Ayla--Thanks for the offer, but that would mean collecting pictures and somehow sending them to me, and that would probably cause both our computers to crash. ^^; I appreciate the sentiment, though.

Okay, I just found a Royai photobucket album with upwards of 400 images. Some of them will probably be ones I already have, but most of them look new. Time to get labeling... *dies*

You're welcome!

...Oh god... I wish you good luck *pats you on the shoulder encouragingly* You're awesome!!! *thumbsup*
jacksparrow589
The first 400 pages have been searched... 938 images (including repeats for originals and scanlations of certain doujinshi) have been collected... Whew! Time for a break! (And that photobucket album with 406 photos? I had none but about 20 of them...)

A lot of this artwork is absolutely amazing, and a small fraction of it is mildly disturbing. I can't wait 'til I get to our "Roy Mustang is dead sexy in a miniskirt" phase of the thread. Oh, the fun times! happy.gif
Tombow
^ jacksparrow589, you are my HERO! Thank you so much for making our new "our fav Royai pics" album!! happy.gif

@Amalthea - Ohhh, nice to see you on Royai thread! Over the years we had many interesting and rather "deep" discussions on many aspects of this interesting couple, and expecting more of those awesome discussions to come on this thread, and I would love to read your inputs on such future discussions on this thread!! ^^

@Ayla and FirstMoon and all other Royai fans who have just recently started posting on this thread... Big WELCOME to Royai thread!! happy.gif
This thread is one of the most active threads on our board, and the longest thread in the Character discussion forum. We periodically make various seasonal Royai Festivals that often including fanart contest, fanfic floods, etc, and we engage in many interesting discussions, as well as posting many many awesome Royai ics!! Hope you'll enjoy taking part on many of the awesome activities on this thread! ^^



And, a reminder to everyone...

We still have many many FMA fans who have not read FMA manga chapter 108 yet (yes, EVEN IN JAPAN many FMA manga fans haven't had a chance to read FMA chapter 108 yet!) and hundreds of such FMA fans visit our board and read our posts around the forums everyday, and many of such fans visit this Royai thread everyday since this is one of the most popularly viewed threads on our board, and many of them are NOT expecting to get spoiled of the content of the final chapter of FMA by doing so, since this thread WELCOMEs ANY Royai fans to enjoy this thread (whether silently lurking and reading or posting and joining the discussions) and not just Royai fans who had already read chapter 108. ..That is why we ask you guys to post FMA managa chapter 108 (final chapter) content ONLY on designated threads, and we highly appreciate your cooperation. smile.gif

For the links to some of such designated threads, please read this board announcement. Thank you! smile.gif
jacksparrow589
Oooooookay. So, the project is a-go, as you may or may not have gathered. No, I have not actually gotten anything up here, yet, HOWEVER: I did create my own photobucket, 'cause I kinda need it. jacksparrow589's Royai Album! (There are a few, ahem, somewhat mature pictures, but the pictures are either artfully cropped or done in such a way that what needs to be covered is covered.)

If y'all would maybe click it and take a look, tell me if things look okay, if something (the link, for instance) doesn't work, and I'll try to upload a few pictures here ASAP. Also, if you see pictures you recognize and you know who the original artist is, PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE let me know! I'd like to credit them and, if possible, contact them to make sure it's okay to use their work. Thank you! smile.gif

EDIT: Well, almost 4 hours later, it's almost 10PM in my timezone, and I need to get some sleep. Current count is up through the 500th page, and... more than 100 images. I finally got smart and started recording who drew what when it was a DA pic, but that'll be another task for another time, going back and getting what I can from the others. G'night, all! *falls asleep on keyboard*
sidekick.kep37
^ I checked out the album and it looks great. Went through all 400-big number something or other. Unfortunately, I didn't really recognize any of the artists and whatnot. And I think I saw some repeats, but it's all good since it makes me happier. Hahaha. Thanks for all the hard work. I myself felt daunted by the task, so it's good to see you took it upon yourself. smile.gif By the way, that link you handed out earlier was amazing. I can never be able to create little portraits using the symbols on a keyboard. Kudos to them.

Welcome to the thread, Amalthea, Ayla, and FirstMoon. Hope you guys stick around and find it nice here. smile.gif

As for the gaiden, I feel my hopes are getting raised so high up, I might die if Roy, Riza, and/or Royai are not in it. Kind of silly, really. But I wish that the gaiden has something to make us Royai fans content. My brain keeps churning out all these possibilities from Roy helping Riza unpack to a little episode with Grumman and his granddaughter, to other off the wall schemes that would probably only exist in fanworks. biggrin.gif
shanryelric
ow my... that's a really really hardwork.. AND IT'S TOTALLY AWESOME!! thanks a lot!! me go royai fangirling through the pictures biggrin.gif
jacksparrow589
sidekick--I totally wouldn't be surprised if there were a few repeats. I was mostly going "Do I have this? I think I do(n't)" just from memory when going through the 406-pic album. I'll go back and find them later. Thank you!

shanryelric--And there's more to come! Still 4 more years of Royai Day festivals, along with any other festivals and the usual "I'm bored so I'm going to post this" images. And I still can't get enough. smile.gif

Um, so, in the spirit of getting permission ('cause that's part of what I'm supposed to do) if any of you guys have your own Royai fanarts--ones that you drew yourselves--up here or on other sites (DeviantArt, etc.), could you PM me an answer as to whether I have permission to use them or not? I'd just like to keep a record, if at all possible, and I know at least some of you have submitted fanarts for recent Royai Days and such.

Now if only I could figure out how to actually upload pictures to my album here... *is totally lame and can't for the life of her figure it out* dry.gif

@JS - Here is how... hope this will help. ^^

---

To open a new member's album:
1. Go to our Gallery.
2. Click on Member's Gallery.
3. Click on NEW ALBUM at the top part of the page.

Album Name: jacksparrow589's Royai album (or something like that)
Album Description: This is a collection of our favorite Royai pics from Royai thread in our Character discussion forum, blah blah (or something to that effect)
Public? check.
Choose your sorting mode (you can change that later as well)
Then click on Create Album at the bottom.

---

Once the album is created... Here is how to upload the image to the Gallery:
(Note: Please go to the bottom left part of this forum page and make sure you are using Modern skin as your forum skin while uploading images to the Gallery.)

Go to your album in the Gallery, and...
1. Click on NEW IMAGE at the top
2. At near bottom of the page, click on Choose and choose the pic file to be uploaded from your computer.
3. Add the pic title to Caption, and any extra description in the big comment composing window (you can use it like making post in the forum)
4. You can ignore the copy right part for now and let the board add the default copy right note, and later you can edit as needed.
5. Click on Post Image at the bottom.
6. Usually, in other category in the Gallery, the uploaded image would NOT show up in the Gallery immediately, and you have to wait for a Mod to show up and display the image, but this is not so in member's album.
7. If you need to delete some pic that you uploaded, PM me and let me know (currently you can not delete the image you uploaded, although this will be likely to be changing soon.)


---

Post here or PM me if you run into any further problem. ^^
ETA: I see your album in the Gallery now. Well done! ^^
jacksparrow589
Tombow--THANK YOU SO MUCH! *hugs* You are amazing and I love you. That is all. smile.gif

Actually, it's not. Just finished going through the 700th page... almost to the 1/2 way mark, and I need to reiterate just how amazingly wonderful Tombow is--I've never read (let alone seen) the "Red Marker" doujin in its entirety until now. While I understand that it may have been watered down in some places, that's fine. It's a beautiful comic, and I'm glad I now have at least some idea of what's going on, and in order, too! (If you'd like to check it out before I get it uploaded to photobucket, go to post #10437 of this thread and start reading!)

Well, time to go make another attempt at screwing this up posting pictures! With any luck, I'll actually have success this time! (If not, it will be due solely to my inability to follow directions.)

EDIT: It works! No idea what the heck I was doing before, but it works now. *shrugs*

EDIT 2: 8/10/10 850 pages down... less than that to go.

EDIT 3: (Well, nobody's posting!) 8/11/10 5 PM PDT, and I just finished going through page 1000!

EDIT 4: ~9 PM PDT, page 1100
sidekick.kep37
^ Holy crap. I envy your ability to be able to do all that. I wouldn't have the patience or the... well, I was going to say time, but at the moment I have plenty of it... let's say determination. Yes. That. And I went through post #10437. Granted that took the longest time to get to since I was dumb enough to go by the fast-forward buttons. Hahaha. Anyways, here's a link to Tombow's translation of Red Marker (for anyone who was having trouble like silly me. Haha). I thought it was pretty cool myself. Thanks Tombow for translating that oh, so many years ago.
jacksparrow589
sidekick--Way ahead of you, but thank you none-the-less! happy.gif I'm actually going to be starting at post #16501 when I have some actual time to work today, but I'm babysitting from 8 AM (in about an hour) to... possibly 5 PM or later. It all depends. Either way, I should catch up to where we are in the next two days unless this thread explodes (pleaseohpleaseohpleaseNO!).

There are a whole bunch of interesting topics that some of the newer people here weren't around for, so I do have a question to get some discussion going (at the risk of the aforementioned thread explosion), so that my posts aren't just boring status updates: When during the year (specific date or just general period) do you think Roy and/or Riza's birthday(s) is/are? Why?

My answer: I think Roy was a mid-spring child, when everything is blooming and has possibilities. You know, hope for the future. (Okay, and you see a bunch of baby animals... but my mind is totally wandering into the gutter, so I'll stop there.)

I feel Riza would be a mid-to-late-summer kind of baby, when productivity is starting to come to a head. It's a time for work to get ready for fall and winter, but also a time to enjoy the beauty all around.
Kale Mustang
Wow. I disappear for days on end and we have jacksparrow589 undertaking a massive Royai pic album project. I honestly have a fair amount on my computer so I'm more than willing to share them with you. And of course, I have my pixiv account.

Also, hello all of you new members to the thread!

Birthdays: For Roy, I personally would be amused if he had a birthday in December (yes I'm aware that my own birthday is in December) since it'd be ironic if the Flame Alchemist shared his birthday with the winter solstice. tongue.gif

With Riza, I'm thinking either March or early June...no idea why though.
A Pierrot's Aria
I agree with Kale. biggrin.gif I could see Roy's birthday being in December (also not because my own is in December! tongue.gif) because it's not only ironic with it being in the winter solstice, but it's also fitting. As assuming he's a in the part of December which is Sagittarius, the associated element would be fire. laugh.gif

I was going to say that he should be a Sagittarius (not because I'm one as well) due to our element being fire and all... wink.gif
A Pierrot's Aria
^I'm also a Sagittarius tongue.gif But that so wasn't my reasoning, either. wink.gif

I'm not sure about Riza, though...

Perhaps it would be fitting to be in March because the element is water. She's always reminding Roy that he's useless in the rain! laugh.gif
(Joking...!)

But I could also see her in an Autumn month, not sure why though...
Kale Mustang
I guess for Riza, I'm fond of March because of it's usually when spring begins...as well as the fact that Aries is a fire element (but if born in early March, she'd be a water element due to Pisces).

June is good as if she's a Gemini, air's a nice element as well as a bit of a nod to the 'Hawk' as well. It's also the month of the summer equinox.
A Pierrot's Aria
Yeah, those really do seem to suit her. smile.gif

Talking in terms of elements, I'd say that either Earth or Air would fit Riza, so that would mean she would be Capricorn/Taurus or Gemini/Libra respectively. I say this because Earth and Air seem to compliment Fire much more...

Having said that, when bringing in compatibility of the actual star signs rather than just the elements, it seem to open a whole new can of worms. laugh.gif They contradict each other a lot! Which probably reinforces the idea that it's a load of twoddle, but it's still fun!
jacksparrow589
Kale--If there's one thing that would REALLY help, assuming you have this information to begin with (*singsong* and you know what happens when we assume things... */singsong*), it would be providing the artists/sources for the fanarts you recognize, because of permission and copyright and all that fun stuff that I have to wade through. Although if you note any arts you have that I don't have by the time I catch up to the end of this thread, you're certainly welcome to provide more. I know I wouldn't complain! (Well, not about how pretty it is, anyway...)

Anyway, you people and your horoscopes! (And your December birthdays--September's where it's at! tongue.gif) I agree--it'd be incredibly amusing if Roy were to have been born on/around the winter solstice, and/or if Riza were to have been born under a water sign. On the other hand, I can see the poetry to Roy being a fire sign and Riza being earth or air (but I tend to think air for reasons you guys already mentioned).

*sighs* Time to get back to work. I'll probably be caught up either late tonight or mid-day tomorrow, depending on how sidetracked I get, and I'll post what I have to my photobucket.

EDIT: Done through 1200, and that's all for tonight! (Apparently, there's this thing called a "life" that exists outside this site. I think I'm gonna go try it! tongue.gif )

@jacksparrow589
I'll take a look once I'm not on the train as navigating the album would be pretty hard to do at the moment (I'm posting from my phone currently).
jacksparrow589
I'M FINALLY CAUGHT UP! 1458 pages, 21870 posts, and probably 36 total hours of work later, I've hit the end of the thread! *keels over and dies from exhaustion*

But that's just the beginning; now comes the really fun part: I'm gathering permission from the members who have accounts on this site, and those who have already given their permission should see their art in the album here in the next few weeks. Those who haven't, I will be working on contacting.

Like I said earlier, if you go to the photobucket and recognize a fanart and can give me the artist's name/contact info, I would be forever in your debt! For a lot of the Japanese fanarts, the ever-gracious Tombow has cleared up what I'm allowed to do, I just need to go back and read it a few more times. ^^;

Also, if anybody with a DeviantArt account has the inclination to put me in contact with Royai artists there before I get an account, or even just let them know what's going on, I'd be forever in your debt! (Again...)

And if you have more fanart that I don't have that you want to post from a personal collection, I'd assume you can post it to here, but following all proper channels--linking back to the original artist's page if it's not you, no mature/offensive content and the like. If you're confused on the rules regarding this, the gallery and the site guides are excellent references and can answer all your basic questions. The mods are wonderfully helpful people if you have a question not already answered somewhere on fm-a.com. (Sorry for this, but I don't want to encourage "illegal" sharing. I'm very much doing this to cover my bases and not because I suspect any of you would knowingly break the rules.)

It's seriously been fun, though--reliving all the freak outs, deep (and not-so-deep) discussions, jealousy over mad art skillz and merchandise (Not gonna lie--Kale, I mostly mean you and your amazing collection wink.gif ), desperately seeking/avoiding spoilers, Royai festivals of all sorts, etc. from the past 6.something years. Here's to more of that for as long as we can keep it up! *raises glass*

(EDIT RESPONDING TO Kale's POST BELOW: Thank you for the info!)

D'aww thanks. Anyways, took a look at your gallery so far and the only one I recognize is from, which is what you're calling the icon avatars. Artist is neco527 and the website is here. The two other Japanese fanarts I don't recognize at all.
FirstMoon
Thanks for warm welcome everyone!
And also thanks for fixing me Tombow rolleyes.gif

As for topic,I always think Roy as Scorpio.He fits...damn much as character.But for Riza...Hmm I never thought about that.
Elisabeth Hawkeye
I wasn't here for a long time 'cause of my holiday in Croatia, but as I could found out GeMikanXIII posted links to one very old little story and want a translation of it, because the one she posted was in japanese. And as Tombow replyed on that, it'll be good if someone post here this one translated. And since there are at least two more little stories I've dicided to post them, cause I found them very long time ago, and still keep them on my pc. So it's easier, than try to find them through the whole this thread. But I wasn't sure if I can directly post images so there's a link to album happy.gif

Welcome back, Elisabeth Hawkeye! happy.gif And, thank you for the link to the album with the scanlations! ^^

That "Roy and Riza in the open market" one is one of my all time favorites. ^^

That's my all time favorite too, but it' such a shame it didn't really happend tongue.gif And that one started with Riza and Winry talk about being hard and cold it's beautiful too, especially at the part when Roy grabed Riza's hand happy.gif But that one is really very fanfictional and on the other hand not so unimaginable in real story f.e. the part (don't know in which episode it was) when Roy secretly sleeped in some archives room - that part will be practicly good for it biggrin.gif

oh wow... jacksparrow589 you just did an awesome work!!! great job biggrin.gif

Tombow--blush.gif Says the amazing mod who consistently works despite illness and slow net connections. I'm impotent USELESS when things don't go smoothly! (And yes, I did just revive that joke. I couldn't resist the temptation! And how fitting that it was your post that brought us that particular moment of fail/win.)

Elisabeth Hawkeye--Hey, I have those stories, too! (And they are SO going up. I love them to pieces! happy.gif)

shanryelric--Thanks! I couldn't have done it without all the art all the rest of you contributed!

On that note...

While I was babysitting last night, I got bored. Really, REALLY bored. So, I started drawing. Now, I've told you all I'm horrible at drawing. One exception to that: I can do these funky, chibi-type heads when so inclined. So, I made a couple FMA comics, since I was in that sort of mood. One was based off a discussion we had here somewhere way back there abut Bradley defeating Roy with paperwork, and the other stemmed from a discussion on this thread a bit more recently about how a Royai proposal (and marriage) would go. I need to scan them into my computer, but, even if it's only here, I'm pretty sure I'll put them up.

Just leaving a quick note to tell you that I haven't forgotten you guys wink.gif It's just that I wasn't feeling too good of late and wasn't really around the forum anyway wink.gif Hopefully I'll be a little more present smile.gif
jacksparrow589
amestris_star--I'd been wondering where you'd gone! It's good to see you back, and I hope you can check in more often! (Maybe we can entertain you back to feeling better!)

So, those comics I mentioned earlier... Here they are! (My handwriting's rather messy and our scanner isn't the best-quality thing in the world, so I suppose I'd better provide the text.)

"The Führer's Deal":
Bradley: All right, Mustang, you can have Lt. Hawkeye back.
Roy: OMG 4 realz?!
Bradley: Yes, IF...
Bradley:...You do ALL this paperwork in the next 24 hours. *evil laugh* (It's all single-spaced, double-sided, 1-page reports in. In ancient Xingese, font size 3. >:D)
Roy:*sobs* Lieutenant, why'd he have to take YOU? *head/desk*

"Not *Quite* Like I'd Planned":
Panel 1:
Roy: Lieutenant Hawkeye, I--no... I've been thinking, a--no... UGH...
Panel 2:
Roy: RIZA HAWKEYE, I LOVE YOU!
Panel 3:
Riza: *ahem*
Panel 4:
Riza: Did you really mean that, Sir?
Roy: *GULP* *nods*
Panel 5:
Riza: Good. Armstrong won't make a big production if he doesn't have to call of the wedding on Thursday.
Roy: THURSDAY?
Riza: *sigh* Yes, Thursday. Now do your paperwork or we'll spend our honeymoon HERE.
Panel 6:
Riza: Sir? Why are you on the floor? Didn't you hear what I just said? Sir...
(Roy's spirit)

Awww!! that's SUCH a cute comic ^^!!! Good job!

Hi
It my first post in this forum
I follow it topic for years but I never wrote for that my written english is very bad though my understanding is good

If I can be of help or contribute something, I it could entrust me of the edition of the translations that is done in the topic


Is here an example of my work



















And cleaned the scan and increased the quality

I wait to be of help in something to expand this biggrin.gif
jacksparrow589
Hello and welcome, scarlette! We're always glad to have new people! (And don't worry about your English; you're making an effort, and a great one at that, and that's all we can ask. Perhaps posting here might help you improve with time! happy.gif)

Those scans look very nice! You did an excellent job of cleaning them up! I can't think of anything else specifically in this thread that could use your work right now, but I'm sure there will be opportunities coming up, what with imaginations running wild at the somewhat open ending us Royai fans were given. I know I'm looking forward to seeing more of such quality work! smile.gif

Raichi--Thanks! smile.gif
Riza Ayano
scarlette-hey,nice doujinshi...I'm also new here..

hey guys..what do u think of my drawing..I put roy and riza (with their daughter,hihi).
My drawing is under my signature..
A Pierrot's Aria
^Welcome to the thread, Riza Ayano! happy.gif That's a really lovely drawing, they all look adorable! Especially Roy! laugh.gif

However, I'm thinking that it could be considered a spoiler for the end of the series, and if I'm thinking correctly, images from the end of the series aren't allowed to be posted in signatures or avatars. The mods will know more (I forget xD!) but I think you may need to show your picture to people who ask to see it over PM...
Tombow
^ Thank you, A Pierrot's Aria!! ^^

@jacksparrow589 - Nice job with comics! I like the cute drawing style! I enjoyed them very much!! biggrin.gif

@scarlette - Welcome to Royai thread! happy.gif Nice scanlation editing jobs! Good to have a talented scanlation editor on this thread! ^^
And, you are doing fine with your English. ^^ And, if you can't find how to say it in English, many of Spanish speaking posters on this thread and around the forums, like Kaori Ayanami, Edamame, and many others will probably be very happy to help you out. (They are all very nice posters ^^)

@Riza Ayano - Welcome! And that is a lovely drawing! ^^ But, A Pierrot's Aria is correct and we also have many FMA fans who have not seen the series final yet, and hence we try to keep away spoilers for series final from those members and visitors who have not seen series final of FMA. (Hence, unfortunately I had to take out your sig. Sorry! sad.gif If you haven't saved the URL for that drawing, I saved it, so please PM me. ^^)

However, I would love to see your post with that lovely drawing on the designated post-chapter 108 discussion threads, such as post-chapter 108 discussions for Royai fans thread, post-chapter 108 discussions for EdxWin fans thread, and such. ^^
More about this and links to such designated threads, you can check out our board announcement regarding FMA chapter 108/ep63-64 spoilers. smile.gif



Btw, just letting you guys know that this month's Shounen GanGan had the re-print of FMA chapter 108 and hence most of FMA fans in Japan had the chance to read the final chapter of FMA now, and hence...sometime soon we'll be switching to a "modified" (less strict ^^) Spoiler policy regarding FMA series final spoilers. But, till then, we appreciate your continuing cooperation on avoiding posting FMA season final spoilers on this thread. ^^


OT:
@amestris_star - Miss you, and hope your feet will get better, and your boss will go away somewhere for a long time so that you will feel much better, and you will be less busy at work and we'll get to see more of your posts on our board! ^^
jacksparrow589
Tombow--Thanks! I think I'll mostly stick to fics, though. I definitely had more fun with the dialog than the drawing, but it was a nice change of pace. (My word choice generally can't be described with "cute", unfortunately, but there are a few...)

OT: I am SO going to get September's Shonen GanGan! *races off to Uwajimaya*

Riza Ayano--Welcome! Expect a PM from me about your fanart--I'd love to see it! smile.gif

Oh, and speaking of fics and art, I just posted the last theme in my Royai 100 themes collection. I would post the link here, but I just realized that the last one is probably too spoiler-ish to post the link here, even if it's to the first theme and not the last. Time to hit up the post-chapter 108 Royai thread! (Or, if you don't want to go there for some reason, my username on fanfiction.net is the same as it is here. Just find "Chaotic Sonata" under my stories.)

RESPONDING TO A Pierrot's Aria BELOW: Thank you! I'm glad I could get you to smile! smile.gif I hope things are okay!
A Pierrot's Aria
@jacksparrow589 I forgot to comment on your little comic...I love it! It really made me smile (and I really need cheering up at this moment, too) and the facial expressions are too adorable! laugh.gif

And scarlette thank you for posting that awesome little doujinshi! biggrin.gif

@Tombow No worries. happy.gif I hope you didn't mind me stepping in...I just thought it would be helpful, so there would be a possibility that you wouldn't have to edit the post! D:
Bett Bett
I just remembered i read somewhere that arakawa made the name "Riza" but in our country its an rare but old name which means "harvest" . happy.gif I am curious if anybody thinks that there could be some connection between the two. I personally don't but who knows? tongue.gif
jacksparrow589
Well, Riza's probably not a common name in Japan, if I had to take a guess. (Oddly enough, there's all sorts of characters with the name "Risa" with an "s", but we don't talk about them here. tongue.gif ) And really, there are so many derivations of "Theresa" (the name meaning "harvest", as Bett Bett mentioned). I mean, FMA was the first place I'd seen "Riza" with an "i", let alone anything pronounced as such without the "te" sound in front of it. No joke.

I did do some looking, though, and, as Bett Bett is from Hungary, I'm not surprised at what I found: the almighty Wikipedia (Yes, yes, well all know how reliable it is, but I think we can trust it on this one) has "Riza" in that exact spelling listed as a Hungarian variant on the name "Teresa".

I will, however, also refer you to Turdaewen's post for another take on the meaning behind "Riza". Not saying it's necessarily right or that Bett Bett is necessarily wrong, but just pointing out that there can be more than one take on a name. Interestingly enough, the name Turdaewen mentions isn't among the variants Wikipedia gives. Hmmm...

Merely food for thought, as I said. I just don't know why Arakawa would knowingly choose a name meaning "harvest" for Riza, even if she just liked the sound of it or something, but not everything has to have a meaning behind it, I suppose. Ed and Al, and Roy's names seem to match just a little bit better, though, even if you take the old Celtic/Gaelic meaning of "Roy": red. (Referring to hair, but red=blood...?)

Okay, yes, I've thought WAY too much about this, but that's how I am. (That, and one of the Royai 100 themes is "Given Name", so I did a little bit of research when I wrote it.)

OT: Happy birthday, Bett Bett! I hope the day has been/is/continues to be great! smile.gif
Turdaewen
Yeah... the only thing that we can tell for sure is that most names in FMA Arakawa has taken from a Ocidental Names' Dictionary, so, it's pretty probable that Arakawa has taken Riza from the Hungarian.
Here in Brazil, there's a few woman called Riza, but usually associated to Maria, like "Maria Riza". But I think it's pretty established that Arakawa didn't "came up with it": it's an existent name, nonetheless.


As for the meaning, the name Theresa has many. It can be related to harvest as well as it can be related to the woman born in Tessalia (an island of Greece), which is known for its women warriors, so the name means BOTH "Havest" and "warrior/Guardian", depending the way you interpret it: It's believed that it comes from the Greek "therizein" (and I never thought me knowing a little Greek would help in such a random thing. lol), which means "to gather", hence, "guardian" and, also, "harvest".



It´s just like my name, Raquel, which many people say to mean "lamb", when, in fact it means a lot more than that: in hebrew it meant "sacrificial lamb", the one they used to kill to offer to God, which, in certain interpretations, can be understood as "Devoted", or "consecrated"... so, names meanings are not something with "one and only interpretation", it's a whole context to it. XD



Therefore, you're both correct in relation to Riza's name. XD
jacksparrow589
Turdaewen--That'd be you and Bett Bett who are both correct--I did nothing but cite you two. smile.gif I'd be happy to take the credit, though. tongue.gif

anybody seen this?

YAY BONESSS I LOVE YOU 8DD
Michiyo-
Since I’m from Hungary I like the possibility that Arakawa chose a Hungarian name for Riza. ^^ I checked the names dictionary and it says that the name Riza derived from the Hungarian variant of Theresa or Rose.

Btw, the full Roy-tachi pic on Gangan Online has been revealed (A Pierrot’s Aria posted the the pic here), and I made a few icons of it. Hope you like them, they’re free to use, as always. ^^






@shanryelric: Yeah, Vol. 14 cover is awesome, it’s definitely my favorite cover. biggrin.gif I posted a bigger version of it here.
black~hayate
Whoa what an awesome picture. I hope it's a "Royai forever dvd" cover or something biggrin.gif Just joking, there won't be something like this.
Bett Bett
Don't misunderstand me Michyio but I love you! wub.gif This pictures are awesome biggrin.gif
jacksparrow589
Michiyo---You rock! Great icons, as usual! smile.gif

shanryelric--My reaction to that: blink.gif followed by wub.gif (The latter in an "OMG teh angst, it eats meh!" sort of way, of course.)

~hayate--I know we probably won't get one, but why shouldn't there be one of those? Somebody should design one! (I can see the ideas in my head, but the result of me putting anything visual down on paper ain't pretty.)
Elisabeth Hawkeye
Great work Michiyo biggrin.gif Every time I come here after a long time, there's always someone who make my day happy.gif
And I have a question(sorry if this is not the right place, I just haven't got enough time to go through the whole net, because the school in our country will start sometime the next week...aww this is so cruel laugh.gif ) Why they suddenly stopped airing of the new dubbed episodes? Only thing I could find was there
http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qi...18164924AAlWpWY
but I'm really not sure about it, so any suggestions?
Riza Ayano
Nice Work Michiyo,I really love it..It;s nice to see it had been coloured. biggrin.gif
Tombow
^ ETA: @Riza Ayano - I just took out your sig pic and changed it to a link because the pic is way too large for our board. >.<
The max sig size for our board is 500 pix wide x 300 pix high (including all text and images in the sig.)
You can check out this post for more info. ^^



@shanryelric - Yes, I love that cover! ^^

@Michiyo- Nice avatars! It's nice to see Arakawa-sensei's new drawing! And, you did great coloring jobs!! Thank you for sharing those! ^^

@Elisabeth Hawkeye - I agree with the answer that was posted on Yahoo. Dubbed episodes of FMA: Brotherhood anime on Adult Swim just went on a break after the 26th episode (26 episodes usually make up 1 season, and yes, the same thing happened for the first FMA anime also.)
I'm pretty sure the rest will come out sometime later on Adult Swim, but we still don;t know exactly when. Hopefully we don't have to wait long, but it could possibly be like, 4 months wait, like how it was for the first FMA anime. sad.gif (And by the way, FMA: Brotherhood anime is discussed in our FMA: Brotherhood anime forum, and if you got any question on this series, you can post it on FMA: Brotherhood anime Q & A thread. biggrin.gif )
