Aribelle
I don't hate the fact that he wears one, but that particular one is just awkward. It's more like an eye...flap. O.o

I guess the reason he'd wear it is for aesthetic purposes...but if he was gonna wear it for the aesthetics he could have gotten a less face devouring one haha. Ooooh well. As long as he doesn't have to get eyepatch'd in the manga it's all good.

But if he was shot directly in the eye...medical technology in Amestris must be pretty fantastic laugh.gif

As for his hair, I guess I don't really have a preference...it makes him look younger in the anime, although I think his facial structure has to do with that as well. He doesn't have as strong of a jaw in the anime.
Kale Mustang
Just like how Riza wanted to draw a mustache on Roy's face, maybe the eyepatch will make him look older. laugh.gif

But yeah, I hope he doesn't get one in the manga either...

I just read it earlier and yeah, my favorite has to be the cat whiskers - a lot of Roy's expressions remind me of a cat, especially when he gets wet... laugh.gif
Kirara
Like others I hate the eye patch thing. I am not really a big fan of the anime anymore but occasionally I will still watch AMV's. However when I see that eye patch I can't watch the AMV. laugh.gif

They should have given Anime!Roy sunglasses like Scar.
Turdaewen
I always get that when I read fanfics... I can't read any fanfics once they mention Roy's eye patch. XD lol And once it's there, I can't imagine him without it and it makes me really uncomfortable... Go figure! XD

It's just like when they put Riza too much OOC, like "OMG, I love Roy, but he doesn't love me back" or even making here an ice cold b**ch who fires her gun at anyone over nothing. That's just so not Riza Hawkeye, I can't even continue reading the fanfic XD
spectator
@Kirara: That makes Roy looks like he's completely blind. laugh.gif

By the way, the eye patch suits the movie Roy very well. It makes him look more 'emo'. What a depressed guy!

For the manga ending, I hope that it won't be like the movie.

Joking aside, I just hope that the characters get the endings they deserve at the end of the manga.

That's one of the reasons I hate that movie for... it's not like Roy is emo, come on!

And for manga ending, just prepare yourselves for the epic, it's Arakawa that we're speaking about.
FMAobsessed
@Kale I think that the characters will get the ending they deserve in the end. It may not be how we think it will end up, but I bet we will be happy.

@spectator your Royai proposal ending was awesome. You should write a fanfic about it.

I know exactly what you mean! Riza is way too OOC in a lot of fanfictions. Lately all I've been reading are things where Riza will shoot her gun at the slightest provocation, or she'll yell at Roy to do his paperwork FIFTY times!! I mean, yeah she does bug him to get his work done, but she only does it a few times, not every 5 minutes! And she hasn't ever pulled her gun on Roy in the office because of paperwork... it's just so OOC for her to do that. It drives me nuts....
RoyxRizaFan
Sometimes it can be really tough to find a good RoyAi fan fic. Either Riza's trigger happy, Roy's a play boy, or Riza's some damsel in distress and it's all really annoying.

@ Aribelle - Love that pic! It's so true!

I don't think manga!Roy could pull of an eye patch at all. I mean, it was pushnig it enough with anime!Roy, but...I don't know, there's just something about manga!Roy that makes it not suit him well at all...

And I agree that his hair is much better in the manga.

XD That is a priceless image! I doubt it'd help him in his mission to become Fuhrer, though LOL

I'm totally with you guys on this!! I don't mind "unlikly" situations in fanfics... these I often enjoy reading. However, "unlikely" OCC characterization of Riza in some of the fanfics are often just not enjoyable for me.

And, speaking of Roy's eye-patches....
I Just run into this one while going around the forum. XD

(I don't know who made it, but it's funny. XD It's currently ZakOnTheAttack's avatar. ^^)
rinoaebastel
That avatar is so cool Im just laughing so much xD

And about the fics, I only like a few of them that are most according to them... more or less because the characters you know, they aren't lineal, they have feelings (yeah yeah, like in the manga and that...and that doesn't mean that they are weak tongue.gif)
Aribelle
That icon is funny laugh.gif

Yeah, I don't like fanfics that are too OOC or have situations that are just too far out there, and I mean that doesn't just go for FMA. If there's a crackfic that's obviously exaggerating characters and having Riza being all trigger happy then sure, I can deal with that. I'm all for crackfics lol. But otherwise it's a turnoff.
Turdaewen
It is a turn off... :s

And I think Riza is a character who's not as easy to write, actually, because there are so many sides to her.
I mean, you can't make her too much 'heart felt', cause she's someone who keeps her thoughts and feelings to herself, mostly, but she cannot be too aloof and cold either, cause she is kinda caring and shows warmth in any given occasion where there's no danger/work involved.
She can never be that damsel in distress, but she cannot be that 'military woman stereotype' either, like the woman cops you see in many movies. She's still very feminine, aside from being strong and collected.

So it is very hard to write her lines and it turn out to be believable.
sidekick.kep37
I'll admit I've gone through the whole super OOC phase between Roy, Riza, and various other characters from FMA in writing fanfics way in my past (like.. when I was 12...). And now that I'm much older now and know that there's more depth to the characters than what anime1 provided us with, I really, really look down on myself for having had written such... things. As of now, they're being taken down and rewritten for the purpose of quality and fixing the character. And now when I see a fic written to those OOC-stereotypes I sigh, roll my eyes, and alt + <- myself outta there.

There have actually even been times where I tried giving constructive criticsm (sp? i hate this word...) to the author, but s/he thinks I'm flaming... so yah...

@ spectator Congrats. You have also made my day and relieved me of my headache. Seriously, go make a fanfic outta that. I would just melt. lol, Riza was like "What the frack are you talking about?". roflmao

OT
Sorry I have been on in a while either... computer decided to... die.
jacksparrow589
Haven't been on in a few days... Nannying a sick child and my brother's college graduation kind of dominated my life. ANYWAY...

Hmm... manga!Roy's hair... I don't like or dislike it much more or less than any anime style. I just love when, as he's trying to figure things out after seeing the phonebooth where Hughes was killed, he musses his slicked-back hair into its original state. It's just so CUTE! I can just see a young Roy fic with Chris taking the time to slick his hair back and him messing it up. I wonder what she would do to a disobedient child...

Oh geez... I always find that writing a good Royai fanfic is hard, and that most FMA fics are hard because, as has been said, the characters are SO complex. It's wonderful that we have such multi-faceted characters, but man... I'm drained after writing a good fic.

Kirara--Excellent explanation! You have put into words a wonderful argument, and while I just skimmed over it for the sake of time, it was AMAZING. Props to you! (And the sunglasses for Roy... It could almost be one of those dead sexy moments, but I don't think it would go with the uniform. I'm thinkin' classic biker: white t-shirt, black leather jacket, and fitted jeans... No, I am not drooling over the image as I write this! wink.gif )

Tombow--I don't know whether to hug you or be a bit angry at that icon. It's hilarious, but also just too weird. (This coming from me, I know... Pot calling the kettle black...)
spectator
Fanfic? Hmmm... I'll think about that. I have a lot of unfinished fanfic to be completed. If I'm going to write it, maybe it's just an one-shot work. I don't know.

That proposal thingy is just an idea that suddenly flashed through my head yesterday, although I have thought about how Roy would propose all the time. I feel that it's kinda OOC when I read it.

Gyah!!! I totally agree with you guys. It's very hard to write Roy and Riza. Their relationship is too subtle to understand. But I like the way they interact with each other. If you squint, you'll see that Roy likes to tease Riza in the manga. The fun thing is to see how Riza annoys Roy back. XD Such a cute couple!

@Tombow: Lol, I've seen that before somewhere, on another site/forum laugh.gif

Ugh, I'm having a hard time replying because I don't know what OOC stands for. Can someone help? *puppy eyes*
Causmicfire
The eye-patch...seriously, couldn't they have given him a smaller one...every time I first see him with the eye-patch I think Phantom of the Opera, because the thing practically covers half his face. What really confused me was the need for the eye-patch once he grew out his bangs...if they're covering it, why have the eye-patch at all?

Tombow - Haven't seen that icon in a while XD

J.S. - Hrm, he might have a bike, but his main mode of transportation would suit his name, he'd probably have an older one, kept in good condition....oh, how I love muscle cars. lol, now I can't keep myself from picturing the FMA cast in Speed Racer and Grease Lightning

As for the discussion on OOC behavior in fics, I know that when I first started writing I was guilty it every now and then, but as I grew more familiar with the characters the OOC behavior vanished.

Kirara - Great argument, and good point about Havoc, Falman, Fuery, and Breda not being called out for following him. I think the only person who was possibly closer to Roy than Riza was Hughes, and even then it's still different, because of the way the tattoo binds then together.

As for chapter 39, she doesn't just give up when Lust tells her about Roy, she shoots at her until she's out of ammo. She's still trying to protect herself and Alphonse, until she no longer can. I pretty sure Riza knows her own limits, and being unarmed against a homunculus like Lust is probably quite frightening. That added on to Roy supposedly being dead, and her not being able to protect Alphonse would be quite confidence shattering to even the strongest of people.
amestris_star
Mmmh, speaking of Chapter 39 and the most recent chapters, I had written this long post a couple of months ago...
http://amestris-star.livejournal.com/35305.html

Maybe it can reflect some of my thoughts on the matter.

PS. Hopefully this afternoon I manage to post another part of the fic me and Kale are writing smile.gif
Tombow
You all have nice point, and it's a joy reading this thread. ^^
About fanfics... I can kind of imagine you all struggle and spend great efforts to keep Riza within her character. That really shows in your fics. You guys write awesome Royai fic, and I enjoy reading them very much. ^^

@Causmicfire - Great point about Riza in that chapter!!

@jacksparrow - Heh, hope I didn't offend you with that icon. Just in case you misunderstood, I was not making fun of Roy. If you read the posts in the preceding page, you will see that we were talking about "unfashionableness" of Roy's eye-patch, and the point of bringing that icon here was about making fun of Roy's EYEPACTH, or more specifically, "unfashionableness" of it. smile.gif

@kkg22104 - Sorry for using shorthand. OOC stands for Out Of Character. ^^
OT:
@sidekick.kep37 - Nice to see you again! Hope your computer is doing all right now. biggrin.gif

The way I understand this scene is that Roy now forgive Riza from going berserk and willing to lose her life before. He had probably already forgive her before, but now that he is teasing her about it, it seems like it's now something from the past.


Now, a little change of subject, but I was thinking about this last night: you know how we are going to have the Ishval-arc animated, right? Well imagine all the official arts that are going to be released in a calendar or magazine form of Royai younger, with papa-Hawkeye, or Riza's naked back with Roy at the front biggrin.gif biggrin.gif biggrin.gif biggrin.gif I'm already drooling about the idea of every official Royai scans we are going to get biggrin.gif biggrin.gif biggrin.gif Couldn't sleep last night ^^''

And for your Royai tastebuds, and for whoever on the thread was following it (even as a continuation of the Royai Festival) :

http://amestris-star.livejournal.com/46607.html#cutid1

Part 4 posted (finally managed to!) Tomorrow I guess I'll be posting other 1 or 2 parts... hopefully smile.gif Hope you all enjoy.
jacksparrow589
Tombow--Oops! I didn't mean to sound offended, really! It's just that half the time, the icon is funny, and the other half, well... *head/desk* The eyepatch is very unfashionable, and that's all I really got out of it. But truly, that's got nothing to do with you posting it! I'm sorry that it came out that wayyyyy! *pulls a Ritsu (from Fruits Basket)*

Gimpyhair--I think I might spontaneously combust from happiness when later chapters are animated--Barry, Riza, and Roy, Roy vs. Lust (and the surrounding events), the transfer, Ishbal, Riza and Pride, kicking off the coup... and last but never, EVER least: chapters 94 and 95. I know they won't be out for quite a while, but I hope it's not going to be during a finals week or anything!
RoyxRizaFan
Barry isn't incredibley far at this point. He's right after Greed, which should be starting probably next week or the week after, about.
Michiyo-
@Gimpyhair: I imagined those official arts... Now I wanna see them for real! biggrin.gif The arts will definitely be awesome. ^^

@amestris_star: Thanks for part 4, I just read it. Nice work again! biggrin.gif

I guess that's a little more than that. XD Not only he's 'over it', now he's also fully aware to the fact that she sorta broke down with his 'death' and now is teasing her for caring so damn much. XD He thinks he's something else, doesn't he?? lol

When the scenes I am so looking forward to finnaly get animated, I have reason to believe I will die and come back due to awesomeness (...unless... they don't become awesome... what am I thinking?!?!? -knocks on wood-). And the calendars.... gah! the calendars! Wow... I can't wait.

Barry isn't incredibley far at this point. He's right after Greed, which should be starting probably next week or the week after, about.


Oh my God! You're right! Barry waltzes himself in there right after the Greed arc. rofl. Wow, and that's when all the good stuff starts to come in too. I don't know why, but IRL I'm having an evil laughing fit...

Actually it goes Greed, Ling, and then Barry. But you're right, it's coming up pretty fast!

@amestris_star Thank you for posting more of you and Kale's fanfic. I know that Kale writes Roy's parts, and amestris writes Riza's parts. But who writes for the other characters like Hughes, Chris, and Vanessa? And how do you decide who writes for each character?

Our secret...really. I'll say that sometimes it's obvious who's writing who, but...for the most part, you'd have to guess. wink.gif

The same thing applies with who writes for each character...

I've been working on a cross stitch for my grandparents...meant to start it ages ago, way to fail memory. So, while I was looking over the pattern today at a meeting for AX, I started thinking about how awesome it would be to cross stitch the fma characters, so I'm going to go buy some graph paper while I'm on vacation and make some patterns. I might attempt to make one that is just Roy's flame alchemy circle, and if we ever get a really good look at the text on Riza's tattoo, I'll consider that too, but mainly I'll first attempt the character faces.

After rambling about cross stitching, I've just remembered that not everyone knows what it is, so here's an example, not my work...not that awesome at it yet.

That would be awesome if you'd manage to do the pattern for Roy's symbol, it would just be plain awesome and I'd do that straight away (even though I haven't done any cross-stitch for ages unknown!)

Oh, I remember that screenshot, it was from episode...7? I'm not sure. Yeah, I was wondering who that was, and now that you bring it up, it kinda does look like him...it's too dark to tell though.

@Kale and amestris thank you for answering my questions regarding your story. I enjoy reading it, so now I can enjoy trying to guess who is writing for each character. smile.gif

I still need to watch episode 12. But that scene in episode 13 sounds exciting.

This was probably asked a million times, but can someone tell me how to put up spoiler tags?

Actually, Barry shows up with Riza at the end of chapter 30, and Ling comes in at the end of chapter 32. I'm really looking forward to it!

And the chess scene! Woot! Do we know for sure that they're keeping it in? I guess they have to, as an introduction to Grumman and the chess thing shows up later, as well (in another one of my fave scenes)
