Oh! new person! welcome ika07!

Something wrong with the site? I checked for you, my computer won't display it either. I hope it gets fixed. >< Don't worry!! We have other connections. wink.gif

@MeLRizA- Don't worry! This thread will be super active when the next ch. comes out!
I have a pen tablet(it's a really small one though) dry.gif Not a fancy shmancy one. It works though so I'm not complaining. biggrin.gif
Welcome to the Royai thread, ika07! I hope you'll enjoy it here ^^ The people are really nice!

@ Blue_Haven - You're so lucky to have a pen tablet!
And I also think this thread will be active when the next chapter comes out, but I'm always careful to not read everything. I don't really like spoilers tongue.gif But I understand, since I'm the only one who's not read the manga yet.

@ Nil-chan - I just noticed: Where is your 'official Royai thread greeter' badge? You should put it back into your siggy!
Ooh.. A new Royai lover! WELCOME ika07!! Enjoy your stay and have lots of fun here~ Yesh, everyone here are very nice!! laugh.gif but meh bites! *points to siggie*

@ everyone : I think so too.. When the next chapter comes out, this thread will be active with Royai goodness..

Hey, yeah.. Galorfilinde's right. What happened to your greeter bagde, Nil-chan? huh.gif
awww... thank you everyone for the warm welcome!! biggrin.gif

o, yeah..i've been wondering... where else can I get new chapters of fma?
I've already checked the thread for the forum on this site that lists all the sites where you can get it from, but none of them work for me mad.gif

If anyone could tell me, I'd appreciate it laugh.gif

I've also noticed the thread growing slower than before...(I was one of those people who just read the posts...and leave silently like a ghost...)
but hopefully the new chapter will make up for it smile.gif
ika07: Welcome! I like your avatar.
@ ika07
If the msn groups don't work, have you tried online manga viewer? LOLx, you were here before and haven't joined till now! ohmy.gif

The thread may be growing slower because there's not much Royai stuffs to talk about these few days.. *sigh* With the arrival of chapter 61, everyone will be gossiping like crazy.. *prepares to spam*

Can anyone tell me what's wrong with FMA@msn.groups ? Its been down for more than a week..
Is anyone else having problems with ZOMGfta?
@Summoner Colettte: Yeah, i think everyone is. I get my manga chapters frorm, they have all the current chapters.

@Galorfilinde: My badge? I'm working on a new one. I couldn't read the otherone very well, but i wll put it back in.
I'm having problems with zomgfta too sad.gif
and with the fma msn group sad.gif
and the chapter 61 is going to arrive!!!!!!!!
*tring to enter in zomgfta page without luck* TT_________________TT

*now tring the page that Nil-chan posted* laugh.gif
It works!!!! but you have to download them (ok. I don't mind)
Does this page bring the chapter fast?????? blink.gif

hey, i'm looking for this:

- Roy Mustang, Riza Hawkeye, Alex Louis Armstrong, Maes Hughes, Jeans Havoc, Kain Fuery, Vato Falman, Heymans Breda, Maria Ross
- National Establishment and Military Organization
- Military Establishment
- A new Coordination of Bradley's Political System
- General Missions of the Military
- A Table of Military Classes
(note that most of those character names up there are accompanied with a timeline)
- Encyclopedia "Military"

* - "Truth" room, I wore underwear! (another one of those from manga)
* - Interview with Riza, Scizeka (sp? I think it's in Material Side book, I can check later), and Maria, as long as Mustang's crew (but not Mustang)
(oh yea, the above Interview of Ed, Al, and Winry, same as this interview, is conducted by "Truth".)
* - then a poster thingie on the Armstrong's family.
* - "Reveal the secret of Colonel Mustang's hugh popularity!!" (It's a chat long thingie of the Military crew, excluding Riza and Mustang... it's funny. I am interested in translating this.)" posted here

I've been off for a few days *is ashamed*

Welcome ika07!! So you were one of those lurking unregestereds, huh?...have you been to the Royai forums yet? *points at sig*

Indeed it is Shiroken and WELCOME on board to the most AWESOME Royai thread ever!! Enjoy your stay and have lots of fun!! XD

@ ika07 : There is over-flowing love in this thread ya'know~ Spread the Royai love~

@ paca : The PACA Alchemist? tongue.gif *that was random*

Hmm.. Don't tell me that Tombow's computer had crashed, then she'll have a lot of catching up to do.. I just can't wait for chapter 61 to be released too..
@Shiroken: Welcome!!!Welcome!!!

@MeLRizA: No , that not. I'm searching for something with a deep meaning (O__o) *jajjajajjajajja*

@Ika07- Don't worry! I too was a lurker.

Welcome Shiroken!!

@paca- The Royai Alchemist of course. laugh.gif tongue.gif Sorry that was so lame.
@Shiroken: Welcome to the awesomeness that is the extremely-active-now-four-hundred-and-eighty-six-pages-long-most-awesome-forum-of-all-time-of-all-the-royai-lovers-who-are-so-much-cooler-than-everyone-else Royai Thread! Hope you enjoy your stay, the people are all awesome and welcoming, and we have much fun times here. Sit back and enjoy the royai! thankyou so much for sharing that bg!
*pokes nifty new badge*

@MelRiza: Chapter 61 must comeout soon! Jeej!!

@Paca:How the um.... nope. I got nothing.
@ Shiroken - Welcome to the Royai thread! Yeah it's a good wallpaper, I know that one. Ningen has a lot great wallpapers. I hope you'll like it here ^^

Yay, Nil-chan, your new badge is awesome! You're right, this one is better readable. The colors match your siggy!

@ Paca - Well, you yourself know the best who you are, and what you like. I've called myself 'the Bright Diamond alchemist', because I love diamond jewelry (I always wear diamond jewelry. Bling bling XD) and because diamonds give faith, purity, life, joy, innocence and repentance. So think about something that symbolises the way you are, or the things you like. Maybe I'm taking this too seriously laugh.gif
wait, just a quick question..
since zomgfta is down, where would we get the releases from? huh.gif
I mean raw chapter btw wink.gif

@Shiroken: welcome!!^^I love the wall paper!
@Galorfilinde: (grr, i keep wanting to spell your name with 2 'l's ) Thankyou! i'm glad you like.

@ika07: I dunno. I know people like sepent's cross and evil genius did some translations, but.. hmm.. Hopefully ZOMGFTA will be back up before the next chappie (which will hopefully be filled with ROyai goodnesss)

It's a bit late but, Welcome Shiroken! That's a cool wall paper.*saves*
@ Nil-chan : Your badge is back!! Yay!! Its so nice and shiny~ I agree with Galorfilinde that its more readable.. ^^

MElriza: I`m agree with Nil-chan . Your siggy is awesome.
Aww.. Thank you Nil-chan and 55th animal alchemist!! I'm really in <3 with photoshop now.. ahaha. I can never be better than Nil-chan, she's far too good! I love her backgrounds and how she modify the images!

The New Fullmetal Alchemist
WHEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!! laugh.gif Hahahaa! Hey, all! Aren't you guys proud of me?! I kept my computer and TV off for over a week! Yays!!! I no longer feel like a completely lazy slob! Hahaha! However, I am very far behind on not only this forum, but all of my fanfics! Gah! Oh, well... sigh... So, how's everyone doing? Good, good, that's good (nods).

Loving the pics, paca!! Oh, and ika07, yes, I love Pirates, too!!! Eee! My friend's b-day is actually on the 7th! We're all going to go see the movie when it comes ou! Eeep! Yays!

So anyway, now that I've "de-toxified" myself, I plan on spending a bit more time here! Hahaa! laugh.gif

Oh, BTW, does anyone here read RoyxEd stories? If so, would you mind reading mine and letting me know what you think? Nothing physical, oh God, no! Just a little on their "relationship" - I was asked to do it for someone with a new FMA website - they wanted to post some fanfiction on their site, and they asked me! Yay! I feel special... anyway, here's the address - sorry, I'm a bit too lazy to do it as a link, but if you want an actual link, clicking on the link thingy in my sig! Haha!

BTW, it's called "It Takes Love to Live" - thanks again! You guys rock! smile.gif
Thank you paca and ika07!! I'm so proud to have learnt to love photoshop *credits to Nil-chan and Kurayami* but I'm still struggling with other tools..

BTW, I've seen those pictures. They're from the Character Guidebook *I have the book* Thanks for sharing them^^ Do you know that Roy drew that ugly (its really retarded) Hayate doodle?

@ The New Fullmetal Alchemist : I would read if there's nothing physical and too emotional about the story ^^; So sorry about that..
@The New Fullmetal Alchemist I read your fic. it was good. Only now I really want to know what happened! Stupid clif-hangers, oh well...

@ MeLRizA & Ika07 I've never had the chanse to learn photoshop.

@ paca Thanks for sharing the pics!

(I'm going to the lake for one week in about an hour, and we don't have a computer there, or T.V. so see you when I get back)

Also if anyone wants to read a weired and cute fic. that I wrote, it's on my LJ sorry it's a friends only post.
Ok.. Since No_One said that The NFA's fic was good, I shall try reading it risking the fact that I'll read some funny stuffs in your story <-I hope there's none..

Aww.. We're gonna miss you No_One sad.gif Take care and have fun there^^
It seems that so many people are leaving.. Tombow, No_one, etc.. ._. Hope to see those who have left real soon..

The Rooster

The Rooster is a flamboyant personality, feisty and obstinate
. He is quite the extrovert who loves to strut his stuff and is proud of who he is. Outwardly confident, the Rooster is also a trustworthy, hardworking individual. He’ll tell it like it is with no qualms or reservations.


Roosters are very loyal individuals. They do not like dishonesty or mockery of any sort. They are blunt, up front and honest people and expect those around them to be the same. Roosters are happiest when they are surrounded by others, at a party or just a social gathering. They even enjoy the spotlight and will exhibit their charisma and wit in a minute. This star quality can be overbearing, for a Rooster expects you to listen to him while he speaks and can become agitated if you don’t. Roosters do have a tendency to brag about themselves and their achievements and demand an attentive audience when doing so.


Brave, Romantic, Motivated, Proud, Blunt, Resentful, Boastful


The characteristics of the Rooster are tempered by one of the five Chinese elements of Metal, Water, Wood, Fire and Earth overlaying a 5-year cycle of characteristics on the original 12-year cycle.


Roosters are typically fit people. They enjoy sports and active hobbies such as hiking and swimming. They don’t get sick very often because they tend to fight illness fairly well. However, when they do get ill, they usually bounce right back. Roosters can be a little high strung, suffering from dramatic mood swings and stress.


As proud as they are of themselves, you can only imagine how they are about their homes. Roosters put a lot of effort into their homes as they reflect the Roosters assets and taste. They are very neat and clean and have everything in its own specific place. They make a chore out of cleaning out drawers and closets with a knack for rearranging them better and better each time they attempt it. This habit is enough to drive anyone berserk, but a Rooster’s family understands his need for a dramatic appearance.



Roosters are more motivated than most other Animal Signs, making their careers a priority in their lives. They are hard working, flexible individuals able to stick to the given tasks. They are generally successful individuals who reach the top of their chosen professions.


An eye for detail means the Rooster is pretty good at handling his finances. He is able to give others good financial advice and can help get budgets under control. However, when it comes to his own finances, the Rooster is either or. He either spends it all or hoards it for a rainy day.


Those born in the Year of the Rooster share the same kinds of goals and objectives in life. The occupations best suited for the Rooster are listed below:



Armed forces members


Book keepers

Insurance agents





Certified Public Accountants

(and where is alchemists??? blink.gif )


Whether Roosters are compatible with their business partners depends on whether their signs are harmonious or antagonistic to those of their business partner. Considering the congruity of their own characters and the characters of their business partners can also be very useful.

Roosters ruled by Benefit from Are Antagonistic to

Metal Earth Snakes Fire Roosters

Water Metal Oxen Earth Pigs

Wood Water Pigs Metal Pigs

Fire Wood Sheep Water Dogs

Earth Fire Dragons Wood Tigers

Leisurely activities and pleasures


Since Roosters are born under the same Animal Sign, they often share likes and dislikes. Following are similar likes and dislikes of the Rooster personality.

Color Preference: Peach, apricot

Gems and Stones: Diamond, Ruby, Topaz

Suitable Gifts: Terrarium, walking cane, flask, bonsai tree

Hobbies and Pastimes: Fishing, gardening, swimming, hiking, mountain climbing

Roosters Dislike: Being made fun of, bad hygiene, impoliteness, unmotivated people


The appearance-oriented Rooster must go to all the cool, fashionable places when traveling. These people take pride in knowing all of the latest trends in hair, makeup and fashion. They like to spend their money in exclusive department stores where they oooh and ahh over the expensive merchandise. However, the Rooster is also capable of spending a vacation relaxing, as long as it’s in a five-star hotel with gourmet food and wine.

FRIENDS AND ENEMIES( rolleyes.gif )

Friends of the Rooster cannot be sensitive people. As bossy, overbearing and blunt as the Rooster is, you can imagine just about anyone wouldn’t last without a sense of humor! That’s why Roosters tend to have more acquaintances than actual friends. Still, any friend of a Rooster knows how dependable and honest he is and treasures his friendship despite his arrogance.

Compatible Friends

Best Friends: Oxen and Snakes

Mortal Enemies: Rabbits


Roosters are quite protective of their children, always nurturing them and caring for them. Sometimes they can be a bit overprotective in trying to keep them safe. They are known to be very strict with their children demanding respect not only for others, but their environments and surroundings. Rooster parents will absolutely not tolerate bad manners and are caught up in the way their children represent them while they’re not there.


Children born in the Year of the Rooster are bright, intelligent children. They are creative and alert. They easily play and interact with other children and generally like to learn new things. They are eager to please parents and teachers alike. However, Rooster children do not make the best scholars and they tend to excel in subjects where interaction and social skills are required.


Some parents immediately click with their children and others find they will never have a close relationship no matter how hard they try to make it happen. Following are compatibility ratings between Rooster parents and their children.

Rooster with Under the same roof Compatibility Rating

Rat not very close **

Ox strong bonds ****

Tiger kind of distant *

Rabbit a bit of erratic behavior **

Dragon understanding ***

Snake divergent expectations *

Horse temper tantrums **

Sheep affectionate in spite of the differences *

Monkey conflicting *

Rooster too headstrong **

Dog very loving and understanding ****

Pig incredibly supporting ****

*uphill struggle **some complications ***easy bonding ****on the same wavelength



Roosters are generally pretty black or white when it comes to their feelings. They either like you, or they don’t. There is no in between. Although they are vocal with opinions and ideas, Roosters are pretty tight-lipped about their personal emotions and feelings. They certainly don’t wear their hearts on their sleeves. They are intensely private people who never kiss and tell. ohmy.gif


Roosters are not extremely easy to live with. However, if you can get past their bossy, obstinate, my way or no way exterior, you find a wonderfully romantic, caring individual hidden beneath. Their hearts are made of solid gold and they genuinely care abut their family and friends as mush as they care about themselves (believe it or not!). They are not suited for a sensitive partner, again, their candor and wit can be humiliating at times. Roosters can be highly critical of their partners, often expecting too much of them.


Roosters need a stable companion, one who can take everything he dishes out. He needs someone who will stand up to him and his mincing words and out him in place when need be. Roosters also need partners who will deflate them when they are a bit too high on themselves and who can take their constant boasting.



More conflict than love.

Both are strong-willed which can make for some difficult roads ahead.

Great pair! Go for it!


You conflict about who is boss, but for the most part you get along quite well.


Not a good match. You’ll fight a lot.


Not very attracted physically which can make for a difficult romance.


You are both way too egotistical. There’s not enough room for both heads.


Not too much in common can make for dull conversations.


Your differences can unite you.

The Ox

Those born under the influence of the Ox are fortunate to be stable and persevering. The typical Ox is a tolerant person with strong character. Not many people could equal the resolution and fearlessness the Ox exhibits when deciding to accomplish a task or an objective. As we used this great creature long ago to plow the soil day after day, so do Ox people labor through their daily responsibilities either at work or at home without complaint or gripe. Oxen know they will succeed through hard work and sustained effort and find no truth or benefit in concocting get-rich-quick schemes.


Pragmatic and down-to-earth, Ox people are motivated to work hard and have no respect for lazy or careless people dry.gif . Although they can be easily trusted and find it easy to put trust in others, they are not dependent on friends and family and would rather find an answer or a solution themselves than to ask these people for help or guidance. However, others can, without a doubt rely on Oxen, who are always honest and meticulous about their responsibilities. While they do not feel the need for many distant or acquaintance-oriented friendships, they value the strong bonds they share with their partners and families, and make close friends that last a lifetime.

Though they are quite open-minded, once Ox people have made a decision about something, they rarely change it. This is a defining characteristic that can be seen as obstinacy, but it is actually the way an Ox learns to be strong, brave and straightforward. It is the way the Ox learned to take on tasks and responsibilities and how he learns to be reliable for others. Oxen are more comfortable with the well-known as opposed to the unfamiliar. Yet, beneath their unpretentious, tranquil exterior lies a heart of gold and a motivation to prosper.


Obstinate, Pouty, Truthful, Motivated, Friendly, Apathetic, Genuine, Quick-tempered



People born under the sign of the Ox usually have strong codes and work ethics. This can lead to a tendency to be a workaholic, and they should make an effort to relax more. Many Oxen work in relatively stationary occupations, and would benefit from squeezing a little exercise into their routines. They are prone to bone and joint problems - especially the knees - and must pay special attention to these areas. However, Ox people are usually strong and robust, and, according to ancient wisdom, should be blessed with long lives.


The Ox’s home is his castle, a place where he finds relaxation and peace from the everyday hustle and bustle of his career or responsibilities. This is where he spends time with his friends and loved ones. The Ox person doesn’t put a lot of effort into making his house stylish, for he would much rather be comfortable while reading the newspaper or watching television. He doesn’t spend much time indoors anyway—he wants to be outside, smelling the air, planting gardens and trees, which will usually be evidenced by the botanical literature you will find on his bookshelf or on his coffee table. Ox people prefer to live in the country. The Ox generally prefers to decorate his home with nature’s colors, i.e. golds, greens and oranges. However, since the Ox is associated with January, winter colors might be more appealing.



Able, ethical and aware, colleagues of the Ox will marvel at their methodical approach and will depend on their eyes for detail. Oxen are not phased by routines, probably because they are so well-organized. They are better-suited for specialized positions and prefer to work in large companies. They do, however, work best when they work alone since they can be unhappy when participating in a large group.


Oxen believe in security, and thus don’t usually take wild risks or financial gambles. They are meticulous about spending money and work hard to ensure they will be able to retire comfortably.


Those born in the Year of the Ox share the same kinds of goals and objectives in life. The occupations best suited for the Ox are listed below:



Interior designers







Army Officers laugh.gif


Quarry Workers






Investment brokers

Real estate agents


Whether Oxen are compatible with their business partners depends on whether their signs are harmonious or antagonistic to those of their business partners. Considering the congruity of their own characters and the characters of their business partners can also be very useful.

Leisurely activities and pleasures


The Ox is a lover of stability, a great traditionalist and a homemaker. Rarely would you expect an Ox person to be an extrovert pleasure-seeker. They are happiest in the peace of their own home territory.

Oxen Like:

Color Preference: Violet

Gems and Stones: Jade, Emerald, Moss-Agate, Lapis-Lazuli

Suitable Gifts: Kitchen accessories, gardening and planting books, cookbooks, bonsai trees

Hobbies and Pastimes: Body-Building, Baking, Gardening, Listening to music, Sewing

Oxen Dislike: Making small talk, foolish games, feeling insecure


Actually, Oxen are homebodies, preferring the lure of the sofa or the garden to extravagant vacations far away from home. They are very happy just staying at home, spending their summer vacations catching up with the hobbies and pastimes that their workloads have prevented them from taking on previously. Whether they are planting flower beds, or enjoying a sunset on their newly-built front porch, it is all quite satisfying to them. If they do decide to take a trip, you can bet they’ll head for the hills to do some hiking or rock climbing.


Oxen are not the most sociable people and tend not to mix easily in social gatherings. Instead, they would rather be at home, enjoying their privacy and anonymity. Unlike the Rat, the Monkey, or the Rooster, the Oxen tend not to have a little black book, preferring a few very loyal friends to a large network of acquaintances. Oxen do know how to shine at social occasions, but more often than not they dislike small talk. These are wary people, unlikely to ignite friendships on the spur of the moment. They like to take their time and get to know people before disclosing themselves fully. A happy, solid relationship with their partner and children is the most satisfying goal they could accomplish.


Oxen make very protective parents. People born under this sign will unselfishly work their fingers to the bone to provide a thriving, happy and secure home where their children feel safe. In return, however, the Ox mother and father demand that their youngsters be courteous, respectful and polite. In comparison to other parents, Oxen can seem a bit authoritarian but they are conventional and believe in instilling within their children a belief system. A good education is especially important and by utilizing their educational opportunities, Oxen children can make their lives and relationships with their parents a lot easier. Ox parents expect their children to listen, behave and be attentive while they are at school. Showing rebellion is the fastest way to be punished in the Oxen household.

Oxen, especially female Oxen, tend to start their families early on and completely immerse themselves in caring for and parenting their children. This can lead to dependent children and can pose a problem for parents who are trying to teach their children to become self-reliant.


Children born under the sign of the Ox are quiet and amenable. They develop into solid, independent,

resourceful children, and are happiest when left to entertain themselves. If interrupted, provoked or forced

to do something against their will, they are likely to pout or show themselves, despite their audience.

Generally, Ox-born children are shy, and for many, childhood is quite lonely partly due to them liking to be

alone and partly because their siblings are usually much older or younger than they.

At school, subjects with a constructive appeal will be of the most interest to them. They like art and music as well. They are creative children who enjoy sports too. They are respectful, polite, hard-working, children…something their parents take very seriously.


Some parents click immediately with their children and some find they will never have a close relationship no matter how hard they try to make it happen. Following are the compatibility ratings between Oxen parents and their children.

Lovers and spouses


Oxen dislike chit-chat. They don't have fun at parties and as aforementioned, don’t have a ton of friends. They are not very sociable and would rather be spending their time at home with their families. When the Ox is in love, he does not confirm his feelings verbally, preferring to show you how he feels rather than tell you. An Ox will take a long time to decide if you are the right match for him because Oxen hate change, and want to find someone who is ready to embark upon a stable marriage. Oxen never rush into anything and are not flirtatious people. Once they have committed to you they will usually be faithful and expect reciprocation of their honorable actions.


Unfortunately, many Ox marriages do fall apart after a couple of years, possibly because the Ox is too dominant or inflexible. Perhaps it's because, Oxen tend to place blame on everyone but themselves. But if an Ox fortunate, and has chosen wisely, the couple can build and maintain a close-knit family to which the Ox will completely devote himself.


Oxen are strong, silent, reliable people who sometimes take for granted that their relationship is a partnership and that they make not always be the dominant figure. Other Animals may find them quite stubborn and overbearing. Chinese horoscopes are very specific about which partnerships have the potential to be successful in love and in business. Yet, though destiny can point us in the right direction, we must still make all efforts to maintain loving relationships. Following is a brief description of how an Ox will affect a relationship with other Animal signs.



Really good sex, but you’ll better serve each other as an affair. Marriage isn’t a good idea.


A solid partnership, but a wee bit boring.


You are completely drawn to each other but headed for a dead end.


As lovers you’ll have a solid, content marriage.


Give-and-take is not your forte and you are both more stubborn than the other.


You are headed for happiness!


Better in business than in bed.


You may be phyiscally attracted to each other, but there’s not much substance here.


If you can make it work, you’re destined for happiness and a lot of fun!

Ox*Rooster wub.gif

Sexually stimulating, passionate and spontaneous…this should be a good fit.


You probably aren’t truly comfortable with each other…there’s a reason for that. Not much in common.


Passion and similar opinions destine you for a successful marriage.
