jacksparrow589
Right you are, and PG-13 it is... (I was thinking PG was a little low, but I have a very skewed perspective of the world.)

And yes, of course! We can definitely portray what we like about each as individuals and as a couple! I had hoped that was clear from the start, but I guess not. Oh well. At least it's clear now! Thanks, A Pierrot's Aria! smile.gif
RoyxRizaFan
I like that idea! Then we'll get better responses than the usual "I like them because they're SUBTLE" (I say this because I do it myself as well, like, every other day lmao I noticed this when I had to stop and think, what's another word for 'subtle,' I feel like using it five times in one post PROLLY isn't a good idea...XDD)
LadyNorbert
I had to share this because it makes me laugh now that I think about it.

I'm not going to be able to participate in this year's Royai Day (my first ever). I will be out of town...because June 11th is the day that my blonde goddaughter is marrying her black-haired fiance!
RoyxRizaFan
Honestly, the sheer epic of that coincidence can count as your RoyAi day contribution tongue.gif
jacksparrow589
So, for planning purposes, whatever we choose to do, how many days do we want to celebrate? I know most people are here from timezones all over the place. I'm in the GMT-8 timezone, and I certainly want to be able to celebrate when it's Royai Day in my timezone. I was thinking maybe celebrating from the 12 AM that starts June 11th on the west side of the International Date Line and celebrate until 11:59PM June 12th on the west side of the International Date Line so that everyone's entire June 11th is included. Does that sound good for everyone?

And how organized do you guys want to be? Do you want to just flood the thread with "This is my entry. It's a(n) (fanart/fanfic/essay/photo/banner/image of some sort/whatever). Here's the link."? Or do you want to organize differently, and if so, how would you propose that work? (Be warned, I will likely drag you into the planning if you're serious about it!)

Is there anyone who would want to create the album post(s), too? It really isn't that hard, but if you guys want to get involved, I want to give you the chance!

Just let me know what you guys think, and be warned that if you don't, this will basically be flooding the board and I'll create the album in my own sweet time. tongue.gif
A Pierrot's Aria
I believe including everyone's June 11th, as you said, would be the fairest option. wink.gif

Also, I think that just posting as normal with an entry would actually be better, albeit slightly disorganised. Of course, this means that some entries will almost inevitably be posted in succession of each other with very little, or no comments (about them) in between. So to remedy this, I'd suggest that if we are to just post our entries freely, that members try to (whether they are celebrating Royai day or not) comment on every entry, and not cherry pick from a few --I think this would make it fair. (And, likewise, if one entry is posted after another, the second entrant will comment on the one above etc). I hope that makes sense!

I also say this because noticing new posts would be the best way to alert people that there is a new entry/general post/reply.

But this is just the state of my backwards thinking. tongue.gif

I do have another idea (albeit with a few kinks to iron out), but I'm not sure about it...
jacksparrow589
I agree. If we do just a regular flood of whatever, please try to comment on everything. It doesn't have to be very long, but it can be hurtful if there's one person everyone even randomly skips, and since we're all friends here... Bad.

I'm thinking now, and I'll actually just be out of school at that point, so, depending on job status and whatnot, I might be able to create a preliminary, quick-and-dirty album as we go along just with links to the posts that have different people's submissions on them, and maybe put the link to that post in my signature so that whoever wants to find it doesn't have to go looking for it...

It might, work, it might not. We'll see as time draws closer. But we'll come up with something. We always do. smile.gif
A Pierrot's Aria
^Yeah that was my thinking. smile.gif

To be honest, I can't think of any other effective ways of introducing entries. The only other idea I could think of was probably a lot more trouble, that's why I decided against posting it. laugh.gif

If you're unable to get the time to create the album, I'll happily do that if no one else feels up to it. happy.gif (Sorry I didn't reply about that before!)
xUltimate_Shieldx
This post doesn't have to do with Royai day, but today's mother's day, and I drew a Royai day pic for it, and my friend told me to put it up here, so here you go happy.gif

Tombow
Awww, xUltimate_Shieldx I love your drawing!! wub.gif
What a beautiful Royai-Mother's Day drawing! Thank you so much for sharing it with us! happy.gif


OT: @LadyNorbert - Congratulations for the wedding of your goddaughter! happy.gif
jacksparrow589
xUltimate-Shieldx--I think I just died, it was that cute! Thanks for sharing with us! biggrin.gif
Michiyo-
Very cute Royai drawing, xUltimate_Shieldx , I really like it! Thanks for sharing it! biggrin.gif
Dark-Winds
@xUltimate_Shieldx I told you listening to my advice was a good idea tongue.gif I know I've already said this a bajillion times, but the picture is sooo cute >///< I love it!
xUltimate_Shieldx
Thank you, I appreciate all of your comments happy.gif
A Pierrot's Aria
@xUltimate_Shieldx Your picture is absolutely stunning! And I really like the soft colour palette you used for it! I love it --thank you for sharing it with us! It's a pleasure to look at!
Rainshine
@xUltimate_Shieldx Wow! That drawing is amazing. And adorable. Really, really adorable. 8D You just earned yourself a new watcher, haha. ;D

xUltimate_Shieldx
Thank you to all who have commented on that picture =)
HawkseyeM1910
@xUltimate_ShieldxThat picture is gorgeous! biggrin.gif

I figured since we're at it, I was going to add something I made also, fellow Royai fans. I was going to wait until June 11, but I figured I'll just submit the colored version then.

http://thehawkseyes.deviantart.com/#/d3g056j
I based it off of chapter 2 of the Game of Three Generals by Lady Norbert


It's not the best, because it's only the second picture I've drawn on the tablet I just bought, but constructive criticism is welcome!

Cheers!
-DA

biggrin.gif
LadyNorbert
It's....it's the first fan art of the trilogy. Oh gosh. I am so...so excited. Thank you!

(Just to clarify, I am CRYING because I am so touched.)
A Pierrot's Aria
That's a brilliant drawing, HawkseyeM1910!! You've done such a great job with it! wub.gif
Tombow
@HawkseyeM1910 - That's a nice drawing of Roy and Riza! Some say Roy's hair is rather difficult to get it right, but I think you got it nicely. ^^ Are you going to color that one for Royai Day? Can't wait to see it colored! happy.gif
jacksparrow589
HawkseyeM1910--Whoa, awesome! You're very good at drawing--makes me wish I had that sort of talent! smile.gif (I love the chess pieces in the lower right, by the way.)
Michiyo-
Very nice drawing, HawkseyeM1910! I also can't wait to see it colored! biggrin.gif

It's great to see that this thread is so active these days, we have fanarts, fics and interesting discussions. I remember that after FMA has ended, no one posted here for a long time. Hopefully there'll be even more posts around Royai Day! ^^
HawkseyeM1910
Thank you for the very nice comments!

@LadyNorbert Thank YOU for sparking up my interest in drawing this piece

@Tombow I've started coloring it, I'm going to try and have it posted for Royai day, maybe make something else. smile.gif
Roys hair took me a little while to do, but I found Riza's face was most difficult, I actually skim through episodes to make sure I got the side of her face right.


Again, thanks for all the nice comments!

@Michiyo I agree, I was worried since I finished FMAB a whole year after most people on here that forums and such wouldn't be active at all, it's great to see that there's still so many big fans out there! biggrin.gif


PS:
@jacksparrow589 Hey, you never know, you might be a lot better than you expected, if not, just work on it for a while, it's just practice smile.gif And I find drawing on a tablet is much easier than on paper, too ^.^
RoyxRizaFan
The great thing about FMA is that it has so many complex layers that relate to so many universal ideas and concepts that no matter what, there will always be something our lives that will spark a memory of FMA, simply because the story had so much going on and such deep characters, plots, symbols, relationships, etc...you can connect a lot of it to real life AND other entertainment, so there will always be something to remind us, or add another layer...which is why I think this thread will remain active for so long. The FMA passion cannot die, and my passion for FMA is pretty intertwined with my RoyAi passion (isn't it that way for us all?) so...I'm sure we can hang in there! Even when we were just struggling along with our Questions of the Week (special thanks to jacksparrow's great imagination!) we always stumbled upon something new, or a new way to look at things.

Anyhow!

@ HawkseyeM1910 - I love it! Is this really your first time with a tablet? That's amazing for a first time! In fact, it's just amazing in general tongue.gif I can't wait to see the colored version!

Now I'm going to have to go check out Lady Norbert's story when I have the chance!
xUltimate_Shieldx
@HawkseyeM1910 - That looks really great! Especially since it's your first time using a tablet. I'll be looking forward to seeing it all colored in! biggrin.gif

And I totally agree with RoyxRizafan. I'm still finding new things in the manga even now that I've never noticed or really looked into before. happy.gif
HawkseyeM1910
@xUltimate_Shieldx Thank you so much, that means a lot. I am looking forward to seeing the pictures you will come up with for Royai day smile.gif

I also agree with you and RoyxRizaFan, FMA is still super exciting for me, I know I just finished it but I still can't get enough of it smile.gif

Like said, I still am learning a lot about the characters, or the series in general. I definitely agree about the passion for it always living on. smile.gif
LadyNorbert
So...to get a new topic started (and give me yet another reason to procrastinate on this horrible story - my readers are not happy with me and they're about to get even unhappier)...anyone have a favorite RoyAi fanvid?

I'm particularly fond of this one:

http://youtu.be/8VI674Lw3M8
xUltimate_Shieldx
@LadyNorbert - That was really upbeat and silly xD

My personal favorite is this one here:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=md_NjoyY3KU...nel_video_title
jacksparrow589
Okay, it's more mmv than amv, but this is my favorite: She is the Sunlight
BE WARNED! This has spoilers for the first anime and Conqueror of Shamballa, as well as spoilers through chapter 95 of the manga. It may also make you cry because it's that beautiful.

Lady Norbert--I'm not that upset with what's going on! It's your story!

xUltimate_Shieldx--Ohhh! That's a lovely song, and a good video, to boot! smile.gif
LadyNorbert
Those were both great vids!

(Thanks, sparrow - I have to admit, the story HURTS to write at present. But I'm glad nobody hates me yet!)
Dark-Winds
This AMV has always been a personal favorite of mine smile.gif

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2bdzK4zu5XQ...feature=related

I think the song is very fitting as well biggrin.gif
yadi ina
@ xUltimate_Shieldx: I also love this video. The song is beautiful.
@ Dark-winds: Just another of my amv's favorite. Metric I love that song and the editing is great.
My favorites are these:

(Just to be safe, be warned that there are spoilers for chapters 95 of the manga, onwards in these AMVs!)
Ces diamants-la

Point of no return
In both the editing and the song are great.

and now to go to sleep, I saw they were showing some pictures that I found very good, especially the Mother's Day, so teach them a drawing I made long ago. I do not draw very well, but I am proud of my creations. Hopefully you make me a good review.

Flower
A Pierrot's Aria
Great AMVs, everyone! I'm afraid I don't have any to share because I don't really watch them, usually. ><

And that is a really fantastic picture you drew, yadi ina! it's very cute and sweet --great job! happy.gif
HawkseyeM1910
I don't usually watch AMV's either but those posted were awesome. I had to watch some of them a couple of times smile.gif


yadi ina I think you draw really well, I actually commented one of your pictures on my DA account. smile.gif
Dark-Winds
@yadi ina Very nice picture. You draw them very well smile.gif

So, who's getting pumped for Royai day? biggrin.gif We have less than a month to go.
jacksparrow589
yadi ina--Thank you for sharing those videos! And your picture is lovely. smile.gif

Dark-Winds--That amv gave me chills for some reason...

And Royai Day less than a month away? Oh man, so much school between now and then... *cries*
xUltimate_Shieldx
@yadi ina - That's a nice picture, it gives off a happy and relaxed feeling happy.gif

And I'm so pumped for Royai Day too! Already planning a picture happy.gif

Hey, guys, can someone answer a question for me? I'm still working on collecting the manga and I haven't seen all of Brotherhood yet either, so I probably just haven't come across this so far. But according to a couple throwaway lines on TV Tropes, there's a point when Roy gets Riza to blush. Is that true? If so, when is that, and what does he do?

He does, but I don't see it as romantic. I don't remember the dialogues all that well, but it's near the end of the manga, when he says "Oh, those pure tears, if I could see them again" at the spot where Riza went berserk on Lust, and she answers (not too happy at that memory) "I thought that water made you useless"... with a blush of embarrassment over her face. biggrin.gif

EDIT: Sorry, I didn't think it was that spoilerish. ^^U

I got the book in figure blue the other day biggrin.gif It's so awesome. It came with a super awesome action figure of Roy and Riza, and the book has a ton of stuff about them in it. It's just too bad I can't understand the stuff in the book lol >.<

@xUltimate_Shieldx - If you can scan the content, you can open a thread "Book in Figure" Book thread in FMA manga forum and post the scan and I or some others who can read Japanese may be able to help you.
And, as for the "His Battlefield Once More" Gaiden part, I think that one has been scanlated. smile.gif

@Rainshine - Scroll down on this post here
It's a box with Roy & Riza figures plus a mini-book.
This one came with "His Battlefield Once More" Gaiden (to read this gaiden, go to this post and scroll down to "FMA Book in Figure Blue Gaiden: His Battlefield Once More") smile.gif

Hi everyone! I haven't been on in awhile, but I remembered that Royai Day is coming up.
I still love Fullmetal Alchemist and Roy and Riza, but life has been so busy that I feel like I can't keep up with all the postings and I feel bad. But I hope to get caught up during the Royai Day celebration. Also are we just celebrating on June 10th, or are we doing a weeklong celebration?
