Thank you Schubes, Menelvir, Triss Hawkeye, and Anne Packrat for reading and giving me feedback one way or another! And props to Anne Packrat for calling me out on a confusingly worded sentence (or was it two?). I hope my explanation worked for you, but if you're still confused (and I wouldn't blame you- explaning isn't my strongest point), let me know!

EDIT#1: Thanks to Tombow, too! I'm glad you enjoyed it!

EDIT #2: Anne Packrat- yes, I sent it through the review reply system. The gist of it is that he left before he should have.

Schubes- Thanks for keeping us informed on the progress of your amv! I have some guesses as to what certain scenes might be, but I guess I'll just have to wait.

*pushes self out of the corner, rubbing eyes* Sorry, sorry. I've barely been able to get on all weekend. Been working two jobs, watching my kids, then watching someone else's kids, and then trying to get them to sleep so I could sleep. But anyways, long story short, no my lovelies I have not fallen off the face of the RoyAi planet.

Chapter 7 is still a work in progress for Temptation Affairs, and for all the new members, if you guys HAVE read chapter 72, I have a small one-shot about that on my FF.net account and you can read that, and my other stories by clicking the link below in my signature. You know...be smart and read to kill boredom time smile.gif.

But yeah. Went through youtube the other day, looked at almost all the RoyAi videos. Really enjoyed it. Or at least the kids did. I was fixing supper and half paying attention. Got Isabella her Roy blanket last night before the mall closed, and got Edward his Harry Potter one, so they're both happy as pigs in dirt with mommy right now because she soooooo spoils them to death.


But that's my update and propaganda ruse for right now. I'm going to catch up on some you all's (sorry, I'mma a Texan, lol) fics sooner or later. Right now I'm getting regular updates on stories not just from my FF.net account, but other places too. That, and I'm working on my own stories trying to make my readers happy.
Menelvir
Heh, you sure have had a busy weekend, sharpshooter_riza_hawkeye! It's alright, we'll wait for the update for Temptation Affairs! And uhh, Roy blanket? *is reminded of Liz's Roy pillowcase tongue.gif*

It was my pleasure to read your ficlet, Captain jacksparrow589! wink.gif You write well.

Yes, I'm not kidding, Triss! And I'm gaining new insight with every reading, because Rowling packed in so many interesting tidbits that are essentially unimportant to the plot, yet fun to know anyway. With her descriptive style and obsessive love for intense detail, I'm not surprised her books are so thick!

Wow... 811 pages dedicated to this subject...

If you sent your explanation through ff.net's PM system then I haven't gotten it. It's probably being slow again.

It's nice to meet you, Triss and everyone else just returning. I'm new here, but not to the Royai fandom, and once I find that black wig I have, I'll probably be the only person who's ever cosplayed all of the Royai trifecta.

I'm on the fence about posting a story of mine here. I'm close to updating one of my major stories (A Confusing Midday). It's rated M / R, but as of right now there's nothing more then innuendo, sexual language and a description of Roy's butt in it. It is the sequel to another story called "Lonely Mornings" but since that story is rather explicit, I will not be posting it here. A Confusing Midday is completely readable by itself, however.

What do you all think?

I think this is a good time to remind everyone again that this board has viewers as young as 8 years old (I personally don't know about that one, but I know that our thread has viewers as young as 11 years old) hence our rating is set for very young viewers and the board has rules against posting "suggestive" material on the board. And, I was reminded of that rule recently because we do have many fanfic activities here. So, my recommendation is to play safe.
(You don't want to get banned for posting "mature material," right?)
I guess, if you are in doubt, you can post your chapter title, etc, but not the link, and you can distribute the link by PM to some who wants to read it, then after some number of posters here read it they can probably tell you and us if it's safe to post the link here or not. smile.gif

@sharpshooter_riza_hawkeye - You're like a super mom!! I don't know how you manage all that!! But, good for Bella for getting the Roy blanket!! biggrin.gif
Of course we can wait for the next chapter!
Please take good care of yourself, and your twins!! happy.gif

@DefStatic - Yap, we are the longest Charcter Discussion thread. XDD But, we include talks on Roy, Riza, Royai, and FMA, and much more, so it's more than Royai. ^^

@jacksparrow589 - Add me to the list of people who enjoyed your "ficlet"!! ^^
I liked reading Hayate's point of view!! Nice job!! biggrin.gif

@Schubes - You got quite a lot done for your AMV!! The lines..
There's a piece of you that's here with me
It's everywhere I go, it's everything I see
I like it and I think I know some Royai scene for it, but I can't remember now. If I do I'll let you know. ^^

@Ice - You did cut six chapters?? ohmy.gif I did not know that!!
Oh, and chapter 3 link does not work for me... it tells me to log in.. sad.gif

@Menelvir - Aww.. that was a quick meeting in chapter 9... can't wait for the "action filled" chapter 10!! biggrin.gif Oh, and make sure you do the "shellacking" of your cello in well ventilated area!! We can't have you getting high from shellac!! tongue.gif


And, just because I feel like making this post more of a post on Royai thread. biggrin.gif



I want to see them back together again soon!! (Sorry for the mild spoiler.. ^^)

Would it be acceptable to post a link to my Fanfiction.net Profile and let people find it from there? It does include a list of all my stories on it (ratings and such) though, so that is a consideration.

And for no particular reason, Roy in a maid outfit:

Menelvir
Anne Packrat: Umm... Roy in a maid's costume... He looks strangely good, but no way am I going to have a maid as obnoxious or as lazy as him... tongue.gif

I THINK it should be alright to post a link to your profile. Or at least tell us your pen name... I, for one, am curious to know how "explicit" Lovely Mornings is... smile.gif

Heh, yes, Tombow, sir! The window's open wide. And the shellac really stinks, so I don't think I'll get high on that...

Thanks for reading Chapter Nine! I've just started Ten, so maybe you'll see it within 24 hrs!

Hey, DefStatic! Yep, like Tombow said, we do tend to go off topic a lot... tongue.gif
Schubes
Menelvir Thanks! yea im soooo close!!!!


Triss Hawkeye Thanks i'll try to get it all done as soon as possible =]



jacksparrow589 ur welcome for the feedback and yea some things are a lil obvious on what i might use but who knows =D



Tombow Well if u remember don't forget to tell me plz =] love the pic btw!

Lonely Mornings is on the border of not being allowed on fanfiction.net. Not the worst thing I've written, but all the bad stuff is generally on adultfanfiction dot net. I'm Anne Packrat on fanfiction.net so you can do a search for my name. It's also on Mediaminer and Ficwad, though on Ficwad it's under annepackrat (without the space). And if you're curious about Envy x Pinako that's also on each of those sites as well. ^^

More Roy dress up:

Schubes
OMG! Anne packrat literally the first thing that fell out of my mouth when i saw that pic was "OMG! he's the f***ing cookie monster!!!!"
XD only edited for small children lmao


Good news everything on the video is done except the second chorus and the part that says we're looking up at the same night skys keep pretending the sun will not rise.

and

there's a piece of u that's here with me it's everywhere i go it's everything i see


so if anyone can think of anything plz let me know cuz my brain has been completely fried on this and tombow if u remember what u had let me know! =]

Tombow
@Schubes - I can't remember the scene so far for that line.. If you find a nice scene for that line, please go ahead and complete the AMV!! happy.gif

@Anne Packrat - That might work, but if you like to post the link to your FF.net profile, maybe you like to make sure none of the fanfics listed in your Profile there are explicit, else you could be giving access to the explicit material to reader's of this thread who are minors?? unsure.gif I'm just wondering, since I'm not FF.net account holder and can't say one way or the other. ^^ Or, you can post your fic title without link, like you just did, or maybe we can wait some posters here who are also FF.net account holders to read your fic and give us opinions if that one is safe to link directly?? ^^

@Menelvir - Please go and read Anne's A Confusing Midday, and let us know if that is with content suitable for for minors 11 yrs and up. ^^

I'm probably being overly cautious on posting "mature content," and that's probably making this thread dull and boring, but we had some incident recently, and I would really like to play it safe than getting anyone into trouble. Hope you guys could cooperate. ^^


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Also, sorry for the delay we had (we run into some bump, but it's all cleared, so ...) these are interim compilations of...
Fanarts contributions for 2007 Royai Day Album (scroll down to the bottom of last post.)

Among this year's fanart contributions, may I suggest using MeLRizA's Royai Note for the cover of this year's Royai day Album??
Click to view attachment

(@Liz - Please let us know if you would like to add your other Royai Day fanart that you're currently working on to this. ^^)

And, Fanworks contributions (scroll down to the last post)

And, Fanfics contributions (scroll down to my post toward the bottom of the page)

This year we had less fanarts and more fanfics, but we also had lots of fanworks (banners and other stuff) so, overall I think we did pretty good!! (Besides, we had fun!! biggrin.gif )


If anyone's contribution is missing, or listed wrong, please let me know. (For the one from ~Edward~Elric~Fan~, please check her post on Fanart contribution thread. ^^)

Dude, it's cool, I don't want to expose anyone to anything either, that's why I'm asking. So if the work is explicit and I just mention the title and my username without direct linking to anything that is okay then? As long as I say it's explicit? I just want to be sure of what exactly I'm allowed to do.

A Wedding picture:


Com'n, you know their wedding is SO going to be like this.
Amethyst Sunset
The picture of Roy as Cookie Monster reminds me of the fact that Toru Ohkawa, Roy's Japanese VA, also does Cookie Monster in Japanese.

...

Yes. Check Wikipedia. SRSLY.

Anyhow, once again I blame college (and my org duties...yes, just 'cause your organization is about anime and manga doesn't mean the workload is significantly lessened) for not being around much and not updating my currently running fanfic/s. But thanks for the birthday greetings, everyone. happy.gif And keep up the good work on all the Royai-related stuff! Can't get enough of 'em. wink.gif

...

CROSSDRESSING! XDDDDD Riza and Roy sure love that, don't they? ^^;;; I'd like to cosplay as Roy someday...despite the fact that I'm a girl and I'm unwilling to part with my rapidly growing hair

And now here is my own contribution...

You've Got a Long Way to Go - Chapter 6 - Requiem
Ice_Alchemist578
hey guys

Anne Packrat-Hi! i don't think I've said Hi yet. Anyway i love the pics you posted they're great! smile.gif

Tombow-Yeah i cut six chapters but really all i did was combine them in to six really long chapters so the writing is still the same and you get the whole story, just faster then i planned lol heres a repost of the link Chapter 3 and here is Chapter 6 of Meet the Parents! yay smile.gif

Amethyst Sunset- I just finished reading all your updates for you've got a long way to go, they're great!!! Its such a cute story/idea, where did you come up with it? please update soon smile.gif!

Menelvir-i just finished reading your update too! its so good, there is such great competition for this contest, im having so much fun. Pleaseee update soon! smile.gif!

I'm off to finish reading fanfics and watching Harry Potter....

jacksparrow589
Schubes- I've got one for the part with "we're looking up at the same night skies", but only that one line- On one of the opening themes (I think "Rewrite"), it shows Roy -at night- looking up. Really literal, but I think it might work.

I just checked, and it is in "Rewrite", starting at 0:38. And then there's the part with the sun shining on Riza as she watches Black Hayate starting at 0:55 for the "keep pretending the sun will not rise" part.

As to the other line, I have no clue whatsoever as to what to do. But there's my suggestion for the first one.
Schubes
OOO! jacksparrow love the idea!!!! thank u!!!!! biggrin.gif i will deff. use that! wink.gif
paca
Ohh!!! So many new people!!! Hi everybody!!!! *waves* I'm Paca. Nice to meet you!

This grows faster and faster!!

Paca state: (still alive) - disappeared: 'cause of HP7 and winter holidays lol

Any news?

Paca found something pretty old...don't know who wrote it ..(sorry) -it was saved in an old cd of Paca.... -

Here it is (it's longer...here just a part of it):
*posts-posts*
WARNING: Manga Spoiler.... I think up to chapter 47

"Change the world"

"Change the world" because I have always believed (and even Arakawa has said it herself) that in the universe of Fullmetal Alchemist Roy represents a "chance for change", the faith in a better tomorrow. Idealist? Yes, that´s another word to define Roy Mustang.

The Man. The Myth. The Alchemy.


A first impression might lead us to wrongly think of Roy as a somewhat shallow, ambitious, easy-going young colonel. The more we read of the manga the more we realize these assumptions are incorrect. He does nothing to discorage this image of himself. Sad is that a large part of the Fullmetal Alchemist fandom has been uncapable of seeing past his masks and still label him as arrogant, flashy and cold-hearted.


Ambition


We are never given any concrete information: Havoc hints at a promise Roy made to Hughes, Hawkeye talks about the "goal" of the person she has to protect, Armstrong explicitly says that someone who has seen the horrors of the war but remained calm can help the country.

We don´t know what exactly Roy wants to do but we do know that everything he does is for the greater good of the country; it´s funny, he never sees himself as noble but what he is doing is a very noble thing, proof of (despite the usual cliche of his arrogance) his humbleness. But anyone can see just how humble he is from his way of treating people, warm and close.

I believe Roy was an idealist when younger but that changed him a lot; anyway he came from the war with renewed idealism, set out to make his country a better place, to end the years of war and dictatorship.

Now he has constructed an image of himself, as a shallow social-climber, so that his superiors don´t glimpse his real plans, for there are more rotten apples than Bradley in the military.

Recent chapters (well, since Barry the Chopper was found by Hawkeye, anyway) showed how well-prepared Roy and his people are: he has several safe houses throughout the city, communication spots ruled by the blooming mastermind that is Fuery, and more personal contacts and alliances than we had suspected (that Knox, the one who did the autopsy on Ross´ "body", turned out to be such a good friend was a brilliant move). Roy is ambitious, but he has worked hard for the right to be hopeful.

One of the things I love more about Roy is how he never coaxes anybody into his personal war; he always offers ways out to his subordinates (see Falman) and he doesn´t like to bring innocent people into his crusade. His recent behaviour towards our dear doctor Knox is very telling, how Roy commented that Knox had family, and even though he was divorced we get the feeling that Roy felt bad asking help from him.


Ishval


Most of Roy´s inner demons trace back to the war in Ishval, of what he had to do there, and his decision to turn the country from the ways that caused that war.

The guilt he feels for what he had to do there (he puts on a very specific angsty face whenever Ishval is mentioned, and Hawkeye, who was there with him, has a similiarly radical reaction) shows in the way he tends to feel guilty about everything that happens around him, he has an over-developed sense of responsability.


Loss


The murder of Maes Hughes shaped many of the events in the plot, as well as changed Roy´s way of doing thing, subtly but affectively.

We have seen Roy open up a bit with people (his close friendship with Havoc), realizing that there is always the chance of having to make sacrifices but that´s no reason to shut himself from the world. The new Roy Mustang has loosen up a bit, and it´s beginning to let himself be loved by those around him, betraying the cool exterior he wanted to keep.

Still Roy has a Hughes-shaped hole in his heart, and the wound is very much open still, as we saw when he reacted violently to Lust´s comments about Hughes´ death.

In any case Hughes´ murder made him erase the line between personal and professional in what he was doing once and for all.


Alchemy


Roy´s alchemy nickname is "Flame Alchemist" due to his control of fire. I think that it´s more than a little symbolical that his element is fire, seeing how he is (despite what he tries to pretend) such a passionate character.

With the probable exception of Izumi there is no alchemist as powerful as Roy in the world of Fullmetal Alchemist. Arakawa had even the decency and sense of realism to let him beat the hell out of the Ed (the title character, don´t forget) in the fight Flame versus Fullmetal.

The malicious comments about him being "useless when it rains" have faded since he proved in chapter 38 that he is actually more dangerous with water near than not. It also showed how Roy is a person capable of finding a way to overcome his limitations. He is nothing but resourceful, our man.

Womanizer (the legend)


The fandom (mis)conception I hate more about Roy is how most people believe him to be a womanizer, a ladies´ man, somebody who sleeps around. For me this is as hard to buy as it was to believe Roy killed Ross, I knew it was impossible from the beginning. Maybe I read Roy too much, or I over-analyze everything he does or says but I truly believe most of the fandom doesn´t read him twice, and it angers me because Roy is a very complex character as it is but if you don´t pay attention then it´s impossible to get him. But let´s get to the facts:

- Roy has recieved 203 love letters and almost every woman in East was in love with him: okay, as I see it if Roy slept with so many women as people believe, if he went from one girl to another there is no way he would have been loved by so many of them. In fact he would have been hated and resented, labelled as a heartless womanizer. No really, people usually hate that kind of man. But Roy was liked and respected in East. My guess is that all those women were platonically in love with Roy and part of the appeal is that Roy somehow seemed unreacheable. Of course he is going to get hit on by women, he is the most beautiful man they have ever seen, after all; and I might concede that he flirts (although we have never seen him doing so) but he does not sleep around.

- When have we seen Roy have a date? Once, and it was canon only peripherically (the Flame Alchemist booklet) and it was when he knew Havoc was spying on him. Since we don´t see Roy go out with anybody else we can suposse that he did this only time to piss Havoc off, or to mislead him, anyway it was more of a joke than a real date. Also I doubt very much that a person as consumed by his work as Roy has time to go out with as many women as he is believed to; he is spend almost all his time in the office (we see that Hawkeye had a day off when he didn´t), making everybody work late.

- He doesn´t have superficial relationships. It just doesn´t go with the kind of person Roy is; first of all he is not so shallow as to be a womanizer, he is too considerate to treat women like that, and he is just not the kind of man who likes fleeting romances, since all his other relationships are based on trust and affection. Roy finds it very hard to open up to people, despite his easy-going exterior he is a very reserved person, who doesn´t express his feelings often. One may argue that many womanizers are exactly that way, they have meaningless relations with women because they can´t open up, but one thing that Roy is not is selfish so I don´t think it´s the case.

Roy, in anyway, seems very comfortable with that myth of himself; it helps the image he tries to communicate, of shallowness and arrogance, so they won´t see him coming.

Touchstone (Riza Hawkeye)

I know this is not a ship manifesto and have no desire to turn it into one but for me one of the defining features of Roy Mustang and Riza Hawkeye as fictional characters is that they love each other and are in love with each other. Though I totally believe the nature of their relationship (whether consumed or not) to be romantic I can accept other people don´t; but what it´s clear to me is that Hawkeye is the most important person in Roy´s life, just as Roy is the focus of Hawkeye´s.


Riza Hawkeye is every bit of a mystery sometimes as Roy. Reserved and not very talkative the little glimpses of the passionate person she is show always in relation with Roy -take her conversation with Winry in chapter 24 where she says she has "someone to protect", or more recently in chapter 44 talking to Havoc, admiting sweetly that it´s "nice to have at least one idiot (like Roy) in life", a confession we never thought we´d see Hawkeye making.

We know that she doesn´t like the military and killing people but that she doesn´t regret her choice, because she holds a gun to protect Roy. After chapter 39 (where we saw the extent of her feelings for Roy, when she gave up life because she believed Roy was dead) she has doubted of her capacity to do so. But of course Roy needs Hawkeye in many ways, not only to guard his back, and because he loves her so and because of the very protective nature he has, Roy often (see chapter 38) feels compelled to turn the roles and protect her. Specially after what happened to Hughes, he is as scared of losing her as she is of not being able to save him.

Both Roy and Hawkeye behave very differently when they are alone with the other, like they can finally be themselves. This is a very beautiful characterization on Arakawa´s part, because no matter how many masks Roy wears normally they all fall down when he is with Hawkeye. He doesn´t mind her seeing his flaws, his weakness, he has so much trust in her that he is even comfortable enough to let her see his tears at Hughes´ funeral.

Roy: Will you follow me?
Hawkeye: Are you asking me that now?

The one defining moment in Roy´s relationship is when he asks Hawkeye to come with him to Central. He doesn´t ask the rest of his team, he just handles them the order. But with Hawkeye he has to make sure that it´s her choice every step of the way. Even if she promised to protect him long ago (we don´t know the terms: Arakawa? Flashback? Hello?) Roy makes it clear that it´s her call to leave if she wants to; it´s Roy´s very subtle way of telling Hawkeye that he doesn´t take her for granted, ever. And of course Hawkeye´s choice is to renew her vows of faith for him right in the moment he needs love and support more.

This fits very well with Hawkeye´s insistence that the decision to protect Roy was always hers, that nobody pressed her in any way

Schubes- Glad I could be of assistance! I'd like to be able to make a Royai amv (or at least an mmv) someday, but we don't have the right kind of software... or even hardware, I think. The only thing I can think of for the other line is manga stuff from the end of chapter... 57... was it? Somehow, I just don't think that'd work... (*is sarcastic* Hmmmm... I wonder why... *stops with the sarcasm*)

paca- That is so completely AWESOME! The Royai stuff, I mean. (I'm sure you are, too, though!) Oh, and hi. I'm one of the new ones.
Ice_Alchemist578
paca-wow! massive post! But AMAZING its so great! i actually loved it so much!

jacksparrow589-HI! i don't think i've said hi to you yet, but i do believe you reviewed my Meet the Parents story, maybe not i might be confused lol anyway! It's great to see you on the Royai post w00t!
Amethyst Sunset
Ice - Thanks. ^^ When people talk about Roy and Riza's past, they think of how he learned alchemy and the Ishbal rebellion. I wanted to take things further back and talk about their childhood, so I wrote the story. ^^; It's quite a challenge though, since I've had to make up several of my own aspects of the story. But I had to admit - the naming part was fun.

FUN FACT: I based Nicholas Hawkeye off Nicolas Flamel. Both have wives named Perenelle. wink.gif

Paca - *glompage* I think I saw all that on a site somewhere... happy.gif But thanks for posting it for easy access. XD

And speaking of HP7...more than halfway through the book now, bought it with some birthday money. XDDDDD

...

A.S. has no classes today (and now she's procrastinating her homework for tomorrow XD) and will try to work on her fic as much as she can. After all, it's going to get even more complicated later on when Roy officially begins alchemy lessons under the watchful eye of his teacher...
Reta McClain
So Edamame suggested that I should post this here...

title: Not Just A Tomboy
pairing: Royai
rating: T overall
summary: Roy has come across many women during his life. One is still a mystery to him.
Note this is manga-based and spoils (I think) chapter 59 or something rolleyes.gif

A/N:
Sooo, another Royai one-shot. I'm starting to wonder why on earth I write it as EdWin is my OTP... -sigh- I was very bored while writing this one.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
For as long as he could remember, Roy had been the object of attention and affection among ladies.

One of his earliest memories involved all the neighbourhood ladies and a bed sheet he had wet accidentally. He had come to search for his mother after his usual afternoon nap was disturbed by his “accident”. At the time he was too young to change the bed sheets himself.

He had found her – and a herd of women from all around their part of town – talking about Mr. Perkins’ dog, whose favourite hobby was to destroy flowers in their boxes and beds.

He had called for his mother and told her his problem with all the seriousness he could muster, only slightly embarrassed by the situation and not because of the women in the room.

They had all gone starry eyed and went all “awww” and “coo” and “how absolutely cute and adorable” he was.

He had been three years old.

At school the girls were never afraid of “boy cooties” when dealing with him, and sought for his company a little bit too often for his tastes. They even ignored the fact that he was scared of their cooties.

When he was old enough to start dating, he hardly had any trouble finding himself company in a form of nice girl. The hardest time at this area were the first three and half months, as during that time he learned through mistakes and success. Girls practically lined up after he had the basics learned. At that time he noticed that he enjoyed blonde girls more so than others. Why, he didn’t know. It may have been because his mother’s hair was at least as black and shiny as his, while his father – always amused by his son’s popularity and mostly offering him good advice (“Never sleep with a girl or woman, unless you’re serious.”) - had brown curls with reddish hue in them. Wether that or something else was the reason to his preference, he always took a blonde (unless the girl was a total b*tch) if there was one among brunettes, red-heads and raven haired beauties.

When he found alchemy, his interest was peaked and girls became secondary. People would hardly see him out of library or his home. He was seventeen when that happened. But his yearning for knowledge couldn’t be satisfied in his hometown’s small library with even smaller amount of books on the subject.

His father had come to his rescue then, contacting some of his old friends and someone had suggested sending him to ask for an apprenticeship from an alchemist named Hawkeye. He journeyed to the next town and got the place, much to his pleasure. While there, he would constantly run across Hawkeye’s thirteen year old daughter, Riza.

Riza was a completely new experience to Roy as she was wild, tomboy-ish girl, armed with a slingshots and bags after bags filled with small rocks, dried peas and beans. Roy deemed himself lucky as Hawkeye-sensei had had enough sense to forbid his daughter from using them in the house.

She made up for it outside, though.

After his first month at the house he came to a conclusion that Riza had made following him around and causing him loads of misery her life purpose.

She confused him because she wasn’t like the girls should be (he ignored the fact that it was only his opinion). Her hair was cropped short, she never wore dresses or skirts unless Hawkeye-sensei forced her to, she didn’t use make up of any kind in any occasion they came across during his two year stay at the household.

Then he joined the military in secret, intending to impress both his family and sensei and planning to take the State Alchemist exam after few years of independent study. There, much to his annoyance, he got the most frustrating that ever existed. He was few years older than Roy and had black hair with a name of Maes Hughes. What made him annoying was the manner he constantly bragged about his girlfriend Glacier whenever he got a change. He didn’t even care if the person didn’t want to hear it. Roy didn’t but thanks to that sharp eyed (only because of the glasses perched on his nose, Roy was ready to bet) freak he remembered the existence of the opposite sex. It took him no time to make a reputation among the ladies of the academy.

Then he – after many confidence-boosting-dates like Maes liked to call them – went to confront his old teacher.

He hadn’t expected the man’s wistful talk during their meeting and Roy could sense that something was seriously wrong. He just felt the wrongness radiating from his teacher. The wrongness became apparent when blood spilled from Hawkeye-sensei’s lips. The blond man had died in his arms when Riza opened the study door. Her horrified expression was burned into his memories.

At Hawkeye-sensei’s funeral Riza wore a black knee-length skirt. That was possibly the only time when the fifteen year old wore it willingly. Roy didn’t know why he remembered the length and colour of her skirt, he just did.

For years afterwards, he would feel guilty of letting her trust her back and her father’s research to him. He had touched her, an underage girl while himself being a man already, and felt awful for doing so. He had invaded her privacy, just for the sake of knowledge. He didn’t dare to think if she felt violated and blamed him for her father’s death and being the person who now knew the secrets of Flame Alchemy.

Later, when she asked him to burn the tattoo on her back, he didn’t know how he should act. Did she regret showing it to him, after seeing all the death and destruction he could cause with just the snap of his fingers?

Maybe she did and he couldn’t help but feel ashamed of himself.

At that point of his life, there weren’t really any women. He was feeling down due to Riza’s demeanor, despite how much Maes tried to make him feel better by showing countless pictures of Glacier to his face, and then – he was called to Ishval, accompanied by other State Alchemists. In that hot wasteland he was constantly plagued by nightmares like all the others but unlike them, he couldn’t search for the pleasures of flesh while there.

There he met people who he disliked from the beginning and people who would support him for years to come.

Then he met the mysterious sniper “Hawk’s Eyes” and the world he had lived in for months after months, grumbled apart. The same Riza Hawkeye, who would fling dried beans from her slingshot at him and steal his various garments of clothing, was in Ishval, right in front of him, and made living by killing Ishvalans from her position of a top of some tower.

After the War ended with him in a position of Lieutenant Colonel, he requested for her as he knew what she had become. An apparently fearless killer with a deathly aim, who rarely showed her real feelings anymore. Now Roy found himself missing the small, carefree girl who he had learned to know years ago.

Then they got the documents about Elric Brothers and found two broken children in the small village of Resembool in a need of help and reassurance. A year later the older one was under Roy’s direct command as a State Alchemist.

At that time, for a reason unknown to him, Riza started growing her hair out and he often found his fingers itching to touch it.

He was twenty six and it had been nine years since he met her.

And despite all those years of experience women – and Riza in particular – he never expected her to come to the top of him.

Not in that way, you perverts.

¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤¤

Roy gasped as the impact with the ground emptied his lungs with a whoosh.

It took him a moment to regain his senses and when he did, the first thing that came to his immediate attention was – strangely enough – a tuff of blonde hair sticking out from a bun just under his nose. The second thing was the aching pain in the back of his head, his back and his chest, where the blonde was laying. The third one was the burning pain in his calf.

Then the blonde hair was gone from his face and by the flash of blue Amestris military uniform he identified the intruder of his privacy as Riza. Plus he could hear the gunshots from near him. And many others from further away.

“Are you alright, sir?” she didn’t even glance over her shoulder.

Roy grimaced and sat up the best he could, staying behind their low safety barrier, which, after closer inspection, appeared to be a part of the wall of the nearest house.

“Few bruises and a bullet in the left calf”, he grunted after checking.

He caught the faintest grimace on her face.

As the gunfire continued to rage around them, Roy rose to all fours, letting out a quiet hiss of pain when the movement pulled the wounded muscle. He poked his head over their barricade to assess the situation. He managed to catch a quick image of a dark haired man in black leather few rocks over before he had to duck down with a cry of pain as the bullet crazed the skin over his right eye and temple.

His cry alarmed Riza and with a shout of “sir!” she dove down next to him.

“’M fine”, he slurred, trying to get some sense to the situation. There was blood in his eyes.

Maybe thanks to the bullet he had trouble focusing to Riza’s face but from what he could make out, it seemed that worry was etched into her very features. A warm feeling filled his chest for that before he managed to get his brain into order.

He was probably delusional. Yes, Riza wouldn’t show worry, yes, he was seeing things.

Again.

By her disapproving silence he judged that she wanted to object but before she got a change to say anything, he interrupted: “It’s just a craze.”

His head was much clearer now.

“What’s out status?”

She seemed to calm down from his question. Both the question and the tone of his voice was purely professional now. They’re back to work, put the masks back in place. He had given her her safety blanket back.

Sometimes he found himself regretting all those times he had given it to her.

“We’re behind a large piece of debris at Sunrise Avenue, near the market place at the northern part of the city, cornered by seven armed men”, she recited emotionlessly, like talking about a recipe of a pie.

Roy grimaced. “Any sign of back up?”

“None, sir.”

He swore. This was not looking good.

“Weaknesses in the enemy lines?”

“None that I can point out, sir.”

Definitely not good. If Riza couldn’t point out any obvious weak points then they’re in a really deep .....

“Alchemists?”

“If there are, they haven’t revealed themselves.”

Roy frowned. Well, at least one good thing as they probably didn’t have anyone dangerous in that area of expertice. He rose slowly back into a sitting position and looked at the direction of gunshots.

“Lieutenant”, he said sharply, wiping some blood from his brow with his dirty uniform sleeve. “Tell me their locations. We’re going to have some roasted terrorists.”

She opened her mouth to voice her protests and, very inappropriately, his gaze fell onto her lips. He almost groaned but decided himself lucky that he wasn’t staring her breasts. ‘Idiot’, he scolded himself. ‘You don’t have time to think women now! Why the hell does this happen every f*!@ing time I’m in a tight spot with Riza?!’

“Do not object”, he ordered, forcing himself out of those thoughts. “We’re trapped”, he glanced into her red tinted eyes. “We won’t survive unless back up team shows up right about now or unless we do something drastic.”

Her mouth snapped shut but to Roy it was clear as a day that she still heavily disapproved his decision. Roy didn’t dare to care now, he would go to his normal guilt trip when they weren’t in danger of getting a gunshot between their eyes.

Soon they’re both kneeling behind their barricade, trying to look for attackers without exposing themselves to their bullets. Roy’s gaze swept over the much suffered sidewalk. Bulletholes littered the old cobblestones and shards of rock decorated the area. Windows in the nearby houses were broken and many were missing huge parts of their walls and roofs.

“Fifty feet on the right, behind a garden gate”, came soft voice beside him.

He made few final adjustments to his ignition glove in his hand as he turned to look at Riza’s indicated direction. He saw a shadow sift.

He snapped.

Flames shot out from his fingers towards the attacker. A warm breeze brushed against his face as he felt a stab of guilt when the man screamed as his flames attacked his flesh. He knew one of the seven was neutralized but it didn’t bring him any satisfaction.

Riza’s voice wavered slightly as she said: “One hundred feet on the roof at right.”

A wave of guilt would wash over him every time one of the men screamed, every time he had to make her tell him where the next one was, every time when she flinched.

Riza didn’t want to see him using this particular branch of alchemy and Roy knew this, even though she rarely showed it. He knew she didn’t like to see him using the very thing she had taught him to be used for killing people. That’s why she had put off their invenitable meeting at Ishval for so long.

When he aimed towards the last attacker, he saw rather than heard, the gunshot ring out. The next this was a cry of pain from beside him. Roy snapped his fingers as his ears recognized Riza’s shout.

He didn’t bother to check if he hit before diving down to blonde woman’s side. Her eyes were pressed tightly shut and she was biting her lip so hard it drew blood. But Roy’s immediate attention was at her right side. Her hand was pressed tightly against it, knuckles white, and Roy could see blood on her hand and uniform.

Roy swore under his breath.

Being an alchemist and a scientist, Roy knew human anatomy rather well. And this shot could be bad, depending on how deep it was. However, he was 99 percent sure that the bullet had hit her right kidney and if they were unlucky, it could have also hit her liver or even the pancreas. Be it that way or another, she wouldn’t be doing any work for awhile. Nor shooting.

“How… bad is it?” Riza asked through clenched teeth.

“At least the right kidney”, he answered, starting to take his uniform jacket off.

She regarded him quietly for a moment with her gaze. “What… are you doing… sir?”

“To dress your wound the best of my ability”, he grunted, laying the blue jacket to the ground beside him.

He was slightly surprised that Riza let him tear his under shirt into shreds and dress her wound without protest. And she was avoiding his eyes.

“And now… what?” she questioned after a moment of awkward silence.

Roy frowned thoughtfully, contemplating their options.

“We wait for a back up or clean up team”, he said at last.

Riza grimaced at his words. “You know… it might take… hours… right, sir?”

Roy sighed. Yes, he did know.

They had been sent to catch a bunch of terrorists terrorizing the city. They had found them, twenty terrorists in total, from their hide-out rather easily thanks to Maes and his Intelligence network.

Then they had gotten separated from their team in a battle that had ravaged through that part of the city. Luckily they had managed to evacuate the civilians as they had caused quite a lot of destruction.

That’s why it might take hours for someone to find them. The battle had taken place in such a large area that someone appearing to their current location to clean up first was next to impossible as they were so far from Headquarters.

The bullet in his calf might not have been quite that bad but it easily prevented him from walking and dragging Riza with him to the nearest hospital. So the only thing they could do was for someone to find them and hopefully not the rest of the terrorists.

Roy glanced at Riza from the corner of his eye, pondering how to make waiting more comfortable for the both of them.

He crawled to lean against the wall near Riza’s head. She ignored him, possibly in the favour or pain. He picked her head up gently and placed it into his lap.

Her eyes shot open and stared into his onyx ones in shock. “W-what are you d-doing, sir?” she squeaked, something completely new to Roy.

He gave her an impish grin. “Making you more comfortable”, he said, faking his usual smugness and confidence.

Now Riza blushed, which amused Roy greatly. The last time he could regal her blushing was when he accidentally walked in when she was at shower soon after he moved to the Hawkeye household. Come to think of it, he had blushed too, even though he wasn’t sure why. Her figure had been very child-like back then and at that time hadn’t been confused by breasts for quite some time. Then why had he blushed?

He looked down at her pale face, taking in the dirt on her cheeks, the closed eyelids and the strands of blonde hair framing her face. Roy felt his breath hitch in his throat, for the first time in years because of a woman’s beauty.

He didn’t know why he had never noticed it before, that Riza was actually beautiful. Maybe it was because his first impression of her had been a small and scrawny tomboy with a slingshot and later she had turned in to a comrade in arms and then into a subordinate and someone he could trust. He had seen her as a man among his unit and the military. Never a woman.

He frowned and shook his head. Now wasn’t the right time to think about things like this.

He leaned his head back and shut his eyes, letting his other senses to take over. A slight breeze on his face… bringing a smell of charred and burnt flesh into his nose… gunpowder was still lingering in the air… Riza’s shampoo that reminded him of vanilla… her soft hair under his fingers…

Roy’s breathing evened and he knew no more.

OMAKE


“I told you, we weren’t having ‘a moment’!”

“Aww, c’mon, chief. Everyone knows you fancy her.”

-stuttering and useless protests-

-sniggering-

SNAP.

BOOM.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
A/N: Yup, Roy lost it xD I was too lazy to write anything else so I wrote an omake for you. So Havoc and co. found Riza and Roy sleeping and because Havoc is cool and spiffy he went to outmouth Roy xD
Amethyst Sunset
Reta McClain - Hey, good to see you 'round this thread! Awesome work, btw. happy.gif Haha, love the omake XD

And to keep on-topic...

Here's hoping for Royai in chapter 74! XD I can smell the big battle scenes already...lots of opportunities for Royai...
Triss Hawkeye
@Reta McClain: Oh. My. Goodness. I LOVE that story! biggrin.gif And the omake at the end, that was very good. *squees*

(Off-topic: Over halfway through HP7. Loving it to bits.)
Reta McClain
Hiii, thanks for the both of you ^o^ I love positive comments (and it was the third time I wrote anything related to Royai... I think I'm good xD).

[offtopic] HP7 is a good book biggrin.gif I had it all done 05.24 a.m. July 22nd xDDDDDD
CodenameElizabeth
Reta, that fic almost brought a tear to my eye... (I said *almost*... crying is against my religion or something. But it got me close...)

Paca, I have no idea where that post came from, but it was really interesting. Very pstchologically deep. I enjoy reading things like that. It really made Roy's character seem human. I especially liked that parts that referred to his reactions to Hughes's death.

Not finished with HP7. Barely even started! Had to read book 6 again, because I forgot most of what happened in that one except for the stuff at the very end SNAPE KILLS DUMBLEDORE!! OH NOES!!

A HP7 observation: Only read the first 3 chapters so far, but when the obituaries in the Prophet explained that Dumbledore may have known some "dark magic," I was wondering if he doesn't have a Horcrux of his own hidden away somewhere. Maybe he killed someone during the original war with Voldemort and was able to seal his soul... Hmmmm... I need to finish the book tonight and tomorrow, since I don't have to go to work.
sharpshooter_riza_hawkeye
Wow, I log on, and look who's in the topic, and it looks like everyone, lol. HI!

Reta McClain: I love it! Very good job, the omake was cute.

paca: thanks for posting those, they're very interesting!


Uh...*is ashamed* I've been...*laughs and bangs head on the wall* I hate to admit it guys, but I've been doing some Mustanging of my own. Yeah, that's why you haven't seen anything updated lately. Been busy, and even when I had the proper amount of time to sit and I write, I did a Mustang and just....whew spaced off. So yeah....

But um, I'll be updating SOON, I promise.
jacksparrow589
Reta McClain- Brilliant! Excellent stuff! I like it all very much, including the omake. I'm glad that you write Royai, even if you like EdWin better!

Ice Alchemist578- Yeah, that'd be me. I get a little distracted when I'm reviewing sometimes, though, so if my reviews just kind of jump from thought to thought... sorry. I'm on a shared computer. It's a cute story, though!

CodenameElizabeth- You have no idea how badly I want to spoil the story right now. But I won't, I promise! I just have to keep the reply short so that the spoiler bug doesn't take over.
Reta McClain
CodenameElizabeth: Oooh, you don't know even half of it tongue.gif *referring to HP7* I hate the epilogue, by the way. Though I love the end of 11th chapter xDDDDDDD GO KREACHER!!!!!

everyone: Haha, I had way too much fun while writing the beginning of the fic and omake at the end tongue.gif I just wanted something "light stuff" at the end and I was too lazy to write anything longer.

EdWin was my first love fandom-wise (ignoring our favourite shorty, of course tongue.gif ) and I barely read Royai. I write it because... I can't think of anything to write EdWin-wise >.<
CodenameElizabeth
NOOOO HP-SPOILERZ!!!! (Not yet, anyway... Gotta Finish! I'm actually surprised I haven't been spoiled yet sonce its taken me so long to read the darn book.)

MUAHHAHHAAA!

Thanks, I made it myself immediately after I found the cover of Vol. 17^^
O.O She's your favourite too?! YAY!

I wanna cosplay too *pouts* I have once cosplayed as Riza from Vol. 8 (meeting with Barry the Chopper) but I have way too much to do (and way too little money) to start making costumes (I made a robe before HP GoF movie and it's still all intact and I've used it only twice *sigh*).
Menelvir
Tombow, aye, I'll try to read Anne Packrat's fic soon! I'm a little tired now, so perhaps tomorrow? I'll give you my rating when I'm done! smile.gif And don't worry about being naggy with the ratings and stuff. We know you mean well... happy.gif

Reta McClain, I loved it! Loved the narrator's casual tone, loved your description of young Roy and Riza, and loved the way you shifted smoothly from a omniscient narrative to a third person aligned to Roy. Best of all, I loved the omake. It adds an interesting flavour to your fic. Please write more stuff, and show it to us!!

Liz, for some strange reason, I've been going back in time and digging up all the old theories from before HP7 came out. I've read that theory before. And I don't like to give away spoilers now, I think this hardly counts, since Rowling herself said this before HP7 came out. Well, I'm not sure if you want to know, so I'll just put it in spoiler tags anyway: She said that Dumbledore is definitely dead. So sorry about that... I know, I was disappointed when I heard that, too...

For everyone who read my fanfic, I realised this morning that I totally forgot to add a bit I wanted to add in Chapter Nine! On hindsight, I think there are many things I want to change, and I'd rewrite the whole thing if I could. But since I'd already published it, I thought I'd just add this little scene, which doesn't change the plot very much, but is sort of a treat for you Royai fans: a kiss scene.

QUOTE
...without warning, Roy turned, his arms reaching out to grab her. Suddenly his lips were on hers, breathless yet warm and sweet. Riza’s hairclip made a soft thud in the ground as her hair fell loose. Roy, with one hand in Riza’s hair, and one hand caressing her back, pressed her body close to his, as though trying to fuse the two together. Riza, stunned at first, soon began to participate passionately in the kiss too, her heart beating in acceleration.


Heh, there's a bit more to that, so just skip to the bottom of Chapter Nine, if you want to read it... Sorry, 'cause I just realised I'd nearly finished a Royai piece... without a kiss scene...

In other news, Chapter Ten: A Gatecrasher at the Wedding. Oooooh, I wonder who... *winks knowingly* Thanks for reading, guys!

EDIT: Tombow, I finally got down to reading Chapter One of Anne Packrat's A Confusing Midday, and I think it deserves every bit of the M rating it has... Umm... Actually, it wouldn't be so bad for a 11 year old to read, because he/she probably won't be able to tell what on earth is going on...

In Anne's defence, I'd like to say her writing style is really witty. She did have me in giggles sometimes, especially when Al let another cat into his armour... Even the sexual innuendo that was the bulk of the chapter was pretty amusing, just not for innocent eyes. Sorry...
Twilightz
I made this probably in 5 minutes. Nothing too fancy. Sooo... Random Royai sig. ph34r.gif

Holycrap, TwilightZ, I don't think I ever told you how much I adore your Roy/Hughes sig too... <3 <3 <3...

Oh, and just something random that I naver responded to:

QUOTE
I know this sounds pretty ridiculous, but I was just wondering what kind of summer cocktails would Roy and Riza drink? XDD


Hmmmm... tough one. My stupid opinions:

I wouldn't think either one would go for foofy girlie drinks like pina coladas or strawberry daquiris. I AM suspecting that they would both be more of the tequila type. Riza would enjoy a good margarita (on the rocks, not frozen... and NO salt, pls. Thnx...) Roy would like a shot of tequila washed down with a ice cold Corona. With lemon, not lime. wink.gif

Oh, and moar on-topic silliness from Otakon...


"Paperwork is SERIOUS BUSINESS, Sir!!!"

lol.Funny Sig you have there.Menevir,I'm starting to read your fanfiction,and that quote,aka,the kiss scene is the best I've ever read about Royai... wink.gif

Tombow[/b], I finally got down to reading Chapter One of Anne Packrat's A Confusing Midday, and I think it deserves every bit of the M rating it has... Umm... Actually, it wouldn't be so bad for a 11 year old to read, because he/she probably won't be able to tell what on earth is going on...

In Anne's defence, I'd like to say her writing style is really witty. She did have me in giggles sometimes, especially when Al let another cat into his armour... Even the sexual innuendo that was the bulk of the chapter was pretty amusing, just not for innocent eyes. Sorry...


Really, you think it's that bad? At this point it is just innuendo, no sex so I figured it'd probably still rate a T warning. Eh, well, whatever. Apparently I can still post the name and let people search for it.

CodenameElizabeth: Loved the pic. But of course, I love all your pics.

And i just realized...I've been telling everyone I'm going to update Chapter 7 of Temptation Affairs, when I'm really on Chapter 8. *sweatdrop* Sorry. But without further ado, I present to you Chapter 8 of T.A. Because I love you all. And Menelvir, one of these days I'm going to get around to reading your wonderful fic. Because I love you. haha, I'm feeling all lovey-dovey...

<Snip. My Temptation Affairs chapter 8 now available at FF.net!!! PM me for the link!! ^^ >

Oh and an extra thing, this song reminds me so bad of Royai whenever I listen to it. It's called "Burnin' Love" by Wynonna Judd

Lord almighty,
I feel my temperature rising
Higher and higher
It's burning through to my soul

Baby, baby, baby
You're gonna set me on fire
My brain is flaming
And I don't know which way to go

Your kisses lift me higher
Like the sweet song of a choir
You light my morning sky
With burning love

Ooh, ooh, ooh
I feel my temperature rising
Help me, I'm flaming
I must be a hundred and nine
Burning, burning, burning
Nothing can cool me
I just might turn into smoke
But I feel fine

Cause your kisses lift me higher
Like a sweet song of a choir
You light my morning sky
With burning love

It's coming closer
The flames are now licking my body
Won't you help me
I feel like I'm slipping away
It's hard to breathe
And my chest is just a-heaving
Lord, a'mercy
Burning a hole in me

Cause your kisses life me higher
Like the sweet song of a choir
You light my morning sky
With burning love
With burning love
Ah, ah burning love

I'm just a hunk, a hunk of burning love
(repeats seven times)
Menelvir
Wow, Twilightz! I think the siggy is really cute! Proves you can make wonderful siggies in just five minutes, if you have the talent. Heh, I know I don't, so I won't even bother trying...

Aww, Liz, Riza's being mean to Roy again... That reminded me of Anne Packrat's A Confusing Midday, actually... Riza really found a good way to get Roy to do his paperwork!

Thanks, Winter Phantom! You have no idea how much your comment on the kiss scene means to me. I think it's my first Royai kiss scene, and I was afraid it would turn out too cheesy! smile.gif

Icey, thanks for reading! Okay, so now I'm going to leave you all with that cliffhanger and run of to school. I won't be around for a month, so bye~

Just kidding, I'm almost done with Chapter Eleven already. happy.gif

Anne Packrat, don't get me wrong, I LOVE A Confusing Midday! Okay, I've only read Chapter One so far, but I think it was quite funny to have Ed to walk into Roy and Riza's "private moment". And your idea for forcing Roy to do his paperwork is simply perfect! I even found the innuendo very amusing, what with putting everyone in homosexual relationships and all.

But the problem is, I'm almost 19. Eight years ago, I was a pretty innocent 11-year-old. I wouldn't have understood most of the innuendo, like the "cookie" that Riza offered Roy for finishing his paper work. And I think I might have gagged on the "private moment" at the end of Chapter One.

I hope you understand what I'm trying to get at. I would recommend A Confusing Midday to anyone on this forum who is maybe 16 and above, and enjoys a little mature banter, and an occasional exposure of a rear end or something, in a fic. But if I had a younger sister or brother who is 10 years old, I think I'd want to shield her/him from that.

And speaking of mature fanfiction, is SRH's Temptation Affairs allowed? After all, it does sport some mature themes, and a lemon. Nothing kids these days won't get from Desperate Housewives or something, actually, but I think I'd want to shield my make-believe 11 year old sibling from that too.

I think the thing about Royai is that since our star couple are both adults, it seems perfectly normal to have them in mature scenes. I mean, can you imagine Ed and Winry getting it on? Honestly, I can't. But with Roy and Riza, it's a different thing... Can't say the same for the other, very young Royai fans, though...

Okay, ignore me. Maybe I'm being too conservative...

Ah, yes, and I love you too, SRH! Yeah, I can soooo feel the Royai in that song! Though the lyrics seem rather... arousing... Reminds me of a poem I wrote last year. The Creative Writing Circle, of which I was a member of, was asked to write poems with one of the 7 Deadly Sins as the theme. I picked Lust, and the result has the general gist of that song...

Speaking of the Creative Writing Circle, it was during that '7 Deadly Sins' project that I realised how many FMA fans there were in the club. I remember mentioning to someone that I always remember the sins by the Homunculi characters in FMA, and she said it was the same for her! And before we knew it, a bunch of us were discussing the series...

I think I'm ranting a lot today... Heh, sorry...
Triss Hawkeye
CNE: As always, I love the cosplay! ^^

Oh yeah guys: I finally finished HP7! Found it a wee bitty predictable, but that sort of thing doesn't matter to me with stuff like that. Good read, I enjoyed it, definitely the best of the books.

I kind of have to agree here Tombow. It seems like a bit of a double standard if something with sex scenes like "Temptation Affairs" is allowed to be direct linked to here, or IceAlchemist can link to an over 18 Harry Potter summary. They can link to these things yet I am not allowed to link to my story? I'm understand the reasoning for why I can't but I don't understand why this reasoning isn't applied in these other instances.

Basically, what I'm asking is that if you are going to have a rule against direct linking to adult material then shouldn't it apply in all cases?

Everyone - I guess I'm the only one who liked how it ended? ^^; I mean, since Harry's alive and all and I've been hoping that he stays alive, but the epilogue sounded like fanfiction. XDDDD But it was cute anyway. And yeah, he could've named one of his kids Sirius, or maybe even Remus...oh well. I liked the battle scenes. And the Ron/Hermione scenes. And the Harry/Ginny scenes. And...ah, I'm going off-topic, I'll shut up now XD

Sad though that none of the dead characters are coming back (save Harry, who wasn't even killed) but I guess they're better off that way.


Liz - Sorry 'bout the spoilers. ^^;;; Anyhow, awesome cosplay, as always!

I agree that Roy and Riza wouldn't drink those girly drinks with those teeny colorful umbrellas in them... XDDDDDD Unless of course, we're not talking about how in-character they stay...

Reta McClain - Casual!Riza, I take it? wink.gif

Menelvir > me when it comes to kissing scenes

Anyhow, keep writing!

Twilightz - <3 the sig!

Ice - Nice, thanks for the HP thingamawhatsit. XDDDDDDDD Cracktastic stuff.

SRH - All right, an update! And I love that song...hmm, it was in Lilo and Stitch, right? wink.gif

Triss - Same here, enjoyed HP7 as well! happy.gif Now it's my new favorite among the HP series (my now-second favorite is #3)

...

I feel sick today. T_T I skipped all my classes today and stayed at home, not to mention finished HP7. We'll be going to the doctor tomorrow for a check-up, as I get these really bad dizzy spells when I move too suddenly, or when I stand up from a sitting position. My mom thinks it must be in the ears, as one of them's a bit swollen right now. Ouch. >_>;;;
Reta McClain
Amethyst Sunset: Yup and I even stole my lil' bro's toy gun for it xD
Tombow
Whoa!! Haven't been here for two days, and so much to catch up!! O_o
Still having bad connections, but I better try to catch up... ^^

@Amethyst Sunset - You're sick??!! Hope you get well soon!!
BTW, I like Requiem chapter very much!! Great job!! ^^

@Twilightz - Love your sig!! laugh.gif

@Schubes - How's that AMV coming?? biggrin.gif

@Triss Hawkeye - Now you can safely read all these spoilers for HP7! biggrin.gif

@Ice - That video is funny, but the content is bit mature for some of our viewers. So, I took out the link. Sorry!! You can give out the link by PM!! ^^

@Reta McClain - So nice to see you!!! Yes, that story is sooo fitting, and I just love it!!
Love the Omake, too!! ^^ Great job!! Thank you sharing it with us!! And, BTW, please stop by more often!! We are friendly bunch, and we'd love to see you here!! happy.gif

@Liz - Nice cosplay!! But, but, poor Roy!! laugh.gif

@Winter Phantom - Welcome to the Royai thread!! You like Roy and Riza, right?? Stay, and have fun with us!! biggrin.gif

@Paca - Wow, that's a nice post.. I don;t think I have seen it before!! You always bring nice stuff!! Thank you!! ^^

@jacksparrow - Love your idea for that line!! Yes, I think that Roy scene fits the line nicely!!

@sharpshooter_riza_hawkeye - Love the song!! Oh, and I'm going to edit the link to your fic so that younger viwerers of this thread can't have direct access because the story is M rated, and it's probably better to play safe for very young viewers of this thread. ^^
(I know, I know, I was the one asked you for the link before.. So sorry!!) BTW, love the new chapter! So, the court proceeding starts!! Can't wait to find out what comes next!! ^^

@Anne Packrat - Thehe, love that cosplay pic with "Roy"!! Poor Roy can't get the break!! XD
And, haha, the wedding pic you posted is one of my fav pics!! laugh.gif
Here is a very quick translation:

Roy: "Isn't this the other way around normally, Lieutenant?"
Riza: "Beats me, sir.."
(Not the direct translation.. XDD)

@Menelvir - Wow, Roy crashes the wedding!! Love the chapter!!
I'm so into this story now!! biggrin.gif Oh, and that kiss scene is awesome!!
And, thanks for checking out Anne's fic!! *hugs!!*

And, about posting M materials:
@Anne Packrat and Menelvir - I fully agree with you both!! biggrin.gif
I think we can go with Anne Packrat's idea of simply post the title and say that's at FF.net, but no link, and I think that would be ok. Oh, and sharpshooter_riza_hawkeye actually used to do just that, too, but then I asked for the link while back in the earlier chapter, so that was my fault!! Sorry!! ^^ At any rate, I edited out the links. ^^
(I will go back and check for other links later when my connection is better.. ^^)
Thanks everyone for all your cooperations and understanding!! happy.gif


And finally, speaking of young viewer of this thread,
This OT announcement...
Happy (one day belated) 12th Birthday, Roy Jr.!!

...I haven't seen your posts lately, but I now you stop by to read our thread!!
Hope you had a great birthday!! ^^
Amethyst Sunset
Reta - ROFL! XD My sister has toy guns I can use for Riza cosplays too...though I highly doubt I can pass off for Riza, especially since I look nothing like her in the first place XDDDDDD

Tombow - Eh, I'm just glad we don't have classes tomorrow, so I can go to the doctor. ^^ Although I do hope it's nothing serious, I mean, I can sit in front of the computer and type without throwing up, so that's a good sign. XD

And as for anything rated M...well, I'm legal now, so it doesn't really matter, but yes, we do have to think of the younger readers of the thread! *flashes thumbs-up sign* Good idea!

ON-TOPIC:

It's already August, which means chapter 74 is coming...coming...*crosses fingers for Royai*
Reta McClain
Amethyst: Haha, I can pass as Riza if I wear contact lenses tongue.gif I'm just a little too tall xDDD (If 12 centimeters can be considered "little"...)

Oooh, I can't wait for the next chapter ^o^ Some Royai fluff would be nice, tho as there has been so much EdWin lately (not that I'm complaining...)
paca
@Amestry sunset: *going off topic* I've read HP7 and I liked the end too!!! Let's go on hiding the text or somebody will kill me O_O I find that the epilogue has a lot of sense to be there for a few reasons (because all the rest was a little bit oviuos xDDD), In the chap. "the prince tale" or after it...Harry is too concerned thinking about his upcoming death, so we don't see a reaction, or how he feels about Snape -protecting him all the time, while he hated it so much and had seen died, without doing anything. In the end , when he speaks to his son, we can find "the reaction" -that from my point off view , was necessary-

@All: Happy to heard that you found that interesting!! happy.gif It's longer , if you want I can bring the rest, what you say?

Happy belated birthday Roy Jr!

@Twilightz: Your siggys are improving! happy.gif Go on like this!

Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!! My winter holidays are ending!!!!! T___________T *sobs*
Triss Hawkeye
@paca: Concerning the end of HP7, I completely agree with you. While reading the Prince's Tale I did notice the lack of reaction from Harry, and it seemed odd that even though he was more focussed on his own death he didn't show any stronger feelings about Snape's courage and especially his relationship with his mother, I still think he didn't quite have enough of a reaction to that...

Um, on topic...can't wait for chapter 74! (Royai? Maybe? Please?)

Yeah, sorry about the Tomboy thing Tombow, I'm running on little sleep and brain decided not to work much. Thanks for the translation! I did wonder about it. Would you be willing to translate something else like it?
