Ling and Lan Fan? I actually ship it, and I remember hoping for more shippy moments since they encountered Bradley because that was when I started getting interested in their characters. They weren't as prominent or as obvious, and I could still interpret their relationship with a higher degree of ambiguity than with Roy and Riza.
- Aww, they look so wonderful! That's a pretty awesome sounding wedding!
I guess there's always room for some mild Alternative Character Interpretation
Hello, fellow troper. Haha, although I don't really have my own account on there.
- Actually, I was thinking less FST and more AMV for one of the songs, and the other one should have fit perfectly if Riza died instead when her throat was cut open, with Roy being forced to open the gate and failing
since it fits with the song's Orpheus/Eurydice theme.
If you don't mind I'll talk a bit about it now
The first song is Engines by Gary Go
. I was thinking of making the theme fit with the trains (and maybe cars) of Amestris interspersed with Royai ahaha. It's a little cheesy at points maybe but when you hear the song it's quite lovely.
Your love is my life
I don't know why we're fighting when we're on the same side
Stuck here we're stalling
We can't keep looking backwards, we gotta live for now not then
So engines can start again
Although tbh I have no idea how to make an AMV, so it'll be a rotting idea.
The other one, Eurydice by Sleepthief ft. Jody Quine
, has interesting lyrics, I mean the whole death theme from Orpheus and Eurydice isn't necessarily required, but it certainly makes the words more powerful. Two stanzas because it's kind of bullseye, for me anyway haha.
I've lost you my lovely
To the depths of an ocean
My blind faith,
I follow you with my hope and devotion
I'll sing for your freedom
I'm lost to release you
No heaven waits for us my sweet
I'll follow your demise to hell and beyond
- Aww, that's unfortunate. I'm actually part of the Hetalia fandom, but I'm part of a smaller community that doesn't completely focus on the pairings much and are pretty diverse in terms of preference in pairings, and are careful not to offend, to say the least. Although they can be a pretty... shocking group some times. They have tendencies.
But I do agree that the fandom has a whole kind of has a… questionable and controversial image to say the least.
