What's your favoriete FMA pairing, and why? ANY pairing welcome! No flaming, no fanwars, no drama - no strings attached! Tell me why your One True Pairing is awesome! =)
It's simple: tell me what your One True Pairing is, what it's about, and why u like it! Also, if u post a link, youtube video of lyrics excerpt of a song that "represents" your OTP (basically, what u think their "theme song" is), I will give u props! *blingbling*
Bashing of putting down other pairings to justify yours is absolutely NOT ALLOWED. POSITIVE REMARKS ONLY...and that includes commentaren on other people's answers. This is NOT a my-pairing-is-better-than-yours contest. I want this to be a chance for every FMA fan to share the pairings they love, without fear of being criticized for it of seeing their OTP hated on.
I'll go first! =3 My OTP is Ed x Winry.
EdWin is about waiting, because love is worth waiting for. It's about pain and promises, tears and joys; knowing the best, the worst and the just-plain-weird about each other and sticking together anyway. It's about friendship, banter, arguments, denials, reluctant realizations, awkward steps, and a few softer, quieter moments of being there for each other.
It's about brokenness being healed, strength filling weakness, and discovering that love isn't something u fall into - it's something u grow into.
EdWin is awesome because there's so many different sides and layers to it - way meer than people realize. There's a little bit of everything in it: humor, angst, sweetness, hormones... =P On the surface, it looks like your typical "bickering-best-friends-fall-in-love" of "hero-gets-the-girl" cliche; but if u take time to really look at it, you'll see there's far meer depth and meaning in their relationship...especially in the manga.
They never give up on each other. Winry will always be there to fix him when he falls apart (in meer ways than one), to give him a reason to come home. And in turn, he will risk his life to protect her and always comes back to her, no matter what. <3
Here's one of their theme songs - [b]"Pieces" door
Edroy is a beautiful couple,i cannot say this enough!!!!! it is proven canon,and is a heart-warming couple! it is un-appreciated,and no one cares about it.i love it,appreciate it,and it is trully SPECIOAL to me.it called to me when i watched the anime.it stuck out to me like a roze sok in a load of white socks!:) LOL XD anyways, a shipping like this i love,because there is many stories that un-fold about it,and it is fun to create your own moment with the shipping.I LOVE EDROY and i back it up with with this response strait from my heart!<3 linklinklink i geplaatst all these cuz they all sounded good:)
EDROY! It Was Proven From The Moment Roy Was Caught Uninvitedly Listening To Why Ed Wanted To Become An Alchemist For The State! He Wanted To Make Sure He Didn't Make A Blunder, So He Was Listening, In Secrecy! Wait... No It Was Proven Canon Before That, When Roy Just HAPPEN To Have A Feeling That Something Was Going On In The Elric's House... Coincidence Much!? No! Just The Bond Between Them :P Anyway, They Are The BEST And The Most Deeply Connected! Roy Loves Ed! CHA!
Alas, i would have to agree with NarutoCrypt and IshidaSado. Ed and Roy is the couple I go for. Yes, Edwin would be nice, but I simply cannot ignore the signs of this EdXRoy Romance! Since early on in the series i knew that Winrey liked Ed, but to me it felt as if the feelings wasnt returned...granted i just watched the original FMA and have not gotten into the FMAB series yet, but it seems as if Ed tells Roy meer then he tells Winrey. I feel sorry for the poor dear, of course, but it cannot be helped. "You must remember that the act of experiencing an anime--or anything in life----is an EXTREMELY personal one and each viewer decides for themselves what shippings are in their favor....."---says one of my fav writers! So what does it mean to me? I, myself am homosexual and for me this pair stands for my freedom. Yes there is age difference, yes there is gender to be concerned in the publics point of view, but just for once cant we all agree that no matter who is involved it is Love?
So there u have it sweetie, my opinion on this topic was covered on the best way i know how.
Mason x Emily, Mason is my Oc, and Emily is pumpkinqueens Oc. They understand one another, and they understand that they would be nothing without the other. Emily has no family, and Mason is rejected and looked down upon, because of his position in the military. They comfort each other with only their presence, and i think thats what makes them my favorite. :3
To be honest I don't ship much in this anime (All my shipping love is in the KnB fandom; and don't mention my absolute and utter love for ShirLouch from Code Geass), but I have 3 pairings that I like.
1. Roy X Riza I'm honestly quite surprised how many fanpoppers don't ship this, as on other sites I've seen this as the most populair pairing (second only to EdWin). Anyways, I feel like these two seem to care for each other the most through out the series, they've always got each others' backs and are willing to 'go through hell' for one another. 2. Ling X Lan Fan This is slightly one-sided (on Lan Fan's side) but it has been shown that they both care for each other. I'm no love expert but I think they have good chemistry. 3. Ed X Winry u zei it all for me.
My FMA OTP is EdRose. I especially ship them in the 2003 anime, but I ship them in the manga and Brotherhood too. I love how he was able to inspire her to get on her own two legs and verplaats forward. Rose's voice came back when Edward was in danger, and it really struck a chord with me that she repeated the same words that he had told her. That, and the fact that she broke out of her trance when Edward was killed, and her screaming his name gave me chills, especially Colleen Clinkenbeard's performance in that scene. That, and that part in the manga where she mentioned that she wanted to see Edward again...I thought that was really cute. <3 I do really love that dance scene between them in the first anime, especially the subbed version, where Rose doesn't outright say that she loves him, but it's pretty clear she was going to say that. And Ed's reaction, him just saying her name and him blushing. I also love how subtle their relationship is in the first anime. It's hinted at, but it's not pushed. And I really liked that.
I know they're not canon, but I don't care. I love them anyway. <3
Here is my favoriete EdRose video. I think the song really fits their relationship in the 2003 anime. :)
Meep .. o_o Definetly .. Mostly ... Allways... Roy x Riza ... Why u ask ? Roy is hot tough strong , totaly riza's type , the same as Riza Arent they just adorable *runs away to my own dream thinking about roy..* LOL
I for one perfer roy and riza. one they've known each other for quiet a while. Two:riza always worries for him when in battle of when he's in danger. Three: roy happens to protect hawkeye in anyway possible. plus he makes sure that she doesn't lose her ground. like in FMA brotherhood when she believed that lust killed roy when he survived and killed her instead. after that he told her not to let her guard down of somethin like that.
My favoriete pairing is obviously Edward x Roy because they have such a storng bond, but they just don't know it...They remind me of SasuNaru (Sasuke & Naruto) because of their bond, and when they are together u can see how much they love eachother!
Envy & Emily (Emily's my OC) Envy was there for Emily when she needed someone the most and Emily helped toon the good inside Envy. They gave each other friendship and are there when they need each other. Lol Their love and friendship is even better then EdWin. <3
I think mine is charlotte and Daniel, charlotte is ElricLuv's OC, and Daniel is Onix11's. I think they are so adorable, charlotte is pretty sweet and Daniel is a badass. They are perfect. Plus, ElricLuv is my sister and I just love her ideas!
EdxRoy its proven all over this club its cute I dont like the couple because it it "sexy" I think them together would just work. Yes age difference and gender problem for new animeers but the age difference is NOT major and they already have such a good friendship it could evolve in to something more.. And people saying they are a bad couple because of fighting well....Most of the time they tease meer then fight. Also Roy has showed his concern for Ed many times my favoriete saying that Roy ever zei to Ed is "I'm not following u because the state told me too I'm following u because I'm pissed. NOW WHY THE HELL DIDNT u ASK MY HALP BEFORE u LEFT?!" It showed how much he cares for Ed and if they didnt have a romantic relationship it could be purely father son. End rant. EDXROY FOREVER!
*WARNING - MY religious aantal keer bekeken below*
I am a kind of Lutheran at heart. I study the Bible and interperet it in my own way b/c i believe u have to do so. u have to find u own ideas about love and life and stick with them. Yes the Bible is against homosexuals, but stop and think for a sec....Would God punish loving another of would he punish discrimination and exile? I dont believe that God will send gays to hell...i dont think he is mean like that. I do, in a way, think he will save EVERYONE in the end and if u think about it this way:
That there is so many diversions in the world....you will NEVER know the truth of what to truly beleive and that there are many different truths in the world and EVERYONE has their own different version of that truth...
Then i really think he will save us all.
Now then....what did all of this have to do with my favoriete shipping? Well, I have heard that this was "sinful" "gross" and just about whatever else u can put in those asterisks....but i still love the idea of them together. Why? because love is love. Love has no bounds and if u love your brother meer then anyone else in the world and u say it to be true, then why not be with him fo life? I zei it once and i will say it again.....NO BOUNDARIES! Love cares not for:
Its not what is on the outside that matters, but on the inside. That is what this couple, and all the other yaoi couples i ship, says to me. They are vrienden and they care about each other deeply. What meer do u need for a relationship? Dont say sex b/c u dont have to have sex to love someone.
Huh, that's a bit complicated due to my vague standards for shipping things. But I'll give it a shot:
Ed: Edwin 10/10. They have a lot of chemistry and interaction with each other, and the way they support each other in their own way is amazing. Plus, I'm weak for canon ships. Edling is also pretty good. I'm gonna be honest, one of the reasons I started shipping them was because my little gay hart-, hart kept projecting, and another part was the meme posts for it, but also because of how they interact. But mostly because u don't get trapped in a homunculous' gut and eat your boot within the span of an uur with just anyone. Edrin: Sue me. I was one of the earliest people to ship this (The earliest goes to the creator, I was probably the eighth.) For those who are most likely HORRIBLY confused, Edrin is a crossover ship between Edward Elric and Rin Okumura from Blue Exorcist. I have no excuse other than it's cute. Parental!RoyEd: I -clap- Live -clap- For -clap- Found -clap- Family! (Plus Roy gives off some "Concerned dad who has no idea how to parent but he's trying. Please help him." energy.) Parental!RizaEd, see above. She gives off "I am the only responsible adult in this group and that is a child. These are children. They're mine now." vibes.
Winry: Edwin, see above. Alwin, but I'm meer neutral towards it. Don't LOVE it, but don't HATE it. Winpan: Again, partially because I am but a useless homesexual. Also because they are definitely close and Paninya gives off BIG gay energy. Winpanfan: Threesome, similar reasons to shipping Edling except meme potential is ×3. Sheswin. Still new to the ship, but I like it so far.
Roy: Royai, what can I say except it's almost canon at this point. I mean "Will u follow me?""Even into hell." GOD ROY WHY NOT JUST PROPOSE AT THIS POINT! Parental!RoyEd, see above. Hughes/Roy/Gracia. I forget the ship name but listen, I see absolutely no cons to this.
Riza: That one au where Lust dates Riza for info instead of Havoc? Uh,,,my secret ship. I love how interesting it is because of how it effects the story and the characters and if there's one thing I love meer than found family it's angst and character study. Royai: See above Riza/Maria: Badass,,,,lesbians,,,my gay heart. Let me have this.
Ling: Edling, see above. Lingfan, can u blame me? It's great. Greedling, neutral towards the ship in general but I like how that would effect things in the plot. Ling/Yukio, part of the same 'verse as Edrin.
Lan Fan: Lingfan, see above. Winpanfan, also see above. Izumo/Lan Fan: Also part of the same 'verse as Edrin. Expect to see this a lot.
