Went to a con last weekend, but considering there was about a grand total of three FMA cosplayers I really have no good pictures from it.


Damn. Looks like the fandom is dying... sad.gif

Which con was it? I was thinking about going out to Nan Desu Kon out in Colorado this weekend, but then everyone else decided they didn't want to go. (losers...)

So I'm going to MangaNext the first week of October. Running an FMA manga panel w/ my friend Chris who cosplays as Roy... LMAO! (I think he's miffed at me for saying that I didn't want to run the panel in costume...)

Slayers cosplay FTW.
Would Slayers technically be considered "old skool" anime by now?



MUST GET RAW NOW!


It was a rather small con. Only 400 or so people. It's called Matsuricon and it's in Columbus, OH.

Heh, I love panels, I need to do more.

I think it is indeed old skiool by now.

And my kingdom for the new chapter!
jacksparrow589
Tombow- I know that picture! I've seen the full thing in an artbook at a bookstore!

Yeah... that's all I really have to say, since I have no more questions suddenly popping up, and it's that slow time of the month again.
Causmicfire
I have a question pertaining to chapters 58-61. At what age do you think Riza had the tattoo put on her back? I used to think it was before Roy's apprenticeship, but now that I really think about it she would have been too young and her skin would have stretched while she grew causing damage to the tattoo. Is it plausible that she didn't get it until after Roy left to join the military? Any feedback is welcome, it will help me out a lot with the background fic for Riza's father that I'm trying to put together.

@Tombow I love that pic, it's good as a whole and separated! I'll be going to go see the movie on the 20th, and a friend of mine, who just finished watching the series, is going to go with me. Now I just need to get him hooked on the manga.

@Paca Thanks for the link!! It's was a nice little distraction from school work!

*secret* I hope that whatever is going on takes a turn for the better!

@Ann & Liz I wish I had more time to go to cons. Have fun at your next ones! I look forward to pics and stories!
Tombow
@paca - That red letter thing is the last part of chapter 75, and it is a huge spoiler for the chapter 75. I will translate it in chapter 75 review thread, which is in progress now. ^^

@Twilightz - I think Zachelle, along with several members are currently concentrating on studying. If I remember correctly, she said she's in school of nursing, so I assume her studying really takes up her energy and efforts. Let's hope she is doing great, and we will hear from her soon, especially now that new chapter is out. ^^
BTW, yeah, we haven't heard from Amethyst Sunset for a while, too, and she is having exam I think... hope she is doing great with exams. And, same goes for other members who are studying well. ^^

@Anne Packrat - We will have more than one month till Halloween, so it will be great if you can come up with some story!! biggrin.gif
BTW, good luck with your skit!! ^^

@*secret* - Please be careful, be safe, and take care!!
Whatever it is, hope it will solve soon and you can get your peace soon. We care about you!!

@Liz - You will be running an FMA manga panel with Roy?? Oh please, please do it as Riza!! ^^

@JS - Yeah, but you need to wake up now, because chapter 75 is here!!! biggrin.gif

@Causmicfire - I know, I know, about the timing of Riza's tattoo is still a big question, isn't it?? I'd love to read your theory on When do you think he engraved the tatoo on Riza? ^^


Chapter 75 is out in Japan!!!
And, it's another big revealing chapter!! Can't wait to see the raw. ^^
Causmicfire
Thanks for pointing out that thread to me Tombow!
natsu-hime
*sigh* now i'm desperately waiting for a phonecall from kinokuniya >.< I SOO WANNA READ SHOUNEN GANGAN NOW!
Tombow
@Causmicfire - I see you posted there. Nice theory!! ^^

@natsu-hime - That's right, you are getting this month's GunGun with chapter 75!!!
I'm so envious!! ^^

My translations of chapter 75 summary from Japanese sites posted by paca are done!!
*secret*
Tombow and Causmicfire thank you for that. See I'm hypoglycimic ( low blood sugar levels ) andthe last couple of days have been bad. So all if I dont comment one day or 2 it means I'm in hospital.
The crazy thing is my sister is letting me borrow her laptop if I have to go in. Just so I can keep up with this. But I wont borrow it, I'm stubborn.
Thanks all have a good day...
Twilightz
@*secret*- Get well soon! sad.gif

I just realized that Umbrella - Rihanna is kinda Royai. laugh.gif Very Royaish... xD

[Jay-Z]
Ahuh Ahuh (Yea Rihanna)
Ahuh Ahuh (Good girl gone bad)
Ahuh Ahuh (Take three... Action)
Ahuh Ahuh

No clouds in my storms
Let it rain, I hydroplane in the bank
Coming down with the Dow Jones
When the clouds come we gone, we Rocafella
We fly higher than weather
And G5’s are better, You know me,
an anticipation, for precipitation. Stacked chips for the rainy day
Jay, Rain Man is back with little Ms. Sunshine
Rihanna where you at?

[Rihanna]
You have my heart
And we'll never be worlds apart
May be in magazines
But you'll still be my star
Baby cause in the dark
You can't see shiny cars
And that's when you need me there
With you I'll always share
Because

[Chorus]
When the sun shines, we’ll shine together
Told you I'll be here forever
Said I'll always be a friend
Took an oath I'ma stick it out till the end
Now that it's raining more than ever
Know that we'll still have each other
You can stand under my umbrella
You can stand under my umbrella
(Ella ella eh eh eh)
Under my umbrella
(Ella ella eh eh eh)
Under my umbrella
(Ella ella eh eh eh)
Under my umbrella
(Ella ella eh eh eh eh eh eh)

These fancy things, will never come in between
You're part of my entity, here for Infinity
When the war has took it's part
When the world has dealt it's cards
If the hand is hard, together we'll mend your heart
Because

[Repeat]
CodenameElizabeth
Agreed, TwilightZ. I posted that one a looooong time ago, back before the song was Top-40 material, and no one knew what song I was talkin' 'bout!

The "rain" theme wins IMO.
Tombow
@*secret* - Please get well soon!!! sad.gif

@Twilightz and Liz - Agree!! Rain theme suites Royai very well!! ^^

I will be mostly on Chpater 75 Spoiler Party thread, doing chapter 75 translations.
No Royai in this chapter. Nonetheless, it's an amazing chapter!!! ^^
Causmicfire
Ooh, yeah that's a good song. I actually prefer Marie Digby's version, it's much softer, and it doesn't have the intro. I definitely thought RoyAi as soon as I heard it.

I found an amv for it with the Rhianna/Jay-Z remix.
jacksparrow589
Ack! This is why I dislike school and then work right after: I miss too much of what's posted!

The "Rain" thing- yeahhhh.... I like it.

75 is here? I miss out on so much! *Runs off to read*

*stops and turns, realizing something* Liz- Your theory holds ground... water... groundwater... whatever the expression is... with me. It would have to have been not long after that, though. I mean, that thing is masterpiece- very intricate.

Oh, and I'm working on a new Royai fic that takes place 'twixt end of the series and beginning of the movie. Drama, angst, emotional stuff... yeah. Once I get around to finishing it, it'll be decent, I hope!

Now I'll really go and read the summary!
Causmicfire
@JackSparrowI can't wait to read your fic! Semi-off topic-- I saw a video on youtube, a remix of PoTC scenes, with Jack Sparrow singing "I've got a jar of dirt, I've got a jar of dirt, and guess what's inside." it reminded me of you, which reminded me of RoyAi, and then it made me think of a possible anime-crack scene. Roy: "I've got a bundle of cloth, I've got a bundle of cloth, and guess what's inside it." reveals Bradley's skull. ...I think it's time to get some sleep, my mind is starting to make strange connections.

I'm working on some fics...slowly. Everything in my Lit Analysis class was going in one ear and out the other. I'm not sure if it was from lack of sleep or writing my a fic instead of taking notes. Talking about logical fallacies gets boring after having them memorized from other classes.
Tombow
@JS - Your Royai fic sounds great!! Royai during that period is so much mystery to me, and I'm anxious to read what you would come up with!! ^^

@Causmicfire - Nice AMV. ^^ (Actually I think I remember seeing that one, which is a good thing, since right now I'm still having trouble watching AMVs on my computer. >.<)
And, Roy: "I've got a bundle of cloth, I've got a bundle of cloth, and guess what's inside it." reveals Bradley's skull. .. ?? XDD
That should be added to the next Roy Mustanf song file!! XDD

Chapter 75 is very exciting, but lack of Royai was a little sad. ^^

So...

We can always hope!! ^^
Desu ne?
@Tombow Lol at that pic.

It's a bit sad we didn't get any royai but we got to know quite a lot of interesting stuff, plus I LOVE the expression and pose of Izumi when Hohenheim "punches" her.
*secret*
I just thought I would tell you all I'm still alive. I went to the hospital the other morning but it should be ok now ( I hope ).

Chapter 75 was good. I had my mum print it off for me because I wasnt well but I still got to read it.
CodenameElizabeth
Hey guys! See What I Did Here???!?



XD


(Still needs about another week to fully heal. The snakes are still peeling a bit. Yes. It's on my lower back, not upper, and it's only about 6 inches high. I cropped it since I figured the sight of my back flab would probably gross you out. I'm considerate like that.)


That is all for now.
Edamame
Tombow: The picture of Roy writing to Arakawa-sensei is hilarious. Despite the lack of Royai, I agree one-hundred percent that chapter 75 was indeed exciting; I was rather shocked to learn Hoenheim's little secret. IHowever, I still have a feeling that Arakawa will have something in store for both Roy and Riza in upcoming chapters. Wow, there seems like there are so many things to tie up at this rate with everything from Hoenheim's promise to Trisha to the final human sacrafice for Father's transmutation circle.

Secret: I hope that you feel better soon! happy.gif Best wishes for a speedy recovery.

Liz: Wow, that is a seriously cool tattoo! I apologise for being a complete idiot, but what do each of the symbols mean?
Starrieidgirl
Hi Everyone! I'm not dead! Yay!

@ Tombow-dono re: Halloween, I'll do what I can. Currently I'm in renter limbo and i've got a masquerade committee and theatre company who crave my time. I'll think up something once I know for sure where I'll be living! And I'm waiting for the JET Program application to come up. Japan, here I come!

@ Liz I bow down to you! I ain't got the guts to go that far for a tat. I have one in mind, but I wouldn't touch an FMA image. But rock on that it's Riza's tat!

@ Edamame I know way back on this thread paca posted a link to a site that goes into detail about Riza's tattoo. I'll look and see if I have it booked marked and send you the link.

Okay! Time to read some sweet sweet FMA manga scans, pack and not go to Gaia. I'm addicted!

Ciao all!
CodenameElizabeth
Edamame, a good summary of the symbolism in the tattoo can be found here:

http://www.westgatecentral.net/forum/phpBB...ewtopic.php?t=2

It appears to incorporate the symbolism of all 4 elements, the circle symbolising continutity-- a very important symbol in actual 'historical' alchemy, and the entwined serpents symbolising the trancendence from a lower to higher power. (Apparantly from Indian Mythology.)

Of course, in the elemental part of the symbol, Fire dominates, for it IS "flame alchemy." I think, however, that there is more thanflame alchemy involved in this (notice that Roy is only using the center of the image to perform his alchemy.) The snakes and the cross (which IMO represents a merging of eastern and Western religions-- the Snakes symbolizing the East-- or Hinduism, and the Cross representing the West-- Christianity.) So, in relation to the Manga, I believe her tattoo is representative of the combnation of Renkinjutsu of Amestris, and the Rentanjutsu of Xing.

Look at Scar's tattoo-- this symbolism is present there as well.


Starrie-- the great thing about the tattoo is that it does not appeat outwardly "OMG FMA!!" tothe casual onlooker. I have had co-workers (including my boss-- who is an ink-junkie himself) who have seen it and said "Wow! Cool tribal design! Is is a custom piece??!?" biggrin.gif

It is not finished I want to elaborate on it in about a year, adding stylized wings to either side, and possibly incorporating bits of the Latin from the Requiem Mass in the design. (I edited it out in photoshop before giving the tattoo design to my artist in order to simplify it. It is only about six inches high.) I was raised Catholic, so a Latin Requiem incorporated into the design would actually be an appropriate homage to my faith.
Starrieidgirl
@ CNE Six inches??? my concern is if there is enough space to put the writing in. cuz i think it looks great w/o it. though having the writing would finish it off and makes it more FMA authentic. lol-your boss thought it was tribal! it is in a way.... O/T-- re: catholicism, yep me too! though i've fallen of that wagon and am walking behind it...waaaaaaaayyy behind.

@ Anyone Are there scans of the manga??? I'd like to know where I can find it. Thanks!
Tombow
@Desu ne? - Yeah, chapter 75 is totally overwhelming!! And, I like seeing Izumi again.
But, the story getting back to the current day Central, and having more of Roy, Riza in chpater 76 would be nice. ^^

@*secret* - Nice to see you!! Are you ok now?? Please take care, and get well soon!! ^^

@Liz - Oh my!! Riza's tattoo!! That's totally cool!!
If you are adding some writing to it later, how about some Latin??
Or, if you'd like to add some Chinese/Japanese letters you got plenty of help on this thread. ^^
And, thanks for the link, some good info there!! ^^

@Edamame - I agree.. we still have so many loose ends, and missing many many pictures. But, wow, chapter 75 was quite amazing.. ^^

@Starrie - Oh no.. You are in renter limbo?? Been there. Yeah, that's hard.
But, you might go to Japan?? That's so exciting!! Hope you will get to go to Japan!! ^^
And, there are scans out there.. or, if you wait till this weekend you may get more choice of scans to choose from. Stay tuned. ^^


Yap, Riza's tattoo is another thing that needs to be explained more in manga!! I hope we get to learn more about it soon!! ^^
Causmicfire
@Liz Great tattoo! I've been thinking of getting the Flamel cross on my shoulder blade.

@Tombow XD great pic!

@EdameI think this is the link Starrie was talking about Riza's tattoo deciphered, it goes to livejournal. After reading it your appreciate for Arakawa-sensei will soar.
jacksparrow589
I finally read 75 the other day. Freaked. Me. Out. The whole town being wiped out and Father's "birth" into his present body and Hohenheim and Izumi and... oddly enough, it didn't give me weird dreams. (I've actually had only 1 dream about FMA before. It was really interesting to see the characters in 3-D.)

Liz- Nice tattoo! Tribal design! Heh, heh... I haven't the courage to get ink. Nor am I "of age", for that matter, so it really doesn't matter. (To answer the unasked, if it's possible, my parents would never let me. Well, they might, but seriously. FMA? You think they'd be willing to spring for that? Or to let me use my own money?)

Tombow (and anyone else who cares)- Still working on the story. Y'know those stories about junior year being a living... four-letter-word that I will refrain from using? Well, it's not that bad yet, but it's only the third week of school. So, long story short, you might be waiting a day or five. Anyway, it actually takes place after Roy leaves (but not in the same reality as that other one I wrote, so pretend it didn't occur if ever you read both.), so the main characters are Riza and... HAVOC! But it is about Royai. It's totally the main focus, I swear! And I WILL get it done... eventually.

Causmicfire- When I was little, I used to have a few jars of dirt to play with. Really. I'm not kidding. They had a few other things in them, though. The image of Roy with the bundle of cloth made me giggle.

CodenameElizabeth
The writing won't get added to the tattoo as is-- my artist and I are thinking of expanding the design outward-- horizontally. The writing would be incorporated into the additional designs, not to the central design. We haven't decided on anything yet. I'm not planning on doing it for another year or so. I want to lose weight before doing any more ink-- especially the large peice on my thigh that I've been wanting for a while too. According to my artist, weight loss causes tattoos to shift their position due to loss of fat tissue under the skin. Your lower back has very little fat tissue, so weight loss shouldn't affect the new tattoo very much. I'm hoping that the tattoo will be motivation for me to drop those stubborn 20 pounds that have been plaguing me since college. wink.gif

JS, I actually got my first ink when I was underage. I went my freshman year in college with a group of friends (some older...) and I was only seventeen. I guess the artists assumed that if we were in college, we were all eighteen. XD

So who's going to help you burn the upper quarter of it? wink.gif

And yes I'm just kidding.

I really should write fanfic considering husband has made me a soccer widow for the extent of the women's World Cup, but I can't seem to get motivated enough.
sharpshooter_riza_hawkeye
Hmmm, yes I must agree chapter 75 is quite interesting. Izumi is so awesome. Pity not having any RoyAI. But on that note:

Temptation Affairs has been updated and finished! So if you want a link to that, PM me.

@CodenameElizabeth: I love your tattoo! It's so awesome!

Amethyst Sunset
I'm back! *crickets chirp*

Just read chapter 75. I feel sorry for Izumi. Not to mention Hohenheim. Pity there was no Royai, nor any appearance from our title character. XD

Anyhow, our first semester will end this October, but of course, before that will be our finals. *cue dramatic suspenseful music here* So I'll still be pretty inactive.

However, if anyone's interested, I'm still working on You've Got a Long Way to Go while I still have some time, and due to a bet, the Royai wedding I have been planning may be posted earlier than I expected. Watch out for that; the link to my FF.net account is in my sig. Besides that, I also have Substitute Teacher, my Gakuen Alice/FMA crossover, and I'm trying to stick some Royai into it.

On a more random note: I'm currently obsessing over Gun X Sword, if anyone wants to talk to me about it, the anime thread is now open. XD (Random thread pimpage, yes) I may write some fics about it too. I'm four episodes away from the ending, same with Blood+. I've been getting into a lot of seinen anime lately, I know.

And I miss you guys so much! happy.gif

Desu ne?
@Liz Whoa, that's a cool tattoo. ^^

Other than that humm.. I haven't drawn anything Royai related lately (school + comic + those damned mmorpgs that you play and then suddenly the day is gone - especially when you have a younger sister who also plays them and then goes "noo please stay on a little longer" when you say you go off to draw).

Oh and someone brought up Royai dreams. The closest I've gotten to that is a dream where Roy and Riza sat in a carriage and for some reason had an umbrella with them and I thought something with marriage.. but marriages and umbrellas don't belong together. xp I still remember me scolding myself mentally after thinking that because those two aren't related (umbrellas and marriage). Then the carriage where Roy and Riza sat drove on some country roads and Roy used something to make potatoes fly out of the ground and to the carriage so her sort of.. harvested them? Either way it was very odd. And those potatoes were definitely not his. =/

Anne- Nice. I was just watching Gakuen Alice this morning and they have a Snow White episode that has the same sort of cross-dressed... well, I can't say mayhem, because the picture has no mayhem, but it was cool.

Desu ne? It's like a weird mix of Royai and Cinderella with some sci-fi and/or fantasy thrown in! Interesting... My dream, for the record, had them trapped in a collasping building. VERY tragically romantic. Let's just say things ended well between them, but not happily at all. I was happy when I woke up right before it really would've ended unhappily.

Amethyst Sunset- You're back! And you like Gakuen Alice, too? (Well, if you write about it, I would assume you like it, anyway...) I'll have to check out your fanfiction!

Liz- I would scold you, but 1) I'm younger than you, so it's not my place, 2) I wouldn't do it, but that's just my opinion and not yours, and 3) it seems that it turned out well, so I really can't complain. However, for now, my ink will come strictly from the computer... or those cheap, temporary tattoos that you can get from magazines. wink.gif

This is all sorts of wrong, and it made me LOL.

And I still haven't planned out how the 'burning' part is going to take place... XD
But I'm pretty accident prone. I'm sure it will take care of itself.

@Anne That picture was great!

@Desu ne? I've never actually had dreams with the actually characters in them, but with themes from various manga/anime. Any time I write fanfiction before I go to sleep I have the strangest dreams.

sharpshooter_Riza Chapter 75 was awesome, maybe our favorite characters will show up in the next chapter.

School+Work=free time being very scarce. I need to work on my fanfiction.
CodenameElizabeth
HAY GUYZ!

I just got /cgl/'ed! LOL.

(A bunch of my friends informed me of this and I had to lurk over to the squalid depths of 4chan to check it out for myself.)
Amethyst Sunset
Desu ne - Dreams don't always make sense. wink.gif But who really cares? And you know, those elements you find in dreams can become inspiration for some really good fanfics.

Anne - That picture is wrong on so many levels, and yet I still crack up every time I see it.

Yes, I want his hat. Someday I will steal it. Or maybe just make one for cosplay and entertainment (a.k.a. randomness) purposes.

JS - I do. ^^; I'm a bit sad that GA doesn't get much attention; though the story is pretty simple, it's cute on so many levels; I couldn't resist making a crossover!

Liz - Good luck! happy.gif Unfortunately I am very squeamish when it comes to tattoos. Though I'd sure like to get my ears pierced - a second pair of holes would do. XDDDDDD

That's one awesome pose.

Causmicfire - I agree that chapter 75 was good, though without any appearances from Roy and Riza. I'm hoping (and this is very possible0 that they reappear in the next chapter, and with more moments together. wink.gif

Same here; haven't written much fanfiction in ages. XD
Amethyst Sunset
Paca - Hi! *waves* Good luck with your exams...and I love the pictures, as always!

I'm a bit clueless too as to what's going on so far; I haven't been here in a while too. XD I blame college.

And so my post will have more meaning...

You've Got a Long Way to Go - chapter 9

Finally, an update. happy.gif *dances* Hope you guys like it. And Anne, thanks so much for the review!

@Amethyst Sunset - OMG, you're back!! I was beginning to worry about you!! Nice to see you back!! biggrin.gif And, nice update!!

@Desu ne? - I don't think I ever had any Royai dream. Yours sounds strange but kinda nice. ^^

@Anne Packrat - LOL on that pic!! Roy's expression is soo funny!! XDD

@*secret* - Glad you are alive and kicking!! ^^

Tombow- Though this has nothing to do with Royai, I just thought I'd point out that Colleen Clinkenbeard is also Rose in the dub.

*Sigh*... Still working on editing the oneshot. School and work are really catching up with me, though. Tonight's the only night of the week where I can really relax because I have no homework. That's all going to change tomorrow, though. Oh joy.
Causmicfire
Wow, I could get to LA in like 20 minutes, if the traffic isn't bad. I should go.
jacksparrow589
Causmicfire- Lucky you! I just get the theater downtown playing it!

I FINISHED IT! I DID! AND I POSTED IT!

Who Knew

I'm so proud of myself! For finishing it, I mean. As to it actually beign decent, well, I leave that up to you guys to decide.

Once again, Roy is only talked about in this one, but I leave no doubt that there's a relationship there. It's Havoc and Riza doing the talking. Between series and movie. Yeah. That's about it. Please read!

Can't go to an FMA movie screening 2morrow even tho I'm off of work, because the closest one in 2hrs from me, and I have an appointment w/ my trainer at the gym in the middle of the day tomorrow... (Yeah, I gained back all of the weight I lost last year, but dropped about 10lb in the past week and a half via insane dieting measures--- aka "no solid food...". Hope to be down 15lb by my photoshoot next weekend. I caved tonight and had a half a dozen chicken wings!! Gawd, We cosplayers go thru a LOT of insane dieting practices for photo-ops...)

Paca, that Alice picture made me lol, because I was actually planning to make an Alice costume for Halloween this year! XD
Tombow
@JS - Yes, thanks for that info!! ^^
And, you did it! It's very nice!! I like it!! happy.gif

@Causmicfire - If you attend the LA one, please let us know how it went!! ^^

@Liz - Yeah, I'm like you... only if it were Friday I could go, but I got other stuff and I can't attend the FMA movie showing. But, glad FMA is getting the attention. ^^
BTW, good luck with your dieting!! That's some extreme measure, but hope you will get the beautiful results!! happy.gif

So, in case some might be living nearby those places... rest of info on VA appearances at the showing of FMA movies in the U.S... (From Asu-san's post on "Anime bento" event news thread.)

I just found out I can't go to the L.A. showing, because the only time I can get into the dentist is today at 5:30, they have to take out the fragments of a wisdom tooth they missed. I won't be able to make it on time, since it takes me further from L.A. than I am. I think I can still make to the one closer to my house. ((My dentist was telling me the jaw pain I had was psychological, looks like she was wrong))

@Liz Wow, that is some extreme dieting. I'm just getting back to solid food after having the flu for the past week.

@@JS I'll get to your story today after school. I hope to be posting two or three things myself.

*secret* I'm glad to hear from you.

@Tombow Thanks for all the info about the movie!

Hey! How's everyone doing? I hope you all haven't forgotten me.. =p

I went to Manifest last weekend. It's one of the biggest anime convention in Melbourne, Australia, and it's held in Melbourne University (right opposite my apartment). I did a cosplay, but not a character from FMA. I have always wanted to go as Riza, but I don't think I will look good in blonde wig. Plus, the design of the militart costume confuses me to no end.

Here's a photo of a Riza Hawkeye cosplayer I saw there. My friend told me that there was another person who went as her and had done a better job. I think I saw her, but didn't get a chance to take her picture DD: Moshiwake arimasen! I'm soooooooo sssoooooooooooorrrrrrrrryyyyyy~ ><


This is something off-topic, but don't you guys find them cute?
