RoyxRizaFan
...Me being a fan girl:

crazyanimefan
Aaaahhh, spazzing about the latest episode. Crowning moments of heartwarming right there. I rewound and rewatched the hug at least ten times now. <3 Absolutely wonderful.

As for Royai Day, expect me to make another contribution this year. FMA is ending and we just got awesome amounts of Royai in the anime, so I'm a pretty happy camper. I feel the creative juices running. If we have any specific plans, please let me know. biggrin.gif
rinoaebastel
now with all those cute things I am seriusly in the fangirl mode of: come on kiss her, kiss her, kiss her.
spectator
I'm also squeezing some idea for my fanfic's epilogue. laugh.gif I'm having a major writer block, so I'm procrastinating until June 11th. Keep my fingers crossed.
sidekick.kep37
Jeez, I haven't posted here in a while, XD

But that episode seriously made my day... or Memorial Day weekend at least cuz my window media player is still open and I've been rewatching 59 for a while. Though, I don't want to do it too much otherwise it'd lose it's touch.

... Nah! It's Royai! It'll never lose it's touch. tongue.gif

Anyways, just had to say I got a mad Royai overdose from this ep and have had a cheeky grin pasted on my face ever since. My brother's starting to get annoyed at it, but nothing can stop true love!

Regarding Royai Day/Week/Celebration thingy, I've never really contributed before (though I do plead guilty to lurking during last year's event), I'll go ahead and doodle up something myself. smile.gif

Really quick question though: You guys all know how 108 is roughly coming out around the time of the Royai Day Celebration right? And how apparently a good few of us (yes, including me. I'm joining those of you who are pledging to get the full impact of the chapter without the sudden spoilers) are going to be avoiding the forums while the RAW and spoilers are out? Well, what if something ridiculously huge happens pertaining to the best couple ever and those of us who aren't involved in the spoiler party come here for the celebration and get bombarded with spoiler tags and everyone's all "hip hip hooray" except for us few? I know they're "Tags" for a reason... but you... what if? o.O

I think I'm just being overly paranoid. Or something. IDK.
StormGoddess
Btw, isn't RoyAi Day celebrated in a separate thread? Since some of us are planning to stay away from spoilers I think it's safe to stick to that thread for the whole week. huh.gif

Oh I just realized it's already June 1 in my country (and in most countries in Asia). Only 10 days or less... wacko.gif
jacksparrow589
^We usually celebrate Royai Day on the thread, but sometimes, a separate thread is made afterward as a Royai Day album. (Or do we add to it as we go? I dunno. I'm just telling it like I remember it...)

Episode 59... *sighs* wub.gif My official favorite Royai episode now. I didn't think it would top Roy vs. Lust, and it doesn't by much, but, in my opinion, 59 is just sliiiiightly better. I love anything with Royai in it, though.

I'm fairly sure I will not have the strength to resist spoilers after my finals, so... how is this going to work? Shall I just try not to post anything 108-related here if I do give in, even if it's in spoiler tag form? I'm willing to attempt this if someone reminds me.
spectator
Too bad that I can't join you guys. I'm pretty much immune to spoiler tags. I read everything, spoiler or not.
Causmicfire
I am much too excited not to highlight those dark blocks of delicious spoilers. That being said, spoilers will probably even be in the spam central threads, so those trying to avoid them should probably just steer clear of the site until scanlations/translations are up, or strengthen the steel of their wills, because people who've been away for a while/are de-lurking for the finale will probably be celebrating/mourning even if us regulars agree not to put anything here.

The downfall of creating a RoyAi Festival thread is we can't post everything in one thread. There would have to be at least three threads(fanfiction, fanart, and graphics/amvs/mmvs each have different sub-forums) if we choose to do it that way. = more chaos and confusion.

Also, I'll compile a list of links for this years festival like the one I did last year.

I love that my sig still works for them even after so long. I'm glad I finally decided to de-lurk back in '07(took me a couple years, lol).
sidekick.kep37
Man, I feel bad that I've finally decided to de-lurk and join you guys now- at the end when everyone wants an opportunity to be heard before the big finale. It makes me feel kind of fake

Anywho, I'm just hoping the RAW comes out early so translators could have an ample amount of time to work on it and scanlations can be done before I miss the Royai festival. After all, since those rumors about the wild page count give a lot of us hope for the final chapter, it makes the translators we are so dependent upon kind of... overworked. So, I'm gonna say this in advance: thank you Tombow, Hisshouburaiken, and everyone else who contributed to translations happy.gif

I digress; as promised, I'll sketch something and upload it on to here, and I'll force myself to avoid the spoiler tags. Like spectator and causmicfire said, I'm a magnet to spoiler tags. I need to highlight them.

@causmicfire Whoa the link does still work XDD. I'm drawing inspiration from there tongue.gif
FMAobsessed
I love how there icons and gifs centering around the hug.

Is it just me or does it look like Roy is kissing the top of Riza's head? Or at least smelling her hair?

Roy:"Mmm...Riza's hair smells like honeysuckle."
Thalogens
Daamn, Royai day couldn't have come at a worse time for me, I'll be sitting allmy major GCSEs on that week :/
I won't be able to contribute anything at all, so Imma just big up my allready slightly Royai fanfics before I completely disappear.

Oh and I'm ADAMENT that this month I will not even LOOK at the forums until I have a direct link to a scanlated copy. If I do look at spoilers, it will probably result in the failure of all my GCSEs. Fun.
FailToImpress
I think it'd be a good idea to have a separate thread for the Royai week/day whatever it is we're doing, because of chapter 108.

If not I may just have to stay away from the forum for a while. Spoiler tags are too hard to resist!
Hagaren_4ever
^ They're ESPECIALLY hard to resist when the spoiler tags can't cover up the emoticons!
When you have something like this:
OMG that Royai moment was so awesome! Blah blah blah blah blah. wub.gif Blah blah blah! laugh.gif Blah blah blah blah... sad.gif


It's just so hard not to highlight! >_<
_Jelly
Hahah, it's WORSE when you WANT to see the tags and you're stuck on your phone or something tongue.gif Like if it's 2am and WHAT? Oh dear, the chapter's just come out... quick! Race to the thread! Quick, read it! Quic-- oh ... walls of black lines. -smashes fingers into touch screen in attempts to magically make them readable-

And yeah it's probably a better idea to wait for scanlations. I always find myself excited for the RAW, reading... or more like, looking at it then forgetting about it when the translations are released. Really, every month, I only read the chapter once and never look at it again. Fail Fullmetal Alchemist fan is right here gaiz.
shanryelric
OH MAN. next week, huh? so fast as 9 years has passed thru. sad.gif so sad.
11th of june = last chapter = ROYAI DAY = my last day of final exam.

yeaah. life would never be better without royai. TTATT
maybe I'll make a tart or sponge cake or something? hmm.

((anyway I'll never open the internet until next week, due to my test, so everybody please wish me luck sad.gif depressed girl is here. jaa~~))

Hey, why don't we make it a rule: NO EMOTICONS biggrin.gif
Then you can write whatever you like in the spoiler tags without seeing what kind of tone it's in... cause that just ruins the point of tags.

shanryelric: good luck!!!! you will do fine.
jacksparrow589
Haragen_4ever--Hmm... Now that you mention that, I might have to throw in some WAY random emoticons just to mess with anyone who hasn't read... Nah. I'd never do that.

FMAobsessed--Honeysuckle? Really? What sort of shampoo is she using and can I get some? That stuff's gotta be AMAZING if it can hold through all the recent events!

shanryelric and Thalogens--Good luck on your respective exams! I'm right there with you! (Except I have only two and they end on the 9th. So there. tongue.gif)
Aribelle
Oh man, already time for the Roayi festival again!! I need to crawl out of my hole and start being productive :3

I'm trying sooo hard not to look at the spoiler tags this time around! I want to be surprised for the last chapter. My hand will hover over them, and I'm like NO! MUST LOOK AWAY! I guess we'll see how strong my will power is in the coming days tongue.gif

And I agree with the no emoticons rule XD they're EVIL! Or do emoticons that the board doesn't convert, like =D :] =( etc...
Michiyo-
Yeah, let's make rules for next week's Royai festival:

- Comments and thoughts regarding the last chapter must be covered in spoiler tags. (This also includes comments such as "This chapter was awesome!", etc.)
- Don't use emoticons in the spoiler tags.
- Don't post links to pages of the chapters.
- Don't post pics, icons from the chapter until the scanlation is out.

Any additions?
This way those who will wait for the scanlation can come here and enjoy the Festival without being spoiled. happy.gif

Everyone who will have exams: Good luck! I'll also have one next Wednesday, I hope I'll pass.

And I hope I'll be able to finish my fanart for Royai Day. I already have a lineart, I just have to color it. But studying for my exams takes away my time. sad.gif
FailToImpress
Michiyo: I think those are fair rules! It will certainly make the wait a bit more bearable, I hate being teased. tongue.gif

The 11th June is a friday, which is when I work anyway. I tend to work most over the weekends so hopefully that will keep my mind off it!
spectator
No! Not the rules!!! tongue.gif I like to share! Especially sharing royai with all the royai hardcore fans! And I like to use emoticons! laugh.gif biggrin.gif rolleyes.gif
jacksparrow589
I can agree to those rules. Just expect a few entirely blacked-out posts from me. tongue.gif

So those will hold until... when? When the chapter has been fully scanned? Translated? Scanlations have been released? And by whom?

Jeez, I'm getting so excited! And nervous, too--I don't think anything bad will happen, at least, not to Roy and/or Riza, but I'm keeping my fingers crossed, anyway!
SneakyRuler
Oh yes! Thank you for being so considerate. Last chapter I endured spoiler-free was 102 (and I'm very glad for it as it was plain shocking for me) and I plan to try it this time to be completely unaware of what's to come.

So lets just say you write "here comes something for last chapter" and all the following content in black.
We can also agree on using T_T XD :-) and such instead of smileys

@spectator: I understand your enthusiasm for sharing your feelings with fellow Royai fans but it's just before the scanlation comes up. You can still discuss it with those who decide to follow spoilers or read the raw.

If need arises maybe there could be opened, just for a few days, a "spoiler royai thread"

@jacksparrow589 I'd say any scanlation HishouburaiKen translated or Tombow'a translation, whatever's first... but that's just the way I deal with new material so let's hear everybody out smile.gif
angelofsarcasm89
I say whoever find the chapter scanlated first comes in with a link and starts screaming that "HEY GUYS HERE IT IS PUT THIS IN YOUR EYE HOLES!" and then normal spoiler rules should apply.
Kaori Ayanami
We could make a list of "safe" emoticons. smile.gif
We would also need a "spoiler keeper" XD, just till it all gets spoiler-free.
Causmicfire


Rules for information regarding 108 content posted during the festival:
- Comments and thoughts regarding the last chapter must be covered in spoiler tags. (This also includes comments such as "This chapter was awesome!", etc.)
- Don't use emoticons in the spoiler tags. please refrain from emoticons even to say 108 = biggrin.gif As pointed out by Hagaren_4ever, you can just uncheck the box that enables emoticons in your post, and only the text form will show up.
Click to view attachment
- Don't post links to pages of the chapters.
- Don't post pics, icons from the chapter until the scanlation is out.

Please be respectful of those trying not to be spoiled for the end of FMA by following the rules above. If your contributions to the festival include spoilers from the past 2/3 chapter please give a spoiler warning. If the contribution has spoilers from chapter 108, then do not post it directly in the thread, but link to it with a warning of 108 spoilers.

I'll continue to post the above rules throughout the following weeks so new comers see them.
Thalogens
^I'd say the 'safe' emoticons are the ones that don't show up in spoiler tags. The yellow ones show up regardless of spoiler tags, and they hint the emotions of the final chapter. I'm guessing that some people (like me lol) don't want ANY hint for the last chapter. Not even a smiley face. By just adding noses :-) I think will stop the yellow smileys smile.gif
I sort of like the idea of a 'spoiler royai forum page thing' that could eventually be merged together with this topic.

The last time I wasn't spoiled was around... chapter 95. But that was totally my fault, I actively searched for spoilers tongue.gif
Hagaren_4ever
^ Actually, by un-checking the "Enable emoticons?" check box when you reply to a thread, you can make whatever face you want, like this:
:) :( :P
Thalogens
^Oh hah, I never noticed that before. Well. Do that then q:
Causmicfire
Thanks for pointing that out Hagaren_4ever, I've updated my post above with a screenshot to show where the enable emoticons box is.
Aribelle
Y-you can disable the emoticons? D: D: my world continues to expand \o/

Those rules sound good to me. I HAS AN EXCITED :D
spectator
Alright! For the sake of the rest of the Royai fans, I pledge to forget about this forum until the release of chapter 108. I hope...
Kale Mustang
Ah, another Royai Festival is upon us all... Though my main plan to contribute failed last year (got busy with work) to finish the playlist, at least I can say amestris_star and I got out our fic (which actually needs to be finished, but it's already almost done anyways).

This year though, not sure as I'll be busy with writing articles for the AX blog, but I'll be around as usual.

And yes, for the record, I did watch ep. 59 (after my cousin's wedding) with amestris_star so I did see the epic Royai-ness as well as my usual commentary with her. tongue.gif
SneakyRuler
@spectator Oh, you can still post here! There's gonna be a lot of other royai fans discussing the chapter so don't worry. You just have to use spoiler tags on everything chapter 108 related but everyone reading and discussing chapter will do the same wink.gif laugh.gif (enjoying smileys while I can)
hand-made-city
Oh boy.. this is a bit overboard, but okay.

I'll still be in the forums to talk about the chapter though, so I'll just use spoiler tags... I'd do it anyway...
jacksparrow589
Hah! Wrote my fic for the festivities! I couldn't come up with a good title, though, so I just used the theme. I can be so cheap sometimes. smile.gif
Aribelle
@jacksparrow, wow, you write fast haha.

I was going to write something but then I realized that I have no ideas. sleep.gif so I'm going to attempt something more graphics-y? Hopefully?

And yeah I mean there's no need to shun all those who want to talk spoilers XD just that if people want to approach the chapter with no preconceived notions whatsoever, even the tiniest little thing makes your brain start working in all crazy ways lol.
Hagaren_4ever
^ESPECIALLY in this thread. laugh.gif They should re-name this to be "HawkeyexRoy: The obsessing over the smallest things for the hell of it thread."
Aribelle
XD well...the thought process of a Royai fan is slightly different than that of a normal person tongue.gif
Causmicfire
It's not that we want to shun anyone chatting about spoilers, we just want to make sure spoilers are under proper tags.
rinoaebastel
ummm so Im not going able to put my epic AMV lol...well it will have to wait anyway for the episodie so blah. Mm I have to think In some draws and do them really fast and writting is not an option (Im in a writting crisis mmm I could traslate something but it's a multichapter so no xD) Sigh I need more hours in the day.

So the spoiler tag thing starts next week? (well I always use them so it's not problem with me). And the things for the festival we finaly put in here right?

Yep. I think it's fair on everyone. People can still talk about it as they like to, when people who are waiting for the full thing can (hopefully) hold off til then with nothing ruining it. biggrin.gif

The thing with me is I know I'll probably cry through reading this last chapter, or even spoilery bits of it, so I'd like to have the full thing to sit down and read on my own for one last time! I tend to check the site for spoilers at odd times, like before I'm just going to work... so it'll do me no good to start bubbling then. laugh.gif I just want to savour it, as I feel like I haven't really done that lately.
Hagaren_4ever
^ I just KNOW I'm gonna read the last page first. It's this nasty habit I have. Like when the last Harry Potter book came out I read the last page first... and we all know where THAT got me... dry.gif
FailToImpress
^Haha, I have such a bad habit of reading last pages of books.

Oh man, I feel like I'm being overly emotional with even the thought of this chapter. Is it just me? I just can't believe that I've been following fma all these years, since about 2004, and finally I'm going to have the ending to it all. I don't think I've ever been so worked up about an ending before, but then again no other story has gotten me so captivated.
Hagaren_4ever
I was upset because I was hoping for an entire "tying up loose ends/maybe an epilouge" chapter. But we still have the final battle to end AND see what happens with the brothers' bodies. Will there be enough room for the Royai ending we want?

(P.S Woohoo! My 500th comment!)
Forsaken Love
Greetings my fellow fans of royai, i come bearing crappy gifts biggrin.gif Heres a royai vid I made, nothing special but you guys might wanna have a looky http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bx6HtunFd2M

^ I allways thought fma needed an epilogue XD there are so many characters, so many loose ends to tie up, I'm wondering how it'll all come across in just one chapter, I'm sure there will be some scene with roy and riza, just hope it'll be good and keep us happy XD I have faith in Arakawa! haha
SneakyRuler
@Forsaken Love: Great AMV, I put it in my favs!

Oh, I'm glad I didn't read the last page of Harry Potter first... I don't know if I would be able to read the book knowing Harry's son will be named Albus Severus (put in spoiler tags just in case) laugh.gif

I feel like nothing that happens can get me in foul mood, don't remember being ever THAT optimistic. There's no way Roy or Riza or Hayate would be killed and Al gets his body back and Roy will become Fuhrer so I'm waiting for Arakawa-sensei to surprise me with even more good things taking place wink.gif

Considering how much stuff we wrote in between, including Royai stuff tongue.gif

And yep, we did, and we did AWWWW a lot when we saw the huggin' and cuddlin'... but strangely enough, didn't freak out too much when you-know-what happened. He can confirm that tongue.gif

And for the coming Royai fest... well... Kale will be busy and I'll be prolly too hyped with the final chapter sooooo... depends what happens and stuff... also, speaking of the final chapter, I think I'm gonna try and avoid spoilers this time round. Which will be difficult but I'll try not to read anything before the full and complete, and preferably translated thing is out.
crazyanimefan
I too am hopping onto the avoiding spoilers wagon. The end to FMA deserves to be reveled in with no strings attached. I can only hope for an epilogue, but there's so much that needs to be resolved.

Also, I loved the idea of the RoyAi playlist last year. Personally, music is one of my biggest motivators and inspirations. If no one is doing it, I can take over for this year. wink.gif
