Amethyst Sunset, I can play a bit of Brothers on the cello! It goes really high, but I don't really want to go an octave lower because I feel it's too low... =/ Yea, I guess piano can act as a foundation for many other instruments. Among the people I know who can play a few music instruments, there are only two of us who don't have piano background: me and another friend who stopped her lessons before she took her Grade 1 exam.
Twilight was good! Was a bit disappointed when [spoiler]Riza woke up from her dream[/spoiler], but all's well that ends well. Thinking about it, there isn't really any other way to have a happy Royai ending...
By the way, what are the rules for Stormie's contest? Does it have to be Royai, and does it have to be Alternate Universe? Also when is the closing date?
Hmm I don't know much about Gakuen Alice, but I'll probably read a summary of it somewhere, and read your fic! Just can't get enough of Royai! Hehe.
And I'm trying to go one project at a time... But this is already the 3rd FMA fanfic queueing up to be written!! Besides, somehow I'm not having much progress on two current projects: a non-fiction essay collection, and an original short story that's for a local contest. Maybe I'll put the essays on hiatus; I need to get more research done anyway!
