*edit* Wow...Lemon Tea was
mentioned. o.O Long before I arrived it seems. XD
Well...I don't usually go for shameless plugs...but if anyone would like a little light reading, I'm dying for some feedback on this
wait, are YOU shimegami-chan? if you are, ohmygosh iloveyourfanficsisweari'vereadthemeachtwentytimes. i was ecstatic after finding stand on ceremony and then i read all of them over again.
but anyway, i love it. i love how it goes through the subtleties of roy and riza's relationship and shows how love doesn't necessarily have to be so blatantly love.
i liked the OC lady and of course we knew roy wasn't gonna fall for her, not when he has hawkeye
but yeah, i loved it. the fandom needs more high-quality fanfics like this.
and if you're not shimegami-chan, pardon for the display of restrained fangirlyness
oh, i read the comments, and i'm not sure about the ranks, but i thought they went somewhat like this (starting from officers, because i don't know a lot about privates and blah blah blah):
sergeant major, souchou
warrant officer, junii
second lieutenant, shouii
first lieutenant, chuuii
(is there a junsa or anything that goes here?)
brigadier general, junshou
major general, shouchuu
lieutenant general, chuujou
commander whatever, daisoutou
not sure about the last 3. but following the pattern of jun-shou-chuu-tai, it would make sense that warrant officer is right below second lieutenant. the kanji for shou, chuu, and tai, are small, middle, and big, but i haven't really thought about/seen the kanji for jun. i don't think the factbook here listed the enlisted officers in any particular order, though.
and aoisora: very clean cobbing on the pictures, nice job!
i hate it when people on my newspaper staff do messy cobbing on pictures =P but anyway, don't they just look perfect together like that? i was gonna put riza in front of his arm with the rose, because he shouldn't be giving those flowers to anyone but her. or maybe gracia as a friendly gift. but silly roy.
