New manga chapter should be out soon, yes?

Ooh, so tempted to do a Roy post-Riza-death scene, but I can't, so I'll have to put it on my much-much-later to-do list. If I do any writing, it's going to be for my huge-a** fic that I'm still working on. After several months of plotting, figuring out timelines and re-watching the series I'm finally ready to start writing it (working out the details for AU fics are a pain).

Christmas fics also sound like fun, though.
Damn it.
FMAobsessed
Hello everyone, this is my first time posting here. But let me assure you all that I am a huge Roy and Riza fan.
Does anyone know when the new chapter will be coming out? I have finals coming up and thinking about the upcoming chapter has distracted me from studying lol. Well a lot of things can distract me from studying.

BTW what is an AU fanfic?

FailToImpress
^An AU fic means it is set in an Alternate Universe. smile.gif
RoyxRizaFan
Welcome, FMAobsessed!!!!

I will force myself to find time to write that fan fic. I have a million other FFs I'm meant to be writing but HELL they can wait for RoyAi.
jacksparrow589
I now have two Royai Chirstmas fic ideas. Looks like I'll be sharing twice the usual joy this holiday season!

Welcome, FMAobsessed! I, too am distracted from my schoolwork because of the new chapter, but we just have winter break soon, not finals. You're in good company here.

Anyway, isn't the new chapter supposed to be out by this weekend? I recall something about the Dec. 12 issue of Shonen GanGan and stuff about the new FMA anime! FMA is usually released around the second week of the month, too, so it'll be soon in any case.
FMAobsessed
The 12th, that is soon. I have a philosophy final on that day. I will probably fail it because I don't understand the subject. But a new chapter will cheer me up afterwards so YAY! I hope that there will be more Roy and Riza interaction.

Quick question. I don't know if this has been asked but when did everyone start to become fans of Roy and Riza?

For me it was in the second volume of the manga where Scar comes in and first fights Ed, Al and the military. It was raining and Mustang is about to use his flame alchemy, but Hawkeye knocks him down and calls him useless on rainy days. IDK why I fell in love with them at that scene but I did.

Any ideas about how/why he dies?
RoyxRizaFan
FMAobsessed: I don't know if I answered this before, but it's a funny story.

It was anime boston 07 and there was an AMAZING AMV to the song "Far Away" and I was on about volume 3 of FMA at the time. Roy and Riza were in the AMV (it was a various couples one) and the manga hadn't revealed much of their relationship, so I was like, "WHAT? THEM?" and my friend was like, "Yeah, they're cute" I couldn't believe it. I was like, "But she's so cool and he's so stupid." I was so shocked that they were a pairing that I began paying close attention to the way they acted around each other, trying to see if it WAS really cannon. Then...I fell in love with them! LOL Weird story, I know, but it's true...

I know what I'm doing for my fan fiction! Now all I need it time to do it XD Easier said than done...but I will do my best!
FMAobsessed
That is a good story RoyxRizafan. I too have been to anime boston. I am going for 2009 are you?
RoyxRizaFan
I am and I cannot WAIT! Last year I went as Riza but this year I'm going as Lavi from D. Gray Man (complete with my friends as Allen and Kanda). What are you going as??

Not particularly. I was thinking originally that it would be a cliche "line of duty" type of thing, but then I figured it might be more interesting if the death were to be a 'freak accident'... something unexpected. Kind of a "Dammit, it wasn't supposed to end this way." situation. (Car accident, illness, other kind of freak-of-nature type situation. Could be particlarly ironic if it involved fire in some way...)



Ha ha. Anime Boston... yeah. O.o

If it weren't for Anime Boston, I MIGHT actualy have a LIFE. huh.gif <--- Exec. Staff and veteran Slave-To-The-Con since 2004...

(A few of us staff are considering an Avatar group this year... we'll see...)
FMAobsessed
@RoyxRizafan I am going to anime boston with my college's anime club. I will probably be going as some school girl from Clannad. But I have never made a cosplay so I have no idea how it will turn out. I saw a Riza cosplay last year it could have been you.

It looks like there is no Roy and Riza in this month's chapter and that makes me sad. But the chapters are always good so it is ok. I just really want something to happen btwn them.

Also here is an FMA AMV, since I am new to this site I don't really know where to post it. I didn't make it. My friend showed it to me on youtube. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gughv8r1U50

@RoyxRizaFan: I totally know which vid you are talking about. I have it on my faves on YouTube. I absolutely loved it as well. I really like watching the caught-on-camera versions because hearing fangirl squees at the RoyxRiza is hilarious and endearing at the same time.

On the topic of Anime Boston, I only wish I could actually go to any kind of con, but I am super broke, not to mention the 'rents probably wouldn't let me go anyways.

Raws of the new chapter came out. It was great and amazing and creepy, but I was still a little sad to not see what was happening with Roy and the gang. Not saying that I dont love Ed or Ling or RanFan, but just seeing Roy, Riza, Havoc, and the others kick butt together makes me smile.

I like the freak accident suggestion. Well, I'll be brainstorming.

Watching FMA repeats on cartoon network with my aunt. I got tired of having to see the episodes out of order and searched for it online, and then found the manga. I liked their dynamics from the start, and started reading fanfiction, which lead to writing it.

Yep. I know what you mean. Seeing mustang's little gang together make me happy...in a wierd way.
RoyxRizaFan
@ FMAObsessed: Well, if that Riza didn't have a wig on and was walking around with a crazy pink haired lady, it was me LOL

@ crazyanimefan: LOL I remember a skit last year about Riza and Roy and the second the announcer said their names, everyone started screaming their LUNGS OUT and she had to stop announcing until we all calmed down...

Good times.

Well, I've read the summary but not the translation *is waiting for onemanga chapter* AHH! I need my RoyAi! It's been ages since they've exchanged more than two sentences *cries*
crazyanimefan
Alas, we only get monthly doses of FMA, and even fewer Royai moments. *sigh*

Anyways, I'm really looking forward to FMA season 2. I didnt see season 1 (I'm more of a manga person, and most of the people I asked said the manga was better anyways), but I cant wait for Riza and Roy's past together to be animated. That would be amazing!
FMAobsessed
@RoyxRizafan sorry I don't remember if I saw you or not. I saw so many people and it was a while ago. I do remember going to the Pillows concert. Did you go? It was awesome.

@crazyanimefan I think everyone is looking forward to FMA season 2. My brother told me about it during the summer and I didn't believe him at first. But he ended up to be right and now I am very happy. The Roy and Riza past scenes during the Isbalan (sp?) war would be amazing.
RoyxRizaFan
It's all good. I totally didn't expect you to remember LOL I didn't go to the concert, but I heard it was amazing!

I remember glomping every Roy in the halls while I was Riza...UGH...I need to get out of Anime Boston mode...I'm getting all reminiscant...

Yeah, we haven't had RoyAi since like July last year. *sobs*
crazyanimefan
Lol, last I had some RoyAi was...two months ago? That was when I sat at my computer reading all the chapters on OneManga until I caught up to the current ones. Still, there's always fanfic and doujinshi to keep me happy.
CodenameElizabeth
I became a fan of the pairing because I found their relationship to be a very deep, mature, and "adult" relationship. When you get to be an old fart like me, you get sick of seeing all of the teenage romance in anime and manga (now, I LOVE Ed/Winry to death, but that relationship is written WELL even though the two are teens. I don't hate on EVERY teenage romance.)

With the characters of Roy and Riza, they are both two mature adults in their late 20's - early 30's who have been through a lot together. The two definitely "love" each other in my opinion, but theirs is not the stereotypical "hearts and flowers" kind of love. They are both serious and duty-driven individuals, and know how to keep a relationship "on the down low" in a way teenagers often do not.

I am not a romantic. Therefore I can appreciate a relationship like this. It just seems very real and believable to me. And Arakawa writes it well.



(And FWIW, I am ALWAYS in "Anime Boston Mode." I kid you not. Con never seems to end for me, OR the rest of the Execs/senior staffers! There is always another year to plan!)
FailToImpress
Loving the new manga chapter - well, what I can gather from pictures and summaries - and it's awesome but... not quite as awesome as the last one. cool.gif I may change my mind after reading it through properly, though.

Small question, does anyone have a rough idea of when the new anime series will hit America or Europe? (Europe moreso, because that's where I am). I'm just curious. happy.gif Not sure why I'm asking because no doubt 'll be able to see it online sometime... Gah, I hate waiting, so impatient!
FMAobsessed
I too am in anime boston mode. I really need to start saving money for it.
@FailtoImpress, sorry I only know that the FMA series 2 premieres in April of 2009. I don't know about the United States or Europe.
RoyxRizaFan
I'm assuming some curious people will sub it online. I'm not sure, though...

I'm always in Anime Boston mode, too, but I try my best not to show it *and FAIL*. I was just telling a friend who's going for their first time about it a second ago, too LOL

@ CodenameElizabeth - I love the way you described them. That's why I like them, too. They're not stereotypical.

And I have a Olivia siggy now LMAO She kicked [All hail lord Xenu] in this chapter...as usual...but STILL!

Missed Roy and Riza, though...*cries* Poor Denny has no idea what he's talking about...

EDIT: no matter how many times I see the censor [All hail lord Xenu], it amuses me to death...
FailToImpress
^Yeah, I kinda thought that it would be subbed and put online... I can be patient.
I suppose, none of us were really expecting a new series so I shouldn't complain about having to wait.

god, I should get back on topic. mellow.gif

I like the RoyxRiza pairing for the reasons already suggested, in that it's not a stereotypical, teen thing. It seems much deeper than that.

And yeah, poor Denny. He's so adorable. I really want to see the moment when he finds out Maria is still alive.
CodenameElizabeth
D'awwwwww, Denny and Maria... MY OTHER OTP (besides Ed/Winry and Roy/Riza.)

RoyxRizafan's sig is Epic Win too... Olivia is my fav. manga character.

^ Thanks XDDD Olivia was amazing in this chappie...

I have finished my RoyAi XMas fan fic! Oneshot...

crazyanimefan
^Nice fic. I love the "Roy Boy" part. It really made me giggle. biggrin.gif

Now I feel inspired to write a FMAxHP crossover with lots of Royai and EdWin. It probably will never be shown on the internet, but I can still do it for fun.
jacksparrow589
^Yeah... I haven't posted about half of what I've written because it's horrible. Like, I wrote it a few years ago, before I'd fully grasped non-crackfic characterization. Not saying that yours will be the same way, of course, but I've got some pretty bad stuff.

Well, I'm trying to figure out when to post my two (yep, TWO!) Royai Chirstmas oneshots. As a warning, both of them are fluffy, one more than the other. I haven't written much lately, so it sort of defaulted back to that. And I really didn't want to write angst at Christmas.
Causmicfire
I'm working on a few Christmas fics(Olivier pov with a hint of RoyAi, then a RoyAi piece or two), but as the day itself draws nearer, I'll be working anywhere from 8-12 hours up until Christmas day, and I'm crossing my fingers that I get them done in time.

Costco Bakery = 24-hour production around the holidays, although the time passes quickly because it's so busy, and the overtime money is sweet.

Great fic, RoyxRizafan, and I'll be waiting to read yours J.S.!

Both are a bit fluffy, but the second one is definitely more fluffy. I haven't written in a while, so they might be sub-standard.

I liked the first one best, but the second one made me happy because Pride and Prejudice (not the newest one) is my favorite movie EVER. They were both very cute, though!

I wonder if countries would surrender to that army or what LMAO

^Thank you! I actually have never seen the movie, but I had to read the book for a project.

Wait... the first one and the P&P one are the same! I'm slightly confused, but whatever. I'm not exactly awake right now. Winter break has started early! (i.e. They already cancelled school for tomorrow.)

crazyanimefan
I keep finding new Royai fanfics to read to keep my inner fangirl occupied while we wait a few more weeks for a new chapter. I need to feed my Royai hunger. I went to the bookstore yesterday and plopped myself down with FMA volumes 9-11 (which is where Al, Roy, Riza, and Jean chase after Barry.) I was trying not to cry in public, but just rereading the part where Riza is all emotional... *sob* It was so touching.

And I have devoted myself to try and make a Royai AMV or MMV with Windows Movie Maker. >< Ack.
Blysse
Okay, stupid question here. Why is it Royai? Where'd the 'ai' come from?

Feel free to flame me and call me an idiot. I'm just not that educated in the Roy/Riza universe.
Hey
Hawkeye's katakana name is 'HOOKUAI', and there's where the 'ai' comes from. Plus, 'ai' also means love in Japanese.
I'm not being a busybody, am I?

But DAYAMN. What an AWFUL outfit! Actually, both Riza and Winry have hideous clothes in that pic. Very out of character IMO.

I don`t think they`re so bad fashion wise, they just need a little tweaking.
First of all, for Riza, get rid of the choker. I don`t think chokers have been acceptable since the 90`s, haha. However,she could replace the choker with a tastful necklace. Also, take out the strange little neck tie and bow and just make the dress a strapless. Since the bottom half of the picture is, well, not there, i can`t really tell how the dress ends. I`m gonna give her credit and call it as a drop waist lol. Now purple was a big color for fall, but by now it`s feeling a little old...but that can slide lol. Also, no arm warmers, kthx.

As for Winry, I think the dress design is almost great, just not the color. Voluminous, layered ruffles are a big thing for `09 (like this dress from Fetherston`s Spring `09 collection). However, the ruffles on Winry`s dress are a little flat and a bit too long. Also her headband is cute, but too gaudy for a Christmas party.

As for matching them character wise, I definately agree with you on Riza wearing a LBD or something similarly classy and simple. And I think Winry wouldn`t be that opposed to a pink dress, as long as it wasn`t that color pink.
