That was unbelievably beautiful. The emotion you draw from these characters is powerful, and it hit me as a reader hard. Yours is the first fic I've found regarding Roy burning the tattoo from Riza's back(I found it through pure luck with a link on a ridiculously old forum), and I honestly don't think it could have been handled any better. When I pictured the scenario between the two of them, I pictured something almost exactly like this, so thank you for putting such intense imagery into words. I absolutely loved it.

I love Riza and Roy. Their personality and their relationship. You depicted them so beautifully here. You really captured the depth of their characters and brought out the hope and commitment in their lives.

THIS IS THE BEST THING I'VE EVER READ.
okay. okay. calm down for the coherent review.
so - things i loved:
how suicide was addressed. how the war was horrifying and the effects it had on roy and riza, but you didn't descend into purple prose. how roy took cArE oF rISa aGh oh my gOD and "you WANTED me to kill you?" and "you would make me shoulder your burdens for you?" and "unaware that she was only two seats behind him" just kill me now this whole thing is perfect i love you now

Fucking fantastic (excuse my French). This… we need more of this on the archive. This was such a refreshing, raw, realistic read, and it was just so satisfying on this subject the manga and anime glazed over. I actually don’t mind Arakawa leaving the tattoo scenario vague, but either way you really did write this in-depth to high standards. I’m a huge Roy/Riza fan, and I really think this one-shot did a great job at deepening their relationship, how it began and how it developed. You really got me with the emotions, too; I was squirming in my seat from the discomfort of Riza getting burned, I felt Roy’s guilt, I felt both of the characters terror and sorrow. And then at the end, the note of hope. Ah, I just love it! Quality Fanfiction work, thank-you for the read.

I think this was a really good take on this event. I like where you went with it. I think it was good. And the note you ended on was perfect.

I just. There are no words.

This is stunning.
The way you portray Riza's emotions and Roy's emotions with such skill is just...wow. Really wow. Please never stop writing.

This was brilliant. Utterly fantastic.
It fit the canon excellently, as far as character portrayal went, and your prose was wonderfully intense.
Great job, really. Looks like your going to be my second favorite in this fandom as well as the first. ]
