This. This right here is why I love Royai so much. This piece is so sad and beautiful and...there are just no words for how good this is.

I think this was one of the first Royai fics I've ever read, so I'm pretty sure it's at least partially responsible for the crazy obsession with these two I developed shortly afterwards. :) Really, this fic is amazing - the last few lines gave me goosebumps! Lovelovelove.

Aw, this is so lovely! I adore the chess metaphor when it comes to Roy and Riza. Always there to support and defend each other and make sacrifices for each other. Roy is very interesting when he's introspective. You wrote a great piece here.
And I wonder what Riza would think of Roy carrying the queen around in his pocket :D

I love how deeply you looked into the series connection with the game of chess. Each "Checkmate." kept building tension up until the end. Well done. You portrayed Roy quite well.

I am stunned. I've always liked the chess metaphor, but this brings me to a deeper level I never thought to explore before. I always imagined they would win, but what if they lose? Beautiful and touching. Very well done.

Yes he is being cliche, but sometimes thinking up a new allegory or metaphor just makes things worse.

This is... amazing. Ahh, how I wish I have an amazing ability like yours...
The story is a little choppy, but it was better that way, each thought flowing into the next.

AW! That was so cute! I loved it so much! Meep!

Very dramatic, great imagery. I'll have to admit that when I read that chapter of the manga, I went very fangirly for a while XD I liked how you stuck the word "checkmate" in between each section, so the word punctuates the entire fic.
You deserve a T-shirt that says I Portrayed Mustang Accurately.

You have captured it perfectly

Well constructed and defined.

Beautiful, sad, and touching. I loved this one!

That was...excellent, Mask.

*Sniffles* So sweet... ROYAI AND EDWIN RULE DA WORLD!

Ok, so i know this is an older story by you, but i'd read it before, but i had to come back and read it again because of chapter 62. (have you read it yet?) I have a suspicion that you're psychic or something. But let me tell you it made me so happy... a fanfic come true, in a way. Wow. Great job here again, the fact that there was a similar situation in the manga shows how in tune you are with the charcters... i really admire you. I hope you update some other stories too!
