While it's fun to think about, personally I can't really see Roy and Riza getting married and spawning a bunch of flaming mini-snipers to defend to future of Amestris.

(Normal women who are pregnant are scary enough; Riza would probably go on a killing spree and make herself Fuhrer or something.)
angelstar2408
^ Personally I can't imagine a pregnant Riza but that idea would be very funny! laugh.gif
black~hayate
haha, THAT topic again.
Some people can't see that and this and some people can.
Like me. I can see them married with kids. Yes, I can xD
Seeing Riza influated by mother instincts must be really epic...
SneakyRuler
I can see them having kids as well. I can see them being parents, not the 'My daughter is so awesome, wanna see a picture?' kind of parents, I might add, but parents anyway. Under a little different circumstances, let's face it, when you expect to be axecuted in a few years you don't plan a family. But there's nothing wrong with them and as much as Ishbal affected them (and is still affecting) I think they would manage somehow, if the need occured.

Nice videos, Dearheart I like how the first combines both Brotherhood and anime1 quite naturally (and I like Roy-on-a-liana drawing in the second one).
Turdaewen
I don't think the Ishval question is actually a question... I think the whole thing is a little more... subtle than that.

Is a matter more of being "in character" or "out of character" and practically all the Fanfics I've read regarding anything towards 'Mustang family' is completely OOC.

This is how I look at it:

Unlike Hughes, whose 'goal' in life was actually 'settling down and raising a family', Roy always dreamt of becoming Fürher and sorta 'dedicate his life to protect the country'. And that sort of goal he has requires a level of self sacrifice that definitely does not allow him to be a 'carefree' sort of person (which is usually the way they portrait Roy in a 'married' situation): his life belongs to the State and so does his future family (which I think, in his case, is not only possible, but required for the Fürher position).

And that's the main thing: Men of the State don't belong to themselves. Their wives are not only their wives: they are First Ladies, which takes on to them certain duties. She's the State's wife. The same happens to their kids.
You see that perfectly with Mrs. Bradley: her posture, manner of speaking, manner to raise her 'son'... everything is not 'carefree'.
And that's not a bad thing, it's only a sort of dynamics they have to have as a family because they're 'in charge' of the country.

So, it's sorta naive to think Roy would marry lightly. He would not. Could not. And, we can see he gets that better than most people. He chose a certain path in his life that requires him to sacrifice a LOT, including a simple, down to earth life. He cannot, as a leader, be so selfish. He cannot hope to desire things for himself.


That doesn't mean they cannot get married or that I don't seem them being a family: quite the contrary! I actually do think that, if they live all the trouble and Roy becomes Fürher, they will get married, but it's a sort of marriage that has NOTHING to do with what we're accustomed to see in movies and even in fanfics: they'll marry for love for eachother, but, above all, to continue dedicating their lives to other people. Just the same as all other Heads of State.

They're not the sort of people who'll find happiness in the 'small things' (like Hughes): their nature is such that they're only happy when they're working for something bigger than themselves and their family. To do so would be unsatisfying. Which is a sort of life I actually praise, cause I think there're things in life that matter a lot more than having a carreer, money and a family to look after. Some people may find themselves in those things, but I can see, I don't. And I see Roy and Riza don't either and that's why they have been going down this road for so long.
I wanna have all those things, but they're not my ultimate goal in life and I know I'll have to sacrifice some things (even if it's my sunday evenings with my family) to work on my true dreams.

As Arakawa says all the time: equivalent exchange.
Dearheart

That part is a endless source of fun!! lol

You can put practically anything there and it'll sound funny. XD
SneakyRuler
When I see how accurately and pointedly Turdaewen expresses herself I feel totally worthless case in that matter. That's what I was trying to say (well, that, and you expanded the thought a lot further to consequences I hadn't even imagined). Yes, they are both the kind who want to make a better world and live accordingly and they would live to the name of Fuhrer and First Lady.
It's hard to imagine Riza giving up her position of Roy's bodyguard but to become a professional wife... but guess a wife can accompany her husbband to certain meeting and such.

Dearhart, nice picture! This is third or forth modification of these panels I've seen and they are great every time! I guess that's because you can let your fantasy free and make up any ridiculous stuff and it's still funny as almost anything not work related seems unnatural and out of place for them.

What? huh.gif Wait, what?

Where did you find that? That just seems too weird for me to believe unless it's been officially said somewhere.... Which would just seem strange and unnecessary. Why would Riza need another name?

I always imagined that if Roy and Riza ever had a son they would name him after Maes. That's just always been the way I've thought of it.... But then again, I think it's unlikely that Arakawa would ever tell us if they got married or had children, so the idea of a Royai marriage and Royai spawn will probably remain in the realms of fanfiction.
jacksparrow589
As to this thing about Riza's real name: Thirded. Wouldn't her family name be "Hawkeye", anyway? Ed and Al have stated that they specifically took their mother's name, but other than that, the tradition of women taking their husbands' last name seems to be quite in tact. (EDIT: And, of course, reading this later, I made it sound like Riza married her dad. blink.gif Um, no. I just meant that you would think that if her mother took "Hawkeye" as her surname when she and Papa Hawkeye married, Riza would most likely have the same last name.)

Of course Roy dresses up and sings opera to Riza when they're alone! Yeesh... Why people didn't suspect that in the first place is beyond me... tongue.gif

Ah, Turdaewen, you make your point as eloquently as ever, and I am right there with you. Not that I really saw us getting to see a steamy/ooey-gooey-lovey-dovey scene with those two after I really got into the pairing. Let's leave that to the fanfic writers. (Wait... I write fanfic... Crap... Other fanfic writers... I indulge only occasionally anymore.)

Aww, that would be adorable. I'd love it if they did that.


At the moment I'm still recovering from a fic I finished reading last night... y'know when they affect you so much you can't get them out of your head for a while after? This is one of those. Actually, I can't believe I hadn't read it before now, I thought I'd scoured the whole fanfic site already. XD Anyway, I don't want to say much in case people haven't read it, but let's just say it evoked a lot of emotion.

I imagine some of you have already read it though, it's called "Apotheosis" by Misckat on ff. net. I recommend it highly!

Where did you get that from?? O.o Riza's name is simply "Riza Hawkeye". No middle names and definitely, no "Davis" surname.

That name makes no sense at all, since her mother was a "Grumman" and her father was a "Hawkeye" (Berthold Hawkeye, according to FMA:B ). Moreover, as we have stated before many times, Riza is not a shortname for Elizabeth: Elizabeth is merely a codename given to Riza to be used in secret missions, just like Havoc's is Jennifer and Fuery's is Kate.

There're few people in FMA who actually have a middle name. Basically, is just the Armstrongs (Alex Louis Armstrong, Olivier Mila Armstrong and so forth) and Zolf J. Kimbley. (which, btw we don't even know what the "J" stands for. Not even Arakawa. She even made a joke about it in a omake. lol)

So... could you all kindly help us by being careful when including some "FMA info" on your post, and try not to present some unconfirmed/unsubstantiated/wishful-thinking-by-fan/taken-from-fanfic kind of info as if that is a canon FMA info... please? laugh.gif Thanks!! biggrin.gif

Now I need to read this "Apotheosis". I liked the "Kain Fuery Gets a Clue." The last lines were the best.

@Irena nice videos! I've already known the first two, it's funny how we all found the same things. And the cosplay video is sheer win of creative force!

"Kain Fuery Gets A Clue" is short, funny and.... sweet. I've read "Apotheosis" some time ago. Very good piece of writing and it pictures the character in its own way and we get some character development on top of it. I liked it, even if it was based on the movie, it was still great. Didn't like the statue thing in the end - were I Riza I would turn in my grave to become a heroic looking 'beloved' set in stone. The feeling presented were so real and intense... you have to care about the characters. And... don't read readers' comments untill you're done, it *might* spoil the end to you.

Anyway, here's one of my favourites: Sandcastle (little fluff describing Roy's vacation... on the beach, assuming Amestris has a coast area)

Wow, that fannon Riza name is...weird. (Davis??) O.o

I have no FMA merchandise at ALL. xD I'm a quieter sort of fan...I'd rather write fanfiction and make AMVs than cosplay or buy action-figures. biggrin.gif

And speaking of making AMVs...there's this song I positively adore, and I think it's perfect for Roy and Riza. The lyrics are beautiful. I'd love to make an AMV out of it myself, but alas, I have no episode material to work with. Would anyone else be willing to take the request? Here's the song, if you're interested.

The figures are the same, but the Hayates are not the correct ones (from that picture).

The Hayate with Riza should look scared, while the Hayate with Roy should look happy/relaxed.

I couldn't even buy the first series dvds, they were extortionately priced! I only have a few volumes and that was when I bought them while they were in the sales haha. £20 for 4 episodes is a lot of money. So I just have the volumes I like.

I'd love to buy the manga volumes too but there's nowhere near me that sells them, so it's a bit of a pain.

I just finished Apotheosis, and I gotta say that was the most mixed I've been about a 'sad' ending. I thought I wouldn't like it because it was set in the anime-verse, but, surprise - I have it bookmarked to read again, which I almost never do with fanfiction (as I am not a huge fan).

I love the Hawkeye and Mustang merchandise (and the poor Hayates!). XD

I think the reason I was so upset about it was because I totally didn't see it coming... I'd completely missed all the hints at what Roy was doing in preparation for his absence, so when the final chapters came, I was totally in shock. Oh man, I'm going to read it again at one point and wonder how I missed it! I loved the fact that Havoc was a central character, that man doesn't get enough love XD.

I am so confused. Did Riza Hawkeye die?

@Forgiven: Um... spoiler tag, maybe? I was trying my best to keep the story under wraps for people who have yet to read it. sad.gif :/ And I'm not saying yes or no to the question lol. tongue.gif

Really? I pretty much figured out what he was doing, but it still didn't change the impact of when it happened. I did love the focus on the rest of the team, as it's pretty clear that Roy really does care about his team on equal terms.

Oh! Forgot about that. Yeah, the way he was written made him so much more loveable and I really loved the close friendship between him and Hawkeye, with him trying to protect her and telling her he loved her [non-sexually/romantically] when she was going in after Mustang. Seriously, I love him 100x more after reading this story, even though in the manga the characters are less emotional and open about their feelings toward each other.

Does anybody have any other really good Royai fanfictions? I usually HATE them, but Apotheosis makes me desperate to find some more really good ones (no overly romantic/sexual ones, please, and if possible the characters not overly OOC).

I kinda saw that something was going on with the dinner and all, but I was still caught off guard when Havoc discovered what Mustang was really doing. I'm gonna have to go back and look for clues as well.

Oh, and Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

lol yep, I mean I knew something was up, but I just couldn't work out what it was. I always miss important things in stories, it never fails. laugh.gif Also, I don't think I've ever read a fic where both have been killed off, much less one of them, it was a shock to the system! god knows how I'd handle something like that happening in the manga... geez.

@DistantBlue: Yep, that's what I loved about it too, and I'm going back to read for clues as well haha. I kind of thought that Riza would've reacted a lot more when she found out what he was upto, though. Yeah, Havoc's shock made you feel it all the more, right?


Well I'm away for a few days so i won't have internet, byebye!

Well since it seems that a few people are now reading the heavy and depressing "Apotheosis", here's a few light-hearted fics that I dragged out of my favorites on ff.net!

Bright, Unfinished Sky
These next two are hilarious, though the second one doesn't have Roy in it.
Roy Mustang, the Poet
Dinner a Deux

I only have time to read short fics most of the time, so if you're looking for something longer, sorry. I myself really want to write a longer story... but I don't have plot ideas, nor am I able to stick to one story for very long. But I really want to give it a shot one day!

Wow, that is an amazing scan! I hope for a bigger scan sometime!! I'm sure it will show up at some point.

Oh, god. It's still very possible - just because Hawkeye survived 101 doesn't mean they both won't end up biting the dust later, as repetitive as it may be. Can't even think about it.

I loved that Havoc was the voice of the story, and you could really feel his pain and understand him as someone outside the relationship but still extremely close to both Mustang and Hawkeye. Just loved it, and loved the story.

Thanks for the links! I think I'll only look at the non-humorous one.

I actually am so tempted to write a story after Apotheosis, but would never be able to come up with a decent plot and don't have enough writing skill. I've been ranked highly in both writing and reading for my age group (I'm in eighth grade and going to be 14 next Sunday), but don't have nearly enough experience. Maybe one day, LOL.

Wow, that's interesting. Don't really get why Olivier is in it, and I am mixed about the type of 'fanservice' that we see here of Hawkeye and have been seeing, but overall its a very cool scan. Thanks for the link rzerox21xx!
