Can you imagine someone who ships that side unwittingly joining a RoyxRiza community?

Or it happening the other way around.

Oh, that would be somewhere between terrible and hilarious, depending on how it plays out. Like, if it's something like . . .

Hey guys! Looove this ship and look! I come bearing FANART! Click -here-.

And it's that same pic, or something similar. That would be bad (though, I'll admit, I will laugh *so* hard). But if it were just them joining and getting confused? Awkward turtle.

Haha, I feel now I'll have to specify which Hawkeye I ship with Roy . . .
Elemental/Alchemist
wow too much "innaprpriate" info.. haha....

@Desu ne? aright then it's all good

@WhiteLadyoftheRing - the pic's not showing, do an edit...

---OT---
@natsu-hime - so what country are u from?
Chanukah is pretty well known (of course Christmas is more well known - but still) and has actually become slightly more popular with shows like "The OC" having "Christmukah" episodes
u ever hear Adam Sandler's "Chanukah Song"? (funny song...)

i mean not to bash u in any way, but just wondering...

as per ur question
(again, OT -- for all who care or for those who also don't know...)
and thank u CodenameElizabeth for ur opening info:

Chanukah celebrates the re-dedication of the 2nd Temple in Jerusalem after the miraculous victory over the Greeks by the few Jewish rebels (Maccabim) in Israel at the time (around 175 B.C.E)
Antiochus IV had invaded Jerusalem, destroyed and murdered many and set about to Hellenize the Jewish people, setting decrees to deter Judaism (he didn't destroy the Temple, as Greeks had respect for physical beauty - alas this is a main aspect of Hellenism). But the Greeks did desecrate the temple, making impure the oils, sacrificing non-kosher animals, committing sins within, etc.
Now the Greek army at the time was vast (this is the empire that then fell to the romans), and the few Jews not Hellenized grouped together to fight and take back the city and Temple. Classic David v. Goliath, they won and came back to re-dedicate the temple, and light the Menorah (sacred candelabra lights) - but the only available pure oil could only last one day, while they prepared more...
Once again, miraculously, the oil lasted a full 8 days

So we celebrate the victory of few over many, and the miracle of the lights by lighting mini-menorahs (Chanukiahs) each day for 8 days (one on the 1st, 2 the 2nd etc.)
--------------------------------------
...phew, sorry for the OT, more info on wikipedia i guess, but w/e

P.S. Anyone know when the next chapter comes out..??
WhiteLadyoftheRing
Elemental/Alchemist - definitely not linking to that picture. I am not in the mood to get in trouble. wink.gif Hawkeye-Sensei/Roy = no want. ::shudders::
Elemental/Alchemist
WhiteLadyoftheRing - hahaha; ok now i'm confused, since when has hawkeye/roy been a bad thing, i believe royai is the name of the thread...
unless that's not wat u implied...
ahh forget it... huh.gif ....

^The thing is, by Hawkeye she didn't mean Riza she meant Riza's father.

Geez, if any of you want to see that badly just pm me. I have one of her other pictures that's actually work safe although it's just as disturbing (it involves shouta!Roy being "Waiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii, I'm cute and I has a books! O:" and Riza's father being all "*NOSEBLEED*" It's the only one I saved of the Riza's fatherxRoy stuff because DEAR LORD THAT LITTLE SHOUTA ROY IS THE CUTEST THING I'VE EVER SEEN. *adopts him*) That way it doesn't clutter the thread.

*sigh... yea, i was afraid of that...

and as to clutter, agreed
the thread (i think) should remain at least 90% royai, and anything off the side for enough pgs can be, well, off to the side
no one needs to repeat the fact that they're disturbed, nor need they be at all - i think we can all agree on that
natsu-hime
by the way guys, i already got a new phone again it's sony ericsson w200i and parents still don't know that the poor n73 is missing
last time i went to kinokuniya, i was strolling down the jap magazine site and HOLY CRAP I FOUND THE SHONEN GANGAN ISSUE WITH THE FLAME EMBLEM STRAP AGAIN! and so i buy it and now the flame array strap is clinging on my phone again YAYYYYYYYYYYYYY

btw, anybody have suggestion on how to clean the chibi-figure straps? my roy and riza on my psp is soo dirty... T_T

Elemental/Alchemist - indonesia. the majority of our religion is islam as you all know (including me but i am not religious) and i do heard of chanukah mentioned from some kinda movie or something but i don't know exactly what it's all about.
Tombow
@natsu-hime - You got the second FLAME EMBLEM STRAP?? You lucky girl!!
(I wanna Roy's Flame Emblem strap, too! Too bad I'm not in Indonesia! tongue.gif )
I'm glad you were able to replace the lost one! happy.gif

@WhiteLadyoftheRing - Welcome to the Royai thread! Nice to have you on our board! ^^

Yes, this thread is for Roy and Riza fans..and Roy fans, Riza fans and other FMA fans. And, I think it's fine that we also "ship" other FMA pairings, but.... I agree that if anyone would like to discuss about other possible FMA couplings and stuff like that, yeah, finding appropriate thread(s) and do that there and not cluttering this thread here is a good idea. biggrin.gif

Also, a reminder that this thread has had viewer/poster as young as 11 years old, and as such we try to keep the content of this thread fairly "tame." If any of you'd like to talk about more "mature" content please do so where it is out of reach of young viewers of this thread, like, by PM. Or, you can go to any of other "mature content" oriented sites and discuss those there, right? smile.gif


BTW, all these nice fanfics and fanart and pics that have been posted recently... I'll catch up with all these after the finals!! ^^


OT:
@Elemental/Alchemist - Happy Hanukkah! Wishing you a Hanukkah full of peace, happiness love and light! biggrin.gif

And, for the rest of us who are not lighting the candles..

FMA chapter 78 is just few days away!!
I'm guessing the spoiler preview for chapter 78 would show up either tomorrow, or by Monday.
I hope we will see some scenes in the Central, hopefully Roy or Riza in it. ^^
Desu ne?
We better get some Roy and Riza or else..

*sharpens butcher knife*

Sorries. >.< Been watching too much higurashi lately. If anyone really would kill someone over a manga, that would be sick..

Ah well. *crosses fingers for Roy and Riza to appear*

And happy chanukah/hanukka (not sure which is proper spelling) to everyone who celebrates~
CodenameElizabeth
WOW. You know this thread is dead when it's December 10th and no one has started organising a "RoiAi Holiday Celebration" yet...


huh.gif
Causmicfire
Does anyone want a RoiAi holiday celebration or new years celebration? I can try to organize if people are going to participate. I know people in school are busy with finals around this time, but we can start it after finals have ended.

Tombow
@Causmicfire - Yes, yes, please do organize Royai Winter Celebration!! ^^
I have been pretty bogged down this semester, but I will try to be more active after the finals. ^^

Okay, give me until the 13th, at the latest, and I'll have some posted for it.

Desu ne?
Oh, it's the eleventh.

I hope Roy or Riza will be in the new chapter (or something REALLY interesting happens).

I did so bad at my math test today, lol. UTTERLY AWFUL. Erm. In one week we'll get the results, most likely. Luckily my parent's won't get angry. But I will and that's even worse. >.<

Anyway, I'm off to watch some Higurashi no naku koro ni kai to calm down (paradoxal, I know - though there are some rather sweet scenes in it too).
Causmicfire
Chapter 10 of Back to Back, the ending of the guardian arc. Battlefield. Roy and Riza meet in Ishbal. Some dialog taken straight from manga chapter 59

@Desu ne? Sorry about your test. I'm not a fan of math tests.
Tombow
@Causmicfire - You are amazing!! ^^

@Desu ne? - Sorry to hear that you didn't do well with the math test.
Here is something to take your mind off... if you'd like to get spoiled, that is.. ^^

Wow, so much happening in this chapter!!
Hope we will have a quick scene of Roy in it!! ^^

Tombow
@Causmicfire - Oh! Nice program for this year's Royai Winter celebration!!!

This pic is also on the cover of this month's GanGan mag. It's one of the "karuta" playing card that you will get free if you buy Vol. 18 in Japan that's coming out on Dec. 22...
Anyway, I think it's Mustang trying to look distinguished by adding mustache. laugh.gif

Roy needs an "Armstrong Sparkle."
THEN he's look distinguished. XD

I vaguely remember a fan-omake where Roy tries to grow a mustache...
It went something like...


"Sir, What the HELL is that on your face?"

"It's my mustache, Lieutenant. Don't you think it makes me look manly and sophisticated?"

"It looks like you have mold growing on your upper lip, Sir."

There's the omake from volume four where he wants facial hair, because he doesn't think he's being taken seriously.

Poor Roy, having to be squashed by all those tall, muscular, facial-hair-growing men.

@Causmicfire - Tehehe, I remember that Omake!! laugh.gif
Thanks for posting the link!! After that Omake I remember we had lots of "Riza writing cat whiskers on Roy" fanarts!! XDD

as Tombow said, much of us are bogged down
hell i'm not even doing finals now, but abroad work is rough (barely get any time to read new chapters, need to wait to get it (those barnes and noble coupons r great, haha)

A site with a rather disturbing picture. Now, you've gone and made me think of it agian. Must go immerse myself in RoyxRiza fics and art.

I looke forward to seeing anything you contribute! Welcome to the forum!
WhiteLadyoftheRing
Yes! Many welcomes RoyxRizaFan!

And I'm definitely working on brainstorming for the challenge fic thingy. I'm excited.

Though distressed that this new chapter had no Roy or Riza. I was happy to see Fuery and such again, but I am having Havoc withdrawals, and major, major, major Roy and Riza withdrawals. Seriously, if they don't show up again next month, I may wind up on Arakawa's doorstep in tears or something. Major withdrawal, man.
Causmicfire
We shall go together, and maybe she'll got our message, if she understands English XP Otherwise, she'll just know it's about Roy and Riza. Can we cow-nap her?
WhiteLadyoftheRing
Heehee yes, we'll have to cow-nap her and demand some Royai. Give her a pencil and some paper and be like, "Royai. Now. Please." And the rabid Royai fangirls shall reign. smile.gif

Seriously, though, I was waiting and thinking, they *have* to show up in this chapter. It's been far too long. But nope. sad.gif Next chapter had better include some pretty blatant Royai hints.
Amethyst Sunset
Greetings, everyone! happy.gif Sorry about disappearing again...next week is my last week of classes, then I shall enjoy my Christmas break and Trigonometry homework...>_>

Anyhow, I have this...the 10th chapter of my ongoing Royai Story - You've Got a Long Way to Go. Man, I haven't updated in a while. To my readers, I am so sorry. sleep.gif

...and yes, I am crossing my fingers for a Royai scene in the manga. I think I've had them crossed for the past few months. XDDDDDD *falls over from Royai deficiency* Need...need...

...oh yeah, and to the new members, I'm Amethyst Sunset, or Amethyst, or A.S. Your call.
Desu ne?
Welcome to the thread, RoyxRizafan!

Yeah, it was a major downer to me too that there was no Roy or Riza this time either.. sure, a lot's happening but.. not even a glimpse. Maybe that may be an indication that the next chapter will focus more on them. Let's hope so.

[Though with how recent things are I'm more impatient about the Higurashi no naku koro ni kai episode 23 sub. I wish it was out alreadyyy. xD Can't wait to see what will happen.. <3]

Ah well.
*crosses fingers again*
If nothing happens, at least we'll have the winter celebration~
RoyxRizaFan
Thanks for all the welcoming!

I was really upset about the lack of Royai. All these months have been terrible, all the waiting. I'm so anxious to see what they do about the Pride thing...AHH! I need more Royai!

I'm with you on the going to Japan and demanding Royai plan. LOL
WhiteLadyoftheRing
I'm really hoping we'll see Riza again. In my opinion, Arakawa promoted Riza from minor-ish character to borderline main character (giving her the huge backstory with Roy, putting the secrets of flame alchemy on her back, AND the whole Pride thing). If anything she's given her a dual purpose as minor-ish character and huge plot device. So she sets up this intricate web with Riza near the center, and gears up for potential Royai angst, and then . . .

Nothing.

It's upsetting. Personally, I'm more worried about Roy and Riza than Ed right now. Just because Riza's further up on the expendability list than he is, even though I don't think she's going to *die* right now, not hearing from her or Roy in so long is downright unnerving.

And RoyxRizaFan, I love your sig. Pat Benatar = my hero

Welcome to this forum, and the thread, Ibormann.

Here's a story for the holidays. Mischief An AU holdiay fic. The team is part of a newspaper staff in the present day. Jean's on his break when he finds out Riza hates mistletoe, but why? Slight one-sided DennyxMaira, and one-sided MariaxJean.

Welcome to the thread, Ibormann~
Twilightz
Do you need a banner for the RoyAi Winter Wonderland '07 - festival? I could make one.
Amethyst Sunset
Welcome to the ever-growing Royai thread of awesomeness, lbormann! All in favor of over 1000 pages of Royai, say aye!

And, welcome back, Schubes!

I agree; while I like where the manga is going, I am a bit disappointed in the fact that just when Roy and Riza become the focal point, they suddenly disappear again. Still, perhaps that's understandable, with the many characters in FMA, along with so many more who have not appeared in ages.

That reminds me - I must get to work on a holiday-themed story as well. It might just be a chapter of my ongoing story, You've Got a...ah, what the heck, this is what I get for creating long titles. XD I'd also like to make a banner despite my non-existent MS Paint skills. XDDDDD
Causmicfire
We do have the banner contest opening on the 28th, but feel free to make one. I can rotate each banner with the times I re-announce the festival, which will probably 2 or 3 times since we've got just under two weeks before it starts.
Twilightz
@Causmicfire - Oh, okay... x) I'll wait for the contest.
RoyxRizaFan
I agree 1,000,000,000,000 % about how Riza has been made "borderline main" and then suddenly disappeared. When you honestly think about it, Riza's story is really more interesting than the other's right now...at least in my opinion. Building up all that (Riza finding Pride, being stalked, Roy's concern, telling Roy) and then all of a sudden having nothing is a huge let down. But what can i expect? There never have been too many chapters in a row with Royai (or either of the characters in them) in a row, and if there is, they disappear for like 8 months afterwards.
Overall, i just hope they hurry up and come back. I'm really anxious to see what Roy does with all this news and if Riza gets a chance to tell him even more...somehow...even though some people say that she shouldn't be telling him anything in the first place.
I'm sure you guys have heard this theory before, but in case you haven't, i think its possible that this whole stalking thing is part of Bradley (Sr)'s plan to get Roy to open the door. Bradely was the one who saw Roy and Riza during their biggest "moment" (chapter 39, i think it was) he was right outside the door watching, and he decided not to kill Roy, telling his father and brothers that Roy "has a soft heart and that's his greatest stregnth and greatest weakness" and that he thought he could open the door for them. Then he moves Riza to work under him and has his son stalking her. I'm thinking that this is all part of some big plan to get Roy to open the door, which is bad news for both of them...

thanks for the compliment, WhiteLadyoftheRing. Who doesn't love Pat Benatar (no one answer unless you have something positive to say-LOL)

WOW, long post.
Desu ne?
We just have to wait for Roy and Riza to appear again, I guess.. =/ I hate whenever something like that happens. Though I should be used to it. xDD Usually, minor characters tend to become my top favorites.

By the way, apparently Isaac Newton did a lot of research on alchemy. O.o I didn't know that before today. I chose to write about him for a school project, that's why I know now. xD

EEEK! I haven't been on in AGES! Well, so it seems, anyway. School has bogged me down incredibly, as has work and stress and having a life outside of all that. I haven't written fanfiction in a while, and I really want to for the Winter Wonderland!

I'd like to say hi to the new people here. I hang out here a lot... or used to. Junior year. It's getting to me. I'll probably be on more at least until the New Year, though. But for now, I still have a whole ton of school stuff to finish! I don't get out until Friday! WAAAAAH!

See you all later!

I'm sure we'll see a lot more of Riza when the time comes NOW!!! Please. Her predicament puts her in the middle of things. I wonder is she and Roy have decided on some way to confirm each others' identity since they know about Envy's ability, wait, do they? I need to go back and do some re-reading of the past 20ish chapters to refresh my mind.

@Desu ne? I never knew Newton was into Alchemy.

J.S. I hope you'll be able to finish everything you need to. I hope you'll be able to contribute to Winter Wonderland!
Elemental/Alchemist
missin on the newer chapters, can't get a hold of them where i'm at now, so takin ur words for it...
but i'll paraphrase myself from before:
that as for the "lack" of royai; admit that when Ms. Arakawa includes it she does so at key points in the story, well drafted and included at the right points in the plotline
(i really do wish she took part in the anime version sometimes; if they held off for a bit and didn't veer off the storyline, imagine what the show would be like...)
so expect it to be well done when it does happen in the chapters

@Causmicfire & Desu ne?
Isaac Newton lived during the Alchemic age, which is widely accepted as the pre-cursor to modern chemistry
Many of his optics, mathematics and physics work (know the apple and tree scenario - him) had riddled with it alchemic ideas, and many wondered what he would accomplish if he focused on it (though many of his writings may have been destroyed in a fire at his lab).
It should be noted that many "scientists" during his time dabbled in alchemy, and though they didn't succeed much in their endeavors, their research and other works formed the basis for the modern ideas of chemistry and physics

years later, with the development of stoichiometry, conservation of energy, and, yes, proper "equivalent exchange" of matter, Chemistry as we know it came to be, eliminating many occult ideas behind the Alchemic process and starting the age with the scientific method

(In fact, had Newton not relied on occult (yes alchemy is deemed an occult study) ideas of gravity it's said he wouldn't have developed it fully
note: here i had to look this up, apparently one is called "action at a distance")

And for some FMA fanservice:
He's been linked to possible research concerning the Philosophers stone as well, as have many other Alchemists/Scientists of the time

OT: Desu ne? hope ur project goes well
i simply enjoy the subject, yay physics/engineering happy.gif

I agree that the Royai is always very well-placed and works into the plot nicely, but I can't help being impatient for it at this point in time. Or maybe I'm just bothered by not knowing what either of them is really up to at all recently.

And I'd totally forgotten about Newton being into Alchemy. My IsaacNewton-fangirling faded to NicolaiTesla-fangirling some time ago, but I feel now I will be regressing back to good ol' Isaac. biggrin.gif

OT: Elemental/Alchemist, are you an engineering or physics major by any chance? Or planning to be? Cos I'm an Engineering Physics (BS)/Applied Physics (MS) major. smile.gif

Alchemy is also studied by Victor Frankenstein (from Mary Shelly's Frankenstein, actually the studying of it and natural sciences(chemisty) leads to his creating of the creature.

@TwilightzLove the icon!

Tombow
Oh, it's getting close to the our Royai Winter Festival!!
Thank you for the reminder and the announcement, Causmicfire!! ^^
(I fixed the double posts. ^^)

@Twilightz - Tehehe, love your avatar!

@RoyxRizaFan and bormann - Welcome to the Royai thread!! happy.gif
Yes, we are working on reaching 1000 page. biggrin.gif

@JS and Schubes - Nice to see you!!

@Amethyst Sunset- - Yap, I'm back (almost... I'm still in the finals period, but will be out soon.) ^^

@Desu ne? - Good luck with your project!

@Elemental/Alchemist - You missed my Hanukkah avatar I had, with you in mind.. XD

Yes, I want to see Riza now in the next chapter!! biggrin.gif
Also, we learned one fact from this chapter that Riza can get away from Pride if she goes out of Central City (and not in the area that's designated to be on the Transmutation Circle) .
It's good to know, knowing how she has been terrified of it.
