Okay... yet once again... (For those of you who have read it, use it or ignore it- I really don't care) my contribution to the Royai Summer Fest:

A Colonel, a Lieutenant, and a Wedding

Are ya happy now?

(Sorry... I've been working on summer chemistry homework for *checks clock* about 5 hours and I've still got a little less than half to do because I can't remember how to do some of it. Ugh...)

The Royai pics from everyone are very cute, by the way! They cheered me up considerably!
Tombow
@JS - Thanks for posting the link again. ^^ Good luck with your Chemistry homework!! ^^

@riza hawkeye 9 and Causmicfire those are awesome!! I love them!!
I agree with JS, those pics can cheer up my day any day!! biggrin.gif

Quick translations for those who don't read hirakana, katakana, and chinese characters. ^^

*is through catching up* I'm baaaaaccccckkkkk, with a present.

Chapter 74 scans : http://blackenoir.forumfree.net/?t=1947240...stpost#lastpost

There may be a bar across the screen, but it didn't stop me from reading it.

sooo to explain my absence, MY COMPUTER DIED ON MEEEEE! So now I have this cool new on, and it's so awesome,a nd I'm back online again, and here.

downside: LOST THE STORIES. But I'm smart, I had them all on back-up USB cards. and such.

uhhh, Paca, thanks so much for the link a few pages back!

Thank you all so much for your condolences earlier, I appreciated them.

I don't know when I'll be able to start writing again, everything in my life right now is just a big mess and I've got to sort through it some. But believe me, the plot bunnies and the ideas aren't stopping becuase my fingers have stopped typing. So I'm pretty sure I'll be back to writing soon.

Helllllllooooooo new people, I'm sharpshooter_riza_hawkeye, aka, SRH. I have children! Haha, I love my kids, Edward and Bella. (most cleverly nto named after the Stephenie Meyer Characters, or Ed from FMA. I had those names picked out since I was like...7, lol)

Anyways, enough of my spam. I love the "Royai" scene in chapter 74 though. As for if ROYAI is Canon or not:

Lets just say, H.A. may just surpise our happy little bottoms. Or she could just be stringing us along. OR We can enjoy what people have made out of pairings from the manga and TV series, and be happy with that.

Also, we barely got any RoyAI in the TV series, and we've got plenty more scenes from the Manga. So, let's just say for the shake of argument's sake, that we'll get something one way or the other. Because there is such a thing as:

FANFICTON! FAN ART!

I know, none of that made no sense to some of you whatsoever...I'm going to bed now, lol.
riza'slittlesister
riza hawkeye 9: Thanks for the pics! AND: I meant to tell you: I love the quote in your sig! That fic (the Luzhin Defense) is amazing, I wish I could write that well.

Causmic Fire: Your family's reaction to your fanfiction sounds like mine's! smile.gif Except I've converted my younger siblings. Now the problem is steering my little sister away from some mangas...
Starrieidgirl
Hey Everyone!

So I'm officially opening the Summer Festival. I do realize that a number of you have begun posting artwork and fanficts, and no worries, they will be added!

Listed below is the game plan for the week. I hope there is something for everyone! Please enjoy. And if you are interested in Stormie's Twilight contest, please click to Tombow-dono's post.

Let the Festivities begin!

Day One (19th): Opening day, anyone can submit their fict/work/art that has been created prior to Summer Fest.

Day Two (20th): Posters can present any fict/work/art that is "in progress", so no worries about it "not being done."

Day Three (21st): Royai Treats! Posters submit a recipe or an image of food(s) that would be served at a party/picnic hosted by our couple of honor. Swapping recipes and trying them out, highly encouraged!

Day Four (22nd): SWIMSUIT PARADE!!! Show us what you think our canon couple (or other FMA character) would wear. Written description or images are accepted.

Day Five (23rd): "One Shot Thursday" Submit a 500 to 1000 word one-shot integrating these three (3) words; watermelon(s), fireworks, and...nosebleed! (haha! You thought I was gonna say bikini! tongue.gif )

Day Six (24th): Voting opens up for the "official" Summer Fest banner/recipe/swimsuit. Winners announced on closing day.

Day Seven (25th): "Closing Night!" Winners announced for our Summer Fest and Stormie's Twilight contest!

Get crackin' everyone! And have FUN, FUN, FUN!
Desu ne?
@Starriedgirl It's open? That's.. nice. I'll try to get something finished but I may end just posting WIPs/sketches/pencil stuff.

@Stormie I guess I'll enter this for the contest (I hope it goes.. and posting here since you enter like that..or? Originally I was planning something bigger but I guess this is kind of the last chance to submit if not already too late.)
Contest - vampire lesson 103
Starrieidgirl
@ Desu ne? Yes it is! and I'm sure Stormie will be excited to have your entry for the contest. And posting sketches is totally fine. I'm one of those that has her thumb in a lot of pies! So I too will be submitting some works that are not 100% done.

I've off for a few hours...bye-bye!
Tombow
It's a Summer Festival time on Royai thread! biggrin.gif

@Starrie - Nice game plan!! ^^
Recipes for the picnic hosted by Roy and Riza?? Great idea!! biggrin.gif
Let's me see.. I got to think.. What can I bring to the Royai Summer picnic??!! ^^
Since we have people from around the world on this thread, maybe some wonderful food with International flavors would show up?? Yamm yamm!! happy.gif

@Desu ne? - That drawing of vampire Roy doing paperwork is soo cute!! laugh.gif
I love the idea!! Gahaha, Roy can't get the paperwork right, even when he's a vampire!! biggrin.gif


Oh, and today is also one of our posters, Tian Ai's 16th birthday!!

Happy 16th Birthday, Tian Ai!!
Happy Sweet Sixteen!! happy.gif


And, since I have no talent... here is more Royai summer fanart by others.. ^^
(I think this one was previously posted on other thread, and I don't know the artist.. ^^)
Amethyst Sunset
Hey everyone! *ducks as watermelon and bikinis come flying toward her* Sorry I haven't been active and such...although my exams have been moved (HALLELUJAH!), I've had other things to do. >_>;;; But I did tell Starrie that I'll try to be around as much as possible - after all, I did volunteer to help out with the Summer Festival. happy.gif

Which reminds me - here's a little treat for you. I updated my story, and the chapter has a little bit of summery, little-kid Royai. wink.gif I deliberately added that in for the festivities, and also to make up for my...inactivity. sleep.gif

*bows*

You've Got a Long Way to Go - Chapter 8, (Summer) Play Date

Of course, I will also try to make another single-shot for the festival. wink.gif

~Amethyst Sunset a.k.a. A.S.
Starrieidgirl
@ Tombow-dono I think it will be fun to find out some new foods! That's kinda why I threw that in there, plus, I wanted to make this album a little different from other albums. So yay! Bring on the food!

@ A.S. Thank you! I'm glad that you may be stopping by and I've got the link to Chpt 8 bookmarked so that it'll be easier to add to the album. *throws watermelon rind @ her* (hahahaha! j/k)

@ Everyone So far there are 4 stories and one fanart. Great job! and there is still 6 more days!

------------------------------------------------------------------

As a reminder---

Summer Festival is now open. I do realize that a number of you have begun posting artwork and fanficts, and no worries, they will be added!

Amethyst Sunset
Starrie - Oh yes, I must find recipes - or at least, food! happy.gif Since I live in a tropical country, it probably won't be that hard...

I made a watermelon reference in that particular chapter, but of course, I couldn't put fireworks since it takes place during the afternoon (and it's real bright, too), and definitely not nosebleeds or bikinis. Dude, Roy and Riza are only kids in my story! XDDDDDDDDD

*takes cover* XD

Perhaps we can make some threads for festival fanart and fanfic floods? (Ah, alliterations are awesome! Yes, that was intended.) Or we can just revive the Royai fanart/fanfic threads and simply make posts for this one...
Starrieidgirl
@ A.S. Tropical foods are welcome! They'd fit in nicely. And no nosebleeds! For shame! I kid, I kid. But awesome for working in the watermelon bit. I can't wait to read the story.

Desu ne?
@natsu-hime okay, I'll try that then. So far I only know the "a" and I can't even remember if it's hiragana or katakana. xD

@Amethyst Sunset That was a lovely chapter. ^^ I haven't read the rest but I gave the first one a read too after I finished the last.

@Starrieidgirl Here's some fanarts I created before the summer fest (I know they're submitted a few pages ago but I thought it might be nice to have them in the album too.. yeah. tongue.gif Though if you think it's pointless to add them just ignore them. And tomorrow is WIP day, yay!)

@Tombow I'm glad you liked the drawing.
Anne Packrat
I'm working on an entry for the Twilight contest. Hopefully it's not too late (or is it already?), and I have an idea for the one-shot bit, maybe even the swimsuit thing even though my husband isn't too good at taking pictures. Oh well.
Causmicfire
I'm going to try and get a one shot out for Thursday *crosses fingers*
riza'slittlesister
I'm looking forward to seeing everyone's contributions! Here's mine, the final chapter of In the Crosshairs, as promised!

Chapter 1: For anyone interested in reading from the beginning if they haven't read any yet! (Yes, I'm shameless, but I'm proud of this story!)

The Last Chapter!

Desu ne?: I like the art! It's great, I can't draw at ALL.
Amethyst Sunset
Starrie - In that case...*raids the search engines...and maybe her mom's cookbooks* XD

Desu Ne - Thanks. happy.gif And, nice fanart. =D I must look at everyone's fanart...

Anne - Nope, I don't think it's too late yet. I can't wait to see your work, and Causmicfire's too!

This is going to be fun. ^^
Tombow
@Amethyst Sunset - I'm looking forward to your tropical recipes!! ^^

@riza'slittlesister - The link says "log in required." sad.gif

@Causmicfire - I like your new Royai sig!! ^^

@Desu ne? - Those fanarts will be great in the Album!! ^^

@Starrieidgirl - Nice game plan!! Would you like post that on Bulltin Board thread and invite everyone on the board to participate?? I already added some stuff on the first post (Gaha, it took me forever to write that opne!! XD) but it would be nice if you can post on the thread with your awesome game plan/schedule. ^^ Also, for some part, since I couldn't find info, I wrote some part of the info with my guess, so please check for factual accuracy, and if any part is not correct, please let me know so that I can edit it. ^^
Also, please check out my info for "other" contributions for Royai Summer Album, such as fanart, poems, etc... because I'm not quite sure if I got it right.. unsure.gif
BTW, I posted the similar announcement on Recipe thread. ^^
And, I got some specific questions: Do all recipe contest entries/or recipe contest winners included in 2007 Summer Festival Album? Also, when is the entry deadline for Stormie's Twilight Fanart/Fanworks/Fanfic/Doujin contests? Also, shall we submit Royai Festival Banner Contest entries throughout the week?? (I made it up to Thursday.. is that ok??) Thank you!! ^^

@Anne Packrat - Looking forward to reading your entry for the Twilight contest!! ^^

And, since I don't have any talent, I will stick to posting Royai works by others. ^^
I know that the artist who drew this one is someone I know... I just can't remember who. >.<

Menelvir
Yay for the bikini pictures! And yes, I agree about the Izumi bit in Riza Hawkeye 9's second picture. (btw, There are NINE Riza Hawkeyes?! I don't think there's enough Roy to go around!)

jacksparrow, relax dearie! Homework is fun! *pukes on her own homework* Alright fine, I'm kidding, no need to glare at me like that. Take it easy, chem can be really easy if you try to understand it. Need any help, just ask. I could try my hand at it! Not that I'm an expert, mind you, but it's always worth a try! smile.gif And I think I'll read your fic before I run off to do more homework... *hugs*

Thanks for the schedule, Starrie! I would LOVE to see what kind of recipes would appear on Tuesday, but I'm afraid to say I've got class till late, so maybe I'll check them out on Wednesday! And thank goodness I don't have class on Friday, so maybe I'll turn up for one-shot Thursday, and pray my planned one-shot doesn't exceed a thousand words..................... Like that's going to happen. tongue.gif

Amethyst Sunset and riza'slittlesister, sorry I haven't got much time to keep up to date with all your fics... I'll try to get down to reading it soon! *hugs*

Just gotta say this: Amethyst, you were right about one thing, college is a pain in the a**. Dashing from class to class, contending to wolfing down your lunch in 10 minutes because you spent half of lunch break zapping notes and the other half queueing for your food, and rushing home from school to finish your tutorials. Not fun at all. Bleah.

Aww Tombow, don't say you don't have any talent! You're great at making everyone feel at home on on this thread, and at encouraging all of us. Maybe you can't write or draw, but you've drawn that hidden talent out of many of us, and I'm sure you're gifted in other ways, like management. You've done a really great job on the Royai albums you know! If it were me, I'd have given up a long time ago... smile.gif
Amethyst Sunset
Tombow - Heh, I do hope I find some good recipes. XD 'Cause there are some dishes in the tropics that you'd rather not learn about, if you know what I mean.

And I saw that picture once! Hahaha, poor Roy is useless in that one! Can't wait to see more fanart, and read more fanfics!

Menelvir - *hugs* Ahhh, college. The main reason why I have been reduced to lurking, if I even get the chance to go online. XD And also why some of my fanfics are rotting without any updates. ^^;;; But we can get through this!

Thanks to everyone who read my fanfic - at least, the latest chapter of it. XD

Linking to the live preview pages isn't going to get you anywhere, hon. You're the only one who can see those. You need to link to the actual story pages like this:

Chapter 1

Chapter 17

I think I've read most of this, and reviewed some of it too.
Tombow
^ Thank you, Anne Packrat!! biggrin.gif

@riza'slittlesister - Oh my... I can't decide on the ending!! I like the sad ending.. I think it's so Riza's character. But, I want the happy ending, too!! I like both!! ^^

@Menelvir - Aww, thanks!! ^^ It's easy when we have so many talented writers and fanartists, like right now on this thread. ^^ And, yap, we can so relate to you about the college. Many of us in the U.S. have our schools starting next week. But, I'm glad you stop by for the Festival!! It's always nice to see your posts!! ^^

@Amethyst Sunset - Funny you mention... I was watching a TV show on Food Channel with this guy traveling to all over the world in search of strange food, and last night's show he was in South East Asia. XDD BTW, Starrie also told me about flood threads, and my opinion is to keep everything contained within Royai thread this time, but, I made entry on the first post on Bulltin Board thread. (Gaha, it took me forever to write that one!! XD) Maybe you could also post on that thread and invite everyone on the board to participate?? Also, for some part, since I couldn't find info, I wrote some part of the info with my guess, so please check for factual accuracy, and if any part is not correct, please let me know so that I can edit it. ^^

I posted the same questions to Starrie, but just in case she would not be on till later and my post with the questions get pushed down on the page, I'm posting here also.. ^^ Thank you!! ^^
Causmicfire
@Tombow Thank you, it was about time I made one.

@Menelvir I've got one more week before the hectic school days start for me, and I also work anywhere between 25 and 40 hours a week. Most of my free time...and even some time that I should be working on the dreaded homework and studying is spent on writing.

@riza'slittlesister I think I started reading your story a while ago. I'm glad I've found it again. *Goes to read*
jacksparrow589
Menelvir- Oh, it's not that I don't understand it, it's that this was stuff my class did at the beginning of last year, so I'm trying to remember it, and it's not going well. My dad's pretty good at it, though, and my mom can sometimes help, so I think I'll get it done. Thank you, though!

While I was babysitting yesterday, the girl I was babysitting wanted to color, so I got a smaller piece of paper and drew a little... logo, I guess is the closest word to it, for the Festival. Later on, when I got home, I drew it on a larger piece of paper and added detail. Now, since my drawing skills are few, it doesn't look that good, but I was thinking of scanning it or something and... well, do you guys want to see my efforts, or would it be better if you didn't? I don't know how long that would take me (being somewhat mechanically inept), but the offer is open.

I made a one-shot for Thursday! It could use a lot of fine-tuning, but I have a few days to do that, right?
riza'slittlesister
Tombow: Thanks for pointing out the problem. It was kind of late here and I made a stupid mistake, as you and Anne so kindly pointed out and fixed. I agree with you on the ending. I thought the train ending was more realistic, but I didn't want it to be sad, so I just tacked on the happy ending. It's not as realistic given the circumstances, but I wanted it to be happy, darn it.

Anne: Thanks for fixing that. Sorry I didn't notice sooner, I was half asleep at my keyboard and made a stupid mistake. *blush*

Causmic: I hope you enjoy it!
Menelvir
Thanks Amethyst! Yeah, we'll get through it! happy.gif

Causmic, yes, I did take some of my homework time today out to write my one-shot. Which I sort of abandoned after it exceeded 1000 words. Wonder if anyone would mind if I post something too long on one-shot Thursday... Hehe...

Tombow, thanks! The way you always have something nice to say to everyone, I won't be surprised if you're as much a lady's man as Roy!

Show it to us, jacksparrow! I'd love to see your little logo! And don't worry about having few drawing skills. Mine come up to exactly zero! tongue.gif

AWWW MAN!

Visit My Deviant ART



^__^ ok back on track to royai!!!

Im not sure but ummm.... here's the lil bit i did do for the summer festival if anyone hasn't already seen it ;D
Royai Summer Festival 2007 AMV
Desu ne?
@Tombow Don't say you don't have any talent! You always have something nice to say to everyone.. I think that is a great talent! smile.gif

@riza'slittlesister I only read the last chapter, but I liked it. Having the "sad" and "happy" endings were a nice touch.

And now, it's the 20th which means.. not-done-day! =D Haha so now I will bring on ..my lousy sketches (won't finish them unless anyone specially request it) and one WIP that I'll try to finish before the festival ends.

Sketches:
On the train
The tie (yes he should know at his age but.. xD)
Rainy day
Continuation to the above?

WIP:
Peaceful Day

Here's a small pic done "oekaki style" to make up for all the WIP- and sketchy-ness (made in photoshop but I set myself certain limitations. cheated a bit at coloring though since I used pressure sensitivity but that doesn't matter ^^'):
"Oekaki-style" Roy and Riza

Come on, everybody! Bring on your stuff! ^^

Edit: Haha, two people posted while I wrote my post. xD

@Schubes Haven't seen yet. :3 *watches*

In the realm of Royai stuff that just isn't working: I just hit one little snag: I STILL can't use the AddReply button, and I don't know what sort of bearing that might have on putting up a picture (can someone point me in the right direction as to how to do that?), since I don't use DeviantArt or Photobucket or anything like that. And to answer the unasked question, I'm on a shared computer, so if I screw it up by joining a site and something somehow malfunctions... Not fun-ness, and that's putting it VERY mildly. Apparently, I'm already pushing it by being on here and fanfic.net.

In the realm of Royai stuff that I CAN do properly: Still working on typing up and editing the oneshot for Thursday. It's not my best stuff, since I was writing at 10:30 pm, when I'm usually sleeping, but I'm still going to give it a try.
Tombow
@Causmicfire - You work and go to school?? And have time to write all those awesome fanfics?? Wow!! I'm in awe!! happy.gif

@Schubes - Glad you checked in today!! We still have many more Festival activities!! biggrin.gif BTW, this is the first time we have an AMV contributed to our Royai Album!! It's awesome!! ^^

@Desu ne? - OMG, those Roy and Riza drawings and the WIP are so good!! I love them!!
I really like your style!! happy.gif

@Menelvir - Aww.. thanks!! ^^ And, of course it's up to Starrie and Amethyst Sunset, but my guess is that I highly doubt that they would mind!! I wanna read your creation!!! ^^

@riza'slittlesister - I agree, it's less realistic, but the happy ending made me go awww... happy.gif

@JS - I second Menelvir!! I wanna see the logo!! And, to that end....

@JS - You still can't use ADDREPLY button? Hmmm.. in that case, Can't use ADDREPLY? thread could show you how to do all those finer posting tricks with FASTREPLY. ^^
(That one, and How to post pics thread can hopefully help you through.)
BTW, even if you are on shared computer, you can still have Photobucket account(s), since all it takes is your email address to open an account. If you can't bookmark Photobucket link, you can always Google search Photobucket every time you want to log in, and the link will come up. It's one more added step, but you can still keep your Photobucket account that way.
Or, you can use ImageShack for each pic to get the URL of the pic. You don't need to register nor need to hold the album there. Again, if you can't bookmark ImageShack link, you can Google search it every time you want to use ImageShack, and the link will come up.
Either way, you have to have your pic saved to your computer first. Right click on the pic and save it to the computer, but make sure you remember the file location and the file name. Then upload it to Photobucket or ImageShack, get the URL, and after that if you can't keep the pic saved on your computer, then delete the pic, then clean out the one in Trash can also.
(If you don't want the history of you using those sites, delete the Web history also. ^^)
It might take several extra steps to post the pic this way, but it can be done.
If you can't keep the pics on your computer, I recommend opening a Photobucket album, and use it as your place to save/keep all your fav Royai pics. ^^

So... do you think this might work?? Or do you still see some loopholes/problems? unsure.gif
Let us know if you run into some problems, 'kay? ^^
jacksparrow589
Tombow, you totally rock my world! Thanks for the tips! I'll be sure to check them out... just as soon as I have lunch, work on chemistry, actually put the pictures on my computer (which I can do without help, thank God!)... (Yeah... this is my life. It'll probably settle down after I'm actually in school.)

This'll be me once I get things set: Royai time! Woohoo! *dances around room*

Can I ask you guys something?

Why do you need a Royai summer festival? mellow.gif Wasn't Royai Day enough? Couldn't you have turned Royai Day into a full fledged 'summer festival'? Couldn't you spread your Royai events a bit farther apart? O_o;

Not to be rude or anything, but I think you guys get a little carried away.... o_o;;;;

Nvm that a general 'Pairing festival' would be funner as everyone who has an FMA otp could enjoy themselves...

@Fushigi Rockna - It's not a matter of we NEED it. Unlike many other threads, our thread is very active, and we enjoy having activities on our thread throughout the year, and posters of this thread make many many activity suggestions throughout the year. We have been narrowing them down and condensing them to few/several big festival type events per year. We have Royai Day on June 11 each year. It is mainly to celebrate the "bond" between this couple. It is different from Summer Festival. Summer festival is more of "fun in the sun, beach, bikini, and picnics" kind of fun stuff, and it is very differently themed from Royai Day. We also had Royai Winter Holidays, and Royai Halloween, Royai Valentine's Day, etc. in the past.
For each of those we have different themes, and many of us make fanarts, or write fanfics, etc. It is a good way for many of talented artists we have on our thread to get motivated with their creativities, and for all of us posters of the thread to enjoy having the activities with the commonly shared theme on the thread. You don't have to participate if you do not like it. But, we are also very open and you or everyone on the board is welcome to participate also. There are members who do not normally post on our thread, but come to our thread to participate on these events, and also we have many talented writers and artists on our board who do not post normally on our thread, yet we get contributions in the forms of fanarts and fanfics from those writers and artists for the events also. I do not think they are forced to participate in any way. I'd like to think that they enjoy participating on these events, and we greatly appreciate their participations also, and enjoy sharing commonly themed activities among members who are regular posters of this thread and non-regular posters of the thread in those events. happy.gif

Oh jeez... T-T guess I didn't miss anything at all.



But I guess I still have winter and holloween(?).
(Uh-huh...Holloween...*weird thoughts*) biggrin.gif
Amethyst Sunset
RLS - Left a review. wink.gif Sorry for not catching some of the chapters...I blame college. I shall read (and reread) when I've got more time.

Tombow - Thanks for posting it on the bulletin board! biggrin.gif *big squishy hug* Oh, and I got your PM. wink.gif I think we can include the recipes in our album, but I'll go with whatever Starrie comes up with.

I agree with everything you just said - and I do look forward to all these events. XD Oh yes, weird food is our specialty. XDDDDD But don't worry; I'll look for "safer" summer food. wink.gif

I'm afraid it's up to Stormie when her deadline will be; it is her contest after all...

Causmic - Oh...and I love your signature! happy.gif Twilightz's, too!

Desu ne - Awesome fanart! I especially like the one where Riza helps Roy with the tie...
Chibi_Girl29
RoyxRiza are the most coolest yet bestest couple in the fma manga !!XD tHEY''RE Soooo Cute !!Tough In the manga the proof that the 2 are in love is really small.
IN the anime on the contrary (in chibi party) Riza said that she and roy became a couple but then... Riza ''broke'' wit him nad she decided to find a happinnes for her own. (NOOOOO)
natsu-hime
i live in southeast asia and i don't understand about time zones...it's tuesday 21th august 4:46 PM here but heck i'll post this thing sorry if i'm late tho- *BOWS*

for the summer festival on the 20th: http://natsumi726.deviantart.com/art/summe...saster-62875731

for stormie's contest: http://natsumi726.deviantart.com/art/vampi...perior-62876364
Anne Packrat
Today's recipies yes?

We all know Roy likes to show off. Well, what better way to show off his alchemy then by cooking with lava.
Amethyst Sunset
Chibi_Girl29 - Welcome to the thread! happy.gif Oh, and I think they were just fooling around in the chibi party. wink.gif

And the proofs in the manga may be small, but there are a lot of those small moments scattered around, yes? And I wouldn't call them "small" myself.

Natsu-Hime - Love your artwork, and where in Southeast Asia do you live? I'm from the Philippines. biggrin.gif And the vampire contest is Stormie's contest, not Starrie's.

Anne - Cooking with lava? Interesting! XDDDDDD Definitely sounds like something Roy would to to show off. And if only we could try that were I live...the volcanoes here in the Philippines aren't exactly as peaceful as Hawaii's. When volcanoes here erupt, they rumble and shake and spew and it's hard to get lava out of really tall volcanoes. XD

And speaking of recipes...here are my contributions. happy.gif

Halo-halo, a cold Filipino dessert that is best enjoyed during the summer, but is actually good any day. wink.gif It even has a variation called Maiz con Hielo, which uses corn, thus the namesake.

And here are more:

Pineapple Crunch

Pineapple Ice Candy

Mocha Ice Candy
Tiramisu

It's getting late, but I'll try to find more. wink.gif
Tombow
It's our Royai picnic time!! biggrin.gif

@DjRoy - I know, you were gone for a long time!! Missed you!! ^^
But, glad you're back!! biggrin.gif

@Chibi_Girl29 - Welcome, welcome, welcome to the Royai thread!! If you like Roy, Riza, and Royai, stay with us, and have a Royai fun with us!! ^^ And, don't worry, as far as I know, that Chibi-OVA is not meant to be taken as a real FMA story-line. biggrin.gif

@natsu-hime - Oh, I like those!! That Ed and Al going O_o in the first one is so funny, and Roy's expression is priceless in the Vampire one!! Nice contest entry!! biggrin.gif
Yeah, everyone is on the different time zone, so I'm sure we have "flexible" schedule for the Festival, and it should be no problem. ^^

@Anne Packrat - That lava cooking rulez!! Totally hot idea!! laugh.gif

@Amethyst Sunset - Those recipes all look yammy!! Got to try them sometime!! And, mmm, I love Tiramisu!! And, yeah, Kilauea just oozes out lava, but Pinatubo and all the Filipino volcanoes are scary!! You guys live so dangerously!! tongue.gif
Oh, and about the deadline.. yes, please try to get in touch with Stormie and make sure she knows that she's supposed to select winners and announce it on Saturday, Aug. 25. laugh.gif


Riza taking a dip with Hayate!! ^^ (It's actually a portion of magazine pic. ^^)



Now, keep searching for my recipes.. ^^
Desu ne?
@Tombow Cute pic. I always wonder who designs their clothes for the magazine pics.. I'd like to know.

@Anne Packrat Haha.. I didn't imagine one could do something like that. xD

@Chibi_Girl29 Welcome to the thread! And I wouldn't mind the chibi party too much if I were you.. it's basically random sillyness. I actually think the proof in the manga is stronger than in the anime.

..and now it's time for me to read some fanfics and then dig up an anatomy book. It's really time I learn my anatomy, I feel like my drawings haven't improved at all lately.

As for picnic recipes I don't know anything right now, sorry. ^^'
Starrieidgirl
Good Day Everyone!!!!

I'm so sorry that I disappeared, but after my last post I had a busy schedule. But today is my day off from work, so let's get goin'!

Re: Recipes Yes! If you submit a recipe or a pic of some nummy food, it will go into the album. I'd feel it pointless to make a day dedicated to a theme and not include it. I can mean spirited, but I'm not evil

Re: Stormie's Contest I have PM'd her and I have yet to receive a reply. I anticipate that she will appear very soon. I will continue to collect links for any entries for her contest or for the Festival. It will be in her best interest to select her date of winner announcement. So for the time being, keep submitting your works, I'll just send her the links when she has a moment.

Re: Our Love of Royai The question was brought up as to why we needed a festival...truth be told, I had this hair-brained idea after I had so much fun with Royai Day, that I wanted a way to continue the fun. Especially now that many posters are heading back to school, what would a fun way to wrap up the summer? A festival!

So to those that are lurkers, newbies, or seasoned forum members you are invited to join in. Even if you are not die hard Royai fans, this is a celebration of all things summer! And I must say, Tombow-dono, your post said it all, thank you so much.

----------------------------------

Itinerary for the rest of the week:

Day Three (21st): Royai Treats! Posters submit a recipe or an image of food(s) that would be served at a party/picnic hosted by our couple of honor. Swapping recipes and trying them out, highly encouraged!

Day Four (22nd): SWIMSUIT PARADE!!! Show us what you think our canon couple (or other FMA character) would wear. Written description or images are accepted.

Day Five (23rd): "One Shot Thursday" Submit a 500 to 1000 word one-shot integrating these three (3) words; watermelon(s), fireworks, and...nosebleed! (haha! You thought I was gonna say bikini! tongue.gif )

Day Six (24th): Voting opens up for the "official" Summer Fest banner/recipe/swimsuit. Winners announced on closing day.

Day Seven (25th): "Closing Night!" Winners announced for our Summer Fest and Stormie's Twilight** contest!

** I realize Stormie has yet to make an appearance, so if need be, we will delay the winners of her contest.**

----------------------------------

@ Tombow-dono I'll go double check the Bulletin Board and Recipe forums to look over the posts. I'm sure they are fine. I'll fine tune the information if necessary.

Keep up the great work everyone!
CodenameElizabeth
OMG, recipes!!!
Now THAT is something I can do, seeing as though both my writing and drawing are quite subpar (so don't expect any fanfic/fanart from me! LOL.)

But BAKING? Oh hell yeah!

I probably have a few on my hard drive at home...
Tombow
@Starrie - Thank you!! ^^

@Liz - Yes, I wanna try some of your recipes! I bet you have good ones!! biggrin.gif

Ok, here are mine. Two traditional U.S. campfire/tailgate party foods. laugh.gif

Roy's Flaming Hot East Headquarters (Chicken) Wings
(Original recipe is here. ^^)


2 pounds (about 900g) chicken wings

2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper powder

Vegetable oil for frying

1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1/4 cup to 1/3 cup hot sauce.


In a large bowl, mix together flour, salt, and cayenne.
Pour oil into a large heavy pot to a depth of 2 inches (about 5 cm) and heat to 375 degrees F (about 175 degree Celsius) over medium heat.
Working in 3 batches, coat the wings with the flour mixture and fry until lightly browned, each about 10 to 12 minutes.
Drain fried wings.
In a large bowl, combine melted butter, lemon juice, and hot sauce.
Toss the fried wings in the hot sauce mixture.
Transfer the wings, with the sauce, to a large foil-lined baking sheet, and bake in 400 degree F (about 200 degree Celsius) oven for 35 minutes.
Serve with blue cheese dressing and celery sticks.

Blue Cheese Dressing
1 cup mayonnaise
1/2 cup crumbled blue cheese
1/2 cup half-and-half
2 tablespoons sour cream
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1/2 teaspoon salt
Black pepper

In a medium bowl, mix together mayonnaise, 1/4 cup of the blue cheese, half-and-half, sour cream, lemon juice, Worcestershire, and salt, until smooth.
Gently stir in the remaining 1/4 cup of blue cheese and season with pepper, to taste.




Riza's Bittersweet Love Chocolate Coconut S'mores
(Original recipe is here. ^^)


12 large marshmallows
12 ounces (about 340g) bittersweet chocolate, cut into 3-ounce (about 85g each) pieces
8 whole graham crackers
1/4 cup toasted shredded coconut (optional. If you don't like coconut, you can skip this. ^^)

Place marshmallows on skewers or sticks, 3 marshmallows per stick, and roast over an open fire until golden brown on all sides and melted in the center.
Place chocolate pieces on 4 of the graham crackers.
On each graham cracker, sprinkle 1 tablespoon of shredded coconut over the chocolate.
Place toasted marshmallows on the coconut, 3 marshmallows on each graham cracker.
Place the remaining graham crackers on top of the marshmallows to make s'more sandwiches.
Wrap each s'more in foil.
Place each s'more on the grill for 2 to 3 minutes.
Remove from the grill and serve immediately.
Starrieidgirl
@ Tombow-dono I'm gonna have to try those s'mores! They look scrumptious! And the pic you have of Roy being given rescued by Riza, I have faved on my dA account.

For anyone interested, here is the link.

@ CNE I read on your cosspace page that you like to bake, I'm glad that today is a perfect one for you! Any recipe(s) you can think of, post and it'll get into the album.


I will go thru our recipes and submit some for the album, not to be voted on.

Ciao!
Tombow
@Starrieidgirl - Thanks for the link to the fanart!! Yeah, I think that's AA Battery's fanart. I will see if I can get her permission to use it for the banner. biggrin.gif
And, please post your recipes!! We want yours included for voting also!! ^^
Maybe we can extend recipe due date through tomorrow?? ^^
jacksparrow589
Geez- you guys went and partied while I wasn't on! Okay, I had a friend to stay the night, and she's not as... shall we say... into FMA as I, though she's the one who introduced me to it. Go figure.

Anyway, um, still working on getting the logo-thingy up (Still mechanically inept as ever, but thanks again, Tombow, for the tips!), and still working on the oneshot. Recepies... I have none (At least, nothing original... Fruit salad, anybody?wink.gif ), but the ones Tombow put up look awesome!

As to the reason for the season -er, FESTIVAL!- I agree. It's not needed, but it's wanted, welcomed, and loved. What more reason do we need to party?
Tombow
@JS - Yes, yes, Fruit Salad!! Sounds great!! biggrin.gif
And, yes, I totally agree about the festival. Well said. ^^
Causmicfire
I couldn't resist this one! Watermelon cake! I actually use a strawberry cake mix for it, put chocolate chips in the batter, and I make my own frosting from heavy whipping cream mixed with powder sugar and a little bit of green food dye.





Edit: The image is from the web, but thats's pretty much what it looks like , sometimes you may need to add some red food dye so the cake turns out darker than the pink of strawberry.
riza'slittlesister
Oh my word, you guys, you're making me hungry! All of these recipes look so good! I looked in my recipes, but I couldn't think of a way to relatre my favorite foods, so I guess I'll just enjoy yours!

To everyone who commented on my last chapter: Thank you so much! Sorry again about the link mess-up.

Tombow: I love your names for your recipes, they're so cute!
