WHY is RoyEd such a được ưa chuộng pairing??

Okay, before any angry Yaoi fangirls jump on me, let me make this clear: I DON'T CARE IF bạn SHIP ED AND ROY TOGETHER. IT'S OKAY. bạn are free to love, hate and pair up whoever bạn want. I respect that, and I'm not trying to shove my opinions down anyone's throat. So please relax.

I'm asking this because I'm genuinely confused and squicked out bởi the EdRoy pairing, and I can't for the life of me understand why so many những người hâm mộ ship it, and I want to find out why people are so crazy about it.

Here are the issues I have with this pairing:

1) The age/power difference. Come on, a 15-year-old kid and a 30-year-old man? That's just...ew. And I would be EQUALLY squicked out bởi this if it were a yuri hoặc het pairing, BTW. I don't care who's a girl and who's a guy; the age difference would still be gross to me.

2) It's really out-of-character for both of them. Realistically, I can't see Ed crushing on a man he despises who's at least 15 years older than him. Likewise, I can't see Roy lusting after a teenage boy at all. And for another thing, I see no hints that either of them are remotely gay. It's clear that they both like girls, and there's no real evidence that they have the hots for each other. None that I can see, anyway.

I realize that neither squick nor OOCness nor un-canon-ness can stop anyone from shipping anything, but still...I don't understand how so many fans can seriously ship this.

Again, I'm not saying any of this to bash RoyEd hoặc its fans, and I'm not trying to start any fanwars. bạn like RoyEd? Ship away to your heart's content. I won't get in the way. These are just honest các câu hỏi I have, and I'd like to hear your answers. Why do bạn think this is such a được ưa chuộng pairing in the FMA fandom?

That's all very true. I don't mind Ed/Roy so long as the writer has up-aged Edward hoặc down-aged Mustang, so long as they're both AT LEAST 20. Damn, I've gotten old. Post Script: I suspect the reason I prefer Ed/Roy to Roy/Ed has A LOT to do with the power inequality.

About your concerns....
1. If tình yêu knows no bounds (which it doesnt!) Then Age, race, and yes, even gender should not matter.

2. They dont flat out HATE each other! Its all play fight. They both know that one couldnt last a một giây without the other! They say all that stuff because they care for one another! And if they did like each other (b/c bạn are saying that they dont) It wouldnt be lust. Do bạn think that gay relations hoặc age difference means it HAS TO BE lust?

......About your main question. Maybe it is so được ưa chuộng b/c we are all just wishing to see a slight understanding in the world for homosexuals. We are still hoping that maybe there is a time when we are not shunned and pushed aside......just for our tình yêu going in a different direction then the được ưa chuộng view on it.

Maybe this video will give bạn an idea....

To be completely honest, i HATE the RoyEd pairing. It doesn't make sense. The age difference is gross, and uncalled for. If she had intended them to be together(Which she didn't) She would have made them around the same age. She meant EdWin, and that's it. End of story. I'm not in on the người hâm mộ war, but i just want to make a point, RoyEd is FANON! EdWin is CANON! There's a difference between the two...

Yeah, but that doesn't mean people can't ship them. Canon, fanon, who cares. It's a matter of opinion. I accept your's, and I see why bạn don't like RoyEd, but please don't imply that canon is better than fanon. I mean, just look at Masaya and Ichigo! Perfectly canon, perfectly disaster. Almost every người hâm mộ of Tokyo Mew Mew hates the only canon couple. There are exceptions to 'canon is better', but, please, don't bring in what tác giả meant for. Shipping is specifically for what những người hâm mộ want, unless it's in the actual work. Don't act like everyone likes canon better fanon pairings, please. I understand and accept your opinion, though.

I wasn't saying that they can't ship them. I was only saying that there is a difference between the two, and that sometimes people cant recognize it.(not you, of course) I didn't mean to come off as saying one was better than the other. People can ship what they want, of course, but this is just my opinion., that

I know this is old, but I don't see actual các câu trả lời as to why beyond "they're hot together."

Saying that "they don't get along" is a poor counter because bạn have a lot of the same antagonistic dynamic between EdRoy as bạn do with EdWin. Opposites attract is a thing. While Winry's interest in Ed is well established, I *don't* think Ed's reciprocated interest is. That means when they get together, it feels like it’s the stereotypical ending instead of an earned one.

Onto why I enjoy the ship from someone who actually ships them. Ed is a fascinating character to me, and so is Roy. Winry really isn’t. It’s not that she isn’t well-developed is just not as interesting to me. I like Winry, I just don’t like her *with Ed.* The juxtaposition of Ed’s maturity based on his trauma and the immaturity of still being young is interesting, and further complicated bởi how smart he is. I can very easily see Roy as 1) someone who isn't picky about gender and 2) very attracted to intelligence and competence, both of which Ed has IN SPADES. Roy is overt about flirting with women, but even in-world, it's established that it's largely a facade. I can see Ed being attracted to Roy for similar reasons. Honestly, the fact that Roy blatantly pulls Ed's chain so often feels pretty similar to a boy pulling on the pigtails of a girl he likes.

They're also both very damaged individuals, and I think that their traumas give them an empathy with one another that few others have.

I know the age gap is a deal breaker for a lot of people. In Ed's case, even when he's immature, there's a weight and metaphorical age he has gained through what he's been through. I think he'd relate much thêm to someone like Roy and I think he actually has much thêm in common with someone like Roy than peers his own age.

That isn't to say there aren't problems inherent with shipping them. For me, thêm than the age gap is the power dynamic issue. There are very good reasons why nonfraternization policies exist. The potential for abuse in that situation is *huge* and shouldn't be ignored. Particularly because Roy was the one who recruited Ed in the first place.

The solve I see in good fics (and I use in my own) is that Ed is usually the one to make the first move. Roy making a di chuyển on Ed has too much potential to read as squicky between the age difference and power dynamic. Fortunately, Ed is a character who is proactive, so having him decide to make a di chuyển makes sense. Most good fics (at least ones that aren't blatant AUs) even have Roy having issues with the age difference and the power dynamic, and them dealing with those as being factors in the relationship.

There’s nothing wrong with Ed marrying his childhood friend, but to me, Roy/Ed is a 1000x thêm interesting.

And yes, they're hot together.

I agree that under the snarky surface, they do care a lot about each other. I see 0 hard evidence that's it's ROMANTIC (you don't see them blush, get awkward around each other, etc), but there's definitely a strong and awesome friendship there. =)

And I have two other things to say.

1- Age difference really doesn't matter.
2- Ed starts as 12, not 15 XD

Because people seem to tình yêu to shove Yaoi in everything, I don't understand it myself. The one thing I do hate about yaoi, is when it's những người hâm mộ start saying their pairing is Canon. Umm....did they date? Are they married? Did they kiss...hug? Say they tình yêu each other? Then they're not Canon! It's just a Fan-Made pairing! If you're true những người hâm mộ bạn would be able to except it as that, I do that with all my Yaoi pairings.

I actually DO like some Yaoi and I don't mind other pairings. But once bạn start pairing brothers together hoặc people 20 years apart, that's were I draw the line. That makes me sick, it's not just yaoi it's for everything. It can be brother/sister, sister/sister, hoặc brother/brother. It's wrong and not right. All pairings like that are sick! I hate pairings like RoyEd and even RizaEd, they're like 30 years apart in age! It's just not right!! Go ahead and ship people like l and Light(Death Note), that doesn't bother. But do NOT ship sibling and people far apart in age together! How would bạn feel if it was happening in real life? I beat bạn wouldn't feel the same about it.

Now I don't watch hoặc read Yaoi at all, the Yaoi I like is just sweet and cute pictures. bạn now like them hugging hoặc even a Kiss on the cheek. Nothing to big, I mean I like some Kiss pictures, but do not go over board.

This is the kinda Yaoi I like, just sweet and nothing over board.

Okay, well I would like to say just because your saying bạn don't want to troll on other people for what they like, but just bởi making a whole thing out of it is really stupid. If bạn hate, it then avoid it and get on with your life. But to answer your question, Royed is such a được ưa chuộng pairing because poeple like yaoi. Roy giống ngựa rừng ở mể tây cơ, mustang is a sexy man and Edward Elric is a sext boy. Plus, they're not that far apart. 15 years, big whoop. My parents are 16 years apart and as happy as can be. Are bạn saing it's wrong for people to be with the poeple they love? Also, the girls crush on them and Roy and Ed have a relationship like children, they don't know what to do with it so they they take it out on eachother. So that is why they are such a được ưa chuộng pairing and once again, just beacuse bạn say bạn don't want any angry Yaoi những người hâm mộ (doesn't have to be just fangirls there are a lot of guys who like it too) just bởi making this page means that bạn will get them and they will be pissed.
So to the Yaoi những người hâm mộ of RoyEd, follow this link: link

Okay...Im not trying to make anyone mad when I say this.

Personally, I dont HATE RoyEd, I just dont think its a good pairing.
Why, bạn ask?
I just dont think Ed and Roy are gay.
I mean, giống ngựa rừng ở mể tây cơ, mustang is the straightest guy I know! Do bạn know how many dates he goes on with girls? He dates so many girls! Seriously, read the manga...
And Ed on the other hand isnt really the romantic type, but definitely isnt gay. He marries Winry for crying out loud! (Sorry if I spoiled it).
Now I saw someone bring up how in the COS movie, Havoc says that Riza's not the one Roy's waiting for. And that automatically means 'Roy loves Ed'? Wtf? Roy and Ed are friends, and wouldnt any normal person be sad when one of their Những người bạn disappears? Think logically, not just in ways that make RoyEd seem real.

IM SORRY IF I OFFENDED ANYBODY!!!!! D': THESE ARE SIMPLY MY OPINIONS!

As long as something exists, there will always be all kinds of drawings and Yaoi of it. Even winry could be turned into a man (it has actually been done haha XD) to be with Ed and Riza into a man with Roy. It's whatever the những người hâm mộ choose to do with them that matters. Don't worry, bạn can always pair Ed with that winry girl if bạn feel they should truly be together. Same with me; Ed belongs with Roy forever and ever. <3

RoyEd is a được ưa chuộng pairing because of several reasons, and of course there's the shippers that ship just to ship, and others who like to see them interacting. People like the conflict and the arguing and sparks that they'll inevitably send off. It's like an AriesxAries relationship; {Talking about Western zodiac} very exciting and exhilarating. I mean, of course there'll be the shippers because they're two very hot guys, then there's the OOC'ers, but that happens to nearly every pairing. {Less so with canon pairings, but bạn know what I mean} I don't really read hoặc look at OOC stuff. I can't stand it. A lot of romantic relationships are 'vicious' in the, uh, real world, I guess, and those relationships where they aren't seen as something to constantly be coddled are welcomed bởi a wider variety of people.I understand the problem with the age differences. I sound so picky, but I'm not willing to read shonen-ai's and yaois when Ed is so young- thêm like when he's twenty hoặc something. Yes, Colonel Bastard ages with Ed, but at least Ed's legal! Unfortunately I've only watched the 2003 airing and that makes this pairing *cough* tricky, so no spoilers if bạn want to argue any of my points T.T. A lot of RoyEd shippers knew it was a futile hope from the beginning, what with Riza, bạn know, existing, but are happy with our fanarts. I hope this helps bạn understand it from a shipper's view, though I doubt it, I'm not very good at this kind of thing :'D
