What a rollercoaster! You have an amazing way with words.
I adored Grumman in this and in fact everywhere he has appeared. Gosh - his story to the kids was adorable.
I always find your ocs quite compelling also and that's not an easy thing to do.
This Royai shipper is thoroughly enjoying your work.
I' off to check out the prequel next. :-)

When the end credits rolled on FMAB, I felt like I was losing friends. I grew to love each of the characters and I knew I was going to miss them terribly. So thank you for bringing them back and letting me be a part of their lives again. And for giving them an even happier ending. I'm certain Arakawa would be pleased with your stories (and just as flattered at the comparisons). Thank you are sharing your talent with us!

I read this trilogy all in one sitting. At first, I did not think that there would ever be the perfect FMA sequel fic(s). (and I wasn't wrong hihi)
But /this trilogy/. By God, it's near perfection. Your characterization, your writing, your plotmaking. Are you absolutely, positively sure you're not Arakawa? Because I wouldn't be surprised if you were!
This trilogy had me hooked from beginning to end. And though I ship them hard, this is the first story involving Royai where I actually thought it was /valid/ for them to get married. You made me tear up at some parts, made me gasp (out loud!) at others. And you made the plot up as you went? /WOW/!
Please do not stop writing! You have a great talent you should never give up on.

Your story is exactly what I'd like to happen to everyone after the Promise Day. Kudos! You're awesome! Can't stop reading this and I'm supposed to be studying! Hahaha

Words cannot express my love for this trilogy. First of all, let me congratulate you on being the first author to ever actually bring tears to my eyes-from happiness as well as despair. Your language was beautifully crafted throughout the stories and painted an image unlike other fics. I felt like I was reading a professionally published novel-or perhaps the plotline for the next FMA movies ;) ? Regardless, this trilogy was full of love, anger, tragedy, humor, friendship, fluff, angst, familial bonds, suspense... You managed to intertwine almost every possible genre offered on this site, and you did so so tactfully. There wasn't any obtrusive plot jumps; everything flowed smoothly without fault.
You have honestly warmed my heart as I type this review, tears in my eyes and a doofus smile plastered on my face. (And no, I'm not exaggerating.) This was recommended to me by the admin of a fanpage on instagram ( haru_chan_san) and I managed to read the entire trilogy in a span of four hours, with homework/dinner breaks.
Despite all I've said, I feel I haven't said quite enough to express the praise you and this story deserves. As soon as I finished the first volume I knew I would have quite a lot to say, and boy was I right. At this point I feel like I'm drabbling on more than reviewing, forgive me. You made these characters REAL, though. I saw disgruntled Ed and cocky Roy exchanging banter when Ed was called to Ishbal in the first installment. I saw Winry's gorgeous gown, Lan Fan's gown, Riza's gown... You painted these images so well. You have achieved what most authors on this site (myself included) try to-you've created a mini motion picture within the readers' heads! And you did so without overdoing any of the details; you didn't drown us with adjectives or adverbs. You simply expressed and what a job you did with it!
Congratulations on an amazing story, over 100k words and 300 reviews. Lady Norbert, as a fellow author, I can only hope to someday craft something as wonderful as this.

Scar and the Lady general, that right there MATCH. got to happen.
although in a lot fo ways I think the Gnerall is sorta lucky in her assighments,s he nearly only does defensive works, repelling invaders rue and meeting chargers and all but she ONLY deals with military forces on BOTH sides, civillians are not something she could handle, good thing she doesn't want to be a queen of it all.
they are lucky that they have only had to faced essentially military targets really, poor guys would break otherwise.
So, I like how much you've kind of removed the alchemy in a lot of ways but also... where beith the alchemy? cause a lot of these guysa re the power houses fo the world.
well you've used it a couple times here and there tog reat effect and its awesome! just lots of situaitons tha t using some applications could have been fun, although I admit that the cournel with his fire type stuff is HARD to come up with stuff that isn't fire blast and all. still, poor bastardos.
| Leicontis chapter 23 . 8/1/2013
Wow. Just... wow. The Elemental Chess Trilogy is one of the best fics I have ever read, full stop. You give the characters the room to be themselves, and in so doing bring about compelling action, heartwarming fluff, and laugh-out-loud-and-almost-fall-out-of-my-chair comedy.
| emachookie chapter 22 . 6/10/2013
Definitely more complex than the previous two but really fun to read! :)
| Zarina3908 chapter 9 . 5/17/2013
No! Bad author! Poor Hawkeye (I guess I'm a bit like Ed) she really is taking an emotional beating from this story.
| BellaRichart chapter 5 . 4/22/2013

| CleverIllusionist chapter 23 . 1/24/2013
Just got done reading all three stories in this series in one (fairly disjointed) go. Kudos to you as an author, I enjoyed it from start to finish.
| Skwrl chapter 23 . 1/3/2013
Thank you for writing this awesome trilogy!
I apologize for the lack of reviews, but that's just because I've been so busy at clicking the "Next" button and haven't wanted to stop reading ;)
I really hope your muses never desert you! Keep up the good work, and please write more Roy/Riza and/or general FMA greatness!
| FarGreenCountrySwiftSunrise chapter 23 . 12/23/2012
Thanks for answering the questions and thanks for writing this series. It's one of my favorites.
| jayfeather97 chapter 23 . 12/10/2012
I've seen your trilogy floating around in people's favourites for a while, but finally decided to click on Triumvirate by chance and boy am I glad! I usually avoid plotfics, but yours is really a gem among all gems, satisfying enough to be a book! (: I really hope you'll continue writing for the FMA fandom, would be delighted if your name arrives in my alerts ;)
Thank you for the really enjoyable read!
