I actually love the line. I just found it so sweet and moving when I read it, with her crying and shaking and saying it to him and that being what finally brings him back.

Oh well, I can still hold out hope for the dub.
Thalogens
Yes, I don't see Riza following Roy all the way to /death/ (though I would love to see something like that happen, to be honest); they've both developed immensely in the past few chapters - I think that if the other died or something, the other would probably live on for both of them.

Personally, I loved that line, even if it didn't fit her character 100%. It was still sweet to see Riza say something so blunt but perfectly conveyed her heartbreak. It was poetickey D':

Its strange that for whats lasted us over a year is only a few hours for them...


-and LOL at Fuhrer Hawkeye. That would be a twist and a half.

Haha after I wrote that I actually thought about it, and I think she'd be a kickass Fuhrer. laugh.gif Riza and Olivia should totally run the country together.

^They'd be the ultimate power team.

Actually, both that line and the 'idea' of Riza living only because of Roy seems rather childish, for me. And OOC.

She's too strong, spartan like woman to be such 'lame loving' a woman. I get it that it might look sweet in a certain context, but in Riza it just seems too melodramatic. And it actually takes away the heaviness of the whole situation and their relationship, since it starts sounding more like a 'soap opera' rather than a real living situation.
It may have a great appeal for romantic teen girls, but, Riza is NOT a 'romantic teen girl' and has lived through just too much to act like one.

Sometimes I feel as if Royai gets a little "childish-like" through interpretations of some Royai fans. And we tend to forget that Roy is 30, Riza is at LEAST my age. And, let me tell ya: I wouldn't be all like "I can't live without you", not because I don't like romance, but because I don't think that's romantic in the least (If my boyfriend ever said something like that to me, I would reply "Well, that's sad!"). For me, that's more of a depreciation of oneself than actually loving somebody. It's actually a more selfish act than an altruistic one.

And really, love and relationship is SO much better without the whole "butterfly in the belly" and "I'll die without you" kind of thing, it's even bizarre! Once you get part the whole puppy love, overly passionate romance!
You finally get to really connect to a person in a very profound way, cause you're not always worrying about if that person loves you back, or if he cares about you and all those things that usually make a bigger drama out of a relationship than there's actually is.
You don't truly know a person when you're still in that passion phase, you only get to KNOW them after the "initial passion" has passed.

And I can tell that first hand, cause I've been there. XD Contrary to popular believe, love can only grow when there's no passion clouding your judgments.

^ all this smile.gif


And regarding Olivier and Riza running the country.. HECK YES. Izumi would help them too of course. That would be the greatest country ever.
jacksparrow589
Turdaewen--Your eloquence and insight never fail to make me see reason. (And I can be a highly irrational creature--I'm a teenage girl!)

Regarding the Riza/Olivier/Izumi triumvirate: Wasn't there an omake where Olivier went all, "Miniskirts? Will they make things run better? I approve!" and everyone deserted Mustang? This whole conversation just put me in mind of that.

Yes, yes there was. I'd forgotten until you mentioned it.

Turdaewen thanks you for so eloquently fleshing out what made that line OOC.
Turdaewen
Thanx! ^^

I always tend to think of Royai in certain occasions that might not look that much romantic, but, deep inside, they are. Just like when Bradley was about to get killed and he said he wouldn't have any last words for his wife, because she was the wife of a king and didn't NEED to hear anything. It reminded me of the book "Gates of Fire" (that tells the story of the 300 spartans in the Termopilae battle). It's the quote of a spartan woman, Paraleia, whose husband and son have been called to die in that battle:

QUOTE
This forenoon I received a summons from the king. I went at once, presenting myself within the courtyard of his home. I was early; Leonidas had not arrived from his business of organizing the march-out. His queen, Gorgo, however, awaited upon a bench in the shade of a plane tree, apparently intentionally. She welcomed me and bade me sit. We were alone, absent all servants and attendants.

"You are wondering, Paraleia," she began, "why my husband has sent for you. I will tell you. He wishes to address your heart, and what he imagines must be your feelings of injustice at being singled out, so to speak, to bear a double grief. He is keenly aware that in selecting for the Three Hundred both Olympieus and Alexandros he has robbed you twice, of son as well as husband, leaving only the babe Olympieus to carry on your line. He will speak to this when he comes. But first, I must confide in you from my own heart, woman-to-woman."

She is quite young, our queen, and looked tall and lovely, though in that shadowed light exceedingly grave.

"I have been daughter of one king and now wife to another," Gorgo said. "Women envy my station but few grasp its stern obligations. A queen may not be a woman as others. She may not possess her husband or children as other wives and mothers, but may hold them only in stewardship to her nation. She serves them, the hearts of her countrymen, not her own or her family’s. Now you too, Paraleia, are summoned to this stern sisterhood. You must take your place at my shoulder in sorrow. This is women’s trial and triumph, ordained by God: to abide with pain, to endure grief, to bear up beneath sorrow’s yoke and thus to endow others with courage."

Hearing these words of the queen, I confess to you, that my hands trembled so that I feared I may not command them—not alone with the foreknowledge of grief but of rage as well, blind bitter fury at Leonidas and the heartlessness with which he decanted the double measure of sorrow into my cup. Why me? my heart cried in anger. I stood upon the moment of giving voice to this outrage when the sound of the gate opening came from the outer court, and in a moment Leonidas himself entered. He had just come from the marshaling ground and bore his dusty footgear in his hand.

Perceiving his lady and myself in intimate converse, he divined at once the subject of our intercourse.
With apology for his tardiness he sat, thanking me for presenting myself so punctually and inquiring after my ailing father and others of our family. Though it was plain he bore a thousand burdens of the army and the state, not excepting the prescience of his own imminent death and the bereavement of his beloved wife and children, yet as he took his bench he dismissed all from his mind and addressed himself to me alone with undiverted attention.

"Do you hate me, lady?" These were his initial words. "Were I you, I would. My hands would now be trembling with fury hard-suppressed." He cleared a space upon his bench. "Come, daughter. Sit here beside me,"

I obeyed. The lady Gorgo moved subtly closer upon her settle. I could smell the king’s sweat of his exercise and feel the warmth of his flesh beside me as, when a girl, I had known my own father’s when he had called me to his counsel. Again the heart’s surfeit of grief and anger threatened to take me out of hand. I fought this back with all my force.

"The city speculates and guesses," Leonidas resumed, "as to why I elected those I did to the Three Hundred. Was it for their prowess as individual men-at-arms? How could this be, when among champions such as Polynikes, Dienekes, Al-pheus and Maron I nominated as well unblooded youths such as Ariston and your own Alexandros? Perhaps, the city sup’ poses, I divined some subtle alchemy of this unique aggregation. Maybe I was bribed, or paying back favors. I will never tell the city why I appointed these three hundred. I will never tell the Three Hundred themselves. But I now tell you.
I chose them not for their own valor, lady, but for that of their women."

At these words of the king a cry of anguish escaped my breast, as I understood before he spoke what further he would now say. I felt his hand about my shoulder, comforting me. "Greece stands now upon her most perilous hour. If she saves herself, it will not be at the Gates (death alone awaits us and our allies there) but later, in battles yet to come, by land and sea. Then Greece, if the gods will it, will preserve herself. Do you understand this, lady? Well. Now listen."
When the battle is over, when the Three Hundred have gone down to death, then will all Greece look to the Spartans, to see how they bear it. But who, lady, who will the Spartans look to? To you. To you and the other wives and mothers, sisters and daughters of the fallen.
If they behold your hearts riven and broken with grief, they, too, will break. And Greece will break with them. But if you bear up, dry-eyed, not alone enduring your loss but seizing it with contempt for its agony and embracing it as the honor that it is in truth, then Sparta will stand. And all Hellas will stand behind her."

"Why have I nominated you, lady, to bear up beneath this most terrible of trials, you and your sisters of the Three Hundred? Because you can."

From my lips sprang these words, reproving the king: "And is this the reward of women’s virtue, Leonidas? To be afflicted twice over, and bear a double grief?"

On this instant the queen Gorgo reached for me, to offer succor. Leonidas held her back. Instead, yet securing my shoulder within the grasp of his warm arm, he addressed my outburst of anguish.

"My wife reaches for you, Paraleia, to impart by her touch intelligence of the burden she has borne without plaint all her life. This has ever been denied her, to be simply bride to Leonidas, but always she must be wife to Lakedaemon. This now is your role as well, lady. No longer may you be wife to Olympieus or mother to Alexandros, but must serve as wife and mother of our nation. You and your sisters of the Three Hundred are the mothers now of all Greece, and of freedom itself. This is stern duty, Paraleia, to which I have called my own beloved wife, the mother of my children, and have now as well summoned you. Tell me, lady. Was I wrong?"


Sorry for the long quote, but I just LOVE this part of the book. It gives away much of the 'way of thinking' behind people who live from war, soldiers, kings... It may seem sad, but it's also a very close way to the views Arakawa sometimes portrays.

Hy I'm new here.

What would it like if Roy will use Riza's tattoo as a circle to fight ? I'd love to see that!^_^
jacksparrow589
Welcome, Bett Bett! Always glad to have new people! smile.gif

I doubt that Roy could use Riza's circle now. First off, that's pretty much the reason it was burned (well, so that the secret couldn't be stolen and misued). Second, we had a bit of a discussion a while back about how Roy in all likelihood needs to be able to see to use flame alchemy. Roy is pretty much useless now unless he busts out some crazy awesome power that he got in exchange for seeing the Truth. That, I would like to see.

Turdaewen--...Wow. Point made.

I noticed the difference between the raw and scanlation too.
But Turdaewen, while I agree with your point about Royai being too kiddified or idealized, especially in fandom, I don't think it was too OOC or melodramatic.
I mean, right after that when Roy asks her what she'd do if he shot him, she still answered that she had no intention to keep living, right?
By that point in the storyline, I don't think that line was much out of place anymore. I kind of liked it better than the original smile.gif
But you made your point well, and I love the example. You have great thoughts!
And I agree with the "way of life" concept. ^^ I think it's much more deep and meaningful than the emotional rollercoaster of ideal teen love.

But going back to that scene... I wish they'd put a bit more effort into her reaction after he cries out and explodes something random to the side in despair. I know with a new episode every week we can't expect that much, but it was almost laughable because she turned to look at the explosion, then turned back to look at him with this really "..." expression on her face that just seemed... funny huh.gif

I know what you mean, but I think the difference lies in WHY she had no intention to keep living. Was it because of Roy? Not exactly.

She made a promise and constructed her life around the idea of Roy's dream of protecting Amestris and changing it, right? She decided to dedicate her life to being the guardian of the Flame Alchemy and Roy's 'conscience", in ways of guaranteeing he would become what he was meant to become.
So it's not a romantic "can't live without you" thing, but a lot more of a "it wouldn't have no meaning to keep on living if THE DREAM would not have any way of making itself come true, anymore", you see? Because Riza LIVES for the ideal of that dream, her life is solely dedicated to make Amestris become a peaceful place. If not for herself, for others.

So Riza would kill herself not because she couldn't stand being without Roy, but to prevent the 'mistake' from ever happening again. It was about depriving the world of the Flame Alchemy at the realization that that alchemy would be too prejudicial to the world. It has little to do with the 'romantic attachment' between herself. It has to do with Principles. The Principle that is more important to give conditions to Amestris to ride itself from the 'enslavement' it's in, than keep on living.

For me, Roy and Riza's 'romance' goes without saying. There's no need to 'put scenes of motivations' to prove it. It's there. The mere idea that she's a sort of "guardian and conscience" to him is enough to define her as somewhat his "Queen" because that's exactly the 'part' of the Queen. To be the one who listens, who nurtures, who comforts in moments of distress, and than advises, gives reason, wisdom, a clearer perspective of reality... as is it so well putted in King Arthur's tales, the one who "Holds the sword by the blade" (which means she will determine the 'direction' in which the Knight has to point and use his sword), the one who GIVES the Knight his sword and "send him to battle".



And welcome to the Royai thread, Bett Bett!! Hope you like it, here! XD

Welcome to the Royai forums Brett Bett!

@Tian Ai: My computer won;t let me see the Royai comics you posted sad.gif

@Turdaewen: You always have excellent points. Are you a writer cause your points are always concise and eloquent. But I loved the way you explained how true love is not about the "butterflies" in the stomach. I also believe that couples who have to hang all over each other are actually insecure. In my opinion it is like couples who have to hang all over each other believe that their partner cannot be trusted and will leave them. Or they don't know how to love themselves so they have to cling constantly to someone else.

Sometimes I am legit jealous of how perfect Roy and Riza's love is. I mean it has such a deep meaning, and they are fictional characters. I want something like that. But of course being 20 means that guys my age are not usually that serious about love.
shanryelric
is this just my feeling but does BONES studio.. like... ngg, gave us 2 royai fanservice that look like that it's out from Chocolate Queen's doujinshi?
1. when riza shows her back to Roy (eps. 54) and
2. the nurse outfit. it's in the game PSP Yakusoku Hi e

only wondering.. hmm

Tell me about it. rolleyes.gif Although to be honest, it's very rare to find a young man who's interested in the long haul... I do sometimes feel like love is something people have to be mature enough for, not just for men, women too obviously.

The mere idea that she's a sort of "guardian and conscience" to him is enough to define her as somewhat his "Queen" because that's exactly the 'part' of the Queen. To be the one who listens, who nurtures, who comforts in moments of distress, and than advises, gives reason, wisdom, a clearer perspective of reality... as is it so well putted in King Arthur's tales, the one who "Holds the sword by the blade" (which means she will determine the 'direction' in which the Knight has to point and use his sword), the one who GIVES the Knight his sword and "send him to battle".



Good points there! I agree~~


I wanted just to share that while watching the chapter animated (not about Riza's line or reason of killing herself but about Roy's reaction)
I somehow found Riza's words like the classical- among Arakawa's characters- and simple line (hide line) I am waiting for you...
To start for Roy thought that if he had to die in exchange of his revange, it was a fair payment... and whenever one of the characters think about that or something similar, the only and only thing that brings them back is that that reaction is selfish and they have to live because there are others waiting for you~~~
simple + clear + very fitting xD

**runs away to refresh many pages**



Michiyo-
Instead of studying While waiting for chapter 107 I tried to make some animated gifs from ep. 54:







And 2 colored icons:




They're free to use, hope you like them. happy.gif
FailToImpress
^Very nice! I really like the coloured ones. smile.gif

I can smell chapter 107 already, it's making me nervous. I don't care about spoilers, I WANT to know what happens!
amestris_star
The color page *____* Ahem... I shall calm down now tongue.gif Or at least try to biggrin.gif

Michiyo, those icons are lovely <3

@amestris_star - As long as you're trying, that's what counts! Heck, I'm not even going to try. Though, I do need to get some sleep.

@Michiyo~ -I especially like that last one with the creepy smiles. smile.gif

Isn't it 3 in the morning there? tongue.gif (I've gotten used to the time there now tongue.gif)

And... well trying... I'm staring at that color page and spazzing like an idiot... I burst out crying when I saw the group page... God, these last two chapters are gonna be tough on me +P
Causmicfire
Yes, it's 3 am in (not so sunny atm) California.

I wonder how much we'll see of Roy and Riza if they're the first color page of the chapter. Quite a bit I hope, especially since this is the last battle.
Michiyo-
Thanks guys! I'm sure there'll be lots of Roy & Riza moments in the new chapter, so I can make more icons.

@amestris star: You're not alone, I started crying too after seeing that group pic.

@Causmicfire: Happy Birthday! biggrin.gif

And Happy Birthday to our favourite mangaka, Hiromu Arakawa as well! biggrin.gif

I hope everyone gets shown in this chapter equally, which means more Roy and Riza. yay.

Happy Birthday Arakawa! She's really outdone herself with the announcement of the last 2 chapters' pages. I still can't believe it! smile.gif I can tell this is going to be an excruciating month after this chapter is out. I already know I'll be blubbering away when I come to read the last chapter, if I can even read through the tears! crybaby.gif
After being part of the fandom for 6+ years, I hope it doesn't just end here. smile.gif

Happy birthday, Causmicfire! (Jeez... EVERYONE's birthday is today!)

Michiyo---Great icons! I'm with Causmicfire: the double creepy smile is my favorite.

Oh, angsty Roy and Riza in the first pages... In color... SQUEE!
SneakyRuler
Michiyo: the last one's the best. I love their expressions. Plus, both Roy and Riza look so serious as of late....

Causmicfire: Happy birthday! You share your birthday with The Great Cow from Hokkaido, how awesome is that?

Suddenly I feel a little bit afraid of what will happen to Roy and Riza... too afraid to read the spoilers even.

Turdaewen
Nah, there's nothing bad about Roy and Riza in the spoilers. You can relax. XD
rinoaebastel
That page of Riza and Roy worried me a little...her speech .. is like something bad is going to happen but I don't want to think that. Nah she is goign to be fine. By the way when did she give up in those moments? I think I missed something

Causmicfire: happy birthday to you smile.gif
Thalogens
Happy Birthday, Causmicfire - what a great birthday present: Chapter 107

I think she means when she stopped fighting when she had her throat slashed, whereas compared to Roy, he still has the fight in him to not complain when being tossed around and is ready to be of any help. While being friggen blind. Spoiler tags just in case.
amestris_star
I'm actually interpreting it that this time round he is being her strength rather than the other way round smile.gif
spectator
so the spoiler for chapter 107 is up? I'm going to take a peek... tongue.gif
rinoaebastel
@Thalogens well.. but her injury was more serius...Im sure all people will be down a little if you have almost all your blood drained because a cut in the throath. Maybe she lost it again when Roy just dissapear to father's room? And then she watch him blind and asking her to fight while she did nothing not sure...Im still confused.

@amestris_star Oh interesting point of view
spectator
I've read the spoiler and I'm happy with it. Riza guiding Roy's fire... That's just so cool! I like them go all military. wink.gif

Oh! And HAPPY BIRTHDAY to you Causmicfire!
Katya Martin
Oh boy. (Spoiler pic): http://photo.xuite.net/peanuts1983/2530079/22.jpg

Given that it's a great huge blast, I think it's actually plausible... if he were doing his usual pinpoint stuff, I'd call BS. I am satisfied with this happy.gif

Once we get HQ of that one panel... definitely avataring and/or sigging it.

This is... well... how should I put it... ROYAI!
Alice in Nothingtown
that picture made my day biggrin.gif
amestris_star
What an epic Royai picture, seriously.
Causmicfire
Oddness that we actually got something we predicted, but love it!
rinoaebastel
I just can say yay! biggrin.gif:D:D
black~hayate
And I just can say nothing cause I'm so speechless biggrin.gif
Pure Royai! And... Riza, I know you're fighting together and stuff, but it really isn't necessary to put your beautiful delicate hand on Roy's chest while fighting evil guys~
Yeah, it kinda made my... week. Or month. I'm so happy. Let's discuss, Royai fans biggrin.gif
Katya Martin
^It's entirely necessary! She needs to keep her balance, she's all dizzy...

All I can really say is SO MUCH AWESOME.
Turdaewen
Happy Bday, Causmicfire!!!! \o/

And I'm still a little too happy to comment anything. XD
amestris_star
And we have something else here I think:
