akajdkslslskdlslajshakejdieidjakakznxkdkskak I'm dead. This fic had murdered me and I'm dead
Aaahhhh I can't believe that Riza and Roy were still separated until the very end when they died. I'm so sad because they spent basically 15 years apart aksndksk But in the end, I am happy that they went together after Roy achieved his goal in turning Amestris into a democracy. And that Iolanth understood exactly what was going on, because I do feel bad for her, for being married to a man who would never love her back. Your writing was fantastic, and thank you for sharing this fic!

I know this fic is old, so forgive me, but I honestly liked this fic anyway. I say I liked it, which is true- I daresay I loved it- as much of an emotional rollercoaster as it was! It felt in character, and the emotions felt real, and while some OCs detract from a story that definitely wasn't the case with Iolanth. I really appreciated the way you ended it; though it was undoubledly a sad ending, because of the circumstances- they accomplished their goals, had many more years of life, made Amestris a democracy, and them passing side by side and having actually said that they loved each other, as well as they themselves being surprisingly at peace with it- I myself was left with a sense of peace that made it bittersweet as opposed to feeling like it ending like a deathfic. So I really appreciated the way you handled that, and loved your writing. I know this was written in 2011 but wanted to say it anyway! I'm workingy way up through your works and have loved everything!

"Will you please tell your secret admirer to just send bouquets like a normal person?" No, he is the Fuhrer, and I get mare vases out of it.

Hey, when did Ed and Winry get married? Did anyone go to that?
| Lilac Gemini chapter 8 . 6/13/2014
I feel bad for Iolanth, and hoping more than anything the talk will go smoothly and they will get divorced and marry who they loved. I really hope that happens.
There's this ad for custom badges and one of them shown is for a lieutenant... Hawkeye...
| Lilac Gemini chapter 6 . 6/13/2014
I hate... Neither of them. Neither Roy nor Iolanth wanted to do this. It was simply political, like in Mulan 2, how the princesses didn't want to but knew they had to. I kind of hope they can get divorced, though, and both go live their dream lives. Be free, be free!

Awww, Hawkeye baby! I bet she's sad because he got engaged to someone else. Why is he getting married to Iolanth, anyways? Hawkeye's good too!

Not that I didn't see it coming, but now I question my sanity. Why am I torturing myself with all these Royai angst? First mebh, then you. Not to mention I've been indulging in Bookworm's fluffs before this. The extreme's too great for my poor heart.
Between 'Here Dead We Lie' and this, two of the angstiest Royai I've ever read, I don't think I can read anything lighthearted for time being. That include writing my own fanfic because I can't concentrate on it anymore.
I've grown quite fond of Iolanth. I imagine she'd be a good friend of Riza had they met in different circumstance. Hell, I resent Roy for causing all these mess in the first place, because he hadn't only ruined his life and Riza's, he had stolen Iolanth's supposedly happy future as well.
I laughed for Breda and Havoc the whole time they tried to stall the bewildered McPhee, I also like how you write the dynamics between Havoc and Riza in your fics. But Chris/Breda, man, didn't expect that.
Fuery, oh. That poor little soldier. His words impact me the most in this fanfic, because you've written him so well, that he's so perceptive underneath his demure self. I'd like Ed to appear somewhere here too, perhaps saying something bitter, but...
I'm sorry I can't come up with anything resembling a proper review because my head is still a jumbled mess, so just bear the knowledge you've devastated yet another Royai fan who envy you for your solid narrative and strong characterizations.

I love the story! But i wanna shoot you now x.x

...This is absolutely amazing, but why the sad ending? I'm not mad about it. But... I thought they were going to get each other at last. When I read that Roy and Iolanth - whom I came to like very much, btw - were divorced, my heart leaped with joy, because now Roy and Riza were free to marry each other... And they lived happily ever after, and so on...
But then they didn't. I mean... they died happy, but...why did they have to?
