Well, looks like those two are interacting in person for the first time, since, WOW. Like, chapter 50-something when the whole crew got split up.

ZOMG, the bathroom scene cracked me up!
Guess I'm still immature because I laugh at toilet humor.
Amethyst Sunset
Hey everyone! *waves* And thank you, Paca, for the sweet raw! And hello, Riza Hawkeye 9! I believe we haven't met. wink.gif

Basically...I posted everything on the Chapter 74 spoiler thread (many thanks, Tombow!), but I'll just stick everything I said about the Royai here:

OMG SHE SAID IT! But hey, she said it in code anyway instead of outright, so hopefully Pride didn't get anything. Hopefully. But unfortunately, we never really know. *shudder* I love how Roy instantly got what Riza was saying. ROYAI! *waves flags* Looks like Roy's gonna have even more reason to knock the Führer off his throne...

Now I can't wait to see what happens next!


Yay. happy.gif
Tombow
Page-by-page translations/summary of chapter 74 is done!! ^^

I'm too tired right now, but just to say that YAYYYY for Roy and Riza scene!!!!!
(I will go over everyone's post late after I get some sleep. ^^)


ETA: Yap, I'm back and checking everyone's posts. ^^
@Ice - Nice to see you back!! ^^ How is the show coming??
Yap, the new chapter is out, and it's great!! And, we can wait for the update... you do the best job for your play for now, yes?? ^^ Break a leg!! happy.gif

@riza'slittlesister - Yap, you were gone, and I missed you you you were gone!! happy.gif

@Amethyst Sunset - Your post on chapter 74 Spoiler Party thread is so good, and I agree everything you said!! biggrin.gif

@Liz - Love your new "Roy in a can" avatar!!! That's just awesome!! laugh.gif
CodenameElizabeth
Man oh Man. I really need to stop drooling over Gen. Armstrong.

Jeebuz. There NEED to be some Hawkeye/Armstrong shippers out there for reals. FMA needs moar good Yuri pairings.

Anyways, that flower shop from Chapter 71 (I think...) The owner is a member of the Armstrong family, so Mustang is obviously passing on SOME sort of code with the flowers. He mentioned to Hawkeye in 72 that he was going to "send her some flowers", and said the same thing to Armstrong in 74. Hmmmmm... suspicious methinks.

Can't wait to figure out what Armstrong has against Mustang...
And the END OF THE CHAPTER WTF??!? Not gonna mention ANYTHING because of TOTAL SPOILERS!

The Riza/Roy speaking in code scene was brilliant. (I didn't get the tapping of the mug thing until I read the translation, but the minute somoene listed the names, I knoew what she was doin' there.) Makes you wonder what 'other' sorts of secret codes those two have between themselves. Muahahaaaaa!!! XD
Twilightz
The chapter was so awesome!! wub.gif

Here's a Roy sig I made!

I'm so sorry that I haven't done any sigs lately, but my brushes were so horrible so I installed a bunch of new ones. ^^

Pretty good! But you need a little black and white dog to carry around with you! Oh, and if you're in America you may want to see about painting an orange tip on that gun. dry.gif Most cons won't let you carry a gun that doesn't have an orange tip.



Anne Packrat Thank you smile.gif !!! i'll try to find a black hayate to carry with me to next con and take more pics to put in here ! about the gun, i live in Brazil and here there's no need to paint tha orange tip in ours guns, they are checked at the con entry ! same goes to swords and others types of guns !

Tombow, Paca, Riza'slittlesister : Thank you for the lovely welcomes ! it's good to hear from you again ! and Hello Amethyst Sunset it's nice to meet you o/* !

Twilightz Nice sig !!! Roy is looking very handsome the thing is, when he does not ? XD

and chapter 74 = Royai Goodness wub.gif , i'm looking for more royai nteractions on 75 >.<... afterall he might have another lunch date !!! Much love to arakawa ! i believe Royai is one step to become a canon , don't you think ?

Wait---- Roiai ISN'T canon, WHUUUUUT?
It *IS* Canon, I tell you!! IT MUST BE SO! XD

(Hey, Arakawa went there with EdWin a few chapters ago, so why not?)

Everytime someone doubts whether RoiAi is indeed canonical, I point them back to chapter 20-something where Grumman wants Roy to promise that when he becomes Fuhrer, he will "Take his granddaughter as his First Lady." LOL!!!

That's what i used to point too...and of course, chapter 39 ( Riza's breakdown), but someone told me that it becomes Canon when something like the EdWin case happens =/...anyway , i just say that people have to understand that looking into a royai view Grumman scene and chapter 39 are indeed canon (because what is royai if not subtle XD)...Totally agreed.. Royai *IS* Canon XDD

( but it wouldn't hurt if arakawa gave us more evidence ^^)
Tombow
@Twilightz - Oh!! Nice Roy sig!! Roy looks sooo good!! And, nice job making it into a fabulous sig!! I like it very much!! happy.gif

@riza hawkeye 9 - Yes, yes, we can alwasy enjoy more Royai evidence!!!! ^^

@Liz - Yap, Oivier is awesome!!
And, it's soooo nice to see a scene with Roya and Riza together!!

And, this is just for fun.. (this is not a real scanlation. XD) biggrin.gif

Cute! Though I'm of the mind that Roy is going to name one of his kids Maes.

And no, I don't think Royai is quite canon yet. I feel that it is canon that Riza loves Roy, that much is obvious from the breakdown, but it hasn't quite been established that Roy cares for Riza more then his other subordinates. (Though the whole hostage thing is a big step in that direction).

At this point I don't think either of them are thinking a whole lot about romance. In fact, it's likely they think that they don't have time at all for it given the scenario Roy and Riza expect to happen once they overthrow the fuhrer.

God, that chapter where Riza's explaining all this to Ed makes me cry every time.

QFT.

FMA is NOT a romance manga in the least. Even the heavily-shipped pairings are at most hinted at because they are not the main focus of the manga. I'm of the mindset that NO ONE is thinking necessarily of romantic relationships right now, however, knowing who is close to them and who they can trust is integral in their reaching their final goals (perfect example of this was the whole scenario that recently happened in the North. I sensed that camraderie and trust were very strong themes throughout those chapters whether it was Olivia and her suboordinates at Briggs or Ed/Al/Winry teaming up with Scar/Marcoh/MeiChan in the fight against Kimbley.)

TwilightZ, where do you get the brushes you use for your sigs? I've gotten some nice sets off of Deviantart

Wow... I've just been waiting for the 74 translation on One Manga, so I haven't said much (for me, anyway). That, and I've been busy with stuff in and out of the house. Stupid 20-year remodel. Stupid summer homework.

Anyway, about the Royai/canon thing. 'Tis true. Much as I dislike to admit it, it's not exactly canon. EdWin is, though not blatantly except for Winry saying it and Ed getting as close as he ever will to admitting it to someone else. Sad, but I think I'll live. I mean, it seems more like Roy & co. are one big, happy, somewhat dysfunctional family with all of them together. It's just that if you isolate Roy and Riza, well, I see building potential. Lots of it, too.

Also, FMA is explicitly stated as an action manga. That doesn't mean it can't have other elements, but it's certainly much more action (and heavy stuff) than romance. Romance is good and all, but it wouldn't be there without the action, wouldn't you say? Or am I just crazy?
Tombow
@natsu-hime - Cute drawing of a FMA *coughRoyaicough* family!! biggrin.gif

@Ice - Wow, the opening of your play is tomorrow night?? Best luck, and break a leg!!
And, yeah, I loved that Roy and Riza scen in the new chapter!! ^^

@JS - Yeah, translations are out everywhere (except ZOMGFT. I'm still waiting.. sad.gif )

And, about Royai in FMA... Haha, yeah, I would never expect Harlequin Romance Novels out of FMA. Nor I want to. So, if it has to have "Love" word uttered by one of them, or some kissing scenes or whatnot to unequivocally prove to some people that Royai is a cannon, we may never get such "proof." What I see in FMA are strong bonds, between Ed and Al, Ed and Winry, Mustang and his subordinates, and in recent chapters Olivier and the Northern "monolith" army, and yes, Roy and Riza. Some people call some of those "love," and others may call with other names. Whatever Roy and Riza have between them, I can see it's very strong, and I can see they deeply trust each other, and I dig it, enjoy it, and continue to 'ship it. smile.gif
I will continue to hope for more definitive "Royai moments," but with the number of remaining FMA chapters dwindling, I will take whatever the Roy and Riza scenes I can get. (And, there are always fanfics to explore for those who need more "romance" out of FMA world. ^^)

I was bored and hadn't posted in a while so I just decided to drop by and say hello to everyone. biggrin.gif

I made a new thing for the beginning of my amvs haha a little more everyone friendly? well at least more than the finger =D

O speaking of amvs i wanna make a new one but i have yet to come across just the right song. =( i hate when i hit road blocks like this
I have made another amv but sadly it's not royai. If anyone likes Bleach I'll leave the link in case you would like to watch it. =]
Paralyzed - Finger 11 - Bleach - Ichigo & Rukia

so what's up everyone?! not much here lol getting ready for my concert im going to on friday. 12 hrs out in the sweltering sun listening to 11 different bands. with all the stuff im taking with me, u'd think i was going on some safarii blink.gif

@Schubes - Nice to see you!! biggrin.gif
Hey, you got a new front for your AMV!! It looks really nice!!
(Yes, much friendlier than the fingers. laugh.gif )
I'm still having super slow net connection, but I will check your AMV when I get better connection!! ^^


As for myself, I'm still trying to shift through new informations we got on FMA chapter 74.
Right now many theories, and no definite answer about what we saw in chapter 74. ^^
There are just so much stuff in that chapter!!! ^^


And meantime... this is such a fun fanart I have to share it!! XDD
It's done by one of our newest member to our board, Desu ne?.

If you're curious look for "Paperwork" by Anne Packrat on fanfiction.net. As you can probably guess, it's rather dirty. cool.gif
Starrieidgirl
Oh my!

@ Tombow-dono Thank you for all of the wonderful work of providing us w/ a translation! [double thanks for rearranging my previous post!]

-----

Royai Canon: Hmmmmmm...I think there is something to be said in what has been said. But I'm also a believer in what is not said. There is a ton of evidence implying that there is something between Roy and Riza, but we will not get a straight answer, not yet anyways.

Summer Fest: I'm sorry that I've been away so much! I've PM'd Amethyst Sunset w/ a couple of ideas. I'm just trying to remember what week the Fest was to be happening in...I'll go back and look to refresh my brain.

Be back soon!
Tombow
@Starrie - Nice to see you!! ^^
The Royai Summer Festival period I suggested was the week of Aug. 19, and ending on Aug. 25. Saturday, with probably the annuncement of Stormie's contests winners on the last day.
But, whatever you and Amethyst Sunset can come up with is fine with me. happy.gif
Oh, and after all, you were right all along with Mustang's spelling of Bradley/Bladley. ^^

@Anne Packrat - Haha, yeah, I bet some "motivation" would help Roy to get his work done fast. biggrin.gif
Desu ne?
Hi everyone. ^^

Tombow pointed me to this place when he posted in my fanart thread. So here I am. I'm new to the board and I have a soft spot for the Roy/Riza pairing. Me stumbling upon FMA itself was pretty random, since in the first place I never considered checking it out, but one day I was bored and the article on FMA on wikipedia. Then I watched some amvs of the anime, read the first few chapters. What may have started my liking of the Roy/Riza pairing might have been the scene in the anime where Riza cries over Roy whom she believes to be dead (saw it in an amv so I didn't have the context or what happened after). It made me go "What? He dies? What happened here? I want to know." I started searching for the anime episodes but I didn't find a lot, so I read more of the manga instead.

I'm liking it a lot (especially the military parts xD I tend to read the Ed & co parts less carefully). Well, anyway I won't turn this post into an essay..

I saw Tombow already posted the one of my pictures.

Here is another with Roy and Riza in it, dressed as waiters and with err.. cat ears.
Roy and Riza as waiters

Anyway I'll stick around I guess.
Tombow
@Desu ne? - Welcome, welcome, welocme!!!
Glad you made it here!! We are the longest character discussion thread, and IMO, one of the friendliest threads on our board. I bet you're gonna like it here!! happy.gif
Yes, we talk about Roy and Riza and Royai, and we go on and on and on. ^^
Just relax, and pull up your chair, and join us for the Royai fun!! ^^

* This is a part of passage from the series:
"I turned to see him spring lightly up the porch steps, his hair windblown from running. He pulled me into his arms at once, just like he had in the parking lot, and kissed me again.
This kiss frightened me. There was too much tension, too strong an edge to the way his lips crushed mine—like he was afraid we had only so much time left to us."

@ Desu ne? - hai hai irasshaimaseee! btw nice nekomimi roiai ^^

http://luckysevenstars.deviantart.com/art/...s-part-53188358 >>> another roiai art from my photography account. no photomanipulations i use scanner, harry potter book, tea-dyed paper, printer, and candle ^^

and i think i know why june 11 is roiai day (i think somebody else must've thought of it too) 11th is the day of the month when shonen gangan is published in japan and why is it june there must be something 'roiai-ish' in the chapter that was published in june between 2004-2005 (since i think the term 'roiai' is used before 2006) maybe it's the first chapter where arakawa show roiai hints, or the first chapter where they showed up or the first tankoubon release (gotta check the old archives for that) i check on birthdays too but sadly arakawa-sensei is too lazy to thought up her characters' birthday so and i checked the jap seiyuu birthdays but it didn't match too (roy - toru ookawa, february 28 1960, riza - michiko neya, october 4 1965) and US seiyuu birthdays are impossible because the term 'roiai' appears long before they aired it in the US

sorry for posting junks tongue.gif
side note: i shared the same birthday with travis willingham! >.<

@ Everyone

So I finished tallying the votes for the swimwear poll, and here are the results:

Riza's color: red (1), pink (2), black (2), and blue [in various shades and hues] 7!

Roy's style: speedo (1) and an overwhelming 10 for shorts!

@ Twilightz I'm such a putz! I would LOVE for you to create a Summer Fest banner!

That goes to anyone else as well! I looked thru a list paca had put up a few pgs ago of some DA links, and they have gotten me motivated!

Go team go!

So start your artistic engines! For the Summer Fest starts Aug 19th! (That's about 3 days away! ohmy.gif )

K! I'm off for bed...I'll check in about eight hours.

Desu ne?- Hi there! I like the two fanarts I've seen so far. Seems like everybody can draw better than me, though. Still, they're great! I love your icon, too.

Starrieidgirl- Yay for Roy in shorts! And ack! August 19th? Great... I'm not gonna get anything (fanfic or otherwise, not that you want the otherwise) done by then! Oh well... I'm sure there'll be lots of good stuff. I'll console myself that way. If it's Royai and it's good (and knowing this thread it will be plenty of both), I'll look at it.

EDIT: (Yeah, like, 2 seconds after I posted) The only thing I have that's remotely summer-y is "A Colonel, a Lieutenant, and a Wedding", which I think I have a link for somewhere back there. Yeah, that's it. I don't have anything for the Twilight thing at all. So, um... could that be a contribution or not?
Starrieidgirl
@ Twilightz Whatever you are thinking, it'll be great!

@ jacksparrow589 No worries about not having anything for the 19th. It'll be a week long event allowing lots of time for ppl to submit something. So you actually have until the 25th. And anything you create that this Royai related will be appreciated. I didn't offer a whole for Royai Day. So I know how you feel. But anything you think of wanting to contribute would be awesome. And you are also welcome to be an assistant for Amethyst Sunset and I. Let me know what you think.

@ Kenji What!?!?!?! Come back soon! The Royai Summer Fest starts the 19th and goes until the 25th. Please stop by if you can.

--------------
Sorry it's so short...but I have to finish getting ready for work.

Ciao!
Kenji

I'm not going anywhere...
only I'm not gonna log in here as often as before...
Desu ne?
I'm glad you guys liked my drawings. ^^

@Tombow That Royai fanwork contest thing looks interesting, I guess I'll give it a shot. It'll be interesting to see what others come up with as well.

After that I should probably focus on my own manga again.. I've been neglecting it a bit lately. >.<

Edit: I already have an idea. ^^ It's not incredibly romantic.. more like serious.. but what I think Royai is very much about. It's one entry per person, or? (Asking since I'd love entering something humorous/cute as well if time allows)
Menelvir
Hi eveyone! Bleah, I did warn that I would start to get busy with school... Well, it finally caught up with me... So sorry for the long break... Can someone help with a little update here? Thanks!

Anyway, a little update on my end: I got my new laptop last Wednesday, and after two late nights, it's up and running! And the best part is that it's a tablet pc. So once this baby starts recognising my horrible handwriting, I'll be able to actually write more Royai fanfics. I'm planning to try it out for my Summer Festival piece, so pray that it works! smile.gif

And I see the dates for the Summer Festival, posted so kindly by Starrie. Thanks, dear! I hope to be able to pop by more next week, especially with my timetable more stabilised. Again, this is a hope, so don't be too hopeful, alright? Heh.

Oh yes, as you all may or may not have noticed, with Chapter 12 and the Epilogue up, my vampire!Roy fanfic [u]Twilight Dreams[/i] is done! Now, assuming I'm not too late,I'll pm it to Stormie, and I can disappear for another few days... tongue.gif Here's a good time to thank everyone for their constructive comments and encouragement. This is one of the reasons I don't like long projects: I'm rarely very motivated. So, to have completed 13 chapters on a fanfic is quite a great achievement for me, and it's all thanks to you guys! *hugs* Heh.

That said, here's wishing everyone a happy Royai Summer Festival! Happy Royai-ing~ happy.gif
Starrieidgirl
@ Desu ne? Hi! I'm working to organize the Summer Royai Fest. It will start August 19th and will end August 25th. If you have ideas for any fanart/fanwork/fanfict, you are welcome to post it now. Then any submitted works will be put into a Summer Royai Festival Album. This showcases everyones contributions to the festivities.

And this goes to all of the lovely new posters on the thread. To give bit of b/g to the albums..

Around holidays or days of importance, thread members submit art/ficts/works that revolve around that day. The AMAZING Tombow-dono had graciously organized these works into one huge post w/ links (Tombow-dono, i'm sorry if I've over simplified your work! unsure.gif )

Amethyst Sunset and I are organizing the event and we are making plans to make the event all inclusive and displays your talents. In addition to the last day of the festival, winners of N.C.Stormeye's Twilight contest will be posted. For details:click here for Tombow-dono's post

Thank you all! And I can't wait!

Starrie

EDIT: @ Menelvir So cool to hear about the new laptop! And no worries. As long as you can stop by to say "hi" it'll be an awesome Fest cuz you were there. *hugs*
Anne Packrat
About this Twilight contest thing... What the in the heck do you mean by AnythingGoes!Riza?

I haven't read any of the books mentioned and I likely will not (vampire stories are generally not my thing), so if it's from there I need a bit more help understanding.
Starrieidgirl
@ Anne Packrat Hi, I know I haven't fully introduced myself, but the idea the N.C.Stormeye is proposing is loosely based off of the books by Stephanie Meyer (which I'm sure you deduced). There is a wonderful entry by A.S., but the "AnythingGoes!Riza" I'm not quiet familiar w/ myself. I'd be happy to send Stormie a PM to find out what she means. And please keep in mind that any summer-based fan fict will be added to the album.

Thanks!
Tombow
@natsu-hime - That Royai wedding pic is one of my fav Royai pics, and you did nice job making into a beautiful Royai piece!! I like it!!
And, you explanation on the Royai Day is the first plausible explanation I heard!! ^^
And, you just turned 16 couple of weeks ago?!!
Happy (two weeks belated) Sweet Sixteen!! happy.gif

@Kenji - Hope you are busy studying.. unsure.gif
Make sure to stop by next week for Royai Summer festival, 'kay? biggrin.gif

@Starrie - Thanks for organizing the Royai Summer fest!! Love ya!! happy.gif

@Twilightz - Oh!! Another great looking Roy sig!!
You are getting so good at making sigs!! ^^

@JS - "A Colonel, a Lieutenant, and a Wedding" sounds great!! Please contribute it to the Royai Summer Festival, then we can include it in the album!! ^^

@Desu ne? - I think you can bring in as many of your wonderful fanarts as you wish!! I would love to see tons of your fanarts!! ^^
Oh, and I looked at your manga, and it's great!! You're very talented!! ^^

@Anne Packrat - My understanding about that AnythingGoes!Riza is that Roy has to be a vampire, but Riza can be anything, like, from alternate world, or an alien, or just plain regular person.. ^^ I believe that's what it means.. I'm pretty sure... ^^
(But, you can wait for Stormie for the confirmation. ^^)

@Menelvir - Nice to see you!! Yes, the Epilogue!! You have done it!! Concluded your fic in time for the Festival, and in style!! Nicely done!! ^^
Glad you got nice computer, and your University life is stabilizing!!
Hope to see you next week for the Summer festival!! happy.gif


And, my plan to make a photobucket album for 2007 Royai Day Album is taking forever because of my troublesome Web connections, but it would hopefully be done by this weekend and I can bring it during the Summer Fest Week.
Meantime here is our Royai Day Album from 2006, reposting for our new friends. ^^

Desu ne?
@natsu-hime Haha I got some of what you said but not all. *trying to learn japanese from a website in her free time, but might buy some books on it too* Btw, I commented on your pic on da (my user there's Alet-Maon).

I thought I'd have the whole weekend to draw stuff for the festival thing but it turns out I have to work. Still, it's not the whole day so I should still have time to get some stuff done.. and there's still today as well. :3
riza'slittlesister
Wow, I'm off the computer because I have company for a few days and you guys get into a Loooong discussion about whether Royai is cannon or not... My very brief, belated two cents is that while a very srong relationship/bond/whatever is certainly cannon, a romantic relationship really isn't quite yet.

I'm definately looking forward to the summer festival. I'm saving the ending of In the Crosshairs for the festival!

Desu Ne?: Welcome! I hope you enjoy coming to the thread as much as we do! biggrin.gif
jacksparrow589
Okay... I have an absolutely stupid question that I'm sure has an obvious answer, but how does one go about contributing to the lovely Summer Fest? Like, is the link to "A Colonel..." (I do not feel like typing the title out again, though this is actually longer.) I have somewhere back there enough, or is there something else I need to do? I mean, I've decided to submit it... so, now what?
Tombow
@Desu ne? - Whatever you can come up with on your spear time is fine. ^^

@riza'slittlesister - Oh!! the ending of In the Crosshairs!! ^^

@JS - Basically, you just did. XDD All you need is to post and tell us that you are contributing such and such, and the link. biggrin.gif
jacksparrow589
Tombow- Thanks! I'm glad that's taken care of... unless you want me to put the link up again and all that.

Well, in any case, now that I've contibuted, I can't wait! (I know, I don't have that long to wait, but I'm trying to get in the Royai-Summer spirit.)
Kenji
To whom may it concern:

I'm sure I will... ^.^
natsu-hime
@tombow thank you thank you thank you very much! *GLOMP*

@Desu ne? my first attempt in learning japanese is memorizing hiragana and katakana. kanji should be the last when you already understands the grammar (it's complicated)

*sighs* i got no idea for fanworks with Vampire!roy and AnythingGoes!riza....i'll try to think of something >.<

I decided to quote everything. tongue.gif

*sigh* The Royai thread gave birth to Roy JR.
Now, that little kid has grown up to be DjRoy! biggrin.gif

Back to Back: 1 Military Personnel
Because the RoyAi 100 themes once just wasn't enough! Manga Verse chapter 58, Heavy Spoilers

I stay up way too late writing this stuff.

My Family: "What are you writing?"
Me: *Mumbles incoherently*
Family: "What?"
Me: "You wouldn't understand"
Family: "No, what it is?"
Me: *Huffs* "Fanifiction for an anime called FullMetal Alchemist" *goes back to writing*
Sister: "Oh, that anime stuff again"
Everyone else: *blinks* "Okay"
Me: *Rolls eyes and leaves the room*

Oh, something I remembered last night, when I went to the Anime Expo in Long Beach my sister was forced to go with me, because my dad didn't want me to be all alone in Long Beach, because it has some bad neighborhoods, so we're standing in line and I keep talking with my friend about FMA, and we mention Hawkeye more than once. Later my sister asked me who the "hot guy" was we keep talking about. lol

Those are some beautiful pieces of artwork!
Menelvir
Lol, Causmicfire! I hope your sis wasn't too disappointed to find out that Hawkeye wasn't a hot guy! But even if she was, a picture of Roy should satisfy her! tongue.gif

And I agree about the family thing. They who do not know Royai love can never understand us who do. I've had similar exchanges with my family... But lucky for us, there exists this thing called the internet! And through it we can find many people who don't think we are freaks to be obsessed over some anime!

Anyway, thanks for the welcome back, guys! I just found out yesterday that there's an anime club in my university. Can't remember what it was called now, but I just might consider joining, and who knows? I might bump into more Royai fans there!

Ah yes. It's already the 19th in my part of the world. So, happy Royai Summer Festival everyone!! * throws on a bikini and jumps into the sea*

@Kenji - Hope you have some time to read FMA chapter 74!! It's awesome!! ^^

@natsu-hime - I guess anythinggoesRiza can be...anything!! biggrin.gif
Looking forward to your fanart!! ^^

@DjRoy - Nice to see you baaaack!! You missed our super fun 2007 Royai Day Weekend, but you are in time for Royai Summer Festival!!
So nice to see you're back!! biggrin.gif

@Causmicfire - Oh, nice!! Yes, to your procrastination so that we get to read more of your writings!! biggrin.gif

@Menelvir - Yes, anime club!! I bet you will see more Royai fans!! If not, you got to spread the Royai!! ^^

@Anne Packrat - Gahaha, I love that MASH guy! He can be Riza's uncle!! biggrin.gif

@Menelvir-She wasn't too disappointed, considering there were plenty of "hot guys" to look at anyway, plus artwork she loved. *she likes anime/manga for only the artwork--halfway converted, yes!* And without the internet I don't know how I'd function.

@Anne Packrat-lol, my sister used to watch MASH with our great grandmother, I think she had a secret crush on him.

@Tombow-Thank you!

@Riza Hawkeye 9-Thanks for the pics! You're right the best part about the second one is definitely Izumi!

I don't know if anyone has seen this one before:
