That fanart is hilarious Gimpyhair, thanks for posting it >D

I haven't gotten around to checking out all the fanarts, but I must say that DistantBlue's 2 four-panel strips just rocked my world.

Gimpyhair's comic rocked, too. It took me a second to get it, sleep-deprived teenager that I am, but it cracked me up.
Makika
Gimpyhair: haha, your comic was hilarious!

Gimpyhair's fanart! I can't stop laughing!

I guess Mustang prefered death than missing a chance to flirt with Riza.

Envy was like --- Both of you have just snatched away my chance to be the ultimate vilian.

I made one fanart too. (it's not cooomic, it's more romantic)

Just watch the 'colonel, you are useless in the rain' episode.

I could hear Mustang trying to snap his fingers with the sound 'pop'--- no flame.

Riza is so cool when she's using her firearms. She actually ran to Mustang and tripped him before she shot at Scar. laugh.gif

I wonder how many times she had saved Mustang in a close call.

I remember that fancomic from back in 'the day'
It is extremely well-drawn and the author has an excellent feel for story pacing and panel layout, but I just tend to not be not AU's. OR the idea of Riza barefoot and pregnant. I'm sorry, but Roy/Riza as parents just... seems OOC for me. I don't see them having the typical family life. That being said, I would still like to see it finished.

I have a theory that fans who gravitate towards the "RoiAi + Nuclear family" stereotype (and write fics/make fanarts etc. of it) are primarily American, since as an American myself, I have been raised with the whole "to be happy and normal, you must get married and have 2.5 children" mentality. It's just a theory. Not certain if that is the norm in other countries as well. Ideas?

@Liz - I think we see the idea of nuclear family being prevalent in other countries also, including Reika's home country, Spain where Catholic is the main religion.
And, it being one of the "tried and true" methods of raising a family, and probably one of the most commonly "approved" methods of raising a family in many countries in the world?? Hence, I can understand it has a strong appeal to many women in many countries where FMA is available. But, having said that, I think it also depends on the personality of the fanfic writer. If you remember Anna (still can't remember her correct id...sorry!!) she is married and I think with grown up children, yet she used to give us some really whacky Royai fanfics which I loved. tongue.gif

Those who had already seen "useless" moment...I'm jealous. I'm still waiting to watch episode 5. I watched it!!! Love it!!! I want to see that "useless
" scene in super slow motion, in HD!! tongue.gif

@Alzea - If Andie can post the scans of the pages I can take a look, and if the scans are clear and legible enough and if I have enough time I may be able to translate. smile.gif

Yeah! Where's our mushrooms?!! We don't get to see that very often on Mustang.

Then, about the 'pop' part, the sound is so cute!! Was there a pop too in the manga??

I prefer this useless moment than that in the first series. *thumbs up*

It is definately the royai-fans-must-watch episode. wink.gif
CodenameElizabeth
I had no idea where Reika was from, Tombow. Guess Catholicism will do that to a person as well (I am a "recovering Catholic" too.)

I think I may have misspoke. Of course, when it comes to familt, a nuclear family is he most desirable family. But I am puzzled at the fact that whole subject of "family"- with kids and all-- features into this particular 'ship so much. I just do not see Roy and Riza as the kind of characters who would raise a family.

Therefore the sheer number of fanfics/fanart that depict them as a nuclear family unit puzzle me a bit. I am thinking on the psychology behind it all, because it amuses me, and I think it is merely wish-fulfillment fantasy of the writer. Apparently a lot of RoiAi shippers have this desire to raise a family of their own.

Hmmm... fanfiction as a wish-fulfillment mechanism. I really should explore that avenue more deeply.
I actually had a friend who is a write ADMIT to me that a lot of her early fics were wish-fulfillment... OH LOL PSYCHOLOGY.



I'll watch ep 5 when the Funi sub comes out later in the week. I'm in no hurry.
Makika
Hahaha, yeah.. The pop turns a Classic now.
(but the mushrooms.. oh.. the mushrooms...)

other "royai sub-moment is in the Roy's militar headquarter's room (after the fight against Scar)
Ed start talk and everybody was paying attention in Ed and just Riza was looking for Roy *---*


crazyanimefan
Holy crap, this thread is almost at a thousand pages!

Firstly, new episode was really well done in my own opinion. They're getting better and better. Am I the only one who didnt really like the pop? I dunno, it kind of ruined the moment for me, especially with the dramatic music. I did like Riza's gunslinging.

@Liz: Yeah, I see where you're coming from. I'm pretty sure a couple of people, including you and I, had this discussion in this thread a long while ago. When I was a fresh FMA n00b, I loved to imagine the Royai nuclear family. Of course, now that I know the characters more, I do think that while I would love for them to have a family (yes, wish fulfillment and self insert, since I would love to have a family in the future XD), they're the kind of characters who would not settle down, especially with a military life and maybe future political life filled with danger. Also, Roy and Riza are both very stubborn, independent, and ambitious people. I'm sure they would make lovely parents, but it's just not likely. I do love the idea of them emotionally adopting Ed and Al, though.
FMAobsessed
Wow! We really are almost at 1000 pages. Come on we can do it.

I am behind on the new series. I think I will watch an episode now. I honestly cannot believe that it is almost the tenth. For me it is coming up pretty fast. Maybe because I have other things I need to do before then.

Because of the whole virus thing with the computer, I haven't seen episode 5, nor am I likely to for a while. Your guys' description of it amuses me, though. I can just see Roy trying to make the fire and not having it working.

On Roy and Riza having a family: It'd be nice, as long as Riza is not just a housewife, but in the world of FMA, I don't see it happening, as many of you have said. I'm okay with fanfics and fanarts of it, though. Anyway, Ed and Al are as close to having children as it gets. As long as they're around in the end, I'll be satisfied.

@JS - Ohhh... that's too bad... Maybe when HD screencaps come out we can post screencaps of the "useless" scene for you!! ^^

@Liz - Aha, I see what you mean!! biggrin.gif And, yes, many of these fics are quite possibly reflecting the desire of their own? ^^ I myself is not a fanfic writer (gahaha, I can already see how bad it would be if I write fanfics XDD) so I appreciate others' talents in writings, and as a reader I'm an omnivorous reader and enjoy reading Royai fics in all sort of situations, including Roy & Riza as a married unit, as long as it's well written. (that's what I really liked about Reika's doujin because it was very well written and well drawn.)
But, as a sci-fi fan, what I would love to read (if anyone would write it) is Roy and Riza in some nicely written sci-fi story. That would make me so happy!! laugh.gif


YAY!!! We really are going to hit 1,000 pages soon!!! biggrin.gif

Jeez, I haven't posted here in a while... -rubs head- You guys move waaaaaay too fast- still almost 1000 pages! Whoo!

Okay, in regards to the whole Royai Nuclear family thing, I pretty much agree with what crazyanimefma said. Roy and Riza have so much to do in their lifetime- and even if the whole "we're gonna win the promised day battle!" thing goes right for them and democracy wipes the floor clean of the corrupted military government (there's a term for this... and I don't remember what it's called.... I digress) and Roy and Riza somehow manage to have a lovey-dovey scene, I cannot see them raising a family. Like what Codename Elizabeth said, it seems out of character. Just my two cents. But still. I love the doujin and I hope it gets updated... Please... -insert desperate cheesy smile here- Oh, OT, I'm Catholic too! Yes, 2.5 children, lol. Oddly enough, including me, my parents has 3. happy.gif lol ran.dom.

Okay, on ep. 5 now!
I loved the pop! Best "pop" sound ever! It's better than the sound of popping popcorn. That's how epic that sound effect was. And Riza practically horizontally cartwheeled before kicking down Roy. That was absolutely amazing. And the look on Roy's face was priceless. WAAAAYYY better than anime1's "That's no way to get promoted Hawkeye!" (I'm going by the dub here) and the super angry face. Riza's dual-wielding was awesome too... and her shot with the rifle. God, Scar's super fast if he can avoid Hawkeye's shots, huh?

Yes, roughly a week till 95!!! The suspense is killing me!

YAY~! 4 more pages to go before this thread hits 1000~! We can so do this XD

I agree with what everyone said about the whole nuclear family thing...I just can't imagine Roy and Riza, after all they've been through, to be able to settle down and live out that fairy-tale happily-ever-after ending...it's just too...OOC (like other people have said). Not that I don't like the thought of little Royai babies (cue: awwwwww) but I think at the end of it all, both Roy and Riza probably won't even think about children, and will probably be content to simply live out the rest of their lives with each other.

And besides, with what Riza said - about them military soldiers being codemmed as criminals during times of war - I think that they'll probably live with the belief that they wouldn't want to raise their own children in the world where they, as parents, are believed to be 'murderers', even if it was for the sake of good (or something to that extent)

...did that make sense? I know sometimes when I'm trying to explain something, I tend to mix up and substitue what I really mean for something much...cheesier and lame sounding...happy.gif;;

@ everyone who said hi~: Thanks for welcome~! :3 Very few things make me cheerier than knowing there are other Royai-obssessed fans in the world...biggrin.gif

The sound is more like opening a wine bottle to me. Yeah! the way Riza uses her rifles and handguns is stunning!!

Ah!!! 95!!! 5 more days!!

Aw, cmon Amestris. The last time we got a chapter translated at onemanga was the eleventh. The raws allways came out on the 10th of the month.
Sometimes one day earlier. So, what's the problem, don't be too pessimistic, it's "only" six days now wink.gif

Definitely not a problem, the earlier the better, I wish time passes quickly though tongue.gif

Watched ep. 5 last night (finally tongue.gif) and loved it. Riza's takedown of Roy was way better in this episode than in anime1, though yeah, the lack of mushrooms was disappointing (though the text falling on Roy's head was a nice touch).

Also, this episode definitely reaffirmed why Roy's my favorite character - always loved the cockiness/confidence that he exudes when he's protecting his friends/subordinates. Plus, his eyes seem more expressive this time around (the talk with Hughes & Armstrong, his indignation after Riza took him down, his glare at Scar, & his remembrance of Ishbal) than before.

Bring on chapter 95...and Viz, stop being dumb and release vol. 18 already!

Finally watched episode five! The 'pop' sound was possibly my favourite part of the entire episode! XD

Who was it that said that during the whole recount of Ishbal Riza was watching Roy? Yeh, I noticed that too!

My first exam is roughly around the same day as Chapter 95 is released. I have a bad feeling that I'm going to go into that exam with very little sleep because I've been waiting for the RAW....
