Amethyst sunset: Yay! New chapter!! *reads* aww..it's already second to the last chapter?

@Tombow: excellent summary! XD

Despite the fact that summer started, I still am busy unfortunately. Especially with studying for the upcoming SATs. sad.gif It's interfering with my royai time. *boohoo*

It seems like everyone else is busy as well with college and all. Good luck to those people who are having hard time with evil things called 'studies'! XD

As for chapter 73, I really really REALLY wish for some more royai moments. The goodness Arakawa-sensei provided us in chapter 72 left me wanting more royai moments! Like a drug...just kidding. Drugs are bad, everyone, it kills your health. <---wow, that was random. XD

EDIT: off topic, but I'm listening to song called 'Anna ni Isshoni Datta no ni' by See Saw right now. I really like it. I recommend it for anyone who listens to Asian songs like me. ^^

Tombow
@Amethyst Sunset - OMG, chapter 8!!! And, it's nearing the conclusion!! I'm so into your story now! biggrin.gif

@sharpshooter_riza_hawkeye - Aww.. that's so nice of you to say that! Thank you! happy.gif
And, wow, you're a good writer, too!! This thread has so many good writers!!
Would you like to add any of those stories for this year's Royai Day celebration??
We'll be glad to include them in 2007 Royai Day Album!! ^^
(BTW, if you're interested, here is my translation/page summary for chapter 72. ^^)
Hopefully, ZOMGFT scanlations for the chapter will come along soon, too!! ^^

@ika07 - I agree!! That phone scene was so good to see in chapter 72, but it felt short.. crossing fingers for more Royai scenes in chapter 73!! ^^
Amethyst Sunset
SRH - Yay, more fanfics! =D

Ika07 - Good luck with all that stuff, and yeah, I also want more Royai-ness in chapter 73!

Tombow - Crossing my fingers as well. XD

And...typing up the last chapter as we speak. ^^;;;
paca
Hey!! Scanlations chapter 72 from "the Unrivaled Gallery"

@Sunset: Good chapter!!! I am looking forward to how it'd end ^w^!!!!!

@ika07: Good luck with those exams!

Hi all!

So rehearsals for R&J are picking up and I'm gonna go crazy! Coming here and posting w/ all of you is a great release.

@ paca You are amazing! When I have more free time, I'll go back and look at all of the links you posted last weekend, there were so many that I couldn't do it in one sitting.

@ Tombow-dono Please post your rendition of the Roy fan, that'd be awesome! Plus...for the summer, if you like, I could organize an album. Would you be able to instruct me in the ways of Royai Album making????

@ :cookie: Love your new siggie! I haven't seen that pic before. Where did you find it?

@ SRH I was wondering when you'd make an appearance! I had this feeling that you'd pop up a day or so after the celebration, but it's great to know that you and the twins are doing well. Let us know when they start saying "FMA", "Royai", or staring squee'ing like fangirls/fanboys. And keep posting the writings, we need more to tide us over until July 12th. it's my 25th birthday!!!!!

@ ika07 I'm so happy to see you posting more! I hope you are well.

@ Menelvir I live in the US, Pacific Northwest to be exact. Good weather = really bad allergies. i'm lucky though...no allergies!!!!

@ Amethyst_Sunset Good gravy darlin'! I love your story! This chpt is great! I can't wait to read chpt 9. I'm just sad that it's the last one. sad.gif But reading your work has gotten my mind going again about a fanfict i started. I plan on getting it up later this summer. Have an obi to make, a show to call, and fulltime job to do. plus read Harry Potter

@ Kenji Glad to see you're back! Hopefully we will see any new banners that you had been working on!

Okay, I think that covers everyone. If I left anyone out, sorry.

But we are on page 775! You know that that means????

1000 pgs!!!

So let's keep it up! Go Team Royai!
Tombow
@Starrie - So nice to see you!!! happy.gif
The rehearsal??!! Sounds like you're having fun/crazy time!! Hope you got chance/time to enjoy Royai phone scene from chapter 72!! Yes, Roy wanted to give Riza flowers!! It's totally, like a scene added for Royai Day!! biggrin.gif
(Well, ok, I'm sure it has some story significance, too. ^^)
Yap, I'll try to create some variations using your fun fan Roy design this weekend!! ^^
And, you're right!! Page 775 already!! ohmy.gif

@Amethyst Sunset - You're are writing the final chapter?? I can't wait to read it, but also it's sad that this story is going to end soon!! I want more!! tongue.gif
(Nah, thank you so much for writing this one! happy.gif)

@paca - You're always so helpful!! Thank you!! ^^

csakuras translation is done!! ^^
ZOMGFT is still with the temp page, tho... Scanlation is maybe Sunday or Monday, it says..
ika07
@paca and Amethyst Sunset: Thank you for your support! ^^

@Starrie: It's so nice to see you again! Please drop by more often when you can!
By the way, you're turning 25 in a month?! Happy early birthday! (I'm surprised though. You looked so young in the picture!)

@cookie: I don't think I've welcomed you here yet. So here I go! Welcome to the awesome royai thread! Enjoy your stay and please have fun with us!
Zachelle
Kenji - Yay! Glad to see you back!!

Amethyst Sunset - *gasp* New chapter already!! Have to read it pronto!! But it's the second to the last chapter already.. Aww,, Yes, we want more tongue.gif

Tombow - Teehee, thanks! Oh I agree, the Royai scene really made my day!! Yes, and more Royai scenes for chapter 73 happy.gif

Starrie - We're really closing into page 1000!!

ika07 - laugh.gif Yes, 'studies' = evil! XDDD I didn't think I would be this busy when college just started. And good luck to you too!!

So many things to do. wacko.gif Then wearing heeled shoes really hurts, I even have bruises now. I would have wore flat shoes if it wasn't in the handbook that girls must wear at least two inches heeled shoes, now everytime I got home, my feet hurts so much sleep.gif
Amethyst Sunset
Wh00t, I just got back from the mall...which means TOYCON! XDDDD

Let's see...my friend and I pooled our money and got a set of FMA keychains (but we ended up fighting over who got Roy with Black Hayate on his head - but of course, not a real fight, because that would be weird. XD And sadly, there was no Riza), a necklace with the Flamel cross and Roy, and a small figure of Roy (No Ed. D= And the bigger figures were out of my price range). I could've gotten Riza too, but I had to save my money for college stuff. XDDDD We even discussed how my Royai wedding story would look like.

Paca - Scanlations are popping up like mushrooms! XD Thanks!

Starrie - Good luck with rehearsals, and yeah, next stop - 1000 pages! happy.gif We can do this! *waves blue and gold pompoms*

Tombow - Like I said before, lots and lots of scanlations. =D Thanks, and once again, thanks for translating too!

Ika07 - No problem! wink.gif

Zachelle - The only real homework I have so far is learning the first several hiragana characters and practicing how to write them. XD And...heeled shoes? Our admin probably couldn't care less if we went to classes barefoot. XDDDD Where do you study?

Er...yup, hopefully I'll have the last chapter of Twilight up before I go to bed. XDDDD Thanks for your support, guys! Maybe I do have a shot at winning Stormie's contest after all...
Zachelle
Amethyst Sunset - woah!! I envy you! I couldn't go to the toycon today nor yesterday. My feet refuses to walk anymore sleep.gif Oh!! I want a Roy figure too!! Is it the one from Toy Kingdom? Or a different figure? The ones in Toy Kingdom's way too pricey.. Oh, and there aren't any plushies?

Familiar with San Juan de Dios College, yeah, I study nursing there. And if the nuns see me walking barefoot, I dunno what they'll do to me XDD haha. So lucky you and you don't have uniforms.

Aw man. D= The figure was pretty cheap - P150. And it had FIRE XD The Toy Kingdom figures were the ones I wanted, but even though they were half-priced, I still didn't have enough cash for even one. T_T

Nursing? Ooh, interesting! No wonder you need heels. *pat pat* If I had to wear heels everyday I'd scream and pull a Tamaki (a.k.a. crawl into my emo corner). XD

No uniforms...which means I can go to class with my Roy necklace and nobody can stop me. XDDDDDD
Zachelle
Oh!! Makes me want it more!!XD Yes, I agree, even at half price I still can't afford those at Toy Kingdom. And it's a bit funny that Al costs more and also heavier XDD Anyway, figures of who are available? Any Ouran merchandise at all?

lol. Even with the uniform, I still wear the Flamel cross necklace tongue.gif haha. pulling a Tamaki act XDD
Tombow
@Amethyst Sunset - Aww, you got the FMA goodies!! Roy figure with fire!!?? Nice!! ^^
And, the last chapter is nearing the completion?? You're simply amazing!! happy.gif

@Zachelle - You MUST wear heels?? That's tough!! >.< That remind me... Riza normally doesn't wear heels, right?? I'm trying to remember what kind of shoes she was wearing for the "secretary" disguise..

@ika07 - Hope you study well for your SAT!! ^^ I know that will reduce the time for Royai, but that is sooo important!! Good luck!! ^^
Amethyst Sunset
Zachelle - I know. XD I didn't see any Ouran merch, as far as I'm concerned. >_>;;;

I wore the Flamel cross necklace during my first two days in college. XD Tomorrow it'll be Roy and the Flamel.

Tombow - Thanks. ^^ Yeah, I overloaded on the Roy goodies. XDDDDD I usually overload on Ed goodies, see.

Zachelle
Tombow - yes, it's so hard. I'm not really used to wear heels for that long. Lol. Oh yeah, did Riza wear heels then? I can't remember anything down from her skirt XD

Amethyst Sunset - Aww.. I want a Hikaru plushie to death XDD You'll be wearing both Roy and Flamel necklace tomorrow? laugh.gif

I see, Amethyst Sunset! Do you three know each other in person? That's so cool, I'd expected this place to be dominated by Americans, as is the case for most forums I visit. No wonder I'm in the same timezone as you guys. And seeing how you all seem to be suffering so much in college, I think I'll enjoy my last 2 months the best I can. biggrin.gif Oh and I haven't been checking for updates for Twilight!

Zachelle, your poor feet! I'm jealous of those people who can wear heels all day and not feel a thing. My friend gets exasperated with me when I go shoe shopping with her because she's one of those people, and I'll be like, "Those shoes are too high!", and she'll give me a funny look.

Anyway, I'm determined not to wear heels in my college days. Because more often than not, I'll be running for classes... tongue.gif

QUOTE(Amethyst Sunset)

Isn't that a lot to wear, Amethyst Sunset? I like wearing my Flamel cross as a belt, slightly hidden by my top, since I consider it inappropriate for work. tongue.gif

Off-topic: I got bored, nostalgic and curious, so I went to find an episode of Digimon Adventure 02. Jeez, why does Paku Romi voice all my favourite anime characters? (okay, most of them anyway...)
Amethyst Sunset
Zachelle - I'm guilty as charged for planning to make Riza wear heels in her wedding. XDDDDD DIBS ON TAMAKI PLUSHIE

Menelvir - Do you live in the Philippines by chance, or in some other Southeast Asian country? ^^ Good luck with school though...and I was hoping I could meet Zachelle at the Toycon. We three don't know each other personally (yet).

Nice use of the Flamel. XDDDD Thank goodness we have a much more lenient dress code.

And yes, the necklace I bought has a red Flamel AND a little chibi-type Roy making a little flame. ^^ They're on one necklace, and it's different from my regular Flamel.
Menelvir
Amethyst Sunset, I live in Singapore! biggrin.gif And I'm actually quite looking forward to school... It beats working! Not that I can complain. It provides me what I need to do some writing: a computer and lots of time. Now all I have to do is get my butt down to it. I'm lazy as hell! XD

*imagines chibi Roy with a little flame* KAWAIIIIIIIIIIII!!! *ahem* Okay, I'm cool... That's pretty unusual necklace! Just wondering, do you get weird looks or weird comments when you wear FMA merchandise, or any anime clothes or accesories, for that matter?

I have a friend who lives there! =D Good luck with school and work! I should've gotten a summer job, but too late...

Yeah, I like it when Roy's got fire. XD But come on, why else would he be called the Flame Alchemist? And yeah, it was the first time I saw a necklace like it. Anyhow, my friends are pretty used to it. They get curious and stuff, but I guess they've seen weirder things than me wearing my Flamel necklace, or even bringing along my silver pocket watch. Heck, in high school, for a time I had a Roy keychain on my ID! He's small enough to pass unnoticed under teacher's noses though. XD

And three of them(characters voiced by Paku) are short XDD Yeah, I agree, though mine's only Ed and Shiro-chan(Bleach).

Menelvir - Yeah, me too. The other girls at my school seem to be okay with the heels, but me, after an hour, I want to take it off already. Wonder how they could last long with that.. Anyway, yeah, I also thought that with Amethyst wearing both Roy and the Flamel cross as a necklace, seems a lot nice idea wearing the Flamel as a belt happy.gif I would like to meet with Amethyst and Stormie, maybe one of these days we will tongue.gif

Oh yeah, I love your avatar, is that your pendant?

Amethyst Sunset - lol. My friends too, at first, they were kind of like "What are listening to now?"(on my mp3 player, 60% are anime songs XD) "What is that???"(Keychains, figures, or whatever anime-related) "What are you talking about??"(When I start babbling about FMA or quoting FMA XD) But now they're pretty much used to it tongue.gif They're not anime fans

@Tombow: I'd love to have my Confessions of a Brigadier General in the Royai 2007 book! It's my first fanfic that I've actually liked, and have actually finished. Although it's sequel Confessions of a Fuhrer is a bit more...adventurous. I love them both too much, lol.

I've already got the twins watching FMA, Sailor Moon, Inuyasha, and a little bit of some other animes, they seem to respond to those three the most though. I'm sure they'll soon be putting their favorite couples together. And don't worry, They still watch "Barney and Sesame street" in the mornings. So they're being educated and entertained all in one day. lol.

And not to worry, I still have many more Royai themed stories swirling in my head. And they'll be out and on FF.net in no time.
Tombow
*cough bringing the thread back to Royai cough* biggrin.gif
(Reminder to everyone: Please try to avoid making posts purely of non-FMA chat contents... try to include at least one content that is related to Roy, Riza, Royai, or FMA on each post. ^^)

@sharpshooter_riza_hawkeye Oh, that's awesome!! Confessions of a Brigadier General is a 15 chapter epic!! Thank you for contributing it for the 2007 Royai Day Album!!
Royai fans will love it!! happy.gif
So, you're introducing FMA to your twins? Tehehe, nice job spreading Royai!! biggrin.gif
And yes, I'm looking forward to reading many more of your awesome Ryai themed fanafics!! ^^


Now that Paca has brought to us the link to some awesomely in-depth analysis of Riza's tattoo, I again wonder what kind of role it plays in the rest of FMA storyline.. I'm pretty sure it will, as Arakawa-sensei usually never introduce us to something that dramatic unless it plays some significant role in the storyline... I wonder what it means, and what kind of role it plays in the coming chapters.

...already looking forward to chapter 73. ^^
Menelvir
Yes, Tombow,sir! tongue.gif I think sharpshooter's twins are too young to be introduced to romance! (How old are they, anyway?) Haha! Yeah, but if I ever have kids, I'm going to bring them up in a wholesome reading environment, starting with manga (because there's lots of pictures!).

Sharpshooter, I haven't read [i]Confessions[/b] yet! It sounds good though... I think I'll go look it up!

Zachelle, Shiro-chan's mine!! Back off! tongue.gif Yeah I agree with the short bit. It's a good thing height doesn't matter to me when it comes to guys... More importantly, most of the characters Paku Romi voices are smart-asses! And arrogant, but they've got a right to be, mostly. happy.gif

Yup, that's my necklace. It reminded me a lot about the chapter title 'Fullmetal Heart' (can't remember if it was a episode title too), so I took a picture and made it into an avvie.

returning to topic

@ Tombow-dono Yes, since reading the LJ entry that paca posted, it has had me wondering. Also, the title "She will fear the dark from now on..." that has me highly concerned. I don't want to see Riza fear something that is naturally occurring and occurs on a regular basis. I really want to see Riza fight back or have Roy come to her rescue soon. To fear shadows would be incredibly hard for me.

Chpt 73, 24 days and counting!

Happy Father's Day albeit, its pretty much over


Tombow
@Starrie - Yeah, it's sad to see Riza being affected by the meeting with [spoiler]Pride[/spoiler], and constantly being afraid of shadow now. Was [spoiler]Pride[/spoiler] that terrifying to her?? She had been through the war and all, and she has a pretty tough nerve, and seeing her being that terrifying is really something. (in a sad way...)
Oh, by the way, forgot to tell last time... please please go ahead and organize (and make the Album afterward) for the Royai Summer Festival!! I think that can include Starrie's Twilight fanfic/fanart/comic contests, and other fun stuff.. ^^

@Menelvir - Nice 'Fullmetal Heart' necklace!! Yes, I think episode 23 was "Fullmetal Heart." ^^

Anyone who would like to volunteer to organize and carry out the Royai Summer Festival (or whatever you'd like to name it) please help out Starrie!! ^^
You guys/ladies plan/organize whenever and however you like it to be... ^^

Oh, and...could sharpshooter_riza_hawkeye, or anyone, post SRH's Confessions Of A Brigadier General on 2007 Royai Day Fanfic/ Drabble/ Poem/ Haiku thread?? I don't want to double post, and I don't want to tack it to my Haiku post, and getting it somehow losts among my Haiku. Thanks!! ^^

OMG! I demand pics of the "Roy w/ Fire" figure... My one friend will go NUTS.
She's the biggest Roy fangirl EVER. I'll eventually have to take a pic. of the little plushie-like thing that my friend brought back from Japan. He lives in my car, so I never think of bringing my camera in there.

See-Saw = WIN. They did a bunch of songs along with Yuki Kaijiura for the .hack//SIGN anime. I have all three soundtracks, and each one is amazing. There is a group called Ali Project who does the music for the new .hack series (.hack//ROOTS) and everything I heard from them so far has been pretty sweet too.

Heels are my friends. (Because I have a sick need to be taller than 5'10".) XD I sit on my ass all day at my job now, but I even wore them when I worked in retail management and walked around all day. Not really a problem for me unless they were over 3" high. Then, they throw your foot-arch (and your back...) into a weird position, and make your feet really tired REALLY quickly. I bought a pair of 4" stilettos the other day, and I was wearing them around to break them in, and my feet got very tired very fast. 3" is pretty much my "rule" for heels... but these were $100 shoes on sale for $40, and they were one of my favorite designers (STEVE MADDEN FTW!) so I made an exception.

And YES. Riza wears heels. In the "Broken Angel" game, and also, all women wear heels with the dress uniform. I forget which chapters in the manga you can see it in, but the first is at the funeral, and then again in the flashback where Roy and Riza visit Granny Pinako. (Fortunately, the ones I wear fro that costume are only about 1 1/2 - 2" high, so they are not really killer on the feet at all.)

(Haha. It's good to have friends who will allow you ro abuse them in the name of Cosplay.)

SRH renews my faith in humanity by breeding young anime fans. Get 'em hooked early!! Two of my friends made a little Zoro onesie for their 6-month old son one year when they cosplayed as Nami and Sanji from One Peice. XD

Zachelle - Paku Romi also does Natsume Hyuuga from Gakuen Alice. ^^ And he's a child prodigy, like Ed! XD Yeah, hopefully we can meet and spend the entire day talking about Royai =D

I'm just glad I found an org for people who love anime and manga. ^^ I also have many friends who aren't into anime/manga as much as I am.

SRH - Nice, your kids also watch anime? Ah yes, start when young. XDDDD I only started when I was around 16, when I heard of Fruits Basket and thought it had an interesting storyline. Then FMA followed shortly after. XD

Tombow - I bet Riza's tattoo is going to play a big role in the manga, especially with her relationship with Roy. =D I hope to find out more in the coming chapters, especially 73, which is lurking close by...

And Pride must be really terrifying, to really do that to someone as tough as Riza... D=

Menelvir - Yeah, nice pendant! happy.gif Actually in the English dub, the episode "Fullmetal Heart" was translated into "Heart of Steel". I don't know if they did the same with the chapter of the same name.

Starrie - Well, Riza's probably scared not for herself, but for everyone else. [spoiler]After all, Pride warned her and even asked her to join them...and there is also the fact that Roy is also a leading candidate for a human sacrifice...[/spoiler] I can try to help you with the summer festival, that is, while college isn't giving me big fat loads yet. XD

Liz - All in the name of cosplay! XD I'll see if I can get pics of my FMA merch up. My dad keeps the camera under lock and key. XDDDDD And I'm a Roy fangirl too...

Kenji - *sneaks camera out of dad's closet* XDDDDD I'll see what I can do.

Aaaaaand...after finishing my social science homework...

Last chapter of Twilight

I'm honored that you want to include my story/ies in the Royai 2007 album, Tombow. happy.gif
Menelvir
Tombow, just posted up SRH's Confessions on the Fanfic flood! But if she wants to have the honours, I'll edit the post! biggrin.gif

Amethyst Sunset, I started on anime with Cardcaptor Sakura. That was when I was 12. Then I went on to Digimon, Kindaichi Case Files, Naruto (which helped me a great deal during my 'O' Levels year), Chobits and Gundam Seed. FMA was the 7th anime series I watched, and the 3rd I actually completed. *reminiscences quietly about her anime past*

'Fullmetal Heart' or 'Heart of Steel', it doesn't matter. All stem from the same Japanese phrase 'Hagane no Kokoro'. tongue.gif

I do hope you can get that camera out! Let's get Roy to burn down that closet, so you can take the camera out!

And last comment: Twilight!! But I'm too tired to read it now. Jeez it's approaching 2am here... I'll read it first thing when I wake up, I promise!

Dear god, I haven't been here in a while. I blame it all on work, I even missed Royai Day. mad.gif

IAWTC.

It's in her character to want to protect people, and now it looks like her 'leaking' any information about the Pride encounter would put those she cares about in danger. So it's a question of "What is the best way to protect these people?" Are they in more danger by her remainig silent and NOT saying anything, or would it be worse to leak the information and risk the wrath of the Homunculi? It's a tough decision...

Not to mention, she seems to want to keep distant from Roy for this reason. Like her presence would put him in danger since Pride is focused on her for the moment. (And it must break her heart to voluntarily separate herself from Roy...) XD
Twilightz
Wow, you finished your story, Amethyst Sunset. Gonna read the last chapter soon. ^^

Um, I made a Royai sig. Tell me what you think about it. mellow.gif

Version 1

Version 2
Tombow
@Liz - You're the dress authority for Riza!! Good to know you're on hand to give us the answer when we need it!! biggrin.gif And, I totally agree about Riza's situation. That's so Riza, and it's so Royai..

@Amethyst Sunset - It's an excellent point about Riza's dilenma. She has to keep the distance to keep Roy safe. Poor Riza!! sad.gif
And, wooo, the last chapter!! Got to go read it tonight!! ^^

@Menelvir - Thank you, thank you, for posting SRH's fanfic!! As for the episode title, here in the U.S., I think the one on fan-sub said "Heart of Steel" and the Emglish dub on Adult Swim is titled "Fullmetal Heart" (or the other way around.. XDD) Either way is close enough, IMO. ^^
Oh, and SRH's baby twins are less than 1 year old, I think.. Starting early.. XDD

@musical alchemist - Nice to see you!! Yeah, we had some fun time for Royai Day!! And, we missed you!! But, your banners will be included for the 2007 Royai Day Album, so, not all is lost.. ^^ I think there will be Royai Summer festival sometime in near future... hope you can have some fun with us this time!! And, BTW, cute avatar!! ^^

@Kenji - Glad you're back. ^^ I agree!! I would love to see the pic!! ^^

@Twilightz - Nice Royai sig!!! I like both, but if choose one, maybe the first one is my choice.
But, both are nice!! Make sure that everything in your sig space will be within 500 pix wide x 300 pix high, including all texts and pics. ^^ (Pssst.. it's over the limit currently.. too high.. ^^)
Starrieidgirl
@ Tombow-dono and Amethyst Sunset Wow! Thank you! I think I'll set a deadline for the end of July or August. I'd like to give myself and others plenty of time to submit stuff. Maybe I will make a few threads where ppl can "dump/flood" summer themed ficts/pics/works. A.S. I'd greatly appreciate the help! We'll work around each others schedules, you have school I have job and theatre.

@ Liz You are absolutely right in re: to protecting others and pushing them away. But I guess we will have to wait it out a few more chapters! Which would fit w/ what A.S. state's in the spoiler box.

@ m_a I'm sorry you missed Royai Day! sad.gif But you can check out the threads and see all of the amazing goodies of ficts/pics/sigs and other whatnots that were lovingly brought into the world for that day. Just be sure to be here for Halloween and Christmas. Plus, I'm planning on doing a Summer Album, so please contribute when you can.

@ Twilightz Great siggies! Are you thinking about using them for yourself, or were you asked to design one for someone??

Any other thoughts or feelings about Rizax[spoiler]Pride[/spoiler]??? Has everyone read the article in regards to Riza's tattoo? Please do it if you haven't. It makes some very interesting points about the symbolism that is shown in the tattoo. My only question stems from the chapter when...[spoiler]Roy burns Riza to "destroy" the tattoo to prevent another flame alchemist.[/spoiler] Was there ever suppose to be one like Roy ever? And what harm could befall Ametris if there was a second/third/fourth/etc.?

I'd love to hear other's opinions on the matter.
sharpshooter_riza_hawkeye
OMG OMG OMG....You will never believe this. Okay, I had Edward sitting in his swing in front of the TV while I fed Isabella on the couch. We were watching the oh-so-famous episode thirteen Flame VS. Fullmetal (or was it the other way around?) And out of the blue during the fight scene, Eddie turns around and says "Moma, Oy go nap, nap!" which translates to "Momma, Roy goes Snap, snap!" I was so siked when he said that! And Bella just loves Riza and Black Hayate.


I'm so glad you all like my Confessions! For those that need links in other threads, I'll try to get that done tomorrow, for right now I must sleep.

Hey Tombow, I can't wait for 73 either, it's gonna be awesome.
Amethyst Sunset
Good news: I got out early today! happy.gif
Bad news: Because our Japanese sensei was absent. sad.gif

Menelvir - FMA was the second series I watched, and I don't know if I finished it first before Fruits Basket, or the other way around. I think it's more of the latter. And yeah! *uses Roy to burn her dad's closet*

Nah, I respect his privacy. XDDDD I'll ask him later.

Musical Alchemist - *hugs* Well, at least you're back now and we're glad you're back! There's always next year, and that festival Tombow and Starrie are planning.

Liz - I agree, Riza's facing a fork in the road, and she doesn't know which path to take. After all, she's thinking of what will happen when she makes her decision...[spoiler]especially with the rest of Roy's subordinates scattered throughout Amestris and of course, Roy being a potential target[/spoiler] And poor Riza, she might even have to make a choice to keep herself away from Roy for his sake! D= *cue dramatic music*

Twilightz - Love the signatures! Both versions are very good, but I prefer the first one.

Tombow - Need...chapter 73...now. XD When will you be closing the Royai Day threads, btw? Or are they already closed because I'm too lazy to look at them myself? XD

Starrie - Yay! I'll be sure to help out in any way I can. [spoiler]According to the article, the part in the tattoo which states something about the utilization of hydrogen was the one most burnt, because hydrogen is the most flammable element and the one capable of doing the most damage, especially when ignited. I don't blame Roy for wanting to destroy that part first after he learned it - well, remember his battle with Lust?

I guess Riza's father wanted to make sure his research went to someone trustworthy, who would use the power of flame alchemy for good and not just for their own personal gain. Many people would kill to have that kind of power - the kind of power that can be used in a snap, literally. So Mr. Hawkeye left the research with his daughter, entrusted her to Roy (and/or vice versa) and kicked the bucket. *cue funeral music here*

If there were more Flame Alchemists, I think Amestris would fall into ruins. They would want to outdo each other, probably decide who the "real" Flame Alchemist is, and push things too far. One Flame Alchemist is enough - more than enough, actually. And if Roy ever decides he wants to entrust his knowledge to someone else, he's already got the info stored in his head. And he's not the kind to just give away the secrets to anyone.

Not to mention that Riza wanted to become Riza Hawkeye, an individual, and not just a means by which her father can entrust his greatest work to his apprentice.[/spoiler]

...Wow, I ramble. XD

SRH - Awwwww, I'd be psyched too if I were there! And yeah, Fullmetal vs. Flame - the episode that made me start fangirling Roy! XDDDDD In Japanese, it's "Flame vs. Metal". What I said earlier is the English dub title.

And on a last note...thanks so much to everyone who read Twilight! happy.gif I know, I know, the ending was botched. XD
