Yes, red is the color I want to see for her tattoo. I'm not going back to change anything if it's not, but I will happily celebrate if it is red!

Also, agreeing with Kale that the tattoo was done with ink and needles, her dad seems insane enough to go that route, although using alchemy to put it on her back would be risky if he didn't know how to do human transmutation like Ed did on himself when he was injured.

Welcome to all the newcomers! It's great to see so many new faces.

Also, why would they censor her back, it would make no sense, especially after keeping in Havoc's confession of his love of boobs, and added in Lust bouncing hers around, that bit actually disturbed me a bit.

*changes avatar*
jacksparrow589
Red makes sense. Worst case scenario is that someone sees it, and she could claim that it's a really odd birthmark... this is giving me a fanfic idea!

But yeah, I'm going with the ink-and-needle theory. Poor Riza, though. How would she be able to put up with it?
Aribelle
I'd always imagined it being red. I dunno why though.

But seriously, poor Riza! That must have hurt, regardless of the method it was applied. But she's tough.
FMAobsessed
I don't think I could ever get a tatoo. And a tatoo that size has got to hurt. Also it must have taken a long time. I probably would have moved too much if that was me and ruined it.
The_Twilight_Trinity
I've always wondered at what age her father gave her the tattoo. Did she accept it understanding what it was for, or was she young enough not to fully understand it yet? I know that there isn't a real answer-- just wondering what you guys thought.

I hope that the tattoo is red! Kind of a dark red though. Black would seem a little strange to me.

It can't have been too early, or it would have warped as she grew, probably around 14 is my guess, and after Roy left. I don't think she knew exactly what it was at first, just knew it had to do with alchemy and that her father thought it important.
angelofsarcasm89
I always imagined that her father put the tattoo on with alchemy, just because it would take such a long time to do it if he did it the old-fashioned way. I figure he did it when she was in her mid-teens, since either way he did it would have taken some time and require her to lay pretty still for awhile.

Well, she did develop the skill to lay still for hours on end as she became a sniper, which does require one to lie still for long periods of time. So, I'd imagine that lying down for a tattoo that's done by ink and needle would teach you to lie still right quickly.

As for when the tattoo was done, probably during puberty, as I'd guess that Hawkeye-sensei took into account Riza growing and developing at that time and with ink and needle, you can take your time.

Despite the pain that ink and needle causes, I'm thinking that Hawkeye-sensei didn't really want to hurt Riza, but at the same time, he was probably so concerned with keeping his work safe that he didn't care anymore.
FailToImpress
^Yeah I agree with what you just said.

I just always assumed her tattoo was black, and not just because the manga is in black and white. I guess I never really thought about it before. Hm.
_Jelly
I've only seen it in black so I dont know what colour that tattoo actually is, but if it's red, perhaps it was done with blood. Arrays drawn with blood dont come off right? Like Roy's... though, yeah it washed off a little I suppose. Other than that, probably needle and ink. I cant see Riza's father being a very compassionate man, regardless of what he told Roy before he died. For starters he put that tattoo on her in the first place and not in some other form (like that tiny book Al and co. got full of all that research). Now that's nasty.
Causmicfire
Making icons of the new opening, and thought I'd share these:


*quote from Spiderman




lyrics from Linkin Park's One Step Closer aw, this reminds me of the summer between middle school and highschool, and don't I feel old now XD





jacksparrow589
Causmicfire--You are on a roll with your icons lately! "Ghost Stories"... spooky!

I can imagine that Riza's dad would have had a hard time deciding how to encrypt (forgive me--CS major) the secret of fire alchemy, and that Riza was a last resort. Works pretty well, I'd say, given her personality, and his, too. He cares about his daughter... or maybe his direction to Roy as he was dying was because he put it on her back? Nah... What he says is too personal to be construed as that.

Well, finally put up the last chapter on Second Chances! Royai of epic proportions! Well, for me, anyway. Never thought I'd make it to 50 chapters! (Now imagine if I'd posted each of those one-shots seperately...)

Roy's array was actually cut into his skin when he fought Lust - not drawn. The subsequent chapters after the battle, you can see his right hand bandaged and in the scene where he pulls off his glove to fight Gluttony seen here:



as well as when he's at the tea party with Wrath, Ed, and Al, he has a scar of it.



Only reason why it's not seen now, it's healed since then.
SneakyRuler
Yes, I was so excited when I saw in the preview for next episode they left the the scar on Roy's hand in Brotherhood as well! And I'm so excited that Ishbal arc is getting closer... I'm so anxious to actually see Roy interact with Riza when she was still his teacher's daughter, and even more see her ask him to destroy the tattoo!

Anyway, starting to show Brotherhood to my father. Didn't have enough trust in it before, so I just presented anime1 to him... and now we gt to the creepy, not so much sense making parts (which I absolutely couldn't watch after reading manga) so I was like 'Okay, wait, I make some subtitles for you and you see it the better way...
hand-made-city
Okay, so this is off topic from what we've been talking about, but I felt like saying it anyway. Don't even know if it's been said before, but I'll give it a shot..

I was just re-watching the movie for some odd reason, and I kept replaying the scene where Roy leaves in the hot air balloon over and over... I remember the first few times I watched it, I had wondered what Hawkeye was so worried about, when he left on the balloon. I thought, "surely she knows he's going to help, so why try to stop him?" But now I'm thinking... she probably knew that these aircrafts and whatnot were coming from a different world, so what if she was actually afraid that Roy would cross over into the other world and leave her behind? And when I thought of it that way, I felt so bad for her! T_T Ahh.. just a thought. I kind of want to write a fanfic based on that now, even though I don't find myself writing anything based on the first anime anymore.

Okay yeah, we can go back to our other topics now. biggrin.gif Unless you have a response to this at all..
BirdieNumNum
I can't watch that scene from the movie anymore without thinking of the "Only room for one!" line from the Chibi Party OVA dub laugh.gif
hand-made-city
Yeah oh god... that made me die laughing!!
FMAobsessed
The "only room for one" line was hilarious. I really liked how Travis delivered it in the dub. Too bad Roy was dumped by Riza. Hopefully that doesn't happen in the manga, but I don't see how it would.
jacksparrow589
Nah--that chibi party was high on life... or something. They aren't going to dump each other. I fail to see how that is even possible, given the sheer amount of tough times they've been through together. That's what makes the pairing what it is! Well, that and subtle exchanges that still manage to make me turn into a complete fangirlish ooze all over my computer/manga.

But I secretly think that line was put in there just so that it could be made fun of later. The way it's delivered in the Japanese chibi party never fails to make me laugh. Not that the English version isn't great, but there's just something about it coming from a serious-to-downright-emo character (in THAT anime, mind you!) that just cracks me up.

And technically, that pic reminds me of something me and Kale wrote a while ago...

Aribelle, heck yes, FMA the musical XD Of course, I'd need Roy and Riza to be a couple tongue.gif

FMA: The Musical...directed by Mel Brooks wink.gif

I'd pay good money to see that.

Good god, I can't wait for this!!! laugh.gif I'm so confused, but as long as Roy and Riza are doing their thing... then that's okay! XD Ahhh it does remind me of Romeo and Juliet though... only a bit more flamboyant. (Thanks Mustang... take off that ridiculous mask now!)

Romeo & Juliet came to my mind, too, after seeing that pic for the first time. laugh.gif I don't know how this scene will connect to the story, but we'll see it soon. I really hope we'll hear Roy and Riza singing! It would be awesome biggrin.gif

I just found the pictures by myself. Just now. And thought: How about post em into the forums?

Yes it's the new figure and I don't mind the face as I'm planning on keeping him in an action pose anyway. At least i have the option for having 'Officer Mustang' when the mood hits me.

I think those are feathers on his mask, not bunny ears. It would have been even more cracktastic if he was wearing bunny ears.

Hi my fellow Royai fans! It's definitely been a while for me as I don't remember posting much past when this thread was in the 200s, let alone the 1200s! Kudos to everyone that's kept it so strong for so long!

I've been in and out of following the series, but I did get to read chapter 100. Wow is all I can say! Since this is shounen, I've chosen not to worry too much (especially having been a follower of Naruto and Bleach). If anything, I definitely see some major royai on the horizon!

Btw, uber adorable screencap from the wii game. Royai is <3

I dunno. Ed is quite smart and intellectual, so he could be a good fit for Ravenclaw.

As for Hawkeye, I see her as more of a Hufflepuff. Loyal, hardworking and isn't in it for personal glory.

Despite seeming to act contrary to that of typical Ravenclaws, both Ed and Roy could work as Ravenclaws - after all, Ed was able to become a State Alchemist at the age of twelve while Roy also able to decipher Riza's tattoo. I'm also willing to bet that Roy gained his State license at a young age (not as young as Ed though) as well.

Gotta be pretty booksmart to be able to do those things.

...But in reality, those two are far better suited for Gryffindor. wink.gif
