Royai Parallels: Death of the Undying || Lost Light

Col: I’m only giving you a single order to obey; don’t die.

 Lt: What you don’t know is… is that I’m under strict orders not to die.

Chapter excerpt:

"By the way, I have some shocking news for you."


"Starting yesterday, I’m the new Führer of this country."

"…Really?" she asked sarcastically. "I was not aware."

"I imagined so." He smirked as he continued. "…Since you kept calling me General last night."



EYE ON AMESTRIS | June 26, 1915

CENTRAL — by Gina Cole — Popular demand for Roy Mustang (pictured below) has skyrocketed over the past year, and we’re not surprised. He’s handsome, smart, and immensely talented with his hands, after all. Rumor also has it that he’s ripe for a promotion to Brigadier General this year — powerful, too, and ever so graceful on camera!


But following the events surrounding the still-mysterious death of the late Fuhrer Bradley last year, the Must-bang, as some call him, has slunk away from the dating scene. Some say he has a secret paramour back in Xing; others maintain that he’s been in a long-time tryst with Olivier Armstrong, our favorite fierce tigress stationed again at Fort Briggs; others still say that it’s none of the above, and that his true interests lie much closer to home…

It looks like the salivating ladies (and gents!) of Amestris will have to keep waiting for the mystery surrounding Mustang’s personal life to finally unravel.

MILITARY HEADQUARTERS — by Jason Vulderis — In this morning’s press conference, Fuhrer Grumman outlined Order 3081, a measure which would repeal the military’s longstanding anti-fraternization laws. In the ensuing media fracas, Grumman remained ever-jovial and kept his answers vague as to the rationale behind his proposal. When asked by reporters whether his decision had an ulterior motive having to do with taking another wife, Grumman merely smiled and remarked, seemingly to somebody standing offstage, “No, I wouldn’t dare besmirch the name of my late wife Eleanor by remarrying. It would be nice to have grandchildren, but in retrospect, perhaps this law is not mine to pass, since it is not meant for me.” Grumman made no further comments on to whom, exactly, his comment was directed.

UPDATE by perlaret — However, this announcement has already sparked widespread criticism from both civilian sectors and within the military itself. Major General Olivier Armstrong has already publicly condemned the move, citing the ways in which striking down this law undermines the chain of command, condones unprofessional behavior that often leads to favoritism, and especially exposes women, enlisted and commissioned, to sexual harassment and abuse.

» Dream~

I just had the most beautiful Royai dream in which I found an interactive game about them waking up together. I could choose positions, and the way they looked at each other and the things they said and stuff like that. And I was so happy I was going to post it on Tumblr.

Now I’m really sad. Somebody please create such thing.

Chapter excerpt:

As he sipped his drink, he got sight of a woman with black, shoulder-length hair taking a seat next to him. Her long blue dress had a cut on the side that exposed her flesh when she sat cross-legged.

"Whatever he’s having," she said to the bartender, a slight movement of the head indicating she referred to Roy, who had barely heard her voice due to the high volume of the music and ambient noise.

He chuckled. “So confident. What if my drink has poison?”

"Then I guess we’ll both die tonight, Roy." He flinched surprised at the sound of his name. How did she know? He looked into her big coffee eyes and made a double take, before bursting out laughing at the recognition. "Is it that amusing?" she asked.

"I’m sorry. It’s just…" He extended an arm and held a few strands of her hair. "You look splendid this evening, Elizabeth."


I want to talk about this scene. this MOMENT for a second.

This is the scene where Riza gets her neck cut. Once she’s cut and on the ground she ‘acts’ like she’s ok. but of course she really isn’t. but after taking a closer look on this gif i realized that she really WAS NOT ok and was TERRIFIED.  just look at her eyes. the first thing she does is look at Roy with this terrified look. then she just falls to the ground shocked. I always hated the part when this happens but discovering the fact on how terrified she really was makes me hate it a bit more. (despite the royai scenes) but i just felt this was important to point out



As the dreaded 100th anniversary of Lieutenant Colonel Hughes’ death draws near, myself and NoVaNoah have agreed that FMA fans should pay tribute to such a wonderful character by having a “Hughes Appreciation Week”! (FMAB/Manga and FMA 2003 continuations)

The idea is to create art, graphics, GIFs, fanfiction, videos - or anything else you can think of - showing your love for Hughes; your favourite scenes, favourite relationships, headcanons, AUs… anything to appreciate Hughes basically!

The appreciation week will run from next Monday onwards (28th July to 3rd August). As it was a bit of a last-minute decision between Nova and I, we haven’t decided yet whether we want to come up with themes/prompts for each day or just let everyone be freely creative. If you have any ideas for themes, feel free to message either one of us! We may also possibly run a competition or two… one of us will make an update this weekend if there’s anything to add.

If you’re interested in taking part (even if you don’t want to create anything, reblogs are always important!), reblog this post to spread the word so we can see how many people want to participate!

Spread the word guys, everyone’s favorite FMA dad deserves this and more!

If enough people joins, we’ve considered giving away prizes like art requests and edits requests and such. Think about it!~
