Yay for fanart from pixiv!

So, dropping by with a couple drabbles...that will probably be expanded later, but not for a whilebecause I should be writing other things. Forgive Me, For I Have Sinned - Havoc interrupts Hawkeye's moment of peace.

Hi, GeMikanXIII! Maybe you can single-handedly revive this thread, which seems to have died somewhat with the end of the manga. *cries*

I can't read a lick of Japanese, or I'd translate, but that comic looks cute! I don't know if its verbal content is too "mature" for this thread, as I can't read it, but the second page made me do a double-take, so it might be prudent to at least edit your post and warn everyone else.
GeMikanXIII
Hi there! Nice to meet you.
"single-handedly" huh? rolleyes.gif
Not so confident about that...LOL... laugh.gif
But I do wanna keep this thread active though...it's just too cool to let it die...! T^T

OH YEAH! Thanks so much for REMINDING ME!!! That was close.
I was gonna put a warning there...but I totally forgot cause' I was doing something else that time and it skipped my mind..
(not very good with multi-tasking)
Again. Thank You! blush.gif
jacksparrow589
The last post before your first one was a week ago. I'd say you're pretty much single-handedly dragging people (at least, me) back to the thread. Not that I'm complaining--I miss it here!

Well, we do have the "temporary reflection thread for Royai fans" because some of us knew the ending before others, and I don't know how long we're to keep posting there for material related to chapter 108/the last 2 episodes of Brotherhood, but since this isn't spoilers or anything, it's okay to have it here unless a mod says otherwise. Just, like I said, add the warning. Which I see you did, so it should be good for now. (We all forget from time to time. Don't worry. smile.gif )
sidekick.kep37
Well, GetMixanIII. you've successful attracted another royai fan back to the thread. I would like to say that perhaps you are successfully single-handedly reviving this thread. smile.gif

And by the looks of that interesting comic, a pro-royai translator is bound to want to translate it. biggrin.gif

Um, I also come bearing gifts of the Royai kind! I did these a wallpapers about a week or two after 108 came out (don't worry no spoilers or anything of that kind), but the revival of this thread is more important than my self esteem issues having them humbly sit in my photoshop folder! >:D

My Royai Wallpaper

Only after I had finished the wallpapers and had set one of them to become my wallpaper, I realized that there was barely any room for my desktop icons. Silly me! :kneeslap:
Nagareboshi
@GeMikanXIII: If you'd be able to provide me with larger images, I'll translate it.


@Sidekick.kep37: The wallpapers are lovely!
ramencat
Hey all, just bought the VIZ release of manga volume 23, which includes Roy vs. Envy and an overload of Royai. Remember that line where Riza was talking about how she would kill herself after Roy died, and there was some debate over the translations? Well in the VIZ release, she says "After this battle is over, I will erase my life, along with he secret to flame alchemy that's led good men to madness." I think that encapsulates the whole idea quite well; Riza's primary reason is to stop the propagation of flame alchemy, but she references her bond with Roy as well. What do you guys think?

Yeah, I know, not the most hard-hitting news, but something has got to keep this thread alive!
Tombow
^ Thank you, Nagareboshi, and also thank you so much for all your help and great works on "Thank-you letters" thread!! ^^ If you can, please continue your help on "Thank-you letters" thread, and that would be awesomely appreciated! ^^ *HUGE hugs*


* Also, @sidekick.kep37 - I changed your image posting to a link only because my poor computer with ultra slow Net connection can not handle uploading a page with a big pic right now, and it's taking forever to upload this page with a big pic, and eventually it keeps timed-out, and hence changing yours to a link was the only way for me (and presumably other members with the ultra slow Net connection like mine) to upload this page. Hope you don't mind. ^^ (BTW, love that awesome wallpaper!! Thank you so much for sharing that with us!! ^^)

<I'm actually sick right now, but surfacing to post this since no other old time regular of this thread is posting to inform everyone about this ^^... >

First off, huge welcome to all members who have recently joined our board, and/or recently started posting on Royai thread!! biggrin.gif

@GeMikanXIII - Welcome to the Royai thread! ^^ And, no, that one has "no mature content" and it's quite safe to post here... in fact the translations of the whole chapter of that had been posted multiple times on this thread. ^^
That one is actually a portion of "Royai School Drama" series of comic we enjoyed a few years back, and if you can find it, I really recommend reading the whole chapter (there were several chapters, starting with the translations of the naming of all the characters in that comic, etc., but that one is probably the best chapter among them, IMO, and one of the "safe" ones to post on this thread.. and btw that one is the last 4 pages of that particular chapter) and not just reading that last 4 pages because that one is "building up" to that moment through the whole chapter.
And, of course that whole chapter WAS translated (by yours truly) and posted on this thread... if anyone can take time to find it. ^^


Which brings another great project for a Royai fan, if anyone is interested... if anyone is bored and having plenty of time, please go ahead and open a personal album in Member's Album portion of our Gallery, say, like "...'s Royai album" or something like that, then go through this thread and upload all the past "classic" pics and comics posted on this thread to that album (you have to first save those to your own computer in order to upload to your personal album in the Gallery)
We have a HUGE collection of awesome Royai stuff posted on this thread over the past several years, including many Royai "classic" pics and comics that come up again and again on this thread (brought by different posters at different times by finding it elsewhere) and if someone can gather it all on one album in his/her personal album in the Gallery, I think that would be a great service to other Roayai fans. smile.gif I would do it if I had time, but I have so much other board stuff that have to be taken care of before I could spend my available time for the board doing some "fun project" like that, and meantime I keep seeing members posting "I'm so bored and I have nothing to do..." ^^ So, if you are one of those with plenty of time on hand and have nothing to do, please spend a portion of that time and do something nice for other Royai fans by making an album of Royai pics and comics collection by going through this whole thread and uploading all the classics to that album. I bet other Royai fans would love you for that. smile.gif

She's usually the one to remind me of things..ah, good ol' grandma..^//^

@sidekick.kep37
Hi! hahhaha..I'm glad my one lil post attracted another die-hard Royai fan! I hope it keeps up so the thread stays alive...^^
and OMG!!! That is the most AWESOME Royai wallpaper I've seen in awhile!! O.O so epic!!!!

@Nagareboshi
Hello! I would love to give you larger images of it but sadly that's the best I could upload...I'm sorry..heheh.. blush.gif
Thank You! laugh.gif


@ramencat
Really? Well, that's definitely news for me...Thanks so much for sharing!! xD


@Tombow
WHOAH SERIOUSLY?! That's just only a portion? WOW..! I have got to find that post...even if I have to spend the whole week digging through the thread! Thank you so much!! laugh.gif biggrin.gif
jacksparrow589
Tombow--Gah! Just take a break and get well! If I had the time, I'd go spelunking through the thread and find all the pictures, but I'm rather busy this week. I still have almost two months of break left, though, so I might be able to get through a fair chunk of it when I'm not babysitting/helping my mom with day camp. I'll try, anyway.

ramencat--I'm impressed with VIZ's translations of that fight! They're pretty accurate when checked against Tombow's, too. No twisting it to make it more mushy than it is (which isn't much because it's more angsty than anything), and very much keeping the spirit of what's being said.

sidekick.kep37--Your wallpaper is excellent and I love it. happy.gif
RoyxRizaFan
I'm excited to buy volume 23, but haven't yet because I know if I do I'll stop reading my summer reading books *sigh* I'm excited for part two of Brotherhood coming on DVD, especially since Roy is on the cover! *cheer*

@ sidekick - LOOOVE your wallpaper!!

@ GeMikanXIII - Welcome and thank you for reviving the thread!

I have a full time job this summer, so I haven't had much time to visit forums. I was looking forward to doing the rereading project, but once again summer reading has prevented me *cries*

Anyhow, I still haven't forgotten about my favorite pairing (never will) and will hopefully have time to work on a fan fic I'm thinking of...a humorous one making fun of a certain someone's facial hair laugh.gif
FMAobsessed
I feel like I haven't been active on this site for a while. I wish I could help more. But work and then moving back into school in less than a month is taking up my time. If I can find time I would like to help with finding the Royai pictures. But I am afraid I can't promise anything : (

My brother bought me volume 23 and I was impressed with the translations. They were close to Tombow's. And it had the Royai angst feel to it. Now I can't wait to see how chapter 100/101 will be translated.

And finally hola GeMikanXIII
Raichi
I normally hate blondhair X blackhair relationships because they are so clishé, but because the characters have their history together and their relationship I adore RoyxRiza.
A Pierrot's Aria
^Wait...are you seriously suggesting that couples are/can be based on hair colour? Somehow, I don't think so; to me the very thought is pretty ludicrous (but I guess couples people put together go on even less nowadays!). But perhaps the 'Blond hair' and 'Black Hair' couples that you have seen and don't like means that it's just a coincidence that their hair are those particular colours. However, I'm glad to see that you know Roy and Riza go a lot deeper than that! laugh.gif
black~hayate
Guys. I kinda feel that my royai sensation is fading. Are you feeling the same? Is there something to do about it? I guess I need some fanarts or fanfics. Since FMA ended, it's not the same as it was... Right now I'm more into CeltyXShinra (Durarara!!)
A Pierrot's Aria
Personally, I still love RoyAi the same- while it's sad we won't see anymore interaction between the two since FMA has ended, it's still an amazing couple that'll live on through re-reading, disussion, fanfiction and so on and so forth. smile.gif But even if people's excitement about the couple does die down, they'll always have it in their hearts. biggrin.gif
ramencat
Naw, I kinda get where Hayate is coming from. Don't get me wrong, I still love Royai, but I've been seriously sidetracked by KonokaxSetsuna (Negima!)
A Pierrot's Aria
^I wasn't disputing what she was saying, and I understand her perfectly. I was just saying that even if the excitement dies down and you're into a new pairing, the pairing that you liked before will have a place in your heart. happy.gif Just because you're not excited about it anymore doesn't automatically mean you have to hate it. xD
RoyxRizaFan
And I can't find anything in the world to compare to RoyAi so I'm still stuck on it (though HaruhixTamaki in Ouran manga has always helped me out during RoyAi droughts and is keeping me distracted for now)

Here's a question that will make us remember why we love RoyAi! What's everyone's favorite subtle moment? I mean, we all can say our fave moment was "I love when Riza thought Roy was dead" or "when Roy hugged Riza" but it's more interesting to think of the little, subtle things that made us go "Aww" or showed the depth of their relationship.
black~hayate
Oh, I think we need questions like these. Seriously. It helps remember the awesomeness of the pairing.

I really liked when Roy suggested Riza to go fishing with him. It was in the phone call scene. I mean, it could have been some code or something. But in talks like these Roy can say everything flirty he wants and he won't get a slap xD

I also liked Roy being jealous over Barry. That's why I disliked when Bones cut it in the Anime.
sidekick.kep37
Ah, yes! We very much do need these kind of questions! smile.gif

Personally, my favorite moment was what happened in (EDIT, whoops) chapter 62 - the little chat the two of them had before Riza had to report to Bradley as his aide. An absolute "aww" moment for me, especially with the pained facial expressions Roy wore. I stared at the scene for ages before finally deciding to move on with the rest of the chapter. Ahh. Oh, and to boot, the "queen" and "Elizabeth" scene were both in that chapter too. But, I digress, their conversational exchange that happened earlier in 63 was definitely my favorite of the subtle moments.
jacksparrow589
I don't know if this counts as "subtle" so much as "quietly powerful", but the "It's going to rain" exchange has to be my favorite subtle moment. No shocking display of emotion, no swearing revenge, no trying to talk Roy out of it and no "you can come back to my apartment for some... ahem... comfort"; just Riza letting Roy grieve (and probably grieving, herself) in silence.
Causmicfire
I (like sidekick.kep37) personally love when she has to go back to his office because she "forgot" a few things. I also like when they have their lunch together and she gives him a message, because how many people would know the tapping of a cup signaled the start of a coded message unless they knew each other well enough.
DistantBlue
My favorite subtle moment..oh, jeez, its got to be the scene where Hawkeye comes back to collect her things. In Brotherhood, it was definitely the scene around episode 23-25 when they have that conversation in the car on the way to the safehouse.

And I also feel the excitement over Royai slowly dying, sadly....however, I am reading this BEYOND AMAZING fanfiction called "Quiet Crown" by mebh...those who have read it will understand what i mean. Seriously, it is just amazingly well written and thought out, and stays frightningly true to the characterizations of all the characters. Everytime I read it, I feel that sruge of Royai obsession flow through me again, ha ha.

Oh, fanart and Kitchan's capsummaries help keep the fandom alive for me as well. <3
RoyxRizaFan
I annoyed my sister for about a half an hour yesterday discussing what my favorite subtle moment may be, and while she chose the "I have someone I need to protect" scene, I decided with the phone scene that happened shortly after Riza's encounter with Pride. I just love how he knew something was wrong, even though she didnt' seem to be saying anything out of the ordinary, and he couldnt' even see how frazzled she was. I felt like it showed how well they knew one another that he was able to tell just from hearing her voice (not to mention her cute line after hanging up, something like, "How does he have such perfect timing?") And I'd be lying if I didn't say I've called my friends and opened the conversatoin by introducing myself as their "favorite flourist"

I also love the scene when he left Bradley's office and was frantically looking for her as well, just after he had found out about her transfer.
Michiyo-
It’s good to see that this thread is active again. I missed the Royai discussions! biggrin.gif

It’s hard to choose my favorite subtle Royai moment, because there are so many great moments between them. And that’s what I love in the pairing, they don’t need to be a romantic couple, but everyone knows that they’re very important to each other.
So, I decided that my favorite moment is the phone call in chapter 72. I (just like RoyxRizaFan) love that Roy immediately noticed that something wrong happened, even though he just heard Riza’s quiet sigh. And Roy’s call calmed down Riza, she knew that he’s always there for her. ^^

Oh, and I also like their little moment at the beginning of chapter 38, when Roy said “I’m glad you’re alive”. And Riza’s response: “I’m sorry to have worried you, sir.” That scene also shows how worried Roy was when Riza didn’t answer his calls.

And I found a new fanart by Chocolate Queen, so I thought I’ll post it here. smile.gif

<Quick translations: ~ T. >
Roy: Can I have a bite?
Riza: Yes, but I have another piece set aside for you, Colonel.
Roy: Nah, I like this one.

I'm reading that fanfiction too. I think it's incredible. I don't know how I'm going to survive until the next chapter. There was only a week between the two most recent chapters and it felt like a lifetime.

Ah, wow! This scene. This was also one of my favorite scenes for sure. I can't believe it slipped my mind though. Anyways, like with the scene in chapter 62, I stared at it for the longest time before going on. Once I had that volume in my hands, I would carry it with me everywhere just in case I got bored and needed something to smile at. And personally, I think Brotherhood did a fantastic job with the scene.

LOL and Roy's "freakout" after his talk with Bradley. That scene in the manga actually made me lol (mostly the way other people were staring at him and way he was posed).

I second that recommendation! If you haven't read it, you absolutely need to. No words can describe how brilliant that fanfiction is (...including the word 'brilliant', I suppose).

Seriously, it is just amazingly well written and thought out, and stays frightningly true to the characterizations of all the characters. Everytime I read it, I feel that sruge of Royai obsession flow through me again, ha ha.

Oh, fanart and Kitchan's capsummaries help keep the fandom alive for me as well. <3



I'm reading that fanfiction too. I think it's incredible. I don't know how I'm going to survive until the next chapter. There was only a week between the two most recent chapters and it felt like a lifetime.

I second that recommendation! If you haven't read it, you absolutely need to. No words can describe how brilliant that fanfiction is (...including the word 'brilliant', I suppose).


I completely agree! You all should read Quiet Crown!!!

Well, this is gonna be my first post in this thread...uhm...my most fav Royai moment, you ask??? Oh god, what a mean question...it is so hard to choose... I love ALL the Royai moments...

Well, I loved that scene where he yelled at her for loosing her will to live- you could see just how scared he was upon realizing that Riza had given up... and his "Thank you for being alive" later and her response to it...
Then the one where he frantically searched for her after finding out about her transfer, then the one where she came back to gather her things...
I also loved their "confession" in chapter 95, Beyond the Flames:

"Please, Colonel..don't go where I can't follow!"
[...]
"What will you do after I'm dead?"
"I have no desire to live a happy, carefree life all alone. After this battle is over, my body will leave this world together with the corpse of the Flame Alchemist"
"Unacceptable. I won't loose you, too."
[...]
"Lower your gun, lieutnant. I apologize"


The hug after Riza's throat had been cut open by those bastards...

And last but not least, the scene where he called her after her encounter with Pride. I loved how he immediatly realized that something was wrong- even without seeing her... smile.gif And Riza was right, he DOES have an awesome timing biggrin.gif

These are my favorites- I can't single out one scene! smile.gif

Oh, hi guys, by the way biggrin.gif

Ayla-- Hi! Glad to see yet another new face! Much as I love chapter 95 beyond most words, and I know it's pretty much Royai defined, I do have to say that, if you've read either Tombow's translation or Viz's English edition, you'll find that "Don't go where I can't follow" is a slightly more romanticized version of what was said. In all cases, Riza's imploring him not to sink to a level where he would commit animalistic revenge, but that particular "Don't go where I can't follow" version adds a little more... "classical" romance to the scene. The other translations (and the original) are done more in the spirit of not letting Roy ruin his dream more than ruining what he and Riza have, but I digress.... (But I'm not gonna lie--that particular translation still gets me every time. wub.gif )

Ah, the phone scene, Roy's freakout, the coded conversation, Riza "forgetting" things... they're all such great scenes! And all the big ones, and the hug--that just about made me die, I was so happy!

Hmmm... I'm gonna have to read "Quiet Crown" now.

aggree to every words.
me myself cannot decide which moment is my favorite!!! wahahaha, I love them all.

finally, this thread has awaken somehow.. it's somehow sad to see that the forum is not as active as it should be...
and no, My love for Royai is still the same, still so big biggrin.gif and nothing would be able to replace it. even I stop to read manga and/pr watch anime for a while so my 'path' regarding FMA and Royai won't die. biggrin.gif
well... but everything must come to its end anyway.
; A ;
hand-made-city
Heeeey, I come back from a week of vacation and find that the Royai thread is going strong again! biggrin.gif I'm dead to the world right now after a 12 hour drive... but I'll contribute to the discussion as much as I can. happy.gif

It's hard to choose just one, but if I had to choose a favorite subtle moment, it would either be the phone call after Riza's encounter with Pride, or when Roy finds out that his subordinates (mainly Riza) have been reassigned. He looked as though his world had ended when he found out Riza was assigned as Bradley's aide.
GeMikanXIII
Favorite subtle moment?? All of them are so kiwi I can't choose xD

But I guess it would have to be the one on chapter 95! The whole...
"Don't go where I can't follow" and
"I have no desire to live a happy, carefree life all alone. After this battle is over, my body will leave this world together with the corpse of the Flame Alchemist"

I was like screaming like a total fangirl! I know Arakawa-sensei didn't clearly say much about what kind of relationship they have...you know if it's (brother-sister, friend-friend, or romantic)
But when I read that line, the latter kinda came out strong! (for me anyways..LOL)
I mean she said that she doesn't have a desire to live a carefree life ALL ALONE right?
Cause' if you think about it "isn't she already alone? I mean she's single, she lives by herself (besides Hayate)...so without Roy she'll be alone? hmmm >xD.... and if she means alone without a friend that's impossible..she's got lots!" and I think it's safe to say that they aren't siblings. sleep.gif
Sorry if it's confusing...hope you can get what I'm saying...^^'

Oh, and I loved the start of episode 54...(you know the flashback of them at Ishbal) I literally held my breath when I watched it...and the music so didn't help either...it was breathtaking!! (Senju Akira rocks!)

I'll check out tombows tranlation...wait do you have a link to it? But even without the sentence "Don't go where I can't follow" I still think it's like a "confession" (I also thought that in the Anime and as far as I know, the tranlation there did indeed differ from the "classical romance" biggrin.gif Don't even know whether the first version I read of this chapter was like what I wrote in my last post... (as for now, I'm reading online scans, but I plan to buy all the volumes as soon as possible)) and it remains one of my most favourite scenes with them^^

Yes, you definitely have to read "Quiet Crown"!!! biggrin.gif

But here's an advice:
Prepare for angst and worry...
and for lots of crying on your part (I'd recommend a handkerchief^^)
And for having to trouble to express your true feelings in your reviews, because it's so brilliant (and that doesn't even come close to describing it, believe me^^)

And: prepare for the fact that it practically kills you waiting for the next chap biggrin.gif
I wish you fun reading! tongue.gif

EDIT!!!

@Michiyo: I love that pic...It's awesome^^
A Pierrot's Aria
Yeah, people should be weary of online scanlations, they come out with absolute nonsense sometimes. tongue.gif

In Viz's vol 23 the conversation goes:

Riza: Right now your actions aren't for the good of the country or even your own comrades! Cold-blooded hatred. That's what's driving you! Please, Colonel...You mustn't take that path.

Roy: If you want to shoot me, go ahead. What will you do after I'm dead?

Riza: I have no intention of living alone. After this battle is over...I will erase my life along with the secret to the Flame Alchemy that's led good men to madness.

The last line is also mistranslated by scanlation groups as dying with the Flame Alchemist- meaning Roy, but again, they're "romanticising" it. But I have to admit I was happy to read the fan translation too when the chapter first came out online. xD

Thank you so much, A Pierrot's Aria for the transcripts of Viz's official English translations! ^^

told you so, and kept telling you so every single time someone brought that incorrect fan-translation as a "proof" for his/her opinion on our board...
Oh, thank god, I can finally rest my crusade to correct the "incorrect." (From now on, the only thing I have to do is just show Viz's translation. What a relief. Thank you, Viz. sleep.gif )

Now if only we can repair the damage already done by this overly imaginative fan-writing that gave incorrect (in a sense that that was not in the original raw) characterization of Riza to zillions of FMA fans who now claim that "Riza is weak" "Riza is dependent of Roy" "Riza has no life of her own" etc., etc. partly/mostly based on some totally incorrect overly creative fan-translations done by some fan-translator. sad.gif

Please don't get me wrong... I like reading fan-creations done by FMA fans myself, and I know many FMA fans, including many Royai fans enjoy reading such creations, including some fan-made scanlations, and I'm glad they enjoy such. ^^ The only problem I have is when some fans believed that was what the raw said and kept insisting carrying on discussions on his/her opinions of Riza's character that was erroneously formed, based not on what's in the raw but on some fan-creations. smile.gif


-------

Cough, sorry for the interruption. Now please go back to the discussions on our favorite subtle Royai moments! happy.gif

Btw, my fav subtle Royai moments are:
"it's going to rain" and
"they have taken my queen"
(along with many other which I can't remember at the moment ^^)
jacksparrow589
Ayla--Here's the link to the chapter 95 thread, and the first post contains all the information: http://www.fullmetal-alchemist.com/forums/...t=0&start=0

Yeah, chapter 95 was a freaking minefield translation-wise, but even the more true-to-the-original versions still have Royai, even if it's not "smacking you across the face with a 2x4" obvious. Put probably a little too simply, it's not that Riza couldn't live without Roy, but rather that she couldn't live with herself if she were to stand by and let Roy fail and use flame alchemy for senseless revenge. At least, that's what I get from it. But this is FMA, where the characters are as real as they come, so nothing's totally black and white. (<--One of eighty bajillion reasons why I love Royai in particular, and FMA in general.)

(EDIT: Dang it! Tombow, you ninja'd me by 2 minutes on Riza not being weak! Oh well. That's why you're the amazing Tombow-sama, mod extrordinaire!)

I've started reading "Quiet Crown", and I'm going to be honest: I find it rather weird. Maybe I wasn't in the right mindset to be reading it when I started. I like it, I guess, but there's something about it I can't quite put my finger on... I'm definitely going to keep reading it, though! It has me very intrigued!
FMAobsessed
I think one of my favorite subtle Royai moments is when Riza was packing to leave to be the Fuhrer's assistant. And Royai uses the analogy of her being his "queen" I always liked the way he held the chess piece, like it was Riza he was going to be missing the most.

I will have to start reading Quiet Crown. I have been looking for some Royai fanfics. I am glad this thread is being active again. I was afraid my Royai love was starting to dwindle. But it isn't anymore now that there will be a new FMA side story coming in September, there may be some Royai in it. The excitment is back for me!
A Pierrot's Aria
@Tombow Haha! No worries, I'm glad the whole fiasco over translation can be put to rest. wink.gif

Just to be safe, I'm assuring everyone that my post has no spoiler content for the last chapter/episode. happy.gif

I actually forgot to mention my favourite subtle moments. I think they're definitely "it's going to rain today" and also the code scene, as well as the part where Riza gets her throat slit and she just gives him that look that tells him not to attempt transmutation. I love those parts the most because there are no explanations needed (or in some cases, no words needed at all) for the two to have a perfect understanding of each other.

And I hope the new Gaiden will have Roy and the gang in it, too. biggrin.gif
jacksparrow589
Okay, so, several posts back, Tombow suggested that someone create an album of all the Royai images that appear on this thread, and I agreed to take on that project.

So far, so good. I have about 30 images, but I'm electing to leave out scans from the chapters (we have those on other threads), screencaps from the episodes (again, other threads...) and those that, at the very beginning of this thread, had nothing to do with Royai. There's a lot of RizaxWinry, actually, but most of the links are broken, and, really, there are lots of broken links everywhere. Although, if they have other characters, as long as it's not... actively romantic (kissing or more involved), I'm including the pictures with other characters, even if just one of our favorite couple is in them.

I'm going to keep on working on this, and I hope to start the album after I comb through the first 100 pages or so. All I can say is, there's a LOT of great images, some that I've never seen before! This is gonna be great! smile.gif

(And I'm hoping for some Royai in the new gaiden, too!)
Amalthea
*wave* Hi, I'm new to this thread. I actually used to not be crazy about RoyxRiza, but it's been growing on me a lot lately. I really love the maturity and subtely between the two.

jacksparrow, I know this is an old picture, and a lot of you have probably seen it, but when I saw this it made me really happy (I love Victorian fashion for one). It's from a Roy/Riza art site, as is my avatar
jacksparrow589
Amalthea--Hi and welcome to the Royai thread! I've actually never seen that picture before! It's definitely going in! Thank you! smile.gif
A Pierrot's Aria
@Amalthea One of us...One of us...One of us.... Hello! And welcome to the thread; I'm glad you could join us! And thank you for sharing such a wonderful image! I've certainly never seen that one before. biggrin.gif

And thank you so much for collecting all the images to put into one place, jacksparrow589! That's very awesome of you! happy.gif
hand-made-city
Amalthea - welcome to the thread! This is by far my favorite thread on the board... XD Hope you enjoy it too.

I did not know about the new gaiden coming out... I've been out of the loop since my internet-less vacation... that is really exciting! It better have Royai in it!

jacksparrow589, wow good luck with the image gathering... this thread is huge so that must be a lot of work! It will be so nice to have our own gallery for Royai though, so thank you for working on that! <3
jacksparrow589
Thanks for the encouragement, all! I'm only through the first 50 pages of the thread, but I already have 352 pictures because some of the older members linked to photobucket albums specifically for Royai. I kind of hope I keep on running into the same ones a lot so I don't have do so much clicking. My poor laptop keyboard might die... ^^;

The nice thing is that there's a lot of chatter for about 10-20 pages, then a page or two of arts and comments... and it goes on like that.

I think I'm going to go set up that album now.

EDIT: Okay, quick update about 3 hours later: I'm through the first 100 pages, and boy, has this thread changed over the last ~6 years! I hardly recognize it anymore! Anyway, there are not very many more pictures from 51-100. I realized that while almost none of the pictures are presented in a way such that I can contact the artists for permission, I PM'd ScarMySoul to clarify a few issues so I don't cause trouble by putting up other people's work, so I won't be putting up any pictures in the album until I get that all sorted out. Just so you all know. The earlier users (from the first 100 pages) had a very unique solution: one created a communal photobucket account and gave the password out so others could contribute. I suppose if we can't put images up here for legal reasons, we might do something like that, where a blanket "I don't own any of this at all"-type disclaimer would work.

EDIT 2: This link was shared by POTOPHREAK in post 2938 on this thread: http://haganeaa.fc2web.com/newpage1.htm It's FMA ASCII art, by the look of it, with sections for a lot of the characters. It is AMAZING. Also, 300 pages (and 454 images) down... 1157 pages (and probably at least 500 more unique images) to go... ^^; Royai is one of the most involved fandoms ever, and I really wouldn't give it up for anything.
Michiyo-
@Amalthea: Welcome to the Royai thread, and thanks for sharing that fanart! It's also drawn by Chocolate Queen, and I love her works. ^^

@jacksparrow589: Thanks for collecting all Royai images from the thread! I was following this thread before joining the forum, and I also went back to read posts from years earlier, and I saw lots of awesome pics. It'll be great to have them in one place! biggrin.gif

As for the new gaiden: I really hope it'll be about Roy and Roy-tachi. Or a story full of Royai! ^^
FirstMoon
I was lurking in this thread and then I thought why not?
I...I don't know what to say now just,hello everyone laugh.gif

I learnt this place from Miss P,thanks to her rolleyes.gif

I wasn't shipping Royai from beginning because it was always a normal relationship seemed to me.But then I read the manga and....Now I'm a huge tard.

I posted a link to Amber's new entry on her DivArt page about this new interview by Arakawa with lots of chapter 108 spoiler staff to..
"chapter 108 and beyond" discussions for Royai fans thread.


I'm quite sure this upcoming side story will have Royaisomeness rolleyes.gif And I guess the new movie will be animated version of this side story,just a guess...

I sounded pathetic,sorry dry.gif
jacksparrow589
FirstMoon--Welcome, and thank you for sharing that interview! I read it, and it does make references to chapter 108 material, so I don't know if the mods will ask you to (re)move it, but at least you've warned us that there are spoilers there!

I actually hope that the new gaiden and the movie are separate stories... and that both have massive amounts of Royai, of course! I mean, why settle for the same moments over and over when you can have 2 different sets? biggrin.gif (Although, seeing my favorite moments from the manga animated was pretty awesome, I must say.) Honestly, though, as long as both are done well (and I know the gaiden will be, since it's Arakawa herself doing the work, right?) I'll be happy.

Time to get started on gathering pictures again...
Ayla
I'm glad that I now have the correct translation of this very "romantized" Royai moment in chap 95, thanks for the translation, Vic smile.gif And thanks for posting that translation, to A Pierrot's Aria and also thank you for the link jacksparrow589 And I was right, even with the correct translation (which I like even more, by the way tongue.gif), this stays one of my fav Royai moments...

...Shame on me!!! I actually forgot to mention these moments...and they DEFINITELY belong to my list of favourite moments!!! (actually, they belong to my MOST FAVOURITE moments) Thank's for reminding me, A Pierrot's Aria!!! Oh god, I can't believe I forgot to mention them... *shakes head in utter disbelief*

There's going to be a FMA side-story??? Awesome!!! I hope they also feature Roy and Riza..and Roy's team^^ Thanks for the information at FMAObsessed smile.gif And it's probably going to be animated? AWESOME!!! That just made my day^^

@Amalthea: Welcome to the thread (even though I'm a nebwie myself biggrin.gif). I'm glad the Royai-fandom is still growing^^ And thank you very much for the pic- I've never seen it before! I love it!!! Did you drew it? ^^

@jacksparrow589: Wow, thank you so much for creating an album for all Royai pics posted in this thread... I was really scared at the thought of browsing through the whole thread in search for the pics... You're a life saver! (Though, admittedly, my pc will probably crashdown from all the pics I'm probably going to be downloading- if that is allowed- XDD)
Can I be of any help to you? It seems kinda hard to me to do it all alone^^

@FirstMoon: thank you very much for that interview, I'm going to read it now smile.gif And welcome to the thread smile.gif
