I love this story! You are such a good writer and I’d love to see how it ends!

So I literally just found this fic, and I got really excited because I am really interested in virtually any fic that explores Roy’s background and family (what can I say? I’m a stickler for ‘orphan finds their biological family fics’). I am very sad to see that this hasn’t been updated in almost eight years, since I have thoroughly enjoyed reading this fic so far, it’s very nicely written and I love how well you have written the characters and their interactions with one another, it’s been thoroughly enjoyable! I also really loved the segments of Roy’s parents, I think they were really sweet and David’s end was quite tragic, you did a really good job of making the reader connect with him and like his character within such a short time, so props to you!
Unfortunately, I doubt you will see this review given the time that has passed, however just wanted to let you know that I thoroughly enjoyed this story! And I will be left wondering about how the reunion between Roy and his mother would have gone, and how everything else would have turned out.
Thank you for the story!

I love this story so far and I'm dying for a conclusion. I thought your OCs were very well written and likeable (except for the bad guys of course XD) I hope you find the inspiration to finish one day.

Haa haa! LOL! I loves Mustang's reaction!

Did you change the timeline for this? Because Roy was 29 when Ed was 16 and if Elias was born in 1920 and Ed's 34, since he was supposed to have been born in 1899 then wouldn't he be 14? I'm kinda confused here.

Really interesting story of Roy's past! I love Roy's and Ed's relationship with each other. I hope you'll update soon! I'll try to wait patiently!
| Queen Bovine chapter 8 . 8/13/2012
This is hilarious! The plot is pretty good, and I really like how you incorporated Mustang's past into it. It's no leap to imagine him having Xingese blood.
My favorite part was in ch. 2, when you indirectly mentioned the Mustache of Doom. I think I might count that explanation as canon from now on, both because I hate the Doom-stache and because I can easily imagine Ed drawing something ugly on Roy's picture.
I'd beg for an update, but seeing as how it's already been about a year...
| Wolftimber chapter 8 . 6/5/2012
Wow, really well done! I hope you are planning on continuing this story!

I like the geography talk. Random comment, I guess, but I do!

Reading more, I still agree with my first review saying that you need to work on your Winry.
This part, for example:
"If a woman like Riza Hawkeye could help someone reach their goal, then so could she. Mentally, Winry began to think up the rough draft of a basic automail arm."
You are trying to stitch together cause and effect, but I don't buy it. I do believe Riza influenced Winry, but you make it seem like Winry drew up blueprints for Ed's arm based on this interaction. It's not canon at all. Ed himself was the one to suggest automail and Pinako was the expert designer at this stage.
I only complain about this because the rest of the characterizations are fine. Your writing in general is entertaining and I like the plot you're building. If you're this good now, you can definitely improve, so I feel free to complain about the one character that seems off.
(By the way, Den is female. I forgot to mention that last time.)
| Pajaro Negro chapter 1 . 7/10/2011
I was liking the story, but you need to work on your Winry characterization. I don't like the wrench throwing at the back of Ed's head in front of their kids. It's too much of a gag, out-of-character with older Winry, and not something that I can reasonably believe canon Winry would do as a parent.
Even if you go by anime Winry (who threw wrenches at Ed much more often than manga Winry), Winry only throws stuff at Ed in the early part of the series.
It is jarring when fanfic authors overuse things that characters come to be associated with. Instead of funny, it just comes off as weird.
| Evil Little Dog chapter 1 . 6/12/2011
This is a great opening for your story. I love that Ed's still friends with Havoc and Breda, enough that the kids refer to them as 'uncle'.
