| northvilla chapter 1 . 5/13
Beautfully crafted, and extremely accurate depiction of the difficult relationship that Roy Mustang and Riza Hawkeye have, as portrayed by Arakawa.
Fanfictions often suffer from a few things. Over-reliance on fanservice/shipping, inaccurate portrayal of characters and their relationships, and just plain amateurish writing. This story suffers from NONE of that, and really shows an accurate relationship between the two. The writing is very well crafted. I really appreciate the addition of Roy's disappointment on seeing Riza sleeping with another man. Too often these kinds of stories put archetypical angel-like qualities on people (ie. Riza's celibacy in many Royai fanfics), and I just think it's utter bullshit. This story correctly and wonderfully captures how these two continue to love each other over the years, despite having different romantic and sexual partners in the meantime, and finally ships them at the end.
RECOMMEND! Great Story!

This is like, the only semi-realistic portrayal I've seen of this. It's balanced, perfect parts desperation and desire with restraint and even guilt. The part where he knocked on her door and she had someone else there, mind blown, that was just like...gah, so en pointe. I hate it when people portray Riza as like, idk this celibate whatever being except for Roy. Idk, this was really excellent, will definitely re-read.

This story is like, EXACTLY my headcanon for this pairing! Roy and Riza are so in character, the story is so "blissfully" angsty... Just like what we already know of their background. Thank you só much fo writing it!

Hii this is my first type writing a review, I usually don't though I have to say this! Your ending was sweet and so in characer and I know it's your story but some how I just can't get it out of my head that it would be perfect if the ending sentence was something like this : Roy decided that a general should have a wife, so he got himself Riza. ") just my humble opinion ")

| Emmi chapter 1 . 1/17/2013
This is such a beautifully written story! I especially liked the sentence:
"Riza," he whispered, touching her face. "Riza," he whispered, touching her hair. "Riza," he whispered, touching her lips."
It was so beautiful, I re-read it a few times, I must admit.
