Aha, yes we're PG13 board, and we have restrictions on posting "mature" content. In general, if the material is the kind of stuff that's classified as "adult content" on Fanfictionnet, or DiviantArt, etc., then probably it's safer to hold off posting that content here as well. smile.gif
(In those cases, you can post the link to your work on DA account or FF-Net account, etc. where they have their own "viewer age filter," then add the caution on your post here saying it's "mature content," and that will be fine.) smile.gif

It would be nice to see some Royai conversation... And maybe we can get it next chapter! It just probably won't be longer than 2, 3 pages.... Even if we get a lil bit of convo, I'll be really happy XD

Don't worry, I knew what you meant - I was slightly joking about it too. I trust most people's judgment not pull something like that on the board.

As for 'adult content' for those of age...there's a rather large gulf between simply being 'mature' and 'old enough to access' tongue.gif

wow, so many cute fanarts *---*
thanks Alzea, Mirevel, amestris_star, RoyxRizaFan4ever and HannahBlack09!

yeah, it would be nice if we get some conversation between roy and riza next chapter...
but I think it'll not be fluffy or something like that, because after all, they still in the "war camp"
maybe something like the Gluttony's scene. (when Roy saves Riza). But not something so... Cold. The circunstances are completely different, more complicated and royaish now.
In the worst circunstances, we'll get a half page. (but of course i don't want it, i want a whole chapter!) because even both of them have some things to talk about, the mostly important part passed, now Hiromu have some other things to focus. (Izumi, Pride, Hoho...)

Me too! I want something, even if it's only a couple pages...my mind is going crazy thinking of all the things they could say to each other haha, I really hope we get to see them have a moment next chapter. I'm pretty sure they will at some point, because the situation kind of calls for it and in the past Arakawa-sensei hasn't left us hanging. I just don't know if it will be 96 or 97 or beyond...hopefully 96, I don't know if I can wait much longer!!

And thanks to HannahBlack09 for more fanart!! The second to last was was super cute wub.gif
Alzea
Awww, so many great fanarts ~Itís nice to see them after this long, busy day~Thanks to everyone who have posted them~ biggrin.gif

Royai conversation, that'd be a perfect chapter for a royai day~ Still there are other important fights and characters in the manga~We are happy, now it's time for other fans...
HannahBlack09
Yeaaah, sadly I dont think we are going to see any royai scene for a while sad.gif , Arakawa has to focus on the other characters. Lets just hope that we can have at least to pages in which they can talk alone.

I would like to know what could happen in chap 96, because I have no idea unsure.gif

Um, RoyxRizaFan4ever and I (RoyxRizaFan) have similar usernames, but we're two different people LOL I'm happy everyone liked the fan arts, though! It's kind of hard to find good ones because so many people post the same ones (online) over and over again...but hopefully I can find some new ones soon, because there's been such beautiful fan art recently!

@ HannahBlack - LOVE those fan arts! For some reason, the last two didn't show up on my screen, but I loved all the others ones!

If they don't get a page or two to talk...then we will, of course, drown the world in fan fiction of what SHOULD have been said...

Roy was collapsed when we last left him, though, so I doubt he'll be leaping back up without a problem the next time we see him (I think I'd be being too hopeful to say next chapter, b/c as mentioned before, people like Hoho Papa and Ran Fan need their screentime). I'm sure they'll have some sort of scene, even if it isn't like ZOMG ROYAI somehow she'll be the one to help him back up (because Ed and Scar sure as hell aren't going to do it).

But then again, this is all hopeful speculation tongue.gif
Michiyo-
Soo many fanarts! I love them! The power of Royai is amazing. biggrin.gif

I'll be very happy if Arakawa gives us 2 or 3 pages with Roy and Riza in chapter 96. One month wait is too long.

Oh, I'm already looking forward to the fan fics that have come and will come of this chapter biggrin.gif

I would be happy if she helped him up and they shared a look, that would be enough for me. And I do want to get back to Ran Fan/Ling/Greedling. I feel like we never see enough of them sad.gif

I'm gonna say that if there's a Royai scene/moment in chapter 96, it'll probably be Roy offering to find someone to tend to Riza's injuries.
black~hayate
I think there would be more than that.
Don't you all be too pessimistic, we got wonderful Royai in 95th chapter, while all of you panicked (well, I did too >D).
I think we get some conversation and comforting stuff. Maybe a little. And it wouldn't be very romantic. But it WILL be there >D The royai stuff in the next chapter I mean.

Thanks you for sending the links all those great fanarts!

About Royai Day:

I was thinking about this: for Royai day, maybe every member could post their top 5 favorite royai fanfictions? I love reading fanfictions, and I'm sure there's many awesome stories out there that I have yet to read.

I don't know how you usually work for this party, but if we create a new topic, the first post could be the archive of everyone's top 5 fanfictions, with links to everyone's fanwork (banners, fanart, video, etc.) created for the day, with screencaps, with maybe a little text explaining what is Royai day, what is Royai, etc. So, if later we want to look at those memorable posts again, we won't have to search in those 1020 Royai Thread pages biggrin.gif

What do you think?

@Gimpyhair - Whether to make the separate thread is partly based on how many participants we expect to have. I think, if we can reasonably expect 20 or more participants or so, maybe the separate thread may get warranted. Also, in that case we probably can not have the thread in Character discussion forum, and either have one thread for this year's Royai Day in Spam Central, or have one thread for posting original fanfics in Fanfics sub-forum, posting original fanarts in Fanarts sub-forum, and original fanowrks in Fanworks forum. But this will cause the celebration to spread out, hence it may be preferable to have it right on this thread, then the rest is up to the archiver to make the album for this year's Royai Day, then POST THAT BACK on her post on June 11 of this year, then later if we get back to the archiver's post on June 11, 2009, it should be all listed up there. smile.gif

That would be the starting point. Then Riza'll tell him that she doesn't want anyone to see the tattoo, to which Roy will probably say something like, "You're right, Lieutenant. Let me go see if I can find something to patch you up." And then he'll probably cover her with his coat while he tends to her injuries.

Better?

I like this idea. We usually bring our fav fanarts on Royai Day, but I think we can do that with famfics also, but please ask our organizers.. ^^ I think the reason we didn't do that in the past was because in the past we get lots of lots of original fanfics for the festivity and we readers often got overwhelmed catching up with reading. XD (One way to avoid that is to allow writers to submit the fics over some period, including before the Royai Day and after the Royai Day... but that's up to the organizers...^^)
And speaking of... you guys know that we haven't yet decided on the actual dates and duration of this year's celebration, right?? I think Causmicfire brought up 2 or 3 suggested dates and durations, and I think you guys' feed-back to the organizers are needed on deciding which dates & duration option to choose. smile.gif

Personally, I think (not to be dramatic or anything) that Hawkeye will eventually be killed [or maybe further injured].

I think it is meant to be clear to all of us readers that Hawkeye has feelings for Mustang. That said, in this chapter is was also was implied that she'd kill herself if he was killed, hidden under that she would do it for the sake of removing the tattoo for good and no one else would fall to its power. In fact, I think it is so well stated that it will never happen.

For this reason, I theorize - what if, depending on if Mustang chooses to continue to bring her along, Hawkeye ends up getting killed and the reverse happens, and we get confirmation of his feelings? *le gasp*

But maybe he's smart enough to try and get her out of it....and even if he made her turn back, she'd come right back. Maybe he has the upper hand in a battle then BOOM - Hawkeye comes back and he freaks out. And then its GAME OVER for Hawkeye. Because as awesome as she is, she wasn't doing so awesome at the end of her the little Hawkeye v. Envy battle, and he's the weakest of all of the Homunculi. Against Wrath, Pride, or Father? *___*

Unless Roy-Boy saved her. But still...

I just can't figure out how she'll fit in that deep in the battle. She said so herself that "guns don't seem to work on anything these days".

But about 99.99% of all of my theories are WRONG, so yeah, no. XD

I'm working on my MMV.....I'm trying to figure out how to pan and zoom. >O<
Aribelle
I think submitting fics is a great idea, as well as any other fanworks. I know I would definitely make an effort to contribute. As for dates/duration, I'm relatively new to this fandom so I can't comment on past experiences, but I like the idea of starting a few days before and ending a few days after, like the 8th - 15th or something like that.

Although I dont like your theorie at all, I really think it is possible. She might die if she wants to confront any of the homoculi that are alive, it is true that she was dying just dealing with Envy. She would have to stay really close to Roy or Edward and help them if they miss someone (like she did in Ishbal or in many missions) because sadly she cannot protect herself with only bullets anymore sad.gif .

I think that this would have to be the solution, because I dont really thing she is going to leave them to fight, she is too stubborn to let, not just Roy, but all of them that will be in the fight.

Trust me, I don't like it either! But I saw the same possibilities as you.

I really hope that none of our favorite characters die. But I've got a bad feeling someone[s] we ALL love will go...[besides Hoho. xD]

That would be the starting point. Then Riza'll tell him that she doesn't want anyone to see the tattoo, to which Roy will probably say something like, "You're right, Lieutenant. Let me go see if I can find something to patch you up." And then he'll probably cover her with his coat while he tends to her injuries.

Better?


If something like this doesn't happen the fanficcers will be all over this idea! XD I love it!


My job is done.

See, I can write fanfics in my head - but I never have the motivation to write them on paper... laugh.gif

Well, the bullets do work, just not as quickly as one would hope for. The homunculi have to die until they run out of souls, kind of like in a video games, it's not game over until run out of lives, so she could be a valuable assist in taking the homunculi out, as long as she keeps from getting captured.

For RoyAi day, I'll definitely be contributing fic.

I believe suggested three different time frames: We could have a whole week of RoyAi Day from the 8th through the 14th, so that everyone has a chance to contribute, the 9th-13th(just a bit shorter), still a good amount of time for all posters to join in, or the 10th-12th because depending on which timezone everyone is on posts could fall on any one of those days and still be officially RoyAi Day in some part of the world...for example, by the time it's 10:00 am on the 11th for me, it'll already be the 12th over in Japan.

Like years before, each day could encompass something in the general theme, "New Beginnings", but have their own sub-theme.

Such as the "Infinite Playlist" theme Kale Mustang put forth. People could choose a song they feel relates to Roy and Riza, and use their own interpretation of the song for inspiration for a fic/art/amv/mmv. (Or we could all make suggestions & compile a list of songs before hand)

Maybe one day can be post-series themed, as in each piece of fanwork submitted should deal with what might (might have) happen(ed) after the end of the manga (anime).

If that sounds too restricting, we can just go with the general theme, and let everyone go from there.

How come I've never thought to utilize the "search topic" button before?

I'll come back to add in more info later, I need to get dinner started.

Oh, and lets get some feedback about the date range! We can really get into discussion about the event after that.

Personally, I think (not to be dramatic or anything) that Hawkeye will eventually be killed [or maybe further injured].

I think it is meant to be clear to all of us readers that Hawkeye has feelings for Mustang. That said, in this chapter is was also was implied that she'd kill herself if he was killed, hidden under that she would do it for the sake of removing the tattoo for good and no one else would fall to its power. In fact, I think it is so well stated that it will never happen.

For this reason, I theorize - what if, depending on if Mustang chooses to continue to bring her along, Hawkeye ends up getting killed and the reverse happens, and we get confirmation of his feelings? *le gasp*

But maybe he's smart enough to try and get her out of it....and even if he made her turn back, she'd come right back. Maybe he has the upper hand in a battle then BOOM - Hawkeye comes back and he freaks out. And then its GAME OVER for Hawkeye. Because as awesome as she is, she wasn't doing so awesome at the end of her the little Hawkeye v. Envy battle, and he's the weakest of all of the Homunculi. Against Wrath, Pride, or Father? *___*

Unless Roy-Boy saved her. But still...

I just can't figure out how she'll fit in that deep in the battle. She said so herself that "guns don't seem to work on anything these days".

But about 99.99% of all of my theories are WRONG, so yeah, no. XD

I'm working on my MMV.....I'm trying to figure out how to pan and zoom. >O<


I've also considered the idea of her getting seriously injured or even killed (ugh, I don't even like typing it lol), just because to make Roy a sacrifice didn't the homunculi say he'd have to open the gate? And so I feel like they'd go after her in order to make him try and bring her back. And that makes me very nervous. However, if they tried and didn't succeed it would make for some really great Royai moments. But it still makes me very nervous lol.

I personally think that Riza knows that she stands no chance against Wrath, Pride, or Father, and I think she'd also figure that if she put herself in a situation where she was up against them it would just make trouble for Roy, so I'm fairly confident that she'll be smart when facing them...not 100%, but fairly.

Kale Mustang
For those wondering about my 'Infinite Playlist' idea, it is and isn't a sub-theme. What I mean by that is that the overall theme is 'New Beginnings' but I also realized that any moment can mark a new beginning.

Songs, either the song itself or the theme of the song, are often used by people to remember a particular moment that's meaningful to them: first meeting, first kiss, first dance, etc. so I thought that using a song's theme/imagery/ideas would be a neat idea because everyone has a different interpretation of a song's lyric. It's a bit more challenging than a straight-up songfic as I didn't just want the fanwork to simply integrate the song - but rather, I want to know why a specific song was chosen.

Hope this clears up any questions about the idea itself.
FMAobsessed
I feel like I haven't replied to anything in years. In reality I think it has been a day. My brain feels like mush because of chapter 95 and the fact that I am done with finals and out for the summer.

I cannot believe that Royai day is almost here. I don't know if I will be able to do anything, but I will enjoy the fandom of everything.

I really hope that Riza won't be killed, but Arakawa has stressed the needing Roy to open the gate, and if Riza dies that might just push him over the edge. No scratch that, that will put him over the edge. But I don't like thinking these things. Because I want them both to be alive and have recognized their love for one another. Honestly is that too much to ask?

laugh.gif

Thanks. I had a feeling that everyone would like the scenario that I put forth (and yes, I actually thought of it on the fly).

I thought it was a plausible scenario because it's actually subtle, as on the surface, it's two comrades/friends just taking care of one another but under the surface, it's more meaningful because of their bond.
amestris_star
@DistantBlue: Possible situation, but I don't think it will happen. Consider this, we know that Riza wouldn't live without Roy, we got the confirmation ample times, with Chapters 39 and 95 being the ultimate proof.
Do you think Roy on his part, would continue living as if nothing happened? He lost Maes. He looses Riza. The man wouldn't be able to sustain two such great losses in his life and I think he would decide to end it - similar as to what Riza told him in the latest chapter.
It may sound overly optimistic but I don't think any one of the two will die. Other people may, but not Roy or Riza. Plus, I think that Arakawa doesn't have in mind killing off any of the main characters (i.e. Ed, Win, Al, Roy or Riza). They were so close to die, Roy and Riza I mean, plenty of times... and considering they haven't up till now, means something to me.

Plus I want them to survive all of this mess together.

Yay for Royai day coming up <3

The subtlety of Royai is one of the reasons I love them so much. And that scenario def fits them perfectly; it says a lot about what they have between each other without throwing it in your face. And I feel like that just makes it so much sweeter, because Arakawa doesn't have to go out of her way to show us how close they are, it shows in nearly everything they do whether that was her intention or not laugh.gif

I have to admit I am still a little nervous for Riza, but I vaguely remember reading somewhere that Riza is Arakawa's favorite character (is this true or have I just fabricated it lol?) so hopefully she won't do anything too bad to her!

I'm so glad the semester will be over in time for Royai day, I'll have plenty of time to fangirl properly biggrin.gif

^@Aribelle: Fear not, I don't think Arakawa has something so dramatic/angsty in her mind in relation to Roy and Riza. Maybe yes, they'll be (yet again) on the brink of death, any one of them, but I don't think they'll die wink.gif

True, she have no chances against Wrath, Pride and Father, guns are no use. BUT, against Wrath, she have one advantage: she is the only one who knows that he choose his wife, something that could be his one weakness. Plus, Roy and Riza did save her from the Central army, when the army were allowed to shoot "anyone but Mustang". Bradley could, from a certain degree, be grateful to them. Hawkeye have no chance with guns, but with words, I think she could turn the tables.

Just giving you guys a heads-up.

I'm good for June 9-13, though I have an all-day family thing on the 13th so most likely everything on my end will be worked on the 14th.

If I have internet access, I'll try to work on the 13th when I can.

Re: Playlist. There used to be a very cool "character music/soundtrack" thread on these forums SOMEWHERE, but it was back in like 2006-2007 and I think it died. Making a list of songs could be fun.


I have had some thoughts about whether the Roy arc is going to continue from here on out, and I have a feeling is ISN'T, however, I think that Riza's injury has the potential to be an important plot point since tending to it could possibly reveal the tattoo, and right now, the only ones we KNOW whoknow about it are Roy and Riza. (Not even sure if Father knows. Maybe he has some sort of suspicion? Knowing the abilities Roy is capable of?) Who knows. Probably won't go anywhere, but it COULD. Someone should write a fic about that. (Hell, I would just like the see a fic of Roy tending Riza's injuries!! W00t. Sexy.)
RoyxRizaFan
Liz - Every scennenario Arakawa skips over from here on out...I am making a fan fiction for. It's decided LOL I have faith that she'll bring that up eventually, though, because of the tattoo. It's kind of unavoidable.

How bad are her injuries? Are they enough to prevent her from fighting to her best capacity, do you think?

LOL I forgot about this idea. Now my fan fiction fits under the "New Beginnings" AND "Infinite Playlist" because I named it Never Too Late (by Two Days Grace), even without knowing this...I'll try and write another one, though!

As for sacrifices, if they're against shooting Mustang, they're using him for something. "Opening the door"...sorry to sound stupid, but what's the difference between "opening the door" and being a sacrifice? Is there one?

Does it mean he's the one that makes the sacrifice, and then Ed and the sacrifices are used as a trade for Truth? I'm sorry, I'm bad with this Truth door/gate/whatever stuff.

I tried to search for a link last night, and did not find one. Hence I think I am just crazy laugh.gif

I think the Roy arc is pretty much over, although I think it deserves at least a few more panels to wrap it up, which is what I think we're going to get. And I don't know how bad Riza's injury is...but it seems pretty superficial, and she seems to be doing just fine for the time being, although I suppose once the adrenaline wears off she might start feeling it more. But I do think it warrants a "how are you feeling?" or "we should get that taken care of" from Roy. At least biggrin.gif
Kale Mustang
If anything, I think Riza's more just banged up and sore than at risk of bleeding heavily...as her injury looks like, to borrow a phrase here, 'tis only a flesh wound'.

If the wound was bad, Roy would probably consider cauterizing the wounds until they could properly treat it later.
amestris_star
In fact, Chapter 39 shows that he knows how to treat those kinds of wounds... if they were bad or if Riza was in danger, he would have done just like he did with his own (cauterize them through fire, just like his). However, just like Kale said in his post, probably he knows that it's not such a... worrisome wound i.e. she won't bleed to death so he might take care of it himself.
Aribelle
Yeah, I mean I think her biggest problem is going to be pain, but she's tough, I don't really think it'll phase her haha. I mean she didn't even flinch when the injury initially happened.

Of course, then there's infection and whatnot, but this is manga-land, such things do not exist laugh.gif

I still hope Roy checks up on her though. It would be a nice gesture biggrin.gif

He will. He'll probably do it in a roundabout fashion if there's an audience, but if they're alone, he'll just ask directly.

There was a really good fanfiction written back in the day that occurred post-Ishbal after Roy burned Riza's back. I totally wish I could find it. It was really well-written.
