Wow, nearly 1000 pages, now, huh guys? But I guess with the lack of Royai in...a very long time, nothing new to post, I suppose.

Anybody else been up to anything you'd like to share?

Well i suppose with an intro. like that i feel compelled to surface again (been a while since i've seen this thread, i go on and off nowadays)
(and yea RoyxRizaFan4ever i think we all understand that the thread has slowed in recent months/yr - with lacks here and there and the US releases slow (anyone remember the TV show? - they should have done it like Bleach, create a new story line and go back to the original when they can)
but every now and then there's stuff to say, there's no other explaining the grandiose size of this thread in comparison to others)

hope everyone's work and yr's goin well tho, such is life

QUOTE(RoyxRizaFan @ Feb 11 2008, 05:28 PM) *
Six months since Roy...my new sig is staying until he returns. I love Ed, but he's only been gone half as long as Roy, so people really are complaining too much...

But then again, Ed's the main character and Roy's just...well, Roy...so I'm probably not judging it correctly...whatever.

It was nice to see Riza, though I would have prefferred to have seen how Roy's been reacting to his news about Selim. Bradley was originally human, so i guess he still has some human in him, and he lives with humans so their example runs off on him even if he doesn't show it.
QUOTE(jacksparrow589 @ Feb 12 2008, 10:48 PM) *
As much as I, too, miss "badass" Riza, it's not like she can do anything to Bradley. Although, since he's kind of shown her his more "human" side... I dunno where that speculation is going, actually. I've been pretty scatterbrained.

I think she'll break out her guns when the time is right, though. I mean, there are (presumably) some real-as-can-be humans that'll go with Bradley when it comes to the ultimate showdown, so she'll be useful there, and she can at least stall homunculi, since healing, though quick, takes time. I just wanna see some Royai love! Is that too much to ask? We get AlxMei, we get EdxWin, we even get BradleyxBradley's Wife! BUT NO ROYAI! ARG!


Ah yes, the time when we get to look behind the lines... allow me to explain what i mean -

After finding out that Selim is the leading homunculus, it's clear that his relationship with his "father" Bradley and the actual "father" is going to be a big part of the story
For example, notice how when Bradley shares his thoughts with Selim, Selim says he won't relay some of them to Father, seemingly out of respect
For Bradley, just as with Ling, is the only human-homunculus combination, and thus doesn't share the same thoughts and feelings (necessarily) as the other homunculi

So when he said to Hawkeye that HE made the choice, it's likely that he's explaining that he, the human he, has some control in the situation
This is major for the storyline, b/c if Bradley has a change of heart (as he's expressed occasionally in his doubts with Selim) then maybe his reasons for having Hawkeye nearby have interior motives - y else would he hint this piece of info to her?

-- Now this is all my speculation, i could be entirely wrong, but it is a thought to ponder
(heck, a side point, what if in scattering Roy's men, he enabled them to recruit more followers around the country?)

as for the lack of Roy, well, from the storyline we've seen, it looks like his thoughts are irrelevant right now, and we'll see them later; rather to see the development at central.. such is life

OT: AndroidLust nice picture, what is it exactly, a mix of Riza and Winry?

jacksparrow589
Elemental/Alchemist- Wow... You've got some awesome theories behind that one, not to mention a bit of proof to back them up. But somehow, as much as the human and homunculi inside might battle, I don't think he'd split up Roy's troops to get them to recruit. It's been fortunate that Briggs is mostly helping thus far, but I think it's probably just coincidence.

Just watch me be totally wrong. I'll laugh. I'll be pretty weirded out, too. Bradley helping them? O_O (Not impossible, I'll admit, but pretty improbable.)

Thanks... I tend to be a more in-depth thinker, analyzing as much as possible (anyone who remembers my posting days a year ago knows as much happy.gif )

and yea, i don't really think my "helping" idea is correct, but i threw it out there to explain how large a picture Ms. Arakawa has drawn with Bradley and the situation
Tombow
@Elemental/Alchemist - Nice to see you!! ^^
It's an interesting theory!! Bradley is certainly an interesting character, and I wouldn't be surprised if Arakawa-sensei has more stuff waiting for him. This chapter's Bradley & Riza's interaction was unexpected, but good. ^^
And, about the thread slowing down... I had been pretty overwhelmed with the school stuff and couldn't take time to post also. Sorry!! ^^

@AndroidLust - I remember seeing that pic... It' was on Young-GanGan.
If I can remember where I'd seen it, I will post the link. ^^

@JS- Yay for more Royai fics!! Please post the link when you are ready!! ^^
RoyxRizaFan
Well, I have my BostonAnime costume. I'm going as *DUH-DUH-DUUUH!!!!* Riza! No surprise, right? Any excuse to glomp tons of Roy cosplayers...LOL. Last year I made my costume, but i bought it this year, and it looks amazing. When i tried it on, i didn't want to take it off!

As for Bradley...Hmm...a change of heart seems unlikely, but anything is possible in FMA!

Hola! I haven't posted on this board for what seems like an eons, and I just wanted to stop by and say "Hello." A lot of the threads that I used to visit have passed into the "great blue yonder", but I know that the Royai thread shall never die down.I hope that everyone is doing well, and I hope to be around here a little bit more.

RoyXRiza Fan:
Yeah, another AnimeBostoner! I am actually attending with a bunch of friends from my University. It will be my first time going to this convention, but I have heard good things about it. You will have you show us photographs of your Riza cosplay outfit. (Heh heh, my friends talked me into cosplaying Ed from the end of the series. *cough cough*. It should be hilarious to see how it turns out...)
paca
Hi~~~!!!
A few days ago this thread was in the 5th page lol


Nothing new to share ..... but I'll see if I can bring some pics happy.gif

I found this omake in the gallery of this page Roy omake, have you seen it?


See you~~
Tombow
@RoyxRizaFan - You're going to Anime Sozton as Riza?? Sounds fun!!!! ^^
Please take a lots of pics!!

@Edamame - You are going as Ed?!! I got to see this!!! ^^

@Paca - Oh yes, that one is one of my all time fav Roy Omake!!! biggrin.gif
I think that one was the Grand Prize winning entry for GanGan mag's FMA fan Omake contest. (Tho, I can't remember if that was just Omake idea contributed by the fan, or the drawing also.)

Here is the Omake posted by Paca above, but I added quick (& lousy) scanlation. XD
Click to view attachment
Roy's expression on the 3rd panel is priceless!! XDD

And, of course that Omake is based on "The Little Match Girl," and if don't know the story you miss half of the fun on that Omake, so...
Here is the Plot synopsis of "The Little Match Girl"... (I'm being lazy, so I copied from Wiki. tongue.gif)

It was night on New Year’s Eve, and a poor, little match girl was out on the streets selling matches. Although she was cold and hungry, with neither hat nor shoes, she was afraid to go home as her father would surely beat her when he found out she did not sell any matches that day.

In a nook between two buildings, she wanted to warm herself by lighting matches. In the light of the first match she saw a hot iron stove, but the fire was soon blown out by the howling wind. She lit a second match and saw a fully laden dinner table with delicious foods and a roasted goose that came slowly toward her. It too disappeared as the match went out. By the light of the third match she saw a beautiful Christmas tree lit with a million candles. The candle lights went higher and higher until they became stars. One became a shooting star and she remembered her late grandmother telling her that a shooting star means a person has passed away and gone to Heaven.

Upon lighting the fourth match she saw her smiling grandmother, the only person who ever loved her. This filled her with so much joy she quickly lit the next match and the next so that her grandmother would never fade. Finally, the grandmother took the happy girl in her arms and they flew higher and higher to a place where there's no cold, no hunger, no fear.

The next morning, the little girl was found dead in the snow with a smile upon her lips. “She wanted to warm herself!” people exclaimed as they noticed the burned out matches littered around her body. However, no one knew what beauty she had seen or with what glory she had gone with her grandmother into a joyous new year.
jacksparrow589
Tombow- Heh. Nice. Thanks for posting that omake! (Thanks to paca for pointing it out!) It made me laugh.

Still working on Royai fics (I've written about 7.5 of the 11 I have ideas for. Still working on getting more ideas, too. I don't know how long this one's gonna go.), but school is pretty demanding right now, so if I don't post them for a month (or three... heh heh... *shifty eyes*), I have a valid reason.
natsu-hime
yay for the omake! that's one of the funniest FMA omake i've ever read biggrin.gif

btw, today (28 february) is ookawa toru's 48th birthday!
happy birthday to roy mustang LOL (desperate because arakawa did not make birthdays for her characters)
Causmicfire
@Paca Thanks for posting the omake!

@Tombow Thanks for translating!

@JS I'm looking forward to reading your fics when you're done!

@natsu-hime Yeah, sometimes when I'm writing fic I wish she would have given them birthdays.
Amethyst Sunset
Paca & Tombow - thanks for the omake, that really made my day. XDDDDDD I remember the story now.

Anyhow, hi everyone, I'm back (from the dead), with the twelfth chapter of my Royai story, You've Got a Long Way to Go. I told myself I wouldn't come back until I had something Royai to share with you guys. So yeah. XD I've been having a bit of trouble writing (at least, in terms of FMA and Royai) lately, so I was glad I managed to put out another chapter.

Thank you for reminding me - happy birthday, Toru Ohkawa! I agree; it would be so much easier of Arakawa gave her characters birthdays, though then again, it would be quite...restricting in a way.
jacksparrow589
Causmicfire- Nice icon! I'm kinda sick (and therefore out of it) at the moment, so it took me a second to get it, but I get it! I wouldn't want that as my "squishy", though! Still working on my fics, too- up to 9.75-ish written. I'll start putting them up probably sometime around spring break.

And, joining the rest of you (though it's already tomorrow in Japan), happy (belated) birthday to Toru Ookawa!
Causmicfire
J.S. I hope you're feeling better soon! Thanks.

@Amethyst My goodness, you're new sig XD Even my mom got a laugh out of it. I haven't written RoyAi since Valentine's Day, Olivier wont stop running rampant in my brain. She's demanding her fare share of fic, and making sure Roy is down for the count. I don't let her know I've got a few ideas on paper.
Amethyst Sunset
Causmicfire - I shall call him Squishy, and he shall be mine, and he shall be my Squishy. XDDDDDD I cracked up at that icon. And I cracked up when I screencapped this particular scene - I didn't know I'd end up using it as a sig. I thought of typing "Pick up on Aisle 1!" instead of "Excuse me, is this yours?" though.

Don't tell Olivier. I hope to write some Olivier-related fic too, but it's the reverse for me - Royai constantly nags me.

J.S. - Awesome, can't wait for more fics. =D Get well soon!

...*stares at college*

I blame you for not being able to write ficcage. XD

Anyhow, I want Royai in the next manga chapter. I NEED MY FIX. XD

i really wanted to go (ive never been to a convention before), but it`s on EASTER WEEKEND.
freakin` easter.

there`s no way i can escape my super catholic family`s easter plans. >.<
jacksparrow589
Hah! The Convention in my area was on Easter weekend last year (I think it's usually around that time, anyway. As I recall, it was last year...), but it's the weekend AFTER this year! I was so happy. My friend and I are planning to go all three days!

AndroidLust- If you can at all, you really should go to a convention. Sure, they might not be the most healthy thing for your pocketbook, but they're really awesome. I swung a deal with my parents about going. All my chores and homework done, and I'm with them all of Easter and the following week. Small price to pay, though, considering that the following week really wasn't that bad. However, I don't know your family situation, so I will refrain from further comment about that. Just, if you ever get the chance, seize it!
Amethyst Sunset
Elemental/Alchemist - My sig is from GUN×SWORD. Very interesting anime, to say the least; it has some themes similar to FMA, I'll tell you that.

Liz - Yes, quite a small world. If only I had a plane ticket and the entire week off, I'd so try to see you guys.

Tombow - Thank you! happy.gif Anyhow, methinks Mei stands a bigger chance of seeing Roy than Riza, but yes, I'd like it either way. I can't wait!

AndroidLust - I'm Catholic Christian, I've been doing those things for YEARS. Sorry about that; I know how it feels though. Why don't you go after everything's done? And, you don't have to spend anything if you don't want to...just go for the heck of it, to see the sights. I do that quite a bit...though I do end up buying the odd collectible here and there...

J.S. - I agree. Hmmm...I should check out the cons around where I live too. I've seen many FMA cosplayers, but they usually do the male characters. I've seen Pride!Ed (a friend of mine) and even Dante, heh. XD

Even if i could work out a deal, im not sure how i would get there. i can barely get to manhattan despite it being 20 minutes away. hows in God`s name would i find my way to boston? lol
i probably wouldnt buy any collectibles and whatnot but if there was anything related to japanese fashion (super lovers, hysteric glamour, ect) my purse would be empty XD. im an impulsive buyer so i would probably spend around $400, granted such items were for sale. and if anything wierd showed up, like a...cup ( tongue.gif ) with roy or riza on it, of course i would have to get it. biggrin.gif

which brings me too this question: do they sell thing that are related to japanese pop culture at cons? (besides the obvious anime related items of course)

AndroidLust, they sell just about everything that you could dream of at conventions. I have only been to Otakon and a few conventions in Europe, but I know for a fact that Otakon had an extensive amount of Japanese pop-culture related items as well as more traditional items. I don't know what AnimeBoston shall be like (I have a feeling that they will have a great deal of vendors given the diagram they posted on the con site), but Otakon had a huge amount of dealers ranging in everything from Gothic Lolita Clothing to limited addition anime cells. The only downside is that a lot of these vendors have a rather steep price for their items. I think they jack the prices up on purposes, because they know that people come with a hole burning in their pockets. I loved looking at all the latest street fashions that they sold at Otakon two years ago, but I would have been sleeping on the streets if I were to buy one.
jacksparrow589
Hmm... you can get really awesome bargains, though. They might not be exactly what you want, but if you HAVE to have it, you'll find some way to get what you want.

Not, of course, that I endorse blowing all your money and not being able to get what you need. I'm just saying, I found some pretty cool stuff for decent prices at the last con I went to.

That said, Edamame is correct: for the most part, stuff is expensive, and when you have factors like travel, lodging and food to add in, it can get pretty pricey. We're talking (at least, for me, since I don't have a "real job") several paychecks and other odd jobs for me if I were to travel out of state. The key is to plan in advance, and, if you don't make it once, don't get discouraged. I'm sure there'll be other opportunities in the future.

And, so I'm not completely off-topic: I WANT ROYAI IN THE NEXT CHAPTER!
Tombow

But, Ed is back, and also Winry and Rose get to talk about Ed. XDD
(Here is chapter 81 Preview Spoiler Summary)

no roy or riza?
aarrgghhhh. >.<
god, this is so painful.
i wish the chapters releases came in a quicker succession. = [

No offense to Arakawa, but she's really starting to piss me off with the lack of Roy. How many months has it been? We're starting our eighth (correct me if i'm wrong). I don't know if she's trying to drive us crazy or if she honestly doesn't want to write about him... cursing.gif

Hmm... you can get really awesome bargains, though. They might not be exactly what you want, but if you HAVE to have it, you'll find some way to get what you want.

Not, of course, that I endorse blowing all your money and not being able to get what you need. I'm just saying, I found some pretty cool stuff for decent prices at the last con I went to.

That said, Edamame is correct: for the most part, stuff is expensive, and when you have factors like travel, lodging and food to add in, it can get pretty pricey. We're talking (at least, for me, since I don't have a "real job") several paychecks and other odd jobs for me if I were to travel out of state. The key is to plan in advance, and, if you don't make it once, don't get discouraged. I'm sure there'll be other opportunities in the future.

thanks. i`ll keep all this in mind for the next con thats in the nearby area. happy.gif

@ RoyxRizaFan: i cant wait for your sig to not be right. : <

I finally wrote some RoyAi...okay, so it's not quite RoyAi, but it's got Riza thinking about Roy while she is at the Bradley mansion. It was inspired by Amethyst Sunset's You've Got a Long Way to Go.
The theme is song.

@ CausmicFire: great job, i really like it! i started reading it during one of my off periods and couldnt wait to get out of math class so i could finish it. XD i love the way you describe their past, it`s so sincere and touching. happy.gif

hello again fellow royai fans!
[i should stop randomly making reappearances...]

I'm thinking of starting up a doujinshi [but totally lack the writing skilz], and draw it along a fanfic or something like that. [Something along the lines reika2 did.] I'm looking for fanfiction that has good quality writing, I need your help! biggrin.gif

I think the only requirements are that it should be a one/two shot and keep it pg-13ish rated. I may make exceptions to like totally awesome fanfics, but even then it'll be vague. ;D I have a couple people/fics in mind, and I'll be contacting them soon. In the meantime give me some fanfiction recommendations that could go well with a doujinshi!

Thanks!
-Glam

Geez, I try to reply, and AddReply STILL doesn't work. Grrr.... my computer sucks at this.

Anyway... great job, Causmicfire! That piece is one of my favorites, and was my phone's ringtone before I killed it. And your oneshot is wonderful. A snapshot of the Bradley home from Riza's experience is something new to me. I think you did really well!
Amethyst Sunset
GASP. This thread needs to be revived! Wait...is thread transmutation taboo? XD Hahahaha. Anyhow, excuse my serious lack of Royai ficcage. I still have two more exams to go, and recently I've been writing more about xxxHOLiC and GUN×SWORD. Forgive me for lagging in my duties! *falls over*

RoyxRizaFan - I have to agree, I can't wait for your sig to be wrong. XD Concerning the latest chapter, it was nice that Ed came back and we caught a glimpse of other characters, but seriously, where IS the Royai lurve? WE. WANT. ROYAI. *chants*

Causmicfire - Once again, I am very honored, and I loved your little story. For biased reasons, it is now my favorite among the pieces in that series. XD Heh.

Glam - There are A LOT of great Royai one shots/two-chaptered stories out there. I really can't recommend just one or two. ^^; Good luck with your doujinshi, we'd love to see your work!
jacksparrow589
I need to bet back into writing fics, too! I'll probably start posting that Royai set that I've been meaning to post for a while in the coming week. I just have school the rest of this week, and then I get my week off!

And I agree with Amethyst- WHERE'S OUR ROYAI?
Elemental/Alchemist
ok i'm still gonna play the optimistic understanding part and say "she has something planned - she has to..."
b/c well, she must have something planned... right? huh.gif

well anyway, cest la vie
and jacksparrow589 enjoy ur break - and for all that applies - everyone enjoy spring break!

OT: for all my fellows of the Jewish heritage - HAPPY PURIM!!
eat, drink (a lot - yay for a holiday that calls for drinking to celebrate it happy.gif ) and be merry
peace
Tombow
@Causmicfire - That was nice!!

@Glam - Nice to see you!! We got many awesome Royai fic writers on this thread... Causmicfire, Amethyst Sunset, jacksparrow589... I bet they can help you with something, or if you dig through this thread, you may find some nice stuff. ^^

@Amethyst Sunset - Owww, I miss reading your Royai fics!

@RoyxRizaFan - Haha, yeah, I agree that we can use some Royai in the FMA chapter.
Seeing Ed in the latest chapter was nice. But I like to see Roy/Riza and the gang, too. ^^

@AndroidLust - Yeah, I was hoping to see some Roy scenes in the chapter 81, but no luck. Crossing fingers for the next chapter.

@JS - Yes, post it, post it, please!! ^^

@Elemental/Alchemist - Yeah, I hope Arakawa-sensei has something about Roy/Riza planned for us. XD BTW, Happy Purim!! Make a lots of happy noise!! ^^
jacksparrow589
Elemental/Alchemist- Yes, happy Purim! (I'm a rather non-practicing Catholic, but I know a few Jewish people, and I'm pretty open. I think learning about others is awesome! Oddly, I really don't want to go into psychology, though.) And I'll stick with you on hoping Arakawa has something planned. But, unless she decides to take a time-out from the impending action, I don't think we'll see them for a while yet. *bawls inconsolably at the thought*

Glam- as Tombow pointed out, I do write fanfic. A lot. But Causmicfire and Amethyst Sunset are more seasoned than I, and their stuff really rocks. I haven't seen Anne Packrat around here in a while, either, but she's got some awesome stuff, as well. Whatever you do, I hope your comic goes well! Let us know what happens!

Tombow- Break starts tomorrow, so that's probably when I'll start posting. Definitely by Sunday, though. I'm still editing. The first one is incredibly depressing (at least, for me- I started crying while writing it), but it's good that I get that out of my system every once and a while.
Amethyst Sunset
Elemental/Alchemist and Tombow - Yes, perhaps she just has something planned. Knowing Arakawa-sensei, I'm sure she's got a lot up her sleeve. Well, look at all the plot twists she's put out so far!

No spring where I live...but it's summer. XD Sorry folks, we've only got two seasons. And, Elemental/Alchemist, I approve of your avatar. happy.gif Spike is way awesome.

JS - I'm into Psychology myself. XDDDD It's fun to apply the stuff you learn from Psych101, especially when you try to make inferences about characters' personalities and actions. Talk about application. XD

And, for the record, I am not THAT seasoned. XD In fact, I'm trying to get back into the Royai fanfiction loop now that I've got some time to burn before my next exams and my summer classes. Don't worry, guys, I've already got some studying done!
jacksparrow589
Well, now that we're on fanfic and not seeming to get off, I posted the first one of Second Chances!

I'm still getting back into the swing of writing, but even if I get writer's block, I have, like, 9 more lined up, so I figure it's all good for a while.

EDIT: (Since nobody's posting...) Happy Easter to all who celebrate it! It's not Easter for me right now, but it will be in a few hours! (And I have yet to dye eggs... *sighs* So little time...)

i think u should take psychology, it's a good topic
though, psychology has little to do with bridging gaps between religions, that would be more philosophy
and i agree with u on learning about others' beliefs; religious, political or otherwise - it's annoying to encounter someone who blabs about something they never learned about

where do u live?
and plot twists of course - hopefully she won't make it an M. Night Shyamalan movie - too many twists to cope with

and thanks about the avatar, cowboy bebop is a fav. of mine (and the avatar is also ironic - notice the sign behind him vs. what he's doing)

OT: for those who celebrate, Happy Easter!
AndroidLust
its not even april yet. = [
and i need the new chapter like nowwww.
unless theres no roy/riza.
then i dont need it now.


on a complete tangent (well, maybe not. roys in it... i think?) lol whattttt?

jacksparrow589
AndroidLust- Right there with ya on the new chapter thing. Although I think I could handle it even if there's no Roy or Riza in it. That's really how badly I'd like something to distract me from school right now. (Not that I need it with midterms this week.)

As it is, though, I did get to go to SakuraCon, so that was pretty cool. Saw (and bought) my share of FMA (and other anime) stuff, and I almost got to meet Vic Mignogna, but I left early, so my brother said "hi" for me. It was pretty darn cool, although I'm kinda put out that I was left out of that, 'cause I've never met a big voice actor. Still have next year, though!

And, surprise-surprise, I'm keeping up with Second Chances! It's updated every weekend (if I can), so... if anyone wants to check it out... there's... y'know... Royai and... stuff... (I feel somewhat guilty for the shameless self-advertisement here, but it is Royai, so at least it's not OT!)
RoyxRizaFan
As for the next chapter : I doubt Roy will be in it. I'm guessing it'll be an Ed chapter since Ed and his bread are "fired up and ready to go", so I think Arakawa will postpone Roy's rise from the dead for another month or two *cries*. I just hope she doesn't go for a year without him...See how I've lost hope?

I have an AnimeBoston story to share. There was actually a Roy Riza skit in there, which was amazing since i was Riza Hawkeye. It began with the introduction to what it was about. "The next skit is about Roy Mustang, who will one day be Fuhrer, and hopefully make Riza Hawkeye his first lady-" I swear, the announcer had to stop half into what she was saying because everyone started screaming and cheering SO LOUD after she said that. it was amazing. The skit made no sense, though, because it was something like Riza going to the doctor and then the doctor called Roy on the phone so you couldn't hear what they were saying well because it was muffled, and at the end you could hear Riza killing Roy over the phone (I'm just relaying the story, folks, it wasn't a great skit), but the announcer clarified it by explaining that "when Mommy and Daddy love each other very much-" yeah, so i got the main idea. Kind of a weird skit, but I thought I'd share it anyway just because...

LOOOOOOOOONG POST! wink.gif

@ RoyxRizaFan: haha that skit sounds.... interesting. biggrin.gif any pictures from the con?

Yeah, It was probably one of the lamest skits at the con, but I felt the need to share it anyway. Actually, the worst skit was one where havoc actually proposed to Olivia, but I didn't see it, my friends told me about it. I'll post some pictures soon! There was a great Mei cosplay with an Envy Fetus and an Xiao Mei, and a great Olivia...

Oh, the Fullmetal skits this year at Anime Boston were deliciously cracktacular. Sheer curiosity got the best of me, and I stumbled into one of the "Mini-Skirt" army panels- giant mistake. I had the great pleasure of seeing the Havoc and Olivia sketch, and I think that my brain blew a fuse. Fullmetal Legal was pretty strange as well- the Roy Mustang versus Riza case on grounds of "sexual harrasment" was oddly amusing to say the least.

~The Mei cosplayer was incredible. I left a comment on one of her photos on Facebook. You had a very nice cosplay yourself. There really wasn't that many FMA cosplayers this year. (I felt a little out of place amongst all swarms of Kingdom Hearts, Naruto, and Bleach cosplayers.)
RoyxRizaFan
I loved your cosplay, too. it was cool that you went as movie Ed instead of dressing like everyone else who went as Ed.

There were millions of Lights and Ls from Death Note, too. OMG too many!

I didn't go to the miniskirt thing though some other Rizas who saw me afterwards told me i should. Just the sound of it "miniskirt panel" sounds kind of...well, you know what I mean.

As for Fullmetal Legal, I missed that. I can't even remember when that was. I must have been pissed off about the line if it was on Friday and was too tired to go...or was it Saturday? Either way, what was Riza's evidence??? LOL

hahaha, i wish i could see! and the sexual harassament one sounds as if it could be extremely funny, granted it`s well executed. happy.gif
