Amethyst! You're aliiiive! *tackles* So, this is what I get to look forward to when I pack up and go to college in a year, eh? Lack of time to write facfic, lack of time to read new stuff... Well, at least it makes it seem cooler when you do get around to it, right? And you really are an awesome writer. Just stay in the element you're comfortable with, even if it means not writing for mature audiences. I'll still read your stuff! (Geez, I make it sound like you've given up. Rest assured that was NOT my intention.)
RoyxRizaFan4ever
Yes, the lack of Royai was disappointing this chapter, but at least we saw Grumman and some EdWin scenes. smile.gif
Causmicfire
Amethyst - Don't say that...I have so much trouble writing something that surpasses one or two chapters...especially if I have to plan it out. DX My continuations are nearly always done on a whim. Good luck with your classes! Not writing for mature audiences is completely awesome, a relationship isn't just about that, which is what bugs me about so many movies now a days.

Tombow - Thanks!

So, went out and bought a C.D. (for one song that I liked from a movie...I tend to do this often, which gives me a pretty diverse collection), and while I putting it on my computer, found a song on it that is perfect for RoyAi. Though my feminists side feels betrayed for my love of this song

A.N.G.E.L. by Natasha Bedingfield.

Just like a shadow
I'll be beside you
I'll be your comfort
And let it guide you home
I will provide you a place of shelter
I want a be your zone
Tell me what to do
Tell me what you wanted me to do
I'll make you great to be a man
With a woman who can stand
Who will never promise to leave her man
Making vows to please her man

If I could be your angel
Your angel, Your angel
Protect you from the pain
I'll keep you safe from danger
You'll never hurt again
I'll be your a.n.g.e.l
I'm gona be your a.n.g.e.l
I'll be your angel

Just like the moon
I'll step beside
And let your sun shine
While I follow behind
Cause baby what ya got
It is with all the props
With everything I'm not
Tell me what to do
Tell me what you wanted me to do
I'll make you great to be a man
With a woman who can stand
Who will never promise to leave her man
Making vows to please her man

There's more to the lyrics, but it gets pretty repetitive right about here.

jacksparrow589
Nice song, Causmicfire! Repetitiveness can't be helped, I suppose. Natasha Bedingfield isn't my favorite singer, but if the slipper, er, song fits... It does in this case, and I'll leave it at that.

I listen to a lot of music by Within Temptation, so I hear a lot of sort of... "love torn apart" is the best description for the songs, I suppose. "Angels" is a pretty obvious choice, and the subject of many an amv, including a REALLY good Royai one. Lesser known, but there just the same are "Forgiven" and "Somewhere". "Our Solemn Hour" isn't exactly a love song, but more of an Ishbal song.

Hey, anyone remember Schubes's "Ocean Avenue" video? Yellowcard has some other songs that fit the Royai theme, too. (At least, in my opinion.) The two I remember off hand are "Only One" (Right up there with Within Temptation's "Forgiven" and "Somewhere" in terms of theme.) and "Light Up the Sky". While "Light Up the Sky" doesn't fit very much lyrics-wise, the words make me think of Royai every time I listen.

And then there's a lot of the songs I use as inspiration for my fics. I'm a very music-oriented person. If I hear a song on the radio and I think, "ROYAI!" I will write it down at some point.

Oh, and I'm not putting all the lyrics on here 'cause that'd be one BIG post. If you guys want them, they're pretty easily accessible, like most lyrics.
RoyxRizaFan
Funny you should mention Within Temptation here because they're by far my favorite band. I agree with the songs you listed, but also "Hand of Sorrow" for the Ishbalan war. That's what I thought of immediately when I heard it.

The child without a name grew up to be the hand
To watch you, to shield you or kill on demand
The choice he´d made he could not comprehend
His blood a grim secret they had to command

He´s torn between his honor and the true love of his life
He prayed for both but was denied

So many dreams were broken and so much was sacrificed
Was it worth the ones we loved and had to leave behind?
So many years have past, who are the noble and the wise?
Will all our sins be justified?

The curse of his powers tormented his life
Obeying the crown was a sinister price
His soul was tortured by love and by pain
He surely would flee but the oath made him stay

He´s torn between his honor and the true love of his life
He prayed for both but was denied

So many dreams were broken and so much was sacrificed
Was it worth the ones we loved and had to leave behind?
So many years have past, who are the noble and the wise?
Will all our sins be justified?

Please forgive me for the sorrow, for leaving you in fear
For the dreams we had to silence, that´s all they´ll ever be
Still I´ll be the hand that serves you
Though you´ll not see that it is me

So many dreams were broken and so much was sacrificed
Was it worth the ones we loved and had to leave behind?
So many years have past, who are the noble and the wise?
Will all our sins be justified?
jacksparrow589
(Re: "Hand of Sorrow") Wow! Can't believe I forgot that one! And here I wrote a fic to that one, too!
Imagining_Dark_Roses
Hullo people! I sowwy i was gone. I was being lazy. New chappie.... EdWin made me squeal. RoyAi (or lack of) made me cry.
I really have nothing to say, just popped in to say hullo. Oh! Wait! I do have something to say! look at the figurine i ordered off Amazon!!
http://www.amazon.com/Full-Metal-Alchemist...0981&sr=8-1
i havent the slightest clue how big it is of even WHAT it is, but i saw and went "ROYAI" and that was that. I haven't the slightest idea what Riza is floating on. A purple cloud? Wind? Smoke? A lily? I guess I'll find out soon enough.
song lyrics linking time?
Eric's Song by Vienna Teng
strange how you know inside me
I measure the time and I stand amazed
strange how I know inside you
my hand is outstretched toward the damp of the haze

and of course I forgive
I've seen how you live
like a phoenix you rise from the ashes
you pick up the pieces
and the ghosts in the attic
they never quite leave
and of course I forgive
you've seen how I live
I've got darkness and fears to appease
my voices and analogies
ambitions like ribbons
worn bright on my sleeve

strange how we know each other

strange how I fit into you
there's a distance erased with the greatest of ease
strange how you fit into me
a gentle warmth filling the deepest of needs

and with each passing day
the stories we say
draw us tighter into our addiction
confirm our convictions
that some kind of miracle
passed on our heads
and how I am sure
like never before
of my reasons for defying reason
embracing the seasons
we dance through the colors
both followed and led

strange how we fit each other

strange how certain the journey
time unfolds the petals for our eyes to see
strange how this journey's hurting
in ways we accept as part of fate's decree

so we just hold on fast
acknowledge the past
as lessons exquisitely crafted
painstakingly drafted
to carve us as instruments
that play the music of life
for we don't realize
our faith in the prize
unless it's been somehow elusive
how swiftly we choose it
the sacred simplicity
of you at my side

Tombow
Oh, songs that reminds Royai!!
I like those!! Thanks for posting lyrics, everyone!!

@JS - Funny you mention... Schubes's birthday was the other day, and I was thinking of Schubes's that Ocean Aenue Royai video the other day!!
I miss watching Schubes's Royai videos!!

@Imagining_Dark_Roses - Welcome back!!
That is a nice set of Roy and Riza figurines!!! Nice find!! I wanna one. biggrin.gif
jacksparrow589
Tombow- That was kinda what got me started on Schubes's stuff. Ironically enough, that song (Ocean Avenue) is pretty much the story of the last couple days for me. You know, someone special leaving and not wanting to say good bye... *sighs* 3000 miles....

Imagining_Dark_Roses- It looks like smoke, I think. I mean, it makes sense, but could be anything else you mentioned. I'm with ya on the ?-factor. It's kinda brightening up my day, though, so I won't complain too much.
Imagining_Dark_Roses
ok, yeah, tomorrow i'm going to camp for a month, so i obvously won't be on. just popped by to link a nasty (as in ugly, it is perfectly G-rated) picture i drew. I'm no artist, but i wanted to draw this.

Will take a look at the MMV's when I get home from work.
(And yes, I do remember "Ocean Avenue". Made me really like the song.)


EDIT: Seriously, Amazon.com.
WHAT ARE YOU TRYING TO DO TO MY CREDIT CARD? Seriously!
Damn You Amazon!!

EDIT:

So I'm editing this so that I can image-dump. I just went off on a complete tangent over in the EdWin thread about how, although there is little evidence of any 'pairing' in the anime, in a lot of the official anime art it is QUITE evident as to which characters get paired up. A lot of the posters I found on my Amazon-run yesterday show Ed and Winry along with Roy and Riza in very 'couple-like' pairing. So, while the manga provides more evidence that the pairings are 'canon', the promotional anime-style art hints at it more than you think! wink.gif

And now, image-dump.
The first are both Edwin and Roiai, or group-shots:

Click to view attachment <-- primarily EdWin, but Roy and Riza are in the background.

Click to view attachment <-- AWWW.

Click to view attachment <-- MY OTP's. (Al needs a Meichan in this poster. LOL.)

Click to view attachment <-- Formal officers. Breda makes me LOL HARD here.

And the RoiAi specific stuff I found:

Click to view attachment <-- really want this poster. Too bad I have nowhere to put it.

Click to view attachment <-- obviosuly from the movie (in which Hawkeye has like, three lines...) but it this isn't a pairing-poster, I dunno WHAT is.

Click to view attachment <-- Also from the movie art (LOL_EYEPATCH!ROY)
Tombow
@Imagining_Dark_Roses - I like your drawing and MMV!!
Drawing look like Roy and Riza, and MMV is very powerful!! Nice jobs!! ^^

@Liz - Ohhhh... Love those!!
Yes, I wanna that poster, too!!
RoyxRizaFan
Imagining_Dark_Roses I loved both of your pieces!

CodenameElizabeth thanks for the pictures - I've noticed this too, before, and have wondered about it because there often doesn't seem to be romantic themes in the anime...
jacksparrow589
CodenameElizabeth- Sooo there with you on the art! That's practically all I think of when I see those! I love the last one- I first saw it in Beckett Anime magazine, which they don't seem to print anymore... I still love it, though!

YES. The last one was definitely featured in a Beckett guide article called "Actions Speak Louder than Words" about 2 years ago. I think I may have posted this before, but here you go again. Because I can. LOL.

(FWIW, This is anime based, and was released just after the Japanese release of the infamous chapter 58-59 of the manga.)

@Liz Amazon is always trying to eat up money on my credit card...especially with my fondess of books. Thanks for posting those pics, and the little article! I think that was actually released just before I got started on FMA.

I definitely think they're are hinting at something with character placement .

@Imagining Dark Roses - Great MMV, and wonderful song to go with it!

I never would've seen it, though, if you hadn't reposted the repost (I'm still kind of new here) so thanks a million! I had no idea there was an article like that about them...I liked how it referred not only to the anime, but also to the manga...
natsu-hime
yo, minna-san! long time no see. just wanna tell ya that i didn't make it to year 12 because of some suspiciously LOW grades (here in my country a kid got low grades because the teacher hates the kid is common. oh, and bribery to teachers is okay too)

LOLZ SOPHIE I GOT THAT LITTLE ROIAI FIGURINE! it's small and i don't know i have to compare the size with what (umm...a logitech webcam maybe?) but it's really a good display for any desktops.

so yeah...am gonna roam around teh net again to look for some roiai...yeaaaahhh!
jacksparrow589
natsu-hime- WHAT? Teachers lowering grades because they don't like the kid and therefore think their responses are crap... not that far-fetched. Bribery would be only a little less believable, sadly. But If that happened here and was found out (or even suspected), there'd be a lawsuit! (Then again, in the U.S., you can make just about anyting into a lawsuit. It's pretty stupid.) Crap. I'm going to go off on that one if I dwell on that any longer.

Other than that, I don't have much to say, though.

But so I'm not COMPLETELY OT on this post: I'd forgotten that article was titled "Actions Speak Louder Than Words". Oh-so-very true in that relationship. Not that words shouldn't be used, but sometimes, actions help/hurt far more than any words ever could.

w00T! My friend is coming in a couple hours, and we're going to watch FMA!
Tombow
@natsu-hime - Whaaaat? That's not fair!! (I think...)
Amyway, missed you!! Yes, go soak yourself in more Royai!! biggrin.gif

@Liz - Aww... somehow, seeing those makes me rather nostalgic!! XD
Thanks for reposting those!! I totally enjoyed seeing these again!! ^^
riza'slittlesister
GASP! The prodigal has returned at last! I've missed you guys. My computer died (no joke) in FEBRUARY. I only just got a temporary replacement yesterday. T.T So I got to read a lot of manga all at once. Yeeep, so much has happened in the last five chapters!

80. Envy = tiny critter in jar. I'm nervous about the fact that Mei's bringing him back... 0.0 Falman-y general and the alchemic army!!!!
81.whoa...
82.*blink*
83.Yeep.
84. Al!! However, I don't think he'll actually die yet.

Meh. I didn't miss much good Royai, huh? I guess we're still being tortured.


Funny coincidence(?): Oh my word, Ed is acting just like Roy here!

It's so nice to "see" you all again.

I'm really glad to be able to look at some of this again. I even have Adobe Photoshop on this computer, so I'm going to work on a new signature and avatar!

Hey guys,

I was just skimming through the forums and I found your post! Thanks for putting those magazine scans up! I was just thinking the other day, was there any REAL evidence of Royai in the anime? I couldn't remember anything (except the jealousy over the nurse) because it's nearly been a year since I last watched the anime and I was slowly beginning to lose faith in the Royai-ness of everything. I then gave myself a mini heart-attack by thinking, "well jeez, maybe they're just friends and nothing’s going to happen between them in the manga...”

AHHHH! ohmy.gif

Thankfully, you guys have put the Royai faith back into me, haha. You’re officially my heroes.

jacksparrow589
Saving Grace- That's what we're here for! This thread exists pretty much solely for Royai... and any other curious topics that happen to come up. But mostly Royai. Anyway, I, too was disappointed at the lack of Royai in the anime. There really isn't that much that's terribly memorable until the very end. The movie didn't help very much, either. (Don't deny it-- I know you're all thinking it! wink.gif ) I think we've pretty much just stuck to the manga since then. There seems to be more evidence there, anyway. I'd like to think so, at least.

I think the manga is evident, but not too much. It's simply perfect. Like Roy and Riza never said they love each other (well, at least not in front of us), but they give signs to each other.
What really moves my fantasies are the fact Riza "taught" Roy with that huge tattoo on her back... she had to show it somehow to him~ *gets shoot*
sharpshooter_riza_hawkeye
Kay this is going to sound really retarded, but it keeps popping up and I can't remember reading it anywhere, so maybe you guys can help.

Where in the manga did Riza predict Roy would be arrested (some say killed) for his deeds in Ishbal? I really, quite honestly don't remember that anywhere. And it scares me that it may come true because people keep writing fics about it, and I read this one fic where they both got arrested. Upon asking the author why in the hell Roy was Fuhrer and ordering himself and the others to be arrested, I got the answer of " It's based off of Riza's prediction in the manga that they'd all be either arrested or killed."

Helps pwease?

SRH- I think it's when she's telling Ed about Ishbal and how, since Roy wants to make ammends for it, he'd most likely wind up being tried and convicted for war crimes, as would she and anyone else from Ishbal. *Looks it up* Yep! Chapter 62, starting on about page... 3-ish. More like 4, but still...

Ah, I posted this and saw that RoyxRizaFan did the same thing. With links, no less! This makes my post rather useless, but I'll live.

After hearing about that, Ed doesn't want them to die when everything is over, so he refuses to pay Mustang back, by saying he'll just keep borrowing money, and promising to return it until Roy has fulfilled his end of the bargain, such as becoming Fuhrer, making the country a democracy...

So, then Mustang realizes he'll have to live a long life to get his money back.

Thank you guys so much for your help, I really appreciate it. Now I remember reading it. I guess at the time all of what was said between Riza and Edward didn't register in my head, lol. Now everything is more clear, lol.

Thank god Edward cares about Riza and Roy. I know I would just be completely heartbroken if they were all tried and executed for Ishbal. I mean, I understand the reasoning and everything, but still, there has to be another way.

Thanks once again guys, my memory was recovered and I stopped thinking crazy death scenes, lol. Love you all!

Here's a scene from a story I am currently reading, it's really good. I can't remember the name right now, but next time I post I'll give a link to it. It's a really good story!

“No way in hell. I’m good with the orange.” Al grimaced, effectively blocking his brother’s way into the room he’d been given. “Was the decorator drunk?”

“I was assured this is the height of fashion,” Roy replied with a fake lofty air that slipped into dismay as he waved his hand at Edward’s room. “I fear that it may be true.”

“I can’t sleep in here. The flowers will eat me,” Ed grumbled, not venturing further into the room.

Winry rolled her eyes. “The flowers will not eat you, Ed. Other people have slept in this room and gone on to live perfectly normal lives.”

“Really? How do you know the flowers didn't eat and replace them?" Ed narrowed his eyes back at Winry.

That sounds like a funny fanfic. You'll have to let us know when you remember the name. I can just imagine Ed being afraid the flowers would come alive and eat him. They're in league with milk in the Order of Inanimate Objects Against Edward Elric, you know. wink.gif

It's nice to see you're still here, srh! And I'm glad you got the pages you were looking for in the manga, that scene's so scary, but really good too. It makes me really nervous... Meep. If something goes wrong, I am definitely going to have to write a fanfic to correct it.

I've seen a lot of Riza cosplay at AX, but haven't been able to take a picture since I've been working when I see them DX.

I hope to see some Roys and Rizas at the masquerade tonight, but I'll only have crappy cell phone pictures, but I do have an amazing seat XD

I'm sad that Travis didn't make it to the panel, but he'll be at the signing today.

CodenameElizabeth
Oh hey! So you were at AX!
I'd love to go to that con one of these days. *THIS* Riza cosplayer has yet to see the West Coast... although she HAS now been as far south as Tampa, FL and as far north as Portland, Maine. (I was at PortCon this past weekend. Working.)

EAST SIIIIIDE represent! XD
Causmicfire
I didn't see any Roy and Riza cosplayers together DX, people at the FMA gathering wanted RoyEd DX, but I did get the Roys and Lust to pose together...cell phone pictures to come soon! I'll probaly post them in the cosplay section though.

Talked to Travis Willingham for a bit, couldn't get a straight answer out of him about RoyAi, but he did say afew things about women in miniskirts.

Met an Ed cosplayer with awesome automail.

No FMA skits at masquerade ...

I did meet plenty of RoyAi fans at the FMA panel.

It would be awesome to see you at AX next year, Liz.
Tombow
^ I love that 520-cenz promise part of FMA story.
These part... thst's what makes FMA such an awesome manga!! ^^


Just dropping by quickly to tell you...

Roy, and Riza (though separately) will be in chapter 85!!!

Chapter 85 Preview Summary!!

Looks like it's going to be another exciting chapter!!!
sharpshooter_riza_hawkeye
Ooooooo, chapter 85=SCORE! That's all I have to say, everything is so exciting!

I have two authors and their stories to recommend to you guys. They're both very good authors, and write very exciting stories, and our younger RoyAI fans can most likely read them safely as well.

This is the link to "The Mission" the sequel to silver-sniper-of-the-night's "The Inspection. " which should be read first. You can get to everything by just clicking the link below.

http://www.fanfiction.net/s/4311679/1/The_Mission

And this is a D.M. Evans Story. Very good and very lengthy chapters. Some of it is a bit confusing, but you can get past that after maybe the third chapter. This story is also a Sequel, but the author has posted that reading the prequel is NOT necessary to understand the story line. This is also the story I referred to in an earlier post when I posted a bit of dialog from it. Well I remembered!

OH GAWD. Just PLEASE don't let her have another outfit... because we all know I'll need to add it to my cosplay list. O.o
I still need to get her chapter 38 (black 'special ops' outfit) one of these days...

(And she has a freakin' "cosplay wardrobe" already-- including a coat, pajamas, the grey suit from Tobenai Tenshi and the ever-evolving dress uniform- of which I still need some REAL pics.)

THIS IS WHY I CANT HAVE NICE THINGS!!!! XD

Also... having some fun with this necropost:
http://www.fullmetal-alchemist.com/forums/...mp;#entry633367
(Roy, Riza, and babies. HOW IT WOULD GO DOWN, DARNIT.) /thread. XD



AND... some fun stories from PortConMaine this past weekend (actually, LAST WEEK. Damn, how time flies...)
So I wore Riza on Friday... just so that the Security staff could drool while I played with their airsoft handguns... and some guy comes up to me while I was working and comments on the costume saying how much he likes the costume, the character and FMA in general... especially the manga. AND THEN he literally asks me "HEY! You look so much like Riza, do you have a BIG TATTOO on your back with a scar on it?" And I LOLd a little, and told him that YES, I actually DO have a smaller version of THE TATTOO on my back, but I COULDNT SHOW IT TO HIM while wearing the costume since my undershirt is actually a bodysuit, and the tattoo is on the small of my back. F**$%ing SUCKED!!!!! He totally would have gotten the reference!!! EPIC FAIL!!! sad.gif

Hey...

Anybody remember the Royai Twilight fanfic contest from last year? I actually started writing on that one again! I completely dropped the story I started and never posted any of it because I was too busy and too uninspired. Now that it's summer again (and a whole year later in general), I can think and write much better. I might even put it up! Maybe...

RoyxRizaFan
Don't get me wrong, I LOVED chapter 85, but am I the only one bothered by all the Roy/Olivia talk that's been going around? Ever since Roy talked about how much he wanted to meet her in chapter 68 or something, I've been kind of bugged by the possibility of their reltationship, and now I was really freaked out. it doesn't help that lots of people i know are ditching their RoyAi fan-ism to ship Roy/Olivia...I was wondering if anyone else had any thoughts on this...
riza'slittlesister
Chapter 85 WAS great. I thoroughly enjoyed it, but the Roy/Olivier is a little disconcerting. I don't think it's anything to worry about though, not really. It seems just like the other "dates". He just needs a reason to talk to her so they can plan. It's not as though Roy never offered Hawkeye flowers too, right? wink.gif

I'm reading The Mission too. It's good! I'm also working on my next fanfiction, I lost the first few chapters when my last computer died.
jacksparrow589
My two bits on Roy/Olivier: I honestly don't see what the big deal is. Roy seems to get on Olivier's nerves WAY too much for something like a serious, fully committed romantic relationship to build. Also, not that I dislike her, but Olivier does seem to like having a lot of control. I really just don't think her personality meshes with Roy's enough in general for anything romantic to start. They're on the same side. They're going to do what it takes to win. Like riza'slittlesister mentioned, their interactions so far have mostly consisted of "Let's take down Bradley!" with a general smattering of comic relief. Neither have shown nearly the depth of the emotional bonds that Riza and Roy share and show around each other constantly. And Roy and Riza meeting would hardly be... inconspicuous, I guess. It would immediately be seen as a way to plot treason. Roy says it, himself in 84: It's safer for them not to be seen together. That doesn't mean that they don't want it, though. Roy/Olivier romance? I just don't see it.

But that's just me. Moving right along...

I finished a new Royai oneshot last night! A movie one. With Emo!Roy. So emo, in fact, that I actually had Havoc pull something of a Maes from the flashbacks in Episode 25. (As if Roy didn't have enough physical and emotional injuries to deal with...)

The story: Comatose

The summary I put up: Spoilers for and set during early CoS. Havoc is awakened by Roy's dreams. Roy, unfortunately, is not so lucky, and is unable to escape his most recent demons: the ones he thought he had left behind when he left Central. Implied Royai. Angst/Romance

Now, off to babysit. For the SECOND time today. *dies* (At least it'll be easy... This kid NEVER causes me trouble!)
Causmicfire
I'm going with J.S. here. I highly doubt there is anything between Olivier and Roy, the animosity is far too strong. They're both out to get the same thing, and if that means cooperating they will, and Roy has to keep up his "womanizing" reputation more than ever no. Not to mention, if she did like Roy, I think it would be a little problematic with her current situation. Also, she only trusts him a bit more than she does her brother...by a hair, lol, it isn't hard to have more hair than Alex.

...personally, I think Buccaneer is better for her XD

Seriously, the whole scene after he got out of the tunnel with the other men <3

Sorry for spreading my Oliveer musings in the RoyAi thread, the topic just lead to it.

I think we even saw a hint of RoyAi in this chapter with her comment about their responsibility to Roy, using the word "our" is much more possessive than I ever thought I'd hear(read, whathaveyou) from her. I thought she'd just say the Colonel.

I'm working on a fic manga!verse, set during and after the battle with Gluttony, I think chapters 50-52 ish.

Hopefully I'll be able to finish it by sometime next week, life has just been very hectic with staffing AX and then helping with preparations for my best friend's wedding...she ties the knot on Saturday.

It's more on the angsty side to go with everything that happens in that time span, and I've got another one-shot going off the prompt coat that I'm working on, which also deals with the manga arc around the same time.

Saving_Grace
^Oooh, weddings are always fun.

I love the Roy/Olivia interaction, I always get a chuckle out of it, but there's definitely nothing romantic there. Lately (slightly off topic) I've noticed that people have been pairing Olivia with Havoc a lot lately, which seems kind of curious to me. They don't seem like two people that would click...

You know, I have this horrible, secret fear that Royai's not gonna happen in the manga, like Arakawa's going to leave us hanging or kill someone off...

Anyhoo. I have a Riza question. I've been trying to find out how old Riza is for some fic stuff, and I was wondering if you guys have any ideas?
RoyxRizaFan
Thanks for the reasurrance everyone! Ill just try to ignore the Olivia/Roy shippers.

I'm pretty sure I read somewhere the Riza's 25, but I could be wrong.
jacksparrow589
Saving Grace- I'm pretty sure she's around her mid-twenties just based on how far back they say Ishbal is (I think about ten years) and her appearence when Roy was her father's apprentice (mid- or late teens). I wouldn't go older than 30 or younger than about 25. I'm pretty nonspecific about that, myself.

THIS.
Definitely mid-to-late twenties.

(Which makes me go YAY. I'M ACTUALLY COSPLAYING A CHARACTER THAT IS AGE-APPROPRIATE FOR ME!) LOL. I'm an old fart. It's hard to find good characters to cosplay once you get older.


Re: Roy/Olivia shenannigans. Yeah. There is some sort of animosity there. Nothing romantic. (Although it could make some great angry-sex crack fic.) Remember the florist back in chapter, hmmm, 65ish with the "Armstrong curl?" Yeah. Thats probably where the flowers came from. A nice little device of passing on the message!

I'd also like to see why exactly the anomisity between Armstrong and Mustang exists in the frist place. I'm thinking it's more of the "He's an arrogant kid who rose thru the ranks too quickly!" crap that seems to yank everyones piss chain about him. I mean, Olivia has to be in her early to mid-40's and Roy's in his early 30's.
